What it's like working for a Giant Megacorporation (TM):

(10:13:09 AM) NH: You know that Far Side where there's a repairman at an office, and he's opened the air vent or some such, and he's saying, "Well, there's your problem!" and the air vent is full of cows or some such?
(10:13:24 AM) NW: LOL, yeah...
(10:13:36 AM) NH: And it's ludicrous because:
(a) The air vent is full of cows, and
(b) how could the other workers NOT notice the cows?
(10:13:49 AM) NH: I am beginning to believe that I am that repairman.
(10:13:50 AM) NW: Mmm-hmm
(10:13:53 AM) NW: Hahahaha!
(10:14:24 AM) NH: THREE separate testers said, "I performed the steps in this lab EXACTLY as-written and I couldn't get it to work."
My manager herself tested it twice.
(10:14:35 AM) NH: So she finally asked me to do the lab.
(10:14:57 AM) NW: *nodding*
(10:15:00 AM) NH: And it is physically impossible to do the steps as-written. It's not that they don't work. It's that they're just wrong. You CANNOT DO THEM!
(10:15:19 AM) NH: So through FOUR ROUNDS of testing, not a single person was able to realize they were doing the impossible.
(10:15:20 AM) NW: I’m laughing and crying at the same time for you
(10:15:45 AM) NH: It's like, "WTF, people?"
(10:16:05 AM) NH: Well. another feather in my cap for the day, so I'm going to do nothing and clean my darned house.
(10:17:01 AM) NW: Hehe... good for you!
(10:17:13 AM) NH: Anyway, housecleaning time!

The cows are a feature, not a bug.

So do you just throw a few hippies chiefing up in there, in hopes that the cows will follow them in.

Legacy of Fire tonight cancelled due to working stupid late.

Going to play video games instead. Probably make a Pokemon post. Also start another game I found that I want to post a playthrough of.


I'll see if life goes on.

After what happened in the Sierra Madre, I'm not so sure.

I am watching "Inside the Labyrinth" making of Labyrinth documentary. They don't make movies like this anymore. CGI is just not the same.

Especially given that that's the same vent where Ron keeps his secret bug-out bag.

I was on Reddit. AskReddit is all like "No unmarked Star Wars spoilers or it's a banning". Some people got butthurt about their frozen peaches. One popped off about how stupid it was that JJ Abrams sacrificed good storytelling at the altar of politically correct diversity. I'm looking all this all like really? It's Star Wars. Remember the Original Trilogy? The princess knew how to use a blaster and lead a rebellion, and and the ruler of Cloud City was a black man who went on to blow up a death star. Then we have the prequels. The head of the Naboo Guard is a pretty competant black man, and the Queen and at least one handmaiden are quite capable in combat. I seem to remember at least one female starfighter pilot, too. The former Queen did some pretty impressive stuff in the second movie, too. During the Clone Wars, plenty of Jedi were female, and the most awesome Jedi of the entire series was Samuel L. Jackson.

So why the devil are people acting like a young scavenger woman and a black stormtrooper are at all unusual choices for major Star Wars characters?

They're just pissed off that women get all the good roles.

Why should Scarlett Johansson get to make out with Captain America (I assume) and not them.

Sometimes, life just isn't fair Reddit, best just move on.

People aren't. There were a handful of trolls who started all this a while back; not because they were sexist or racist but because trolls enjoy making other people angry. The fact that the argument is still around even today is a sad commentary on the willingness of we the people to feed trolls.

I recall the day I learned a new friend of mine was a troll. I have a friend who went to bible college (because her parents were hoping to make her into some kind of holy person?) while I went to a local community college (because my parents are cheap?). One day she was waiting for me in the cafeteria at my school and a new friend I recently met noticed her and decided to torment her before I showed up. So when I walk up she looks like she either wants to explode or cry. While he had a gleeful expression, like the cat that ate the canary. So I ask what was going on and he starts in on me with the same trolling he was giving her. It was him twisting the meaning of bible verses into hideous untruths. Fortunately for me I had already had a crisis of faith and already asked the tough questions to my pastor and read for the answers myself in the bible. So I could correct every untruth he was trying to sell. After a bit I noticed the calmer I was when cutting apart his argument the more upset he seemed to get. Eventually he left frustrated. Aranna to the rescue!

Later I asked my boyfriend about him since he had known him longer. And he said to ignore his little attacks, that guy just gets off on causing other people to get angry. I had actually met a real life troll face to face.

Yea. Some people are just jerks. Myself included. I realized that about myself a long time ago and have been working on curbing that part of me since that point. But it is still there.

I must admit, the notion of rolling your body across mine to collect excess fat never crossed my mind.

15.5 working hours until vacation.

I resolved to try and get an early out today to try and save my SAN.

I get in to work to find that the scheduling system we use to request such things is completely down. Not only is there no backup, I no longer know when my breaks or lunches are.

Well played, universe. But you're still a dick.

Free speech = freeze peaches (used for mocking people crying about the existance of forum rules they must follow) = frozen peaches.

A difficult time to be sure, but she isn't a teenager yet. She will be next spring.

I'd thought it was 13, thank god! I'm not prepared.

Thank you for the confirmation. :-)

Favorite quote from an experienced parent:
"Be happy you have two boys. Yeah, they're a nightmare until they're 7 or 8. But then you get to be the parent of teenage boys, and you get to watch those poor sots who were lucky enough to have little girls become the parents of teenage girls. You will get your revenge. In spades."

Heheh,...

A coworker at my old job had a daughter exactly one month after my wife and I had our little girl. The next day he came in to work with a very Bunny-In-The-Headlights look on his face. I asked him what was wrong.
He replied "It's a girl."

I answered, (Jokingly) "Yes, it's a girl. They smell better than boys."

He explained, "No, you don't understand. It's. A. Girl."

"I have 16 years to KNOW WHAT'S COMING!"

Apparently my coworker had much more interesting teen years than I had,...
;P
