The whole of Ireland voting on whether the world becomes U2-independent is kind of epic.
Anne Rand of Green Gables is a delightful tale in which we learn that you can hock current wine as raspberry cordial to minors because laissez faire and caveat emptor m*therfuckers!
Who is Gilbert Blythe? - Mark Trapp
Have you ever been dumped non- face-to-face?
Oh, sure. And I've dumped others that way, too. These are modern times. - Meg VMeg
Yes. - Janet from FFHound!
I've been non-dumped a lot. Basically, "I'm going to ignore you until it's obvious I don't want to see you anymore". So that's always fun and not at all degrading... - Lola Bean (Penguin) from iPhone
Oh yeah. Several times. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
May 2008. Bus stop, on the phone. Worst day ever. - Steven Perez from Android
Yes. Last year as a matter of fact. At least it was an email and not a text message. - Friar Will
Yeah, IM. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Yep, via email. - Jed from iPhone
Does being dumped while having sex doggy-style count? - Hookuh Tinypants
Judges?......... We have a Yes. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Yes. Dumped over the phone for another woman (apparently *after* he started an affair) right during my finals week. - Spidra Webster
Once, when I was 15. And I didn't even know that we had broken up over the phone till he hung up on me, ran to my house right after, and beat up the paper boy. He thought I was cheating on him with that dude, who was only there on our porch at that moment because he was collecting money from our downstairs neighbor. (This is what happens when someone can't recognize or handle sarcasm.) - April Russo
I broke up with my boyfriend via letter when he was in the county jail. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
What's your favorite calculator model used in school or thereafter?
Casio fx-7000g, still use it. - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
HP-67 all the way, though I'll admit my HP-45 probably got me through my EE degree. - David Lounsbury
I never really learned to use calculators for advanced functions until last year. My HS calculator (which I still have and which still works on its ORIGINAL battery) is a TI-35 Plus. I really like the size of it. But it's a little sticky around the buttons so when I was in Chem 22 I bought a TI-36X. Its weight and size is nice but it has no log button. It turns out you do log by... more... - Spidra Webster
I don't remember what brand/model it was, but it was a printing calculator that I found in one of the abandoned offices at the airport, back when I worked there, that I swiped for use in my office (I didn't feel like bringing mine from home). I should have taken it with me when I left that job. The keys had such a good feel to them. - April Russo
I really loved my TI-85 when I was in school (and after, until I left it in a cart at Walmart accidentally, and lost it forever). Not sure I really remember any particular models of calculator I've used since; I mostly just use whatever's built into my computer or phone. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
When I was in school there weren't any. Good thing I was an English major. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
TI-84 Plus Silver Edition. <3 - Jenny H. from Android
HP-48 S, although I never used it to its full potential. - Brian Johns
Still have my HP-32S, vintage 1988 model, as my go-to calculator. I keep non-RPN calculators on hand for the other librarians. - Elizabeth Brown
I liked using my graphing calculator in high school and college. I forget if it was a TI-80 or TI-81. Probably the latter. - John (bird whisperer)
HP-48 S, never needed its full potential. - Angelo
I really liked the TI-68 I had in high-school, and hated the switch to the graphing calculators (I did a lot better with the math itself when forced to graph by hand.) - Jennifer Dittrich
I had and still have a casio fx-4500 - Amit Patel
TI-81. The only calculator I ever used in high school and college. - Bren from iPhone
Hp 11c reverse polish. - Joe from iPod
HP-48GX. - Julian
In school? I had a really good K&E slide rule. Never did learn all of its functions, but got really good at mentally calculating magnitudes. - Walt Crawford
*wonders what a reverse Polish calculator is and if it's anything like reverse cowgirl* - Spidra Webster
I'm with the oldsters in this group. Personal calculators had just become available when I took statistics the summer after graduating college, but they were so very expensive then. A few people in the class had them, but I still used a slide rule. - Anne Bouey
TI nspire CX CAS - Glen Campbell
Confession: I have a calculator collection. I own several dozen of'em. - Glen Campbell
What's the most reliable automobile you've ever owned?
