Select list of some top posts of the previous month(s):
  1. Frugal living: Moving into a school converted into apartments! 600/month, all utilities included
  2. Follow up- my daughter’s costume. We took $1 pumpkins and an old sweater and made them into a Venus Flytrap costume.
  3. Gas bill going up 17%… I’m going on strike
  4. I love the library most because it saves money
  5. We live in Northern Canada, land of runaway food prices. Some of our harvest saved for winter. What started as a hobby has become a necessity.
  6. 70 lbs of potatoes I grew from seed potatoes from a garden store and an old bag of russets from my grandma’s pantry. Total cost: $10
  7. Gatorade, Fritos and Kleenex among US companies blasted for 'scamming customers with shrinkflation' as prices rise
  8. Forty years ago we started a store cupboard of household essentials to save money before our children were born. This is last of our soap stash.
  9. Noticed this about my life before I committed to a tighter budget.
  10. Seeds from Dollar Store vs Ace Hardware.
  11. I was looking online for a product that would safely hold my house key while jogging. Then I remembered I had such a product already.
  12. Using patterned socks to mend holes in clothes
  13. My dogs eat raw as I believe it’s best for them but I don’t want to pay the high cost. So after ads requesting leftover, extra, freezer burnt meat. I just made enough grind to feed my dogs for 9 months. Free.
  14. What are your ‘fuck-it this makes me happy’ non-frugal purchases?
  15. Where is this so-called 7% inflation everyone's talking about? Where I live (~150k pop. county), half my groceries' prices are up ~30% on average. Anyone else? How are you coping with the increased expenses?
  16. You are allowed to refill squeeze tubes of jam with regular jam. The government can't stop you.

2023.06.01 07:01 saasfin Futures Market Today

how does the futures market look today
SPY, Euro, Gold, Crude Oil, Natural Gas, Corn
Futures (

The S&P futures price is an indication of market sentiment and investor expectations about the future direction of the stock market. A higher S&P futures price generally indicates optimism in the stock market, suggesting that investors expect the stock market to rise in the future. Conversely, a lower S&P futures price may indicate pessimism and suggest that the stock market may see a decline. However, it is important to note that the S&P futures price is only one of many indicators used to predict the stock market activity, and it's not always accurate as it depends on various factors that can influence the market.

2023.06.01 07:01 Unibeetle Help troubleshooting

Help troubleshooting
Hi, I have 74 bug 1600dp and autostick. I was wondering how I should go about troubleshooting.
The engine likes to run fine for the first couple minutes of my drive, then stall at idle (when stopped in or out of gear) for a couple minutes, and then run fine afterwards. It sometimes stalls when putting it in gear, or putting it in neutral from sitting in gear stopped. Rpms will sometimes drop when giving it some gas to accelerate from a stop. During winter it would stall a lot more until the engine got up to temp. Gas milage is low at 16-18mpg. Sometimes the idle feels rough and shakes the car a little.
I can’t put the car in reverse while it’s running. Shifting has gotten harder recently and requires more force to move in/out of gear positions. A couple times I have heard grinding when shifting even though my foot was off the gas. Sometimes it will feel like the clutch is slipping when accelerating from a stop.

2023.06.01 07:00 courcake Get new housemate? Lower retirement contributions? Sell a kidney? Move to Central America? (Please help!)

Curious what others of the same mindset would do in my shoes. Thank you in advance!
I'm 31, have a masters in engineering (if that's relevant), have a stable government job, and live in SoCal (VHCOL and salaries do not keep up with COL). Been working 4.5 years. No car payment. Car insurance is liability only (old honda). Salary $116,600 (estimate around $10,000 in overtime/bonus per year, but this varies a lot and is out of my control; all percentages below are with my salary alone).
Housing Expenses: 34.2% of gross
Health Insurance: 2.0% of gross
Retirement Savings: 27.6% of gross
Taxes: 17.9% of gross
Student Loans: 1.3% of gross
Before taking living expenses or discretionary expenses into account, I am already up to 83.0% of my gross income. I keep a very detailed spreadsheet of where my money goes. Roughly 12% goes to mandatory expenses like groceries, gas, household items, utilities, etc and roughly 5% goes to discretionary expenses. Honestly feeling kind of downtrodden thinking my education would have gotten me further, but my job is stable, not stressful, and gives me an excellent work/life balance. I teeter between being grateful for what I have, how lucky I've gotten, and feeling the financial pressure of my generation. Meh.
Anyway, right now I have a housemate, but she is moving out this month (June). She's a gem, but I've had horrible experiences with housemates in the past. Of course one option is to get a new housemate, but I'm hesitating. I'd rather live alone than with someone I don't like and people are such a crapshoot. It would probably be nice to live alone too. I can't save any more money than what's above for retirement without some kind of extra income, and a housemate is the easiest solution. I'd love to fully fund my emergency/life buckets: - Home Savings: $10,000/$10,000 - Dog Savings: $3,700/$5,000 - Car Savings: $950/$5,000 - Medical Savings: $1590/$5,000 - Rainy Day Savings: $3,900/$8,000 - Vacation Savings: $860/$5,000 - Want Savings: $200/$5,000 (funds my annual yoga pass and ski pass--currently rebuilding)
What would you do? Should I get a new housemate? Am I crazy for thinking of lowering the amount I'm contributing to retirement so I can live alone and still be able to build my savings buckets? I'm already self-conscious that I'm not saving enough for retirement and that I'm behind after 9 years of college. I feel self-conscious about not being able to contribute financially in the future to my relationship. Definitely open to other creative solutions other than getting a new housemate or not. I'd really rather not change jobs.
TL;DR: Some ramble therapy. Do I get a new housemate? Do I lower my retirement contributions? Both of those allow me build savings. Do I just move forward treading water? Do I sell my house and move to Central America? (Last one is a joke. Mostly.)

