    [–] Anyone else feel like being on-call for work ruins their free time even if they don't get called? RoboNinjaPirate 1 points ago in NoStupidQuestions

    Any job that is more desirable will pay less.

    Lots of people like working with kids. Teachers pay is lower than expected because of this.

    Lots of people like games. Gaming industry pay is lower than expected because of this.

    Want a great paying job? Go for something that is some combination of requiring specialized expertise, difficult, strenuous, dirty, dangerous or otherwise undesirable. Plumbers make a shitload of money for a reason.

    [–] Instantly put my two weeks in.. RoboNinjaPirate 1 points ago in AdviceAnimals

    Depends on what part of the tech world. I’ve been in software QA for various parts of the financial and insurance industries for over 20 years. I’ve never been in a place where overtime was consistently expected - at worst maybe a few hours extra once a month when deployments are done at night and usually you take a half day off the next day to make up for it. Same has been true for the devs, DBAs, PMs and other groups I have worked with.

    I’m sure it happens in some shops but not in the ones I have worked in.

    Or with webs like charlottes web.

    I’m not sure but I think that 8 legged chickens would ensure that there’s no more fighting over who gets the drumstick. There will be plenty to go around.

    [–] Woman with autism admitted to Florida Bar, becoming "first openly-autistic lawyer," employer says RoboNinjaPirate 1 points ago in offbeat

    There are extroverted people on the spectrum. One of my sons is a complete introvert and his lack of social skills prevents him from reaching out to others. The other son on the spectrum does not give a crap about social miscues and is very very extroverted. He’s not great in social settings but it does not slow him down socially because he’s always willing to try again and is used to the fact that public speaking will be more difficult for him.

    Tony Atwood wrote that he could sit on a bench at his college campus and play spot the Aspie. Except outside the engineering building - there it was spot the non Aspie.

    I would submit that computer science probably has just as many.

    [–] Just remember: Democrats ARE coming for your guns RoboNinjaPirate 10 points ago in NOWTTYG

    He’s not a doctrinaire conservative. There are many positions I wish he would change.

    However having a half ass conservative who fights is better than 90% of the GOP Establishment who are unwilling to fight and are also not conservatives.

    Given a choice between him and Cruz for example - sure I’d take Cruz any day. But that’s all decided long before my state ever gets to vote in the primaries.

    I voted for trump as the least bad choice the first time around. Next time I’ll be voting for him because he got shit done. Not everything I wanted but far more than I expected.

    [–] We're official! RoboNinjaPirate 3 points ago in BSA

    If at all possible, have scouting skills instruction, etc done by another scout - possibly a volunteer from an existing boys troop.

    Soon enough your scouts will have the experience to do this themselves, but it’s better for it to come from a youth than an adult - even if it’s a youth in a different troop.

    [–] [Serious] History is full of well-documented human atrocities, but what are the stories about when large groups of people or societies did incredibly nice things? RoboNinjaPirate -20 points ago in AskReddit

    They broke no US laws, but they were accused of breaking Indian and Madagascar laws. Indian and Madagascar officials said no laws were broken.

    Gibson’s real crime? The CEO was a major donor to republicans, and a democrat administration decided to punish them.

    Tell them the norks funded rose art crayons.

    [–] Americans of Reddit: Do you realize how badly your nation has been played by Russia? RoboNinjaPirate 4 points ago in AskReddit

    Well, they certainly played the media.

    If you want to make americans mistrust the result of elections, you need to get the media talking about how russia rigged the elections.

    [–] Bernie announced his candidacy for 2020 RoboNinjaPirate 2 points ago in AdviceAnimals

    As Bernie's patron saint Stalin said:

    "I consider it completely unimportant who in the party will vote, or how; but what is extraordinarily important is this — who will count the votes, and how."

    Somewhere in the middle. How about Middle Eastern Country?
