The problem is, I do not notice when I do it.
The simple rule is this: there are no apostrophes in possessive pronouns. Very consistent.

Re: EU, Greece...!

BTW Timothy, who is your avatar? It is a photo I found in a book titled "Fun with Chemistry." The photo goes with an experiment called something like "Fire Makes Water." I think it's a demo book for kids' experiments from like the 1970s or something, but I am pretty sure that kid grew up to be a se...

Re: EU, Greece...!

I think you might be right Mo. It's looking like the referendum is likely to pass. Looks like Germany's tough love strategy of locking them out of the EU house has worked. I guess spending a night with nowhere to sleep and nothing to eat can do wonders in adjusting a person's attitude. ?? Are you r...

Re: Takin Out the Trash

We have single stream recycling here, so separate indoor can for recyclables. Pretty much everything that can be recycled gets recycled. Partly because there's a city ordinance against throwing away cardboard, and partly because it's cheaper to recycle than it is to get a larger can from the trash g...

Re: Marriage is Totally Gay

I was pleased to find that the reaction at the fire station (my new one) could be summed up as, "Let them get married. Why the fuck would anyone have a problem with that?" These are people who tend to be pretty blue-collar conservative, so it's gratifying to see that acceptance has come that far. I...

We're also somewhat unique in being able to outlast anything else in a chase...

Well, if you took that $4/hr and gave it to the minimum wage folks you'd be at, what, $11.75 or something? Sure, your shareholders would go into revolt, you'd have no free cash to do any kind of reinvestment, and you'd probably end up having to fire a bunch of people in a year or two, but you'd be p...

It's definitely not sipping whiskey. It's several steps up from McCormick's Bourbon Flavored Distilled Alcohol Product, but it's not good. But if you're going to dilute it down with ginger ale or coke or some such, no point doing it with Buffalo Trace, because that's a waste of good whiskey, and no...

For something I'd always thought of as probably cheap and undrinkable, Wild Turkey 101 is pretty good. I would guess it has less rye in the recipe than Four Roses Yellow Label and Bulleit, but it's very smooth for 50% alcohol. Yeah, it's pretty good for mass-market stuff. Then again, I'm prefectly ...

Not surprised Snow got knifed. Sad that Arya failed her test, and is going insane or dying. Was good to see Meryn Trant get stabbed to death, though.

For Sale. Baby Shoes. Never worn.

Before I dump this on CL or whatever, I have a Bose Acoustic Wave (first edition) shelf stereo system that I haven't used in a bit. Still works great, no real space/use for it. Will ship. $300 + shipping. Even has a carrying case and a fancy pedestal for multiple aux inputs if that's your bag.
