I want to open an Air & Space Museum. It would be really cheap to do. It's just an empty building.

I guess I'm clothed in air & space.

I really hope you meant "bowl of sweets".

Take it from a guy who knows, turning your enemies and your prisoners into building material is both efficient and hilarious. Just wait until those plumbers find out what's been in those bricks this whole time!

Look, it's a constant pain in my shell that those guys keep smashing up perfectly good masonry. Let me have this bit of emotional karma.

Subbing for the Spanish teacher:

"Ms. Scint, I need your help."
"...Okay, but I know very little Spanish, so-"
"That's okay! There's just a lot of definitions for this one in the dictionary, and you know English."
"...[child]."
"Yes?"
"We are having this conversation in English."

I mean, I know what they meant. But still.

I've finally come to realize why I hate Slack so much: It's Facebook for corporations.

In a nutshell, it's a chat program. But it's a chat program that lets you send images and attachments and set up chat groups. Big deal.

Pidgin is running on my computer taking 13 MB, 0% CPU, and 0% GPU.
Slack is running on my computer taking 850 MB, 1% CPU, and 1% GPU.

Why on Earth do I need 850 MB to run a CHAT program?!?!?!?

Grr.....


Hi, everyone!


Hello

Gods, sometimes just walking down the street reminds me of how happy I am not to have to interact with people.

I'm really not dressed particularly strangely today: White tennis shoes, Pacific Rim chefwear, black T-shirt, and black corporate vest. But as I passed the BART station an older woman started staring at me, so I smiled and nodded, and she scowled and said, "I can't tell whether that's a man or a woman!"
Then as I walked by she said again, "Seriously, I can't!"

She was obviously trying to get a rise out of me, and I thought it was just depressing: How can you go through life being so bitter and hostile towards your fellow humans? What would she have done if I'd taken offense and attacked her?

It was just a mindless, angry, unkind, stupid thing for her to do. And as I said, I was far sadder than madder at her behavior: What must it be like to live in such a bitter world?

They don't even work with us.

I suspect the two Tyler's are hunting them for sport in the cornfields around the shop.

I'm not sure how sporting it is, with the corn not even planted yet, but I'm not going to judge.

Probably boxed you into whatever group she was wanting to put down that day, validated her stereotypes, and gotten to be the martyr every American seems to dream of being anymore.

about time travel in the MCU. It's fine. Everyone in the room had seen it or doesn't care.

Something similar happened to my neighbor and I the other day when we were walking together, some guy started questioning my neighbors gender loudly and rudely as well as then adding slurs, at first I figured he must just seem like he was talking to my neighbor but was really talking to me because I actually am transgender but then he acknowledged me as well by catcalling me.

Once he was well behind us my neighbor exploded with a "What the hell was that?" Rant.

For me it was super bizarre and wrong but on so many levels I couldn't really even begin to suss it out.

We settled on the realization that apparently if you are slightly androgynous like my neighbor a**@%~~s give you flak for being transgender but if you are transgender but pass as female really well you're just another women on the street to be harassed.

Glad we figured that out, now if you'll excuse me I'm off to build my super weapon to cleanse the filth that is humanity off the face of the earth. =p

Yeah the general consensus is that I should have clocked her to make her fearful of spreading such hate to those less thick-skinned than I.

But, "Yes, officer, I know I have 80 pounds and 20 years on her and 8 years of martial arts training, but I honestly thought she was a threat," doesn't seem like it would fly...

EDIT: Though I did find it charming that GothBard tried to reassure me that I don't come across as feminine. I've been an iconoclast for nearly 40 years. Attacking me over my appearance is pretty much the last possible way you'll get a rise out of me.

Well, my whole issue with the entire Infinity War thread is that Thanos clearly failed basic mathematics and biology.

"I kill half the population of the universe!"
"OK. It's been 20 years. The universe is repopulated. Nice job, moron!"

Thanos is an idiot. I just cannot overcome that, so I haven't watched any of the movies.

He's called the Mad Titan for a reason. He's the bad guy. Having a flawed but understandable motivation is good. (Way better than being after a goth girlfriend.)

Oh, not arguing. I'm in the camp that IW could've been fixed by simply making Thanos irredeemable and drawing on his comic counterpart's romance with Lady Death - kill half the populace as a courtship offering. Then it's just ridiculously over the top, as a comic villain should be.

pause, look of utter shock "...you know what, sir, neither can I. Please help me. I haven't been able to use the bathroom for weeks." And slowly walk toward her.

I dunno, I've mused several times that the original comic motivation for him might have caused less confusion or needs for extensive explanation.

Thanos is an idiot. I just cannot overcome that, so I haven't watched any of the movies.

Astronomy, chemistry, physics, and astrophysics too. Each solar system contains one or more sources of power and supply of minerals to sustain civilizations multiple orders of magnitude greater than the current Terran one. You only need a cheap space travel (and well developed administrative/logistics systems) to harness those resources to sustain millions of super-civilizations in each moderately sized galaxy. Thanos could solve his pet peeve problem even before he got a single infinity stone, so yeah, he's an idiot.

Though the movies are entertaining.
