  • Isn’t that right in the definition of the word? They co-operate to form a word.

    Cooperating means working together to accomplish a goal, sometimes by doing different tasks; not necessarily just doing the same thing and duplicating effort, as would be the case if they made the same sound.

    If anything, we should be casting shade at that lazy hyphen who ducked out early instead of sticking around to make the etymology clear.

    Communication is a 2-way street.

    Writing out an incoherent, unpunctuated paragraph is not only lazy on the writer’s part, it’s disrespectful in asking the reader to put in extra work to decipher what the actual hell they are talking about. Fortunately, it’s also a pretty good sign that there’s not a ton of value in whatever they wrote.

    Europeans literally see no irony in throwing shade at Americans for hanging onto their traditional measurement system, while also speaking 27 different languages in the span of a few hundred miles.

    Maybe come down off your high horse until you get that situation sorted, eh? >.>

    Edit: Oops, I thought it would be safe to make a joke a in a meme thread.







  • No Internet meant 1st person in line had a real chance to get front row seats Tickets were 30.00 maybe…I paid 40 to see van Halen with Alice in Chains open

    I get this probably wasn’t your main intent, but no internet also meant that if you didn’t live in a large-ish city with physical access to those tickets, you either took hours/days out of your life or were just SOL.

    Internet ticket sales aren’t really the problem, it’s automated and sanctioned/coordinated scalping for resale. (To be fair, that is largely enabled by internet sales…) There’s certainly no technical reason all tickets to a popular show couldn’t be sold at the same price and/or to those who had virtually queued up. It’s just those aspects that make a better fan experience are generally directly opposed to making the most money.
