andygruba:Bro I could make so much lemonade if I wanted it's unreal


Now that you mention it, I think maybe I'm contractually obligated to make lemonade ??


edit: this is from like 6 years ago lol but here's a pic to give u a good idea of the amount of lemonage we're working with here:

All these bags are to give away to friends/neighbors etc.


Those look wonderful!

Would you believe me if I said that I like lemonade so much that I drink it for breakfast instead of orange juice?

Is is feasible to get enough lemons to make lemonade from scratch?

mitchellbravo:That show had a big influence on me. I hope the reboot is good, it feels like it fit so perfectly well in jts time and it's hard to imagine that tone still working today :/

People always pointed to South Park as being able to "make fun of everybody" but I feel like koth actually succeeded at doing so in a way that didn't feel mean spirited


I never saw South Park since I never had tv service beyond Basic Cable.

But I loved the gentle satire of King of the Hill. My father and paternal grandparents grew up in Texas, but I never lived there. I must have Texas culture in my DNA because I got the show from the beginning.


I have faith that Mike Judge can pull it off.

I heard that King of the Hill is being rebooted.

Watching for free may be a challenge, since I have no tv service.

I was fortunate to experience a gentle and generous termination once, myself.

I kinda knew it was coming. A co-worker who was also a good friend hinted darkly to me one day at lunch when I had to rant about some of our squirrel-y co-workers.

The company was a hot-shot software company which was thriving after the tech-bubble burst of 2000(?). The company did two huge layoffs. The root cause was that some marketing people got carried away with the current success and convinced the CEO we were going to be the next Google (Number of employees there maxed out at 124).

First layoff was about 40 people. I was still standing.

Two months later the second layoff swept me off board. One thing that made it a bittersweet experience was that the CEO came around and apologized to everyone. When he came to me, I told him I understood, that I had enjoyed my job (without mentioning the squirrel-y coworkers, of course), and that I hoped there would be a turnaround and I could rejoin the company.

That just broke him. His lip was trembling and he said thanks and turned away. To this day I treasure the boss who had the heart to face those of us he had to let go.

WynautWarrior:You know that feeling when you make some art that you are super proud of, that you pour your heart and soul into, only for no one to give a damn. Yeah, that just happened. I just want to give up non-comic related stuff if that's how shitty my art is.


My cardboard sign basically reads: Will draw for brief admiration


Since my production is only about three pieces annually, I can't help but wonder how far I could go if I were passionate. My behavior says that I would rather read comics than draw them.

I say if you are drawing three pieces per week or more, I bow to your dedication.

GMan003: ....or to just write the whole thing off as a relatively sane response to the absolutely fucked state of the world these days.
.


I'm putting my chips on this one. ^

In my case when I hit the level I think you're talking about, my emotions shut off, my brain goes quiet, but my guts cramp until I'm at the cusp of barfing.

This was how it was for me from late last week until the day before yesterday.

Shekets:Fuck Microsoft


This is my professional advice as a tech, fuck Microsoft.
Also fuck ARGos, which is an operating system that a bunch of slot machines use. It's a combination of Windows and Linux (WHY?!)


When Windows 7 became the last MS OS my old desktop would support, I decided to go with new hardware and Linux Mint.

At work I must contend with Windows 10, and the four-score apps-bundled-into-one nightmare known as TEAMS.

A combo of Windows & Linux? Facepalm

Back in the 1990's there was an attempt to do that for home users called (wait for it) Lindows. Never caught on wonder why.

I've been getting a combination of intense gut pain and back pain. I know it's from the insane stress at my job right now.

But then I was worried that it might be other things causing it like maybe the mattress died prematurely, or the onset of appendicitis; something that would be expensive to fix.

Last night I said feck it, I'll be a wimp and take some Tylenol.

Well dang it, it worked. I didn't think it would because you don't take Tylenol for stomach pain.

But the work stress keeps happening, and I don't have control over that.

I hope the medical folk can get him stabilized and comfortable.

And best wishes that he can experience some hope.

-3-:Sadly, they are not predicting a consequential drop-off in stupidity nor ignorance among the Pro-Diseasers.
(If Anti-Abortionists call themselves Pro-Life, then shouldn't the Anti-Vaxxers be Pro-Disease?)


I fear that Willful Stupidity is here for a very long time.

In the last 5 years, I have seen increasingly astonishing levels of acting-out stupidity. It's almost at the point where I'm afraid to go anywhere except for work and errands.

