You just got in a major car crash. What's the most ironic song you'd have playing.
  • Oooo, this one actually happened to me. Head on collision with a barrier at 80mph, fell asleep at the wheel after getting out of a 27 day stint in the ICU. Dare To Be Stupid by Weird Al was playing when i collided.

  • What would cause a person to speak in different accents randomly?
  • Sounds like a disorder relating to MPD, but it could be any number of things. My advice is to be supportive as much as you can be, when ones own mind is the issue it just feels impossible to deal with.

    Not all disorders are ones that will affect work in "predictable" ways, everyone is different. They might just like practicing dialects and not have particularly strong social and coping skills.

    As difficult as it can be to interact with people like that, keep in mind their perspective: it might feel like everyone wants to alienate them which makes it difficult to interact without that assumption tainting the experience.

  • Get in the Hilux
  • I work in a grocery store, and while I would still need to be in about 25-30 hours a week to ensure product is on the shelves a massive amount of my time at work is useless facing and looking busy after the first few hours of real work restocking. If I was paid fairly I could come in for about 3 hours every day and have everything that needed done done without spinning on a thumb all day just to barely make rent.

  • What Are the Best Ideas for Using LineageOS with Root and microG?
  • Realistically it won't make a difference since you have an unlocked bootloader anyway and you won't be able to pass strong integrity with it unlocked regardless. It just makes using some apps a bit of a headache, but if you can deal with playing cat and mouse with safetynet fixes it's not really much of an issue.

    As far as apps, I recommend the gappsmod to get the Pixel dialer features and AdAway as a baseline, but it really depends on what you want to do with the device.

  • Ah yes, organization.
  • I have had a Logitech G600 and a Corsair Scimitar that have both had issues in the past. The G600 had the switch outright die and the scimitar developed inconsistent scrolling (also super stiff and hard to middle click anyway).

    I do a lot of web browsing and RuneScape, which uses the middle mouse button to move the mouse and I tend to rebind the DPI buttons under the wheel to the middle mouse button to compensate.

  • Linus Tech Tips (LTT) release investigation results on former accusations
  • I have no issue with LTT as a whole, I just really don't like Linus. He portrays an almost weaponized incompetence in a lot of computing topics and doesn't accurately represent his own lack of understanding to the audience that couldn't tell on their own. By all accounts there is one hell of a team working there, they just chose a really bad face to represent the actual content.

    Just my personal take for what it's worth.

  • After almost 28 years, Super Mario 64 has been beaten without using the A button
  • Yeah, I haven't ever met a speedrunner that hadn't played the game casually at least a few times. Just because its a running joke that speedrunners don't care about the story because of the effort taken to skip it to save time doesn't mean speedrunners literally don't care about it. Kingdom Hearts speedrunners are the only ones I have met that can hash out the entirety of that convoluted mess.

  • Honeypot
  • Good, I think it's hilarious and if they don't they can fuck off. I love having the freedom to criticize and hold accountable the public figures in society. They don't hold themselves accountable.

  • Pokémon Go players are altering public map data to catch rare Pokémon
  • Yeah, and the consequence of them using the dataset is massive amounts of people contribute useful data to the project. It is a fair exchange in my opinion. There are lots of reasons to hate Pokemon Go, but this isn't one of them. You can use the maps too, and they are far better as a result of PGO using them.

  • Ok, $23. Final offer.
  • That's an insulting way to haggle though. If $40 is a slightly below fair price and $45 is agreeable to both then that's both a simple and pleasant transaction. Offering to haggle then refusing to haggle by doing that is insulting the same way as severely low balling.
