As someone who spent the past two years almost exclusively taking criminal justice classes, I can say that video is spot on, but still barely scratches the surface.

It definitely doesn't get into the meat of the problem but I think as aimed to the majority of Americans who don't even know that much, it's a great introduction to the topic of our bullshit prison system.

You can never get a full box of drawstring trash bags. At least you don't live in a city where you have to buy the state-ordained trashbags that are overpriced and tie off and bullshit.

We just bought a really small trash can, and we just use grocery bags from stores in that. We have to take out the garbage more than most (by "we" I mean "I"), but it's free. I'd rather spend money on something I can eat as opposed to a trash collector.

I got my evaluation at work, which is basically a yearly raise. They grade you on a bunch of things.

Needs development - Quite obvious, you need to do better.

Solid - Basically an average grade.

Exceeds - Better than the average.

Role Model - great worker, helps others learn

Like I said you're graded on a bunch of things, and you need so many exceeds to get an exceeds raise, solid raise, role model raise, etc...

I got solid on everything. Fuck you. One of the things is "knowledge of product". I know more about electronics than everyone in the fucking store and I constantly have to help other associates who give wrong information. Such bull shit. Now I would have never have gotten enough exceeds or role models to get out of a solid, but it's really the principle of the matter. Fuck you, assholes. I'd like to see you help a customer even 5% as much as I do.

It's been my experience that almost nobody gets the best possible grade in any area of any annual evaluation for any company I've ever worked for.

Those things are a scam anyway. If you get so high you might get like a 30 cent raise. Ohhhh a whole 30 cents. When I could just go where I work now and gets 6 bucks more per hour. For easier work with people who are actually half decent and where the workload is actually somewhat proportional to wages (my workload was multiple times higher than any standard cashier at wal-mart. I was literally expected to be in 2 places at once.)

End obligatory Wal-mart rant.

I wasn't sure whether to put it here or the stupid shit that makes you laugh thread, but since it costs $100...

Spoiler:

Also on the topic of special editions, the TMNT one has a Raphael figure. Why would you use Raphael? Everyone knows the turtle rankings are Michelangelo>Donatello>Raphael>Leonardo. But even Leonardo over the others I'd get since he's the team leader

Trip I can at least understand since Donatello is a notch above the other two. The rest of you I just can't. Also Kay, nunchucks>pole.

@Spiddy- It was directed less at that it's a CE, but more why Sony thought people would want a ridiculous looking bust of Electro

As a kid it was Michaelangelo > Donatello > Leonardo > Raphael. As an adult Mikey and Don have switched.

Video games it goes like this...

Donatello > Leonardo > Michaelangelo > Rapheal.

I always thought Leonardo > Donatello > Michaelangelo = Raphael. Because being blue was cool enough for me when I played Turtles in Time

Prayer Whores.

Definition - People that make vague statuses on social networks asking for prayers, but never go into reasons as to why prayers are needed.  

drama queen/king, attention seekers, people who believe seeing the words "sending a prayer your way" will do something




I think I might write a bit about this. This is something I feel very passionate about.

I don't see people asking for "prayers" much. Probably because I live in an atheist commie nazi hell according to Fox news. But I see a lot of "OMG SO MAD RIGHT NOW I HATE PEOPLE UGH DON'T ASK ABOUT IT!"

What's funny is when you find out what happened and it turns out it was all that person's fault

I get those ^ as well. Don't create vague post asking for prayers or attention and don't elaborate. It's like obituaries, we the people have the right to know why someone died.

Ah the compliment fishers. "I JUST FEEL SO UGLY TODAY!" (glamour shot)

I think Bret's the only one here that has me on facebook but I just don't see the point of putting up personal stuff. I mean, we all do it occasionally but people seem to forget Facebook is a very very public space.

I use Facebook to post trophies, music videos, random thoughts, and I'll like/comment on others statuses if they warrant a like/comment. Most people don't though.

You have good posts. One I can remember liking right off the top of my head is the one where you're supposed to fight someone. Not sure if that's really happening, but it was a good read.
