    Honestly I don't really think cops in particular should be allowed to use things like CS Gas or Tazers without a fair appreciation of what that feels like.

    That's one of the reasons why they do it.

    Every cop gets pepper sprayed. Most especially because if you ever need to use CS there's a good chance you're gonna get a bit of blowback, and be nearly as maced as whoever you were tagging.

    Unfortunately due to toxic masculinity and other factors, eventually they convince themselves it wasn't so bad and start feeling more free to use the taser for situations where it wasn't necessary.

    That's why they should also be tazed at the beginning and end of each shift.

    Here's your paycheck and your taze. Want to use the bathroom? Pepper spray air freshener.

    This feels like an express method to creating super cops who are immune to pepper spray and tazers.

    So the cleaning crew, who y'all know I got into a war of passive aggressiveness over my grease covered pizza box in the trash being recycling (it's not recycling and I finally won that battle), left a note for our lab to "brake down your boxes".

    I am struggling with my conscience in this for either being the bigger person and ignoring it or taking a red sharpie, crossing it out, writing break, and giving them a C-.

    On the one hand it's kind of a dick thing to do and really fucking condescending. On the other hand it'll feel real good for at least the rest of the day.

    Holy hell that's a lot of assumptions just because I said "cleaning crew". Why do you assume they're minimum wage and disadvantaged?

    It's a relatively affluent husband wife team that definitely aren't being paid minimum wage. They are also kind of passive aggressive douches to everyone here. For instance, taking (edit: a single) pistacho that fell onto the floor and placing it next to someone's keyboard because they didn't pick it up and throw it away. Also the pizza box thing.

    Also several other things.

    Not sure why you think "they're low skill and low paid workers."

    I'd say this is about a medium temperature Tube Hot Take, with the high end of the scale being his opinion on most Netflix shows.

    Bit too low temp for marshmallows but good for slow-cooking a nice sausage or smoking a turkey.

    I guess Zonugal might be talking about the Fore tribe in Papua New Guinea. Kuru was mostly confined to women because it was the women's job to cook and eat the deceased. Most of the people who got kuru were women and their children who were passed tidbits of the deceased. This lead to a 3:1 male:female ratio in the worst affected areas.

    After disassembling five pens and doing some very rough rate calculations, I'm finally confident enough to place a second spring order. Pray that it will be my last.

    gonna reward myself with a bubble tea.

    also my supervisor asked me a bunch of practise questions for faculty interviews and they made everything seem way too grown up and adult, I'm gonna go live in a hole for a while.

    I'm legit blanking that whole part of the process out of my mind, because I'm pretty sure giving an undergrad lecture to a bunch of professors is a guaranteed way to give the worst lecture of my life.

    Yeah I think the point of those style of group interviews is to intimidate and see how you handle the pressure and how you interact with multiple people.

    Imagine a roomful of professors playing dumb about 1st year physics in the most obnoxious ways possible in the middle of what is essentially a semi-public multi-day interview process.

    Shit is nerve-wracking. It was bad enough that the prof in charge was like 'ok guys she knows physics, stop trying to trip her up with tricky questions and let her lecture.'
