gently caress's sake lad, there's April Fools jokes that don't hurt anyone and then there's April Fool's jokes that get people to go out and stock up on a medication that's being taken off shelves because it causes cancer.

lol that guy was on an episode of the dollop and was the worst guest they've had

My dumb rear end was actually talking about microwave oven microwaves, since I thought if it were possible to run it while the door was open then that would be harmful to people.

that makes me think of how my grandma is on her second microwave ever, which my aunts got for her last year when grandpa passed-

the first was purchased in the 1960s, and was a beige box with a mechanical egg timer and an on/off switch, and that's it. No power settings, no auto-timer, no shutoff when the door is open. She would commonly open it mid-cook to rotate or stir the food while the magnetron was still going

She's pushing 90 and says it hasn't harmed her, but that's probably because the thing was running at only like 300 watts

I know two Kyles and neither fit that stereotype.

I heard the Trashfuture Podcast (which is good and funny) use the more colorful "guy from Nebraska named Kevin", and it was very funny because I know a guy from Nebraska named Kevin and he is a sweet and anxious nerdy fella with a dece income working at a non-profit who would only put a hole in a wall because a cat is stuck in there

also I have experienced the "male Karen" as a bartender; it is the boomer guy who does not directly confront, or ask to see the manager, but loudly and passively says to nobody and everybody, "this is the worst martini I've ever had"

this guy In thinking of in particular looked like a Chet

Like, were ancient Egyptians completely calm and rational about the literal biblical plague?

Also that crack about "oh no, not my firstborn puppy" most children have either millenial or younger parents. They know there are still small children out there right, how old do they think the parents of those children are?

I'm a millennial, my only child did not survive birth, and a decade later I'm not sensitive about it anymore but also haven't been able to rly have a meaningful romantic relationship so, completely rad to see that compared to a puppy litter with a less than 100% survival rate

Also lmao whyyyy would they make a tweet that seems to make the ten plagues look like they weren't a big deal??

when someone vaguely on the left posts 'simp' i just see a poster pathetically scrambling to use the cool new internet word without giving a poo poo where it came from or what it means

it's not unlike a lonely teen misguidedly trying to curry favor on an xbox live server by saying n-slurs

One More Fat Nerd posted:

I'm normally supportive of sex work but findom and findom adjacent stuff just really strikes me as unethical. Like, we say its good to take money from incels, and i would agree, but I think the genuine incels are too hateful towards women to pay them. The dudes actually spending money on findom are probably just sad dudes with massive self esteem issues. They should be spending that money on therapy, rather than seeking out mean girls to bully them for their lunch money.

lmao what do you think incels are, confident and happy people?

an incel's hatred is often cloaking the vulnerability of unfulfilled desire- and it's not like misogyny makes desire for women go away; would that it did

Yeah when I was in the US recently in the before times at the beginning of 2020, my friend thankfully reminded me to leave a tip at a cash only coffee place and I was so caught out and didn’t have many smaller bills I just threw a 5 at the person for a 2 dollar coffee and left cuz I didn’t wanna awkwardly ask for change.

Tipping is bad lol

tipping is bad and has its origins in post-civil war methods of making sure black people didn't get paid as much, if at all

what you'd do there tho is give em the five, they give you back three, you give them back one- but you also probably made that baristas day with a triple tip!

i am a fan of ghosting the tip, where you get a $4 bar item, hand a $5 over, leave with drink while the bartender is making change

FFT posted:

Tipped labor as explicitly codified into wage laws as a way for employers to pay employees less than minimum wage is distinct from tipping as a concept.

lol in a society without prejudice, maybe, but it's an individualist solution for a collective problem and in that system, a black fella doing the same quality labor as a white fella in Alabama (or, gently caress, almost anywhere in the US) is making less under even the most well-considered tipping situation

idk if you are a USAian- if you are, open your eyes to how this hurts marginalized people who might be seen as less acceptable because of their genetics. If you're not, lol, you have no idea what its like to live in hellcountry

They should announce an expansion pack that just adds a ruler named A. Whiteman (with a false historical background that falls apart the instant anyone researches it at all), who has max stats in everything, and is available to rule any country for campaigns that start in 1488. Then compare the number of complaints received to the average number of complaints for the ones that added more women/Jews/etc.

e: Also, a Venn diagram of those complaint categories and forums users.

imho, they should not, in fact, do that
