Twitter Thread: People's Work Horror Stories

Some jobs are more unforgettably terrible than others. You can start up with a new gig that showed all appearances of being nothing short of your dream situation, only to learn that it's actually a waking nightmare, and that the boss is a completely maniacal lunatic. Or, maybe you'll end up dealing with a coworker who has impossibly obnoxious boundary issues. That's why it's key to keep a wary eye out for the red flags before you ever take on a new job. With all that being covered, let's take a look at what people had to say when it came time to share their most notable work horror stories on an emotional rollercoaster of a Twitter thread.

People Describe Nicest Celebrities They Met

Nothing can quite melt a fan's heart like meeting a celebrity that they absolutely idolize, and then not having the experience dampened by the obnoxious weight of a nasty ego. Celebrities are bestowed with quite a bit of power when it comes to making someone's day, or even giving them a cherished memory to last a whole lifetime.

RPG Creator Points Out The Geographical Absurdity of New Orleans

Co-Creator of Pathfinder @Jameslsutter has enough experience in fantasy cartography to know when a place is supposed to look believable or not. His diagnosis is that Louisiana has done a great job of convincing him that New Orleans exists when in fact it's laid out like a real not my job, "4:30 on a Friday" kind of map-making project. For fans of fantasy, here's a Tumblr thread on the theory surrounding Dwarves' super intelligent beards.

Twitter Thread: Shopping Mall Maps Work Great For Megadungeon Inspiration

Twitter user @PrismaticWastes decided to enlighten the world about how asymmetrical shopping mall maps actually translate beautifully for megadungeon maps. When you think about it, it makes sense. Malls are pretty much designed to make shoppers stay as long as humanly possible. Apparently college campus and zoo maps are also viable options.

There's no denying that sports fans love to stir up the pot on Twitter and oftentimes relentlessly trash talk various professional athletes that are just out there trying to not mess up, but prone to errors like the rest of humankind. So, when you're actually able to get some football fans to come in and attempt real life field goals that the professionals make look easy, you know you're going to have some pretty entertaining results.

Twitter Thread: How Rattata Could Theoretically Beat Goku

Yeah, this is basically stupid, but hey, it's important to never apologize for the dumb stuff you're into. Everyone has their stupid. For the ones who played the Pokémon games while watching old episodes of Dragon Ball Z, this means something, alright? We all know that Pokémon's probability system is madness, but assuming Goku isn't holding a quick claw or something that lets him sneak in a senzu bean, this looks like it holds up.


Hold on, does quick claw provide enough of a stat buff to override the priority of quick attack? Whatever.

But hold on, would Goku's instant transmission be fast enough to end the fight before it even began?

Either way, there's no argument that Rattata could beat Yamcha with no strategy.

Twitter User Demands Drawings of Bepantsed Vulture, Gets Them

There is actually a legitimate medical reason for giving the vulture its pants, but that is buried under the undeniable spectacle of a bird wearing pants. The concept was all-consuming enough for Chappell Ellison to demand artists renderings of the panted vulture, and what came of it was, well, more vultures in pants. Nice. It's reminiscent of the time people were asked to share their art and draw a duck.
