Today at a certain small company...

Today at a certain small company, the Head of Projects called the Deputy Head of Software Development "doo-doo".  (No, I'm not employing a euphemism, he really did say "doo-doo".  During a meeting.  With quite a number of others in attendance.)  This may become serious, at some point they may not share their toys, and terms like "cootie" or "booger-head" may follow!

Really, you can't make this doo-doo up.

I expect them to follow up with "takes one to know one", and "I'm telling!".

No, no, NO, you did NOT "read" an audio book!  
You were told a story.  Reading is a whole different thing.

Have you noticed that the people who are most convinced that contrails are an evil plot just happen to be the people with the least knowledge of weather? 

It's almost like there's a connection there.  
Yeah, almost .

At some point in the past, some moron decided to base percentages on 100 instead of 1000, despite the fact that we group our numbers based on 1000.  So now when I see that a certain vitamin has 50,000% of the RDA, I have to mentally drop two zeros, and that's a pain.

We should all go take a dump on that person's grave.  

(Yeah, I know it's a holdover from ancient Rome, and it's highly unlikely that we'd be able to find that grave.  Also, "per cent" actually means "per 100".  I don't care.  It's inconvenient to me, so that long-dead person must suffer.)

To get away from the heat, we plan to move up north.  
To the area that is currently 109F.

Oh crap.

+Denise Baxter Yoder Not for me.  Between school and a project, time is flying by.

import webbrowser
webbrowser.open('https://xkcd.com/353/')
print 'Ta daaaaa!"

And that's why I do damn near everything in Python, now.
[[ Guy 1 is talking to Guy 2, who is floating in the sky ]] Guy 1: You're flying! How? Guy 2: Python! Guy 2: I learned it last night! Everything is so simple! Guy 2: Hello world is just 'print "Hello, World!" ' Guy 1: I dunno... Dynamic typing? Whitespace? Guy 2: Come join us!

Watched "Inside Out" last night, and this morning I watched "Ex Machina".

It's an AI weekend.  
(You may have to think about that.  It's okay, I'll wait.)

I'd say that Archer and ice cream are my guilty pleasures.

But I don't feel guilty.

+Rennie Allen Nope, you only showed the one page of the site, so I refuse to believe they make anything else!

Gee, we have marriage equality now, and the world didn't stop, the oceans didn't boil, and everything is pretty much the same.  Who knew?

Oh yeah, EVERYBODY SANE.  That's who knew!

I've spent so much of my life taking classes, and never studying for those classes until it's panic time, that now I'm damn near incapable of studying unless I'm in a panic.  Considering that I have a final tomorrow, I expect that to happen in the next few hours.

I hope.