Old internal HDD
So I found these two old internal hard drives while cleaning. Is there anyway to use this as external drive (atleast to check old data)? When I Google, found out that there are some adaptors to use them externally, but not sure which one to get. Can someone please help me with this?

2023.06.01 06:53 Express-Set1459 do i let him go?

sobrang sweet niya and attentive nung dating pa lang kami, pero once nung nilagyan na ng label (na siya nag-insist) – ayun. biglang bagsak. we barely see each other anymore, puro ako nag-iinitiate but mostly it's just me visiting him sa kanila after my work. we used to go on dates every weekend, i would take him to my favorite spots in the city hanggang sa naging favorite spot niya na rin yung iba dun. it makes me sad thinking about it kasi ngayon di na kami nalabas. sinasabi niya pa naman palagi noon na he loves going out with me.
ang layo na ng loob ko sa kanya and i get anxious na kasi i keep second-guessing his intentions. like, mahal pa ba ako nito? hindi na nga siya nagkukwento about his day unlike before. dati kung makakwento at update to sa akin, kahit kalagitnaan ng schoolwork, ng pagkain, ng paglalakad sa kalsada...tuloy tuloy yan. ngayon ang late reply niya na, naglalaho kalagitnaan ng convos. nalulungkot talaga ako. sobrang genuine ng pagsasama namin before, pero ngayon parang wala na. deprived na deprived ako sa intimacy and companionship. ayoko tapusin to, pero paano ko kaya to sasabihin without putting so much pressure sa kanya? baka kasi tapusin niya na lang relationship namin when he finds out na he's causing me stress and anxiety :(
dagdag frustration pala yung fact na he loved/wanted me first tapos nung nahulog na ako sa kanya saka siya magkakaganito

2023.06.01 06:50 sniperzero1 In search of: 2-3 day backpacking loops in eastern Pennsylvania (PA)

(See bottom for experience) I am planning a 3 day/2 night through-hike in the eastern PA region, however, I know nothing of the area other than the AT is nearby. I am looking for a loop that will allow me to camp for a maximum of 2 nights. Out and back is also acceptable. I don't want to be left in a position where I can't get back to my car (distance, lack of signal, etc)
I can carry 4L of water with additional filtration (in case water is scarce) and an overall pack weight of about 45 lbs. BV450 bear canister and byrna w/ max rounds (no gun)
I am a previous resident of south jersey with some experience hiking and camping in Wharton State Park. My most extended solo camp is 3 days and I recently completed a 2-day through-hike which included inclement weather. I backpack with a hammock and camp in a tent, but I am taking a 2 person tent with me on this next venture (just mentioning my experience level).

2023.06.01 06:44 Kinlow2 Don't know how to tell my coworkers (fellow coaches) I don't drink

So, I coach high school soccer with two other guys I like and respect a lot. One of them wants us to get together over the summer and grab a drink together. I typically don't have a problem with telling people I don't drink but for some reason, this situation scares me.
I go out with friends and family all the time when alcohol is present and I'm usually very comfortable in my own skin. I don't feel weird about not having an alcoholic beverage in my hand. I usually have an NA beer, kombucha, or soda. I know a lot of that comfort comes from the fact that those people already know my situation or I just truly don't care what they think.
This time it's different. I know they both like to drink. They talk about it in passing frequently. I don't ever chime in but I've never said anything like, "I don't drink". Today, one of them was talking about some gas station that has his favorite craft beer and I just responded with, "nice, that surprises me. I figured their nicest beer was Michelob ultra..." And that was about it. It felt like a "beat around the bush" response and it just annoys me that I'm not comfortable just saying I don't drink.
I'm coming on 3 years sober and have zero desire to drink. Just frustrated with how I'm probably over analyzing this situation. I'm also scared to be vulnerable especially with one coach because he's kind of like a father figure for me and I've worked with him for a while. I love the guy, but I can find myself intimidated at times.
Anyway, I haven't felt like this since I threw my best friend's bachelor party around 2 years ago.
Just needed to put this out in the universe. Much love. IWNDWYT.

