Hi there, would you like to try some spicy products?
I'm kinda confused that anything other than the moment magnitude scale is still being referenced by news outlets in 2023, but to actually read "Richter scale" is a certified mindfuck.

/Edit: lol nevermind, it's 2024

Happy new year, y'all :smith:

Our December was the 15th consecutive December with "unusually high average temperature" as per our federal department of metereology or whatever, and is among the top-eight warmest recorded Decembers since the beginning of records since 1881.
The mean temperature was 3.9C/7F above normal


Southern Germany just gettin' a lil crispy, nbd

Jesus Christ, I read that "after collision with coast guard aircraft" as in-flight accident/crash with loss of all souls.

Plane was evacuated, only minor injuries, coast guard crew all unaccounted for unfortunately :smith:

Here's hoping they find the coast guard aircraft and it's crew (hopefully alive)

this NHK link has video of the incident https://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/en/news/20240102_302/

If they haven't found them by now, I strongly doubt they survived, the CG aircraft was completely obliterated by the airliner on the runway from what it looks like

Swifties are unironically better at finding people than actual law enforcement. Mostly because they’re actually interested/motivated to do so :v:

I'm sure the Swifties are pretty fanatical, but the Barbs are currently on a mass-doxxing campaign because another rapper said something mean about Nicky Minaj in a track.

Now, if we could get Trump to shittalk BTS, Blackpink, and Twice, I'd wager the Blinks, Once and whatever BTS fans call themselves would just turn the 2024 election into a foregone conclusion.

Isn't it also arguably not slacktivism if it is effective or reaches an intended outcome or goal?

Like, I could roughly see the term applied to folks sitting on their rear end flooding right wing hashtags, but ultimately, those hashtags end up defunct re: their original purpose and the original intention behind them is defeated, so the original connotation of the term slacktivism doesn't really apply.
Different example, Kpop fans from around the world flooded some Trump rally's registration several years back, causing him to boast and run his mouth, only to speak in front of a largely empty venue and being thoroughly embarrassed. The majority of the folks behind the effort had no way to make a difference in person, so sitting on their rear end and using social media to attempt to make a change can't really be called slacktivism either, I'd say.

Im highly offended you left out Stays. Going to start a campaign now to bring GiP down.

I'll have to check with the Bunnies whether I can afford to apologize to you without ending up in a two-front war.
