    • Which I think in a way contributed to my confusion. The only person I knew personally who used the pan sexual term just used it interchangeably anyway.

      • Time for me to be a big boy and come out and admit that I don’t know the difference between bisexuals and pansexuals. I have heard each definition. My brain can not comprehend a difference.

        • @mrmattimation @scribus I think ultimately it's a semantic difference more than anything. some people interpret "bi" as a term that excludes enby/intersex folks but this is obviously not necessarily true - for some people it might just be more convenient as it's pretty widely understood, or it might just sound better to them. "pan" is a more recent prefix to sound more all-encompassing, but this will inevitably be subject to confusion and the same joke over and over. i don't think either term is inherently exclusionary (although i do think most terms for sexuality are clunky and outdated at this point) and it kind of just comes down to what word you prefer the sound/feel of and how you want to present yourself

        • @tiff I guess this makes sense. My pan/bi ex used them interchangeably because, in her own words, “bi” was easier for people to understand in casual conversation and “pan” was technically more correct, though she didn’t mind being called either.

        • Using Hillary Rodham Clinton’s full name disparagingly always felt super goofy to me. They didn’t call her that when she was a Senator, or even the First Lady, right? So it feels like a successor to using Obama’s middle name disparagingly, but it just doesn’t work because there wasn’t a terrorist with the name “Rodham”.

          • We just got Coca Cola’s new energy drink in the store, I went ahead and took some before they hit the shelves to try it out. It’s pretty impressive in that it just tastes like Coke. So why’s everything else taste like it’s got gasoline in it?

              • I’ve been playing Red Dead Redemption 2 for months and I never tried the online mode. A friend got the game last week so I booted it up today. Was way more fun than I thought it would be. We ended up playing for three hours, accomplishing absolutely nothing but still having a blast.

                • I wrote up an employee last night without giving my boss a heads up first, which I’m normally super hesitant to do. The guy’s a total prick and he’s been nasty to me and several customers for weeks now and I got sick of it, so I filled out the form. I came in today to learn, of course, that my boss threw it away.... because mine actually wasn’t harsh enough. He wrote his own that was waaaay more detailed.

                • I used to be a very angry kid. I’m still angry now, but it’s evolved into petty passive-aggressiveness. Part of that is that I don’t like confrontation anymore. The other part of it is that, as an adult in retail management, I can express myself with official documents so that everyone in the company knows what a prick you are. A lot more satisfying than hitting people, IMO

                    • Good news: between the altercation last night and the official report being written up today, the lady dropped her bogus assault accusation. Bad news: the remaining stuff is really difficult to disprove because none of these cameras have microphones so it really comes down to my word versus hers.

                      • @scribus At the risk of sounding like a pompous, arrogant prick: I’m one of the most valuable employees here and everyone knows it. The store management team likes me. They all said they’d back me up to the best of their abilities. I’m not worried about them. The district manager has a habit of making problems “disappear”.

                      • @mrmattimation potentially EVEN CHEAPER, lazier, and faster than the actual OG Squigglevision was - this is one single drawing, modified by a random seed in Adobe After Effects, which can be saved into a preset and applied to virtually any animation footage of any frame rate at any screen resolution with a single click - boil rate and intensity can be easily modified with a few clicks too. It’s like an instagram filter or something like that.
