“They say “the 1%” are the cause of all these horrible problems in society, then they turn around and say a different 1% is completely negligible and couldn’t possibly result in anything that is at all important enough to justify all the ‘hate’ and ‘bigotry’ and ‘inequality’.
Just goes to show that if people are confident enough in what they say it doesn’t matter what they’re actually saying, people will believe them.”
“>The unnamed man had been found unconscious on Sunday by his girlfriend
>by his girlfriend
Daily reminder that a morbidly obese, pants-shitting ball of greasy filth who sat still for so long that he fused to a fucking chair was more attractive to women than you. That gigantic piece of shit managed to get laid and you never will. Let that sink in for a moment. You could be standing next to a titantic lard planet grafted to a sofa who shits himself every day, and women would choose him over you. Think of the smell. Think of how much effort his girlfriend probably had to put into feeding this guy and wiping up his shit. And yet, he was still more attractive than you. That’s how revolting you are.”
“What this actually tells me is that women are terrible judges of quality and I shouldn’t care too much if a man is a virgin.”
“the reason why records constantly get broken is because the athletes BELIEVE in themselves ok its not because of improved drug protocols”
“yeah bro but the ENTIRE russian team was doping and NO ONE ELSE was ok cause russians are evil thanks bye”
“yeah I mean the Russians doped yet the Americans still beat/almost beat them. But that wasn’t because American athletes were using drugs as well, but rather because of our superior work ethic and belief that we can achieve everything. Didn’t you watch Rocky?”
“Apperently this guy and OP have never meet any strong willed women.
Now I agree that in many cases women are not physically strong. This doesn’t mean they don’t have power.
Strong powerful women do not function in the same ways strong powerful men do and that where you misguided blind fuckers go off the rails!
If you rape strong powerful women, and they fight back and make thing real hard for you. Even if you succeed, this girl will not be broken.
No matter how many time you rape her.
Strong women are not physically strong but mentally strong.
In my experience tempered to the extremes of being borderline psychopaths.
Alpha males, AVOID these crazy women like the plaque! They know if crossed, these beast women set there beds of fire wile they sleep!
That’s if there being nice!
Most likely they will play society in there favor, manipulating whatever they, fucking whoever they need to, in order to rip your live to shreds.
The more you wronged them the more fury they, if you raped them. You’ll have hell coming in your direction.
Hentai never EVER portrays powerful women…EVER! There always week willed dingbats who honestly make for rather lousy character study.
Oh lastly if a man need take a women by force he is not an alpha.
Women THROW themselves at alphas, especially the crazy powerful women, that’s how they get there power!
Them alphas by the way take pride in this fact.
it is one of the thing that makes them alpha males.”
“I think people need to keep the /r9k/ autism and the social justice warrior wanking/”muh alpha” “muh beta” shit out of /h/.
Yes, the female sex have their own strengths, they are neither weak willed fuck dolls nor they are amazons who can never lose, they are just human beings using what they have to survive.
But why in fuck would I ever mix fantasy with reality? If I wanted to watch real rape I could watch one of those leaked videos of soldiers struggling to hold down a scared middle aged house wife while she screams and begs them to stop, her voice gradually becoming something that human lungs should not be capable of, or that video where the guy actually kicks a teenager girl head so hard he breaks her skull, he did that simply because he wanted her to stop screaming during the rape, sounds fun for you? Not for me.
Hentai is fantasy, a fantasy where my stainless steel dick is so good no girl will ever dream of pouring boiling water in my ear while I sleep after raping her into submission. A fantasy where I don’t need to carve my female opponent or cut her arm off to make her unable to fight.
>The more you wronged them the more fury they, if you raped them. You’ll have hell coming in your direction
The real rapists of the world, the true monsters, they are not above breaking someone legs or breaking all of a girls teeth to make sure she wont bite when giving blowjobs, all the fury in the world will not help you if the other guy idea of winning is making you plead for your life after breaking every bone in your body with a lead pipe.
Most of the stuff here is tame when compared to things done in the real world, most of those girls are “broken” with pleasure, and not with daily violent beatings resulting in broken bones
or mutilations/starvation/heavy addictive drugs.
I am here to fap, not to have some wannabe psychologist tell me right way to have sexual fantasies inside my own head.”
“This game, man.
I barely thought it would live up to the hype, let alone exceed it. I’ve been playing for four hours straight across only two systems and about five planets/moons, and it has been absolutely and utterly humbling. My breath is being taken away at every turn.
