Lots of great entries.

Time to pick a winner...

I like this pic because it's literally big money, and it's kinda funny.

The new Image Boss is leftdisconnected!

Sorry, guys. I lost my Internet connection pretty much the moment that I was selected Sad and was down for a couple of days. I was, in fact, trying to come here to check on threads when my phone died and ultimately had to be factory reset.

I live in a rural area and my primary Internet options are either 21.6 kilobit dial-up (seriously, and my father still uses dial-up daily) and a very weak (-120dB, which only works due to miraculous advances in phone modems in recent years) Verizon LTE signal that only works in one particular spot in my home. (let’s skip the discussion of current satellite options)

I lose all Internet access quite frequently and encourage people to step in and take over Image Boss responsibilities, as needed Smile . I won’t be offended at all, and intend this message merely to apologize and explain why I may occasionally disappear. Sometimes Life intervenes, but more often than not I’ve simply been, umm… disconnected.

Though my username has multiple meanings, one of them is simply that people like me have been “left disconnected” by the Internet revolution and this is no longer the same nation that provided universal access to electricity in the 1930’s and 40’s; we’re now too poor to tackle such projects and wireless technologies allow for more confusion about who is actually being served; coverage maps somehow became, like an expanding array of other things, acceptable lies. One benefit of wires was that it was entirely obvious whether or not those wires ran to our homes and businesses Wink .


Again, sorry for disappearing… this is one reason I hold back many images until after a contest is over; I’d rather someone else win as I don’t feel like a reliable boss Wink . I won’t continue to fill the thread with this off-topic stuff, but wanted to explain myself.

I would rather stand in a que for 30 minutes than use one of those scan and go machines.

I self scan my stuff at Walmart all the time.

The line is usually shorter at the self check out, so that's what I do.

I’m gonna call it a lil early. RC nailed it pretty well with the scan machine mocking “Investing in American Jobs”
Here in Oregon you are not allowed to pump your own gas. Not for safety concerns, butt rather job security for thousands of low income workers.

Hey, robots need jobs, too.

 

Funny(?) thing is, I know someone who claims that he “gets a discount” at those machines. Despite the camera right above him looking down, he and a buddy go and pick up a half-dozen items or so, yakking at the checkout, ie, looking like they’re not paying attention to the scan process at all but are engrossed in conversation.

Scan, scan, scan, go through the motions but not let it scan (finger over the UPC, UPC on the side of the package instead of facing down, etc.), scan, scan, and he can pay for 5 items but let the 6th one “slip on by” into his bag.

I wouldda thought there’d be some protection specifically against letting something like that happen (like those cameras), but…

Here your scanned items get checked by weight too, so if more weight end in your shopping bag than that you have scanned and the computer know what it weigh.

Not quite sure how they do it, cuz not all things are consistent weight.

Also some discount wholesale stores are dropping the self serve checkout.

Me i have no problems as due to my dislike to my fellow Danes i only shop at times where i will find few of them there too.
Funny thing, i would not mind one bit to be in a American store with black Friday crowds, other nationalities don’t have the same negative effect on me.

Thanks!

I'm in the mood for something happy.

As the new Image Boss, show me cute baby animals.

Had never seen a baby Ringtail Possum before (they’re nocturnal) until I spied one in a branch hollow with a C8 a couple of days ago. (source)

Animal cruelty? Absolutely Wink .

I don’t want to know anyone who would do such a thing Facepalm . Dress yourself in stupid costumes all you want; leave your pet out of it.


Full disclosure: This is just my opinion and I don’t actually get upset if you put a ridiculous costume on your pet, but I do honestly think it’s stupid and probably embarrassing, at least to dogs; you can’t actually hurt a cat’s feelings, though they’ll hate you more desperately, regardless
