I was thinking maybe some crazy KISS-style eye makeup.

I never used windows XP, but whatever this new OS is called, it's pretty terrible.

I need to get an Apple again.

Not kissing, Kiss the band...you know face paint, black leather, horrible, repetitive music.

Kiss the band? What if I don't want to?

(Maybe Beth will.)

If you can't actually think of something witty, inane, or vulgar to say, why say anything?

Wait, that sounds like I'm suggesting those are the only three reasons to... eh, whatever. That's fine.

You'll understand when you've passed an arbitrary threshold of presumed competence based on a metric not directly related to that competence, and people become willing to treat you like an actual thinking human being.

Just so you know, no such threshold seems to exist in retail work. People don't ever feel it is time to treat cashiers like actual thinking human beings.

Heh.

In this case the threshold I had in mind was "post count," but other thresholds like "age" also fit.

No no, it's not raise your voice and hope they understand you. The American way is this:

When in a foreign country you must speak extra loud and slow, and get very angry if people do not instantly understand you and then blame them for being uneducated barbarians with monopoly money.

I believe it is in the constitution.

I'd say Canada. But you decide.

Canadian money.

English money.

French money.

Mexican money.

Monopoly money.

Where I grew up, that's how we referred to Canadian money.

Sadly, Canadian money is worth as much as if not more than US money...so the joke's really on us now.
