I do cardio so I can enjoy my life. I can hike, go up stairs without getting winded, spend a day walking 10 miles around a city barely noticing I just did that. That is not a thing I'm capable of when I don't do regular cardio and only do weights. Crossfit is the one other thing that gets me there, but my body… » 4/15/15 7:35am Wednesday 7:35am

I felt that way too, and kept saying "the phone is in your hand that is so dumb!" But then I realized how much I take talking on the phone. And texting is talking to people without actually talking on the phone. Amazing.

I still don't get dictating texts though, unless you're driving. At that point I feel like… » 4/15/15 7:28am Wednesday 7:28am

The Repubs have this bizarre thing about stamping out every last possible instance of any kind of fraud in the world. If even one person out of a million abuses a program, that's it, we can't have it. There's a certain rate of fraud that will always be there, just like there will always be some amount of crime… » 4/14/15 8:03pm Tuesday 8:03pm

Voter ID laws, SNAP, welfare, etc.... Republicans are obsessed with destroying any systems just because there's a small percentage of fraud going on. It's completely idiotic. Risk-benefit ratio people, FFS. » 4/14/15 10:30am Tuesday 10:30am

I'm still at work and I want to leave and annoyed because I can't. Also had to deal with one of the worst human beings on the face of the earth today. Well, maybe not. The PF Chang's lady in the BCO post was worse. I know there's, um, issues and whatnot, but I can't not enjoy BCO, dangit. This is turning into free… » 4/13/15 10:15pm Monday 10:15pm

I think a big part of it in this is just how brutal the murder was. And then there was some weird shit about her converting to Mormonism and anal sex and it all sounds like a soap opera and people love soap opera crap going down in real life. » 4/13/15 6:22pm Monday 6:22pm

I know this isn't what we're talking about, but I'm so happy people in the US/english-speaking world (and Japan, and apparently everywhere) know about moomins. I loved those books when I was a kid growing up in Russia. » 4/13/15 5:28pm Monday 5:28pm
