1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Yet ANOTHER lie from a person who makes horchata the wrong way (with sugar and not condensed milk).

    Would you really prefer the double fatty treatment to sitting close to a crying baby? Because I think I would rather sit in the lavatory than sit between two people who spill over into my seat

    Plus, it's very rare that the baby cries the whole time anyway

    Yup. I have a slender build, so I haven't really suffered during the occasional flight sitting next to a fatty. Leg room is more often an issue for me.

    Plus, fat peoples' shoulders make good head rests for when I sleep.

    Even worse use you as a pillow.


    Crying baby any day of the week and twice Sunday, I can't stand sitting next to wide people on planes.

    The only thing worse is fat people with add, who can't sit still or people who recline their seat the whole flight, sit your ass up its not night time and I can't see the picture on my screen when you recline your seat.

    I don't really care that they were talking shit about me in a language that they don't understand, but it does annoy me that the Chinese who run my local sushi place called me waiguoren when I ordered in Danish and they speak less Danish than I do, so are obviously FOB.

    Also, when you're 500m from a university with a huge Asian Studies department, maybe not the best idea to talk shit about customers in one of the more popular languages of study.

    Okay, there are many things that got me to PO'd today, but I'll only mention a couple:

    1. If you are making a right turn, you do not have to veer left first. If you do, you will come into my lane and hit me unless I take evasive action. Stupid bittay crossed a good foot into my lane in order to make a right turn.

    2. I'm sorry but I just do not want to hear you crying out "hoo hoo I am so behind on my work can't finish a task that other people's work depends on just so overwhelmed." Maybe I am just being a Calvinist asshole here, but how about you betake your lazy ass into the office during non-scheduled working hours and finish your damn task. ("Hoo hoo can't exert on the weekend or after 4:30 I am but mortal.")

    People who do unpaid overtime piss me off, they fuck it up for everyone else. If a task requires X number of hours to complete then X number of hours should be paid for, but no, the man can always rely on ass lickers to work for free.

    At times (wage employees and similar) I agree. Its employer abuse to do that. But for other jobs, that is the job. When the job is not hours per task, but rather the task is the job.

    We are not paid by the hour. Moreover, if a person doesn't have her work finished, she should not express exasperation with me when I press her to get it finished. Because when that happens I'm going to "turn the tables" and express exasperation at her lazy ass for not getting her work finished.

    EDIT: I see that the bit about "non-scheduled" in my original post would naturally have given the impression that I was talking about hourly work. I just meant the hours the person is normally in the office.

    Not racist (well, probably not enough to be worthy of note). I just resent being called a nasty term for foreigner by someone who has had more time to integrate but hasn't even tried, in a country neither of us is from. I mean shit buddy, I speak their language, the local language, and an international language, and they're making fun of me?
