    simultaneously one of the most excruciating and hilarious listening experiences of my life

    straight lost it watching him earnestly mouth the words to an autotuned Attenborough

    I'm listening to some of this stuff right now and can't believe it. This is next level comedy material that I need to be throwing on now in funny ass situations.

    I feel like I sort of know that sort of dweeb. Just reading through some of the YouTube comments on these videos is painful. A bunch of science bros talking about how "we need to explore the universe because, hey, after all man, the stars are talking to us." I have never and hopefully will never think that the stars are talking to me without the assistance of some really powerful hallucinogenic substances.

    all interviews are preliminary and for jobs located on the other side of the country so they are all phone interviews.

    So yes, different suits for each.

    a few nights ago at work we had an IT meltdown which necessitated me contacting the developer in France. we couldn't do anything until he fixed the problem so I told everybody to chill out for a bit.

    it turned out that he was actually in London, in a hotel just around the corner so he came into the office....without telling me.

    the scene he walked in on:

    mad Danny was doing keepie-ups with his top off (Danny looks like a reject from 90's pop sensations East 17)

    a tiny Sri Lankan girl was rolling an improbably large bifta at her desk

    the three animals who do our scanning were snorting lines, drinking whisky and shouting at each other whilst playing cards

    big gay ray was asleep on the couch

    and this was blaring out of the stereo:




    i told him we run a tight ship.

    he was a bit confused but didn't seem bothered by any of it.

    i'm coming round on the French.

    10+ years of delivering results has afforded me a degree of autonomy.

    that said, its pretty tame these days compared to the pre-digital bacchanalia that predominated when I first did nights 14 years ago.

    I barely understand what you're saying here but I am pretty confident it is one of the finer posts this board has ever seen.

    Pozz'd. And just pozzing all of your shit this morning just because you're putting me in a really good mood despite my current lack of sleep.

    I had $5k taken out of my year end bonus from taxes.

    Fuck the US. No wonder I'm anti-American, anti-capitalism and will never vote again.
