For sure. I also say that with the full realization that this pandemic has had a far greater negative impact on many others in a variety of ways. Still, I’m willing to bet most of us are extremely ready to be anywhere other than our own homes.

The repair kits on Amazon are only $10, and it’s pretty easy to change them, but it is definitely aggravating. I’ve seen a few Nintendo apologists excuse it by saying that all products wear out, but there is clearly a problem here. The analog stick on the N64 controller that I purchased on launch day in 1996 still Read more

I don’t know if my household will survive until the end of the year if we don’t manage to get out sometime this summer. At this point the kids fight like an old married couple. My 7 year old son took up a huge interest in geography towards the end of 2019. At that time we were looking forward to taking him somewhere Read more

There are sadly plenty of people who read that thing and believe it.

Unfortunately the more years I put behind me, the less my body seems to appreciate it when I eat fried chicken. At the same time, I have a 94 year old grandmother who will still put away KFC or Chicken Shack (local delicacy) with no problems. I wasn’t lucky enough to inherit whatever set of genes allow her to do that.

They have no reason to discount anything since the console and the games you mention still sell well. Also, you should probably go ahead and buy a joycon analog stick replacement kit ahead of time so you have it at the ready when needed. I’ve now done the replacement three times, twice on the left, once on the right. Read more

Regarding rethinking croutons, a friend was telling me about a restaurant where they use pieces of fried chicken breading in their place. I have yet to experience it, but my favorite part of KFC has always been the remnants at the bottom of the bucket, so I can’t imagine it is bad.

I’ve talked a lot with my children about what facts and evidence are, and how I don’t believe things that aren’t supported by facts. That kind of ties in to your second paragraph. When my children are older, I will talk more about how there are thousands of religions/denominations in the world; either only one of them Read more

Oh my gosh, that is horrifying! It’s one of those things I’ve heard happens, but no one I know personally has ever mentioned it. I truly don’t understand how anyone would feel it was acceptable to touch another person uninvited. That is especially true for a stranger!

That’s a good point, although as you probably know the most religious part of Michigan as a whole is the Grand Rapids area. I live in Clawson, if you aren’t familiar with it, Clawson borders Royal Oak to the south and Troy to the North. Its culture is definitely more Royal Oak than Troy.

I understand that. The term is most commonly used to refer to dead religions and their associated stories, so I used that definition.

That is horrifying. Maybe my wife and I have unfriendly faces, or maybe our babies were ugly.

I have two kids and don’t remember being given that guidance. The early days of parenthood are also very chaotic, so I may not remember it.

No one in my family is very religious, most are sort of Christian by default. When my son was young my grandparents gave him a Little People Noah’s Arc as a gift. I never told him what it was supposed to be, just called it an old man and his boat. I always that that was an incredibly strange story to choose as a Read more

I don’t know where you live, but I don’t ever recall strangers attempting to touch our kids when they were babies.

I’ll come clean and reveal that I’m the one who wrote the question. When I raised the issue with the religious group meeting at the school it did cause a bit of a stir. The local TV news wanted to interview me on camera, but I decided against it. I’m not a closet atheist, but I also didn’t want to draw quite that much Read more

I am an atheist and I agree. I’ve read one of those evolution books to my son, and while it’s a great resource, it is dangerous to continue talking about science and religion as if they are related.

Interesting that you point to scientists who lived during times where you would basically be cast out of society (or worst) for denouncing religion. Read more

I’ve never seen anyone playing quidditch in the park. I need to live where you live.
