Man, that sucks about that skier...

Gaming isn't worth people dying over/for.

Nothing wrong with dying do what you love. Most people never get that opportunity. Most of us just die by inches.


That's true. Though I never understood the frantic desire to do everything possible if a person realizes he/she will die soon. 1) Why not do it now anyways? 2) The dying person will either never remember or he/she will be going to a better place and probably won't care.

I see three girls in bikinis walking by three guys playing Pokémon Go, totally ignoring the girls. Well, at least they won't breed.

And if you're going to play ... get the $#!&# off the bike path!

You say that, but interest in sex is at an all time low in Japan, where people have been addicted to devices for decades. There are so few babies being born that the population is expected to fall from 120M today to 90M by 2050.

And ... ?

His point is, I assume, that they would be ignoring those "bikini babes" with or without Pokemon Go or indeed with or without smart phone in hand.

This isn't Japan. Different culture.

The act was its own reward. Ridiculous to expect a large cash award from somebody who is homeless, and lucked into that kind of money.
Large, no. Reasonable, yes. Yeah, they guy is not loaded. On the other hand, someone did just return his entire life savings essentially. A .05% tip seems a bit stingy. The cabbie's suggestion of $500 seems to be in the neighborhood... .5% is $935, so somewhere between $500 and $935 would seemingly be appropriate, IMHO.

I mean, consider the cabbie could have just kept it...

We should pay people to not be thieves?

Ridiculous that anyone should expect a reward for being honest. What's next, expecting a tip for helping an old lady with her groceries or some spare change for keeping an elevator door open? A pathetic society we've become.

The 1902 invention of air conditioning has long been hailed as one of the most important inventions of the 20th century, one that has forever changed the way we live.

Yeah, I dunno about that. AC is nice but hardly necessary - for me at any rate. I'd argue that the really important inventions are the refrigerator and toilet paper. I could live without most modern trappings but not having a fridge and TP would really suck.

Depends on the climate... a lot of the world would be/and is an absolute humid hell without air conditioning. Definitely one of the most important inventions, not the most important invention of the 20th century.

Hooray, not so minor improvements in the quality of life!


I can't imagine living where I do without AC. The feels like is 109F, and the lows at night are generally like 79F with 80% humidity. This is a consistent pattern that can last from early May to late October. The only thing that can break that in the thick of summer is a hurricane, which you better hope your power is back after 2 days, cause then it really gets hot. Think of it like this Cutter, if it weren't for AC all of us southerners would be up where you are, getting in your personal space.

Hmm .. I just open the window - the AC (Pacific Ocean breeze) is always on. Thumbsup

It was 105 in LA a couple weeks ago. You just opened the window?

The LA area has micro-climates. I live nearby the ocean. When it's 105 inland, we get a marine layer and cool breeze that stops it from getting hot.

But ... it also means we get hordes of tourists.

Fireworks were awesome last night! We saw fireworks launched close by via a barge on the ocean in Torrance beach and were also able to watch the entire South Bay's fireworks from Redondo Beach to Malibu. Thumbsup

The biker video seems surreal. Ok you have the merge issue, like that shit happens a lot even with cars and to be honest he swears way to much at a stranger, that right there is going to raise the I don't give a shit stakes for the recipient of such abuse.

But the part that doesn't seem real, he waves and goes over to a police officer and in just a matter of a few seconds, the cop buys in and is able to quickly stop the driver. Where I came from that would be minutes to explain and almost assuredly they wouldn't have done anything but say "we'll keep an eye out".

This guys says "I got on video a lady trying to run me over at the merge, I got in on video"... Cop "Ok follow me". I don't think I've seen a cop be so attentive but also just so gullible to a citizens request, unless this is a biker sting going on with the cops.

Nothing gullible about it, the cop is following up on a complaint like he's supposed to. Not the worst merge I've ever seen or experienced, but it was clear who had the right of way. Maybe the lady wasn't initially paying attention, but she sure as didn't give a shit when it became obvious.

I just have never seen a cop respond so perky. Verbatim...

Around here in the LA area .. there would be at least one helicopter and 10 squad cars following her ... then when she pulls over .. guns drawn .. cross-hairs aimed between the eyes.

On a recent vacation, I encountered a black bear on a trail. It was quite the thrilling and scary experience.

Soap operas for adult men. Just like Mad Men. Reminds me of the reason I disliked high school and being a teenager so much. But I guess there is market to relive those melodramatic days.
Nothing beats soft porn hidden under the guise of Tits and Dragons.

You mean other than the real thing like being sexual with a spouse or gf/bf? Unless it's preferable to watch vs. participate?
