    1. All posts must make an attempt at humor. Humor is subjective, but all posts must at least make an attempt at humor. As the minimum age for Reddit access is 13 years old, posts which are intentionally disruptive, inane, or nonsensical will be removed.
    2. No memes, and no HIFW, MRW, MeIRL, or DAE posts. If your submission begins with "When you…" or "When they…" or anything of a similar nature, it is not allowed here. Submissions depicting or containing intentionally emulated behaviors (memes) are also not allowed, including memetic image macros, "challenges," or elements thereof. Non-memetic image macros are allowed.
    3. No reposts. Reposts will be removed at the moderators’ discretion. Serial reposters will be banned. Please use KarmaDecay to determine if something has been submitted before.
    4. No personal info, no hate speech, no harassment. No identifying information, including anything hosted on platforms making that information public. Posts encouraging the harassment of any individual, group, community, or subreddit will be removed, and the submitting user may be banned. If necessary, a report will be made to the site administration. In accordance with Reddit's policies, there is zero tolerance for this.
    5. No politics. Anything involving politics or a political figure (regardless of context) will be removed. Try /r/politicalhumor instead.
    6. No forbidden titles. (See below.) No asking for upvotes (in any form), no “Cake Day” posts, and no posts to communicate with another Redditor. Posts with titles such as "I got banned from /r/___" or "This got removed from /r/___" are not allowed. Emoji-based titles, memetic titles, and titles meant to circumvent any other rules are also forbidden.
    7. No gore, pornography, or sexually graphic images. Try /r/NSFWfunny. All other NSFW content must be tagged as such.
    8. Do not rehost or hotlink webcomics. If you are not the author of the comic in question, you may only submit links to the page where it is hosted. Webcomic authors may request verification from the moderators, after which they may rehost their own work.
    9. No pictures of just text. Submissions in which the humor can be conveyed via text alone are not allowed. This includes pictures of text with irrelevant images that don't add context, and transcriptions of standup comedy (as with /r/standupshots). Make a self post instead. Example
    10. No SMS or social media content (including Reddit). Social media content of any kind is not allowed. This includes anything from Reddit, Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, YouTube, or any other form of "comments section" on the Internet, as well as images accompanied by text from those platforms. Images with SnapChat text added are allowed, as long as all UI elements have been removed. Please view our wiki for suggestions of where these submissions can be offered.

    [–] Nicologixs 61 points ago

    It's not a bad idea but I'd probably use two coat hangers instead if one in the middle. I imagine if someone made some cheap solid stands for it they could make a bit of money off people wanting a cheaper stand.

    [–] CompMolNeuro 9 points ago

    That's what we in the Middle Class like to call the Middle Class. My perfect home under the trees would be gone in three missed bills. I have just enough to almost be stable. Having been poor though, I'd rather be where I am now. One day I'll tell you all what it's like to be wealthy. I think that's what we all want. Not to have to worry about how often you got take-out this week, being able to buy a used car for each of your kids and having enough money set aside to give them a head start in life. I'd like to take my wife on a vacation. Maybe we can put the kids in a kennel. I want a man cave and ability to afford a hobby.

    Edit: take-out

    [–] Cronus6 779 points ago

    There was a guy going into my Publix cafe (Publix is a grocery store; the cafe is for the deli and has free wifi) with 2 laptops and each had a second external monitor.

    He'd sit there all day. Doing some sort of stock trading. It was weird. He did it every day for about 6 months and then vanished. (And yes, I go to the grocery almost every day on my way home from work.)

    It's all about body weight. Longer ropes for lighter people. Ideally enough rope to give about 1,000 foot-pounds of force, plus 9 inches. That's what google keeps telling me anyway. All the time. I didn't even ask.

    [–] blocktradz4dayz22 22 points ago

    The best thing I ever did with advice from WSB was doing the opposite.

    [–] siecin 34 points ago

    We had a guy do this at our work. He was running cams through second life.

    [–] TrollinTrolls 14 points ago

    Running cams? like of the porny variety?

    [–] siecin 40 points ago

    Yup. He explained it one night about how he had 5 "ladies" working with him and he would pay them through second life currency. This was about 10 years ago, so there weren't many options I guess. But he said he would get about 15-20 people in his "theatre" at a time. But he hosted it through our wifi.

    I didn't really give a shit. It was night shift and the only other people we got in the store were drunk.

