My summary of neo yokio based on what I've seen about it on Tumblr by hoppetin dontwatchanime

[–]StudentRadical 3 points4 points ago

I didn't even know that Jaden Smith had started an anime career and now I'm enjoying the visceral anger from redditors towards it. There's like anxiety over anime getting too popular.

One dude is getting angry that a moronic reviewer claims that the show is a parody, others tell him that it is indeed a parody, this is countered by that it doesn't matter whether it's a parody it's still shit. Like this shit is why they should teach literature better (and probably more) in middle and high school. Even if it's legit shite, they'd still be wrong and obnoxious. No-one is clever and refined for finding a single celebrity annoying.

What should someone who has been falsely accused of sexual assault do? (CW for sexual assault accusation and discussion) by 1vsin yourpersonalblog

[–]StudentRadical 3 points4 points ago

What should someone do when falsely accused of sexual assualt?

If you don't mind me going a bit philosophical, honestly I'm not much into any grand principles that we ought to seek out to learn what we ought to do and then merely apply them to each case at hand. I think particulars are just as important and each case is a different one It's hard to say in general terms what someone falsely accused of sexual assault should and I for one don't have the answer here.

What could this person have done? This is in a liberal/feminist friendgroup inside an already liberal college campus, and so it's generally accepted that false rape accusations that are legitimately false are far and few behind.

This thing actually mostly concerns courts, I'm literally unaware of discussion on interpersonal level discounting powerful men.

I think one pragmatic thing is considering how long you'll be in these circles and to what extent you can avoid them. These circumstances, while bad, are also fleeting. Presumable there will be a day when most of them have dispersed to continue their life projects with other people. If that day will come soon enough (like perhaps next spring), it might be worth it to try to cope with it and refrain from trying to solve it.

Honestly I don't still get it, not only is it terse much like the tweetjam format forces it to be, it's also got this baffling n==12 and 4 or n==16 and peek(a) syntax going on, like I'd need to pick a paper and pencil to figure it out and I can't possibly bother to do it now.

I'm not into gritty reboots, but then I'm generally into seeing more gritty witch stuff in this world. Also I wanted to play that gritty Alice in Wonderland game but couldn't yet some lingering want to do so has remained and this is kinda close.

Hey it's not so bad that I started refactoring it, happened once with some awful code.

But honestly Pico-8 just makes me feel like button commands should be passed as parameters, Lua should have switch statements and variables ought to be local by default, ugh, what is this noise? Why is world so messy???

Do you guys know anything about noise cancelling headphones? by StudentRadicalin just_post

[–]StudentRadical[S] 1 point2 points ago

First of all thanks for all of the effort! This helped a lot.

anyways, what are your use cases for the noise cancelling? all the different places you'll use them can mean different things would be better but in general i think a good pair of etymotics in ear earphones ($100ish) would be better than spending the money on bose noise cancelling headphones for a few hundred.

All of my senses are wonky, either over- or undersensitive and I'm built for noticing just about anything, like I'm super good at picking up details that I suppose most others filter out, but the flipside is that they can exhaust and distract me too. Closer to the topic at hand, I'm very easily distracted by speech, music and random noises such as noisy chairs while studying and want to filter it out from the environment somehow. (Hell is other people.) This is use case #1 where I just want to overcome my surroundings and be in solitude until lunchtime. I've been using shitty earbuds and pink/brown noise, but it's hardly ideal and the I feel like the levels of noise needed is harmful in the long run for hearing.

I could perhaps just use ear plugs, but I think I'd find other uses too for earphones that would fulfill use case #1, they just Must Work for #1.

Use case number #2 would be headphones for exercise, especially in gym and outdoors, just to get rid of some traffic noise and gym radio blaring out dad rock. The former is bad for listening to podcasts and the latter just annoys me. They should also be sweat resistant, though I admit it feels kinda badass that play back stops while deadlifting. I don't need isolation (nor not hear cars and cyclists), just a bit of attenuation would be great..

I'm totally on board with using different headphones for #1 and #2 and the former is totally the priority. I already have good headphones for music at home, so I don't care about fidelity side of things too much.

I've started to realise one of my favourite things in games in the feeling of movement by oakreefin killallgames

[–]StudentRadical 2 points3 points ago

I think that this is actually A Very Good Take so thanks for posting it. I think exploration and movement is a thing where video games actually fare well compared to other forms, just making me a little bit saltier that narrative is seen as so important as I see the latter being done better in at least film, comics and literature. No matter whether pogo sticking jumping in Ducktales, driving around in GTA or building a raft and going on an adventure in Unreal World. Hell, I loved that roller skating game one of us is working on and moving was the only thing you could do. Or Canabalt where your only freedom is jumping. Or the simple joy of boarding the time travelling flying machine Epoch in Chrono Trigger.

Maybe they should add gliding to Minecraft too!

The Democrats who can’t quit Hillary Clinton by devteslain vote_satan

[–]StudentRadical 6 points7 points ago

ok so I, like wholeheartedly don't understand why supposedly pragmatic centrists can't let go off Hillary. Even if she was as qualified to be the POTUS as her supporters say she is, she worked 8 years to gain allies and connect her tendrils with everything and everyone to prepare for campaigning, led a campaign and hired its key players. To some extent this was a success: Clinton's success in the South during the primaries might very well be up to the connections forged to Black churches and their leadership. But the fact of the matter was that it all ended in a terrible failure. If you're a pragmatic centrist and a Hillarite, you should recognize the dead weight, thank her for her services and forget about her and look forward. Like this whole thing reeks of a massive self-own and I've only considered the most milquetoast criticisms here.

music genre stuff by Dogmantrain just_ask

[–]StudentRadical 2 points3 points ago

I might replace folk with country - historically there wasn't a huge distinction between country and blues. Jazz and Reggae connection is perhaps a bit iffy - I might use Soul or R'n'B instead.
