Re: Things I wonder about at work

Why do people put insulated lunch bags in the common fridge.

What bothers me most about this you don't know where that bag has been. Some people put in on the floor of their car on the way to work. Set in down on the parking lot [more]

Re: Metric at last?

I recently rented a car that began its life in Canada. It too had both sets of numbers on the speedometer, except the kilometers were written in larger print and miles in smaller.

I suspect the last sentence is the cause for the pulled post because you made a broad swipe against the intelligence of Texans. I've seen worse here every single day.

Buying a new laptop

I'm in the market for a new laptop. After using a desktop for my entire computing life, I've decided to buy a laptop instead of a desktop. Since I have not been shopping for these laptops before, I'm using online reviews of various [more]

Re: Metric at last?
