>You mean you've NEVER used Linux? Okay then...
What do they mean by this?
It means you're a stupid millennial who has only dicked around in the built-in python interpretor on a mac and now considers themselves a programmer deserving of an $80K+ salary

When will autists learn?
Good communication skills and social grace is the cornerstone of productivity and excellence.
Nobody wants to hire a stuttering retard who's only good at this one thing and will be shunted to the sidelines and might later come in and go postal because he's mentally damaged.
>I have no self-control and I hate seeing people around me have a good time while responsibly drinking a nice social lubricant
You sure must be a hit at parties.
It's self-evidently asinine, >90% of the active posts on the board are a fucking jet engine of concentrated stupid. It's not even funny like /v/. Can't understand why I keep coming back
> I cant compute how peer pressure to drink is an immature and foolish mindset that accomplishes nothing
I can just imagine you in nazi germany marching past saying "just go along anon, just go along'
Mate, if you're seriously "forcing yourself" to drink beer or (coffee for that matter) you really should just stop, people might tease ya for it but who gives a shit really?
Personally I've been drinking beer since I well enough figured out what it was, there are good beers and there are bad beers but sure as hell there are beers worth drinking and there are beers that are downright delicious
I can't even imagine having a decent meal in the evening without a couple beers.
But its a to-each-his-own sort of a thing, you don't gotta pretend to like beer if ya don't like it but you've gotta fess up that that's a personal thing not run around spoutin stuff like that "people don't drink it for taste" nonsense, that's just not true.
The spokesperson for "why people drink beer" sure as shit shouldn't be someone who doesn't even like it
Some of us drink both for the taste. OK, not ALL the time. Sure, sometimes you'll just drink shitty coffee or shitty beer for the caffeine or alcohol content.
But sometimes we DO drink a good coffee or a good beer just for the taste.
As you get older your tastes will change. When I was 18, beer tasted like shit to me. Now I'm in my 30's, I genuinely enjoy beer. Especially an ice cold beer on a hot summer's day.
That might happen to you too, or it might not. Who knows, who cares? But just because *you* don't like beer or coffee doesn't mean no one else does.
I for one can't fucking stand the taste of rockmelon. Cantaloup. Hate the stuff, can't imagine how anyone could enjoy it. But my wife does enjoy it. It's just personal preferences.
>Going out socially with work colleagues to ingest personality changing anything.
There's nothing that can go wrong there, work more years on different environments and people and you will find out why this doesn't happen unless you are the soon to be unemployed office idiot.
>implying there's anything wrong with changing your personality
Sounds like a drink would loosen up your tight ass, fucboi.
> work more years on different environments and people and you will find out why this doesn't happen unless you are the soon to be unemployed office idiot.
If you have a drinking problem then you shouldn't be drinking with your co-workers. If you're a normal human being who can control themselves when drinking then this isn't an issue.
I am what most of you would call a "millennial" (only recently I turned 18) and god damn, american millennials are FUCKING retarded.
I've used a VCR, a floppy, a walkman-like device (real walkmen were really expensive!).
Come on, name something and I'll tell you if I've used it.
I drink it for the taste (some coffee is way too delicious!). And I'm not talking about lattes or some fancy shit like pumpkin-spice coffee.
I'm talking about coffee/sugar, or as I've recently been calling it, coffee+sugar.
>cassette player that was a common consumer device that any dickhead in the day would understand with our without manual
>somehow this should not apply to the younger generation
Nah, these are just stupid people. And they exist in all age groups. This is just an example of a blockhead that can't observe for shit and just impatiently tries doing all kinds of shit.
I think it has a lot to do with encouraging abstract thinking (outside of a creative environment) and spatial relationships.
Problem solving in the education system is secondary to how you feel about the circumstances and the solution.
Which is fucking irrelevant and unhelpful in the world outside of HR/diversity compliance and your blog.
Nigger it's a casette player. The fucking casette has 2 holes in it and the player 2 corresponding cylinders. This is kindergarten level.
not a native english speaker here
people now (especially in america) want everything NOW! or ME!. ME! ME! ME! ME!
they don't closely examine it first; if the "guy" (he looks like a fucking faggot) had looked a bit more carefully, he would've seen how it all works.
If it doesn't enter the first time you insert it, insert it upside down.
jesus, what was with that swiping gesture that fucker did?
>probably like, 13 yo
>high probablility he's never used any kind of descrete-media format besides /maybe/ cd's
i'm not really surprised he doesn't get the tape in the slot first time
that said i can't imagine what was going through his head when he put the tape to the top of the player when the cover clearly didn't open that way
>that poorfag pleb who have never tasted/smelled super fruity filter coffee brewed from beans which are from the Sidamo region
that shit better than any tea, no astringency, no bitterness, no burnt taste, no sugar and no milk
C'mon OP. For the sake of an interview you might as well count stupid shit like using Ubuntu when you were 12 or using something in a VM to look at your CP. There's no way you've really never used GNU/Linux, right?
