Re: If you think society's not devolving...

Second, even assuming that a young man finds an attractive young co-ed, he has to assume that there is a significant probability that she could wreck his life just by alleging rape after-the-fact. This generation of young men have been told since [more]

Re: Subway has killed the $5 footlong

I eat 6 inch subway sandwiches when traveling. They are everywhere.....not as many as Sonic drive in.....but almost.... in rural areas. If a town has a 'fast food place' it is now likely to be a sonic.

Re: That's some inequality!

I recently read (can't remember where) that beyond an annual income of about $75,000 or so, more money typically doesn't provide more happiness.

I assume that is, 75k after taxes and all living expenses<grin>

I wish you would have specified Ann Who. Throughout reading your excerpts, I thought I was reading Ann Coulter, except it didn't sound quite like her. Then I clicked on the article, and here it's [more]

I'm confused about the scoring... looks like I fall into three categories:

Re: That's some inequality!

But I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little bit envious - but only because I'd like to know what it's like to be that rich. I'd like to give it a try. I don't have any brilliant ideas though that I think would generate any income let alone $50 [more]

Re: That's some inequality!

Now $50 billion is a lot of money. Hell, $1 billion is a lot of money! Even $1 million is a lot of money...


Nah... I don't think $1 million is all that much nowadays.

Re: The Floggings Will Continue Til Morale Improves

At least Chicago doesn't have city income taxes. Here in Cleveland, city income tax is currently 2 percent, and Mayor Frank Jackson wants to raise it to 2.5. Something about a budget shortfall that has occurred due to state cutbacks... I don't know [more]

Re: Rubio Gay?

Also I'd like to add that I did all sorts of things in my younger days.....and I'm willing to bet, that everyone else has too.


I even kissed a girl once -- back in high school. She was the only date I ever had back in those days. [more]

Re: Rubio Gay?

I traced the links back to the initial source. Pretty sleazy and I'm sure this is all rumor put out there to destroy Rubio. We should not be furthering this baseless allegation.

I don't know about "typically", but they can, and do. Especially if they're closeted and trying to pass for straight.

Not only that, but a little black magic never hurts, either. We Sicilians know the Mal'occhio (the "Evil Eye"). <grin>

Re: A Good Reason to Vote 4 Trump

The 2nd software job I had at the tender age of 23 was with a federal gov't housing authority. I had about 2 hours of work to do each day. It was ridiculous. I begged for work and did everything I could to find stuff to do on my own time. The job [more]

Re: Chilled by Choice

It's 74 in the house, day and night when I'm home. 71 in the bedroom.....


Yikes... That's way too hot for The Baron. Would be feeling listless all the time.

For me, indoor temp of 65 to 68 degrees is about optimal.

Chilled by Choice

I thought my current roommate was nuts about temperature. He says if the indoor temperature of his home is higher than 55 to 60 degrees, his nose and throat get dry and he "can't breathe", especially when trying to sleep. (He grew up in an [more]
