Gen Z woman are broken

 

This is the product of being saturated online and having no perspective of the real world.

I’m a materials engineer. Materials engineering is consistently in the top 5 salaries for batchelor degrees.

It took me having a PhD, PE with eight years experience to break $100,000 in salary.

Mid career salaries for engineering (20 years experience) is about $150,000.

A $650,000 salary is a senior partner in a law firm or medical clinic with 30 years experience experience.

These women have no idea what men of their contemporary age make, except for the tiniest fraction of a fraction of a fraction of a percentage of terminally online influencer bros.

Social media was a mistake and a generation is broken.

Friday Feedback

Last night, I pushed out my first article using the new citation engine. Please let me know if you have any feedback on it, thank you.

Hagar has a couple of articles out this week. Great engagement, as always. She has at least one more article ready to go and more in the queue.

I also want to apologize, the meme I posted that I got from e-mail was modified from the original, cutting off the original creator’s marks.

Bring a gun to a machete fight

Being a Florida boy, born and raised, I have a lot of familiarity with machetes as yard tools.

There is nothing more effective at trimming palm fronds than a machete.

Anything that can hack through the tough stems of a palmetto can hack through you.

Machetes as a weapon scare the fuck out of me.

This is a machete attack in Scotland.

 

This is how it was reported in the UK:

Footage shows brutal machete attack in Glasgow as source claims victim ‘lost limbs’

Limbs, plural.

Fuck…

Despite what anti-gun idiots say, blades are a terrible threat.

It’s not just “a knife” or “a machete.”

It’s something that can take arms off.

If someone comes at you with a blade, especially a big one like a machete, distance and a gun is your friend.

O.F.F. v. Brown, Order denying Preliminary Injunction and Summary Judgement

The Judge Said What?

B.L.U.F.A District Court judge decides that it isn’t law that is being questioned but facts.


In the Beginning

Finding that this case implicates important and unsettled questions of law, this Court exercises its discretion to deny both Defendants’ and Plaintiffs’ motions. This Court additionally finds that the record contains genuine disputes of material fact, which would benefit from full development through trial. Accordingly, Defendants’ and Plaintiffs’ Motions are DENIED.
Oregon Firearms Federation, Inc. v. Brown, No. 2:22-cv-01815, slip op. at 2–3 (District Court, D. Oregon),

The key takeaway is genuine disputes of material fact. Post Bruen there is no real material fact to be determined with regard to presumptively protected conduct. This case is a challenge to Oregon’s measure 114, which contains a LCM ban.

Biden expanding gun rights was not on my bingo card

Could Hunter Biden be the next poster child for Second Amendment rights?
The president’s son is under investigation for potentially breaking the law banning drug users from owning guns – but the law’s constitutionality faces growing challenges.

Hunter Biden could soon find himself in a surprising position: at the cutting edge of the fight to strengthen the Second Amendment.

The president’s son is the target of a Justice Department investigation scrutinizing his purchase of a gun in 2018 — a time when he has said he was regularly using crack cocaine. Federal law bans drug users from owning guns.

Since Bruen, most courts have still upheld the law banning drug users from owning guns, according to Jeff Welty, a professor at the School of Government at the University of North Carolina who closely tracks gun cases. But several have ruled against it.

Just a week after Bruen was released, a federal district judge in Utah ruled that the prohibition on drug users owning guns was unconstitutional because of its vagueness. Judge Jill Parrish noted that the statute itself doesn’t define the word “user” and also doesn’t say how the timing of people’s drug use affects their right to own guns. Parrish’s ruling — which the government has appealed — was based on the Fifth Amendment, not the Second, so it did not cite the Supreme Court’s Bruen decision. But Bruen only strengthens challenges to the drug-user prohibition.

You can see where this is going.

The Biden Administration is going to go to bat to defend Hunter.

They are going to use Bruen to argue that he may have been addicted to crack, but banning a crack addict from buying a gun is unconstitutional.

Yeah, Trump banning bump stocks and Biden legalizing buying guns as a crack head wasn’t on my bingo card.

Now I want someone to give Hunter a suppressed, full auto, SBR so the Biden Administration can get SCOTUS to declare the NFA unconstitutional.

Why do I have scars in my tongue.

Person 1: “I am sick. Newfangled Medicine is giving me sweat, shitters and blinding headaches.”
Person 2: “I am also taking Newfangled Medicine and getting that plus dizziness so bad I can barely drive.”
Me: “You should stop taking it and call your doctor for an alternative. Get rid of that stuff.”
Person 1: ” I paid for that stuff! I have to finish the 3-month prescription I have!”
Person 2: “It is not like money grows on trees; you know? That would be wasting it.”
Me: “Oh man, look at the time! I am late for the meeting.

And these one of a hundred reasons why I do not mingle with coworkers after the day is over or make friendships. It will either end up in an situation where I end up questioning loudly their mental capacity (and a free trip to HR) or I sever my tongue altogether with my teeth.

Falling down…

Hagar has a post up this morning. I’ve got an article in progress, but I need to finish out some work related things before I can finish my GFZ post.

On the mostly good news, I was able to track down my citeserver issue(s).

Here’s an example citation: [xCite item="LPGQXCDT" para=7 pos=2]. This says to add a citation to that particular item with a locator a ¶7. All well and good.

The problem is that the form that I get my data isn’t quite right. It is a little bit off. I was working on fixing it when I found tools that would do it for me. Of course, they didn’t work. I fixed them.

From there I was finally getting citations. One of the big reasons for this is to allow me to use Id. and short forms easily. That part wasn’t working.

Back to the supplied code. After three days, the debug output showed me that I was getting the correct answers. Just like the documentation told me to expect.

And while looking at the provided code… They are throwing away all the excess results. Even though my code was producing the correct results, their code was throwing it away.

That’s been fixed. I have citations doing most of the correct things. What’s left for me to do is to fix up the actual citation description to work correctly for GFZ. I’m getting there.

The amount of work I’ve invested in this might seem out of keeping for the return, but it is a pain trying to do all the correct copy paste. This just works.
