    Yeah, they're fractional averages rounded up for display purposes - but to have the bars based on the original float and display the integer is super misleading.

    [Squints at video thumbnail again]

    You know what, I watched that video yesterday and I didn't even notice. That's.... pretty crappy. If you're going to round the numbers the round them all, not just the ones in the labels. It's not even as if this is a "one-man-band" kind of channel, Linus Media Group has a team of editors beavering away. I did a comparison video a while ago between two processors and I agonised over making sure the graphs were right.

    With regards to Linus' video; The frame rates should be taken as an average, and his team should be allowing at least one decimal place to be in the charts. It looks rather dumb like that... :lol:

    The Canadian government has decided to recognize/apologise for the mistreatment of Native Americans (residential schools) by... get this, giving a bunch of white people a bank holiday in the summer for Canadians to supposedly contemplate the errors of the past.

    I just got a GDPR-centric email on my work address, from a company that I think may have gotten the wrong end of the stick in their GDPR training.

    It's about my "Right to be informed", okay, so far so legitimate... <reads on>
    Wait a sec, it's not about them informing me about what information they hold, it's about them asking for my permission so that they can inform me of "businesses who would like to become your suppliers or work with your department"

    Well it's exam results day and Jeremy Clarkson is reminding everyone that he got a C and a U on his O Levels.

    I'm assuming the teachers just didn't have the heart to give him the N and the T as well.

    ...and well-off parents.

    They invariably forget that but when they bust out the 'i **** up my exams and look at me now...' story.

    KILLJOY ALERT: You know those things are almost certainly faked right? As in, written by a human rather than being created with actual ML/AI/neural nets.

    Still funny though :grin:.

    I do not condone the actions of the driver (seriously, don't run people over).
    But, if you stand in front a moving vehicle to try forcing it to stop you are officially a moron.

    Unless you're Bruce Banner, Donald Blake or Peter Nicholas, in which case go ahead.
