Yes, some kids did it as a joke but didn't realize the pods dissolve in your mouth without eating them. The detergent is super toxic in those concentrations and immediately start eating away at membranes in your mouth and throat.

A moron (what else?) placed a ladder in a pile of frozen cow shit to work on his barn. The next day was much warmer so he went up the ladder to finish the job with the expected results. He sued Lynn Ladder Co. and the jury found in his favor adding another six morons to the "cult of stoopit".

I think all of it. Just like how they put "caution contents are hot" on a coffee cup. Not a single person in the world buys a coffee and doesn't realize it's hot.

edxzxz 11 points ago +14 / -3

OK, 'hot' is one thing, but would you feel that it's reasonable for the drive through window person to hand you an insulated foam cup with a snap on lid that pops off randomly into your car window, and the contents are not just hot, but so hot that if it spilled onto your crotch, you'd need skin grafts and be permanently disabled from the burns? Would you feel bad for the multinational corporation if they lost that lawsuit and had to pay you the profits from coffee sales for one day's worth of coffee sales in one of the multitudes of countries they operate in? Not saying some lawsuits aren't stupid, but people should understand what that hot coffee lawsuit against McDonald's was about before getting all cranked up about it and citing it as an example of stupid lawsuits.

kyblugrass 9 points ago +9 / -0

Basically it was found that McDonalds brewed their coffee and kept it sitting way past scalding temps to help maximize their profits. I can't remember the exact details of the reasoning on it, but it had something to do with stretching the time they could keep a batch of coffee, manipulating how fast people drank it, and quality reason involving flavor. And it was a corporate policy dictated to all franchises.

But what it came down to was because McDonalds used temps way excess necessary for coffee that resulted in an injury, they found them at fault.

Here, allow me to make lots of your time disappear into a black hole! It is actually interesting as far as how different public perception has been compared to what actually happened - some highlights if you don't want to click through and read the whole thing: "Ms. Liebeck suffered third-degree burns on her pelvis and underwent skin grafting. She was hospitalized for eight days. She was partially disabled for two years after the incident, while she received medical attention for her burns. Her pelvis was left permanently disfigured.Ms. Liebeck offered to settle her case for $20,000, which would simply cover her medical expenses at the time. McDonald’s offered her a whopping $800. The case went to trial. The jury awarded Ms. Liebeck $2.8 million dollars, which is the equivalent of two days of coffee sales for McDonald’s. However, Ms. Liebeck would never actually get that money. The court reduced her award to the six figures. Eventually, she settled for something significantly less, as McDonald’s continued to appeal the case. " The reason the coffee burned her so badly was McDonald's sets their coffee machines to keep the coffee way too hot - coffee is normally served at around 140 degrees. This coffee was between 180 and 190 degrees. Basically, that’s hot enough to cause horrible third degree burns. They knew they were serving it at a dangerously high temperature, and had over 700 other people report serious burns because of it over the prior 10 years - but did nothing about that.. https://negrettilaw.com/news/mcdonalds-coffee-lawsuit-facts/

The lady put it between her knees to add cream and sugar and spilled it in the process. What gets me is her grandson had driven her to McDonald's, so he was there with her. The description of the parade of surgeries she endured is gruesome.

SpaceRat 4 points ago +4 / -0

Yes, the McDonald's case was insanely hot. Then they smeared the shit out of her to make her sound like an idiot.

Coffee should be brewed at 180-200 F then you let it cool down. They were serving it to customers at that temperature... Literally gave her 3rd degree burns in her crotch.

Yeah basically Mcdonalds was serving coffee far hotter than it should have been. Its like wanting hot coffee, but they give you a cup of boiling water instead.

2
BadManOrange 2 points ago +2 / -0

I mean, personally I think in general coffee is served way too hot. I guess some people like it so hot that the insides of your mouth melt off, but I'm usually forced to wait like 5 minutes before I can take a sip. That's partly why I drink espresso (which cools off faster since it's less liquid) or milk based drinks (which are usually served at around 140-150°). At worst, I add some milk to black coffee so I can drink it more quickly.

Either way, no, I don't feel bad for corporations for losing money in lawsuits and sure I'd rather companies take steps to fix their crappy cups rather than just putting a warning that it's hot to cover their asses, but our dumb legal system says that putting a cheap ass warning label to tell you that it's hot is good enough. It's still an example of a lawsuit that led to stupid crap like saying a cup of coffee is hot.

The command prompt isn't a great example as anyone that's used Linux can attest to. The person that coded that sometimes has a very interesting idea of what the "correct" syntax is and codes it to only recognize certain strings when that's not how the majority would think.

