Can't wait for China to finally solve the Chinese problem for video games. It was looking grim with all the steadily growing gacha from China, but I think China has what it takes to stop China.

> Circa 2010, as Tesla was developing its first mass-market car, the Model S sedan, engineers on the project would occasionally hitch rides from Los Angeles to Silicon Valley on Musk's private jet. On one such trip, an engineer recalled asking Musk his opinion on the sedan's suspension - should it be sporty, like a BMW, or cushy, like a Lexus?
> "I'm going to sell a f--- load of cars, so whatever suspension you need so I can sell a f--- load of cars - that's the suspension I want," Musk replied, the engineer said

¥ Government calls in to have her returned back
¥ Grandma calls in and tells her it's not safe. Media narrative is that runner is crazy and needs psychiatric testing
¥ In airport Tsimanouskaya walks up to Japanese police officers and probably says something along the lines of "tasukete" and is taken into protection by the security.

I really like the styles of wall paintings apparently used in homes (more likely villas) in Rome. The different styles are really cool - they even had a minimalist phase! It's always a little strange to contemplate how such brilliant artistry would largely disappear throughout the dark ages and give way to "unique" Christian art.

I haven't liked LTT for quite some time, but they got access to the Steam Deck and did a really good and thorough job reviewing it. It honestly looks pretty great even in this early prototype stage. I just wish they would've looked a bit more at the UI and desktop experience, but from the brief shots of it it looks pretty good too.

>Sony and Funimation have completed their acquisition of Crunchyroll. Beginning lats year, Sony Pictures Entertainment had expressed their interest in acquiring the Crunchyroll following reports of AT&T expressing their interest in selling it, and it was then that a deal was formed. But following a a series of investigations into the acquisition, Sony and Funimation have now completed their planned acquition of the Crunchyroll anime brand.

With China cracking down on anything vaguely to do with US culture and their investment into the Chinese mobile market I wonder if the company is going to start tanking soon. Not only are they getting battered culturally, legally, now monetarily.

Apparently Toxoplasmosis is associated with risk of developing psychosis, but the link between how and why that's exactly the case isn't well understood. Put another way, exposure to cat feces could potentially cause a person to develop psychosis. If true, it seems exceedingly rare for this to be an exact cause, but apparently the chief researcher on this topic maintains that the exact reasoning behind someone developing psychosis due to exposure to Toxoplasma is potentially related to genetic predisposition for some sort neurological inflammation while also during the period of brain development. Interesting stuff.

>>1401
I wear a face mask when cleaning a litterbox. I acknowledge that it exists, but health issues that are mysterious, directly effecting our lifestyles and potentially life altering are sensationalized either in direction of fear or recklesness. If there were a strong link, you'd think it would be reported by now, but as that article says there's a lot of zero correlation in experiments.

 No.1403

>>1402
>there's a lot of zero correlation in experiments.
Well... Not exactly. It seems researchers do agree that Toxoplasma has some role in inducing psychosis, but from the sample sizes evaluated they found no cases in which Toxoplasma did in fact induce psychosis. I think it's a little like trying to find a condition that affects 1 in 10,000 people. With only 5,000 people, it's pretty likely that you simply won't identify a single case. After all, absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.
