I've been dying to tell the story of how I talked to a Harvard professor (Stephanie Mudge) that wrote a book on neoliberalism (https://www.hup.harvard.edu/catalog.php?isbn=9780674971813) but completely fell apart when I pushed her on some of her remarks on markets (out of curiosity, not because I wanted a debate).

Anyway, you can always send me papers or whatever that you think is a better representation of the problems with neoliberalism, that I WILL read. Don't even have to talk to me about it.

Edit: words
Edit: she made an appearance on the majority report, too! https://majorityreportradio.com/201...ocialism-to-neoliberalism-w-stephanie-l-mudge
She was super nice and it's totally possible I caught her off guard btw. So, I'll just add that.

You probably just asked her questions that were physically impossible to answer. Her mouth couldn't physically move to the correct configuration for those sounds to be produced.

Czechia had a trial with an Imam who was charged with support, financing and endorsment of terrorism. Sentenced for 10 years. Anyway, the guy declared in the proceedings that he does not accept the court's jurisdicition and that its verdict is not important as it is in contradiction with Sharia law. Defending this guy must have been a real dream job for his attorney :lol:

This might work, but it sounds ridiculous :xf-grin:

Immerse requires you to scan a QR code and then take a picture of your right ear using your smartphone.
Immerse’s AI then uses algorithms to analyze all of the parts of your ear to predict how your ears receive sound.

The Immerse app is a paid subscription service, with subscriptions starting at $3 per month 🤨

My Sony headphones have something similar. Haven't bothered to actually photograph my ears and test it out yet, though. You've motivated me to do so.

Just so you know, it doesn't work. There is literally no way it can make them sound better than just normally having the drivers actually evenly output all frequences without additional bias. It is physically impossible to make them sound better than the best they can sound.
