      Went to ER with kidney stone. Kept pressing the pain button on the bed. Demerol has nasty withdrawal symptons. Don't do the hard stuff kids.

        Sounds excruciating, sorry man! May your recovery be quick and that you're back on the trails soon.

        Like can be an odd button to press sometimes. "liked" as in "sorry to hear this."

        Wishing you quick recovery from pain, and from the pain killers. They give drugs for the pain, then drugs for the side effects of the drugs, then... And so it goes on. But hey, I'd rather the option was there than not there.

        @spwath, Amir only understands his own points of view and his own conclusions: it is his reality, and you can't puncture it with anything as simple as somebody else's measurements.

        Just to prove we all have biases (no, to prove that I do!): I'd find it hard to listen to something that sounds like one of those synthetic cream substitutes people used to put on synthetic deserts, errm, desserts, in the 1960s. I can almost remember the TV Ad as if it happened!

      California Amber Alerts so annoying. Waste of taxpayer funds. The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few or the one.

        It's sad and difficult question to answer. We can frame it another way. What if we could save more lives diverting Amber Alert funding? Perhaps provide morning breakfasts to the disadvantaged? Or even basic health care to 100 families for a year for every alert not issued? My bet is you guys don't know what it's like to be poor. I grew up poor.

        Nicely put. I agree with you about the difficulty of responsibly allocating funds. Consider the fiasco of abstinence-only education. The money is out there. But its allocation is driven more often by politics than by solid research.

        While a nice thought and something to consider, you know the funding wouldn't be put to good use. This is America. It would probably end up in some rich fucks pocket before being used to help people.

        If some of my older relatives didn't rely on Facebook for familial communication, I'd probably get rid of mine after watching that display.

        Then again, most of them might get rid of it after that too.

        Honestly it's such a drain on my day and productivity - and I'm saying that as someone who's unemployed!

        I can see the argument. The movie is filled with homages/Japanese anachronisms and that combined with Anderson's style can come across as very condescending. I personally thought the movie was charming and the only strange thing I noticed was that none of the dogs have Japanese names.

        That being said, Jen Yamato (I assume this is where you saw this spicy hot take) is terrible.

        Not sure that their going be paying top dollar for someone to sit in a car and stare out the window for hours on end.

        Convenient as Uber is (at least compared to taxis here in the Manila area), they can be skeevy as fuck sometimes. I use it fairly often since I don't have my own car and mass transit can be a massive PITA, plus I chat often with drivers— loads of them hate it and feel like the system has too much fun shafting them and wringing them dry.

        Which is why I don't use card. Cash payments mean tips if they're not assholes.