Programmers live in their own world half the time and that causes so many weird quirks in how you need to interact with things and it's why most programmers make UI that to most people here would look and operate for them like trash because it's made for one specific mindset not to actually be functional outside of that.

3
Aries_cz 3 points ago +3 / -0

Am programmer, and work with programmers, can attest to this.

What we think is perfectly logical UI baffles our less tech-oriented colleagues (sales people, etc).

Work is reverse as well, a lot of the stuff that comes from our design department seems way too "fancy" and "not really usable" to us (big buttons, less items visible per page, etc).


Command prompt takes a bit of time to get used to and learn few basic commands, but after that, it is really easy these days, you have (usually) very helpful help for every command available, etc...

1
VoidWanderer 1 point ago +1 / -0

The only reason this type of thing is fresh in my head is that we've been moving the staff on one of the projects over to Mint as we're not going to bother with win11.

They have had no end of troubles with the terminal. One of the examples, and one I used on the other guy, was that one kept trying to use things like "end" or "close" to end a program that wasn't working properly. (VLC did it's normal crap out and stick onto the task bar and wouldn't go away) When I told him to try "killall" he didn't understand why that was the command when "end" or "endall" was more understandable to end a program.

It's not that there aren't guides out there or even tips to help people learn built right in. It's that the chosen commands are not the commands most people would think to use because some of them flat out don't make sense to someone not familiar with the structure of the OS, like "sudo". It's the same issue as the UI, just another form. What makes sense to a programmer does not translate to the end user and it leads to issues.

1
Aries_cz 1 point ago +1 / -0

True, some of the commands seem illogical, but as said in the other thread, there is GUI for system monitor on Ubuntu, and I am pretty sure it is even on Mint (did not play with that distro for quite few years, most of my Linux needs can be handled through WSL, so no idea).

However, a BFU arguing that "endall" is more logical, that is not really an argument, that is simply not how the thing works. Would it be more logical if my car started on its own and preheat itself in winter? Absolutely. Does it do that? Sadly no, because it was not designed that way (I am aware there are cars than can do that, but not mine)

And if they are adamant about that, you can always set up aliases for them (a bit dumb, but if the user is dumb, then what can you do?)

1
VoidWanderer 1 point ago +1 / -0

However, a BFU arguing that "endall" is more logical, that is not really an argument, that is simply not how the thing works.

The terminology doesn't match with common thought is what I was saying and what he brought up to me. To most people when you say "end a program", they think "oh, it's going to close." Most people aren't going to think "I need to kill the program" to make it close when it's not behaving properly. That is where the difference comes in.

A command to terminate a program can be coded to use any syntax the original coder wants. In this case Linus chose "kill", not "end" and as such we have to use variants of "kill". That is not what a normal person would think to use and is an example of how programmers do not always think like a normal person. Your car analogy is also a great example of that because you went way off base to something that made sense in your head, because to you "well that's not how it was designed so anyone voicing any criticism isn't logical because that's just not how it was designed". See the loop in your logic?

I have this same uphill battle with people I work with as well. It doesn't matter if something is designed a certain way if the way it was designed doesn't make sense to the end user.

Related: don't try to use "killall" on solaris thinking it's the same program as on linux. It's not. It just does what the file name says, and it doesn't give a shit if it's a live production box. Ask me how I know.

Dude... Linux is fucking brilliant and downright ELEGANT in its design and power.

If by "elegant" you mean, "a clusterfuck that is layers upon layers of things made by a bunch of people all with different ideas pulling it in different directions leading to nonsense and issues?" Sure. You'd be right. Linux is not some masterpiece that's a grand achievement. The only reason people like you love it is because it's requires just enough knowledge to use that it keeps the masses away from it. That doesn't make it better, it just makes you seem like the same douches that praise darksouls or rick and morty.

The syntax for commands had a great deal of foresight put into them and have been used for many decades.

By a group of people that are lost in their own world, some of whom are certifiable and are unable to function in the real world due to crippling mental issues. Most of the people I work with make the Qtards here look normal and the vax shills on twitter seem downright sane. There's a reason when I mention that I'm a coder people are shocked because I'm not what most people who code look and act like.

No one wants to type out “change directory” when you can just type “cd”.

That's not even close to what I'm talking about. "End" or "Close" versus "Kill" is what I'm talking about. Stop shilling for the OS and actually pull your head out of your ass to think about what I wrote.

It’s time to grow up and learn the command prompt.

I've known how to use it and have used it since DOS was a thing. I'm a coder. I'm typing this sitting at a desktop running a distro of Linux. My point is that it's a clusterfuck and one of the main reasons why OS' like windows remain prominent despite having other glaring issues. It's not built for most people to use. It was one man's passion project that only got to where it is now because it's free and other people latched on to expand it. If it wasn't for that servers would be using a different base and Linux would be relegated to the dustbin.

