RDN's Lucifer (nerthos)

  1. @zeldatra Jesus was a roman-era Hebrew, so he's pretty distanced from modern day Jews. He's also only half Hebrew since only his mother's lineage can be traced, so arguably you could cast anyone eurasian for the role and not be too far off mark.

  2. @zeldatra "Lose" is relative with <1% difference.
    Brazil is quite screwed either way, Bolsonaro was quite disastrous, but Lula is downright horrid, ideology aside, any other option would have been better. On the plus side congress is stacked in Bolsonaro's favour, which means neither party can really do anything without the support of the other; theoretically this should mean they can only enact reasonable policy, but emphasis on "theoretically"

  3. @ceruleanspark More recent versions of the software can be adapted to allow custom emojis on the name field, but I'm not sure how complicated it'd be to implement on 1.0.1

  6. @scribus I would still go on an RDN roadtrip no questions asked, even though I'd probably have to shoot someone a few hours in at this point. Bonus points for a certain someone, in his own words, wanting to hit me with a wrench but 100% not brave enough to actually try if in the same room.
    You're cool though, so we can eat fries after the fights die down.

  12. @adiwan Really the issue with it is how it thoroughly insults the work of the original author, going for a philosophy completely opposite to Tolkien's. It would have been ok as its own standalone thing.

  14. @scribus It's a waste to become immensely rich and not bananapost the world order. In his place, I would have gone through with ceasing satellite operations and responded to any further messages from the ambassador with "lmao" and a version of "friendship ended with mudasir" edited to pictures of zelensky and putin

  15. @zeldatra Good gun, a bit expensive for carry if you don't use it often though. I'm a beretta 9mm guy, always found them nice, they were the standard cop gun here for decades.

    >He doesn't actually go through with it the next day
    I am very disappointed, I thought he had a better sense of humor

  21. @scribus For me "other teachers" hasn't been too big a hurdle, because even though some are antagonistic (particularly the ideologues) they also tend to be massive cowards, so my usual strategy of just talking with full honesty to whoever's in charge is not something they know how to deal with.
    The district and the ministry are another issue altogether, they seem to be on some sort of one-sided competition to prove the limits of insanity and incompetence when it comes to regulations and counterproductive ideas can yet be pushed further. The latest great ideas they had was a proposal to remove the attendance requirements so that students can't fail a class by not attending; and to demand tech schools be more lax with dress code (the dress code for tech school is just no hats, no piercings or jewelry in the workshop, pants without holes and knee-length blue or white overall/duster, all of which are basic safety requirements in a workshop)

  23. Theoretically the work rules and environment at highschools nowadays is downright nightmarish, but since in practice what you can and can't do comes down to how you frame it and how good you are at talking your way through the hierarchy, it's not stressful at all for me and so long as I get results the administration doesn't get in the way.
    I do often see other teachers that aren't good at the workplace politics losing hair and sleep over it though.
