    [–] Salary for a Java Developer in Madrid RikerT_USS_Lolipop 1 points ago in Madrid

    Interesting...

    Can you describe the situation for someone with 3 years experience in a SQL, Excel, Analytics role?

    In the USA I used to net $40k a year and spend $1k a month on rent. Here I make €1k a month and spend €300 on rent (teaching English). But I like Spain more and want to stay. I'm wondering if the demand for someone who can write SQL is strong enough to get companies to sponsor me for immigration.

    [–] What's the equivalent of going to a White House dinner and being served McDonalds? RikerT_USS_Lolipop 12 points ago in AskReddit

    Luckily I found a man because dating was fucking horrible as a camgirl.

    Um... were you expecting it not to be? Why do you think sex workers make so much money?

    [–] James Cameron's 'Avatar 2' & 'Avatar 3' Have Finished Production, the Remaining Sequels Have Been Put on Hold Awaiting the Disney/Fox Merger and Remain Uncertain RikerT_USS_Lolipop -9 points ago in movies

    Avatar 2 has well over twice as many "Wants to see" as Avengers: Endgame.

    This just reminded me of that episode of Star Trek Voyager where the Doctor is treating a species in sick bay. They are extremely condescending to the Voyager crew and treat everyone like they are retarded, even though it is them who are intellectually mediocre. The doctor starts humming and they go crazy with interest because their culture doesn't have music. The Doctor becomes a revered musical sensation and goes on a world tour. Then in the end they find out none of the aliens understand anything. They don't recognize rhythm, or creativity, or lyrical genius, all they have been percieving is pitch. They replace him with a holographic copy that just belts out a single note for several minutes at a time.

    That's what's going on with China. They like Transformers and other horrible, shitty movies. So Hollywood keeps pumping them out to our dismay in the US. It turns out the Chinese audiences have no idea what the fuck is on screen, it's just pretty.

    [–] What is a professional way to say go fuck yourself? RikerT_USS_Lolipop 3 points ago in AskReddit

    In the last office I worked at, I had to do this with literally every single question. I would write something and email it to them. They would reply with a question that was answered in the first. I'd answer. They'd reply with a new question that was also in the original email. Several times I got exactly as many questions as sentences were in my original email. Every single thing I said in the e-mail, they asked me. I started putting more effort into limiting the word count of my emails than I was into the reports I was building. No matter how hard I tried, no one would read the fucking things.

    [–] Donald McPresident servers dinner RikerT_USS_Lolipop 0 points ago in pics

    I'm not centrist. You have to stop assuming things about people. It just causes you to project all kinds of things that aren't true.

    [–] Donald McPresident servers dinner RikerT_USS_Lolipop -3 points ago in pics

    No, your problem is assuming I like him just because I am annoyed by childish echo-chamber behavior.

    The criticisms are not fair, which is what I said, and you would recognize it if you weren't more focused on finding some excuse to bash someone you dislike.

    The real victims of war are and always have been women.

    Yea, fuck me for not understanding civics...

    [–] Donald McPresident servers dinner RikerT_USS_Lolipop -6 points ago in pics

    Yea, if it was lobster people would be bitching that he's out of touch and the redneck lower class is being conned. There is nothing he coudl be eating that wouldn't cause people who already hate him to add anothing thing to the list.

    [–] the line waiting to get through TSA security at the Atlanta airport this morning RikerT_USS_Lolipop 6 points ago in gifs

    He's not saying fire these TSA agents and hire new ones for $0 an hour. He's saying the airlines can hire their own screeners and pay them to keep planes full.

    [–] Los Angeles Teachers go on Strike for the first time in 30 Years RikerT_USS_Lolipop -2 points ago in pics

    Schools are paid for with property tax. Illegal immigrants can't get out of paying that because it's baked into the price of goods and rents.

    Also, LA has a notoriously high cost of living. I doubt there are very many illegal immigrants living there. There are shitloads of brown people who primarily speak Spanish, but that's because this is what the US looked like in 1848. It's kind of funny watching racist people walk around proclaiming all these goddamn Mexicans need to go back where they came from.

    And even regardless of all of that, the department of education doesn't care who is an illegal immigrant and who is a citizen. It's not like they don't know these people are enrolled in their schools. The population of students is right there in their records. They don't "Oops, hired too few teachers!".