I just drowned trying desperately to make my way out of a dark underwater cave on a cold, lonely, massive planet, with ominous growling startling me from far across some rocky, eroded mountains against the backdrop of a massive dark blue system. Earlier I was marveling at a herd of grazing antelope-like creatures on a little yellow paradise of a moon with a pink sky. Creatures were screeching in the distance and tinkling piano chords played in the background.
I very much appreciate the technical and leveling aspects such as mining and trading, but most of all, this game has been an extremely emotional experience for me so far. I could barely pull myself away from my first system once I acquired the warp cell. No matter what I’m looking at, I have this excitement and this wonder and frustration that I am inevitably missing so much. I have never, EVER felt this lost. Space just beckons, wordlessly. What a beautiful, beautiful, titanic game. I have no words.
Enjoy, everyone. And thank you, Sean and Hello Games. Jeez Louise.”
“pretty sure sean also said they might not even be there in the same “time”
space-time continuum need to be aligned too, which you can’t really control”
“he didn’t really admit it, it’s just not the experience that people will get, like if that’s what you want you should look elsewhere
that doesn’t mean the multiplayer isn’t possible, it’s just that there’s no chance of happening”
“yes, it’s not “multiplayer game”, but that doesn’t mean there’s no multiplayer
like the tweet below says, the chances are just pretty much zero — in such a situation it’s hard to call it a multiplayer-focused game
but the multiplayer still exists”
“I didn’t think the game was this deep, but this is theoretical possible. According to the theory of Quantum Physics, two people, or particles, could exist in the same spot at the same time without being aware of each others existence. Its call Quantum Many Worlds Theory and says there exists infinitely many parallel copies of our universe, which are noninteracting. When a consious observer performs an expirement, all of the many worlds collapse to only one. In this way, it is theoretically possible for two players in No Mans Sky to be at the same spot without seeing each other. Pretty cool that a universe so large is simulated with quantum details!”
“It was just ONE test guys. Let’s wait for other people to meet up before saying it’s not possible despite it having a near 0% of occurring!”

>YES OR NO DOES IT HAVE MULTIPLAYER?
“Can I be real for a second?
This community is fucking atrocious right now. You’re all acting like a bunch of whiny, entitled little babies.
A tiny team of people made an entire universe for you to explore. They made it for YOU, and they’re going to wake up tomorrow morning and see that instead of enjoying it, this community of “fans” picked out the 3 or 4 things that weren’t perfect and are using that to fucking riot.
Guess what? The game was never going to be perfect. It was never going to live up to your hype. It was never going to be everything you’d ever want in a game.
What it WAS going to be was an impossibly big universe filled with mysteries and weird shit. I just played it for 2 hours and it was exactly that. What more do you want?
Is it buggy? Sure. Is it repetitive? Maybe. Is the inventory system imperfect and the multiplayer feature questionable and the structure unclear? Sure, fine.
But holy shit what do these people OWE YOU?
How fucking entitled do you have to be to explore an infinite universe in a spaceship and then say “yeah but…”
We should all be fucking weeping in our chairs right now at the sheer size and scale of the achievement. We should be showering the people behind this thing with the praise they deserve for pulling off one of the most inspiring games in recent memory.
Hello Games doesn’t owe you the world. Yet they gave you 18 QUINTILLION of them.
If you have the fucking audacity to complain about it then you don’t deserve it and you were never fans in the first place.”

“We did it! Two players: me and Psytokat met! The odds were not in our vaor though, but we pulled it off! After warping for the first time I stumbled into the starting system of another player… instantly, I messaged him, he backtracked, and we met at the same space station! Although we never actually saw eachother (we tried almost everything) the fact that we met is absolutely amazing!”
“yeah, but if you didn’t actually see one another, does this count as a “meet up”? I can be in the same spot as another player in assassin’s creed or any other single player game, but we’re still not “meeting up” in the conventional syense.
mind you, i’m not one of the people who’s freaking out about this whole Seangate debacle”
“I still think it’s prety cool ._.”
“>said it was multiplayer for YEARS

“He has never seemed anxious. This was calculated. The man lied to a guy while he was comfortable enough to be barefoot. The kind of guy you never see break a sweat when a cop pulls him over. I’m afraid to say, had he not been in the position he is, and comfortably lying for profit with no possible repercussions, he’d likely be a serial killer. Murray has lied with such steely resolve to the extent where he said this
>When he desired the possibility of green skies, the team had to redesign the periodic table to create atmospheric particles that would diffract light at just the right wavelength.
