    My mom was in a long term care facility when she passed away, after 2 years of being stuck in the hospital. I hated visiting because, while my mom was mostly mentally stable(her failings were mostly physical, but substance abuse was a factor), some of the other patients were substantially less so. The fact we knew this place... this house of madness... was where she was likely to spend her last days really gutted me.

    This post just flooded me with all the worst memories of the last 3 years. She passed away in February, only 2 months after she was placed in long term care. Seeing her in her last moments, after her kidneys failed, flailing with utter abandon and wrenched in agony, strapped down because she was lashing her arms and legs into the bed frame, unable to form words due to the overwhelming pain of her organs shutting down while waiting for the pain killers to kick in... I will never be able to shake that image from my brain. Her howls of suffering still haunt my sleep. Knowing this is a common thing for these nurses and doctors is a life that is entirely unfathomable to me.

    If I ever get to that point, I'd rather throw myself from a roof than live in that kind of existence. I never want to put someone I love, be they my children, wife, or siblings, through that kind of experience.

    They go to sleep, like me. Then they wake up, like me. Usually with a boner. I call it the bat signal!

    I'm not saying pay burger flippers engineering pay. At no point did I imply that. I'm saying if you work 40 hours a week at a job, ANY job, you shouldn't be 10k below the goddamn poverty line. Honest work should mean you can afford groceries and rent without food stamps keeping you (barely) afloat.

    My brother is mentally handicapped. The best job he could likely hope for is something like a bagging job at a grocery store. As it stands, he collects $1400 a month in government cash, but if he works AT ALL, he loses all funding. How does he survive? What about people who've been crippled? Could YOU make $1400 stretch an entire month? And that's in Canadian moose-bucks, not the more valuable freedom dollars.

    If we can pay a bunch of white guys copious amounts of money to make left turns and go vroom in Nascar, why the fuck shouldn't we at least see justification in paying the folks cooking our food enough money that they can afford rent?

    Someone needs to work the job. At least make it a livable wage, like minimum wage was SUPPOSED TO BE THE WHOLE FUCKING TIME.

    Plus, I'm pretty sure the staff at places like Walmart and Burger King deal with way more shit than deserved because mouthbreathing shit stains consider low-wage workers sub-human out of bloated levels of self-importance and superiority complexes.

    I worked retail a long time, and started with a fast food job in high school. I busted my ass, day in, day out, and it wasn't "incredibly easy" having a high strung manager screaming at you every day because it took longer than the company mandated 11 seconds to finish making a $75 order. It wasn't easy having a cracked out junkie threaten me with a used needle over a pack of rice cakes and $5 in wings, or having a meth head spitefully try to bleed on me in an attempt to give me Hep C because I told him to stop smoking meth in our lobby.

    In my years of retail, I have been verbally and physically assaulted more times than I can count, from management AND "customers". I finally caught an opportunity to hop into a new industry, after years of being hamstrung by barely being able to stay afloat(paid too little to live, too much to leave, plus the job market in Alberta kinda completely crashed with oil prices years ago), and I have to say that the stress of being in retail is utterly suffocating. You could triple the wage and it still wouldn't be enough to justify the shit I, and millions of others, have dealt with and continue to suffer with.

    We honestly do not pay people enough to work in these shit holes. If you do honest hard work, you deserve honest fair pay, regardless of what entitled dick whistles like you think.

    I agree 100%. I've worked crazy hours every day since release(personal trainer, so a lot of 12 hour days spattered in there). Literally have my tickets to see the movie Monday, and I somehow made it this far without any spoilers.

    Until now, anyways.

    Bah.

    I saw pink for the longest time. Put my phone down, played some MK11, phone alert went off, and when reddit opened back up it was gray with green trim.

    My brain hurts.

    [–] Our old pal ReportsDontWork is back in action, still up to his old tricks yedi001 7 points ago in apexlegends

    No, his hitbox is actually broken. There are videos of people hitting him, center mass, sparks fly(showing he got hit), metal "kthunk" bullet impact sound effect plays(sounding out he got hit), but 0 damage registers(so he didn't get hit).

    They're not aiming at his lanky legs or swively arms. They're hitting him square in the smiley face and it doesn't register the damage. EVERYTHING ELSE happens, but no damage.

    [–] I think I just found the best hollow trunk yedi001 3 points ago in outwardgame

    Not sure if it affects each person differently, but my game is hot garbo. Half of the textures are below PSone level quality. Like, literally half of the faces in the creation menu are a blurry mess. If I pick up clothes, it's a coin flip whether the clothes will have a texture or not. Indie or not, it looks BROKEN. Underneath it is a fantastic game I've been chomping at the bit wanting to play, but here we are several weeks out and I can't get more than 10 minutes into playing without something showing up that makes me just put the controller down and walk away.

    Textures that work are fine(not exceptional, but they're fine), but a lot of them don't render properly and I'm stuck looking at clothes, gear, environments and people who look like a jumbled mess. When NPCs have texture quality of a reposted gif from 1998, it's jarring.

    Each patch I load it up hoping it'll be fixed and look beautiful, and each time I've been disappointed... Like, how did NO ONE catch this in testing? Literally the DEFAULT FACE(for me anyways)is a blurry mannequin head. It's been a month and I still don't know what the default character is supposed to look like.
