many efforts are to radical. Am I looking to get rid of capitalism. No. and if you think that type of thing is going to get a majority vote then your dreaming. But you know there are many many who want sensible regulation and for taxes to be collected. That is an achievable majority. I would love to get rid of first past the post and at least give that radicalism some voice so that can come out of the center.

the humans not being removed. Didn't you read the quote I pasted from the article that you replied to in this chain??? I mean I went to the the trouble of reading the article and copying and pasting the relevant part. Im not saying im a hero but...

Unlikely to happen but global warming and general environmental pollution is going on now. reduce, reuse, recycle

yeah because we are in a way better place with the 24 years of right we have had over the last 44 years instead of that aweful center we could have had. Al gore would have been a disaster if he won over bush junior and I don't even want to think of the horror of 4 more years carter would have brought.

its funny to as its a libertarian concept to simply social assitance. Well old school real libertarian not the fud the party with the name throws around now.

the human (really the military and government entity that employs them) who pulled the trigger not the computer that identified it. You see the human was just given a possible target but they did not actually need to fire.

I thought this had been going on for awhile now with computers identifying potential targets:

"The object recognition algorithms are used to identify potential targets. Humans then operate weapons systems. The US has reportedly used the software to identify enemy rockets, missiles, drones, and militia facilities."

100% agree here. There is so much fud about taxes but if you look at our history, especially since reagan. tax cuts result in a worse economy and raising them improves it a lot for the modest increases we had.

my feeling is rather than making housing projects the government contracts with companies to provide a room, facilities, and a cafeteria somewhat like a college dorm if you had a single and that would be the amount of UBI. Folks can then sign up at one of those if they need to but they could also just get a roomate in a standard rental situation or whatever. Or they might make some money and afford something better. Keep in mind UBI is not just extra money all around. Someone like me who is doing alright would be paying as much in tax as I get back. But if I lose my job, or become disabled, or just need to retire. It would be there immediately. Obsiously folks like musk and bezos would pay way more in taxes than they would ever get back but they would still get it.

yeah to some degree. you would not get it if incarcerated or such but is it really more control than the economic system already inflicts on us? I don't think so.

Im not waiting but im not sacrificing better in the hopes worse will lead to even better. Personally I far prefered biden, obama, over trump and I think your perspective would be a bit different if you experience bush, bush2, and reagan. ill take slightly better now over maybe somehow worse will get us to magically transform to way better.

local will effect local im afraid. I have been suffering under the worse of two evils half the time for the last several decades and very much prefere the lesser. Much would be different if deregulation had not happened along with lower taxes for wealthy along with gutting environmental regulations. etc

I have not seen an option so replying to a thread seems to be the only way that I can tell.

So when someone submitted a url at least at one point it would show up on the right and you could block it. So if someone posted a newsweek link you could block any link postings from like newsweek.com or maybe reddit.com or google.com. Lately though I have not been able to. It seemed to disapear at some point. I have not seen it as an option in a long time.

Reporting? (kbin.social)

So im pretty happy with users just being able to block and control things themselves but there has been posts from this somali call girls account where I feel like the extra step of reporting is warranted.

Question is in title. My searching is actually rather disturbing this morning as the results are fillled with industry fud and not what im looking for. What im really trying to find is a graph of oil produced historically because I recall we used to get something like a 50 barrel return but now we get single digits.

Edited - thanks for the info. kbin has an issue or at least my account does for some magazines where I can't see any replies when logged in so I can see it from a non logged in browser but can't reply so im replying in my post. EROI fits what I was looking for but if anyone finds a nice historical chart for it specifically with oil that would be great but with the EROI term I think I will be able to find it.

It bothers me as I feel she was fired do to her doing her job and sticking to her guns on what the correct thing to do given the data. FYI im on kbin and my notifications page is not working so I may not respond so well.

I tend to use maps from a search browser and it suddenly occurred to me that if the search engine I used defaulted to open street maps I would use it. Do any search engines default map searches to open street maps?

I sorta hate this request as it seems invasive but I was thinking about folks in the future and even myself now and I was thinking I would love to see what folks that I have subscribed to have blocked. I don't subscribe to a person unless Im really impressed by what they post or their discourse so its like a trusted list of users for me. That made me think I would love to see how they have blocked so I could look at it and see if it looks like an obvious person or place I would want to block.

Chicken grown from animal cells, not from slaughtered birds, can now be sold in the U.S. The Agriculture Department issued approvals Wednesday to California firms Upside Foods and Good Meat to sell the products, known as “lab-grown” or “cultivated” meat. The meat is grown in steel tanks, using cells that come from a living animal, a fertilized egg or a special bank of stored cells. The goal is to eliminate harm to animals and drastically reduce the environmental impacts of raising them. The meat will initially be sold only at upscale restaurants.
