Re: I just don't get it

What are the chances any of them read Steinbeck beyond what's assigned in school? And it's a heartstring-tugging marketing aid when you're sitting around with a cardboard sign at some intersection. That reminds me of a pretty good memoir I read called "Travels With Elizabeth" about a guy being home...

I'm thinking particularly of the people who spend $10,000+ on an Instagrammable hashtag-vanlife build. Maybe they're doing Oxy.

I stained the boards, let them dry, and then sanded them lightly to give the wood a "warn" look.

I don't get people who choose to move into a van-down-by-the-river with their dog(s). When it's hot or cold (especially hot) you either can never go anywhere WITHOUT the dog, or you have to invest in some incredibly complicated setup with an AC and a battery bank and a cell phone alert in case a cir...

Re: Calling 2020 for Entropy

That’s honestly the one thing I don’t worry about with Trump, simply because I’m 100% certain he’s going to be re-elected, and by a sizable percentage of the EC. Which states is he going to pick up he didn't get last time? Oregon, Colorado, maybe Minnesota. Minnesota is the only possibility, and th...

okay but I say all the time they should make dog parks for kids. What I mean is open spaces with room to run and a fence to keep monsters like mine contained. Swings and slides are fun but not as fun as waiting until I'm distracted and then running into the parking lot :? Anyway, those both look int...

This guy lives at the local Home Depot.

Despite his grouchy appearance, he has an excellent personality for a business cat, since he doe...

I need a morality / "is this a dick move" ruling, please. I'm planning to buy some insulation at Home Depot. They have a pretty sweet "bulk buy" discount where you get 30% off if you buy 15 or more packs. I know I will only need 7 packs. What if I buy 15 but return 8 of them a couple days later? (I ...

Re: I may want to see that?

The books are good? I always assumed they were some kind of Borne* knockoffs or the like. *Not that those were any good. The books are ... enjoyable, if that's what you're into. Jack Reacher is not an action hero, although he has been trained in ass-kicking; he's a weirdo who only owns a toothbrush...

Re: I may want to see that?

I'm a huge fan of the Jack Reacher novels, and I don't know if it's possible to really properly translate them to the screen because the most compelling part (for me) is being inside his head and seeing what he responds to and how. Like, he's not autistic, but it's a similar level of divergence from...

an analysis of the split between theology and practice and the minutia of consecrating communion wafers. Excuse YOU, I attend an Episcopal church in an upper-class neighborhood. We don't use WAFERS.

Re: Conspiracy and Kooky thinking

The theological underpinning is, first, that Zoom wasn't an option during the Last Supper and, second, as it is related in Matthew 18:20, Jesus said "For where two or more are gathered together in my name, I am there with them" or, you know, words to that effect. Anglican theology and thus the Book...

Re: Conspiracy and Kooky thinking

Yeah, I'm not totally clear on the theological underpinnings of why you can't consecrate bread and wine via Zoom (despite seeing many arguments amongst all the clergy I follow on Twitter about just that topic) but the Episcopal church is on the side of "communion has to be in-person or not at all" a...
