Etterra,

America is frequently misrepresented as free and the good-guy, so all the time really.

Etterra, (edited )

Still inaccurate to the book, hard pass.

Etterra,

You know you’re being treated equally when you’re being equally exploited under the law.

Is Craigslist Dying?

I went to Craigslist in my local area for the first time in awhile. I used to like “best of” Craigslist because some of them were great, there still are some, but its just not the same. A community I used to visit had about half the number of posts as I remember, and of jobs and things for sale, I would say roughly half the...

Etterra,

You mean the “totally not prostitution, for real you guys, I mean it, don’t arrest me” section? Because that’s why all the hookup and dating sections vanished. It was even in the news at the time.

Etterra,

I’ve kept a 6-county atlas (Chicagoland) in my car since the 90s. Highly recommended. We had a hell of a time explaining to my I’ve cousin’s oldest kid why learning how to use a paper map was a critical skill. Sometimes the Internet don’t work kids; keep a map in the car.

Etterra,

I knew the day it was announced that it would be trash. Glad I never bothered with it.

Etterra,

Here’s a pitch; start quietly buying him out while he’s busy with whatever new shiny bullshit catches his eye. The dude’s a boat anchor.

Etterra,

In the end, this is true for any job. Learn to stop caring that you know better than your boss, and just give the minimum expected and ordered effort. It’ll save you SO much stress in the long term. Even if you do manage to improve things, you won’t get paid extra for it, so screw 'em. Just do it the bosses way and then shrug when it goes tits-up. Also, always make sure your resume is up to date and prepare to jump ship at the first opportunity for a better paycheck.

The most important career you can learn is that to your employer, you are neither friend nor family; you are an expendable resource, so treat them the same way.

Etterra,

You spelled “tires” wrong.

And before you say it’s a regional difference, American native English speakers outnumber the next 3 countries combined, and none of them are England (which is 5th). Which means that the way we do it is the correct one.

Etterra,

Remember, that law was written by those who it will affect most. They’ll never make it more than a slap on the wrist.

Etterra,

They’re not there to be your friends, dipshit.

Etterra,

And from what anyone who’s ever had to sit near him, that is a literal description.

Etterra,

But I’m already free to suffer from lack of good health insurance, what more could I ask for.

Etterra,

The original owner of Galactic Civilization 2 basically said the same thing. He also wrote the Gamers’ Bill of Rights.

So of course GalCiv3 did the exact opposite, removed a key feature (milky way map) that was in the first 2 so they could sell it as an overpriced DLC, and made as many DLCs as they could (though not nearly as bad as Paradox or EA).

I don’t know who owns Stardock Entertainment now, if the owner sold it, sold out, or got hostile takeovered, but now they’re just like all the other big corporate assholes.

Etterra,

Welp time to get the flamethrower again.

Etterra,

They’ve been lied to by the illusion of freedom of choice. Or they’re rich and don’t care.

Etterra,

That man should be hanged with his own stupid tie.

Etterra,

Joker, the human who’s better at evil than a cosmic being that feeds on children.

Etterra,

Those bottom ones look like UFP starships without the nacelles.

Etterra,

Just because we can eat it does not mean we should. Looking at YOU, cabbage cultivars.

Etterra,

Saying cringe is cringey.

Etterra,

I hate this cancer of a game and this just illustrates once again why that hate is well deserved.

Etterra,

It’s pretty obvious. They’re playing hopscotch on a vinyl mat covered with soapy water well trying not to spill a bowl of more soapy water. I don’t see any bottles but beer may be involved. If it doesn’t have a name, then I hereby dub it Slippyscotch.
