Doing everything exactly opposite from "The Mainstream" is the same thing as doing everything exactly like "The Mainstream."  You're still using What Everyone Else is Doing as your primary point of reference.

No commentary on this? That must have been some pandemic.

It's more that PD is a combination scratchpad/museum now.  We have about 5 regular posters, by which I mean "posts once in a week."

Also, some folks aren't allowed to talk to me because you know.

Still?  :horrormirth:

I have seen grown-ass adults actually submit to that.

I did a double take when I got to "Bones", cant fault that knowledge of his process control though, takes someone who really loves their system to think of ways to improve them like

Well, it's not our system, we just get paid to make things more efficient.

It went really well, too.  We got a whole cow through the grinder in less than 5 minutes.

Mother of God. A whole cow is a lot of bone, fat and cartilage. Is the machine okay after that?

There's over 100 of us in this meat-suit. You'd think it runs like a ship, but it's more like a hundred and ten angry ghosts having an old-school QuakeWorld tournament, three people desperately trying to make sure the gamers don't go hungry or soil themselves, and the Facilities manager weeping in the corner as the garbage piles high.

It is.  There was more spray than anticipated.

PLEASE tell me there's a budget line-item for cow-shrapnel-resistant kevlar vests. I need this joy. Lie if you must.

I've heard of such behavior. But it's supposed involve whips and foot licking.
I'm not sure if you're describing half-ass humiliation, or humiliation so extreme that they don't even get the whole package.

I keep telling them that, but they keep looking at me all sideways and pointing at the contract, which specifies "dead animals".  Humans ARE animals.

It's a little finer than "shrapnel".  It's more like a splash shield for your face and a big apron.

DAMN. We can't have nice things. Rowling is still drawing breath and the grinder won't murder a man who is calmly and innocently watching a cow slurped down its mechanical gullet from ten feet away. Fuck it all.

Weaponized Cowgrinder is my new brutal death metal band name anyway.

I got a call from a colleague who is still in the biz, although at a different company that I was at.

They tried to design a drone that would mine metals out of landfills, but they forgot to put in any kind of IFF.

So the drones scrapped each other, as they were the highest concentration of metal in the immediate area.

This makes me feel even more optimistic about the future than I normally am.
