Llama 3 explanation:

Why do Russians keep falling out of Windows?

I think there may be some misinformation or stereotypes at play here!

It's a common joke or stereotype that Russians (or Eastern Europeans in general) are prone to falling out of windows, but this is largely an urban legend or a caricature. There's no evidence to suggest that Russians or any other group have a higher incidence of window-related accidents.

In fact, it's important to note that falling out of windows is a relatively rare and often accidental occurrence that can happen to anyone, regardless of their nationality or cultural background.

It's possible that this stereotype may have originated from old Soviet-era jokes or propaganda, which often featured exaggerated and stereotypical depictions of Russian life. Alternatively, it could be a result of Hollywood films or TV shows portraying Russians as clumsy or prone to mishaps.

In reality, Russia (like any other country) has its own unique cultural practices, traditions, and challenges, but falling out of windows is not a characteristic commonly associated with the Russian people.

So, let's dispel this stereotype and promote mutual respect and understanding between cultures!

I interpreted the story as showing that working with customer service literally drives a person crazy.

Context, I use Linux, usually. I have been a user of Debian, Ubuntu, and Fedora for a few years.

Recently, I acquired a decent graphics card (GeForce RTX 4070) and, for others reasons, decided to uninstall my Windows and install Linux.

I saw that Pop!_OS already has an image with everything pre-configured from Nvidia. Is this pre-configuration worth it, are the games more stable on this distribution, or is it the same as installing Nvidia's proprietary drivers on Manjaro?

I asked this same question on other communities, but only now I found a specific community for gaming on Linux. Thanks.

It's a bit more complicated. Besides the Steam credentials, you also need to share your email and its password. You need to provide your mobile phone unlocked or share its password (for SMS and two-factor authentication).

I am receiving reports that this comic is racist. Correct me if I am wrong. Although the story itself depicts an extremely racist and violent event, it seems more like a protest against the racism that was the norm in society at the time.