2023.06.01 06:44 Nezuko89 I think i have an issue

It is June 1st at midnight and I just realized I have a problem. I (15F) after a long time realized something today that at times when im bored/ having nothing to do i start browsing sites randomly during the day even during class. When im just sitting in class bored i get on my phone and open up those apps. Yesterday i had gotten my refund on something because i had got the wrong thing after i got my money back i thought about buying stuff for no reason. i already have a lot of clothes,makeup,perfume,and i cant have press-ons due to the sport i play so i dont know why i thought about that. Later on i was hungry and wanted something so i went to my brother to see if i could get something from the gas station (I dont have a capermit) he said no which i think is good because we have a lot of leftovers in the fridge and snacks in the pantry so i dont know why i thought of that. And now before i made this post i thought about just taking a look and i still have that feeling has i'm typing this but i thought about me having a problem and decided to search it up for the signs of it and come upon this group that will hopefuly solve this and help me.

  2. Geothermal Pool Heating: Geothermal pool heating utilizes the natural heat stored in the Earth to warm the pool water. This technology involves installing underground pipes that circulate a fluid, which absorbs the heat from the ground and transfers it to the pool. Geothermal pool heating is known for its energy efficiency and eco-friendliness, making it a promising option for environmentally conscious homeowners.
  3. Advanced Solar Heating Systems: Solar pool heating has been a popular choice for homeowners seeking an environmentally friendly solution. Advances in solar heating technology have led to more efficient and effective systems. Innovative solar heating systems now feature improved solar collectors that can capture and transfer more heat from the sun to the pool water. These advancements make solar heating an even more viable and attractive option for pool owners.
  4. Hybrid Pool Heating Systems: Hybrid pool heating systems combine multiple heating technologies to maximize efficiency and flexibility. These systems integrate different energy sources, such as solar, gas, or electric, to provide optimal heating performance. By combining the strengths of each technology, hybrid systems can adapt to varying weather conditions and energy availability, ensuring consistent pool temperatures throughout the year.
  5. Smart Pool Heating Control Systems: With the rise of smart home technology, pool heatingcontrol systems have also become smarter and more intuitive. These advanced systems allow homeowners to monitor and control their pool heating remotely through mobile apps or home automation platforms. Smart control systems can adjust temperature settings based on weather forecasts, energy pricing, and pool usage patterns, optimizing energy usage and ensuring a comfortable swimming experience.
  6. Efficient Heat Pump Technology: Heat pumps have long been recognized for their energy efficiency, and advancements in heat pump technology have further improved their performance. Innovative heat pump designs now incorporate features such as variable speed compressors and advanced heat exchange systems, allowing for even higher efficiency and precise temperature control. These advancements make heat pumps an increasingly popular choice for pool owners seeking energy-efficient heating solutions.
In conclusion, the future of pool heating is being shaped by innovative technologies that prioritize energy efficiency, sustainability, and user control. Heat recovery systems, geothermal heating, advanced solar heating, hybrid systems, smart control systems, and efficient heat pump technology are among the emerging technologies that offer exciting possibilities for pool owners. As these technologies continue to evolve, pool heating becomes more environmentally friendly, cost-effective, and customizable. By staying informed about these innovative options, homeowners can make informed choices to ensure their pools remain warm and enjoyable all year round.

2023.06.01 06:42 fallingcoffeemug Objective FPS hitscan in a terrain with many obstacles

