I hear ya, but there's a legal line you'd be crossing, hypothetically being a political figure publicly stating someone is guilty. Regardless of the circumstances, can't muck with a fair trial. Just like how Trump keeps saying things are illegal, Lock Her Up, etc - by doing that he's legally protecting them from ever being prosecuted.

Woman as an entire gender. Have some nuance, could you? Jesus.

1 point · 2 days ago

Here's the issue: Women are set A. Teen girls are subset B. All B are A but not all A are B. The joke is about subset B, and you're trying to extend it to all of A. But all A aren't B. It doesn't apply.

I mean, you might as well write a strongly worded letter to Tina Fey for her derision of the entire gender for making Mean Girls.

What would I search for to learn more about this grammatical error I made? Your version sounds more eloquent to me, but I still don't see what was incorrect in my original phrasing. I looked up a list of prepositions and there are countless cases of them ending sentences I encounter quite regularly. How is one to know when it is incorrect?

Edit: Upon further research it seems this isn't a grammatical rule at all, but was a stylistic meme sourced from one guy in the 1800's who thought English should strive to be more Latin-like (1, 2). These are the words I choose to write with. It is with what you must deal. ;)

Not so much a rule, just good/better writing. It's not bad what you did, it's just better the other way.

I think if you look up the definition of "meat", some definitions will say that is specifically is flesh while other definitions will say any food. Often times I'll use the term "meat" to describe any thick or bulky part of a food. Maybe I'm just crazy though.

The way we talk isn't ligituous labeling. Especially when it comes to food, we should be as accurate as possible.

1 point · 5 days ago

I support accurate labeling. Don't call something sausage if it's not sausage. Vegan is cool, meat is cool, not a big deal.

Exactly. I bet this customer had unrealistic expectations. Otherwise, there's no reason for the 2 other locations to refuse.

? Not "exactly," if someone doesnt offer the service the request dies there. "We dont do photo editing." Done. Not a big deal. OP's story has a lot of holes in it, doesn't even mention whether or not OP whited out the background. While we're guessing and making "i bet" statements, I bet the customer didnt really expect that and is thrown in to the story just to make him look worse.

This is how stupid OP's story is: guy wanted to print passport photos. 2x2, on normal paper. Already had them on a thumbdrive. OP wanted to charge him $15 despite 2x3 photos costing 0.39 to print. OP tried to upsell him because OP pulled a "i know better" and only after the customer got pissed did OP relent and simply print at the normal printing price.

No end to the story either, just "i bet it didnt work out for the customer lololol"

Incidentally im going to pick up my passport today where i used a photo that most everyone would say wasnt to perfect regulation. Head was way too big.

Regardless, I hope nobody imitates you by submitting a non-regulation photo.

Sure sure, spin a negative. You realize that sometimes you need to print 6 passport photos right, and that $13 prints add up? I just saved you $50 and you're complaining about irregularities that I've proven aren't a big deal.

Further proof being my shiny new russian visa. You know who cares more about paperwork regulations than the US? Fuckin Russia. They're insane about it. Belarus is worse though. Ukraine doesn't give a shit. Neither does the EU.

(For boring white people at least)

When they say "guzoline " that's in reference to gasoline, an actual fuel used in factories, vehicles, and war machines.

The womens march in DC 2 years ago had a featured speaker who kidnapped and tortured a man to death.

People that are ok with dude being in the movie aren't defending pedophilia. Dude sent some gross emails to a minor. Went to jail for it. Shouldn't he be allowed to rejoin society at some point? Or should reform only be for things like murder?

Hey whats wrong with sentry

I like how overpowered he was, but I think they took it too far too fast. He's too powerful for his own good, and in contrast to other "overpowered" characters, he keeps using his power offensively all the time with little limit.

Just a short list:

  1. He can technically resurrect people by touching them
  2. He put himself back together after molecule man seperated all the molecules in his body
  3. He breaks an enraged Hulks arm, while in a weakened state
  4. He breaks a weapon infused with cosmic power with his bare hands
  5. He tears apart several beings with extreme power and regeneration abilities
  6. He can essentially teleport by moving fast(takes a few seconds to travel to Titan(or the sun) and back)
see more

It's a shame because that was all later, and from many different takes on him. His second miniseries has a magic clock and he's super 9000, dark reign he's just a nutters coward, he nearly kills hulk but then hulk beats him in WWH.

Back when it was just "you used to be the greatest superpowered person ever, but someone captured you and made everyone forget you existed, including yourself" is such a great start. And then to find him in an underground prison during a riot, and he tears carnage in half. In space. Or battling the collective. "Just send Bob in till we figure out wtf that is." Had some great moments.

I hope one day someone with talent picks up his story. I mean, lightning can't kill him.

Bonus points as this happened 6,000 miles from home. Operation:

  1. Was running fine, nothing intensive, then it froze completely on the desktop.

  2. Forced a shutdown.

  3. Tried multiple times to boot. Went through the forced shutdown, then "hold up and power for 15 seconds," tried holding up and pressing power once, multiple times. The keyboard lights up and turns off as i force shutdown and turn it back on. It's doin something.

  4. Walked to the store and bout a 16gb usb stick.

  5. Downloaded USB recovery image on my phone, transferred it to a friend's laptop, unzipped it, transferred those files to the USB stick.

  6. Tried to boot with the USB stick plugged in. Nothing happens.

Keyboards lights are on, but screen remained black through this entire scenario.

Ideas?

Edit: Currently charging it to full to see if that does anything. It was about half charge wheb it froze.

Are you able to get to the Surface UEFI setup?

Steps here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-au/help/4023511

The recovery drive may not be set up correctly (bootable USB drive).

Correct steps taken from Microsoft:

  1. Connect your USB drive to your Surface (use a USB 3.0 drive if you can). The USB drive should be at least 16 GB. If you have a Surface RT or Surface 2, 8 GB will work.

  2. In the search box on the taskbar, type recovery, and then select Create a recovery drive. You might be asked to enter an admin password or confirm your choice.

  3. In the User Account Control dialog box, select Yes.

  4. Make sure Back up system files to the recovery drive isn’t selected, and then select Next.

  5. Select your USB drive, and then select Next > Create. A number of files need to be copied to the recovery drive, so this might take a while.

  6. When it’s done, select Finish.

  7. Go back to the recovery image .zip file that you downloaded and open it.

  8. Drag the files from the recovery image folder to the USB recovery drive you created. Then choose to replace the files in the destination.

Alas, I cannot boot the surface, therefore can't make a recovery drive from it. I have a russian laptop here with windows... 7? On it. I just copied all the files in the 5.7gb recovery zip file onto the usb 3.0 16gb drive i bought. Didnt boot though. I connected another usb drive thaT has a blue light on it. The light doesnt turn on, indicating that nothing is trying to read from it.

Power off the Surface.

Press and hold the volume-up button.

With the volume-up button held down, press and release the power button.

Continue holding the volume-up button until the Surface or Windows logo no longer appears on the screen.