This is the most impressive solid one-single-strand piece of bullshit ever seen. He’s literally just talking about a color hue change, here. The man is a sociopath. He makes an effort to often mention how he sold his house to fund the Hello Games studio. Well enough, it’s true. He frames it, though, as “this house was like a blood diamond, I bought it working for EA.” Those awful, corporate, liars. I am nothing like them. I am INDIE, I have proper morals! Let me just get my game published by Sony and lie to you now. Chilling stuff.”

“I feel like I’m the only person who is happy I only had to pay $60 for NMS. I definitely won’t mind paying more.
This game is incredible. The variety of planets I’ve found is insane, animals are awesome, travelling through space is the coolest part. You look into the sky and see a planet and then you can literally just fly there. Anything you see, you can touch, how many games can you say that about instead of just portraits on the edges of the game universe.
Who fucking cares if multiplayer isn’t in the game, Sean may have said you can see other players, but guess what, as the development went on it probably got harder and harder to do with their time constraint. And we’re probably going to get it in the future so you can meet up with your friends and let them fuck you in the ass like you want so bad.
I seriously can’t understand why so many people are calling this game a failure for the content, I can maybe sort of understand people being upset about the technical difficulties but those will be fixed with the patch that’s coming any moment now.”

“It is a game of the unknown. That is the point.”
“You don’t just get to give a game a pass for being “unknown.”
“IT’S ABOUT EXPLORATION! THAT IS THE POINT! That’s like if I said to you “Do this thing where the whole point of this thing is this thing” and you’re like “No tell me everything about it so I don’t have to do the thing”!”
“As a gaming journalist I’m like “Tell me about this game” and you’re like “No you’re doing it wrong.” I’m a journalist, how am I supposed to…?”
“You don’t have to be a journalist to get all the information! You can just discuss the feel, the tone, the vibe.”
“So there’s a prescribed way to ask questions about this one particular videogame. Just this one. So it is possible to have an incorrect opinion about this videogame.”
“You’re trying to have someone define the color blue!”
“Telling me how to upgrade my ship is not defining the color blue.”
“It’s a pointless art game! It’s the same as Proteus, Mirror Moon EP, it’s about doing fucking whatever! That’s all it is!”
“What if “whatever” is upgrading myself? You’re the one telling me I’m doing it wrong.”
“A group of people thought “Well there’s people who do the plastic bag challenge, and there’s people who think there’s an app that makes their phones waterproof, and there’s also people who think putting their phones in microwaves will make their pokemon hatch faster… can we make this into a business model?” And so they did.
The only false part of that story is “A”.
Like this shit is what motivates me to try and learn a bit of everything, listen to talks on subjects I’m not immediately interested in and go on wikiwalks and shit, because this is the kind of shit people can pull off if I have no idea if something is the least bit wrong.
Supposedly professors and journalists are more educated and they point the masses in the right direction, like that’s their role in civilization, but what basically all of them actually are is part of the marketing wing.”
“Actually this is pretty smart, because now their shitty publication and its articles will swamp out all the organic rightwing uses of the term “cuck” in Google and Twitter search results. I wonder if George Soros told them to do this in exchange for covering their legal fees from the Hulk Hogan desaster.”
“Leaked documents released a few days ago provide juicy insider details of how a fabulously rich businessman has been using his money to influence elections in Europe, underwrite an extremist group, target U.S. citizens who disagreed with him, dictate foreign policy, and try to sway a Supreme Court ruling, among other things. Pretty compelling stuff, right?
Not if it involves leftist billionaire George Soros. In this case, the mainstream press couldn’t care less.. We couldn’t find a single story on the New York Times, CNN, Washington Post, CBS News or other major news sites that even noted the existence of these leaked documents, let alone reported on what’s in them.”
““The reality of it is I’ve lost my home, I lost my creativity, because before I used to love building things but now I can’t. There is nothing I can do.”
The kind of bullshit that can be peddled because the discourse complexity ceiling established by journalists is so god damn low.”
“The objection to hypocrisy isn’t to that sort of hypocrisy, but to much worse crimes that are being reduced to an accusation of hypocrisy to make the charge seem smaller.
This is like when cuckservatives call Jews ‘hypocrites’ for taking no refugees, building walls, oppressing their minorities/ indigenous populations while advocating for ‘tolerance’ in America.
The real charge is murdering America. I couldn’t care less about ‘hypocrisy’ here. It’s like complaining about someone who poisons your food while being very careful with his own food and publicly decrying poisoning. Nobody gives a shit that he’s a hypocrite – because he isn’t. He’s a murderer.
