Today's topic of loathing: corporate wankers. There really is no more appropriate word for them.

Exhibit A: the corporate wanker, a loud red-faced man of maybe around 30-40, who upon meeting anybody (male) sees it as a chance to exhibit his manly dominance. This he does by crushing the hand of his opposing number. In this way he is, in the eyes of his peers, a true alpha male.

Exhibit B: the corporate wanker, normally younger than the above example but still white and male, whose walk is an affected swagger. In this way he owns the pavement. His walk is in no way sillier than John Cleese's for the reason of being unintentional, but is instead a way to show that he has money, class, and... more money. That's all that matters, right?

Mad

I'm glad I've not had any run-ins with people of that sort of ilk. Plenty of brown nosers, mind you, but nobody who's infuriated me to the degree of the aforementioned pair by yourself, Balla.

I barely know these people! In fact the latter was a randomer walking down the street who had such an affected corporate strut I was halfway between laughing and sneering.

I wouldn't talk about my colleagues in this thread unless I was super irritated with them,. My attempts to keep a divide between this place and my 'real life' have dwindled with time, to the point where I'd be a bit nervous to say anything too angry here when in my right mind.

Really? I think a couple of folks at my work or other friends could find posts on here by searching for my username, but I don't think they'd bother readily looking for this forum, let alone knowing that it exists!

My colleagues Matty Sanderson, Matthew Comegys, Robert Elliott and Alain Gaucher are stupendous cunts and I hate them.

They'll never see this. Cucks.

I'm probably just paranoid, but at the same time it can't be too long before some recruiting company uses machine learning and a knowledge of legal loopholes re. the Internet to find out everything about me.

Is it time for big loud fireworks when I'm trying to get to sleep? Of course it is! Still more excusable than the twerps who insist on setting them off a week beforehand. READ THE FLAMING CALENDAR Hissy fit

You young things who can get by on seven hours' sleep don't know you've been born yet.

Anyway, fireworks have apparently been killing puppies, so there we go.

Schwarzenegger says you need six hours sleep, max, so I've been forcing myself to sleep faster. I can comfortably operate on seven at the moment, as my exercise regime gets a bit more habitual I'll push to six.

I'm gonna get SWOLE and CUT and RIPPED and JACKED and STACKED.

Also, I was being facetious, random fireworks usage is very harmful to animals and also sufferers of PTSD.

Surely not!

I just can't see the appeal of domestic fireworks displays. They tend to be a bit bobbins anyway. Go to a professional one! Also we had reports of people firing fireworks through letterboxes on our street.

I've enjoyed domestic fireworks only when we've pissed around. I'm lucky to still have all my digits.

My computer at the moment:

Either it's been possessed by Missingno or Flowey, or it's f***ed. Hissy fit (Yes that is an Ace Attorney mug and yes it is my fave.)

Wow. That doesm't even look real-life fucked, that looks like how a fucked computer looks like in the Pentagon in a movie written by a dude who barely knows what a computer is.

Good luck, chief . . .

Good question. It was working perfectly when I was using it on a rail replacement bus service on Saturday afternoon: I folded it up into my rucksack, brought it home, and it wasn't displaying anything. Only my 'phone charging when plugged into it clued me into its status. So I tried power cycling, and after a couple of goes it did start up - then faded to that.

I'm taking it in to Apple today. If they call me 'YOU IDIOT' I'll let y'all know.

That looks bad. Have you tried connecting it to a TV or monitor via HDMI?

You might be able to get it to display on a monitor, so if there are any files that you need right now it might be worth trying.

That it still charged your phone hopefully means it's just the screen that's gone. If it wasn't booting properly though it could be almost anything - knackered mother board, hard drive, graphics card Sad

I took it in and they said motherboard probably: they're fixing it as it's still in warranty. I have a backup, so I'll only lose a week's worth of data. In the meanwhile, thank goodness I didn't trade my old Airbook in!

All's well that ends alright then, I suppose! At least you still had the warranty - I had to pay a fair bit for a laptop repair a few years back. No
