Thread: What made you go WTF today?

  1. #3991
    By 11:40am this morning my coworkers and I managed to order 7 slices of free cheesecake to celebrate the cheesecake factory's 40th birthday. Its 1:30pm and only 2 orders have been delivered. 7 orders all placed within 10 minutes, and they used 7 different door dash delivery drivers.

    The gig economy has a long way to go still.


    and of course, the police have been roped into it.

    Said one caller on Sekulow’s radio program, “This is toxic ideology. This goes beyond just bad education. This could be corrupting our children’s eternal souls. I have two small children, and I don’t want them sitting around just thinking about creation and goodness and peace. I mean, if my two angels, who are innocent, are gonna be learning about explorers, they should be learning about Jesus or Trump.”

And now we have to use it.

    And that's Why I'm Voting Leave.

    Subthread: Things I don't understand.

    Why would thousands of people want to be in NYC Times Square on New Year's Eve? Why would they plan time off work, make plane and hotel reservations months in advance, to stand in (usually) bad weather, with the heightened security measures that mean they can't even carry a flask of gin? I don't get it.

    I got one at my last job, not a happy training no. But 1/3 of active shooter situations are work related and 1/3 education, and I worked on a university campus where you have both. Glad to say I never needed that training (or the fire fighting and first aid for that matter).
    Keep on keepin' the beat alive!

    I had dinner the other night with a very pleasant couple, one of whom was a relatively minor ex-official of the State Department. Only after they left did I learn that as part of this job, they were the stars of a reality TV show about their lives that actually got substantial viewership in the country they were working in.

    Diplomacy is super weird.

    Genie let out of the bottle, it is now the witching hour
    Murderers, you're murderers, we are not the same as you
    When the walls bend with your breathing
    They will suck you down to the other side, with the shadows blue and red
    Your alarm bells; they should be ringing
    This is the gloaming
