    [–] TIL that if a pregnant woman has organ damage, the baby in her womb sends stem cells to help repair the organ. Metalbass5 4 points ago in todayilearned

    MG Rising's plot was incredibly coherent by MGS standards

    That was easily the most shocking aspect of that game.

    When the plot started to come together I remember thinking "It can't be that simple."

    Then I remembered that it wasn't a Kojima game.

    Eh; that's fine, but not an excuse. Respect and basic civility are not recent inventions.

    If anything that experience lends credence to the assumptiom that he's a bit racist, and internally angry that the British were losing colonies.

    I mean really; we can excuse anything if we use the "different time" excuse. That's the same crap people use to justify the positions of racist/sexist holdouts that refuse to accept their own obsolescence.

    Likely not. The robots are doing that.

    Seriously though: The manufacturing robots are almost certainly manufactured in Asia, along with most of the pneumatic/industrial tools.

    There's also the circuit boards and electronics. When it comes to tools there's only a few countries that come up regularly, and a huge portion of pre-assembly parts are made in China.

    You get the idea.

    Edit: Also the parent companies of those brands own a LOT of different subsidiaries. It's actually pretty astounding how concentrated tool manufacture is outside of rare specialty tools.

    Imagine you've just opened the window. You climb in. Before you can grab the TV the lights all go out. From the corner of the living room you hear "Vacuum On"

    "Oh. A roomba." you think, as it quietly buzzes around, bumping into chair legs.

    Then you see it: Atop this tiny suction automaton sits 1.5lbs of plastic explosive, ball bearings, and tool steel, marked with an ominous "Front Toward Enemy".

    "Am I the enemy?" You're sure that you must be, but before you can run; you hear it close in, brushes whirring, light blinking innocently.

    "Vacuum Off"

    The living room erupts into a cloud of metallic death. Glass explodes. Ear drums burst. Steel ball bearings shred everything in sight.

    As the light fades you hear your last earthly sound:

    "Spill Detected. Vacuum On."

    This is a highly underrated comment.

    That's how they get their "angle". Now that she's been told to stop, and presumably hassled by her handlers, she can make wild accusations about the harsh nature of their treatment, the government, etc., using that footage as "proof".

    A lot of truth gets left on the cutting room floor...

    Sure; it wasn't up to code, but calling it "filth" and constantly proclaiming your hatred for the place out loud is a good way to get run out.

    I wouldn't walk into someone elses house and loudly proclaim "Wow, your house is disgusting! Shame on you for living here! You sicken me!" etc., etc. Nor would I openly imply that the residents are criminals or low-lifes.

    You can hear it when he asks about crime in comparison to the rest of HK. He asks the same question multiple times, refusing to accept that the crime had been curtailed until his guide (with an agitated tone) points out that the crime rate is lower than that of the surrounding HK streets. The guy really wants a reason to openly hate these people, and seems genuinely angry when the westerners he interviews recount their positive experiences and feelings of community/responsibility. It's like he just can't believe there's any humanity there.

    The courtyard scene is also telling. His disgust goes beyond the physical state of the place.

    [–] 1950s economy class looked more like business class does now. Metalbass5 0 points ago * (lasted edited 4 hours ago) in OldSchoolCool

    5.75/gram for premium stuff with my hookup (yes; it's good cannabis. 10+ years of smoking and I know good bud when I get it). 7-12 from my medical supplier for equivalent.

    30-40/gram for shatter from my hookup.

    THC products aren't expensive in my city.

    Edit: Y'all need new hookups. Unless you're in a rural area. In that case; I'm sorry.

    [–] 1950s economy class looked more like business class does now. Metalbass5 2 points ago in OldSchoolCool

    The dispensaries are really only selling to two types of people:

    -People who are new to THC/cannabis.

    -People who do not have a hookup or are travelling.

    They really are a ripoff.

    Yeah no one with any real experience buys from the dispensaries. They're crap. I pay 5.75/gram for premium flower and 30-40/gram for shatter/wax.

    Also have a prescription supplier, but my hookup generally has bud that is equivalent or better.

    Lol!

    Makita: Japanese

    OLFA: Japanese

    Ridgid: Owned by Hitachi, Japanese

    I could go on, but I think it's obvious that guy is an idiot.

    Also chopsticks are tools...

    Except maple syrup and weed. Those are ours. Fuck off.

    Edit: Ok, yes; our dispensaries are overpriced as fuck. That's why most regular users don't buy from them. I pay $40 for 1/4 oz of awesome bud, 120 for 1 oz. It's cheap in this city.

    The core tenet of christianity is spreading christianity. The belief that you are correct, and everyone else is a lowly sinner to be converted is inherently condescending, bigoted, and toxic.

    Most religions are predicated on the belief that believers are above non-believers for having made the "correct" choice, etc.

    The entire point of organized religion is religious homogeneity, most often achieved by villainizing or victimizing non-believers in the eyes of and through indoctrinated converts.

    "Those guys are wrong and scum and going to <insert bad place>, join us because we are superior and correct." - Organized religion in a nutshell.
