    Yea, hence my low confidence in my opinion. He was simultaneously the least popular president since they started polling the subject and also got the second most votes ever cast for a candidate.

    Trump can be beaten without Twitter

    the societal harms of him being given that account far far far outweigh whatever punditry outlook benefit someone could forecast

    I feel like we have this debate every week. Trump on Twitter is far worse than Trump off Twitter.

    I think we may need a new thread for unhinged replies to Elon

    so many people legitimately think he’s the real world Harry Potter or something

    He was never actually going to go through with this. He was always going to back out at the last minute. He just wanted his weird stans and right wingers to make him feel special for a couple weeks.

    The pretense for him backing out is every bit as stupid as his Las Vegas Tesla Tunnel Fire Trap.

    He is the definition of a fuck boy and the world would be far better off with his assets being liquidated and his body being sent on a rocket ship to the sun

    It kind of seems like he spends his entire life on Twitter. Damaging Twitter would come close to basically being self-harm for this fuckface.

    give you one guess

    New video of a violent car crash at the Greater Columbus Convention Center last week shows that it's miraculous that no one was seriously injured or killed as the vehicle ran a red light at what authorities say was about 70 mph, as pedestrians, cars and buses traversed High Street nearby around lunchtime on a business day.

    The new footage also shows that had the car not rammed into a steel support column inside the Convention Center after plowing through a glass wall, it may have continued through the interior of the facility, which was hosting several events at the time including a girls junior volleyball championship.

    Police reports do not state whether "Autopilot," a Tesla self-driving feature, played any role in the crash — or even if they asked the driver if it was engaged at the time. The driver told police the car lost its ability to brake while he was traveling on Route 315 and would not stop after he exited Downtown onto Vine Street.

    “Self-driving” cars being developed by Silicon Valley people who have no qualms about straight up lying when it comes time to the capabilities of their products was always going to be a blast. A literal blast.

    It's going to get really, really bad. Sportsbooks' algorithms are fantastic and are targeting the worst addicts and milking them for everything they're worth

    The UK has a lot of regulatory mechanisms in place. We should have taken note.

    But federal legislation is impossible to pass when 46% of the country wants a governing party that does not believe in governance.

    Even those just seem like lip service. Lots of suicides have had to occur for parliament to notice that allowing betting companies to buy stadium naming rights and sponsor soccer teams might be problematic. As long as a betting company mentions Begambleaware.co.uk in an ad, they can say basically whatever they want in it.