This is a prompt for a movement-enviroment TF2 based shooter. Players are limited to their base movement to scale around their environment. Players only wear a revolver and a knife. Headshots and backstabs insta-kill enemies. Bullets are hitscan, which makes them travel anywhere instantly. Players can tilt sideways (Q,E).\ \ TACTICAL\ You can't do aim-down-sights, nor would crouching replicate it. Being unable to hold down a place with A-D-S creates an emphasis on "fairness" for the Player's relationship with field of view and movement. How about instead of a Field of View, wouldn't it be more enjoyable to have a View of Field?\ \ When you're suddenly in an encounter with an enemy, most FPS games forces you to hold down Mouse 2, and lock your vision. It's a chore to kill the enemy, worst case. In this game scenario, you have all the visible options at your disposal e.g. shoot at them or run away from them.\ \ In the map, there's many obstacles placed besides paths, objectives, and chokepoints. Some being half your size, making Players able to hide their hitboxes behind most of them. Peeking by Q/E is available anytime, making dodging bullets available on the spot. Peeking to attack makes only your upper body visible, making headshots on you cleaner, but peeking can also make as your bait.\ \ Equipping your weapon takes half a second. Using a knife makes you walk +5 percent faster. Walks pretty much makes the volume of noise, which is like whispering, say. The speed of walks also determine how many steps you walk to a place. Walking gives you away to a nearby enemy. Crouching decreases the amount of noise and number of steps you make when you walk somewhere.\ \ PLAYER HP = +150\ Revolver DAM = -50\ Knife DAM = -38\ Headshots = -150\ Backstabs = -450\ \ Health kits may spawn in restock rooms (e.g. a saferoom). One health kit replenishes +80 HP and gives the player a small healing buff that ends when they get hurt again. Ammo boxes spawn along with health kits. One ammo box replenishes 1/3rd of the revolver's spare ammo.\ \ All revolvers have 24 spare bullets. All unlocks for revolvers are reskins, same as well for knives.\ \ WEAPON AND UTILITY DROPS\ \ A unique and balanced utility system creates a bend of diverged playstyles with simple counters anyone with any utility can do. There are two coexisting utilities a Player uses: Passive and Active Utilities.\ \ UTILITY\ Iron Mask Stats (Passive Mask) Being faceshot while worn deals -50 damage\ -5% slower move speed on wearer\ Breaks after one faceshot\ \ Loud Sneakers Stats (Passive Shoes)\ +7% faster move speed on wearer while active\ More steps on wearer\ \ The Ergonomic Approach Stats (Passive Juice-Hat)\ +38 HP gained on headshot\ Bullets have 2s lasting tracers\ \ Tranq Darts (Passive Bandolier)\ Colorblinds and slows victim for 1s\ -5% bullet travel speed\ \ The Baconer (Active Bottle)\ Vulnerably drink for 3s to get a 20% speed boost for each headshot kill for 10s\ 10s recharge\ \ The Dynamite (Active Stick of Dynamite)\ 3s fuse on thrown\ 5 sticks on wearer, 1 stick recharge 10s\ -30~150 damage capability\ \ The Medkit (Active Medkit)\ Vulnerably heal yourself or friend for 5s to get an +80 HP recovery\ 3 kits on wearer, 1 kit recharge 10s\ \ STRATEGIC\ Not only is this an environment-movement game, but an objective based game. Every mission is a special mission, and you cannot respawn until an important objective is completed. Most objectives require interaction with the world with (F) key.\ \ Two Teams: Government and Opposition\ \ All Players spawn inside the first zone with their role. Friendly fire is enabled! Nobody can identify someone's team if they had not done anything such as shoot or stab someone.\ \ Everyone has a neutral nametag in stealth. In loud, looking at a Player will indicate what team they're in by the color of their tag. Neutral NPCs are usually unarmed civilians. But Neutral hostiles will attack both teams.\ \ The government side is defending by interrupting the objective, or stopping the opposition by stopping them. The Government wins if they wipe out the entire opposition, or the round timer ends.\ \ The opposition side is completing an objective. Members of the opposition team have a task bar on their screen. The Opposition only wins if they complete the entire mission with at least 1 surviving member.