Biden is just one in a line of status quo. How has anyone's life gotten better in the last 10 years? 20? 30? I'm only 36 so maybe going back 30 years is tough for me to say, but since I joined the workforce I've watched the rich get richer, and at the end of the day that is the battle that needs to be fought. If this is a turning point, maybe Dems put forward an actual progressive.

Ebaumsworld is where 14- to 17-year-old me spent most of my time in those days. The forum was my introduction to internet message boards. Will always have a spot spot there.

Hopefully not a while, but that's a story for another day.

They have the chatbots reading emails, in her words, to make them (the emails) more enthusiastic. I don't even ask questions, I'm very insulated from her field and corporate workplaces in general, and admittedly view a lot of what happens there as completely outrageous, but is probably just par for the course.

My wife works for a hospital system and they now interact with a chat bot. Somehow it's HIPAA compliant, I dunno. But I said to her, all it's doing is learning the functions of you and your coworkers, and it will eventually figure out how to streamline your position. So theres more to learn, but it's moved into private sectors too.

We get this butter substitute (green lid, can't remember the name, I'd make a terrible shill) and it is phenomenal and 100% replaced spread butter. Cooking, I still use the regular most of the time though.

Yeah. Is it board games or furry?

It's got both. It's awesome. But it's also owned by James Dolan, and he's a douche. I say that as a big Rangers fan.

Glad to find a like-minded individual here. I generally do either 33 for that half minute heat, 55 for when it doesn't quite need a minute, and 88, because after a buck thirty I should be stirring (if applicable).

We had an old microwave that had the button. It failed. I went and brought a new one home, and much to my wife's chagrin, as is in my nature, I failed to notice the lack of 30s button.

HFCS doesn't kill people, it's the cardiac diseases and cancers that do!

Back into every spot every time. That is something my wife has heard me say a billion times, and I've said it to many people. Back in to parking spots, it is always safer and easier to pull out forward. Backing in, you're already in the travelway, you and others are aware of one another's existence. I also think it's easier to maneuver into a space when your pivot enters last. Also helps you practice backing up, for situations where you may need it.

Granted, all of this came from driving ambulances, where the lesson was, no matter how steep and windy the driveway, backing in it with an empty box is always easier than backing out with a patient in the back.

I will concede there are exceptions, anyone can feel free to list them.

Furthermore, I've seen some municipalities institute back in angled spaces on roadways, and they are absolutely the best. Anytime a road has non-parallel parking spaces, they should be back-in spaces.

Qatar. We sell them to Qatar.

So I got fired for threatening to report them for withholding employee checks. They had a bunch of 15-19 year olds closing one night, maybe five or six of us, and one of the ice cream freezers got turned off. Someone's honest mistake, a bunch of ice cream melted, sucked, but they said okay, we're just going to withhold all your paychecks, and I said fuck no you're not, and proceeded to threaten reporting. In the end, me and my coworkers all got our $27 paychecks, but I lost my job. I am by no means a hero, was just a little belligerent as a kid, and it felt like a good opportunity to really dial in the belligerence.


A technical disaster, but sure, I'll keep coming back. Can't wait to reminisce about the days when it was a technical disaster, though.

Also, posted from my PC, because doing anything on Jerboa has proven impossible.


Love to see it, and I want to see more of it. Anyone who did this absolutely deserves what they have coming to them.
