    Of course chances are we'll have another pandemic in a few years and I probably will have kids by then.

    Man this is so stupid.

    They're not shorts shorts, they're just spandex shorts. You see the same thing in Track and Field where there are some runners who will wear the bottoms that are closer to the bikini cut, and others will wear the spandex shorts.

    There's really 0 difference and it's all about what people are most comfortable with. Seems like a stupid law, glad the Norway Federation is standing with their players and covering the fine.

    Man this is absolutely insane.

    If something isn't done (and honestly I have no idea what can even be done) this is going to get so much worse. State to State inequality is going to get so much worse as people see policies like this being enacted and decide not to move there (or moving out after they pass.)

    I'm just chiming in with my one complaint.

    If you're going to go with the QR Code menu, you should also have wifi that is accessible. Even if you password protect it with the password under the QR code.

    Otherwise, I don't really care which is used.

    Ahhh, I didn't realize it was only in-competition. Either way, as stupid as a rule it is, it's still a rule. I hate the email client I have to use for work, but it's what we do, so I have to use it.

    I don't give a fuck that she smoked weed and I think it's incredibly stupid that this means she'll probably miss the Olympics BUT (and this is a big but) I believe one of the reasons they still enforce it so much is that THC can be used as a masking agent for other PEDs. I'm not saying that's the case, but I do think it's one of the reasons WADA haven't totally tossed it from their list yet.

    Ohhh, whereaboutsish in Maine?

    I grew up in the midcoast area. Any time I go home to visit in the summer I sort of hate it because it's hot but no one has AC and I can't spend all day in the ocean, so it's actually worse than summer down south.

    I do miss the snow though...

    I live in the South but am originally from the north.

    I have our HVAC system serviced every Spring and had a guy out here in May telling me the system might be okay, but also might fail on us.

    Ended up just going with the full replacement because I knew the system was at least 14 years old and the last think you want is it crapping out on the hottest day of the year.

    As much as the initial payment hurt, I'm pretty happy having done it and not having to stress all summer about it going on me at some point.

    We will have a lot of users who we ban for comments that they will then go back and delete and then try to say "What racist comments, I never said anything wrong, ever."

    This is a terrible decision for all the comments in the OP. I moderate a pretty big sub and every day I get closer and closer to just saying fuck it an leaving them to die a painful death alone.

    I've recently thought it might be interesting to get in to Android Programming but I feel like every guide I've been looking at makes it seem pretty complicated to do even some of the most basic stuff.

    Is that true/standard, or does it just look that way to a total beginner?

    I think that's why @Augustusferdinand suggested there would be a default "average mileage" fee and then you could bring it in to a shop to get some sort of certification done to prove that you drove less than the average mileage and therefore should pay less.
