<Flibberdy> Eule: :D On a related note, last year a jar fell off the top of our fridge and hit our fuse box. It knocked out a 1000A fuse.. but nothing happened in our house
<Antior> Flibberdy: what does anyone need 1000 amps for? 0_o
<Eule> Flibberdy: ...what Antior said. 100 A maybe?
<Flibberdy> We were confused and then figured the fuse must not be live. I went to plug it back in and there was a rather impressive arc of electricity.. so I stopped that
<Bucket> LENS FLARE!
<Flibberdy> a few minutes later an electrician knocked at our door..
<Rena> haha
<Flibberdy> turns out that fuse controls the entire electrical supply of our next door neighbour's house

Mud: *cynicism
Freudian: ellipsis: cynicism is a worldview, sarcasm is a form of communication

Freudian: Cynicism is the refusal to accept that the world can sometimes be a nice place
Freudian: Sarcasm is just saying one thing to imply the opposite
athan: <cynicism>Noone really knows for sure anyway</cynicism>
ellipsis: thanks a lot, great help

<@khmer> the new foreman is being shown around the gigantic underground warehouse by his brother, the freight elevator operator, who got him the job. they pass by the refrigeration unit as the elevator is descending the many floors to the bottom of the warehouse, and a blast of frigid air hits them both.
<@khmer> the foreman knows he is underqualified and fundamentally irresponsible, and his substance abuse problem has lost him plenty of jobs, but his brother wanted to give him another chance
<@khmer> the foreman feels the blast of cool air like the breath of a watchful god, poised to smite him should he betray his kin another time
<@khmer> "what was that blast of air", he says gingerly to his stoic brother
<@khmer> his brother says "that's the refrigeration unit, on the 4th floor."
<@khmer> a long and uncomfortable silence passes between the two brothers
<@khmer> both of them feeling the weight of expectation upon their shoulders
<@khmer> tacitly, the foreman feels his brother's mounting disgust with his lack of preparation. he knew this was a food warehouse. he knew there would be refrigeration. but it had slipped his mind.
<@khmer> every moment, every motion feels like a cringe. he loves his brother and is grateful for the second chance, but he doesn't have the words
<@khmer> he was taught not to use the words
<@khmer> he was taught to turn up the television or to leave and go buy mom a pack of dunhills
<@khmer> his brother got all the luck anyway, all of the good fortune and all of the second chances
<@khmer> and despite his mother's blatant favoritism, his congenital scoliosis, the chain of foolish devotions to soulless women, the learning disability
<@khmer> he still found himself feeling ashamed, though he had accomplished more in a material sense than his brother--the precise kind of sense that all his loved ones told him was the only sense that matters
<@khmer> his emotions collapse into themselves, their complex miasma balling up into a black shame
<@khmer> he forgets that his brother might love him, and knows in the bleak center of it all that he must go through the motions
<@khmer> the elevator inches lower, passing by the refrigeration unit
<@khmer> the elevator operator looks at the new foreman, at his image in the wrecked spirit, at his blood in the dust
<@khmer> the silence of longing and voiceless love and anger and fear and regret
<@khmer> he can think of nothing to say about the refrigeration unit, but knows that his brother is expecting comment, and he would do anything to escape the deafening silence
<@khmer> the silence of longing and voiceless love and anger and fear and regret
<@khmer> so as the blast of icy air relents, over the creak of the elevator, he says
<@khmer> "cool story, bro."
