Last night I sat for about 9 minutes at a red light. Not just what felt like 9 minutes, I actually started timing it after a couple minutes. The sensor or whatever was broken; eventually a car pulled up behind me, and the light changed almost right after they arrived.

The sensors are located about a car length back at certain intersections. Sometimes it's optimal to back up if you are the only one waiting to turn.

Yeah, I was getting ready to try that when I saw the other car approaching.

I don't play Mafia, so I'm not part of your crew, but I'm doing Pokemon Go. Not as serious as others, but the research gets me more involved than before.

Does anyone think it's odd that our mouths are used for so many functions? If you were going to design a person would you have separate facilities for eating, breathing, speaking, etc. Also I feel like we could end up just dropping verbal speech.
Fun fact: newborn babies can breathe through their noses while suckling using their mouths. We lose this ability at some point later.

So, I'm the only adult who can drink water continuously and breathe through my nose at the same time?

Well, this sample size of 1 cannot maintain that over here.

So Elon musk supposedly has done an hour long interview with the NYT about stuff.

I tried to find the actual interview. What I found was countless articles talking about it and how people reacted to it and what have you. I also found lots of articles claiming that the NYT published the actual interview. The sentence then links to another whatever article of the NYT where some snippets of the interview are quoted, but not to the actual interview.

Either I am for some reason incapable of finding the supposedly available interview or it hasn't in fact been published. If so then every article claiming it has been published is total bullshit. Are they all just making stuff up? This is so stupid. I'm so frustrated right now.

You can breathe while swallowing?

Yeah, I just tried it to be certain. It requires some concentration and I'm pretty sure I can only do it from a bottle like container where there is a very small opening and the flow is relatively small and easily controlled. I essentially just pour the liquid down my throat and breathe through my nose. I think with some practice I could possibly even breathe through my mouth while doing it. The basic idea is to pour the water down the esophagus while breathing through the trachea. Complications occur when liquid enters the trachea or the swallowing action of the esophagus closes off the trachea. Both complications can be mitigated with some concentration.

I assume you are alternating breathing and swallowing? Not actually doing both at the same time? Like, water might be continually flowing into your mouth, but its only being swallowed intermittently.

After a discussion with my girlfriend, we did some calculations and concluded that the circumference of the Earth is approximately 300 megapenises. Just thought you should all know.

...spin-offs are still better for all of the previously cited reasons.
But not strictly better, because the spinoff can have a different cost than the expansion.

Damn metric system. Everyone knows that it just makes more sense to explain 300 megapenises as 849 omniscrotes.

I was going to talk about Super Smash Bros Ultimate and how I'm hyped for the game since the inclusion of King K. Rool from the Donkey Kong Country series. Now the topic of Nintendo suddenly seems gross. Dsell, I would appreciate if you took your porn elsewhere.

Yes, me too! Ridley's inclusion was the point where I realized that they really mean it with that "Everyone is here" catchphrase.

I'm in so many meetings this morning that I accidentally sat in on one that turns out I was not invited to. I realized their conversation was not relevant to me and slinked out to return for the next meeting.

This is why I won't pursue management. Managers get stuck in meetings and shit.
