OK. I can see how that happened since ctrl+v is what you press to stop current, but how do I disable that option? I can't figure it out.

The only advice I can give you without me sitting down in front of you machine myself is for you to try harder.

I had to go to options, preferences, then go to playlist and de-select 'Manual Playlist Advance.'

So I hang out with my friends on the weekends, and I love them, but they are not so smart sometimes.  They've got a high power bill that they can barely afford to pay.  For the past few weekends, we've all been sitting around in sweatshirts and wrapped up in blankets, but they haven't turned off the window units yet.  They're on all the time.  I've even mentioned it, just on the off chance that it hadn't occurred to them, but to no avail.  Seriously, more than once we've all been sitting around the living room in sweatshirts and wrapped in blankets talking about their money troubles, and I just want to shake them!

Well, I haven't said "Turn off your air conditioners" because it's not my house, but I have said things like "Hey, we're all cold.  Why don't we turn off the air conditioners?"  Or sometimes when we're all leaving, "Since we're all leaving, aren't you guys going to turn off the air conditioners?  You were just complaining about the power bill, I know that would help."  But no.  Apparently, they're just going to keep all three of them running until it's time to turn on the space heaters.

i'm still a little unclear. what do they say when you tell them this? do they just grunt? do they stay silent? am i the only person who expects a reasonable response to things like that?

i mean, i know it's not your house, but if it were me i would call them idiots repeatedly until they expended the energy to turn the goddamn knob. friends don't let friends be retards.

Usually it's something along the lines of "Ehhh," "I guess" or a shrug.  I think one of them actually did grunt once.  But again, it's not my house, so at that point, I just kind of shrug and keep on walkin'.  I mean, it's not something that hurts me, so if they want to keep doing that, whatever.

It is 2007. Why are things that have shoulderpads still made, and why do I let people convince me that it is a good idea to get/wear them to interviews? I look ridiculous. I look like a very tiny linebacker.

Me too, but I have the shoulders of a REAL MAN, so I always look like I'm wearing shoulder pads anyway.

But don't you then find that the shoulders look weird, like the upper body equivalent of an old lady who's just taken out her false teeth?

Oh, fuck. I have my last exam coming up in four hours (that leaves me with three hours before leaving the house) and it consists of a written and an oral part. The written part is a research design which I was supposed to write in advance and just bring along to the exam; the oral part is just your standard exam. I based the research design on my actual plans for a PhD project (with a blown-up part describing the methodological set-up), which means I wrote it down in a pretty short time the other night. Now, four hours before the exam, I look at the material again and it turns out I would have been supposed to also include a description of expected results. I have no such thing in my proposal. I am also seriously underprepared for my oral exam, so I have no time to make any changes either. Damn. Damn. Let's hope he doesn't notice?

Damn indeed - but even if he does notice, I'm sure the quality of the rest will make up for the honest mistake/omission. I'm rooting very hard for you, good luck!

Thanks!

Thing is, I don't think he thinks very much of the kind of research I'm doing here (because what would be the value of a sociological study that doesn't employ a single Chi-Square test?!), so I'm not so sure about that. I'm improvising a couple of paragraphs after all.

See, when my friends are complaining about their lack of money, I call them out on their bullshit. Oh, you're broke? Stop spending $100/month on cigarettes. Stop schlepping out $5 a day at Starbucks. Pay your goddamn bills on time and you won't have late fees. So when they would complain about high utility bills, I'd say "LISTEN FUCKERS TURN OFF THE A/C" or something.


Also, I am currently annoyed by the fact that I ate the last oatmeal chocolate chip cookie yesterday, because today I am totally craving one.

aglaya, seeing people do shit that dumb does kinda hurt me, so yeah, i'd take the heather route and fuckin' grad their hand and make them turn the knob.

because seriously, freezing, out of money, A/C on? what? how fucking dumb can you get?

"weee, let's, through sheer, unmitigated laziness, spend money we don't have to make ourselves uncomfortable! yaaaay!"

I think a lot of people are rather clueless about energy consumption. My brother's old roommate didn't understand why their electric bill was so high when he kept the thermostat a 68, but once my brother set it down to 78 or something, he was like "WHOA DUDE LOOK AT HOW MUCH LESS IT IS THIS MONTH."

Yeah, uh, people tend to lack a lot of common sense.

Google's Safesearch (which is always on at my workplace) seems to filter out the word "hardcore."  What the F?  "Hardcore" can refer to things other than hot, hot pornography, you know.

My good friend just went out and got Chinese symbols tattooed on her arms.  I think this is incredibly dumb, culturally insensitive and that it looks fucking stupid, but since it is already done I didn't tell her any of this.

Also her boyfriend got the same tattoo at the same time.

Sometimes I just want to shake her.

Oh, man.  Yeah, the post-tattoo "Should I tell them they look like an idiot?" moment.  A friend of mine got this incredibly dumb-looking sun-and-moon thing on his thigh during college.  He was hanging out with me and the rest of his high-school friends, and showed it to us: "Hey, guys, look what I got!  Awesome, right?"

We were all like, "NO.  NO.  You FUCKED IT UP.  That is AWFUL.  Your thigh looks like an AWFUL SCHOOLGIRL'S DOODLE.  For the REST OF YOUR LIFE."

My place of business is spending the next two years celebrating their hundreth anniversary.

No, really.  Two years.

And in addition to their budget for the celebratory things they're doing (which BTW is roughly 20 times my yearly income) they didn't pay people to set up the cocktail party we're having tomorrow night.  So, rather than go home from work, relax and then go to a nice cocktail party event, I am expected to just work at my desk from 7:30-9, then work at the club setting up the party from 9-5:30.  Then, the party itself is from 6-9.

I even used to kind of be excited about this.  I'm still excited about the swanky appetizers, at least.
