Seriously though, congrats!

Avoiding nuclear war is one of my favorite fringe issues.
I wonder if all the recent TV shows about cannibalism by Rhubarbin just_post
[–]Rhubarb[S] 1 point2 points3 points 7 months ago
Yeah, those are the pretty much the ones I meant. Recent for me is honestly like the last 3-5 years.

Aw, thanks! I'm a big fan of students and I'm becoming more inclined to radicals, so I think yours is pretty great too.

It wasn't until I watched the show that I realized how fundamental those books were to my childhood. Like, I don't think I re-read them at all after I finished them, but they def influenced my perception of myself and the life choices I have made.
Everything about the show (and honestly, probably the books as well) is so ridiculously hammy, that while I wouldn't call it bad a lot of it is definitely mediocre and nostalgia is a large part of why I continue to watch it.

Which measure was this, if I might ask?
[–]Rhubarb[S] 3 points4 points5 points 10 months ago
Part of it, I think, is that for a lot of younger people it's our first major political loss (and even without that, it's still an overwhelming one) since we've been able to have some sort of say in the process.

I agree about the gun bill, I didn't realize that about the senior bill though. When I first saw it, I thought it was something like what you're saying, but the research/editorials I saw seemed to say something different, especially that it was opposed by right-wing groups, so I'm sorry to say I did vote for that one.

Any good news is something to hold on to right now. I'm glad for you for that, at least :). Up here in WA we did okay, we took a couple steps forward, I think.

I'm thinking of getting a part-time job but I'm kind of worried/apprehensive about it?? by BuffyTheFempireSlayrin just_post

Break a leg!
[–]Rhubarb 6 points7 points8 points 2 years ago
I'm in this same position right now-I'm currently working fast food while finishing up my last year of undergrad, and in a way, I think having a 15-20 hour job can sometimes make going to school easier.
Idk, it's like, my days off work still feel like days off, even if I have school, and I have more energy to actually do homework. It's odd, but having the job helps keep me focused on my actual work.

Ah, I get so frustrated sometimes. At one point someone basically said that white people were the reason why the Civil Rights Movement succeeded.

I like reading Foucault but sometimes I think he's pulling my leg by Khjuin just_post
[–]Rhubarb 4 points5 points6 points 2 years ago
Yeah, that's the problem, I think, is that most writers are speaking to people with the exact same background as them, so people who are interested but without the same formal background, who haven't read the other writers they reference, can't easily access the parts which are important to them.
One of my recent anthropology textbooks did something that I think most texts should do, which is provide short blurbs about the academic context which each article was written in. Obviously, it's easier with some disciplines than others, but IMO it would go a long way toward increasing understanding for readers outside of the discipline.
They don't? And when they do, it's often because what they are talking about is either a) for other philosophers, who understand the jargon, or b) on such a level of abstraction that such vocabulary is absolutely necessary for them to describe exactly what they mean.
The way I see it, jargon often shortens the concept that needs to be described into a single word, so philosophy texts can occupy 300 pages instead of 3000.
I dunno, I don't have any real problem with jargon, especially between those in the same discipline. I'm more concerned when a text, and especially a text for the layperson, doesn't teach the reader how to read it.

Without context, I honestly would have thought any one of those was a real episode.
Gamers know some. Tell much. by [deleted]in killallgames
No, I agree--I don't know much of what I can say that hasn't been said before, except that maybe Skyrim was both a step forward and a step backward, and unless TES:VI completely ignores common expectations of a AAA game, it's probably going to lose even more of what made the series unique.
Like, the reason why the series was pretty cool was exactly why this image is so wrong.
