What we think is logical could sound unillogical to an intelligence that thinks differently than humans
All hail the Algorithm.

Today's SMBC is oddly relevant:

I don't know if you lefties know how badly you've been owned, but after Steve King drank toilet water to prove that AOC is wrong about our concentration camps (He smacked his lips, you guys. He smacked his lips. It's all over), Laura Ingraham DESTROYED the Green New Deal and the very concepts of climate, science, and logic by trying to drink a lightbulb-infused steak through a plastic straw.

I worry that at some point someone's going to tell these lunatics that chugging bleach really triggers the libcucks because it makes you whiter inside.

...who told them to drink toilet water, or steaks, or eat lightbulbs. These people are elected?

Human behavior surprises me, a fellow human. Imagine what an AI would think of the things we do

King is. Ingraham is not; she's with Fox.

As for who told them...no one did. This is just what they do now.

The "toilet water" is from a fountain on top of the toilet.

What flaming dumbass decided that was a good idea to begin with, anyway? Like, everything else about this aside, who had the bright idea to pointedly combine "thing you drink or wash with" with "thing you piss or shit in", and what galaxy brained idiot subsequently gave the go-ahead to produce and install it?

Now, I'm all for mocking bigots, but I don't think installing drinking fountains in the toilet is a direct symptom of racism.

Points if you can show me it is, though.

Not caring about your prospective users to the point of doing damn stupid design like that probably does have pretty good odds of being pushed by racism, mind. Like, you're probably not going to try to peddle using that kind of thing on someone you think isn't subhuman to some degree. There's other options, but considering the actors involved... it's pretty high  up there in terms of potential motivating factors.

Conceptually could be other sorts of bigotry, or just peak capitalism shitting on people who can't do much to influence the market. The question would be if there's any other sector using those messed up things, or are they specifically being inflicted on ICE captives and whatnot?

Putting a fountain in the same stall as the toilet for 'efficiency' reasons does sound like peak capitalism. But still, hygiene issues. Does make one wonder why the hell such an idea was allowed to go through.

Probably both, when you think about it. Which is the worst combination.

It's a common design in places with limited space. Also helps save on plumbing. Only need one feed and one drain rather than a seperate one for each.

I'm not saying it's the best idea, but it's used fairly widely, and been done so for quite a while.
