    My bedside lamp melted today. Apparently I had a 70 W bulb in it, when it was only designed to support up to 40 W.............and also I tried to use a hat as a lampshade.................which I guess you're not supposed to do.

    The point is, this is a problem that I did not know could happen to me, and now it's happened, and my room and entire apartment unit smells like burnt plastic. It's so bad. I've had every window open for two hours now and the smell's not better yet. Where am I supposed to sleep...................

    Someone years back started sporking a really bad hentai manga, and stopped in the middle just when it was getting to reveals of an alluded-to "horrifying backstory". I'm really, really curious as to what the fuck it was, but I really don't want to look up uncensored originals of it.

    My friend asked me to do a 7hr drive (3-3.5 hrs each way) so they can be with their husband for xmas but my mom doesnt want me to because it would be:
    • dangerous bc of weather/roads
    • right after my 7-8hr shift meaning id be tired, even tho my friend says they can do the drive back
    • risky bc i dont have out of province insurance
    I told my friend i could do it and then had to take that back after my mom pointed out it wasnt a good idea for me to do it

    Everyone referencing Simba at the line "Remember who you are" in the Friendsim and no one else referencing "remember what you did to Marni".

    The apparent attitude on twitter that following someone = supporting and approving of them

    like "Person A still follows Person B, even after finding out what B did, ugh"

    Or "if any of my mutuals still follow person X im blocking you"

    (Edit: or "oh no i didnt know, i followed them for so long but im unfollowing now" like ok?? does having followers automatically mean you get like power on twitter? What are you apologizing for? were you paying this person or promoting their shit?)


    I know a local news organization follows shittons of people including trump and every major party leader for our province

    Because...they want to keep an eye on them

    Not because this newsroom supports trump

    Has the concept of hatereading or hate following just left their minds

    Twitter is treated like a primary-school level popularity contest, you must have x-many followers to sit with the cool kids at their table

    Twitter does show your followers occasional popular posts from people you follow. I have been pretty lucky with the algorithm involved and it is one of the ways I find new people to follow. I could see it showing people content from shitty person x tho I suspect this is not the primary reason why people are being salty about folks continuing to follow Bad People(tm).

    My coworker often audibly tries to like clear mucous from her throat and it's gross

    i understand nobody likes the feeling of mucous doing the thing but i really dont want to be able to hear you doing that from like five feet away

    eta: she leaves in 10 minutes thankfully

    shes nice and a good coworker but its basically been

    (various gross coughing noises)
    (regurgitating-phlegm noises)
    (throat clearing noises like marge simpson)
    (trying to discreetly spit into a paper towel which you then crumple up further and put back down on your desk)

  14. Witnessed, I myself am guilty of really needing to clear my throat but I try to at least get as far away from other people as I can first.

    I'm considering picking up target shooting again. Except the French word for "left-handed" also happens to be the name of a rifle manufacturer, making Google useless for finding left-handed gun models available in France.

    What are the gun laws like in France?

    The regulations are pretty tight, but you can get most of what a reasonable hunter or sports shooter will want with a license for, well, either of those. This is currently all pretty theoretical, though, as I definitely don't have the money for this right now.

    Why did I choose to give a redesigned character the most complicated-to-draw hairstyle possible? Her original incarnation had braided pigtails, and I decided this time to make her a little less childlike and go with braided bundles of box braids like this. Naturally that means I have to draw big braids, then sit there picking out line after line on them.

  19. Gee mom, sorry it took me five minutes to send you an email to yourself on your decade-old laptop. Maybe if you used your “new” laptop you bought two years ago this wouldn’t be a problem.
