what about when gramma gives your kid a drumset?

I finally got around to looking up something I've wondered about off and on and thought I would share:

Turns out the earth is a prograde planet (as opposed to retrograde).

This means that, if you orient the solar system so that the earth orbits the sun "clockwise" then the earth also rotates about it's own axis "clockwise"

The effect is that every day we spend a little extra time on the sunny side of the planet.

Another effect is that, at night, we are travelling through space at a higher rate of speed which is closer to the speed of light and time is a little slower.

thought I would share, cuz . . . the more you know and stuff.

Today, we proved beyond doubt that the air compressors are not the problem.

We were told to go troubleshoot the compressors ANYWAY.  I was told this in front of the troops, because I apparently cannot even be trusted to communicate instructions to my crew in our quaint language of whistles and grunts.

All of my guys started bellowing out retarded people noises.  I fear that there is an outright mutiny in progress.  I feel that I am not on the side of the captain.

Can't you just, like "find some loose wires" or something and be like, "there, we fixed the compressors"

I see massive explosions and fires in the future.

Nope.  I'm just gonna let the experts handle things, if you catch my drift.

That is possibly the most ominous sentence I have ever read in my life.

We refer to them as "Super Geniuses" here

it is simultaneously a joke disguised as a religion and a religion disguised as a joke

"We don't drink coffee, for health reasons... we put it up our butts instead!"

Why do they think coffee is better for you when taken ANALLY?

Well, it wouldn't stain your teeth...

Why did the chicken cross the road?

because I SAID SO!   :lulz:

I've always interpreted diplomas as a certificate that proves you are trainable.  In my experience, employers don't really want educated employees, they want dumb employees - that are trainable.

My biggest beef with my education experience is that there were no classes teaching you how to deal with real life things like- how does insurance work? what are premiums and deductibles?  how to mortgages work?  what is escrow and PMI?  what are the pros and cons of buying a new car with a warranty vs paying cash for a clunker and budgeting a certain amount of money for repairs?  how do you figure out how much taxes will be taken out of your paycheck? 

you know, how do you deal with The Machinetm type shit

I've got I BS degree. I thought that stood for "bachelor of science" but given how little it's done toward getting me a job it may actually stand for "bullshit"

You could always go back to school and get a "MoreShit" or a "Piled Higher and Deeper"

Is there a distinction between mental illness and mental disorder?  What if someone has the symptoms of, say, ADHD - but they like it that way?? Does that happen?

what are your motivations for dating?