Saturn SL1 - Meg VMeg
A BMW me ex had was very reliable. Never had an issue at all. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
Hyundai Elantra (2003) - Jennifer Dittrich
All three of my recent cars have been very reliable: Ford Focus, Scion TC, and now a Toyota Yaris. Nary a problem with any of them. - Friar Will
Dodge colt that was essentially a Mitsubishi. - Joe from iPod
This 20 year old Voyager I'm driving now. But my favoritest car was my always-needing-maintenance 93 Cutlass SL. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Our Honda Civics. All of them, except for the transmission problem on the '95. (Now down to just one, our new 2005.) - Walt Crawford
Joe reminded me of the Colt that I had as well. Yes, it too was very reliable. - Friar Will
Hondas, 12 of them in the immediate family over the years. - Anne Bouey
My Volvo XC99 - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
1965 Ford Mustang and 1950 GMC panel truck. - Greg GuitarBuster
Citroen AX Lx - obe
2007 Volkswagen Beetle. - Steven Perez from Android
!984 Oldsmobile Cutlas Ciara, that we named Betsy. But the most reliable I ever paid for was a friend's used Toyota cargo van that had over a million miles on it before he retired from the courier biz and sold it to another courier driver. - April Russo
I'm still driving my 1992 Honda Civic. - Marie from iPhone
Toss up between my '97 Civic EX and my '80 Ford Fairmont Sedan. That thing was a friggin' BEAST. My current Civic is too new to really sing the praises of but it's not let me down yet, so. - Hookuh Tinypants
Any of my Chevy Pickups - WarLord
My old Hyundai Excel was pretty reliable. In 18 years I had to replace the clutch twice and that was the worst of it. My Subaru Baja has been pretty reliable over the 10 years I've had it. - vicster: full-bodied
Subaru Forrester - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Toyota Tundra - 14 years now. Two trips total to the mechanic. - Steve C Team Marina
Honda Civic. Love it - Prometa
Honda Accord. My son inherited it and it's still cruising after 14 years and 300K+ miles. - Jenny H. from Android
If you would like to uninstall the U2 feature from your iTunes, uncheck Edge's Delay Pedal in your System Preferences pane. Wait 7 minutes for all the echoes to stop. You're all good!
"I believe in Crystal Light, therefore I am." —@descartes1980s
Descartes? George Berkeley is the choice of a new generation. - Mark Trapp
Beer with a coffee chaser at this point? Yep.
My favorite part of between Pete and Barry in Bromancing the Stone is when he said, "You're the best time I've ever had," to which he replied, "I've never been anybody's best time."
<Pete> "Fuck you all" </Pete> - MoTO: Team Marina from Android
*smokes imaginary ciggy* - Big Joe Silence
Y'all ain't right - Pete : Team Marina from FFHound(roid)!
^ And this coming from the Mighty Morphine Power Ranger. Ha! - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
I feel like I've wandered into Bizzaroworld Friendfeed. - Slippy
Cinemax FF - MoTO: Team Marina from Android
If you have an iPhone 5s and can help me by installing my (free) app to see if it works OR if it closes/crashes immediately, it would help me out enormously right now. Anyone?
Eh, it crashed for me but I'm running the latest iOS8 beta so may not be the best test case. - rönin
More information is better than less, thanks, rönin. - Micah
When it launched I saw only the W and the display bar next to it, it then kinda shrank down to the iPhone 4 display size, and then resized back up to regular iPhone 5 size but the W + display bar was duplicated. And then it crashed. - rönin
Crashing for me, Micah. But it's worked for me previously on my 5S. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Ah, okay, rönin, I appreciate the extra details—thanks. And thanks, Stephen, from what you're saying the os update probably changed the game. - Micah
Btw, I can't replicate any crashes in the simulator, and I only have iPads on had for testing, no phones. But 2 out of 2 help requests I've gotten regarding crashing were on iPhone 5s. Hmm. Not going to be easy to sort out. - Micah
5S with iOS7 crashes. - Anne Bouey
It worked for me and I was able to control my TV and lights with it. One bug might be that an Uber arrived and a drone dropped a puppy, which I did not order. - Cristo
Puppy drop easter egg really has become the best value-add of them all. - Micah
Thanks for the confirmation, Anne. - Micah
Is it a problem on iPhone 5? Don't have a 5S, but my 5 has dev access and I could send you detailed crash logs. - Mark Trapp
Sure, that would be awesome, Mark. Thank you. - Micah
Crashes iOS 7.1.2 on a 5S - Eric Logan from FFHound!
Hm, unfortunately, it works on iPhone 5. :P - Mark Trapp
Thanks, Eric. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Micah, sorry you have to deal with this. I agree it was probably the 7.1.2 update that broke it. Is there anything I can do to help? - Stephen Mack
Stephen, I think you could retrieve and send me your crash report for my app. I think it works as described here: -- Thank you! - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
OH [in Starbucks line]: "I don't drink tea or coffee."
They're there for the scones. - Stephen Mack
They feel guilty enough for using the bathroom to purchase something. - Lisa L. Seifert from iPhone
They're there to try the new soda line. - Spidra Webster
They're there to stick with their friends (a college embedded Starbucks). - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
The only bad ideas I listen to are my own. That's how I know I'm not in a dream state. That's my totem.
The Splurge is a movie about everyone going shopping for killer deals on this one day. Marketing is heavily trying to push the catchphrase #BlackFriday into the public lexicon.
