Last one hit bump limit and this board is even more dead without a blog thread. Bought a bunch of ESP32s with a built in OLED screen for around 4 dollars a piece. You can even find 8266s for under a dollar sometimes. I'm pretty sure they would all cost cents if I were to order these by the hundred. Meanwhile on Amazon everything is like 3X-10X the price.

Hot tip for while it's relevant: Google jobs search is actually really good and all of the listings it sends to my email automatically are relevant to what I'm looking for, unlike indeed's shitty job feed. I'm sure it will be useless in the near future like all google products.

I spilled a bunch of coins in a coin deposit thing in a bank. They spilled all over the floor. Not the biggest biggie but still kinda embarassing for me and probs others heh. I wasn't paying attention and tried putting like 15kg coins into this 2kg max deposit thing. ANYWAY...

Xianxia and litrpg seem to be the most popular book genres these days outside of the flood of romance novels girls read. Anime and video games influence modern generations like conan the barbarian and tolkien influenced people in the 80s and 90s.

I don't blame them. Japanese anime shit is creatively bankrupt. Just endless isekai harem pedophile crap with 2 frame animation, stolen assets, and algorithmically generated plots. It's produced for a specific audience (otaku coomers) as cheaply as humanly possible to minmax profit.

Western media is woke tranny calarts shit, like vid related, although the animation and production values are higher. Even zoomers who by and large agree with the political message being rammed home by this media are probably sick of seeing it constantly everywhere they go.

There's quite a bit of good Chinese stuff meanwhile. I think xianxia is a breath of fresh air even if it's going to be very familiar for chinese audiences because at least it's something new and the production values are vastly superior to japcrap.

Kind of. A lot of anime also gets adapted from LNs and VNs though, and a lot of shitty manga are LN adaptations themselves.

I spurted out some huge chunks of wax from my ear anyone want to see it? It was so satisfying I keep thinking about it

Hmm I've probably had mine for 2 years xd. I just rinse it a few times when I use it next. If I wanted to be safer maybe I'd also heat my pureau bottled water instead of use taper water but idc.

Just got my Comscope cert. Once again I am reminded that certs are a scam. They spend 1/3rd of the training slides shilling products and the examiners practically tell you to cheat, which I did. Lolbergtarians are right. "Statists" are retards for believing in the legitimacy of certs.

 No.74561

>>74553
The certs are mostly private aren't they? If they had the state legitimacy of something like a degree they'd be worth more.

 No.74590

>>74561
No. They are often a legal requirement. Certification is basically the government allowing a private organization to act as a state regulatory body. I would not under any circumstance be allowed on a job site without that cert. I couldn't legally do work there in the same way you can't legally do plumbing without a license.

Got fired from my cable installation job, because I refused to violate OSHA standards and stand at the tippity top of a ladder.

No, if you're not lying about your story then you need call OSHA and fuck with them. Tell ChatGPT your whole story and ask it to run you down on how to file the relevant complaint properly. Ask ChatGPT to rewrite what you should say in your phone call in a succinct but detailed manner explaining how it was a hazardous situation and the employer retaliated from your refusal so you don't have a bunch of "ums" and "uhs" or whatever.

I am not lying, but I would feel guilty about fucking their shit up. One of the primary reasons is I didn't plan to keep that job for very long in the first place, and in my heart of hearts I know that I was a shitty worker in a lot of ways(I am clumsy and work slow, you see). Even though they ultimately chose to fire me for the wrong reason, there were probably plenty of legitimate reasons to fire me. I know I'm being a naive cuck, but that's because I'm h'White.

So what? This is 2024, not 1965. Everyone job-hops because that's the only way to get a raise. Everyone thinks they don't plan to keep their job for long, especially in the first two weeks.

Being a shitty worker is okay, being asked to do unsafe stuff is not, I think it'd be a good idea to take some kind of action but be mindful of whether it will impact future employment

 No.74908

Something else I'd like to make clear is that this job wasn't very important to me. It's something I forced myself to go to, because I thought it would look good on my resume. It probably would have been in my best interest to keep it for awhile, but I am relieved that I have an excuse not to show up anymore. It's hard to be vindictive.

>>74907
>Being a shitty worker is okay, being asked to do unsafe stuff is not
You're right, but another thing is nobody else seemed to have a problem with it. In fact, outside of sites that were still under construction(as opposed to adding cables to building that have already been made), everyone was always fucking around in ways they should not constantly. I get the impression that's just how these people are.

I think I'll watch dune 2 at IMAX when there are seats. But even though it's apparently very good I'm not that excited. First one was pretty boring, even the nice visuals got a bit stale after a while
