    There is no “tone” in text. You can’t tell HOW something is being said. I have to remind myself wife of this now and then because she gets texts that she think are in a different “tone” than she thinks. I tell her “It’s text. Not personal conversation. They’re not being short with you, they’re being quick so the talk moves faster.”

    Bill Burr’s new special makes light of this: How a woman’s cockteasing can sound like rape when read plainly on paper.

    You know the type. Let’s not pretend they don’t infest society. “Nu-Male” is my favourite nickname for them.

    Is that one of the guys from the Cum Town podcast? Looks a lot like him. If that’s the case, he’s one of the most irreverent people I’ve ever heard.

    That meme doesn’t even come close to the journalist in real life. I’m not sure about pegging but the real guy looks like he’d say he’s totally cool with his girlfriend wanting an open relationship to fuck bbc. Nope, doesn’t bother him.

    I went through my old Twitter from way back around 2010 and got rid of all the tweets I had making fun of retarded and fat people. Stuff I thought was real funny in my mid 20’s. Some real cringey stuff.

    It would be absolutely disqualifying if a future employer ever went looking and was able to link it to me. I also don’t have Facebook anymore for over a year now. And my Instagram is mostly just my dog and cat.

    The way people are using social media to destroy people completely devoid of context is scary to me. Especially because the people claiming outrage aren’t really outraged. They feign being offended to score social points and sit on their throne of fake moral superiority. Meanwhile, someone with a family and kids just lost his job because some shithead SJW, needs to score some points.

    Boy I went back and read some Facebook IM chats from the early days. 2007 ish maybe? Boy it was cringingly bad what I thought was funny. Then again that’s when I got into Tucker Max and thought his book was top comedy. Anyone read IHTSBIH recently? Does it hold up outside of the obvious change in times we are at right now?

    I have made maybe 15 tweets on my Twitter account nothing outrageous. When I first got it I tweeted at a couple of porn stars about liking a podcast I heard them on. I wonder if even that’s enough skeeviness for future employers? Better safe than sorry I guess deleting them.

    It’s fine. It reads like the memoir of the guy from your office that is 24 and won’t shut the fuck up about the fun shit he did in college. I have that guy in mine, anyway. It’s not terribly well written, but some of the stuff is still pretty funny. But when you remember that the guy writing it was in his early 30s when a lot of the stories supposedly happened, it’s a bit cringey.

    Yet somehow not as cringe as what he's blogging about on medium now.

    Makes sense. We've gone from drunk posting and the boobie thread to people having kids, tales of sobriety and CPAP machine talk.

    As to me, I basically don't have a social media presence. The few tweets I have are from this account, and complain about NFL shitty streaming service. No Facebook. No Instagram.

    Totally not worth it to me.

    Interestingly enough, this place pretty well is my social media platform... but somewhat (albeit not perfectly) protected... I usually share stuff with friends via text or actual phone calls... or via Slack messaging (that we're all on). Nothing that's monetized or public.

    Tell me about it. A few days ago we posted a record high temp of 29°C and 95% humidity. It was hot as balls. Last night it got down to 6°C (almost freezing).

    WTF.

    I registered my twitter handle when it first started, so it's literally just my first and last name. Which now happen to the same first and last name of a mildly-successful NHL player (from what I can tell, I don't follow ice skating). I know whenever he has a good game because my phone blows up with congratulatory tweets. I don't use twitter for much beyond reading NBA and NFL stuff, and rarely tweet, but I'm sure if I were to say something offensive and viral it'd just get blamed on that guy.

    It certainly outlasted the RMMB. Probably because everyone on here can accept that an airplane can take off from a fast-enough running treadmill.

    The RMMB is still stored (to a degree) on the Way Back Machine. All our immature posts of ass wiping and wishing death on folks who post off-topic are still out there somewhere... Waiting to ruin one of us if we dare to become famous.

    Does it matter if it’s on the fat burning or cardio setting?

    Seriously, EVERY FUCKING DAY for the past three weeks or so, it will be almost 100 degrees all day, then a heavy rain shower comes out of nowhere. You have to scramble out to your car and roll up the windows, and five minutes later, the sun is back out, baking the pavement, and turning everything into a sauna for the rest of the day.

    Today I was installing camber bushings for a wheel alignment on a motor home, when out of nowhere, it starts fucking POURING.
    So I had to rush and get all of the alignment equipment off of the vehicle, and then worry about how to get it all back to the shop.

    Oh, and did I mention that our alignment pit floods at the slightest provocation?
    Because it does.

    I'm getting really sick of this weather.
