If I were the justice system in 2019, I’d just simply just abolish all lawyers. 🤣

If I were a kid today I’d simply wear my pants inside out. You can tell I’m an old because I do not.

If I were a high energy particle physicist I’d simply invent Mr. Fusion already. It’s 2019 and I don’t have a cute, tiny home fusion generator that eats ordinary household garbage for fuel yet. How hard can that be? 🤣

If I were Marvin Barry I’d simply not call up my cousin, and instead steal Johnny B. Goode for myself.

Doc should have simply better isolated the time circuits from the DeLorean’s 12-Volt battery circuits. Would have likely had fewer starter issues after time jumps that way.

Fundraising item on display at work (🤬) 

Saw a fundraiser for “American Heritage Girls” at work. Figured it was a white nationalist org from the name. Wikipedia kind of confirms that. Right-wing reaction to Girl Scouts, with a freshly created Trails Life Boys beside them. Because why should kids learn to be tolerant of fellow gay and transgender kids outside of the classroom.

Gross.

Too bad there’s not a work appropriate way to call out bigotry where I see it, because that would get real GSA ban

My nose has been reminded tonight that this is the month the big industrial pig slaughterhouse ramps up to meet holiday demand from Thanksgiving through New Years.

VB6 👻 

Looking up answers to VB6 things just makes me feel dumber by proxy. A 2004 commenter referred to the 18th century English word “asynchronous” as “clever Microsoft jargon” as if this word was amazingly confusing and invented on the spot for just this one use case. ☠️

This graveyard is haunted by idiots.

VB6 👻 

The further we get past the EOL for Windows XP, the more insufferable building and debugging VB6 gets. “Just have it launch the new app” they asked naively. Sure, but the new app doesn’t run in an XP virtual machine because Chromium (rightfully!) stopped supporting XP, so build it and pray it works, I guess? Even more Rube Goldberg machine to deliver EXEs from the VM to the main machine for testing?

This so much fun~ 👻

ARGH. I just want to watch the last twenty minutes of this episode. I’ve now wasted 20 minutes on ads I’ve already seen dozens of times tonight. 🔥🔥🔥

AT&T is bad at streaming 

I love it when The CW app just gets confused and loops the same section of the show over and over including the ads and you have to fast forward to the next section but then it forces the same ads again.

I miss when The CW would cross post to Hulu so much.

Punchline: Can’t wait for all those new bugs when HBO Max launches. There’s no way AT&T won’t fail. 🤣 I won’t pay for it, but look forward to reading the horror stories.
