    This is ratopia, and it is fucking fun, but all the fucking critical data in the ui is scattered to the 4 corners, so you are actively sweeping every corner of the screen to manage the colony and having to tale your eyes off the monarch.

    I fucking didnt know I could shoulder tab through menus until I was 30 hours deep because the controller guide was way the fuck down in the bottom right/australia while all the important menu bits were in washington state going down to chile

    I can't think of a single external door I know that opens outwards.

    Back doors in houses I've lived in have opened outwards

    Very annoying when deliveries were being left round the back

    I've always thought the human reproductive system is pretty badly designed.

    I mean, I guess it works 'cause here we are and all.

    But it's certainly not how I would've done things.

    PS3 is a good design, PS4 is a bad design

    there's an extremely simple metric for it:

    I guess it's because I work in mostly commercial architecture where doors are required to swing out for fire/egress reasons

    there should be handles on these huge, super-thin TVs they make now. Somewhere. It feels like I'm carrying around a $2000 sheet of posterboard that somehow weighs 50 pounds.

    Computer hardware shouldn't almost always be matte black

    also every motherboard should come with a connector for the case buttons

    Where does the dude with the tight shorts put his phone? Wallet? Keys? Handheld game system? Earbuds? Inhaler?

    .. asking for a friend.

    Edit: HYCYBH does not count.

    The tech bros I know who wear shorts like the second pic just carry their phone maybe with a card holder case and a couple keys.

    my shorts aren't really that tight but they're far from cargos

    just reduce the stuff you're carrying or bring a bag.

    I leave my house with my phone, wallet, lucky two-face silver dollar, and a "just in case" lighter, now that I don't smoke anymore.

    I don't need a lot

    Phone in one front pocket, wallet in the other with a tiny multi tool

    I'm a parent of a two year old, so my keys get clipped to the diaper bag

    Those shorts are too tight on him, that is a poor fit

    But they're still better than the baggy cargo shorts

    Yeah there was a fire escape there when we moved in, but the stairs were in dangerously bad condition and also almost entirely blocked the side gate which is just below it, so my brother bought a terrifying saw and took them apart.

    They are of course both bad shorts ultimately because the only good pair of shorts is cutoff jean shorts with a maximum 2" inseam

    Nintendo consoles have fascinating design choices, both in terms of the physical elements - creating weird little systems that encourage development creativity, the way the controllers on the Switch click so satisfyingly, adding small mechanical features like a stylus holder or the kickstands that would probably boost the cost of developing the system but are done to create more holistic user experience - but also because those motherfuckers are mechanically designed to take a beating and I'm a big fan of that

    IKEA furniture has great little mechanical design elements; I helped put together a little table with a pneumatically lifting top on the weekend and those little Philips-head cylinders that catch and lock in the head of those screws with the built in spacers, that you just have to turn like 1/4 of the way to lock? *such* a good connector design

    Also the Robertson head is the single best screw and it's appalling that only Canada seems to use it. It can't get fucked up by screwdrivers stripping the head!!!

    I believe a good compromise between the cargo short and the two pocket short is the GERRY stretch cargo short for hiking
