Liquid Calcium from the drug store works much better than milk. Also if you get it all over your head, ears, eyes, etc. baby shampoo is a godsend for taking a shower. They can say water is the best to help it but from my 2 experiences I totally disagree. Some spray & gas has agents in it to make the effects much, much more worse when water is added to it. So come prepared protesters because the cops are fighting dirty here and it doesn't sound like any politician plans to stop them anytime soon! #BLM

previous episode on predators in gaming: "yes, tech companies need to do more, and we can totally make a law to incentivize reasonable moderation of online chat!" current episode: " no, any law would require tech companies to do something that isn't even possible, and will intrude on privacy to an intolerable extent!" Also, let's barely address our previous reporting, and hide behind our guests so that we don't have to take responsibility for our opinions.

Great reporting from @adrs on this topic. I have mixed feelings on the issue. Safety versus privacy is always a spicy meatball. Why not use metal detectors?

So sad that the fundraising for the clinical trials falls onto the family but it’s nice that the technology is available for them to help their son

Presumably Google has lots of data on white people's faces; that's why there's a data gap. So I wonder how they got that data, and whether the process was markedly different than the one used here, which I agree was not good. If the process was different (e.g. more transparent for white people), that is certainly an additional problem. If it was the same, then can we say that the project was wrong from the beginning? Or given the history, would it still be fundamentally different to use these tactics on marginalized people?
