I went on to become a sailor on this huge ass ship and I was gonna show my sailor buddies SS13 so I downloaded it and it turned out to be a li**er transvestite porn flash. I was like, wtf guys, haha. Then a few hours later there was a work meeting where every sailor was along with the captain, and when it ended this one li**er got up and very pointedly said something about li**er transvestite porn lover looking right at me. I pretended I didn't know what he was talking about. I then realised it was he that switched ss13 with that porn flash. Fucking li**ers.

Anxiety sucks
But at least you're not as anxious as this one person I know. They're really anxious to the point that they avoid any and all social contact for several days if they say something that seems normal but they personally thought was strange, and then it usually only takes a few days for their next anxiety attack

Also sucks: Lack of sleep. Slept 3 hours, laid in bed 3 hours after trying to get back to sleep

That doesn't stop the cops either
Or the criminals

Just aim the loud end at the bad guy
And get a local gun club membership so you can train in safety at the shooting range

A planet over 12 times bigger than Jupiter has been found drifting alone through space around 20 light years away from Earth.

It is but there's not much of a game yet other than seeing how quick you can launch



Or how badly you can screw it up

We had 'VR' headsets developed about 15 years before they hit the market. So if that's the point of reference it won't be any time soon
However, these could work as an extra thing to use while wearing one of those headsets so we already have proven that there is a market for the things. So maybe it will be earlier than 2035

I've got a few tips for an informal face to face.

If you feel nervous, hold onto one of your thumbs between your index and other thumb and cross your ankles beneath the table. It'll keep you from fidgeting.
Try to copy their movements and facial expressions but make sure you delay it by a good few seconds so it's not obvious, imitation is flattery but mimicry is annoying.
Make eye contact, but don't stare, let your gaze move around every now and then. If eye contact is hard, look at their forehead instead, they can't tell the difference.
Also, smile appropriately - Too much smile is either creepy or makes you look dumb. Lack of smiling makes you look like a nerd and nobody likes nerds.

Pick up the phone and just tell them you understand their problems and are working to fix them

Then just do whatever, nobody really knows how HR works except HR

What the fuck I was looking up a sauce name (andalouse) in the supermarket on my smartphone and the search bar autocompleted to the sauce instead of the place the sauce takes the name from! Fucking android tracking me down to the fucking isle of the supermarket!

to be fair I'm pretty sure more people consume or want to purchase andalouse sauce than actually go to andalouse

I've noticed that search engines are getting a little too accurate with their predictions. I wanted to look up someone obscure after watching a video on them, typed two letters of their name and google had their name as the top suggestion.

I had to call up my doctor's the other day to book an appointment, not my usual doctor either, afterwards I made a calendar entry through the calendar app.
I typed in Telephone.

It suggested: Appointment, with, Dr, [x]
