Wow, cheers and sorry for the inconvenience haha. Lightning speed fix from teh devs as always though ❤️
What a classic ❤️
Yeah these CEOs have a lot of influence over politics and legislation which enables unregulated behaviour. An example from today.
Wow, you are awesome. That was fast and the vote arrows are much better, thank you! Understand about notifications, need more users before many replies come in so not much needed yet anyway IMO. The new theme is spot on though, cheers!!
Ho-Ly-Shit. Yeah that isn't something you double down on. You express regret that you didn't do it. I mean, has the dude never heard of Nina Simone? She'd single handedly meet both his exclusions and there is no argument against Nina being somewhere up top of his shitty list.
Got! (the original on plastic, what a classic ❤️)
Haha there's the market pressure we predicted in our last chat. But yeah, making changes is hardly rolling back. Here's betting they do a minor tweak and push ahead, but who knows.
The CEO selling shares I wasn't aware of and HAS to be insider trading. Shonky behaviour from a shonky company.
Good. Get them all in one place.

It's usually better when uncoordinated, then they can be thoroughly dismissed 😂
Yes maybe I should have said "the right" rather than Trump (Trump IS the right currently so I shortcutted). A con man? Yes. But perhaps with aligned goals, politically at least. The trouble (saving grace) with Murdoch et al. is that they are very loosely bound by media standards. The danger with Musk owning Twitter and removing the (again, already loose) controls it has, is that it becomes an unmitigated platform to centralise the extreme side of the right. While I agree that the influence is much smaller than national media, the risk of focusing the more extreme elements presents a more dangerous prospect (less about elections and more about active dissidents etc.)
That's accurate! I remember with the Tesla push, Musk was all "I need to do something to influence the rate of adoption of non-emitting vehicles". While that may well have been marketing, he seemed to back it up with the Space X Mars ambitions. It seemed like a refreshing change from the usual venture capitalists.
Then... what? This? I'm partly convinced the Twitter episode is to aid the push towards Trump, but even if not, or just hubris, the change is marked and the descent into the heart of darkness so rapid and public it's definitely a first.
At least Trump was never a serious figure (probably always like this) and Putin had the tools to control, if not disguise it. Zuck was just a misadventure (despite the hilarity of the court footage gifs 😂). But the growing, raving lunacy of Elon is something to behold. That it has political influence is scary af.
It seems counter intuitive that abortion bans result in lower birth rates but actually makes perfect sense. If you can't control unwanted pregnancies then why risk it at all?
China is facing the a similar issue following their one child policy. Lots of "little kings" (single children raised under the one child policy) also want to have their own little kings, so despite the policy ending, young couples don't want more than one child anyway, even with financial incentives and abortion restrictions, leading to a rapidly declining birth rate.
I just feel bad for the unfortunate teenages who can't control their destiny by choosing when to have children, and the poor woman who had the thirteen day miscarriage 😭
heh yep it's a one trick pony alright but good to mix into a set where the repetition is avoided / worked around. There's a bunch of fun remixes in various genres too that are more varied.
