could be reinfection is rare, or could be those who get COVID avoid it even more after knowing what it's like and the rare reinfections are those who's been unlucky (or careless)
if 2020 wants to be a real dick about things, before the election Trump will get re-infected and re-infect everyone else that got it from him the first time
 
@TimStone wrong movement buddy
you want the racists next door
 
I think they were just trying to be racist? But it's weird because if so try harder and if not, yeah, what?
 
2:17 AM
Good ol' Evangelicals
Anyway it will be good when Fox News runs a story about this tomorrow and then also some bros stand around in COD letting the President 360 no-scope them </cross-post>
 
4:05 AM
@TimStone would not be surprised if this was related to what was reported in the Afghan Files
is it really that hard to not commit war crimes?
 
4:33 AM
Quite the story arc there, but imagine putting that much effort in to see Don Jr. lmao
> Harrison is accused of using hotel points that belonged to her former in-laws, using their email address to access their cellphone service account and forging a press credential to access an event at Grand Canyon University where Donald Trump Jr. was a speaker, according to paperwork filed in Maricopa County Superior Court
 
 
1 hour later…
 
8 hours later…
could that be held as an article of impeachment?
 
@skullpatrol nope. just shows he's a hypocrite
not that his core base will care because they are all hypocrites
 
the hypocrisy of democracy
@Memor-X recall why he changed his last name to "X"
 
1:55 PM
@skullpatrol if you could link it to actual corruption/self-dealing/working in the interest of himself rather than the country, then absolutely it could be part of an impeachment inquiry
 
@BradC agreed, but unlikely
 
If this causes a deeper investigation into his China ties, then who knows?
> In the dossier, Steele claimed that the campaign was "relatively relaxed" about alleged ties between Trump and Russia, "because it deflected media and the Democrats' attention away from Trump's business dealings in China and other emerging markets. Unlike in Russia, these were substantial and involved the payment of large bribes and kickbacks which, were they to become public, would be potentially very damaging to their campaign."
 
come on pal, he's a casino owner with extensive experience covering up "payment of large bribes and kickbacks"
 
@skullpatrol name's not familiar to me
 
Malcolm X
> Malcolm X explained that the "X" symbolized the true African family name that he could never know. "For me, my 'X' replaced the white slavemaster name of 'Little' which some blue-eyed devil named Little had imposed upon my paternal forebears."[54]
 
2:32 PM
> The deal does not release any of the company's executives or owners from criminal liability. A criminal investigation is ongoing.
get their asses
 
@Unionhawk just read that on discord. exact same wording
 
 
1 hour later…
4:28 PM
@TimStone jfc
All sounds terrible. Especially number 2 wtf.
What's a QI claim?
 
@Wipqozn I think it's that qualified immunity shit that gives police officers the right to kill people
 
ಠ_ಠ
 
There are some real WTF parts in that article
> After she removes his microphone, Giuliani, 76, can be seen lying back on the bed, fiddling with his untucked shirt and reaching into his trousers. They are then interrupted by Borat who runs in and says: “She’s 15. She’s too old for you.”
> Although unfortunate, the circumstances of the setup appear consensual, with Giuliani led to believe he was being courted. Bakalova, 24, is highly plausible in the sting, despite also having to pretend, for the benefit of viewers, to be a feral child posing as a far-right journalist.
 
5:05 PM
Yeah I don't think Giuliani is, by this account, a pedophile or anything, but he is easily duped, which uhhh gestures broadly
 
It's just unbelievable how far Borat can go with the insanity and people still buy it somehow. "feral child posing as a far-right journalist" is not something I ever thought I'd read
 
5:21 PM
I would have had zero interest in the Borat movie. I barely know of Borat. Now I'll see it as soon as I can stream it. Nice job Sacha!
Damn. I need to look at The Guardian more often. I caught this while looking at the Borat story. It was the first I'd heard of it. Ex-members of Amy Coney Barrett faith group tell of trauma and sexual abuse
 
6:27 PM
Meta comment: I know in this room we try to reserve stars for the links/actual news items, as opposed to casually marking interesting or amusing comments, but lately people seem to be starring all news links
Which... in the immortal words of Syndrome from the Incredibles, "If everyone is special, then no one is."
Just my opinion.
On the other hand, there have been times in the past that the star list literally hasn't changed for, like, an entire week.
Surely we can find a reasonable balance between those two extremes
 
6:50 PM
@TimStone The first reply to that tweet really nails it. No sane person can take 4 more years of this
 
7:04 PM
The MAGA brain trust has decided that Rudy getting Rudy'ed is somehow revenge porn even though thank goodness it's not
 
 
1 hour later…
8:28 PM
lol Quibi is shutting down
 
9:06 PM
am I missing anything not knowing what that even is?
 
Not really
You know netflix original shows right? Well what if they were shorter and could only be watched on a mobile device
 
@Unionhawk you're leaving out the best part
you can only watch them vertically
Or was that a different streaming service?
Like, who came up with the idea of a vertical-only show? Like, our eyes are next to each other for a reason
 
Some say the coronavirus is a conspiracy by china but consider this: who stood to benefit the most from people having more time to watch quick bites of entertainment
 
9:46 PM
Can't believe we got Rudy and horny Fort Bragg all in the same day
Going with the "we were hacked" defense
 
10:06 PM
@Nzall The (possibly only) neat feature they had is that the videos are shot in such a way that you can view them in both orientations
 
@Jolenealaska So he's not saying he voted for Biden. Did he also write in the ghost of Ronald Reagan?
 
10:25 PM
Wouldn't be the only vote for reagan
 
> - Nationwide facial recognition tech
- LE backdoor to encryption
and people want to bitch about privacy from internet companies
 
no privacy from internet companies is why e2e encryption exists
Signal for example is battle tested, they literally do not have decrypted copies of your messages
You can subpoena them all day all they can give out is that you logged in and when
 
@Unionhawk and i assume the second point in my quote will render that moot
 
I mean in some cases that will just not be possible
It'll just be a matter of figuring out which cases going forward
Like what are you going to do send an email to the manager of gnu privacy guard
I hope it doesn't get to that point but if it does there are backup plans
 
@TimStone i was just about to guess that big book was blank
 
Tim
11:24 PM
Has the scandal about Biden mentioned by Trump two days ago been revealed? When?
@Jolenealaska His impact is very limited, IMHO
 
11:39 PM
@Tim which sandal? because Trump could make any shit up and his lackies will push it all over the place
