Finding his inner redneck, Male, 51, from Antarctica

Getting random SMS: "Hi, it's Sophia from Warren for President. Is this Marv?" So tempted to reply: "Are you cute?" Feb 22, 2020 at 4:59 PM

      W. Hollywood weirdos want to rename LAX to Obama Airport. Can't we wait until presidents are dead for 10 years til we name stuff after them?

        I just feel that getting something named after you while you are living is bad juju. Like a drain on your life essence, i.e. premature limp-dick, etc.

        Honestly I believe that no airport should be named after you. If you're president it should be a named representative of the the country you represent.

        I saw a great production of The Magic Flute at the LA Opera years ago. It was before this current one that everyone is raving about but I quite enjoyed it.

        When you are doing deep insertion everyday it starts to mess with your head. You keep telling yourself that it satisfies your emotional needs, but after a while you realise that you are living a lie and that you actually need a little bit of romance in your life too.

        When I see subjective reviews include X destroys Y or some variant, my internal bullshit meter pegs. Reviewer is unable to distinguish between personal preferences and comparison attributes, let alone understand that their personal preferences probably don't extrapolate to the universe.

        "String-Select?" With, I suppose, the caps? Weird. I'd say it was Microsoftish, except I suspect many languages use this kind of terminology these days.

        One of my jobs for tonight: discover how to search for text in PDFs. An early google tells me there is something called pdfgrep.

        @E_Schaaf - I think I was more agreeing/teasing. That artist has been known for fusing black metal, baroque and breakcore, primarily. I was enjoying your description of baroque->metal mainly.

        Be heavily involved in your kids lives and take action when they’re hurting about something. Young suicides are statistically increasing a lot.

        Fire hit Oak Park, where I thought it would hit based on my use of the Force. Actually it was more the direction wind and my knowledge of the local hills from all that hiking. Was why I didn't want to leave and didn't believe the LA County semi-fake "mandatory" evacuation.

        I once bought my mother a coffee machine and it arrived in the evening. Stupid as I was I couldn't wait till the other day and without thought tested a few coffees. Huge mistake.
        I was awake till 5am and the last 4 hours of it felt uncomfortably numb. Was both awake and dead at the same time. Never again.
