I will not shut up about the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. I talk about them all the time and work them into every conversation I have. I built a shrine in my room for the yellow one who died because sadly no one noticed because she died around 9/11. Wanna see it?

quote:

Like other metal detectors, Evolv uses an array of magnetic sensors — 50 in total — to spot when a person is carrying metal. But these sensors are linked to machine-learning algorithms, a type of artificial intelligence, so that the company can not only spot a metallic object, but figure out its density or shape — such as the barrel of a gun.

[...]

When the scanner gets a hit, the system snaps a photo of the person and a red 3-D box hovers over where the suspicious object might be. The image also allows a nearby security guard to pull the person out of a crowd. This automated setup allows for a higher volume of foot traffic. The company says that its base model — the Evolv Express — can screen about 3,600 people per hour, which it says is 10 times faster than traditional metal detectors.

it'll somehow turn out that their model has found a way to be racist using only magnetic sensors, which is kinda impressive to be fair

having a database of people who have died so their families can search/get closure is a humane and reasonable thing to do. sending families corpse pictures is obviously not. hopefully what is happening is more the former (with proof provided if requested) than the latter. _allowing_ someone to see their loved one's body is a lot different from forcing them to

it seems like a lot of people think that, because they have friends with their names @gmail.com their email address must be their name @gmail.com. so as someone who got their name @gmail.com when gmail first started i get an insane amount of other people's poo poo. their official US student loans/uni rego poo poo. private work email chains. car rentals. medical records. multiple bank accounts. i email the support link if i can but most of the time the only way to get ahold of customer service especially for US poo poo where the laws are terrible is to log in as them, which i don't want to do. the funniest thing was some woman paypalled me like $100. i refunded, and told the woman hey, you got the wrong person. she replied 'omg thanks so much, what a dumbass giving me the wrong email lol' and then sent it to me again. which i refunded. and then she sent it again. and i refunded it again.

i am convinced that most of this is the 'not understanding how email addresses work' theory because i once got someone angrilly emailing me that i hacked their email address because that is their name, and I patiently replied, no friend, that is our name, and I registered first.

what really boils my nuts though is someone else has my name.com

its amazing how much of this has changed over my lifetime; in my earliest days as a computery lad you never put your real name anywhere near the internet and now people are routinely getting into slap fights over real name email addresses.

that's why double opt-in should be mandatory for anything. I don't give a gently caress about "friction", if you're gonna use emails for signing up to poo poo, make sure it's reaching the person who requested it. it's fuckin 2022 already.

someone got my vanity domain (without the extension) as their facebook short url name and we're both in a similar field with obviously similar names, so the odds were likely it'd happen and it's partly on me for not bothering to get it sooner. i don't even use facebook for anything but the principle of it annoys me

my name.com was registered a long time ago, but i have a common name so i'm not surprised one of us got to it before me

same, no way in hell was I getting lastname.com or lastna.me

I could probably get lastname.newfangledshittygtld but then every spamhaus blocklist etc will be like "lol recently registered + often-abused gTLD = everyone block this chode's emails"

It’s unreal too because you would think the curve of idiots who use emails that aren’t theirs would trend downward from the 90s but every John and Jane doe with the email gets used as a community email
