Re: I just don't get it

People ignore or mishear lyrics all the time, which is why politicians used to use "Born In The U.S.A." at rallies, brides and grooms have U2's "One" played at their wedding, etc. So, uh, just wondering, but if you apparently don't listen to a single word of it, what would give you the idea "One" i...

Well, shit.
I suppose that would be incontinence too.

Fuckin' Valve wants all my money. My entire wishlist is at least half off, yet I have a massive backlog. I still haven't even played KOTOR II that I bought off of dhex oh so many years ago.

Re: Home, hearth & pets

Dogs are much higher maintenance than cats and puppies are higher maintenance than dogs. I understand wanting a puppy, but there are excellent reasons, on balance, to get a rescue dog. First, of course, you'll be sparing the dog's life. Second, no housebreaking or tearing up of furniture. Okay, may...

Clean up is worth at least 30%.
Do you still have to tip if you carry the body away yourself?

On the other hand, a quick search for Android apps finds a slew of graphing calculators apps under $10. I suspect some of those might be comparable to the overpriced hardwired kind. In related matters, you can get an Android emulator for the famed HP 12C for $2.50. Call me when it's a 28C, the Nerd...

Oof, yeah. My understanding is that a traditional vasectomy is not as bad as that, but is no picnic, in the sense of "do it on Friday so you have the weekend to recover."

I wonder about the difficulty of getting the plumbing reworked for a +40, unmarried, no-kids type. What's the cost on that procedure, does anyone know? The one I had was not very expensive (for surgery, anyway) to begin with, but I don't remember the number off-hand. Once the insurance was done, I ...
