So uh apparently OESC (Oklahoma unemployment agency basically) is jerking me around and I really have no money for food or bills. I have no idea at this point if or when I'll be able to collect unemployment again, and I don't have any work prospects til the 15th.
Please help? I'm desperate.
Nothing I post is so unprecedented that people will still find it useful several years later. There are enough wonderful toots posted every day that there's no reason to backread through my entire profile instead, except perhaps for doxxing purposes.
So, since I like keeping things tidy, I use #Forget to delete every post of mine older than 4 months, except for the few that I've decided to keep. If you'd like to do something similar yourself, you can learn more here:

@dredmorbius @jaranta There are a decent amount of countries where the yearly minimum wage is less than the cost of one average textbook https://www.minimum-wage.org/international
In my country they only cost about a month's rent at most, so guess I'm among the luckier folk (and we're not talking about shipping yet, or the cost of an e-reader). A Ugandan's yearly wage affords at most _two_ papers.
That's totally plausible. I mean just deciding to read a paper or not requires skimming methodology and conclusions at least.
I read at the _top_ public uni in Turkey according to Times index https://www.timeshighereducation.com/world-university-rankings/2020/world-ranking#!/page/0/length/25/locations/TR/sort_by/rank/sort_order/asc/cols/stats, yet I can access _only a fraction_ of papers I need through my library.
Better yet, I'm somewhat of a power user, and couldn't yet figure out how to use the little access there is without campus wifi. Can't even use SPSS from home...
A symposium is a drinking party:
1580s, "account of a gathering or party," from Latin symposium "drinking party, symposium," from Greek symposion "drinking party, convivial gathering of the educated" (related to sympotes "drinking companion"), from assimilated form of syn- "together" (see syn-) + posis "a drinking," from a stem of Aeolic ponen "to drink," from PIE root *po(i)- "to drink."
getting kicked off Reddit doesn't seem that hard! it's like a club people join for the purposes of getting thrown out of, sort of like how SF writers would join the SFWA so they could resign in protest.
