Doctor Who is a Genderfluid...
You are wrong, trans means you made a transition from one to another in such a way that genetics and/or psychology has not changed. As an example, the sex change spell in DnD lore is not a means of being a transsexual. but I feel like being padantic
Trans girl means male to female, trans male means female to male.
Take it from a tranny.
No such thing as an actual transsexual, just someone who modified their body, sorry. Whether you think you're something that won't change you're DNA makeup, you'll just be a mutilated male/female after surgery, best to accept who you are and seek help if you need it.
What, you think I don't know that?
But it also claims that the doctor was "assigned male." Was that in a fanfic?

also if i'm not mistaken the screams are not part of the normal sound, so if you take down all volume in game it still screams, and it is always loud as fuck.

Minimum Wage Explained
Depends on who you're arguing in front of--if you've got a reasonable intellectual crowd, you can make your opponent look like an anal-retentive buffoon if he attacks the details of the analogy itself and not the point it represents.
But I suppose you're right, we're on FJ so this is definitely not a reasonably intellectual crowd, probably best to avoid analogies... And words with more than six letters.
Familiar with 'apples to oranges'? Analogies need structural logic, the precision of the quantities speaks to the overall notion that the same point could've been delivered through a more refined analogy example. Gaps of interpretation appear when any components of a concept (especially multi-faceted) has a rough fit, such as the 50.00 maintenance cost. If it's daily, then yes the analogy is fairly sound, yet an application of common sense (which a listener would likely apply if trying to understand an analogy) might raise such a question.
The main barrier to automation isnt running cost it's initial investment, so comparing it as wage vs maintenance is misguided it's a dysfunctional analogy.
You're right, its wage vs interest and payments on loans for initial investment for automation.
If you can get a good low interest loan with low monthly payments for your robot arm then you can pay for that instead of Daquan.
Forgot to add that the real difference is eventually you get to own the robot arm when the loan is paid off, but you never get to own Daquan.
Then don't be fucking wrong.
Automation in manufacturing pays off in the long run by the multitude of enhanced factors over having a human do the work. No down time, no benefits, consistent quality, more efficient work, et cetera..
This fucking analogy doesn't fucking work because it pretends that robotics aren't cheap as hell and manufacturing companies aren't going from machines that required 250 to operate down to 7, something I've seen in person with a company that extrudes aluminum.
There are still plenty of jobs yet to be replaced by robotics because of cost. The analogy still functions because a minimum wage hike will push companies to look into more automation.
Yes, many jobs have already been replaced, that doesn't mean there aren't still plenty left to be replaced. And every time the cost of an automation beats out the cost of a human--whether because the price of the human goes up or because the price of the automation goes down--this will happen. The point being made is that a minimum wage hike only accelerates the process when we're already having enough trouble dealing with the process as it is (the process should in theory just result in everybody working less hours to get paid the same amount, instead it results in CEOs getting even fatter and everybody else getting nothing.)
