      I saw that and did this :laugh:
      I truly appreciate how brazen they are. The fact they pull this off with a straight face is impressive. "What, us? We would never. We don't know who would do such...

      yeah, this isn't making much sense to me. I could maybe understand actual fabric in daylight, but a computer monitor? I've done significant calibration of my monitor and printed photo calibration...

      Like anything else politicized, it's a sea of gray. I think this will result in a degradation from our current state, but less of a degradation than would be seen without it. Does that make you...

      I thought that resulted in burning and whatnot. The 0f temps, everything in white, and high winds more closely resembles Heaven. Think I'll go push some old ladies down stairs and see if that...

      You're surprised to hear that dog food might be made of ****e ingredients that cause health issues? I always assumed pet food was borderline poisonous to begin with.

      Set the alarm clock to go off every two hours. Smear puke on the clean cloths in the closet. In the middle of dinner, throw a turd on the table. We had five years between ours and I mostly forgot...

      Wrong analogy. The kids are grabbing all the plates of the same size and correctly placing them in the cabinet. You are telling them to take one plate at a time, open the cabinet door, put it in...

      I'm all for teaching the kids different methods. That's not what they're doing though. They are taught the long method and then forced to do it that way for ~1.5 years. Surely you can remember...

      What? No. They aren't taught the standard algorithm until 6th grade, she's in 4th. They figured it out on their own. They fully comprehend what they're doing. Have you actually worked with...

      - Common Core (The long method is a...

      I'll second this. I mostly ignored all the moaning around Common Core until helping my 4th grade daughter with her homework. Serious :screwy: Not because "that's not how I did it" but because of...

      OK. The first thing you should sort out is how much heat over how many days you need. If you're heating from an ambient of 50f for two weekends a month, options like electric could be well suited. ...