When I was learning some stuff from Cisco Networking Academy that was based on the A+ material I noticed this and decided the cert was worthless to me. Not only was 90% of it SUPER basic (at least to me, whose grown up with computers like most of /g/), but it was heavily based on Windows and a lot of other archaic shit.
It's the way we talk, I think. We don't think much of it, and people outside of our community needlessly focus on it. So this leads to an outsider seeing us posting about anime, traps, calling each other fucking faggots, randomly shitposting about stuff, and other stuff that's really not a big deal at all, but to them we're a REALLY bad-looking tech forum, basically.
I understand where you're coming from, but both coffee and dark chocolate have the appeal of a slight bitterness being enjoyable. Black coffee? No thanks, but even coffee full of sugar or ice cream or whatever syrup shit you pour in it retains some of the coffee flavor, and I find that enjoyable. As for alcohol, I haven't had much of it, or any of it often, but I recall enjoying the taste of wine to some extent. Can't see myself drinking to get drunk, but if I was trying to keep up a facade for some reason I think I could drink wine with no complaints.
I'm an autist with social anxiety, though, so I doubt I'd willingly put myself in a situation where I'm being social and drinking anyway. If I did, it'd be with close friends and I wouldn't feel the need to fit in and drink with them.
Maybe if you're on /g/ for the entirety of the first hour. People outside of here, and even some on here are peddling Ubuntu and convincing you it's a GOOD thing to not "have to" use the command line. Shit leads to no one learning anything until they have to, and then when that hits it feels like you've wasted years of your life.
I've gone through these stages several times now. First when I transitions from *buntu and its spinoffs like Mint to CrunchBang and then later Debian and learning more about everything. Then years later when I decided to try Arch after only using Debian for a long time. It was fucking great, unlike all the memes here and elsewhere on the Internet. I'm definitely seeing diminishing returns as far as learning more after switching to Debian, but boy am I happier on Arch.
I'm starting to see that Arch isn't perfect, it's just the Debian is seriously imperfect and it shows. They modify packages, don't stay up to date even on unstable branch, etc. Still, Arch is a breath of fresh air for me and I've gotten a lot of friends to use it no problem now as well.
Actually, yes. If you think about it as making stuff look pretty it would be understandable that it sounds like just a waste of time, but realistically you're spending time in man pages, wikis, and editing all sorts of config files. You might even learn a bit of color theory while matching your wallpaper to your term colors.
I'd say you should avoid dropping the term "ricing" in front of an interviewer, more because it's vaguely offensive to some normies and it would be awkward to explain the definition than anything.
Most people I've met who worked at McD's or equivalent just get passed around the various jobs there, so if hypothetically you had to learn how to use their computers or something, I could see the OP's question being asked. That, or the interviewer could just be trying to see what type of person you were by asking some unrelated questions.
what did he mean by this?
I think it originated more with cars than computers. My dad always laughs when I say it. Something to do with asians, I think. They put flashy stuff like lights and decals on their car. I think it's "rice" instead of "nice" because they're asian.
We've turned it into an activity instead of an adjective here, but I think this is where it comes from. 'ricer'
Actually, as a faggot with social anxiety disorder, I can tell you that that it does in fact help relieve SAD temporarily when I am intoxicated. It helps me open up, and be more social, maybe to the point where I can be viewed as obnoxious. Drinking almost became a casual but very common thing I did. Nevertheless, I regret doing so and I have stopped ever since, but mostly because of the drop in mental well-being that I have observed, not because of serious health/side effects.
Yeah it's dumb, I don't drink alcohol since it lowers testosterone, luckily I don't need a job since my parent's are paying for my training while I move up the ranks in pro boxing and kickboxing. I would end up murdering one of my coworkers or bosses eventually, so it's for the best.
*as an anon
Sorry, I'm not gay, I just call my self a faggot because I'm anxious.
You'd be surprised at the amount of gays and people with SAD on 4chan or /g/
Xanax has the same effect as alcohol, but it's worse as it
I socially drink with people of my student syndicate and we laugh a lot making marxist puns so don't worry about me, but I never drink alcohol.
I don't like your way of implying your ability to get hired determines your absolute value. It determines your economic value, if anything.
So I assume you never send http requests to Linux servers, right? Have you ever heard of this neat new thing called 'world wide web'? Outside of 4chan, I mean, who as everyone knows runs on a cluster of Mac Minis.
No, that's Google and Facebook. VMWare and Oracle are filled with professionals who want to loosen their tie and drink classics at the end of the day before illegally driving home and coming to work the next day like most professionals in any field.

The future is doomed.
Not even close.
It's far more important to have employees who can work well together.
Employees spend more time with each other than they do their families, and while you can train an affable person on a technology or platform, you can't train the asshole out of a person who is an asshole.
