    Honestly, I think hailcorporate is more shill infested than the rest. That sub is the greatest place to put ads., and believe it or not, it's all you see.

    Isn't that the fifth horseman? And I looked and behold a fedora' horse and the rider thereof poured Mountain Dew on the Reddit server. "Be ye without/r/new and behold the void!"

    What I don't get is what these people think the government gets by lying about the shape of the earth. I mean, unless you're religious maybe, but even then I don't think the bible says they go to hell if they think the earth is round.

    A few things.

    A. You interpret everything in light of you. That guy that was late was doing it to hurt you. Your mom wanting to go to dinner with her friends is about her hating you.

    B. Nothing is your fault. Like if you fail, teacher is mean. Get fired, boss is a jerk.

    Makes sense. If there's no real abductees then what you see is a product of culture, and really, unless you're counting the Star Wars or Independence Day films, we haven't thought about aliens in a generation or more.

    I think the problem is that the description and ratings are useless. Everything is 4.5 stars, and even if you know what type of app you want, the discription for meditation apps (one I've been trying to find lately) don't tell you if you're getting much without micro transactions or if the app required a subscription. In games, you don't really get much of a description, and far too many end up as "pay to win" after level 10 or so.

    In some industry sure. I don't think IT and Stem care, I don't think artistic places care much. On the other hand, if you're looking into a high class service job or a conservative business environment, it's not as acceptable. And while millennials probably don't care as much as boomers, the opinions of boomers matter if the boomers are hiring or if they're the main clients of your service. If you're boomer or older, you don't want your high-service restaurant waitress to have a sleeve. If you're a boomer hiring a CPA, you're probably not picking the one with the tattoos on his arm.

    It's not so much a rarified setting, it's about the expectations a person has of the place as well as their ideas about the type of people who have visible tattoos and what they are. I know a guy with sleeves, and while they're cool, if he goes into a corporate office to do bookkeeping or management, he's probably going to have to cover them up. At least in the Midwest, that's not acceptable in offices.

    I see it as a sign of poor judgment. Outside of either low skill jobs or highly creative industries, most people don't like visible tattoos. So it's kind of a career limiting move if you want to be in a conservative business or a high end customer service environment. Now hidden tattoos, don't really care, because it's not like anyone sees it.

    Just how absolutely dependent we are on computers. Most records are computerized, most financial and business decisions are made by computer, many factories in the us are automated to a large degree.

    Two problems. First of all, all of this requires that the electric power stays on. No power, no banking, no medical records, stores can't order things, confirm orders, or collect payments. Without that. Essentially, business stops or goes back to 1960s tech. And that would slow things down a lot.

    But the other part is that a determined hacker can get at anything they want. If you wanted to, (and had the means) you could alter a medical records or Doctor order -- give that guy you want dead a massive overdose or a drug he's allergic to. You could go in and change or delete orders at your least favorite store (and suddenly Aldis gets an entire truckload of dildos) thus costing the shipping company and the store lots of money. You could rewrite codes on manufacturing equipment to cause that equipment to destroy itself or to make dangerous products. (Stuxxnet as an example of this).

    The thing is that all of this is only going to get more integrated with computers. Once you have computers driving, automate even more, it becomes not only impossible to prevent a hack, but much harder for society to recover once it gets destroyed. If there are no analog records anywhere and money exists only as digital data, then once it comes down, there's no way to buy, sell, or authenticate yourself. If the market has no records, they have no money, and they can't get anything because all the warehouse trucks are self driving.

    Butlerian Jihad. Eventually we'll be so dependent and controlled by AI, that we'll rebel.

    I dunno, I think in the right circumstances this could be helpful, but I think that using this is dangerous, as totalitarian regimes can easily put the population on anti rage drugs and thus remain in power.
