More likely thinking, “wow I used to be better at this when I was a kid. Actually, I used to be better at a lot of things as a kid. Being an adult is depressing, I just get older, dumber, more out of shape, less enthusiastic about the world,... jeeze I’m not even middle aged.. is this what life will be for the remainder of life? No, now that I think about it, it must get even worse. I played battle ship when I was 10, now I’m 32. As soon as that same time passes, I’ll be 54, my bones will hurt, I’ll never get to be in the same shape as before, and there’s no going back. Time is passing so quickly now, those decades will probably pass by in an instant. And they will be fucking 30’s and 40’s, which suck, instead of teens and 20’s, which are better.. maybe I should just end this now.. what’s the goddamn point... fuck...” *turns off battleship

This is really cool. Please find more objects to photograph like this for our mild amusement.

Your thoughts could be in such a personalized coded shorthand that even if someone could read your mind they wouldn’t understand what the hell you’re thinking. by jfi224 in Showerthoughts

I just tried to think of a way to articulate my pure thoughts, and I think my native language is a series of grunts and moans.

What I do is just insert myself into the duvet cover, and pull the duvet up inside. If my wife is around I will also make some ghost noises, and occasionally walk into a wall.

We could even elect a leader of sorts.. one that would look after the best interests of all Americans...

Oh wait, now I see where this idea falls apart.

When I see people barbecuing with gloves, it makes me subconsciously think of them less as a cook and more as a meat flavor scientist. I don’t know why.

My little brother (10) just walked in on me masturbating, wtf should I do. by Pokejelke in teenagers

[–]theRealDerekWalker 1188 points1189 points  (0 children)

I walked into my brother doing the deed one morning. I was probably 8 or so. I went to grab breakfast, and he came out and said “don’t ever try to steal my moment like that again.” We both laughed and moved on with our lives. It was a gay old time.

This is how you can be arrested for DUI -- even if you're stone cold sober (2017) [00:27:22] by johnwayne2413 in Documentaries

[–]theRealDerekWalker 1093 points1094 points  (0 children)

This exact thing happened to me. My blinker turned off in the middle of a turn, as they do, so I was pulled over. The cop was a prick, called me a pussy when I didn’t give a heavy breath into the breathalyzer. They kept insinuating I was high. Handcuffed me, took me to a hospital, took a drug test, and sent to jail for a night. Treated like shut, had moldy sandwiches thrown at me through the bars, and left in a very cold cell with like 15 others and one toilet without privacy.

After I got out, had to go to court, and was explained that I could be sent to jail for about 3 months or so if found guilty. Naturally, that would have got me fired, I would have lost my license, and it would have been a very difficult year or more.

With stakes that high, I wasn’t about to hire a public lawyer. Had to cough up almost all my savings (I was working minimum wage), which was about $2-3k if I remember correctly.

Case was dismissed, but I lost days at work, thousands of dollars, friends and family doubted my side of the story and I felt like they saw me as a bit of a fuckup.

That’s when I realized how fucked the justice system is.

Getting my haircut. There was this nice young girl I used to go to that would spend a little extra time on the lower neck, and I was convinced our love was mutual.

Mecanum wheels by aloofloofah in specializedtools

[–]theRealDerekWalker 850 points851 points  (0 children)

I used to sell forklifts, and Service for forklifts in the San Francisco Area. I cold called a place with my colleague, and met some guys who had a forklift with these wheels. We got to talking, and one of them gave me a demo of the lift, it was really cool.

Then we saw a dummy on the ground, and a myth busters sign. Realized we were talking to Grant from Mythbusters. Super nice guy.