\ \ There are two types of objectives: Progressional and Outcome Objectives\ \ Progressional objectives are mini objectives the opposition has to complete to finish an outcome objective, and no respawns on both teams occur until an outcome objective is completed.\ \ In objective missions NPCs will be spawned, depending on zones. Government or neutral NPCs will be alerted when a shot is fired, a person is killed, or a Player has a weapon.\ \ Stealth= No shots fired, Opposition Disguised Under Neutrality\ Loud= Shots fired, Hostile NPCs, Alarms\ \ NPC DAM does a significantly less output with -5 HP per hit, and hits can't land criticals. Bosses like gunships have a high DPS, making them formidable to fight against.\ \ MISSIONS\ The Blacksite Objectives\ Zone 1\ - Find the Cell Block\ - Save Rose (Opposition NPC)\ Zone 2\ - Wait for the Blast Door to Open\ - Stealth: Find and Interrogate the Base Commander\ - Stealth: Access the Terminal Computer\ - Loud: Bring the Ordnance to the Anti-Aircraft Sentries\ - Escape with the Heli\ NPC Types: Government (Soldiers), Opposition\ Environment: Shipment \ The Financier Objectives\ Zone 1\ - Eliminate the Financier (Government NPC) (Loud: Break into the Saferoom)\ - Find the hard disk (Optional Interrogation)\ - Wait for the Heli to Start\ NPC Types: Government (Bodyguards)\ Environment: House on Top of Building with a Saferoom\ \ The Deposit Objectives\ Zone 1\ - Breach the Vault (Plan A: Hack Two Control Points/Plan B: Thermite)\ - Steal the Dead Drop from a Vault Box (Find the Box Number in the Archives, Stealth: Disable the Vault Alarms)\ - Stealth: Escape in the Van\ - Loud: Burn the lobby down\ - Loud: Escape through the hole\ NPC Types: Neutral\ Environment: Bank with Offices and Furniture\ \ The Lakehouse Objectives\ Zone 1\ - Enter the basement (Plan A: Find the File with a Code/Plan B: Thermite) Zone 2 (No NPCs)\ - Enter the Server Room (Find the Drill/Find the C4)\ Zone 3 (No NPCs)\ - Bring all the servers to the boat (Make an Opening to Get Out, The Lakehouse has Alarmed Doors and Windows)\ - Deal with the Attack Helicopter\ NPC Types: Government\ Environment: Safehouse with Furniture by a Coast\ \ The Withdrawal Objectives\ Zone 1\ - Breach the Vault (Plan A: Celebrity Treatment/Plan B: Explosives)\ - Stealth Plan A: Disable the Metal Detectors to the Vault\ - Disguise as the Financier and Meet the Manager (Neutral NPC)\ - Take the Vault Money to the Van (Interrogate and Kill the Manager)\ Zone 2 (No NPCs)\ - Loud Plan B: Enter the Basement and Set Up the Explosives\ Zone 1\ - Set Up the Cage in the Lobby\ - Take the Vault Money to the Cage\ - Wait for the Heli to Arrive\ NPC Types: Neutral\ Environment: Bank with Furniture and Offices\ \ The Scientist Objectives\ Zone 1\ - Enter the Basement\ - Open the Blast Door (Take Down Falcon's Second in Command/Find the Screwdriver and Pliers, Explode the Wall)\ - Override the Control Room (Stealth: Kill All Government Players/Loud: Breach the Control Room with Gas Tanks, Protect the Router Boxes)\ - Escape with the Heli\ NPC Types: Government, Opposition\ Environment: Safehouse with Furniture\ \ The SCRS Objectives\ Zone 1\ - Hack the First Terminal (Bypass the Metal Detectors, Find the Terminal Keycard, Stealth: Disable Government Security NPCs, Loud: Protect the Router Box)\ - Hack the Second Terminal (Stealth: Find the Computer with an access key)\ - Hack the Third Terminal (Stealth: Find the USB)\ - Loud: Deal with the Attack Helicopter (Avoid Two Rockets)\ - Exfiltrate\ NPC Types: Government (Guards), Neutral (Helicopter, Civilians)\ Environment: Office Building with Helipad\ \ The Black Dusk Objectives\ Opposition can opt to start in Loud\ - Stealth: Find and Plant the Bombs\ - Development: Use the Vents to EnteFind the Code and the Keycard in Development\ - Operations: Use the Vents to Enter, Find the Drill to break in\ - Workshop: Find the code from the Head Engineer (Interrogation)\ - Loud: Plant the Bombs\ - Control Room: Unlock a Gate to One Site\ - Development: Use C4/Use the Vents to Enter\ - Operations: Breach Operations\ - Workshop: Find and Bring the Heavy Drill to the Vault/Thermite into the Vault\ - Escape (Plant the final bombs at entrance)\ - Loud: Deal with the Complication (Minigun Unit Blocks the Elevator for the Base)\ NPC Types: Government (Soldiers), Neutral (Minigun, Workshop and Development Workers)\ Environment: Bunker with Shipment and Wide Vents

