KSP on 4K... by Snow in KerbalSpaceProgram

[–]magnora7 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I just got a super-wide triple monitor setup (6400x1080) all hooked up, and I might have to try playing it KSP again with it. Half-Life 2 is amazing on it, as is Factorio

Yeah that reeks. Reminds me of that murder case where they deliberately let the press go crazy and destroy the crime scene, resulting in destroyed evidence.

The poor handling of Assange's things just opens up all these doors to corruption and creating false narratives

And I think it also promotes the idea that we should wait for heros to save us, rather than doing the work to improve the world ourselves.

It also promotes the idea you need fantastical superpowers to be able to accomplish important things, which is disempowering to an average person.

Neat instrument, just found out about it today. The bars are like mute buttons that mute most (but not all) strings.

I can't imagine how great America would be today if Ron Paul had won the presidency, instead of being boxed out by the corporate-owned (and CIA-owned) media.

job interview with a millennial by HeyImSancho in SundogsPlace

Lol as imagined by a baby boomer.

In reality, the interviewer is 30 minutes late, unprepared, and discards you based on the fact he has 200 other applicants and one of them went to his Alma Mater. Yet never has the dignity to send you a formal rejection letter. The current job hiring market is a joke, and blaming it on young people is ridiculous tbh.

Most baby boomers got hired without a related college education and got to keep the same job for 40 years. Luxuries younger people can't even imagine in today's hiring world. This is basically blaming the victim as far as I see it. Baby boomers stroking their ego about how great they are, when they were the ones who created this world that we're all currently suffering from!

That said, this generational warfare nonsense (which the original post helps reinforce) is just another divide and conquer tactic, when the real battle is the norms of corporate culture vs a populace that is tired of being exploited from birth for little personal gain.

I thought IQ was defined so that the average score is 100?

As an American, I totally understand how you feel...

Many people are smart enough to separate the actions of the government from the everyday people, so no need for shame :)

Authoritarianism is the result of many political systems... I can point to many historical examples of authoritarian governments that aren't socialist. That's all I'm saying.

Wow thanks for the story.

I think the best way to let them learn from the School of Hard Knocks is to let the world knock them around a bit. What I mean is that this sounds like a personality still developing in a lot of ways. But I also would never have interjected in to an adult conversation as a teen and told them they were stupid. My parents raised me where if I had done such a thing it would've put me a WHOLE LOT of trouble (like months of grounding, potential military school, etc). Anyway I'm not sure the exact ages of the people involved.

I think from your perspective you just have to pick your battles, and this baseball issue probably just isn't worth it. But I definitely understand the frustration and the larger point of the principle of the thing. The reality of it though is you can bring a horse to water but you cannot make it drink. I think just give advice where you can and move on, there's no reason casting pearls before swine. And there's also no reason to waste your emotional energy on someone's knee-jerk opinion!

I get mad about stuff like this too, but often it's not so much the thing itself, as it is what the thing says about general society and the direction we're heading. I am mad at that, sometimes.

But in a way this Earth is like a 7-billion-person Ouiji Board. The direction it moves is pretty random and out of our control, in a lot of ways.

And what would serve you and yours best in the short and long run? Would winning the discussion actually change the direction things are moving in? Is the inner peace you're giving up by ignoring the issue worth that potential gain of changing the course of humanity ever so slightly? Does the division created between yourself and your family about this issue actually help or hurt the overall peace and tranquility of your immediate community?

I don't know the answers to these in your exact situation, but I think these questions are a good place to start.

I've heard we have 20 fucks a day to give about stuff. Spend them wisely!
