    The Funny Maths Thread.. which sometimes contains mildly amusing pictures

    I thought the funny part was the guy on the right obviously perving out to the woman with the bottle. Yes?

    The Grocery Store Checkout Thread

    Don't try to have small talk with someone whose job requires that they process people through their queue quickly. Go for the very direct approach: "I think you are stunningly beautiful and would love to take you out sometime. I'm going to write my number down and give it to you. If you'd like...

    The "Things that annoy me" thread

    Or just as bad: companies who try to offer "helpful" advice so you won't use their phone center. "Did you know you can get help online? Just visit att.com and click the "live assistance" button." No, I fucking can't, because you provide my fucking internet connection, which doesn't fucking...

    The lack of employment/Laid off/Thread

    Anyone in the biological sciences, my company (specifically the Austin site) is filling about 25 positions as the result of a site shutdown in California. Everything from manufacturing to planning to management. An associates' degree is enough for some of the positions. PM me if interested.

    America hangs it head in shame again (fat content inside)

    So untrue. Bananas are 44 cents a pound at most grocery stores. It just doesn't get any cheaper than that. Really, it is all about how lazy you are. When I am scrounging the bottom of my bank account, I have to go to the grocery store about every 3 days. This is because the cheapest thing in...

    The "Things that annoy me" thread

    ^Even worse: "Hi, can I speak to Bill?" "No, sorry, there's no Bill here. I think you have the wrong number." "But this is the number he gave me!" I can't help that! Yell at Bill!

    The "Things that annoy me" thread

    I absolutely agree with you about atheism. Just because I don't ascribe the awe and beauty of the universe to some daddy figure in the sky doesn't mean I don't see it as awesome and beautiful. In fact, I probably see more awe and beauty in it, because I understand it better, because I constantly...

    Do you guys give blood?

    My other issue with the Red Cross is that they harass people during drives. They used to set up in the building I worked in at university. Because I'd had so many problems giving with them I didn't want to give during their drives, but they would pester me four times a day (going to work, going...

    I agree both that it is much better, and that you need to cut it shorter. Forget paying for a haircut, you can do it yourself or find someone who can, most likely. It needs to be short enough that it doesn't touch your collar in the back, your ears on the sides, and your eyebrows in the front...

    Do you guys give blood?

    I don't know if I mentioned this here or not, but the quality of the blood donation experience depends a lot on the phlebotomist. I won't give to the Red Cross anymore because their people were so bad at finding my veins and observing me properly. After 3 consecutive botched attempts (not on the...

    No no, you're free to say whatever you like about whoever isn't my girlfriend. I am faithful. :)

    The "Things that annoy me" thread

    I think this may be crossing from "annoyance" to "you might get murdered if you keep that up": people who flick their cigarettes out of their cars when the state is mostly on fire. Honestly, are they unaware of how wildfires start? Do they not realize they're the reason Austin is burning...

    Hey! You be nice to my future girlfriend!

    The "Things that annoy me" thread

    The ren faires here have mostly given up on trying to be representations of the actual Renaissance and instead have embraced what they actually are: fantasy dress-up playgrounds for dorks. I am a big fan of this because the food is better and they've stopped pricing things in ? and started...
