Incompetence usually.

Why would it be incompetence? It's an American paper that gets all of their revenue from America. Why spend the time/money making it GDPR compliant instead of just blocking Europe, since the block doesn't cost them anything?

Because it doesn't cost them anything to make it GDPR compliant either. Just get an intern to spend a day on updating the terms and conditions. Copy paste the new conditions at the bottom.

That's not how it works. To be GDPR compliant, first you need to hire a consultant to do a full audit of all of your data storage systems, to make sure that you aren't keeping any PII anywhere unexpected. Then you need to make sure that Europeans can delete that data, which is usually much harder than removing a row in a database.

For example, it took reddit many many months of planning, engineering and consultant time to be ready for GDPR. It was a huge expense in both time and money.

I mean, I don't see much evidence that emotions are more intense in teenagers. Mostly I'm seeing frequent mood swings and lack of control over emotions. That doesn't mean a teenager feels more sad than I do about a break up.

It's more about the fact that you've learned to cope with those feelings better than a teenager, so they don't affect you as strongly.

So are they actually feeling more sad, more angry, more happy than I am, or do I just have better adapted mechanisms for dealing with the emotions?

Well, let me put this way. There two structurally identical houses. One has fire sprinklers and fire retardant surfaces. The other does not. A fire starts in the living room. The house without fire suppression (coping mechanisms) burns down, while the other has a small burn in the living room.

Was one fire worse than the other?

And then Trump's new friend on the Supreme Court will just rule against even considering that evidence. There's a reason Trump picked this guy.

Here’s a question — why would a deal with a Supreme Court Justice actually work? Since it’s a lifetime appointment, couldn’t they just not do what they said they would? It’s not like anyone could stop them.

His judicial record says he’s not as extreme and everyone says. He’s supported abortion rights and gay rights in his rulings. How do we know he didn’t just tell trump what he wanted to hear to get the job?

  • What is the most creative thing you’ve seen done with the DeepLens so far?

  • What is the most unexpected thing you’ve seen with the DeepLens so far?

  • Do you think the DeepLens would be better at recognizing 100 duck sized horses or one horse size duck? What is your confidence level?

Is this the horse-size duck you want to recognize? That can be arranged!

He represents America as our President.

He represents a minority of Americans. It's important to remember that.

He is trying to advance America's interest. You are rooting against that.

Look man, it's one thing to be against his social policies like guns and immigration. It's another to be against negotiations with other countries. Good God, I see everyone here rooting for NK for fuck's sake. Every setback gets people making insane comments in favor of Kim vs Trump.

You want our president to fail because you hate him. That's sad and pathetic because if he fails, it is bad for America. Of course there are leftists declaring they want the economy to tank so Trump doesn't get credit so I'm not surprised.

We want him to fail because what he is doing is not in the best interest of America. It's in the best interest of Trump.

I don't want Russia to be more powerful, but I don't want them as a US ally either if it means forsaking our relationships with our long standing allies.

While the premise of NATO is great, it is true other nations should pay their fair share. It is true that we are the worlds piggy bank. No longer. I would guess this whole Trump pulling out of NATO is being used as a bargaining chip. We need to settle down and let things happen. A lot of talk, not very much action... YET.

You do realize that a secure world helps the USA right? International business is what drives our economy, and that is only possible when the world is at peace. It is in the interest of America to defend the world so that our businesses can thrive around the world.

Why does the pro-business party not see this?

Her: You can't use that theorem on your Geometry test because we haven't gotten that far in the book yet.

Me: But I derived it myself and proved it right here in the test, I didn't even assume it was true.

Her: Doesn't matter, it's later in the book, you can't use it now.

I lost the points on that problem even though the answer was correct.

This is super sweet, but wouldn't it have been faster to write the batch file than to write the instructions on paper?

So this is about the minimum length of time that Disney will allow theaters to pay for their first-run movies, and it appears to be 3 weeks.

That's not a problem for a theater that has 13 screens and and move the low-performing films to the smaller screens in weeks 2 and 3.

That's a huge problem for a venue that has 1 screen.

If I had to guess, it's basically an oversight on Disney's part that they don't really want to spend time to correct. Either the drive in will add more screens or pay, either way, Disney gets their cut.

