I've been more than once. I wouldn't be the person who gets an annual pass but once every few years or whatever. Same as Vegas.

@Bronte I'm thinking you are getting to old to appreciate Florida...but that would be ironic. Maybe Florida appreciation is an inverse bell curve? It's fun when you are young, and great again when you are old. But harder to appreciate between the ages of like 35 and 65?



You might be right. But I could just be an old codger that just complains about everything and everyone at this point on life. =)

There comes a point where you've earned it. Just don't abuse the privilege.

Siesta Key has one of the greatest beaches in the world. Don’t like white beaches but you want to spend an afternoon looking for shark’s teeth? Head down to Venice beach and walk around. They are plentiful there. Take a 4 1/2 hour ride to the other side of the state and you can tour Cape Canaveral/NASA. Spend a few days in that area and check out the beaches around Cocoa Beach. Travel north and you’ll see Daytona Beach, and St Augustine. Check out the Castillo de San Marcos fort while you are in St Augustine. You’ll be amazed. On your return to Sarasota go north through Jacksonville then shift west and south. You’ll head over to a little town outside of Gainesville called Williston. Before you go make an appointment and book your SCUBA time at Devil’s Den. Enjoy the clear water in that spring. Then head back south and stop in Safety Harbor and talk to the locals about a certain dock at the end of a residential street where the manatee hang out. If you are lucky they will give you directions so you can go and look at them one evening. They pop right up there and take deep breaths before going back under the water. It used to drive my dog Bear nuts every time we went. If it’s the right time of the year head south to Fort Meyers or even further south to go tarpon fishing.

Yep, nothing but kids and old people can dig FLA. 🙄

why do we still use the QWERTY keyboard?

Will we move back to some of the other faster layouts?

we only use QWERTY because it slowed people down so the hammers wouldn't jam on typewriters!

It's a fair question. I think the most likely answer is that an A-Z keyboard would be difficult to transition to for those who have already learned to type on the QWERTY keyboard. They would be better off to not have learned to type at all.

Reminds me that when I met Eric Idle in my workplace, I pointed out that he was a hunt-and-pecker typist. He laughed and said, "what did you just call me?".

How many slabbed books do you own?

Due to an accident on backing up my photos I had to retake photos of every slabbed book I own.

My count after dumping over 50 to mcs is 390.

The transition effort/time and lost efficiency is a problem and so is the upgrade cost (laptops/desktops, anything with physical rather than virtual keyboards).

That said, a fast qwerty typist will be fast on any new format too.

On some instruments or across similar instruments there are different tunings. Guitar has several variations of semi-standard tunings. For example, a good guitarist can adapt to different chord shapes and other muscle-memory-relevant quirks. After a short time their base/general technique will matter more than the format-specific one.

My wife types a pretty rapid 140wpm and I a more pedestrian 100. My guess is she’d scale up to 170-200 on a more efficient layout and I’d scale up to where she already is. Neither of us could afford the drop in efficiency and error increase in the interim, however.

I think if a role is typing-heavy then it may make sense to go through a period of retraining. Or people can self-train and customize their own transition schedule.

Current count is 508, but that could change if I were to get back some long-awaited submissions...

You both have many more than I. I am sitting on 12 boxes. 25-30 in each box?
I haven't counted. Maybe 300-ish... 60 books in que with grade pre-screen of course, so maybe 10-15 could get rejected. 20+/- are going to my pal at MCS. He is persistent lol....

I have 18 boxes right now with about 25 ~ 30 in each box, plus an indeterminate number in various stages of grading. The number is constantly in flux, though, because I am selling.

Depends on who Susan was and what role she played at mealtime. Was Susan the server who got sick of walking around & around the table? Was Susan a spoiled kid who couldn't be bothered to figure out which way to pass serving dishes? Was Susan some uncultured barbarian with a boarding-house reach? Any or all or none of these could have been the inspiration for the Lazy Susan. I just know that my Grandma liked them, which is pretty much the only reason I even know what they are.

I'm probably going to figure this reference out in another 30 minutes or so.

IMO, the Captain Marvel movie gets a bad rap. Maybe it is because I knew nothing about the character before I saw the film. I had no expectations going in I found myself having a good time while watching it. It isn’t the best MCU film but it isn’t close to the worst one either.

Am I one of the few that actually enjoyed it?

I enjoyed it, but at the time it was one of the MCU's weakest offerings. That is no longer the case, especially because it was never a bad film to begin with. It just didn't break as much new ground as everything that came before it. But now we have Morbius and everything else looks pretty decent by comparison.

I've never understood the criticism of it. I enjoyed it, and it was a nicely crafted "prequel" piece to the MCU puzzle.

According to google...


What does it mean? If something tears up Jack it leaves destruction in its wake

Betty was

Betty Broderick a murderer

I'm not a 100percent on connection still though

Edit

Ok Betty was triggered by anger due to abuse. And them she killed her ex and his wife.
