Only one example of why I hide my name at work.

EDIT: My supervisor was not happy with the response from the T1 agent’s supervisor, so he went to the department manager, and said he would go to HR himself if the manager did not satisfactorily resolve the issue. It is unlikely I will hear much more.

I work in tier two technical support on email exchange servers.
Today I was reminded why I changed my display name from my full first name to my first initial.

I asked a Tier 1 agent to take some basic troubleshooting steps with the customer.

T1: my client is a lady and doesn't know how to do much.
ME: What does one have to do with the other?
T1: Ladies do not know anything with computers. Us men are the ones that should do this stuff.
ME: What makes you think I am a man?
T1: Aren't you?
ME: No.
T1: =ends chat with a comment in the survey that women should be in the home and not working tech=

Joke's on him. I have worked from home for the last 2+ years.

Obviously I flagged that chat for a review. My boss is absolutely going to love having a talk with this guys supervisor when he gets into the office tomorrow.

EM uses me as an example to her kid about me being a "sheep" because I'm wearing a mask.

I was going to the grocery store to get some ingredients to make a homemade pizza. I get out of my car, put on my mask, go in HEB (grocery store in Texas) and grab a cart.

I went to get all the stuff I need plus some additional items to snack on. I went to the dairy aisle to grab milk. And that's when I see EM and her kid.

The lady looked around 35 years old, her kid was in the cart watching elsagate crap on what I assume is her phone. Herself and her son were not wearing masks.

I mind my own business grabbing the milk jug and go to self-checkout. It wasn't until I saw EM take the phone out of the kids hands and see her hold her phone up like she's recording me.

I quickly try to get away from her but she kept following me around the store. It wasn't until I heard her say to her kid about how "I am a sheep bowing to the "communist democrats" and "Wearing his dumb mask".

I turned around and told her why was she was following me and she doesn't respond. I told her to fuck off and just minded my own business.

Left the store, put the grocery bags in the trunk, and noticed her drive away in her black suburban.

TL;DR: Went to the store, lady follows me around telling her kid how I was a sheep, told her to stop and left.

PS: The pizza turned out to be delicious and crispy. It made me think how many idiots live on this earth during this pandemic.

One of the best examples of foreshadowing

I'm on my yearly reread of the series and I just thought I'd share one of my favourite hints dropped in The Chamber of Secrets:

Harry: "...I wouldn't mind knowing how Riddle got an award for special services to Hogwarts, either."

"Could've been anything," said Ron. "Maybe he got thirty O.W.Ls or saved a teacher from the giant squid. Maybe he murdered Myrtle, that would've done everyone a favour..."

And there we have it, folks! Ron is the genius who figured it all out, and the book could have ended there but then Harry wouldn't get all the credit.

But, seriously, it's just a little throw away line that, when you first read it, you take as a classic Ron's-being-an-insensitive-ass-again joke but its actually the crux of the entire book: Riddle using the Basilisk to purge the school and being the murderer that Ron so flippantly accuses him of. Maybe Ron should have actually tried harder in Divination. He may have had a future ahead of him in the field!

Bungie, the final chest in the DSC raid is a perfect example of how to mitigate bad luck and I think you should bring that concept into ALL activities.

For those that don't know, at the end of the Deep Stone Crypt raid the final chest acts as a vendor of sorts. Within the vendor menu you have 4 chests at the top that can randomly drop any piece of loot from any of the encounters in the raid. For example, let's say you can't get the helmet to drop from the encounter that drops the helmet, if you select the "helmet chest" at the vendor then you have a chance at the helmet to drop again.

The thing I really like about this concept though is that after you have acquired all of the gear from the raid the previously mentioned chests become disabled and you can pick any piece of gear in the raid for a random roll.

I think this concept should be added to every activity in the game, including "high skill" and pvp activities.

Even gatcha games have bad luck protection and this concept would be one of the better ways for it to work in destiny.

TL;DR: Bungie, you did a great thing with the final chest in the DSC raid, please carry that vendor function over to ALL activities.

The Expanse sets an example of how to write women in fiction

I've been thinking lately that of the many shows I watch, The Expanse is one of the shows that consistently write women the best. Of course, there has been other current shows written by female writers that do it amazingly, but The Expanse is not necessarily a show were I would have expected such amazingly written female characters.

