The Flood / Story Time: Ian's Wild Ride [super long blog]
« on: September 13, 2019, 01:46:57 PM »
Per Maverick and Das, I'm updating you all on the situation with that one girl that caused quite a bit of grief for me last year and what ultimately ended up happening since I haven't updated anyone on the matter since April of last year.

TL;DR: Bitch left our location and tried to get me fired on a lie. It fucking fails and she loses her dream job/location to me and now has to work around me every day knowing she lost.

EDIT: Never mind, it appears I was mistaken in thinking some people would have gotten over the fact that I failed to heed their advice and refuse to accept me admitting my mistake in ignoring them. You can't please everybody.

The Flood / The Popeye's chicken sandwich
« on: September 11, 2019, 01:19:36 PM »
I contemplated posting this in Serious but considering it's just fast fucking food of all things, and it's more of a blog/rant and I'll just be met with meme comments anyways I opted against doing so.

So for the past six months my roommates have been waging a war with each other over the dishes, I want absolutely no part in that and considering half the dishes """go missing""" I just eat out every day instead. Expensive? Very much so, I learned to appreciate dollar menus and meal deals. Unhealthy? You fucking know it, only eating once a day is probably whats staving off morbid obesity for me. But what's most annoying is when my lunch plans get ruined by fucking nothing.

I would go to Popeye's about once a week or so to get a 3-piece meal and some fries. It's like 6-7 bucks where I live so it's somewhat reasonable. However since they released that new chicken sandwich lines are out the door and the drive-thru line blocks parking spaces also, good luck getting inside and getting your order placed within the hour, even with numerous papers on the windows saying their out of the damn sandwich.

"Just go somewhere else" Well yeah, no fucking shit. I don't have time before work to wait an hour in line while hearing people bitch about why they don't have a very specific chicken patty for a sandwich. The problem is although I nuked my social media account following that bleeding cunt's behavior last year (it's okay, I got my payback) I've been noticing everywhere online recently shilling Popeye's out the ass for free and seeing renewed "Ch-ck-fil-A is garbage anyway" posts flooding the internet. Quite frankly, it's downright annoying and so blatantly obvious that an agenda is being pushed. Out of pure spite I've been regularly going to CFA and I would go more if it wasn't for the fact those homophobic cow-worshiping cultists are closed on Sundays.

The point of all this I guess, is: Have any of you actually had Popeye's chicken sandwich? Is it actually worth all the fucking hype and shilling that's being forced down the internet? Or is the media still butthurt that CFA exists and can print money just by existing?

The Flood / Positive Yugioh Feels
« on: September 08, 2019, 12:37:18 AM »
>When you buy a $20 box set and you end up pulling a $40 card you needed for your deck.

Spoiler

>When you get ANOTHER $20 box set and you pull the one card that's broken the meta in the span of only a few days.

Spoiler

Yugioh is the best it's been at since I got back into it. Other than the first card above, most "meta" and top tier cards are plummeting in price and that includes their rarity. A prismatic-secret rare copy of Sky Striker - Mobilize Engage! is only like six bucks on TCG player. This is great for me.

Now if only I had the courage to go to locals.

The Flood / Fuck Hurricane Dorian
« on: September 02, 2019, 10:56:53 AM »
It's literally going to hit NOWHERE near central FL yet every store and restaurant in the area has closed shop and abandoned ship. I can't have my usual All-you-can-eat wings Monday at Hooters with my friends because they've closed up for today and tomorrow. Grocery shopping? Lol fuck you we're closed. Out with friends? Get board games and flashlights and hold up in your room preparing for losing power (even though the last two storms hit us straight on and we didn't lose power). Want to do literally anything? Fucking ghost town.

Oh and fuck the obsessed media blowing this shit out of proportion here in FL. We have the toughest building codes in the nation and the damn thing does a hard right and wants to fuck over the Carolinas so stop fear mongering here in FL.

"B-But you're going to get one of the heavy rain bands!"

Fuck you, you know what we call that? Tuesday is what we call that.

The Flood / AMA Finally got my promotion
« on: July 27, 2019, 07:56:26 PM »


After ferociously fighting for two and a half years and a lot of hard work, I finally got full time coordinator (team lead/assistant manager). I'm working in Magic Kingdom proper, in Fantasyland. Some things to note:

-By beginning of next year I should be making $16.50 an hour.
-Gender ratio in my new location is funny, including me and my leaders it's 21 males and 243 females.
-My costume/uniform is the silliest looking thing on Earth.
-I'm now in a stronger position to apply for manager/leadership in the future.

AMA I guess.

The Flood / I got another transfer (blog)
« on: May 31, 2019, 10:25:06 AM »
I'm moving to Magic Kingdom, into the park proper. Still retail but I'm full time now so I finally get benefits and and I can bid for what days off and what kind of hours I want. I'm going to definitely be shooting for Tuesday/Wednesday off and to work nights. Still waiting on a transfer effective date.

