For random (but non-political) comments and discussion. So, if you have something happen in your life that is humorous or ridiculous, this is the place to share it. Shower thoughts? Check. Found a good pun? Lay it on us.

20 hours without food and counting...

If I don't get a break here soon, I'll leave my workplace to hunt vermin.

Not to mention the antimatter lightbulb stash Artlav left us a few months back for when we really need to scour the place out.

Speaking of which, time to order some more... we've only got three left.

Huh... my first reaction would have been to shout "GREEN FLAME!!", but I'm not sure there's anybody on this board that's enough into D&D to get the reference...

I have a few days off. Was planning to go out biking, but, although the weather is fine, it's still quite cold. So I did what any responsible adult would do...stayed inside and played The Witcher 3. That game is incredibly thick. you can spend hours just for a few quests. And just following the main storyline doesn't really work because you soon find yourself outlevelled, so doing the small stuff really matters. For some reason it reminds me of Gothic (before the abomination called Arcania, which wasn't really Gothic anymore), expecially with the open-ended quests. But then again , Gothic had like three possible endings, this one has perhaps a dozen or more, depending on how you branch out your choices.
Though, to my excuse, the rear hub of the bike makes a weird vibration when freewheeling and I'm too lazy to check it out or change it.

Code:
stupid.i:1:2: error: invalid preprocessing directive #!
 #!/usr/bin/gcc -o stupid
  ^
Drat! gcc rejects the hashbang as a preprocessing directive. This bit of useless silliness would have been so much funnier if it had worked.

A friend of mine shared this with me, and I figured it'd be of interest to some folks here...

Jeff "Skunk" Baxter has earned eight platinum records in a music career that started in the 1960s, and he has received numerous security clearances and contracting jobs since the 1980s as a self-taught expert on missile-defense and counterterrorism.
...
The big shift came in 1994.
Inspired by a friend's work on an op-ed about NATO, Baxter sat down and punched out a five-page paper on the Aegis ship-based antiaircraft missile system, arguing it could be converted to a missile-defense system.
So... this is the person who came up with the basic concept of Aegis Ashore.
Learn something new every day.
