I'm filling out a job application, and one of the questions is "Tell us what makes you unique. Try to be creative and say something that will catch our eye!"

Am I wrong in interpreting this as "Make up some outlandish shit about yourself"?  I mean, how could something factually accurate be "creative"?

I'm thinking of saying something like "I was born in a dirigible, and can communicate telepathically with creamed corn."

All you put down is "I am very discreet".

Refuse to elaborate if they ask what you mean by that.

Ohhhh... too late. I just finally sent in my application, like, 2 hours ago after alternately struggling with, and willfully neglecting and forgetting about it for 5 days. On the plus side, I am now into season 5 of Smallville. So I've got that going for me, which is nice.

I eventually went with what now seems like the obvious choice of talking about that shooting gallery I've been working on for two years; 2 microcontrollers programmed in 2 languages, a sensor array, talking animals, a shit-ton of wires, etc...

In the deep heart of Ireland, where it rains a whole day's worth of rain in 5 minutes and the internet comes from the early 2000s...
Three men stand in a warehouse wondering what the fuck is happening. How has a job that was supposed to be some simple process optimisation turned into buggering about with wrenches and paper towels and pump ratios and waiting over an hour for resin to cure when it's supposed to take 15 minutes?

Answer: Airlock in the catalyst pump. Probably. We'll see if everything's still sort-of-fixed tomorrow.

I haven't posted here in forever, and few of you probably remember me.

But like. I wanted to say this place, among others, confirms how obvious I was.

I found out this year I'm a transwoman, and this avatar itself is of a transwoman. All my avatars for years were women (save one video game character just recently).

It's just so fucking weird how long it took me to realize this. So naturally I want to tell Discordians about it.

Oh no,  prepare to decide that the majority of Discordians are transphobic.

Thing that was broken earlier in thread in broken again and server gopher nowhere to be found.

Also today I learned that these devices used to reside in this building but were moved for reasons that no one can articulate.  They can't even say it was for money.

I do remember you.

I've heard that's how quite a few people have realised they are trans, incidentally.

Yeah. Pretty much how I found out. I kept talking to trans folks via Discord, and then realized I made more sense this way.

Oh no,  prepare to decide that the majority of Discordians are transphobic.

I'm glad they're not but well. If they were, I technically could excommunicate the fucking lot of em. For all that's worth.

Incidentally, gender is so so so weird and nebulous and I wish it wasn't entirely up to me.

Also I wish I didn't find out I was trans in this presidency.

1.  Welcome back.

2.  You can judge your worth by who your enemies are.  Right now, your enemies are murder clowns.  With bad hair.  Could there actually be a better time to be alive?

Hey Thera! I remember you, too! Your avatar, mostly.

Hi all! Wait, so...I'm Batgirl, if my enemy looks like that, right?

...I look good in glasses anyway.

Also yes my avatar is neat! I put my old username in my signature!

I think I remember you under that name.

Welcome back regardless!

Sorting through my holiday snaps.  Not as many duds as I thought, though I'm probably not going to win any Pulitzers from this stuff.

I assume PD would like to see some?
