I'm saying make sure your best talent has a good reason to stay.

Yeah, it's called profit sharing. They obviously didn't want to be there to begin with. So they made enough to get out and do what they really want instead and what's wrong with that? Why should they have any loyalty to a corporate master who'd drop them like a hot potato the moment the stock takes a bit of a dip? They owe their employer nothing. Giving people a reason to stay is called ownership. Just look at employee owned companies like Winco. Turnover isn't a problem. You have a real slave mentality, you know that.

Worst pain I've had is an ulcer. That was unreal. Felt like someone stuck a jagged glass shard covered in sulfuric acid into my gut and kept twisting it around. On the 1-10 scale of pain it was 12. And I've had broken bones, and all kinds of other pains. This just hurts - everywhere. It's more dull and generalized but whenever I move I get sharp twinges. It's really like I took a shitkicking from a biker gang or something. I have pain in areas I didn't know I had sorta thing. Just sitting down on the couch is a major effort and hurts a lot. I can't even put my feet up on the coffee table without physically lifting my legs up with my arms - and yeah, it hurts like a sonofabitch when I do that too. Well I just dropped my first tab of morphia - 5mg - so we'll see what's what in short order.

Ok, seriously though, has anyone here ever had "postoperative myalgia"? Jesus Christ, I feel like I've been run over by a truck several times. I literally hurt head to toe, even in places I didn't know I can hurt. My understanding is the comes from the drug "scoline" they use under general anesthesia - apparently it causes all your muscles to continually contract and relax in order to help move blood and oxygen while you're under. They say it can last 2-3 days but I don't see much on treatment for it...


It's succinylcholine, a depolarizing muscle relaxant:

Succinylcholine

Sorry it's hurting, man. Feel better soon.

Yeah, I kinda figured you'd know. Anything to do for it besides ride it out? Google is surprisingly short on how to treat it considering it's supposed to be pretty common. I'm getting my morphine prescription - as I don't do well with codeine - so I'm hoping that helps. Thanks.

My doctor gave me a pre for morphine so I think I'll do that as I can't do nsaid and ibuprofen or anything that's a blood thinner atm. So anyone ever deal with this? How? Hot baths help? I have to sit on the couch because it's almost impossible to get up out of bed when I lay down everything hurts so much. This is nuckin' futs. Maybe I should just cowboy it up and pound a bottle of whiskey.

So my penis reduction surgery went swimmingly and now I'm down to a normal 10 inches like every other guy. Wry

Yeah, declutter, man. Fortunately I learned that lesson early on. I left home 2 weeks after my 18th birthday and moved across the country. Didn't bother sorting anything just threw all my shit in a van and off I went. It was only after when I realized half of it was stuff from childhood I gave it all away and have always kept a minimalist attitude ever afterward. I always notice that sort of thing when I walk into someone's home, all the useless bric-a-brac they have. Thousands of dollars wasted on junk that just clutters up the place. No, I like very zen, clean, (near) empty spaces.

And yeah, like Helf said, F the SA. Always stay away from religious "charities".

This guy nailed it....

I think he has missed the point of automation. It's first to reduce the amount of work humans need to do to survive and ultimately to eliminate that work entirely.

We don't need to become machines. We need to build machines that can do our will autonomously.

So with the snow thing it's just out of shape guys who are suddenly engaging in a vigorous activity their bodies are ill quipped to handle. At least that's what I'm getting out of this. It's not as though it's the cold or something specific to the act of shoveling snow. I mean it's still a worth while reminder, but the way its reported is more like OMG SHOVELING SNOW GIVES YOU A HEART ATTACK, as opposed to you should exercise more regularly and/or be aware of heart conditions that may put you at risk of heart attacks from vigorous activities like shoveling snow.

It's not shape so much as overwork. They say the major issue is trying to lift/shovel too much snow at one - i.e. the lazy man's load. So instead of just shoveling a small amount of snow repeatedly and quickly, they're struggling to lift a huge pile of it and move it out of the way...that's the killer. Trick is shovel lighter loads more than heavy loads. Course it's not a problem with an electric snow shovel. Work smarter, not harder.

If you can get good coverage with T-Mobile, then it's the best way to go, imo. It's also the only way to go if you cross the Canadian border frequently (which I do once a week). I've been living in Canada for the past year and a half and I get free roaming all throughout the country, it's awesome.

Do you roam if you want to? Roam around the world?

Well if they made it offline like they originally promised they would have sold a lot more. That and allow mods and the game would have been a smash hit, but they're the obviously the smartest guys in the room, right?

Tell me again about how one of the richest corporations in the industry is doing it wrong.

Virtual monopolies do it wrong all the time. That's the beauty of being a virtual monopoly you can continue to fuck up and still make money. The only amazing thing is why there's no serious competition for Steam.

I have a lot of negative things to say about Nintendo because of terrible business decisions but I have to say that this was a pretty awesome thing that they did.

Christ, these sort of stories make me so damn sad (and mad at how fragile life is) but then some random people prove that Humanity is still a thing in this world.

Never-the-less though, the world still is less without Gabe in it.

Ok, but what are you actually doing to make the world a better place? Everyday about a 1000 children die from starvation/malnutrition related issues. They're also used as literal slaves both sexually and for labor. Even as shitty a deal as this guy had he's lived the comparitive life of Reilly. And Nintendo gets kudos for what? Allowing him to play an hour long demo? Yeah, they're real heroes alright. Christ, get some fucking perspective.
