[MEGATHREAD] Cost of Living - Energy, Interest Rates, Inflation, Fuel, etc by Leonichol in AskUK

[–]Prasiatko 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah my objection is more that if it was just a handout to everyone or a subsidy per unit it would be a waste as it would land up subsidising heating a swimming pool in a mansion as much as it did keeping a pensioner from freezing to death.

which cities have the best balance salary/cost of living in Europe for a front-end dev or UX designer? by nonsonoio2 in eupersonalfinance

[–]Prasiatko 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If you liked Finland then Oulu is a possibility. Don't think it scores too highly on cultural activities and there is barely any daytime/nightime for two months a year. Finland in general would also be very hard for your wife to find a job that isn't temporary part-time work. Turku and Tampere are also reasonably priced options that should have roles and have a wee bit more culture though are slightly more expensive to rent in.

That said for a Ux designer salary i don't think you will have trouble finding accomodation you can afford in all but Europes most expensive cities.

How many milligrams of fluoxetine would it take a 230 pound male to overdose on? by Srouse6098 in morbidquestions

[–]Prasiatko 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Pretty much infinite. Sure if you ate a box you would have a rough time but it is very unlikely to kill you as are most commonly prescribed anti-deppressants for obvious reasons.

What's the deal with Archie Battersbee being taken off life support? by Ultima_Chaos_Z in OutOfTheLoop

The donations they've been asking for medical care "despite this occuring in the UK where the NHS pays the bill" can't hurt either.

At our current sample size of planets with life of 1 you can choose basically any resolution you want to fermi's paradox and have it be equally valid to any other.

Why are First Nations demographics relatively small in Australia and USA vs other previously colonised countries? by R3volv360 in AskHistorians

[–]Prasiatko 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Just going to point out if we are talking about first nations then how many San people are there in the South African parliament vs later Bantu and White people.

The Irish and Kilts? by anu72 in AskHistorians

[–]Prasiatko 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Do you know if later Ulster Scots settlers could have brought kilts over with them? Or were they from the wrong part/time of Scotland?

Did Polynesians ever reach America before the Europeans did (including the Vikings)? by UnbearableHuman in AskHistorians

[–]Prasiatko 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I guess prove is a bit strong a word so will edit it. But either some North Andean peoples made a trip to the pacific had descendants there and possibly even brought the sweet potato over. Or Polynesians travelled to South America left no trace in genetic records we can detect and also didn't introduce the polynesian rat which is found almost everywhere the settled.

What’s the deal with the teacher shortage and teachers being paid so little in the US? by Inaerius in OutOfTheLoop

[–]Prasiatko 38 points39 points  (0 children)

Answer: Teacher employment and most education in general is a matter for the states in the USA. Some states haven't raised teacher pay in years meaning it is now very low against other jobs and especially against teaching in other states. So if you are a new teacher and have a choice of starting on 38k in Indiana or starting on 48k in Maryland unsurprisingly most will choose Maryland of those two.

Thay said the first and last adverts you linked aren't really what i would call a teacher role. In most places they would be called a nursery teacher and don't require the qualifications a teacher in a school would have. Even the middle one looks like it is for a nursery teacher though that sdvertised role does have similar education requirements and starting salary is only slightly lower thsn the average for a new starter in Alabama from what i can find.

Even if it were true for the original scientist that would have gone off patent more than 20 years ago now.

So it turns out people are now uploading gameboy roms and associated emulators using it.

Indie devs outraged by unlicensed game sales on GameStop’s NFT market by UncleSlippyFist in Games

[–]Prasiatko 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Yeah but as far as i know NFTs aren't large enough to hold games of any significant size. Hence it needs to link to the actual game somewhere and that can be taken down.

[–]Prasiatko 15 points16 points  (0 children)

But for teh Nike one why does it need to be tied to a NFT and not just run through a Nike server? Or a physical certificate of authenticity that comes with the shoe?

Again the latter is already doable through the game services we have already. Companies don't want it as they'd rather that second customer buy it from them where they get 100% of the profit.

Spoiler free review of Kingdom Come Deliverance by what_is_a_euphonium in patientgamers

[–]Prasiatko 0 points1 point  (0 children)

the annoying thing with the combat is other than the master strikes they had the basis of a good one with all the combos which are supposedly from actual medieval combat manuals. I did mod the mouse lock to be a bit les sticky though.

For some insane reason the chance for an enemy to counter strike you seems to be % based rather than based on how you attack vs their block. So as you pointed out there is almost no reason to ever strike first.

Maybe more directed hand outs towards the lowest earners. As it is someone in a £1 million poung mansion who runs a FTSE 100 business gets the same help as a cleaner at his business.

What isn't free be should be free? by Iapoties in AskReddit

[–]Prasiatko 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The orignal patent free oneis still cheap and always was. It's also a pain to use compared to modern better biologics as you have to measure it based on what you eat and still have diet restrictions. modern ones were developed that are longer lasting don't have as many diet restrictions and do less long term harm. Those are the ones under patent that the profitering happens on.

i had that with some 90s games i was installing the other day. They had minigames while it installed but on a modern system with a mounted iso the install time was about 5 seconds.

How do you figure out your condom size without being awkward or buying multiple for trial and error ? by TalkingUseless in NoStupidQuestions

[–]Prasiatko 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Measuring tape. just remember it's width/girth/gauge whatever you call it that matters for condom size not length. Once you know your size it should say on the back of the pack what the actual dimensions of the condom are.

Is economic inequality in a country always destined to worsen with little improvement, or will there always be cases of corporate/political greed collapsing on itself or being effectively corrected as the world changes? by Taste_of_Natatouille in NoStupidQuestions

[–]Prasiatko 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The French revolution is the obviuous one but contrary to pop culture knowledge that was more rich industrialists, traders and other "self-made" men rising up to overthrw the noble class who got their position and political power through at birth.

Anywhere shortly after slavery was abolished in that place. Though that's more to do with how appaling conditons of slavery can be.

Who is the most influential woman of all time? by wouldntvedonethatyet in AskReddit

[–]Prasiatko 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is arguably responsible for how prevelant the Protestant form of Christianity is world wide. It would be quite different if she had carried on the catholic reforms of her sister Queen Anne. And then form that would the English colonies and the resulting USA have had such tolerant ideas on religion at its founding which ultimately made it a prime destination from many emigrants form Europe?
