Do they feel like it gives them license to be "edgy", using the excuse of not being "PC"?

Yes.

I think that this forum, in contrast, benefits from it's smaller membership. It helps that a lot of the regulars are, as you mention, pretty smart.

No. This leads to SGITR.

You don't become a SGiTR by getting used to being one of many smart people. You get it by getting used to being the only smart person around for so long that you come to assume  that you are the only smart person everywhere you go. I actually think that Facebook groups foster the phenomenon, because if you happen to be one above-average person in a pool of morons, pretty soon you come to assume that you'll always be the smartest person in any given company. I think that's why so many people come here to tell us what; it worked on Facebook, and they think they'll just pop in and become instant celebrities here. Then they spout some stupid bullshit, and instead of becoming the adoring fanbase they expected, people here go "Yeah actually I think that was pretty bad reasoning, let me explain why". Butthurt ensues, and ultimately they decide to go back to Facebook or Reddit or Tumblr or Twitter, where they have a lowest-common-denominator crowd to tell them how smart they sound when they use big words.

Facebook groups are really fascinating. It's just Dunning Kruger all over the place. One particularly strange event was when some dude was trying to give legal advice to someone, and the actual lawyer in the conversation was like, "seriously, don't listen to this guy, he's giving you terrible advice."

I'm supposed to be working on my physics lab. I hate physics. I sincerely hate it. It's BORING AS FUCK.

What was the experiment for this one?

The little cart on a track. We couldn't get loggerpro to work with the equipment (most of the class couldn't) so we don't have any trial 2 data, which makes the entire lab pretty meaningless.

What do you even do in that situation where the lab equipment doesn't even work right?

No Irish dance off is complete without a Lucky Charms reference.

:lulz:

Accosted lucky charms, it's fantastically malicious!

So exactly a month after working on my own, I might finally get a coworker.

I think she's Basque, though going by how my manager was butchering her name, she may as well be some Lovecraftian horror.

With any luck, she could be both.

The Budweiser Clamato Chelada abomination was from a Discordian Meatup a few years ago.  About a dozen or so of them met in CT and stayed the weekend in a house.  Amazingly, everyone survived.


There's a thread somewhere that tells the tale.

True story.

Budweiser Clamato Chelada. The drink that Twid refused to try.

That's pretty awesome. I think I remember seeing something about that.