Given the annual stampedes and sometimes fatal injuries, I feel like the POTUS should always proclaim "May the odds be ever in your favor" at the start of Black Friday. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
"We keep rolling back bodybag prices every day." - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
On the verge of The Purge, we had the urge to splurge so we merge into the surge against the scourge until we submerge. Now sing a dirge. - Stephen Mack
It's $turtles all the way down. - Mark Trapp
Land of the Lost S1E1 - watching with the boys first time.
Will [diagnosing Cha Ka's leg]: "It may not be broken, just a fracture." - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
I want to show my kids that. I think my son would enjoy it. - Anika
Yeah, I'm getting a steady stream of 'what the?' reactions. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Marshall: "No, Holly, people don't own other people." - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Wait wait wait, the real one? - Meg VMeg
Yes. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Huh. - Meg VMeg
I assume H. R. Pufnstuf is next? - Meg VMeg
Wavelength. Same. We're on it. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Kathy Coleman's (Holly) son Alphonzo Robert Bell III (born 1983) is a rap artist who goes by the stage name "40 Keys".
Marshall: "No, Holly, people don't own other people."
Can one buy Cha Ka's Theme on iTunes?
Truth beggars can't be choosers, as they say.
Define operate. Define heavy equipment. Define don't.
*Unzips pants* - Johnny from iPhone
Which reminds me to ask: Zippers zip the other way down under, right? Because hemisphere. LOL Right!! - Micah
*spans trousers* - Big Joe Silence
I just said I AM GROOT three times and Beetlejuice showed up in the form of a douglas fir.
I don't know if I'd trust a self-driving car named Desire.
Maybe "Christine" would be better? - FLEMING from Android
I'm going to increasingly and unceasingly split infinitives until they are all conquered.
I just ask for separate infinitives. - Mark Trapp
Ok. I laughed. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
I know I'm dating myself, but man is it easier to split the bill.
Don't most places do separate checks these days? - Mark Trapp
What sorcery is this!? - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
You tell your server you want separate checks and they give a check for each party member. A lot of times I've found they'll just offer it if it looks like you're not family. boom.gif.jpg.png - Mark Trapp
And I thought his point is that if you're eating alone, you never have to split the check. - Jennifer Dittrich
I would love to alternate the checks but I dine with excessive drinkers and I am a non drinker so no thank you, your $75.00 bar tab is yours. Separate checks always for that group. - Janet from FFHound!
The OP is not autobiographical; sole purpose was to pun badly. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Although I guess there's an argument that all writing is autobiographical at some metaphysical level. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Oh. :( - Mark Trapp
Yet, :) - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Oh, I get it. I get jokes. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
I don't know about easy, seems like you worked pretty hard for that solution, don't short change yourself. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Good show, now you're getting it. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Bachman–Turner Overdub is the best live simulcast cover band you've never heard of.
This is also not literal. READ MY EULA! - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
I understand how wikipedia exists. I understand how exists. I don't understand how IMDB exists, currently.
What I mean is what are the mechanics an culture, how does it stay edited? - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
It's edited by the film/TV industry: the pro version is used by agents and casting directors and such. It's also wholly owned by Amazon, so it doesn't exactly need to turn a profit. - Mark Trapp
What documentation is used? They just call up Ron Howard and say "Hey, so who's playing Scott in this Charles in Charge reboot?" - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
I'll bet the movie houses and distributors pay to get their films advertised at the top and sides. - Joe
Yeah, the ads must be a big deal at this point. I vaguely knew there was a pro subscription model with industry people awash. But I still can't picture how updates on classic and obscure stuff get hashed out. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Maybe through the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences? Someone get Jandy over here...she might know. - Corinne L
They have a team of fact checkers to make sure the volunteered data is accurate: phone calls/emails to studios is probably part of it, as well as having contacts throughout the industry. Older stuff can be checked via studio archives and such. Seems like it'd be similar to a film archivist job, just without the preservation of the media themselves. - Mark Trapp
No one's called me for my picture and bio lol. I'm not quite vain enough to buy a pro subscription and remedy it. Is this a humblebrag? Very well, then... I humblebrag. - Brent Schaus
Wait, are you the Brent Schaus from Samurai Warriors 2? - Corinne L
*bribes an unpaid intern in a dank east Hollywood studio apartment to login and add ridiculous but believable facts under Brent Schaus > Trivia* - Micah
That'd be hilarious. I'd help! - Brent Schaus
There's a free 14 day trial for pro. Just enough time to build up Brent's trivia and maybe a few good quotes. - Corinne L
I JUST HAD A PARADIGM SHIFT. .... ah. nope. that's not what it was. Just a bloated stomach.