Came at a pretty awkward time, though not that it's not welcome. Things at the resort have pretty much gone nuclear and I need to get away from all the sociopaths that I currently work with. I did interview for Fantasyland a few days ago and I'm still hoping I get call from them cause that'd be a higher pay rate.

Gaming / WoW Classic "bugs" and Blizz response
« on: May 19, 2019, 07:27:06 PM »
Several Zoomers are reporting bugs in WoW classic that are not in fact bugs, but normal features working as intended.

Quote
As we’ve discussed before, the nature of WoW Classic sometimes invokes different memories for different players, and this leads to certain misconceptions for some about what is or isn’t working as intended.

The following is a list of commonly-reported gameplay in WoW Classic that is not actually a bug, and is working as we expect it to:

Tauren’s hitboxes and their melee reach is slightly larger than other races.
Being critically struck while using /sit to sit does not cause abilities like Enrage, Blood Craze, and Reckoning to activate.
Using the “Automatic Quest Tracking” option does not auto-track newly accepted quests. (It instead will start to track an existing quest once progress towards an objective is started.)
Warrior health Regeneration is working at the expected rate.
Quests objectives and points of interests are not tracked on the map or minimap.
Completed quests are marked on the minimap with a dot. (and not a “?”)
Feared players and NPCs run fast.
Standing on top of other players while facing away allows spells and attacks to be used.
Creature respawn rates are much slower than in Battle for Azeroth.
NPCs which offer multiple quests may inconsistently display them as a dot or a “!” on the available quests list. They were inconsistent in 1.12, and we’ve reproduced the exact inconsistency they had back then.
Quests that are too low level for do not show up as a “!” in the game world.
Available quests do not display a “!” on the minimap.
On level up, the message: “Your skill in Protection increased to 15” was added in 1.12.1, and we’re intending to keep that.
We appreciate all of your feedback!

You think you do, but you don't.

The Flood / Knowledge of The NBA
« on: May 06, 2019, 10:27:22 AM »
So I have an interview on Wednesday for The NBA Experience, some new attraction opening up at Disney Springs to replace Quest. However I have resigned this interview to be practice for another one I have in two weeks for Star Wars Land. I would still like this one to go well though, because a full time job is a full time job and there's no guarantee that the Star Wars one is going to work out even if I can show them I have extensive knowledge of the IP. My only problem is I don't have any knowledge of the NBA at all and while I can just look up basic stuff with simple Google searches, they're probably going to want more in depth/personal opinions on the subject.

What are some things you guys know/opinions you all have on the NBA?

The Flood / I grew out a beard and now I have to shave it
« on: September 24, 2018, 11:48:33 PM »
My beard is full enough for work but hardly full enough for a real "professional" look and I got a call for another promotion interview on Wednesday, meaning if I want to look good for the interview I have to chop the whole thing off after I spent the last two weeks growing it out.

Console me.

Serious / Chipotle having ANOTHER illness outbreak
« on: August 03, 2018, 06:28:43 PM »
https://www.businessinsider.com/chipotle-illness-outbreak-health-officials-find-contamination-risks-2018-8

Quote
Health officials have inspected three Chipotle restaurants in Powell, Ohio, following reports from customers who said they got sick after eating at the restaurants.

In two of the restaurants, inspectors found boxes of raw chicken "leaning" on other packaged foods, according to health records.

The violations come as Chipotle has spent millions of dollars on measures to improve food safety.

The Delaware General Health District on Thursday found "boxes of raw chicken partially leaning onto boxes of packaged foods" at the Chipotle restaurant at 9733 Sawmill Parkway that's at the center of a suspected illness outbreak, according to health records. The proximity of the raw chicken to other foods presented a risk of contamination, the report said.

Following a visit to another Chipotle, at 8695 Owenfield Dr., on Wednesday, inspectors wrote that a "box of raw chicken" was "observed up against boxes of unopened beans and very close to ready-to-eat items."

Inspectors also found foods that were not being held at proper temperatures.

In an emailed statement to Business Insider, a Chipotle spokeswoman, Laurie Schalow, said: "Food safety is our number one priority and we are proud of the industry leading practices and training we have in place across our system. These instances where two SEALED packaged products were next to each other in the walk-in refrigerator were immediately remedied."

DGHD said late Thursday that it had received 703 calls and emails concerning potential illnesses stemming from the Chipotle restaurant on Sawmill Parkway. Officials have tested customers' stool samples but have not identified a source of the suspected illness outbreak and are conducting further testing. The location temporarily shut down on Monday for cleaning and reopened on Tuesday. No customers who ate at the restaurant since Tuesday have reported becoming ill.

DGHD has also received three reports of possible illnesses stemming from two other Chipotle locations — the restaurant on Owenfield Drive and another at 1710 Columbus Pike — prompting inspections of both.

I'm probably gonna get a lot of flak for this, but I'm definitely one of those loyal customer type people; I used to eat at Chipotle twice a week. As much as I love their food and think they're a great company, I can;t help but find this hilarious, they can't seem to catch a break with their health code problems.

In other restaurant news: McDonald's new burger is surprisingly not shit, Taco Bell Nacho Fries are still badass, the Outback near my house now delivers, and I'm one visit away from a free appetizer at Hooters.

