The action figure made for Sid from Toy Story!

I don’t even think that head is an O’Brien head. If it is, it was sculpted by someone who had never seen Colm Meany and was working like a police sketch artist.

Did you do that yourself, Guy? It’s really well-done!

So I was only a couple of years older than her in that movie when it came out in 1993 and knew UNIX and I still facepalmed at that line. It’s delivered in the silliest way.

The reflection is what makes it!

I grew up in a college town with a dad that was interested in computers but didn’t understand them, so I inherited them when he gave up. It gave me a lot of experience by the time that movie came out. I was already in high school too, so that helped. But if you wanted to use the internet back then, almost pre-web, knowing UNIX really helped.

You can do whatever ignorant thing you want, but I’m guessing ethnic Jewish groups like the Sephardic Jews (originally from Iberia) and Beta Israel (originally from Ethiopia) would object on the grounds that it would be really fucking stupid.

I don’t know if you’re a fan of Some More News, but their most recent episode was on all the terrible arguments to justify the Israeli genocide and the ‘title monkey’ keeps repeatedly asking “but do you condemn Hamas?”

It’s pretty amusing.

Making fun of black people for the name of their ethnicity might not be the best thing to do around here…

Or maybe they like to hump and they keep coming back for more!

To be fair- I did not make it, I saw it elsewhere.

My favorite is that female hyenas have a pseudopenis that makes it very hard to tell them from the male hyenas.

You left an R out of Gary’s name.

I don’t know if I would necessarily frame it as them being gay. Gay/straight may not even apply to whales. They may be like bonobos and just have sex with each other in all sorts of ways and combinations. They probably do have sex for pleasure since dolphins do. For all we know, both of these whales have fucked their way across the ocean with any whale they encountered.

But for sure there is a huge amount of evidence of same-sex copulation in the animal world no matter what you want to call it.

I’m a Jewish person today. That sign is not antisemitic, it’s accurate.

FlyingSquid,
@FlyingSquid@lemmy.world avatar

And as a Jewish person, I can vouch for this not being antisemitic. Jew does not equal Israeli or vice-versa. This is an Israeli genocide.

FlyingSquid,
@FlyingSquid@lemmy.world avatar

The vast majority of Jews do not accept what ancient iron age text happen to say as if they were modern moral texts and recognize their ancient flaws. Because most Jews aren’t Orthodox, who are the only ones who believe all that shit.

The rabbi at the temple when I was growing up was a lesbian. The rabbi at the temple there now (coincidentally) is a gay man. Considering homosexuality is condemned in the torah and they are still rabbis, that should tell you something.

@FlyingSquid@lemmy.world avatar

and stopped

How do you propose those organizations do that? Go to Gaza and start shooting at IDF troops?

FlyingSquid,
@FlyingSquid@lemmy.world avatar

None of that will stop a genocide that Netanyahu is dedicated to seeing to completion. The only person who can stop this genocide is Netanyahu. And none of those organizations will help there.

FlyingSquid,
@FlyingSquid@lemmy.world avatar

You said stop it, not have an effect. Those are very different.

FlyingSquid,
@FlyingSquid@lemmy.world avatar

Weird, because I’m a Jew and I don’t feel that way about people who disagree with me. Nor does any other Jew I know.

I am on a thread on another forum where we (mostly) put Godzilla in silly situations via Dall-E.

Sadly, I couldn’t get it to have Godzilla fight with a Gorn because Dall-E doesn’t seem to understand what a Gorn is beyond ‘Star Trek Alien.’

But if you’re curious to see the literally thousands of images we’ve thought up, I’d start at the bottom: forums.mst3k.com/t/dall-e-fun-with-an-ai/…/7488

It’s a great forum. Everyone is friendly.

I wish I had a friend group. Even if it had the red dude in it.

Even if they don’t buy more, reducing the size of fast food portions would not really help that problem.

I'm relatively unfamiliar with Linux. I'm getting a ThinkPad T460 and want to install Mint on it. Is there anything about the T460 I should know?

It’s probably been 15 years since I’ve used Linux and Mint seems to be the recommended distro for people who aren’t all that familiar with Linux like me, but I didn’t know if there was anything I should know with this ThinkPad model that anyone is familiar with. My searching around shows people saying everything from it...

FlyingSquid,
@FlyingSquid@lemmy.world avatar

Thank you, that is vital!

FlyingSquid,
@FlyingSquid@lemmy.world avatar

Great, thanks!

FlyingSquid,
@FlyingSquid@lemmy.world avatar

That is not good news. I do not want a perma throttled CPU. I’m not going to be doing anything that would require it. So I hope the T460 doesn’t have that problem.

FlyingSquid,
@FlyingSquid@lemmy.world avatar

That’s fine about the fingerprint reader. I’m not too concerned about that.

Please excuse my ignorance as I’ve not used Linux in a very, very long time… what is a flatpak?

FlyingSquid,
@FlyingSquid@lemmy.world avatar

Much appreciated. I will definitely not give up if I don’t like Mint. But since it seems to be a good intro distro, it seems like a good way to start.

FlyingSquid,
@FlyingSquid@lemmy.world avatar

Yes, it does have two batteries. That kind of sucks. But I don’t need all-day battery life, so hopefully that won’t be a huge issue.

FlyingSquid,
@FlyingSquid@lemmy.world avatar

I hope not, but if it is an issue, it doesn’t sound like it will be a huge one most of the time at least.

FlyingSquid,
@FlyingSquid@lemmy.world avatar

Thanks. Good to hear! I’m glad the other person mentioned the fans just in case though.

FlyingSquid,
@FlyingSquid@lemmy.world avatar

I’ll give it a view. Thanks!

FlyingSquid,
@FlyingSquid@lemmy.world avatar

Much like my searching, it seems like it’s all over the map in terms of experiences, although in general, it seems like the issues people have encountered are minor.

FlyingSquid,
@FlyingSquid@lemmy.world avatar

Awesome, thanks!

FlyingSquid,
@FlyingSquid@lemmy.world avatar

Thanks, but I think Mint will be fine for my purposes. This isn’t going to be a workhorse machine or anything. And I’m not really a gamer either.

FlyingSquid,
@FlyingSquid@lemmy.world avatar

Awesome, thanks for the info. I’m cool with the RAM it has. It’s not going to be doing anything intensive.

FlyingSquid,
@FlyingSquid@lemmy.world avatar

Thanks!

FlyingSquid,
@FlyingSquid@lemmy.world avatar

It’s what I could afford.
