Sky Hut (six images down). Truly remarkable, a newtonian tele-microscope for observing ants. And yep I'm sure given GB's clement weather that roof is gonna be open a lot. Note to Bruce best not this one.

Still alive, but barely. Conditions at work have declined to "shit's not funny anymore" levels. Sanity is nearly depleted. Took a one week vacation for the first time ever. Got a haircut and watched the last of the brown hair on my right side fall to the floor. It's all white on the right now. I look like I got slapped upside the head by death.

Death took one of my co-workers last week. I've been rather sore with him for leaving me behind. :|

Still a shame about my 5 bucks though.

Turned out to be one of those situations where they already had an internal candidate picked but had to interview external candidates "for legal reasons". I don't understand why interviewing candidates you don't intend to hire is the law, but that's bullshit that should be illegal. Complete waste of everyone's time. :x

Interviewer: What characteristic would you say is your strong point?

I am honest

Interviewer: How will that help our company?

I don’t give a fuck.

I didn't say it was the same, I said it was related. The job candidate's answers are essentially the same in both versions.

Change jobs.
Change forums. That'd be easier on all of us.

Dipshit. :)

This precisely why I went with concealed carry.


Although admittedly, I did not get the job,









Still, it was emotionally validating.

I prefer being on ignore by people who would otherwise just heckle me.

Ah, back on topic at last instead of that mess of fart gas from The Cornfield. :) (BTW Corn-fielders, I still love you, but I simply don't need to hear anything you have to say. Blame it on me if it makes you feel better about yourselves.)

When you decide a post is not interesting to you, then yes that is on you, not anyone else. So, you can take your blame game and fuck right off.

Caveat: Some of them at that link look like they might be photoshopped.

Yeah, I think you might be right. No one in their right mind would have a telescope that close to a grill.

Edit to add: Jeez you got a lair worthy of some billionaire and all you got is a 60mm K-Mart special?
