    There's a bitter sweetness when problems happen, that you predicted would happen ages ago, but nobody listened to you. There's the satisfaction of being right, but the disappointment that nobody listened back then, or you wish you'd put your foot down harder.

    I used to feel that way but now I just keep more notes - for longer.


    in today's age I don't understand this desire to farm out everything and not control your own operations data and process. I don't get it.

    Simple. People are idiots, and no one has the cajones (anymore) to point that out. EVERYONE is wearing the emperor's new clothes.

    True. Brexit proves that beyond all doubt. My default assumption nowadays is that nobody actually knows what they're doing. It's not far from the truth.

    I'd just sound really lame saying 'I told you so'. So I just come on here and moan about it :D

    The bigger problem is no one is willing to admit they don't know what they are doing, and everyone around them is afraid to point it out.

    "Brexit" sounds rather P&CA.

    I'm calling bullshit on this! :eek:

    THIS woman doesn't use makeup (never did, except for a BRIEF early teen period), can't STAND underwire bras, never wore padded bras, and no longer even owns a pair of high heels.

    That stuff you said certainly applies to SOME women, no argument there. But it's simply incorrect to slap those attributes on ALL women.

    Lets not go down the rabbit hole of painting the sexes with generalities. It probably won't end well. :)

    Going through exactly that at work right now, watching people scramble and try to do too (still) too little, too late. Ah, well. If things continue the way they are, I'll be leaving in a few months and it will no longer be my concern.

    Sometimes I think it might be useful to have tattoos of exclamation marks on the nail-side of my middle fingers...

    So Joaquin Phoenix has some big shoes to fill as the joker since Heath Ledger set the bar as the best joker of all time.
