    If you don't have cd's hang old Ipods and I phones (the silver ones)

    Got pelted with huge juicy bugs on the highway today and none of the gas stations had squeegees to wash windshields. WTF?

They would ignore the don't walk light making it impossible to turn right or left. Once one person walked out and a car held up to not hit them everyone would walk out. The only way to get through was to slowly inch the car out around the corner. You'd have people walking around until front and behind you. Harder to do turning left across oncoming traffic. Finally gave up and would do 3 right turns to make a left. Never seen anything like it anywhere else. New York drivers wouldnt put up with that.

    And people crossing illegally never walk fast, do they.
    When I'm in Sacramento I walk a lot--if I have to cross at an uncontrolled intersection, even the ones that have flashing lights you can activate, I wait until the traffic clears. I don't trust drivers to stop just because I'm halfway across the street. Sacramento has to be the pedestrian death capital of the US. (Not according to statistics it turns out, but it feels right to me so I'll keep believing it.)

    I hate trying to figure out what plastics we can recycle. I admit to throwing a lot of non recylable stiff in the blue bag, but I do provide work for a lot of sorters as the landfill. Isn't most recycling turning out to be a big scam anyway?

    Yup. Though the needle thing isn't really comparable IMO due to public health aspect.

    A while back I was shopping for new shower head. Found one on home depot.com that sounded good. Higher flow rate and mixed in air to make volume feel even greater. Click to buy. "Can't ship to California". Which meant it must be really good. Didn't have to go to Eastern Europe like Kramer. Found the same one on Amazon which had no qualms about CA shipping. Thanks Bezos!

    I personally appreciate drinks coming without a straw. I drink things like a NORMAL adult... not through a straw like a goddam 3yo.

    Straws are nice when you're flat on your back in the hospital, otherwise I never use the straw when they give me one. Maybe people think they're more sanitary because they come wrapped while the cup is exposed to germs, but IMO and IME germs make you stronger (most of the time).

    The needle “exchange” is a scam. If they made you give one to get one I would be all for it. Instead they hand them out like candy, leaving needles everywhere.

    Damn junkies.

    PS, I’m okay with making someone ask for a straw or ask for water. No need for useless waste.

    But they banned plastic bags, and now my trash is full of paper bags and I have to pick up dogshit with my bare hand!

    Fkn Popping Ears...
    Me and Cinders have had head colds/coughs.
    Mostly over it now, but going up to/back from ski hill (4800 - 8200) makes for some incredibly painful *pops* in my ears.
    Seems worse coming downhill.
    Hope it goes away, and it's not some kinda sinus infection.
    I remember as a little kid I had problems with earache.

    April Fool's Day. I'm all for a good prank, but every damn person, company, store, etc. has to come up with some stupid gag to "celebrate" this remarkable day.

    -now: get off my lawn.
    It makes perfect sense...until you think about it.

    No thanks. I'll stick with porn. - Benny

    Somewhere I saw someone point out that they confiscate all of our super dangerous drinks, conditioners, and shampoos they throw them into the trash right behind them with all the other super dangerous stuff. Fucking geniuses.

    You know what's really gross? These commercials on TV for food delivery services. What's that one that uses the Queen song "I want it all"? (God, I hate fucking Queen. Another annoyance) Some dude orders enough takeout food to feed a battalion, just, I guess, because. This is cool? They didn't use a fat fuck in the ad, which is weird, because it would be entirely appropriate, and they're using more and more fat people in ads because, well, everyone is so fat. Then there's the loser who orders fucking Taco Bell delivery, and smiles about it. You slob. You can't get up out of your stinky Lazy Boy and drive a few blocks to the Taco Bell window? You know, fresh air and all that. It's disgusting.

    Just got back from a week in California - what is with the "this establishment causes cancer" - signs on absolutely everything?

    Blame California Prop 65. I'm sure it may have had good intentions at the beginning, but at this point it's downright comical with the signage they have to slap on EVERYTHING over there.
