    [–] I thought most freelancers could relate. Jafit 1 points ago in freelance

    Good advice is often simple but hard to implement. The reason you've heard it before and consider it banal is because it is true. I'm afraid there are no non-banal magic tricks that you're going to find in a video on reddit.

    I find software development more of an art, since its iterative. You can draw things over and over, scrub bits out, and redraw until you've got something that looks ok. Engineers build something right the first time because you can't build a bridge over and over until it stays standing... and the client doesn't suddenly decide that they'd rather have a tunnel halfway through construction usually

    So it makes perfect sense that we argue amongst ourselves about stupid bullshit.

    [–] places to visit for people with social anxiety Jafit 1 points ago in Liverpool

    Try the Cat Cafe on Bold St.

    Its like £1 for 5 mins and the drinks are free. So by the time you've paid for a coffee and croissant at Nero across the road you could have had 30 mins watching cats chase each other around.

    Of course if you're alergic to cats that might be a bad idea.

    Pewds has never once tried to spin the media's attacks against him as the liberals out to get him, but conservative fans of his have taken it that way.

    And I don't think it's an invalid observation to make whether or not pewds said it.

    [–] 🚨⚠️🚨THE SUBGAP IS NOW -50,000🚨⚠️🚨 Jafit 4 points ago in PewdiepieSubmissions

    But conservatives saw Pewds being attacked by and condemning liberal media sites and being politically incorrect, and now suddenly Pewds is an ally of the right.

    Er no? The only people who say pewds is on the right are the media sites who are smearing him.

    A conservative pointing out the overwhelming political bias of the entities that attack pewds doesn't make pewds an ally of those people. It's possible to point out a phenomenon without having to claim that the victim of that phenomenon is on "your side". You can find plenty of examples of conservatives pointing out cases of liberals who have been taken down by the far left... that doesn't suddenly transform those liberals into "allies of the right".

    Commenting on the political inclinations of the people who attack pewds is hardly invalid or unexpected, or indeed untrue. And if it is true that conservatives have a monopoly on that kind of observation then I'd say that's a failure of the reasonable left. You as a (hopefully) reasonable liberal should also be calling out the radicals of your own side, especially if they're occupying positions of institutional power in the media or the state, because those people are dangerous and counterproductive.

    John Oliver's team are the most thorough researchers I have ever seen

    John Oliver and other late-night comedians present complex issues in a one-sided manner, in such a way that makes the audience believe that the argument has already been settled and there's nothing left to do but laugh at and ridicule the idiots who were on the "losing side", who are invariably the political opponents of the hosts and the audience. All while deflecting any criticism or counter-argument with "its just a comedy show lol"

    That's not good research, that's propaganda.

    You don't need to come to a Pewdiepie sub of all things and try to make it about your right vs left culture war.

    Its silly to pretend that Pewds isn't a part of the culture war, or that political correctness isn't the reason that pewds has become involved in the culture war. So it shouldn't be strange that you'd find a discussion of these issues here.

    "Anti-leftist drivel" is understandable, since political correctness is a left-wing phenomenon, and it's the left who have been attacking and smearing pewds. What do you expect to happen?

    [–] Liverpool appoints consortium to develop tall buildings policy Jafit 1 points ago in Liverpool

    I mean, that's kind of what it's like already. The Berlin bus tour is really weird, the audio consists of two people arguing about the gentrification of Soviet-era tenements. And the bus visits all the places the interesting things were before the war.

    It's hard to have much heritage when your city's history mostly involves getting repeatedly burned down and bombed by foreign armies

    [–] Liverpool appoints consortium to develop tall buildings policy Jafit 1 points ago in Liverpool

    The only skyscrapers I see being built are student accommodation, which is a bubble waiting to burst.

    The X1 on parliament street, that huge complex next to Lime St, Iconinc Ascent building on Renshaw st, Everything next to and around Zorbas at the bottom of Leece st...

    And yet that supposed Chinatown redevelopment project has been a boarded-up piece of wasteland for over 3 years.

    So when you say "our fanbase is filled with people like this too" you mean there's just a marginal number of crazies following a popular thing like with any other popular thing, and then say pewds isn't doing anything to promote that crazyness...

    Seems odd to bring it up, much less equate those crazies with SJWs.

    >Critiquing minutia of fake code someone made for a joke is both patronizing and pedantic.

    Putting something on the internet and expecting not to be criticised is asinine, especially when its wrong and the point was made quite politely.

    But immediately making it about gender when a legitimate point is made about your code is nothing short of pathetic. Doubly so when the point being made pertains to good practices that exist in order to improve accessibility for disabled people using screen readers and other tools. But it turns out this person doesn't actually care about disaffection of marginalised groups except apparently when they can use it as a weapon to browbeat people for questioning her because she's a woman.

    [–] Germany did it again with Article 13... Jafit 3 points ago in PewdiepieSubmissions

    15/20 conservative MEPs voted for it

    18/19 labour MEPs voted for it

    Political parties are interchangeable at this point.
