asgs9324263dI have never listened to podcasts looking for answers. More of a stress buster or a recreational activity
arcsector2288263dNext time they ask a question in a meeting, say "do you want the answer, or should i go through a 30 minute powerpoint that has 1 slide which is the answer and 30 minutes of filler?"
SortOfTested24643263dWe're in the minority. There are apparently a minority of people, for whatever reason that can obtain knowledge through reading and experimentation
mr-user1364263dThey should at least give us the timestamp of the answer.
N00bPancakes7369263dYeah that's kinda a jerkish thing to do.
fzammetti764263dRelated to that, why does every motherfucking thing have to be a motherfucking video these motherfucking days?!
Like, I have no problem reading WORDS. Kinda dig it, actually. Has that become such a motherfucking burden to motherfucking people now?!
When I was in school, reading was just going out of fashion.
Not so long ago I remember moving to a village and the wealthiest person in the village proudly showed me his big home.
Which was hundreds of years old, and with big bookshelves.
And one book..
About the village..
Then there was that dating profile I saw it said under hobbies and interests:
I soon found out that the most they read was the "TV Guide" and anything more than a single line of text long, would worry them..
And any words more than 4 to 5 letters, well, risky..
This is perhaps why mobile phones are so popular, it can be all visual pictures and videos, and barely any text.
Nanos10749261dI did eventually listen to the podcast, and no, it didn't have the answer there !
I got a reply back from the person when I asked if they could tell me the answer and their reply was:
I think it wouldn't make sense out of context. And I'd not like to get it wrong.
So, the next time someone doesn't want to tell you the answer out of a video/audio recording they have already listened it, it might be because it doesn't actually contain the answer and they just want you to waste your time and try to influence you with some political propaganda shit instead !
