We call those the Rolling Opinionmobiles. I just finally put unit patches on my back window, five years later. That's the extent of my stickers.

I have a parking permit sticker from the apartment I no longer live in, and a Team Mystic logo. That's all.

I do want to get a "Vote Cthulhu" sticker or something similar one day, but I'm in no hurry.

Remember! If your best chance of getting people to listen to your politics is to have a captive audience at a stoplight, you might not be worth listening to!

...I don't actually have any stickers. I have a window decal from college, but I've gone nearly seven years now without remembering to put it up.

I had a Planet Express sticker on my scooter. Got a lot of thumbs up from people passing me by on the road and yelling out the window "FUTURAMA ROCKS!" etc.

Don't put stickers on your car. Despite what you think they say, know they read "I'm poor"

I honestly don't get the joke. Like, it's bad to have stickers on your car because people think you can't spend more on professional decals or something?

I think it's cause you rarely see a Benz, Ferrari, Limo, Tesla or the like covered with stickers.

I was merely reminded of the joke. By my other comment I was clearly not necessarily agreeing.

Then again, I am poor, so he may be right.

YouTube "are you still watching" questions suck. Big time.
Is it earthshaking? Monumental? No. But it is daggum annoying.
Look, YouTube, I don't want to have to stop every little house chore I'm doing to walk all the way over to the daggum computer to answer your daggum question. Yes. I'm still watching. Unless I can't actually touch stuff, and the computer is left sitting there while I'm covered in soap or cleaning fluid or whatever, in which case YES, I'M STILL DAGGUM WATCHING.


Okay, so, like... this is the internet, right?

I mean, this is a song, right?

And fan art exists (entirely sfw link to a search for "fanart" - I promise nothing about the links that search leads to, however, as I've looked at none), yeah?

And, I mean, there's rule 3- uh, trends that have been noted about the internet by certain segments thereof.

But... if all that's true... why is it so daggum hard to find fanart of Shamira? Heck, Nocticula, for that matter? Desna? Calistria? Sarenrae? Best girl Shelyn? And, let's not beat around the bush: given the... popularity of certain concepts on the internet, Erastil should, by all rights, be beefcake central (which isn't what I'm looking for, but would at least provide me with conceptual fan art to use).

(I have a similar problem with a lack of heroic drow, lack of Firefly OCs with decent art, lack of the WW cast including side characters ~15-20 years later, lack of maps of Europe without Italy, lack of Forgotten Realms' Sharess, and other such exceedingly and eccentrically specific things that I want for my particular games but lack the artistic skills to make happen, but I'm ignoring those in favor of this particular complaint, at present. Quiet, you. Also, Mikaze totally found one of Lymneris, so I'm not counting that one, even though I haven't seen anymore. Also, there is basically never, ever enough Starfinder artwork, ever.)

I mean, come on. These are, like, perfect OTP/fanart fodder. I just want some pictures for my gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaame.

Internet. Iiiiiiiiiiiiiinternet. You've failed me.

Sigh.

Not related to anything but I noticed it so I'm saying it:
As a complete aside, it occurs to me: there really aren't that many "sexy" dudes in PF's core 20. Guys include Abadar (I think he looks like he'd be sexy if I were into dudes, but, eh), Asmodeus (he's a devil), Cayden Cailean (he smells like alcohol all the time; I can't imagine that's appealing; still, I'd think he should be more popular), Erastil (only if you're into deer furry), Gorum (he's a suit of iron), Gozreh (I think there's a significant "bearded older guy" thing out there, so that might be a thing, but less classic), Irori (this guy; this guy should be popular), Nethys (he's literally two-face, but not evil), Norgorber (he(?) is mask), Rovagug (literal monster), Torag (as a dwarf, he could qualify, but isn't classically handsome, like Gozreh), and Zon-Kuthon (holy heck, no, please).
Gals include Calistria (explicit), Desna (repeatedly depicted), Gozreh (well... she's made of water, so...), Iomedae (about as sexy as Abadar, including the armor/lack of style), Lamashtu (not really at all), Pharasma (similar to Abadar, Cayden, and Iomedae), Sarenrae (she would qualify), Shelyn (she would definitely counts), Urgathoa (qualifies even as it's horrible). Of the guys, that's one that should be sexier, and two-to-four that could be expected to have sexy fan art; of the gals that's three that should be, and two more that could be. I'm not making any particular point besides this. Though losing Aroden definitely hurt the "potential hot guys" quotient, and others can fill in some of those gaps.


... now why isn't there more fanart?!

If it's anything like Pandora, that's intentional. They want you to pay for their premium service.

Something else that annoys me to no freaking end...

When you apply for a job, and they ask for your resume, and they still want you to fill out an application. Just look at the resume that you asked for.

If you know how to read a bloody resume, then wait until I'm actually hired to make me fill out 20 pages of freaking paperwork that is your application.

Why pay manhours to data entry that resume when you can have the applicant do it for free?

There's an app to keep that from happening for the Chrome Browser.

You don't need to data entry to have someone look over it. Actual data entry is only required for someone who is hired, not to give an interview.

Every good job I've ever gotten was resume submission only, with application filled after the interview stage. Every piece of garbage minimum wage job seems to want you to jump through seventeen flaming hoops before they even talk to you.

Ah, yeah. Never had one of those, so I didn't know. (The Army doesn't really ask for a normal resume.)

From earlier posts of yours I read, I was under the impression you were ex-military and not currently active. (In either case thanks for the service.)

Correct! Thankfully my current position waited to tell me to fill out the application until after the interview. (Even better, they were telling HR to get me in before the interview was done.)

From what I understand, they do it even for YouTube Red users, too, as well as users of their Live service.

The point is to gather information about whether or not you are paying attention/are present and whether or not their data/advertisements are getting to your actual eyes (as well as tracking any "excess" weight on their servers that "doesn't need to be there" and - at least hypothetically - as a "nice" thing to do for those who use phones who might accidentally be burning up their data by starting a playlist and forgetting it somewhere or something... look, I don't know, these last two are clearly excuses and are rather weak ones, at best, and the last is especially unlikely).

Basically, they want data on how their users use their stuff, and don't want users to "needlessly" watch/view/listen to their things (and its useful data to give would-be advertisers, too, in theory - "look, we can guarantee that people are paying attention to your ads; see?") but it's obnoxious and I'm seriously thinking of turning to other sources of entertainment (and have been actively doing so). They are, in effect, losing advertisement revenue and getting incorrect and worthless feedback from me and those like by their obnoxious behavior in attempting to collect information and feedback.

Oh! Oh! My current and immediate lack of pizza, both at present and for the foreseeable near future.

Related: my current and immediate lack of free cash! (This one doesn't annoy me enough to do something about it, though. At least not more than I'm currently doing.)

Is that a joke, or is TWC really playing up sex appeal? Because that seems weird, but I can also believe it.

It was a joke, unless it turns out to be true. Which happens rather too often for my liking (see a different thread: Making Bacon Without Pants).

Mispronunciation of the word "grievous." I hear way too many people adding a third syllable to make it "griev-i-ous." No. Bad.
