    [–] The YouTube Rewind we all deserve. xavierwest888 2 points ago in videos

    It's supposed to be about youtubers and not 'general nerd culture' events, as those events weren't really related to any specific youtubers and no special videos other than the 'these are terrible games because...' were made I would disagree with you.

    [–] Cashier-less checkout for your lunch. xavierwest888 2 points ago in gifs

    Not all of them, rural people sure, people working office style jobs in cities like these people, probably a lot closer to Western wages.

    [–] Is it possible to physically show someone a vaccine working? xavierwest888 1 points ago in AskScienceDiscussion

    I mean it was clearly a joke although it is also a true answer, not getting a disease is physical evidence for not getting a disease so it still answers the question.

    It's pedantic, sure, but it's technically true.

    [–] Drinking alcohol puts shy people at risk of suffering "hangxiety" the next day, study says xavierwest888 2 points ago in science

    Thank you! Some other guy is giving me grief that their data is 'good for social science' so I was wondering if we were losing it. Glad to see that there are others who understand reasonable data correlation.

    [–] Drinking alcohol puts shy people at risk of suffering "hangxiety" the next day, study says xavierwest888 0 points ago in science

    Well the surrounding physical sciences researches had a right good laugh at the mess of data and are considering changing careers into something that can generate a papers worth of "data" in an afternoon...Oh I'm sorry, it took like 5 whole days....

    [–] Drinking alcohol puts shy people at risk of suffering "hangxiety" the next day, study says xavierwest888 3 points ago in science

    I...I don't know if you're being sarcastic or not. If you remove the line and asked someone to plot a best fit I can imagine that most people would not draw anything even close to that.

    [–] Drinking alcohol puts shy people at risk of suffering "hangxiety" the next day, study says xavierwest888 1 points ago in science

    Yes they did and those values are TERRIBLE, they are no better than just a random number generator putting random data points onto a graph.

    You would NEVER get a publication in the physical sciences with a correlation that weak / non-existent.

    [–] It may not be the newest but I was finally able to afford super smash bros and a gamecube for my son! xavierwest888 5 points ago in gaming

    Well...he had a child he clearly can't afford so I'm going to go ahead and say that he needs to prioritise his financial decisions.

    No this is reddit we have to give him plenty of applause and congratulations for providing an old games console when he seems to live in, quite honestly, a shit hole.

    I was looking at the small thumbnail, I made a mistake, I'm not doing the full diagnosis of this guys crack house for the historical archives.

    [–] This one goes to 90% of high school girls xavierwest888 2 points ago in memes

    They are probably rare because you're a very horrible person and they don't want to spend any extended time with you.

    [–] Drinking alcohol puts shy people at risk of suffering "hangxiety" the next day, study says xavierwest888 -21 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago) in science

    As an engineer and chemical researcher God the social sciences are easy...

    Edit: I mean come on, shy people regret stuff more the next day then non-shy people? It's really not exactly difficult stuff.

    Edit2: Okay so I actually went and read the paper that the article is talking about, in short the article surveyed only a tiny 97 people over a couple of days and made them fill in an anxiety questionnaire so nothing scientific here. The best part was the results are plotted on a graph with a positive correlation line drawn through it that is basically just a complete lie, there is ZERO correlation in that data, the entire report should be ashamed to publish such a pathetic methodology and results.

    [–] Thermochromic Star Trek mug xavierwest888 5 points ago in funny

    Several week old account with two posts both about this mug to different subreddits and one random comment AND a second new account with zero activity commenting that they want one and found the link to the product, damn right it's spam time!

    [–] Thermochromic Star Trek mug xavierwest888 1 points ago in funny

    One comment, link to this product, account is 11 days old, scam account, try much harder next time please.

    I mean he has an upside down coke craft for the router, the tv is on the floor and that's a super cheap chair, there's actually a chance he doesn't own a proper bed.

    [–] I'm Dr Helen Webberley, gender specialist. I have been in the UK media a lot over my work with trans patients and I'm here to separate fact from fiction - AMA! xavierwest888 2 points ago in IAmA

    It's certainly an interesting debate to be had.

    What annoys me with the OP of this post is that they are really hurting their cause by NOT talking about it. I read through her comments and even asked my own question and she's not answering any of the hard questions at all. Someone asked if anyone has ever regretted their transition and she completely sidesteps the question with 'well maybe they didn't like the final surgery' or 'maybe there was social pressure'.

    Yes, or maybe they realised that they had mutilated their genitals with surgery and want them back, I'm not saying everyone feels that but I'm certain at least a few have changed their minds on the matter. The fact that OP won't admit common sense facts like this and is either super defensive, reflective, or evasive is disappointing.

    I honestly feel that it's people like this that do so much harm to trans people.
