I think you need to slow down when you're diddling. Just sayin'.

The complexity must be the reason I keep getting injured every time I drink! I have two bruised toes, a bruised or sprained thumb, and these hand injuries from my big pool party this weekend:

I was doing OK until we started doing shots of whiskey and tequila...




Pocket pool party that is--- use lube less friction burn and less blisters on your hand

I've never had a boring job in my life, because it's just awesome being me.

One morning, my job was really boring UNTIL this happened:

The following pic is safe for work, it is just not safe for those eating stir fry/noodles or have a queasy stomach.
Spoiler


Took a 1/4 inch chunk of bone out of my thumb with a router. While I was waiting for the plastic surgeon to look at me at the ER, I was showing everyone how my tendon moves when I bend my thumb, never seen a tendon move till that day. Now I have half a thumbnail...

...am currently eating stir fry/noodles. Doesn't bother me, but you might wish to tag that as NSFW & wrap it in a spoiler tag :)

Damn! That's why I avoid power tools.

My hand injuries were a mystery to me (wonder why?) until this morning. I thought I maybe was cutting up limes for the tequila shots with the lime in my hand, but that didn't make sense because it's my right hand and I'm right handed. It's from jamming in the bamboo tiki torches.

Wrapped it.

You've just made my lunch decision for me. Nothing with red sauce. Ever.

thank you adblock. I'm pretty sure I'm glad I didn't see what I assume was a pretty gruesome picture.

That picture is gross but I've seen far worst, believe me.
The most boring thing I has to do was data entry. I quit in just 15 minutes of writing names, addresses and stuff like that.

I actually know people that will kill for a job like this. I would kill my boss if I had a job like this. :lol:

Data Center Operations is the most boring job I had, all I had to do was execute shell scripts and fix failing RAID arrays, the only exciting thing about it was putting together new equipment from scratch but that was once in a blue moon. As they say a lazy sysadmin is the best sysadmin.

I would say being a "Fluffer" is a pretty shitty job.
Also a color commentator for Golf, Curling or Soccer
