Sure, I don't mind telling those patrons what to do. (But if they have a computer at their work, they probably should just leave it alone plz)

It's the STUDENT ones (or just the younger ones that are just about my age, or slightly older) that make me shake my head at their lack of computer knowledge.

i use sarcasm alot and i think it's not killing comedy but evolving it, in due time the definition of comedy will change to morph the current standard meta-joke that everyone is catching on to and normal word plays will become unfunny to anyone in the meta, i enjoy some tik tok clips so that's an example.

controversial opinion: it's ok to use humiliation when arguing against people with closed mind sets.

regarding knowing computers.. my brother majored in health science, and like, he had one class that had to use some shit called SAS, statistical analysis software, and like hes baaaaad with computers

it was bullshit, like, he nearly failed because of that course, I used to go with him to all his labs and stuff and help him with it.

in my opinion, some people are just bad with computers, it doesnt mean that theyre dumb, its just that they havent spent the time etc with it. The fact that my bro almost failed because of it upsets me greatly

it's not really about like, weather-type small talk; it's more like, estimating the level of care someone is putting in when they ask something like "how are you" or have thoughts about plans like "we should totally catch up sometime". it's pretty easy to say both of those things and not care about the response they generate, so my goal is to like, not make people have to care when it's not what they're saying up for

countries/states should ban video games more aggressively and/or require publishers to suspend operations until there's no question about those games' compliance with laws

in a bunch of places, education is only compulsory to a certain age, and those places could probably do better with awareness of that. where i went to (public) school it's something fucking ridiculous like finishing 9th gr/being 18 which is way over most literacy minima. obv education has bigger issues but this seems like it could be a line to ease some pressure on current systems

i don't believe that the guy who re-derived the trapezoid method seriously didn't already know it existed

I'll revise my statement:
Sarcasm is overrated and/or overused

Would he have done better doing the calculations by hand? Because I had to do that for a stats class that was offered by the stats department. I'm glad I did actually, I opted into that "harder" class because I learned the stats then. Personally the stats offered by the non-math department WAS shit and hard because they dumbed it down, plugged things into a spreadsheet only, and it didn't make sense to me either.
