After seeing fish and chips as your main menu options for a month, it does cross your mind. - Todd Hoff
After international travel, I accept being called 'depraved'. - Anika from Android
We can be pretty annoying. :) - Ken Morley
Where's the quote from? - Brent Schaus
LOL, from a Tinder profile. - Victor Ganata
Sorry? - Brent Schaus from FFHound!
I've liked most Canadians I've met, but customer service in Alberta was...bad. - Jenny H. from Android
Customer service in AB? Never heard of it. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!

I went to the Gilroy garlic festival once, nearly 20 years ago. That was the last time I danced with my daddy, to a swing band playing there. He's currently working to lose weight so he can get knee replacements. When he gets em, and is more mobile, I wanna dance with him again. <3

Confession for context: I've only watched the first two episodes of Silicon Valley, but am hooked on H&CF.
H&CF is 10x better than Silicon Valley. Less quotable, but I'll take a high-quality drama over some hit or miss jokes. Also, Beta's hit the comedy portion of tech, better, IMO. And they predicted Monkey Parking and a few other services. - NOT THE CRICKET
I've been really enjoying H&CF but I'm on E07 and Gordon's going a bit crazy and it's disturbing... - Steve and 4 other people
It was meant to be disturbing, I think. I really liked that episode. (Between the pressure and traumatic event in E06, it makes sense). E08 is even better. - NOT THE CRICKET
I am looking forward to watching H&CF. and I'm looking forward to seeing season 2 of Betas more than season 2 of SV. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Stephen, sadly Betas was not picked up for a 2nd season by Amazon - Chris Topher
Chris Topher, Betas hasn't been canceled yet, it's just on hold and Amazon hasn't made their final decision, yet. - NOT THE CRICKET
I read that they made the decision back in March to not renew it. "And while Amazon was pleased enough with the results for political comedy “Alpha House” that it’s bringing it back for a second season, the Silicon Valley-set “Betas” is not being renewed. Maybe they changed their mind /shrug " and-renews-alpha-house-1201150016/ - Chris Topher
I thought all the articles were released at once in March. This one was a few weeks prior though, and Amazon had to clarify they hadn't made final decisions yet. The Variety article still looks like they're trying to figure it out. - NOT THE CRICKET

On the shuttle to the airport. Step one of travel odyssey achieved.
Where are we going today,Brain? *NARF* - MoTO: Tufted Coqeutte
At the airport and checked in with 2 hours to spare. Part one of step two achieved. - t-ra: WeirdnessSandwich from Android
Flight to Boston delayed an hour. Part 2 of step 2 not yet achieved. Was hoping I'd get through this without going to the smoking lounge. - t-ra: WeirdnessSandwich from Android
Arrived at the happy couple's home with two visiting Brits. Their flight experience was worse than mine, so I sucked it up. There's beer. All is well. Step 3 of travel achieved. - t-ra: WeirdnessSandwich from Android

Opinion: The unspoken truth about managing geeks -
Ego, as it plays out in IT, is an essential confidence combined with a not-so-subtle cynicism. It's not about being right for the sake of being right but being right for the sake of saving a lot of time, effort, money and credibility. IT is a team sport, so being right or wrong impacts other members of the group in non-trivial ways. Unlike in many industries, in IT, colleagues can significantly influence the careers of the entire team. Correctness yields respect, respect builds good teams, and good teams build trust and maintain credibility through a healthy projection of ego. Strong IT groups view correctness as a virtue, and certitude as a delivery method. - Andy Bakun from Bookmarklet
When things don't add up, they are prone to express their opinions on the matter, and the level of response will be proportional to the absurdity of the event. The more things that occur that make no sense, the more cynical IT pros will become. Standard organizational politics often run afoul of this, so IT pros can come to be seen as whiny or as having a victim mentality. Presuming... more... - Andy Bakun
Good IT pros are not anti-bureaucracy, as many observers think. They are anti-stupidity. The difference is both subjective and subtle. Good IT pros, whether they are expected to or not, have to operate and make decisions with little supervision. So when the rules are loose and logical and supervision is results-oriented, supportive and helpful to the process, IT pros are loyal, open,... more... - Andy Bakun
IT pros would prefer to make a good decision than to get credit for it. What will make them seek credit is the danger that a member of the group or management who is dangerous to the process might receive the credit for the work instead. That is insulting. - Andy Bakun
Like anyone else, IT people tend to socialize with people who respect them. They'll stop going to the company picnic if it becomes an occasion for everyone to list all the computer problems they never bothered to mention before. - Andy Bakun

"Be Excellent To Each Other" training sounds so much more appealing than "Sexual Harassment Training".

