Draw your own conculsions
  • Expectations are a lot different for high schoolers than adults in their 20s. I absolutely got rejected quite a bit in my 20s for living with my parents. Not by everyone but it was common. My 20s mostly came after the 2008 collapse, coincidentally or not.

    This is in the US by the way and I’m sure it’s a cultural thing. In many countries, living with your parents until you’re financially stable or married is normal.

  • Starfield's New Maps Are Great, But Boy Those Cities Are Tiny
  • I actually felt like I had to suspend disbelief a lot more in Skyrim than Witcher. Witcher at least felt believable, but then I go to the “Cloud District” in Whiterun and it’s the size of some guy’s porch. It just made the world a bit hard to take seriously. I’m not saying that Skyrim is a bad game, I enjoyed the hell out of it, but I definitely preferred Novigrad to anything in Skyrim. Still plenty of places to go in Witcher.

    Also from what I understand, Witcher had hundreds of people working in it, but Bethesda still sticks to a fairly small team size, which I’m not convinced can be competitive in a AAA space after seeing starfield

  • Americans Are Open To Cheap Chinese Cars. That’s 'Scary' For The Rest Of The Auto Industry
  • Most of rural America wasn’t served at all, you had to travel to a town with a train station. For smaller towns, no lines were ever built. It’s a completely unrealistic idea. It also doesn’t address the issue of local transport.

  • The Perception Paradox: Men Who Hate Feminists Think Feminists Hate Men
  • Bro, let’s stop pretending that men are in the driver’s seat for women’s behavior. They are grown adults. I’m not saying you’re all wrong, this kind of behavior is often understandable. Having said that, lot of the toxicity I see has nothing to do with men’s actions, it’s just people bullying other people and getting a dopamine rush from it.

    Stuff like saying how stupid and simple minded the male mind is in a story about boys underperforming girls in school. Things that are rooted in resentment but not directly tied to any asshole in particular, and wouldn’t be considered acceptable if they were flipped the other way around. Another one I saw recently was that men should be subjected to genital mutilation so they know what it’s like (which is a good one considering how normalized circumcision is). Cruelty for the sake of cruelty. Does it come from resentment? Maybe, but since when was it appropriate behavior to take our grievances out on everyone?

    What I’m saying is that there’s a lot of genuine bullying out there that can’t be justified as a reaction to others.

    Grownups of all genders aren’t taking responsibility for things they say. It’s like everyone’s turning into their own little Donald trump and can say whatever fucked shit that’s on their mind, and their in-group immediately validates, excuses and reinforces it.

  • The Perception Paradox: Men Who Hate Feminists Think Feminists Hate Men
  • What’s happening is not normal or healthy. People are getting more and more detached from each other and more tribalistic. It’s starting to get really scary how people go straight to dehumanizing each other.

  • The Perception Paradox: Men Who Hate Feminists Think Feminists Hate Men
  • Oh please. This stuff has gotten so ridiculous. You have no idea what the person you’re replying to you is like. It’s crazy how people just completely make stuff up to defend women when they’re just being assholes.

  • A shadow of his former self
  • I think flat design makes sense for logos too, for the exact same reason it makes sense for icons. Flat logos are easier to recognize and see, especially from far away.

    I’m not saying this logo great or anything but I don’t think it’s fair to claim that everyone using flat design is just a trend chaser.

  • A shadow of his former self
  • I really like the simplicity of flat design. It makes things easier to find and recognize, especially for icons. Also easier for people with poor eyesight. It caught on for a reason.

    Lemmy loves to shit on designers but there’s no way the designer had the autonomy to come up with this on their own. 100% guaranteed this idea came from marketing or an executive.
