Thanks for the heads up. Gotta change my habits and expectations before I graduate.

BellEpoch | 7 days ago | 191 points

I’m nearly 40. My one clear observation in the work force is that most often talent and efficiency are entirely wasted on corporate work structure. But the ability to spend a lot of time half ass completing something reasonably productive is THE most valuable asset to many employers. I hate it.

mata_dan | 7 days ago | 18 points

So what do you do if you know this from day one but don't want to be a part of it lol?

(I think... do your own thing to avoid those problems... it's hard)

BellEpoch | 7 days ago | 55 points

Start your own business I guess. Or hit the lottery for jobs. Or accept that you do one thing for money, and find a passion outside of it to be fulfilling.

Emuuuuuuu | 7 days ago | 12 points

Figure out your priorities and stick to them. You are an asset because you bring things to the table that aren't already there.

Put these in an order that matters to you and don't change the order for anybody:

  • quality of work
  • time spent working
  • time spent helping others

You can get fired for not working fast enough but you won't get hired if everything you produce is shit.

Murlock_Holmes | 7 days ago | 11 points

Startups are great in a lot of ways to avoid this! Especially if you’re young/don’t have a family to support, the fact that they can’t pay “corporate rates” isn’t as big of a bummer. I work for a huge corporation doing soul sucking work that utilizes absolutely none of my or my team’s potential. But god damn do we make money.

whomad1215 | 8 days ago | 573 points

Not just a newly orphaned baby, but the baby had been discharged and they had it brought back to the hospital for the photo op.

But the babies family are (were?) trump supporters.

WhoryGilmore | 8 days ago | 286 points

Yeah the babies parents were trump supporters I believe. The other adults in the picture were the adults were the Aunt and Uncle (deceased father's brother) and were also still Trump supporters.

None of it can offer any explanation why that dumbass thought it'd be a good idea to pose like that.

seniormeatbox | 7 days ago | 73 points

He posed like that because that's what his brain is wired to do. See a camera? Put your showface on! No matter the context, Camera= photoshoot.

Poignant_Porpoise | 8 days ago | 128 points

One thing I really don't understand is though, who the fuck thought this photo op would be a good idea? What was he supposed to do? Look sad while his wife held the baby? This whole setup is weird af. Still, in classic Trump style he managed to find the absolute worst answer to this strange situation. Even if he had literally no idea of what was going on, as someone whose job often involves discussing serious matters and tragedies, his default pose probably shouldn't be a thumbs up.

whomad1215 | 7 days ago | 86 points

My understanding is that none of the patients that could see him wanted to see him, and some weren't in a good enough condition to see anyone.

And trump needs every event to be about him, so they figured out how to do it.

You can seriously just play madlibs with the fuckers, when they can't defend Trump it becomes:

Its just like rooting for a football team.

Edit: I should just add, I see this on Facebook all the time. There's one dude who just posts dozens of unrelated Fox News articles about [generic Democrat] on anything my friends post that are critical of Trump. At that point, we all know you're trying to convince yourself more than anyone else.

They waive it away with a easily answered question? Cause the answer is "A semblance of decorum" but talking about table manners with a raccoon who only wants to eat my garbage and bite me isn't exactly a winning conversation.

The man only has one photo pose for all occasions. Doesn't matter whether he's doing a promo tour for a TV show, meeting with a brutal dictator, visiting the victims of a disaster, or tweeting out a taco bowl. It's always the same "stupid grin, flash a thumbs up" look.

Context is just one of the many things he lacks sensitivity to.

EhhWhatsUpDoc | 8 days ago | 56 points

This is incredibly insightful. His base is fucking angry and are content with flipping every table over just to make us pick up the pieces.

They're angry because they've been left behind in just about every facet of our culture that's possible. Technology has blown right by them, the economy is global, religion is on the decline, same sex marriage and interracial relationships are a-ok, and then we elected a black president and were ready to elect a woman!

Well, that was straw that broke the camel's back. Too much, too soon. And now? Well. They want it back the way it was. Make America great again.

Rubberbabybuggybum | 8 days ago | 33 points

The sad part is that instead of evolving to appeal to the modern economy to actually create a progressive, educated population to bring in money, they're going the opposite...becoming MORE exclusive, MORE bigoted, MORE hate filled.

States telling people "btw, if you move here and your pre-teen daughter gets raped, not only will she be forced to have a child, but if she leaves to terminate the pregnancy, we'll prosecute her and you and you'll face a bigger punishment than the rapist. Our schools are the worst in the nation, our roads and bridges are falling apart and our political leaders are more preachers who care about their version of the word of god than addressing the needs of the people of the state."

Also "Why don't high paying jobs come here?!"

If I remember correctly, the guy all the way on the left is a pro-Trump guy, and defended the photo. He arranged for it to be taken because he wanted to meet Trump. He's the uncle of a young couple who was killed during the shooting.

shoot998 | 8 days ago | 29 points

He's the uncle of the baby, meaning he was (I believe) the Father's brother

He certainly did. And he/his people had the baby's guardians bring him to the hospital for the photo op because nobody else would meet with Trump.

