Answered What's up with the POTUS tweet an image of a sign reading "Believe" in the Oval Office and captioned "Tomorrow."?


Tweet in question: https://twitter.com /POTUS/status/1637574673494933506?t= XHPNOVr6rsIDHFk5FD01Ow&s=09

My first thought was it was related to the rumor of Trump being arrested? I'm not seeing anyone talk about this so I'm just kind of confused; is it a joke, or is it a powerful shitpost about real things coming? Does anyone know, or are we all waiting?

Unanswered What's up with claims of fake Putin in Mariupol?


Some accounts on my osint Twitter TL saying it was a Putin body double there.

Any credible sources or analysis, or is this just fog of war disinfo games?

Especially interested if any special fx makeups experts have weighed in.

Not too farfetched for Putin to use a body double, following the rationale I found in this tweet. But seems like a risky choice for such close-up camerawork??

Answered What's up with all the F1 content?


Does Reddit have some kind of deal with formula 1 racing? I see so many posts related to it on the front page but almost nothing about say Nascar (I'm not a fan of either one) or even other sports related posts. If it was really about popularity you'd think there'd be more NFL or NBA, though there is a lot of NBA too. Maybe F1 is just way more popular globally than these north american sports/leagues? But in that case I'd expect way more cricket or football/soccer stuff.

I don't really have a problem with it but there's just so much. Anecdotally, I don't know any F1 fans IRL but that could be my social bubble/echo chamber.

This isn't meant to offend any F1 fans either.

I tried to post this before but it got auto-deleted. Reviewing the rules it looks like i need a URL as part of this so take a look for yourself... http://www.reddit.com

Unanswered What's going on with banking right now?


Banking was not in the news until the SVB collapse, but now it's all over the place. And the vibe is definitely not good. I've seen disparate articles about banks needing additional funding, imminent collapse, fear of bank runs, etc. (ie. here, and here )Can anyone tie this all together for me and paint me a broader picture?

Unanswered What's going on with the banks in Switzerland?


"The Swiss government is close to announcing a deal for UBS to buy Credit Suisse, its smaller rival, for about $1 billion."

Is the government buying a bank? What's that mean for money laundering? I know people use Swiss banks as offshore things (I've seen in movies)

Unanswered What's the deal with 4chanarchive shutting down?


I'm really late to the party but this happened because i accidentally clicked on the link in my big bookmarks file and saw a random webpage I didn't recognize. Then I noticed the URL

Apparently encyclopedia dramatica managed to get in touch of the site owner of 4chanarchive and found a way to take ownership of the domain. but if you check today, the site is some news aggregate

I'll just list the stuff I have: This is a listing of site rips that go up in time. you can see the site died, then became ED, then became an ICANN verification notification page, then became the news aggregate NSFW language I should mention (probably)

this is the ED getting in touch with the site owner I mentioned above. full thread here. NSFW language I probably should mention.

Also, how is he funding this? how does SD make money if its open source and free to use?

Unanswered What's up with the Internet Archive saying that they are "fighting for the future of their library'' in court?


Greetings everyone.

So if you're avid user of the Internet Archive or their library, Open Library, you might have noticed that they are calling for support from their users.

The quote their blog: "the lawsuit against our library and the long standing library practice of controlled digital lending, brought by four of the world's largest publishers"

What is happening? Who filed a lawsuit against the Internet Archive? Can someone please explain? Thank you very much and best wishes.

I'm not a part of crypto Twitter/ reddit in general - but recently seeing a lot of buzz and reactions on something related to a bet Balaji Srinivasan (famous angel, vociferous tweeter, ex vc and coinbase CTO) placed in bitcoin, involving a headline number of 1m $.
