when my best friend starts a text with "Omg" it could preface anything from "I just noticed my socks don't match!" to "A meteor just took out half my neighborhood!"

lyrics 

I guess it all blew up in Missoula
There just was no other way
After months of going crazy
There was nothing left to say
But when the dust had finally settled
And the air had quickly cleared
Things were better off than I had feared

i'm a one-issue voter, and that issue is "no palm trees in texas"

I finally got my best friend to go into therapy and see a psychiatrist some months ago, and he seems so much happier now.

This just popped into my mind while watching Mythbusters last night.

We need to be VERY careful about who we ally with online, because Russian trolls are becoming very good at looking like exactly the kind of people that leftists would gravitate towards.

There is a story suggested by this slide rule case.

The underside of the top flap of the case has my dad's name written on it, but it's crossed out, and my mom's name WITH HER FIRST MARRIED NAME is written underneath it, meaning that while my mom was still married to her first husband, my dad gave her his slide rule.

Could this be how things started with them, and could there possibly be a geekier way for things to start between two people than the gift of a slide rule? :ms_thinking:

Looking through my mom's desk for a pair of scissors, I found her gigantic slide rule from college, in a nice leather case. Never know when you might need that again, I guess.

capitalism, boomers, rant 

my dad, btw, retired at age 62 with a defined benefit pension plan (in addition, he was bought out with 70 weeks' pay as a lump sum) and will never have to worry about money again for the rest of his life.
