Don’t let the bastards get you down thoreau. You may have been suspended, but you almost certainly shamed the President and Fox News into changing their behavior or closing up shop entirely.
With those problems now solved, the tentative plan is that they will learn to code (as will I).

It’s not like they’re actual bagels anyway. It’s just doughnut shaped bread, who cares how it’s sliced.

Yeah, they’re Panera bagels.

Also, this explains all.

That photo of sliced bagels actually killed my appetite. What the fuck would you even do with them?

That actually seems like an ideal way to eat bagels, especially in an office setting. The downside is that you're in St Louis.

Considering bagels are ornamental and not meant for eating, the direction of the slice doesn't seem that important.

Yeah if you're hanging out with rubbery rings with no real crust of course slicing it like Melba toast makes sense. Nothing is true and everything is permitted.

Team dhex. I get moderately annoyed if I don't get the warm out of the oven bagels and ask for lightly toasted. By the way, if you want to see true crimes against humanity, have a bagel in London.

Shit, probably half my weight gain freshman year was because I could walk into the Trinity cafeterias and, most of the day,, they had carts constantly coming out with a dozen or so trays of hot, freshly-baked bagels. I often just ate one or two of those things dry.

This is the guy who spent the better part of ten years trying to make the Hacker New forum "run itself" by trying various sorts of algorithmic voodoo and subliminal influence instead of moderation. It mostly amounted to nobody knowing what the rules exactly were and, toward the end, everyone being paranoid about whether the pages were loading slowly for them because of some inefficiency in the site or because some bit of code had decided they were a problem commenter.

Eventually, he gave up and had someone else run the site.
