RE: Ranting corner
Fantucking fastic.

I've lost the screw which was barely holding one of my lenses into the ol' frames. I say 'barely' because the lens doesn't even fit the frame now anyway but it mostly stayed in where I needed it.
But now... I'm going to have to go around half blind tomorrow until I can get to my optometrist's local outlet and hope they will be so kind as to help me out.

Actually, come to think of it, this might actually be the perfect opportunity for me; might be able to register for a checkup there and hopefully get new, less bulky lenses is possible.

Side-note: has anybody here stopped and taken appreciation for the effort it takes to keep one eye closed for extended periods?

Yeah. I took part in full contact fights as a kid and often had an eye closed over. But that was from training. The eye was just closed though. i did not have to close it. My partner did that for me. Smile

Paperclip? You can stick a lot of things together with a paperclip. Paper, for one...

If I had one, I might try it...

Sadcryface thanks EK. Beating it with a knife plus kitchen gloves finally worked.

Guess who's eating okra, now? THIS GIRL!


Why the fuck do they make jars so fucking hard to open?! Who the fuck eats pickled okra other than chicks and old people with old people arthritic hands?!

I don't know why I'm so fucking mad at this okra jar, but I do at least realize it's not rational. Fucker. Censored

From Uncle Chas's Helpful Household Hints:

Hold the jar firmly in one hand, then smack the bottom of the jar smartly with the other.
You will actually hear the seal break. The jar will open easily.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

The bolded part is my question. The qualifiers are irrelevant.

Aaaaand something in my laptop has decided that I'm not allowed to play games anymore. Think it's either one of the RAM blocks or the graphics card. With my luck it's the later.

RE: Ranting corner
I've been feeling off for a little while now; it's a around the time for me to usually get a nice ol' flu, so that's what I figured I had.
But it was only a weak feeling of discomfort in the back of my throat for a few days and it calmed down.

Wake up this morning: "Heeey motherfucker! Remember me? 'Cause I've made billions of little copies! Hope you like coughing and being exiled to your room!"

On the bright side, this gets me out of having to give a speech today.

Lol, you reminded me of a meme that has been dead for a loooong time








Frankly I think I know why it's dead.
