Until I finally figured out the FTFY means Fixed That For You, I thought it meant Berk That, Berk You.

I don't even know what provel cheese is, am I missing out?

Imagine the exact middle of Provalone, swiss, and velveeta. But the worst part of all of those. And it's not cheese. 
 

It one of the few true atrocities in the pizza world. 

I was just about to explain the horror that is provel, but I see that's been taken care of.

I would rather eat pizza from the elementary school cafeteria than eat a pizza that has provel on it.

As an architect I do a lot of K-12 educational design and renovation.  I always dread the days where we have on-site meetings or field surveys because they start baking that stuff around 10:00a and the delicious odor has my mouth watering and stomach growling all morning.

I dont like any of her other songs, or pop music in general. I like metal, and punk, and 90s country. But that song just really does it for me.

I just found out that today is Friday.

I would have bet the farm that it was Saturday.

That's a trick question:  when you're retired, every day is Saturday.

I'm looking forward to it.

You won't be disappointed. In the 7 months I've been retired, I've gotten to the point of preferring weekdays to weekends.

Fewer people out and about.

When I got into work this morning, I discovered that one of the guys who worked the night before had left his Mega Millions slip on the desk. I was about to throw it away, but then I imagined him winning and quitting his job.

So I said screw that, took his slip across the street and bought a ticket with the same numbers on it. That way, if he wins, he has to split the jackpot with me, which will torture him.

But then I noticed that he didn't play the Megaplier, so I checked that box too, and if the numbers come up, I get a bigger cut.

 

Minor Confession: Firemen suck.

A real dick move would have been to get the numbers, 5x. 


I like to think that I at least understand the concept of mathematics, probability, and statistics, yet here I am, about to run out to buy a Mega Millions ticket. I'll lie to myself, trying to justify it by saying that I'm buying a few minutes/days of a fantasy, or that when it is over $500M (or double that in this case) it is large enough to make it worth it, but the truth is that I'm just like everyone else, literally throwing my money away.

I've fallen down the Letterkenny hole. Yes, it's a bit (intentionally) repetitive, but some of the "chirps" are just brutal--

My cousin posted a picture the other night. I ran out and posted a picture of my two in the comments. By the next morning most of his friends went and did the same. It was probably going to get split 100 ways if it won

I can't take the credit, I learned it in a warehouse I worked for in high school. We had a lotto pool where the secretary bought the tickets and gave everyone a copy. The old grouch that managed the loading dock would get in the pool, then but himself duplicates of all the tickets.

And I blame you for the last two hours of life I won’t get back...laugh To be fair...

My son had said something about this a year or two ago and I didn’t bite.  Holy carp that’s some funny E36 M3. I’ve been texting back and forth with him, more lost time ahead.  Thanks I think?

I farted up the breakroom at work so hard that even I had to leave.

 

Backstory/disclosure:   I once cleared out an open-air backyard.  My GI tract, when it is in the mood, can qualify as a chemical weapon.  I'm like the Martin Riggs of flatulence.
