People do that with human friends, at least ones you meet irl, your brain is constantly subconsciously judging everyone around you in your vision and hearing. There will be some visual traits of people that a given person will subconsciously shy away from and that’s before we even get into people that would be considered shallow or racist.

I would like to think that, while they felt strongly to the point of unlawful action about various things, they still recognised that some things in there are sacred and represent our history as Americans but I sadly know better

Depends on where they are speaking. Freedom of speech does not protect you from social or financial consequences of your speech, freedom of speech only protects you while speaking or expressing in public spaces, if the nazi and the freeman are speaking in either of their homes or in either of their businesses or using either of their personal property to do that speaking be it cell phones or web servers freedom of speech does not allow you to continue speaking in those places should the person who owns the place or thing your speech is in decide they no longer want any contact with you.
Freedom of speech also doesn’t allow you to directly attempt to harm someone through speech nor make creditable threats through speech.
It’s not just “can an asshole be an asshole freely” it’s a complex philosophical and legal topic.

That’s a logical fallacy my friend, boiling things down to a black a white, either this or that nothing else. Disingenuous argument tactic.

"Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them" - Karl Popper
This is a quote describing what is refereed to as the paradox of tolerance, many philosophers throughout time have spoken about it, popper is just one of the more well known.

there doesnt seem like much sense of scale here, how big is it? i remember all the posts about how the rovers are a lot bigger than they look, is this secretly the size of a schoolbus?

military can shoot people trespassing on military property, area 51 is a military site. The capitol building is public property that people are allowed to enter legally normally, this is the legal equivalent of going in the staff door of a local post office and trashing it, not something the military is allowed to respond to, that's the job of the police.

the problem with this is that i could be bleeding from a severed hand and still wonder to myself "is it really essential travel to go to the hospital?"

this generation of consoles, with the ps5 coming out with some tech that isnt in the consumer market yet, is the first generation of consoles for that to be true for multiple generations of consoles, the xbox 1 and ps4 were both really weak, the ps4 pro basically all the same parts as the ps4 with a tiny bit of additions making it 5 years out of date on its release day.
If you are comparing them to PC's where you are paying for a brand name that put the computer together then yea, you are wasting less of your money with a console than the overcharge you are getting with the PC equivalent of a set of beats headphones. For basically every generation of console since like 2005 a pc built out of parts you bought will be cheaper than an equivalent console. Most people just dont know how to, and in the past didnt have the tools to know how to, build a pc.

there is a bit of a difference, generally in a prebuilt pc or a laptop you’ll have have control over the the parts on some level, allowing you to more effectively get something that fits your needs.
Functionally tho both are generally overpaying for a given strength of the computer behind whatever OS you are running be it a console or a pc and in both cases you are beholden to the stock levels of the machine as a whole, this last console release with ps5 showcasing that very well. At least with a laptop the extra money you are paying over buying desktop parts gets you some grade A mobility.

for 99% of people, any information of any kind garnered from them by whatever means is totally worthless, yet personal data is one of the most well traded information bundles in the corporate world.
Everyone is worth microchipping but only when everyone else is also getting microchipped, basically no one is worth any sort of effort by any group individually.

rpgs at walmart are you crazy? youd have to be literally fucking insane to think its anywhere near an ok thing to have rpgs for sale in walmart wtf?!?!?!?
the markup they'd put on that product would be insane you need to start a new specialized store for explosive projectile weapons if you want it to be reasonable for people to buy it near market price.

what is obvious is relative, if you look around you right now there is no indication that the earth isn't flat for most people especially if you haven't ever been told that the earth is round, for generations it was obvious that earth was the center of the universe, for ages it was obvious that the entire world was all connected by land save for a couple small islands. It's obvious that there's no other land we've gone out that way for ages before and there's just sea forever. We literally carved into stone "non terra plus ultra" to signify that there was no land west of the straights of Hercules.

there are quite a few cars in the cars universe that's design still fulfills its purpose without humans, the main character being a good example, race cars are there for entertaining viewers, the purpose isnt to get the driver from one place to another. Cargo vehicles similarly arent there to transport humans from place to place rather than transporting things from place to place and as such still retain their designed purpose in the cars universe.

a random thing ill ask, is it a contradiction to call someone low risk while also in the same sentence admitting they've gone to large events where no one wore a mask?

Just as a bit of interesting information about this
The main theory as to how this came about as a term is that they would refer to not having points as something along the lines of “they have only their love for the game” or “they are now only still playing because they love the game”
Are masks still a political issue at this point? Asking for a friend 5 comments

masks sorta protect you, generally its recommended that if you, an uninfected person, 100% have to be around known infected people that you wear a mask because it does lower your chance of being infected by about 65%
https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(20)31142-9/fulltext
theres a paper detailing that but super quick summary is that wearing a mask protects the mask wearer by about 65%
