Use a clip-on. Most won't care to notice, unless you bother to point it out.
Clip-ons are a bit dorky.

I kind of wish bolo ties were more socially acceptable to wear outside of Texas.

A problem for fast food restaurant managers and no one else.
I wouldn't go that far. That have been easy escapes from clip-on tie fires that have nothing to do with restaurants. Also, it's hard to get chocked or have your tie yanked when it's a clip-on. Assuming you're getting in or someone started a fight. I gave you a few more benefits. Choice is yours: either start learning the regular ties, or do clip-ons for the fast way.

I offer no defense or plea for mercy and accept deserved public and private judgement. I will only state that I agonized over my decision several sleepless nights, ultimately unable to continue a playing a game in anything other way than what the developers intended.

* I had to also buy a goddamn vertical bracket just make it fit in my case.

You know I kind of like the aesthetic of the GPU being like that, but I hear it totally fucks with the cooling.

Ok, sorta outdated example, but US army bomber crews in WW2 would wear ties, and be told to remove them in the event of crash landing. Why they didn't just dispense with the things altogether...

Confirmed today that I'm being laid off. So that sucks.
At least the severance package is pretty good from what I understand (though I don't have it in writing yet).

Ten bucks says they wore them to the briefing and as soon as they were in the bombers those fuckers came off and got stuffed into a pocket.

A downside of getting vaccinated is that your body's response is in quite a few ways the same (though usually less severe) as actually catching the disease. So now the day after my latest 'VID and flu shots I'm tired and achey all over.

Yeah, day after my first covid shot I felt like not great, though not too bad. Later ones were ok.

Sorry to hear. On to bigger and better soon, hopefully.

Hmm, this looks like an interesting youtube channel. *watches a few videos* *Googles them*

Oh, the first results take me to stuff about how we shouldn't start witch-hunts, the creator of the channel is innocent until proven guilty, it's his word against several women.

...

Ah. On the plus side, he was removed/stepped down last month, so there's that.

Wow, sorry to hear that. At least the package is good. Hopefully, a bounce back doesn't take too long.

You wouldn't happen to be from VMware, would you? My girlfriend is going through the same thing. It's been hell for her for a month now waiting to see if the axe will fall, and it was supposed to be announced today. Hope you get another opportunity soon.

Shit dude, sorry to hear that, hope the severance package sees you through to a new job and it's better than the old one.
