Are you really surprised to find that out? Really?

That also means my collection of Apollonia 6 LPs isn't real, either. My life has no meaning.

Hey now! Being real and having meaning are two totally different things. I think the entire RPG hobby proves that.

A friend of mine is taking a Color Theory class, and she insisted that the color purple isn't real.

Why is this world!?

I'm pretty damn sure I saw the Color Purple with my own two eyeballs. I can imagine many things, but I'm pretty sure this ain't one of them.

Wait, is this like a Berenstein/Berenstain thing or like Sinbad being in a genie movie named Shazaam?

Mr. Robot possible spoiler:
Or did Whiterose finally get that time machine/parallel timeline thingie-ma-bob online on season 4 of Mr. Robot?

I'unno about purple, but magenta ain't a color.

Oooo, here's one that pisses me right the f!ck off: When someone (Dad) asks, "Why are you sweating?"

Really? It's a very humid, nearly 90F day in February, you won't run the f!cking air conditioner, and I've been standing in this kitchen for over an hour prepping and cooking dinner with two burners and an oven going, and you want to know why I'm sweating?! Really? And you ask at least a couple times a week, and it's always the same damn reason. You're not sweating because you just woke up from a nap or have been watching Youtube for the last hour, and you have the heat-loving metabolism of a gator or iguana. I'm tired, I'm sweaty, my back hurts, and I'm more than a little cranky; so pretty please, with sugar on top, clean the f!cking car stop asking me that.

It annoys me when people complain about it being nearly 90 degrees outside in February.

Do you know how many of you I would sell just for it to be that temperature in February (without having to set foot in Florida).

All of you.

I WILL find the gimpy shopping cart at a store.

"But Captain Yesterday, why don't you grab a different one!"

I tried that, turns out...

I WILL find EVERY gimpy shopping cart at a store, each one gimpier then the last.

Yes, I already admitted that I am annoying. You'll probably also find it annoying that I've never even seen or experienced snow in person.

I used to be fine in the Florida heat and humility humidity, but my internal thermometer-thingie changed when I hit my 30s. I probably just need to move up to a northern coast.

Have you considered that your superpower might be that you wonky-up the wheels of conveyances you touch? The good news is it sounds like you might be eligible to join the Great Lakes Avengers. Or cinematic Deadpool's X-Force. The bad news is wonky-wheeled-ness is a terrible superpower for which to be hunted by Sentinels, and I'd hate to see your life expectancy drop precipitously if you joined X-Force.

Wait.

Or did you mean gimpy cart as in gimpy? 'Cause that'd be a weird shopping cart to see being pushed around in the supermarket.

You don't need a coast, though in all honesty you'd probably fit in on the west coast (this is a good thing), I do just fine in the Midwest, I just want to chop rocks with a saw is all.

And warmth, I could really go for some warmth right about now. I've been working a lot lately, so that's why I sounded testy, I'm better now.

Still working though, more snow by morning, though a fairly manageable 2-5 inches, so should only be for 12-15 hours, depending on who they give me.

I think it's a drawback for my real super power, getting from place to place unaided by a GPS.

Apparently when I'm really tired after a long commute, I will still occasionally walk up to the front door, push the unlock button on the car keyfob, and then be confused when the apartment door does not unlock. It happened I did it again today. Which makes me wonder what possible accidents I may have obliviously caused on the drive home.

Man that's weird. I once accidentally stuck my car key in the apartment door lock and the entire apartment building started up. Drove it down I-55 and eventually just parked in the median.

(My sincerest apologies to Steven Wright.)

Getting up before sunrise. I love being outside before dawn when it's quiet and cool with only the occasional chirp of a night bird of distant traffic sounds. But as soon as the sky starts to brighten I get depressed and I have to get back inside to my darkened room.

Snow shovels made of plastic with metal screws. Lucky if you can make two weeks into winter without that junk breaking on you.

That wouldn't last one day for Cap. I'm pretty sure even Tiny T-Rex would look at that askance.

Please, America, stop that.

The key is to use a decent snowblower like a Toro 721 (the only snowblower I use) so you don't have to use a shovel for anything but stairs.

We use the same crappy plastic shovels as everyone else.

But it's such a reflection of cultural optimism!

I've got a 90's toro pup that wont die. I call it "little Mac". Though I live in the city and have an alley. My privacy fence makes for a difficult snow throwing situation in heavy snowfall years such as this. To keep my neighbor from getting pissed, I have to take heavy loads like this and shovel it aside and not onto their driveway/car.

My old lady bought that crappy plastic shovel because the one I have is "too heavy". That plastic one snapped right quick and I wont allow her to buy another. Looking for good old fashioned wood and steel but light weight.


The "moving the goalposts" fallacy. It's cheating, plain and simple.

Cheating!? Are you kidding me! You have to dig a hole, mix the concrete, move the f~$@ers, then let it set!

It's a lot harder than people make it out to be.

Moving the goalposts refers to changing the requirements needed to prove an argument true or false after they have been met. Example.


Ah. Thanks!

This is a more regional thing that bugs me...people who put an "r" sound into a word that doesn't have the letter r in it. Usually in words like "wash", which they will say as "warsh" or "worsh". Makes my eye twitch every time I hear it.

I grew up around older folks here in Arkansas who spoke using that very thing. Fortunately, I speak fluent Elderly and Redneck, so I can get through conversations fairly easily.

I grew up near St. Louis, and I still catch myself occasionally doing it despite my best efforts.

I grew up 2+ hours south of Chicago and I heard it all the time, but somehow avoided doing it myself.

My parents were civilized so we had to pronounce words correctly.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I began to train myself into a neutral accent in junior high school by paying attention to newscasters and DJs. When my school got it's own radio station when I was in the 11th grade I was prepared for it.

I lived a year in St. Louis and no one would believe I was from Arkansas because "I didn't talk like a hick". Also, I like sushi. Apparently, hicks don't.

It was even worse where I grew up in the South. After people "warshed" things, they "wrenched" them.


Ha! I'm from the South, too. I do remember old folks from when I was a kid saying that. Wow, if I dig deep enough into my memories I'm sure I could come up with a pretty decent lexicon of Southern pronunciations.

I'm annoyed by my phone showing me photos from a year ago.

It's normally fine, but in this particular instance I got a reminder that a year ago I accidentally kicked a friend into a pond.


4 people marked this as a favorite.

But drinking the pond water would be negligibly calorie-negative! Your friend should thank you for the healthy nudge. Some would even say you're a hero.


3 people marked this as a favorite.

Sometimes being a hero requires only you know you're right.

It's a burden I have to endure.

With great pond comes great responsibility.

I wonder since his friend fell into the water if he had to make an emergency call for a first re-pond-er.
