"You're smelling it wrong"...
For chrissake, talk about waking a sleeping bear...
You might have been out for a Score 5 Funny, but you also delivered a plausible explanation for the abysmal parking performance of the guy I saw earlier today.
[...] as a result hip replacements just got a lot more expensive.
But but but... Think of the hipsters!!!
The "you can't do that because we don't have the budget for maintenance" is just a lame excuse for two situations, either you just don't have the budget to do it or your manager is scared that you will break something. In all cases it is just a failure to communicate properly, which is especially lame when prefixed with "I would like to let you do this, but..."
I work on FDA-relevant software for production lines; any change brings a whole series of extra work with it. Some changes require the production line in question to be taken offline for one or multiple days so that proper testing can be done, QA can have their word, an official validation can be performed, a maintenance crew can check whether hardware and software still work together as expected and so on. While not rocket-science and certainly feasible, cleaning up code in absence of problems/bugs is usually frowned upon when production lines are supposed to be active 24/7 and maintenance windows are rare. The cost of maintenance is not only that of the developer/engineer writing the code. Factor in man-hours from other departments like documentation, validation, proper testing, and - most of all - the cost of taking a productive equipment offline for some serious time, and you might see that "we don't have the budget for maintenance" is not alway a lame excuse.

To protect against the above, try running your network cables separate from the sewer plumbing.
Thanks for this information! I occasionally order stuff for various family members; for the past months a certain number of women's sandals and phone covers in primary colors kept showing up in my recommendations. You helped me get rid of them.
They probably saw it. And laughed all the way to the bank.
By the way, the best way to keep your data private is to keep it out of your untrusted phone/computer/whatnot, and use bogus data when you need to enter something.
Exemples: use "Acme inc." as your home phone number's name in your addressbook, and nicknames for your contacts. Don't enter your full address as your home in your satnav's app but someone's address in a street close-by, etc.
Unfortunately, that won't help. Your phone number(s) and your home address are already on many of your friend's devices under your real name. Apple, Google & Co already have your details, whether you use their service or not. It should be easy for them to filter out bogus data and associate your number with your real name.

I hate that I can't build a string by doing "Foo" + i (where i is an integer) [...]
Try the following:
"Foo %s" % i
I thought there was a certain discrepancy between their middle school talk about manhood and their using the Goatse guy symbol in the green infochart (bottom right, above the "male nude selfies")...
Reminds me of a good friend of mine who after an evening spent binge drinking got on his bicycle, put both feet on the pedals (without pedaling) and tried to turn the grip on the right handlebar, thinking he was on a motorbike. At that point gravity took over and ended the show.
