OK, this is really weird. Windows/something seems to be forgetting that I have graphics drivers installed after a while. I install the latest though GeForce Experience, go play my games, etc and all is well. Some time later (after a restart I think) no games work, and Experience claims I have no drivers installed.

Very weird.

To you, the day that Geforce Experience had an error and uninstalled itself may have been the greatest day of your life, but to me it was Tuesday.

The supervisor at work is becoming more and more hostile to me. Today, she demanded I do an additional task with my work, which was to take off the hangers that were left on the top bar of the clothing rack and hang them with the other hangers that aren't being used. She tells me to do this despite: literally everyone else who handles the racks before me are closer to where the hangers are, I'm dealing with a heavy backlog because everyone else's Gotta Go Fast(Fuck Quality)!, and I'm visibly limping because of foot pain caused by my shoes(which I've only had about 2 months) are wearing quickly and unevenly due at least in part to all the broken sharp crap I keep stepping on because nobody knows how to clean up anything around here. This may have been because I spent about 15 minutes doing absolutely nothing because I was boxed into a corner(again) and could literally do nothing.

Yesterday, the same supervisor clips me in the hip with a large rolling bin of clothing, which caused me significant(but temporary) lower back pain. Given that she was pushing it from the wide side and could damn well see me, it's hard to think it was accidental.

Isn't the unemployment rating low enough to for him to find a new job fairly easily?

I very much specifically said I was not referring to a specific article. Its in a quote in your post, even
You referred to the article, and it's disclaimer, in the quote in my post. Unless you're confusing me with someone else, you've done that before.

No he didn't. This is getting toxic. Let me point out what was in the Tawa post immediately preceding ChairmanPoo's post. ChairmanPoo was responding to this specific post here, which mainly discusses one article I linked
http://www.bay12forums.com/smf/index.php?topic=68850.137580

Tawa opened his post with:

Quote
Reelya, you should actually read the articles you cite as proof that the media is out to get you. Both of the articles you linked very explicitly say "nazis hate the film", not "everyone who hates the film is a nazi".
Quote
    That isn't to say that all objections to The Last Jedi or The Force Awakens, which introduced the new cast are rooted in far-right ideology or hatred. For some, the story simply didn't conform to what they had imagined; fans have had over 30 years to dream up what Luke Skywalker did after Return of the Jedi, and there were plenty of now-discarded novels, comics, and video games that offered more rousing heroics than his self-imposed exile on a forgotten island. Those dissatisfied on this count are sometimes rigid nostalgists, and that doesn't connote hatred, even if it is yearning for a past that was less equal.

Then, ChairmanPoo wrote in the next post:

Quote
The nature of the article and the disclaimer suggests that most haters are alt right. AKA with that sort of disclaimer they are begging the question

But, the point here is that the main bulk of Tawa's post was actually quoting from a previously-linked article which doesn't include any of the disclaimers you're talking about. It's just much more likely that ChairmanPoo was referring to the article which had actually been quoted from, and not the little additional HuffPost link in the later part of the post, just to clarify that if there was any confusion.

The "disclaimer" ChairmanPoo was talking about was that quote that Tawa provided. Which reads:

Quote
That isn't to say that all objections to The Last Jedi or The Force Awakens, which introduced the new cast are rooted in far-right ideology or hatred. For some, the story simply didn't conform to what they had imagined;

Tawa claims this is ample evidence that the article isn't trying to label TLJ haters as far-right. Structurally, that follows this logical form:

Quote
That isn't to say that all X are Y: Some (X) are simply Z

If that's a logically sound form according to Tawa then it should be logically sound even if we change the topic:

Quote
That isn't to say that all Mexican immigrants are rapist drug-dealing pedophiles. some are simply decent people

Look, I'm not racist. Didn't you even read my "some are simply decent people" bit? And I clearly wrote "that isn't to say all Mexican Immigrants are rapist drug-dealing pedophiles", along with that completely sincere disclaimer on the end that "some" aren't. How much clearer do I need to be that I'm not in fact implying that Mexican immigrants - in general - are rapist drug-dealing pedophiles? I put the caveats in, so I'm not racist, right bro? / sarcasm

Sure, it's not calling TLJ critics Nazis about as believably as Trump didn't call Mexicans drug-dealing, rapist, criminal thugs because he added "And some, I assume, are good people" at the end.

* note that ChairmanPoo refers to "begging the question". "begging the question" is when your logical structure assumes something is the default assumption, when you haven't in fact proven that it is the default assumption: it's form of circular reasoning. in this case, the article is assuming its own conclusion that "TLJ haters are Nazis" by including the explicit assumption that "not a Nazi" is a caveat to the normal expected rule that they are Nazis.

** But then, note that right at the end the Non-Nazi minority of TLJ dislikers get an additional jab where he hand-waves away all not-actual-Nazi criticisms of TLJ as subconsciously "yearning for a past that was less equal". So, what he's saying here is that if you happened to dislike the movie for any reason which he can't dismiss off-hand as you being a literal Nazi, you're in fact merely a closet-Nazi-sympathizer, secretly or unwittingly yearning for the sexist, racist, homophobic "golden age". Way to take back the disclaimer. It's as if Trump ended his "Mexicans" speech with "And some, I assume, are good people, except for the fact that they beat their wives", just to double-down on being a complete c**t.

There remains pretty much nothing easy about finding work, I'm afraid, least if you don't have nepotism/corruption to lean on. Particularly work that pays as well as a previous position, provides as much hours, vague semblance of stability, relatively equal stress, etc.

Beyond that, there's always room for complicating circumstance and whatnot.

In this case, I don't think he'd want relatively equal stress.

-snip-

Ah. That makes a whole lot of sense and I can't help but agree with it. Thanks for elaborating.

But really I just hope the internet dialectic of postmodernist neomarxist sjews vs. Nazi gamer scum one day stops permeating literally everything, like holy shit is that a depressing zeitgeist to be trapped in.

I really hope so too. It sucks that apparently there's only two sides and they're both so toxic or obnoxious. Depressing is putting it lightly.

That happens pretty often. Good and evil are, in the grand scheme of things, subjective.
