Nope.

They don't allow people to just randomly change seats before take off due to the weight distribution I think. Only swaps are allowed

Hmmm, meaning if they don't know about a particular IP, they won't block?
hidden for non-membersin #_gear8h
They also use some other datapoints as well I believe, but exit IP is the greatest factor in you being prevented from watching something. They mostly use the other info to reverse engineer which IPs are public VPN IPs

I did note recently that some big companies have come out lately and have said they want to shift there focus away from just making a profit which can only be a good thing. Forbes, Guardian , NYT have run articles recently that say companies must now focus on more sustainable supply chains and reduce carbon footprint otherwise they will struggle to compete in the near future.

I find there’s a difference between clever code and “clever” code. Sometimes being smart about how you build something is genuinely effective in making it highly flexible and maintainable, often times though things should just be kept as simple as possible because they’re conceptually not so complicated that some complex architecture would actually _improve_ anything.
hidden for non-membersin #_coders8h
More often than not the _obvious_ approach is the _best_ approach. When there _is_ no obvious approach _then_ consider if it needs some deeper complexity.

Problem solved... I had to revert to Nord's DNS nameservers. The Nordvpn Linux CLI isn't smart enough to use them by default.

I'm tired of people hand waving about the incoming civil war. We're so far away from a standard of living that would lead to a civil war it's not even close. People need to simmer down and realize Twitter, Facebook and the 24 hour news cycle are not reality

I toggle my vpn to see what is or isn't available in different places

I share the author's anti-consumerist stance (part of why it's fun is that you're operating outside of any market, and often probing the failures of the economic systems we're normally embedded within) but then it veers off into this Romantic "do it to screw the rich" direction...

America had been building tension and bipartisanship fueled by anti intellectualism and racism for many MANY years before Obama. Just because Obama encapsulated the anti-christ for one side, does not mean that the hard swing the opposite direction was a result of him or his policies.

hidden for non-membersin #_relationships5h
the second part of the answer seems reasonable to me.. mostly since it's important in dating as an adult that the person has thought about it some even if they're not really sure what is "ideal" (because this will vary by the person you're dating anyway)

zhxkoonvpkwr absolutely agree that should be your prerogative, but unfortunately the way tinder (and technology) is allows for the fastracking of the things you want and the easy negation of what you dont. It doesn't leave much room for nuance.

mchfmfgufg don't get me wrong, barbell work can be dangerous AF, and I would appreciate someone stepping up and correcting something that could get someone seriously hurt, but as a former competitive lifter, I know the basics and beyond, and when my technique is off, I usually already know why, and I'm proactive about asking _*coaches*_ for corrective measures.

Climate change is not going to matter if replacement rates are not fixed.

I dont think civil war will happen literally, more civil unrest (if Trump stays in power). I follow Nick Hanauer who happens to be a billionaire - he does a good podcast "pitchfork economics".

I am big fan of Bernie Saunders and OAC, these kinda people are the only ones that can save capitalism. You cant have capitalism without capital and there is hell of a lot of people in America that dont have anything. If the middle class is shrinking, and robots are taking jobs which is what is happening, then that is a problem.

If you see the number of protests that are going on around the world, it usually comes back to two issues, inequality and lack of opportunity. I've made a shit load of money on Amazon FBA in the last few years and i'm starting to realise that for every winner in society, there is a loser, and the losers are a growing base which is not sustainable.

"In 2014, venture capitalist Nick Hanauer warned his fellow plutocrats that our growing crisis of economic inequality would lead to an uprising or a dictatorship. Two years later, angry voters elected Donald Trump"

"Any society that allows itself to become radically unequal eventually collapses into an uprising or a police state—or both. Join venture capitalist Nick Hanauer and some of the world’s leading economic and political thinkers in an exploration of who gets what and why. Turns out, everything you learned about economics is wrong. And if we don’t do something about rising inequality, the pitchforks are coming."

As a friendly interjection to this conversation, what is everyone's opinion on reducing carbon footprint by reducing the amount of meat you eat? Its been proven over and over again that livestock production for human consumption far outweighs other sectors (including transportation) for climate change, CO2 emissions, etc....

_side note, not too long ago I was a cheeseburger 5x a week, steak 3x a week, all day every day carnivore._

I imagine you are working in a coffee shop as there are protestors in the streets with police walls. It must be distracting

The big thing is to avoid the cops so you don’t get shot in the eyes with rubber bullets and lose an eyeball

I'd rather see less meat available, at higher quality (and more expense), due to proper animal care

Industrial animal farms are gross, and the land used to create feed for them is obtuse. Not to mention, because they're animals the crops often have more chemical treatment

I'd love if lab meat took over

I studied climate science in uni and mostly consider personal dietary choices to be in the same category as music preference. I won't scoff if someone makes choices for environment reasons but I don't think it's going to make much of a difference without systemic change.

Now, government regulations... That has an impact. Now we just need elected officials who give a damn to fix things
