Bugman thought: Amazon worship, efficiency, desire to be part of a facless whole



Learning about this sort of thing is interesting though. It doesn't really come across as bugmannish fanboyism in that Tweet.

That's not true at all, though, and pretty ridiculous if you think about it for a minute.  First off, humans are loading the trucks manually, not according to some AI's schematic.  Second, the whole thing would go awry after the first delivery creates spaces.  Finally, having received oversized boxes from Amazon, a lot of the time there isn't really anything in them keeping the individual product inside from sliding around.  It's just Amazon f**king up the box size.  This whole explanation came from some reddit thread where some guy was talking out of his surely gigantic ass.

One thing I've noticed is that Amazon is aggressively fudging its two day delivery window, presumably by shuffling product between warehouses and not counting it "shipped" until everything is at the closest fulfillment center (this is probably not noticeable if you live near a large fulfillment center).  Order deadlines are being set as early as 12:00 AM for items three days prior to the two day delivery target.  It must be awful working for such a company.  Imagine the performance metric interrogation employees get during reviews.

I'm relatively certain that Amazon's ridiculous metrics and work demands are because f****t Dr. Evil hates people and wants to "justify" replacing them all with robots as soon as it's commercially viable (while also getting better returns on his profit margins in the process) because their needs are too great for any human to handle.

A cousin of mine recently got a job at an Amazon warehouse and confirms all the worst stories about the company.

The weird thing is... He likes it. He's a complete goon/bugman hybrid though: min wage jobs his whole life, no girlfriend, obese, approaching 40, with a giant collection of Star Wars figurines.

I couldn't stand working in the conditions/environment he describes but he marvels at the efficiency at which they can deliver plastic crap to customers.

A large part of it seems to be tech worship and the company culture which encourages maximum, robotic efficiency with a smile, even as Amazon also tells employees to tattle on their coworkers for falling behind on their tasks. It's sort of like a bugman cult only it doesn't even promise an unearthly reward.

I live a few miles away from such a distribution center. I know people who work there. Awful hours at a fast-food wage, and constant threat of replacement by illegal border-jumpers. It's a terrible job, and Bugman Bezos is a terrible human being.

the thing about Bezos and co. running what are basically sweatshops that churn through workers is that this sort of business behavior produces more pathology (as well as socializing labor costs)...think of the negative behavior that is generated by working long hours in a high stress job for little pay...none of this happens in a vacuum, and it makes getting an Amazon fulfillment center a bad deal for communities in the long run

Adults acting like children or infants seems to produce the same subconscious, visceral disgust as fags or trannies. It's the reverse of sexualized children like Jon Benet Ramsey.

The oversize bottle triggers as well; it throws your visual perception off. Then there's the 128 fluid ounces of simple sugars she's consuming.

The bugmen began to emerge en masse from their cells, glancing at each other with confused apprehension. "The power will come back on. The Internet never goes down that long." Some of them were cheerfully optimistic, despite having waited nearly half the day. Others huddled together to comment on the last information they had absorbed. The memes now regurgitated provided no warmth, and the illogical way they were strung together elicited only panicked grins punctuated by the occasional shrieking laugh.  A few did not look up at all, but merely stared in frustration at the empty obsidian screens they held. Where was the nearest juice vendor? How would they pay for a sugar ampoule without network connectivity? Finally, one of them, the weariest of the lot, spoke earnestly: "I'm hungry," he declared, and coughed.

RedLetterMedia has walked a fine line since GamerGate and they are really ambiguous about their position. Take this as a parody of diversity checks that can pass without being associated with Skywalker.

This is as much as they can do. They know there's a market to their right, everyone in their sphere knows it at least since the Ghostbusters remake.

The on topic aspect is the very character they stumbled upon, and it weirds them out so much that they created a parody series. Someone should send them a link to this topic.

