  Who would've guessed that Fortune magazine was trash?
Posted by: crispier taco - 19-04-2019, 11:43 AM - Forum: Everything Else - Replies (1)

Fortune Editors Wrote:This Is the Emotional Quality That the World’s Greatest Leaders All Share
Our sixth annual leaders list is the home of the brave. These thinkers, speakers, and doers make bold choices and take big risks—and move others to do the same.

When Anna Nimiriano goes to work in the morning at the Juba Monitor newspaper in South Sudan, she may not have to worry about getting fired. She’s the editor-in-chief. But she does have to worry about being jailed or even killed. The authoritarian government frequently dislikes what she publishes. At least seven journalists have been murdered in South Sudan since its civil war began in 2013, and President Salva Kiir has explicitly threatened to kill more. The One Free Press Coalition of major news organizations says Nimiriano “lives under constant threat.” Yet she carries on.

Nimiriano is No. 8 on our new list of the World’s 50 Greatest Leaders, an example of astounding courage. Not many of our other honorees risk their lives, but it’s striking how courage is a theme running powerfully through this year’s list. Whether in business, government, education, sports, or NGOs, these leaders take action before others do, leading from out front, where the risk is often dire and their own future least certain. Everyone has something to lose, and many on our list risk possessions that most people value highly: reputation, career, fortune, esteem.

Consider Lloyds Banking Group CEO António Horta-Osório, who has openly acknowledged his struggle with mental health. Such an admission was previously inconceivable for a high-profile CEO, so he couldn’t know what would happen. Turns out it has brought him praise rather than scorn and has helped lift a stigma in an industry notorious for driving workers up to and beyond their limits.

Great leaders never know for sure if their plans will work, but they plunge ahead anyway. That’s why we recognize sheer audacity, well intended, even if the results aren’t known and even if the plans aren’t universally applauded. CEO Tim Cook is steering Apple, a giant worth over $900 billion, away from heavy reliance on slowing iPhone sales and toward a business model based on subscription revenue. Many industry experts are skeptical. All we know for sure is he had to act, he’s working at gigantic scale, and he isn’t playing it safe.

It's brave, risking life in the interest of free press in a nation ravaged by civil war, genocide, corruption, famine and a ruling power that may destroy you.
But also Tim Cook is very brave for diversifying Apple's portfolio

The Top 50 Leaders list also ranks in all 42 newly elected female politicians in the USA (including Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez) at number 18 below Sean McVay; "The youngest head coach in modern NFL history took his team to the Super Bowl"

  One Punch Man season 2
Posted by: NZs no.3 - 16-04-2019, 06:36 PM - Forum: Degenerates - Replies (7)

So the only Anime I've watched properly and multiple times since High School is One Punch Man.

It's so fantastic. Goddam stellar, 10/10 for sure.

Our resident weeb told me season 2 started, so hopped on Ep 1 tonight. Ep 2 should be out tomorrow. This is the thread for tracking each episode, week by week.


So, Ep 1 season 2. I thought it was dam good. Humor is still top notch, although i think the animation took a little bit of a hit? Looks "softer" than last time (not as fluid or sharp as season 1) but could have been just me.

I don't know what this season is based off, Oathy can you chime in? I know season 1 ended where the Manga was currently up to, its been a couple years so is it following whats been written manga-wise or?

Anyway, plot has a direction, keen to see way more of the other heroes and they teased a bunch of old and new. I have high hopes for this season.

Gotta love Sitama, stops the bird with one hand, then one punches its head. ALMOST LIKE THATS HIS SCHTICK.

The part where they were gaming at Kings place was great too, loved it.

So i watched Monster (https://myanimelist.net/anime/19/Monster) first time around 2 years ago. It was a fucking good anime, one of the oldschool classics I never got around to watching for a while.
Fucking first class anime the whole way through, none of the new school high school loli big tit harem tsundere isekai wish fulfillment bullshit we see now-a-days.
One of a kind anime that leaves you at the edge of your seat the whole way through, twists and turns, no idea whats gonna come next.
I just watched the first episode again just now and think I will go the whole 9 yards through the 74 episode epic that this anime is.
Keen for other people to join me.
I might make a discussion thread every 10 episodes or so, we'll see.
Join me bros.

Who's excited? This is going to be a hot mess but we'll see a lot of low-importance characters frivolously murdered off now that they don't need to be saved for arbitrary plot contrivances and weird filler arcs

Hamfisted fanservice and boring conclusions incoming, I'm going to love hating this

  Bradford Tuckfield is a data scientist in New York.
Posted by: crispier taco - 14-03-2019, 02:42 PM - Forum: Everything Else - Replies (3)

Watch a data scientist misunderstand their own data and make sweeping comments about all culture

Quilette often talk about interesting things but also, Bradford is an idiot

Tinder data scientists Wrote:“the bottom 80% of men (in terms of attractiveness) are competing for the bottom 22% of women and the top 78% of women are competing for the top 20% of men.”

