The Weird is strong in this one.

Who the hell makes pics with Word?   :lulz:

And pokemon art must be pretty common but...but is that a Sephiroth/Mew hybrid?

This one's a damned monster.

Roger, did you lick these envelopes or did you use some kind of industrial glue on them?  I opened mine three days ago and it's still getting stuck on various surfaces (and body parts).

Response crafted, ought to be mailed today.

Never met a criminal I didn't like.

Try working at a jail.

NO ONE at a jail is likable.  Just saying.

With you 100%, myself included.

Nah, I bet OUTSIDE the jail, you're just ducky.

It's the "in the jail," all workers included, that's the rub.

I'm fortunate in that I don't work directly inside the facility - I have a nice little separate building with a tv and I can bring books and things in, so I can, even while working at a jail, be relatively decent.  The problem is that every single other person you interact with is absolutely miserable and rightly so.  The COs are miserable for being in that setting, the caseworkers are miserable for not seeing a difference, the mental health staff is miserable for dealing with false claims to score meds, the nursing staff is miserable for the risk they're in.

Not to threadjack, Jenne, but I read your write up of trying to get someone in there to help you when you needed something done for your father.  I'm the guy you spoke with on the other end of the phone trying my damnedest to get you the hell off the line.  I even had that almost exact situation arise around the time you did.  It sucks.  There's nothing I personally can do in my position other than direct the call to the proper place.  But it's busy at the proper places and I can't just send everyone through to the guy in charge every time.  Even if it's necessary, that person might just not be available.  And it becomes the boy who cried wolf; everyone thinks they have some great reason to be given special treatment, mostly trying to manipulate the system.  Then when someone like you has a legitimate need for assistance we're choked with so much other bullshit.  So for my part in your nightmare experiences, I am sorry.

Funny thing is, my job is pretty sweet.  I don't get hassled a whole lot, I'm relatively autonomous on my shift, I can do whatever I want during my free time, and the benefits are great.  I just don't know how much longer I can work there because of what it is.

Again, I don't mean to bring all manner of seriousness in this thread, but that's been on my mind off and on since I read about your fiasco and I can't remember if I ever said it.

I imagine the mile and a half range would work in say, Kansas.  What about the rest of the country that has hills and shit? 

Helicopters.

Looking forward to this being handheld technology so we can see it being used on children and the elderly in 10 years or so.

I don't know about margarine's salt content, but I'd guess using unsalted butter would be preferable if substituting.  Though with only a tablespoon of it there probably would be a huge difference.

Went to a tavern today with 69 brews. My friend and I split a "rack", which is a 4 beer sampler for 9 bucks.

We had the Stoudt's Scarlet Lady ESB, which is DELICIOUS, he had Franziskaner since he never had it, Kilkenny Irish Ale, and Berkshire Coffeehouse Nitro Porter. All AWESOME.

I'm a big fan of Berkshire Brewing Company.  There is no better accompaniment to a barbecue (and yes, I mean it in the real sense of the word) than a cold Steel Rail.

Michael Jackson secretly moved to Tucson, and runs a bar where water is turned into wine.

Oh, now I remember that the whole personal info thing following the trolling 4chan argument led me to fuck around with editing all of my first posts that gave away anything about me.  So I guess you could say I'm far more of an idiot now.   :lulz:

DATE CHANGE. NAO 22ND SO WE CAN PARTY TOGETHER WITH FRED.

On a Sunday?  Really?

Yeah I can't come now; working.

2834
Hmm, I really can't see why not.  I mean, I've had a few beers with pd, I've had a meal with pd, but I've never really gotten drunk with pd.

2835
Back.

Apparently, Hirly0 writes like Douglas Adams and... Dan Brown.


Fail analysis is fail.

Brilliant.   :lulz:
