    [–] TIL The lack of an Oxford Comma in Maine state law cost Oakhurst Dairy $10 million in overtime pay for its drivers. JasontheFuzz 1 points ago in todayilearned

    What world do you live in? Are you not aware of the millions of people in such severe student loan debt that they will literally never be able to pay them off?

    Let's take a look at this article that seems copy/pasted from some website I've seen a few times.

    you can get loans consolidated at 3%

    Sounds great, except you start out with 5-15% interest, your payments are often more than rent, and you'll pay for years before a single dime goes toward the principle. Not so easy to build credit in that scenario!

    Oh and don't forget you can never declare bankruptcy on it.

    tuition for an in state public institution

    Ooh, state college! That'll impress your potential employer. Private colleges cost $30k a year. That's a workable year's salary, every year. Congrats on literally going backwards.

    For loans we are going with the average 4.8% and 10 years with only minimum payments made

    How about 15% like way too many kids are dealing with? Suddenly the monthly payment jumps to $1560/month for a $120,000 loan over 20 years, and you're paying over $95,000 in interest.

    Median HS Diploma wage rate is $12.83 Median College degree wage rate is $29.73

    Where are these magical $30/hour jobs? I have a college degree. I've looked, extensively, for nearly 15 years. They either don't exist, or they aren't hiring.

    Sure, everything sounds great if you use really low numbers! Shit like that is why kids are struggling for decades to pay off the worst decision they could have made, for a degree that's worthless, to try and get a job that doesn't exist.

    Are you a baby boomer, by chance? Or did you just get really lucky with your job and now you don't know what everyone else deals with?

    Yay, so many fantastic minimum wage jobs!

    Maybe you could just go back to college, pay insane amounts of interest in student loans, and get a degree that you can't use... and then work a mimimn wage job! Don't forget to be grateful for the opportunity, and don't expect a full 40 hours because the company doesn't want to pay benefits or insurance or vacation.

    [–] Father kills son to marry daughter-in-law JasontheFuzz 167 points ago in nottheonion

    Don't just skip over this part!

    his nephew Gurcharan Singh woke up and saw blood stains in the house. Realising that Chhota has killed Rajwinder, he caught him and handed over to the police,” police said.

    The nephew sees a murder took place, so does he call the cops? Nope. He catches the guy himself and drags his ass down to the police station!

    [–] [Request] What results in less money being “thrown away,” apartment or house? JasontheFuzz 1 points ago in theydidthemath

    And what about after three years?

    The money you pay towards your house can start going towards your next house too. We would need to know a lot more about the specifics of your interest rate, the exact price, and so on to determine if you'll end up spending more in interest than you would if you just waited a year.

    I'm afraid I'm still not the person to ask, so I'd suggest talking to a banker and have them show you the math there.

    you are free to go work elsewhere

    You are free to quit at any time, but you have to accept the reality that you could be without a paycheck for a very long time because of the current state of the economy.

    FTFY

    [–] Government officials have no idea how to regulate the growing sex robot industry JasontheFuzz 1 points ago in Futurology

    It's inherently difficult to legislate morality, for a good reason. One person might have no homicidal tendencies but might also get off on slapping around a sex doll. To them, a doll to beat up is a good thing. To somebody else, that person has issues and needs counseling, not freedom to enact on these desires. Who is right? Hard to say.

    [–] Do gases heat up when they contract? If so, theoretically, in a vacuum, would repeated equal contractions and expansions result in a net heat loss or not? JasontheFuzz 1 points ago in askscience

    Looks right to me. To add to it a bit, even if the gas was able to expand and compress without losing any energy (it won't), the process or machine that compresses it will put off some measure of heat and that will heat the surroundings up too.

    [–] Government officials have no idea how to regulate the growing sex robot industry JasontheFuzz 1 points ago in Futurology

    It should be easy. Keep what you do in the bedroom, in the bedroom, and only do it with consenting adults. But reality has an annoying way of being more complicated than that. Somebody eventually will practice evicerating a sex doll, and then they will use that technique on a real person. Is that enough reason to ban sex dolls? Of course not! But can we ban sex dolls made exclusively for the purpose of torture? We can. Should we? Maybe somebody with a desire to torture real people will get their rocks off on a doll and will be satisfied with that, and somebody will get to live instead.

