Don’t ya have dam/water generators
I'm sure we have, but our government thought it a great idea to dismantle our nuclear power plants which stood for most of the power and went all in on wind turbines... which didn't turn out great a few months ago when we had hardly any wind for a long time.

It's election time now, so our current leading social democrats will prob be f***ed lol

Have you ever been putting on your pants and got your toe nail stuck on the stitching on the inside of your pants?
Well your boy has.

Maybe it's time to trim my nails?

This leads to a second random thought.
Do you guys put your socks on before you put on your pants or after?

Always fun to get a reminder this site exists thanks to me leaving email notifications for private messages on. Almost ten years of this site being around is bonkers.

We really don't exist, we're just an Elon Musk simulation running on an equal number of PS5s and XSXs to see which is more powerful.

So, after 24 years I finally posted out of my current job. Same company, actually same overall division, but getting out from under a bad situation.

The job is all IT security which I'd love to get into, but know little about. That major didn't even exist when I was in school.

The great thing is, there's an unwritten rule where people let the bosses know if anyone applies for another job internally so I know they know by now.

I've been complaining to them since 2019, and cut them some slack because of covid, but years later and nothing changes. The sad thing is the overall boss can crush anything, so I fear I'll just never hear back.

So, now it is either get a new job that really interests me, or get stuck in the same old grind, now with managers who now see me as "disloyal".

Update on this. By coincidence, I was in a meeting with just my current boss, and who would be my future boss last week. Future boss asked my boss to stay on the zoom call to "talk to him about something". 2 job openings in the same department that I've worked in for decades, and a lateral move, and not so much as a response?

I meet with my boss tomorrow and I'm flat out telling him that I'm looking to get out. I'm 90% sure they already know and I'm not going anywhere.
