    Pretty fun live police chase going on in LA, complete with road rage incidents by other cars and fans waving down the car with signs and giving the finger to the helicopters. There is a motorcycle and two other cars following. Not sure why.

    Edit: Now the driver has jumped out of the van and gotten into a mini cooper. This is bizarre.

    It’s slang for prisoner. In most situations it’s used to refer to a bad or naughty kid.

    My mom called me and my cousins yard birds. I’d never heard it in reference to a chicken until the restaurant.

    i thought it was a generic insult for kids who didn't like to lift weights. this makes a lot more sense considering that the dude i'm talking about was from klamath falls, oregon

    spoiler alert: there are no falls and it's a shitty place to live

    Speaking of Klamath Falls, this nice young lad appears to be from there. Seems like a really random town to stumble on twice in a few days.

    Always thought the stories of him drinking 150 beers in a night were a little exaggerated. But then I see this photo and think yeah seems about right.

    Watching this guy on YouTube that’s an expert at GeoGuessr. Motherfucker sees a picture of a bridge and a mountain, doesn’t know Serbian, Bosnian, Albanian, or Croatian, but still reads a sign.

    “I think this is in Montenegro”

    After a quick spin around in a circle he clicks on the map and zooms in and ends up 5 yards from where the pic was taken.

    I’m pretty decent at GeoGuessr and can get within 100 yards, but it takes a long time of looking for clues then studying the map.

    We used to play at work a lot. It was pretty much dealer’s choice on the rules. One we did a lot was 30 seconds, only turning on the spot. My favorite version was you get full internet access and whatever to help and we timed it then added like :10 per yard or something.

    Then someone complained and we had to stop.

    Adjusting from being funemployed for 11 months to now being on zooms all day long is tough. I’ve never worked fully remote before so I’m a bit behind the curve compared to everyone else right now.

    Haven't been in the office since 3/13/20. I've always had the option to WFH once a week or so, but it definitely took a while to get in a groove. It's also hard to not work more everyday because you don't have to commute. I'd find myself logging on at 7/7:30 and then working until the evening since I didn't have to drive

    Full time working from home was a huge adjustment for me. I was really bad at my job. Working from my couch w ESPN in the back ground. My boss was told me I was working too late because I was answering emails at 1am. The reason I was answer emails that late was because I couldnt stop watching the Olympics during the day.

    Once I got a routine. Forced myself to actually get dressed. Go walk to get a coffee ect it got better. Forced myself to actually work in my office w no TV.

    Now that I’ve been doing it for a few years I allow myself to keep the news on in the background or have a game on. But i was super strict w myself for a year or so


    but yeah you’ll always work more than if you were in the office. I can’t get myself to turn off work emails after the day is over. And it’s just easier to answer as they come in

    I felt pressured to hang around the office. At home I ‘work’ less hours and get the same amount of stuff done.
