Being the posts, photos, and general quasi-intelligensia-type babbling of a moron half the poster's age.

    a while ago i was watching a movie with someone and the woman in it was getting MURDERED, and my friend was like “better turn it down incase my parents think we’re watching porn…” Do you not understand how terrifying that is? 

    Yeah, living in a death-worshipping, life-fearing culture sucks.

    dresdencodak:

    I’d start here and then just go chronologically http://dresdencodak.com/2009/04/19/onald-creely/

    When you’ve caught up to the latest page of Dark Science, then I’d recommend going and starting at the beginning of the archives. I’ve found this is currently pretty much the best way to introduce new readers to the comic!

    Dresden Codak is one of those must-read comics.

  5. Friendship confuses me. I don’t know…

    1. How often I should be in contact (physical or otherwise) with friends
    2. How to identify friends, as opposed to acquaintances
    3. How to disengage with friends (or people in general) when their psyches start smothering mine
    4. When to engage with friends
    5. Whether I need friends

Minimum wage should be linked to the poverty level. 

This is basic economic fact.
A business that claims it can’t afford to pay a living wage to its workers is admitting that by definition it fails to meet its basic operating expenses. That major multinational corporations can be “successful” while failing to meet a basic operating expense is only possible because We The People pick up their greedy/lazy slack through taxes and charity. 
And yet somehow it’s everybody else who’s a moocher and a looter…
And this corrosive greed is a big part of what’s slowly poisoning the U.S. economy. Money being hoarded at the top and put in “safe” investments and bank accounts is money that does nothing for no one. It’s just an elaborate means of keeping score. Money put into the hands of the workers does what money is meant to do: it circulates. It gets spent. The same dollar will go through dozens of sets of hands, touching dozens of lives, feeding dozens of people and sparking profits for dozens of businesses. The same dollar, in the hands of the rich, will generally do… nothing. It won’t create jobs. It won’t fund innovations. It won’t start businesses.
Less than 1% of corporate revenues become wages for workers. Less than 3% of the wealthy are actually entrepreneurs (people who risk their money on business ventures that create jobs). 
But 100% of the working class spends their money. That money creates jobs. That money fuels innovations. That money becomes profits. That money keeps the economy ticking.
We have been lied to about who are the parasites and who are the drivers of the economy. We have largely accepted a view of money as a means of keeping score and the economy as something that must have winners and losers, rather than money being a proxy for barter and an economy being a way to divide the labor of society and distribute the load of living

Modern business practice has forgotten what businesses are for.

  11. A Lesson Learned from Running Toast Bay City Hunt 2012

    coinpursehunts:

    It’s been about a week since the hunt ended. So, what have we (all right, royal we) learned from all this?

    1. Start promoting the idea early and heavily. People are often slow to decide to go ahead with anything, let alone get involved in a promotional event of dubious return.
    2. Make sure your hunt can be distinguished from any other events that are occurring. More importantly, ensure your hunt isn’t overshadowed by big events such as, oh, Relay For Life.
    3. Don’t over-complicate things like the signup process! I think I got nervous and botched that up royally.
    4. Test everything! There was a logical error in the scripting of the toast vendors which meant that, if one vendor redeemed some toast, all vendors in chat range of the hunter would assume the ‘we have a sale’ message was for them - and thus you’d end up with more prizes than you’d earned.
    5. Add metrics, so that you and the staff can tell how many people have joined, how many are going where, what prizes are proving popular etc. That way you can provide status reports, let people know what’s going on.

    When I mooted Toast Bay City 2012, I did so based on a very delightful ‘treasure hunt’ encountered in the Bronies sims. Basically, you collected tokens in a wearable purse, then redeemed them at vendors.

    The SPOD with this, as opposed to other traditional hunts, was that there was no railroading from #1 to #whatever; you could bounce from one to another no trouble. And no unwanted gifties cluttering up your inventory either. And, if you lacked the tokens for your desired prize, you had to come back later. Repeat exposure, to me, equalled higher chance of an impulse purchase.

    Now I work full time, so I can’t do such a hunt any more. Perhaps I could refine the system so that someone else could manage the enrolments and I’d just be Q to their M - and you lot’s 007.

With most of the build completed, it’s time to thrash out the paperwork.
Help wanted notice - check, I think.
Application form for logo designs - needs some rewording.
Application form for toaster designs - ditto.
And then there’s applications to - is it host or participate in? - this hunt.
Now I need to make a letterbox that accepts inventory drops.
Oh - and Linden Lab? Take a damn good look at SVC-163. I am not pleased that we have this wonderful projector functionality with shadows and no way to use it in scripts!

Ah, me at my freebie desk in the head office, surrounded by freebie furniture. Sometimes I think I’d happily move back to Bay City.

The poster for Toast Bay City 2012. You can see these in situ at World of Toasters in Dennis.

Don’t bother following the link - it’s long gone. It took me several days to acquire suitable shots, and quite a bit of work in Paint Shop Pro to make the base monochrome image.
One of my back burner projects is booster T-shirts. The image can be genericised easily.

  15. Goodbye coinpursehunts

    I just deleted the frankly inactive and redundant tumblr ‘coinpursehunts’. It was only a seasonal thing, set up before I knew how hard it was to run a Second Life treasure hunt. Especially one with a nonstandard mechanic like I had.

    Most of the posts were about the chickenfeathers regarding the running of it; the next four posts in my queue are pictorial memories.
