Doesn't your PPO say you have to stay 500 yards away from any school, or has that expired?

I'm actually surprised by the amount of bitterness that has survived after all these years from that and the GT games. While nothing was/is certain, I remain convinced Jud would've won another title in his career.

This was an interesting read. Very poorly written and edited, but interesting. I also had no idea Yost was such a racist.

TIL former Spartan Craig Simpson has been married for five years to 2002 Canadian Olympic Figure Skating Pairs Gold Medalist Jamie Sale.
Also, that Simpson is 50 years old. That doesn't seem possible.

I don't know jack shit about babies, but my thought is that if they're more tired than hungry, let them sleep and feed them later. Maybe that's wrong and they die if you do that, I have no idea.

That is the point in tickling their feet, to keep them awake. Based on my readings, and posting on a baby board, a foot tickle is needed. We don't have all ducking day for the parasite to keep sucking on the tit. So you wake them up gently to keep sucking til their full. And then put them down to sleep.

Today, I learned to pay attention to paint samples, and the actual paint to buy.

I used my quart of paint to do the edges and corners for the nursery. I did this because I forgot to buy a small paint bucket to do that with. And I didn't feel like going to the store, so the quart worked fine.

Well after putting on the first coat of paint (which was a different type of paint than the sample), I realized that it didn't even look like the same color on the edges/corners, even though it was. Well fuck. It's still close. I'm hoping 1 coat around the edges/corners of the official paint will be sufficient enough.

Not to worry. The parasite's rods and cones won't even be fully developed by the time you want to repaint.

I just saw that yesterday. It must be making the rounds. I guess the dude suffered a fall just prior which is why one eye is swollen. But, he insisted on going on the show.
