Off-Topic / Are you "paperless"?
« on: October 15, 2019, 09:34:37 am »Message ID: 1297169
I opted for paperless with my insurance company, pay everything online autopay, and I still get so much mail from them. Once in a while I get a random physical duplicate of a bill and it makes me nervous like my online payment didn't take. What's weird is it isn't every month. Does that happen to anyone else?

Off-Topic / What do you say when asked "describe yourself"?
« on: October 11, 2019, 03:15:30 pm »Message ID: 1296735
Am I the only one who hates being asked that?

I remember once a teacher called on me in class and said "describe yourself" and I just locked up and couldn't think of a thing to say. His point was most people describe themselves primarily by their job, but I have never really placed a sense of identity in that. I have no great list of credentials & accomplishments to rattle off, I'm fine just being "a person" but it makes for a lousy answer to that question.

Off-Topic / What time would you wake up with no alarm?
« on: September 23, 2019, 09:35:14 am »Message ID: 1293911
Are you in good habit of waking up at the same time naturally or do you need an alarm set? How late would you sleep without it?

Off-Topic / Movie remakes that are better than the original
« on: September 19, 2019, 11:08:58 am »Message ID: 1293487
There seem to be very few new ideas in Hollywood anymore since almost everything is a remake these days and they're almost always inferior. Can you think of any where the remake is actually better?

The only one that comes to mind for me is True Grit. I actually liked the Jeff Bridges version from a few years ago a lot better.

Off-Topic / Do you collect anything?
« on: September 18, 2019, 09:58:31 am »Message ID: 1293373
What's your collection, how extensive is it, what does your family think?

I saw a minute of that collector show on Metv where some guy has every surface in the house covered with memorabilia and the wife is standing there saying a thousand words with just the look on her face...

Off-Topic / How do you fall asleep?
« on: September 13, 2019, 10:08:39 am »Message ID: 1292714
Those nights when you just won't fall asleep, what do you do? What do you take if anything helps?

Nobody say warm milk, because it's gross lol

Offers / Anybody ever notice the captchas...

On the daily cash email where you click the ad, you have to type the captcha correctly or it won't work. But on the paid to click captcha, you can type it wrong and it'll still go.

Off-Topic / Anticipation better than the thing
« on: August 25, 2019, 09:47:30 am »Message ID: 1289799
Are there times when you enjoy anticipating something even more than you enjoy the actual thing happening? The older I get, I think I'm that way with more and more things. Is it just me?

For example my favorite time of year has always been Halloween and autumn, and I start getting into it very early, and I think that "it's coming!" season of planning and excitement, and feeling the weather just barely starting to change, has actually come to far outweigh the actual day for me.

Off-Topic / What do you do for exercise?
« on: August 23, 2019, 11:07:18 am »Message ID: 1289585
I understand the gym works best for some people, but I've never had much patience for that kind of exercising. Just repeating some motion over and over with no context is mind numbing for me... personally I'm way more motivated if I'm doing some actual activity or accomplishing something.

Yard work is my go-to. In fact I just noticed I've gotten better muscle tone than I've ever tried to build on purpose, as a totally accidental side effect from some intensive outdoor projects this summer.

How do you get your exercise?

Off-Topic / ever taken care of wild baby birds /eggs?
« on: July 27, 2019, 11:17:25 am »Message ID: 1285723
I have helped a few stunned or dehydrated fledglings over the years, but this week I found the tiniest egg I've ever seen, 1cm long. I assumed it was probably no good but when I shine a flashlight under it I see somebody moving in there! I doubt I could take good enough care of a hatchling so I'm going to have to find a wildlife rehab if it gets that far. 

Have you ever taken care of a baby bird or egg that you found?

Offers / beware of survey about retailer ads
« on: July 20, 2019, 01:50:10 pm »Message ID: 1285034
Went through a very tedious survey about target, walmart, macys ads, on completion I was sent to an error page and got no credit  >:( Watch out

Off-Topic / What's the brag weather where you live
« on: July 19, 2019, 12:39:05 pm »Message ID: 1284934
What season or weather do folks brag about where you live? You know, the "You think THIS is hot/cold/stormy/humid? You should see how it is where I'M from!" weather?

We're in our brag season now in the desert.. lows in the 90s this week and it'll be an unusual year if we don't scrape 120 at some point. I know it's all relative but it's hard to keep my mouth shut when others complain how hot they are lol

Off-Topic / Area 51
« on: July 16, 2019, 11:44:11 am »Message ID: 1284493
What do you think will really happen with this stupid Storm Area 51 thing?

If you haven't heard, someone started an event on Facebook saying let's go to Nevada and storm Area 51 and see what's in there. Over a million users have said they're going. The whole event I'm assuming (hoping) is a joke and probably most of those people agreed as a joke but you know there will be a few who take it seriously.

I think it will amount to a few dozen morons standing around in the sun with their phones out waiting to film while absolutely nothing happens...

Off-Topic / What eyeliner do you use
« on: July 14, 2019, 05:02:49 pm »Message ID: 1284272
Ladies... or guys I guess if you're into that :P ... what brand eyeliner do you use?

I have used all the major brands and I find after a couple of hours my eyes just burn and sting. I don't know if it's a problem with my eyes or an ingredient in the makeup, but I would love to find one that doesn't do that. Are there any natural/gentle eyeliners anyone has experience with?
