Off-topic but I'd add that they also accept physical media (VHS, audio cassettes, Blu-Ray, etc). Even if it's commercial media they store it until a time where it's legally possible to allow public access.

I went to get da chicken sammy and they were forced to serve orders in the order that they were taken. so no matter what you ordered or how quickly your order got done, you still had to wait for no reason. people were coming in and trying to order regular chicken that was just sitting there and being told it was a 35-40 min wait because people get too mad about someone behind them in line getting their food first  :delicious

I felt like such a cuck waiting in line for a chicken sando  :neogaf

it's decent for 4 bucks, but mostly it was good because of how hungry I was after waiting for an hour... I waited an hour for two chicken sandwiches  :snoop

They could charge $8 for the sandwich and the demand would still be there. Bigger piece of chicken than any of the other chains give out.

https://thehardtimes.net/music/songwriters-fiance-mistakenly-assumes-love-songs-are-about-her/

Quote
Local woman Namya Gupta, the fiancé of indie-rock band Oxford Drama’s songwriter and guitarist, fully believes she is the inspiration behind the musician’s love songs, several concerned sources have confirmed. “Maybe it’s a little tacky to use his song, but nothing could describe our connection more perfectly. I’m so lucky to be spoiled!”

When asked about the allegedly romantic lyrics, Marcus vehemently denied the allegations.

“Those songs are clearly an allegory for the fall of modern capitalism,” Marcus said. “I’m building worlds with my music! And if they were written about someone special, I guess you could say I’m writing lyrical love ballads to an egalitarian economic system. Anyone with any reading comprehension can understand that the songs are a collective call for the embrace of a transparent system of basic human decency.”

Amazon wrote "AI" (not AI) to help them find more varied candidates for jobs. But they used the resumes of all existing employees as the training data, so of course their AI turned racist and sexist just like their hiring managers.

Quote
WeWork is set to lay off at least 4,000 employees from across its workforce and could do so as early as this week, The New York Times reported on Sunday.

WeWork’s main business of subletting office space would lay off 2,000 to 2,500 employees, a source told the news outlet, while an additional 1,000 employees will leave as the company sells off or closes other businesses. Another 1,000 employees in building maintenance will reportedly be transferred to an outside contractor.

The combined layoffs amount to roughly a third of the company’s 12,500 person workforce that it employed at the end of June.

A source told The Times that the layoffs could rise to as many as 5,000 to 6,000 WeWork employees.

Was WeWork just the juicero of Real Estate?

Global Capitalism to blame for the Baby Bust.

TLDR:
Student loans
Shit wages
Expensive housing
Cutthroat competition for the best schools from Pre-K to Grad school
Anxiety-ridden professional class that works long hours and has no job security
No extended families anymore due to relocations to job centers, so no help with kids outside of hiring pros.

No shit that many are opting out of having families even if they want them. Fuck global capitalism.

I have no doubt that the cost of housing and education are lowering fertility rates, but the author does not support this (or her other claims) with data, and then she shoehorns climate change into the discussion (and not how climate change will actually influences the fertility rates of those experiencing the direct consequences of it). Is there any evidence birthstrikers--a demographic that doesn't have children anyway (liberal, non-religious city dwellers with 4+ years of post-secondary education)--are having any meaningful impact on fertility rates?
