Jeff Bezos Allegedly Loves Bathing in the Piss of his Employees

quote [ “BREAKING: More Perfect Union has obtained emails showing that Amazon privately pressured USPS to install an illegal ballot dropbox during the union election in Bessemer, AL.

The emails directly contradict public statements by USPS about the box's origins.

There's more.” ]

Surely the reason he wants them pissing in bottles is for his own kinks, no?

They're counting the votes now. I don't have high hopes given how dirty amazon was being. Illegal post office boxes, massive billboards with misinformation, manipulating the timing of traffic lights to mess with canvassing efforts, etc...

I made $22 Virtual Reality Gloves.

quote [ This is the journey of how I decided to make my own VR Haptic Gloves and the first 3 prototypes on the way to making VR Haptics affordable for everyone. ]

The dude that made the VR gloves that have been all over TikTok and youtube has responded to the recent popularity with the intent to start a diy series to show people how to make the gloves and teach the basics behind them. Pretty ingenious techinques.

There's also a Humble Spring Into VR Bundle - kinda disappointing selection, but if you're just getting into VR, they're a pretty good start for a library.

Bill Gates is the biggest private owner of farmland in the United States. Why?

quote [ In total, Gates owns approximately 242,000 acres of farmland with assets totaling more than $690m. To put that into perspective, that’s nearly the size of Hong Kong and twice the acreage of the Lower Brule Sioux Tribe, where I’m an enrolled member. A white man owns more farmland than my entire Native nation! ]

Of course, mandatory Bill Gates Citations Needed eps in the extended.

Why It's Morally Okay To Pirate All Of Sony's Games (The Jimquisition)

quote [ Sony has basically given incentive for us to pirate every PlayStation game under the sun. With their decision to axe the storefronts of three systems and consign thousands of digital games to oblivion, the company has fully telegraphed its regard for entertainment software.

Whether it's PSP, PS Vita, or PS3, you might as well just download everything. At least one Sony executive would agree with you - the one so blinkered he can't even understand why you'd PLAY old games, let alone buy them.

It is morally okay to pirate all the PlayStation games you like. Sony basically loves it. ]

Sony not even giving devs a heads up they were shutting down the store they were developing for would blow my mind if I hadn't spent the last couple years hearing about VR devs jumping through hoops trying to sell on the Oculus Quest.

Risks to Australia of a 3°C warmer world: Scientists release landmark climate change report

quote [ It highlights that even if the world’s governments meet their current Paris pledges on time, Earth is likely to reach average global surface temperatures of 3oC above the pre-industrial period during this century, with catastrophic consequences. ]

The sixth assessment report (AR6) of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is due out sometime next year but we're seeing a sign of things to come as many of the scientists involved are releasing their Country's individual reports.

We've known for years that the Paris Agreement was a paper tiger, and even the 2 degree line in the sand is genocide for a significant chunk of coastal societies.

Cool, I was hoping to build my own version of the Yaw, but that doesn't seem likely anytime soon.

Western Media Defends US-Backed Bolivian Coup Leader After Arrest

quote [ Brutal dictators supported by Washington have no reason to doubt that establishment journalists and big NGOs will try very hard to keep them out of jail. ]

For those of you haven't been keeping up with my numerous posts on the Bolivia situation. A few years ago the US again began heavily supporting right wing factions in Bolivia leading up to one of our front organizations (the OAS) to call foul in an ongoing election. Evo Morales was forced to flee the country after a flare up of violence against his socialist party's members. This lead to a literal Neo-Nazi by the name of Luis Fernando Camacho storming the presidential palace.

With a Bible in one hand and a national flag in the other, Camacho bowed his head in prayer above the presidential seal, fulfilling his vow to purge his country’s Native heritage from government and “return God to the burned palace.”

Senator Jeanine Áñez soon enters from stage right carrying a comically huge bible and declares herself president. All the while the US media and the majority of our politicians are refusing to call this a coup. She then gives the military carte blanche and they begin going door to door attacking Bolivian natives and suspected Morales supporters kicking off a year or so of violence against the indigenous people.

Multiple studies have found the OAS's claims to be completely fabricated, Áñez is eventually forced to hold an election after numerous delaying, Morale's party candidate wins handily, and the new president arrests Áñez and the other right wing murderers. Cue US news calling out the new socialist president for their violent ways. And scene.
