  1. i got my new bank card today and went to the ATM to activate it. the process failed successfully. i did the activation, got the receipt confirming that it all went well and then the ATM proceeded to keep my card. because i did it after i got off work at 10 in the evening there was nobody i could contact to get the card out so i have to wait til tomorrow to contact the bank and hope that the machine doesn't spit the card out in the middle of the night. i am almost tempted to grab a crowbar and go for a little DIY card recovery. quick update. because the ATM i used is not located in the bank itself they can only lock the card but not retrieve it. i have to get it reissued. the card that got stuck in the ATM will be taken out and destroyed at the next maintenance. the lesson from all this is "never use an ATM that it not attached to the bank itself and never use it when the bank is closed".
  2. maybe he was lured to the Blue Oyster Club and had a grudge
  3. what's more impressive is that 29% of the audience gave the wrong answer

  5. "The melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya" did it before it was cool
  6. i got a new case for my pc this Saturday because the old one was OLD... like 2005 old and it didn't fit the CPU cooler so i had it open for almost 2 years now. the new had 3 intake fans but no fan to push out the hot air. at first i thought to just move an intake fan to the back but then i decided it will ruin the looks so i ordered a new fan for the back which was supposedly in stock but it took them till today to notify me to go get it. its impressive how much of a difference a good exhaust fan makes, something i had forgotten with the open case
  7. every system has its pros and cons. the problem as i, an outsider, see it in USA is the "muh freedom" mentality that corporations make extensive use of to rile up people against any attempt by the government to put their corporate greed on a leash. every time the US government tries to reign in the greed of corporations for the sake of the population, these corporations engage in long and costly misinformation campaigns in the media to convince the population that their freedom is at stake and set them against the government. this has created a situation where the average american has to juggle 10 torches while riding and unicycle and trying to navigate through a pack of wolves to get a normal life, convinced that anyone who claims he wants to help is after his freedom but that's just my thoughts as someone who never lived there
