Ontario mom pulls Jewish daughter out of high school after antisemitic 'culture' event
  • Oh wow newsite comments are always fun.

    Jewish voters vote for leftists by a vast margin. They must switch their vote to Trump and Conservatives. Otherwise they are doomed.

    Trump for Prime Minister!

  • It's not. The 5-10 figure is originally from an extremely unscientific study from the 1940s meant to spawn distrust of "German" cockroaches. While it absolutely happens the real numbers are much lower. More frequently they enter the anus.

  • ICQ will stop working from June 26
  • Most people in my circle moved to AIM with some on MSN and one or two weirdos on Yahoo. The ability to have a fun username maybe contributed. Did ICQ let you set an away status with melodramatic lyrics? I remember that being an important feature in the others.

  • I wish that every website that works only in Chrome also has to be compatible with Firefox.
  • Granted. Mozilla announces they're retiring Gecko and moving Firefox to use Chromium under the hood, ensuring maximum web compatibility!

  • The HN thread has comments by "founders" admitting it's a transreflective LCD. They claim it's super-duper customized but it's still an LCD.

    I also found a a reddit thread where it was being advertized as e-ink and a company rep came in and admitted it as an LCD and that the article came from a friend of an employee, but I'm not finding the thread again now from a quick search.

  • It's not actually eink (aka electronic paper). It's an LCD screen with a filter to help glare. Clearly deceptive marketing and worse, they have "friends of employees" advertising it as eink.

  • What's the reason for high refresh rates?

    I was reading an article on the new LG display with a refresh rate of 7680Hz and it says:

    > While a typical refresh rate for a monitor might be 60Hz-240Hz, an outdoor display designed to be viewed from a distance needs to be much higher

    The idea that there's an intrinsic link between refresh rate and viewing distance is new to me and feels unintuitive. I can understand the need for high brighteness for far view distance. I also could understand refresh rate mattering for a non-persistent (CRT) display. But for an Led display surely you can see it far away even if it refreshes once a second?

    Refresh rate normally needs to be high enough to avoid pixels "jumping" between refreshes on high resolution displays, so wouldn't higher view distances allow you to decrease the refresh rate?

    Is the article just spouting bullshit? Or is there an actual link between refresh rate and view distance?

    SLPT: in a rush after a snowstorm? Skip brushing your car off by simply driving fast! The air will brush your car off for you.

    This can also save you shoveling/plowing your driveway, simply drive over the accumulated snow at high speed. Make sure to avoid getting stuck however.

    Who is a fictional character you most identified with?

    From TV, movie, book, fanfic, audio drama, cuneiform tablet, or whatever.

    SLPT: Striking out on tinder? Use AI to make you look attractive and give you the profile of someone with an actual personality.

    Before your first date go to an MMA dojo and insult anyone walking out so you have a cover for why you aren't like your profile.
