I mean, there’s also the cost of changing every single tool, every single piece of manufacturing equipment in every factory, every single measurement instrument in every school across the country

1. i hope this is a real thing, if its not then im sad.
2. that symbol goes on the right side armor piece not the left one so i guess secretly the lofi girl has been horizontally mirrored this whole time?

I mean if you won’t say it I will. These people deserve to feel the full brunt of the effects of this shit personally for the full duration of the pandemic. The only reason it’s good that some of them wont is that them not ever suffering from it means they aren’t spreading it.

that is legitimate extortion. And its targeting anyone who isnt black. One of the only people to stand up to them is a Cuban immigrant.

this kinda tactic is a motte and bailey. A motte and bailey is where you build a position that is easily defended and move to a position that is hard to defend. When you start losing the position that is hard to defend you retreat to the easy to defend position and claim that the two are the same so that defending one is equivalent to defending both.

People can do whatever they please no matter how abhorrent or morally corrupt the act is (bailey) and when questioned or opposed they retreat to a more defensible position and claim the person questioning or opposing is racist and hates black people or is a supremacist because they are speaking against someone hiding behind black lives matter (motte).

it doesn't matter what anyone intended it to mean. IT doesn't matter if the people starting the movement or even if the majority of the people in the movement have good intentions.
There are a not small amount of people who genuinely take black lives matter, people acting under said banner, to mean only black lives matter. People in positions of power treating it like only black lives matter. Prosecuting white people for having guns when a mob of people break down their gate and walked in their gated neighborhood screaming threats.
recently there's been a group of BLM activists extorting business owners in louisville demanding that businesses agree to have at minimum 23% black staff as well as them forcing them to agree to a minimum of 1.5% profits being given to black charities and a manditory bi-annual diversity and inclusion training. They are threatening to disrupt their business and get competing black businesses to put up tables and sell stuff outside of their shop on the street

one problem with the whole thing is that a lot of parents just want something they can throw at the kid and forget about it to keep the kid busy so they can do other stuff and not pay any attention. Those same parents are generally the ones complaining about the influence of X thing on their kids.

you assume kinda correct and kinda wrong and kinda both and kinda neither, their actual argument for it is generally something along the lines of "the big government makes the plane fly around in circles for a while before arriving at the airport and all of the windows are actually screen so they can make you think you are flying straightish."
often flat earthers will argue using these maps to messure distances with which they will "estimate" some real world object around them to disprove the round earth.
for example there is a flat earth youtuber who made multiple videos trying to disprove things including but not limited to
"planes are 2/3rds the size they say they are"
"planes go half the speed they say they do"
"the earth is half the size they tell us it is because planes"

for a while there, there was a big to do about tiktok where adults were posting comments on childrens tiktok posts encouraging them to be more sexual without outright saying it, telling them what to do, how to do it, that sorta thing.

thats an odd thing to process. out of context the words "throat singing" dont sound like something you could do romantically even tho the thing those words actually represent is one of the most beautiful forms of music ive ever heard.

i mean, at full power he can summon a literally god and multiple space dragons to fight at his command. They arent just holograms in a real fight, only in the "sport game" version. any of the god card holders would be on the higher-mid level of power in both of those universes.

the funny thing is that these arent just technically right, they are specifically right because if there were more of any of those objects it would become wrong.

if we consider steam to mean all of PC gaming then in almost every case pc gaming will be superior to the others listed. if we are talking about specifically just steam then it will be more equal footing.

wikipedia is considered untrustworthy for a couple reason.
1. its not a primary source, generally they like you to cite the actual research or actual news report etc.
2. anyone can edit it, regardless of how fast the moderation teams fix things. Wikipedia also doesnt have the same source standards as a college so a bad edit might stay if the person making it sources some fabrication or misinformation that agrees with them.
-
then there is the factor of: it puts unnecessary work on the person grading the paper as, since they cant just take wikipedia's word for it, they'll have to seach through the sources listed in the page you sourced to find the actual source for every wikipedia page sourced on every paper from every student. You want to hear your grade in a reasonable time after you turn it in?

if its in the same airspace it would just be tossing the shape into a computer and letting it do all the work. In the case of something like the endurance test it would be throwing it into a computer to plot it and then doing the normal "remembering to change channels and talk to the ATC" regarding airspace stuff.
