rookie mistake for smart people everywhere is to obsess over truth at the expense of memetic fitness

Idé til avistegning:

I midten en stor bøtte fylt til randen av brun gugge

Rundt står en rekke folk: Jenny, Vebjørn, Hanne NH, osv. De holder ut hver sin mobil, hvorfra de klemmer ut en dråpe brun gugge som faller ned mot bøtta.

Over, én felles snakkeboble: "Hvordan våger du anklage meg for å få det til å renne over!?! Dette er kanselleringskultur!"

Another stated that aliens wanted people to trade cryptocurrency "as an on-ramp to familiarize ourselves with the quantum financial system until we can evolve into 5D and trade assets with our consciousness".

Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they should, they didn't stop to think if they could.

Greenwashing, Vestre furniture company, annoyed 

This shit annoys me to all hell!

Oh, look at us, we're so environmentally friendly, with our wooden building with recycled, low-carbon materials and solar panels out here in the middle of the forest*!

Yeah, it's in the middle of nowhere! Being surrounded by green things does not make you green!

When your building is in the middle of nowhere, what does that mean? It means that you cut clearings in nature. It means all of the materials needs to be trucked there. It means all of the workers needs to drive there every day! Will they be bused, or drive in individual cars? Well, this article veritably shaking with green buzz words doesn't mention this at all – except saying they'll use EVs for transportation (I'm guessing of materials, not workers), but transportation is still a huge problem

This whole thing stinks of #greenwashing, and World Architecture joyously helps them spread their green propaganda.

According to the article even #BREEAM, will help them, by giving them their highest environmental rating! What a joke.

People say “you’re autistic? Does that mean you take everything literally?”

And I’m like “nah, that’s kleptomaniacs”

dall-e is an impressive technological marvel, but DID YOU KNOW: for a nominal fee, you can hire unfathomably talented artists living in poverty to render any and all of your invasive thoughts NO QUESTIONS ASKED

someone just told me my "communist empire is falling to pieces" and i cannot emphasize enough that when you try to insult someone, it is crucial to not accidentally make them sound way cooler or more powerful than they actually are

the next time you say "thumbs down", think of your friends who are thumb war veterans

some people are under the impression that i made this up to satirize coindesk and no, i gave up hope long ago that i could come up with anything funnier than the crypto industry

For de som lurer på hva som skjer i kryptomarkedet nå: Prisene stuper, og det som ligger bak er en farseaktig gjentagelse av finanskrisen i 2008. Store aktører som er eksponert ovenfor hverandre på risikable måter ingen har oversikt over.

Den ene etter den andre går fra "alt er bra med oss!" til "sorry, du kan ikke hente ut myntene dine lenger" over natta. Mange tvinges til å selge det de har, noe som driver prisene videre nedover, og så videre.

> On Thursday, NHTSA said it had discovered in 16 separate instances when this occurred that Autopilot “aborted vehicle control less than one second prior to the first impact,” suggesting the driver was not prepared to assume full control over the vehicle.

> CEO Elon Musk has often claimed that accidents cannot be the fault of the company, as data it extracted invariably showed Autopilot was not active in the moment of the collision.

Sigh. 🤦‍♀️
