I figured out why restaurants in the US are having a hard time finding staff... all their former employees are now working as supply teachers.

Beginning to think my short-lived, less than stellar, run at selling secure collaborative document sharing software wasn't all my fault.

Of all the useful tools of the past two decades, people seem to have the most conceptual difficulty with shared documents. There's little more SMH than "I downloaded it and made these changes, can you update?" No, but you can!

It would be really nice if my brain would stop reading NACI as NaCl so things would not come out as
"Salt now strongly recommends that children aged 5 to 11 years receive 2 doses of the pediatric vaccine..."

It is easy to underestimate the skill required to do that. RIP.
Photographer Mick Rock, whose iconic portraits of rock stars including David Bowie, Lou Reed and Debbie Harry saw him dubbed “the man who shot the 70s,” has died. He was 72. apne.ws/NKwQ8OK

In honour of the fact that my DNA says I'm mostly Scot...

Teacher: "Good morning children, each Thursday we're going to have a general knowledge quiz. The pupil who gets the answer right can have Friday and Monday off and not come back to school until Tuesday."

I wonder exactly what I'm supposed to tell myself here.

Just came home from a grocery shop, the only thing they were out of was Unvaccinated Trucker's Tears.

@JoyceWhiteVance @fuzzymittens @NYFarmer I’ll never forget the look on opposing counsel’s face after he realized he should not have walked into our law office for a deposition, handed me a stack of papers and asked me to make copies.

Boy, it's been some time since I had a Monday morning where my brain's edit function was not up to speed. I apologize to any non-idiots I may have offended.

As for the idiots, come back later, I'll sharpen my sarcasm just for you.

Can someone please help Justin Trudeau with his bladder control problem? I see his need for facilities is bot-trending once again.

It's absolutely wrong to go to this petition to support idiot unvaxxed truckers and fill it with editorial comments and bad data. form.jotform.com/2201857930152

I'm so happy with the increased productivity of my automated build tools that I'm thinking about going back to scss and save -> generate -> copy -> refresh. I'm seriously at "merge changes in one by one to see which causes everything to go nuts". Not helpful.

Aaron Rodgers and the Packers can still make it to the Super Bowl if Mike Pence has enough courage.

In a world of people like Aaron Rodgers and Jon Voight, be a Colin Kaepernick

Today in botched surveys, a reputable shop has a "select all that apply" question with radio buttons instead of checkboxes. Surely a system should generate the "select one / select N / select all" text so the error is obvious in a test run? I mean come on, this is your business!
