Can someone link the post on here from that time we watched some streamer interview some girl about a p-do gamedev or something? Someone made a highlight thread about it. I could probably find it if I knew what the p-do in question's name was but I can't remember. I think he was like some dude with rich parents who was supposedly working on a game for years, and there was drama about it? Either way I know @JollyMoon and I both paid to have a message interrupt it, it was pretty funny but can't find the thread

EDIT: Would really appreciate it if someone could ping the bardfinn group to bring some of the members over to further mansplain things.
So I was looking at the twitter of an artist and on his feed this popped up:
From what I can gather this guys is a cyclist that rides with his in the front basket. Got a bunch of attention and now continues due to trying to extend his 15 minutes.
Vid above is him riding with his marsey in a basket and then getting pinged by a mo-ped that tried to pass him after he tried to pull right to turn in front of the mo-ped without indicating. He then gets cited by a police officer for not wearing a helmet.
So I did a moderate dive and turns out this dude is the exemplar of insufferable, entitled cyclist. He's sperging out to every comment, spamming the legal standard in response to people pointing out that he didn't indicate, should wear a helmet for general safety, not running stop lights and that riding with his cute kitty in the basket unprotected is r-slurred. He's evem indignant and inflammatory to people who agree and/ or are sympathetic. It's really...something.
In this I'm worried about the little marsey. It just isn't safe, and is only secured by a too long lead.
In text messages between Jonathan Majors and accuser Grace Jabbari, the Marvel actor appears to admit to physical violence against his now-ex — six months before Majors was arrested in March and charged with assault in a separate domestic violence case.
“I fear you have no perspective of what could happen if you go to the hospital,” Majors , 34, texted Jabbari, 30, in September 2022. “They will ask you questions, and as I don't think you actually protect us, it could lead to an investigation even if you do lie, and they suspect something.”
In that message, Majors also stated “it's just fake" — but keyed on the messages put into evidence, it was not clear what he was calling "fake" and no context was provided in court.
In the text messages — displayed to the jury and read into the record by Jabbari on her fourth and final day on the stand on Friday — Jabbari appears to assure Majors that she would not blame him for allegedly causing an injury to her head.
“I will tell the doctor I bumped my head,” Jabbari cried as she read aloud the message in court.
Then unable to continue through her tears, Assistant District Attorney Kelli Galaway took over: “I will tell the doctor I bumped my head if I go. I'm going to give it one more day, but I can't sleep and I need some stronger pain killers. That's all: why would I tell them what really happened when it's clear I want to be with you?"
The text messages, which were previously mentioned by prosecutors in a 115-page pretrial filing in October, are considered Molineux evidence, which the New York State Unified Court System defines as: “conduct that is inextricably interwoven with the charged acts” and which may “provide necessary background information or explanation” to the charged acts.
In that filing, prosecutors mentioned “medical records from London related to an incident that occurred in September 2022.”
That earlier incident of alleged abuse had previously been ruled inadmissible, but, in a series of cross-examination questions, which presiding Judge Michael Gaffey had said lacked specificity, the defense opened the door to prosecutors being able to share with the jury text messages regarding that prior incident, the judge told lawyers Friday morning.
On cross-examination earlier this week, Priya Chaudhry, one of Majors's defense lawyers, had drilled Jabbari about why the morning after the alleged March 2023 incident, the woman had told emergency personnel that she did not remember how she had become injured.
Gaffey said Friday morning that Chaudhry had asked the questions in an effort to impugne Jabbari's credibility “even though they knew there might be another reason she was not forthcoming.”
In those September 2022 text messages, Majors had responded to Jabbari, threatening suicide if his then-girlfriend went to the hospital for her injured head.
“Last night I considered killing myself versus coming home,” Majors wrote to Jabbari, adding: “I need love too. Or maybe I'm such a monster and horrible man, I don't deserve it. And I should just kill myself. In this way, my existence is miserable, I want to die.”
Jabbari — who in court was turned in the direction of the projected text messages — had responded: “I will not go to the doctor if you don't feel safe with me doing so, or don't trust me to. I promise you I would never mention you but understand your fear.”
