RAMPAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Better?


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Yes.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

If work wasn't kicking my (expletive deleted) I would probably be able to put together a rant about (expletive deleted) work.

No this will not count.

I was at my father's funeral in Wyoming. Buried him without a rank. Something about cemeteries that takes the ranting out of me.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

My condolences.

My thoughts and prayers go out to you BP in this trying time.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Thank everyone. I honestly can't tell you how bumpy the last 11 months have been. Finally, a light at the end of the tunnel.

And Gen Con!


I was seeing an awesome metal festival 3 miles from home and mother nature decided to whip a 70 mph storm that took down trees, siding, roofs, power lines, etc. It completely harshed my Jager & Angry Orchard buzz. It ceased the show abruptly at 5:30 pm ET that should've ended at midnight.

And there's tomorrow still yet to go.

Not cool at all. You whore, mother nature.


I've laid quite a few rants down the past couple of days in other threads.

I could link them if you like...

Wasn't me.

takes power poll and scratched back with it.

Andoran

My condolences, Blue Pigeon.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Air conditioning is awesome. It totally sucks not having it with 100 degree weather.


A rant about brown outs, rainy weather, an no ac, Hmmmmmm?


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

So I have the day off of work tomorrow so I am going to try and put together a rant to post.


I have a secret. Don't tell anyone.

I believe in Independence Day.

Don't tell anyone.

Happy Forth of July.


Your secret is safe.

Unless of course there's a better offer to be made.

Welcome back Rant fans! This rant is about work. As previously stated “Work (expletive deleted) sucks.” But why does work (expletive deleted) suck? Well if you’d hold on a second I’d (expletive deleted) tell you why it sucks. Work sucks because we often have to do it so much for absolutely no (expletive deleted) gain. I have like a million things to do at my house right now. The least of which is do like gaming stuff. Why can’t I seem to get any of it done? Because I have to (expletive deleted) work all the time. Now my job isn’t all that physically strenuous but that doesn’t mean that I’m not tired when I get home. I mean you would be too if you had to listen to people (expletive deleted) about their (expletive deleted) lives all day long. Which brings me to another point, a big reason why I hate work is because while I’m out there trying to be a “productive member of society”, my (expletive deleted) tax dollars are going to people who are making it their “job” to exploit the system. Obviously this isn’t everybody, nor is this the rant to discuss that, but it still (expletive deleted) me off. Back on topic! Another reason work sucks is you have to do stuff. Usually stuff you don’t really want to do like “Be nice to customers” or “clean the bathroom” or “fix someone else’s (expletive deleted)”. But yet we are compelled to work. Why? Because of the almighty (expletive deleted) dollar. What makes it even worse is the fact that even if you have a job and you work most of the day you can still come out losing. Where is the (expletive deleted) justice in that? There are 168 hours in a week, minus 40 hours for “work”, minus another 5 for “lunch”, minus 56 for sleep if you happen to sleep 8 hours a night, and minus another 10 or so for travel and what are you left with 57 hours to spend. That seems like a lot of time but it’s really only more than two days that you get to do what you want. That’s only 28.5% of the week which means over 70% of your time is devoted to “work” or recovering from “work”. (Expletive deleted) that man. All of that just so that you cannot afford to do anything you want and barely afford to eat something more than (expletive deleted) Ramen noodles. And the worst part of the whole thing is that in most of your so-called “jobs” it doesn’t matter what you do because you get to do it all again the next day and there is no end to the amount of (expletive deleted) you have to do. (Expletive deleted)! This rant is done, I’m tired of ranting about (expletive deleted) work.

Tune in next time when I will be ranting about Bosses. Man, that’s almost as bad as (expletive deleted) work.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Man that was a long one.

Updated list of topics I'm going to rant about:

Bosses
Those annoying automated telephone menu things (you know, press 1 for blah, press 2 for blech, etc...)
Customers who bug me while I'm trying to do something important, like browse the Paizo message boards
People who talk in netspeak (LOL, OMG, ROTFLMAO, etc...)
Telemarketers.
Those jackanape "debt collectors" that mistake you for some one else - as if you have any more money that the guy who shirked on the "debt" the jackanapes are now determined that YOU owe them for.
Spam that the e-mail filters fail to catch. Or spam that cleverly dodges the nets during its annual spawning runs up long Alaskan rivers. Or both.
Why Gruumash is so Awesome?
Purple People Eaters
Pushy Monkey Kings
Canadians
Ginger Gnomes
Hot Weather
Power Outages

Man I know that feeling. Endless [expletive deleted] cycle.


I like going to work. It's fun.

Andoran

Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I like going to work when there is work to be done.

Shadow Lodge

I don't hate my job. But I'd certainly rather have one that felt more like I was getting stuff done rather than "finish this batch just in time for the next batch to come in".

I'd love to get into writing, but I'll actually have to finish a project first...


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Yeah, writing would be cool to have as a job. I know I'm a terrible writer. I either don't add enough of an explanation or too much of one. No happy medium for me. Hell I've been working on a project for a Modern Fantasy RPG for the past 5 years now.


Ahh, delicious rant venom. How I have missed thee.

Shadow Lodge

I'm working on a few things with other people. Two comic ideas with me as writer and the other person as artist, and one cooperative story project with another writer, plus a handful of things I'm doing on my own.

It's just a matter of managing to finish one of them and get it edited, cleaned up, and in suitable condition to submit to someone who can sell the thing. Add in a nature to procrastinate and the typical writer's inability to be satisfied with their own work and you have a recipe for disaster.

