From the staff meeting minutes about last Sunday's church service:
The reading of the Passion was excellent, especially [parishioner's name] as Pilot.
Was he doing pilates at the time?
I tried doing Pilates once, but the scarring was atrocious.

I was only responding to the claim that throwing your plastic bags in the trash causes no harm. Demonstrably false with a 10 second search.

Yep, plastic bags in the ocean killing wildlife is totes cool as long as you're not directly responsible.

Maybe I should rethink my stance against drone strikes since I'm not the one piloting them and pulling the trigger.

Re: Worthwhile intertubez finds

I get new plastic bags every shopping trip. I've got a sock that holds old bags and I pull one out whenever I need a bag, but if the sock is full they go right in the trash. I remain unconvinced that anything bad comes of throwing old grocery bags in the trash. https://www.cnn.com/2019/03/18/asia/d...

Re: Market Failure!

I had something similar when I was a kid, on my feet and wrists. I had to soak my feet and wrap my wrists for 30 minutes everyday in some sort of "medicine" (no idea, I was that young) and had to wash using phisoderm, which used to come in a bright green bottle. I never went barefoot until I was lik...

Re: Petty annoyances

It seems counter-intuitive to me that storing passwords on a 3rd party site is any safer than creating your own fairly long password, and variations thereof, and just remembering it somehow, even it it's storing a text document online somewhere with hints. Same here. Though my passwords are stored ...

Re: A thread for mocking politicians

There's a lot to the idea that terribleness of a non economy destroying nature can and will be rationalized away and especially by a base who has rallied around the idea that everything bad about the guy is made up fantasies. If he closes the border and destroys the economy a lot of people will jus...

Re: Market Failure!

Note that "Fragrance Free" marketing only means there's no added fragrance. Checking a random Aveeno FF product on Amazon, the ingredients include coriander, cardamom, and myrrh extracts, among the usual surfactants and emollients.
