    Is there a reason why Window's system windows are still 1) Tiny, 2) not resizable, and 3) modal?

    I feel like they haven't updated it since like XP.

    Move to New Zealand
    It’s not a very important country most of the time

    They have been in a fight over replacing them for a bit now heh. There are some more screens in 10 that are non old school modal. And I think they are slowly finally changing them all. There are several factors other than people yelling about change that delay this. Mainly enterprise level things.

    a kid just tried to turn in a cord to me for an ipad that was like degloved. It was missing multiple inches of plastic on both ends, just massive exposed wires.

    Kid tries to tell me that we gave it to him that way. First off, no, we didn't. Second, we told kids repeatedly at the beginning they had like two weeks to come tell us about damage or else they'd be responsible for it.

    I was driving behind a truck with some really cool art on the back of a cyclopean being named Erasmo. I would have taken a picture but, well, I was driving. Still I feel I missed an opportunity there.

    Stand on the fucking escalator like it was designed, and stop fucking it up for everyone. If you are in such a fucking hurry, leave earlier.

    The whole standing/walking thing on escalators and moving walk ways cracks me up a bit. Like, legs still work just fine on them. Exceptions to be made if ya got luggage or whatever of course.

    how does it feel to be the wrongest person there has ever existed?

    I'm pretty sure people have done multiple tests, and doing everyone stands makes it faster for everyone as a whole, even if the people who would normally walk up end up taking slightly longer.

    Escalators are scary enough. I mean, I can do it, but I am also usually not in a hurry or need to conserve my energy for the mile walk between concourses.

    I just had a toddler drop a glass of water straight on my pants. No I have to walk around near the white house looking like I pissed myself.

    Hopefully the preacher saying everyone is going to hell and the guy shouting at the preacher about how he is the real satan will distract everyone.

    To me the standing and walking on escalators falls in the same area as my commute with the way people pass and speed on the mountain pass.

    Given the length of the commute you are saving, at best 5 minutes or so and burning 30% more fuel drivng at well over 3.5k rpms.

    There is just not enough gains for it.

    The hell? StarCraft 2 is more challenging than WarCraft 3.

    it feels more straightforward to me. the items and heroes add so many layers.

    I will retract that in favor of OW I suppose. But I meant by story (OW is severly lacking here), consistency and stabability. They killed HOTS for overwatch so im still salty.
