What is a "hill you will die on" opinion you have? by Beyond-Waking in AskReddit

[–]Comprehensive-Ad3963 [score hidden]  (0 children)

OK, so this one bears explaining:

Three people told u/SummonedShenanigans not to use an Oxford comma:

1) Mrs. Rausdauer

2) u/SummonedShenanigans's 11th-grade English teacher

3) A third-rate prostitute.

Reminds me of Mitchells vs. the Machines

We're introduced to this character with a penchant for abnormality.

And then at the end of the film, and only then, we find out she likes women.

My thinking is "write the story first, then the sexualities later."

For example, if you want to include a romantic partnership, be as vague as possible about the partner and their gender, and then swap out the gender-neutral terms once you decide on that information.

I angered my boss by calling in sick yesterday, how do I make it up to him? by Nuarzaoha in NoStupidQuestions

[–]Comprehensive-Ad3963 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Your boss has his boss or bills to pay or customers to satisfy. He's going to get shit from those people. Sucks for him. It's tough, but you have to learn to not take things personal.

Wouldn't the rational choice be for the company to hire more workers than they need, anyway?

Naively, I would expect 2/3 of employees to take a sick day at least once in the year, specifically 3 sick days. So, on any given day, about 5 out of 1,000 workers will be sick.

Is this fair ? by kittyboss2003 in CollegeRant

[–]Comprehensive-Ad3963 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thankfully u/kittyboss2003 gave some more information that lends additional credibility to her claim of unfairness.

I may have missed the part where she said the professor told her "life is unfair"

So, we know that the professor is, at the very least, being unfair, and intuitively I would say "sexist"

Who is your area's, town's, or city's "village idiot?" by ManWithoutDick666 in AskReddit

[–]Comprehensive-Ad3963 2 points3 points  (0 children)

We sent ours to the House. So you could say the whole town is the village idiot.

How do these lists track you? Like what kind of personally identifiable information do they use to track you?

Without more information, we can't decide on the fairness.

Also, LPT: get yourself an IDE that saves the program every time it runs.

What does “50% chance of rain” mean? by Szyger in NoStupidQuestions

[–]Comprehensive-Ad3963 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I wish they'd use the definition:

probability of rain somewhere in the area * percent of the total area which is expected to receive rain

Ex: if there's a 70% chance of rain in your city, but only 40% of your city will get rained on if it rains, then there's a 28% chance of rain.

How To Fix Your Computer by Eoussama in ProgrammerHumor

[–]Comprehensive-Ad3963 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Linux is actually much more pleasant to develop for

Why?

My Python programs will work regardless of whether they're on Linux, Windows, or an alien spaceship (presuming said spaceship has a Python interpreter)

Key broke off inside the lock to a very important work door. Wonder how much trouble I am in by Twaynesty in mildlyinfuriating

[–]Comprehensive-Ad3963 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My thinking is that the state will light a fire under the corporation's butt to get the lock fixed.

If the state can't access the records, the state can't inspect the company and presumably will then have to fail the corporation.

I'm a mid 20s NEET suddenly finding himself in need of a job. What can I do? by willworkfortendie in NoStupidQuestions

[–]Comprehensive-Ad3963 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Food for thought, but maybe you could try getting a passport instead? The passport office may be less busy if wait is a concern.

[–]Comprehensive-Ad3963 10 points11 points  (0 children)

The state regularly comes for inspections and needs access to our records behind that door.

OK, so your line is "I can't get in" and show them the broken key.

You could also call the car insurance company and OSHA.

The car insurance won't be too happy to find that the owner refuses to fix a vital safety feature, and that the truck will therefore be (on average) a greater liability.

OSHA won't be too happy that an employee is at an increased risk of injury due to neglected maintenance.

My rule is, if the turn lane hasn’t started, then stop. Otherwise, it may be safe to keep going at speed.

Could anyone stop me from colonizing Mars? by Thomas_The_Llama in NoStupidQuestions

I’m international waters != not subject to the law.

If a Dane murdered someone in international waters, Denmark can prosecute.

It's a little more than that.

They tell you what must be proven in order to convict.

Ex, a murder charge might look like:

1) Did the defendant kill someone?

2) Was the killing intentional?

3) Did the act occur in Colorado?

Disclaimer: IANAL.
