Companies That Don't Understand Engineers Don't Respect Engineers

Nephandus Re:Real people just don't like dealing with Hipste (371 comments)

Professionalism is the ability to do your job. Costuming isn't most people's job. Pretty fucking sure wearing costumes isn't engineering. You're just mindlessly repeating the Newspeak definition of professionalism writing by the sleaze in power who want to stay in power by redefining their sleaziness as professional to either perform, if you're one of them, or obey, as one of their useful idiots.

Excellent then we can all just bring a bowl of M&Ms with the browns removed to the interview to prove our competency and ditch the ugly overpriced uncomfortable clothing. That'll stop the suite sleeze that don't know how to do their actual job from supposedly appearing more "professional" too.

Figuring Out Where To Live Using Math

Nephandus Re: Absurd assertion, you've never lived with humi (213 comments)

When I was 300 lbs. I could carry your average American male adult four blocks. Two with some rigging. Unsurprisingly I didn't care to and would get quite sweaty even in winter. Did you have a point besides being a midget or a stick-man who lacks reading comprehension?

You can't carry useful quantities of groceries, much less anything else, on a bike unless you're anorexic hipster douche who just likes to be seen biking around in public every other day.

Microsoft Tip Leads To Child Porn Arrest In Pennsylvania

Nephandus Re:Trust the Computer. The Computer is your friend (353 comments)

Technically, the actual diagnosis of the pedophilia disorder is explicitly an extreme. Ignoring the public idiot usage extending to attraction to adolescents, the shrinks (of both bibles IIRC) specify that it's only regarded as a disorder if it's nigh exclusive or compelling, so a more general category includes at least some minority of the officially non-pathological "general public".

Considering how general rapists are very rarely those hard up for sex partners, child molesters very probably aren't acting due to mere sexual frustration either. People regularly ignore that parent molesters, as a particularly blatant example, often still have a sexual relationship with the other parent overlapping the molestation, even continuing decades past the end of the molestation period. They weren't just horny...

Ancient Skulls Show Civilization Rose As Testosterone Fell

Nephandus Re:Nonsense in scientific language (387 comments)

My example? The bias in family courts is due to the FEMINIST "tender years" doctrine, which basically rests on female emotion being fucking nature magic, which is still being pushed today. Males are painted as dull aggressors by the feminist lobby as a rule. Your presumption of male emotions, likewise, more befits the feminist doctrine that males need female to tell them how they should feel than any real defense of males. If they get their way, there will be even more sexist laws targeting me and more deluded princesses preaching at me from atop their bloating pretense.

Ancient Skulls Show Civilization Rose As Testosterone Fell

Nephandus Re:Men are obsolete (387 comments)

Funny, when they play their fiddle, the great majority of men proudly dance to their tune. Most men's power is spoken for by another. This was always so. Men tend not to lament they're tools who are too ashamed admit it or so mindfucked to be proud of it.

Nephandus Re:Nonsense in scientific language (387 comments)

Raising awareness it doing something. Feminists have sold so damn much misandric rhetoric as sacrosanct bellyfeel "fact", it's nigh impossible to get taken seriously. Officially, the feminist lobby will openly destroy and demonize any attempt to stop them from pushing more biased laws policies, much less to correct anything already in place.

You do realize domesticated there exactly means sheeplized? Most became proud servants to sleazy incompetents and psychotics. That was always civilization's primary purpose.

Study: Dinosaurs "Shrank" Regularly To Become Birds

Nephandus Re: The Red Queen (138 comments)

Social behavior can often maladaptive. It this case though, I'd imagine if predation became more of an issue the better fighters would suddenly be more attractive...unless they've gone too far down the pacifist path to survive the interim. Well, for the bighorns. Pugilism's primarily useless in similar human cases. Oddly, it can attract women specifically easier to impregnate though. Attraction's rarely an intelligent matter for any species.

Google Spots Explicit Images of a Child In Man's Email, Tips Off Police

Nephandus Re:Chilling not just for scanning email... (790 comments)

They arrest minors for producing self content, and, if they're old enough, charge and jail them as adults. Of course, this has little to nothing to do with protecting "children".

Google Spots Explicit Images of a Child In Man's Email, Tips Off Police

Nephandus Re:Snooping or running hashes? (790 comments)

Considering most holders of CP probably rarely had anything to do with its making, and visual records made by other criminals of their crimes is legal to own and view, it's already primarily thoughtcrime. Most people targeted are even normal. The diagnosis for pedophilia requires an extreme focus of strong attraction relative to any other attraction, and ephibaphilia's not even officially a diagnosis due the explicit rejection of it being either pathological or abnormal. Most so-called "CP" would be "consumed" by ephibaphiles, and it doesn't matter if the "victims" made it themselves for fun, so yeah...very thoughtcrime, very kill-the-icky. "Victims" occasionally are charged and jailed for their own production.

Psychology's Replication Battle

Nephandus Re:Who writes this crap (172 comments)

You do realize that normality is explicitly excluded by definitions of psychosis and privileged in all other cases? They push normality even when it's provably pathological; then, diagnosis any more functional abnormals with a "social disorder" if they don't fit in with the pathological normals. The only time they actually try to change anything mainstream is to fit some political agenda for control and profit.

How Gygax Lost Control of TSR and D&D

Nephandus Re:When going into business with Friends (183 comments)

Ah, the shrinks.. They said I was brilliant and on the best track to a better life possible then asked why I was there. Well, not counting the campus sleaze-bag with busty intern who thought I should emulate him to pick up women... Unsurprisingly, this doesn't change my history or the general reality of families. Seek help yourself, you're delusional, probably violently so. It's normal sadly.
