I went to the grocery store with my boyfriend early this morning and as we were leaving, this older lady pulls up and swings her legs out of the car, asks my boyfriend for our cart so she can use it. I glance at her legs and they're both mega-swollen, chronic heart problems or vascular issues, and I nod him over. She literally can't get out of the car without a cart to lean on.

She thanks us by, in front of me, a woman, telling us that men are the only people who can get these kinds of things done and if she wants someone with intelligence, it's always going to be a man. She can ask a man 2 questions and he'll answer them immediately because he knows the answer, while a woman asked the same questions will still be telling her about her new boyfriend. Oh and also, women are liars and thieves. They'll lie to you and steal your money. How does she know? Because she's a woman of course. At this point my boyfriend is fully nodding and pointing to me, feeding the troll, so I rolled my eyes and took him by the arm to go back to the car. Clearly the woman was not going to stop ranting.

A homeless person approached us asking for change on the roughly 10 step walk back to the car. I felt like I was at the grocery store in the student ghetto at 11 pm on Saturday night, not the nice one in the suburbs at 8 am on Saturday morning :lol: .

There's an hierarchy of Smiths. Ghetto Smiths at Yale is at the bottom, but there are others to watch out for.

It was the good Smiths in RR though! I've lived in either the war zone or student ghetto for the last 2.5 years and have become aware of the hierarchy of stores, with the Wal-Mart on Central and Zuni being the lowest you can go I'd think.

Oh man, the Rio Rancho one can turn into a fucking zoo sometimes. Most of the time it's 99% crotchety old ladies (which is why we call it Granny Smiths), but Rio Rancho has an underbelly. I think the "nice" one is the one on Carlisle across from the Whole Foods. I used to go to the one on Lomas where that girl got kidnapped that one time.

The Zuni Wal-Mart is an interesting one. I used to shop there late sometimes before they decided there was just too much criminal activity going on to keep it open at night. Then I tried the Menaul one, which didn't seem any better or worse to me. But if you want a tame Wal-Mart experience, you can always just go to the one on Wyoming.

Parking lot weirdos is part of the Albuquerque experience, unless you make the Faustian bargain of pleasant shoppers in exchange for intolerable cashier lines by going to Sprouts.

Speaking of markets, yesterday I went to a farmer’s market far from where I live so I could buy these strawberries I’ve been told are some of the sweetest in the US. They’re called Harry’s Berries. I was waiting in the hot sun for almost 20 minutes before I finally got in and they told me the strawberries were sold out in half an hour after they opened. :madred: :cry:

I always make sure to shave all my berries before putting them in my mouth. :oface:




The #FreeBritney crowd is delusional. They seriously have no clue about how a conservatorship is even established and create these fantastical conspiracy theories about her situation. This guy lays out a really nice overview of conservatorships and the likely role it plays in her life.



I get the feeling a lot of people just think that the judge just reads tea leaves and bases their decision on whatever the dad says. Like, how does one, as an adult, even think that’s how the law works? :facepalm2:

Online, in the realms of companies run by SJWs, even celebrated author-journalists can no longer speak the truth to the oldest magazine in the world if it hurts some fattys' feelings.

Having issues with my friends and cps. My friends girlfriend has the kids at her sisters. Apparently they are having a hard time taking care of the oldest who is special needs and plans on having the kids split up. That's not fair to him or the other two. They ended up sending him to the cps agency WITHOUT TELLING MY FRIENDS. Hes been there for two days. Just him... not his brother and sister. The kid is more than likely to be scared on top of being taken from the home. probably thinks no one wants him and shit. We're trying to send all 3 of them to my friends aunt and uncle... at least the oldest will be there.

I don't know who designed the gameplay of the "Desmond's Journey" segments of Assassin's Creed: Revelations, or who then decided the Lost Archive DLC should just be more of that, or who then designed the levels of said DLC, or who then made the call that two trophies from said DLC should be only achievable by getting through particularly tricky segments of these badly-designed levels without ever once failing in any way.

But if I ever find out I will hound them to the ends of the fucking Earth to kill them.

It's not a great endorsement of your ability as a game designer that the majority of the people to earn one of the aforementioned 2 trophies seem to have only done it by having to exploit glitches in the world geometry to escape the shit level you actually designed in favour of a much easier method that is actually achievable .

The last DLC trophy that I need so I can ignore this stupid bullshit and never think about it ever again is driving me to fucking homicidal rage.

Identity politics and the propensity towards negativity in the media.

Surely, nice things happen right? Surely we aren't all obsessing over our skin tone, our genitalia or whether we like the colours blue or red? We could hear about some of those nice things, once in a while atleast? Not talk about the things that set us apart, occasionally maybe?

It's probably asking too much.

Can't we all just get along and smash the capitalist system? Once we've retaken the commons, we can go back to hating one another. Authentically hating on our fellows for the first time in generations! It'll be great. :P
