We live in a universe filled with constant change. In the larger scope of things this means we are all going to die. Most deal with this larger issue by not thinking about it. Those that do often find comfort in a religious faith. I often feel like life is just trying to nail down as many things as...

I tap. Or jiggle a leg. If my lips are dry I love peeling bits of skin off with my teeth. If I'm beardy I bite the hairs around my mouth. I used to play with my hair a lot but most of it fell out so I shave the rest now - I leave a mm or two and that's always nice to run your fingers across. Most of...

If you have an old router from a previous isp you can sometimes rig these up as a wifi repeater or wireless access point. That's what I do to get wifi in my garden.

I use bash because I'm relatively new to linux and it seems to be default in the distros I've tried. TBH I was only dimly aware that there were alternatives (but of course there are, it's linux).

If it's true that Walt is cryogenically frozen, that question might be answered one day -' perhaps in your lifetime, but not mine. I'm too old! Disney was cremated days after dying from lung cancer, and his ashes are interred in Glendale, California.

Men who like white hair will be attracted to an idea they've constructed of you, because of your white hair.

Men who are attracted to you will like your white hair because its a part of you.

Not sure if you're stating a case with this or trying to prompt a debate. I looked at some of the links because nutrition is something I find really interesting, doubly so when it becomes confused by ideologies and moralising. I have no problem with vegans or vegetarians. Everyone has to make their ...

A friend I had once tried to set me up, I think. His girlfriend had a friend and they maybe thought she and I would hit it off. So we went out together and yeah, really didn't go well. I can't really function in bars and pubs (I hadn't worked this out at that age though) so I was almost mute, in com...

When I first entered the world of work I would tell people that I was allergic to alcohol so I didn't have to drink or really go out with work people. I just couldn't handle that stuff. Then I got into whiskeys and bourbons for a while - I liked them and they were interesting to me so I drank them a...

I would love to be able to dance. But no, I don't like to. Way too self conscious.

Shows like that are a product with a specific audience. They have to be because they're funded by advertising. So it becomes a simple calculation. Say you manufacture and sell spot cream. People over 30 are less likely to buy spot cream. So for the maximum return on your advertising spending, you wa...

I've never read or watched any Harry Potter, and I wouldn't want to. I saw a preview once and it showed kids playing football on broomsticks in the sky? It looked really fake. I hate special effects, and I don't do fantasy. The Harry Potter films are sadly, awful. I really hope they remake them one...

Duck- my son sometimes says really negative things about himself like that as well. He judges himself as being so different from other kids and then he always focuses on where he comes up short. It seems to help him if other kids notice something special about him and call attention to that. Like h...

I can't deal with anything where people get sexual pleasure out of torturing/mutilating other people. Not for me. I can do stupid, I can do crude. I like Gummo. I think that's a really interesting piece of cinema. I have no problem with people being artsy-fartsy or pretentious! I also don't watch su...
