“huck”, “dude” – all irritate me. Don’t know why and don’t care,
Huck and dude are words dude, not phrases. Probably not a massive mystery as to why you dislike them.If the word “Huck” was banned tomorrow people would still huck their bikes – they’d just call it a different word, and you’d still be bitter at your innability to do it, dude.

“we’ve got all the quality rocket fuel we need, now it just needs pointing in the right direction”
Is that a reference to Korea? Aa metaphore you hadn’t thought through? A sly hint we should all be looking for jobs elswhere at AWE?Posted 8 years ago
Its a catch 22 situation
Catch 22 is an amazing book by Joseph Heller. “There was only one catch, and that was catch 22”. As an example, in the war, you didn’t have to fly bombing missions if you were crazy, but Catch 22 said anyone applying to be stood down from bombing because it was driving them crazy obviously had to be sane 🙁Posted 8 years ago
