  • An example of your laziness if you please.

    My whole life is lazy. My usual day consists of taking kids to school. Going back to bed. Get up. Flop on couch until it’s time to pick them up again.

    I am the laziest person I’ve ever met. Just got up. Already looking forward to today’s nap.

    A good example of my laziness is I started stripping some wallpaper in the hall. It’s now two years later and I still haven’t finished it.


    I think this story takes some beating:

    I was once on a US military ship, having breakfast in the wardroom (officers lounge) when the Operations Officer (OPS) walks in. This guy was the definition of NOT a morning person; he’s still half asleep, bleary eyed… basically a zombie with a bagel. He sits down across from me to eat his bagel and is just barely conscious. My back is to the outboard side of the ship, and the morning sun is blazing in one of the portholes putting a big bright-ass circle of light right on his barely conscious face. He’s squinting and chewing and basically just remembering how to be alive for today. It’s painful to watch.
    But then zombie-OPS stops chewing, slowly picks up the phone, and dials the bridge. In his well-known I’m-still-totally-asleep voice, he says “heeeey. It’s OPS. Could you… shift our barpat… yeah, one six five. Thanks.” And puts the phone down. And then he just sits there. Squinting. Waiting.
    And then, ever so slowly, I realize that that big blazing spot of sun has begun to slide off the zombie’s face and onto the wall behind him. After a moment it clears his face and he blinks slowly a few times and the brilliant beauty of what I’ve just witnessed begins to overwhelm me. By ordering the bridge to adjust the ship’s back-and-forth patrol by about 15 degrees, he’s changed our course just enough to reposition the sun off of his face. He’s literally just redirected thousands of tons of steel and hundreds of people so that he could get the sun out of his eyes while he eats his bagel. I am in awe.
    He slowly picks up his bagel and for a moment I’m terrified at the thought that his own genius may escape him, that he may never appreciate the epic brilliance of his laziness (since he’s not going to wake up for another hour). But between his next bites he pauses, looks at me, and gives me the faintest, sly grin, before returning to gnaw slowly on his zombie bagel.

    Now that is stunning. Medal to that man!

    That’s wonderful 😀

    Some sysadmins I know once shared a house, and had an IRC channel dedicated to discussion of what takeaway to order from, just so they didn’t have to leave their rooms.


    I’ve had 10 or so foot square paint sample blocks on my living room wall for 15 years now. I never did decide on a colour and now I’ve got too much stuff in the room so it’s too much hassle to move/cover everything in order to paint :p
