Well, yeah. If you mention whiskey around me and then don't offer me some, I'm bound to get a little irritated.

That's because they'd murder subby's mom for a snort goddammit and I WANT IT NOW~!!!

I'm going to have to go find some college girls and start whispering "Mellon Balls" in their ears. Maybe they'll get topless. Maybe i'll get hit with another restraining order.

Because People in power are Stupid: Whiskey Tango Foxtrot


Talking to an airline always irritates me.

Scott Adams, creator of Dogbert, calls airlines and similar business "confusopolies".They use all the techniques of confusion and your ignorance to maximize their profits at your expense.

That is why their web pages are illegible except to professional travel agents and why they change their prices hundreds of thousands of times a day--you are basically negotiating a unique fare and they keep you confused as to what is available from the get go to the final booking. They also push ridiculous routings and scheduling to force you to give up and pay way, way too much for a direct flight when they know damn well the whole plane is empty and can be cancelled right up to departure time or hours later than that if they want to be sadistic and make you wait for a plane that is never taking off.

However, researchers added that this aggressive behaviour only occurred when provoked

So, the researchers deliberately provoked the test group? It sounds like another group of "scientists" setting up a "test" to confirm what they were trying to prove. They probably need more research, and money to fund it.

Sober people make me nervous.
/ spent most of Friday night with an amazing woman and a bottle of pinot. Maybe date two will be her, a beer, and some dbacks losing...

decimated number file charts of box and whisker graphing translating the hair of an invertebrate-flogged amphibian drone. It normally gets down to why they're sober and what barrel is rolling over from an inverted erosion lathe due to thermal time differentials in the ambient bag.

Well, that certainly explains a lot about the Fark troll brigade.

I'm swooned just thinking about it.

I wasn't going to comment on this, but I've become increasingly more agitated since reading the headline. Time to go blow off some steam.
