    Windows 11. Yay or Nay?

    I'm curious to play around with it - do you not have to wait until it pops up in "Windows Update" to actually perform the upgrade? My PC is "Windows 11 ready" according to the Health app

    Hardware PS5 SMAP Vulnerability

    So, does accessing the user space give a user enough room to actually execute arbitrary code? I'd assume there'd be a lot more barriers to break down, but this is definitely out of my wheelhouse. Cool stuff, though.

    What sources back up the anti-vaccine movement?

    @The Catboy The closest you're going to get to a peer reviewed paper that "backs up" anti vaxers, and by that I only mean the paper that most of them will try and use to back up their argument, is going to be Andrew Wakefield's. It's been redacted for obvious reasons, but it's worth a read if...

    What sources back up the anti-vaccine movement?

    That’s fair - perhaps just going over the famous paper yourself would be an interesting enough read. It’s surprising how “bad” a study can be just because of faulty conclusions from reasonable testing. The sample size is also pretty small, which is common, but it’s overall shockingly whacky...

    What sources back up the anti-vaccine movement?

    That's a good point, but the sources in the description contain the articles in question if you want to bypass the youtuber's take on it. Better than me pasting 20+ links here :)

    What sources back up the anti-vaccine movement?

    Yeah, the autism study is the highlight of the hbomberguy video and there's a tonnnnnn of info out there tearing that study apart, in general. If we divide up the conversation into any serious side effects from past vaccines, then there is literature on that. Not for COVID vaccines, though -...

    What sources back up the anti-vaccine movement?

    @The Catboy if you want some more peer reviewed papers that discuss serious side effects posted, I did find a couple referenced in this article, here: https://www.nature.com/articles/nm1209 Googling around for those two studies it quotes, I can't access the full articles for free, but maybe I'm...

    What sources back up the anti-vaccine movement?

    I don't know if there are, but I've looked for them and haven't found any. The study from the early 90's was "credible" until peers realized the evidence was mostly just worries from parents, and not a properly controlled, unbiased study. To it's credit, it does list the limitations of the...

    What sources back up the anti-vaccine movement?

    Totally agree. I'm saying the video is largely about peer reviewed sources. It attempts to cover the best possible argument the anti-vax stance has and then scrutinize them in detail. The sources are all in a google doc in the video description - there's over 100 of them. Some are articles...

    Comment by 'appleburger' in 'PS5 Collection Update (Oct 21)'

    Nice! What are your favorite experiences on the console, so far? I've only played Demon's Souls so far, but I have spiderman and have been looking forward to finally checking that one out. Also played some God of War in 60fps mode, which is amazing.

    What sources back up the anti-vaccine movement?

    If sources backing up anti-vax are what you're after, that hbomberguy video summarizes what evidence is out there very well. It's subsequently torn to pieces, because the "evidence" is terrible and fraught with deception, but it's the best summary of the movement's evidence I've come across so far.

    Covid-19 vaccine

    Sure, lumping people into groups on either side of any argument is weak, I agree. That’s why I said that. Not once in this thread have I done that - just dropping the facts and asking leading questions to better understand where the rest of you are coming from.

    What sources back up the anti-vaccine movement?

    Never said that, and I have no idea where you’re pulling that from lol The study also clearly says the age range is 18-55. You aren’t paying attention to what anyone is saying. You’re creating arguments out of thin air from points nobody is making. Literally, nobody here has said anything...

    What sources back up the anti-vaccine movement?

    Oof, this is a train wreck of a response. Sorry to be rude, and I don't know if you're young or English isn't your first language, so my goal isn't to insult you, but I'll do my best to help out with the reading comprehension here (we could be talking about baking cakes and this would still...

    What sources back up the anti-vaccine movement?

    I'll PM you if you'd like, but I want to lay out some points here for other folks that come across your posts. I didn't go into detail on purpose as I'm not interested in getting any further into this as it's too controversial but the FDA and CDC are tainted by those with financial interest...

    What sources back up the anti-vaccine movement?

    I don't see anyone here trying to convince anyone to not get vaccinated. I see mostly people saying that they fully respect others' views and want to respect them, voicing their own anecdotal reasons for feeling wary. Being on the "wrong" side of the evidence can have dire consequences, yes...

    What sources back up the anti-vaccine movement?

    Yes, anecdotal evidence is extremely powerful for people, and yes you are correct that people will take any adversity as an attack on them personally. However, that's not true for everyone. Some people look into what they don't know rather than focusing on what they think they do know. Some...

    What sources back up the anti-vaccine movement?

    That's going to depend on who you talk to. It's not reasonable to lump those who are hesitant in with those who fully claim vaccines cause autism, or something like that. That would be a straw-man argument, and that's a waste of everyone's time. I would hesitate to assume everyone in this...