Coincidentally you didn't even bother to try and address my point about UI because you know that it would make it very obvious you're up your own ass about things.

FWIW, most modern and popular Linux distros do not even require you to open bash, and everything a normie needs can be done from GUI.

1
VoidWanderer 1 point ago +2 / -1

everything a normie needs can be done from GUI.

Until something breaks, like VLC has a habit of doing, requiring you to kill it through the terminal.

Or you want to use something like Wine or another program where the developers don't actually upload current versions to the software manager repo and you need them so you need to go through the steps requiring the terminal.

Or something breaks and someone else asks you to post what a specific terminal return gives.

No, everything a normie needs to do cannot be done through the GUI unless the only thing you're doing is browsing facebook, youtube, checking your email, and maybe using something like skype. An 80 year old could handle just using the GUI, but anyone else that actually does anything with their computer will need to dig into the terminal more often than they think.

1
Aries_cz 1 point ago +1 / -0

By normies, I am thinking exactly that - browsing web, checking email, writing in text editor, occasionally watching a video (though these days, VLC and other media players are getting less and less use, you have people either watching online, using Plex, Kodi, etc), etc. (you know, basic office work)

And to my knowledge, Ubuntu has GUI System Monitor, which works very similar to what Task Manager does on Windows, if you need to kill a process forcefully.

I used it just fine, and my bet is so did you even if you didn't realize it. The problem was that most computers at the time weren't actually capable of running it well leading to all sorts of issues. If you ever used Windows 7 you used a slightly different version of Windows Vista and, surprise, most people actually liked that version because by then hardware had caught up to what was needed to run it properly.

I think it's less indicative of collective IQ, and more indicative of a litigious legal system. 50 years ago if you drank the battery acid people would laugh at you and call you an idiot. Now a days, if you drink the battery acid, some ambulance chasing lawyer would figure out that it didn't say you couldn't do that in the owner's manual, so they would argue in court that the manufacturer is legally responsible for the fallout of you drinking the battery acid because it didn't say you couldn't in the owner's manual, and that lawyer would get his payday.

So, less about collective intelligence, and more about companies covering their asses from litigation.

Boomers are the ones who dumbed down the generations they presided over to such an atrocious degree.

Between helicopter parenting, the complete lobotomization of public schools, the way in which they manage their companies and a million other things, they've completely incapacitated the children that they were supposed to raise to be independently living, critically thinking, emotionally mature, self sufficient adults.

Boomers are the generation that popularized lawfare, 50% divorce rates, working mothers, single parent households, dual income households, electronic babysitting, and "no tolerance" bullying and harassment policies.

Boomers did such an abysmal job raising their kids, it's no wonder nobody's capable of abstract thought.

Every boomer you've ever met was the hardest working, most principled person to ever exist. Mind you, as a middle of the pack millennial (in terms of age), millennials have tons of issues, but I hardly think we're the scourge boomers paint us to be.

Hilariously enough, my boomer parents actually ARE two of the hardest working, most principled people I've ever met. They put off personal gratification to their own detriment and continue to do so even in retirement. I love you, Mom and Dad.

  • China is smuggling billions of dollars of fentanyl across our borders to get our population addicted to opiates.

  • China is smuggling counterfeits across the border to destroy our economy.

  • China is funding the migrant hordes to infiltrate our borders.

  • China is buying ads and propaganda pieces in the NYT, WaPo, LA Times and other liberal media outlets to push their agendas here in the US.

  • China has CCP agents working full time here, on reddit, facebook and all social media to push communist propaganda.

  • China is devaluing their currency to make labor cheaper to steal our manufacturing.

  • China's early CCP leaders swore to exterminate the white race and built that agenda into the founding of the CCP.

  • China is obviously funding the LGBT shit as they've accused Korea of 'feminizing' their males with gay pop stars. If they're accusing an enemy of it... it means they recognize the type of warfare going on and are actively defending against it. Not conclusive, but still it's obvious to anyone paying attention.

I know there's more I just can't think of them off the top of my head.

Of course there's Chinese NGO's and George Soros's. They're the people leading the government. The CCP is everything you described above.

Isn't that just business though?

Absolutely not. The US and UK are being specifically targeted by the CCP. These substances are extremely addictive. It's not an accident they chose to smuggle in (through the Mexico border) the most addictive substance and are producing it at levels barely profitable to the point where they're almost "giving" it away to the Mexican cartels. This is not "business", it's chemical warfare. Gordon Chang, US foreign relations diplomat - "“What the Party wants to do is weaken the United States, and they want to kill Americans,” Gordon says. “We should look at those 53,000 or so Americans who died last year from fentanyl as murdered by the Chinese Communist Party.”