Telling her that she could not reject his love and admonishing her for not hugging him after the alleged fight, Majors noted by text: “I will probably kill myself, it's not really contemplating anymore.” He added: “I'm a monster, a horrible man, not capable of love. I'm killing myself soon.”
“Jonathan, you can't say this I'm going to have to tell someone,” Jabbari responded by text, noting her perceived error in not hugging him.
As the text messages were read aloud to the jury, Majors — seated at the defense table in a black suit and white collared shirt — kept his head down, hands in his lap, his binder of notes shut.
When the prosecutor finished reading the messages, the actor looked briefly at the jury.
The details of that September 2022 incident were not further detailed for the jury, as that earlier incident is still otherwise precluded from coming into trial.
However, in the 115-page filing reviewed by PEOPLE, prosecutors listed a series of texts by Jabbari in September 2022 — only some of which were shared with the jury Friday — and which included, per prosecutors: photographs of a hand, shoulder and buttocks, along with texts about “punching,” “discussing pain,” and, as shared with the jury Friday, on September 22, 2022 a “text with JM,” using Majors's initials “re medical treatment.”
In court Friday, Galaway then moved on in her re-direct questioning of Jabbari to the March 2023 incident, asking Jabbari why she had initially told emergency personnel that she did not know how she had become injured.
“I was just scared of the consequences of it,” Jabbari answered. “I still wanted to protect him .”
“Ms. Jabbari,” Galaway asked her. “Do you know who caused your injuries on March 25, 2023?”
“I do,” Jabbari said, adding: “The defendant, Jonathan Majors .”
Majors is facing charges of assault in the third degree with intent to cause physical injury, assault in the third degree recklessly causing physical injury, aggravated harassment in the second degree and harassment in the second degree, in connection with an alleged fight between him and Jabbari that spilled onto the streets of Chinatown in March.
!chuds is going to jail
!nonchuds I'm sure Marvel can fix this!

Lol, I live in a nearly million dollar house, and make $125k for being a corporate whore in Canada (super communist right guys?), all accomplished under Trudeau's Government. Maybe people should do some self-introspection before blaming Trudeau. I love it here, and it's too bad failures blame others, what's your excuses? I grew up in a mobile home, I have no connections to get me ahead, I just work hard and grow myself.Edit: instant downvotes = me being right (-29)
Hes not wrong. every day in Victoria we have literal communist posters all over town. It's brutal. our country has gone totally down the wrong track. (61)
Regarding Joe's politics, it used to be centrist and nuanced, then became right leaning around the time he hung out with the dorks that referred to themselves as the "intellectual dark web". Since then it has become firmly a conservative media source. The trucker rally removal was justified, they were disrupting Ottawa far worse than any "occupy" tent city ever had, and that "movement" was also removed to fan fare by the people who would later do the same thing.Regarding the protests, all people regardless of their view have the right to protest, however when they disrupt a city or critical infrastructure they have gone beyond what the right of assembly protects. The attendees of the trucker rally are the same folks who said that the indigenous folks who blockaded rail lines should be out in prison. (-1)
That's just it though...who cares what his politics are, I don't follow but honestly if he went from centrist to full righty, good for him, obviously something changed in his life or somewhere that affected him and he was willing to change his views. Doesn't matter if you agree or disagree with those changes or his politics, more people should be willing to change sides and grow as people and as things around them change. How is that a bad thing?Ehh, aside from extreme canadian liberal/leftists and Ottawa residents, the entire world disagrees with how the trucker thing was managed, it was an unprecedented reaction that has only ever been seen in dictatorships and extremely regressive countries. Even most of my left leaning friends and family didn't agree with the premise but were behind them for standing up against the government. We should not be ostracizing people for standing up for themselves, most of our countries issues are because we refuse to do so. It's one thing to dislike... (3)
