Nobody likes a sucker, especially the kind that fall for fruit tarts like you. I knew there was trouble. I could smell it on the hot evening breeze. Fortunately for me, trouble is my favorite thing… Because I’m Joe Milkshake. I kicked down the door with one swift, decisive motion.

I think no one would object if Republicans changed their mind to nominate a "white female" as their candidate. Just a reminder though, no Trump in drag, according to Republican policies that is no woman, right?

I mean, it's not wrong. There is a chance and obviously a scientist might not want responsibility over securing samples properly. It's just the chance of something bad happening is really low and certainly much lower than any doomsday person is making up.

Just to lessen to concern about the permafrost viruses. Those viruses are frozen since very long ago, and are certainly not adapted to any life as it is now on the planet or especially in the area they are found. Which also means, unlikely to infect a human just because they come in contact.

Of course viruses can adapt, but this basically has a similar risk as the bird flu jumping over to humans. Potentially even less since these viruses may not even be able to infect any lifeforms from the start.

No, that's not really how it works. They are still "conventional" viruses and the immune system is as good or as bad against them as against others. They still need to infect to be successful themselves and that chance is definitely lower.

Chance of infection is a bit of a binary choice, they cannot just infect a cell in your body "a little bit". They are either adapted or not. Now if they manage to jump into an animal that is close to what they originally infected, then mutate enough within those animals to get close to infecting a human, then we might have a problem on our hands. But as I said, we already have that with e.g. the bird flu.

This is such a quintessential American question. Never in my life have I had to donate my hard earned money to a political candidate, it is such a strange concept to me.

Same boat almost, not even sure when I bought it, 2016 maybe. Keep wondering when they will do something to it so it stops working well.

It's not even a choice, bro. Glocktopus for life!

Hey everyone, this guy's loaded!

It runs on hundreds of servers. If any of them ran windows they might be out but unless you got an account on them you'd be fine with the rest. That's the whole point of federation.

Shattered Pixel Dungeon. If you like Roguelikes.

Yeah, they didn't know he is Mr. Codanchips @lemmy.world?

Stop! He's already dead!

Because other articles cite about 350 (heh, inb4 three-fiddy) for the whole of Valve. This is just Steam.

That's OK, you can also play it if you hate Roguelikes.

This is the answer...

... to get him fired.

Haha, downvote me all you want. Your job's IT is blocking this, going around it is very stupid, unless you don't care about your job.

You cannot do that if being closeted and shamed is your kink.

This guy has been living in East Germany since fucking 1985. It saddens me to read this. Fuck the AfD.

And then you applied the concept to your username before registering here? Thats dedication.

How the fuck does anyone think its a good idea to keep people from vaccinating? They realise the virus just keeps spreading globally if any one country keeps having it in circulation? Just bizarre. Just like Russia.

They provided the backup e-mail address

Upon receiving the recovery email from Proton Mail, Spanish authorities further requested Apple to provide additional details linked to that email, leading to the identification of the individual.

Just in case anyone thinks they decrypted mails and handed them over, nope. I hadn't thought about that "settings" are not encrypted. Guess if you want to stay anonymous you shouldn't add your private mail address in there as a backup.

I think these either need the beak to be a bit irregularly shaped or needs a black line inside the beak to make it more clear this isn't just a big hole in the face but an actual bird beak.

But other than that its great! And that's of course just my personal opinion, you do you!

Someone at Reddit had Blockchain missing in their buzzword bingo for 2023, I swear.

He's just one big buoyant boy.

...from Tesla.

She later said Telstra had contacted her and offered a free Fetch box, which she acknowledged was a “reasonable resolution”.

And we have learned exactly nothing here. See you in 2 years when Fetch closes down and you are not getting anything back because you actually did not "buy" those movies on Fetch but on the previous platform.

Yeah, exactly. I find the shilling for MacOS a bit concerning, already from the article and also the comments.

A Mac feels more like yours than Windows? Just goes to shows how shitty Windows has become, not how MacOS is better.

Anyone here not using an open source launcher after this announcement is seriously learning nothing from this. You are just trusting the next company that either already or eventually will go the same way. Like the dude mentioning Microsoft launcher as alternative, that one has branch analytics baked in as well as far as I remember.

The article is talking about lorry drivers making trips for work though. I am not sure I understand the need for the drivers to conceal their location while they work?

But otherwise I agree.

There have been examples of the past where martyrs did change the direction of history. Maybe he hoped it would be similar and I guess we are at the find out stage.

Maybe I missed it but my ultimate pet peeve of these articles about scientific breakthroughs is that they neither credit a single name of a scientist in their article nor even just putting a single link to the work. I know its likely behind a paywall (darn you scientific publishing), but still!

I browsed a bit through Nature Communications and haven't seen the article...
