It’s better than real – it’s a real imitation.

Wednesday, 08 February 2023

Unconfirmed reports of heartless idiots on social media saying we shouldn’t help Türkiye with earthquake relief if they don’t let us into NATO. Do these idiots know what being a NATO member means? It means helping countries like Türkiye if they’re attacked. If we don’t help now with a humanitarian disaster, why should Türkiye trust us to help in a military alliance?

🇸🇪 Rolig felstavning i TextTV: ”Spindömd bror överklagar domen”[1]. Ska givetvis vara ”spiondömd” men tanken på att en stackare döms till evig spinning är ju kittlande.

Internet nerds who make fun of people anthropomorphizing their pets unironically anthropomorphizing large scale learning systems.

News of a massive earthquake in Türkiye. I hope Sweden sends what help it can to assist in search and rescue.

Update we are prepared to assist if requested.

Update 2 it looks really really bad, with aftershocks registering above 7 on the Richter scale. I have my own beef with the continued use of Richter scale values in media but that’s for another time.

🐦Twitter finally turning off free API access will kill my preferred client, Oysttyer, and help wean me off the hellsite. I just wish there was as good a terminal client for fedi…

Visiting Goodreads first time in a long time… get a message saying “Free Cryptocurrency Novel in Exchange for an Honest Review”. No fucking thanks. I really should look into non-sucky booktracking apps/sites.

An alternative end to WW2 in Japan

The podcast “We have ways of making you talk” had Phillips O’Brian as a guest in episode 163 (Overcast link) and he mentioned something I’ve never heard of before.

Roosevelt’s chief of staff, Adm. William Leahy, was against using the atomic bomb on Japan. It would be akin to using poison gas, as as far as anyone knew the radioactivity might have made the land uninhabitable.

He was also against an invasion of the home islands. Instead, Japan would be isolated, preventing it from waging war.

Of course no food or supplies would reach Japan, and considering the already straightened circumstances there at war’s end, it’s possible that millions of people would die from starvation or disease.

Manchuria would have probably fallen to the Soviets just as it did in real life, and bombing raids would probably have continued, along with shore bombardment and aerial strikes from ships close by. These would cause additional deaths (the firebombing of Tokyo in 1945 led to a death toll of 100,000 with a million homeless).

Man, if Russia has managed to derail Sweden’s NATO membership by helping Rasmus Paludan… what a masterful application of Schwerpunkt. Of course this joke of a government has helped. It would be interesting to try to find out who in SD is in Russia’s payroll as well.

What’s the best way to publicly declare you will not host or endorse ML-generated content? A banner? A specific text?

M om Paludan i påsk: Haha fuck yeah!!! Yes!!

M om Paludan nu: Well this fucking sucks. What the fuck.
