Re: Our Collapsing Civilization

The others don't surprise me but... AT&T's call centres? I can't find very recent sources, but here's an article from 1993 explicitly calling out AT&T doing this (that's when they laid off their union employees and replaced them with prison slave labor) and here's an NPR article from 2005 t...

Re: Bob's Toybox

I took particular note of the way the Kingdom of Loathing/Frog Fractions team spat the name of Brad Wardell, Stardock CEO, and a quick search here brought up comment about the 'tone at the top' at Stardock. I'm aware that Mr. Wardell is not a fan of Kotaku, but that's not an unusual position and do...

Re: Our Collapsing Civilization

For-profit prisons are already formally direct legal slavery, it's in the 13th Amendment. That cheap produce in Walmart, the labor to Build The Wall™, the reason AT&T's call center workers actually have American accents... For a while the cheese in Whole Foods was made by prison slaves until the...

Re: An Open Market on Economics

I mean I don't know what world you live in where cash is even an option. Every company I've worked for locally (including my tribe) makes you take direct deposit or makes you sign up for a check card which they charge you out the ass for. Like, yeah, the intention is great, but that's just not how ...

Computer programming is exempted from overtime, presumably as a holdout from when it was a women's field.

Re: Little Pig, Little Pig! Let Me Admin! (Security Thread)

Looks like the problem is that High Sierra just shipped with a root account with no password because setting the root password fixes the issue.

Apparently all you need to get root on MacOS High Sierra is "log in with username root and no password".

Re: An Open Market on Economics

OF course, who pays estate and gift taxes? Not people making less than 10k a year. Estate and gift tax exclusions are already sky-high. It's something like $14,000 for direct family and otherwise $100,000 to need to report gifts, and even then you don't actually pay taxes until you get to $5 millio...

Re: Let's all go to the movies~

Thor 2 committed the sin of being both really dark and really boring at the same time, which always makes whatever is doing that into this bland, boring, overly serious grey blob that nobody can fully remember within a month of experiencing it. (It had a few good moments, though.) And yeah, loved s...

Re: DEMOCRACY SUCKS (or does it)

My favorite's out, but UHF and Who Framed Roger Rabbit are up there. Some of this may have been the bias of the quiz: Princess Bride, while fantastic, isn't quite as much of a "Nerd Movie".
