    Man that Cruicble game sucked so hard they went backwards and put it back into closed beta.

    I played one round of it last week and the nicest thing I can say is that I can see more or less what they were aiming for.

    I have no idea how the decision was made that they were anything like close enough to it to release, but the vision is apparent at least.

    So, I know this because I know someone who's job is basically on the line based on if it succeeds, but it was always intended to be a temporary soft launch, after which they'd go back and refine it. But instead it got announced as MEGA BIG LAUNCH and everything was screwed.

    Goddamn. Jobs are the worst.

    I dunno if furriners can see it, but any U.K. folks who have two and a bit hours to spare could do much worse than see the Gwendoline Christie starring Midsummer Night’s Dream the National Theatre has put on YouTube until Thursday night. Very, very good.

    Also for my new project someone asked me to do some really trivial data manipulation so I did it for her and said hey by the way, this doesn’t require python; you can do it yourself in excel. Then I explained how in detail (including explaining...find and replace....), including that I hadn’t known how to concatenate fields from two columns so I googled it, (then explained how and also showed the link) and excel is well-documented so she should start to get comfortable using the official support articles and the user community.

    I hope it didn’t come off as rude—I tried to phrase everything like “I want you to feel empowered to do these data manipulations in excel” rather than ‘lmgtfy’. I wonder. I tried though!

    I think there's a category of person that doesn't have an intuitive grasp of the kind of tasks that spreadsheets can automate

    So sometimes a conversation like this can get people over that hump

    All these sprouts start very similarly with their two cotyledons and then in-between them their first true leaf/leaves develop and it's like they suddenly each got a personality.

    The first leaf is like a little name tag being all "actually I'm lettuce".

    Welp, cardiologist says I'm basically in perfect health. My heart is super healthy and strong, all my levels are good. I'm overweight but other than that, I'm essentially in tip top shape.

    So the culprit is anxiety and I need to find ways to chill out. Wheeee

    @SniperGuy what were your symptoms?

    @Tav weird palpitations, but no heart rate increase. It got real bad for two days but has kinda cleared up after I got checked out last week. Today was my final checkup and meeting with the cardiologist.

    I had that too! Got two cardiograms and some bloods done and nada, i'm in perfect health (apart from being a bit fat). Turns out its a n x i e t y

    i don't really have any suggestions other than getting a smartwatch that shows your heartrate because knowing it was psychosomatic really helped me

    They need to combine the peanut butter and the brownie M&M's into what should be called "My inevitable death via diabetes M&M's."

    They changed the coating on M&Ms at some point. You use to be able to just kind of hold them in your mouth, and the coating would dissolve until there was only the thinnest layer around it holding in the now-liquid chocolate melted by your body heat, then you could mash it against the roof of your mouth with your tongue. Now they just kind of turn to goo.

    A few x-rays won’t hurt you. There’s only a little radiation. Not great, not terrible.

    my son asked my wife if he could get a pet monkey. She said "Ask your father". Sure thing buddy. According to google, we can go full Joe Exotic in North Carolina. I've wanted to own a monkey since F*R*I*E*N*D*S.

    "So does she have any medical conditions related to this?" I ask.

    "They took out all of her organs and replaced them" I'm told.

    My head turns slightly to the right, scanning to see if the exit is now blocked and if this is to be the end.

    "Come again?"

    Chat, I wasn't told anything different.

    Jet Fuel June, as obsessively documented by a leftist shitposter account. Every main character of Twitter and the real world, every day, for all of June. There's also a massive document for Meltdown May I could dig up.



    At this point, this thread is legitimately a historical record
