THE DOLL EXPERIMENT AKA WE FAILED THESE CHILDREN

Image
Well I looked it up and it broke my heart. It's called "The Doll Experiment". It was preformed several times over the years. Black children are faced with 2 dolls, one white and one black. They are asked what doll is beautiful. Almost all the children said the white doll because it was white. When asked what doll is the bad doll they pointed at the black doll.
You can see the reflection of internal thinking. These poor children think they are not beautiful and are some how bad simply because of the color of their skin. It is obviously a reflection of fundamental social pressures. The media never showing black people in a positive light and always showing white people as the good guy.
It is outright unacceptable to me that this can happen. That a child does not like it's self because they are not white. There are no versions of the experiment in the last decade that I could find, so I'm hoping things have changed for the better as in regard to the self perception of…

IT'S HARD TO PISS ME COMPLETELY OFF BUT THAT MYKA PERSON DID

Image
Myka Stauffer is a name you may have heard this last while. See she and her hubby adopted a disabled child from China. They even went out of their way to crowd fund the adoption. There was all kinds of talk that they where wanting a disadvantaged child to give it a loving home. Turns out they just wanted to be popular on YouTube and suck some money out of Google while they where doing it. The move drove up subscribers by a factor of 7. This turned into a great deal of views on their videos. As well, this is a person who is a nurse - so she should know what it's like to deal with the disabled. Recently the exploitative videos of the child and well, all their videos where removed. Google also took away a large amount of views from their account stats in response to allegations.
Turns out after a while of actually having to deal with a disabled child, they decided it was too much and tossed him away like trash. Yup they "returned" the child. There where many people asking abo…

TURNING ON ADMINISTRATOR ACCOUNT FOR WINDOWS 10

Image
Well it may become handy to activate the Administrator account on Windows 10 at some point in time. Being that the account is not on by default (even when it says your administrator, you're not). You have to turn it on at the command line level.
Turn on administrator account Right click windows logo and run PowerShell as administrator Type: net user administrator /active:yes
Turn off administrator account Right click windows logo and run PowerShell as administrator net user administrator /active:no

I WISH THEY WOULD FINALLY FIX ONEDRIVE

Image
Well this has been happening on 3 different phones (2 different brands) and 3 different versions of Android. So I think it's the freaking OneDrive app. Being this has been happening for YEARS, it makes me wonder about them. Not one other app does this - it just shows the photos. The photos are NOT corrupted as well. If you exit the app and load it again it may or may not work - but most times works the 2nd time. The other thing is, it will eventually just up and STOP working. You will delete files and they still show up - you will upload files and they don't show up. You have to go to settings then to OneDrive then to Storage and clear the app data. If you don't have OneDrive linked in your phones settings you will have to log in again and verify the login again. It's a living pain in the ass. However i'm not paying extra for some cloud service when I'm paying for Office subscription that gives me 1TB of cloud. I won't mention it should be 5TB, but whatever…

BROKEN WINDOWS UPDATE MADE ME RE-INSTALL WINDOWS 10

Image
Well that freaking worked. Well there was an update that KILLED the update feature in Windows 10 recently (5/12/2020). You may want to go to settings then updates and check updates. If it tosses you some freaking error it's had the bun basically.
So I tried it all. I enabled the administrator account then tried to update from it - NOPE. I tried to use PowerShell to rebuild the Image - NOPE. I tried the registry patch from Microsoft - NOPE. I cleaned up the files with the drive cleaner including the update files - NOPE.
What I had to do is download the media tool and run it then say "update now" then do what it says basically. Took FOREVER as I don't have an SSD - I've got a slow HDD. Then after that I had to update and I noticed it DID NOT install the broken one - in fact I think it's been removed from the list.
This leaves you with a shit pile of old files you literally CAN'T remove by just deleting the "windows.old" folder. You have to pull up pr…

I USED TO REALLY LIKE SAMSUNG BUT FFS ENOUGH

Image
One and only one of these shows up literally every single freaking day on my phone. It is some crap security thing on Android 10 on my Samsung A50. Like ya know. I said YES to it having access to my location. What the literal shit is this about? Fuck off. And with all the apps that use my location, this should be going on until next winter FFS. That and FUCK OFF with advertising new devices to me on my fucking phone. JESUS on a pogo-stick.