The Flood / AMA Just aced a promotion interview
« on: July 09, 2018, 03:58:42 PM »
My last interview was only 15 minutes, lots of silence and quick short responses, and a half blank resume.

This one was 35-40 minutes, long detailed stories, a full page resume on resume paper, and both interviewers telling me I did exceptionally well, looked sharp, provided great answers/questions, and that I had the experience they wanted. Basically telling me I had the job without actually telling me that because they went through the whole "We have other candidates we have to interview as well" spiel and that they'll give me their answer soon.

The Flood / The Bible was a RL anime event

When Jesus Christ was 21 years old, he came to Japan and pursued knowledge of divinity for 12 years. He went back to Judea at age 33 and engaged in his mission. However, at that time, people in Judea would not accept Christ's preaching. Instead, they arrested him and tried to crucify him on a cross. His younger brother, Isukiri casually took Christ's place and ended his life on the cross.

Christ, who escaped the crucifixion, went through the ups and downs of travel, and again came to Japan. He settled right here in what is now called Herai Village, and died at the age of 106.

On this holy ground, there is dedicated a burial mound on the right to deify Christ, and a grave on the left to deify Isukiri.

The above description was given in a testament by Jesus Christ.

I’m in the theater right now to see the Heaven’s Feel movie. So far I’ve ran into:

Three fat neck beards playing F/GO in front of me.
A Saber cosplayer two rows down.
A gay black couple sitting right next to me.
More weeabs above me saying this is the best route.

I wish when I was selecting my assigned seat I chose directly two rows down instead....

Guys give me suggestions on what I should do while I'm here.

So I went with my sister yesterday cause she really really wanted me to go, so I bought a half-day ticket for only yesterday since it opened at like 4pm, and it was only 24 bucks. But when the lady at the ticket booth gave me the wristband, she gave me the four-day deluxe band by accident so I get to go today for free essentially.

Of course I'm gonna buy some swag but let me know what else I should look out for.

The Flood / Power supply help
« on: April 30, 2018, 11:30:11 AM »
So when I first built this computer two years ago, I got an 850W EVGA PSU. It worked great until April of last year and it started making this God forsaken chirping noise, I bought a replacement EVGA PSU two months later and it worked fine...until now. The chirping noise is back, granted it's not as strong as the first EVGA PSU but it's still noticeable and very much annoying.

The PSU is fully modular, if I buy a Corsair PSU can I just swap the blocks out without messing with the cables? I'm not buying another EVGA PSU after this.

The Flood / Morgoth Did Nothing Wrong
« on: April 14, 2018, 09:57:07 PM »


Who's really in the wrong? Melkor for singing his own song and creating """disharmony""" in the music (which didn't amount to anything significant anyways), or Iluvatar for not letting Melkor just sing his own song? I'd argue the latter; what's with Gods and thinking they're all high and mighty? Would it kill them to be a little more humble?

The Flood / Depression/Good starting alcohol
« on: February 07, 2018, 12:16:32 PM »


I would like to take this time to apologize to Chally and Co. for not taking their advice which could have easily prevented this.

So the reason I haven't responded to anyone is because I've been coming to the realization that the girl I've been struggling with has no interest in ending things on a good note (or providing closure at all for that matter), and it's been eating me alive for the past three months. I'll probably never know why she's changed, why she's clearly treating me differently, what I might have done to cause this, or whether or not our date or hanging out as friends meant anything to her at all, and it fucking hurts.

I'm a teetotaler and that's been something I've taken pride in but at this point I don't care about my ideals anymore and I just want the pain to go away. Will a liquor store still sell me alcohol even though my ID says "Under 21 until X date" even though I'm 23? Also, is Vodka a good starting alcohol? I was told it has no taste and I was just going to mix it in with Gatorade or something. I don't want anything that has a burning sensation, and I don't know what wine is like so I'm not sure if that's a good one to get hammered on.

The Flood / AMA Converted to Hellenism
« on: February 04, 2018, 11:00:53 PM »
My response to Das in another thread has got me thinking more and more about the fact that despite being raised Catholic, the idea of the Greek gods has spoken to me more than anything else.



And I'm not trying to be ironic or meme or anything. I have been very unsatisfied with Christian theology for a long time in my life, other religions seem completely alien to me, and atheism personally is just too....depressing. But as I looked more and more into Greek culture and more specifically their religion, it sparked an interest no other religion has, and got me looking into trying to understand it.

The Flood / >He doesn't main a Dark Magician deck

Don't be a fucking pleb.

Anyways, I was walking around a shopping center on Monday while waiting for my car to get out of the shop for a simple oil change. Stopped off at a Gamestop and got the Legendary Dragons Decks box for ten bucks. Came with three structure decks, one Dark Magician/dragon deck, one Cyber Dragon deck, and one Odd Eyes Pendulum deck. Shit is pretty cool. Played against my sister's BF today and went back and forth in win/loss; he has a good Aqua deck.

Discuss Yugioh I guess.
