I don't mean the average person. If a person working full time has a dependent, and can't support them with reasonable accommodations, our society has failed them. For a single parent with a child this would mean two bedrooms

Can Maury moderate it? Bring in some family members before they reveal the test results, maybe some videos played to tell us a bit more about them

Even the single burner ones? Some of the higher wattage ones seem like they really should cook pretty quickly

You shouldn't need a housemate to be able to afford to live somewhere

There are also lots of home remedies that doctors actually recommend. I had a doctor teach me a technique for using a shower a bit like a netty pot, to keep my sinuses clean, and it's great. I've shared it with a few people when it made sense. Sorting out the useful home remedies from the useless or harmful pseudoscience is harder than it should be, though.

My understanding was closer to "signal of dire distress", in that it's a statement more than a request.

But the insurrection was definitely direly distressing, so it works

the very foundation of an abortion ban is an assumption that a woman’s body does not belong to her. Abusive men agree.

I'm at a loss for a phrase that expresses the opposite of "unlikely allies" correctly. That I'm surprised, not that they're working together, but that it took them so long to do openly

I see what you're saying. As an isolated event it's pretty meh. Maybe it sucks for the two people who used it.

In a sense, Musk was betting that Twitter's API was undermonitized, and by raising the price, he'd make more money than he'd lose in people leaving the platform. He bet Twitter's relevance against some money. Yeah, not a lot of people used it on Switch, but every rejection of his bet, that Twitter isn't worth the price, hurts Musk's bottom line. And it's kinda on him; Nintendo isn't defying him, he was just wrong.

A couple of speed tests will give you most accurate results if you really need them. tends to estimate my speeds a bit higher than ookla or Google's tests, but they're all clustered within about 5Mbps.

One outlier in either direction would also be an interesting result, but I have yet to observe that.

If the gym won't let you cancel your membership, this is certainly a way of handling it.

Because nobody buys them? I have a reasonably nice 1080p60 dumb TV, and when I decide I want to upgrade, I'll be looking at 4k (or maybe 8k) signage displays. Being part of an app ecosystem at this point is a design defect on a TV, and the superior product costs more, so fewer people buy it.

I also suspect the usable life of a smart TV is a lot lower, to the point that paying twice as much for a signage TV may not equate to twice the price in the long run. Fewer parts outside the panel that can slow down or fail entirely

Someone else posted the link, but a few weeks ago she described the idea that Nazis targeted research and healthcare information on Trans patients as "a fever dream", despite the Nazi raids on Magnus Hirschfield's Institute are a well-documented part of their crimes.

She claimed she was describing something other than the screenshot she quoted after people repeatedly pointed out how wrong she was, but it's still a troubling escalation in her rhetoric.
