Why do so many food products for sale proudly proclaim how few calories they have? That's why I buy food! I need calories to keep me alive! When I see something that says "Only 100 calories!" it makes me feel like I'm not getting my money's worth!

Capitalism is bad because it gave rise to the use of "disruption" and "impactful." Also "utilize" instead of use. If you are not a biologist, you should never use "utilize."

It doesn't take much for bulls of all breeds to go well beyond annoying.

The Amy Shark song "I Said Hi" has, in the first verse and repeated frequently through the song, the line "And all my veins pump blood into my throat". NO THEY DO NOT, ARTERIES DO THAT. Well, I guess even more technically it's your heart that does that, but it's definitely not your veins.

Scattering bulls in the wind right now, and I'm ready to start running yearlings. There never was a bull that wouldn't have made a better steer.

Seems like someone got a new phone, and is giving out the wrong number for it. I've gotten 4 calls from people obviously not wanting to talk to me.

I installed the OS X Sierra update 10.12.6 yesterday. Despite it being billed as a "security update", Apple used it to try to push Safari, Maps, and Siri on me again.

I'm running 10.13.4 High Sierra without any problems. Safari et al. are there, but they're not being "pushed" in any way that I notice.

My problem with apple maps is that apple carplay won't allow google maps on my new car. Total FU.

I had removed all of them from my Dock. When I installed the update, they were all back on the Dock again.

Oh, okay. That qualifies as a petty annoyance.

So, I have yet to make it past Question 10 on HQ. *sigh* Just a reminder, if anyone else here decides to sign up, mention me, DARidgely, and I get one free wrong question. Even if you don't want to do that, I'd appreciate others just checking it out and letting me know what they think.

This and the discussion of PF McManus in the TITTFPWDD thread, remind me of one of his bits on classification of cows as applicable to fishermen.

The Great Cow Plot
All cows are fishing enthusiasts, although their idea of fishing might better be described as "Chase the Fisherman." ... As fishing enthusiasts, cows can be divided roughly into two groups: participants and aficionados. Another grouping I find useful is simply Fast Mean Cows (FMC) and Slow Mean Cows (SMC).

The SMC, mediocre athletes at best, are usually content to watch the main events between the FMC and fisherman (thus the expression "contented cows"). They participate only to the extent of doing everything in their power to ruin an otherwise good running turf, apparently in the belief that a slow field improves the spectator sport.

The FMC are frequently referred to as "bulls." The term is usually preceded by harsh but accurately descriptive adjectives. It is sometimes argued that "bulls" is not an appropriate term for FMC since some of them are known to give milk. I disagree. Upon hearing the shout "Here comes a ... bull!" I have yet to see any of my companions wait around to argue over the sex of the beast.

Watching RuPaul's Drag Race just makes me feel so untalented and unaccomplished and lame.
This is still true except now it also makes me feel old.

Edited to add: especially when they say things like, "A reality show challenge? I was obsessed with the Kardashians when I was in high school!"
I should have listened to Warren. He was right again as usual.