What I love about it, is that the show doesn't need to lampshade it like "Look we've kicking ass women, we are WOKE". It just happens naturally by simply giving its female characters ... agency. Avasarala, Drummer, Bobbie and Naomi all have their own way of dealing with situations and move the plot foward on their own way. They are actively doing stuff and not everything gets done just because Holden saved the day (well, Holden still gets most of the credit, but we know that Holden alone wouldn't get much done lol).

I am not completely pleased with Naomis current plot, but I do love the fact that girl was just like "Look darling, I've got personal shit to deal with and I need you to be supportive and deal with whatever problem arise while I am gone" without putting her relationship with Holden first.

Again, all it takes to write "complex" female characters is giving them their own set of skills, worldviews, ambitions and goals. Letting them act accordinly to who they are and not just blindly on behalf of default heroic male character...

Who would have thought that to write excellent female characters all you need to do is write women like real people?

Really just came here to say that! It's a brilliant game, and one of the keys to success (in my personal opinion) is the choice of programming language, being C++. This game is clearly extremely well optimised and it shows that the C family of programming languages is still an essential part of computer science. Again all my personal opinion!

The motel scene from No Country For Old Men is a great example of characters behaving smartly but still not succeeding

While most movies show characters behaving stupidly when they want to show them suffering setbacks or pulling off impractical plans to succeed, this scene shows a bunch of characters doing everything within their power after putting some thought into it to mixed results.

Llewellyn considers the possibility that someone might ambush him in his room, and makes a plan to retrieve his stash from another room. Even then, he ensures he doesn't take the very adjacent room. When returning to his room, he asks the driver to drive by the rooms to check if his blinds were closed in the exact manner he left them in, taking the fact that they are not as a sign that someone was either there or had been there.

Now, what does Anton do when he arrives at the motel? He takes the room adjacent to Llewellyn's, studies it and then plans his assault accordingly.

Yet, both men succeed only partially- Anton does kill the mexicans and confirm he is hot on Llewellyn's tale but misses Llewellyn himself, and Llewellyn does evade Anton and run away with the money but he still doesn't figure out that the money stack has a transponder in it just giving his location away.

Sure, there are still a lot of 'filmy' things going on, stuff that just would have to happen perfectly at the right time and place, but it was honestly refreshing to see this sort of an approach being taken to storytelling, which doesn't rely on cartoon universe probabilities or characters behaving in a dumb manner for things to happen.

Example cost of living in Toronto during the pandemic as a single

For anyone who's planning to move to Toronto or curious to see how they stack with others, here's my spending data over the past year (2020) and the four years prior.

TL;DR: you need at least 40k net (52k gross) to live by yourself and have some extras on hobbies/fun, while saving nothing (which I would not recommend!) This is 4k lower than last year, because housing (rents) came down hard and all the expensive entertainment is closed. However, groceries went up by quite a bit so I'm not spending less on food even though I ate out less.

I live alone and have uncomplicated tastes. I bought a condo in 2017 and rented prior to that; the location allows me to remain car-free, using Communauto when I need some wheels. I do not make an effort to be particularly frugal.

Everyone's situation is different; more than anything, your mileage may vary on any money issues. But it would be interesting to see similar breakdowns from others, figure out where I might be overspending, figure out where I could be allocating more. Feel free to ask any questions.

There is a market rent comparison since my housing costs no longer accurately represent the situation of someone who just moved to town. At market conditions, it definitely pays to rent in Toronto in 2020.

Discussions from 2019 (TO, PFC), 2018, 2017, 2016

A few other cost of living threads from the past year:

Also, this year marks a 5-year streak doing this yearly post! As long as the discussion is interesting, I'm happy to keep the series alive.

Are there any historical examples of stocks behaving similarly to TSLA for such a long time?

I think (most) people would agree that TSLA is largely overvalued right now and has been for some time. But unlike typical bubble examples, TSLA's price has never really burst like a lot of people expected, and continues to look strong. I'm curious, are there other stocks that were historically similar to this (ie., orders of magnitude overvalued for years), and did they ultimately grow into their valuation over time, or did they eventually see a bubble burst? Would appreciate specific examples if you have any, thanks!
