  • It was over in the first quarter

  • The great American boom is finally running out of steam, leaving mountains of debt
  • ELI5 what you'd do if president, with the exact same 2 houses of Congress and the same supreme court of 2024, to fix everything that is not great with our lives.

    Also, check your non-housing and non-food expenses from 2018 vs today's, and see if you're spending way more on non essential fun things. Usually disposable income is a telling sign of how good things are.

  • New York City postpones controversial, first-in-the-US congestion pricing plan
  • Ackshually, the majority of people driving into Manhattan are not poor. The toll would have had minimal effect on "poor people."


  • Tesla FSD vs Mercedes Driver Assist
  • Completely embarrassing... for anyone who talks about how legacy automakers are "catching up" to Tesla

  • Tesla’s in its flop era
  • Instant bootup That is not instant, and all other EVs have that stupid start button taking an extra step.

    remote keyless control

    I'm not talking about controlling remotely via a fob or app, I'm saying if I can have nothing in my pockets besides my phone, have the car unlock automatically, and I can get in and instantly drive, all that happening in less than 3 seconds.

  • Tesla’s in its flop era
  • I love mine. Which BEV lets me have seamless phone key and instant bootup, letting me walk up and get into the car and drive away immediately? I also have my heat/cooling and heated seats on auto and love not having to fiddle with knobs. If another car maker can catch up to them I'd switch but I don't see it happening soon.

    My hood isn't perfectly flush with the front on one half of the front though, and the FM radio reception is pretty bad, so I do have some complaints.

  • Father of Marine killed in 2021 suicide bomb attack at Afghanistan's Kabul airport arrested at SOTU
  • Let's say you work at a very busy fast food place that has a night shift, complete with its own night manager. While you sleep, the night manager puts in an order: at 1pm, all remaining potatoes must be dumped, and you must go buy new crates of potatoes. 10am comes and the daytime manager comes in, and is stunned to see the order. At noon, the lunch rush starts. At 1pm, the day manager follows through on the simple order of throwing out the remaining potatoes, and now the fast food joint can't make more fries.

    Who is at fault in this situation? The night manager agreed to dump the potatoes and gave an order on the exact time to do it. There was no plan given on how to do it. The day manager received the order and was the one who actually dumped the potatoes, costing the restaurant a ton of money by essentially shutting down fry production.

  • I've noticed my boomer parents using instagram and tiktok. I can't tell you how excited I am for them to kill those platforms like they did facebook.
  • As a 34 year old, my wider circle already killed Instagram. They post memes, news videos, and in some stories - a picture with million words on them. There already is a social media platform for this. Know what? FACEBOOK. If you're going to use Instagram like Facebook, just use Facebook. I wish Instagram would go back to being used for just photo/short video updates and that's it.

    Took a nice photo of your pet? Instagram. Recorded a clip on your XSX/PS5 and want to share? Facebook. Made a short video montage of clips of your recent road trip? Instagram. Took a video of your cousin's graduation? The video is 5+ minutes so Facebook.

    I miss the intent of Instagram. There is a mood I'm in to want to see a ton of crap, and when I'm in that mood, I'd use Facebook to dig through all the updates. I liked Instagram for its simplicity. Been using Instagram since I first got my iPod Touch 4, and many of my friends in college used it as I wrote above. The same people no longer do it.

  • White Rural Trump Supporters Are a Threat to Democracy
  • What I can do for rural Americans is vote for Democrats that will raise my taxes and use them to fund these poor states. Then they pull shit like this. Their local GOP parties and the voters that agree with them are evil to do that to kids. Rince and repeat for expanding Medicaid, etc

  • What smartphones are people using nowadays?
  • Which phone? Stock OS or custom ROM?

  • What smartphones are people using nowadays?
  • don't have battery life

    I have a Fold 5 with a snapdragon 8gen2. I have "light performance mode" on at all times, and deep sleep most apps that I rarely use, and get 8 hours SOT. The 8g2 phones are definitely worth getting for battery life

  • What smartphones are people using nowadays?
  • I got the fold 5. Two weeks ago it dropped out of my pocket (folded) as I got off a regular bus and dropped 3 feet right onto road asphalt. I had a tempered glass screen protector on both the front and back, and have absolutely zero damage other than 2 tiny dings on the aluminum frame, and had to replace the front screen protector as that one was cracked badly. The front screen had no damage after peeling off the screen protector, and the inner screen has no damage whatsoever. Cameras are also undamaged and the phone seems to have no internal damage. I personally vouch for the durability of the Fold 5 :)

  • How did you lose weight?
  • Premake healthy snacks like overnight oats and fruit salads. Throw away all cookies, chips, soda, juices, and other high calorie and low nutrition foods and drinks. Eat more fiber and whole grains. This is hard for people but going vegetarian doubles weight loss if you replace it with direct substitutes like tofu and mushrooms. Round it all by adding beans or chick peas to your meals.

    Having high fiber foods means you don't need to change your eating habits. The issue with advice in this thread is it ignores the struggle with eating habits. Not everyone can go to snacking addiction to "I just eat a banana before 5pm and nothing more", it's completely unrealistic and makes you feel worse about yourself and causes more binge snacking as a result.

    Finally, look at small goals. Try to switch your foods to the first 2 things I mentioned. Switch to only water. Always drink a ton of water right before eating anything and your stomach will feel full. You will see weight loss of 5 kgs quickly if you go all in. Then target your body's feeling, the aches will go away slowly as you put better things into it. Then target further small kg losses, 5 kg at a time.

  • LineageOS 21 brings Android 14 to more Phones and Tablets
  • If you root, install Lineage, and gapps, do Google Wallet and banking apps work?

  • Why is living with your parents considered a bad thing?
  • I'd be really curious to know what happens to you between your early 20s and your late 30s

    As some people said in this thread, it's hard to get a job that pays well out of college. You're supposed to be using the help of living at home to work towards getting an actual career so that you can afford to move out by/around 30. If you are in a difficult financial situation in your 20s and you instead spend them spending your money freely and frivolously without bettering yourself, you'd be rightfully seen as "lazy".

    I graduated with a degree that didn't work out in the path I originally saw for myself. I moved back in with my parents at age 22, and spent my 20s:

    1. Working whatever desk job I could
    2. Saving as much as possible
    3. Teaching myself programming at night

    I would not have had been able to do the 2nd and 3rd things unless I was living at home, because I'd be putting all my small pay towards rent and living expenses, and also probably be too tired to learn a new career as 1 entry level job is not enough and I'd probably be working more hours or a 2nd job to make ends meet. At the same time, if I was not doing those things while at home, I'm wasting an opportunity and my privileged position (not everyone can move back), and would see myself as lazy. In my 30s, I have an actual career and had put myself in a good financial situation thanks to that opportunity of being able to move back in.
