I feel proud of myself. I walked into a store with a woman arguing with the manager. She wanted a discount on a giftcard because another branch did it for her. She was being exstreemly rude to the beleaguered manager. So i just asked if she wanted to be a dick tonight and walked away. She left like 3 seconds later and called me a ridiculous freak and stormed off. So yeah I'm a freak for calling her on her bull but I ended 5 minutes of abuse on a fellow human being. I'll take that.

You know us as a society suffers so much because we as individuals accept that it's not our business.

Good on you mate. There's no excuse for that sort of toxic behavior, and sometimes all it takes is one sane person saying something for them to realize on some level that they're the asshole and just storm off as you said.

That's awesome. I got a Surface Pro 6 last year and like it as well.

Snow day last week means test in my horrible awful no good bio class became a take home test. So now I show up for the lab final on Tuesday and hand in my exam and I am soooo done with this professor.

My Homebrew triple was a big hit, so I'll definitely keep working to perfect the recipe. The cider was good, but needs time to mellow before kegging next time. It was still popular but had to breathe for a few minutes before serving.

Today I pieced together a bev line cleaner from parts I had sitting around, so cleaning my kegerator has become much easier and cheaper. I've also built a keg and carboy cleaner to speed up that chore, and almost got a quick carb system built to speed up carbonating the finished beer.

This weekend I'm making a Russian Imperial Stout.

Do you have any recommendations for a free or cheap drawing/sketching tool that uses the pen?
All I have tried is whiteboard.

Unfortunately, no. I am so busy when I get home that I almost never have time to use it. Also, my wife lost the pen like a week into owning it...

I was very lucky to, in 5 years of college, not have any teachers I would describe as particularly bad. At worst they were poor lecturers without a real talent for clarifying stuff. They were all at the very least pretty reasonable and available.
