    the supermarket where i work was incredibly hot tonight because apparently the heating and fridges are run by a computer in an undisclosed hub somewhere in the country that we have no control over and it malfunctioned

    sounds like it became sentient and tried to murder us
    Happens all the time in my school.

    That happened to me during the whole time I was working in a film rental. Top that with one shitty channel of shitty music that played few shitty "popular" songs on loop that was on 24/7 because of firm regulations.

    All of the above were controlled by sentient machines in an undisclosed location hundreds of miles away.

    I still can hum the whole melody of that one hit wonder Juanes song.

    i'm so glad waitrose doesn't play music

    Edited:

    today i learnt how much we lose to shop-lifting. it's hilarious. we have no security and we're in the middle of nowhere so there's really nothing to stop anyone robbing us. it's usually pretty intelligent people too (waitrose is the most middle-class supermarket going) so it's not some idiot putting vodka down his pants but a guy filling a trolley with hundreds and hundreds worth of organic legs of lamb and selling them down the pub

    Recently got three new books from the Horus Heresy series and I started reading one of them; Tales of Heresy. It's a collection of shorter stories made by several writers.

    Long story short, a few of the pages around 16-19/23 were all loose. I could pull them out and stuff.

    Fucking irritating at first, but after going along, I just didn't notice those particular pages being slightly loose/sticking out of the book and I'm fine with those few pages being loose as long as no other pages are.

    Has this EVER happened to anyone else?

    yeah its easy to steal from stores with no security or barriers.

    first bystander effect
    second people are too shy to say anything/don't really give a fuck
    third people look out for the tracksuit wearing poor looking types rather than the guy dressed nice

    co-op is usually the best place for thieves because everyone in those shops are too nice

    Oh wow.

    I actually read a funny finnish article a long time ago about all kinds of bullshit work offers that creative people get. The topic in question reminds me of it, a lot.

    think i stepped into the registered retards server on bf3

    each team started with like 5000 tickets, everyone in the server was still a chevron rank. i have never played with stupider people. i took it as an opportunity to use the default recon rifle with iron sights and i still did okay, and that's after using the huey to roadkill enemy snipers

    it was genuinely difficult to play against these people though because they were so unpredictable. it was like playing bf1942 five years after release when the only people left playing it are 12 year olds with shit computers so there is no control point capturing, just spawn camping

    I can play with you too.

    Talking about BF3. I once was playing against CAMPAH THEAM, only snipers. It was fun to sneak to them and kill them with claymore mine.

    True story.

    And I hate the guys with general ranks. They are mostly 10 year old no-lifes or cheaters.

    might have to pick up my banjo tomorrow after listening to this album. i forgot how good these guys are

    couldn't listen to them for ages though. made me weirdly sad. anyone else get that where you associate a certain album or artist or some songs with a certain time in your life? it's purely coincidence of timing but i can't help it

    Basically a little computer you can program with a modified C++ code. You can do all kinds of things with it if you don't mind shelling out the cash for GPS, accelerometers, motion and temperature sensors, etc.

    A lot of robot teams use Arduinos as a "brain." There used to be a subforum for embedded programming on FP, not sure about now though.