Don’t get hypnotized by words.”
“He deliberately understated the number of Communists in government in order to duck charges of anti-Semitism. The Venona decryptions show that everyone on that piece of paper he was waving around were in fact answering directly to Moscow.
Other anti-Communists had the same problem. Nixon famously discusses this in the tapes – he talks about how many known Communists had to be passed over to avoid the appearance of deliberate anti-Semitism.
But, yes, McCarthy was right about everything. Like Hitler, he may have underestimated the scale of what was happening. He certainly was aware of the percentage of Jews and hired Cohn in addition to leaving Jews off his list in order to avoid be dismissed immediately as an anti-Semite.”
“Economically things are bad for everyone starting out. 50% of the jobs created since 08 are in low wage service sector jobs with no real upward potential. Traditional masculine fields of work (manufacturing, for example) has been outsourced wholesale.
This, in turn, leads to two things. A drop in overall masculine confidence, and mating viability.
Masculinity is defined by society in some pretty simple ways. Primarily this is by having a good job with decent pay to provide for a family. If a man is unable to provide for himself, much less others, overall masculine confidence and self worth diminishes. To quote the article, “Austerity has eroded young men’s traditional means of value-creation so they have become increasingly reliant on their bodies as a means of feeling valuable in society,”
This leads to point two, relationship and mating viability.
Short of the destructive nature of “hook-up culture” (which itself may be derivative of the economy), most women will not be in a relationship with an unemployed man, and are not going to be overly interested in a long term relationship with a man working at Applebee’s (or any other base service sector job). Relationships have a natural conclusion that is extremely expensive in its traditional sense.
A man, with no job prospects must attract, and keep, a mate in another way. The only other possibility is by going for the animalistic nature of humanity by making yourself as attractive as possible, to be successful in the current status of “hook-up culture”. While it’s good seeing people get fit, I get the feeling its deeper than what the article is letting on.
I’ll leave everyone with this nugget. Venezuela has arguably the world’s highest plastic surgery rate. Venezuela is also in a total economic freefall and has been struggling for years. When people feel out of control of their surroundings, their future, their own lives, they try to control the one thing they know they have control over…and that’s themselves.””
“I wonder why it’s never people that have actually accomplished anything meaningful who post all the time on instagram about success, dedication, and hard work. Not just a jab at Mooncookie but at the fitness world as well. It’s only ever people whose only accomplishment is having a good looking body (which, if we’re being honest, is commendable but nothing that exceptional or noteworthy because anyone can do it with a bit of effort) that go on and on about success and hard work. You never see esteemed academics, physicians, top managers/CFOs/CEOs, engineers, or theoretical astrophysicists post these kinds of things. Maybe they go by the “show, don’t tell” approach and don’t have the need to announce to everyone how hard they work or how successful they are because their success speaks for itself. All this droning on about hard work and that just reeks of self-congratulatory bullshit.”
“While that category of people exists, there’s certainly also plenty of people in high places who also talk about dedication and hard work. Quotes have been around for years – you don’t think Joe Schmoe thought the lines up by himself did you? They got the idea from their favorite celebrities. The Rock, Will Smith, Schwarzenegger – they all have lines about dedication and hard work. And those are the faces you see on the posters.
It’s a marketing thing too. All this stuff about be yourself, follow your dream – this is stuff said by HR departments so they get harder workers who can be convinced into less pay. It’s self-congratulatory, but since marketing has paired it with the measurable success of a certain person or company, it’s now also an elitist club that people want to join.
When’s the last time you heard about some top guy in some top profession talking about how much he hated his job or how he doesn’t actually know how he got there but since he’s okay at it and he has kids to support he’s fine with having to deal? These people exist. In what proportion to the other types? They’re certainly not all of them, but also certainly not none of them. We’ll never know, because it’ll never be investigated, all we’ll ever hear about are how there’s so much passion everywhere because that’s what journalists have decided to write about.
Passion, dedication, hard work – these are peddled by everyone.
Probably because there is truth in it. If you don’t care, you won’t really try, and if you don’t do things enough times while paying attention you won’t notice new things or improvement points, and if you don’t notice those you won’t work on them and research or discover breakthroughs, etc. etc. you won’t git gud.
In the end I don’t see a class difference, just personality difference.
A difference in whether or not they wank at my face.”
“Fun stuff is frowned upon
Back in the day, OC was considered something every board needed to survive. That’s why you had so many unfunny memes pop up around boards that were mostly dead. We don’t remember them, because they were so unfunny and forced and existed only to give a struggling community some credit.
