Oh boy oh boy oh BOY


At least the gang war next door over the devil's weed is probably just going to be all bats and blades, no guns most likely (though I'd suppose they could try to set it on fire if they're losing, or rig the place to explode... that could be a pungent inferno).

OTOH IDK, there are some firearms in the UK of course, and UK drill music expounds at length upon the glories of shooting people... but a quick glance at the statistics suggests there aren't nearly enough gun homicides in the UK for that to be much more than a power fantasy most of the time. Besides, it's fun to make machine gun noises with your mouth---at least so long as they're not too realistic....

Health insurance in the United States: your employer can fire you... unless certain special criteria are met and you sue.

Quote

we did not evolve to have "jobs." we evolved to live in a group of like 20-30 people who mostly hung out. you'd shoot the shit and pick some berries and draw a fat horse on a cave wall and that was your day.

Yeah, and I'm reading that I may not qualify for unemployment because my boss is calling it "performance". My ass, he just is sick of my health problems.

That's utterly fucked LB. Burn the place down on the way out. :p
I hope you have had decent medical treatment and are feeling better with a good prognosis.

Because poorly regulated capitalism, in the land of the fee and the home of the slave*.





* yes I am aware slavery was/is practiced in many other countries, it just fits the motif.

Took car out yesterday, it was fine for the early part of the journey, halfway in it starts making idling scooter sounding low pops and this morning the ignition sounds... uhhhhh... squishy? Need to get it checked.

Fucking thing only passed MOT the other week and of COURSE it's just out of warranty now.

I'm getting cynical. There's a guy next door with a van, spoke to him briefly as he's parked over our drive but ostensibly he's there to measure their back door which was damages and then I suppose replace it. But the van despite having equipment is unmakred, no company signs etc, the guy is Eastern Euro, so I'm inwardly like, are you in on this whole thing? We gotta get out of this area...

on the other hand a lot of companies and tradesmen don't sign write their vans anymore because so many are being broken into to have tools stolen
