Moon may say Trump deserves the Nobel Prize, but based on what I’ve seen, I think it should be him. Imagine the amount of shit Moon has gone through just to get to here?! He’s done more to try and make this work then I’ve seen from anyone else

I think they should award a rare, but timely joint Nobel Prize to all three of them. That would forever bind them together in history in a way that might keep pressure on them to personally avoid tarnishing the accolade. It would play to their egos rather than being some other worthless piece of paper.

Isn’t Trump’s whole deal that we need to stop trying to fix the world, and start focusing on domestic issues? Unless I’m wrong, Trump seemed to run on a campaign of being strong when we’re needed, but no longer looking to police the world, so the idea of America’s declining influence sounds like everything is going well. To me, it seems like the Koreas have been figuring this out on their own as a reaction to Trump’s actions which have amounted to... tweets? Press releases? Phone calls? How much money do you think was saved by not holding a summit? How many opportunities for agitators to derail or attack the summit?

We only see a fraction of the interaction between international governments and act like we know better than the people who do this for a living. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if this was an option from the beginning.

I tend to agree. I'd like to think that Trump saw his place in getting this peace ball rolling, but understands that working out the details is something best left to the Koreas.

Yes, I'm thinking of roller blades because that's what the poster I replied to said.

What were you thinking of when I mentioned having to be gay?

Yeah we've been talking about this too. Something like a "cooldown period" to make sure there's been a sufficient amount of time that's passed that the legitimate owner of the data either has a chance to see the (likely multiple) notices that their data is being exported, and that they have a chance to get to us to stop the export if they notice something fishy. There seem to be a lot of potential edge cases and surface for abuse, and if anything it feels a lot like a security analog of the byzantine generals problem.

Make sure the system accounts for a user who dies and cannot respond to notices that someone else is requesting their data for identity theft.

This puts quite a macabre twist on a "cooldown period."

Waze actually does now have a setting for "Reduce Difficult Intersections" which is basically as you described. I've recently had more issues with Gmaps routes since it doesn't seem to have such a setting.

uptwolait 1 point

Which would seem to make it even easier for them to implement the feature in Maps, since Google owns Waze.

You just might be a unicorn then. Most people look through the comments, find comments they agree with and proclaim it as the truth.

because it aligns with my confirmation biases.

Daylio

It's a basic journaling/mood/activity tracker I've used every day for almost 2 years. You can add custom activities (all self-reported) and have it remind you each day to keep it updated. Once you've collected enough data, it can start to pick out trends in how your moods and activities correlate (ex: you're most happy on days you've hung out with friends, or most bleh when you've drank).

Unfortunately it doesn't go too in-depth with analysis, and would be cool if it had some AI smarts to better identify trends instead of the mostly manual work it requires now. But you can export all your data to Google Drive and probably put it through something more sophisticated if you really want.

uptwolait 2 points

Does it also allow tracking if the number of hours of sleep you get each night? Because I'm really interested in whether or not there is a correlation for me and I'm not consistent enough with manually tracking it to get a long term trend.

You mean the mixed economy that most countries are presently using, where certain resources aren't subject to capitalism because they're things that are vital to life but aren't as easy to get access to as, say, food? Things like water, healthcare, that sort of thing?

You could probably stroke the top of its head and nose pretty safely so long as you are steady and have no danger of slipping. There's video of other people doing it in situations like this. And sharks in the wild seem to line up to be petted when they know what to expect from divers.

I think I remember reading her heart ended up on the opposite side of her chest from the force of the crash.

Edit: Apparently I was remembering the wikipedia article about the crash.

Despite attempts to save her, Diana's internal injuries were too extensive: her heart had been displaced to the right side of the chest, which tore the pulmonary vein and the pericardium.

"Opposite" was a poor word choice on my part.
