The Studio Ghibli museum banned photography altogether for a very good reason: parents taking photos all the time mean kids aren't free to enjoy themselves

I must be getting old because every museum I go to these days seems to be utterly ruined by parents trying to get Instagram-worthy photos of their kids.

Uncle Ben sent me postcard offering free rice.

This is disturbing on many levels

do ya ever think about good the Carmen Sandiego character design is? that a software company in the mid 80's decided to center their game on an enigmatic hispanic woman with a bold and non-sexualized design?

The word on the street is that the part in question tends to go anyway around the mileage my car is at, so I can't be too mad.

Still though, have to consider the cost/benefit of trading her in.

About to do my penance for having fun in the snow the other week. Front drive shaft U-joint is shot but thanks to 'non-repairable' components, the entire shaft has to be replaced.

"It is a mistake to suppose that the public wants the environment protected or their lives saved and that they will be grateful to any idealist who will fight for such ends.

What the public wants is their own individual comfort."

One aspect of clothing and that is quite amazing is that men's outfits glorify the body while women's outfits glorify the face.

There is a difference and its remarkably easy to spot on people once you're aware of it.

An internet high five to you for making it through another week :blobwave:

Men need to embrace hand/shoulder bags... ever since I became a diabetic I started carrying around a bag to keep stuff in, and it made me realize how much men are missing out on in terms of portable storage... Also mens wallets are lame, they're designed to be small so they can fit in a pocket, but they barely fit anything in them compared to women's wallets...


Today is Philadelphia International Records 40th Anniversary volume 2 and it kicks off with '992 Arguments' by the always-superb O'Jays

It's the night of confused men here at the grocery store.

The flower lady is busy while her prey stand around nervously.

It's mildly disconcerting that the chart at this government office indicates that a whopping 0.0% of their IT department took any training for an entire month.
