    [–] What is the most underrated film of all time? hobbit6 3 points ago in AskReddit

    I liked a lot of things about this movie, but this is one of my favorite Robin Williams performances. After spending the 90s doing all those awful family movies, he gets to be vulgar 80's Robin and it's fantastic. Even Jon Stewart, who famously can't act, is funny.

    [–] SCENE: Do you feel in charge? hobbit6 1 points ago in DC_Cinematic

    I think what makes it most interesting is that Nolan is known for not giving his actors a lot of leeway. His scripts are gospel. So that fact that he used this take really says something what Hardy brought to it. A C T I N G

    I think capitalist society has something to learn from the Fraggles, tbh

    [–] Abolish ICE hobbit6 37 points ago in Anarchism

    It says "carelessly" but knowing DHS and ICE, I would not be at all surprised if children were intentionally trafficked.

    Hey kid. wanna buy some shapes?

    [–] Kids gotta learn at some point hobbit6 2 points ago in daddit

    Yeah, when you get into enterprise sales, the numbers are ridiculous. We make most of our money not on the devices but on value-added services on top of the software that runs them. Our customers are usually bank call centers. I'm a coder working on unrelated products, but my understanding is that they pay us a fee, and we provide all the hardware (which we buy wholesale, lease out as parts of our contracts, and then sell at a loss when they get replaced and write-off the deprecation).

    My company is a polycom reseller and we definitely need these to lock children into our pipeline.

    [–] Virgil is the face of a new real estate development hobbit6 1 points ago in ChapoTrapHouse

    Patreon tells you how much they make a month, and that sounds right. It was like 87ish when I subscribed.

    [–] This is something I could see happening in a Stephenson novel. hobbit6 3 points ago in Cyberpunk

    Yeah, it's still hella expensive. I think an arm including the elbow like that one is well over 100K, but she goes to TED and SXSW to get investors and entrepreneurs to bring those prices down. So, I mean, yeah, she's in a position of privilege too, but I think the point of her post wasn't to complain about people not giving up their outlets, but rather to point out that we live in a future where arms complete with phones for power.

    I got something like this in a conference goody bag about five years ago, and it's the best con swag I'v ever gotten.

    [–] This is something I could see happening in a Stephenson novel. hobbit6 7 points ago in Cyberpunk

    That's a myoelectric prosthesis, meaning it contains motors and sensors that act on interactions with her nervous system. So if the battery dies, then she loses function in the arm. It's a lot more than "fancy blue lights."

    [–] Why every father should bring his toddler out for a mini adventure. hobbit6 3 points ago in daddit

    That "mini adventure" is a full-scale expedition (I guess being a mountaineer changes his perspective), but I support it.

    [–] This is something I could see happening in a Stephenson novel. hobbit6 1 points ago in Cyberpunk

    I was thinking about that. I'd install QI pads in my chairs so that it would charge when I'm lounging.

    I blame Richard Branson for adding a Virgin route from SFO.

    [–] This is something I could see happening in a Stephenson novel. hobbit6 6 points ago in Cyberpunk

    I get that being snarky about a pun isn't going to go over well on reddit. I was just replying to the whoosh.

    [–] This is something I could see happening in a Stephenson novel. hobbit6 -108 points ago in Cyberpunk

    I got the joke. I wasn't acknowledging the pun because I don't like to encourage the behavior.
