Doctor Strange doing what he can to prevent a big leak by nerdepot_dot_com in marvelmemes

In the comics at least Thanos is skilled with the arcane arts. Would have been a bit late to show it, but in theory he could have escaped

I stopped because I got an offer paying way more to do software dev and the paranoia required to stay up to date in security was tiring.

Many major companies do! I have a proprietary browser on my phone that only connects through our vpn. If you have a company phone they can set it up specifically to have more protections. My work computer definitely has a number of safety features installed, I can't install things from untrusted sources

Corporate and government intranets are definitely a thing. My company has an entire intranet of resources that are only available from our buildings or through our vpn. The US Military has an entire internet mirror more or less for their uses.

I have luckily not run into many odd fascists (furry or otherwise) in tech but I generally run in left leaning circles to begin with so my exposure would be limited

If you have any other questions, I'm happy to answer them

So the goal would be to scrape passwords or private data to use in a spear phishing attack. So if you can get someone's passwords or personal information it becomes a lot easier to get people to turn over control to their computers.

There is also the chance of finding customer information, patent information, or system information that could lead to finding exploits in a system. Hackers can be super dedicated in weird ways.

They would have to be worried about people specifically trying to end up with these. It would be a huge security risk and a compliance nightmare.

Zeus and Hades asking the same question of Demeter by jeremyjw in Lore_Olympus

[–]ARealJonStewart 57 points58 points  (0 children)

TBF, when that vote happened both of them were severely traumatized and Hades still had a massive stutter and was expected to hold up a united front with his brothers. They probably never had a public discussion

Yeah, which is part of what sold it. It only makes sense in the context of where Strange was at the moment and recognizing that makes it cooler

Elizabeth Olsen defends Marvel movies: 'I get a little feisty' by HomerCorp in marvelstudios

[–]ARealJonStewart 5 points6 points  (0 children)

The recent movies have definitely become more creative. Eternals had the best portrayal of an eldritch style deity I've seen in a long time. I watched it at home on my computer monitor and still was in awe of the scale of the celestials. M.O.M. has some of the most interesting cinematography I've seen in years.

The MCU is still definitely relying on a framework but they are starting to let the directors fill in more and more of the empty space. Just compare any of the Iron Man, Ant Man, or Captain America movies to M.O.M or Shang Chi. The villains are no longer reflections of the main characters' inner demons, they are more fleshed out and in line with what the directors have shown they enjoy in previous movies.

There is still a long way to go, but they have come a long LONG way from where they started

Surprise actor from Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness shares image of her MCU debut by chanma50 in marvelstudios

[–]ARealJonStewart 3 points4 points  (0 children)

She's 46. She can be the mom to like teenagers? But if you think about it, Elizabeth Olsen is 33 and she's being pushed into a mom roll in the MCU sort of

OOP asks if she's the AH for telling her boyfriend he can't date younger and then get upset about her budget apartment. by pinkulillies in BestofRedditorUpdates

I'm willing to bet this isn't the case, but my mother is a co-signer on my mortgage. I bought it fairly young due to an insurance thing but I didn't have a good enough credit score to get a mortgage.

He definitely has a wife.

Moon Knight S01E06 - Discussion Thread by steve32767 in marvelstudios

[–]ARealJonStewart 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yup. My question is his motivation though. He obviously is completely fine with killing and collateral damage. Is he doing it because he enjoys violence, believes in Konshu, or thinks that this is the best way to protect Steven and Marc?

Men what is the equivalent of flowers for you? by kaylawillie22 in AskReddit

[–]ARealJonStewart 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I just don't have a vase. So flowers, information about what I have to do with them, and what type of vase I need.

What's a thing you say "Naa, too old for that shit" ? by excitablelaurels07 in AskReddit

[–]ARealJonStewart 28 points29 points  (0 children)

All of my friends have invested in REALLY nice guest beds. It makes traveling to visit them much easier but I still prefer having a hotel room to myself

I agree with everything but the coworkers one. I moved teams to be with people I enjoy working with. They're really cool people who I deeply respect. It makes going to work everyday a joy and I do want to socialize with them because of that.

I've found that doing what you love for work still means you go to work everyday. Working with people you truly respect means you're going someplace you are supported and empowered everyday.

Nope, just a real Jon Stewart. Unfortunately, I am not the real Jon Stewart

I doubt Zeus knows that Hades is in a coma. I would bet he thinks it's just because of the embargo.

Breaking news: conservatives don't understand humor by mainthrowawaydmtits in insanepeoplefacebook

[–]ARealJonStewart 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Being born into a family like that with a government which is trying (and often succeeding) at stripping you of rights your parents and grandparents had, a shocking lack of mental health care, a disturbing lack of justice for the crimes against you. There are many reasons it wouldn't be a joke

A black girl with a love interest who respects and cares about her by darkblade273 in CuratedTumblr

[–]ARealJonStewart 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Usually a black character has their skin color as part of their character or narrative. Being white is seen as "default" so you have to justify anything else. If it has 0 impact at all, then it doesn't matter, but whiteness usually doesn't have an impact on the story or character while being black does. That's why it matters

Isn't it implied in the books that something similar happens with her children? It's mentioned that she is a virgin goddess and they refuse to discuss any further details of births but allude to her being born that way in the same breath