Now, OC as a concept is dead. If you make something original on 4chan? Prepared to be called reddit and ‘le ebin’ for making something original and trying to share it with the community. Also, if you ever use it more than one time, you are ‘forcing’ the meme.
The concept of memes has changed from something you did because you wanted to make people laugh to something that other people do because they’re trying to influence you.
It’s why /v/’s main export now is no longer memes, jokes, or good humor. But ms-paint comics about how shitty a person who doesn’t think exactly like the comic’s author must be.
But /v/ isn’t the only place, tumblr, reddit, and SA are exactly the same way now: The only difference is that the barrier to entry is lower, as you only need to make a snooty text post about how stupid and uneducated everyone who doesn’t think like you must be. Here, at least, requires some working knowledge of Paint.”
“the term Troll fell out of style as a part of the Reddit scare. There is also the fact that in hindsight “troll culture” irreversibly damaged the website.
Baitfish doesn’t really reward you much, it shames you for weak attempts and shitposting.
Trollface encouraged trolling, people posted it to point out trolls but the face was more like a wink or a nudge.
This caused the complete death of sincerity on 4chan, I swear from 2008-10 every god damn post was an attempt to ruse someone. Everyone was trying to be ruse master and play 6D-chess around each other.
It’s calmed down quite a bit but it pretty much cemented shitposting culture.”

“This is incorrect. People are getting dumber. Laziness isn’t really a factor.
College graduates are now less qualified for their desired careers than in generations prior, and aside from poor education standards, this is largely caused by a lack of mentorship programs in any specialized field due to the increasing phenomenon of “debt slavery” imposed upon the previous generations since the 70’s.
Old savants and specialists do not want to take extra time to train new students as they want to retire early to escape the widening wage gap. The students who are qualified for the professional work without mentorship must compete with imported labor, which in the western world can make a living wage and future retirement impossible to attain.
This is leading to a lack of interest in higher education and lower ambition. People in general have no drive to become smarter, only more appealing for debt slavers or to make money on their own, the former of which educational institutions have capitalized upon to a fault. We now see the fallout of this: degrees are useless, adults are staying at home with their parents after graduation (with piles of debt), and the savvy are pursuing investment opportunities and careers in financial management in lieu of producing any useful product or service.”
“There has arisen among America’s elite a Churchill cult. Its acolytes hold that Churchill was not only a peerless war leader but a statesman of unparalleled vision whose life and legend should be the model for every statesman. To this cult, defiance anywhere of U.S. hegemony, resistance anywhere to U.S. power becomes another 1938. Every adversary is ‘a new Hitler,’ every proposal to avert war ‘another Munich.’ Slobodan Milosevic, a party apparatchik who had presided over the disintegration of Yugoslavia—losing Slovenia, Croatia, Macedonia, and Bosnia—becomes ‘the Hitler of the Balkans’ for holding Serbia’s cradle province of Kosovo. Saddam Hussein, whose army was routed in one hundred hours in 1991 and who had not shot down a U.S. plane in forty thousand sorties, becomes ‘an Arab Hitler’ about to roll up the Persian Gulf and threaten mankind with weapons of mass destruction. This mind-set led us to launch a seventy-eight-day bombing campaign on Serbia, a nation that never attacked us, never threatened us, never wanted war with us, whose people had always befriended us.”

“there’s several difference between normalfag memes and the original memes, enough that they shouldn’t be the same word. not even fruits and vegetables difference anymore, more like fruits and cars.
this quote points out that memes were always very specific. they were always really handmade of things that would be quite obscure to anybody not in the in-group. usually they were intended as a one-time specific response to some post or person or event, i.e. some guy in that thread went into photoshop and put together something in that hour, and if they became memes it’s because lots of people in that specific thread found it entertaining and re-used it in apt situations. the more people who found it entertaining and the more situations it was apt in, the more well-known it was. but all of them had those origins. generator-style memes ala “demotivators” were never as big for this reason – they could never be specific and didn’t share that sort of guaranteed origin story, so people weren’t inclined to care as much. being in the original place in the original time is very highly valued – in that culture if it’s just a reproduction it’s automatically less valuable. being the guy to create a certain generator or being in the first generator thread was interesting but because they were inherently automatic and nonunique, they were second class.
normalfag memes on the other hand trace their origins to those generators. literally outsiders using second class materials, and for completely foreign purposes.
i could go on for days on this but in a one line summary the difference between normalfag memes and original memes are the following. (“normalfag memes” refers not to the literally not even meme “pages” these days which are actually just propaganda pages run by PR people who dispense their opinions through pre-recognized visual formats or through shitty MSP doodles, but to the widely-distributed visual formats themselves, e.g. “here come dat boi”, caveman spongebob, etc:)
original memes distribution ideology: “i remember an image i saw once that either exactly or with a bit of creativity fits this situation exactly!”
normalfag memes distribution ideology: “let me see what else i can stick this meme in so everyone who already likes this meme will like me too!”
normalfag memes directly reflect the mentality of normalfags.”
