Frivilous lawsuits.

I'm just going to guess nearly every stupid suit happened because of a real life Slipping Jimmy..  I know I sure wouldn't have ever thought to sue for, say, eating something I'm allergic to like dairy or scallops.  But now all you see is food allergy arse covering like signs almost begging the customer to inform them beforehand..

The news.  All of it.

Feels less like reporting, and more like a wrestling show working the fans..

When customers demand immediate escalation, take up 4-7 hours of your time for a problem you know is with their network and not your products, and you can't just say "dude, fix your network then call back".

When you sneeze so hard that your whole upper body hurts.

When you sneeze, and spray a bunch of mucas all over the place.  (Hard yardwork during certain weather usually does that)

My current obsession with Dragon's Dogma reminded me of something:

Most rpg fans miss the point of playing an rpg.  It's all about endgame builds for those types, so they'll promote these strategies that makes playing a major chore/drag for 99% of the experience.

As if levels 1-199 or whatever are just a means to an end, instead of the meat and potatoes of actually enjoying the game (On that note, if you ever game with such people they literally run from point to point like it's their job.  Never stops to enjoy the scenery, or relish a mob encounter just because.  Never picks a "Because it's fun" class without a good end point either.  Can't imagine how someone enjoys playing that way..)

The goddamned excuse, "I just got out of a relationship, I'm trying to find myself".


I've gotten that at least three times in the last few weeks. And one of them said yes to a date then gave that stupid ass excuse. I don't buy it one it, i think it's the biggest bunch of crap i ever heard

Hey man, that's what I'm going through right now. I started hanging out with a girl I've known for a few years (as friends) right around the time my relationship started falling apart. It wasn't even a messy breakup, it was just hard because I fell in love with this girl and I knew that she was into me, but her excuse for breaking up was that she wants to go traveling in the fall and she didn't want a boyfriend because she thought I would interfere with her plans. So whatever, we're still on good terms and we still hang out.

But I'm also still in love with her, which makes dating the new girl a challenge. I even told her that despite the fact that I like her, I'm attracted to her and I'm open to dating her, that right now just isn't the best time to get serious.

It is possible to be into somebody but still keep them at a distance. Either to protect oneself, or in my case, to protect the new girl because I know that if we get close I will likely end up hurting her.

To top it all off, the ex and I are going on a 5-day hiking/camping trip next week through the mountains. Just the two of us, sharing a tiny tent alone on the trail with no cell service or other people to talk to. We had planned the trip months ago when we were still together, and neither of us wanted to back out. It should be interesting. It could either be the most amazing camping trip ever, or it could be the most awkward and awful 5 days of my life.

When did everything get expensive on Amazon? 

I was looking to buy Book of the New Sun, thought the offering were a bit steep, and on impulse decided to look up Courtship of Princess Leia and other old books.  Every single one is close to 10 dollars, and that's not including shipping.

For old books!  I used to buy boxes of 50 books for 10 dollars or less (Ebay, not Amazon,  but they're essentially the same resellers...)

Getting caught between work and family.

Especially hard at places that demand all your free time notices is given in advance at the start of the year (Those of you with kids know how you're lucky to get even a weeks notice on certain things..)

I don't like finding out I didn't win Powerball from a Breaking News headline that the winning ticket was sold somewhere I'm not.

So one thing I don't get about how things are generally done in business.

Lets use streaming as an example.  On one hand, you've got the pirate stream alternatives that offer a wide range of hd content for free, and make their owners rich through ads.

On the other hand, you've got legit services that have a userbase outpaced by infrastructure leading to connectivity issues, limited content, and high prices, and low consumer satisfsaction.

Night and day models, I'm not trying to compare them.

What I'm wondering, is where's the legit pay services focusing on consumer satisfaction?  I'm just not seeing them.

If users are complaining about AT&T or Verizon issues, and say "If only the service was better", and the only options are equally bad from a consumer standpoint, what stops some smart up and comer from giving them what they want (On the assumption many want to pay for their content, rather then steal it, or they wouldn't be sticking with sub par service) with a competing service?

And before someone beats me over the head with Netflix:

This is one of the "growth outpaces function" examples I'm talking about.

All the services I've tried seem to have issues, and it seems like not investing heavily enough in their networks is to blame.  They just shovel people in on the same setup, like overburdoned state roads, until cracks start to show..

There's no way to directly transfer itunes podcasts from an i-device to non apple devices without using a pc as an intermediary, is there.

Why do people even buy these Apple things..?  Or make their podcasts strictly available through Itunes? 

Want to make sure no non I-thing user hears your podcast?  Use Itunes.

The way every state has to copy off California or New York when they make their laws..

Like no fault divorce.  Cali did it, and it suddenly spread to other states..  Or the hippie movement spreading out from there.

If I wanted to live in California, I'd move to California..
