Stock Electronic Image FAILS

Instead of hiring this fake professor, they should just use battariser with those dead batteries and proof that it just works but they didn't and all know why.

Have you noticed while surfing around lately how many "promoted stories" are being listed on many news sites, all with provocative headlines and photos? It is all meant as click-bait in order to increase advertising banner view-counts to drive up the cost for advertisers and give bloggers and media sites additional revenue!

I get several requests for such paid "promoted stories", paid guest blog posts etc every single week, week in week out, year in year out.
I gave up replying a long time ago.

At least they managed to find some very tough women, being able to touch the metal iron without even flinching! Can't do that with mine :(

That pratice goes back well before the Internet and is still alive and well in modern mainstream news media. Many stories you here in the news on radio and TV are just like that ads for some new surgical technique developed by some company or some other product being pushed as a news story.


I suppose it is news.... 8)

That one there with the (no doubt added afterwards) smoke has her putting the tip on what looks like DIP switches, and her other hand appears to be holding a multicore cable. The smoke would be very appropriate...

I think we should take the "stock photo WTFs" to another thread...

Yeah, it's all funny and that, but it's also a pretty impressive display why a short grip-to-tip distance on your iron is so important for good ergonomics...  :popcorn:

Did anybody else notice that Fungus has posted pictures of three different women, with watermarks from three different hosting sites, all supposedly working on the SAME motherboard?  What's with that?

I did and thought it was rather funny. There must be a lot of those motherboards out there.
Looks like one I bought from New Egg on close out and had to return because it was defective.

It's think that smoke must be some really strong drug that eliminates pain...

What's with this shitty "hot nerd chick" trend? I welcome women to technology, but this is fake modelling. You don't dress like going to a date when soldering, even if you get high paid for your EE job.

Is this some kind of mental disorder related to fetishism? Fuck them, we are smart enough to not get manipulated in this dumb way. Even the dumbest of us (I consider myself a total newbie) is able to laugh at this sexist propaganda disguised as "feminism".

Anyway...

I consider feminism an etymologically incorrect term that is confusing and even very inaccurate.

Greeks and early Nazis were masculinists even to an extreme to consider homosexuality a the correct sexual orientation instead being just another of many options, in a way they undervalued women. And other cultures had women doing tasks we would consider a masculine, such as warriors and hunters.

You would be amazed a country considered technologically advanced such as Japan can have lots of social issues, but they have too:
- There's lots of woman practicing prostitution and most of the time to buy luxury items. Most men go to prostibules, even married men with their workmates.

- People work a lot, some of them suffer a "karoshi". They are too tired to form a family and have severe problems having a couple even just for sex. This is one of the reasons why prostitution and hentai stuff (mostly simulating preadolescent women) are too popular there.

- If you are an unmarried woman over 30 in Japan, you're considered trash. Even lots relatively young women  from villages or their parents even find foreigners to marry her, because they get desperate.

And Spain? This is a total crap. Sexism, prostitution, drugs, massive corruption (politicians stealing and preparing shady stuff, lots of shady nonprofit organizations, corrupt monarchy, corporatocracy...), socioeconomical issues such as guettos and very ignorant people that would make Batteriser buyers look like genius,  rising of homeless people, worsening healthcare, education and unemployment are just the tip of the iceberg...

Prepare to watch this amazing spectacle:

The destruction of our "civilization". Just enjoy it!

Love between men was seen as the truest form, and getting each other off was even all good in some parts and periods of what we now think of as "the ancient Greek world," but accusations of sodomy would get you killed. Probably a bit hard to get our modern heads around but loving and having fun with the same sex didn't make you homosexual in their eyes, but bum fun did and it was very much frowned upon.

I see nothing wrong about being heterosexual, bisexual, pansexual, aleatory-sexual (just to invent something), transsexual or asexual.

So they just touched and sucked their premises but anal sex was forbidden? I see.

Neither do I. I was just saying their idea on the whole matter was very foreign to the modern thoughts about it. Especially how they thought about love and sexuality and the relation they have to each other.

Nope, that's technically counted as sodomy, and definitely not just technically when it comes to the ancient Greeks and the Bible too. Oral* and anal bad and made you "gay," touching and shoving it between your thighs was all good and "straight" lol.


*And giving a woman oral made you homosexual because in their eyes that was the woman penetrating the man. Having a big un made you less manly too...
