InstaKarma - Just add Moped
My brothers moped was just stolen this morning. Nobody heard anything, despite it being parked around the back of our house, and both me and my father were home at the time. (Ok, was sound asleep, so sue me)
On this particular moped, the handlebars are connected to the front forks by an aluminum tube about 2 cm across. Not hefty, but not usually something you'd just bend or break with your hands. And there's some sort of lock on the handlebars that prevent them from turning.

Now...our culprit had forced the handlebar in some way, probably through brute force and ignorance, and had made the front wheel turn straight ahead. Then he'd started it up and ridden a few metres before the steering column snapped in half from him forcing the lock. I'm sad to say I didn't witness it, but reportedly he flew off in spectacular fashion landing flat on his face.

In addition, said brother rides motocross once or twice a month, so fixing the bike will cost no more than the parts...not a lot.

Sure made me smile a bit.

» Social Networking Gaffes

I've never gotten into this whole myspace/facebook thingamajig... never even visited the sites at all. And I do NOT understand the draw of having everyone around know what you're doing at all times. I like my privacy.

Am I missing out, am I right to be indifferent, or does this just prove that I am a lonely tosser who doesn't have any friends?

» How nerdy are you?

I have (and play) 6 lvl 70 WoW characters.

I own a collection of about 1500 Magic: The Gathering cards, either in folders (9 cards a page, double sided, 3 folders, sorted after colour, rarity, edition etc) or in ready-to-play 60 card decks. And I spent every wednesday evening for 2 years playing organized MT:G games.

My playtime on FFX and FFX-2 exceeds 300 hrs.

Although lost to the stupid 90-day-rule, I have had 3 lvl 99 Diablo 2 characters (skelly/spear necro, novasorc (back in 1.04...no anni for her ), javazon) with full runeword/unique gear, annis/charms etc.

I live with my parents at age 23.

Do I fit in here?

» The Dirty Secrets of Your Trade

Supermarkets are frauds
I work in the produce dept. of a fairly large chain of supermarkets in Denmark. And i can onfirm your suspicions that we rip you off or try to kill you on a daily basis.

For instance, it is not uncommon for us to mark up an item, and then offer it on sale at its now "cheap" standard price.
Ok, so this mainly goes on in the produce dept...fresh goods and everything, with prices changing daily. But still. It's illegal and I feel bad doing it.

Or bread from our bakery dept. that gets dropped on the floor. If nobody is looking...back on the shelf. This practice was started by our manager one morning when he was in a hurry and dropped a few trays of bread...now everyone does it.

And don't get me started on the state of our bakery out back...suffice to say that we've just been fined a fair bit of cash because of the state of the cleanliness there...granted, our baker stopped and we've just gotten a new one, but still...you should've seen the brown goo they had to wash off the ceiling with a high pressure water jet.

The worst part...i've been trained as a chef, i know hygiene, storage temps, everything...and still i turn a blind eye. But when you're permanently understaffed like we are, and the ppl that actually DO come to work are spotty 17 yr olds that call in sick 2 days out of 5, you simply don't have the time for these "minor" things...as if the 60 hr weeks weren't enough as it is.

Sigh...ok...might be a bit off topic there at the end,and a little ranty...feels better getting this off my chest tho

length? about 10 hrs every day, for 6 days...
