You could always just become a US citizen and vote in Paul McCartney

-But Paul McCartney wasn't born in the US-

See that's where you're wrong.  The real Paul McCartney died in a car crash in 1966 and was replaced by William Campbell who was born and raised in the US, and is still acting as Paul today.

You may have to blow the Paul is Dead conspiracy wide open, but I think you could get Paul... or "Faul" to be president.

Ah but we’re special, DO. I’m sure the US government will make an exception for Holey and me. We would be great, glorious dictat... I mean... presidents.

While the 2 of you would undeniably be a great political force towards making the US a better place for all, both of you fail all 3 requirements to become a president and have never had any political power.

But there is a piece of unclaimed land in the Middle East that needs governing. That is, if you beat me in an election and can tolerate the harsh climate.

Anyways, for a real pet peeve:

Sheet music. I'd say i'm a pretty good guitarist but it takes me about 15 minutes to read a bar of music. However, if i were to have a musical career, i'd either want to be a session musician (a job nearly destroyed by computers) or a guitarist in an orchestra, but to be an orchestral guitarist, i have to sightread SHEET MUSIC.

If you're reading this, you are looking for something to do.

ASJ and Holey are going to rule the US now, that’s just a fact we have to accept. Restrictions tremble at the sound of their names! No rules will stand in their way!

You could learn how to read it - it isn't too hard to get the basics, if you try you'd be able to sightread pretty quickly before the end of the year

Group projects will be the death of me. Am doing a database project with 2 fellow noobs, and one girl just isn't showing up to group meetings and doesn't go to class anyways, so I said to the lad in the group "don't send anything to her, she'll just take it and not actually do anything herself. Let her do her own work or no work at all".

I've had enough of freeloaders in my first two years of college. She sends us as a message today going "hey guys, should we deal out the roles?", "No problem", I reply and send her to do something we've already done, to see if she can actually do it.

 

BLOODY IDIOT LAD IN THE GROUP PROJECT GOES AND POSTS THE WORKINGS WE'VE DONE SO SHE SEES IT AND GOES "yep, looks good".

FOR     EFOF;IHIO;GEPJWEOPHJEAP'HWJ[EHA       SAKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Could have bloody broken my laptop I was that annoyed at him. Never mind he's a bloody Erasmus student so only needs to the pass the module- i.e. get 40% and happily walk off, I want at least 70% in this thing! 

 

God , I'm so annoyed! She's fecking off abroad next week as well, so that's another week lost. She's bloody getting marked as doing 15% of the work if she keeps going the way she is!

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8On top of that, isn't everyone an ambivert? (Someone who has a mixture of introverted and extroverted qualities) 

Tall, dark-haired QuarryMan likes basketball, music, and naturally, boys. He was a valuable participant on the track team. He is one of Freeport's great contributors to the recording world. As for the immediate future, QuarryMan has no plans, but will take life as it comes.

No, the definition is subtly different. It's a balance of introverted and extroverted qualities. So no, while most people are ambiverts, there are definitely some people who are far enough to one side of the continuum who are true intro/extroverts.

Sorry lads ye're going to be hearing a lot of crap about jobs for the next few months (I don't know if I'm even going straight into work anyways!).

 

But pet peeve:

All the phoney snowflake-y terms companies have adopted to make themselves (or their employees, who the heck knows) feel special. One of the companies I saw you're not an 'employee', you're a 'guru'. As much as I would love putting 'guru' down on my CV in 5 years time, I do realise that I am not a 4 year old and the title guru isn't that desirable to me.

 

Similarly HR being Talent Management- a spade is a spade, lads!

It's surprising how creative people in business can be over the most pointless garbage just to make it appear more impressive. Takes 45 minutes to figure out what they are talking about when they are rolling out terms so pretentious.

It’s like calling us “contributors” instead of “users”- pardon my French but it’s a load of wank.
