And then people start yelling instructions at me, but their instructions mean nothing to me because I cannot see what they are talking about. And then they're all like "who the hell can't close a pizza box for cripes sakes goddammit!" Whenever that happens, I become pissed off; you can yell at me all you want, but it's not going to make me perceive the goddamn spatial relations.

People should give you 2 dimensional instructions only.

In the other world, I am basically viewed as an idiot who cannot walk and chew gum at the same time. It's weird to be viewed, and treated, so differently in different circumstances.

Your posts are probably the worst writing on styleforum. What is your area of competence?

I do believe (accept as being true) that you should pull your head in.

I had to google what it meant last year. reading to the comments on the numerous articles - many others, including black americans had to google the meaning also.

but the Red Sox player was from the slums of Houston, Texas where apparently he was well versed in all the old school racial slurs. weirdly the man who made the slur, might have not actually known it was a racist term in the first place, was sadly a public servant, and was promptly fired from the job by the local mayor.

What is the meaning/history of the slur?

I hope that was a wake up call for you to lay off the pipe.

Yes, the designers of manual typewriters did not draw on the 500 years of typography involving the Roman alphabet. In the century that typewriters were a dominant technology they also failed to further develop typefaces, point size, line length, leading, tracking or kerning. Lazy cunts.

Now where to find replacements? I checked out Jcrew's merino vneck, but the sizing has me concerned.

ffffuuuu.gif

(Next: Figure out how to add more natural predators to my surroundings)

Go ahead and lulz at me, but JC Penney's store brand merino v-necks are quite nice. Slim cut, cheap, durable thus far. I've only had a couple for a few months though.

Moth holes are fucking awful.

You fucking bean counter! I might be getting too old to lay pipe (perform the sexual act) as often as I once did, and a younger pipe would certainly command a lower hourly rate, but I'll be damned if I lay off my pipe, he still performs many valuable functions.

It's actually something I learned on SF having never come across the term or concept. It's racist speech that is given in code.
