Dating: Eye of beholder, yatta yatta

Me:
How was your date with that guy from online?
Coworker:
Agh. He was disgusting.
M:
Really?
C:
Oh my god, it was gross. He was so old.
M:
Didn't you know his age before meeting him?
C:
Yes, but he did NOT look this old in the picture.
M:
How old is he?
C:
Oh my god, he's 46.
M:
...
C:
Oh my god, it was disgusting.
M:
Isn't that only five years older than you?
C:
Yes, but he was so plain. Had this plain face, plain clothes, little belly, ugh, it was gross.
M:
How, exactly, is that gross?
C:
Oh my god, it was disgusting.
M:
Uh-huh.
C:
I mean, I don't expect to meet a hot 20-something, but he was so plain, so gross.
M:
...I don't even know what to say.
C:
So disgusting.

Sharks are mammals, right?

Employee 1:
Did you know a dolphin is pregnant at Shedd? I'd love to see a baby dolphin born.
Employee 2:
Gross.
Employee 1:
What? Dolphins are cute, so I can't imagine how adorable their babies must be. Little heads popping up to get air.
Employee 2:
Why do they need air? Don't they breathe water?
Employee 1:
No, dolphins are mammals.
Employee 2:
That means they breath air? I thought they had gills.
Employee 1:
No, they have lungs. The breathe through their blowhole.
Employee 2:
No way. Does that mean sharks are mammals too?
Employee 1:
No, sharks have gills; so they are fish.
Employee 2:
Huh. Who knew?

You can beta test popsicles now? [via iChat]

Nik:
Let me charge my Android phone and verify [our app is out of beta]. Give it a few minutes to come out of its totally dead state.
me:
Yeah no mention of "beta" in the market anymore.
Nik:
Ya, but I wanted to verify that in the application, too.
Nik:
I left to fetch the phone and somehow came back with a popsicle. Let me try again.
me:
Is the popsicle in beta?
Nik:
In that it is unfinished, yes. It'll be out of beta in a few bites.
