The beauty of it is they seem to mix a bench of definitions and forms they don't understand and assume they can mean whatever sounds convenient to them.

They quote dictionaries definitions as if they were legally binding to their interpretation.

Such a mix of abysmal ignorance and supreme confidence is incredible!

At last constant surveillance is deemed a problem, which is why ultra-rich have their privacy protected, while you, peons, keep being monitored.

That's why you get "don't put living animals in the microwave oven" in the instructions.

If Tesla didn't explicitely wrote "don't put your f***ing finger in the way on purpose after multiple attempts to close it!" he may have a chance.

He will plead a trauma from the loss of trust in his beloved car brand and the credibility damage on his Youtube channel and ask for M$.

Unfortunately, you need to add this about all of us supporting them: "buying the cheapest product over buying the fairest produced", therefore comforting them exploiting labor to reduce the cost is what we collectively want.

So first kill Trump, then kill some of the SC judges, so that they won't oppose you when you move to make the president bound to uphold the law.

Make sense. In its inception, capitalism was putting work as the source of value creation. Rental is about asking money while nothing is produced.

The message is all confusing today because the people talking about the value of hard work are actually the ones who want to get huge returns from investment while paying as little as possible for the work done. Their end goal is to avoid working themeselves. Smith would despise them just the same.

They're not "defeated". They got exactly what they wanted. People leaving without having to lay them off through attrition.

Now that they think they have "right-sized" their workforce at no cost, they nicely offer to concede hybrid working to keep the rest of their employees.

Alternative answer: "We understand your issue and will fix it as time and priorities allow. Please note that customers paying for support always get higher priority. Given MS contributions to the project, this ticket was ranked 42nd in our priority list.

Have a pleasant day! FFMPEG support team"

They would need to find an unclaimed island, I guess. Or isn't Antartica's status that it doesn't belong to any country? We could suggest that.

I kind of wonder if he realizes abandoning his citizenship means he'll become instantly an illegal, having no document authorizing him to stay in the country.

Ah, it was always only a matter of time before fake news makers would create a fake fact checking agency to go with it.

Was he not describing his fundraising as donations so far? You donate money you don't think you need at all. But you should be able to lend money you don't need in the near future. I would bet some of his "loyal" supporters would start to doubt if they were asked to lend too much of what they own.

I'm using Duolingo to improve my Mandarin and learn to read, and to learn Spanish.

Does anyone have some recommendations of texts for learners to practice reading?

My wife suggested me to use kids books, but I'd like a more motivating content than teddy bear's adventures...

Match Madness only (sh.itjust.works)
submitted 9 months ago by [email protected] to c/[email protected]

So it's been a while now since the leaderboard's challenge is Match Madness every day except on Saturday, when it's the Ramp Up.

I don't know if it's just me but that's getting me pretty disengaged. I quickly hit my limit on the Match Madness, then it has no interest to me.

Previously, I would use these challenges on a daily basis, as a way to review past lessons. Damned, I would use them over and over to score high in the leaderboard too.

Now I've completely lost interest in the leaderboard, but worse: I'm wondering if I'm moving back by lack of practice on past lessons vocabulary and grammar.

I don't feel like going through some past lessons and pick some randomly. How do you make sure you do pick randomly?

Am I the only one who thinks that "all Match Madness" thing is a regression?