2023.06.01 06:42 BeggarWild A breakdown and response to MHR: Legacy's video about the problems with anti-capitalism. Debunking "Debunking Every Anti-Capitalist Argument Ever"

To start off, the identification of the core ideas (Scarcity, Human Behavior, Time, Value Scales, "Psychic income", Utility, and Labor Vs Leisure, The Market, ERE or "Market Equilibrium") are relevant. But I would like to touch on those topics.
Also I would like to point out the hostility posed by the maker of this video. He starts off by insulting Socialists and declaring them stupid and incompetent.
First, scarcity is just straight forward. It is just based on the definition of the concept.
Human behavior should have been identified as variable and unreliable.
Time is also strait forward. Should be noted it is the most valuable "resource".
Value scales needed to be recognized as always arbitrary and unevenly represented. No two people value the same thing the same exact way because we all live different lives.
"Psychic Income" is not great concept inherently, it feels like an arbitrarily defined term.
Utility, should have just been as simple as the given definition, but in my opinion was misrepresented.
Then, for the relationship between Labor and Leisure. One that can be observed to be complimentary. They are opposites in nature. But this was also misrepresented, and continues to be by capitalism. First off, the idea that leisure is a goo is a inherently exploitative view. It is one that makes sense in the context of Capitalism. In order for the means of producing capital to grow, the availability of labor in order to produce that capital must be adequately represented and even growing itself. But that is where we run into a problem. Humans only move so long and have only so much energy. We cannot reasonably meet the demand of the market itself, to provide enough labor to allow the endless growth needed to sustain capitalism. That is where the idea that leisure is a good that need be traded or bought is not a fair idea. It suggests that the inherent state of existing is that of work. That of ones life is to contribute to the ever growing economic system. This is greatly contradicted by human behavior. To assume that the ground state of existing is work is a naive and unappreciative point of view that looks at humans as little more than machines built to serve the economic leaders. I don't want to sound to rash, or to discredit myself, but that sort of mentality reminds me of slavery.
The point made in "The Market" section is one of the greatest argued points against capitalism. Simply put (Under Capitalism), the marketer(One who sells) wants the most profit and therefore wants to sell the least product for the highest price. But the representation of the consumer is false. Indeed most might want goods or services for as cheap as possible. But indeed, consumers do not mind reasonably valuing things if they understand the labor, effort, and time put into making a good or providing a service. To assume that the consumer is just as 'greedy' as the marketer is an unfair assessment.
Finally, "market equilibrium", I cannot lie, I have never understood this concept. I am willing to admit this. The idea of a 'market equilibrium' just does not seem possible, or at least maintainable, under the guidelines of Capitalism.
"anti-communist propaganda anyone"
Ok, the supposed "conversation" depicted, is one I have been a part of many times. And such and argument is valid.
To go back to the idea of 'human behavior', humans, we, have the choice to do what we want. The idea that because charity exists and that some people do want to help others is not a fair assessment. Just because I have a lighter and a jug of lighter fluid doesn't mean I will start a fire. Though there may be opportunity, that does not guarantee that someone will follow through and take advantage of that opportunity. To depend of the whims of one or few people, who control the majority of the capital in an economic system, to fairly redistribute that capital is another naive perspective held by many capitalists. Humans are unreliable, and in a system that depends of greed to function, one cannot expect people to be charitable.
The second point is insubstantially forced. The idea that capitalism always breeds innovation and will ultimately benefit everyone is just not true. For one, Capitalism is inherently amoral (not concerned with moral disposition) there is not right or wrong in capitalism. At least not beyond growing capital. As long as someone is growing the economy and expanding their capital, they are doing Capitalism right. So to assume that everyone will act within general agreed upon moral values while functioning within the bound of Capitalism is poor judgment.
What is said about the minimum wage is just a dysfunctional way to look at people lives. Like I touched on with the idea that leisure is a commodity, to believe that the well being of others is at a conflict with the goals of the market, well it feels as though it should speak for itself. But, when it comes at the detriment to others lives, the system does not work. Not for humans its doesn't. We are more than just a means of production, and the lack of this kind of understanding is why capitalism isn't healthy.
This man needs to take statistical analytics, the fundamental principal misinterpreted with the "Post hoc" idea, is literally the concept of the difference between coloration and causation.
Simply put, things can occur in relation but that does not mean that they are intrinsically linked.
He is trying to use this argument to disprove studies that have been done to support the minimum wage.
Being one of the three main lies, Statistics can not be used as an end all be all. However, what else to we have. From what I have learned from briefly studying statistics. There isn't much else we have. As long as the statistics are being conducted with the scientific method in mind, and as long as they are used fairly. This sort of counter argument does not hold. If it did, then one could use it to discredit any sort of statistic out there.
"Capitalism causes war", same thing, correlation not causation. humans have been fighting in wars since before capitalism was even an idea. More wars were fought before its inception. But that is not to say that capitalism is peaceful. To an amoral person, any end may justify the means.
