All three of them stem from Greek mythology (I think?), so grouping them under the name of a different Greek monster (the original chimera, see Bellephoron) seems confusing in that context.

I don't know what the word would be though.

I thought you thought it was a slip because I said 'Jake's partners' instead of 'Roadrunner7671.'

The church I work at is the most comically inept place to ever work in. It's like a Dilbert comic strip come to life. I am the only rational person there, I swear. Getting anything done there that needs to be done is like the business equivalent of Vietnam. It's unwinnable. The leadership is a complete joke, and there's bureaucratic red tape wherever you go.

What are satyrs, centaurs and mermaids classified as? Creatures who have the upper half of a human but the lower half of something else. Is there a word for all of those?

https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20100311083438AAhhAaM

Suggests "therianthrope" as a possiblity.

Wikipedia suggests "Centauroid creature" or "mythological hybrid".

The best reason to lynch Haddock is the meltdown we get to witness on the wagon runup. I mean, we should totally wagon him every day just for the lulz.

The church I work at

I'm lacking some cultural context here.  What does that involve?  The churches I've come across don't have anything resembling staff, and certainly not enough to develop an attendant bureaucracy.

Happy birthday to me!

Happy Birthday, RR :-) Hope to get to play in a Mafia game with you soon!
(Are many other people here super-young?)
There are two people around my age and one closer to 16. It's hard to tell though
I'm still 13!

Wow, you're pretty old. Have you considered contacting the Guinness World Records?

If there's ever a line where I get sick of factorial jokes, I don't want to cross it.

It's pretty relaxed where I work at, but there are business-like policies and budgets and things like that. There's also incompetent leadership that belittles everyone who makes a mistake or even brings up inconvenient truths like sound equipment breaking down, because that involves money. Nobody in the higher-ups has any idea about technology, and they expect the team I work for to just get it done without any money, which is going to only work for so long.

Don't worry, it's like that pretty much everywhere.

Talked to the neighbor yesterday and somewhere in the conversation he was telling me about his cousin who has a grandson and the cousin with the grandson just had a son. It took me forever to figure out that the grandson just had a new uncle and not some other crazy cousin concoction.

Common premise: When you are teleported, the old you is disintegrated and a new you is built complete with memories.

Story idea: The first stages of teleportation research where they haven't figured out how to retain the memories.

Reminds me of Steins;Gate, although it's about time travel, not just teleportation.

I have not. It's been on my radar, but the fact that you bring this up as a direct response to my musing brings it a little closer on my radar.

If you like that kind of thing, then I'd recommend trying the Zero Escape series of visual novel games. I'm currently playing the first one (9 Hours, 9 Doors, 9 Persons or some permutation of the same) after finally getting around to finishing the second one (Virtue's Last Reward) and will get the third one (Time Dilemma, I think) on the Nintendo e-Shop at some point to round out the story. From what I know of the plots, there's a lot of reference to the typical things like Schrodinger's Cat and the like, made relevant because a major plot point and mechanic of the games is that the protagonist of each game, and often some other characters, is occasionally able to remember things that happened in another timeline where you made different decisions, and indeed the big reveal at the end of Virtue's Last Reward is that everything was done with the aim of sending the protagonist's mind back in time to prevent a disaster. And from what I've been told of Time Dilemma, not only do most of the characters have the same or similar ability, but between bits of the story they're given anaesthetic and amnesiac drugs so that neither you nor they are entirely sure what things happen in what order, or even in the same timeline.

The VN (which I sadly have yet to play) is coming to Steam next month!

I had seven soft drinks today, from about noon to 10 PM. It's 3:30 AM and my 'sugar high' still isn't gone. When I crash I think I might pass out. Or I might accidentally pull a all nighter.
