• Jeremy Vine (stupid BBC cunt) interviewed an American psychopath called Athena Walker today. She was very interesting.
      My best friend is a diagnosed psychopath. Was a policeman in South Africa. He is of Indian descent. So absolutely hated by the zulus and also treated as a second class citien by the whites (who were in charge at that time).

      He has killed people. Beaten people to within an inch of their lives. Yet if you met him, you'd come away saying "he's a really nice chap, really easy going, easy to talk to, good guy". It is all a facade. Underneath he would fuck you up and not bat an eye. How come he is my best friend? :shrug: Go figure...

    • Here's what happens when a dumb fucking bagger accidentally gets a lot of money
      Andrew Jackson "Jack" Whittaker, Jr. (born c. 1947 in Jumping Branch, West Virginia) is the winner of a 2002 lottery jackpot. When he won US$314.9 million in the Powerball multi-state lottery it was, at the time, the largest jackpot ever won by a single winning ticket in the history of American lottery. After winning the lottery, he had several brushes with the law, as well as personal tragedies.[1]

      On August 5, 2003, less than a year after Whittaker won the lottery, thieves broke into his car while it was parked at a strip club in Cross Lanes, West Virginia. The thieves made away with $545,000 in cash that Whittaker carried around in a suitcase.[6] When asked why he would carry that much money around with him, Whittaker responded "because I can". In another incident, two employees at the club, the general manager and a dancer-manager who were romantically linked, were arrested and charged with a plot to put drugs in Whittaker's drinks and then rob him.[5] On January 25, 2004, thieves once again broke into his car, this time making off with an estimated $200,000 in cash, but this was later recovered.

      On September 16, 2004, Jesse Tribble, an 18-year-old on-and-off-again boyfriend of Whittaker's granddaughter Brandi Bragg, was found dead in Whittaker's home in Teays Valley, West Virginia.[7] A coroner's report indicated that he had died from overdosing on a combination of oxycodone, methadone, meperidine, and cocaine.

      On December 20, 2004, Brandi Bragg, 17, was found dead on the property of a male friend after being reported missing on December 9. Her body was wrapped inside a plastic tarpaulin and dumped behind a junked van. No one was charged with a crime. Cocaine and methadone were found in her system, but the cause of death was listed as "undetermined."[5]

    • Fresh (sorta) outta college into the White collar workplace, Absolutely LOATH it. Feel like college was a mistake and tradeschoo
      I'm in my late 20's, took a long time at college ( I rotated through a number of majors, 3 colleges, part time/full time, and ended up having almost 70 extra credit hours that were not applicable to my degreed field). I had no idea what I wanted to do, and all college really did is solidify that I did not want to work in anything related to my degreed field of engineering. This is my first foray into formal white collar work, and the first job I have hated. I waited tables, I kitchen staffed, I did IT installation work all while going to school and while they were perfect at least at the end of the day I felt like I did something.

      I have recently started working for a company that I interned with during some of my final semesters at college. I have only been at work proper for 3 months now, with an additional 6 months of interning prior. I absolutely loathe the workplace, the environment, and the work itself is pretty aggravating. I'm currently doing comp-sci and programming related tasking, and that's what the bulk of the job description was for so I knew what I was getting into, but I overestimated my abilities to learn the skills needed. I sit around NO ONE that even codes anything, so I'm basically on my own.

      I'm not very good at it, in fact I would say I am positively bad at it. So much so that I have a feeling of inadequacy like never before. Each and every day feels like I am wasting my companies time, my bosses time, and most importantly my time. I am WAY over paid for the amount of work I am able to deliver and have even considered lying on my weekly time report to only reflect 50% of my working time. I basically sit and stare at a computer screen, google how to code specific items I need, or lift it from other sources when freely posted.

      I feel distraught at work, exhausted at home, and unable to enjoy anything.

    • Neo-Nazi Daily Stormer loses its Russian domain, too
      When the Daily Stormer lost control of its .com domain in the face of a social media protest, the infamous hate site sought virtual refuge in Russia. For a few hours on Wednesday, the site re-appeared at the domain "dailystormer.ru" before the site lost DDoS protection from CloudFlare and disappeared from the Web once again.

      Now the Russians have nixed the Daily Stormer's new online home, citing the country's laws against hate speech. According to Radio Free Europe, the Russian company responsible for registering the Daily Stormer's Russian domain received a letter from Russian authorities asking it "to look into the possibility of register suspension due to extremist content of this domain. So we decided to suspend [the] domain Dailystormer.ru."

      Why do we always get defeated in Russia?

    • 8k monitors are getting affordable
      Page: 2
      I remember when the first 1280X1024 LCDs almost cost that much :(. A company I worked for bought a few, I think they were in the 3 grand range, and they got a discount.
