I'm still using the stapler at work which I only found because at one time it was the highest rated stapler on amazon.
Now the highest rated stapler on amazon is a swingline, but I have one at home, and it isn't half as nice as this malaysian MAX.
I also often hear that the wirecutter is no longer reliable.
At some point, reviews became so powerful that they're now corrupt, and we can't have nice things.
Currently on a GMDSS (Global Maritime Distress & Safety System) course. It's like nine-hour days every day for the next fortnight, inc. both weekends, and it is flipping awful!
Most interesting thing so far:
How the origins of maritime safety radio are French, but the international language of radiotelephony is English, so the protocol is filled with things like DE (pronounced "from"), SEELONCE FEENEE (pronounced "Silence Fini"), and PAN-PAN (which originates from "panne", or "breakdown").
Is U.S. Economic Growth Over?
as Rumsfeld put it on the evening of 9/11, "We need to bomb something else to prove that we're, you know, big and strong and not going to be pushed around by these kinds of attacks."
Every major media has been spoiled for me. Game of Thrones? Coworkers.
Harry Potter? One friend borrowing the book from another inquires about Harry's fate. Why would you want to know BEFORE you read it?
Evangelion? As I approached the bookshelf to buy the manga having never seen the anime, two other people were discussing the ending.
I give up.
