lemmy user(ule)s: "this sign won't stop me because i can't read"
  • You're absolutely right. I meant it was "acceptable" -- I don't recall hearing people judged for saying it, but that was among an immature, high school crowd. It was definitely considered offensive to use as a label, rather than an insult (which was on the same level as f*g; not acceptable, but commonplace).

  • Because it takes slightly less mental energy to sit and stress than to do the thing.
  • Except it's not so much "shiny" that distracts me, as it is literally anything.

    There are things that I've intended to do for months. Many times, I've been on my way to do it, only to have some little thing distract me, and then completely forget about what I intended to do. Maybe a child asks me a question. Maybe I stop to take a sip of water. Maybe I just start thinking about something else in that 10 second walk. The significance of the distraction does not matter; the task immediately vacates my mind. I often even remember that I was going to do something, but I cannot remember what.

  • If you insist on it being a girl, then yeah, it's too late. Adult relationships have their own brand of sweet and romantic.

  • I don't think I've used the word once since high school. Had it been generally unacceptable back then, I wouldn't have done so. I graduated high school in 2004, and it was at least an acceptable insult back then (though not to call a disabled person), I think. I was a jackass in high school, though, so I could be wrong.

    Either way, it offends people now, so we shouldn't say it. It's that simple. Deliberately offending people just makes you an asshole.

  • PSA.
  • Silicone is easy enough to remove.

  • Fair and Balanced
  • Yeah, it's pretty bad, particularly trying to read it on a phone.

  • What popular product do you think is modern day snakeoil?
  • I definitely learned useful things in community college -- at least in so far as general education courses can be considered useful. There were some duds, of course. However, I don't feel like I got much more out of university classes of the same level.

    With that being said, you may just have the misfortune of attending a lackluster school.

  • And people who don't read make fun of you for it.
  • I'm still not 100% on how that is pronounced.

  • How many times are they going to try this shit?

  • Start ups when that VC funding kicks in
  • My wife's job has all of those amenities, too! Well, it didn't at first, but she's been 100% WFH since covid. She's got an office with a window, cats in the workplace, lunch is brought to her straight from the kitchen, and she can even take breaks to go on walks with her family during the day.

  • Every day.
  • It's easy if you try.

  • Anon interviews for a job
  • I don't feel tardy.

  • Can you read the ancient glyphs
  • A bit off topic, but I was playing RimWorld and ended up with a colonist nicknamed Real Estate. He got captured during a raid at one point. I kept waiting for the quest to rescue him so I could post this meme, but it never happened...

  • No-win scenario
  • But if they don't understand what mansplaining is (and are the type to use the word despite not understanding it), any explanation you offer is likely to be considered "mansplaining."

  • Biden supporters mostly back him in 2024 election because they oppose Trump, poll finds
  • That was also true in 2020. And in 2016 for Hillary.

  • The police need this for...?
  • I think that's part of the joke. Texas and birth control bullshit.

  • Eventually you outgrow him
  • Ah, I figured you thought you were on-topic (that the original post was somehow critical of his acting?), not on a tangent. My mistake.

  • Eventually you outgrow him
  • Nobody said anything about his acting. This is about him never dating anyone over 25.

  • GOP candidate proclaimed himself homophobic. Then he claimed he was "persecuted."
  • I guess? I was homophobic as hell back in high school, but I'm now a firm supporter of LGBT+ rights. But I suppose this guy isn't claiming to have changed.
