I admit I've put books in the wrong section as a joke but it was homeopathy and I was like 14.

Someone throw these people into the pits where the homeless hordes reside.

How the fuck can lighting tech actually be racist? Unless you mean knowing how to illuminate different colors properly which is the entire point of lighting to begin with, they even do this for live action with gels and everything. You have to learn how to properly illuminate a scene so things are visible and different colors require different methods.

for example a dark alleyway and a character is wearing a dark suit, a direct light isn't going to look natural, but a light that's too dim isn't going to show shit. You have to light it so the character can stand out from the background and be visible.

Physically based rendering (PBR) does away with a lot of problems related to this.

Newer lighting and material tech is able to embed more information into the materials that current-gen game assets are textured with. With a PBR workflow you have a much better idea what any given texture is going to look like under a variety of lighting conditions. In practical terms, it means that if the gamma in your level gets jacked with because QA said it was too dark, you (probably) won't need to re-export all your textures. PBR tech also goes hand in hand with better shader tech like subsurface scattering and other maps to make human skin look more lifelike.

Of course, this guy Robert Yang isn't even a real dev, he's a professor at NYU. Nice CV: https://www.debacle.us/

Oh hell I've actually run into him IRL. NYU was having a panel of the Disney Animators who have been working with the company for decades and did everything from Bolt to frozen to Zootopia. He wanted to know why there were no black people in the movies. What was being discussed was Elsa's braid flip where it passes through the shoulder and the error went unnoticed, so he asked if the lack of black people in Frozen was an error too.

No kid wants to see a faggy cartoon show about other kids when they could have this:


It's weird, because I've seen people in places even like Reddit where they know/admit that kids don't necessarily want to watch a cartoon about another kid having an adventure - they want to watch a cartoon about somebody they can pretend to be. I don't want to pretend to be "a different kid, but in a cool setting where I'm still a child with slightly more agency", I wanna pretend to be a seven foot tall space marine who cuts evil aliens in half with a chainsaw sword.

I don't think he got kicked out at all, he looks too timid.

by kicked out more likely a young 20-something woman came up to him and said "excuse me sir, please stop or we'll have to ask you to leave the store" at which point he stammered an apology and went back to reading thinly veiled lolicon in the manga section

Idk why but I always envisioned Apple as a sort of faggoty place to work with lots of goddamn snowflakes and pussies and faggot enablers of all sorts.

I mean it probably totally is faggot central but fucking troons will always find a way to create conflict I guess.

It is. To be a troon and have Apple employees hate you you have to be a worthless piece of shit.

The God Emperor's black magicks are so powerful they compel his enemies to paste caricatures of his face on their cars.

EDIT:




He's lying. I bet he got kicked out of the children's book section for trying to solicit minors.   :stonk:

I bet he's not, I used to work at a B&N and we'd have some totally original super funny 'no-one's ever thought of THIS sick burn before!' retard try to do this same stunt on a weekly basis.  Usually it was one or two titles, but every now and then you'd see someone with a stack of like 10 books just dying laughing to themselves thinking they're so fucking smart and clever :rolleyes:

It's the whole reason there's a "comp. religion" and "Bibles" section (and various subsections) at B&N.  They're their own little world, nobody shelves them in Reference or History, and this douchebag doesn't fucking realize that all he's doing is making a headache for the booksellers who work there and have to move his little trophy collection back to where it goes, because fuck knows he didn't bother keeping them in alphabetical order by author or subject.
