I haven't seen CARS, but I gather there are farm harvesters. Who are they farming for in their no-meatbags world?
Corn for ethanol for fuel? - Jennifer Dittrich
Cars takes place in the same universe as The Matrix. There are still stashed meatbags they have to feed. - Victor Ganata

I get bitchy when I think about how many ways the browsers sell out my privacy. - Brian Johns
Here's the thing, in order to avoid it you have to basically get off the internet or be some mad dev installing extensions, experimental browsers, etc etc to avoid it. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android

If my calculations are correct, and they always are, based on babies growth rate he should be a tad under 16 feet tall by the time he's 8 years old.
LOL. How big is J now? I kinda feel the same about M. She's a month old and already 3.75" longer than she was at birth! - Tamara J. B.
At 4 weeks he was 24" I think now he's gained another inch or so. We need larger and larger shoe boxes to let him sleep in. - Steve C

I just posted this guy in the FB auction room. My notifications blew up with likes ... 10 in 5 seconds! I guess it would be rude to comment "Bids peope! Not likes" schnort!

And he's gone ... under two minutes. Race horse! - Shannon - GlassMistress
Huh ... not only did he go in under 2 minutes, but he went to someone that wants SIX MORE ... woot! - Shannon - GlassMistress
yeah, I'm stoked. I'm trying to sell enough beads to pay for a visit to my mom's. That order will be a big help :-) (but i sure wish I could spend it on a cruise instead - dont tell my mom, hah) - Shannon - GlassMistress
Well, once your duty is done, anything else is for a cruise :) - WoH: Professor MOTHRA

Posit: There is one switch in everyone's house that has an undetermined purpose.
There was one in the living room, but we figured it out. It controls the outlet on the opposite wall, presumably because there is no overhead lighting. - NOT THE CRICKET
Spirit line? - Meg VMeg from Android
There has been one such switch in every dwelling in which I've resided, bar the last one, where the purpose of the switch was undetermined until I traced it back to a couple of unterminated wires near the hot water tank and determined that it had no purpose, though had probably once been intended to control an immersion heater. - Slippy: Potato Croquette
I just finally figured out the mystery switch I have - it's for the motion activated lights on the side of my house. They don't turn on in the day, and only when there's motion, so that took a bit. - Jennifer Dittrich
My house is old and small, so I know what all the switches do. But the light switch for the back porch is where the kitchen's light switch should be, so other people are always confused. The kitchen's light switch is way across the room, next to a door we don't use. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
"In my house there's this light switch that doesn't do anything. Every so often I would flick it on and off just to check. Yesterday, I got a call from a woman in Germany. She said, "Cut it out."" --Steven Wright. - Betsy

Grocery Store Economics: Why Are Rotisserie Chickens So Cheap? http://www.kcet.org/living...
This just makes good sense. - Brian Johns
Yeah, but it also means it's largely irrational to buy an uncooked whole chicken. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
True. So who buys them? - Yvonne from FFHound!
Well, if you want to make chicken adobo or tinola, you can't really just use an already cooked rotisserie chicken…. - Victor Ganata
what Victor said. buying an uncooked whole chicken is ENTIRELY rational if you have a totally unrelated recipe in mind. - Big Joe Silence
Expending labor to produce food when cheaper food is available?? Highly irrational. [insert Randian diatribe here] - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Even if you don't want to make something different, some people just aren't down with eating old rejected chicken :D - Victor Ganata
Or ANY chicken. =) - Yvonne from FFHound!
INDEED! - Big Joe Silence
But not eating rotisserie chicken is irrational! I HAVE DECLARED IT. From now on, all meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner, second breakfast, elevenses, elvesies, third breakfast, midnight snack) must be rotisserie chicken. AT PRICES THIS LOW, IT'S AN OFFER YOU CANNOT RATIONALLY REFUSE. Vegans included. - Stephen Mack
Our oven roasted chicken is 10x better than any store heated variety. So that's one reason not to. - Todd Hoff
But is something 10x better tasting worth really spending twice as much? We must also consider the opportunity cost. When baseline nutritious food is sold as a loss leader, we each have a moral imperative to feed ourselves in the most fiscally advantageous way possible. Comrades. - Stephen Mack
Now if we're talking calories per dollar and/or gram of protein per dollar, I think Burger King still wins over rotisserie chicken. ;) #NotMedicalAdvice - Victor Ganata

I am so the Mean Mommy today. I'm fed up with: the 3-yo demanding food in between meals and not eating his meals; both kids directly disobeying my requests; the 6-yo refusing to say Thank You to friends for parties he is invited to (why does he act so entitled and ungrateful???). Their behavior is incredibly disappointing and makes me FURIOUS!
A long ago lesson was when I was sent to my room sans dinner. I thought I was going to die from hunger that night. Glad my parents stuck to their guns, never again did I take the threat of no dinner as a ruse. - Janet
I can only imagine how frustrating their behavior is, but am very grateful to you for teaching them to have manners. *hugs* - vicster: full-bodied
You too? OMG. How frustrating is it? I'm sooooooo tired of repeating myself all day long, and prompting for manners, and meal time battles, and and and... - Melly
The one that's getting me now is: Mom? What? Mom? What?? Mom? WHAT??? (If you're not going to listen for my reply, stop effing asking!!!!) - Yvonne from FFHound!

Yay! - Jenny H. from Android
Are you supposed to be running yet or are you going rogue? - Steve C
Thanks, Jenny! I'm very glad to be able to (slowly) get back into running. It ended up being 5 weeks of PT for the tendinitis of the posterior tibialis, but my physical therapist put me on a schedule where I can start and end with a quarter-mile jog, and then have a run in between -- first a quarter mile run, then half mile, then mile, going only every other day, repeating each distance once (increasing by a half-mile every other run). So it works out that I'll be able to run a total of 17 miles in July. - Stephen Mack
SteVe, nossir, no rogue for me. After I first had shin pain in April, I took brief periods off running and then resumed, only to have the shins hurt more than before. So this third break I'm taking the PT seriously and following the schedule they laid out for me. - Stephen Mack

Got that phone call at home tonight where someone says they are from a cybersecurity monitoring service and that they've noticed from their servers that there is a virus on my computer. They then want you to go to a website and download a program to fix the problem. I played dumb as long as I could before the caller wised up and hung up on me.

There should be reversible jerseys and caps with 2 team logos for playoff series, so bandwagon fans could flip em if necessary after a game.
Actually, I'm surprised someone hasn't tried to Kickstart this. - joey
My husband's solution was to have a t-shirt, jersey, or hat for every team, that way, no matter what sport it is, no matter what teams play, you can wear something from the winner. (he didn't get the nicknames of Hat Man and Jersey Guy for nothing) He has a habit of wearing something from both teams when it's the final game, such as the Superbowl. He always gets the side-eye from someone for that. - April Russo
