Fixed it for you. Seriously though, carry on being a prima donna. It makes finding work that much easier for me.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
You know you've done wrong when a degenerate from Gawker shambles out of their circuit party to rationalize it.
Am I the only person to think that the woman is obviously and grotesquely altered and therefore find it far more comical than offensive? Looks like she's standing in front of a carnival mirror.
I find it hard to believe that the intent of the creator was to depict an actual, attractive female.
If I actually met such a person, the first thought through my mind would be "serious thyroid problem." And do my best to make sure they didn't tip over.
"No sir. What it proves is the existence of the sole."
No, what it proves is that while you can tune an fMRI, you can't tuna fish.
Been saying this for twenty years, ever since it was required at my high school. Best -- and possibly only useful -- thing I learned in high school, too.
Then again I learned on an Olympia SG-1. These kids have it easy. =)
"A hundred thousand years of human technology, and we're supposed to be impressed at the latest version of the club. Wake me up when the human race does something impressive."
Reminds me of the scene in 2001 when the flying bone-club segues to the orbital view.
"...it is the first serious "water world" candidate,' continued Udry."
"If you do not, then cracks will appear and bits will start to drip from it. Soon, that drip will become bigger and you will have bytes dropping out. Cheaper to replace them now, then to lose all those bytes."
Well, if the leak is small enough, investing in a bit bucket might be a viable option.
"And suddenly LOGO turns out to be the programming language we need to encode the formula for everything."
Oh crap. So it's turtles all the way down??!
Not too long ago I worked for a company that would take OEM (Gilbarco, Tokheim, etc.) gasoline pump parts (pcbs, panels, buttons, etc.) and send them to Shenzhen, China, to be ripped apart, analyzed and remade. IMO the recreated parts were better than the original.
So rather than trying to convince OEMs to modify their designs for your purposes, buy one, send it to such a company and pay FAR less while getting exactly what you need with full control over the manufacturing process.
"Me: Could you read this one paragraph (Slashdot title and summary)?
"I rest my case."
If your case relies on being too lazy to read the blurb, you deserve what you get.
Conventional wisdom states that when you're in a hole, stop digging.
"Why don't you find someone who understands English and ask them how many ways to interpret "Chimps Have a Built-In GPS" they can think of?"
OK. Did that. Here's the conversation verbatim:
Me: Could you read this one paragraph (Slashdot title and summary)?
Coworker: [reads] OK?
Me: After reading that blurb, would you say that the writers are implying that a chimp could be dropped somewhere in Michigan and know how to get to some other point?
Any other bright ideas?
"No they don't."
Thank you Captain Literal.
Do you really think anyone meant to imply primates have, in their brains, something commensurate with features found in a Garmin?
"Bullshit summary again. Or maybe bullshit article. Who cares? After a while, you don't bother."
I think we just found your problem...

"...it was routine for me to lie to customers, change prices, say we didn't have something and stare at it, laughing all the while with my manager. I didn't particularly find it funny, but I needed the money. I quit that as fast as I can like any other respectable person."
Am I going out on a limb by thinking a respectable person wouldn't have routinely lied, for money, in the first place?
