  1. My gf says the same thing. Just taking a break for a bit, stuff going on.
  2. But not a food photographer. You need better lighting and some forum helpers so the pictures look as good as the food tastes!
  3. This is a challenging conundrum, that is for sure! Maybe chicks could walk to work, leaving the car in case I need more beer or somesuch.
  4. Everything is bad for you. I choose to be clean and will take that over the filth of not showering being bad for you. I wonder how often nEANDERTHALS scrubbed up in creeks or whatnot, and if not doing that contributed to their limited lifespans and eventual demise?
  5. About 25% of the population had jagged knife-scars on their faces when I visited. Dudes and chicks. I did like it there, though. Their sports fans are jerks, though.
  6. I was fine with chicks not driving, that eliminated half the traffic, so it was nice.
  7. WRONG! My first iphone had airplane mode, I don't know of a phone that doesn't or didn't have one. Certainly not any popular phone in the last decade or more. As far as mountains and molehills, you and others just keep at it. I will continue to retort against this wrongitry, though. Wilbur has given exactly zero reasons how my powered Iphone in airplane mode is gonna crash any plane, because it is impossible unless you throw it throw the window into the engine or death-star style at the captain while also hitting the co-captain. If you or Wilbur refuse to acknowledge my multiple posts referencing my phone in airplane mode, then that is on you. Are you gonna acknowledge that all my posts in this topic reference my phone in airplane mode when flying?
  8. I don't think so. Even when I had no hair, 10 minutes is what I needed to get clean, based on repeated trials. If you don't soap up completely twice, you aren't clean. I think some people out there think that 10 minutes isn't nearly enough.
  9. Prohibition, premarital sex, interracial relationships, laws that require you to go to church, laws that prohibit certain holes from being violated when you shower together, chicks not voting or driving and not having the ability to own property, not being able to vote if you didn't own land, slavery. Which of those were good ones? How long did it take to get them off the books? Were they good one day, and then when the law changed, were they now bad on a moral level? Lots more to choose from.
  10. My beliefs are based on showering in different situations. Your showers are too short, by far, and you don't get your surface area twice. Are you showering to take a short shower, or are you showering to get clean? Don't answer, we know you aren't doing it to get clean.
  11. This is still wrong, you are constantly filthy because you don't shower effectively.
  12. Just half? Almost all, if you are in a self-centric thought pattern that doesn't examine things from multiple angles. But you can tell me now how a powered on phone in airplane mode is gonna crash a plane, I am all ears. The fact that no one here is able to do just that should speak volumes. Stupid rules are not to be followed. ALL of the people that ever smoked pot previous to some states legalization did just that, and all crime that came from pot came from it being illegal. Bad law, universally broken. Just one example, I am sure we could go all day pointing out asinine laws that have gone by the wayside or are still in place. You can point to reasonable laws that are reasonable at face value, but those don't prove that many, MANY stupid laws are still in place.
  13. This is how we got the south in the country. People too dumb to ever try and think get people just as dumb or worse to run things, with predictable results. I think about every rule, whether it is old-school rules or new fangled rules. If they don't make any sense upon thought and follow-up, then we shouldn't follow them. Examples would be the old don't swim within the magical thirty minute window of eating or you will Shirley die, plus tons of nazis were "just following orders". There is often a point to the rules. There also often is just some tryant or other being an asshole and making rules to suit themselves. You are smart enough to know when to question some silliness or other being passed off as fact when you know it isn't. Look at bookface, for instance. look at any of the echo chambers there. They are always spouting off pure idiocy and all acting like there isn't a pandemic or some asshole that much of the country realized was totally worthless got tossed on his ass, but no way it could have gone that way "because I really REALLY wanted reality to match my fantasy".
  14. I would do mashed potato lambs, too, that might be fun.
  15. No, it is weird to shower with another person, except when you are first dating. Hygiene and personal care are exactly that, personal and solo, at least if you are showering to get clean. I have done it (showered) with the gf maybe four times in about 16 months, the last time in November on a weekend getaway. No videos exist that I know of.
  16. We will all be dead soon, possibly from your tablet and my phone on a flight. Somehow. Not sure how that magic happens, but apparently it is pretty hardcore voodoo. Zombie gods coming back from the dead will somehow revive us or give eternal everything, though, so we have that going for us.
  17. So how is that different from reading on the Kindle app on my phone? You have an electric device powered on while on an airplane, and in airplane mode. Same same. Also, how many planes have charging ports for the passengers? The airlines absolutely know that powered devices are on at all times, and are charging those devices because it has become an expected feature of flying, just like having 4 square inches to yourself and hefty and or screaming folks next to you.
  18. Who isn't in their own worlds on a plane? I have also never seen anyone reprimanded in any way for having their phones on, or checked to see if airplane mode is on. Nobody pays any attention after the first dozen flights they have been on, they aren't telling us anything new. If pressure drops suddenly, or there is turbulence, or you hear the captain's voice over your music, or you know you will be landing soon, then you pay attention. Also, if there are explosions or fictional religious characters are made real in some odd way, then you can pay attention, too.
  19. Would you not support my position, too? They aren't far off, you know. Yeah, and I stated that I put it in airplane mode, too. I go in with a charged phone, and if I do run low, at some point I might turn it off so I have at least 20% left when I get off the plane. So you seriously NEVER have your smartphone powered on at any time on a flight? I do find this very hard to believe that you never listen to something or read from a tablet or somesuch. Not because you are a liar or anything, but simply because the vast majority of people on flights do those things.
  20. Not sure about Pandora, but when you have the paid version of Spotify, it still works when you are on airplane mode for songs that you have saved. I have the paid version simply because I am in subways a bunch where there is no signal, and I want to tune out most things. Your cue to take an earphone out is if you are stopped long or everyone seems to be craning their necks like dogs do when they are confused about something, trying to hear an announcement from a half-working loudspeaker.
  21. It is silly to turn it off, why would you do such a thing? Also, I bet you don't go the whole flight staring straight ahead, nor does SD when she flies. It is about time that things are designed for what people are going to do, rather than what someone wishes people would do. Besides, describe my 'unsafe' behavior that would jeopardize you in some way, but do it realistically, not some fanciful once in a billion unicorn rectal live birth scenario so convoluted that it simply doesn't happen, if you can. The plain fact is that the majority of folks on whatever plane you are on are listening to music, watching a movie, listening to a podcast, or sleeping, possibly all at the same time. That is the reality.
  22. Wow, I have never heard of or seen this before, how did I miss it?
