      Why is it that, when something bad happens, somebody always says "Keep your loved ones close, everybody." What the **** does that even mean? What am I supposed to do, keep tabs on everybody I know? Give everybody more hugs just so I can say, at their funeral, that I got in a last backslapper? Just sort of worry, formlessly, that something is going to happen and act all clingy with them until they tell me to go the **** away? What's the deal here?

      Speaking of Subway...Why is it everytime I go in there, the person in front of me is ordering subs for their whole office or a small asian country? Last night a guy was ordering for his family, who was sitting down across the resturant. He kept yelling at them asking what all they wanted as he's in line and they'd yell it back.

      I love the fact that we're putting 200 kW of solar on our roof at work. It's warm, fuzzy, green stuff that I can do a lot of marketing with, as we're the top LEAF dealer in the US and top Volt dealer in NorCal.

      But Christ alive, the sounds of them installing the PV on the roof is driving me CRAZY!!! Ahhhhhhhhh

      Incorrect fine sir.

      BTW I basically grew up in Defuniak Springs/Crestview area. Family still lives all over that area and I periodically work there. I've been to Niceville more times than I can count.

      I can't understand people who on Facebook e.g. congratulate their s/o's on their B-day and tell them they love them and do this while they're with them. One of the most annoying things I see on Facebook.

      Precisely wrong. Sex trafficking is almost everywhere, and it's completely off the radar unless you're involved in the sex trade yourself. By necessity, modern slaves are not out making sandwiches. It's underground, extremely well-hidden, and is deeply tied into the drug trade. Anywhere the cartels operate - which is to say, just about everywhere there's a major city - there's human trafficking.

      GreenWagen knows what the hell he's talking about; perhaps you missed where he said he's dealt with a lot of human trafficking cases. Consider that perhaps, you don't know everything about every topic, and learn.

      Try opening your eyes, trafficking is EVERYWHERE.

      It's that endemic intellectual equivalency - "my opinion is just as good as yours. " Doesn't matter if it's any better informed, more factual, better researched if it disagrees with one's own predetermined stance on the matter. And God forbid your ego relax enough to, say, ask a question or two to get a better idea of why the other person thinks what they do. No, defend that opinion to the death, come hell or high water!

      Nobody knows everything, but everybody should have a clear idea of what they don't know, a healthy respect for the expertise and experience of others, and the mental flexibility to change your opinions if there's a good reason to. Otherwise, you're just a smartass who can't defend his opinions.

      Which is another rant, come to think of it.

      Luckily I've paid for most of the trip already (moderate resort, most food, park tickets, airfare, transportation). I can't believe how much it costs to be pampered by a mouse and a duck.

      I'm practicing using the word "No" in response to any questions my wife and kids ask me, maybe that will save me some $ from here on out.

      I listened to a podcast (I know I know) a few weeks ago on trafficking. The thing that opened my eyes the most was that its not always the sex trade that is involved. Restaurants and agriculture were singled out. I never thought about it before, but they basically said a lot of what we call illegal migrant workers are actually indentured workers.

      My point? Sex makes headlines, but the majority of what we'd call modern day 'slaves' are in agriculture, and there are far more of them than we think.

      Except in Texas.
      Here they are actually illegal migrant workers.
      But we do have indentured workers in other industries.

      Hey dickhead, you parked like this silver benz and left me hardly any room to open my door and get back in my car. Don't ****ing shoot me a look as you walk away from your car. Times that like that I wish I had a beater car and would've had no problem opening my door as far (and as hard) as possible.

      And a lot of them are, as you say, indentured workers - endlessly "working off" an exorbitant fee paid to those who smuggle them into the US and place them in a job, but never seeing a cent of what they "make." The distinction between that and slavery is kind of academic, but it's worth making just to clarify all the different facets of the issue.

      Dear GasStaion (QuikTrip),

      Dear Tim Horton's line up people,

      First of all the ****ing queue isn't that big to begin with, move the **** forward so people can get in the door.

      Secondly, why is there always some jackass male that comes in and feels the need to ask the female in front of him "is this where the line starts?" No retard, we're working backwards from the till to the door today *******.

      Then the creepy older lady says "just let me hit that" as she presses the button so I can process my debit card. It was all I could do not to laugh.

      Yeah well some of our locals are just numptys. Actually I blame the local University whose students flood the place and stand there with 6 feet between each other with their heads down staring at their phone. Then when the cashier says "can I help who's next?" they look like a god damn deer stunned in headlights with no idea where they are. "Ummmmmmmmmmmm..... uhhhhhhh...... I will have ummmm..........."

      This slows the process greatly. We get young students from all over the province and they all seem to drive like morons and are generally lacking the most basic of skills. But hey, they're smart cause they're in University right?

      Penn State alums/students:

      Do they make you sign some sort of commitment to be the worst drivers in the universe upon being accepted to that place? Some dude (when I say dude, he was actually like 50-60) in a brand new MKZ almost took my front end off on my way to Wawa, sure enough PSU plate. He just pulled out across 2 lanes of traffic, I didn't even see him look. Any time I am cut off, nearly hit, surprised by a stupid action with no blinkers, subjected to random highway hard braking, epic lane wandering, or see any other blatantly dangerous bad driving behavior, it is perpetuated by someone with at least one dumbass paw print sticker on the back of their car. There's also a direct correlation between the number of PSU-related stickers/license plates and the level of asshattery being committed.
      I wish I could say I was the only person who noticed this, but I know several people in real life who've noticed the same thing I do know people who've managed to escape Happy Valley as great drivers, so I'm puzzled. But mostly annoyed.

      I cringe every time I hear that. (Because grammar police.)

      But seriously, you've been in this fast-food joint at least a hundred times, and you probably order the same thing every time. Why are you staring at the menu on the wall?

      Dear Girl,

      Normally I would not have gone that far out of my way to help you, as it is obvious you are dumb as a post. Thankfully, you realized that your brain was probably not your greatest asset at this point in your life. Your shirt was thin, your boobs were big, your bra was in a drawer somewhere and your left nipple was pierced. So of course I would be happy to help you. However, next time leave the boyfriend in the hall until we are done.

      I have some incredibly lazy co-workers. One finished up the roll of paper towels only to leave the cardboard roll laying on the counter in the kitchen at the office. It must've been too brutal of a 10 foot walk to the closet to grab a fresh roll. Oh, but they must be good workers with that sort of ethic.

      My point? Sex makes headlines, but the majority of what we'd call modern day 'slaves' are in agriculture, and there are far more of them than we think.
      I feel like there are human trafficking busts every quarter or so on the news and they're always based in Asian-owned nail salons or buffets.

He just pulled out across 2 lanes of traffic, I didn't even see him look. Any time I am cut off, nearly hit, surprised by a stupid action with no blinkers, subjected to random highway hard braking, epic lane wandering, or see any other blatantly dangerous bad driving behavior, it is perpetuated by someone with at least one dumbass paw print sticker on the back of their car. There's also a direct correlation between the number of PSU-related stickers/license plates and the level of asshattery being committed.
      I wish I could say I was the only person who noticed this, but I know several people in real life who've noticed the same thing I do know people who've managed to escape Happy Valley as great drivers, so I'm puzzled. But mostly annoyed.

      Bro, do you even lift? When you only have 90 horsepower, you don't ever lift.
