    [–] LAOP is 17 Years old with a pregnant 16 year old girlfriend. Bonus does not understand why he should delete the nudes spacelincoln 1 points ago in bestoflegaladvice

    That’s reminds me a bit of my dad- worked at DEC in the early 80s, had a commemorative processor in acrylic that he helped design and went into the space shuttle.

    I still remember him telling me that once I put something on the internet, it is on there forever.

    I also remember when I was in 4th grade, a kid gave me a “cheat code” for sim city that was something like “Porn 4356” as a prank. I didn’t know what that was, so imagine me trying to explain why I had “porn” written on a post-it next to the family computer.

    [–] my money!! spacelincoln 3 points ago in Wellthatsucks

    Nobody likes it, but some of us recognize that we are paying for essential services and programs that benefit society or the economy as a whole. The human genome project cost a couple of billion that we all helped pay for (except for Trump and other tax cheats). That project however, started a industry that is 10-20 times larger than that start up cost (per year), and is going to cure cancer and provide personalized medicine.

    I’d take it one further- they are so comfortable with the tech that they don’t take safety and security seriously. It’s like saying “it’s ok to touch the stove, I eat all the time”

    [–] Recoil spacelincoln 9 points ago in IdiotsFightingThings

    During college, I worked summer help for a roads and parks department. They were switching buildings and needed a big part of the building gutted. They handed two 19 year olds sledgehammers and crowbars and said “have fun.”

    We did.

    [–] This shouldn't have been deleted spacelincoln 66 points ago * (lasted edited 19 hours ago) in marvelstudios

    To play devils advocate, I could see the argument that he was at the end of his rope and after being callous towards Pangborn and then seeing him recover gave him a small spark of compassion. In this scene you see him look at and then ignore the dog (his typical MO) and then kinda go, “goddamn it, I should help. I missed something once before”. By that change, he is admitted to something bigger since Mordo saw it. It is directly callous-> no reward, help-> be rewarded. Still very selfish, but we all start there and some people learn to be selfless for the sake of helping or doing good, which is where Strange ends up at the end of the movie.

    [–] Where, when and why did we decide that gold, silver and diamonds were so valuable? spacelincoln 3 points ago in AskHistory

    It’s also very easy to determine the purity of gold, just rub it on a touchstone (once you see it, Touchstone Pictures’ logo makes total sense). Natural counterfeit-countermeasure, so it’s a good starting point for cash.

    [–] Finally! spacelincoln 3 points ago in marvelmemes

    We all know who’s movie will come first.

    Mine?

    “Oh yes of course”

    A valuable addition to the conversation.

    Alternatively, might I suggest being less rude?

    You’re struggling with a very common problem, which is guys not feeling like they are allowed to show emotion and guys basically being expected to do all that you do.

    For years it was very hard to talk to my father about anything but work and business. It takes effort, but he never said anything. I realized this one day when he asked what I was doing that weekend. I told him that I was just planning on relaxing and didn’t have any real plans. He asked again a few minutes later and sounded defeated. He is someone who isn’t comfortable sharing, and it was clear he wanted me to come over, but didn’t feel like he was allowed to ask. Have you told them you’re lonely or feel left out or under appreciated?

    Either way, you have my sympathy and I hope you find some emotional validation.

    [–] Germany introducing mandatory measles vaccination for kids spacelincoln 0 points ago in worldnews

    I don't understand how someone who is generally smart will not listen to reason.

    It’s been my experience that engineers for whatever reason are weirdly susceptible to believing the most insane right-wing horseshit conspiracy theories.

    [–] Taika Waititi to Direct 'Thor 4' spacelincoln 1 points ago in marvelstudios

    You don’t have a right to a “serious conversation”, especially when it begins with attacking me.

    This is what something meant to me, this is what works for me, this is what helps me improve, and I’m not going to take shit from some Jordan Petersen acolyte. I do not care about your perspective or your specious arguments. Kindly get fucked. There is no argument for you here.

    Piece of advice- take yourself less seriously. You’ve got an awfully high opinion of yourself.

    [–] Taika Waititi to Direct 'Thor 4' spacelincoln 1 points ago in marvelstudios

    Do you just go around and look for opportunities to be a dick? If you read my post without your agenda, what I clearly said was it is about improving myself on my terms.

    Even if I wasn’t, like fuck am I going to take advice from someone who masturbates to anime.

    [–] Someone didn’t do their research spacelincoln 9 points ago in insanepeoplefacebook

    There’s that line from The Office about wishing you knew you were in the good old times while you were still in them.

    Guys- stop being dicks to each other now and in 50 years we won’t have to shamefacedly put someone’s face on a stamp in a feeble attempt to make it “right”. Turing lived and died in pain, and this gesture absolves none of that.

    There’s so much worse about a kid crying if the reason is they are upset with something they messed up.

    [–] AITA for taking over a meeting being run by someone else? spacelincoln -2 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    Work in engineering, but much fewer PhDs. You have my sympathies, I worked in academia for years, they are insufferable. It may just be that- I don’t work with nearly as many PhDs anymore. In my experience, if someone isn’t telling them how wonderful they are, then they get pouty.

    I’ve been pretty successful with my approach. I have no issues getting support when I need it, and the feedback I get is helpful. Like I said, you can do this if you can do it without being a dick.

    [–] AITA for taking over a meeting being run by someone else? spacelincoln -15 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    Look, maybe handholding works well for you. I’ve never had an issue with my approach. You can do this without being a dick. I think that’s what people are missing. Being firm isn’t being an asshole.

    If he doesn’t recognize the value of what you’re doing and think real work is lawn care, I’d be a little worried at how well he is going to run the business.

    [–] AITA for taking over a meeting being run by someone else? spacelincoln 1 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    Don’t worry about delivery. A lot of people are talking about “oh you should’ve done it a different time or a different way” clearly haven’t worked in an office.

    Meetings tie up a lot of money. Look at how many people are in the room, and they are all getting paid and if you’re wasting time, you’re wasting money. Feelings do fuck-all for the bottom line.

    If someone can’t run their meeting, then you absolutely should. Or walk out when the time is up. I’ve done both.
