Just watched that movie last night, it’s called Burn After Reading (re: the George Clooney looking-around part)
@DeepwaterJew, I remember seeing it in theaters. What a clusterfvck and mindfvck of a movie.
@Grybo, I loved it, great cast too
@Grybo, yup, saw it in the theater back in the day too with some friends. Between Brad getting blasted in the closet, and then the hatchet scene it was just hilarious crazy
Future subject: “Great Memes - A History “
@Getbacker, it'll be the most information-packed subject on the curriculum.
Theyll be studying how their GLORIOUS LEADERS defeated the bad orange man and his evil racist followers. And how THE GLORIOUS DEMOCRATES defeated racism by passing laws that helped the correct races and punished that evil race. How they fixed free speech by only allowing the people with the correct opinions talk.
@CocoasBro, I prefer liberal boxes
Was the 5g thing really that dumb? Some of what I read does point to the studies and regulations not being thorough enough. Not saying it causes cancer here, just understanding concerns.
@ThePandaPool , it is very dumb,as an electrical engineer it it just classic misinformation spreading, yes it can theoretically cause cancer but nit comes down to power output, it would need to be operating at the power of a microwave and you would need to be incredibly close to the tower for a long period of time to see any noticable effect. However this is the same for most radio frequency things including classic fm radio signals and 4G on phones.
@lree, at the same time research I had done was saying we had done sub par research on 4g too. I'm not disagreeing with you, I just dont get the "those people are fvcking clowns" feel from those people.
@lree, oh, and I'm not talking about the "5g causes covid" people. THEY are fvcking clowns.
@ThePandaPool , so basically the way the 5g conspiracy works is a half truth buried under a load of BS. They harp onto one fact about 5g while ignoring the context of the situation and caveats. The amount well be exposed to ends up being way less than the daily exposure of uv from being outside for a short period as iree eluded
@ThePandaPool , you're an idiot
@Captain Rumble, and I'm sure everyone values your opinion.
@ThePandaPool , I'm sure nobody values your opinion anymore. Not after that stupid @ss comment.
@ThePandaPool , while the research pool is rather shallow, since proving a connection or lack thereof takes years and no one wants to do that research, from a physics standpoint there’s essentially zero danger from 5G. It’s non-ionizing, so it doesn’t have enough energy to cause damage in the short term (like X-rays can, for example), and the energy dissipates quickly enough that nothing long term can happen. Theoretically you could construct a system that blasts you with enough energy to cause cellular damage, but at that point it’s not really 5G anymore
@NarwhalAssassin, eloquently put. That is pretty much the conclusion I came to, but I had to do a bit of research to push past the bullshjt to get there, that is why I dont hold it against the people that fell for it.
@ThePandaPool , regardless of lack of 4G testing (which I don't agree with), radio frequencies, which 4G and 5G are a type of, are highly studied and understood. The most dangerous part of it is RF burns which are incredibly rare. We have had radio frequencies for a very long time and there is no correlation to increase in cancer since the power transmitted is so low as is radiates out from the source.
@lree, the funny thing is in the reading I did, they didnt bring up the RF burns. It was all about cancer. What type of failure, or exposure would cause the RF burns?
@ThePandaPool , RF burns are essentially the flesh heating up and burning from the particles hitting it, it's what would likely happen at first if you put your hand in a microwave, it happens when you're incredibly close to a very very high power antenna. But as soon as any distance is put between yourself and the source, the power is too low to cause it. A sun burn is a type of RF burn and it's because its such a strong power source and you're around it for so long, so moral of the story, the sun will likely give you cancer faster than 5G
@lree, thank you sir. You are a gentleman and a scholar. My reading tonight will probably be about RF burns.
Except people will actually be wondering how the hell anyone fell for being a pro-masker
@Captain Swordsman, exactly. With the amount of data pouring out, and seeing the amount of case spikes from places with incredibly high mask wearing, the question has become: if masks supposedly work so well...why don't they work?
@Patches0houlihan, memes. Literally. People latching onto whatever daddy .gov tells them and making actual memes attacking anyone who knows what masks do (or rather, don't). Big tech is in on it too, with people being banned from Faceberg and other sites for posting a Dutch scientific study against the efficacy of masks.
