It's almost comforting to know that, even in 2014, I can still save an Excel file and close the program, only to lose the last three hours of work when I reopen the file. Almost.
ow. damn, bruh. And right after I got all mushy about OneNote. *shakes fist at Redmond* - MoTO: Tufted Coqeutte
Yeah, this hasn't happened in a long time. At least I invented five new swear words. - Steven Perez

It's hella expensive to be poor in California :-(
Yes it is. - vicster: full-bodied
Word. - Jed
truth. - Lnorigb
You ain't never lied. - Corinne L
Seriously. - Yvonne from FFHound!
Without a doubt. - Steve C
It's expensive to be poor in northern NJ, too. Only slightly lower than California, as long as you are not stupid enough to own a car. (insurance rates are crazy here) - April Russo
Gas is hella high, groceries keep going up, & they're gonna skyrocket as the drought continues. My water bill is nearly $100 a month & I don't have any water-using appliances outside the water heater. I've refused so far to give up all hope and cancel cable & internet, but the way food prices are going...sheesh. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I'm usually running a fan whatever room I'm in, & J uses a lot of electricity with TV & games & stuff. We do okay remembering to conserve but I know we could lower our usage. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Thank goodness for low income discounted rates - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
& my car insurance is above basic coverage and really cheap. That's lucky. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
The high prices on fresh produce saddens me because I know a lot of it has to do with the drought. That's a crazy high water bill - have they come to check for leaks that would cause the high rate? - Corinne L
One of the things that really sucks about poverty is that you end up paying more for electricity. When you can't keep your freezer and fridge packed full, it costs more to run that refrigerator just to keep the few items you do have cold/frozen. The more food prices rise, the less you can afford to put in there, and the more you end up wasting on electricity. I have found that packing... more... - April Russo
I had no idea the fridge being full or empty affected the energy use. Ours is at least 15 years old, that might up the usage too huh? - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
& my water bill is pretty average, our usage is within the "water saver" tier. But there's city & state surcharges, a sewer fee, etc. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
My fridge is 18 years old, so we are in similar situations when it comes to the age of our fridge. But yes, how much you do or don't have in it does affect energy usage. The less you have in it to hold the cold, the more frequently the compressor kicks on to cool it. - April Russo

Are you one of those people who will choke down bad coffee because you paid for it? I randomly decided to get a large coffee with my McD's breakfast. It's terrible. However, I AM one of those people so I'm gonna drink it even if it takes me all day. And the colder it gets, the worse it tastes.
Has coffee at McDonald's recently gone downhill? I thought it was a one-seed in terms of coffee -- right up there with Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts. - Julian
Heck no. I'd dump it and find proper coffee. ;) - Jenny H. from Android
I've had good coffee from them before so I was surprised by the quality. That's also why I upgraded to the large as well. <shrug> The sample size is just too small to be sure. - CAJ hates pants
I'd drink it. - Rodfather from Android
Caffeine is the drug, sometimes the medicine tastes bad, I still take the medicine. - Janet from FFHound!
Study confirms you're not alone. "But once we've formed an eating habit, we no longer care whether the food tastes good. We'll eat exactly the same amount, whether it's fresh or stale." http://articles.latimes.com/2011... - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
I ended up not finishing it. But mostly because I had a Code Red Mountain Dew that was much tastier. :) - CAJ hates pants
As my dad says, "McDonald's coffee tastes like panther piss." I drank it one time....that was too much! - Jenny
Nope. - Steven Perez from Android
nope; bad might give me a migraine, and NO WAY IMMA RISKING THAT, :O - chaz2b
Nah, I'll find something else to drink. - Jennifer Dittrich
Life's too short to spend it drinking bad coffee. Dump that shit! - Jim: with more caffeine!

