i've been slacking at work and didnt really do anything from 9am to 12noon as manager is not in yet.


I'd love to be slacking at work today but 6 of the 10 middle managers at my job are completely incompetent so I've been running around putting out fires that could have been easily avoided if a shaved chimp were in charge.

Seeing as this is meant for random chat, I'm going to vent a little....

A little over 2 weeks ago, I was put on a strong medication to treat migraine headaches and manic depression. The med seems to be working as my mood swings have leveled out a touch, but my reaction time seems to have slowed. I also have more energy, yet I sleep a lot more. Well, last week I rear ended someone (not sure if the med was a factor as the accident was a full 12 hours after taking it)and today the insurance company said it was a total loss. My coverage will be enough to cover the loan and the bank is being nice and letting me keep the car. Its drivable, but will need quite a bit of work. When discussing option to come up with the money to fix my car (I'm plenty capable of repairing it myself which will make it much, much cheaper) she mentioned, dare I say it, sell the pc I just built!!! XD


YEa.....not gonna happen....not enough medication on the planet lol.

Things are busy at my workplace (which is why I haven't posted as much today!)

But I am on my lunchbreak. Which ended 5 minutes ago. Time to go back.

I work at a library so I open up books and read tons of random things. Today it was a medical textbook. Some interesting stuff:

The heart pumps blood through 70,000 miles worth of blood vessels... WHAT!?!?!

Reaction speed peaks at age 20 and begins declining at 26.

Hearing loss begins in the teenage years but is not noticeable.

Most people don't feel any significant affects of aging from age 30-45.

rate up for cool facts.

today I learned that there are "2,486 homeschooled students in British Columbia" and that "Provincial funding grants are sent to the registering school; no funding is sent to parents. The provincial funding grant amounts are as follows:

* Public schools receive $250 for each registered homeschooled child.
* An independent school authority holding a certificate of group 1 or group 2 classification receive $175 for each registered homeschooled child. Ministerial Order 383/03 (383/03)."

Yeah. Frigging boring. But I must do the bidding of people who ask me questions about things such as these. All I can say is thank god for the internet. Sometimes I wonder how people found out any of this random boring information before. Yeah, I know, books exist but did they actually make boring books about this stuff? In the past did public servants in the bureaucracy actually answer questions?

It is all a mystery to me.

These post reminded me Office Space, have you seen that movie? is nothing stellar but for some weird reason I find it a super fascinating portrait of the typical while collar life XD

My job IS Office Space. At any given time I can have up to 9 bosses, I'm not kidding. My job is like a platypus, so contradictory it shouldn't exist yet somehow it does.

I suppose I could look it up on the job thread but I am too lazy - what field do you work in?

and I may be necrobumping this because I am bored and I can't use irc at work

So after reading this forum for a week digging up all the FFXIV info I can get, I decided to sign up and join the community!

Figured what a perfect place to introduce myself :)

I do international logistics for a company that makes drive thru speaker equipment. If anything, we are 4 separate companies that just happen to occupy the same building because none of the departments communicate and constantly get into ******* contests...it's like watching children squabble except these children make much more money than I do Smiley: mad

Here's some randomness. (thanks for the revival Threx)

Anyone ever read House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski? I've had it for months and finally just picked it back up again. It's difficult to describle, it's basically the story of a house with impossible dimensions (it's bigger on the inside than on the outside) but the whole book has footnotes of another person narrating the story and telling his own story at the same time.
It's... different. I totally just mangled the description but I can't do any better at the moment with no sleep. Basically it's a total ********* I recommend it if you're into that sort of thing.
