I don't know whether you are arguing about the same kind of exercise (running and pumping iron don't require the same kind of attire), but I must say that having changed my running outfit from random five to ten year old t-shirts found in the ‘maybe good for wearing while home alone’ pile to clothing designed for running (initially mainly because I received it as a gift), I am never going back to the worn tees. It was utter pain running in +30C while wearing a chafing t-shirt that weighed half a kilo and got heavier every minute. The nipple issue was not pronounced (i.e. not bloody, but it still hurt), but I have had to miss a week of running because of bloody legs caused by cotton chafing. It's a real issue for runners, and marathon and ultra runners often cover their strategic body parts with vaseline or the like to minimise the risk of bloody thighs, for example. Plus, as long as we're here, while sweating is pretty much a welcome byproduct of exercise, it can also be a big problem when it hits your eyes (AND you've got nothing to wipe it off with because everything you're wearing is a sweat sponge).
So the snobby people can laugh all they want while having sexual intercourse with themselves, it does not change anything. Specially designed clothing is better suited for the purpose than random stuff haphazardly thrown together. That said, moving one's arse in random clothing is infinitely better than not moving it at all.
The wire on wired headphones has never been a problem
No, you got it wrong. The *plug* has never been a problem. The wire has been a huge problem. I have had to throw away many pairs of headphones with broken cables. Had to change the cable at least ten times. Cannot count the times when I've needed to fix the damn wire (one infinitely thin thread, damn nigh unfixable) and finally ended up with a butt ugly concoction that ultimately always breaks. No. The plug is fine and it was a shite move by Apple to get rid of it, I don't like it. But the wires, they have always been a problem. They break. A lot.
Agreed. That or speed bumps every block. That will frustrate the majority of drivers and indirectly force the problem elsewhere.
In our corner of the world, it's possible to have traffic signs installed that indicate ‘Closed for traffic’ and then add exceptions, such as for the local residents, public transportation, and service vehicles. That should pretty much do the trick, as far as Waze is concerned. As long as the road has been paid for by the local government, they *should* have a say in who gets to use this or that road and for what purpose. Streets in residential areas should not be used as thoroughfares, they have not been designed for that and it's not safe for anybody.
The YouTube app is a sad joke - the TV supports a USB keyboard and mouse, but the YouTube app doesn't, so you have to use the shitty on-screen keyboard to search. Worthless.
Can't you pair the app to your YouTube account and then use your computer for searching and streaming the video to your television? I cannot say for other manufacturers, but the YouTube app installed on our Philips set allows you to do that and that's how I use it, at least on those rare occasions when I watch YouTube on TV. Really beats the hell out of using the remote for searching.
Buy the ticket online or at the cashier's, the driver only needs to point the code reader at the ticket (printed or on-screen) and off you go. Or use a transportation card with an embedded RFID chip akin to the Oyster in London. No need to wave your coins and waste other people's time. Use designated public transportation lanes (also available to taxis and perhaps electric cars). No stopping at stops where no one is waiting and no one in the bus has pushed the "I want to get off" button. Mandate seatbelts on long distance trips.
See, I made buses way faster *and* safer. Now, if anybody could explain this stopping and opening doors at railway crossings, cos that definitely sounds stupid.
