I know I'm tilting against windmills... My truck has about 14" of suspension travel. I can take their speed-bumps at the speed limit.
High school aged children of my friends are all gaga over albums... They play the stuff on mom&dad's old turntables/amps in the basement... I've asked them and near as I can divine, they're into vinyl for the novelty of it. Their friends come over and they listen to records in social fashion but not because they sound better, or are more convenient, or have music available only on vinyl... They do it because it gives them something to look at while gossiping about who kissed who's whatever at the whereever... So I can't help but feel the novelty will wear off but clearly it hasn't so <shrug>.
Also, I'm not sure where you read that the vaccine is highly likely to cause a case of CP. It was probably not a credible source because I just googled for it and could only find information that conflicts with your statement. I would be greatful if you could provide a credible citation for that statement, since it seems your reasoning revolves around it.
I hadn't paid attention to consumer kitchen appliances but I bought a Breville Blender and I've been nothing but impressed with it... I didn't want to spend the dough on a vitamix or whatever those thigns are
I wish I could find a toaster oven that works as well as my Krups (which is itself kind of a piece of shit but works better than any other toaster oven I've ever owned).
ok, so I'm off topic.
You're going to bathe them in a mixture of Argon/CO2 while poking them with a steel wire that has a small ball on the end?
I stay current by contributing to one or two open source projects here and there. I also hack on my own personal projects learning new skills in the process. My mind isn't what it used to be. I don't find myself 'in the zone' as often and I find that I have to force the code out of me more often. I keep wondering when someone in management is going to realize that I'm just not as smart as they think I am, but then I seem to consistently pull off something amazing and everyone's happy.
There are younger folks on my team who do some amazing things that I can't do and there are younger folks on my team who are largely useless...
I like this place in my life. I realize I'm one catastrophic medical event away from unemployment and have been saving accordingly. If necessary, I could stop working any time, simplify, and live on a fairly meager but manageable income. If I can hold it together for 7 or 8 more years, I can retire in relative comfort.
HTML is trivial to learn. I use "<pre>" and "</pre>" for everything. I used "<img>" once... I also used "<blink>" once too but that was a stretch goal
