I disagree entirely. I started a D&D campaign and found a bunch of people on Meetup that wanted to play at my house. Now i have a bunch of friends. It's really that simple.

Jobs? You haven't found what you are good at yet, apparently. Keep looking.

Women? Women want security. Give it to them.

Comment Re:The nature of the Trump-fans is pretty obvious (Score 3, Interesting) 301

A Kia that I own with a Trump sticker in Baltimore got vandalized to the tune of $2500 in July. I appreciated the new paintjob, since I have a $100 comp deductible, but the person did it to be a criminal douchebag.

My yard sign has been ripped up 3 times in a Baltimore suburb. I have had dog shit dumped on my lawn 4 or 5 times. Eventually I installed cameras and caught the motherfuckers, who got fined and harassed by the cops, but it was fundamentally a waste of money to deal with the scumbag local Democrats.

Recurrent theme around here, and a number of the houses in the neighborhood have pulled up their signs to avoid the bullshit. Isn't changing how they are voting, though.

So yeah, about those Trump supporters...?

People who aren't interested in thinking need the metaphysical window dressing.

Believe it or not, that's a paraphrased Hitler quote, but that doesn't make it wrong.

I don't fault you for your beliefs, but I don't agree with them. I think that once the bioelectricity stops flowing, we cease to be. Anything else would be supernatural. However much I would like to talk to my father again, I don't think it's going to happen. It's not an emotionally satisfying viewpoint, but it is the logical conclusion of my other beliefs.

I see what you are saying, and at first I agreed - it seems like some phone maker would make a larger phone with more battery.

But after some thought, I'm pretty sure no-one would buy it and that's why they aren't making them. The problem is when buying a new phone a larger phone would look and feel terrible in comparison. A three day battery life would mean nothing to most people used to charging phones every day anyway, while the larger phone would not fit well in pockets, or be super heavy in a purse....

The fact is that it's just way too inconvenient to lug around un-needed battery with you all the time, being able to use an external battery for more power is way more flexible and people just prefer it.
