Open Cluster M6 & Comet Siding Spring (C/2013 A1)
So I thought that I was done hissing at things when they surprised/scared me. Turns out not. When people startle me, NP. I don’t make a noise. A couple nights ago when I went outside early AM and saw something odd followed by an odd sound, I hissed, stubbed my toe and scrambled to the door. I bet I looked like an idiot.
learning internet friends’ real names is always surprisingly disappointing
like what do you mean your real name is “luis” not “thunderfuck mcpickuptruck”
Car sex just got a helluva lot easier.
two kinds of people.
you could put a dead body there and put a blanket on it and people would think they were just sleeping and it would be a great way to transport dead bodies inconspicuously.
* three kinds of people.
HOW CAN YOU EVEN HAVE A GIF THAT’S THAT SPECIFIC?
I agree, it is highly unnatural…You might even say it’s ….. “Supernatural”
I just wanted to eat breakfast ;(
welp now we know the distinction between the two
I’m going to guess predaking (does my guess count)Of course your guess counts!
They are pretty darn close to the same height. Though, but the head pic. I think that makes Skyfire the tallest.
On my way home from work, I stopped at Taco Bell for a quick bite to eat.
I have a $50 bill and a $2 bill. I figure with the $2 bill, I can get something to eat and not have to worry about irritating anyone for trying to break a $50 bill.
Me: ‘Hi, I’d like one seven-layer burrito please, to go.’ Server: ‘That’ll be $1.04. Eat in?’
Me: ‘No, it’s to go.’ At this point, I open my billfold and hand him the $2 bill. He looks at it kind of funny.
Server: ‘Uh, hang on a sec, I’ll be right back.’ He goes to talk to his manager, who is still within my earshot.
The following conversation occurs between the two of them:
Server: ‘Hey, you ever see a $2 bill?’
Manager: ‘No. A what?’
Server: ‘A $2 bill. This guy just gave it to me…’
Manager: ‘Ask for something else. There’s no such thing as a $2 bill.’
Server: ‘Yeah, thought so.’
He comes back to me and says, ‘We don’t take these.
Do you have anything else?’
Me: ‘Just this fifty. You don’t take $2 bills? Why?
Server: ‘I don’t know.’
Me: ‘See here where it says legal tender?’
Me: ‘So, why won’t you take it?’
Server: ‘Well, hang on a sec.’
He goes back to his manager, who has been watching me like I’m a shoplifter, and says to him, ‘He says I have to take it.’
Manager: ‘Doesn’t he have anything else?’
Server: ‘Yeah, a fifty. I’ll get it and you can open the safe and get change.
Manager: ‘I’m not opening the safe with him in here.’
Server: ‘What should I do?’
Manager: ‘Tell him to come back later when he has real money.’
Server: ‘I can’t tell him that! You tell him.’
Manager: ‘Just tell him.’
Server: ‘No way! This is weird. I’m going in back.
The manager approaches me and says, ‘I’m sorry, but we don’t take big bills this time of night.’
Me: ‘It’s only seven o’clock! Well then, here’s a two dollar bill.’
Manager: ‘We don’t take those, either.’
Me: ‘Why not?’
Manager: ‘I think you know why.’
Me: ‘No really, tell me why.’
Manager ‘Please leave before I call mall security.’
Me: ‘Excuse me?’
Manager: ‘Please leave before I call mall security.’
Me: ‘What on earth for?’
Manager: ‘Please, sir..’
Me: ‘Uh, go ahead, call them.’
Manager: ‘Would you please just leave?’
Manager: ‘Fine — have it your way then.’
Me: ‘Hey, that’s Burger King, isn’t it?’
At this point, he backs away from me and calls mall security on the phone around the corner. I have two people staring at me from the dining area, and I begin laughing out loud, just for effect.
A few minutes later this 45-year-oldish guy comes in.
Guard: ‘Yeah, Mike, what’s up?’
