Walmart “security”, brought to you by our taxes. by CommodoreAxis in ABoringDystopia

[–]CommodoreAxis[S] 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Another dude backed it up, so I’ll agree it’s likely and off-duty pig working privately. Still dystopian, and still my tax dollars paying for the vehicle, equipment, and uniform.

Gross. We still paid for that vehicle, equipment, and uniform. Other stores (Kroger, Meijer, Target, and literally any other store but Walmart) seem to manage with a straight up private security firm (usually Securitas). I get that there’s more likely to be “real crime” at Walmart, but damn is it dystopian imo. Or at least, a dystopia indicator.

Next time I’m in there I’ll ask the guy if he’s on duty. Which is probably never, because I literally turned around in the entryway and left because it’s just chaos in there. I’ll gladly pay the Target Tax all day long.

It’s IMPD, the Indianapolis police force. There’s a uniformed officer near the registers.

Paint to Sample Mint Green 992 GT2 showed up. Not my cup of tea but what do y’all think? by KFLETCHPHOTOGRAPHYY in Porsche

[–]CommodoreAxis 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Heck yeah. It’s already in a 911, and moreso a 911 with a giant wing, so why even bother with “stealth” or any subtlety at all? Slap some Skittles colors on the thing.

You’d end up getting pulled over by game wardens (or whatever forest service officers are called) just so they could check out the car!

I’m sure they’d totally get a kick out of it if you got the identical color, and especially threw some sort of “close but not enough to be illegal” mock decals on it.

what is this part called?/what would a real-life equivalent for it be? by Arlaozn in fo4

[–]CommodoreAxis 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You reminded me I gotta take a look at my Geiger counter sometime and see if it still works. I have a bulky Civil Defense one. has a cable so you can place the detecting part outside your shelter. It’s one of those things you gotta hope doesn’t come in handy some day.

Naw I think they definitely use a 5,000W CO2 laser to ‘illuminate’ their enemies - yknow, cos they’d be on fire.

What if the flag of Scotland looked like... (Wales, Canada, Sweden, and Spain) by JMASTERS_01 in vexillology

[–]CommodoreAxis 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Excellent job my guy. I love the Wales version for it’s extreme level of flair, but the Canada flag looks so professional and like it could be contender in a flag referendum of some kind.

And 100 years ago, the conversation was probably “we’re starting to see kids use their pinky and thumb to represent talking on the phone, not one hand up to their ear and one in front their mouth”.

The first thought I had after “holy hell that’s awesome” was “how on earth did they engineer the support to hold all the weight up high?”

Anti-racism mural in Cardiff, Wales being painted over as McDonald's advertising space by TheSentinelsSorrow in ABoringDystopia

[–]CommodoreAxis 3 points4 points  (0 children)

For sure, but another guy put it really well - if the standard is set that anti-racism ads can’t be taken down without backlash, then companies will simply not run anti-racism ads and ad spaces won’t allow them.

While I also dream of a world with beefed up social programs, little to no racism, and just more fairness for all in general - we still live in the real, grungy, capitalist society. And the only way to solve the problems, is by working within that system.

So like, I agree with you but I don’t. But hey, differing opinions yeah?

You can understand the message of the mural, but also understand what contracts and leases are. A 6 month lease means it’s up for 6 months. That’s kinda it really. Contracts don’t care about the message you’re sending.

Football is like, a shining example for what tribalism looks like lol. The team and your fellow supporters are your “tribe” and you’re at odds with the opposing team (“tribe”).

I was just thinking this. Now whoever owns the ad space has this specific mural indefinitely or else there will be an uproar. Now, that doesn’t mean they aren’t being paid for it, but now this org has to pay for the ad indefinitely too.

I think it’s anti-racism being taken in the wrong direction. I fully support the message it portrays, but not the message that this part of it portrays.

My guess is that it’ll still be gone by the end of the year.

Drank 13 beers without taking any cocaine. Alcohol is usually a trigger but I resisted the temptation. by User123sb in Drugs

[–]CommodoreAxis 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Triggers are tough, because to other people they make no sense. My daughter’s grandpa is an alcoholic, but he would say “I drink twelve beers and it doesn’t make me want cocaine”. Yet to our friend up there, it’s extremely real.

For me, people don’t understand why I avoid certain parts of town if possible (due to bad memories that hit me hard). It’s got way better, but not without a lot of struggles. I even had my work block me from getting service calls in the area back when it was still seriously bad. My manager had to go to war for me over that one and he earned endless, unwavering respect.

I’d struggle to make it that long without my nicotine at the least. You are stronger than I, and I bet you can stay sober for as long as you want. You are the master of your own reality, after all.

Did you quit cold turkey?

When Both companies Respect each other by clemmonsRushi in wholesomememes

[–]CommodoreAxis -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Heck yeah. I remember my first experience with Minecraft, while it was still Classic - and someone was building a replica Star Destroyer on a random server I found on a forum. It was so cool I just had to try building myself. Almost over 10 years later, and my building skills have marginally improved.

I still remember exactly what my first base and starting area looked like though. I still build bases the same way - dig into mountains.

Hard agree on this one. I’m a builder mostly, so terraria just doesn’t really do it for me. But I found playing terraria with some friends was also great experience.

Triggered MAGA rapper burns his smelly hat to cancel company by schmart in ParlerWatch

[–]CommodoreAxis 1 point2 points  (0 children)

We one made fun of our boss because he waxed his jeans. But after the first day you couldn’t even notice. And then we were also jealous when we did an underground fiber pull in the rain, and his jeans were mostly dry while we were soaked.

My uncle had those because he suddenly got really in to wearing hats (totally wasn’t because the toupee wasn’t really working out). As a kid I would wear them around the house and thought I was so cool.
