I had some printed circuit boards made up in china a couple of weeks ago and hilariously I still have no idea how many of them I'm going to be sent ... you pay for "about ten boards" and they send you about ten boards
since you're just using up their spare capacity
I like turtles.
"Meh, whatever feels like it weighs ten boards at the time."
it's dumb because I only need one, or two if something goes badly wrong assembling the first one

the others I'll just end up giving away
but again, the setup time means it costs them pretty much the same to make one as it does to make ten

we had this in the print shop at university too, we had some cassette inlay cards printed for the college bands tape and we only needed 250 but we printed 500 because it didn't actually cost any more
I like turtles.
That's why I like cooking as a hobby. If I get extra of some ingredient, chances are I'll use it down the line anyway.

Like how I got six bricks of cream cheese today thinking we were all out, but it turned out we still had two and half in the fridge still. But I make cheesecakes and pizza "dough" enough that it's going in my belly eventually anyway. Or if I have whipping cream that I need to use in a hurry, it pays to know how to make a basic ice cream base.
yeah I do try not to buy extra food if I can avoid it
I like turtles.
I mostly buy extra [things that vegans wouldn't approve of]. Pork roasts are cost-effective and easy to slow-cook. Eggs are cheap right now so I try to keep six dozen or so in case of a sudden price increase. >_>
lol six dozen
The RSPH report warns that "social media may be fuelling a mental health crisis" in young people.

... I sort of hope that's true
maybe we can get a fucking government health warning on it
if smokers have to put up with pictures of lung surgery on their cigarette packets then facebook should be forced to show pictures of fourteen year olds hanging from nooses
oh, I went there.

sort of wish I was in another country because it's going to be fascinating to watch if you're not caught up in it

rotfl
once again, I'm getting that urge

you know the one

the one that makes you want to buy a hundred copies of Orwell's 1984 and stand on street corners handing them out
One shall stand, one shall ball.
So my idiot city has an Armed Forces Day Parade Every year. Attached you will find a quickly drawn map that gives you a little idea of how my Armed Forces Day goes. Sure hope I had nothing important to do today!

At least there were no F-18s flying overhead this year. Christ that's annoying.

red chamber dream
tanks? jesus
I bet that looks very similar to the map that's in the office of whoever plans this shit
one of these countries ain't like the others
one of these countries shouldn't be bombed
One shall stand, one shall ball.

I mean it has to be a deliberate attempt to fuck over people living in this neighborhood. You basically can't leave. And I did have something that needed doing today so I'm slightly irritated.

I don't make my way over to it these days but there was always one or two M1s around for this thing back when I was a kid. Then there's a bunch Humvees and artillery pieces and shit like that. A lot of it sits in the local mall parking lot to trick kids into being proper America Fuck Yeah types.

Few years ago we got stuck behind one of those tanks for a bit while going to dinner. It's weird sharing the road with an Abrams.
dat control
I swear I'm becoming more rebellious and suspicious of government as I get older

I think that means something is increasingly wrong with the world
One shall stand, one shall ball.
If I could go back in time I'd go back to where humanity first thought up parades and beat every single one of those motherfuckers until they learned to fuck off with that shit. Some of us got things to do.

Fuck The Man is the correct opinion at all times, you're good.
