    I hear China is lovely 

    This is legit the laziest and dumbest type of reply. Ya he’s a commie because he wants the cultural norm of killing kids in their classrooms to stop.

    take a f-ing lap, christ. Laziest shit ever.

  3. Anyone saying this signals the decay of America isn’t paying attention, this IS America.

    Where else can you devote 40% of your municipal budget to have a bunch of LARP-ing power hungry morons with unresolved daddy issues in their costumes with their big military surplus shooty shooty bang bangs harassing people over missed turn signals, that when the real shit goes down, run and hide, then handcuff and detain parents of victims only to turn out to be so dumb that they then lie about it to the national media??

    Which leaves me with two questions: if cops would lie about this, in front of worldwide media scrutiny what do they lie about when no one’s watching? And- how would a police force that were made up of people that were actually loved by their dads function?

    Most folks would quit . Balls up and walk 

    Is it your lack of height, lack of hair or lack of….(ahem, cough, cough) something else…that you’re constantly trying to compensate for?

    has anyone ever taken a technical assessment/eval at Codingame.com ?

    Wondering what the questions - it'll likely be true/false and multi-choice for database - will be like. 

    Thing is, I'm a notoriously bad exam taker.   I could copy and past the correct answers into the correct fields, and I'd pull down a D-  ...  

    I'm kinda annoyed they are asking me to do this.   They reached out to me for this gig... It's not a headhunter, either - the company did.  I come from a certain technology manifold that is similar, but not an exact fit.  They know this.  So I've been through 3 rounds of interviews ( Zoom), aggregating 4 and half hours worth, and now they send me this tech assessment link at the above url... I'm like WHY!  You look me up and waste a day of interviewing to prove I'm not a fit?   ... 

    'Course, I'm just pissy because I hate taking test, too.   Still, a- nnoying

    Just saw this but google it- I think they have different testing modules depending on language. You will at least get a feel for how that particular service does their exams.

    it is odd that they are asking you to do it after approaching you for the role. Bizarro world. We used similar things to test python and sql for lower level roles- just to make sure no ones time was wasted.  Maybe it’s a company standard- no way around it, like a proverbial drug test. Anyways- good luck.

  6. Hey guys- took ur advice last year and bought a dethatcher then over seeded. Looks great.

    Question is: what’s the timeline for application of milorganite( my fert of choice), grub killer and  Pre-emergent for crab grass?  And In what order? I see some people starting now but seems too early for me. Any help would be appreciated. Also- am I missing any steps? Should I vigorously spring rake or would that ruin the sprouts from last fall?

    I really fight believing that without the artful unique solution the next best recourse, if perhaps for even avoiding the worst case scenario and saving humanity… would be the quasi or outright coup de etat …

    In a rare show, the far more stalwartly stoical mien of Russian general Yevgeny Llyin, broke into an overt emotional display in meetings between his entourage and NATO/U.S. military officials last week.  The personal accounting of those witnesses, they were given the impression that there is a morality conflict in the rank and file of the Russian war machinery. 

    They know. 

    The question is whether that leads to some sort of internal reckoning/self-guiding exit strategy - to put it diplomatically. 

    I do agree that we have almost certainly entered into a more dangerous phase of this than we were a month ago. With Ukraine on the offense militarily (an absolutely shocking development), the Russian economy in tatters ( although I would have thought we would see more cracks than we have until now)…again we talk about narrowing options.
     

    A strike on Poland or use of chemical/bio/nuke weapon to turn the tide of the war is something that is very much both on the table and a part of Russian military doctrine- escalate to deescalate. Which is why you are hearing things about the tiger- task force and very public statements about what NATO would do in response to such an escalation.  Very clearly we are attempting to let the decision makers over there know that, a) we know what you’re thinking and b) we will have a response.  Big meetings over the next few days…my spidey senses are tingling.

  8. Busy morning- Russia to declare 'martial law' on Friday? That's the rumor.  No more flights out of Russia between now and then so people are driving out.  Couple tech guys I spoke to had some very interesting conversations w/ border guards on the way out. They had arranged for "temporary remote work" to get out- phones were checked, took them forever to cross.

    Also Nuclear deal w/ Iran to be signed in~72 hrs...their oil is back on the market.

    They are going overhead every 10 minutes here.  Could just be training exercises from Westover but very unusual to have this many.

    There's at least 1 Army C-130 out from Windsor Locks...did a loop over Leominster and returning now. Looks to be training

    When Putin doesn't slow down or stop at all what will you say then? I get that you still think the almighty USD markets still dominate global politics like it's 1980 and cryptocurrencies and the yuan aren't having an impact. These sanctions will hurt the EU and US almost as much as they hurt Russia, but keep pimping them, I guess.

    Bro I’m muting you for awhile. Don’t have time for your shit. Suggest you pick a career and stick to it: either a YouTube schooled epidemiologist, or supposedly ceo of a u.s. defense contractor who repeats Russian propaganda basically word for word. Wild shit. Either way have a good one, or don’t, idgaf tbh.

    I think if that comes to pass we could see Russia based cyber attacks against European and US financial institutions.  
    Good times.

    There have been stories that Putin has spent the time since the Crimea annexation making Russia better prepared to withstand sanctions. Paying down foreign debt, integrating Russian exports into Western European economies etc. Also, and you may have been the one to mention this, the Chinese have a competitor to SWIFT they’ve been trying to boost called CIPS, if I’m remembering correctly. 

    To your point yes- he’s going to lash out at the west and Ukraine… it’s not going to be pretty.

    Ya trust me swift is one thing and more symbolic than anything else due to the sanctions put in place last week but…. Seizing/ freezing cb assets is an act of war. No two ways about it. It cannot be overstated how big of a deal this is- provided there aren’t gigantic loopholes- Just wow
