Ok, all in all, that could have been worse. It made narrative sense, just they didn’t work hard enough to make it land.

Lost is the Gold Standard for shitting the bed in a finale in our house. I mean, I am kind of lukewarm but I think D came close to hunting down persons responsible. Can GoT take the crown?

Kiwi asks the office if all of the Australians will be doing a yardie today in remembrance.

If I tried that I’d die. On the spot. Just dead.

Amateurs demo live, professionals narrate video.

Today I am reminded that my praxis is shit.

Previous Employer: hey, just calling to ask...did you change super funds?

Yeah?

PE: Only, we haven’t paid your final super contribution yet, two and a half months after leaving.

Sometimes you just have to test an integration in prod

If this new Godzilla movie doesn’t feature Mega Robert Smith...well, it will be bullshit.
