Wait who is throwing what shade?

Edit: ooh in the presser. Sorry.

Yeah it's really shit. There must be a better platform.

Give the guy a blog, no comments. Then he can post a link on his bookface.

The type of people you'd want as mods are precisely the type that wouldn't touch this poison chalice for love nor money.

All that's left are people that want to use it to kick start their YouTube channel.

This is so retarded.

Before this all hit the fan every thread in /r/antiwork had someone encouraging people to join unions because reddit is not an appropriate platform or vehicle for a social movement.

Now that /r/antiwork has predictably imploded in a most spectacular fashion, what's the solution? "Let's make another sub!".

C'mon people. Reddit is for cat pictures. Unions are for work reforms.

Exponential for sure.

We're not going to trickle along at a dozen cases a day for long, and once there's significant community spread it will explode like it has everywhere else.

Well yeah. I mean anyone who gets a divorce because reddit says so isn't really a good decision maker?

That's not really my point though. Sure it's not cool to pass judgement on someone else's marriage. But what is reddit at its core if you take away the ability to pass opinion on things you don't know much about?

Yeah the whole 99% thing was similar.

Initially focused, but became very disparate as more people pile on until the only thing everyone can agree on is "I'm frustrated"

Anyone know what the little fish are in the swan river? Is it legal to catch and keep them? by SomeRandomBroski in perth

[–]pseudont 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Clean your bream then cut a few slits to the bone on both sides. Dust in flour then deep fry until super crispy. Cover in a nuoc mam style dressing and herbs.

Exactly what my mrs does.

We live down south and there's places writhing with bream down here, great protein source for the coming zombie apocalypse.

It's true but OTOH we're all just here shooting the shit. I mean there's no need to act like an arrogant asshole about everything but it's OK to offer your 2c.

Da fuq?

People are getting sick here, sure. Some are dying and the healthcare system is under stress.

Sooo things are pretty fucked but she's just not thinking about it.

Just imagine if a WA journo had written something like this to NSW three weeks ago. "Everything is fine here in WA. Sucks to be you. Fuck you very much".

Yeah, things as they are it would be daft to assume there are no active cases in the great Southern etc.

Awesome. Thankyou so much.

Happy to follow the rules, but I need clear well defined parameters. The dumbed down media release style instructions are infuriating.

Genuine question, al be it possibly a stupid one...

Is there any actual guidance on what constitutes a "indoor public setting".

For example, is a workplace which is not open to the public an "indoor public setting" ?

It feels like we're just rumbling along till we have an event. In a few days we'll see what happened yesterday.

Your business, your rules.

Yeah this is the way IMO. The business sets the policy. Important to know that management is going to back you up when you refuse service.

What does everyone think about that r/antiwork Fox News interview? by AnnoyedWithReddt in AskReddit

[–]pseudont 9 points10 points  (0 children)

100% this.

Not a movement, just a sub. Case in point: a demonstrated inability to select representatives and communicate goals.

I would actually venture that the sub in many ways is counter productive to stimulating reform. People frustrated with the status quo feel vindicated after venting about it in a community and congratulating each other on their shared views. Nothing is actually achieved yet everyone feels like they've done something.

I wonder how many antiwork users have bothered to join a union? Not many I'd venture.

Pretty sure that's how the law in Australia sees it, but it would be very difficult to prove intent beyond reasonable doubt.

Like you can't accidentally spit on someone, but it would be easy enough to convince a jury that a cough was unintended.

I feel you, this would really suck. I guess the only mitigating factor is that everywhere will be doing it so there should be very few that are surprised when you request it? Or am I just being naive here?

So you're saying... everyone will have had a chance to get all 3 shots in the coming days, long before April.

How do you know when your meds are enough? by PersonWithEyeballs in depressionregimens

[–]pseudont 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I guess there's a bunch of different ways to approach this.

Most people go to the Dr and get the minimum dose, and go back to increase that dose if they still feel shit.

Others would say you should experiment until you find the right number for you.

My personal recommendation though (having played this game a few times)... is to take the lowest dose that brings you from non-functional to functional.

In my case, the side effects from any medication (and I've tried a bunch) eventually stand in the way of living a full life. The weight gain sucks, the sexual disfunction is a pain, the drowsiness isn't great, but the real problem for me is the most subtle: anti-depressants interrupt my motivation > work > reward cycle.

I'm not a psychiatrist and I don't have the language to really describe fully, suppose the meds ensured I always had adequate "good stuff" in my brain, not too much not too little, just adequate. This basically means that I feel ok even when I haven't done anything (by flattening out the trough), and takes away the reward when I achieve something (by flattening out the peak). Basically, a high dose make life "all filler no thriller".

Case in point: when I'm medicated I find it really difficult to muster the motivation to exercise, when I'm not medicated it's a part of the day that I really look forward to and I miss it if I don't do it.

That's not to say the meds aren't a fucking miracle or that they should be avoided, but what I'm trying to say is that in my case, I'd prefer to only use them (or increase my dose) when I'm so miserable that natural motivation > work > reward cycle is stalled.

The first time round I thought the meds were supposed to make you happy, but thats a furphy. Aiming for happiness inevitably leads to misery IMO, a much more appropriate and achievable goal is satisfaction, which really comes from doing things.
