Absurd Extracts: What Is the "Best" Post?

The above works great on its own, but becomes wonderful in the context of your post in the parallel thread.

Kylo Ren is a tortured business analyst, driven mad by the Empire's (and, later, the First Order's) wasteful expenditures.
 

Kirin

Summon for hire
(he/him)
That or he's a tortured Bachelor of the Arts, thwarted at every turn by the Empire/FO's commitment to red-on-black design only.

PayPal once rejected a candidate who aced all the engineering tests because for fun, the guy said that he liked to play hoops. That single sentence lost him the job. No PayPal people would ever have used the world “hoops.” Probably no one even knew how to play “hoops.” Basketball would be bad enough. But “hoops?” That guy clearly wouldn’t have fit in. He’d have had to explain to the team why he was going to go play hoops on a Thursday night. And no one would have understood him.

I can't say I know everything about that story, but something about it makes me suspect there might have been some racism at work there.

Are you implying that Paypal, a company founded by Peter Thiel and Elon Musk, might have racist hiring practices?

Because you'd probably be right.

I'm torn about this. I discovered this site working on a personal passion project. It's a hip hop musical about Dracula set during his teenage years, sort of a hybrid between Hamilton and Twilight. I was going to title it Fang Rap High School, but then I saw that the URL for FangRapHS.com was already taken. Fortunately I'm also a huge baseball nerd, and the writing here is top notch. So I want the site to succeed, but I also want to URL. Hmm.