GOVERNMENT OF CANADA IS GUILTY OF INDICTABLE OFFENSES. We have knowledge of what China does to escapees that we hand back to them. They are unlawfully imprisoned, murdered or tortured by the Chinese authorities for attempting to escape punishment for protesting the government. Problem is that we cannot prove it. "The Crown must show something more than mere presence to prove the act of aiding or abetting. Presence in the commission of a crime might be evidence of aiding and abetting if the accused had prior knowledge of the crime, or if the accused had legal duty or control over the principal offender. For example, the owner of a car who lets another person drive dangerously without taking steps to prevent it may be guilty because of their control over the driver's use of the vehicle." In our case, we have knowledge and the power to not give the escapees back. If those escapees are proven to have been murdered, the one responsible is guilty of aiding and abetting murder--- and likel... (2)
People should care what the politics are of rich people with shows that have vast reach. Pretty easy.When Joe's political beliefs include things like Covid denial and racism, yeah it's important.What? Most reports around the world were greatly in disfavor of the truck protestors and thought they were shitty people with shitty beliefs and hated the way they held everyone else hostage. It's really amazing how people can see the same exact situation and come to different conclusions. But no, I definitely don't think the rest of the world was sympathetic to those moronic, Russian paid truck protestors. (-1)
Lol what? So we should care enough for the government to pick and choose what's controversial and what's not? Opposing views aren't a bad thing, it's literally the basis of democracy. Blindly following one view no questiond asked and censoring/banning anything opposing that view is literally the opposite of democracy and straight up batshit crazy. Please provide a source of Joe Rogan being racist. You can dislike him and his views but in typical cookoo lefty fashion calling someone racist because you dislike them is just flat out stupid. You can agree or disagree with his covid views, it doesn't change the fact that there are differing views on controversial topics, worldwide, including covid. Again, how is this a bad thing? Disagree and dispute, on merits, don't just cancel things you dislike, again, that's stupid and insecure. Honestly, if this is your reaction to differing viewpoints, you should move to China or Russia, it's anti democratic. I don't follow Joe Rogan, but from wha... (2)

I watched a lot of stuff this week:
First, I finished 'ReZero', the second season got better towards the end just like season 1, I hope season 3 will not drop in quality again though. Story wise they finally got some stuff done after being stuck in that temple village for nearly the whole season, and I hope they do more with the witches. But honestly, as long as subaru stops being a whiny b-word for good Im happy.
Then I also started 'When Supernatural Battles Became Commonplace', which I havent finished yet, seems like a pretty generic harem romance anime so far (thats not necessarily a bad thing).
I also watched 'Watashi no Yuri wa Oshigoto desu!', a yuri romance drama show, it was okay, but imo it lost its focus on its main character a bit too much in the second half. The least they can do is a second season.
After that I watched 'Bloom Into You', also yuri, which was okay but also didnt really lead anywhere.
After that I watched 'MagiRevo', also yuri, which I liked, hope it gets a second season at some point.
After that I watched 'Citrus', also yuri, which I also liked, and which also had a satisfying ending.
After that I watched 'NTR: Netsuzou Trap', also yuri, a very short anime but decent, Im a bit sad that it isnt a full length 12 episode show.
After that I watched 'Adachi to Shimamura', also yuri, it was okay but I hoped for more romance. As it is, nothing really happened, it was more of a slice of life show with some romance elements.
After that I watched the first episode of 'Maria-sama ga Miteru', also yuri, but idk if Ill keep watching it, it seemed very shoujou-ish.
Anyway, thats everything I watched this past week. If you couldnt tell, Im on somewhat of a yuri binge right meow, so if you have good recommendations for yuri anime, let me know.
@Merryvann pin pls

Think about it - when you can live life with maids, driver, no visa stress, family close by, and rising salaries every year - why would you leave that? The only reason is that it is still somewhat competitive to get that lifestyle back in India, so if you can't crack it in India one of the options is to move to US.
US now gets only the mediocre talent, instead of tip top like before. Tip top are enjoying their Rs 1 Cr+ packages and live like kings/queens.
Anecdotal evidence suggests that top IIT grads are now staying back instead of moving to US. Top talent that is in the US now is actually moving back to India as well.
Needed a copium option [top reply]
Lol exactly. Given that you need to pass engineering bar + get through a lengthy immigration process (an additional filter) how could it be easier to land a tier 1 job in the US?
Engineering bar for tier 1 is higher in India because of competition. Immigration is just luck and doesn't rely on technical talent, so if you're lacking technically you'd try pushing your luck with easier interview + immigration.
