    rewatching band of brothers, figuring out who is still alive is not simple as for the last 5 years every time one of them dies like ten websites write it up as LAST MEMBER when it really isn't. one i knew from my previous job died in 2020.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edward_Shames

    seems to be the only one i can find, but he's referred to as one of two a few places but no one mentions the other

    Can someone explain the origin of influencers doing exhibition boxing matches?

    I see one of the Paul brothers is ‘boxing’ Mayweather tonight and kudos to them because I can only imagine how much money they’re both getting.

    I’ve seen Sleepless in Seattle, though my wife’s favorite is You’ve Got Mail. I think that’s one of those movies that if she saw it was on, she’d always watch it

    Am I crazy for not wanting to aspire to certain roles within a profession because it would mean working extensive OT every week?

    Not to be too invasive but what kind of roles are we talking? Don’t you work front desk at a medical office currently?

    For me it would come down to where do I want to be in the future and how much of a pay bump would these opportunities provide.

    I'm actually behind the scenes. I only fill in at the front desk when that person is out. But the next step within the department would be the person who oversees the administrative stuff (aside from the sales/accounts stuff) and that person is working like 7 days a week and nights and weekends. Like I mean that's why I quit working in college athletics, didn't have a fucking life outside of work, and that was in a field I generally liked a lot. Medical office is most certainly not in that territory. I mean it's OK, I don't hate it, I don't enjoy it, I just tolerate it. I figured if I was working OT in this every week, I'd just get burnt out with the quickness

    Hot chicks aren't digging me regardless. I do not know if the hot dudes do or not, not my wheelhouse. I'm fat though so my educated guess would be that they do not as well.

    Yes I really love how at this job I'm limited to 40 hours a week and work stays at work. Like I'm not even allowed to work OT unless it's absolutely necessary and the only thing work related I can even access offsite is the website for payroll/benefits. Going into any work that requires regularly working 50-60+ hours a week just sounds like a miserable proposition.

    Youtube ads have gotten out of control. I noticed recently they started having music videos as the ad that last 5 minutes. Annoying as shit to always need a remote or phone near you to skip it. But it got extra ridiculous today when my ad break was a FOURTY FOUR fucking minute video. What the fuck. They just trying to annoy people to pay for ad free?

    I was streaming Mickey Mouse or something for my toddler and between episodes there was one of those 45-minute ads for something completely unrelated to kids. It was an odd choice based on what was on the playlist.

    Yeah I think given the opportunity I would have made a lot more mistakes. I was far too responsible and while that's tight for now me, I would have done a lot more dumb or irresponsible shit if I could go back.
