Out of the Blue

It's Labor Day here in the U.S., as we celebrate one of our most poorly explained holidays. This marks the unofficial end of summer, and true to that we just yesterday noticed what appeared to be some birds starting to migrate south, demonstrating that while this may be unofficial, it' seems pretty accurate.

Heat index or temperature? I don't doubt you, just wondering what's up with weather.com -- showing triple digits now, maybe I just misclicked.  
Truth is brutal. Prepare for pain.

Oh, and I call "BS" on the curved glasses causing faster beer drinking.

It is official. I am now old. I bought a nose hair trimmer today.

Am I still allowed to play video games? Because I just reinstalled all HL2 to replay it and get ready for the Black Mesa mod!


I have not posted much in the past few years, but I do check out the site all the time. Hell, I visited this site when I was a teenager and now I am in my 30's damn it. Good job Blue, keep up the good work!



Battling car fires?

Yea I have had a couple of those trimmers - they all suck - but it isn't as bad as yanking the things.


Don't forget your ear hair...

You pay 25% more because we like to take advantage of our neighbors. You get 25% less because people like there numbers to feel right, 763mL is just wrong.
No. Back in the 70's when this was done up in Canadaland, the price jumped by about 25%, and the quantity dropped by 25%. In the "great change-over" what you're talking about has nothing to do with it. Welcome to the great screw-over.

Yeah that's only because they've been trying realllllly hard to get the US to switch to metric for the last 25 years. Just remember if they ever do, you're going to end up getting screwed over just like we did up here. 25% less product, and pay 25% more.

Bah I live within 150km of the US border. That whole "our/or" thing is interchangeable, it's why you can buy everything in two standards of measurement here still, and why grocery stores sell everything double stamped in lbs/kg, L/oz/Gal. Never mind that every digital thermometer they sell here comes in dual setting mode still. Hah.

Poorly explained to the international community? I would be shocked if people in america were unsure about the reasons for the holiday.

Labor day in Canada too. We're lazy on both sides of the border today! The end of summer in Canada starts when the mosquito's no longer drag away dogs, that's usually the start of October.
