Graphic Carebear/Hellraiser fiction 

I panicked for a moment because the original LiveJournal post containing this fiction was down but thankfully the Carebears meets Hellraiser fanfic with great Clive Barker emulation still exists and is backed up on archive.org: literotica.com/s/the-hellbound

Genie: You have ONE WISH.

Me: Alright, I have one, but it's very detailed.
Genie: As long as it is only one wish, you're allowed to spend as much time as you want detailing it.

Me: Alright, here we go. *Grabs notebook and takes a deep breath* The key words MUST, MUST NOT, REQUIRED, SHALL, SHALL NOT, SHOULD, SHOULD NOT, RECOMMENDED, MAY, and OPTIONAL are to be interpreted as described in [RFC2119].

Genie: Wait, is that...?

Me: *Flips notebook* Chapter 1. Preamble.

So follow up on this: Phone interview happened. Guy giving the interview has only been there a year and everyone on the team hasn't been there much longer. Ran the interview like normal into the questions time, starting with "so what's the culture like?" and basically found out that they are a flat company kinda like Steam. "Oh, so do you have a union?" Pause. "Um, no we don't have a union. " "Oh cool, is there any LGBTQ organizations there." "Um..."

So I still have an interview scheduled with them but now instead of just feeling out cost benefit analysis of respective salaries and benefits packages while Being Clever, I get to Have Fun instead.

work/interview related, anti-lgbtq practices 

So over the weekend I got contacted by a head hunter for a senior position in my field offering about 5% more than I'm currently making. Figure why not give it a try, put in for it and get told the client name. After sorting through a few different buyouts and mergers and doing some pre-interview research, today is when I realize this is the same place that fired a number of my friends in 2016 for forming a LGBTQ group at work.

You know what's fun? Accidentally hitting the favorite button instead of the show more on CWs.

All other factors being equal, would you rather eat at a restaurant with a pun-based name or an alliterative name?
