As perfect a Thursday 054

“Good part, Kup! Tell Swoop good part!”

Though said many times many ways, I continue to find particularly repugnant those who seek to use a disaster to speak about climate change, this time a governor who prioritized High-Speed Rail over fixing infrastructure:

Southern California’s fire devastation is ‘the new normal,’ Gov. Brown says

“And now, little children, abide in him, so that when he appears we may have confidence and not shrink from him in shame at his coming. (1 John 2:28)”

Humor vampirism 033

My friend, with whom I became friends when he made me an admin of his Pony page, also added me to a group for Rooster Teeth, an animation studio which produced Red vs Blue and RWBY among others. My friend is not the author of the following note.

Thankfully, someone in the thread explained the initialism M.D.B. in plain language; a post where one is given a hypothetical situation wherein one is offered a Million Dollars But one must tolerate an undesirable condition or situation as part of the wager:

“IMPORTANT ADMIN MDB POST RULING, PLEASE READ

Hey folks! To add to the post Gavin made, I just want to shed a little more light on the issue of the MDB posts.

Some of you will remember a while ago we had an issue arise where people were upset with lewd RWBY posts. We ended up with a divided community and had an overwhelming amount of people messaging us saying they were uncomfortable with the posts and that they were making them no longer wish to participate in the group. This is obviously something we never, ever want to be the case, and we ended up having to make a very hard ruling to fix the issue. We’re in a similar situation now.

Every year when a new season of MDB starts, scenario posts tend to flood the group. These are all well and good, and we 100% support this kind of community-building activity. However, there is an immense issue with them considering Facebook’s algorithm for relevant posts. Basically, the most active posts will be the posts that are featured most and have an overwhelmingly higher chance to be featured outside of the group. This can cause MDB posts to appear incredibly spammy and makes it so that other content doesn’t appear as often. This is a shortcoming on Facebook’s part really, but it’s, unfortunately, one we have to deal with as part of the platform.

To try and rectify this, I’ll be making a master post for all MDB content moving forward. It will be the stickied post for the duration of this season of MDB, and we ask that any scenarios you would like to present to the group be posted on that post. We will be deleting any MDB content posted outside of that post, and I will do my best to try to copy/paste scenarios posted outside of that post to the comments of the master post for discussion, and tag the original poster.

Thank you all so much for your fantastic feedback and criticisms. Please never hesitate to message me with questions, and have a fantastic day!

Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked,

he meditates day and night. (Psalms 1:1-3)
He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season,

Wednesday, someone bothered me too early, so I lost sleep, got nothing else done, was late to work after … a new Samsung Galaxy:

Ah, geez. Rick (the following Japanese theme song is rather raucous), “Kill Me, Baby; Baby, please kill me,” while I concede to a refreshing naivete (seriously, ‘skunkweed’ was something I had never heard of nor smelled until I was standing outside my twentieth high school reunion), I have moments of painful awkwardness which I frequently overthink later, especially when talking at the girl I like.

Because of where I work and the nature of the work, I cannot mention anyone with whom I work, “The names have been changed to protect the innocent,” so The Girl Next Door, as confusing as that is, literally sits next to me and I have spoken to her awkwardly and recently two times in as many months.

Stale zaniness 063,” where I was concerned about when seating would be rearranged, was also a day I suggested that I could put a larger pony at desk (I make no secret about my affinity for My Little Pony) so she could find my new location. In fact, I realize she is not likely to seek me out and I start nearly all of our converstaions.

The second time was Tuesday night. Besides Being Scott Malkinson,
I didn’t sleep well, had soda instead of coffee, so I was tired and out of sorts.

While I was in training, she broke up with someone at work and cried for three days, according to my colleagues. She has since found someone new and she and her former boyfriend had a nice conversation.
I asked deliriously, “So are you two are a thing?”
“What, friends?”

In fact, I had forgotten that he has had a new girlfriend for months,
then I apologized, labeling my inquiry, “cringy,”
so “Kill Me, Baby; Baby, please kill me.”