Capitalism does not inherently clash with utilitarianism. However, it may be used, and abused, leading to fewer people benefiting from the system. For example, I would like to use the concept of interest. To preface, all Capitalism is a 'zero sum system' (A system in which the net change in total capital in any given system of trade never changes) this is mostly true, but government interference does change this fact. But it stands to function best in a zero sum system. So, interest. When you take out a loan, you are trading money for money, you are given money, and you will give the same amount of money back. Zero sum. No change. But due to the motivation to make a profit, the person giving you the loan puts interest on the loan. So when you pay them back you are paying them more money than they gave you. This is viewed as a way to eliminate risk for the loaner. This is not the reality. Because the system is zero sum, while the loaner gained money and made a profit, you lost money because yo had to pay more money than you were given. Given this system, one person can profit off of the exchanging of money for money. But because the system is zero sum, that money is being taken from people. If the loaner were to do this with more people, they would make a lot of money, they would individually profit of a deficit created between these transactions. This is how, although it doesn't have to be anti-utilitarian, it can easily be used so. And there is no inherent requirement, under the guides of Capitalism, for the loaner to redistribute their capital.
Inheriting fortunes goes against the idea that the wealth will be redistributed. If, over and over, wealth is held by a singular entity, there is no guarantee that it will be redistributed. It allows the collection and withholding of capital from the masses.
Labor, resources, and time are fair determinants for the value of a good or a service. Currency is an arbitrarily valued substitute for either.
I have already discussed the unfair expectations held by Capitalism, on the grounds that ones sole existence ins not defined by the labor that they provide. Yes it is an exploitative system. It does not account for the well being of the laborer.
It is a fallacy that we could possibly own anything beyond what we make with our own to hands. Unless we agree to define what we own based on terms that equally benefit all who contribute.
Then he just repeats himself, trying to justify the exploitation of the laborer.
As it touched on before, Capitalism runs a zero sum system. If the goal is to profit, then marketers can charge whatever allows them to make the most profit without considering the consumers. There is not requirement to reasonably price any good or service, beyond the regulatory fluctuation of demand, and the need to at least break even.
I have said it before, there does not need to be a winner or looser, but there is no accountability.
I'm sensing a bias here...
Ah yes, the monopoly. I cannot conceive of a world where any form of fascism is beneficial to the masses.
The problem with Capitalism is that is does not restrict the marketer from growing so large as to control the whole market, as long as capital is growing they are doing everything right.
If not required, a company will do whatever they can to maximize profits, if that means that they do not pay their employees enough, there is nothing that capitalism does to stop that.
Yes, people will hoard their wealth. Because the system does not require the redistribution of wealth, as long as one wishes it, they may keep as much of their earned capital as they please.
"taking advantage of disasters by raising prices of 'rare' goods", I wonder where I have heard that before. Oh yeah, investors pulling out of oil companies because of the war in Ukraine, this caused the oil and gas companies to hike the prices so that they could continue to make a profit. He talked about the government, but the government is a separate entity from the Capitalist market. And like with other situations, Capitalism does not do anything to regulate these oil and gas companies. They are free to do what they must to maintain a profit. Even to the detriment of the consumer.
Automation is not a bad thing. If the economy had safe guards in place, such as a Universal Basic Income. Then people would not have to rely on having a job to survive and thus would not have to worry as much about automation.
The competitive nature brought about by capitalist sentimentality drives a line between people and nations. The idea that we must compete instead of work to gather assumes that we do not share goals. It is a harsh reality that drives us to such things as war. The arbitrary value of goods and goals has put people against each other for reasons only petty.
Isolationism is civilizations suicide.
Anarchy, the free mans dream. Is not a functional state of being for a society. It opens the door to fascism or other exploitative or power hungry regime to take over.
Capitalism is literally 'Profit over people". Again, many points i have gone over explain this. But simply, with the incentive of profit. And the goal of maximizing capital. Even though the system doesn't actively promote this kind of sentiment. It is not one that is restricted either. If it does maximize profit, why not abuse and exploit your workers.
It is not necessarily a "war against all" but Capitalism does promote competition, and the kind of "at all costs" mentality. This leads to a "war against all" scenario.
Capitalism does in fact promote materialism and consumerism. The so called "degeneracy" comes from the "at all costs" mentality that is promoted by Capitalist values.
I have already discussed the idea that Capitalism treats people like machines. But i must reiterate that when you set the precedent that work is the basis of existence and leisure is a commodity that must be bought or earned. It reflects such an idea.
I is not necessarily that there are commodities that people require help to pay for, it is that there are certain commodities that may seem immoral to build a market around once a certain level of scarcity is lost. Main this would pertain to such commodities that provide us with the necessary resources to survive. After a certain level of scarcity is lost, as is the situation in today's world, it feels arbitrary, petty, and unnecessary that we still deem these resources marketable. Such as problem could be subverted with something like Universal Basic Income, where the resources remain of the market, but the means of acquiring such resources is opened up to the masses. Though in such a situation, the necessity to profit would need to be removed from such resources to prevent the exploitation of the entity providing the income to the people.
I agree with the point that being a "free rider" is not a problem. It is the mentality to view life as a competition that holds us from working together and growing as a society.
I will be discussing my own conclusion here.
The truth of the matter is that capitalism does work. However, while it is a system that functions and does work well to achieve its own set goal. Such a goal, that to endlessly grow the economy and capital there of, is not a goal that reasonably can coexist with the nature of humans lives. We may trade, and value things. But as it stands, while we grow technologically, we outgrow the competitive mindset, that while it can lead to innovation, ultimately achieves the separation and isolation of us as a species. Furthermore, Capitalism fails to account for the well being of people and expects more from us than we can reasonably provide.
With that I am done critiquing this critique of the anti-capitalist. This video was well structured but poorly represented. Each argument was not fairly represented, and the true nature of Capitalism was never really discussed. Thank you for reading.

