Geeez, I just read a story about a liberal satire Facebook page that would publish absolutely outlandish, ridiculous made-up conservative propaganda, stuff so absurd nobody with half a brain could take it seriously... and conservatives are taking it at face value.

@  Pennpenn : (18 November 2018 - 01:03 AM)

Debateable. It's a sunday anyway. Wonder if I'll still feel up and ready to go tomorrow. Don't want to take too many days off leading up to the end of the year.

Welp, good morning so far. My brother helped me get my sister in law's christmas gift, and reminded me I still had to get my mom's calendar for next year.

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2018 - 08:22 AM)

Oh yeah, feeling feverish. What fun.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 November 2018 - 10:07 PM)

My father used to ask his boss that question. Then he STOPPED asking, and got used to twiddling his thumbs. Made things so much easier, and didn't actually change how his bosses thought of him.

@  Nevermore : (16 November 2018 - 07:31 PM)

So of course you wait until the end of your shift like everyone else, THEN you walk up to the manager on duty and ask him what you're supposed to do during the requested overtime.

@  Nevermore : (16 November 2018 - 07:30 PM)

Fun: The employer allows (paid) voluntary overtime, cannot backtrack on the permit, and before the regular end of your shift, you notice you're rapidly running out of work.

@  Paladin : (16 November 2018 - 12:34 PM)

settle a bet: is "drama queen" a gender-neutral description?

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 November 2018 - 08:38 PM)

Sounds like management is the same everywhere :p

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 November 2018 - 08:12 PM)

My bosses are too busy trying to see if they can have their heads up their own asses while still being able to kiss the asses of everyone above them. It'd be amusing to watch if I wasn't one of the ones trying to get everything done to cover for it.

@  Nevermore : (15 November 2018 - 07:05 PM)

He's living by the standard "bow to those below you; kick at those above you. You got more people below you than above you."

@  Nevermore : (15 November 2018 - 07:04 PM)

Whenever we go on strike, he's there with us. He told me that this is the only completely legal way for him to show his own bosses the finger,

@  Nevermore : (15 November 2018 - 07:03 PM)

Well, this guy has been getting flak from above, it's just that he doesn't care. He's doing what he thinks is right. He's easily the smartest of my superiors, and also the one with the biggest balls.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 November 2018 - 05:24 PM)

Must be nice, having a boss that cares.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 November 2018 - 01:03 PM)

Indeed.

@  Echowarrior : (15 November 2018 - 11:58 AM)

That's a good superior.

@  Nevermore : (15 November 2018 - 06:21 AM)

Arguing in my favor that I was working under sub-par conditions, there were problems with sudden halts of the conveyor and other issues that affected my productivity, and besides, why was this guy giving a feedback to one of HIS subordinates, wich was his job?

@  Nevermore : (15 November 2018 - 06:19 AM)

Also, yesterday he stood up for me when a superior from the department I was sent to was giving me a productivity feedback.

@  Nevermore : (15 November 2018 - 06:19 AM)

So this week all of my superiors save one guy are absent, and I'm not noticing a difference. Which says a lot about this guy.

@  Waspinator : (15 November 2018 - 03:28 AM)

That's hateriffic.

@  MEDdMI : (14 November 2018 - 11:48 PM)

I both love and hate you all :wtf

@  PlutoniumBoss : (14 November 2018 - 04:06 PM)

Well the fare is fowl if the fowl is fair.

@  RichardT1977 : (14 November 2018 - 03:10 PM)

1/4 of duck is 1/4 of the turd in turducken

@  Paladin : (14 November 2018 - 12:18 PM)

not really. duck meat is fowl.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 November 2018 - 12:01 PM)

Couldn't we just cook the duck? I mean, it would be tastier...

Yeah, it's pretty good.

Although I wasn't a regular watcher at first. It felt like every time I caught the show while it was on it was the same episode.

 

But I decided to finally start DVRing it during the Stevenbomb(which I did not know was going on), and now I'm hooked.

That show turned out to be a "sleeper hit" with me. at first it was just something I let play in the background but when I started paying attention I was surprised at the depth the show has.

I've fallen behind on episodes but I might decide to marathon them soon. It's that good.

If you're going to start watching, keep in mind the 1st few episodes are standalone and may appear somewhat random. What they do accomplish, however is *world building*. Eventually there is a narrative going on (like the story of Steven's mother, or the very nature of the Crystal Gems *and the threats they fight*) and those"random episodes" suddenly become important.

Yeah I REALLY wanted us to have a thread when Jail Break aired. Garnet's song and all.

I think it's certainly one of and quite possibly THE best Cartoon on TV at the moment.

I want to avoid getting too hyperbolic about it, but I definitely think it's a really fun show that's doing stuff that I want to see a lot more shows do.

There are a half dozen or so plus size characters but not once in over fifty episodes has there been a fat joke!

I love this show, so, SO much. Here's a little review:
 
Steven Universe is the son of Rose Quartz, a gem, and Greg Universe, a human. He lives with The Crystal Gems(Living magic "rock" people with magic technology.) so he can develop his powers. The show follows Steven and the people around him, exploring Beach City, the people living there, the varied Gem locations on earth, and the Crystal Gems themselves through Steven's perspective in an amazingly organic way.
 
It's funny and goofy and exciting and it has some cool action and cool weapons and some beautiful animation and an amazing aesthetic and deep lore and fantastic characters and world building and mystery and heartwarming to heartwrenching moments and oh goodness the music...
 
It basically basically does everything I'd want a show to do and does it flawlessly: Explore a world through great characters in a story that is often silly and fun but can also shift in intensity. It even has musical segments, for crying out loud!
 
Also could we uncapslock the thread title? Please stop shouting.

After watching this show I kind of want to see Transformers redo a concept like Energon where everyone can combine, but combination is viewed the same way fusion is in Steven Universe.

The teasers back when they first started advertising it on CN as a new show intrigued me, mostly b/c it was made by a woman and the main female characters all had vastly different body types and facial features. Been a fan ever since ep 1. I am surprised at how it makes me care even for the minor chars in Beach City, and how imperfect even the Crystal Gems are. It's great to see so many Gem & human female characters take the lead, and Steven being ok with being more of a romantic and emotional than the ladies. This show hits me on an emotional level every couple episodes, I even cry sometimes. I also love the way they handled
