I learned today at my new job that there is a code for nuclear power plant disasters and I probably shouldn't use that one for testing purposes.

It was odd.  My co-worker thought it may have been some kind of set-up for a prank on some insipid reality TV show.

I don't think he complained though.  I think my manager took it upon himself, because he likes to occasionally throw his weight around and remind everyone he's Da Boss - usually by flipping his shit over petty things like this.

He's still going on about the pet man, by the way.  He tried to simultaenously backpedal while insinuating I was to blame.  All of this is via a group email for the entire department, by the way, and has been since his initial response.  So I just told him if he puts that little faith in my judgement he can put me in a disciplinary meeting, because I did nothing wrong, and I'll act that way again in similar circumstances.  I also reminded him that he wasn't actually there and I was, and that I wasn't going to put up with his insinuations.

And then I wrote an email to his boss, relating how I'd just had the shittiest night in months and now I was being harassed via email for situations where I did nothing wrong.

I'm also on 2 weeks of holiday from tomorrow, so...  :lulz:

Well-played, sir!
Im guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk, Charles Wick said. It was very complicated.

Uhhhh, learning is good? I guess?

Well the thing that they are on puts a feed on top of whatever is broadcast, automatically.  Now you have to be extra sure the bypass to that is on.  Just in case, you put something benign in.  Otherwise whatever you put in goes live.

I need a vacation.

Like, seriously. I left Pennsic early because I couldn't take it anymore. The heat was too much, the people were too much, and my new best friend, named Anxiety, was too much. That was not a vacation, that was a fucking nightmare for me. Except for that part where I was urged by several people to submit my thesis for presentation at Kalamazoo, and when I bought $400 worth of fabric from a crack dealer in the Czech Republic. (Sartor. Look them up.)

I've done too fucking much lately, and my brain is taking the toll.

Part of me wonders if tuning out of the internet for a few weeks would be enough. Or maybe just work on new projects without obligation. I have another convention coming up, this one in Long Beach, and it just got triple-booked with Navy and SCA shit. This is getting out of hand. I want to cancel life and crawl under a rock.

I am just curious why people would willingly stagger around in armor and period clothing in worst heat wave in memory?

The heat index is literally, no-joking, worse than it was for the crusaders.

I can't say it would be my first choice of things to do.  But anywhere south of Italy is too hot for me, so....

We didn't. They called off all martial activities on Thursday, and then again on Friday I think. Some people were being real assholes about it, namely the Florida and Gulf Coast kingdoms, but when the kingdoms from Texas and Arizona had people falling out, they shut up.

I had other issues, and almost shivved a fucker in camp for throwing his kid to the ground. He proceeded to get into my face on Thursday, and I decided it was in the best interest of everybody that I left early. So I paid the extra, and caught my flight back that day. I'm sure the heat didn't help, but I told him, the next time I saw him abuse his wife or children, I would fucking kill him.

He told me to stop pretending my dick was bigger than his, and then threw ad homina about my education and my husband. You know, the usual government leechy stuff. Charming.

I don't think he thinks I'm serious about the killing part. I was so fucking angry I called my sister for advice, which sounds like a horrible idea, but as she's been in this situation before in other capacities, I needed her point of view. She reminded me that we were trained to walk away first, so, I did. I'm taking a year or two off, and Jeff won't let me go by myself anymore. He said it was because my stress and anxiety have been too much lately, but probably because I said the .45 is coming with me next time.

Child abuse may be medieval, but not on my fucking watch. I can end this shit a lot faster with a bullet than a kick, and I will gladly serve life in prison if it meant one last wife and kid beater is 6 feet under.

Set him up for a SWATing.  No need to do it yourself.

Word is on the grapevine my boss is fuming at the emails I sent the other night, though it's not clear whether it's more the content of my response, or the fact I did it publically that has him angrier.  My department head also wanted to speak with me, but, of course, I'm on holiday so I'm just like "lolnotcheckingmymail".

Im guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk, Charles Wick said. It was very complicated.

We don't have a computer in the house that will run it. :(

If someone does the Fine, youre right, Im clearly a terrible person, Im Satan, Im the worst person alive, I should just die thing in response to criticism of their harmful behavior, they are trying to manipulate people and flip the situation around so that they look like a victim.

As a neuroscientist I have to disagree with the perception that anyone is doing mathematical modeling of cognitive intelligence, yet; intelligence as an economist defines it, yes, but economists are worlds away from actual cognition.