One of the more amusing groups of people on reddit, who provide some useful insights into the bugman mentality, are the "foodies". Many of reddit's most popular subs (this was moreso the case in the past though, as politics has come to the forefront in the Drumpf era) are food themed. Some are generically themed - /r/food, /r/cooking, /r/recipes - and some more specifically themed - /r/burgers, /r/grilledcheese, /r/bacon. Others focus on diets - /r/eatcheapandhealthy, /r/vegan, /r/1200isplenty - and still others are centered on corporations - /r/tacobell, /r/chipotle, /r/mcdonalds. Whatever the case, these places are concentrated reddit retardation.

The most popular post in the last year on /r/grilledcheese, under the title "Had to correct my husband" (and with 13k upvotes), provides a useful example:
Posted Image
This subreddit is all about praising the wonders of grilled cheese, in its simplest, most pure form. And it is full of images of just that - pictures of grilled cheese. But one thing gets them worked up, and that is the inclusion of impurities. Say, adding bacon. So there's a lot of discussions and posts arguing about what the "true" definition of grilled cheese is. Lots of people get worked up over it. "Ironically", of course. This is all meant to be ironic, but you quickly realize that on reddit irony is a mask for retardation. At some point (the minute you start doing it), spending time upvoting pictures of grilled cheese and getting into flame wars over what a grilled cheese becomes an actual obsession.

One of the top yearly posts on /r/burgers demonstrating a few other common themes, entitled "Five Guys in my mouth":
Posted Image
The title is doubly illustrative, in the sense that it features both a pun (redditors are notorious for loving puns...ironically of course) and the connection between sex and food. Sexual innuendo is commonly used on these subreddits. Redditors want to "motorboat" that yummy pizza or stuff that "thick" sausage down their throats, and a photo of finished food is commonly referred to as the "money shot" (these are all actual examples). This sort of language is everywhere. But this post also gets at another key aspect of food subreddits - brand identity. Labels matter, and can be the difference between hundreds of upvotes and an ignored post. Redditors crave upvotes, and so they utilize popular brands to their advantage. Five Guys, being a bugman favorite (they love overly greasy food...again, """ironically"""), is a good choice.

But users don't identify with these brands cynically. Many of them are true believers, and this can be seen on some of the corporate (ostensibly, these places aren't run by corporations but they always support whatever corporation they borrow their title from - and the bugmen of places like /r/microsoft and /r/apple deserve their own effort post) subreddits. I find /r/tacobell to have the most sycophantic and dedicated supporters. One of 2017's top posts, entitled "R/ blackpeopletwitter keeping it real":
Posted Image
Now once again the title itself is indicative of a broader reddit trend - adulation of "black people twitter". The "black" part of social media (a weirdly racialized term that has already been criticized by academics) is considered by redditors to be hilarious (we are laughing with them not at them, the redditor guiltily insists), full of real talk, and woke as heck. Here, we see some random guy praising Taco Bell on his Facebook - and in turn, being praised by Taco Bell's greatest supporters. His ramblings (pretty typical fare for any Facebook feed) are reimagined as wisdom - "these words have changed my life...That's my Roy" a top post in the thread reads. Notice once again, we have the pun, and the """ironic""" over-the-top praise.

But if these reddit foodies can praise, they can also condemn. Here we see one of the top posts from the last year on /r/steak, titled "President Trump orders his steak well done with ketchup":
Posted Image
As you can imagine, the people at /r/steak take their steaks as seriously (totally "ironically" though...) as the denizens of /r/grilledcheese take their grilled cheese. Some pearls of wisdom from that thread: "Trump may be rich, but he's still just trailer-trash" (255 upvotes - hating white proles is a great way to get yourself some reddit karma), "Trump is a poor man's idea of a rich man and a dumb man's idea of a smart man" (258 upvotes - insipid s**t like this, along the same line as the "temporarily embarrassed millionaires" trope, serves as a sort of redditor folk "wisdom"), and "As a conservative, I never bought the idea that he was a good pick for a presidential nominee, and I voted third party. I am vindicated by this news. :)" (147 upvotes - you'll see these types of "as a conservative i hate DRUMPF" posts all the time, redditors love this stuff). Although these subreddits are apolitical on the surface, they seem to have become more and more politically charged. Shitlibs are so frazzled by the Trump phenomenon that even when they are "ironically" praising their cheese sandwiches and taco bell slop they can't help but throw in some quip about Bannon being ugly or whatever (he is ugly, but that's beside the point). It's truly bizarre.