“Literally saw a post on the NSM subreddit today saying the reason people hadn’t seen dinosaurs and realistic creature behaviors like in that scripted “””gameplay””” demo was that that stuff only appears near the center of the universe and those guys obviously hadn’t got that far yet.

But we shouldn’t take [British philosopher Alfred North] Whitehead’s observation for a universal truth. He was writing when automation was limited to distinct, well-defined, and repetitive tasks – weaving fabric with a steam loom, harvesting grain with a combine, multiplying numbers with a slide rule.
Automation is different now.
Computers, as we’ve seen, can be programmed to perform or support complex activities in which a succession of tightly coordinated tasks is carried out through an evaluation of many variables. In automated systems today, the computer often takes on intellectual work – observing and sensing, analyzing and judging, even making decisions – that until recently was considered the preserve of humans. The person operating the computer is left to play the role of a high-tech clerk, entering data, monitoring outputs, and watching for failures. Rather than opening new frontiers of thought and action to its human collaborators, software narrows our focus. We trade subtle, specialized talents for more routine, less distinctive ones.
Most of us assume, as Whitehead did, that automation is benign, that it raises us to higher callings but doesn’t otherwise alter the way we behave or think. That’s a fallacy. It’s an expression of what the scholars of automation have come to call the “substitution myth”. A labor-saving device doesn’t just provide a substitute for some isolated component of a job. It alters the character of the entire task, including the roles, attitudes, and skills of the people who take part in it. As Raja Parasuraman explained in a 2000 journal article, “Automation does not simply supplant human activity but rather changes it, often in ways unintended and unanticipated by the designers.”
Automation remakes both work and worker.”
“The man whose whole life is spent in performing a few simple operations, of which the effects too are, perhaps, always the same, or very nearly the same, has no occasion to exert his understanding, or to exercise his invention in finding out expedients for removing difficulties which never occur. He naturally loses, therefore, the habit of such exertion, and generally becomes as stupid and ignorant as it is possible for a human creature to become.”
“With the development of the capitalist mode of production, the very concept of skill becomes degraded along with the degradation of labor, and the yardstick by which it is measured shrinks to such a point that today the worker is considered to possess a ‘skill’ if his or her job requires a few days’ or weeks’ training, several months of training is regarded as unusually demanding, and the job that calls for a learning period of six months or a year inspires a paroxysm of awe.”
“To illustrate how the deskilling process works, [Harvard Business School professor James] Bright used the example of a metalworker. When the worker uses simple manual tools, such as files and shears, the main skill requirements are job knowledge, including in this case an appreciation of the qualities and uses of metal, and physical dexterity. When power hand tools are introduced, the job grows more complicated and the cost of errors is magnified. The worker is called on to display “new levels of dexterity and decision-making” as well as greater attentiveness. He becomes a “machinist.” But when hand tools are replaced by mechanisms that perform a series of operations, such as milling machines that cut and grind blocks of metals into precise three-dimensional shapes, “attention, decision-making, and machine control responsibilities are partially or largely reduced” and “the technical knowledge requirement of machine functioning and adjustment is reduced tremendously.” The machinist becomes a “machine operator.” When mechanization becomes truly automatic – when machines are programmed to control themselves – the worker “contributes little or no physical or mental effort to the production activity.” He doesn’t even require much job knowledge, as that knowledge has effectively gone into the machine through its design and coding. His job, if it still exists, is reduced to “patrolling.” The metalworker becomes “a sort of watchman, a monitor, a helper.” He might best be thought of as “a liaison man between machine and operating management.” Overall, concluded Bright, “the progressive effect of automation is first to relieve the operator of manual effort and then to relieve him of the need to apply continuous mental effort.”
“In a classic 1983 article in the journal Automatica, Lisanne Bainbridge, an engineering psychologist at University College London, described a conundrum that lies at the core of computer automation.
