    Have much more interesting things to do.


    intentionally left blank: So why aren't these investigative guys contradicting the Party Line™ that NK did it?

    Lot of people are. Media is only interested in making sure the party line gets out. There's politics involved.

    Is it a better job or does it just pay more? $10k more to give rimjobs to homeless dudes may not be a step up.

    Before “geek”, “nerd”, “dork”, etc, the proper terms for these same ragamuffins were “Dewdroppers”, “Waldos”, and “Slackers”. Other common old slang words that were somewhat similar in meaning: pantywaist, oil can, drip, stinkeroo, mullet, roach, schnookle, kook, dimp, dorf, squid, auger, square, Joe Zilch, and dudd.

    A similar term to “geek”, in British slang, is “anorak”. This is typically used synonymously with “geek”, though it tends to imply an even greater level of awkward behavior patterns, more akin to someone who has Asperger’s Syndrome.

    Another British slang term that is somewhat similar to geek/nerd/etc is “boffin”; this is someone who is incredibly smart. Its closest American slang term equivalent is probably “egghead”.

    throwingknife: SV cook #1 was weird, but successful. I had it set for 131 but my Thermapen said it was at 150-160. That was the weird. I think it just wasn't settled? The small hunk of beef was fine, though. I'm starting on Friday's dinner. I just did some carrots, put them into the fridge, and plan to finish them tomorrow by browning a bit in butter. My Thermapen was agreeing with its temperature. I just started a bigger hunk of sirloin rib tip roast.

    Did you buy or build? Maybe the liquid wasn't circulating?

    "ESTP

    ESTPs are like ISTPs in that they sometimes turn into wailing mockeries of adult people. But ESTPs do not do it because the screams echo in the hollowness of their soul and they can pretend that the abyss is responding to them, no – the ESTPs do it because they think it’s fun. It’s what they live for. They’ll carry a gun into a bank just because it’s fun to scare the poor innocents, they’ll stand by the roadside and flash motorcyclists so they can watch them crash, nothing is out of limits for an ESTP.

    They are usually dumb as rocks. Which is good, because the ESTPs with brains are really fucking scary. The ESTP animal is the raccoon. Which may seem cute or fun to you unless you’ve met one."

    Ok so dumbass decided the mandatory in mandatory store meeting didn't apply to him. And he had no problem letting everyone know before hand, including our new Co manager. Old Co manager who would never write up someone is gone.

    Now in the meeting my manager has a real passive way of telling someone they are doing something wrong without directly addressing them. By saying to everyone at the meeting that x is being done and not to do x.

    Well every thing she said was directed at dumbass. And she listed off about a dozen things. The most ever in of these announcements. She also stated no more warnings, write ups will happen and people will be sent home.

    Dumbass thinks he is immune to all this because the only management he sees was old Co manager who let's you get away with murder.

    Well she is gone. And has been replaced. And this morning dumbass gets to work with the manager who is out to bust his balls.

    Bought. Anova culinary just came out with a new model that finally shipped. Subsequent cooks have been fine, so I suspect some kind of weird circulation anomaly. I'll confess I'm a bit worried about my Thermapen. I got another crazy reading from it last night. Mrs. Knife said "Oh I spilled water on it earlier, and it started acting funny. Maybe it'll be OK after it dries out." (facepalm) It seems OK this morning. I need to check it against ice water and boiling water.

    Yeah. It is a very cool feeling. My younger brother died about 6 years ago. My Dad grew up in a really abusive house. It has been painful to watch him grow up. I have somewhat forced him to be more emotional and expressive. We are getting there. He is a cool guy and we are learning from one another still. I wish that I had the tools that I have now to relate to him when I was 16. He has great stories and great wisdom.
