@destraht Come now Destraht. You seem like an intelligent guy. You should know that there's no correlation between IQ and secular success. IQ is based off a European model for cognitive development relevant to the culture.
It's like Blacks making a model for intelligence based around musical aptitude and athletic prowess applying it to Europeans. Reasoning that creativity and physical aptness are a direct expression of neural efficiency.
Or Latin Americans basing Intelligence around an individual's propensity to be communally sociable and coherent.
Can't really objectively judge another culture's values through the lens of your own without glaring biases.Read More
@BTrack Python seems cool but it doesn't seem valuable for me to learn from PHP. I've heavily considered fastify for Node.js on server. What turns me off to Node.js server is needing to learn whole other stacks for monitoring and managing many Node.js instances since it is just terrible when hit with an expensive operation. Python and PHP have this figured out through FastCGI for a bazillion years now. Golang however can easily do concurrency for expensive operations. I guess that Rust would do it even better with shit tons of work but its too immature for that use case. I love my Webpack + Vue for front end though and I'm not looking to change that at all.
I've been trying to branch out from only PHP as a backend technology. However, no language plus framework has seemed worth it. PHP has warts and weak-to-non-existent concurrency but it gets the job done and the ecosystem is just huge. So well I think that I've finally found my next big tech stack: Buffalo Golang. I can continue to use my advanced Webpack and Vue experience. I think that a big part of it is that PHP just doesn't make my dick hard any more. It seems like it screams mediocrity on a resume as well.
So to be always improving I've been using a PHP technology that is at the least say 50% faster than oother PHP frameworks. I co-wrote a book on it 3 years ago with one of the framework leaders. The problem is that I'm very angry with the lame leadership of that technology. They call it community but they sometimes decide to just fuck off for months then that is just life. I've felt like a disempowered hostage a few times. Then they start back up like nothing was wrong as pull requests just sat there. I've raged to no affect. Fuck them. Now I'm just a passive consumer now as I use it for about half of my stuff.
So it feels like quite a relief to finally have a good path out of the ghetto. In the medium term it will be all Golang. I bought two book on Golang and Rust each but man Rust seems way too fucking involved for web development at this time.Read More
@tb87670 I've been playing Clash Royale on my android phone. Its a very good game that can be played in 2-4 minutes. There are usually several opportunities to play a game throughout the day. A 20 minute session is kind of a blow out because its fairly intense. I've spent $0 on it. I'm not telling women that I was promoted to Clan Elder because that would be a beta move.
@destraht Yeah, it would in reverse if the China were Trillions in in debt to the US. China's losing respect for the US because it feels like America's economic pimp!
There's little wonder why they're treating the US like they own it. The States brought it on itself though.
If it had legitimately focused on educating "all" it's citizens to be to be productive contributors for the sake of internal self sufficiency maybe it wouldn't have to suck off the teat of cheap Chinese commerce to the point of being head deep in debt.
@destraht The main problem is they can invalidate and fuck with your paperwork such as driving license, I-4 forms, W-2 forms, etc. For someone working in the US you cannot run afoul of the IRS or they use that dirty shit to ruin your legal life. If you are a drug dealer or otherwise living off the black market or not in the US you can ignore them with little ill effect.
@TheStoicCrane Oh give me a break man. Do you really think that it would work like that in reverse? Say the Chinese started dominating an exciting sport and one person of one unit of say 20-30 made a comment critical of the US. There might be a small boycott of the Chinese brand by individuals and fragmented groups and that is it. Do you think that the US government would be willing to ban that industry for it? I say that the US doesn't work like that. We are expected to treat China as a collection of individuals when it suits them and then to play the hyper cancel culture The Party speaks for a billion offended people game when it suits them. "their government would feel slighted". WELL FUCK THEIR GOVERNMENT! How is that? Oh noes some feudal lords who've hardly worked in their lives are offended. Oh fucking noes! Not that now. Honestly I prefer hysterical street 3's to that shit. The US and Europe have a lot of problems but when government stooges say that they are offended we tell them to suck the cock harder. Its the way that we like it.Read More
@destraht NBA basketball isn't about politics. It's about bread & circus entertainment.
The Chinese are mass consumers of this brand of entertainment so it makes sense that their government would feel sleighted if an NBA representative spoke against their interests.
There's no disrespecting a business partner without the threat of jeopardizing the relationship. It's just the price of business.
I went out looking for a 24 hour cafe to get a jump on the day at 5am. Most of the places are marking themselves as 24 when they aren't. I found a nice little cafe but they had zero paper and needed me to purchase using my card. I declined. How stupid as fuck is that to pay some loser to sit there all night but you don't even have currency needed to conduct business in a capitalist system.
