    Keeping Away From Paperless Society Does Not Prevent Hacking (because of course it doesn't)

    Welp, time to go back to using pencils. :unsure:

    Gillette's 'toxic masculinity' ad haunts P&G as shaving giant takes $8B writedown

    The ad breaks all the rules of advertising. You don’t insult your customers. Never ever. It never makes good business sense. I mean, why would you market for goony beard-men if they don’t shave? :ROFLMAO:

    The polarization these days is huge. It used to be on the level of minor disagreement, but now, it's literally "Everyone who disagrees with me wants me and my family dead". This doesn't bode well for our future.

    Gillette's 'toxic masculinity' ad haunts P&G as shaving giant takes $8B writedown

    Gillette razors have never worked on my hair, ever. They do nothing but cut my skin up. Schick disposables actually shave better than Gillette cartridge razors. :cautious:

    I have never known you to be transphobic. Ever. That’s bizarre that they’d say that.

    In a way, FiC is becoming exactly what I dreamed DWW would be. A place where people flip out at each other, and then, instead of mods telling them to go to their separate corners where they sneer at each other from behind prison bars and bear a grudge forever, their own guilt over their actions...

    Warthunder!

    Probably the best feeling ever was when I used an M6 Heavy Tank - a big tall piece of shit that never saw the battlefield IRL - to take out a Tiger and multiple Panzers after I got the drop on them and shot them in the ass. I wish I’d done a video capture of the replay, because after the game...

    The Tangent, Derail, and Argument Thread

    I think a lot of people out there don’t realize that mathematical models are just that. Models. The granularity of those models rarely approaches the level of discrete units of matter. However, the things people are doing with CAD stress analysis/finite element analysis and CFD these days are...

    The Tangent, Derail, and Argument Thread

    If I’m not mistaken, the most important part isn’t memorizing equations, it’s coming up with the systematic modes of thought that can be used to obtain new knowledge, which may or may not involve equations being used to describe the effects in detail. Think of the simplest aspects of physics...

    The Tangent, Derail, and Argument Thread

    I do know that state administration is filled with excess bodies. Morons invent red tape to stream across everything, and then they inflate their departments with people—a great managerial glut—to navigate the maze that they, themselves, created. I work in public transportation, and even though...

    The Tangent, Derail, and Argument Thread

    Most successful people in business are soft-boiled Mafia wannabes who conned their way into most everything they did. That’s why Neoliberalism, the current world order, is such a travesty. People already place their faith in con-men, and then they turn around and deny it. Finance is the religion...

    The Tangent, Derail, and Argument Thread

    That’s what it takes to have an entrepreneurial spirit, Rufus. Steve Jobs hardly knew a damn thing about computers before he met Wozniak, but he still ran a successful company that made them. Do you know why? Because he was the ultimate snake oil peddler. He knew how to take an idea ordinary...
