Surprise me, Eris: Drinks are on the Supreme Court
« Reply #510 on: March 26, 2019, 04:11:09 am »
Today:

I was reaching to unplug a cable, and zapped the little finger of my left hand at 60V.  Tingly and unpleasant, not to mention startling.  It's not as if I brushed my finger against that capacitor's case on purpose, but I didn't expect it to be halfway to line voltage, either.  Good thing I did that one-handed.  I will now give the power supply a wide berth, and unplug the cable at the other end.  I sometimes suspect that I'm a whole lot stupider/clumsier than I give myself credit for.

A mix-up with a certain mutual fund company resulted in some awkwardness at the local bank branch.  Probably weirder for the teller than for me.  (Side note: never buy mutual funds from a neighbour, even if you've known them for years and they're employed with a major financial institution.  His interests are not your interests, and you'll be lucky to beat inflation.)

While walking back from the bank, I saw some broccoli florets scattered under a pine tree.  I'm sure there was some sort of interesting story there.

went to the first LA rideshare Drivers strike. The strike went well i think, but FUCK do i need to stay off the rideshare FB groups. Motherfucking bootlicker douchebags openly BRAGGING about having scabbed today. "Yea i love it when you guys strike. I got so many rides today. Keep it up!" I'm actively wondering what the odds are on more of them being deliberate plants or fucking morons.

This kind of BS is why I dropped out of tabletop communities. I had a tabletop system I was working on focused on politics, social combat and heist sort of gameplay, and the communities soured me on ever fleshing it out beyond running, max, one campaign with some friends some day.

Heist you say?



It plays even better than it reads.

That is horribly sized and I'm not even going to try and fix that.

"Here is the story," Trump began. "I don't want to have them make a big chart. Costs too much and I am a business guy. I asked how much it costs to make a big chart. Like it matters but it matters to me, does that make sense? Two maps identical. Except the one on top was Syria. See that? The one on top was Syria in November of 2016," Trump said. "This is all ISIS. On the bottom, today, the caliphate is gone as of tonight. Pretty good. That is pretty good, right?"

Life can be seen as a game with no reset button, no extra lives, and if the power goes out there is no restarting.  If that's all you see life as you are not long for this world, and never will get it.

Happy Trans Day of Visibility, spags. Also happy 29-Part-IV-th birthday to my high school math teacher. Now that I think about it, his startled reaction face (dubbed by him to be the Face of Cornfusion™) could make a good emote. :lol:

But anyway, it being the abovementioned visibility day, some fabulous weirdos went and covered a map on pixelplace.io (you remember r/place? Yeah, that's a thing again now) in rainbows and other assorted pride flags, and I jumped in with a golden apple on one of em; Eris is slapped right on southern South America. Enjoy, and apologies in advance for the terrible picture quality, but at least the apple becomes more apple-shaped.

O, the Frog fell down to Tehran.
To fix the broken hourglass in the sun.
From the gates, to the city, to the market so pretty,
They'd not leave until they were done.

Said the Goddess to the Frog,
"You'd best be moving along."
So sayeth the water, the words of Anahita,
But the Frog just made themselves a bog.

And lo, they said:

"May I have your shoes, miss?
O great Water Goddess,
I've a journey that I need to start."
She responded from her knowing, wise heart.

With this, said the Goddess,
"Go now, take these shoes with."
And covered their webbed feet with glee.
"You'll do good not to disappoint me."

Thank you for completing the free trial. To view the rest of this poem, nag me about it...I might not respond by giving you the rest of it, but when has that ever stopped you?

Because only real Gs move in silence, like lasagna.

I swear we all went over this in 2016...

Hoopla!