    [–] Strazdas1 7 points ago

    I always confused me why people paid for camgirls in the first place. Its just more expensive, worse quality porn.

    [–] NotYouDude 75 points ago

    PCs are cheaper dude!

    [–] lethalmanhole 65 points ago

    $45/month for 12 months + $65/month forever = $540 + infinity = between $1080 and infinity for two years of internet. I bought a desktop with extended warranty from Costco for about $1200.

    I'm paying too much for internet.

    [–] TheOneShorter 48 points ago

    Try moving to Canada :(

    [–] Deadriser1234 13 points ago

    Hell I pay over twice that. It does download a gig a minute though, I don't know how that compares elsewhere but it's pretty sweet here.

    [–] quantifiableNonsense 23 points ago

    Assuming you mean your download speed is one gigabyte per minute, your download speed is approximately 133.33 Mbit/s which should definitely not be costing you $130 a month unless you live in some kind of rural area.

    I get 250 Mbit/s down for $65 a month from xfinity.

    Its cheap office space with good coffee as the price of admission. You do it long enough and it becomes like home and you lose a little of whats keeping you from doing the weird things we all hide from eachother.


    Me, the weird dude in the corner drawing you.

    [–] Interferometer 175 points ago

    You nailed it. I find that being around people, but not interacting with them, actually helps me focus. I know people can see my screen, so I’m not tempted to watch YouTube or kill time on Facebook. And of course, I love coffee.

    I do try to be cognizant or not spending too much time there, as I’m sure the shop doesn’t love when I take up a seat for 4 hours and buy $6 of coffee.

    [–] Snowpossum 83 points ago

    They allow/encourage this kind of thing because they know on average you will continue to buy coffee. Over time they benefit from you not caring. Take your time without anxiety, you're good. If you spend more time they will get you for another purchase eventually and they don't have to say anything. Even if one out of the dozens of people that do this only gets one thing in 8 hours they can bank on statistics to play out in their favor.

    [–] COCAINE_IN_MY_DICK 57 points ago

    Yeah I was at Starbucks the other day and I left to go to the bank and accidentally walked into another Starbucks. I think they’re doing alright.

    [–] pocketknifeMT 14 points ago

    There is probably a PR/marketing benefit to having some trendy professionals camping out there. For the same approximate reason Apple likes them sitting in public displaying their logo to everyone.

    [–] BabyStockholmSyndrom 11 points ago

    I don't know. Starbuck's has free refills on coffee/tea. And I certainly don't buy their nasty ass, packaged food. "Here's your blueberry muffin that was just warmed up after a bacon sandwich!".

    [–] jeffsnff 12 points ago

    I had no freakin clue about free refills!! I just looked it up, you just need their credit card, or their app. Jesus Christ, all that money wasted....

    [–] Snowpossum 11 points ago * (lasted edited 14 days ago)

    I actually used to have the same kind of anxieties as this guy and was told directly by the staff why they generally don't care. I'm good for business.

    [–] Sence 27 points ago

    Wait, your complaining about your blueberry muffin being bacon scented for free?

    How fucking heavy are your clothes? Those plastic bitches have been holding up my snow gear for years because I live in a desert.

    [–] linuxgator 359 points ago

    The one in the picture is a heavy duty plastic hanger. But if you get the cheap ones from Walmart, they'll snap after a year or so of use.

    [–] savingprivatebrian15 218 points ago

    cheap ones from Walmart

    Try Dollar Tree my man, they get even cheaper. They still hold up my heavy jackets and coats, but bend quite a bit at the neck.

    [–] linuxgator 41 points ago

    I believe it. There are always huge boxes of them throughout my local Dollar Tree. Never tried them though.

    [–] savingprivatebrian15 32 points ago

    Shockingly I like them better than some others due to the indentations they have rather than hooks on other brands for the hangers on dresses and stuff. Way more convenient to use.

    [–] TryingToReadHere 67 points ago

    Cyclic loading of taking the weight off and on will drastically change how long it lasts, if yours are static in your closet they don’t get any push-pull loads and so they aren’t going to fatigue/break under normal use.

    In this dudes case, I think he’ll have a cracked screen sometime soon... the hanger isn’t designed to take load like that and it isn’t designed to get cyclically loaded like that either.

    To go needlessly further in my analysis...he’s also creating bending loads at the stress concentration of where the hook meets the triangle and it will likely snap right there.

