    [–] Wholesome tweet BrassMunkee 117 points ago in wholesomememes

    It also gives you and your spouse legal family status, which is important in situations like medical decisions, estate inheritance, etc. It doesn’t matter if you’ve been together for 40 years and “act” like a married couple. If you’re not married, you’re not family according to doctors and lawyers.

    Personally, I’d rather not have my mother-in-law make decisions regarding my wife’s life support.

    [–] Samuel L Jackson wasn’t having any of their bullshit tn BrassMunkee 5 points ago in quityourbullshit

    I mean, what do you think “brown nosing” means? Kissing ass? Sucking up?

    It has nothing to do with sexual preferences. Both straight and gay men can “suck a dick” to get ahead. The insult is merely that you’re performing a sexual favor for something in return, be it status, access or money. The gender or sexuality of the target is irrelevant.

    Can I just thank everyone in this thread for introducing me to something really awesome?

    [–] Have a locksmith open a door and refuse to pay, now you pay twice. BrassMunkee 1 points ago * (lasted edited 11 days ago) in MaliciousCompliance

    I coach people on customer service for a living. This a legitimate strategy. I call it “showing your work.” It seems shady but it’s honestly true. People are just less happy if they feel like you didn’t have to do much to help them.

    Mileage may vary of course, some people are just kind and appreciate any help. It also depends on how desperate they are in need of said service.

    If you think this strategy is crazy, you should explore “acting like you love your job.” People like being helped by people who enjoy helping. In my experience, so few companies do this, and it’s an easy linguistic skill to pick up, even if you’re just going through the motions to get your 8 hours in and go home.

    Obvious troll account people. Quick glance at post history is all it takes.

    Hmm, Interroburn. I think you invented a new level.

    [–] TIL Phyllis from "The Office" would pay bills and do Christmas shopping online from the office computers in the background. BrassMunkee 7 points ago in todayilearned

    I’d be ok with a reunion mini series or something. Like where are they now, camera crew visits each of them, see Jim and Pam in Texas. I know it wouldn’t be amazing but could be fun.

    But they tried to keep scrubs alive with that awful med school season. I think when you end on that note it makes it less likely to revive later. It’s like oh. That story is no longer in an interesting place.

    [–] 33 always had to be in the shadow of 23. BrassMunkee 0 points ago in blackpeoplegifs

    Sorry man. You said Reddit is upside down because people upvoted someone that posted a sports rule slightly incorrectly, who then corrected it later. It’s not even like the rule never existed, it was the difference between leaving the hands and hitting the rim. You’re saying you can’t understand why thousands of people could glance over the comment and say “yeah this seems right.” Talk about presumptuous and pretentious.

    Oh us phony plebeians upvoted someone who had the gall edit his own comment and correct himself, we’re so upside down!

    You’ve compared this to false rape accusations. You’ve thrown out ad hominem attacked (pretentious, high school, lack of self awareness.) So I am sorry if I haven’t “got” what you are trying to say when your argument is buried so deep in that nonsense.

    Lastly, you have a good day too.

    [–] 33 always had to be in the shadow of 23. BrassMunkee 0 points ago in blackpeoplegifs

    ... but it is ok for people to be wrong. It’s not a crime, we are flawed, we aren’t perfect. As long as you change your mind when faced with new evidence and admit it. And that happened. Most of the votes came after his edit admitting it.

    [–] Shots f i r e d BrassMunkee 7 points ago in SequelMemes

    Yeah I dunno, I was with the other guy for a bit in thread but now I wonder. All we had during the prequels was a small group of like minded nerds on some back alley topical forum with maybe, maybe 500 members.

    I do agree the participation in today’s platforms has a lot to do with the severity of the backlash.

    [–] 33 always had to be in the shadow of 23. BrassMunkee 1 points ago in blackpeoplegifs

    Bro I’m just talking random trivia, not legal accusations, relax.

    [–] 33 always had to be in the shadow of 23. BrassMunkee 0 points ago in blackpeoplegifs

    I didn’t miss that at all. Multiple, even thousands of people, can be wrong about something. It’s not a big deal dude.