Because designers often assume that human beings are “unreliable and inefficient”, at least when compared to a computer, they strive to give them as small a role as possible in the operation of systems. People end up functioning as mere monitors, passive watchers of screens. That’s a job that humans, with our notoriously wandering minds, are particularly bad at. Research on vigilance, dating back to studies of British Radar operators watching for German submarines during World War II, shows that even highly motivated people can’t keep their attention focused on a display of relatively stable information for more than about half an hour. They get bored; they daydream, their concentration drifts. “This means,” Bainbridge wrote, “that it is humanly impossible to carry out the basic function of monitoring for unlikely abnormalities.”
And because a person’s skills “deteriorate when they are not used,” she added, even an experienced system operator will eventually begin to act like “an inexperienced one” if his main job consists of watching rather than acting. As his instincts and reflexes grow rusty from disuse, he’ll have trouble spotting and diagnosing problems, and his responses will be slow and deliberate rather than quick and automatic. Combined with the loss of situational awareness, the degradation of know-how raises the odds that when something goes wrong, as it sooner or later will, the operator will react ineptly. And once that happens, system designers will work to place even greater limits on the operator’s role, taking him further out of the action and making it more likely that he’ll mess up in the future.
The assumption that the human being will be the weakest link in the system becomes self-fulfilling.”
“Engineers and programmers compound the problems when they hide the workings of their creations from the operators, turning every system into an inscrutable black box. Normal human beings, the unstated assumption goes, don’t have the smarts or the training to grasp the intricacies of a software program or robotic apparatus. If you tell them too much about the algorithms or procedures that govern its operations and decisions, you’ll just confuse them, or worse yet, encourage them to tinker with the system. It’s safer to keep people in the dark. Here again, though, the attempt to avoid human errors by removing personal responsibility ends up making the errors more likely. An ignorant operator is a dangerous operator.
As the University of Iowa human-factors professor John Lee explains, it’s common for an automated system to use “control algorithms that are at odds with the control strategies and mental model of the person [operating it.” If the person doesn’t understand those algorithms, there’s no way he can “anticipate the actions and limits of the automation.” The human and the machine, operating under conflicting assumptions, end up working at cross-purposes. People’s inability to comprehend the machines they use can also undermine their self-confidence, Lee reports, which “can make them less inclined to intervene” when something goes wrong.”
“The tension between technology-centered and human-centered automation is not just a theoretical concern of academics. It affects decisions made every day by business executives, engineers and programmers, and government regulators. In the aviation business, the two dominant airliner manufacturers have been on different sides of the design question since the introduction of fly-by-wire systems thirty years ago.
Airbus pursues a technology-centered approach. Its goal is to make its planes essentially “pilot-proof.” The company’s decision to replace the bulky, front-mounted control yokes that have traditionally steered planes with diminutive, side-mounted joysticks was one expression of that goal. The game-like controllers send inputs to the flight computers efficiently, with minimal manual effort, but they don’t provide pilots with tactile feedback. Consistent with the ideal of the glass cockpit, they emphasize the pilot’s role as a computer operator rather than as an aviator. Airbus has also programmed its computers to override pilots’ instructions in certain situations in order to keep the jet within the software-specified parameters of its flight envelope. The software, not the pilot, wields ultimate control.
Boeing has taken a more human-centered tack in designing its fly-by-wire craft. […] The aviator retains final authority over maneuvers, even in extreme circumstances. And not only has Boeing kept the big yokes of yore, it has designed them to provide artificial feedback that mimics what pilots felt back when they had direct [hydraulic] control over a plane’s steering mechanisms. […] Research has found that tactile, or haptic, feedback is significantly more effective than visual cues alone in alerting pilots to important changes in a plane’s orientation and operation […] And because the brain processes tactile signals in a different way than visual signals, “haptic warnings” don’t tend to “interfere with the performance of concurrent visual tasks.”
“Video games tend to be loathed by people who have never played them. That’s understandable, given the gore involved, but it’s a shame. In addition to their considerable ingenuity and occasional beauty, the best games provide a model for the design of software. They show how applications can encourage the development of skills rather than their atrophy. To master a video game, a player has to struggle through challenges of increasing difficulty, always pushing the limits of his talent. Every mission has a goal, there are rewards for doing well, and the feedback (an eruption of blood, perhaps) is immediate and often visceral. Games promote a state of flow, inspiring players to repeat tricky maneuvers until they become second nature. The skill a gamer learns may be trivial – how to manipulate a plastic controller to drive an imaginary wagon over an imaginary bridge, say – but he’ll learn it thoroughly, and he’ll be able to exercise it again in the next mission or he next game. He’ll become an expert, and he’ll have a blast along the way.
