    [–] Which subreddit has moved the farthest from its intended purpose and how? Popopopper123 1 points ago in AskReddit

    /r/surrealmemes has turned into just memes with those weird heads and oranges on v a p o r w a v e backgrounds

    /r/comedyheaven went from things that are meant to be funny, but are so bad they're good to things that aren't necessarily meant to be funny but they're so stupid that they're funny

    [–] people who donate a lot of money to streamers, whats your job? why are you so generous? Popopopper123 2 points ago in AskReddit

    Certain university employees make a lot of money in the US. Depending on the school, presidents can make hundreds of thousands of dollars on the low/average end to upwards of $2 million, and football coaches can make even more than that. Nick Saban (head football coach at the University of Alabama) makes over $8 million a year.

    [–] US News 2020 Rankings Released Popopopper123 3 points ago in ApplyingToCollege

    And it clearly is the case. The ties go:

    Columbia -> MIT ->Yale

    Stanford -> University of Chicago -> University of Pennsylvania

    University of California, Berkeley -> University of Southern California

    Georgia Tech -> NYU

    [–] US News 2020 Rankings Released Popopopper123 3 points ago in ApplyingToCollege

    They both start with "University of", so "Chicago" comes before "Pennsylvania"

    Lmao no when they're tied they're arranged alphabetically. S comes before U and C comes before P so that's why they're ordered that way

    Sorry but I only consider colleges with endowments of $1 billion or more

    [–] In case you weren't actually sure that Taeko's team was utterly incompetent: Popopopper123 1 points ago in DestinyTheGame

    You know the funny thing is that the whole premise behind the strike is that Taeko sacrifices herself to let us kill the final boss, but half the time when I reach the boss my team blows it up before we have to use the crystal

    [–] Google reportedly has a massive culture problem that's destroying it from the inside Popopopper123 2 points ago in technology

    That's absolutely not true. Talk to any Stanford or MIT student and they almost always come off as easygoing, modest, yet still incredibly smart.

    [–] 2018-2019 College Ranking (WSJ & Forbes Average), Top 50 Popopopper123 1 points ago in ApplyingToCollege

    UChicago only has one engineering major and most of those students are likely to go onto graduate school. And students at UChicago are still more likely to major in humanities, area studies, social science, etc. than at most other universities which, again, skews the average salary down a bit.

    [–] Texas Is Bracing for a Blue Wave in 2020. Yes, Texas. Popopopper123 18 points ago in politics

    winning elections they should have lost

    If they abolish the EC and win an election, then that's an election they should have won. Not that I think that'll happen, but abolishing the EC isn't about politics, it's about democracy. Yes it would benefit the Democrats but that's not the point.

    [–] A COLLEGE REP IS COMING TO MY CAMPUS WHAT DO I DO? Popopopper123 2 points ago in ApplyingToCollege

    Honestly I doubt it really matters. Admissions officers do dozens of these events every year and at most of them, like half the students try to do the exact same thing you're doing.

    I remember at my school, when someone from Brown visited, as soon as the AO finished his spiel, everyone immediately got up, lined up, and when it was their turn to ask a question gave a fake smile and polite handshake and a "Hi my name is [name] and I'm SUPER interested in Brown :D" and then asked a single, obviously-rehearsed question before leaving. The same happened with GATech and CMU and probably more that I forgot.

    [–] Yellow and clear pee Popopopper123 1 points ago in NoStupidQuestions

    There is a hormone called ADH which causes your kidneys to release water back into the bloodstream, leaving more concentrated urine in your bladder. Alcohol inhibits ADH, diluting your urine.

    Is this going to affect RAM prices?

    [–] ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 2 adding extra drive on website? Popopopper123 0 points ago in thinkpad

    It doesn't look like you can configure it with a second, but I'm pretty sure that it comes with 2 slots considering that the P1 gen 2 does let you configure the second slot.

    That said, why do you want it to be pre-installed with a second drive? It's not that hard to install another, and you can save a lot of money that way.

    [–] ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 2 adding extra drive on website? Popopopper123 5 points ago in thinkpad

    Don't get the SSD from Lenovo, it's ridiculously overpriced. You can buy a 1TB SSD for like $120 but on Lenovo's website it costs something like $500. Just buy one separately and install it yourself.

    [–] Are there any meaningful differences between RAM brands aside from capacity and speed? Popopopper123 1 points ago in buildapc

    What if, say, I plan on installing an 8GB stick in a laptop that already has a stick of Samsung 8GB DDR4 at 2666MHz, and I don't want to overclock it? Then does it matter what I buy as long as it's compatible?
