    When I was younger I had pretty bad arachnophobia, mum was at work and it was just me and my sister at home. There was a huge huntsman (Big ass spider) on the wall, naturally I started to lose my shit and my sister came in and took the spider outside. Our cat saw this happen, ran out of the house, came back 10 minutes later and dropped the dead spider right next to me. Cats can be pretty chill sometimes

    The local hospital in the town where I grew up put away all the hand sanitizer bottles from the dispensers (spread all around the hospital), because the alcoholics from the nearby rehabilitation clinic kept coming to drink the hand sanitizer.

    Our coffee machines try to improve our lives by showing us animations of coffee being made, or nature photos of places god knows where on the globe, or alternatively, pleas to download more software and blue screens of death. Why they do this, I do not know, because luckily, the coffee part of the machine still works with the multimedia part lying on its little electronic back drooling.


    Since I am in an IT department, this offends me on a deep and primal level.

    I once ordered a faucet water filter on Amazon. Instead of the filter unit, I received a replacement filter. I contacted the seller with photographic proof of what was sent and they said that they'd send out another one and to keep my replacement filter. Two days later I received another replacement filter. Again, I emailed them with proof, they told me to keep the filter and that they'd try again. 13 replacement filters later and both the company and I were getting frustrated. He told me that he found a unit in the office and he'd send that one to me. Turns out that the part number for the filter and the product number for the unit were so similar that they confused one for the other but what do I care. I have two years worth of free filters.

    The "4 pins" that are on the home screen for the Xbone dashboard are actually the last 4 items you've used. I don't have Hulu pinned anywhere, yet because I've recently used it, I have it in the list of 4 underneath the game I'm using. My pins are directly underneath the home screen and I have like 15 things there so I know what I have available because it's very specific games and 1 app, which is Netflix.

    Just about everybody prefers Pepsi when they're presented with both Pepsi and Coke in unmarked white paper cups. It's called "the Pepsi paradox," and if you're one of those "brand loyal" types who staunchly advocates the superiority of Coke, congratulations, your brain associates Coke with polar bears and happy songs and Christmas and you've been successfully brainwashed by a corporation's advertising campaign.

      Or you might just like Coke more than Pepsi...

    • michael.everett.whittaker

      Or you might just think you like Coke more than Pepsi, because they're practically identical on a chemical level and your tongue isn't accurate enough as an instrument of measurement to detect the minuscule differences between what amounts to nothing more than brown sugar water bottled by different companies.

      You may as well be an advocate of RC Cola, with that logic.

    • michael.everett.whittaker

      It's not logic. Read the article. It's all just brown sugar water.

    • imabetastic Ignite

      I read in a book called "Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking" that the "Pepsi Challenge" market strategy worked because people were just taking a sip of the unmarked cups and since Pepsi was more sweet sip-wise it was more likable vs drinking a whole can which is were people would go for Coke. 


      That didn't detracted the sales ironically it was Coke changing their formula fearing the result without thinking about the fact that it was a sip not a full product experience  changing Coke to a more sweet version, that was what move sales to Pepsi.  laughing


      After realizing it and getting negative feedback from focus groups of being to sweet they change it back and that is why from there on the coke products often will have the phrase "Classic" under the logo.


      I read the pdfs of the Samuel McClure and Read Montague experiment. It doesn't proof people have been brainwashed by a corporation. It seems like it proofs that people that like Coke will react to it's logo because they like Coke  laughing 

    • michael.everett.whittaker

      3 weeks ago

      That's poor comprehension of the study on your part, then. It's been known for a while that Pepsi wins the Pepsi Challenge because it's only a sip and Pepsi has more sugar. The point of the study is that McClure and Montague study is that, when you control for bias, it's neither.


      "When Coke and Pepsi were offered unlabeled, the subjects showed no measurable preference for either brand. Most of the time, they couldn't even tell the two colas apart. But Montague's second observation was more surprising: subjects overwhelmingly preferred drinks that were labeled as Coke, no matter what cola was actually delivered through the tubes."


      Saying "It seems like it proofs that people that like Coke will react to it's logo because they like Coke" utterly misses the point. People who think they like Coke will prefer Pepsi if it's presented to them in a Coke container, which means they're reacting to the cola because they like the label.


      You basically came away from skimming through that with the conclusion that people react to the logo because they like the cola, so you're basically as wrong as it's possible to be, here.


      Your tongue detects chemical compounds in food. It is not an accurate instrument of measurement because there is no evolutionary reason for it to be so. It is not precise enough to detect any meaningful difference between ever-so-slightly different formulations of brown sugar water.

    Also, my dad once worked as a rep for a large multi-national company and travelled in a Leer Jet that the company sent him Melbourne to Sydney. The best part was that the 1989 pilots strike happened immediately after, so his flight back home has in a Hercules military transport and took almost 6-8 hours (which is how long it takes to get Melbourne to Singapore now). So...worth it?

    the new dashboard is extremely similar to the original one albeit more visually pleasing and faster it's base design is by far closer to the original than any of the others. It's like they wanted to keep the original design and upgrade it as they went but because the fan uproar (justifiably so) they had to come up with different designs to placate us until they got the og dashboard the way they wanted it. But I know that's not really the way it went down it's just a crackpot theory my brain made up to make sense of all the different dashboard updates.

    You can really see the friendship between Gav and Barb in this episode.  It's easy to tell that they've been friends for over a decade.  That's the kind of relationship that you can only get with a really old friend.  That's why I never understood the shipping between them.  You can tell so easily that their chemistry is from friendship.  They are like brother and sister in how they act. :)

    I work in a Grocery store. Part of the reason for the magnetic stripe still being there is in case the chip doesn't work. Could be any number of reasons but every once in a while a customers chip won't work no matter what, we have them try it 3 times and on the third try if it still doesn't work a message will pop up saying "please use magnetic stripe." TLDR, looks like it's a back up in case anything goes wrong with the chip.

    I bought a $60 video game Ebay once. It was supposed to arrive within 2 weeks, but after 3 weeks of not receiving it I contacted the seller telling them I haven't recieved my game yet and I was just wondering if they had some tracking information on it so we could find out what happened. I contacted the seller about 4 times over the next 2 weeks, and he didn't answer any of my messages, so I contacted Ebay support and they told me to wait 10 days, and if I still didn't get a response from the seller, they'd refund my money. 10 days later, with no reply from the seller, Ebay refunded me my $60, and a day later the seller messaged me only saying "If you do get the game at some point, please send $60 to my Paypal". Like that was the only thing he said to me, after I've been trying to get a hold of him for a month. About 2 or 3 months later, the game arrived! And I decided to say f*ck no, I'm not sending this a$$hole $60 after he ignored me for weeks. So I got a free video game.
