At this point if you’re watching YouTube videos on youtube.com, you’re just asking for a bad time.


Yeah, the base game will, as @PolandIsAStateOfMind already pointed out. Rather than getting the boring ass barebones base game for free, everyone would be better off waiting for something like Paralives or Tiny Life instead.


Crude or not, that’s pretty creative! Remove the text and you have instructions for a bidet.



So they now have a higher life expectancy than a country with an obesity problem, poorly regulated food market and almost completely privatized healthcare? Um, congrats.


This is probably not a meme, so apologies for that. I do find it funny, though. Here's what the cookie selection window looks like: ![](https://lemmy.ml/pictrs/image/50fde2cf-2c58-4bb4-a47c-a234741f3564.png) ![](https://lemmy.ml/pictrs/image/8c82a67c-d52c-43a8-9d55-d960c1870f0b.png)

No kidding. Just a few days ago I was reading up on Alex Jones’ trial and I came across this headline. The line gets blurrier and blurrier.


No offense to OP, but I had to check whether that baby selling headline was real or not, because it seemed like satire. How wrong I was, it’s actually for real. I’m not posting a link, though, because it goes to a facebook page.



This is probably how Long Long Man makes his sandwiches.


However, the rhetoric on the Kiwifarms site and specific, targeted threats have escalated over the last 48 hours to the point that we believe there is an unprecedented emergency and immediate threat to human life unlike we have previously seen from Kiwifarms or any other customer before.

Unprecedented?!


Renting is insane right now. I moved out of my parents’ house to live by myself. Once I discovered the rent was half my paycheck, I moved back to my parents’ house.



How much money was spent on this, I wonder?


I kind of do this. Not necessarily eat the food from least to most favourite, but if there’s something on the plate I’m not a fan of, I’ll try to eat that first. I feel like if I eat that part last, it’ll be more difficult to eat because I’ll already be full and satisfied from eating all the good stuff. Does that make sense?


Ah, my bad, I’m not good at detecting irony sometimes. Thanks for explaining, though.


Is this related in any way to the Cube Engine (link)? Seems very similar.


I only recognize Zuckerberg and Bezos. Who are the rest?


Not a lawyer, etc etc, but as I understand it, yes, it’s still manslaughter. The place where a motor vehicles strikes a person doesn’t really matter. What matters is whether the accident was due to negligence, which would make it vehicular manslaughter, or whether it was done by murderous intent, which would make it vehicular homicide. Someone correct me if I’m wrong, though.

Are there any good alternatives to Glassdoor?
Because according to [this](https://libreddit.kavin.rocks/r/antiwork/comments/w2q99i/glassdoor_just_lost_a_lawsuit_and_must_now_reveal/) they must now reveal user details.

Learn and play Ashes: Rise of the Phoenixborn (it's a card game)
So I recently got this board game. It's sort of, kind of like Magic: the Gathering. You play as a so-called Phoenixborn and you have a set number of hit points. When they reach zero, you lose. There's a bit more to it than that, but that's the gist of it. Alas, it's kind of hard to get a match going with my friends. Then I came across this neat webpage dedicated to the game. It is: https://ashes.live/ What I find neat about this page is that it links to not one, not two, but THREE resources where you can practice playing! - Option 1 (free): [Ashteki](https://ashteki.com/). Play against a human - Option 2 (free): [Felt Table](https://felttable.com/ashes). Play against an AI (what I mostly use) - Option 3: [Ashes Reborn for Tabletop Simulator](https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2386753960). The mod is free, but like the name implies, you need to own Tabletop Simulator on Steam first. As for the rules, they're near the bottom of the page at the Files section. There are also other resources like youtube tutorials and premade decks and stuff. Anyway, just thought I'd share.

Diablo Immortal is now banned in China
This is hilarious. Blizzard created Diablo Immortal with the express purpose of getting their foot into the Chinese market. Then some genius at Blizzard had the brilliant idea to make a post on Weibou (a social network in China) to make fun of Xi Jinping: [Picture of post](https://lemmy.ml/pictrs/image/b9b4aa88-e394-4821-8944-c6693f5060a7.webp) Welp, there goes that Tencent money. Couldn't have happened to a nicer company, too.

Dragon's Dogma II has been announced
Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ndLqGPqeQqM&t=691s I was very impressed with how Dragon's Dogma handled battles with huge enemies. The combat was so good. Instead of hacking away at their ankles, you could climb them and hack away at their weakspots. Or, if you prefer solid ground beneath your feet, you could also impale them with an icy spike three times your size using magick. Speaking of, the some of the spells were insane. I mean just [look](https://dragonsdogma.fandom.com/wiki/Gicel?file=Skill_Sorc_Gicel.gif) [at](https://dragonsdogma.fandom.com/wiki/Bolide?file=Skill_Sorc_Bolide.gif) [this](https://dragonsdogma.fandom.com/wiki/Seism?file=Skill_Sorc_Seism.gif) [madness](https://dragonsdogma.fandom.com/wiki/Maelstrom?file=Skill_Sorc_Maelstorm.gif). And those aren't even the most powerful versions. Very excited for this.

What's the cheapest hardware that can playback videos at 1080p?
There are so many options out there, it's kind of dizzying. I'm looking for a cheap solution that I could hook up to a TV and ethernet, so it could run a flavor of Linux (or BSD) and play videos at 1080p. Bonus points if it can handle 1080p@60 FPS. Other than that, it would be used for light web browsing. I was looking at Raspberry Pi 4, but is there anything else you would suggest?