Read the damn post.

2023.06.01 06:41 dpchantrekker Need Advice and Assurance to remain unbothered

Hello friends! Need some advice about my thesis mates. I'm 23 irreg since I stopped and became friends w all of them but situation got out of hand. Leader decided to split up our tasks between making of paper and making of prototypes. Got assigned w prototypes w others then leader & others will do the papers. At first we hesitated we also asked them if that's fine and we're open if they need some help they reassured us not to worry. Fast forward before defense, we got some news that our names weren't included in the paper so we asked her what happened. She managed to make an excuse but it was so lame and pretentious we let it slide because we have defense. Removing our names became an inside joke w/them lowkey pinaparinig. The file's still not updated we asked them why our names still not there then siya pa nagalit she already edited some last sat how come she can't even remember to put our names on it?
We're doing our part and always open, kind of sumbat naging dating at parang we didn't do anything. The prototypes got a lot of praises too. We think she's being sided on by the people coz "she's the leader" Now that may nangyaring sagutan how can we face them without awkwardness we still have classes at we always together . Leader's the type of nagpaparinig pero discreet ayaw sabihin personally and we're not like that di kami pumapatol. So who really are in the wrong side? We never ask for a fight we always raise questions w them without being rude.
Please don't be negative I need advices not sermons. I appreciate you.

2023.06.01 06:39 D4ddyW4rbux What kind of wood and stain/paint should I put on top of my Ikea Hemnes Shoe cabinet hack?
My walls are light gray (of course they are) and trim is basic white. The floors are this brazilian cherry color from Mohawk. These cabinets are more of a cream color. I plan on either putting a tryptch above this or a collections of ikea ribba frames with family pictures (maybe black&whites). Am planning on black frames to offer some contrast.
I've liked gray as a wall or accent color WAY before it was first popular (2005'ish) and feel like I've earned the right to hold on to it a little longer so I'm getting this bench that will be on the lower left hand part of this image.
So here's the question(s): I know for sure I want to put a 77 x 7.25" continuous plank on top of the shoe cabinets to hide the seam and provide a little more interest to it. And I'm leaning towards painting it the same kind of darker gray as the bench.
  1. What's the cheapest wood I can get that will take paint well and not be damaged if someone leaves a frosty/cold mug on it and water sits on it
  2. Should I use a good hardwood and try to find the same brazilian cherry color stain instead?
I don't want to spend more than like $40 on the wood worst case if researching, I hear there's something called an appearance board but frankly, I researched it too much because I'm overwhelmed at this point.

2023.06.01 06:39 king24_ I feel like if I really attempted it, then my family & friends would finally realize how F’d up I am. Plus working for Amazon really sucks.

I’m extremely stressed out. I’ve been dealing with left leg pain for a couple months now at my job, which is believed to be sciatic nerve damage. I’ve also developed carpal tunnel syndrome in my right hand. Last night at my job, my punk ass manager wrote me up for my phone being out & beats earbud being in my ear. Now I can cop to that, made a mistake, but because this new GM entered the building, they’ve began cracking down on phone usage heavy, even while driving in the 🅿️ parking lot, which I agree with. I feel if he was a good caring manager, he would’ve gave me a warning, and the benefit as adults that I’d listen. I’m not a hard person to work with at all, I would’ve been chill about it. Plus I was forced to cross train in inbound decant, which tbh I hate now. I hate working for Amazon now badly. The night before, this little white fuel PA got an attitude cause I had boxes stacked at my station, and mind you everyone else does it. I’m fine with someone telling me it’s a safety hazard for myself, but there is no need to be rude about it. Then she tried me again today, while I’m standing at the board and she’s writing my name near a station number, she says in this slick rude way “go head”. I feel either I need to quit now, or else I’m going to explode on them both. When I left early tonight cause of my pain, and being pissed at the write up, I completely avoided the nerdy white boy who wrote me up, didn’t even see him while I was there for an hour and a half.

2023.06.01 06:39 TheHopefulStar How long did it take you to study for your driver's permit?

I'm 30F that lives in the US (PA). My goal is to pass by the beginning of July (or maybe within two weeks, if possible). I have a lot of free time; I work a part-time job, and have three days off. Alway's on my computer. I have something called "Amaxophobia" which is pronouce (Amax - o - phobia), which means a fear of driving. I am a bit motivated as I watch others on Youtube and see others driving. Don't want to keep depending on otheres to take me where I need to be. Would love to get my license before Fall this year (before I turn 31). Don't know if that's possible. 😟
Thank you for reading. Remmeber, happy and safe driving guys! 💚
