I’m a business major and I get a lot of shit from STEM majors about it. So many of them are arrogant and obnoxious.
If I even complain about one thing related to school like for example “ugh this exam is gonna be so hard”, some random STEM major always has to be like “try being a STEM major where we ACTUALLY have hard classes” or some variation of that.
Like okay I get it, STEM classes are hard. No one is arguing that. I genuinely do have respect for STEM majors bc I understand it is very difficult and requires a lot of sacrifices.
But business is no walk in the park either. My classes are very challenging and time consuming and I work my ass off to get good grades. It’s not like I sit on my ass all day twiddling my thumbs. I actually have to study, do homework, attend office hours, etc just like any normal college student does. I get very stressed out too. I’m not saying I have it HARDER than a STEM major, just that I don’t have it easy.
Also, I go to a pretty reputable business school and live in a major city with great job prospects. I think I’m gonna be just fine after college so it’s really annoying when STEM majors say “lol good luck finding a job with that degree.” Like I know SEVERAL people with business degrees making good money, why do some people assume that anything other than a STEM degree means you’ll be working at McDonald’s?
It’s just annoying to me this superiority complex that so many STEM majors have. You’re not better than me for majoring in STEM, you just have different interests/strengths than me and there’s nothing wrong with that.
It’s like I can’t even feel proud of my accomplishments bc I’m not a STEM major so everyone just assumes that my classes are easy and I don’t have to work for my grades which isn’t true at all. It’s frustrating.
There’s a quote from Philosopher Blaise Pascal which I whole heartedly agree with that says, “All of humanity's problems stem from man's inability to sit quietly in a room alone.” When you take time to just sit and be alone with your thoughts, your mind gets to “purge”. Constantly having noise and other stimulus coming at us causes your mind to not be able to process your thoughts. I personally feel much more anxious and restless when I don’t practice daily mind clearing. Your mileage may vary.
Everyone knows Zhongli is underpowered, the topic have been talked to death so I will just sum it up as Zhongli is not useless, but much weaker than other 5 star. But why does Mihoyo design Zhongli like this?
The reason is simple, because of money. The trend of limited character is to have more and more of their power gated behind constellation, so whale will have more incentives to go for them. It start with Klee, and constellation have been increasingly impactful with every banner. At this point, I see Zhongli is the 5 star with the most power and mechanic gated behind his constellation.
Reviewing 5 Star constellation (you can skip this if you are already convinced about the trend stated above):
The majority of people will only ever able to achieve C0 on Zhongli, so that become the basis for the entire community judgment. At C0 zhongli is weaker than most, but he quickly make up ground with constellation, standing toe to toe, if not better than other full constellation 5 star support at C6. Taking a look at his constellation, we can see that all of them have a much bigger impact comperatively to other 5 star constellation. Example, Lets compare Zhong constelation to some others:
C1: Double the damage and aoe of his tap E, which is double his sub dps capabilities.
C2: Half the cooldown of his shield, since he can now apply shield with 2 skill at 12s cooldown. This doubled his support abilities
C4: 50% more stun duration at Q lv 10. From 4 to 6 seccond. Enemy are stun for 6 second every 12s. 50% more CC
C6: Enable Zhongli Shield to heals for 40% of it's value, so every shield is 40% more sustain, which also is a heal. Eliminate the need for a healer, Zhongli alone can provide enough healing and more dmg than other pure healing support.
Now let's look at some of the base 5 Star, character that everyone can realistically obtain constellation for if they play long enough:
C1: regen 2 energy per E hit on enemy affect by Q.
C2: 15% auto attack damage for QiQi.
C4: 20% reduce attack on enemy affected by Q.
C6: Reviving entire party once every 15 minutes.
C1 +4 offer a chunk of sustain, while C2 give some dps, but nothing major. C6 is great but a 15 minute cooldown make it quite pointless most of the time.
How about Diluc?
C1: 15% damage
C2: 30% damage and 15% ATK SPD
C4: 40% damage for his 2nd and 3rd E
C6: 30% dmg and attack spd for 2 auto attack after every E

I've recently come across this subreddit and have really enjoyed combing through the backlog of posts. One thing I've noticed however is that there are quite a few posts that equate to "I didn't enjoy this universally well-reviewed game. What am I doing wrong?" or worse yet "This well-reviewed game isn't good. This is why everyone else is wrong".
Just scrolling through the last few days, I've seen people mention this about Ghost of Tsushima, Last of Us, Red Dead 2, and even Hades. Needless to say, this is a really common type post on not just this subreddit, but in other gaming, movie, tv, and music subs.
I think the issue is that a lot of people hold up review scores and "general consensus" as if it is some standard that is as objective as scientific fact. So when someone hears that Hades has 97% positive reviews on Steam, and multiple GOTY awards, they think that the game must be objectively good. And if for whatever reason they don't like it, they think that they're in the wrong, or worse, that they're right and everyone else is in the wrong.
I certainly think discussion and critique should absolutely be encouraged, but we can't really have much meaningful discussion can when a critique boils down to "Red Dead Redemption 2 is really slow paced and I don't like that", or "You can't do anything in Flight Simulator but fly around. What's the point?".
In other mediums, especially film, people often complain that professional critics "Can't judge something for what it is", but in reality, critics do a good job at this, while the audience does not. For example, a common sentiment is that people think that the average critic "only cares about high art and not Hollywood blockbusters". But if you look at RT scores for films such as the Avengers franchise, the newer Fast and Furious films, John Wick, you'll notice that even the top end critics will review them favorably. Most of those films have positive scores on RT. This might have been a bit of a tangent, but I think it strikes the heart of the issue:
Good critics meet the product on its level. But many audience members do not.
