Grear, so the third world war is going to be started by the men with the two most stupid haircuts in politics.

But Boris Johnson isn't involved...

Things are going well for the Brexit negotiations

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2017/aug/09/brexit-political-party-james-chapman-david-davis?CMP=Share_AndroidApp_BaconReader_Premium

Quote
The former chief of staff to David Davis has said Brexit is a catastrophe, and suggested that Boris Johnson and other leading Brexit campaigners should be jailed for claiming there would be an extra £350m a week for the NHS after the UK left the European Union.

James Chapman, a former special adviser who now works for a public relations firm, expressed his real views about leaving the EU in an online tirade after working for the Brexit secretary for a year at the Department for Exiting the European Union.

Quote
Chapman went on to direct a series of tweets at cabinet ministers raising concerns about the impact of Brexit on their department. He asked Karen Bradley, the culture secretary, whether she could “confirm all US broadcasters are moving out of London because of the PM’s deranged hard Brexit” and tweeted to Jeremy Hunt, the health secretary, asking how millions of British tourists would maintain access to emergency healthcare while in the EU.

In another question directed at Greg Clark, the business secretary, he said: “I know you don’t agree with this nonsense, but can you confirm it’ll take 7 years to implement alternative Euratom regime?”

Quote
Nearly half of Republicans (47 percent) believe that Trump won the popular vote, which is similar to this finding. Larger fractions believe that millions of illegal immigrants voted (68 percent) and that voter fraud happens somewhat or very often (73 percent). Again, this is similar to previous polls.

Moreover, 52 percent said that they would support postponing the 2020 election, and 56 percent said they would do so if both Trump and Republicans in Congress were behind this.

Ask to transfer to England.  I don't think it's been above 70F all month, since I got back.

I'd be in Manchester.   :lulz:

Moss Side aside, Manchester is actually mostly nice these days.  They've even moved a number of government departments up there.  If the Civil Service weenies aren't drawing hazard pay, it can't be that bad.

Yeah but mancs are all possessed of that - I'm begging you, please please please punch me unconscious - accent. It sounds like someone dragging Joni Mitchell's skull down a blackboard  :argh!:

All accents north of the M4 and south of Hadrians Wall are dumb sounding though.  Think about it:

Brummies? Fuck yes.
Mancunians? Yes.
Yorkshire? It's not the 19th century any more, so yes.
Liverpool? Absolutely.
Geordie? Ur-example of a stupid, incomprehensible accent.
Welsh? Don't even get me started.

FBI did a dawn raid on Paul Manafort's home 2 weeks ago.  Had a search warrant too, despite Manafort "fully cooperating" with their investigation.

Meanwhile, the Donald is throwing about threats of nuclear war with North Korea.

Well I have two masters degrees and the person next step down in terms of chain of command not only doesn't have any, she doesn't know what the tab button on the computer does.  We work with computers on a daily basis and she's been here 18 months.

Has she time traveled to this age from a hundred years ago, to not know what the tab button does?

Her gender and sex politics certainly have.

I won't recount the time she embarrassed the entire team, herself, a new student and their family because the parents were a gay couple and she couldn't stop making a complete arse of herself about it.

BTW, a NSC staffer was basically parrotting Breivik until McMasters shitcanned him

https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2017/08/a-national-security-council-staffer-is-forced-out-over-a-controversial-memo/535725/

You seriously need to read this.  An NSC staffer wrote an official memo (which Trump may have read), alleging that Marxists, Islamists, bankers and the "deep state" are trying to take Trump down through "Maoist insurgent warfare".

Honestly? No-one seems to be hiring.

Less than two days back at work and:

1) I have been locked out of my work computer account.  No emails, no access to the server, no access to student records, no access to maintenance.
2) I have been put on an entire shift for my own, despite being away for a month
3) It's also a weekend
4) I've had to sit through two 45 minute long handovers that should've taken 5 minutes due to co-worker incompetence and dithering
5) I've had to explain to students that no, they cannot just invite friends here overnight, and no they cannot give me money to make that happen.  There are 3 notice boards on every floor with this information, along with it being in their induction pack and told to them upon arrival
6) Had to explain to students where the laundry is, despite being part of the induction
7) Had to explain to a student where their kitchen is, despite them being here for a week at this point.
8) Found multiple clerical errors

Speaking of Bruma, I finally got around to levelling a couple of characters and I'm planning on recording me playing it blind once I've advanced them a little further.  Well, like 90% blind.  I know that there is no main quest (that will come with the full Cyrodiil: Seat of Sundered Kings release) and I do know that there are some pretty steep speech checks (and lets be fair, it is Cyrodiil.  Until Skyrim fucked up the schema, Imperials always had the highest starting Personality/Speech skills, and it is the centre of a decaying empire filled with intrigue and plots).

I was originally going to take my weird battlemage, but I'm thinking if speech scores are that important my thief/bard would be better.  Not sure though. Either way I'm using Ordinator so it automatically should be more fun and interesting than normal Skyrim, whichever I choose.
