  1. The latest couple of Infinity Train episodes were super great! I am astounded by how good they were. The series as a whole gives me strong "Over The Garden Wall" vibes.

  5. Yesterday I helped moving my friends. The whole moving operation hinged on me because I am the only one with enough driving experience to drive a transporter. Also the whole thing was done until midnight. And now I have yet one of those days where I had only 4 hours of sleep.

  8. @scribus I wanna say "Bathos" but that fits so well for the KKK only if it were fiction.

    Also it would not really answer your question.

  13. Crazy, but that's how it goes
    Millions of people living as foes
    Maybe it's not too late
    To learn how to love and forget how to hate
    Mental wounds not healing
    Life's a bitter shame

  15. @scribus ... No ? Because I am pretty sure that everyone, even if they do not see eye to eye on the definition, that the situation is quite Potato Knishesty and thus undesirable.

    I was mostly talking bout some IRL thing just now. "Name a movie or series that despite having a Mary Sue were good" 'Ehmm, ohkay, Star Trek The Next Generation, mostly the episodes without Wesley' and then we got into a load of BS regarding how words can only mean what is in the dictionary because Wesley is not a woman. Then we fell down the rabbit hole of what it means to make a new word or where slang comes from, whether it is legitimized as soon as it is on UD or some form thereof. Which led to whose definition we use. Pluto was mentioned, drifted off into whether we should or should not use caution around the Cancer word and whether that would be objectively or subjectively a good thing.

    And at the end I hear the words "Well... I disagree with virtually everything you said, but I do not think you are insane" o_0

  16. Option 1 : Do nothing

    Option 2 : Go check ALL of your luggage to see where the speakers went even though it is HOT as HELL and... .. . .. ... Who am I kidding we all know it is going to be option 2. I need my tunes.

  17. Soo. I just want to rant about 'objectivity' vs 'subjectivity'. They are not polar opposites, heck they might not even be opposites in some cases.

    The first is the belief that the facts support some claim, the second is the belief that your claim is backed up by feelings.

    Enter things like "Is Pluto a planet ?" "Is the Scorkl project a scam ?" "Does the FREE Electric work as advertised ?" "Does getting your lip pierced hurt ?" and then I ran out of non-politically-charged stupid questions.

    In order "Depends on if you are talking to a scientist or a space-enthusiast" "You would be crazy to expect that thing to work as advertised" "Yes but only if your house uses 10W10A in a day" and "depends on your personal pain threshold".

    If at any point someone goes "But my belief in objectivity/subjectivity is the only correct one because it is mine" then my eyes become like ping pong balls in a front loading washing machine.

    Feel free to add some other examples.

  19. @drinkingpony Thanks. Bosses/Superiors/People don't value hard and good work.

  20. @adiwan You have my sympathies. All of them.

    But hey you try explaining to your boss/superior that you could do the bare minimum to comply with what he wants versus doing what is needed to make it 'easier for the future' with just a little bit more elbow grease.

    Mine got all iffy when I explained to him that the amount of paperwork he needs to do is negligable by the mess that would or had been avoided previously. I also bought examples.

    It was not taken kindly.

  21. And the project supervisor wasn't that clear in his language.

  22. I've been scolded for not taking a vacation and working on the project instead (while most people and my project supervisor had a semi-forced vacation by the company). All I wanted to do is to work as much as possible in peace and quiet before the deadline (not yet determined) will crush me. I had already a rough outline of what's required and I could work nonetheless. I'd wager that I achieved more during the time than I could if everyone were there and disturbing my concentration. I cleaned up my code, I documented it, I added a lot more functionality and I researched how to use a library that I will need to use and semi-achieved a clean interface for a rather complicated interaction in VR for the current project. I could do a hack-job in less time in stress but I'd definitely bite me into my ass in the end. The project supervisor doesn't want to see that far.

  24. I heard through the grapevines that there are a LOT of Twitter users that change their profiles to Germany, mainly or only because Nazi-ism is illegal over there.

    And I am like... "Alright... Why ?" I mean people obviously think that there is something to gain by doing so ( whatever it is ) but there is bound to be a crackdown on such behaviour sooner rather than later. For starters you can not expect to use Germany's 'filter' for free. I guess.

  25. "Twelve Forever" on Netflix is weird. Disturbingly weird at some moments. It's a fever dream of puberty, repressed feelings and nonsense with a cute-ish childish filter on top with a lot of extra nonsense on top. I can barely recommend it.

  27. Licorice is the worst. It makes me really unwell when I smell or taste it.

  28. @scribus I only know licorice being black. Well 99% of the time it's black whenever I see it.

  29. @mrmattimation Never forget Valentine's day. Another day to feel wronged by society. I hate it more because it's culturally more established and has stronger connotations.

  30. @drinkingpony Looks like licorice. More likely salty licorice (German: "Salzlakritz", or named by its shape "Salzhering").
