      For that matter, prophet-driven medical care ain't too great, either.

      • Man I had a ton of problems with cavities as a kid and my dentist was a mean son of a bitch who blamed me when his hand slipped and gouged open my gums and I sat there coughing up blood. It taught me to do better, at least toothwise. Nothing wrong with them in decades but since Friday I've had this constant pain there, I can't tell if it's one tooth (probably preferable, maybe an old filling loosening) or several (root issues?) but the pain wasn't going away at all so I have an appointment tomorrow. So the pain, I hate the pain. At least it is (ideally) temporary, and so many people have it worse.

        • Well, this is unfortunate. I'm going to go back to university on 21 February....

          And really now, I'm probably going to fail something, again.

          • My phone lying to me about my level of battery charge. It went from 40% to 10% in less than 25 minutes of light Internet browsing, down to 5% after another two minutes, and now it’s hovered at 1% for over ten.

              Sounds like you need a new battery

                To be fair, I've been needing that. It's just gotten ridiculous lately, is all.

                    Most UI lies to us about percentages because our brains are really bad at statistical analysis, so programmers tweak things to be more in line with what our brains expect those numbers to mean instead of what they actually mean. This is more of a thing in video games, but I’d be surprised if it wasn’t also going on with things like battery charge percent displayed on our phones. Although in your case it does sound like your battery is just shot.

                      • When someone you stopped talking to because of their toxic behavior sends you a message asking if your still friends while including the language that made you stop talking to them in the first place

                            • That's about as horrible as I'd expect from him. It's not like we need context though. Sometimes I just remember how much I despise him even if I don't hold on to it long enough to get around to sharing.
