blue_aeon: (Ten!Lem)
Today is week three of my job, and it's going great so far. As I have far better equipment at home (I nearly keeled over when I saw the system specs on their computers), I go in on Mondays for general feedback/admin work, and then spend the rest of the week working from home. Which is quite fortunate given how shocking some of the roads are in the current weather. With any luck I'll be able to get my iPod connect to the office wifi next week, because having net access on that thing is becoming a pain. And hopefully the next desk I'm sat at won't end up under a pile of my work.

Last week, though, I had a bit of a shock. I watch this internet show called "What The F*** is Wrong With You!?" which highlights shining examples of human stupidity, and in the latest episode we had the show's first death. So, who had the honour of being the person dumb enough to end up on there?

A guy my age from my local area, who overdosed on enough caffeine to, in the words of the host: "briefly allow him to see backwards in time."

What I didn't notice until I watched the episode again on Friday, though, was the guy's name. At which point I realised that not only did I live in the same area as this idiot, I knew this idiot. You see, this guy was actually an old school-friend of mine; and whose stand-out moment was an act of public indecency in the school playground aged 10 (lets just say he couldn't keep it in his pants).

And the worst part is that, once I got past the shock, I wasn't even surprised by how it happened. Why? Because my school year was infamous for being both completely insane and having little to no common sense, with my sister's year not far behind. Believe it or not, "caffeine overdose" is one of the less stupid things I've known my peers to do.

And I still cannot believe I've had to say that.
