@Ee Gads Yeah, half of them would have the word "Screenshot" and then a string of numbers.
@NeenerNeener And *that* is an acronym I also learned from said younger brother!
(Determine the relationship, quoth brotherstonefruit.)
@NeenerNeener As a treat for special dinners, my granny used to make her kids veggies marinated in Italian dressing (veggies lined in a pyrex pan, overlaid with dressing, put in fridge for a day). It's delightful.
@laurel It's a shame @NeenerNeener's coworkers aren't as courteous as @parallel-lines.
@NeenerNeener It doesn't count if I avoid eye contact!
I waited to fart until I got out of the elevator.
@NeenerNeener Before refrigeration I guess stuff got moldy, fermented, and aged pretty easily. So if your choice is to eat the moldy thing or starve, I guess you're going to eat the moldy thing.
I have always been astonished at the blowfish thing.
@Es YOU GUYS. We're using a series of interconnected computation engines, to communicate at near-light-speed with strangers thousands of miles away. Discussing SHOOTING OURSELVES WITH LASERS.
@NeenerNeener True! For the most part, I generally just don't wear undies when I'm wearing a garter belt. (TMI? NEVER!)
Oh jesus love languages. Every time I ever see people citing that book in romancey advice columns it is to explain that some people show love by being considerate and affectionate, whereas other people show love by ignoring you and being an asshole and sometimes buying you stuff, and you just have to understand that they're speaking their own love language, man. The fact that it's generally men who are described as speaking the "love language" of neglect and torpor is just an extra bonus.
like it is getting to the point where people who talk about their own love languages strike me as on a level with people who talk about how their brains are "wired."
I mean what about work languages, huh? So some of my co-workers show that they value their jobs by "working hard" and "showing up on time" whereas I express my devotion to the job by reading the Internet all day. IT'S JUST MY LANGUAGE THAT'S ALL and only the harshest people would put some kind of value judgment on it.
