    [–] My parents are in severe debt and want me to take out a bank loan for them. Is my solution to their problem viable? gorcorps 1 points ago in personalfinance

    I know they're your parents, but they're being wildly unreasonable. You've pretty much told them what they should do already (sell), but it's time to put the foot down.

    Tell them under no circumstances will you help pay for their current mortgage. Remind them that if they don't sell now and move somewhere cheaper, then the bank will end up taking it anyway and then they'll have nothing. Maybe that realization will be enough of a driving force for them to understand the situation they're in, and sell while they still have the ability to do so. The important thing is for them to know that getting money from you is absolutely not an option, and that they need to sell the house ASAP.

    As long as they think there's a sliver of possibility that you'll help, they won't budge. You might strain your relationship with them, but if that's what happens then frankly it's better than ruining your own finances due to their stubborn attitudes. Put the foot down... "I absolutely will not be taking out a loan to help you, you need to sell this house before the bank takes it and you're on the streets"

    [–] AITA for reporting my brother to child protective services? gorcorps 1 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    You're not the asshole for reporting, but you certainly are for hiding behind your dad about it. You're also doing nothing to help the situation yourself, you just reported it and have effectively passed the buck...

    Are you talking to your brother about what his actions are doing to his child and his family? Even if he doesn't want to hear it, you all need to be talking to him and start getting him to shape up. Sending an anonymous report and hoping things improve is the cowards way out.

    [–] Samsung Galaxy S10/S10+/S10e: What are your first impressions? Are you going to Pre-Order? gorcorps 1 points ago in galaxys10

    You know, I'm playing with my s8 and if it works well enough the power button might not be that bad. My thumb is close to that area too, and if I get in the habit of waking my phone via power button it could work out alright. It's going to make designing a case tough though, you can't cover the button

    [–] Galaxy S10 Pricing gorcorps 4 points ago in samsung

    Price, mainly.

    And at least for me, after having the s8 I don't want a curved screen again. Very nice looking, but it's the only phone I've ever owned that had managed to get a cracked screen while inside a case.

    [–] Samsung Galaxy S10/S10+/S10e: What are your first impressions? Are you going to Pre-Order? gorcorps 3 points ago in galaxys10

    I was really leaning towards the s10e, but finger print scanner on the power button sounds like an awful place for it. If they weren't going to include the new tech, they should have kept the sensor on the back.

    Now I don't know what to do...I really don't want a curved screen again

    [–] T-mo shows free Galaxy Buds when you pre-order S10/S10+ gorcorps 1 points ago in galaxys10

    IIRC, if you preorder from Samsung directly you don't even need the device in hand to claim the offer. That's what happened with the s8, all of the free headphones were claimed people who ordered from Samsung before the people who ordered through carriers could pick theirs up. People (including me) were so pissed

    [–] S10 vs S10+ gorcorps -1 points ago in galaxys10

    The differences in cameras are not minor. The s8 and s8+ were the same aside from screen and battery size. The s9 fucked things up by not keeping the cameras the same, and the s10 did the same thing again.

    sigh why do they make it so hard to get all of the top features without a phablet sized phone

    [–] T-mo shows free Galaxy Buds when you pre-order S10/S10+ gorcorps 1 points ago in galaxys10

    If it's anything like the free headphone offer for the s8, supply was so limited that they didn't even have enough for the people that had pre-ordered and picked the phone up the day it was released.

    I wouldn't bank in this, if it's a deciding factor for anyone

    [–] Can I trust jeep? gorcorps -1 points ago in whatcarshouldIbuy

    Short answer? No

    Long answer? Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

    [–] Steve Carell is aging incredibly well. gorcorps 2 points ago in DunderMifflin

    I mean I don't think he looks much different now, but isn't this picture from a while ago?

    [–] A Friends shitty robot gorcorps 12 points ago in shittyrobots

    Why not? Part of the contest is coming up with the most reliable/efficient way of completing those laps, and it's clear that this way was NOT the way to do it based on how it turned out.

    [–] Interactive joke gorcorps 1 points ago in Jokes

    And what's the out for when this person says nothing about the 4th story and just waits for the punchline?

    [–] I want to acknowledge you guys while driving gorcorps 3 points ago in Hyundai

    The Jeep wave is when you hold up your most recent recall notice in the air when you see another Jeep driver, right?

    I thought all the free services had limitations like this (Pandora has for years). I'm not sure what switching services would do

    [–] The boys would *never* say that. gorcorps 29 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    I'm not a software dev but I say stuff like this all the time. If I'm trying to talk to somebody about something outside of my wheelhouse, I usually start with "I'm just a dumb metallurgist, but..."

    [–] Bernie Sanders Enters 2020 Presidential Campaign, No Longer An Underdog gorcorps 1 points ago in SandersForPresident

    Please keep in mind that whatever Democratic candidate gets the nod will need to be able to sway enough of the swing states away from voting Trump again. If dethroning Trump is the ultimate goal, somebody who appeals to those groups will be needed. It might be Bernie, it might not, but it's something that needs to be kept in mind if you truly don't want a second term.

    [–] They are both confused gorcorps 3 points ago in funny

    We have microchips too, but you can't tell from a microchip if the dog is protected from rabies or not. That's the only requirement where I live (rabies tag), the others are just for convenience.

    [–] This device stitches you up without the need of stitches gorcorps 1 points ago in interestingasfuck

    "surgical quality wound closure device"

    It's a sticker and tiny zip ties, let's not get ahead of ourselves here. It also doesn't really look like it closes the wound as well as proper stitches, but it's probably a good idea for a first aid kit to get a jump start on the process before getting to the ER for proper care.
