I saw an interview with a super wealthy guy a while back and while he was definitely a shitlord he had one good point that charity should be done anonymously because it's the only way to know you're not doing it for the recognition

yeah but charity doesn't mean actually giving away your money to philanthropic organizations anymore, it means putting the money into your private foundation, where you can claim it will eventually be distributed to good causes but face few requirements to do so, all while enjoying tax advantages. any publicized giving and the recognition generated is only so the public doesn't wise up and make it illegal for you to do this

if you go on the joe rogan experience, you are going to smoke weed with joe rogan. the only way to get out of this is if you're a professional athlete who'd lose his job for pissing dirty

yes yes but you see the price of amazon is totally justified by expectation of future dividends, it has nothing to do with speculation that some future idiot wants to buy in at an even dumber price than you

Buy old cars*, they are better for your wallet and the environment and you can post in AI about fixing them instead of GBS about taking a second mortgage to pay for parts and service.

1. Buy a Haynes repair manual for the car

2. You should always have basic tools

3. A garage/storage will run you cheaper than the increased degradation of a vehicle that sits outside and is rarely maintained.

1 i could do, 2 i mean yeah i have a toolbox but not a full ratchet set or w/e, 3 no it will not because i live in the san francisco bay area. i mean i do have a carport and i maintain my (2017, purchased new) vehicle by taking it in for warranty service when the owner's manual says to do so

Truga posted:

buy a bike, you need a size 14 and size 8 wrench to fix literally anything on it and it fits in your closet.

again, san francisco bay area. i want to live.

any change a renter might want has already been thought of by landlords 5 years before you got there, debated in city council meetings at 1pm on tuesdays that only retired busybodies show up to, and enshrined into law in favor of those property owners, who have been voting for the garbage politicians for the last 35 years

there's a state wide rent control proposition on the ballot this time, prop 10. it doesn't actually establish any rent control at all, it just changes some rules to give cities more freedom to decide to implement rent control if they want to. the constant commercials against it are hilarious, like homeowners are being ATTACKED

But yeah to get back to what Truga said, if you live so urbanized that you run into space issues of a garage, the question would be if it truly is necessary to sustain individual mobility in Form of a car or if you wouldn't be better of with a bicycle and maybe a motorbike for trips outta town (they run you a lot cheaper in general)

tbh i have been considering getting an electric bicycle, one of the pedal assist ones, because it would suit most of my needs... only need the car for longer trips or when i gotta haul poo poo back from costco

kahnbahn is very silicon valley tho. it took them 30 years to learn it from toyato, but its there now

idk it sounds like they were actually using kanban in a way that was useful to them the workers, tracking what parts they have/need, with cards representing physical objects and simplifying their organization, rather than the silly con valley way of having a whiteboard or jira shiteboard that shows stories moving from in progress to qa to complete, which executives can look at rather than having to think for 5 seconds

if your story doesn't fit the jira workflow then you can't put it in jira and therefore you can't work on it because it's not in jira!!!!11

if we try to sell automated systems that are any less aggressive than humans nobody will want them

this has been my argument against self driving cars for a while now yeah. maybe we can build them if everyone goes 20mph. otherwise the way we drive is so completely unsafe that we'd never find it acceptable without being able to point to MUH DRIVING SKILLZ as a reason why those statistics are for other people, not me
