Leaving the office yesterday, i got in at the 6th floor. First it stopped at the 5th and a man got on. At the 4th floor, another man and woman entered. From there we went straight down the other 4 floors unabated.

Mr. 4th floor recognized Mr. 5th floor and they chatted. Moments before the gates to freedom something like this transpired:

I have issues using website with crude names. FF/abe takes me the rest of the way.

Netflix plays at 1x speed. For some things that's ok, but for anime especially, i don't think i could survive it. I usually watch subbed, between1.3x and 1.77x. I also want to watch interesting lectures (online universities) whilst riding on my bike, but they switch the format to multiple videos of a few minutes each, which doesn't work so well for these ends.

I don't really watch recent tv shows, unless they really catch my eye. Recently, saw once upon a time and arrow, both which had great first seasons (well, ouat was great, arrow was just good enough to watch) but bad second seasons. Flash was unwatchable even in the first season. At least bad movies are fun to watch to some extent (special effects, short story) and that's where netflix ought to come in.

I just need to take a break from playing games now and then. :)

expat? I don't remember that.

reddit is a cesspool, so i rarely bother with it, even when it shows up from a search.

I (like to) think i would pay for a service where someone filtered slashdot & reddit comments to what is actually informational, interesting, and truly funny. IOW, what comment moderation was intended for.

Dude, i hope ya feel better.

I have to agree with your thought process here. Second opinion, costing more, pain killers, disc vs disk, spine is more important, etc.

Thanx for posting! And get better!

We can defeat gravity. The problem is the paperwork involved.
