I know it’s trendy to fight the system and cry that we are all becoming slaves of technology, but this attitude overlooks that computers and phones are tools for communicating. When someone thinks I’m an idiot smiling at a machine, I’m actually smiling at my girlfriend who is 10000 miles away and whom I would have never met if not for these newfangled electronics. As they say: when the wise man points to the moon, the fool looks at the finger.
This is a topic that I’ve been wanting to tackle for a while now; much credit to this excellent post for bringing it to the front of my brain.
Christmas is coming, and since a few of you have asked me where to get these i thought i would just put them all in one list, so;
- Aerogel - (currently out of stock, sorry.)
- Ecosphere - Comes in many different shapes; Large Sphere, Small Sphere, Small Pod/oval and more.
- Could not find a Gomboc, sorry.
- Gallium - 20 grams, 40 grams, 100 grams
- Miracle Berries - A lot cheaper than i thought they would be!
- Ferrofluid/Magnetic Fluid - heres a bonus gif :D
My friend’s dad used to work on Kim Possible and one time we went with him to work and I remembered how a classmate of mine had asked me once why Bonnie’s boobs were round and Kim’s were pointy so I asked my friend and her dad walked in and my friend immediately spun the question on him and I was like no wait stop but without even blinking he just said ‘because Kim’s are real’
so I decided to tell my mom about my situation with her friend/my employer while we went to Target for tree lights, and how he chewed me out for those mistakes and everything, and I expected her to be the one in my family that was like “he’s right you should try harder to be more accurate in your work you shouldn’t make too many mistakes in jobs”
it was probably because she was already in a bad mood today from other problems with my dad and another friend of hers, but instead she actually agreed with me and started to get mad at my employer and sided with me and we spent most of the way back talking about how he’s already been on the bad side of our family a few times before and how he can be sloppy himself and has no right chewing me out for not keeping 100% track of things
so I might not be forced to have to work this dumb gig anymore, on the bright side
on the other hand, if the parent I expected to be on my employer’s side is aggravated with him now, I can only imagine how angry the parent I expected to be annoyed with him in the first place will be when we tell him what happened
