Our terrible work VPN refused to work at all on Monday and some of Tuesday. Every couple of days it locks my account in the domain as if I’d entered a couple wrong passwords despite it isn’t supposed to be caching credentials. Our IT knows this is such a problem because they added a script to unlock accounts after 15 minutes. Reporting all this time this shit is costing me on my time sheet every week. Security theater at its miserable finest. 🤬

I believe Kermit was replaced by his Fargo twin. I don’t know why a frog would grow up in Minnesota but after the Siberian cousin in Most Wanted I cannot believe it was for a good reason that did not involve wood chippers and pregnant small town cops with at least a few Coen brothers twists.
Iron Man, Jon Favreau, The Mandalorian
Before Iron Man, a lot of people told Marvel that it was insane to try to do a movie of a helmeted and armored character and show character emotions. Those critics were amazed by how well simple things like the “face cams” worked (though Marvel’s comics had decades of that kind of stuff).
The Mandalorian is just Favreau showing off, right? Bet Favreau wishes he could screen it for some of those early detractors.
@taweret The nativity scene you have been asking for (found in the FB mines):
Downtown driving snark
Hi, welcome to downtown. We have a regular street grid. You don’t have to cross four lanes in a single block to turn, and hold up everyone behind you by taking up three lanes at once. You can afford to go an extra block or five. This isn’t an interstate with four miles to the next stop.
