That is a damn good boss, the kind of guy you take a pay cut to work for.

Thor: Love and Thunder: was awesome
Going thrift shopping in 102-degree heat for hours afterward: decidedly unawesome
I did get: GoT book 1, Wheel of Time 4 and 5, the Assassin trilogy by Robin Hobb, and Masters of Horror: Jenifer on DVD
All for a cool: $8
Almost chills down the 108 heat index: almost

Still haven't gotten covid. Even when those around me had it. My immune system is to strong.

OK so I work at tacobell... my sister went to a tacobell the other night. She asked them to grill her sons soft taco. They told her it was a Osha violation!!!!!! REALLY TO GRILL TACOES ON A TACO GRILL IS A OSHA VIOLATION??!!!

I so want to go to that tacobell and kick some heads in.

1 for being so stupid.
2 for not giving good customer service.
& 3 for being to lazy to be allowed to work at tacobell!!!! You fools are a disgrace to all tacobell employees!

Granted, I am not familiar with every regulation in 29CFR1910.XXX (the OSHA general industry regulations), but... pretty sure they are off their rocker on that.

Car: has a transmission problem. Completely stopped working.
My daughter: was borrowing it, broken down 45 minutes from my house.

Towed: to the dealership
Will: take at least 2 months just to diagnose it.

Also: found out my 5 year old car has a 5 year/60K mile waranty.
I made: the cutoff by 45 days.
So: I am getting a new transmission and a rental car

I'm thinking: about buying a lottery ticket now.

Very similar story here: several year back
The dying days of our warranty: saved us about $10k
Sadly: I did not buy that lottery ticket

I set my "homepage" to: the "Random" button on Wikipedia
So when I open my browser: I can learn a random bit of knowledge
Mostly I get a random: bird, bug, footballer, or politician
But every once-in-a-while: I land on really, really cool stuff
Yesterday I nabbed: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Belili
And today I was graced by this amazingness: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Publil...orfyrius#Works

This: makes me happy

Here's a fun anatidaephobia.
Anyone who is interested in knowing that fun fact should use Google. Google will tell you.