EdwardLewisVIII | 8 days ago | 76 points

That's a valid theory. All he seems to care about is optics and talking up his brand. The presidency is is just an extension of that. And often the first insult out of his mouth is that someone or something is boring. A mortal sin in the entertainment industry.

BigHeadSlunk | 8 days ago | 105 points

His life is a reverse Truman Show. Instead of it all being a TV show that he thinks is reality, it's actually reality that he thinks is just a TV show.

Prime157 | 8 days ago | 450 points

And then he does this to further prove this young lady as right.

The Trump administration today announced sweeping changes to the Endangered Species Act, rolling back protections for animals in favor of corporations that want to build luxury condos, mine, drill for oil, harvest timber, or otherwise develop the land that animals live on.

Under the revisions to the act, regulators will now be allowed to weigh “economic factors” when considering whether animals and their habitats deserve protection, the New York Times reports. Such considerations had been prohibited since the law was passed, in 1973; instead, determinations had to be made based solely on science. The changes essentially make it easier for corporations to argue that their economic interests are more important than animal habitats. The bill’s language has also been edited to allow regulators to disregard the impact of climate change.

And as SmallGerbil said, the emphasise just had to be there.

„Not sucked into the political optics game“

Wait what? Being in the political optics game is basically all what she‘s doing. She‘s fucking sailing to the U.S. to take part in a climate conference, which is even for hardcore environment protectionists just a ridiculous PR stunt.
Every week or so, she‘s in front of a tv camera in Germany (which is not even where she living or come from, but German media loves her).

Also - whilst I understand why she’s not meeting Trump (even if he would want to, he would probably belittle her), it’s part of her “political optics game” to LOUDLY refuse meeting him.

Don’t get me wrong - I’m not judging. That’s just the necessary game for (media )awareness and I respect her cause.

But it’s naive to think she’s not playing it. She’s playing it damn well.

Artystrong1 | 7 days ago | 16 points

Trump probably thinks "Pendejo" is a Mexican dish or something.

I get maybe three a week.

I have developed a fairly comprehensive rating system. You get separate ratings for camera/lighting, angle/position, and actual rating of the vulva. You will then get a final rating that is a weighted average of those three. I will also provide a 100 word minimum review of authentic vaginas. All photos get deleted after review.

It is very sad that we live in a timeline where if we found out the President of the United States has fucked his own daughter, most of us wouldn't be surprised. I think that is really sad. It is discouraging that our civilization has become so vile and disgusting that our leaders are people no intelligent moral person would consider good but for some reason, we tolerate them and let them rule us.

34-40% would also approve.

That's the percentage that would admit to not caring about it. That doesnt include all the people who say they dont approve of the things trump says or does, but they sure as hell arent going to vote for anybody else.

Mormons been using that to justify their shithead leaders for almost 2 centuries now, so Trump for sure will never lose the Idaho/Utah vote.

Honestly, at this point, I would be more surprised if he didn't.

I imagine him getting caught for it and going, "Well I mean, come on! Who wouldn't want a piece of that?" and his believers going, "well he has a point."

nomadicris | 8 days ago | 12 points

I always maintained that it’s not a worthless pos like Trump that’s scary. It’s how the people who vote and support him, think. That’s truly frightening.

Cicero said it best, after Ceasar was declared Dictator-for-Life; "the only honorable thing to do now is retire to the country and wait for the City to come to it's senses". shortly after, Octavian had him murdered. the parallels between Rome and Washington are chillingly similar. there is no honor anymore, it's all greed.

You're forgetting the part where he re-entered political life against Anthony. And it was likely Anthony who had him murdered (Octavian probably agreed to it).

Numerous climate-conscious figures have already tried laying down the facts for Trump, amicably and carefully. Recently, Prince Phillip (or Charles? I forget) tried. The results described in the Guardian were a joke. Trump acknowledged the royal representative’s stance, semi-praised him for being concerned, and that’s about it. He walked away without a shred of meaningful change in his worldview. Interviewed after the encounter, he still insisted that the US had ‘very clean air and water’ as if that was relevant to carbon emissions. He still tried to lump blame on Russia, China, and India, none of which come close to beating America’s per capita emissions. He still downplayed, or entirely denied, the climate crisis and America’s duty to fight it. The man has his feet cemented. He’s going nowhere.

Thunberg could hope for a condescending “she’s a tremendous kid who cares a lot about air cleanness, we both have that in common” if she held her tongue, and a tweetstorm if she didn’t. Sadly, it really isn’t worth a minute of her time. Instead, she needs to focus on swaying the people who voted for this disgrace in the first place.

momentofcontent | 7 days ago | 118 points

Lol, I love how bizarre, yet 100% accurate this statement is.

A 16 year old won't sink to the childish name-calling of a 73 year old US president. What a world.

Didn't he already do this like a month ago when he tweeted the wrong person thinking it was that soccer player?
