Couldn't be arsed to clean the table first

Oh gosh! A package?! A package upon which the addresses have been mysteriously blurred out? What could possibly be inside???

Oh gosh, I'm so excited, what could it beeee?

Balls of trash! Just what I've always wanted!

No, wait, it's... lurn keychains! What I've always wanted slightly more than balls of trash!

They look really nice. One of them is a bit concave, which makes me laugh. They're also hard as shit. I was expecting something a bit softer, I guess? Shrinkydinks are neat.

Sweet Snake agrees!

sharky shut up

Ah, mod applications. The whole business is terribly amusing. Everyone running around, making two-dimensional attempts to look good in front of staff so they'll get chosen.

What kills me is that people actually put "I mini-mod a lot" on their applications. A tip; we don't like minimods. It's one thing if someone reminds a new user that they can't advertise, but some people habitually use enforcing rules as an excuse to yell at users that annoy them.

You can't do that. You can't bend the rules and you can't dislike anybody.

Sure, there are people who I dislike on neurogalaxy. But I can't show that, not ever. A moderator is friendly and nice to everyone, regardless of how shitty they are. Even if they're practically spitting in your mouth, you've got to stand there and keep smiling. There have been times when I've been so pissed off I've had to leave the computer. But even then I haven't lashed out. I haven't said a thing.

The customer is always right. Just because we're nice doesn't mean we're not a business.

Also, on a completely unrelated matter:
