    The removal of funny parts of SCP logs.

    The loud booms in my area that are obviously fireworks even though there's a national fireworks ban on. They give me a start every single time, plus the cats don't like them

    Are they doing that thing where they think the whole thing needs to be spooky, oversaturating with spook factor until it no longer has any emotional impact, as opposed to the original version's use of moments of levity to pace it out?

    Yeah, they've cut out funny lines from a lot of the logs - I just noticed it with 507. C'mon, that one was hardly serious to begin with! And they've taken out parts which ruin the jokes, like they changed 507's overblown way of defining "stabbing" so the other guy's response didn't make linguistic sense anymore, and they took out the bit about the researcher being surprised when the "surprise me" drink exploded.

    Now I definitely have to do my reading channel so I can put the good parts back in.

    That wolfwalkers is an apple tv exclusive and you have to have a subscription to watch it. And an apple device to watch it on. I dont own any sort of apple device at all, and even though i have friends with iphones, its still severely impractical to expect us to crowd around a fucking phone screen

    I cant believe cartoon saloon would ever pair up with something so exclusive and unreachable for so many. Im so disappointed, me and my friends have been looking forward to this film since it was announced

    I feel like Christmas would be better situated around mid-to-late January, at least in my local climate. Autumn is okay, then Christmas happens pretty early in winter and we have to wait till March for springtime. Winter drags on when the holiday's over.

    The American dude on this Netflix show that keeps saying 8 feet is 2.5 meters, because it's not. It's almost 2.5 meters, 2.43 specifically. So it annoys me when they say 8 feet or 2.5 meters for a measurement in something that's going to be judged on its size, because which one is it?!

    So I made a silly SU meme and posted it on Reddit, and most of the response has been positive, but uh

    Accidentally deleted about half of my novella's first draft >_< Luckily I hadn't got too far into it, but still.

    I had a craving for a pasta that I make which uses creamed spinach as a sauce, so I made it tonight. Only I forgot it makes the roof of my mouth feel horrible, so now I have to deal with that.

    I just spent 30 minutes trying to get off the phone with a pushy credit improvement law firm thing. Only reason I even answered is cause I was expecting a call about a house loan and that’s what it sounded like it was for at first.

    No I don’t want to pay $25 a month for your service from a law firm who’s phone kept cutting out I want to go back to sleep or talk to an actual bank thank you.

    I sprayed my computer chair seat with febreeze so that it won't smell funky, and now it's damp. And not drying out. And my pants got damp while I was sitting on it, and I had to switch pants then layer the febreeze-dampened pants and a blanket over the chair seat before I could sit on it without it getting my butt damp.

    Also, my laptop is probably in the process of dying. The screen has been busted for years, but it's slowly pushing away from the frame now. (And it wasn't charging for a while, but that turned out to be because the charger wasn't properly plugged in.)