If they go out of business, Disney doesn't give a crap, people aren't going to suddenly not decide to see Avengers 4 because it's not in a drive-in.

For many people with small children, the drive-in is the only way to see first run movies.

It certainly broke reddit. I was there, I remember.

I was going to link to the blog post about it, but it looks like they took all the old blog posts down. :(

But... you didn't need a smartphone or computer to tweet in 2009. It was text message based back then.

Yeah, but he still had a laptop

Which he claimed he didnt under oath

Oh I agree he lied under oath, I'm just saying using "he's been tweeting since 2009" is not an effective argument. We should call out this picture instead or something else.

Id like you to tell me why exactly its wrong that Trump would have a direct line to his peers and then id like you to tell me why those peers aren't getting lambasted in their respective countries for giving out their numbers just like him.

It's against Federal Law. All of the President's communications are subject to record keeping because he works for us.

and then id like you to tell me why those peers aren't getting lambasted in their respective countries for giving out their numbers just like him.

Either their countries don't have the same record keeping laws, their countries don't have freedom of speech and thus their citizens can't complain, or those leaders are using devices that are still recorded on their end.

The Space Shuttle Main Engine primary fuel pump had a flow rate of 1000 gallons per second (13,630,000 liters per hour). If the US still had a space program we could drain that cave in a day. :(

I’ve been in the same position, office of 30~ and I was the only guy. They talk about peeing SO MUCH! Any time they need to leave the office it’s like “just let me pee first, Tina you need to pee?” And Tina’s gon’ be so keen on having a pee with Sharon, every time.

But there was male and female toilets, and being the only male, it was like having my own private bathroom. I miss that job so much just for that reason.

You got lucky. My wife’s work was 40 women and two men, so they just got an “all genders” sign for the men’s room so that the women could use it too but the men were limited to only the all gender room.

She's not bad, she's just drawn that way.

To be fair, when the same was done under Obama, you were deemed an instant racist and bigot if you said anything negative about him.

Think about it. Do you think a blow up float of Obama with big ears and other negative features would have been allowed when he visited the UK?

You mean like how someone built an effigy of him pretty much exactly how you described, eating watermelon, and then burned it? In KENTUCKY, a US state? And nothing happened?

People ripped on Obama way more than they rip on Trump. Obama just never acknowledged it so it never got press.

The shit about Trump gets press because HE calls out because it bothers him so much. If Trump would just ignore it so would the press.

It doesn't say without translators.

Also they talk to each other on the phone all the time, just like he does with all the other leaders of countries.

So what's the big news? Same old conspiracy theory?

16 points · 18 days ago

Those phone calls are recorded, listened to by aides, and are part of the official record.

This meeting would not be recorded or part of the official record. That's what makes it big news.

Putin and Bush at Camp David, show me all the offical records for their conversations.

Nothing but delusional conspiracy theories.

See those guys right behind them? And who do you think took the photo?

Of course the records aren’t public, you know that as well as I do. But there were plenty of aides and translators at that summit you posted a picture of. I’m sure there were records.

It’s highly abnormal for the President to meet with any foreign leader without at least a notetaker present.

Will return on July 29th. :/ What in the world will be do till then? No Westworld and now a three week hiatus of LWT. Sundays are becoming grim.

I don’t do it near campus, unless it’s a football game day and we’re both walking towards the stadium.

But I say it when I see someone in cal gear away from the Bay Area. The farther from the bay, the more excitedly they respond.

Just a few weeks ago I saw someone from the Cal Band in Paris and we exchanged a Go Bears.

It's June. That means these are already the "cheap places". All the normal places were signed in May.

That's nice if you don't care if they vote, but that's not how democracy works. Everyone who is legally entitled is supposed to be able to vote. Putting up any barrier to that subverts democracy.

You can choose to buy a yacht any time. You just choose not to spend $300,000,000 doing it. No one put that barrier there. You just chose not to.

Do you see how silly that sounds? Everything has a cost, in either time or money. When the government puts an added cost in time, that's still a cost. Not everyone can choose to avoid that cost.

You keep focusing on the people who might be wanted or criminals. What about the poor people who just don't have time to get an ID because they can't take time off work? Why should those people not get to vote? It isn't laziness, it's cost.
