    This is becoming a thing, isn't it? ref's gonna skin you alive.

I'll be honest, I had no clue that GROK was a scifi reference.

It entered my lexicon thanks to P.J. and SCO.

I humbly request that you make your next painting one of Fuzzball and Lantern...

... the crime fighting duo.

My new campaign at work is an unfortunate one, because it involves filling out grievance forms instead of being sassy.

The sassy route is less official, but has the distinct advantage of not having to write through three fucking layers of transfer paper.

- Union Copy

- Company Copy

- Steward Copy

- Member Copy

Full on, regular weight too. None of that easy to use thin shit.

My hand hurts.


My ISP got gobbled up into a larger affair. This is the first day of service under the care of the new regime.

Not a graceful start so far. I'd happily pay a premium for municipal run bandwidth toobs.

This is the second attempt to post this. Shoddy service consumed the first one in a conflagration of doing the bare minimum somewhere in Mn.

Oh, FUCK. They're 49% owned by Comcast.

EDIT: I'd say were are zeroing in on service up-time. Oscillating around it, if you will.

I'm reading of a library book right now, so highlighting is kind of out, but I bet I could get a similar effect with little sticky notes in the margins!

I know I bitch about work a lot on here. Especially on #pubski.

But this subject, health insurance? It is why I'll put up with anything that happens at work. And I pretty much mean anything. I've got multiple friends who have left work via an ambulance trip.

Because my healthcare? It is basically free. I mean... it is not, but when I start to compare it the norm, it might as well be.

I have a $10 co-pay to go to the eye doctor.

I pay nothing to go to the dentist.

I have a $1000/year coinsurance for hospitalization, but that's as barbaric as it gets. Based on the coinsurance I've paid before, I'm pretty sure it accrues at 10% of the cost incurred by the plan.

No premiums.

I know three people getting cancer treatment on our plan right now. I've talked to two of them recently regarding how much the plan has paid out. One is a few months in, and already has $300,000 paid out in their name.

The other is a year in, and is setting north of the $1,000,000 mark.

I don't even want to know how much the guy who's 5 years into his battle has racked up.

My family doesn't understand why I work the job that I do.

I don't understand why everyone that doesn't isn't rioting in the streets.

I really don't.


The most enjoyable games I've played recently are : Firewatch, Dropsy, and A Bird Story.

All are short, story driven, and don't have much replay value. I could understand wanting to play them this way.

That said

I'm glad I own A Bird Story, Dropsy and Firewatch. The last two have amazing soundtracks.

But I may just not be hip enough to be comfy with streaming media that seems important to me. I do keep full local copies of podcasts that I enjoy.

But all this is kind of moot

Because I'm typing on a Linux machine, and I see no mention of what platforms are supported so I assumed this was Windows only.

Good luck!

Apologies for the lazy attempt at some rhymes

Now I see they be wasting your... time.

Shit. I still suck at rhyming.

    Don't start with Kant? Even the original German is supposedly incomprehensible.

It is the arbitrary point where I've decided to stop falling backwards through a trail of connected works, though. I got here because it seemed reasonable to backtrack to Hegel & Adam Smith from Marx, and then from there I figured Hegel was closely enough related to Kant to step back again. I figure if I can't make sense of it, I'm only out time.

Really, though, what I'm interested in is how people are organizing their learning. :)

That's a subject I've always found fascinating, probably because I'm so bad at doing it myself.

Instead of Poncho I grabbed the Metro Redux bundle

Potato bread is the only kind of supermarket-shelf-stable-bread that I really like. I never even thought about trying to make potato bread, though.

So far all I've done on the Steam summer sale is gift a copy of I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream.

I'm eyeing Poncho for myself.
