Also, cooked goose and other mumblings.


I applied the advice I got earlier about cooking goose and it turned out nice, not gamey at all.

Supposedly goose breast is a lot better with the skin and fat still on but the enjoyment to effort ratio doesn't makes sense to me.

Next time we get goose I'll try jerky, effort level zero when the plan was already to sit around the fire all day.


I always thought I was the victim of constant random dumbfuckery but something more sinister and organized may be at play:

    Insist on doing everything through “channels.” Never permit short-cuts to be taken in order to expedite decisions.
    When possible, refer all matters to committees, for “further study and consideration.” Attempt to make the committee as large as possible — never less than five.
    Bring up irrelevant issues as frequently as possible.
    Haggle over precise wordings of communications, minutes, resolutions.
    Refer back to matters decided upon at the last meeting and attempt to re-open the question of the advisability of that decision.
    Advocate “caution.” Be “reasonable” and urge your fellow-conferees to be “reasonable” and avoid haste which might result in embarrassments or difficulties later on.


I wish I was as organized/diligent/effective IRL as I am in Kerbal Space Program.

I wish getting along with people was as easy as rocket science.

The "free market" concept of bullshit jobs has organically produced the behavior the CIA was looking to use to disrupt organizations. No conspiracy is needed.

I finally understand $boss and $incompetent_middle_manager. They're CIA operatives! Their behavior does not make sense otherwise.

as befits my sunny disposition. Nothing in it prepares you for the true soul-sucking experience of working in a "can't do" environment.
