    [–] Every now and then we need to laugh at the DNC. Twitter is here for us hglman 0 points ago in Political_Revolution

    Your complacency and contentedness is what saddens me. You are defined by a willingness to accept any alternative because you are so terrified of this alternative. Never mind that the difference between the two parties is surface details and how much they pretend to care. How about actually demanding candidates you want to vote for not have to vote for.

    Yes the eastern loop is one of the best urban spaces.

    Yes, yes they are and thinking they aren't is the problem. The compromise on the left is a just as responsible for the move right as the belligerent right.

    [–] Study shows rapid rise in mass school shootings in the US - “In less than 18 years, we have already seen more deaths related to school shootings than in the whole 20th century. One alarming trend is that the overwhelming majority of 21st-century shooters were adolescents” hglman 1 points ago in EverythingScience

    That is not correct.

    Persons with bipolar disorder are at significantly increased risk for violence, with some history of violent behavior ranging from 9.4% to just under 50%, often in the presence of comorbid diagnoses.15-18 Bipolar patients are prone to agitation that can result in impulsive aggression during manic and mixed episodes. However, depressed states can involve intense dysphoria with agitation and irritability, which can also increase the risk of violent behavior.

    [–] What elements of highways will change when over 50% of the cars are self-driving? Will roads be constructed differently? Different waypoints? Will human-driven cars need special lanes, etc? hglman 1 points ago in SelfDrivingCars

    I am not following your argument why children plus living in suburbia assuming equal or less cost for a self driving car means you still need to own one.

    Like the company linked above, a child specific service could provide clean child specific vehicles with the needed seats.

    [–] “Progressive” millionaire candidate for Michigan governor accused of not paying staff hglman 1 points ago in Political_Revolution

    Yes, agreed absolutism is almost always wrong. That said, being unwilling to examine large scale change can lead to being stuck in local minima. This is the current state of affairs. More radical change will be needed.

    well, mostly it was joke in relation to your skepticism of socialists and libertarians. If your not a fan of those groups, you must really dislike them together.

    [–] 'Too expensive' to delete millions of police mugshots of innocent people, minister claims. Up to 20m facial images are retained - six years after High Court ruling that the practice is unlawful because of the 'risk of stigmatisation'. hglman 1 points ago in worldnews

    What you are talking about and why the law is are not the same. You are worried about some sort of thought crime, abstract idea of who gets to remember what. GDPR has a very specific prescription that applies to corporation and the data that lives on there physical servers.

    What the law says is that when you engage with a business, the data that is generated by the interaction is the property of the user not the business. Its pretty simple.

    That is in no way what GDPR says needs to happen.

    From https://www.eugdpr.org/key-changes.html

    Right to be Forgotten Also known as Data Erasure, the right to be forgotten entitles the data subject to have the data controller erase his/her personal data, cease further dissemination of the data, and potentially have third parties halt processing of the data. The conditions for erasure, as outlined in article 17, include the data no longer being relevant to original purposes for processing, or a data subjects withdrawing consent. It should also be noted that this right requires controllers to compare the subjects' rights to "the public interest in the availability of the data" when considering such requests.

    This is a very specific actionable prescription, its not some thought crime law.
