It’s called “atomic” because the clock that provides the data to the time broadcast is an atomic clock.

I specifically do this at Thai restaurants, where I order Pad Thai. Interestingly, my favorite Pad Thai is at chain restaurant Pei Wei. I’ve tried it at a lot of Thai restaurants, including a bunch actually in Thailand. I suppose they make it the way it’s supposed to be made, but I find it too soupy. I love the rice Read more

I wish I could just assign a notification to Messages, which didn’t sound for any other reason.  If there’s a way to do that I don’t know what it is.

One more rule, which no one is stating but I’m sure everyone is aware of: Do Not, Under Any Circumstances, Name Your Daughter Karen. (Or Your Son Either, For That Matter.)

Everyone gets to do what they want, but, Trinity Stahr? That violates the stripper name rule as well as the spell it normally rule. On the other hand, in this day and age weird names are normal, and a girl named Jane would be the weird one.

I remember Atlanta Braves outfielder Andruw Jones. Our group had season Rockies tickets close enough to the batter’s box so that I could taunt “Hey Jones, your mother can’t spell!” and he could hear me.

Strongly agree. The very early daylight in the summer is what messes with my sleep. It would be an hour worse if we stayed on standard time all summer. I don’t find the one hour change in the spring the least bit difficult, and the fall, when we’re given that hour back, is a piece of cake. Does anyone actually get Read more

What if I don’t return the carts to the corral because I know it’s someone’s job to collect them, and if everyone returned them he’d be out of a job? Sort of the same reason I avoid self-service checkouts (along with the fact that they hate me and never function properly when I use them).

I submit that your coworker was really a stupid person.

It will be a 9mm semi-auto loaded with hollow points and it won’t be for my friend.

I never got a flu shot because I never got the flu.” That’s like saying “I never wear my seat belt because I’ve never been in an accident.” Or “I’ve never bought a smoke detector because I’ve never had a fire in my house.”

I immediately scrolled down to the comments to see how long it would take for the first anti-vaxxer to comment. Sure enough, first in line! I’m looking forward to when the first COVID vaccines arrive, and the same anti-vaxxers set about trying to persuade everyone not to be vaccinated for COVID. As for me, I get my Read more

I have a KitchenAid too, which I fear may be starting to die because of the many times I’ve used it with the pasta attachment. I also have an old-fashioned steel, clamp on the tabletop, hand crank meat grinder. I bought it at a yard sale years ago for about $3. I’ve mostly used it to coarse-grind meat for chili.

For years I’ve taken eggs camping. Rather than try to keep whole eggs from breaking, or just to save space, I scramble them and put them a plastic bottle (an empty Gatorade bottle works nicely). I add a little “preservative” in the form of 1 jot of Tabasco per egg. You don’t really taste the Tabasco, the eggs just Read more

Dave Ramsey says to pay off one’s smallest debts first. He thinks the psychological benefit of clearing a debt is more important than the interest rates involved. I disagree with him on that, though I hate to disagree with a fellow Dave.

You can “OK Boomer” me all you want, but when I text a complete sentence, it will have have punctuation at the end. Often that’s a period. Of course, sometimes a text is just “No” or “OK”, which doesn’t need punctuation. I’m also weird in that generally I proofread texts before I send them. It used to be important to Read more