Not losing taste/smell is the small silver-lining to getting the Omicron Variant. It remains infuriating that the rest of us (uninfected and vaxxed so far) can still get it.

Health authorities are predicting a very high rate of Omicron infection in Europe and the Americas, but a steep drop-off afterward.

Sighs

Taily:Thank you everyone for agreeing with me that this man is a nuisance

Another one of his Fun Quirks is trying to pressure everyone into drinking when there's alcohol present; I am on doctor's orders to not drink right now because it will mess with the medication I'm on, and I told this to him and he said "it can't be that bad" and "there's really not that much alcohol in this anyway, you'll be fine" (it was Fireball mixed with apple cider, there was that much alcohol in it anyway)

This is not him being a sexual creep towards me as he doesn't have a trace of hetero in him; he's not trying to get me to sleep with him, he's just really out of line for his own bizarre unknown reasons


This behavior sounds like an alcoholic's cluelessness(aka: Denial). Some hard drinkers act like there's something wrong with people who do not drink, and they like to pressure others to drink whenever they do.

Alcohol or not, this guy sounds like a control freak. My way of dealing with such folk is to play hardball with them. It may be cliche' as hell, but the phrase is "Is there any part of 'No' that you don't understand?"

Kokoneos:I'm annoyed because I got into an internet fight about water cleanliness in south america

They were trying to scare me with diseases like giardiasis and leptospirosis... which are endemic in north america too....

It became evident pretty fast that he has a really negative view about how south americans live. Basically saying that they're all swimming in sewage and the locals aren't educated enough to know it's not safe.

FYI- you can catch those diseases in a chlorine pool too. It's why you pay attention to boil orders and don't drink water people swim in.

Or I guess you could just exist without water at all, save yourself the risk of contamination. bleh


The Ugly American never dies.

Many South American countries are poor. When your country is poor, it's goddam hard to keep up your infrastructure. Hell, the US is the richest country on Earth, and our infrastructure is shit compared to Western Europe and Scandinavia.

Once when I was watching that PBS travel show Globe Trekker, the host of the week was doing the trans-Argentinian highway.

At one point the guy is driving through a long uninhabited stretch and water from a rainstorm is flowing across the road. The host mugs at the camera and says, "You'd think they would have heard of bridges here"

Needless to say, that host went onto my list of Complete Tossers.

A turn-signal bulb burned out on my car. I didn't want to have to spend money on a technician to replace it, but I would have had to if the weather stayed bad (I park outside).

The weather dried up and there was no wind. Total time spend replacing the bulb including closing the hatch and throwing away the burnt-out bulb: about 3 minutes.

callmerocket:

I probably just need a night or two of really good, deep, uninterrupted sleep. But the voice in my head that is primarily driven by anxiety is squeaking "A brain tumor! An aneurysm!


Suggestion: Get the Arnold Schwarzenegger voice in your head to emphatically intone:


"It's not a too-mah!"

sherbettcat:I've noticed something. If you had a Venn diagram of people who think the 2020 US general election was stolen and Covidiots, it would just be a circle.



XD !!!!!

Merged Doublepost:

mitchellbravo:No but you see those long covud people are exaggerating or imagining it or outright lying, and even if they weren't it won't happen to that one person, just like they won't need to be hospitalized because they're young and healthy.


Remember when Orange Julius was discharged from Walter Reed Hospital and when he got back to the White House, dramatically ripped off his face mask in front of cameras? And then boasted that it was like mild flu, or something?

Wellllll...the doctors had to put him on oxygen twice during his stay at the hospital. Probably not the invasive ventilator type, but oxygen, period.

I have had severe influenza twice and I didn't need oxygen...


mitchellbravo:

Sorry I'm super bitter, my husband works in *outpatient* (not even emergency) healthcare and they are overwhelmed with the amount of covid cases currently and he gets home at least an hour late every day, and this shit just feels endless and the insinuation from a disappointingly large population thst "democrats want the pandemic to keep going" sets my teeth on edge


You have every right in the universe to be super bitter. The daily danger you both face must be stressful!

Despite having two anti-maskers in my department last year, I have been pretty safe. Those two are gone now, but for unrelated reasons.

Right now, however, 3 co-workers are out in quarantine. The girl friend of one tested postive, so he's out. Another quarantined at the same time, but I don't know if it was on account of exposure to the other co-worker.

The third one is working from home. WFH is not possible for most of us because our work involves receiving, maintaining, and deploying computer systems for the employees of a large corporation.

I'm just grateful that the physical environment I work in has incredibly large floor space and air space.
