    Ha. Yeah. The closet is in the back of the house in the mudroom, the bluetooth signal from the front of the house (living/dining areas) would have to go through like three walls before it gets to the closet. Wifi gets in there fine but bluetooth not so much.

    The answer is a properly sized box fan.

    How do I stream music from my phone in this situation? Is there like a bluetooth receiver that can connect to wifi that I could put out in the living area? Or can I somehow maybe get the ipad to be a slave to my phone and just mirror what I do on my phone? Or something? Help a brutha out.
    Sounds like you need a Chromecast Audio: http://amazon.com/Google-Chromecast-..._df_B0BFXMQYJF

    I'm pretty sure Google doesn't manufacture these anymore, so not sure how much runway you would have left. But there's got to be an equivalent product from someone else.

    Update: the internet says that the Wiim Mini is the best replacement for the Chromecast Audio

    We have a huge DVD collection we rarely watch but last night we realized the TV we've had for 2 years doesn't have AV inputs. (I guess they make AV to HDMI converters. Should work for the VHS player too. )
    Did not remember seeing this before, so have a few things you could do. 2 options for the AV- get a new DVD drive that has HDMI interface. They are out there, and I picked one up a bit back for probably much less than the AV to HDMI converters cost. You could also step up to a Blu-Ray player that can do DVD's and CD's also. Those are a bit more money (even used) but coming down in price like most technology. They also have Internet capability and more capabilities than just a plain DVD player.

    Sonos.

    The best part is having music without phone interruptions
    The worst part is paying for premium Spotify.

    This little thing will add wifi connectivity (airplay 2) to your current stereo https://www.amazon.com/Belkin-SoundF.../dp/B094LGLJB9. “Belkin soundform connect” is the name - in case that link dies.

    I almost went office space on my Bluetooth/TV speakers for their shitty connection strength (audioengine hd6), but that dongle basically makes them connect the same as a sonos setup.

    Did your mom collect gas station kitchen knives?

    The kind with flimsy serrated blades and cheesy plastic handles that sometimes came off after too many hot rinse cycles?

    Did she reproach any suggestion of getting gas at lower prices rather than obtaining another matching blade? A keening in her eye?

    I remember long legs of winter rolling through 2 lane tree bordered highways of northern Wisconsin where outposts were sparse, eschewing a stop when the gas gauge loomed left near an inferior mart, veering off into the night with the proper petroleum purveyor only a few dark leagues away. Or hot sticky rubber heat dream slaps down waffling concrete ribbons and off ramps to the plastic neon slushies and straws.

    But woe unto occupants of a car that had stopped, but the blade had gone missing, slipping between the textured vinyl seats to join single socks and innocent ignorance.
    What satisfaction, what muted glee shone on adding another knife to the set.

    Does leaving water out overnight actually allow a significant amount of chlorine and other dissolved gasses to evaporate?
    Does a simple Britta style filter do more/less?-

    Project farm did a good video on filters.

    As for the evaporation, my guess based on maintaining pools/hot tubs is it would take longer than overnight. Probably more like days.

    It would be nice to reclaim that word. Much like gays embraced faggot and queer and African Americans took over the word that cannot be said or typed.

    I did start Father’s Day by mother fucking their mother. Followed by a great afternoon of fishing with my boys.

    If one would want to complement a lady in a gym, is it better to say ‘nice yoga pants’ or ‘nice tights’? Asking for a friend of course!

    Lvovsky: :Excuse me m'am but those are really nice yoga pants" (wink wink)
    Female Gym Member: "What? Do you think the camel toe came withe these here tights?"

    Best advice is to keep your eyes on the prize and keep working out. They know how nice the yoga pants look.
