  1. I wonder how I would fare running for office on an open platform of "I don't want this gorram job, but since none of you are gonna do it right..."

      • @mrmattimation Hey at least your co-workers at least got annoyed by that alarm I reckon.

        Mine called me up on a Sunday afternoon because they could not find the thermostat. Then even with my directions they could not find the damned device. So I went there just to show them where the thermostat was. They all thought it was an alarm so they did not wanted to touch it, and then I got into trouble for showing up at work smelling and looking like a drunk hobo.

        It's Sunday woman ! Get off of my back, I am not even supposed to be here !

        But at least those will be the fun stories to tell around the campfire.

    • Sometimes, when I get a Twitter follower, and I check their profile, I just know they are about to regret their decision. Catholic Mom, white lady boomer, you are about to get TrIgGeReD.

    • Having one of the people at work scream at you at the top of their lungs that "The Mandalorian should have been a woman !!!" before I even had time to sit down, get myself a drink, and press the on button of my terminal.

      I am very glad that the rest of the day went a lot smoother.

    • They took down Simpsons World, and like, sure, getting The Simpsons ad-free on Disney+ is cool and all, but they don’t have the dvd commentary tracks on Disney+ and that was 90% of what I used Simpsons World for.

            • The plan is to eventually have every possible recurring setpiece modeled in a 3D space using shaders that flatten it out as much as possible and textures that make it look like an oil painting so that I never ever ever ever have to draw another background for the rest of my life.

                  • @mrmattimation Smuggler ? Wait, what. That took a turn.

                    "Yeah, ehmm, Mr Ranger Solo sir, Could you please get this package of legal computer components to my friend in California ? Why no, I do not object to haveing it being transported in between the cocaine and MDMA."

                    P.S. I do not know any Chinese Smuggler names, I do know that the Solo Star Wars Movie was renamed to Ranger Solo in China.

                  • @scribus Isn't that just a fancy way of saying 'odd things that are related to the topic'. Such as pretty much everything used to make fun of the situation in every abridged show ever.

                    For some reason I have to think of this thing

                    http://rainbowdash.net/url/875304

                    "The Gods are showing us the truth about our past, I give you our sexy ancient Egyptian ancestors"

                    You know the rest.

                    I love oddical topicness, or oddness topical... or... well now both words and all variations thereof just sound made up to me.

                  • @drinkingpony I had meant less "odd things" and more "things which are relevant, but to an unexpected degree." Which probably has a 90% overlap, anyway.

                • I just had the new She-Ra explained to me by a die-hard fan of the old series

                  Essentially she thinks it is like taking a beloved franchise that she feels she has supported thoughout the years, by buying merch and all. Someone got their hands on that IP because essentially you can not 'make' a new IP work in the modern oversaturated world. Then added so many new borderline cringe modern 'themes' to it till it pretty much only resembled the beloved She-Ra only in name. I mean For Fox's Sake (I choose to believe she actually said 'For Fox's Sake') they put a first draft D&D character into the show for crying out loud.

                  Imagine your grandmother learned you how to make granny's apple pie, and then 20 years later she asks you to make her some apple pie just like how she used to like it. Only to have a conversation not even 5 seconds after gramma tasting it about "WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU TOOK OUT THE ASBESTOS ?!?"

                  Strange woman, but made some sense.

                  I only know 1 person who likes new She-Ra.