    [–] Can't figure out why this Nazi guy isn't welcome in Germany. RikerT_USS_Lolipop -3 points ago * (lasted edited 2 days ago) in quityourbullshit

    Really? You read my comment and walked away thinking it says Trans people need to be silenced?

    What it says is that people who should not be silenced will be because it would be fucking retarded to think that right now, in 2019, we only hate and want to silence people who deserve it. Goddamn this place is full of some dumb mother fuckers.

    [–] Can't figure out why this Nazi guy isn't welcome in Germany. RikerT_USS_Lolipop -16 points ago in quityourbullshit

    No you idiot.

    It doesn't matter whether being transgender is right or wrong. That has nothing to do with my comment. Nor do you have any idea what my stance is on it.

    [–] McCain speaks.... RikerT_USS_Lolipop -4 points ago in PoliticalHumor

    Why should his account age matter? Address his comment if there is something wrong with it.

    And why does his comment have negative 20 karma? If your complaint is against fake news then are you also against hivemind echo chambers?

    [–] Can't figure out why this Nazi guy isn't welcome in Germany. RikerT_USS_Lolipop -5 points ago in quityourbullshit

    You lack emotional maturity. You are unable to see that this conversation isn't about Nazis. It's about the principles free speech as applied to literally any context, particularly ones that haven't happened yet.

    [–] Can't figure out why this Nazi guy isn't welcome in Germany. RikerT_USS_Lolipop -13 points ago in quityourbullshit

    With such violent ideas like fascism or white supremacism, censorship or denying Nazis a platform to speak is the only surefire way to ensure they do not rise to power and commit great evils, as slavery or genocide is the only logical end to these ideologies.

    But then you have the right saying preventing transgenders from having a platform to speak is the only surefire way to ensure they don't rise to power.

    Or whatever. Suddenly the conversation becomes about which groups it's okay to silence.

    I chose transgenders because that is the group that happens to be straddeling the razors edge right now between accepted and not accepted. 20 years ago it was gays. 40 years ago it was Communists. What group will it be 20 years in the future? And you know some group exists that we all hate right now and want to prevent from having a platform but who don't deserve it. How ridiculous would it be if right now, in January of 2019, we suddenly got it all right and weren't shitheads to some undeserving group?

    But in the wider context of the EU, one should be allowed say what they want (obviously with certain caveats like incitement of violence or threats etc).

    I think you are only willing to accept those caveats because they are normalized by the society you live in, just as Germans include Nazi talk as a caveat because everyone around them is nodding their head in agreement.

    I personally believe in true freedom of expression, no matter what.

    [–] Racial discrimination must seem really weird to blind people... RikerT_USS_Lolipop 5 points ago in Showerthoughts

    Yea, this occured to me instantly when I read the title. I bet blind people have more legitimate cause to be racist than anybody. If you are almost always surrounded by people of your own race then you don't smell them, but you will smell people of other races and it's going to be unpleasant. Being racist would be completely logical. Also, the blind use sound as their primary contact with the outside world which means people with accents will be more different for a blind person than for sighted people.

    [–] Stephen Fry's new video from his YouTube channel - "Brexit II: May and Trump vs Truth" [14:11] RikerT_USS_Lolipop 64 points ago in mealtimevideos

    If you want people to be less xenophobic it's really very easy. Flatten society. Improve economic mobility.

    Immigration is a tool used by the wealthy to distract the poor from the real issue; class.

    [–] LPT- If you ask someone out and they say that they are busy but they do not try and reschedule; that is a rejection and should be taken as one RikerT_USS_Lolipop 1 points ago in LifeProTips

    The media would have you believe that happens to every woman three times in her life. That shit is not so common as to require women to ghost every many they reject. You might as well argue that men should premptively claim rape on every woman they speak to so they don't get false rape claims thrown at them.

    [–] STFU Pauline RikerT_USS_Lolipop 1 points ago in funny

    75k/year is about 40% higher than the median household income.

    I don't know where you live that 2 acres of land and a house cost 210k, but I bet your salary is much more than 40% higher than the median household income in your area.

    [–] What 'cinema sin' is the most irritating, that filmmakers need to stop committing immediately? RikerT_USS_Lolipop 4 points ago in AskReddit

    Game of Thrones really should keep a perfectly still camera without cuts to accentuate just how slow and boring a medieval fight would be. The realism is why we're fucking watching it!
