RationalWiki's 2018 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff — we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone seeing this today donates $5, we will meet our goal for 2018.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Hahaha. Yeah, I do. I'm currently a carousel operator (have been for 2 years now?), a T-mobile cellphone Salesgirl, and by next month, I'll be doing an internship at a hospital as a scribe (Still preparing for). And...a Jersey? XD Why a jersey?

cool = chilly = have to wear a jersey (but luckily not a Guernsey)...

..........OHHHHHHH! Ahahahaha. I had to actually think about the wording for a minute and was confused. In short, I had a FOB-Translator glitch moment. FAIL. Anyways, I got it. Hahaha. I don't know how operating a carousel is cool, but sure...As long as I get to be 'cool'? I guess. Yay. :D

Put it this way, now I can drop "Well, I know a carousel operator" into polite conversation and mean it. :) It also shows you're good with kids, which i always a good thing. If it was me, I'd be tinkering with the motor and splatting little kids all around the mall, as I put centrifugal force to the test... *evil grin*

PsyGremlinПоговорите!10:07, 22 January 2012

That'd be awesome in a conversation. "Oh~ my friend is -insert boring job here-" OH YEAH!? WELL I HAVE FRIEND THAT'S A CAROUSEL OPERATOR! BAM! TAKE THAT! -silly dance- Hahahaha. Meh, kids...I suppose I'm alright with them. I can only handle so much at a time. Last semester I was an assistant teacher at a Montessori school for a semester to see if I ever wanted to be a teacher. No. Being a Korean teacher for the little kids on Saturday mornings was tough enough. Although, I have met a few kids that are pretty great. They're so easy to manipulate when they're little. It's scary.

Hahaha. I've tinkered with the motor before, but it's not much difference really. It doesn't go too fast, even on the highest level. Though, I have experimented on the emergency stop button to see if it would stop the carousel abruptly and fling kids off. To my disappointment...it doesn't.

"I have experimented on the emergency stop button to see if it would stop the carousel abruptly and fling kids off."

You, my dear, are made of awesome!

PsyGremlinПоговорите!10:32, 22 January 2012

XDDDDD Or just plain boredom at work. HAHAHA~ But sure. Being made of 'awesome' has an interesting ring to it. But tell that to some of the parents that bring their kids. Tsk Tsk. The carousel is a relatively easy job in itself. The part that suck the most are the parents...JEEEESUS ON A CRACKER, some parents (mostly mothers) are total bitches. Ugh. There have been many times where I'm like: "Just smile and Nod, Kristi...just...smile..and nod."

Dumpling (talk)10:50, 22 January 2012

Laaaaaaame. I thought you ran this kind of carousel.

Nebuchadnezzar (talk)19:32, 22 January 2012

I do.

Dumpling (talk)19:35, 22 January 2012

Doesn't count if it's not in Central Park.

Nebuchadnezzar (talk)19:37, 22 January 2012

SHHHH. A carousel is just as entertaining as an escalator for most kids. It doesn't matter if it's in Central park or in the middle of boring Baton Rouge.

Dumpling (talk)19:41, 22 January 2012

Dude, sweet.

Well, that video certainly accomplished something.

Uke Blue21:31, 22 January 2012

Oh man, I went to a Montessori school and look how I turned out.

Nebuchadnezzar (talk)19:35, 22 January 2012

Hahaha. I don't see what bad? You're pretty good, I think.

Dumpling (talk)19:39, 22 January 2012

what is a scribe?

Pink mowse.pngGodotGrow a vagina19:50, 22 January 2012

Scribe. Basically someone that gets to follow around doctors and watch patients. Kinda like a nurse, except I have to write down everything that's going on, for legal purposes. Like how a doctor is treating a patient, the patients' conditions, so on and so forth. That should be interesting.
