It doesn't help that I'm fairly sure that when the professor said the very first problem we need to do is "Match strings that contain one, and only one, of this character", that was probably bullshit. Figuring out how to write "^[^']*'[^']*\n" was a learning experience, I'll grant, but if that's what we were supposed to do then the learning curve in this class has increased outrageously.

EDIT: Note that it's a book problem, and the wording in the book indicated no such complexity. It was just "match strings containing this character." That's what I meant by bullshit, rather than merely surprisingly evil.

EDIT: I continue to learn. It should actually be ^[^']*'[^']*$
Regex is incredibly powerful, and everything related to programming seems to be on a sliding scale between "Easy to use" and "Powerful".

My rage is the horrible way the US international keyboard handles double and single quotes ALONGSIDE umlauts and accent graves. Who the fuck thought it would be a good idea to put four completely different symbols on the same key. I dont want to have to hit space every time I want to type a double or single quote. Space is pressed between words, not in the middle of a word and generally not twice in a row.

Knowing Belgium, everyone will vote for themselves out of mistrust for anyone else, and some kind of weird direct democracy coalition will need to be formed from 11 million or so individuals.

For the past umpteen years, my parents have told me to put things where I'll remember them.

You get into the habit of it, then they start moving the things for no discernible reason.

It's as if they don't think I'll ever need my phone. Or wallet. Fly swatters, console controllers, spare change, keys...

Yes. So much sense in putting things where you'll remember when they FUCKING WON'T STAY THERE.
My old roommate would rearrange the apartment every week, including the kitchen. Sometimes the trash was under the sink, sometimes it was under the bar divider, sometimes it was way over in a corner behind a shoji screen. Just when I would get used to where to put my trash, the trash can would move again. It was infuriating.

yeeeeuuppp that's about the point I would start setting people on fire

Or take the ruddy trash can from them. They obviously cannot handle the responsibility of waste disposal receptacles.

I like being able to walk through my house in the dark with my eyes closed and not trip over something that wasn't there last month yesterday.

Oh yea, that too. Many a bruised shin and stubbed toe from running into crap that wasn't there 5 hours ago.

Depending on your view, a message touching and emotional, or a hypocritical piece of crap.
I'm leaning on the latter. (No such thing as moderation there?)
Hypocritical? How so? An alcoholic can still point out others drinking themselves to death are drinking themselves to death.

I am of the opinion that this is EPIC I LIKE IT UPBOAT

I think my first attempt at rectifying the circumstance would be to buy a few more of those little, cheapo $4 trashcans and placing one in each location. :P

That said yeah, I hate it when people rearrange stuff at random (barring organizing things, which I do occasionally when they've deteriorated too far).

It looks like I'm not the only person getting screwed by their employer. My sister's job seems to be refusing to pay her.

That's always fun.

I remember when an employer asked us all to hold off till Monday on cashing our paychecks (prior to direct deposit). I think most us began shopping our resumes around that afternoon.

What makes it even better is that she recently injured herself on the job, and then was forced to do heavy lifting(which caused the injury) despite strict doctor's orders not to.

Thats why you bolt stuff to the ground, obviously.
