FUFFs...  I really thought you were joking about not wanting to know.  My bad.  Harikiri now underway.

What, you think you're the only person with google?  Anyone here could have figured out what was going on with an internet search, just using the terms "west texas desert prada", but sometimes it's fucking okay to let the surreal be a little surreal.

But congratulations.  You are the Smartest Guy in the Room™.
Fair point.  I should have googled it first to see if the answer was indeed that readily available, instead of presuming that just because I didn't already know the answer, it actually was hard to find.  Amateur SGitR mistake.

That all looks awesome - is it in Marfa? 

(I was all trying to be coy, showed pix to my girl: "Hey, girl-friend, check out /this/ Prada store!". She all like, yea, "Is it still there?  By Big Bend and the Thunderbird?". Me, "WTF?!")

It's 40+ miles from Marfa.  If you tell me what this is about, I will make you pay.

The store?  I have no idea...  (consulting resident expert...).  Hmmn, signs point to it being a "conceptual art piece".  Not sure if I'm buying it.

:eek: Its a thing of beauty!

It is.  More to follow.

Fucking thing is on an AIR BEARING, if you can believe it.  It is not physically connected to the floor.  150 tons, floating 1/8" above it's pier.

Talk about impressive!

Is it because they want ionic buildup of some sort? It's an incredible feat, but WHY tho?
Maybe.  Or it could also be for the equivalent of 'steady-shot', in giant optical arrays.  Seems pretty cool from here.

God may be cosmically lonely.

Aaaand, from a wildly wide angle, I was thinking, at the heart of it, there's some pernicious thought-structure that permits people to believe shit like LOVE = WAR.  As though the greatness of both gave them common fucking grounds, like causal interdependence or whatever pathetic excuse for thought happens to be regurgitated and pass as a connection   It like the crazier (blatantly false and unhealthy) the shit is that you submit to believing in, the less you realize or can even discern the indignities that you elect to self-inflict, like a curse.

I've been rolling this one around for the better part of an hour:


I can't stop hitting myself for how profoundly unfortunate all this shit still is, it's like pure evil, that by now has me torn from love to violently depraved copulations of Trump's morbidly mollified moral fiber and Lincoln's most deviantly rusty rail splitter...

Thought about it, how the the comparison to Trump should not even be drawn, that this problem is actually systemic...  Well, then, by the same measure that he feeds on powerlessness, his own will become immanenty manifest.  And one thing'ss for sure, there's no making a martyr out of him.

[it's just venom, that's what I keep telling myself]

Very much enjoyed this.  Rock-on!

HR manager has been trying to arrange my second meeting with the CEO for longer than I may be able to resist...  I have tried explaining to her the shit-show storm of toxicity that was my first encounter with him, nearly resulting in my permanently leaving the company;  and how my capacity to still work there is built on a very tenuous compartmentalization of ethical concerns that require me not having to tolerate any exposure to said perniciously harmful hypocrisy.

Essentially, I recognize that a bigger man than myself would be able to muster or cajole the compassion nescesary to forgive this CEO for the bad faith under which he operates.  The direct interference I first experienced is something I am now technically over, and, except for rank, our positions and operations have been completely independent for years.  It's like we don't exist to each other now.  That's been great, though not entirely free from effort as a fair amount of compartmentalization still occurs just to ensure that we don't cross paths.

HR insists that things could be better, for everyone, if all that could just magically disappear.  I agree yet have reservations about how much more compartmentalization would be required to get through that second meeting.  CEO has been good about acting as if he's ready to make some concessions, though I suspect the reality is that we won't see eye to eye.  It's then hard for me not to take it personally, because I'm a human being and KNOW my fucking rights...  Anyhow, I should get back to work now. :kingmeh:

Advances in quantum spectrography reveal an entire animistic universe that lives at sub-atomic level.  Turns out that this world is actually a form of purgatory, at the end of which we can either go 'up or down'.  The difference is not so much as to whether we are relegated 'above or below', instead, it is a measure of scale.  Hell, in this case, was discovered during quantum imaging of NaSA's new synthetic quantum-motor oil, that showed the blackened souls of humans straining and wearing against each other to keep the engine's sub-atomic friction down.
