Lawsuit can proceed against Kenosha shooter Kyle Rittenhouse

A glowing commendation for all to see

That's a little funny

I needed this today

A golden splash of respect

Well, are you?








  1. Cycling. Convert burritos to kinetic energy.

  2. Have you ever considered riding RAGBRAI? This year is the 50th anniversary! If you want to cycle for a week and experience Iowa Nice, it’s worth checking out.

  3. I've considered it, but I have a little kiddo at home, so it'll have to wait for a few years. It looks like fun though!

  4. Don't forget the battalion of infantry that is there for the specific purpose of killing you!

  5. So what do you think about the suggestion I provided (assuming you can read the formatting; by all means complain about the formatting)? I think (when put in an IDE) it's easier for a newbie to understand than std::optional.

  6. Yeah, the formatting is wonky on Old Reddit. Indenting the block of code by four spaces is the only way to get it to print properly.

  7. I guess I don't understand the inner workings of c++ enough to use that *shrug*

  8. Ah, a kindred spirit. Have you seen the 7-hour Bismuth documentary on the A-button challenge?

  9. There are a lot of less obnoxious/dickhead ways to get that point across.

  10. It's not intended to be polite, since it's universally directed at someone who fucked up and wants you to drop everything to fix it for them. The fact that they're bringing it up to begin with is rude and inconsiderate, and I consider it totally fine to be rude and inconsiderate back to them.

  11. Being American is nowhere near the privilege it was in the 40s-60s. We were only so "great" because everywhere else was literally bombed to shit during WWII. We're better than 3rd world countries, but never forget that, for example, America lets citizens lose their eyesight from cataracts while proper 1st-world nations simply don't let their citizens go blind from preventable causes.

  12. Good comments in general, I have to quibble that the C++ section isn't really right.

  13. You're answering someone who is just copy-pasting ChatGPT answers, so they don't actually know what they're doing. It's still useful information, though, especially parameter packs.

  14. could you give me resources to learn this? (maybe a book chapter or blog?) there are no detailed tutorials.

  15. If you're okay with another import, there's also

  16. As a woman, I've always wanted to buy a house with enough land so I can dig myself a huge hole and have my own little underground cave hideout.

  17. Just don't put a shipping container in there!

  18. That whole thread had nothing but zingers in it. I just liked how fractal the awfulness was - every time you figured "okay, this was a bad idea," someone else would come in with yet another way that this thing is going to kill you. By the time that someone tracked down the shipping container's serial number and showed that it had been used to ship lethal pesticides, I couldn't stop laughing.

  19. Collectible card games. I don't see any difference between Magic the Gathering and any other pay-to-win game. Booster packs are lootboxes, etc. If the mechanics are interesting enough, I'd understand the folks who write on index cards and use those, but it looks like that is frowned upon by the community who, I assume, has a second mortgage taken out for their prized decks.

  20. Nope. They’re actually tearing down a historical district to build more condo high rises.

  21. And that's a good thing, because the alternative is that the housing crisis gets even more out of control. If there is a limited supply of housing, and you've got several thousand brogrammers and EEs who need a place to live, you're not going to have a good time competing with them.

  22. What's the argument for allowing homeschooling? It's unlikely parents are qualified instructors in any one subject, let alone the broader curriculum to enable success, and the lax regulations allow for parents like these to ruin the futures of their children

  23. Suppose that you have a neurodivergent kid who is capable of learning the material, but they get bullied relentlessly by the other kids. He'll be fine in college, but the local good ole boys at Polk High make his life hell, and the administrators don't care.

  24. Isn't the first batch off a still incredibly toxic?

  25. My uncle now operates a still in retirement, and yep, you still do not want to drink the first bit or the last bit.

  26. The biggest one is that professors do not care if you pass their classes.

  27. Terminal inability to learn from your mistakes?

  28. If I wear a BLM/LGBT/Reputable news source t-shirt at a trump rally while open carrying, do you think it would be ok for me to start gunning people down who aggressively approach/yell at me? Would I perhaps be... the instigator?

  29. If you gun someone down, you get to do the exact same thing that Rittenhouse had to do - prove to a jury of your peers that you feared for your life.

  30. The How It's Made episode on cash is super interesting.

  31. I grew up in a suburb of Boston, and there were so many Jewish kids at my school that we got Yom Kippur and Rosh Hashanah off as holidays. Almost all of them were the kids of Russian physicists, engineers, mathematicians, and so on who had been hounded out of the country through discrimination.

  32. I recently had to do something that involved a very mild background check (not apply for a job) and they wanted to know if I had ever been arrested. I was thinking — shouldn't you be asking if I was ever convicted of a crime? Because you can be arrested for being in the wrong place at the wrong time, no crime necessary.

  33. Kid, I want you to go and sit down on that bench that says Group W.