Is it though? In the US you have to compete with the domestic engineering market, + H1B tech talent from India, + H1B Tech talent from China, + (to a lesser degree) H1B from Europe and LATAM, Australia, etc
Seems like at least as much competition in North AmeriKKKa. By in large, ain't no one trying to immigrate into India from China via tech visa.
FAANG India is much harder than FAANG US. LC hard is the norm, and the competition is much greater because India has a higher population than US.
Many US candidates would fail.
Yes, the talent pool in the US is so awful, that's why all these globally relevant technology companies weren't founded and grown to their marketplace power here, but instead in countries like india
How many foreigners are moving to India for opportunities?
Irrelevant. How many are moving to China ?
way more expats in china than india
Sure China is 20 years ahead. Gotta see the gradient, not the position
Copium stocks after this post 📈
Those who moved already can't cope with it, just look at percentage of people from top IITs moving to US, it's decreasing every year. Previously they used to move because India had very less opportunities and low salary, now US startups are paying top $$$ and outpaying FAANG in India. Talented folks are moving towards startups like Glean etc. Only talented people who move to US are through internal transfers, not through dumb US state universities.
I'm reading Solitary Fitness written by him and holy shit this man is giga keyed. Some excerpts...
Don't overstep your goal coz, I'll tell you now, the Arnies of the world really are pumped up freaks
My strength is legendary - I once picked up a prison governor and ran with him
How many films have featured Bruce Willis wearing a vest, dripping gallons of sweat from his brow... what if he wore a pretty pink-colored sweatband around his head?
If I lost my arms and legs, I'd learn to use my teeth. I do feel for cripples, I really do. Hey, I've seen some of these guys and girls in sports and they are wicked! Have you seen them in the wheelchairs racing around, doing marathons? With one of them you wouldn't need a getaway car!
This man used to rob banks by the way.
Look at people like Steven Redgrave, that rower geezer... he'll live forever, while you muscle freaks will die from a broken heart, literally
Fat people actually smell: they fart a lot
If you're fat, then it's a fact, I'm not gonna pretend. You're sluggish, you're lazy and you're a joke!
I like his style of motivation a lot. Plus there's also the putting his money where his mouth is given he's literally in Solitary for 23 hours a day. Most fitness influencers can't say the same. Very Chad.
You're probably going to have a lot of hesitation goombling with your hard earned DC.
Not me, I'll just straight up goomble it. 16% return in 5 minutes. At that rate if you are lending even at a modest rate of 40 minutes per day, you're going to make 6.5X10^92 DC in 6 months
Trillion is 10^13
So that's 65 Trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion DC
It looks like a joke but the reviews are all serious and positive:
I loved this book. I read it cover-to-cover the day it came out, and then the very next day, I did it again. That's how good it is. It's delightful, heartwarming, at times tear-jerking, and definitely worthwhile.
Transgender issues are definitely the issue of the day. And the belief that trans women are just men pretending to be women, or vice versa, is at the heart of it all. So actually understanding the trans experience should be important to everyone, regardless of gender, and regardless of whether or not you know people who are trans and want to understand their experience better on a personal level.
And “To Own the Libs”, which could be retitled “Transition 101”, is definitely a good way to come to that understanding, on both a personal and political level.. It doesn't talk about surgery (FFS or GRS), but pretty much everything else. There are trans characters at various stages of their experience, a non-binary character, and cis LGB characters as well. And while the book is far from explicitly political, issues like the accessibility of gender-affirming hormones, anti-trans violence, bathroom access, and the attitudes of TERFS are very much a part of the story.
But above all, “To Own the Libs” is just a delightful story, one that will bring a smile to your face, and some tears as well. Highly recommended.
I cannot begin to properly put into words how wonderful this story was. An utterly absurd premise, somehow written in a completely believable - and even relatable - way. Well, that is, for anyone who's ever been an egg themselves, anyway.
The core story flows from humorous to touching, from heart-wrenching to deeply heartwarming. And then on top of all that, you have some amazing epilogues that point towards the future.
I'd put off reading this one, because I knew it was going to destroy me, and I was right. 12/10, would get emotionally destroyed again. This one goes in the re-read list.
