‘I cannot afford to live’: Gen Z is full of financial angst despite inheriting a golden job market
  • Well they inherited a market that was golden for the Boomers and GenX

    Sadly, those two groups, instead of continuing to fight for workers rights like generations before them, grandfathered their rights into contracts in exchange for sacrificing our rights.

  • Could the Federation defeat Star Wars' Empire in an all-out war?
  • As far as I understand it though, their hyperspace is the same as ST's subspace network used by the Borg. It's very fast, but it only works on existing lanes. So while theoretically a SW ship is faster, it's only if they're using a known route. Which only exist in their galaxy.

    Unlike ST though, SW ships can't map out hyperspace paths with sensors but have to do so manually via manned ship.

  • Washington's Lottery AI site turned user photo into porn
  • It's a core problem with image generator LLMs. For some fucking reason they seem to have fed them the content from sites that had a lot of porn. Guessing Imgur and Deviantart.

    Literally the first time I tried to use MS's image generator, was out with some friends trying a new fried chicken place and we were discussing fake tinder profiles.

    So I thought to try it and make a fake image of "woman senuously eating fried chicken".
    Content warning, blah blah blah.

    Try "Man sensuously eating fried chicken". Works fine.

    We were all mystified by that. I went back a few days later to play around. Tried seeing what it didn't like. Tried generating "woman relaxing at park".
    Again, content warning. Switch to a man, no problem. Eventually got it to generate with "woman enjoying sunset in a park." Got a very dark image, because it generated a completely nude woman T-posing in the dark.

    So, with that in hand I went back and started specifying "fully clothed" for a prompt involving the word "woman". All of a sudden all of the prompts worked. They fed the bot so much porn that it defaulted women to being nude.

  • Oh, the Eclipse. Yeah, the ship that the rebels stole and then blew up?

    Federation captains deal with Q, some on a regular basis. Palpatine can somehow he came back against a being that is everything he wishes he was.

  • Star Trek has vastly better sensors, shielding, weapons and science.

    Sensors: they can detect the atmosphere and cargo inside a ship as well as how many individuals are in it. SW can't detect when an entire ship has docked to the hull.

    Science: and then they can beam a person out of it. They can screw with any technology while transporting too.

    Shielding: ISDs and Death Star can't keep fighter and the millennium falcon from running around inside their shield envelope. Federation shields give them the option to block crafting from passing.

    Weapons: They made bombs that break space itself, and then apparently almost everyone agreed to ban them because its a stupidly dangerous idea.

    Science 3: Genesis Device. Oh great you can destroy a planet. The Federation can create an entire solar system with a bomb.

    Science 4: Federation developed a matter phasing cloak. Romulans made personal cloaks.

    The only advantage the Empire has is numbers of ISDs. Even then, if the empire makes the wrong move they'll piss off the Dominion or the Borg, and the empire literally can't touch the borg.

  • Google now blocks spoofed emails for better phishing protection
  • It was a work issue about a decade ago. Client wanted certain emails from automation to be masked as coming from him.

    Most email boxes, including Gmail, didn't have an issue. Outlook(the one that shipped with Office) laughed at it and displayed the original sender in giant bold letters.

  • How do we actually get out of this climate disaster?
  • Adapt to it as best we can. Minimize your use of fossil fuels, particularly Natural Gas(Methane). Get some books on farming to understand a worst case need to live off grid.

    We're past the point that we can go back. The glaciers on Antarctica and Greenland are in a self-sustaning melt cycle at this point.

  • Canadian innovation.
  • Also, "usually trouble".

    Have rarely seen anyone have trouble crossing there. Unless it's Tesla, BMW or Audi SUV, then just let them go pass, because they can't drive anyways.

  • 'Hamas mouthpiece': Netanyahu lauds new law allowing him to shut Al-Jazeera in Israel
  • Oh yeah, its his party, he's just the face.
    It's the offshoot of the same party that led Albert Einstein to distance himself from the concept of Israel back in the late 1940s.

    Also, allegedly that most of the reason Hamas got to execute their October 7th plot in the first place was that Bibi had all of those soldiers off intimidating the judges that were overseeing his multiple criminal trials