Iago: "From Othello. You are a plotter and a schemer, and work hard to achieve what you think is rightfully yours. But you must always try not to let your jealousy get the best of you." - Mark H
"You got: Bottom - From A Midsummer Night's Dream. Life is difficult. Sometimes yours seems like one hard knock after another. However, people fall in love with your self-deprecating humor and your enthusiasm for getting things right. You move in and out of different social circles easily because class and status mean very little to you." - Me
I got Guard #3. :/ - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Lady Macbeth. I know why. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
"Ariel, From The Tempest. You're a powerful soul who tends to give your power over to others. You love to help and you often feel indebted to those who are kind to you. Like Ariel, you are playful, friendly, and fiercely loyal. When you can shake off the feelings of guilt, you are a joyful, free spirit." - chaz2b
Iago. All I know is that he's a complete dick in The Serpent of Venice. - Eivind from Android
Iago. - Betsy
Bottom. Yep. - Steven Perez from Android
Hamlet:From Hamlet. Is anyone on your side? It's hard to tell. People lie. People cheat. People look out for themselves. Everyone tells you what you should do so it is often difficult to make your own decisions. Follow your inner voice despite all the noise. It will not lead you astray. - LB hates stale candy!

grinding.be » Joshua Ellis revisits the Grim Meathook Future - http://grinding.be/2012...
"It’s my experience that most venture capitalists and serial entrepreneur types are almost identical, personality-wise, to the street hustlers and drug dealers whose acquaintance I’ve made over the years. They may wear polo shirts instead of Fubu and spend their money on organic produce instead of custom hubcap rims, but they operate on the same principle: waking up every day figuring out new ways to get paid. Whether these ways are good for society as a whole, or even for the person who’s doing the paying, is a minor consideration next to the paycheck itself. And if you’re not a means to that end, well, fuck you. More than once, I’ve seen the exact same behavior in a Stanford-educated dot.com startup founder at a tech meetup and a smacked-out panhandler on the Las Vegas Strip: they’re all smiles and handshakes when they approach you, but as soon as they realize you’re not a potential mark with an open wallet you can watch their eyes go dead and look right through you, on to the next target." - Steven Perez
"I hate these people and wouldn’t piss on most of them if they were on fire, but that’s fine; I hate bankers and lawyers too, like every other blowhard bohemian iconoclast does, and I doubt any of them are losing any sleep over it. What bothers me is that we’ve effectively put these walking hardons in charge of building that capital-F Future, in every sector of the innovation industry, from genetically grown food to biotechnology to communications to spaceship-building." - Steven Perez
"And none of them, not a single one, is interested in any Future if they can’t sell it for a serious profit. Nor do they care if the process of selling and profiting leaves a swath of collateral damage the size of a Gulf Coast oil spill in its wake. Which leaves those six billion other people, the people who don’t live in the Big Room with you and me and Peter Thiel and Mark Zuckerberg, pretty well fucked." - Steven Perez
"The real Grim Meathook Future, the one I talked about back when I wrote that thing and the one I see now, is the future where a relatively small slice of our species lives in a sort of Edenic Eloi reality where the only problems are what we laughingly refer to as White People Problems, like being able to get four bars’ worth of 4G signal at that incredible pho joint that @ironicguy69... more... - Steven Perez
Searing: "That’s what Silicon Valley is for: making shit for people with disposable incomes to buy. (And making shit for companies to buy so their workflow is more efficient, so the people who own the company and work for the company can buy more of the other shit.) If it was ever about trying to make the world a better place, that train left the station a long time ago..." - WoH: Professor MOTHRA

Random musing: Do YouTube comment sections bring out the worst in humanity, or do they just unveil and unmask what humanity is all about? (thought inspired by missespeon's post http://missespeon.tumblr.com/post... )
I'm not that versed in philosophical works, but I feel like some philosopher must have covered this already. Is there a name for this argument? - Victor Ganata
Oh man. I lose faith in humanity when I read them. - Jenny H. from Android
Yes. - Steven Perez from Android
I guess it's the Penny Arcade Greater Internet Fuckwad Theory, but I'm sure it's older than that. Like, do perverse conditions just make inherently decent people totally shitty? Or are people really just that inherently shitty, but we don't usually get that much insight into people's inner workings? - Victor Ganata
Basically, are people mostly decent, or are people mostly shitty? It can't really be both. (Well, it can, but I'm speaking in very wide essentialist generalizations here. :D ) - Victor Ganata
I think people feel they can act like assholes on the Internet because of relative anonymity. They probably bite their tongues more when dealing with people face-to-face. Does that still make them inherently shitty? Perhaps. - Jenny H. from Android
