    It's rather common for adults to date multiple people until one turns into a serious prospect. I personally don't like that on a fundamental level but I'd say a solid 60-70% of people do it.

    It helps to think that everyone considers themselves the cream of the crop, even when they hate themselves. Because then their inadequacy is unique enough to be the best.

    I'm way too critical of myself to consider myself smart, but with so many idiots around I have no choice to at least consider it

    What if you're just another idiot? A faceless idiot amongst a sea of idiots of equal idiocy. Each believing they're surrounded by idiots and each of course being quite right.

    (I'm really just pulling your leg here.)

    I could be an idiot, it's a very distinct possibility. But that would mean that all the work I've done here works well by random luck. I've ran the numbers and the statistical probability of that being the case is low

    But if you're an idiot, it's entirely possible that you simply misread the probability. :mischief:

    Are you trying to imply statisticians are a breed above our own ilk, my good sir?

    Yeah, that might be true.
    But there's no goddamn need to shove that in my face (I mean her, not you).

    That or the things I've built actually don't work well at all, but everyone's lying to me.

    Might as well give up and become a hermit at this stage

    So my job was terminated the day after my landlord wants verification that I'm employed. Perfect.

    A Christmas Tradition

    Rabbits can chirp and can do fish feet

    In a little over a week Trump (McGuire) will officially becoming president. Be awesome if he embarressed himself in somehow. Like throwing someone and getting countered or reflected or he instead of him going out there to the inauguration, he sends out a cardboard cutout to do it for him. Oh that reminds of my days at Trump (McGuire) University when I would learn the secrets to real estate because I have the blue print and that skills that I learned from a guy who worked at Lowes to do so. Plus I gotta picture with the official cardboard cutout of McGuire. And I got personally thrown by that cardboard cutout. My mom threw my degree from Trump (McGuire) University out of the top of McGuire Tower cause she thought it was worthless, but I tell, it was money well spent because McGuire is thinking of hiring me for a position in his cabinet that I have no experience in at all, just like how Ben Carson is being put in charge of housing because he's going to install revelation-inducing toilets in every household. It's where his life changed y'know. He straight outta a fairy tale. Gerald Ford has Homer Mouth. Bernie lost the election because he was buttslapping his way to the white house instead of being buttslapped to the White House. He wins when he gets his butt slapped. Now that its all over and Hillary sucked, people wanna slap Bernie (Egart's) butt. The elites of the Democratic party don't wanna slap Egart's butt, but y'know what, Stupid Sexy Sanders is all about. Slapping isn't the only thing they might do to Egart's butt, but at that point he's already won. He will run in 2020 and win or help get someone who actually cares to win in 2020, in order to prevent someone in the pockets of big money from winning. That way we won't have a repeat of McGuire getting elected and throwing his way to the White House again or McGuire displaying his failed business ventures on a table and with that I'm referring to his line of Steaks, Water and Vodka. Also his dancing is terrible. I don't get why lotta people love billionaires, think they're on their side and think they'll help working class people; when they got rich off of screwing working class people. I mean people love the fact McGuire turned a million dollar loan into billions, but when he's probably not even really a billionaire himself. McGuire spends more time in court than a lawyer does and he's the only businessman who would LOSE money on running a casino :D the house doesn't always win when McGuire is running it. Egart photocopied McGuire's tweet yesterday and put it on the senate floor where he threw McGuire and everyone wanted to slap his butt after that. Egart loves photocopying. He even photocopied a chart showing wage growth, and then you get to the 80's and Egart's like "Whooooah, what happend here? Oh that's right Reagan was president (The worst president in history and soon to be second worst)

    I know y'all are gonna be mad for saying Reagan is the worst, but Bernie criticized him, other people do, everyone criticizes everyone, so it's just opinion; except it's not opinion, but fact because everything wrong with the country can be traced back to Reagan. You can kiss Stupid Sexy Sanders' behind if you think otherwise. Or slap it...and lose instantly. I mean if you think arming the terrorists we're fighting today makes sense, or making half of America going into poverty so that billionaires can get a few more billions is fair, or destroying unions resulting in executives stealing all the productivity gains of other people's work for themselves and killing the middle class makes sense, or practically declaring war on people with Aids is right, or supporting South African Apartheid or the Contras and committing treason, then you clearly only want a president that says nice things to you even if he robs you while doing it. Bernie might not be perfect, but at least he proposes policies based on empirical facts, unlike the rest of the republicans and democrats who propose laws completely divorced from the reality of everyday people.

    Well, at least this is the right thread for a rant. I didn't understand a word of it, but it was definitely a rant.

    Well it was a rant and it was random :D

    Why do they skip Heroes IV, I mean I know it sucks (even though I never played it :D) but the package of the whole series goes from 3-5; skipping 4. Still, Heroes 3 is the no doubt the best one in the series of 7 games now and it was made in 99. And for 1999 there good graphics and Heroes 4 graphics are like Civilization 1 in comparison to Heroes 3. And Heroes 5-7 I mean 5 is good, but it's all hyped up and as if the makers don't remember that 3 existed or is the best one. I mean Heroes IV is a game as if Trump and Ben Carson worked on this game together; it's as if you got people with no experience of making video games and never have played Heroes 3 or any of them before, got together to make Heroes IV. It has to be! Because when you attack a town, you are able to attack through the Wall! Take that McGuire! I would not be surprised if Gerald Ford has Homer Mouth in the game.

    Roller Coaster 3 you can send people flying if you cut off the track and they'll fall 1000ft and get up like nothing happened. Except they don't know how to walk on grass for some reason. The US is a banana Republic cause I can buy bananas. And there's a store called Banana republic; makes total sense right? Just like how Ronald Reagan is regarded as the best thing since Jesus :D Makes total sense right? Let's just say you come up with all the good things he did on one hand or even zero hands :D; selling arms to the terrorists we're fighting today would cancel all the good things out. And obviously there's more bad stuff because much of the problems facing the country today (which isn't talked about in mainstream news by the way because Trumps's hands and etc. seem to be more important) stem from the Reagan administration. It's only a matter of time were everyone will wanna slap Bernie's (Egart's) Butt.

    I work in a place where seniority is king. So people get promoted to positions they have no business being in. Instead of hiring someone qualified for senior positions, they usually pick the most senior person who sort of kinda does something similar, and promote them instead. There is also a large group of people in administrative positions who lack some of the most basic of computer skills. Yet these people are expected to use Excel, computer systems, etc.

    Seeing so much nonsense around me makes me question my own effectiveness as a developer. If nobody around me knows what they're doing, it makes me wonder.. maybe I'm just one of them? And how come this place is still standing and hasn't fallen apart? It doesn't make sense. Nothing makes sense. Time to get another coffee

    Dude that sounds awful. Do you think it's a symptom of being a public sector employer or unique to just your employer?

    I've only had one career type job and it is a hyper meritocracy.
