<todd> Sometimes I really wonder how much longer there'll be anything at all useful on the internet.
<[livejournal.com profile] ronebofh> there's plenty useful.
<rone> but the useless grows geometrically
<todd> To squeeze out the useful....
<rone> Google will work on algorithms to put the useful stuff into self-squeezing containers, like toothpaste.
<rone> trust the Google!
<todd> Oh yeah. I'm feeling the love.
<lb> ahh, c'mon. Google will obviously fund free public "hugging machines" modeled after the work of Temple Grandin. Only this machine will simultaneously be feeling you up and mapping your organs and innards.
<todd> Matching the organs with people who have the money to pay for them.
<lb> Mining the populace's external markers to sell to the drug companies (who will then target drugs better) and the insurers (who will then deny coverage pre-emptively)
<lb> you may not know it but you totally want this IBS drug. Which you'll end up paying for out of pocket. P.S. we'll find a way to keep you from ever being able to taper off it.

<[livejournal.com profile] nyar> when did 4ed come out?

<[livejournal.com profile] palecur> some journals you wonder if maybe they think 'peer review' means 'we asked the Duchess of York if it was cool'
<[livejournal.com profile] ronebofh> ha
<rone> either that or craning your neck to look at the dude in the next urinal
<palecur> nice
<rone> "excellent dick-holding form, nice steady stream, good stance"
<palecur> "bit of a splatter towards the end, that'll cost him from the Belarussian judge."
<rone> "fingers slipped on the zip-up... hurried it."
<nutrino> too many shakes

<[livejournal.com profile] ronebofh> more exciting moving goodness today for us.
<[livejournal.com profile] davewsmith_blog> what stage is your move in?
<rone> dws: it's either in the 'anger' or 'despair' stage.

My stepkids' father died in late March.  Since then, things have been a bit of a blur.  I changed jobs, which didn't help (although it certainly helped other problems).  But after months of insane and almost conspiratorial setbacks (bad contractor, credit gone wrong, car difficulties, health problems, insanity at work), we've finally closed the deal on a loan for the house, which frees the estate (my stepkids) from any further fiduciary responsibility.  Escrow closed today, and once probate closes (in another couple of months, we hope), the kids will have full access to the money.  That's good!

Now we have to move to the new house.  That's bad.

We get to throw away all kinds of junk.  That's good!

There is a lot of junk.  Still.  After several garage sales and uncounted dump runs.  That's bad.

We're going to rent our current house; in addition, we're renting the cottage in the back of the new house.  That's good!

We have to clear out the current house and finish doing work to it before we can rent it, and we need to do it fast so we aren't paying two mortgages for too long.

That's bad.  But it needs doing, and it's, overall, the best course of action for everyone involved.  So off to bed with me, so we can tackle the situation with a full head of steam tomorrow.

<[livejournal.com profile] davewsmith_blog> so, the bizarro 'this can't be happening' bug today is eventually explained as documented ms sql server behavior.
<dws> when provided with a datetime in milliseconds, it rounds to the nearest 1/300th of a second, which may be in the future.

<palecur> Brings a whole new angle to how they get the cream filling in the cupcake
<Arian> now you hve to share
<[livejournal.com profile] ronebofh> how do you know it's rape?
<roneYSI> it's a tattoo!
<palecur> she has some pretty srs red marks on her ass and thighs
<palecur> but maybe it's consensual rough play
<roneYSI> "nothin' says lovin' like a dick up the ass!  hee-hee!"

<todd`> I am now wondering why there weren't calls to privatize FEMA after the Katrina debacle. Isn't that de rigueur for those people?
<todd`> I like the idea of for-profit Hurricane relief. That is something Bush really needed to do. It would have made his presidency just a little more special.
<[livejournal.com profile] ronebofh> if it had been any more special he would've turned into forrest gump.
<todd`> It'd be fun to have an anonymous pipeline into conservative radio. I'd suggest it!
<rone> you make it sound so dirty.
<muzzy> I wish todd was on conservative talk radio.
<rone> he should audition for Conservative Talk Radio Idol.
<rone> wow, i hate myself for thinking of that.
