Very real. I work in remote places where I have to find high ground, stand on my truck, and hold my phone as high as possible just to get SMS in/out. There is no reason to expect there will ever be anymore towers up there, so data or even calls are a no go.

Yep, private 1st class if we work hard after being drafted.

Yep, we started using them for plant pots in addition to general kitchen use after they started piling up and it still doesn’t dent the pile. Only way to go zero waste is to not get them in the first place.

Comitted to helping another person find themself. Not guiding, not shaping, just helping with the only motive being that their life satisfaction increases.

Yeah, I have been there. I’ve spent all of my free time going place to place looking for any work that suited me. Found restaurant work, janitor work, random labor, and finally, while doing combinations of those and volunteer work in my field, something that paid in my field. Just a strategy and how I wanted to live my life. You do you if you see a better path.

In my experience lying doesn’t need to be done at all. I approach jobs/interviews with fit in mind for me. I am not pitching myself just informing them of my skills, work style, etc. Knowing that I am not creating unreasonable expectations of what I can do means that I can be confident on day 1. For me bringing piece of mind is way more important than some job that I wasn’t even qualified for.

It depends on the field and the employer. Some will definitely not do any verification. I wouldn’t go any further than a simple, ‘Yes I have [degree]’ though. Having fraudulent documents made up takes you into a new category of breaking the law. Also, nobody wants your paper records anymore. Anything short of changing the university database and you might as well do it yourself.

Having a degree, I have very little respect for them and don’t even look at it when I am included in hiring decisions especially since requiring degrees perpetuates inequities. Maybe focus on developing the skills for the job you want? That’s what can’t be faked and has actual value.

What kinds of jobs are you looking for? There might be someone here who has good advice for getting one without a degree.

Yeah, afaik it is not widely used by the Spanish speaking community here either unless there is an intersection with queerness and/or English speaking. Also, it is not a new term at all, but it seems to be used more lately.

It is a gender-free alternative for Latino/Latina. In English speaking communities in the US it is pronounced as “latin ex.”

Can confirm for US laptops. They all have ‘wide range’ adaptors.

Whatever you get make sure it is ‘self fertile’ meaning that you don’t need another plant nearby to provide pollen and allow for fruit.

Point taken. It is part of the package you get and most people don’t know that. The ‘get X free with purchase’ thing is just a pet peave of mine. It is basically everywhere in advertising.

More like “Simplelogin is included with proton unlimited subscription.” It is hard for something to be free if you also have to pay to get it. Good marketing but not very honest.

Some do and some don’t. As they redo the roads pullouts are being installed where it is feasible.

You’re right that that that seems to make sense logistically, but then you’d have people cutting in front of a bus to make it to the turn lane. It might actually be safer to place in the turn lane and have the bus pull into traffic.

I have thought a lot about this because they’re the same in my city. My best guess is that you don’t want a driver to try to rush loading to make a green light. The other guess is that there is some advantage to clearing the turn lane as soon as there is a green. It would be especially hard to place before the light if there was a dedicated turn lane. What do you think? Maybe a bus driver would know.

100%, I won’t even believe that they’re going to deliver and especially won’t believe the specs until they have started rolling full production. Way too easy to die at this stage because of “supply costs” or “scaling issues.”

I am rooting for them though - a 1k mile battery option with potential to charge 40 miles a day on solar. Nice!

Pull the battery then microwave the other part. Still metal and sparks though.