And I think to end this post it is worth interrogating their own political views, with the post that inspired me to write this autistic summary up, titled "Jack in the Box CEO says 'it just makes sense' to consider replacing cashiers with machines as minimum wages rise". It links to a Business Insider article, which reports that:

Quote

"As we see the rising costs of labor, it just makes sense" to consider adding new automated technology, CEO Leonard Comma said Tuesday at the ICR Conference.

Jack in the Box previously tested technology such as kiosks. According to Comma, the kiosks resulted in a higher average check and helped with efficiency. But at the time Comma said the cost of installing the kiosks wasn't worth it.

But with minimum wages increasing, Jack in the Box is reconsidering the use of kiosks and other technology, Comma said.
Leaving aside my own personal thoughts on the issue (I think it is absurd to blame automation on increasing wages, and that corporations are using this as a convenient excuse), I found that the reddit foodie take was particularly interesting. The top three upvoted posts from their /r/fastfood thread on the article:

Quote

I really am not looking for social interactions when getting fast food so I'm all for automated ordering... (81 points)

Quote

[In response to the above] Also less chance your order is rung up wrong. (41 points)

Quote

Self check-out is the best thing to happen to markets. Less talking and I can do it quicker. (31 points)

Here we see the true face of the reddit foodie - the bugman - revealed. I mean, it is quite obvious that these people are bugmen. They humble brag about the craft beers they are drinking by very conspicuously including them in their food pictures, they shower praise on "cool" corporations whose branding has been specifically designed to dupe them, and they are autistically obsessed over things like the correct steak temperature and the makeup of sandwiches (a painfully inauthentic attempt at authenticity). But all of these are surface level bugman traits. What makes the bugman so insidious, so repulsive, is his underlying character. And in this last thread on automation we see that revealed.

The bugman does not understand, much less appreciate, social interaction. The bugman finds humans to be inefficient, but machines will never get his order wrong. The bugman considers what is best for the markets, without regard for his own community (to be fair, he doesn't have one). Underneath his carefully groomed beard, expensive clothes, and layer of fat grown on IPA's and homemade "'zas", the bugman is a broken person. Lacking - due to his complete immersion in, and submission to, the neoliberal system - the basic capacity to appreciate anything that does not have a market value. They are the perfect consumer, nothing more, nothing less.

Or rather, nothing else.

This is by and large a good post but I too was thrilled about the concept of automated ordering when I lived in America, largely because people from the continent of dick washers were responsible for taking my order.

Out in slavland I have not shared a language with a server in years and in all that time I have never received a single bad order when I am giving it to someone that looks like they could only be employed in the modeling industry back home. In America every time I'd go to McDonalds I'd have to walk Tyrone through using the cash register as best I could. If you enjoy interacting with naggers, ordering kiosks might not sound great to you but I just want my f**king hash browns and a piece of sausage and cheese a la carte without explaining to an urban youf what "a la carte" means and the buttons he needs to press to ring up the order that way and then explain AGAIN what the strange order means to the sheneequa manager and the kitchen staff seriously I just don't ever want to do that again to get delicious breakfast and I DO NOT CARE that McDonalds is a wicked arm of ZOG those hash browns are hella tasty and I wanna use them in lieu of a mcmuffin on the sausage and cheese u feel me dawg?

One aspect of the bugman I have long noticed is that they are indeed the consumer drones they posit other less enlightened people to be. The bugmen consider themselves immune to marketing because they scoff at advertising and campaigns not aimed at them, at their demographics - and think highly of themselves for doing so, citing their 'bullshit detectors' or whichever - but will fall for companies that manage to turn their financial success or failure into a revolutionary doctrine, as seen with various outfits over the years with different levels of success - back in the days outfits like Napster, Netscape and Adobe and et cetera et cetera, yadda yadda yadda did it and Apple is the emperor of this. I've seen plenty of people in the past couple of decades who in retrospect fit the bugman archetype pick their pet corporation and cheer it on in the market wars, as though it truly mattered to them one bit.
