Re: Ridiculous Things You Read On Facebook

When my sister-in-law is around, I like to surreptitiously get on her laptop and click ads and websites for embarrassing products, so she gets to see lots of those ads in the future.

Re: Trump Admin Meltdown Thread Part V - All Hail King Donald, First of his name

I've never had a three day hangover but that's the plan. We should all agree to do a Swamp meetup that weekend in New Orleans or someplace like that and just spend an entire 72 hours drunk, eating good food and cheering Trump's death at every bar in town. I am so down with this idea. It would be a ...

Re: The Important Sounds of Things Falling Apart

This part of the movie never made sense to me. Reg started the rumors of the sale to Florida, but he's asking the owner about the progress of the sale?
He just doesn’t want her to know that he started the rumors. He is also hoping he kick started some sale interest.
