    Epic is now probably my most hated game developer/publisher, and I don't even play rocket league. This is just crazy scummy, so much further than I thought they would go.

    The data set seems to be ~7000 words from some sort of game. I don't know if a game where you are trying to lie would give the best results compared to actual lying. I have no idea how else one would collect data about lies at scale, but I think that the results of a game are going to be noticeably different than real life.

    A lot of Linux distributions, like Ubuntu or Manjaro, have dual booting built into their installers. It is super easy to set up, and very easy to remove if you don't like it. I currently have a 100 gb windows partition and a 400 gb Manjaro partition on my laptop, but I started with just an 80gb partition and slowly moved everything over.

    There seems not be a completely isolated case. The google play store has many studios that seem to make one game template then just spit it out with new art. It makes the google play store incredibly hard to navigate, especially because they target common keywords, search almost feels pointless. I get what google is doing here but I don't think it is the right direction to keep going in if they want to improve the quality of the content on their storefront, which I don't believe is their goal.