When it comes to the software we use in our personal lives, video games are an exception. Most popular apps, gadgets, and online services are built for convenience, or as their makers say, “usability.” Requiring only a few taps, swipes, or clicks, the programs can be mastered with little study or practice. Like the automated systems used in industry and commerce, they’ve been carefully designed to shift the burden of thought from people to computers. Even the high-end programs used by musicians, record producers, filmmakers, and photographers place an ever stronger emphasis on ease of use. Complex audio and visual effects, which once demanded expert know-how, can be achieved by pushing a button or dragging a slider. The underlying concepts need not be understood, as they’ve been incorporated into software routines. This has the very real benefit of making the software useful to a broader group of people – those who want to get the effects without the effort. But the cost of accommodating the dilettante is a demeaning of expertise.”
“In suggesting video games as a model for programmers, I’m not endorsing the voguish software-design practice that goes by the ugly name “gamification.” […] Even when used for ostensibly benign purposes, such as dieting, gamification wields a cynical power. far from being an antidote to technology-centered design, it takes the practice to an extreme. It seeks to automate human will.”
“In [Google’s search engine’s] original form, it presented you with nothing but an empty text box. The interface was a model of simplicity, but the service still required you to think about your query, to consciously compose and refine a set of keywords to get the best results. That’s no longer necessary. In 2008, the company introduced Google Suggest, an autocomplete routine that uses prediction algorithms to anticipate what you’re looking fr. Now, as soon as you type a letter into the search box, Google offers a set of suggestions for how to phrase your query. With each succeeding letter, a new set of suggestions pops up. Underlying the company’s hyperactive solicitude is a dogged, almost monomaniacal pursuit of efficiency. Taking the misanthropic view of automation, Google has come to see human cognition as creaky and inexact, a cumbersome biological process better handled by a computer. “I envision some years from now that the majority of search queries will be answered without you actually asking,” say Ray Kurzweil, the inventor and futurist who in 2012 was appointed Google’s director of engineering. The company will “just know this is something that you’re going to want to see.” The ultimate goal is to fully automate the act of searching, to take human volition out of the picture.”
“[T]here’s something repugnant about applying the bureaucratic ideals of speed, productivity, and standardization to our relations with others. The most meaningful bonds aren’t forged through transactions in a marketplace or other routinized exchanges of data. People aren’t nodes on a network grid. The bonds require trust and courtesy and sacrifice, all of which, at least to a technocrat’s mind, are sources of inefficiency and inconvenience. Removing the friction from social attachments doesn’t strengthen them, it weakens them. It makes them more like the attachments between consumers and products – easily formed and just as easily broken.”

Compare something like that with little investment (and thus little investment if it fails) to something with a bigger investment that the majority wants.
What if popular X game comes out when you happen to release your big investment product that the majority wanted and your investment ends up bombing? It’s just profit margins, selling cheap near guaranteed successes are better than taking a chance regardless of what customers really want.
Your logic is flawed because Microtransactions are incredibly cheap to implement. Which means Profit margins can be made on only 1% of people buying.
Even if 99% of players buy the game but reject them, them companies will still consider microtransactions profitable enough to implement.”

“It was the cheapest of cheap shots because, as I noted in a column two years ago, almost no one majors in art history. Art history majors account for less than 0.2 percent of working adults with college degrees.
It was also a cheap shot because art history isn’t a major naive kids fall into because they’ve heard a college degree — any college degree — will get you a good job. It’s an intellectually demanding major, requiring the memorization and mastery of a large body of visual material, a facility for foreign languages, and the ability to write clearly and persuasively. And it’s famously elitist.
In fact, the reason pundits instinctively pick on art history is that it is seems effete. It’s stereotypically a field for prep school graduates, especially women, with plenty of family wealth to fall back on. In fact, a New York Times analysis of Census data shows that art history majors are wildly overrepresented among those in the top 1 percent of incomes. Perhaps the causality runs from art history to high incomes, but I doubt it.
If the president had been serious about his message, he would have compared learning a skilled trade to majors that are actually popular, such as communications and psychology. It would have been much braver and more serious to take on the less-rigorous majors that attract lots of students. But it wouldn’t have gotten a laugh.”

Why bother arguing points when you can argue the person, destabilize them, and make them look like fools of themselves? Most people can’t be swayed by arguments, but most people can be swayed by insults.”