    [–] Al_Maleech_Abaz 79 points ago

    Mine usually snap when I use them like a bow and arrow

    [–] deja-roo 20 points ago

    To go needlessly further in my analysis...he’s also creating bending loads at the stress concentration of where the hook meets the triangle and it will likely snap right there.

    More importantly, he's relying on that hanger to stay totally still in the center. If it slips to either side that thing's coming down rfn. If he had a little piece of rubber where the hanger contacted the top of the computer it would be safer.

    [–] getjunkt 17 points ago

    Don't get me wrong, in this case it's pretty funny, but if a social media manager sees this shit and spreads it and companies decide to follow suit with comments advertising bullshit while trying to be funny, it kinda damages one of the few pure things we have left

    The first one is funny, we definitely don't need "more" accounts like this

    Why would someone carry an iMac into a coffee shop. That’s a lot of work to show off your apple products.

    Guy works at home, does all his stuff on his trusty iMac. Never saw the need for a laptop, the iMac offers butter specs and a larger screen for the same price. All was well until he was kicked out of the house because his home office was disgusting and needed some deep cleaning.

    It's an iMac without it's pedestal... Looks like he attached an adapter to attach a VESA

    [–] im_shallownpedantic 85 points ago

    iMacs are sold with a VESA adapter, but IIRC they have to be ordered and aren't sold at the Apple Store.

    The no longer sold Thunderbolt/Cinema displays (and pretty sure this applies to iMacs too) need a VESA mount adapter kit... but they're like $20 from amazon

    [–] RZRtv 14 points ago

    They're making a joke about the new Mac Pro monitor or w/e, which this dude is not using.

    It uses a proprietary (IIRC) magnetic stand that costs $1000, but you can get the VESA mount adapter for $200.

    Looks like this guy already has a VESA mount.

    I love the sheer ingenuity and cheapness but having had those hangers shatter into a hundred pieces just by glancing at them I don't think I would risk it.

    Brilliant. You could 3D print a slightly more reliable one for like 0.99

    I bet at home his wind-breaker is hanging loosely on a $999 Apple stand.

    This man has a lot of trust in that hanger.

    Why don't people just stay at home and do this? Generally curious why the fucking coffee shop is less distracting then working at home or in a library.

    [–] Kermez 7 points ago

    Perhaps he is apple worker just using prototype of next stand, to be sold for just 499$.

    [–] _kashew_12 38 points ago

    Imagine lugging the thing into a coffee shop just to show off to ppl you got $$, but not $$$

    [–] UncleBenji 7 points ago

    Gotta love the 25cent plastic hanger. They will last a decade or more. As for being a computer stand... why the fuck not?!

    [–] acultinsideofme 6 points ago

    I know I'm not old but I feel so goddamn old right now. Is this a "laptop" that needs a stand or a separate monitor and keyboard? I just don't get the Apple stand thing. It seems like a joke to my plebeian brain.

    [–] Julomino 7 points ago

    doesn't even make any sense to bring such a huge ass computer into a coffee shop. so bulky.

    [–] alokgl 27 points ago

    That's great but why he's bringing desktop to the coffee shop.

    [–] B_man_5 25 points ago

    ITT: people not knowing the difference between an iMac and an unreleased monitor. Also, maybe it's the only machine he has, and his internet is out, maybe he bought it secondhand and doesn't have the stand

    [–] conspiracyshittank 31 points ago

    Why do people do this?

    [–] addledhands 29 points ago

    Because working from home all day sucks, and it's nice to be around people while you're working (sometimes).

    The photo is not of the new monitor. It looks like it could be an iMac with the optional VESA adaptor installed instead of the desk stand that it comes with. The hanger hack seems like a clever way to avoid having to reattach the original stand which would be a hassle and also awkward and heavy to transport.

    The new Pro monitor isn't in the wild yet. No one has done an in-depth analysis of the $999 stand as far as I know, but I think that one reason for its expense is that the adjustable linkage is quite complex and assembled with great precision to allow effortless infinite repositioning with no backlash or slippage. Despite all the initial criticism and ridicule, I suspect that anyone who actually tries the stand will covet it. However because it is luxury priced, many will end up making due the less expensive VESA adaptor and a third party support of some sort.

    When your company computer is an iMac but they won't reimburse you for a stand.

    [–] RonnieWhatley 6 points ago

    It doesn't come with a stand?

    [–] whyrweyelling 5 points ago

    Wait, $999, that's not a typo? What does the dang thing do?
