For as many mostly naked white girls as Chris Brown brought out, it seems Zac Brown's audience has a near equal amount of early 20s boys who really enjoy Oakley glasses, board shorts and palm tree tank tops

Why the hell must hangovers be so bad?

Also why the hell are barbershops so expensive now? Quick online search didn't even get a trim for 40 bucks. I remember when it was 5.

RPG, what do you have against guys in their 20's wearing pineapple tank tops and shorts?

I'm being flown in next week for an interview at a company doing consulting. So I tried getting back in touch with the other company that didn't give me an internship because I was "overqualified" to see if they might have worked out a more permanent position as they were suggesting. I was told they were not able to accommodate my level of expertise at the moment. *facedesk*

Yeah I ran into that a lot when I was job hunting.

 

Companies definitely weren't looking for fresh grads at all. Its either interns or 5+ years of experience 

 

All I can say is don't give up keep the pipeline rolling and you'll start getting 1-2 interviews a week and its eventually it will happen

Today, in 9 hours, I'll be at Carowinds. It's an amusement park with a lot of rollercoasters.

Time to get some sleep!

It seems more like the other way around - they seem to feel I'd just be bored there and whatever they would have me do is too low level.

I've never been denied a job after an interview.
Don't know if I just ace them or whatnot. I know that in at least one of the spots I got they get 10+ applicants per spot.

Pretty cool weekend, being back home during summer in our summer capital. Bloody epic here.

Here's a question.

 

Why do meat products, particularly chicken, get recalled for suspected salmonella contamination?

 

I was taught that salmonella in chicken should just be taken for granted, that it was common enough that you should always just assume it's there, and that's why you just don't eat pink chicken and why you take care to wash your hands and any surface raw chicken (or any other meat) touches. I take it that salmonella is not as common in chicken as I thought (I thought that something like 30% of chicken would contain it)?

 

Obviously non meat products are a different case. Salmonella isn't expected in a salad.

They all were amazing, but those two were the best.

We went on all but two coasters: Kiddy Hawk (I wasn't waiting in line) and a wooden one I can't remember.

We had a great time. Fast Lane was like being a VIP lol, skipping the entire line. Nighthawk and Fury had like 1-2 hour lines.

I don't know about salmonella regulations specifically, but most likely because A) something got past quality control or B) it's discovered that food safety standards aren't being met.

 

A) When you're producing many units of something on a large scale, it can quickly get very difficult to check whether each unit is up to par, especially if testing requires units to be destroyed as is often the case with foodstuffs. There are organizations (the FDA in the United States, for example) that decide how much and what kind of testing is required. Because it's not reasonable to check every single piece of chicken, it's possible for defective/unsafe units to get through. On top of that, there are many different kinds of salmonella (some more harmful to humans than others) and it takes time for the infection to be noticed and then confirmed by a doctor. On top of that, it's hard to determine the source of the infection from just one case, and more testing (time) is required to figure out what kind of salmonella is being dealt with. You can figure out where an instance of salmonella came from before knowing exactly what you're dealing with. Even if you do know what kind of salmonella it is, it can still be worth recalling because

 

B) It's possible the infections happened in the first place because corners were being cut during quality control or manufacturing. By not following the rules set by the standards organization, it can be difficult to tell what caused the problem in the first place and whether any other problems exist.

I was called over to computers by a new coworker. I asked a customer "What's the problem?" because I didn't hear what the issue was over the radio.

He had the audacity to scold me like I'm a child for my phrasing! I should have said "What's your concern?" or "What's your worry?" according to him...

I've been called stupid and useless and other things; I've had customers put me down with their master's in IT and other bullshit (lol); and I handled those without any trouble, but to scold me in front of my coworkers?!

That's craptastic, and you deserve better. Unfortunately, not all of their problems are technical in nature.


I had a recent run-in with a visitor who didn't come prepared and knew just enough to send our driver to the store to look for things that don't exist.
While trying to work out just what he was asking for, and what he actually needed, he started talking down to me. "Look, this is incredibly simple. Can you do it or not?" "Surely I'm not the first person to ever want this," and so on.
Holy cow. I do systems development; I was only even there because I can figure out how to plug stuff in. I must have blanked for a moment, trying to work out whether it was actually happening; a coworker later said she thought I was about to go hands-on. I wasn't, it was just such a surreal situation.

We got him set up in the end, but... wow. Luckily, I didn't have to deal with him past that.
