If only they made the hole square....

That's optimization for you. Just a 27% increase in size would allow a whole lot of more shapes, but think of the economy!

[-] Sabata11792@ani.social 6 points 1 month ago

We don't want squares in society. Your free to make your own hole as long as you don't modify the walls or use the hole.

What is the real context of this pic ?

[-] Tier1BuildABear@lemmy.world 8 points 1 month ago

The character is Gowron, from Star Trek TNG and DS9. It's an edit though.

[-] Asafum@feddit.nl 7 points 1 month ago

Kingons from Star Trek have combat as a major part of their society/culture. They always seek honor and glory (in combat)

And jussssst in case anyone doesn't get it, we call that a "glory hole" and... Yeah... Look it up, but only if you're not at work and are over 18 lol

No, it is a hole, of glory.

[-] Hupf@feddit.de 15 points 1 month ago
[-] ICastFist@programming.dev 7 points 1 month ago

Full of glories to be had

[-] Sabata11792@ani.social 47 points 1 month ago

Just be yourself by changing everything about yourself until society approves or you will be ejected.

[-] lightnsfw@reddthat.com 26 points 1 month ago

I recently made a comment bitching about how I didn't have time to enjoy my life because of the 9-5 grind and one of the replies I got basically amounted to this and "get screened for depression". No shit I'm depressed, I'm not compatible with the world I live in.

[-] BilboBargains@lemmy.world 16 points 1 month ago

In the UK if you need an anti depressant, they will be prescribed after a ten minute conversation. On the other hand if you want to treat the underlying condition that is causing the depression you have a very steep hill to climb. For example, it is estimated that around 30% of male prisoners have ADHD. Lately I have stopped thinking of the UK as an ethical society.

[-] lightnsfw@reddthat.com 5 points 1 month ago

Yeah, I could probably get something prescribed but I'm not really interested in slapping a bandaid on a larger issue. It's just frustrating that I'm not even able to vent without some asshole dismissing my perspective.

[-] Sabata11792@ani.social 5 points 1 month ago

Best I could do is a home made Ai therapist. I'm not rich enough to buy emotional and psycological support.

[-] ThatWeirdGuy1001@lemmy.world 37 points 1 month ago

That's right, it goes in the square hole.

Wait until you learn about the job market

[-] enbyecho@lemmy.world 13 points 1 month ago

The difference is that jobs and places to work are extremely diverse. It's not always easy but you can find something that at least is a tolerable way to make a living. For most folks there are lots of options. With the education system... if you don't fit into that cookie-cutter hole, there are no alternatives except don't go, which is straight up illegal in a lot of places until your 18.

[-] ICastFist@programming.dev 23 points 1 month ago

I think most education systems actually work the other way around, the hole's there, but the teachers will hammer students into the "right" shape

[-] MystikIncarnate@lemmy.ca 13 points 1 month ago

Why do you think that hole has so many cracks around it?

[-] ByteJunk@lemmy.world 21 points 1 month ago

This is such a bullshit moral for stories, and it's so overused that it boggles my brain. It's just an outright lie - accepting oneself will NOT magically solve all of one's problems, that's not how reality works.

[-] EncryptKeeper@lemmy.world 17 points 1 month ago* (last edited 1 month ago)

I think that there’s a comfy middle ground between giving into every horrible trait you have to the detriment of everyone around you, and molding yourself into a character just to please everyone around you.

Learning how to “Be yourself” just means learning how to take your core personality and cultivate it into being your own person that also knows how to get along well with society at large.

[-] MystikIncarnate@lemmy.ca 5 points 1 month ago

This is definitely true. My litmus test is simply empathy. If I were them, would I want to have a stranger (me) do this thing I'm about to do? If the answer is no, then I don't do it.

Pretty sure the triangle can fit through that hole.

Add the square as well, since it doesn't appear to be a cube.

[-] MudMan@fedia.io 14 points 1 month ago

So... which education system would that be?

I acknowledge that online the assumption is whenever you see memes like these it's always about the US, but maybe having that assumption is me internalizing that weirdness?

[-] Deceptichum@sh.itjust.works 25 points 1 month ago* (last edited 1 month ago)

What education system is completely fair and equal in means and opportunity for children?

[-] MudMan@fedia.io 12 points 1 month ago

Are you American? Because "if it's not perfect it's just as bad as ours" is something I hear a lot from Americans and don't think that's how this works.

One where profit motive doesn't exist and the exams are only a minor fraction of the passing rubrics.

[-] joneskind@lemmy.world 10 points 1 month ago* (last edited 1 month ago)

Why are you am? Did you try not to be am? I was am myself but myself being am wasn’t fitting well. Well fuck it there’s nothing wrong with being am and well. I am am too and proud of it.

EDIT: This comment is a remnant of past times. Only the ones who were there before will understand it.

To be fair, the first panel is entirely unnecessary.