What I mean by this is that good critics (and hopefully good audience members) review the movie with the context of audience, intent, and genre. That's why a critic like say, Mark Kermode, who's annual top 10 lists feature "high art" films, can still give a generally positive review of a teen adventure movie like the Maze Runner.
A commonly repeated statement on this sub is... keep reading on reddit ➡
I was an undergrad, working part-time in a lab to get experience. I had just started contemplating a masters, maybe a PhD, when a post-doc started in the lab. He was new to the country and I was asked to help him figure out the city (transit, housing, best places to buy food etc.). I was happy to, and cheerful in our interactions, but I guess he took it to be more than that. He started to just... watch me. Our lab benches were across from each other. So often I'd look up and he'd be staring at my chest. Or he'd come around, stand behind me, and comment on how pretty my shirt was, or how lovely my hair was. A casual touch on the shoulder. Seeking me out in the building if I went to work elsewhere. I stopped smiling at him. I completely changed my wardrobe to giant shapeless shirts. I even got brave enough once to tell him a comment made me uncomfortable. And he didn't stop.
I knew I should bring it up with my supervisor, but I didn't feel comfortable talking about it, because there was no one single act or sense of maliciousness or violence. He was just another person who was raised differently. He didn't realise what he was doing was inappropriate. Maybe I was too friendly at the start. All those little justifications that went on in my head. I wanted to think that my supervisor would help me find a solution, but what if he didn't? He'd mentioned before that he thought mental health was a fad. That it was cool to have issues these days. What was to say his stance on sexual harassment would be any different? I was so close to deciding that I didn't want to continue the work. I was considering shifting out of the field.
Some of our work required being in a small dark room. Though nothing overt happened, I always worried something would. But then one day, we had a new undergrad we were training. And he, the post-doc, and myself were all working together. The post-doc made one of his usual comments about how my hair looked so beautiful in the light coming from the machine we were using, and reached out to touch it. And the undergrad just gave him this look of utter disbelief and called him right out on it. "Dude, that is really really creepy. Cut it out." And the post-doc shut right up. I'm not saying he changed. I still mostly avoided him for the rest of his time there, and he still stared. But the realisation that for one guy who was super inappropriate, there was another willing to point it out gave me the courage to stick with it. I don't even remember... keep reading on reddit ➡
Next time you cut broccoli, cut off all the florets & take a big bite of the thick stem section. It’s sweet, juicy and delicious. It doesn’t get caught in your teeth like all the little flowers on each broccoli head & is really quite enjoyable. It sounds weird but it’s def the most flavorful part of the broccoli.
Edit: yikes, my inbox. But super thanks for the awards strangers! Also, to specify, when I say “stem”, I mean the large stalk that you’d cut all of your broccoli off of when buying a broccoli head. And yes, I prefer it raw.
Recently I've been thinking about my class of 2021 trail name and wondering if "Zero Daze The Hibernian Big Miles Lord Of Drunken UL Pinkblazing And Patron Saint Of Safety Meetings" isn't a bit much, and whether or not I should keep it simple with something short but still unique like say, "Strider", "Lord of Dragon's Fire", "Bye Curious", or maybe "Breaks The Wind" instead. Thoughts?

The conversation around gender, especially around "underrepresentation," is the most circlejerkish bullshit I have ever encountered, and it's completely unavoidable. I fucking hate talking about sex and gender, sexism, and throw in racism in there too, because the conversations are literally the exact same thing every single time. It's just a bunch of men and women in a circle talking about how bad women have it at whatever it is they're doing; the women like talking about it because they like being coddled and made feel special, and the men like talking about it because they get to pretend like they the "good guys" talking about how bad everyone else is, and they also get to leave a good impression on the women. That is every single fucking discussion about "systemic sexism" and related subjects and I'm fucking tired of it. I haven't left a single discussion or completed a single assignment on this subject and subjects related to it feeling like I've learned anything or feeling literally any other form of satisfaction, it's just busywork that makes me hate talking about gender and race even more than I already did, and if the goal is to break me so that I become compliant every time anybody tries to tell me what to think about this stuff, then it may be working.
I'm a physics major (in America) and they still find room to push this bullshit into our required curriculum. Yesterday I was required to "gain perspective" on the issue of affirmative action and explain why it plays into the ideas of privilege that this shitty ultra-liberal university forces every student to read about. Affirmative action is literally banned in my state, yet we still are forced to talk about it and pretend like we don't know that it's a terrible thing that was never going to work. They use the excuse of "you just have to learn about other perspectives in order to better understand your point of view," but it sure is convenient that the ONLY perspectives you learn about are ultra-liberal ones that don't fucking work. I haven't been taught a single thing in my education about how to see issues from a conservative point of view or how someone who is against abortion or is for stricter immigration or who thinks that sexism isn't the root of all fucking evil, so obviously this "point of view" justification is absolute bullshit. I'm not even conservative, I hold none of these views, but I've started to think that I only have the views I have because the education system exclusively av... keep reading on reddit ➡
Howdy. As title says I have a 3.4 GPA in a bachelors in mechanical engineering technology (ABET accredited). I also have an electronics certification. Im considering enlisting into the navy with hopes I can get a masters degree in either mechanical or electrical engineering. My relatives say I should consider going officer, but I fear im simply not competitive to get in. Will I regret going enlisted? Could I eventually stand a good chance of being an officer once I am in?
Like I get it that STEM needs more girls. I get it that I could get a ton of scholarships and opportunities. I get it that I'm pretty smart and could do well in it. Lots of my family members are constantly pushing me to do some stem major like engineering when that's basically the furthest thing I want to do. The concept of going to school for four years for that then 50 years of working in the field afterwards makes me wanna shoot myself. Stem is currently SO PUSHED for girls and it feels like it comes at the expense of other subjects.
