I mean, I have the color/taste/smell thing, but that seems much more common.

Here's a video that got me interested in the conversation again. 

Brains are so weird.  I love it.

Aren't they, though?
Im guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk, Charles Wick said. It was very complicated.

Awesome, P3nt!


Also, did anyone else know that the Chao te Ching was a reference on Wikipedia's discordianism page?  Because I didn't, and I think it's exciting for some reason.   :?

"Hope in reality is the worst of all evils because it prolongs the torments of man." - Nietzsche.

Which is my way of saying my copy of The Great Ordeal is now running late.  Just wrote a pissy email via Amazon, asking why my shit hadn't arrived and why I hadn't been notified and where is my shit now.  To add to the good news, my department head wants to meet up for an informal chat, outside of the office.  Debating whether to fake insomnia induced psychosis during the meeting or just explain how the company business model is fucked.

Also found out an interesting secret about the crazy co-worker, the one trying to gaslight me.  Turns out she's not just the department head's pet (which was how she was pushing her agenda before now, by going above my manager's head), her mother heads up the same department at one of the other schools, outside of London.  As such, the mother also has a cordial relationship with my boss. 

This is how the old school tie networks work things.  Because crazy co-worker is a private school student, even though she went to a terrible uni and has less than a year of experience in boarding.  She put in a word with mummy, and mummy leaned on a friend and got a job for her.  Says something about her CV though, if she requires a family leg-up to get ahead in this place.  I mean, the previous Senior Houseparents were the ones who misspelled "potato" and "spatula".

And yes, yes it does.  So much lail.

I didn't realize that, but I'm guessing Cram is to blame.

It is cool, though!

I strongly advise you to surreptitiously record this conversation. Don't forget to make a joke at the start about "This conversation's being recorded you know..."

This, all the way.

I'm now in the process of being hired on to the company I'm contracted for. I previously suspected that they'd only do so after moving me to core hours (Not weekends or nights), but they liked me so much, they decided to tie the knot while I was still working weekends. Better benefits and pay await, as well as growing potential for moving up to management.
Atlas Shrugged is great and all, but when you have IBD like I do, you need something softer like Charmin Ultra Soft. It's also easier on the plumbing on the way down.

I am arguing with a not-a-racist-but-realist who posted stuff from a known supremicist site.  Funny that.

So I "sold out" and I feel fine.

I'm now making some good money at a multinational corporation.

When I told my previous boss about their offer she gave me a high five.

Congratulations.  Good money is better than shit money, and selling out has nothing to do with the job you take (except for Chris Christie, and fuck THAT guy).
