Welcome to /roulette/!

Welcome to /roulette/, leftypol's roulette board!

This board will be used for testing out new board ideas. The guidelines are as follows:

- The countdown will begin as soon as the board is added to the announcement bar and will last for one month.
- After a month, if the board has garnered enough posts on that month's topic, it will be made into a new board (barring any legitimate objections by the moderation team) and the threads will be moved there. Off-topic and spam posts will not count. Board ideas that do not meet this requirement will be shelved, with the possibility of being revisited later.
- New board ideas can be suggested in the /meta/ thread for /roulette/.

This month's board topic is: /lounge/ - Socialization.

- /lounge/ is a board meant for more overt social threads, be it anonymous conversations or relating your lives to other anons. More generally it could be called a board of socialization for its own sake, whereas more overtly political threads go to /leftypol/, hobby-discussion related topics can go on their respective alt-board, and general shitposting or otherwise off-topic material goes to /siberia/.
- On /lounge/ there is an expectation for generally polite conduct meant to promote a comfy atmosphere, thus the usual antics of trolling and any kind of off-topic shitposting is banned.
- While /lounge/ does allow for some IRL-related conversations, explicitly doxxing yourself or others is against the rules and will result in banning. Don't share anything you wouldn't want an insane /pol/ stalker to know.
- /lounge/ has a policy of being SFW-friendly, so relegate any NSFW content over to /siberia/.
- Any measure of shitposting in a thread which does not violate the above rules will be tolerated, however threads cannot be in and of themselves shitposts.

>Withania somnifera, known commonly as ashwagandha, Indian ginseng, poison gooseberry, or winter cherry, is an annual evergreen shrub in the Solanaceae or nightshade family that grows in India, the Middle East, and parts of Africa. Several other species in the genus Withania are morphologically similar. Although thought to be useful as a medicinal herb in Ayurveda and sold in many countries as a dietary supplement, there is insufficient scientific evidence that it is safe or effective for treating any disease.

Anyone else try this? I've been taking it and it really helps overall health + coritsol levels. It saved my life and even though it hasn't been scientifically confirmed I still recommend taking this 100%. It even boosts test levels for guyts

Job Interview Madness

TLDR I just cheated on a job interview and I hope they don't find out.

It's unemployed-anon back again with another story. I got a callback from a job, an IT job. They told me to sign up for a phone screen interview using a web app, but the only timeslot it had available this week was at 4:30am my time, since i'm in a very different timezone from this job. I've been staying up late shitposting on /leftypol/ till like 1-2am So I decided to stay up a little longer to do this, which was scheduled to be a 15 minute phone conversation, after which I would sleep. So I rewatched a bunch of old movies and shit for a few hours. Right on the dot at 430 I got the phone call. However the conversation lasted like an hour+, the normal bullshit HR questions, then they said they wanted to schedule another interview early tomorrow at a similar time, but then said:

>Just to let you know, this company requires a [leetcode type] assessment for all candidates. We need you to do this BEFORE the interview tomorrow, ideally right now.

For those of you who don't know for programming jobs they often require testing of algorithm-programming questions which are kindof hard for job interviews. There's a whole ecosystem built up around this shit similar to the SAT testing prep industry.

So I have a choice, either do it now, or wait until I get even sleepier, or go to sleep right now, do it later, and screw up my sleep cycle even more and be sluggish on the real interview the next day. So I choose to do the leetcode bullshit right now. So by this time its fucking 6am, I haven't slept all night, I'm out of coffee and the company drug tests so adderall/moda is out of the question. No sleep, brain fog in my already midwit-depleted brain which is burnt out from grad school, and now I have to think about DS/A bullshit. I tried noodling around with the problems for a while but one of them I couldn't make it work, I kept failing a few test cases, so I eventually got frustrated and copy-pasted a solution from some guy on the internet and didn't really bother to change any variable names or w/e. It was a perfect solution but obv. Now I'm scared it will show up as plagiarism and I won't get the job.

I fucking hate this interview process. TBH its partially my fault for not sleeping, but in my defense I didn't expect them to spring any sort of technical interview on me in a pre-first round interview phone screen like that, esp. with some non technical HR person. Honestly I feel like its lazily disrespectful of me to haze my ass with leetcode at 4am, so I don't really feel that bad about cheating.

Level with me bros, am I getting hired?

What is your type?

I've realized that I attract nerdy people and almost all of my relationships or crushes have been with gamers (even if I'm not specifically looking for one).

This kind of matches the idea I already had of "my type", nerds. But "gamers" isn't quite what I expected. And yet, that's who I end up with.
I also can't imagine myself with someone who is a big extrovert with a lot of friends and acquaintances or whose main interests have nothing to do with mine.

What do you think is your type? If you've had relationships, is it the same type you have "in practice"?

Memory Problems

Does anyone else have a terrible memory? I forgot a ton of shit from earlier in life including college/grad school, but even friends, faces. Am I just depressed or do I have a worse than average memory? I will probably get alzheimer's at 65 by this rate

Free time thread

I made this thread on /hobby/ time ago but seems better suited for this board and I think it'll be better if every one can use it
The purpose of this thread is to support each other and not let your soul crushing job crush you even more by making good use of your free time.
How do you guys use your free time?
What do you do to make the most out of it?
