    • @scribus The world needs a mark at the end of the sentence to signify an sarcastic intent more than ever. I propose the ↓ because everything goes down at the moment.

    • @adiwan Definitely agree on the sarcasm mark being needed. And I actually really like Spanish's leading punctuation, it always seemed weird how English has it at the end to tell you what you should have been doing instead of telling you ahead what to do.

  8. Evidently schools that haven't even had their first day are already reporting cases? We're just gonna... heads down, march dick-first through the razor pit? Not even look for a ladder? Nobody's even asking why we're dick-deep in a pit of razors??

    • @scribus One Bundesland (State) here in Germany has opened their schools this week under some terms like wearing masks in the hallways and segregating the school building into manageable sections for contact tracing and spreading out the school day as much as possible to reduce the amount of people. The number of active infections there is low but I sense it'll backfire nonetheless in a week or two.

    • @scribus I saw that on The Daily Show With Trevor Noah and The Late Show With Steven Colbert. I had to instantly laugh when I saw that each time. Make-up, firemen breathing masks, masks in hospitals, masks at mask balls, face paint at sports events and Carnival (Mardigras) and Halloween.... ALL SINNERS!

    • @adiwan Well, more than zero of them have previously railed against makeup, Halloween, Madri Gras, and fun in general...

  12. I admit that I was lenient towards this at the beginning and didn't take the whole thing very serious, however I did my usual things like proper hygiene and my natural behaviour of avoiding people, but very soon I did everything right with wearing masks and such. I had underestimated the outcome and spread before. But after all of the evidence I cannot fathom why people can be still so stubborn.

    about 11 days ago from web
    • @adiwan I've usually been a bit cavalier about new diseases, too, aside from standard flu-season hygiene. I was on team "don't wear a mask if you aren't sick, we need them for front line workers" until the new science came out. And I, too, do not understand people who take the advice of a group of uneducated desert monks who've been dead for two thousand years and their demigod fanfiction over modern science and medicine.

    • @scribus As far as I could seen in the videos nobody has used religion as an excuse. I've seen more messages about being fed up by the government and being told what to do, and being inconvenienced, as well as skepticism of the whole pandemic and the virus itself.

      about 11 days ago in context
    • @adiwan I guess I don't really know that a major amount have been using religion specifically, but it just seems common in a lot of science denial.

  15. Yesterday i was at my favorite coiffeur because I couldn't stand the long hair anymore that constantly fell into my face and was heating up my back neck. Now my hair is short again such that I do not need my hair drier for a while because it dries quickly on its own. I also gave a bigger tip.

    about 14 days ago from web
    • @adiwan Curious, do you have establishments that might be more of a "barber shop" situation? Like, in the USA, there's sort of a "barber for men, salon for women" thing going on. I kind of like the idea of just a neutral "haircut place."

      about 14 days ago in context
    • @scribus Most places I know in Germany and Poland offer cutting hair both for men and women but they are sectioned off in a way, men front, women back (with or without a wall in between). Smaller places with less traffic do not have that.

      There are only very few places that are highly specialized on either gender, like for men and offering more services for beard grooming.

      My favorite place has men in the front and women in the back. It's a Turkish lead establishment that has some fancy services like pulling eye brow hair with string for both genders, often used by people with monobrow tendencies and the pulling of the hair creates a very clean look without stubbles.

  16. Haha I didn't realize I was even buying a curved monitor, this is w e i r d

    about 15 days ago from web
    • @scribus I saw a curved monitor at a store recently. I get why some people want them but I am on the side that who wants the screen flat, except for retro games (NES, SNES) the screen can bulge out a little bit.

    • @adiwan It's not especially pronounced. I've seen some that were gnarly, like you need peripheral engaged to see anything, but this isn't too bad. I think I'm more tripped out by how wide it is, coming off of the laptop life. :p

      about 15 days ago in context
    • @scribus I can feel that. When I had my 50'' 4k TV in front of me it was slightly overwhelming. Before that my 24'' 1920x1200 PC display was huge when I upgraded from a 15'' CRT. On the laptop side I highly prefer the 13'' size.

    • @adiwan Thank god Tolkien didn't live to work in the medium. Then again, maybe "The Hobbit" would justify three movies...

      about 2 months ago in context
    • @scribus The Hobbit is a short book but it compresses time a lot and a lot and things are not very well told because they come somewhat out of nowhere. 3 movies is a bit much, I can agree that 2 would be very fine.
      Reading Inu Yasha to the end was easier than Lord of the Rings. I HATE all those lengthy scenic descriptions in LOTR and my brain fades out too quickly to get past them. LOTR would work a lot better as a comic because those would be held to a brief instance and not minutes and multiple pages. To be frank: Inu Yasha has also big pacing issues. It could have been easily cut in half without losing too much of its substance. Towards the end it got DBZ-like when it comes to stretching the content and delay the inevitable.

  27. New Pokémon Snap? I'm gladly waiting for all the reviews. Especially I'm waiting for all the reviewers and people bashing it for being too repetitive, short, and unoriginal. The N64 game can be played through within a few hours, and even then there was barely any varying gameplay beyond gushing over 3-dimensional Pokémon jumping around and abusing them with throwables. I expect the new one being similar in scope feature-wise. The right evolution of the game has to be at least a semi-open world with day-and-night cycles and a focus on stealth and exploration, like a real animal and nature photographer.

  29. hope to god those Nvidia leaks are fake, those are some ugly motherbatcaveing graphics cards.

    about 2 months ago from web
    • @mrmattimation Who cares how they look like? As long as they perform and have good thermals for a reasonable price it's all nice and dandy. Also those leaks are nVidia's own design, and all other manufacturers can implement their own solution. Most of the time the card is in a PC case and in my case there is no window in my case, so looks are totally irrellevant.
