My brother has this weird idea that things aren't illegal if you don't get caught immediately, or that the law doesn't apply to him, or something. I don't really know. I don't want to plumb the depths of his psyche. It just kept coming up in conversation today while we were both home for Christmas.
Things like running red lights in the middle of the night, or stealing shrimp from the grocery store. doesn't matter as long as you don't get caught, right? I guess? According to him?
Then we got in a discussion about doing home improvement and he didn't think you needed to get professional contractors and permits and things to rewire your kitchen or w/e, because who's going to know what you do in your own home?
dad: yeah, until you try to sell the house and the inspector notices that the kitchen layout doesn't match the floorplan and starts looking into things, or that the wiring isn't up to code, or that there aren't permits on file, and then you can't sell.
me: or when the faulty wiring causes an electrical fire in ten years, forensics looks into it, and suddenly you're on trial for manslaughter
If the buyers are lucky, the inspector notices that stuff before the sale can go through. If they aren't, they end up with Bibliosphere's hellmouth house which has made professionals go "huh, that's...that shouldn't be like that" whenever they've been called in to fix things. Or you end up with Groverhaus which...it's Notorious and the guy building it had to get himself licensed as an inspector because no credible professional would sign off on the shit he'd done; if he ever tries to sell it, it'll probably be condemned as unsafe.
Meanwhile, I'm annoyed that I ordered extra tendons with my pho and did not get extra tendons. They're on the receipt and everything, but - no container with extra tendons. :/ I've complained about it on the feedback form, but that doesn't get me the extra tendons I paid for.
(edit cos I forgot to actually...finish the sentence about Groverhaus.)
I wanted to sleep dammit -_-
Part of the problem is that he genuinely doesn't understand how difficult and dangerous wiring something is. We grew up with my dad as a handyman who could fix anything and basically hung ceiling fans as a side hobby. What the idiot I grew up with doesn't seem to remember is that my dad has two degrees in electrical and mechanical engineering. Dad knows how to do this stuff because he learned how to do it over the course of a four year degree. My brother has issues looking up online tutorials for how to vape weed
Been constipated all week. Ow :(
I am so sorry and that sounds like such an unpleasant time but oh my god that (hopefully) hyperbole at the end is fucking hilarious.
It would be so nice if that were a hyperbole, but no, he broke a $60 vape by shoving a nug of weed into it.
I just want to play fallout 76 but I think the servers keep crashing, how do you not prepare for this?!
why is it so impossible to find most ghibli music on youtube? I already own the princess mononoke soundtrack, I just want to link one specific song somewhere, but any uploads have been taken down :(
Forgot to get plastic wrap, or check if the store sells rolling pins. (We have a rolling pin somewhere, but fuck if I know where or if it got packed with the things that moved with us.)
ghibli is super protective of their ips. They crack down hard on piracy whenever they find it
Gotta put in a new insulin cartridge but i want to go back to sleep. I'll do the insulin bc i already feel a little bad physically, but bleh
Edit: i did it and whoops gotta take 8 units immediately to bring down my blood sugar
Spotted a monumentally bad take on Tumblr and I'd like to post it in Tumblr.txt but it involves acecourse and that starts a lot of fights.
Kindle book with a horrifically offensive portrayal of autistic people in the sample, on a site where I can't leave a review without paying for the book.
i'm trying to sleep before my stupid 6am shift. I slept from about 1130 to maybe 12, and i have to be up at 4. i think i found the problem (blood sugar, also too goddamn warm) but its currently 1:20 so today is officially off to a terrible start
216 am edit: aaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Spoiler: very painful tmi
Burlesque class involved a lot of spinning round on a chair, and my tights are made of the wrong material to be spinning about on a chair with carpet-like upholstery. I now literally have friction burns on my asshole.
Mom: "you should spend less time online, it's not good for you."
Also My Mom: (literally implies i'm a psycho because I don't dot my I's)
