From 'quiet quitting' to 'coffee badging' — why employees are less interested in work
  • What's the complaint here? Showing up for the community aspect everyone was crying about and then going home to work for the rest of the day is not enough to earn the bare minimum wages everyone is offering?

  • A cheesy pickup line
  • I see your trucks hauling cheese and I raise you a line of pickups made of cheese hauling cheese.

  • The Fast and the Furriest
  • The Bad Guys crossover is looking good

    Prompt: a huge chrome V8 engine in a wooden stagecoach with chrome trim at high speed on a long desert road at sunset

    looks like it went v10, and I love the double running boards

    Idk, I just like chrome and stagecoaches and v8's

  • Las Vegas' dystopia-sphere, powered by 150 Nvidia GPUs and drawing up to 28,000,000 watts, is both a testament to the hubris of humanity and an admittedly impressive technical feat | PC Gamer
  • Ok, so it's "capable of drawing" enough power for 20,000 homes in the area. How much does it actually use day to day? Does it dim at night and brighten in the daytime to keep those ads rolling in the sunshine?

  • If only the creators of the ball had enough profit coming in to put up more solar panels and build up a battery bank for the night so they wouldn't take anything from the grid...

  • Maybe, I mean just maybe, they can run this thing only as long as the solar generated power lasts, and then turn it off 30% of the time.

  • What is your favorite Audiobook?
  • Not much. The book takes place on a future Earth, no space travel involved

  • What is your favorite Audiobook?
  • The Helldivers series by Nicholas Sansbury Smith, as read by R.C. Bray. It's the perfect voice to tell the story of the protagonist.

  • Why are many people in America so politically unaware?
  • It takes a lot of effort to stay on top of things, plus the research it takes to sort out fact from fiction. After all that investment, the amount of difference one can make is miniscule.

  • Redbox’s disc rentals are over
  • Your local library would appreciate it if you go ahead and check out some movies now and then. It helps them prove that they are worth funding.

  • What's your plan if Trump wins in November?
  • Don't forget to load it with something heavy first.

  • I love the absurdity of Farscape, but I do not accept the absurdity of Doctor Who. I will die on this hill. I do not understand the absurdity of Doctor Who. Why am I wrong?
  • You like what you like, idk why you have to be wrong about it. If you want insight into yourself on why you like this and not that, then therapy is where to go.

  • Chuck -n- Cheese's
  • Sorry, I'm having a lost in translation moment here. I'm not sure if you told me to leave or that I just outdid everyone

    Edit, or I'm too close to infringement?

    Is social media fuelling political polarisation?
  • Yes, it's a cycle. Social media fuels polarization, and polarization drives engagement, engagement fuels social media, which reinvests into fueling polarization and around it goes

    What makes a good whetstone set? What sets should I avoid?

    I'm looking for a better knife sharpener for my hard steel chef knife. I think whetstones are the way to go, but most of the sets I see are 4 double sided stones. Do I need that many stones?

    Is there a totally different type of sharpener that you have had success with?

    Edit: I should add that I like my knife very sharp, and I have a few tiny chips in the cutting edge from a cheap drag-through sharpener.

    I think it's hilarious that it put lyrics about napping sung and played in the style of a metal cover of a sea shanty. I think it should cut off right at 3:19, just before the music crashes back in.

    What DNS address do you recommend to replace adguard.dns?

    On android, I've had trouble with adguard.dns constantly kicking my phone off my wifi. It did great with blocking ads everywhere, but I'm done with reconnecting so often, and I have less data available on my phone plan these days to fill in.

    I'm looking for something I can fill in this spot and it just works

    What other addresses have you used that consistently block ads?

    An electric guitar

    In Bing Image Creator, DAL-E 3

    Prompt: an electric guitar designed with built in speakers and a flowing design with glowing lights and swirls of shiny blue on exotic hardwood

    After several iterations of this, I thought surely someone had built this before. Oh yes, I quickly found out, people had put built in speakers in electric guitars many times.

    How would you hide a paperclip in your home/apartment to win a contest against an investigator?

    This time, with rules.

    The other post got me thinking, here's my version.

    For 5 million dollars, the task is the hide a paperclip in your home from a professional investigator. You have 15 minutes to hide it, they have 12 hours and subcontractors to find it. You cannot leave your house or have anything shipped in during your 15 minutes. You have to leave immediately after the 15 minutes is up, and you cannot have the paperclip on your person. Any family members, friends, and all pets will also be removed from the premises, and they aren't allowed to have the paperclip.

    You must be able to produce the original paperclip at the end in order to win the challenge. It is marked in some way that you don't know but the investigator can verify. Absolutely no substitutions. You can bend the paperclip, but not cut it.

    The paperclip must be inside the building. Not in a shared entryway, not outside the walls in any way. Between the studs of the outside walls of whatever you own or rent as living space are as far as you can go.

    Any damage done by the investigator or subcontractors will be repaired back the way it was at no charge, win or lose. They are not allowed to harm the structural integrity of your home/apartment.

    Phone plan research help?

    I'm looking for a cheap plan for two unlocked phones that I already have. I'd like a plan that has 5-10 gigs per line, works with T-Mobile or Verizon, and available in Ohio.

    Once upon a time, there was a lovely website that would easily and clearly compare cell phone plans from any provider who had service in a given area. It has since been filled with ads, featured partners and compares only introductory rates.

    Is there another site that compiles and compares real world information on data plans and stuff? Do I have to just poke around on multiple different websites and compile information myself?
