squrlz4ever may be able to correct me if I'm wrong here, but, I hear a lot of people are moving to the Scranton PA and Allentown PA areas to live, and then working in Philly and even NYC. The commute and properties and taxes are simply cheaper than properties and taxes alone in the city areas.

daegog The Pats, or the refs?

I'm thinking Minnesota might be able to pull it off. But it's going to be an uphill battle for sure.

I was looking for an All PA SuperBowl.

Don't care who wins now, as long as it isn't the Pats

layla_wilson Unless you click that "Just one more turn" button.

But, of course, should a civilization colonize mars, they will win as well (going by Civ VI Science victory)

woodyville06 Oh yeah, totally agree.

I had a professor once tell us the dangers of working on servers. How one has to be very careful as to not delete the wrong things.
Experience is the best teacher, yeah? Rumor had it that he deleted a whole server and was unable to recover any data; hence why he was now our professor and not working on servers in Korea (he was Korean)

HI-haole Glad to hear you're alright.

Out of curiosity, do you have an iPhone or Android? The post here specifically says iPhone users got the message. I'm just curious if they were only posting based on known information, ie "I have and iPhone, and my family all have iPhones, and we all got the alert".

Also, I hope it didn't cause too much trouble for people's day to day lives.

Gerry1of1 No, they should have shot at the barrel of the gun so that the cops' bullet would go straight in, lodging itself in the barrel, and causing CJ's gun to malfunction.

scheckydamon Did I knock up the male hummingbird? No.

However, I did find a baby hummingbird on that same patio. Tried to feed it, but had to go to work. Came back, and it had died. It was just a little round fluffball that had been doomed on my patio.

Kind of reminds me of how I got a hummingbird to land on my finger.

We always put up a feeder for the summertime. One day, I was sitting on the patio, I think I was playing on a handheld, and the hummingbird would come and visit. He would, at first, take a sip and then fly away. But the longer I sat there, the longer each of his visits would be. Eventually, I started inching my way closer to the feeder, until I was right underneath it. Next, I would stand up right next to the feeder. He kept coming by. It got to the point where I would stick my finger right next to the feeder, and he would land on it to feed. Of course, at first, he was very apprehensive, but the longer I just stood there, the longer he would feed.

I used to do things like this as well.
Like if you mouth out words while brushing your teeth, you'll be able to "hear" the words you're saying without vocalizing them; much like how an electrolarynx works.

Seriously, it really did sound like I should have been able to understand what they were singing.

skeeter01 Thanks to your idea, I took my last 3 longest comments (all of which were in the H&M post), and found that mine was actually at an 8.7. What I'm more proud of is that only 10% of the sentences I wrote were passive. Moreover, this is great, because anyone can actually check anyone else's comments with the checker; no one can be dishonest.

markust123 Okay, then, I see. We ultimately want the same thing; we just think the path to it is different.


Ah, but my inference of your comment was that she should blindly follow you! As in, she shouldn't blindly follow you.
DuckBoy87 wrote:
markust123 and squrlz4ever Just out of curiosity, do you two find my position (my first comment to markust) unreasonable?

To reiterate, I'm saying the advert is fine because a monkey is such a common animal, that trying to almost exclusively associate monkeys with the racist historical context is futile, and that having more presence will actually help disassociate it for future generations, much like that Australian KFC ad that I linked isn't racist for its reasons.


To markust: "The gay and trans community is supposed to have each others backs."
That doesn't mean blindly following each other without having one's own opinion. (I can't believe I defending layla.. we agree on pretty much nothing.)

normalfreak2 Well, some of that has to do with the Teacher's Unions. Once they are tenured, and once they decided to stop caring, there's slim chance of a teacher being removed.
