Maybe the skunk was just practicing holding his breath.

And goddam who the hell installed those root cellar doors? What a mess! Still, a root cellar is great. I'd love to have one. I actually have a book on root cellaring. It's amazing what you can store and for how long all without refrigeration if it's done properly.

That's not a root cellar, those are just Bilco doors for the basement. The rust and deterioration there is indicative of some aspects of this house. It was a beautiful luxurious home, but in serious disrepair. That pool, for instance, needs a new liner, as well as a new cover (and I'm guessing more). And then there's the mess. The entire basement was completely filled with junk, and the three car garage was absolutely stuffed to the brim with not only junk but garbage as well.

This presents a wonderful opportunity for someone who is willing to fix and clean it all up, but I'm not sure that's going to be us.

i hope it will be you. if the original house is that nice, cleaning it up would substantially increase its value. the initial Gs investment to do so i think would be worth it to live in a property you feel like you have no business affording.

On the positive side, I read a judge overturned part of FL's Stand Your Ground law. So there's that.
on a less positive note, "Trump supporters thought NPR tweeted ‘propaganda’ when it was actually the Declaration of Independence."

kinda ironic how he took a document intended to foment revolution 200 years ago as a personal attack against that idiot in the white house.

Maybe if they actually had sales on things that I want, I would participate. Judging from the previous sales, this will be a tedious waste of time.

Yeah, clearly people will buy damn near anything that's on sale tho, according to their statistics. I used to work in one of their warehouses for about 9 months, and people do indeed buy a LOT of junk. And dildos.

So many dildos.

as someone who works in the shipping side (UPS) can confirm so many dildos. old lady i once worked with had no idea what it was when one broke open. no one had the heart to tell her.

So someone bought a used midget (sorry, little person ) costume for 2.75 million dollars. Who is this person? I'd like to meet them. Maybe sell some quality bridge real estate to em...
It's a smart investment that will easily fetch $4 million in a few years.

i can't believe it went for 5 times more than a film used lightsaber. i'd way rather have that.

mitch mcconnell is a soulless demon of a politician who doesn't give two shits about doing the right thing. there is no circle of hell torturous enough for a dude who will defund the healthcare of millions of poor so that a couple billionaires can have some pocket change for an extra boat.

Holy shitballs that's an insane shot. 10 seconds to reach the target? Guy must have been sitting down or something. I love how they mention the US would have just dropped a bomb and killed all the civies in the area as well, lol, so true.


Before reading this my thought (jokingly) was he must have taken the curvature of the Earth into account. Then I read at that distance they do! Sneaky

not just the curvature of the earth, but the rotation of the earth as well! the planet rotates enough in the time and distance the bullet is fired to alter the shot by a few feet at those distances.

I need a Android/Music person's help with a question.
Neighbor (a senior) is looking for a music app to 1)find all the music on his phone regardless of where it is, and 2) play it. He uses some crazy app to download music off the net, but I haven't had much luck getting Google's music app being able to add the folder as part of his normal 'hey play music in this folder' routine.
If anyone could give me some insight I'd appreciate it (and don't care if it's a payed or free app), as long as it's fairly easy for him to use.

every android music app i've ever used will automatically scan the entire drive for sound files. did both on my old samsung and my current LG. personally i use poweramp; it does this too, so unless his crazy app encrypts his music into some funky format, just look for the option to rescan for music.

if hearing about vir has awakened a need to rewatch b5, you can stream it for free at https://www.go90.com/

no it's not a pirate site, it's run by one of the phone carriers as a promo, so totally legit. don't even have to sign up for anything.

as for vir, i like to think he's followed dr. franklin and g'kar in exploring beyond the rim =(

*sigh* Wishful thinking, I suppose...

he isn't dead! he's just exploring beyond the rim, with Dr. Franklin and G'kar =((((

Yeah JMS has been so busy with other stuff that he just couldn't get any other B5 stuff pushed forward. Now that half the cast are gone, and the rest are doing their own thing, I don't think we'll see any more.

Maybe someone could do a good reboot at some point...

not a reboot. i don't think anyone's sad attempt at remaking b5 would ever compare favorably to the masterpiece. but b5's timeline is so huge, they could just as easily write a new story anywhere from -billions of years to +1 million years. i'd certainly watch the story of valen during the first shadow war.

you guys are idiots. free speech has never been unrestricted. public safety has always been the do-not-cross line. if someone comes to harm as a direct result of the intent of your words, you're guilty and you always have been. this is nothing new.

I can understand if you give up in another state - I might feel the same way - but here in California we're the political equivalent of the Star Wars Rebel Alliance.

A few examples:

spoiler free wonder woman impressions:

watch it if you can. i don't know if i'm just succumbing to gender stereotypes, but it's made with an emotional sensitivity that every other comic film has utterly ignored. it earns its emotional payoffs - by the time they hit you, they matter because you're emotionally invested in the characters, because you felt the things they felt along the way.

gal gadot is impressive as diana. her physicality is utterly authentic - you believe she is the most powerful person on the screen. one thing that's always bothered me about female action heroes is that most of the time you can tell they're faking it because the actress is not a good athlete. whether it was scarjo as black widow or all the way back to linda carter as WW, just from the way they run, there's no power behind it - they run like girls, they punch like girls, etc. not so with gal. maybe it was from her time in the IDF, but she fights like someone who's trained to fight all her life. and oh by the way, she looks like a goddess on screen, too tall, too beautiful to be human.

the action scenes were every bit as good as, say, winter soldier, and the final battle was incredible. best one i've seen in a long time. go see it guys. if you enjoy the theater experience, this is one of the top reasons to go. maybe even take someone on a date, but that might backfire cuz she might go overboard with the girlpower thing and full on lezz out on you XD

Hmm, pretty sure I'd read something science-y that dogs can tilt their heads to more precisely locate the origin of a sound.

That's what I thought too.

i think the two things are related - they get curious about a sound so they tilt their heads to more precisely fix its location.

That Lexmark case is huge.

Should be some pretty big implications for people actually owning stuff they buy. I don't know how far this goes.

the justices were fully aware of the greater implications. they said this covers everything sold publicly that is not contractually bound at purchase - patent rights no longer apply after sale.