Manager (whispering): ‘This guy is trying to give me some (pause) funny money.’
Guard: ‘No kidding! What?’
Manager: ‘Get this. A two dollar bill.’
Guard (incredulous): ‘Why would a guy fake a two dollar bill?’
Manager: ‘I don’t know. He’s kinda weird. He says the only other thing he has is a fifty.’
Guard: ‘Oh, so the fifty’s fake!’
Manager: ‘No, the two dollar bill is.’
Guard: ‘Why would he fake a two dollar bill?’
Manager : ‘I don’t know! Can you talk to him, and get him out of here?’
Security Guard walks over to me and……
Guard: ‘Mike here tells me you have some fake bills you’re trying to use.’
Me: ‘Uh, no.’
Guard: ‘Lemme see ‘em.’
Guard: ‘Do you want me to get the cops in here?’
At this point I’m ready to say, ‘Sure, please!’ but I want to eat, so I say, ‘I’m just trying to buy a burrito and pay for it with this two dollar bill. I put the bill up near his face, and he flinches like I’m taking a swing at him. He takes the bill turns it over a few times in his hands, and he says,
Guard: ‘Hey, Mike, what’s wrong with this bill?’
Manager: ‘It’s fake.’
Guard: ‘It doesn’t look fake to me.’
Manager: ‘But it’s a two dollar bill.’
Guard: ‘Yeah? ‘
Manager: ‘Well, there’s no such thing, is there?’
The security guard and I both look at him like he’s an idiot and it dawns on the guy that he has no clue and is an idiot. So, it turns out that my burrito was free, and he threw in a small drink and some of those cinnamon thingies, too.
Made me want to get a whole stack of two dollar bills just to see what happens when I try to buy stuff.
Its good to know your money. Being the daughter of a coin collector I know all kinds of “funny money”. And hey! Sometimes people have really old money that’s good to collect. You folks should watch out for those old coins. Someone handed a server an ACTUAL SILVER silver dollar. That was $20 you just gave away there, bud.
So, did anyone want to guess which one was taller, out of Ultimate TFP Predaking and Generations Skyfire? I really want people to guess.
A few ways to make your McDonalds order taker happy is
1. Be patient with them, you have no idea what they are doing while taking your order. They have to take money too. Or hand food out, or start your drink, or any fragging thing.
2. Know your menu. Quarter cheese no cheese= quarter HAM—saves you both time. Double cheese/cheese burger no cheese= double HAM/HAMBURGER.
Also it would be great if you know what is on the sandwich to say the one thing you don’t want rather than the few things you do want. Like for example do NOT say, “I want a cheeseburger only onion, pickle, ketchup” DO SAY “I would like a cheeseburger without mustard” stuff like that.
If you order a cheeseburger don’t bother saying “Only cheese” or “only cheese and ketchup” its a cheeseburger it will always have the cheese. Instead of “only cheese” say “plain cheeseburger”. Say “cheeseburger only ketchup”
Simple things like that can make ordering faster and simpler.
Other McDonalds vary with coupons, prices, and product. Don’t expect that all McDonalds have the same thing. Also, commercials specify at the end “at participating McDonalds only” that means only the participating McDonalds have that promo.
Also, if you are pulled a head for your order (which some McDs do to keep the line moving) PLEASE don’t complain about it. You will still get your food. IF you are angry because you sat out there for and hour PLEASE always take your receipt. It has their number on it and if you think they forgot you, you can always call.
Don’t ask the person handing you your receipt to throw it away. “It makes a mess in my car!” you say. Well, you’re kind of stuck with your bag/drink cup/drink carrier. You’ll have trash in your car either way. Also, don’t ask the people at the window to throw away your trash. They aren’t supposed to do that. Its not sanitary and there are trashes located outside for you to throw your trash in. Drive up trash cans, they have a little funnel.
Hope these tips help. There are so many things I can tell you but not all of them come up.