Using this and some similar data Bradford suggests:
Bradford Tuckfield Wrote:If these findings are to be believed, the great majority of women are only willing to communicate romantically with a small minority of men while most men are willing to communicate romantically with most women. The degree of inequality in “likes” and “matches” credibly measures the degree of inequality in attractiveness, and necessarily implies at least that degree of inequality in romantic experiences. It seems hard to avoid a basic conclusion: that the majority of women find the majority of men unattractive and not worth engaging with romantically, while the reverse is not true. Stated in another way, it seems that men collectively create a “dating economy” for women with relatively low inequality, while women collectively create a “dating economy” for men with very high inequality.

I sort of feel like Bradford failed to address the variables of effort and taste in taking good profile photos, innate sexiness vs whether or not people are fit/well dressed/wearing the correct amount of toner. Like, maybe one possible bit of advice is: try harder at being sexy if you want to be sexy. Some things (eg: facial symmetry) are difficult to change without some serious surgery and money but many things are not

Instead:
Bradford Tuckfield Wrote:As Western civilization declines or at least frays at the edges, the ways our culture has developed to deal with the gap in the attractiveness distribution are receding and dying. Young people enter the equality-inducing institution of monogamy later and later or not at all, spending more time in a chaotically unequal polygynous dating world. Monogamy itself is weaker, as divorce becomes easier and even married people often report encountering “dead bedrooms” in which one or both spouses feel no obligation to give a partner who they do not regard as sufficiently attractive access to sexual experiences. Religious belief is in constant decline, and with it declines the belief in the dignity of celibacy or the importance of anything other than hedonism (sexual or otherwise). Even fairy tales that for centuries helped us understand how to live charitably with each other are disavowed and cultural tastemakers like Time Magazine and the BBC denigrate them as sexist.

What kind of dickhead takes three or so constrained bits of data and then describes monogamy as sexual income redistribution

  The Order by Netflix is a good (enough) supernatural teen show
Posted by: crispier taco - 12-03-2019, 04:01 PM - Forum: Music, Movies, and TV Shows - Replies (4)

It has werewolves and instead of vampires they have members of a hermetic order (there are potions, magic spells and spooky runes)

They have all the usual sideline boring characters but have given them deep character flaws and made them better.

The poorly defined nature of the magic will make it ripe to be ruined over the course of it's third or fourth season as it rehashes the same plot points with villains of increasing ridiculousness wielding more powerful magic mired in contradictions to previous soft rules. But the first season was good and they've set themselves up for a second season which will probably also be good.

  Wargroove - place your bets
Posted by: NZs no.3 - 03-03-2019, 02:04 PM - Forum: Video Game Discussion - Replies (5)

So Wargroove has been out a month and I've sunk in quite a few hours to it.

I have little complaints (that will be patched out anyway) and its scratching my Advance Wars itch well..


I thought I would make a post with a few battles that are going on for people to place their bets on the winner/s for each map.

I will continue to give some updates through the match but once you've locked in your choice - that's it.

Prizes? No idea. You can be smug about being right and I'll change your name on the forum to "Chief Strategic War General" or some shit and your own group to match.

Anyway, heres 3 games we have going:

[Image: 8tMmvjx.jpg]

This map is called Island X and is a remake/port of the same map from Advance Wars. This is a team game. It's myself and $ilent$sun vs Wumblemuppet and a mate of mine Ben Switch (insert nickname here?).

(notice all these maps are waiting on $ilent$suns turn - a recurring theme) (but not as bad as Mark).


Anyway, we are blue and red team on the right, and the other two are purple and green. Wumblemuppet is using a commander unlocked from the campaign that I am going to cry about being OP cause I want to bitch and don't have that commander yet.

The islands are connected by 1 bridge, and we have a couple ports each and average income. Left side will have 100 more income a turn to purple team.

Verdict: this match could go either way. It's easy to fuck up, but I do have a battleship which is in range of many land units. Wumblemuppet still needs to get his around and in range. Lets see where it goes!

(see poll for bets).



Next map is:

[Image: 9qTuH55.jpg]

The name escapes me right now but this is also an Advance Wars remake by me.

This is not a team game, and is just your standard FFA. I'm blue, womblemuppet purple, Ben Switch green $ilent$sun red.

Should be a good game. To early to say who's gonna do what really. Gonna be a bit of a fight over the middle (no duh).




And finally the third map:

[Image: J5wSI4x.jpg]

Now in this map it's already gone to shit. Womblemuppet is orange and was pretty uncontested when it came to claiming the middle. He only had to kill a couple of dogs while the rest of us got trolled by wagons. So the better betting condition for this map is how many turns until Womblemuppet wins I guess. I'm light blue, Ben green, $illent$sun black.

The map name is Singing Sands and is a map from the game itself, no Advance Wars port this time.


GO VOTE ON THE POLLS
