Dude Levi jeans are fucking terrible now. The crotch rips out after ~6 months, even faster if you wear them all the time (like I do).

I'm currently using some less fashionable but supposedly rugged Carhartt jeans. We'll see how long they last.

HAHA I TURNED INTO A RANDOM THING MORTY. TOP TIER COMEDY
'


He did it to get out of a family session with a therapist because his live-in daughter's marriage is falling apart, and instead of imperiling his own relationship with his daughter by staying home he is instead thrust into an adventure fighting sewer rats as a cyborg rat-pickle before eventually battling a drug lord in a mansion alongside Danny Trejo.

That's why it's top-tier comedy. Family Guy would have stopped with Peter turning into a pickle in a five-second flashback bit.

Yeah, which is why they are making a big deal out of Beyond Light. They are removing a lot of the old superfluous content in order to streamline Destiny 2. Hopefully new players will have an obvious progression starting Tuesday.

Been using a Cooler Master Quick Fire TK w/ blue switches for quite a while now. I originally got it because it's super compact, but it's held up extremely well.

I didn't take you as the type to go for an RGB keyboard with bells and whistles...

Really Burriot of "Peace"? This is the process. We've had a crazy ass year so why not have a crazy ass election? Ya have a current president that's nothing more then a glorified used cars sales man making more threats that he can't back up.

Because our leader should represent the best of us and not the worst. It's so embarrassing. Virtually everything that has come out of Trump's mouth since he took office has been incredulously stupid, repulsively offensive, or both. Actually, scratch that, everything he has EVER said has been stupid and/or offensive. I've never been proud to be American (I was born here, I didn't have much say) but the past four years have actually made me ashamed of it. I understand why he won the last election; a lot of people wanted to throw a monkey wrench into the political system. The thing is, you're supposed to *fix* something after you break it, not pretend like broken is the new norm.

Wishing for Thanos to snap away everyone of below average intelligence won't change anything... Spoiler alert, it ain't just stupid people who disagree with you politically.

Yeah that's all well and good, but people voting for Trump could have picked anyone with a modicum of intelligence instead to vote for. The fact they are choosing again to vote the biggest fucking moron on the planet into the highest office in the country isn't something that can be chalked up to simple political differences.

I very nearly purchased Hunt a few months ago... it looks interesting enough from gameplay videos. DLC turned me off, though.

My mail ballot was received and accepted by the board of elections on 10-17. The fact that anyone feels compelled to physically go to the polls during a global pandemic because of some ludicrous mistrust in the USPS is one of the surest signs of how low this country has fallen.

Despite the intentional sabotage of the mail system, it's not the USPS I distrust.

https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/why-rejected-ballots-could-be-a-big-problem-in-2020/

Ohio mailed out ballots beginning 10-06. I tracked my ballot from the board of elections to my house and back to the board of elections where it has been "accepted for counting". There's a reason the ballot envelope has a line for your personal phone number and email address on it: to contact the voter IN THE EVENT there is missing or inaccurate data on the ballot.

That's the only way Amazon can make a profit.
Well that, and the fact that their 8TB drives are really only 7.45tb after formatting.
They're nothing but a bunch of cheats.

Yup. Never buy anything advertised as OEM from Amazon either. I can't count the number of times I've bought OEM advertised goods on Amazon only to be shipped the cheaper non-OEM product. These are for products that say fulfilled and shipped by Amazon as well. If you don't notice, you're getting completely ripped off. Someone really needs to start investigating their business practices as a whole.

I remember buying a TOSLINK cable ages ago from Newegg and this was the case. I left a bad review saying it wasn't OEM. A day later the seller CALLS ME begging me to take down my bad review as he said I was ruining him and he would give me a refund or ship me more cables and I was just like "ummmm... no. Bye."

My GF was playing it with some friends. I watched for a while while nothing happened before leaving and sporadically hearing her scream from her office.

I guess good on them for selling something for $14 that looks like it came straight out of 1998?

In the U.S. software engineers are exempt from overtime regulations. The company can pay it but it's not law. I've been in the industry many years, don't know of anyone around here that gets paid OT. But frankly I appreciate being able to work whenever I want and not keeping my time or punchclocking whatever. My particular company can get really busy if there is a hard deadline coming up but crunch is mostly not a thing for us thankfully. But you submit your own estimates for work, so if you're way over what you thought it would be you better have a good explanation or be willing to work some late nights to catch yourself up. Not required, but I'm sure it reflects on your performance if you never get anything done when you say you will.

Right.

As far as I know that exemption not restricted to just software engineers, but any salaried employee vs. hourly in the US. No Overtime pay for Salaried Employees.
That may have changed but I have had a Salary type job in will over 25 years.

Above $36,000. Below that, and they would be eligible.
How do I know that? In order to avoid furloughs when our revenue plummeted in March, my company rolled out short-term pay reductions. I took a 12% hit. The average was 5%. People making $40k weren't impacted, to avoid any chance of putting them below this, but I don't think we have many people making below $45k.

Apparently the Obama administration tried to make it $47,500, or $913 per week, but a court shot that down.

So instead of being furloughed and making an extra $600 a week in unemployment benefits you got to keep working while making even less money. I'd be interested in seeing the total monetary loss you suffered as a result.

A lot of local restaurants have adopted the Chipotle-styled fast food system around here. There are great Korean and Indian ones near me (the Indian one has a glass-walled kitchen so you can watch them cooking everything in big tandoor ovens).
