Please don't disturb me while I'm plotting to overthrow you.
I wish I did have actual numbers to compare to the general population. Because of stories like this one:If only we had some people with researching skills that look up these interesting and new things for us.
I would gladly pay for some paper object filled with this kind of thing.
Because they are filled with new and interesting facts we could maybe call them interestingpapers?
I have heard legends of such things existing in the past, the people that did this kind of work were called journalists or something like that.
I audibly sucked air through my teeth and winced.
So, had a workplace injury last night. UAnd as the result of a completely preventable workplace accident, I have ended up losing a thumb.
Well, part of a thumb.
Well, half the nail of the thumb. On my non-dominant hand.
But it really fucking hurts.
Ouch.... I cringed a little bit
Prepare to cringe more. The sliced bit of nail didn't come off clean, it was about 3/4 of the way through, but it was left hanging there. So, naturally, I had to rip it off the rest of the way.
Just finished Daemon by Daniel Suarez where a computer daemon takes over when it scans and finds the original coder's obituary...then it takes over the world. It was really good, imo. Some parts are a bit of a stretch...like someone coding this thing was bug free. there's no such thing as bug free....but I was able to suspend my disbelief because the rest of it was pretty good
Something from the Nightside was also decent...just finished that as well. It had a bit of a pulp feel but was WAAAAAY better than the first book of The Dresden Files....that bland piece of shit ...I can't believe I finished it.
Now I'm reading Damed by Chuck Palahniuk. Still not sure about this....it reads a bit like lousy teenage fanfic. plowing ahead though.
I have stuff to say about this, but I'm posting via phone.
Short form: Dad decided not to continue cancer treatment, though he knew it would end his life sooner. So he both suffered AND killed himself.
