I presume they’re trying to show the growth of the growth, ie. in February they gained 240 jobs which is some % up from the last month. There there are several problems with this including a missing axis and a time period too short to rule out passing and seasonal effects.
This shit better work
HAH I REBLOGGED THIS LAST NIGHT AND LOOK WHAT I GOT FROM MY DAD TODAY OUT OF THE BLUE
what if we all got paper lol
This post is just darling!
The last time this happened as described on August was 2008. Last time in any month was March 2013.
This will not happen August of 2837. Our current calendar wasn’t even around in 1191, but if it was, this wouldn’t have happened in August of that year. Also, while I’m not any kind of authority, I don’t think this has anything to do with Feng Shui, which is largely concerned with directional orientation.
But I’ll give them this, at least they’re correct about this month’s calendar.

The ones who put their one file neatly into a folder inside an arbitrarily numbered folder inside a gamez folder inside the main folder,
And the ones who say, “Oh no no, I’m in the big league here” and dump their files in the main folder.
That’s funny at first I thought it was just a compression wave and then I looked at the individual lines, saw them changing thickness, and realized it was supposed to be 3D, and then I could see it. It’s like the spinning dancer but for 2D/3D.

At the end of my shift I was asked to give a break to a cashier on the other side of the store, and I quickly went over and filled in for this coworker, who said she was supposed to take a break 40 minutes ago and was at the end of her rope because the other cashier on her side was gone. She took back some recovery with her. An old woman came by five minutes later and demanded to know where the clothes she left were. I called the cashier over the intercom who came running back, and when I asked about the items she said she’d just taken them, so she left to get them back. The customer started complaining to me, saying “There’s no excuse.” In just a couple minutes the cashier returned with all the clothes and apologized a few times. She stayed for a bit, explaining how she’d turned to a co-worker and asked where these clothes came from, and neither of them knew. After she left the customer turned back to me and spent the rest of the transaction complaining about her, using the phrase “there’s no excuse” several times. She then demanded I give her a coupon she’d forgotten, and when I said the one she asked for was expired she interjected, “How do you know!” but ultimately settled for a nearly-as-good coupon, making sure she could do a repurchase “when I find that my coupon is good.”
The exchange delayed the other cashier long enough that I had to stay 15 or 20 minutes after my shift longer than I would have.
I was doing headshots of physicians for a local hospital.
Client: Yeah, this is no good. You need to Photoshop this one. He looks too mysterious.
Client: Yes. We don’t want our doctors looking mysterious.
I still haven’t figured out what they meant by “mysterious”. I ended up removing a few crow’s feet and that seemed to suffice in removing any “mystery”.
I like this. When I get crow’s feet, heaven willing I live long enough, I’ll say, “I’m not getting older. I’m getting more mysterious!”

It’s already Back To School season.
Then as soon as school starts comes Halloween Season.
Then after Halloween comes Thanksgiving.
And that’s just Christmas which brings us straight through into next year.
The year is over, basically.
