The Old Testament is the Hebrew Bible. The New Testament is the book where Jesus says, “f those first five books. Turn the other cheek.”

The competition between USA, Russia, and China is what gets people to tune in, really. With anyone of those countries not participating, viewership tanks, is my guess.

There’s also the whole thing about eschewing politics. Traditionally wars were paused for the Olympics, but I’m pretty sure that’s irrelevant today, especially when the US led a boycott of the Moscow Olympics in 1980 and then Russia boycotted the Los Angeles Olympics in 1984. It’s really about viewership.

Oh and the IOC is notoriously corrupt. If Russia pays to participate, the IOC will find every which way to let them, no matter how badly they cheat and genocide, same with the US and China.

Like I said, it’s about viewership, and the UK brings very little of that compared to the US, Russia, and China.

If you really cared to see the best, you’d know who Simone Biles is. Everyone tunes in to see their guys win.

The museum is permanently closed and its collections are only available to researchers by appointment only.

There is likely medical knowledge to gain from seeing and understanding Gage’s injury that can help other people with headwounds. Not from the binding of a book.

It has been understood by some for a long time, but not all. Especially when morbid curiosity is what brings visitors to your museum; without that morbid curiosity, you likely can’t make enough to stay open.

NAGPRA was renegotiated by a Native American Secretary of the Interior and, wouldn’t you know, having diverse voices helps people understand things differently, thus the massive change this year in the way museums display human remains. That’s a good thing. Be mad about the past so it doesn’t happen again, but also be glad that the display stops now.

As for using a cast, I’m sure they have one. But I don’t know if using one affects how medical research is conducted.

Oh yeah ETA: until the advent of the Internet, doctors coming to a place to examine collections of medical specimens was indeed the only way to do certain kinds of medical research.

My mom deserves to be yelled at but she’s incapable of introspection, so it’s just a waste of breath. 75% of the time, husband does not deserve it. :/

Otherwise let’s just say I’m texting this during my vape in the bathroom break! Slay it, queen!

Does the USPS, FedEx and UPS give a crap about weed shipments since Hemp sprayed with the same terpenes and looks the same as weed has been shipped legally for 9 years now?

Even if they did, won’t they get a lot of false positives because of a large amount of it being sprayed hemp buds that are legal as hemp? Also, I know a lot of dispensaries get their stock like vape pens and such delivered this way already. How does that all work?

There’s also an exception if they can’t read the delivery address; they have the authority to open the package to try to determine delivery address. So make sure your label can get a little wet and still be readable.

House Speaker Mike Johnson Responds to New Round of Scrutiny About Black Son (www.vanityfair.com)

Mike Johnson’s meteoric elevation from an under-the-radar congressman from Louisiana to second-in-line to the U.S. presidency sent journalists, Democrats and Republicans alike to uncover information about the personal and professional history of the most right-wing and least experienced House Speaker in history, who took the...

The only reason here, is BS. The kid is real, he’s a grown-ass adult with children of his own that he wants to keep away from the general public. This is conservative propaganda to make you think Johnson’s statements on racial injustice (which lean toward "my white kids get opportunities and have an easier life that my black kid doesn’t) are bunk. Which they’re not, just because the guy doesn’t want to do photo ops and give press releases doesn’t mean he’s fake. Johnson was first elected to Congress less than 10 years ago. His son made a decision not to be a pawn for his adopted father’s political career to avoid the public, not his father; and the public are generally terrible, which makes it an appropriate and rational decision.

I can’t speak to what happened during his upbringing, but if the man I saw as my father, who took me in as a teenager, decided to enter into politics, conservative politics no less, I’d tell him to visit for Christmas but leave me out of the politics. I’d want to go to the grocery and raise my family without being harassed by reporters and crazy random idiots, especially if he was a minor local politician in the community where I lived, but even moreso if national office were ever a possibility. The best way to achieve that would be to not let the general public even know about him, but he can still be in the family text chat and bring the grandkids by to see the rest of the family in person and in private.

The guy just wants Internet detectives like you to leave him and his family alone. Doing a good job of that doesn’t mean anything should smell off.

Word on the street is that American English is actually closer to the English spoken by the British when they first landed and colonized the Americas. After the war they went back to their lil island and forgot how to pronounce their Rs.