Admitting defeat of de feet. Coming soon: massive sale-slash-giveaway of beautiful shoes that the rheumatoid & spondylitis make it impossible to wear. I'm keeping the Sanitas, Danskos, and sneakers. All the pretty stuff and the winter stuff will be up for grabs. If you or a friend is a 9.5M, stay tuned....
I hate this. So sad!!!! - Mary Carmen from iPhone
It's okay. I'm comforting myself with promises that I will only wear cool Sanita print clogs. Size 41, y'all. ;) - ωαřмaiden ❤Bassetmom❤
I will worship the ground you (now comfortably) walk on for cute winter stuff. - Meg VMeg
Also, Fluevogs. Many Fluevogs need new homes. - ωαřмaiden ❤Bassetmom❤
Meg, I have lots of low heel booties, by Born, Naturalizer, Crown Vintage/Born - ωαřмaiden ❤Bassetmom❤
I am sad about your loss, but I'm glad that we live in a time in which shoes can be both cute and comfy. - Katy S
I'm also sad about your loss, but evilly rubbing my hands together as I can wear that size. - Christina Pikas
dear lord, you said the F-word - Meg VMeg

What is up with the highest temp being at 5 pm? o_O
Is that unusual there? - Eivind from Android
I've always expected the temperature to peak between 1-2pm. This seems really late. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
I think that's a fairly typical time here in summer. I wonder if the latitude is the main factor (the sun's trajectory). - Eivind from Android
Around here it's near 4 pm or 5 pm this time of year. - Katy S from iPhone
That makes sense. I guess I never really paid attention to it before. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
The temperature peaked at 3pm today. I guess it depends on how much humidity there is, too. - Victor Ganata
high temp peak is usually around 4pm here in DFW in the summertime. - Big Joe Silence

I should never impulse buy pants. Duped by fake pockets. (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻
Fake pockets are almost as bad as fake drawers in cupboards. Stop making fake containers for things!! Won't someone please think of the children? - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE

Return them? - Kirsten
I was duped by short pockets recently. I was furious when I got home. - Katy S from iPhone
Time to bring out the old fanny pack. - Eivind from Android
I found the perfect pair of shorts at Freddy's back in June and loved them so much, I went back and bought four more pairs in different colors/bedazzlements on my way home. Wasn't until I got home that I discovered the four new pairs all had faux pockets. DAMMIT. - Hookuh Tinypants

Absurd premises in movies that I've been able to accept without question:
Giant robots that transform into vehicles or household appliances. - Victor Ganata
The powers of Norse deities are really just superadvanced technology. - Victor Ganata
The only real way to combat 300 foot monsters is with 300 foot anthropomorphic robots. - Victor Ganata
The only surviving remnants of humanity live on a 1,000-car train powered by a perpetual motion engine that must continue running forever, otherwise everyone freezes to death. - Victor Ganata
Killing a specific subtype of alien species gives you the power to rewind time over and over again and this power gets rescinded if you have a blood transfusion. - Victor Ganata
that you can run along on top of a train and stand like its not moving at all and never lose your hat. - MAMA VAL#GOSCARLETTGO
A radiologist would be selected to carry out a complicated EVA involving the installation of experimental equipment. - Victor Ganata
A nuclear war is survivable by any quantity of humans. No, wait, I didn't believe that even at the time. - Big Joe Silence
That a boy can meet a girl and they can fall in love, then overcome an obstacle that drives them apart, and subsequently they live happily ever after. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
That somebody as short as Tom Cruise would be allowed to fly a jet airplane for the Navy. - Brian Johns
Brian: there are actually limits on how tall you can be to fly most military jets. The cockpits are quite cramped, so larger stature people (ahem, Rick Rossovich) are not welcome. - Bren
That a guy being held by terrorists could build a big iron suit that could fly and that whole nuke for a heart...Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts? Not so much - WarLord
Midi-chlorians. ;P - Anika
I don't remember for sure, but I'd like to hope I greeted midichlorians with a WTF expression right in the theater. I know I did for the Matrix's "they're using humans as power" line. - Andrew C (✔)

Makes me think we're not going to handle TB any better this time than we did before (as in herding people into dubiously helpful 'rest homes' unless they have the cash to avoid it.) - Jennifer Dittrich
Wow, that's not good. - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
Directly observed therapy works pretty well in keeping TB from spreading all over the place. So long as public health departments are funded well and the cops aren't busy with other things. They don't f- around. This guy has probably infected lots of people by now. And we won't know for a while because the incubation period can be very long. - Victor Ganata
Freakin' Stockton. I hope they find that guy fast. - Corinne L

It took me too long to learn that certain liquors give you the WORST hangovers and some make you feel like a bad night's sleep. #coolbeans
Biggest thing to remember in all of this is to make sure you drink a glass of water for each glass of alcohol; that makes a huge difference in how you feel later (& especially how you feel the next morning). - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Yeah, water during or right after alcohol works for me. Except tequila, tequila's a wild card lol. And then pho for breakfast. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!

Yep. Woke up at 5:30am an hour before my alarm is set because it's already too warm.
I hate that! - Katy S from iPhone
