Search - "buzzfeed"
Nope, you're not a 'software engineer', almost nobody who ever used that title is. Particularly not, if you hardly know anything else than HTML and CSS, think that jQuery is a language and JSON the middle school janitor who always tried to touch you at night when you were still in boarding school, because your parents didn't love you, so that you now have to invent reasons for them to love you.
Unless you're planning buildings, have to take a lot of responibility and don't feed your colleagues to the sharks when YOU fuck up, you're not an architect either. All the more not, if you're a PM who never wrote a fucking line of code, except for programs you copied after paying a geeky guy you wouldn't have wanted to be seen dead with to write them for you, so you wouldn't fail class again.
If all you do is telling actual developers what technology to use, solely because they're 'cool', even though you just read a half-arsed buzzfeed article about it on the web, that still doesn't make you a developer. It makes you a fraud and an imposter, a simpleton and an arrogant cock, worthless and useless.
Quit your job, stop using pretentious titles you neither haven't earned nor ever will, and hang yourself with a thin, sturdy wire.37
Goddamned, how I hate these fucking buzzfeed style blogs and websites!
"11.5 reasons why this blog won't contain a single sentence that isn't utter nonsense"
"7 ways to suck your dog off without waking it up"
"63726 ways to take a relaxing shit"
Seriously, how bored and mentally challenged do you have to be in order to actually consume and enjoy this fucking bullshit? And who writes these useless, annoying, search result clobbering brain dumps? Why would you even click links with such idiotic titles, unless you are having a severe stroke while on crack or something, and don't know what the fuck you're doing?
Dumb three-word sentences that are just as stupid as they are stupifying, loosely combined to form a so-called 'article' that's again subdivided into more single pages than the arbitrary number in its title says it had parts. Whoop-dee-fucking-doo!
I already see you answering: „well, don't read it, then!“ – and of course, what a great idea, indeed I wouldn't even point my rosy arse at it – if it were only possible. Whenever I do a simple Google search for anything that is of a remotely general interest, I'm being thrown „17 reasons why greasing your shlong with pork fat is totally healthy“ at me.
Yeah, yeah, feed the idiot reader with spammy ads, except, I am not an idiot reader, or at least I'm not THAT stupid. Google knows my middle-stream morning piss nuances better than I know what I had for breakfast today, but it still throws these at me? I never ever even clicked or opened these on purpose. WHAT THE FUCK!
Whoever thinks of this idiotic fuckign shit, line them all up, and shoot'em in the fucking head. Since their heads are fucking empty already, a single bullet should suffice.23
BuzzFeed has an article featuring messy desktops, and tbh this made me really really uncomfortable.26
What's better, [some language] or [some completely incomparable language]?
I can't even provide any context, because I haven't put a single second of thought into this topic myself. Thinking is for suckers, you know, that's why I'm pestering anybody else with my dumb questions, but anyway, I need to know right away, will accept any answer that randomly recommends one of these languages.
I don't even know those languages, yet. They just popped up in a buzzfeed article the other day, I just remebered them.
Guys, I need your help, I'm so confused, because I have never heard the words personal taste, context and reflexion.
That's how you sound, you fucking 'what's better …' questions asking morons.
Your so-called 'coding blog' provides a hundred lines of code examples formatted in a non-mono-spaced typeface without syntax highlighting?
I'm sorry, but you are a tool, not a programmer or developer, and your blog is as useful as Anne Frank's drum kit.
Please delete your blog and sell your fancy domain, so that I don't have to see your buzzfeed bullshit in my search results, when I am researching solutions for complicated problems. And stop wasting everybody's valuable time, you stupid, annoying, greedy, self-absorbed, worthless fucking idiot.8
Idea: add a new category like “news” or “recent” where users can post and discuss all the recent happenings like GDPR or the Microsoft GitHub story.
Something like this happens at least thrice a month and I always see a flood of posts about it, followed by a flood of posts and comments complaining about the flood of posts (“this has been posted today”, “please stop spamming here, we have already discussion at devrant.com/xyz”)
A new category would let us bundle all the posts about current issues in the dev world into one place, where one half can discuss and give opinions all they want and the other half can just filter it out and read actual rants. It’s devRant, not buzzfeed or something.9
If you're having a bad day, think about the fact that BuzzFeed reporters have PGP keys for confidential tips4
Is it just me or did Outlook decide my antispam is no longer needed. All of the sudden it looks like I turned off my ad-blocker on BuzzFeed. I'm now getting a lot of spam from the stupidest things.
I kid you not.2
Facebook and Buzzfeed :(
I kept checking every notification which pulled me in to a black hole of surfing and I ended up using 2 or so hours on Facebook and Internet stuff a day (this was only at work so my days got so long because I had to stay longer and actually do my job). Found out I was addicted, read some articles about work productivity and how to be more effective at work, deleted social apps from my phone and only check notifications once a day, and now my days are much shorter and I actually feel relieved and free :)
