    My pet peeve today is myself.

    How is it I'm looking at an article on Charlie Fishers passing, going - I know him! And it's only now I learn who he was?

    Amazing guy - feels really wierd that even a couple years ago (ok pushing 5) I ran into him downtown, he came over and said hi, remembered my name - reminded me of the multiple times I'd done work for him (actually always his wife I think) in multiple capacities.



    I gotta learn people skills FFS.

    supposedly serious business people who have spelling errors or those latin gibberish filler text on their website. Like come-fucking-on, I don't expect you to be a web wizard, but at least be self-aware enough to hire someone to proofread your shit and build a functional website, it's not that expensive.

    Public Mobile is the best, just like Phil Collins' mullet.

    I’m surprised he didn’t keep it around in case he ever wants to make more than 1 steak at a time.

    He's not responding. Either he is friends off with you or he is out warming up the grill to get it hot enough for lunch time.

    Have confirmed that 2 steaks fit on that grill. Not sure about 3, but it's not like I'm inviting anyone over for steak anyway.

    Must take a long time to cook steaks when you need to cook one on your grill and cook the other on your neighbour’s.

    Sounds like friends off if I have ever heard it.

    Why don't people push the button to activate those big flashing pedestrian lights at the crossing? I don't get it? You look left, right, wait for cars to cross etc. but you don't push the button?

    I have seen some close calls, one car stops and the other keeps going and slams on brakes for a scare when they see people in the crosswalk but had they hit that button then for sure that 2nd vehicle will slow down as you just do seeing flashing lights. Idk.

    Because people's normal reaction to flashing yellow now seems to be to speed up and close their eyes?

    I don't use the flashy lights in pedestrian crossing because that's how I have close calls of the squishy kind. It's safer to pretend it's uncontrolled.

    I typically wait to push the button for a clearing in traffic. I don't mind waiting for a break if I can see it.

    You can still press the button and pretend it's uncontrolled, lol.

    See that's the problem, about a third stop. Then you have one other try to pass (right or left of stopped, sometimes on sidewalk) but the speeds are just higher and people are just being stupider.

    At least with the lights off they simply keep their nose in their phone and rely on the cars collision avoidance not to ram into the car in front and they're much more predictable

    Someone was obviously eating black licorice while baking my store bought bagel, and now I want to throw up.

    Edit: Apparently an herb called anise tastes like black liqorice, and thats likely what it was. I still want to throw up though. Not that I dont enjoy eating anise, I just dont like black licorice.

    How do you stop long talkers? Or people who loves telling stories and won't get to the point?

    The benefit of masks is not known at this time. But we do know it is some non-trivial amount more than zero.

    We also know that the cost of mask use is, essentially, zero.

    So the cost:benefit of mask use is approaching infinity. I'll take that every time. And every time I see someone without a mask, I think they are stupid.
