here's a take that's not that hot because it's clearly painfully obvious:
IQ tests are racist
IQ tests are ableist
IQ tests do not provide any actual basis for intelligence, wisdom, ability, or creativity which are abstract concepts all varying in meanings and degrees, and using IQ score numbers and results as a way to prove ones superiority over others is disingenuous as fuck and completely false.
@eightbitsamurai THIS. I've woken up with the crippling realization that I havent been to class in WEEKS then remember i've had a full time job for like 5 years.
poor shaming, landlords
So I had to take my refundable bottles to the depot today.
The sad thing is, the homeless man I used to give them to hasn't been around, and I bet its because my idiot landlord always yells at him :<
She "could" have just asked if he wanted to set up a time to collect them. Most of the people here just want em gone, especially the people who don't own cars.
Never be angry when you could be kind instead.
"‘I think in the West there is still this misconception that the Communist Party still has some elements of communism in it. It does not,’ he says. ‘The Communist Party is the most rightwing, state-capitalist power in the history of the world.’"
"Because of the lack of political awakening or awareness, and because of the neoliberal ideological hold in Hong Kong for so long, people believe in contradictory ideas,’"
rant about negativity on online friends
It's such a fucking neurotypical thing.
Like "online friends are not real friends"
So once anyone comes online, they become unreal. Got it!
Online friends did 1,000x more to keep me alive than my entire family did and all my "real friends" did in my life
Just because I can't touch someone, doesn't make them unreal
In short: Just because you don't understand it, doesn't make it not existing
"why do Nazis keep appropriating otherwise innocent shit?" followup
Someone reblogged this again, and I noticed that r/antifafrenworld and r/apuworld had been banned like two months ago.
Which I'm just gonna point to the above again, and state very clearly:
that was not necessary or useful,
and a STRONG sign that reddit admin Don't Get How This Works
and are gonna ONCE AGAIN have zero sense of what's going on next time some fascists grab another innocent-shaped meme to parasite.
developers having powerful development hardware is actively harmful to usable software existing
there is literally an order of magnitude of power difference between the machines many developers use to create their software and the machines that their users will have - and that's assuming the users have brand new (but average) hardware
today's developers write software pretending that there will always be infinite resources, because the computers we have *let* them do that without consequences