China is smuggling counterfeits across the border to destroy our economy.

Not only counterfeit dollars, but merchandise too. They ship over pallets of single dollar bills. Nobody has ever counterfeit singles because the risk/reward is not nearly high enough. Only someone intent on destroying our economy would do such a thing. The counterfeit merchandise & gold/silver hurts our producers and/or puts them out of business.

displacing whites with immigrants

Although the source says Venezuela and other leftist groups in South America were funding the migrant hordes, almost all of these leftist countries down there have had their economies and governments bailed out by the Chinese gov through bond purchases. They're literally only still in existence because of Chinese subsidies and do whatever the Chinese gov tells them.

What agendas? What do they want?

The agenda is pretty much all the same as the other liberal and communist policies. Shut down the oil pipelines in the US, allow non citizens to vote, Tawain is not a country, BLM, etc. We are at war with Communists, not just one group or race.

Mostly they just want to promote a favorable view of China

They have infiltrated our top government officials. Feinsteins driver of 10 years, Swallwells sex partner, McConnells wife. They have infiltrated our companies and are stealing technology. They are suing companies that wont hire Chinese nationals (Tesla). They are walking around making favorable views of China. They're working in our companies in middle management and intentionally mismanaging things to slow down commerce. They're stealing military intel. They're hacking our infrastructure. They're everywhere, at every level doing things as benign as making a favorable view of the CCP to stealing military intel and everything else in between.

Didn't they already do that 60 years ago? It's still economic warfare. Just because it was done a long time ago doesn't mean it's all of a sudden ok. We're not addicted to it, it's an intentional international effort to make China the manufacturing arm of the NWO as can be seen by shit like the Biden/G7 countries trying to implement a global corporate minimum tax except for China.

Exterminate the white race

Yan Fu, the intellectual who translated Darwin and the founder of Darwinian thought which almost all current Chinese thought stems from wrote "The weak are devoured by the strong, stupid enslaved by the wise, so that, in the end, those who survive... are most fit for their time and all members of an inferior race must be devoured by a superior one." China's modern founding father Sun Yat-sen based the early CCP's programs explicitly on racial survival. Sun said China's struggle against foreign powers is a form of resistance against the threat of "racial extinction" by the white race, which sought to subjugate or even obliterate the yellow race.

Mao concluded that only two races, the yellow and the white, formed the future struggle of mankind. And only one would survive as Mao used to say from his favorite book that he carried everywhere with him, The General Mirror for the Aid of Government, "There can not be two suns". Only one sun can exist. All nature is hierarchy and only one sits at the top.

All sources for everything said there can be found in The Hundred Year Marathon by Michael Pillsbury (ex-US intel)

I think you're too fixated on a single group. There are many Communist groups trying to destroy us right now. The only problem is that Chinese are intent on destroying the survivors after they've taken us down. It's classic communism. They destroy the capitalist societies, then eliminate each other to become the supreme rulers.

These EU cucks believe the Chinese will remain as the slave labor manufacturing arm of the NWO. They will not. And they will destroy the EU and communist fags that have worked to destroy our society once we are gone.

They're goal is complete and total global control by 2049. And they will destroy every group after we're gone.

Just as a data point, you might be interested in this speech from 2003: https://jrnyquist.blog/2019/09/11/the-secret-speech-of-general-chi-haotian/

tl;dr: The Chinese want more living space, and they envy the United States, Canada, etc. for not having wrecked our natural environments. If this speech is genuine, they want to kill 100-200 million Americans in a sneak biological attack that instantaneously destroys our ability to launch any military defense or counterattack. Then they plan to colonize not only North America but Australia and Europe.

I still find the globalist oligarchs to be the larger threat, but the CCP is a deadly serious enemy.

Computers were similar. You'd get this manual that would tell you how to adjust pins and choose your own interrupt request line and there'd be all these dip switch configurations on the hardware. A lot of that is auto resolved in software now, but it was just a different time. I remember getting a motherboard that came with schematics so you knew which chip did what and you could remove and change the chips, some of which were soldered on and others that were just in DIP-sockets. Sometimes, I miss those days (even though they were a total headache.)

I once traveled with my boomer grandfather. I don’t think he ever finished high school. But he navigated with a map and mentally calculated (not estimated) time and fuel consumption. It’s Y miles and Z hours to X, but we only have enough fuel for W, so let’s find one more stop. Boomers might not know how to program their remote, but they can hold and process more pieces of data mentally than the smart phone generation.

As much as I love making fun of idiots, this is stupid. They put warning labels to not drink the contents of the battery acid because the generation who had valve adjustments in their car manuals were drinking the contents, not babies who couldn't read a manual.
