    [–] Obama Tells Ottawa Crowd ‘Deepfake’ Videos Have Him Worried mmmcake 1 points ago in politics

    Bingo. They don’t need to be perfect to be effective. Imagine if a verifiably fake video/audio of Trump saying the N-word (that is just good enough to briefly fool a MSM outlet) is released right before or after China releases a 100% legit Apprentice tape they hacked.

    CNN apologizing once for a deepfake could inoculate not just Trump, but every other recorded racist for years.

    [–] Historians! If you could have any historical moment or time period made into a film which period or moment would it be and why? mmmcake 7 points ago in history

    General Harriet Tubman!

    • Helping “bloody Kansas” abolitionist John Brown plan a slave insurrection as America heads towards civil war. She help him plan and fund and recruit for the Harper’s Ferry raid and after it fails he gets hunted down and hung in Virginia as America’s 1st convicted traitor.
    • Repeatedly attempting to rescue her family and other enslaved people including not being able to save some because she lacked money to pay a bribe and another time drugging children to sedate them so they wouldn’t be caught by slave-catchers.
    • Working with the Colonel James Montgomery to train and arm runaway slaves against the orders of his superiors.
    • She sailed on the ship “John Adams” during the raid on Combahee Ferry where over 700 enslaved people where freed and multiple plantations burned in a coordinated raid.
    • Her planning and network of spies were an invaluable resource to abolitionists and the Union army.
    • Still not on the $20 bill.

    [–] Is that you Lyanna? mmmcake 1 points ago in freefolk

    Only Starks in the crypts. Tony maybe? Could also be Lady Stoneheart’s long awaited debut.

    [–] Is that you Lyanna? mmmcake 3 points ago in freefolk

    Good thing for the people hiding in the crypt that Ned and Robb got their caps detated.

    She should be on a hill somewhere, under a fruit tree, closer to where Jon was fighting so he’d have to decapitate his Mom’s corpse.

    [–] Why the finale was appropriate mmmcake -1 points ago in TrueDetective

    I interpreted as his best memory (admits he loves Amelia in bar) then worst memory (Vietnam) then he dies.

    [–] Ancient Roman slave collar, 4th century B.C.,[960 x 860] mmmcake 33 points ago in ArtefactPorn

    So the enslaved person who had this fastened around their neck never had it taken off and that’s why it is intact?

    Yes. Pell Bridge in the background.

    [–] Matthew Whitaker’s Appointment as Acting Attorney General Is Illegal mmmcake 23 points ago in politics

    “Any federal criminal defendant can sue to block his prosecution, citing Thomas’ logic to argue that Whitaker is exercising his powers unlawfully.”

    So as long as Whitaker is in there illegally any federal criminal defendant could block their prosecution? That’s kind of a brilliant and frustrating loophole.

    [–] Matthew Whitaker’s Appointment as Acting Attorney General Is Illegal mmmcake 1 points ago in politics

    Bingo. Instead of questioning Mueller’s authority when he’s indicted junior’s legal team could argue any prosecution from the DOJ with Whitaker illegitimately at the helm is an abuse of power. If there is no mechanism for removing Whitaker then Trump can save his son and cronies 210 days at a time.
