“Everything old is new again. There's nothing new under the sun. I'm pushing 60. DMT was a popular "recreational intoxicant" when I was in my teens. I wouldn't say it's any more powerful than well made acid, but it's full effect does come on a whole lot quicker than acid and it goes away a whole lot quicker. They used to call it a businessman's trip, or a business trip, 'cause the whole thing comes and goes in less than an hour. Businessmen could do it on their lunch break then return to work sober from it.”
Let me refer everyone to the last sentence in the comment from "anneisanne".
"The only trend here is that kids have discovered their hormones and need adults to teach them how to reign it in."”
“Just goes to show that dogs, much like humans, more often than not tend to be a product of their environment. Got the dog off the chain, out of the scrap yard, into a nurturing environment, and it changed it's ways. Got it a new animal friend and as "they" say, the rest is history.”
“Big deal. Back in the 70s when the country was flooded with top quality, reasonably priced coke I was doing it several times a day for a couple years. At a certain point I got fed up with what that kind of lifestyle was doing to my life and stopped doing it.”
“Oh-o-o-o-o-o, Heidi, stay afraid. The expressions "if it ain't broke don't fix it", and, "don't mess with perfection" come to mind. Just keep doing whatever it is you've been doing and you should continue to look absolutely fine for a few more decades.”
“No. I've been around a while and I know full well that corporations, companies, employers don't promote everyone who deserves it. Because of what I've seen over 50 or so years I'm presuming that the majority of these people are demanding something for nothing.”

“nothing? how is working 40 hours now considered 'nothing'??? you are correct that 'the foundation of the idiocracy is already being laid' ... into your head”

Well, if they aren't doing anything while they're at work and they haven't been fired for that doesn't that show the inefficiency of the corporation itself and prove that they aren't running the business in a manner in which they could better afford to pay their better workers a higher minimum wage to match the ever increasing cost of living in America?”
“"They're demanding an improvement in the wage those entry level positions pay to begin with..."
Right. Rather than improve their skill and knowledge level so they can move up and out of their entry level positions, just stay in entry level positions and demand an improvement in the wages. I guess I'm just old fashioned 'cause I believe that you do what you can to earn more, you don't demand that it just be given to you.”

“You're presuming that these corporations promote everyone who deserves it. That is completely false.
These people work and work hard to earn what little their employers reluctantly pay them. Nobody is demanding anything for free.”
“Don't go demanding more when you're in an entry level position and you're not doing anything to make yourself more valuable to your employer.”

“They aren't. They're demanding an improvement in the wage those entry level positions pay to begin with, because their employers and businesses like them increased the prices of their merchandise to the point where it's increased the cost of living for the entire nation.”

“Walk off your job, your FIRED. Have legitimate skills, you quietly apply for other jobs and slowly advance yourself. What part of this did these people miss?”

“And of course their employer has done nothing to make themselves worth working for.”
“"This Photo Of The Original Ronald McDonald Will Give You Nightmares"
Why? It just looks like a clown with advertising as part of his clown suit. I remember that Ronald McDonald as a kid.
Around that same time Willard Scott was also playing Bozo the Clown for a live show on local D.C. station WTTG channel 5.”

“In telling us the success story of Isabella Weems and Origami Owl, why in the world did the writer feel the need to include this, the 11thparagraph, "(Christian
“Chrissy” Weems, has a touch of notoriety to her past: in 2011 she pleaded guilty to computer tampering for hiding evidence in the case of Susan Brock, an Arizona woman convicted of three counts of sexual conduct with a minor who Chrissy Weems had then mistakenly felt was innocent of the charges, a spokesperson for Origami Owl confirmed. She was sentenced to one year of supervised probation)."?
What, exactly, does any of that have to do with this story?”
“The slide show shows that using a microwave will disable the RFID chip that's in some(all?) credit cards. Since microwaves are electro-magnetic radiation wouldn't that also screw up the magnetic stripe on the back of the card?”

“depends how long you zap it and the tolerance of the technology. The ink is magnetic (MICR) not an Integrated Chip. Perhaps the ink is more robust since it's less dense?
at any rate until the banks are shown that RFID is the wrong technology for cards it won't stop”
“My cat knew her name and would come to me if I'd call out for her. She learned what sit meant and would usually sit if I told her to. She also learned what "settle down" meant. She'd be sitting on me and shifting around every couple minutes or less. I'd say settle down and she'd stop all of her shifting around. Also, she'd start purring just from my talking to her, without any touching or petting. Don't tell me cats don't know or care what their humans are saying.”
