    Open-plan offices. 1. Managers think that all work gets done by people talking to each other. [1] 2. Managers want people working hard, not talking. 3 Some managers *do* want to walk around, to look at people to make sure...

    The current incarnation of the 1% has the awareness of a 2 yr old, or at most a 16 yr old troll. There's a cartoon I keep seeing, a family in a cave, in front of a fire, and the...

    Pleased to meet you, Madeleine. And please post again; Johnson, 300+ years ago, was full of shit. And I offer to you what all three of my daughters know: if someone tells them they "can't do something" becauswe they're girls...

    Re your last line: or, as I've said many times, this is NOT the Real 21st Century, I want the Real one back *now*, thankyouveddymuch. And, esp. for today and tomorrow, *this* was the future... the national anthem of fandom:...

    Saw that. LOVE IT. I was really wondering if the Queen was going to be dragged in.......

    You obviously didn't understand what I was saying. The self-proclaimed White People (y'know, like the assholes who want "white pride" parades), who have a dirty name and disparage everyone else....

    Horse hockey. You sound as though you're living in some GOP-fantasy 1950s. Most women I know, and have known, work regular jobs. Most folks can't afford to live on one paycheck. No, they dislike trolls, who sound like 16 yr...

    *shrug* My mom might have done buttons, once in a while. I can sew. I've done a lot of costumery (in con masquerades, I'm a journeyman, though if I win another, I'll be master class). You should see the silk...

    I wouldn't call it an Ur-Document for Pagans. Some good number of us were Pagans (or neoPagans) before it was published. And it was parody, of course. What's a little scary is that almost everything that everyone on the left...

    Well, you can get 'slaw at Popeyes. But they got rid of all the govenment-run restaurants, and outsourced to fast shit, er, food, and what, this is the Most Muscular Of Muscular, the Pentagon, Ya expect a fern bar...?...

    Was that "throwing billions at..." to be followed by "throwing millions out of work, and thus unable to afford to buy what they had been making"?...

    Damn. I hadn't thought of him, other than to reference him. "Of interest"? Well, yes - a fair percentage of us Pagans refer to the Goddess, and mean Gaea. The only real question is whether or not She's self-aware. (No,...

    Orvis... yeah, a tad pricey, but I have Palladium canvas boots on my feet as I type. From the mid-80's, I could get nice canvas boots. Then, about 15 years ago, suddenly the army-navy stores just stopped carrying them, and...

    I see, a photo-journalist's vest, often worn by Roland Hedley (in Doonesbury), but ok in spite of that.... Checked military surplus stores?...

    Um, wait, wait, "lock, lights, multitool, pump, puncture repair kit and chain lube" I think I can buy exactly the same lock - that is, about 6' of .25" chain and a key-operated padlock for Ok, I missed the exchange...

    I get really, REALLY annoyed at folks referring to SJW (it's SJW, not SJA, get with the program, here). 90% of where I see such references are from right-wingers, 99.44% of whom are "pure white" (see the above rant). It...

    I *am* going to be nasty. As others have noted, they're not "white". Nor are those of us whose ancestors are Jewish. And then there's "mixed race", which are, by definition, not "white" In fact, "white" genes are so regressive...

    It's worse than that, Jim! More and more people came to work in offices, and less in manufacturies, as the scum-per-cent moved jobs to sweatshops overseas. Then they pushed the lie that "oh, you're all middle class now, you're not...

    No! I will *not* give you my recipe for savory lupins with garlic.......
  • Commented on Ask me anything!
    I agree with Charlie. As I've said to folks from work, and to friends, if I'm explaining something, and they don't understand, I need to find a way to explain it better, so that they *do* understand. Otherwise, it's just...

    Don't use my mid-1960's Weller, or my late wife's 1970's? Weller pistol grip, and they've both got issues. I did replace the trigger, but there's still some wonky connection. I just buy whatever will fit.... Well... back in the early...

    What do you have against less-than-primo priced bikes? My current bike, in the late 80's, would have cost $300-$400, but I got it for $50 or so (US) at a pawn shop (I ride a Miyata, I can joke to...

    Simply, because overwhelmingly, men own the fashion industry, and mostly men decide what women should wear, and, esp. what's "sexy" and what's not. Explain to me, ignoring social mores, why anyone in their right or wrong mind would even think...

    A. Track. Bike. On. City. Streets. That he lived long enough to kill someone, and hadn't already been hit by other vehicles is amazing. Track bike: frame, wheels, one gear (higher) fixed to axle, chain, handlebards, and seat. Period. No,...

    About women blaming men for ...clothing... well, it's 100% true. Example 1: look at a woman's hat. Most are *crap*, no sweat band, cheap felt, for the same price as a man's, which will have the above. Example 2: ask...

    Since I'm not a company, nor an organization, I used a country code TLD, .us My hosting provider (or was it my registrar, I forget) *desperately* tried to get me to buy, and I think they registered, ,ninja. Dot-ninja? Really?...

    Which, I suppose, could also be an SEP. I mean, it's *your* problem if you can't afford the next greatest most wonderful 1 zillion dollar (US) i-whatever.......

    Or, as one commenter put it: 1. Turn off the power. 2. Unscrew the smart bulb and remove it. 3. Screw in an ordinary, non-smart bulb. 4. Turn the power back on....
