      Trying to get into my work garage this morning. We have the little RFID thingy in the windshield to make the gate/door go up when you pull near it. Dude in front of me pulls up to it, but not close enough for the RFID to register.

      And just sat there.

      After 3 minutes and traffic stacking up behind me, I start honking at him. He just sat there.

      Honk again, as I want to try to educate him how this thing works. He throws it in park.

      Great.

      He's not mad, but gets out clearly not knowing what to do. I tell him that he needs to move forward for it to work. He gets back in his car and (I'm not kidding) pulls 2 inches forward. Gate/door doesn't open.

      I proceeded to find somewhere else to park for the day.

      Yeah Illinois sucks to drive in for the most part. Get me by the Mississippi and its a little prettier but Iowa people scare me.

      This Rolling Stone outrage is as dumb and shallow as I think it is, right? I feel like people are mad because he's handsome. America is dumb sometimes.

      Why can't I enjoy a couple drinks without getting drunk, and avoid that "early hangover" feeling? Sometimes its hard just to find any kind of middle ground.

      I've been meaning to talk about this but really don't want to derail the thread. Bring it up next time you're in chat. Id enjoy talking to someone reasonable about it.

      Observation:

      Sure I just had a great workout. Sure I'm doing better everyday, but why do I get the jimmy legs and dry heaves when I really push myself? Granted its probably 80° in my studio apt on the 6th floor of an old ass building, but my god I feel like I've got the DTs sometimes. It's too hot and I went too hard.

      If you haven't experienced it already, leg day provides one with plenty of concern as to how he/she will traverse declines in a sidewalk and walking down stairs. Its quite comical when I struggle in such a way.

      Ok, so I was totally against 'skinny jeans' until recently, when I realized I was aging myself by continuing to parade around in baggy pants I finally bit the bullet, threw a bunch of baggy Lucky brand jeans in a bag for the Salvation Army, and went clothes shopping.

      I ended up trying on a bunch of jeans, and stumbled upon 'Seven boot cut jeans';Hot damn they fit nice! So, I bought several pairs, and headed to 'Express men', and Banana Republic; where I grabbed some nice tailored fit shirts

      Now here I am wearing tight jeans, and tailored shirts; all the while feeling ten years younger

      Now if it wasn't for these damned grey hairs in my beard

      It is. The article is pretty good, people are just overreacting like usual.

      My thighs are too big for skinny jeans, so I never had any interest in them, but I went to levis one day and tried the "tapered" jeans that are loose up top and get slimmer as they go down, and they were great

      In light of a recent current event, I realized that in my neighborhood that I have lived in for 15 years now, I drive past two streets on my way to my house, and I haven't a clue what their names are. I don't know the name of the street my brother has lived on for 5 years, and I go there every week, and the same with my sisters house too. I do not know the phone number of my place of work, If I lost my cell phone I wouldn't be able to call in sick, and I don't know the address either.

      I am however a pretty smart guy.

      The ice machines outside the labs at work have stickers that say "Not for consumption", but I put some in my root beer and it's alright.

      I was at some fancy lotion/perfume place with my wife over the weekend and they had bath salts so I went all into my "mode" and started freaking out with excitement and itching my neck while asking the cashier how much they were and how strong they were. Embarrassing the lady on a daily basis

      Snoop dogg, now Snoop lion, should have changed his name to Snoop Wolf, because a lion is actually a cat. Snoop Lion just doesn't make sense to me.

      they could be "princesses"- the one no one would marry because they're nasssstayyyy.



      there are two types of sh*tty drivers.

      Type A: The ones who are sh*tty at pretty much everything they do. They usually bomb around in a crappy Geo Metro or neglected MKIII Jetta, or a wanna-be drift car. They cut people off, don't signal, on/off gas inconsistently, fly through parking lots, etc. Usually found wandering the parking lots of 7-11 at midnight or the local "Sav-On" beverage place that sells 40s.

      Type F: The ones who drive really nice cars, like the $100,000 MB SUV, or any number of luxury cars and/or SUVs. They ignore the concept of left lane to pass, speed limits are not to be exceeded (as opposed to being the minimum limit), don't keep in their lanes when turning, signal the wrong way, drive 2 miles with the blinker on before they finally change lanes, ignore "Yield" signs and end up driving 10mphs under the speed limit. Usually found clogging up the entrance of Costco because they think they'll find a spot up front.

      There's what I was talking about. It's not "not safe for consumption", it's actually "not for human consumption", so it's probably fine. If dogs can eat it then we can. I think they just don't want students making ice cream and old fashioneds or whatever. Of course I say this as somebody who eats food that seagulls have touched.
