This inflatable lock advertisement on a storage building by camilleb22601 in mildlyinteresting

[–]CrispBenWa 154 points155 points  (0 children)

When I drive past this every day, when it's not on the building, I have enough time because of the fucking miserable traffic to think about how mildly interesting it is that a giant inflatable lock can be stolen from a building called "fortress"

Yeah, but your sculptors were so preoccupied with whether or not they should, they didn't stop to think if they could.

My new set of sheets came with a handy little pocket. by ThePlayfulPython in mildlyinteresting

Are you sure there are no baby sheets in the pouch? Sheets are marsupials you know...

Edit: Thank you anonymous gilder :)

“This is about the time when we start to see edits. Common example include:

Thank you for the gold, kind stranger

RIP my inbox

Wow my most upvoted comment is a part of a karma/gold whoring chain

And my personal favorite: a word

Edit: One more example of a common edit is when someone adds more information or forgot to say something in their comment the first time.

Have you ever tried to get an older person to double click if they're not the type to have used computers extensively in the past? Its like they just don't understand the idea of double clicking or the idea of mostly using the left button. First they go too slow and you show them again, then they triple or quadruple click in rapid succession and somehow end up downloading something. So you show them AGAIN and eventually they get it. This requires personalized attention, not do it with a class of 8 or 12 or 20 and I bet you the "learn to log into facebook and stop creating a new account every month" class can take an hour easy.

As a librarian, we're not supposed to judge people's information needs.

Just, you know, don't do it on one of the public computers.

I expected that to be very NSFW but it's actually a sub about knitting

Same thing with smartphones. Its really hard for them to get the hang of tapping vs holding down. My grandma usually ends up taking a dozen burst photos.

It's always time to start drinking if you never stop drinking!

Because of the severe alcoholism.

Being used to mask the crippling depression.

I should just use my alt and gold myself so people think im witty
