I learned Once is back from break. And that the net at work is still down. And that the Tower wasn't nearly as badly damaged as I'd feared, Roxy'll be pleased to see it.

I learned the realestate who managed the property we left are as useless as tits on a bull.


I also learned that some people are absolutely insane. We had a tenant go off his rocker at our agent and then slander us ona Vent page on the local Facebook community vent page. Oh boy, it's been a doozy for the last two weeks.

I learned it is not standard for Koreans to have middle names....which is kinda sad that it's taken me this long to learn. Suppose I haven't really been interested enough to ask previously.

Hm....I don't think I learned any new words, yang at chee is the last one I learned. I got to use bob-o today :D

Man I've got that bad feeling again at work.

I learnt that going from Tokyo to Sendai is considerable more expensive than going from Sendai to Tokyo. Had the prices been the same, I would easily be able to afford it, but since it is not, I can't. Guess I'll have to wait until my next payday until I can buy the tickets.

I learned a new trick I must rant about in Uncharted 4.

I discovered on this playthrough (I know, for shame of it having taken me so long to realize!) that when you're in stealth mode and creeping up on the enemies, you can use the grenades and not get your cover blown.

....that's not a pun btw.

Well. Maybe. Anyway.

There were these three guys all grouped together around the corner of this ruin by a draw bridge, so I whip-swung over, tossed a grenade, BOOM. Break times over, boys! Then I picked off a sniper up top, take out the second sniper across the map, ending 'stealth mode', but then it gets better, I pick off the first round of guys, reinforcements come by and I hide in some ferns....while Sully and Sam flail around literally running right in front of the Shoreliners who have the reactions of a dead cow and sense not a thing wrong.

I wait for the Shoreliners to filter in and see where they're going to place themselves, try and see if I can pick any off without totally giving myself away.
Then about five or six guys all crowd together and compare their guns and talk about how much fun they had sniffing paint as young children. Since they're talking munitions, I decide to show them one of my grenades, "Hey, there's this blinking red light, is that normal?"

BOOM.

Bodies flying everywhere. I got a trophy. There was one survivor who's just "Wtf just happened? Brendan? Joseph? Marshall?!" To ease his discomfort I offer him my chiropractor services and snap his neck.

Stealth grenades are the meta. I adore them. :wub:

Playing Kahoot with a bunch of strangers is absolutely hilarious. I have no idea who these people are but I'm losing and also having a blast.

^ Me, every Monday

I learned that apparently I'm really good at pretending to know Japanese when all I actually do is listen for keywords that I know and then appropriately responding with answers that are at most 3 words. And apparently people think my Japanese is good. It's not. I'm just good at pretending I know what I'm doing.

^Sounds exactly like how an old co-worker of mine was. Knew every student, spoke a little bit of everything, sharp woman.

I learned Boris is still alive!!!!! Holy crap, I thought that Swiss guy had butchered him! But he's back, baby!!!! Well, a descendant of his anyway. But we have a new mascot for Dispatch! Go Boris go!!!! :awesome:

I learned Ford are useless idiots and my car has been in service for two weeks.

Incompetent Pendejos.

I learned I haven't been fired....yet. And they're apparently starting work to correct the Network Nuisance...though it'll probably still be at least two weeks before we're up and running, my bet.

I learned the Gorilla glue seems to be doing a slightly better job of holding the planes together than the hot glue, but we'll see. Alas, my poor Black Swan is now marred and looks like she's been sprayed with yoke lube from an overexcited Korean.

I learned in addition to Boris, we have another spider on the ground. I've named him the Enforcer because he's a big arachnid...and frankly kinda terrifying. I went to get a picture of him for posterity, then went back to the desk to do some work, came back to check on him, saw he had apparently vanished and went scouring the area for him...finding not a trace. Disheartened at the apparent loss of Mr. Enforcer, I hang my head and jump about one foot and nine inches off the floor upon discovering the Enforcer right between my feet.
I get the impression he miiiight not be keen on being mates.
I left him an offering in form of a mosquito that had been buzzing around and swiftly departed back to the safety of my desk.

I also learned the hundred dollar ship sold a few weeks back apparently. But that's okay, there's plenty more to be had, there's actually a pretty nice looking gal for about 1,700, red hull, 25 feet, not as big as some yachts, but she'd be big enough. Maybe if I get my car payments lowered. Dunno why, tis a fun thought that's been occupying me lately, live aboard a ship.
