Medical commercials in a medical office (Post)So I'm starting a new job. As with many jobs, taking a drug test is part of the hiring process. This afternoon I went to a medical clinic near my home to take said test, since it's a convenient location and it's one of the places where my future employer is willing to pay for the test. I've been pretty healthy over the years - believe it or not, this is probably the first time I've had any sort of medical test done since I was a baby. But I digress.

I was sitting in the waiting area. In the corner of the room was a TV showing one of those corny "which wedding dress should she get" shows. TV being TV, it soon went to a commercial break. At that moment, I realized that medical-related commercials sound absolutely terrifying when you're in a doctor's office - even when you're there for the most mundane, lowest-risk procedure possible. There was an ad for a prescription drug with all its glorious side effects and warnings, as well as a suin' attorney promoting his class-action lawsuit against the maker of some questionable-quality medical product. That was about all I noticed before I went in to do... well, you probably know.

The moral of the story? There isn't one. Maybe doctor's offices should try to avoid TV channels that are constantly advertising pharmaceuticals and lawyers, but then again, that's the majority of TV channels these days. I guess the Cartoon Network might still be safe. Alternatively, they could put on streams of my games - not all of them involve drugs or lawyers.
Nite's art thread (Post)Nice! Looks like a tranquil yet slightly mysterious place.
A modified coffee pot. (UGLY MOD AHOY!) (Post)Neat! It might not be fancy, but it still lives! There's probably some practical things you could do with that.
What the hell am I reading? (Fowl Language Warning!) (Post)Yeah, that's seriously messed up. You don't have to look very hard to find some extremely toxic discourse on Twitter, but this is bad even by Twitter standards.

I don't pay attention to YouTube personalities, so I don't know much about TotalBiscuit. Regardless, the recently deceased deserve some respect, and if you're going on long monologues against random people on the Internet (especially people who have just passed away), you really need to re-evaluate what you're doing with your life.
Nite's art thread (Post)It's nice to see another one of these. Would it be all right if I used a couple of your recent pictures for a game project? This project might or might not see the light of day.
World Happiness Report (Post)http://worldhappiness.report/ed/2018/

This came out not too long ago. It's an interesting read - at least if you're OK with wading through lots of text.
Nite's art thread (Post)I like the colors and contrast on the latest one.
Nite's art thread (Post)The first one from yesterday is giving me some strong DKC vibes. Good stuff.
...How stupid do they think I am? (Post)A few days ago, I got a message on my old college e-mail account. I think another student's account got hacked, causing it to send out phishing e-mails purporting to be from a local credit union. The scam was fairly well-made, but the bad writing was a dead giveaway.

I don't get much e-mail spam these days, but I get lots of robocalls on my phone. IRS scams are especially fashionable.
Nite's art thread (Post)I'm glad you've gotten caught up on posting these, as these are quite impressive! Some of them would make for awesome video game backgrounds.