    [–] 33 always had to be in the shadow of 23. BrassMunkee 2 points ago in blackpeoplegifs

    That’s asinine. There’s clearly going to be a reasonable explanation for why so many people remember a minor detail like this rule differently than what it is. Maybe rules changed. Maybe it’s the rule in NCAA. Maybe they played in high school and that was the rule there.

    If you think Reddit is upside down because they are wrong about an insignificant detail that was willingly corrected in under an hour, I’m uncertain how you don’t implode when interacting with people out in the real world.

    [–] TIL that the city of Dallas, Texas has lost every single one of 82 court cases against the same man, Robert Groden, over several decades. BrassMunkee 4 points ago in todayilearned

    As someone working at a US company that spent the last year preparing for a successful transition to GDPR because we have tons of EU customers, I’m calling bullshit on it just “feeling good.”

    It’s amazing how often even I mismanaged people’s basic data until this came along. You get used to just doing what you need to get your job done. GDPR is good for the future of privacy and data protection. I’m interested in what these “core problems” are that aren’t being addressed yet because good lord, it flipped us upside down for 18 months getting ready for it.

    FYI it’s not meant to prevent big company data collection. That would be disastrous economically. But now, you can be forgotten, you can request to see what data is collected on you. And companies are expected to protect that data from negligent use, or outside breech.

    [–] Democrats founded the KKK! 👌 BrassMunkee 4 points ago in PoliticalHumor

    So you’re just ignoring the fact that Democrat LBJ ran on anti-segregation, won and expanded civil rights and set a new platform for modern democrats that largely exists to this day.

    Also ignoring Republican Barry Goldwater who supported segregation against LBJ in ‘64.

    You can read campaign speeches, read platform summaries, debate topics, congressional voting records. All of it. All of it shows a swap in race politics. Voting records in counties held predominantly by one party swap over around the same time.

    The guy in your video even says what I shared here is true. It’s the first 2 points he brings up and concedes on.

    Your video isn’t even suggesting a swap didn’t happen, he seems to be trying unsuccessfully to cast doubt on why it happened.

    [–] Democrats founded the KKK! 👌 BrassMunkee 8 points ago in PoliticalHumor

    This is the problem, right here. “We disagree with the story telling.” You don’t just get to wave your hand and discount facts you don’t like as “stories.” Then you have the gall to link some two-bit hack, a literal felon that violated campaign finance law (par for the course repub), he’s telling an actual story and you eat it up.

    I feel more comfortable agreeing with decades of documented history.

    [–] Successful taper from Phenibut BrassMunkee 3 points ago in phenibut

    So several things. Not everyone’s experience is the same. This guy had a decent ride down. Not everyone is so lucky. Second, this guy was taking 1-2 grams a day after a year, and that’s really good. In my own experience I was up to 4 grams in less time. I got there because taking less wasn’t an option after awhile unless I wanted withdrawals at work.

    You shouldn’t take it everyday. It’s a fact. There’s no upside to it. Most of the time you only develop tolerance and dependency. Maybe some people have it easier and that’s awesome but it’s common to have a hard time if abused.

    Is this like getting of heroin? Hell no. Not even close, obviously. It can still suck though. It’s widely accepted to take it 2-3 times a week at most, and to take long breaks. There’s a reason for that.

    [–] Successful taper from Phenibut BrassMunkee 2 points ago in phenibut

    For the anxiety maybe but I’ve seen it recommended everywhere for withdrawal. I tried it, and I couldn’t stand it. It felt like I was being pricked with needles all over, it was intense. It drove me mad and never took it again, it was really painful.

    [–] Successful taper from Phenibut BrassMunkee 2 points ago in phenibut

    Oof. Beta-Alanine. I tried that on my taper a year ago and the pins and needles I got were unbearable. Did that happen to you? Grats by the way.

    [–] In light of recent happenings with China BrassMunkee 3 points ago in PoliticalHumor

    Which was completely unnecessary based on the context of the conversation. It’s like if someone said you were watching television and you correct them saying “Excuse me, I’m actually watching a flat screen television. There are other kinds of televisions you know.”
