Well, it’s Friday. An arbitrary day on the calendar that we made important. Celebrate. Overnight, Burberry acted like posh geese, the Miami Dolphins did bad and the whole USB clusterboink raged on.
Burberry burns unsold merchandise so the poor won’t get hold of it.
Burberry is an international institution. It got to the top of the thatched tree for one solitary reason: it acts exactly like the customer base it sells to. Crazy, unreasonable and a smidge entitled. In news newly to hand (or wrapped around one’s neck or waist), the grand old, twice-divorced maven of Britfashion burned many piles of their unsold merchandise to “protect their brand”.
Burberry burnt $37.8 million in clothes and beauty products last year to stop them being sold at a discount https://t.co/cLGD5DJZhK

The subtext at play, is denying the poor. It was all in aid so we, the unwashed, broke masses couldn’t get their merch on the cheap. I mean, as far as stupid nonsense elitist bonfires go, at least it’d be a great smelling one. Eat your heart out, you book-burning Nazis. You had to endure that in Hugo Boss. For shame.
The Miami Dolphins enact punishment system to stop their players kneeling.
Wanted. A new NFL team to support. Must have a lack of success, a deluded fanbase and treat their employees like actual people. Overnight, the Miami Dolphins (a team I have supported since Madden ’94 on the Mega Drive), decided to enact a series of measures to combat players kneeling for the national anthem.
AP reporting that the Dolphins will enforce a new policy this season called the “Proper Anthem Conduct.” Players who protest on the field during the national anthem could be suspended up to 4 games, be hit with a fine or both.

Is it legal? Sure. Questionable, absolutely.
Under the CBA, the maximum discipline for conduct detrimental to the club is a fine of 1 week’s salary or a suspension of up to 4 games. Very rare for any player to be suspended 4 games, for anything. https://t.co/QSbKswPS04

Well, it’s been a sweet ride atop the chattering porpoise of disappointment, but it’s time to send you to the tuna factory, dudes.
Let’s talk about S(U), E (S), X(B).
As a single entity, it is difficult to find someone to port with. Much like the lies you endure in your dating world, it too, happens in the digital one. Compatibility is an important thing, and sometimes there’s not enough firmware in the world to make it work. Two words: Motherboard issues. Despite the fact that we’re of two disparate worlds, we do share some crossover.
I don’t think I have ever, even once in my life, plugged a USB cable in right-side up on the first try.

In your world, I understand that correctly plugging something into a USB is something that is only achieved on the second or third attempt. We face the same, and a similar amount of furious importance is placed on it. It needs to be done, and it needs to be done now. Folders must be filled, and hard-drives populated. You know what I’m talking about. But while we all want to hear the electronic moan of success, invariably we’re denied, and we’re asked, as you are, if it’s in yet?
