I didn't say that mountains are old, just that looking at one might instil something approaching the proper level of humility. ;P

Carried out by coal companies in the US, because of course it is.

Literally justified by the argument "This results in profit".

EDIT: It DOES say that they are required to basically put the mountaintop back when they're done. I'm sure that goes without a hitch ecologically. /sarcasm

I just had to get my password for a mandatory (but almost entirely useless, due to complexity and non-terrible alternatives) in-house (but in the house of another financially separate) billing database reset at work. ~1 hour, partly because I called the wrong help desk, partly because only some of the password requirements are publicly documented, and only some of those are correct (it lists needed 3 of the 4: uppercase, lowercase, symbol, and number. I experimentally determined that the one not required is lowercase, the other 3 are always required).

Then I had to reset all Internet Exploder (because of course such a great program can only function in IE) settings before it would accept my new password, which requires restarting my work computer (>10 minute process sometimes).

Also, I have to be at work an hour late, because my apartment's janky wiring means my alarm clock gets reset randomly ~12 times/year, and power is frequently out long enough that a battery won't keep the time. At least I got to sleep in, and have a fridge full of beer waiting at home.

Not quite, they dug underground and built over it, instead of just making a big hole. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Centralia_mine_fire
So about 4.5 hours of productive time lost, because I've used up my daily allotment of give a shit.

I do not doubt that somewhere there are bears in the oft-thought-safe-but-actually-not inside too.

Are you saying there are bears hiding... somewhere in the nebulous gray area that is right in the middle of the door frame, where it is neither inside nor outside?!
Yeah... if the bears come any closer than that, say to within a closed pantry with no one inside to observe, then they get shooed away by the Faceless Old Woman that Secretly Lives in Your Home.

I want to remind people that missionaries would show 60s quality movies to tribals and 3rd world parties and they acted like the movie was real.  Like, whatever was shown was fact, it had just happened.  Right there, on the tv.  The one that's right there, in front of them.  We just saw this happen, how can you say it didnt?

Found out today that a particular minipet in an online game bothers some people because they see it as the needless suffering of an animal.

For those who don't know a minipet is a little small creature that follows around your character in online games.  They typically are not interact-able (outside of a few cosmetic commands in rare cases) and are purely decoration.  I typically don't use them, as I find them distracting, but I did find one I liked in a game I played.

The Krytan Floppy fish.  It's basically a fish, it flops around on the ground behind your character, doing things you would typically expect of a large bass out of water.  The game includes swimming, and when following you in water it swims normally.  I like it because it is just absurd enough, and my character essentially being a giant 10 foot tall cat would probably like having a portable food source.

I was told I was a bad person because even with it not being real it glorifies the suffering of a living creature and I should not use it.  They were legit mad at me.

WTF people,
1) it's a fish. It is not intelligent even by animal standards. 
2) From what I can understand of it's backstory it's magically enhanced to be able to survive out of water, it just has no limbs thus it has to flop around to move.
3) The lake it is from in canon is no longer a lake due to plot reasons, and it would have airdrowned if it wasn't made into a minipet.
4) There is no leash or anything on any of these minipets so they can be implied that they are following the character willingly.
5) this is a game where there are special death animations by killing things with elemental damage like burning or electrocution.  This includes helpless ambient critters like bunnies.
And finally 6) It's a game none of this is real!


-------
@Kagus  So what you are telling me is that if I were to somehow go back in time 2 weeks I could live in a mansion for a little over a dollar a year?  At that price I could probably pay someone to translate the local language into English for me and still come out on top.

I assume you set your computer's calander back 2 weeks and applied for the place? :P

EDIT: The next post made me realize the square footage.  I only saw the number of bedrooms.  I would be a bad home buyer.
