    [–] A Suspected Network Of 13,000 Twitter Bots Pumped Out Pro-Brexit Messages In The Run-Up To The EU Vote Autarch_Kade 4 points ago in worldnews

    It's amazing how well propaganda works.

    Or at least, how well conservative minded people around the world will fall for bullshit

    [–] In Blade Runner 2049, it is established that wood has become a very rare commodity. Niander Wallace's office is made almost exclusively out of wood, showing his wealth and power. Autarch_Kade 1 points ago in MovieDetails

    I could spend a dollar on researching interstellar colonization today. I guess if I spent that on my home office, that'd be an incredibly waste compared to the benefit of the research.

    You have no idea, no fucking clue whatsoever, if money would actually speed up the process in any meaningful way. Sometimes there are other constraints that money can't solve efficiently.

    Freaking dumb. But there's no way you could possibly see that, judging by your comments.

    Wednesday... Woden's Day, Odin's Day.

    Spoiler etymology alert: The next day is Thor's Day, Thursday. The one after that is for Frigg - Frige - Frige's Day, Friday. Next one is named after Saturn, Saturday. Next one is the Sun's Day, followed by Moon's Day (sunday, monday). Finally, we've come to Tyr's day.

    [–] I’m in “asking for a raise” heaven. I want to approach this the right way and make sure I get as much as I can without asking for way too much. Autarch_Kade 2 points ago in personalfinance

    Numbers I look at say the average salary for my title is anywhere between my exact pay and 25% more than I make.

    Average is between those? In other words there are people that make less, and people that make over 25% more.

    You're not "average" for your title at your job. You've taken on a ton of responsibility, and you're repeatedly told you're indispensable. Ask yourself why you'd be happy making the average salary, when your value is higher than that. It's probably some fear of not wanting to rock the boat too much, or personal feelings about your coworkers. Acknowledge those, and move past them. Negotiation is all business. It's money, and serious, but don't get caught up because of how others might perceive it. Focus on your value.

    Personally, I'd consider asking for more than 25%. I would not consider "average" pay acceptable for your well beyond average importance and performance.

    As long as you're confident that you can make significantly more elsewhere (such as 25% more), then you can be confident asking for more to stay with how valuable you are there already.

    Schedule a meeting. Have prepared notes of praise and recognition you've received. Detail increased responsibilities since your pay was established. Show how nobody else can do what you do there. Bring up your willingness to step up and handle projects. Mention the extra years of experience that automatically make you more valuable in the job market.

    Basically, you'll be showing you're series. You'll be justifying the amount of the raise. And you'll be confident, because if they flat out refuse, or offer less than you'd hoped, you can demand more or leave and make more than you do now.

    Ask for 40-50% more, after you've detailed how valuable you are. They'll probably waffle and give you some BS about not in the budget, have to check with someone else, not the right time, etc. You can probably expect responses like that, and might want to check online for some typical excuses and how to overcome them.

    They should come back with an offer, probably a fair bit less than what you asked. At this point reiterate some of your value, and ask to bring it into the middle. Remember, you can do this because even if they say no here, you'd still get a raise. So again, counter.

    Then they'll come with their next offer. Acknowledge the money seems better, and say you'd be comfortable accepting that salary if it came with a few extra paid vacation days. Something non-monetary.

    Then when they come back, just accept.

    He repeatedly faked wanting to commit to marriage with her, and she throws stuff at his head.

    I think they're perfect for each other

    [–] 13-year-old sexually abused by Florida teacher gives birth to baby girl Autarch_Kade 7 points ago in news

    Shh, I'm sure someone will come along and offer you some alternative facts and bronze age myths shortly.

    [–] 13-year-old sexually abused by Florida teacher gives birth to baby girl Autarch_Kade 5 points ago in news

    I suppose because sexual abuse is more encompassing for what happened to her.

    Multiple men abused her over a period of time. Rape was obviously a part of that too.

    [–] 13-year-old sexually abused by Florida teacher gives birth to baby girl Autarch_Kade 8 points ago in news

    Yep, this guy is religious and conservative.

    Best to just move on, this one's too far gone.

    [–] Female, male or non-binary: California legally recognizes a third gender on identification documents Autarch_Kade 1 points ago in lgbt

    It's listed as "sex" on the document.

    People should either accept that for medical reasons and realize that's not gender, OR protest any indication of gender at all on the birth certificate.

    Otherwise they're basically saying it's acceptable for other people to pick someone else's gender.

    [–] Californians Will Soon Have Nonbinary as a Gender Option on Birth Certificates Autarch_Kade 9 points ago in lgbt

    I always thought birth certificates indicated sex, not gender.

    If it was gender, shouldn't people protest that even being on the certificate at all? I wouldn't think picking someone else's gender would be acceptable, parents, doctors, or otherwise.

    [–] Compulsive liars of reddit, what's the most heroic way you've sacrificed your own life to save someone else's? Autarch_Kade 1 points ago in AskReddit

    I'm a full time caretaker for my grandmother, who has Alzheimer's. It doesn't really leave me with any way to live my own life outside of that. But she needs me.

    [–] (US) I'm about to vomit. My checking account is overdrawn by ($500,977.00) Autarch_Kade 1 points ago in personalfinance

    It's probably because you were being an ignorant, bumbling idiot with a not-for-profit organization's account.

    It's probably not a mistake, and if you want people to actually respond you shouldn't try and delete extremely relevant information, like "My nonprofit's executive board seized my bank account registered in my name. [OH]"

    Maybe get a lawyer, unless you just want to be a raging dick, refuse to listen to them, and tell them they don't know how to do their jobs like you did in that other thread.

    Hope this all gets resolved, in whatever manner the law requires.

    Some would enter with bags or briefcases and leave without them, some would enter with nothing and leave with bags or briefcases.

    Dude you should totally have gone in there when nobody was around. There were probably hundreds of thousands of dollars in there you could have taken.

    I mean sure you'd be robbing the Russian mob, but think of how you could have ended up a positive millionaire, instead of a negative one!

    Turns out there is another person with the exact same first, middle, and last name who lives two towns over and he is a much, much worse version of me.

    There's someone with the same names as me living about an hour away from me, in the same state. Same age too. He killed his dad.

    Hoping that never affects people trying to google my name as part of any background checks.

    Special snowflakes needed a safe space from trigger words like climate change, so conservatives demanded the scary EPA change some words.

    [–] Southwest flight celebrates 1st 'unmanned' flight with all-female crew Autarch_Kade 1 points ago in news

    After tens of thousands of flights with this not happening, it just did for the first time.

    It's noteworthy, but nothing to get absolutely livid over and rage about sexism like some crazies here did.

    [–] Southwest flight celebrates 1st 'unmanned' flight with all-female crew Autarch_Kade 2 points ago in news

    It's happened thousands of times already. It's so common that it isn't worth noting.

    Now, if the norm was tens of thousands of flights of all females and mixed, and then eventually there was finally one flight that was all male, for the first time, that'd absolutely be remarkable.

    Don't get butthurt by an unusual event just because there are women and no men.

    [–] Southwest flight celebrates 1st 'unmanned' flight with all-female crew Autarch_Kade 2 points ago in news

    Some people just get so incredibly hung up on wording that they get incredibly butthurt and think a company is now sexist. It's insane.
