Gravitational waves have been detected.

What does that mean for practical application?

inconclusive, Wikipedia wasn't making any sense at all.

Edit: that's right, I'm naked. For science!!

I'd rather have something that's plain and functional than something with all the bells and whistles.

So when I went to get a phone, I got something with the bare minimum of phone stuff. It does its job, does it well, and doesn't have a bunch of excess things to deal with (or perhaps more accurately, they don't intrude to the point of interfering with the phone's main purposes).

Ditto with the Kindle. I got it to read books with; it does that and does it well, and doesn't need to do anything else.

I have a brother like this. He refuses to get a smart phone and only uses a phone that basically just makes calls. He still has an iPod too. My mother gets frustrated with him, but he just wants to use it for calls so that's all he gets.

Yay! It's been awhile, I'd like to thank whoever posted last, and my complete denial of winter.

Sir, your hat is on fire, and what in the name of Byelobog has happened to your eyebrows?!

They're Handlebrows, I'm bringing them back in style.

And if you have a better place to wear your candle, I'd like to hear it.

Looking at the Gamer Life subforums capsule looks like Hama and I are having a drunk conversation all over the place, Captain Yesterday bringing us booze, with Freehold skyping in now and then and Tacticslion hearting us all over the place.

I do that...

Yeah, I didn't even have a smartphone - and had no desire for one - until I moved into the new apartment and actually needed something that could make appointments, check internet, or order food ahead of time when I wasn't at home. Prior to moving out on my own, I just didn't need those things, so there was no sense in spending the extra money to get a phone that had them. The phone I had before could make calls just fine and had a slide-out keyboard for texting, and since those were all I needed a phone to do at that time, it was very sufficient for the three years I had it.

So many options, so little time...


Option paralysis is a real thing, that's why I started at the top, and stopped there.

When in denial, it's best not to over think it.

I drive everyone nuts.

I work for a multi-billion dollar software company after starting in tech working at a real-time software company. (Our software ran the Mars Pathfinder. Woo hoo!) I build all my own computers, maintain a Linux file share for my department, and am considered the "guru" of software installation, configuration, and integration by several departments.

Yet I own the free flip phone that came with my Verizon contract (a Samsung Gusto, I believe), won't do voice mail on it, and don't have it on my person most of the time. I am much like Orthos: I want a device that does one thing well, rather than dozens of things crappily. I was hard-pressed to hide my amusement when everyone's smart phones crapped out on our ski trip in Washington, and my phone just happily kept right on working. "NH, can I use your phone? Mine won't work here!" was music to my crotchety ears.

I have an ancient fax/scanner/laser printer next to me, and I wish I'd bought just a laser printer because I think it would have survived longer.

I love the feel and smell of books; there's nothing like curling up under thick covers on a cold winter night, reading a riveting hardcover that just smells right.

Pre-Paizo, I spent my money buying Easton Press' "100 Greatest Books Ever Written" series.

I love me some physical books. Especially the heft and the smell.
