*begin rant*

What's been killing me lately is the California legislature! Pass a fucking budget! That's your only job, what we pay you to do. Why are you allowed to leave the building? Why are you allowed to go on vacation? Why are you allowed to live?! :fuming:

I am so angry with my state. We're billions in debt, yet keep issuing more bonds and borrowing money, just digging us deepering into a hole. At the bare minimum the government should pay for defense/security, infrastructure, and education. Why do we continually cut education to save programs that are not the government's responsibility? Of course education takes up 40% of our budget! Its supposed to!

No one in our government can make any difficult decisions. I'm sorry but we need to make cuts and raise taxes. Those are (like it or not) the only way we are going to pull out of this slump. But everyone is so concerned with being re-elected that they won't just man up and fucking do something!

*end rant*

I like those commercials with Arnold and Maria drinking cocktails and skiing and shit, though.

Welcome! I am amazed that California is doing so poorly with finances when it is the home of one of the major cities in the world (L.A., of course) and is the home to a kazillion kazillionaires.

I just received my annual performance review. My boss thinks more of me than I do. WTF? Am I really that good? Shit, that's without even trying.

When a vegetarian asks what you'd like for dinner, the proper response is NOT "vegetables". :orly: Ya think?

Goddamit G11-1050 shouldn't be so hard to find. It's the ONLY vertical uplink on the G11 satellite and should stick out like a sore thumb, but it's still swamped by all the other channels. It's not enough to point at the right SATELLITE, oh no. We have to point at the right PLACE on the right satellite(using only our opposable thumbs; the big G's dishes don't have fine-tuning adjustments anymore. Funny, the old dishes used cheap mounts made from bent sheet metal that were strong and worked great. These new ones are expensive, heavy monstrosities cast from aluminum, with a tendency to crack -- that being why we have to find this satellite again -- and NO FINE ADJUSTMENTS whatsoever.) or it'll just give us "locked to the wrong network" with no indication it's even anywhere NEAR the right one. Which makes the process entirely guesswork and luck.

And I can add one more ex-employee to the asshole list. I'd given him the benefit of the doubt for years despite how he treated me like shit since everyone liked him, but now he's gone and set up a wireless system in direct competition with ours. Wait no, I lied, he didn't do it, he just got a major competitor to do it so they could contract him to do house installs in areas no sane person would dream of going alone. Why does he want to install again? We were doing that, and he left that to sell cars! (A job quite suited to a man of his character). We might've given him a cut of the service charges after, but he'll never get anything but one-time costs from that company.

So this is just another get-rich-quick scheme of his. But a get-rich scheme that plants a fucking 500-foot tower smack in four of our existing service areas. Great plan, dumbass -- selling highspeed internet to people that already have it, in impoverished postage-stamp areas that can't possibly bear two providers! Not to mention your new company's shitty business practices of assraping people with service overcharges should they accidentally go a little bit over their bandwidth limits. Oh, sorry, I should phrase it in terms you'll appreciate. You can't gouge people once you've ruined them, there's no more left to take.

All right. I bought an auger or something (big bendy tool) and unplugged the toilette. When I showed the guy at the hardware store what I'd already poured down the drain (some kind of Virgin Sulphuric Acid), he went pale and said , "O, yeah. Something's down there if that didn't do it."

I still do not know what it was, as it got forced through. I suppose it's down to waiting until we notice something missing....It best not have been a Bionicle, I tell you what!

How many times do I have to say this? Fellow drivers, put the fucking cellphones down and pay the fuck attention to what the fuck you're supposed to be doing. A cellphone stuck in your ear is no excuse for driving 30 mph and straddling two lanes on a 45 mph four lane divided highway. A cellphone plastered to the side of your head is not a good reason for not going at a stop sign when nobody is coming, which is a rare event at this particular intersection. Jesus fuck, people. Oh, and what is it with old white-haired fuckers and driving 15-20 mph below the speed limit meandering from off the road on the side to halfway into the oncoming lane? If I get old and drive like that, somebody please shoot me.

What??? Pouring sulfuric acid down your toilet? Is that a standard unclogging technique? I don't think I've heard of people doing that. What are your pipes made out of? I would be seriously worried about the acid eating away at them and causing leaks.

Within the past month, I've ripped big holes in the butts of my two favorite pairs of jeans.

I don't know how the first one happened, but I did the second last night as I was squeezing in between some stored furniture to pet Battle Cat. She's still a little nervous with the new dog, so she's hanging out in the basement and we go down to feed, water, and play with her.

Anyway, I REALLY don't want to have to buy new jeans again, but the ones I have left are all baggy and stuff because I always buy my clothes too big.

And I'm probably going to do that again, so if I do go out and get new jeans, they'll just be too big, too.

I'm not going to do it. I'm not. It's stupid and I don't want to.

I actually used to mend my jeans when they got holes in them, but I haven't done it in a while. I may just try that again, though.

Problem is those two pair were my Sunday go to meeting dungarees. Once they start getting ass holes (hah!), they're a little less respectable even once they're mended. So no matter what I do, I'll still need to replace them at some point.

Thank you. I was just so mad it never even crossed my mind to try to repair them.

It's obviously a Ponzi scheme, you idiot. Even if you manage to make money off of it, you'll be fucking over anyone you recruit.

Virgin sulfuric acid.

Yes, it works quite well...usually. My pipes are a combo of PVC piping and cast iron. The sulfuric acid comes in a bottle made of plastic similar to PVC, and it is used to clean ferrous items in plating factories....neither will be adversely affected.

The city sewerage folks aren't too happy with it, though...but that's just because they have a shitty system that overflows raw sewage into the river which runs through the center of the city.....an open sewer on rainy days. Hell, the sulfuric acid might help break down some of the organic materials.

How about several? Inadequate. Overburdened. Outdated. Embarrassing.
