Agree about the quality of life past 70, but it seems like it might hit him well before then, though.

Lifeís not worth living without real pizza. Gluten free pizza is godawful. Youíll forget about your health after trying to choke thar shit down. Besides, are you just going to be eating cheese pizza, because there arenít many healthy and tasty pizza toppings. You wonít make it through two slices before dropping this foolish crusade.

Do you really want to live to be elderly? I love you, Atra, but whoís going to take care of you? If youíre eating pussy food like gluten free pizza, no woman will ever breed with you. Without a wife or children to help you when youíre old, youíre just going to end up in a crooked elderly home, getting molested by teenagers, or worse, homeless and crazy.

Global warming will make every living day miserable in the next 30 years or so. Itís not worth living through that. And if you do, youíll live in an ever-worsening and depressing world as scarcity of key resources starts to seriously affect the first world. Live a life worth living now. Eat the goddamned real pizza.

Fuck, get extra pepperoni.

Now that I know that Iím genetically predisposed to get colon cancer the only pizza I can have now is the fake kind that vegans/vegetarians and people with celiac disease eat.

:brazilcry

We're all going to die and there's no point in living past 70; those years suck ass anyway.  Eat the good (bad) pizza anyway.

Quote
The largest stars in the Universe are supergiant stars. These are monsters with dozens of times the mass of the Sun. Unlike a relatively stable star like the Sun, supergiants are consuming hydrogen fuel at an enormous rate and will consume all the fuel in their cores within just a few million years. Supergiant stars live fast and die young, detonating as supernovae; completely disintegrating themselves in the process.

Witnessing something that exciting actually sounds like the cure to most people's ennui. The few remaining people suddenly have a role in life, existence becomes a struggle, etc.

Because I'm afraid that I'll end up somewhere worse or that I have to move to some expensive as fuck city where my pay will be higher but my standard of living will be a lot lower.

 :brazilcry

edit: for example, I could end up making $50K in Atlanta but living expenses would eat into a good chunk of my salary and I would end up scraping by like I do with my $30K salary in the small city I live in now. Also, I wouldnít have the benefit of my current social connections (my brother allowing me to live out of his nice house, my friend that gets me weed, etc.)  :doge

I just remembered I got assigned to help somebody with a work project. Last update went:

Me: Okay so would you and the engineer be fine with xyz location for the sampling port?

Colleague: The ops plan states this and we should just follow it.

*pastes paragraph from ops plan*

Me: Yeah I wrote that paragraph as vaguely as possible because we didn't decide anything yet and we'll be held to whatever we submit to regulators. My suggestion is xyz location.

I haven't received a response in a week, is this the point where I'm allowed to burn the office to the ground?

It feels like any decent project manager either becomes a consultant or move on to a different role.

Someone in my apartment building got a new dog that howls and cries everytime it's left alone and it goes on for an hour or two at a time and then it probably falls asleep but if someone makes a loud noise somewhere in the building the dog starts crying again  :-\  And it's so heartbreaking to hear! I feel like I should go feed it through the letter box like Elaine on Seinfeld...

If it wasn't my last week of hanging around with nothing to do at home all day I'd leave the owner a note that I can dogsit. Well, come next week I shouldn't hear it much anymore. Still feel bad for the doggo  :-\

Sat at breakfast today, listening to my new BT earphones. I'd paired them to a tablet and my phone, and they'd done a pretty great job determining where they should be paying attention. Until this morning. It chimes and announces "disconnected" and "connected" with such frequency that I can't hear the podcast at all.

Like, considering I have a $25 pair of wireless headphones that connect effortlessly most of the time, and sound pretty good, it's embarrassing to complain about. Definitely a champagne problem. Didn't seem trivial at the moment though.

Today was one of those days that the only choice I had was to let my rage fuel my work. It made for a productive day, but holy hell, I've left so much desolation behind me.

Weird. That was looking like how it was going to go for me as well, but then I got sanity checked by one good fellow on my team. Seriously, I was starting to think I was going to have to supply the IT division with new orifices, the locations of which they would not be eligible to choose.

Went to change a bathroom faucet for my mom. Easy enough job.

Until I got to the flange or whatever. The bathroom hasn't been touched since they bought the house 25 years ago. Who knows how long before then any work had been done, but the pipes under the sink aren't normal PVC pipes with twistable connectors/washers, they are instead bigger than normal pipes that seem to be entirely fitted together with no way to loosen them, so getting the old flange off was such a fucking struggle due to there being no space on account of being unable to just disconnect the pipes. So I finally get that off, now I'm covered in the shit from Prometheus, I put the new one in and...the washer/gasket on it makes it stick up too much in the sink so it doesn't seal and therefore leaks. Oh, and the new one also is just slightly too small for these weirdo pipes so it isn't snug or secure even when the washer and gasket are on tight, so it leaks there too. Oh, and they're different types so I can't use the old one. Oh and then the drain part and the flange got stuck and won't come unscrewed from each other despite barely being connected in the first place, so there's no way I can even try to put the old disgusting part that doesn't match and is old and disgusted back in.

i was making a dumb post in the dumpster thread and remembered this that happened a while ago

department needs to replace its main first level statistics books because it's for outdated SPSS versions and nobody thought to ask the department before letting the license lapse, so they also started exploring other software packages for it

i found a book that covered like four or five of them that they have been considering including even R and was real good at basic teaching how to use them, the department rejected it because it didn't include anything on politics, all the examples were like counting oranges or bananas or apples or whatever

of course, the department wants to subscribe to some massive package rather than using, to pick a random one, SageMath as a GUI for R, even though none of the courses really do much you can't do with Excel's tools, and the licenses for this don't apply to the profs research anyway.

Someone has been promoting WINKS for years because they used it as an undergrad or grad or something at FSU I think, even though it's not technically Windows 10 (or 8 even) compatible and I don't even remember if it has Linux or Mac versions, BUT this image is literally on the WINKS homepage:

Welp. I think the desolation I left earlier this week is nothing compared to the smoldering crater I've left today. It was a move you only hear about in shows and hushed rumors of things that happen to friends of friends.  They wanted a bus, I threw a nuke.  I'm on the verge of pulling the whole team. Up to executives now.

Brother, when you can finally use some bleach in the bathrooms without people bitching about the smell, or vacuum without having to have people act like they're inconvenienced to lift their feet for 10 seconds, and not have anyone asking you to do 10 other things when you're clearly in the middle of doing something else already (and it's cleaning up their messes to begin with), it's  :aah as hell

Had a weekend at home with the family, took an early morning train back to my current place of employment, 4 hours in transit, and have worked a full day. Brain stopped working about 30 minutes ago. Not sure if I'm cut out to be away from my family for three weeks at a time. already thinking about how to move back to a local-to-home job.
