Let's not forget Mojang.

Flu that spreads to your inner ear causing labyrinthitis.  All the fun of flu but with the added bonus of vertigo, headaches, deafness and excruciating ear & jaw pain.  Tell you what, vertigo combined with muscle fatigue/weakness makes for an interesting experience when trying to walk.

Why do no video game store clients have tabs of all things? It's 2017 (hell, it's practically 2018) and neither Steam nor Galaxy has what fucking well should've been a standard feature back when the 2010's were just getting started. I must say, I'm fed up with having to browse one page at a time like I'm using Internet Explorer circa 2001.

Its not like there are standard controls in about twenty different languages (and frameworks) that serve that exact purpose.  Hell, if they really can't use them, then find some crap online that works relatively well, and reimplement it for...whatever ass-backwards methods you're using.

The touchscreen on my tablet freaked the fuck out for a while.  Started with a square inch dead zone on the bottom right...then, noticed that I was getting phantom touches in that section since I have that developer option enabled.  It was actually a bit spooky, like my tablet was possessed by the spirit of a complete cunt.  Power cycling seems to have exorcised the issue, thankfully.  I like being able to use periods.

Did you know that yesterday Sean Hannity tweeted some poll to show that Hillary Clinton is doing really badly in popularity polls?

https://twitter.com/seanhannity/status/943535605501382657

...No one on Earth wants Hillary to be POTUS as badly as the Fox employees. They just can't cope without her.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

Nobody tell them that Hillary didn't win.  Nobody.

Ironbite-cause this is hilarious.

They spent so much time developing talking points to attack President Hillary Clinton that they're flailing about helpless now. I think Hannity even said "President Clinton" on air once... and he wasn't talking about events of two decades ago.

Annoy isn't the right word, but here we go...

I was talking about race issues with some coworkers.  We work at a public high school in Indianapolis, but our program draws students from 10 other nearby schools, most of which are suburban or rural.  It doesn't seem to have been been much of a problem at our school - the student body is pretty diverse (38% Black, 37% White, 19% Hispanic) - but minority students from the other, Whiter schools have complained about increasing open racial hostility since Trump was elected.  One of the people in the conversation, an older, Trump-supporting woman, said the following:

"I always try to be color blind, and I just can't believe how bad race issues are out here.  I grew up in New Jersey, and there were a ton of different races there, and everybody just got along except for the Jews, because they were just so high and mighty and thought that they were so much better than everybody else.  But racism cuts both ways.  I used to love Oprah until I found out how racist she was, and I've heard that the Obamas are really anti-white too [Makes eye contact with me and realizes that she is about to have to defend that statement].  I don't really have anything to base it on, and I've never seen any evidence that it's true, but I've heard it somewhere."

It's cool that she can see the Jews through her colorblind glasses.  I also wonder what other major social issues that she is proud to be blind to.  Finally, in retrospect, I wish that I had asserted that Trump drowns kittens for fun, since simply hearing something apparently exceeds her required burden of proof for believing defamatory statements.

My AV was giving me contradictory statements about whether it was really working, and eventually I had to reboot. Urgh.

I would've said several things I'd heard about the Trump Supporting woman - such as hearing she fucks horses and grinds up puppies to eat, and if pressed for how I know this, I'd say "I don't have any proof or evidence for this, it is just something I heard you do."

Maybe work in a take that at pizzagate such as alleging she eats pizza made of human flesh or something.

Edit: And my stepdad is being as usual a useless drunk fat idiot.

He just sits around getting even fatter every day - honestly I hope I never marry with "my heart". Marrying with your wallet is marrying with your brain.

I'd shack up with Ivanka if it meant I could live the high life.

How much mucus can one body produce?  I swear, I've expectorated half my body weight in snot in the past week.  A cold is a GREAT way to spend one's first week as an engaged person.  Aaaaaand fiancee is sick, too, because much like old Christmas lights going out, if one gets sick, everyone gets sick.  Laaaaaaaaaaaaaame.
