I don't believe for a moment that a business account is interested in anything I might say, so their only reason for following me is to get my attention and hopefully a hit on their website.
Pay someone to repeatedly poke you with a stick and say "remember Back to the Future mate? Remember Back to the Future mate?" while you watch Tron Legacy and I reckon you will have accurately simulated the experience of watching Ready Player One, which looks like a steaming bag of basic nerd pandering shite and the kind of thing that only the sort of awful people who wear Doctor Who and Zelda mash-up t-shirts could possibly get behind

White Evangelical Christians are evil, and their religion is nothing but diabolism.
It is wrong to initiate violence against WECs, but it is NOT wrong to marginalize them at every opportunity.
We should not do business with them.
We should not befriend them.
We should not date them.
We should not speak with them.
We should not vote for them.
We should not work for them.
We should not hire them.
We should not tolerate them, or their beliefs.

I often imagine getting a suit specially tailored to conceal a pistol to wear when going on job interviews, so that when some manager starts talking about "cultural fit" as an excuse for refusing to hire me, I can kneecap them, give 'em a good long look into the dark eternal, and say, "Say 'cultural fit' one more time, motherfucker. I dare you. I double-dare you."
politics, self care Show more
"this whole self-care push is just another capitalist boondoggle. We won’t take care of you. In fact, we will continue to push you until you are a broken body and we won’t change a thing about our working conditions, and then we will claim that it was on you to take care of yourself, to practice self-care. After that, we’ll take away your health care too, so that you can just go away and die."
Let's quit pretending Christianity has a benign history.
Google’s true origin partly lies in CIA and NSA research grants for mass surveillance
“The intelligence community hoped that the nation’s leading computer scientists could take non-classified information and user data, combine it with what would become known as the internet, and begin to create for-profit, commercial enterprises to suit the needs of both the intelligence community and the public.”
remake suggestion, sort of joke, lurid Show more
so, remake Sex, Lies, And Videotape, but there's no Graham and no subplot, there's just a female character and she's talking about sexual experiences she's had in general
and it's Olivia Thirlby
I know that's not a proper remake in any way but . . . can I just
watch Olivia Thirlby make eye contact with a camera and talk for a few hours about orgasms
if not WHY NOT DAMMIT
@starbreaker If you end up in another one, please consider saying, "Given that linear time is the lower bound for sort, wouldn't it be smarter to ask me about an algorithm only 1 rank down who's methodology I might reuse, as opposed to what people asked when merge sort was considered 'too complex'? I don't have a great description of how to do blitting in software either, no one does it anymore."
If you'd like to annihilate interviews like this, I can help. :D
@starbreaker Most CS graduates don't remember that kind of useless shit TBH.
And why would it be an advantage to remember one of the worst sorting algorithms, anyway? That's just an embarrassingly shoddy interview.
Me at a #programming job interview...
Manager: How would you implement a bubble sort algorithm given this C# array?
Me: C# arrays implement the IEnumerable interface. I would use "var sortedArray = IEnumerable.OrderBy(i => i);" to sort the array by its contents.
Manager: but that's not bubble sort.
Me: And this isn't Microsoft and you aren't paying me to re-implement the .NET framework. If you wanted a CS graduate, your job posting should have said so. Now, are you done wasting my time?
Me at a job interview
Manager: What are your weaknesses?
Me: I'm weak against physical attacks, fire, and lightning. However, I resist ice and wind, nullify holy, and reflect darkness.
I'm a card-carrying honest-to-goddess Pope. As such it is my privilege to bless you all in the name of my goddess and decree that everybody should immediately down tools, stop working, and go do something hedonistic.
Hail Eris. All hail Discordia.

@starbreaker @drequivalent @Mainebot The only humanities class I would make mandatory would be a history of science ethics, with stuff like chemical weapons, Tuskegee syphilis experiment, complicity of chemists in the holocaust, the Hg leak in Japan, the time they injected people with radioisotopes in Montreal, etc