The Renaissance is not “some homogeneous past”, it’s a pretty specific time period: the 15th and 16th centuries.

How should I handle an ex friend who feels like he needs to bully me to raise his own self esteem? (We're adults)

I went to college with this guy 10 years ago and I considered him a friend up until this year. Something changed in him, and he constantly needs to put me down and I don’t know how to handle it....

That’s not irony, it’s karma? Consequences? Definitely not irony, though.

@Countess425@lemmy.world avatar

Maybe you just don’t know the definition of “irony”. People use it improperly all the time. I don’t think anything in that song by Alanis Morissette is actually ironic.

Personally, I don’t think there’s ever an excuse for cheating; academically it really only harms the cheater. People in college offered me a lot of money to do their work for them. I never accepted, but I also never tattled on them. Grades honestly, really, don’t matter in the long run.

There was an episode of TNG where a “passenger” got onto ship’s comms and was contacting Picard on the bridge. When Picard told the guy that the comms were reserved for ship’s business, the guy asked why they weren’t restricted, if that was the case. Picard said that was unnecessary as people in Star Fleet generally just…behave themselves.

I call TNG “Adult Contemporary Futurism”

Countess425 ,
@Countess425@lemmy.world avatar

This drives my husband insane. He can’t figure out why anyone bothers to walk anywhere. Why do they still use bathrooms when you can just transport the pee from your bladder into the replicator recombinator or whatever?! I assume the transporters must use an amount of energy that makes it inefficient to use for every little thing.

Countess425 ,
@Countess425@lemmy.world avatar

No, it’s TNG because of all the purple sparkly stuff, big hair, and jazz music. It’s very representative of late 80s early 90s adult contemporary aesthetic, which makes sense because that’s when it’s from. TOS is some other kind of retro fruturism.

My cat has to sniff the can of cat food after I dump it out in her bowl so she can decide if it’s worth the 4 steps it’ll take to get to the bowl. She’s a cat, she can smell the food in her bowl from less than a foot away. But if she doesn’t get to sniff the can, it might as well be poison for all she knows.

I spend more time blocking furries on BlueSky than seeing any content of value.

@Countess425@lemmy.world avatar

It’s not closed to the general public, any member of the general public can join as long as you get an invite. I’m not sure how to get invites as I don’t interact with BlueSky much, but I was invited by my brother and he’s nothing special on the Internet.

My friend’s husband does this; he runs a plex server for their family, parents/in-laws, and a brother I think. As the nephew got older he started sending in his requests, too. He also set up an email address just for movie requests and wrote a script to crawl the email inbox and automatically download the top search result. It ended up requiring very little input on his end.

Excuse me sir or ma’am, you are in the childfree community about being childfree. If you would like to participate in parenting conversations or discuss how great kids are, I’m sure there are places dedicated to that, but this is not it.

He’s trying to cause an immigration crisis; people in Africa can’t afford food so they will try to immigrate to Europe, either legally or not, and strain the resources and increase cultural divides. It was the whole reason Putin started fucking with the grain supply as soon as he could. He was hoping the immigration crisis and energy crisis would overlap and make each other worse, but The Netherlands recently dissolved their government over the immigration crisis, so now is good too.

Russia’s mined the fuck out of the whole east and south of the country. Not just land mines, but little petal mines and crap all over the place. UXO/mine disposal is already going to take decades. Western Europe still explodes a handful of people with UXO leftover from WW1 and 2, but it was still worth supporting them with weapons to win those wars.

Ukraine likely intends to crack open the cluster bombs and use the 80 or so individual munitions inside for dropping from drones. These weapons are basically an 80-for-1 deal the US has no use for, and the west can’t produce mutions fast enough to give or sell to Ukraine.

Why does smoked salmon look 'raw'? And why does it taste so different from a cooked fillet?

I don’t tend to eat much fish, but in the supermarket earlier I saw some smoked salmon which didn’t need cooking, and some salmon fillets which did. They looked the same really - both ‘raw’. I decided to buy some of the fillet. It was nice, but a very different flavour from when I’ve tried smoked salmon in the past....

I they’re referring to cold smoking. It’s just smoking at a temp of like 80 degrees for like 18 hours or something. It’s how you make lox.
