Pretty sure it's a typo, since it's a self contradicting statement

It gets a bad image, but is poison?

I don't get it though. The introduction and context outside the comic are insanely biased, but the comic itself, without context, seems fine? Granted I'm not American, so I might be missing something

I know about his racist rants, do you have some examples of affected comics? Too many unrelated results on Google

Here's the actual news release without the clickbait farm. https://www.media.mit.edu/projects/alterego/overview/

Press X to doubt, though. It's probably nowhere near as accurate or adaptable as MIT implies. University PR depts are infamous for blowing hot air.

Edit: It's from 2019. It's definitely hot air

I honestly thought they were actively trying to prevent hotlinking, every interface I've ever used keeps breaking on them

Claiming the schizophrenic US govt WANTS anything is dubious. Most of their attention is focused on fighting each other

Anyway why is me deleting a post such a big thing

Because it's bad etiquette. You're removing the replies of everybody who bothered to reply to you, as well as denying anybody else the chance to read the conversation. Especially if it's a question that might be of interest to other people.

I see you didn't read the post

You say it like mods are anything other than a bunch of random diverse people with little to no communications between those on different subs

What hyper push? I can't think of a time in history ever when somebody with two weeks of experience was in demand

[-] wahming@monyet.cc 23 points 4 days ago

A lot of them were lawyers.

I'm not seeing the downside here

I've been hearing for years that artificial gems (diamonds, rubies, moissanite, etc) cost a 'fraction' of the real thing. Is this true? If so, where can I as a consumer buy a handful of this stuff?

Note that I don't want jewellery-grade gems, I realise that would cost a lot simply due to rejects and labour to cut / polish. I just want stuff I can mess around with for hobbies and crafts.

Also, rice!

Edit: This issue seems to be happening only in certain views. I can confirm this is happening in cards, and not in slides