    There's a lot of what ifs to consider, and there's a lot of fears to be assuaged. Lots of super religious people who think Jesus doesn't want you to have sex ever so these dolls are a sin, and politicians have to consider their opinions too, because their vote counts the same as yours. Add on to that, the fact that politicians are stupid and suddenly we have a complicated issue that will take years to be legislated, and that will spawn debates for decades to come.

    To play devil's advocate, what if people want to make torture sex dolls? Is that okay? Maybe, maybe not. What about child-sized sex dolls? (Those exist right now, by the way.)

    It's one thing to regulate vanilla sex dolls, but the iceberg tier analogy that represents sexual deviancy gets dark, quickly. (Torture porn and child porn are level three. There are six levels.) Should we allow people to create and buy realistic sex dolls to mutilate them? "Better a doll than a real person" you might say, until you find out that somebody practiced on a doll and then graduated to actual humans.

    Again, this is just me being the devil's advocate, but people are into some really fucked up stuff. Allowing them to enact and normalize these fantasies without risk of consequence has a potential to backfire.

    But that's all very unlikely- what happens if sex doll manufacturers make dolls out of toxic materials? Or if they become fire hazards? Should they be kept out of sight of children, or allowed in public?

    It all needs to be considered.

    A TL;DR should be shorter than the post. For example:

    [–] ELI5: Why do one wave our hands when falling long distances? JasontheFuzz 1 points ago in explainlikeimfive

    Alas, the mods have struck again.

    There's no reason to delete a post because somebody was smart and succinct enough to explain an answer in a few lines. Not everything needs to be a thesis.

    "What's 2+2?"

    It's 4. No explanation needed. Arguably, the explanation makes the answer less helpful. "Well, you see back in ancient history, the concept of numbers were invented by..." It's pointless. When you fall, you wiggle your hands around to stabilize your fall. The end.

    [–] TIL that the assertion that Pope Gregory inadvertently caused the Black Plague by calling for the killing of cats which were controlling the rat population, is almost completely false. JasontheFuzz 0 points ago in todayilearned

    A generic link to a subreddit is not specific evidence.

    You're whining about a lack of specificity, but your only complaints are incredibly generic or about extremely ancient wars. If you're upset about specific pedophiles who have been kicked out and had charges pressed against them, then by all means, get upset. The vast majority of religious people are upset too. That's why these sick fucks are getting kicked out and arrested. That's why we're making rules to prevent it from happening again. If you know of any specific pedophiles who have not yet been named, by all means share their names so we can prosecute them too.

    But if you just want to say "I don't like religion because history" and you don't understand why that's a laughably pathetic lack of a true argument, then congrats, you have achieved the level of depth that an angsty 14 year old kid has, and I again refer you to /r/im14andthisisdeep.

    [–] ELI5: Why do one wave our hands when falling long distances? JasontheFuzz 1 points ago in explainlikeimfive

    I tried adding extra text to an answer that didn't need anything more than what I'd put. Somebody asked what was happening to tires that made them go bald. I said the tires were wearing away- you could see the proof in the black marks on roads.

    The auto mod flagged my post, so I literally just added "this is extra text that is unnecessary but the auto mod demanded it anyway." Some human mod got all pissy and threatened to ban me if I "ever tried that again."

    [–] [Request] How big would this guy's wings have to be? JasontheFuzz 2 points ago in theydidthemath

    Yep. TL;DR is "You can't fly, but with hang glider shaped wings, you can glide."

    [–] [Request] What results in less money being “thrown away,” apartment or house? JasontheFuzz 1 points ago in theydidthemath

    In the end?

    You don't need to do any math to know that if you pay for something every month for the rest of your life, that you will be paying more than if you pay for something for only 15 or 30 years, and then you stop paying for it because you own it.

    Get the house.

    What will hurt worse, you bluntly telling him you're not interested now, or you allowing this to continue for a few more weeks/months/years before he finally gets the hint?

    Rejection sucks. We all deal with it. You're not responsible for his mental health. End it.
