Hello, I'm Laura. I'm probably not a terminator. (b'-')b

 

You have one cashier/waiter/barista to make that dumb joke to. They have hundreds of you telling them that dumb joke all day.

When I grab something for you behind the bar, do not tell me “Oh, I didn’t know it was just there, sorry!” STOP. DO NOT REACH OVER THE GLASS. DO NOT TOUCH THE BARISTA’S TOOLS. DO NOT TOUCH THE BARISTA’S SUPPLIES. DO NOT PUT YOUR HANDS IN THE BARISTA AREA.

What could be more smug and elitist than having no backwards compatability? […] Let’s imagine someone, we’ll call them Bertha, deciding they want to get into gaming, so they buy an Xbox One, and play Assassin’s Creed 4. She likes it, and wants to play Assassin’s Creed 1-3 as well. What do we say to her? “You can’t. All the previous installments of the story that provide the necessary background, all the experiences and highs and lows of the series thus far, none of that matters. Nothing that was made before this console matters, because we found a way to make games slightly prettier. And that alone, sight unseen, makes our paltry handful of bland launch titles worth more than the entire history of gaming put together. You should have played them in the last generation.” And then Bertha explains she wasn’t into gaming around the time of the last generation, and everyone laughs at her for being a noob.

medicalschool:

Nutcracker syndrome (NCS) results most commonly from the compression of the left renal vein between the abdominal aorta (AA) and superior mesenteric artery (SMA), although other variants exist. The name derives from the fact that, in the sagittal plane and/or transverse plane, the SMA and AA (with some imagination) appear to be a nutcracker crushing a nut (the renal vein). There is a wide spectrum of clinical presentations and diagnostic criteria are not well defined, which frequently results in delayed or incorrect diagnosis.This condition is not to be confused with superior mesenteric artery syndrome, which is the compression of the third portion of the duodenum by the SMA and the AA.