Thankfully I'm okay with a low standard of living; as long as I have a roof, a bed, plumbing, food, and an internet connection I'm happy. No family to support nor significant other to impress.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Fortunately for me, I'm employed. But that does mean it is taking longer to get this project off the ground. Truth be told, the whole thing is just a conglomeration of random ideas. But I'm hoping to one day get it into something bigger.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Well to make up for the lack of rants, I'm going to try to do one tomorrow. No promises.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Oh right, I'm supposed to be working on a rant.


That you are sir.

In this rendition of JMD031’s infamous rants, I will rant about Bosses. The most evil, vile, (expletive deleted) people in the known world. Bosses are terrible because they force you to work. As I ranted about earlier Work (expletive deleted) sucks. But it goes beyond that. Bosses are all these things because they forget what it’s like to (expletive deleted) be the person in your shoes. How often have you been given the work of three people because some (expletive deleted) boss thought it would be a good cost cutting measure to load up one person’s workload to the point of where they feel overwhelmed and like they will never be able to (expletive deleted) get ahead. On top of that, most “Bosses” have no idea how to manage. Most “Bosses” are (expletive deleted) jerks who abuse their “so-called” power to make you feel like a loser. Well, (expletive deleted) that (expletive deleted)! I have problems enough with how I feel about myself, I don’t need some incompetent (expletive deleted) (expletive deleted) making feel like I don’t know what the (expletive deleted) I’m doing when I’ve been doing the same (expletive deleted) thing for what seems like (expletive deleted) forever now. Seriously, these (expletive deleted) individuals are often too far removed from where everything is happening that they have no (expletive deleted) idea how it all happens and often times “guess”. What bothers me know is my current job. Have you guys seen Office Space where the main character guy has like 4 (expletive deleted) bosses? Yeah, that’s me right now, I feel like that guy and I can tell you what I want to do with their (expletive deleted) cover sheet for the (expletive deleted) TPS reports. Personally I’m glad there isn’t a boss like that Bill Lumberg dude. I swear if I had that guy for a boss, I would (expletive deleted) on his (expletive deleted) and then take I would (expletive deleted) in his coffee and follow all that up by (expletive deleted) his (expletive deleted) (expletive deleted). Seriously, that guy was a (expletive deleted) jerk. Anyways, this rant is over like [SPOILER ALERT!] the TV show Lost.

Tune in next time when I rant about…Those annoying automated telephone menu things. Dear lord do I hate those (expletive deleted) things.

Update to the update.


Great rant, JMD031. Funny, since suggesting the boss topic I left my old job and started a new one where my boss is light-years better than my old one. Still not a perfect boss, but much much better.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Today was pretty irritating. I may be able to get another rant out here in the next couple of days as I have built a good reserve of rant fuel.

It's time to rant about parasites. Those no-good [expletive deleted] [expletive deleted] steal your energy and sometimes kill you just to fuel their own [expletive deleted] lives. They're [expletive deleted] freeloaders! They think it's okay to just burrow into your feet or hide in your food and drink our blood! That's [expletive deleted]! Parasites are also known for being DEVOLVED. That means that they [expletive deleted] sacrificed their actual survival abilities to adapt to living off our efforts. And unlike the nice bacteria that help us digest food and such, these [expletive deleted] make us sick. They're disgusting and they serve no purpose except to inhibit progress. If we had no disease, who knows how far the human race would have gotten? But no, we have to spend tens thousands of years just to develop basic food purification. Actually, if we had magic, we wouldn't even have to bother with that. Just purify food and drink and everyone takes a level of cleric or whatever and we're good. Although then we would have to kill things and stuff to get to that level. Which might be bad. Then again overpopulation is a problem too and killing people is more humane than letting them die of cholera? Maybe that's why we've been starting so many [expletive deleted] wars. [expletive deleted] Illuminati [expletive deleted]. Anyway murder is bad but war is okay and if you see an alien that may have human intelligence it's okay to [expletive deleted] murder their [expletive deleted]. I probably feel really [expletive deleted] strongly about this [expletive deleted]. Maybe I'm getting too angry. [expletive deleted] it, I'm not going to hide my philosophies. Wait that probably sounds pretty hubristic. God [expletive deleted] [expletive deleted]. What the [expletive deleted] ever. This rant is getting pretty derailed. They always do when you start getting introspective. Anyway parasites are [expletive deleted] and even if their sort of self-centered existence was predicated on the same theories as what caused human evolution they're still dumb and stupid. Even if some of them are important for stopping allergies and stuff, I still hate them. [expletive deleted] parasites are [expletive deleted] dishonourable pig-dogs. [expletive deleted] them.

While I like working, I hate bosses.

And parasites?

I am now the proud owner of the 20,000th post in the <Ask James Jacobs all your questions> thread.


In celebration, you should rant about Treerazor.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Nah, that guy sucks. He tried to cut me down, but I was too awesome for that.


I had an idea a while ago to start a thread titled "gran rey de los mono's interesting sh!t thread" and for the first post simply type " I just took one." However I was concerned this may lead to a difference of opinion with the PMG or other member of the Paizo staff, so I didn't do it. However, I can't get the idea out of my mind, so I decided to post this here. Hope you enjoyed this break from the ranting. You may now go about your day.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Today was a crazy day to end a crazy week. I'm not even sure where to begin, nor if I'm even allowed to discuss some of it. It was that crazy.

Andoran

That sounds hilarious, Monkey King. You should do it anyways.


Maybe later.


Maybe later.

Andoran

Ah yeah wait for when they least expect it huh?
