    It's not even worth it for the 30lbs tanks. Brand new with fill for $110, or recert for $100, then still pay for a fill. We've got a 60lbs tank at the cabin that it might be worth doing the recert. The pig at Dad's place been recerted a couple times, I think they changed the stem once. Can't remember the price he paid.

    went to the weed store today, did "curbside pickup" where you order ahead and choose a specific timeframe for pickup. Get the text that my order is ready, get to the store in my appointed timeslot, and it appears that they put the curbside pickup people in their regular queue of people waiting in the store, there's no benefit at all to ordering ahead and choosing a time slot (or having them text you that your order is ready). I sat in my car for over 30 minutes just so they could run my debit card.

    Did you at least get a discount for online ordering?

    I mean I guess it's cheaper to fill them at the Uhaul but if they won't use my possibly dangerous ones I'll just get them changed out at the grocery store and continue risking my life. Not to mention the first Google result for recert didn't have a location in my state and I've have to ship it to a mag in Boise for the closest place.

    Because they look interesting on the Revit model computer screen at the office of the architect when they are shrunk down to have the entire building fit on the monitor. Looks like there is something going on.

    No one blows the model up big enough to see what it will be like to walk along the first floor. So no human scale detail, and too much building scale detail.

    Neighbor kid frequently gets rides from what I assume are various family members. They roll up and start laying on the horn. Annoys me more since working from home...

    You don’t have a cell phone? A window and eyeballs? Why is this necessary? Is it normal in other places? Because it doesn’t feel normal here.
    focus.

    You just defined my old man.

    He comes to pick me up for anything, no matter what time, and he’s blasting the horn before he hits the driveway.

    Drives me crazy.

    Used to have a neighbor that was a catastrophic lush, I'd see him hammered at all hours of the day stumbling around the yard. He was part of a crew of contractors and they'd come pick him up whenever there was work for him. Dudes would pull up in a truck, idle and lay on the horn until he came out. Sometimes it would take over 15 minutes and never once did I see anyone go to the house to knock. He'd eventually stumble out and hop in the truck to go to work. He must have been really good at his craft for anyone to bother putting up with his bullshit...

    Woah, he came out of the house ready to go to work after 15 minutes of honking? He was probably the foreman of that crew. That sort of prompt professionalism is rare in the construction industry. By now, he's probably making 6 figures to sit in a job trailer watching porn and sneaking vodka into his Monster.
    I remember a bottomless freedom...

    the new state farm featuring "jake" commericals.

    i will grant the the new jake, who is black; looks better and has a better presence on the commercials than the previous white jake and i do not even have an issue also calling him jake and using him as jake in the new state farm commercials, but putting him in the old jake commercial and editing white jake out ? no one really swore off state farm because there was not a black guy in that commercial.

    So.
    Does black State Farm Jake wear khakis?

    If so isn’t that white culture appropriation?

    Commercial content these days is another sign of inequality in our society. A lot of advertisers could care less about the bottom 80% of Americans, because they have no money. That's why you see so many interracial couples and gay couples in ads these days. They're marketing to the upper class in the cities and nice burbs who have some disposable income to waste on their product.

    As Willy Sutton said . . .

    Maybe it's a sign of the shows I watch but it seems like all the ads are for overpriced drugs with really weird names

    Right? I only see them now when I seek them out via the Cannes list, and maybe the superbowl.

    That's a lot of places. I'm probably in the minority here, but I'll add deep frying the potatoes instead of roasting them.
