Good morning. I took a really nice bath yesterday – placed my phone on the tub ledge so I could listen to music through the water.

Good morning. I told my wife that Panko breadcrumbs are the best and that we should accept no substitute. She was sceptical.

Anyway. We keep a box stocked, and today I opened it. Well played, @ashleykrista, well played. [cw food]

Both of the first photos have huge “in denial about being in the closet” energy. And the second photos, well, they speak for themselves 🤗🥰🏳️‍🌈

Sometimes a good morning comes around and I don’t even know how an image made it into my camera roll to post. But I have to post good morning, can’t emphasize that enough. Must post good morning.

what new hardware could it possibly be detecting? is this elevator even able to connect to Windows Update, to search for software? who can say. who indeed can say.

I personally reject any elevator that even HINTS that it might be internet-connected 🙅‍♂️

Also I can’t stress enough that when I saw this Windows wizard on the elevator, I nearly dropped my phone rushing to get a picture of it.

“This will be perfect for the good morning thread”, I thought, and I was a thousand percent correct.

Good morning. I’m working from home. Going to give these coworkers a scathing performance review.

When I go outside in NYC I see fewer than a quarter of pedestrians, cyclists, runners wearing a mask. Lots of “I put on a mask initially but then lowered it to cover my chin instead of my face” maneuvers too.

@ashfurrow oh noes a burger joint is in on the 5G death rays!

*plugs in £339 USB key that was e-waste* now I'm protected!

@yakkoj @ashfurrow Those don't need to be plugged in, plugging them in only boosts there range.

🤦

@ashfurrow
I already have a dislike for elevators. I got in one that after selecting the floor played a windows 3.1 chime and announced the floor. I immediately exited and used the stairs.

@ashfurrow "going down" has a new meaning in internet connected elevator

@ashfurrow fwiw all the elevators I've worked w/ 1) the mechanical important bits are tuned & tested by people who know exactly how much pressure it takes to crush a human skull. (elevator tech conversations can get morbid.) 2) the phone line inside is still analog, at least to the carrier punchdown. everything else is fluff, & doesn't control anything important.
3) if the slip showing the elevator was inspected recently isn't posted, ask to see it.
that said, I work w/risk adverse people who hate windows.

@ischade yeah, I have no doubt the systems are quite separate. It’s just, very very funny to me. A wifi connected elevator, what a concept folks!

@ashfurrow *smh*
sample conversation:
c: "the new occupants want to surf while in the elevator."
m: "I don't suppose you pointed out that they're in a metal box, aka a Faraday cage, and they can wait however many seconds it takes to get to the right floor?"
c: "nope. when can you make this happen?"
m: "do I have to hide the antennas?"
c: *gives me a 'why are you asking questions you already know the answer to' look*
m: *sigh*

@trickster we all learn in high school that virus is stored in the neckbeard

@ashfurrow I frankly don't understand it. Like.. let's trade a small bit of discomfort for better protection against the surveillance state, and getting to normal sooner, and this is a problem?!? Why?!
