I remember the time of shedding and cold rocks.

We have another on the way. Damned reptilians.

Just another example of the dangers of butt computing. As we move more and more of our data out of our own PCs and into the butt, we risk losing control of our information. After all, you don't own the hardware in your butt storage.

FTFA, "...you accidentally publish a bit of complete nonsense."

For the NYT, it's no accident.

Was this meant for the sarcasm thread?

The real news story is that a senior editor at the NYT is apparently one of those "Oh, those whacky millennials" people.

FTA: "We asked Eric Bailey, the creator of "Millennials to Snake People," if he had anything to say about his work making it into the Grey Lady. "Computers were a mistake," he replied."

His reply.  Just, beautiful!

That article made no sense to me.  I don't know if it's because I'm tired or not tech savvy enough to understand what happened.

"America's trade deficit narrowed dramatically during the Time of Shedding and Cold Rocks."

Man, what a time that was.  Only rich people had warm rocks on which to bask themselves.  All we poor people had were cold rocks.  If we tried to heat them up, some rich guy would slither in and take it.

And the shedding!  I used to get turned on watching the chicks slither out of their old skin but that got old fast.  There was a lot of shedding.  On the upside, I got enough skins for a belt, some socks, cod piece cover (they were the rage during S & CR) and a hippy headband (not as popular).

The new regime promised warm rocks for all and they delivered.  They had a really popular Trade in Your Cold Rocks and that helped the economy.  They passed sweeping reforms so banks could make proper loans to people so they could get warm rocks instead of renting from predatory warm rock landlords.

You could feel safe on a warm rock if you owned it.  Just sayin.

I like that as much as the Boston Aqua Teen incident press conference:
"I feel like my hair is pretty perfect but altogether I want to redirect this to the haircuts of the '70s," Berdovsky said, ignoring reporters' shouts.

Yep. This was sort of a meh-story up until I got to that point. His comment made my day.

I've done that...

You see, I wrote a Chrome extension a while ago.  I would change any instance of "Trump" on a page to a random thing like "Idiot President", or "Living Cheeto"...  You get the idea.

I made an edit to an article that I wrote that happened to have Trump's name in it.  I republished the article without noticing that the entire article now had Trump's name changed.

That was stupid.

"We asked Eric Bailey, the creator of "Millennials to Snake People," if he had anything to say about his work making it into the Grey Lady. "Computers were a mistake," he replied."

My dad worked at The Times back when everything was set on Linotype machines.

When a story was incomplete, the operators would frequently put a slug in that read 'more shiat coming'. Once in a while, they'd forget to remove them and they'd find their way into the paper. /CSB

I use this extension so the headline read "New York Times Issues Correction After Editor Fails to Turn Off 'Snake People to Snake People' Browser Extension" and the problem was described as
"America's trade deficit narrowed dramatically during the Time of Shedding and Cold Rocks." It should have said, "America's trade deficit narrowed dramatically during the Time of Shedding and Cold Rocks."

At least it didn't have any references to the Clutch Plague, which renders as "Clutch Plague" with the extension active.

/CSB

When I was in the Army a buddy was in charge of editing the Chaplain's monthly newsletter.  Sometimes he put funny little stuff in there that you might not notice if you weren't looking for it.  Once he put "God is Empty" in tiny font at the end of one of the articles.  Looked like ellipses unless you looked close.  Still have a copy.
