    The Running Thread

    Easily less than that magic hour of running.

    But not all at once!

    It's only a few short runs!

    Nah, the weakest ones are still in the cave. They just went with the weaker ones first.

    Reports were the healthiest were taken out first.

    It's the absolute darkness in caves that really creeps me out. There's no waiting for your eyes to adjust, because there's no light.

    Movie thread

    It was enjoyable. Much more Guardians of the Galaxy than other like other Marvel movies. We were trying to watch the list of movies to see before Infinity War and we made it through Thor Ragnarok, Black Panther, GotG 2, and we were trying to watch Captain America Civil War, but we all fell asleep. Now we've instead found an 18 minute YouTube video that fills in everything we need to know. There's a point where Thor gets his haircut and my kid points out that the deacon at our church looks like Thor.

    Movie thread

    I used to like Ben Stiller, but I feel like he's gone the Adam Sandler route, where it's the same damn movie over and over. Only Ben Stiller doesn't have a Spanglish in his repertoire that saves him. I finally saw Thor Ragnarok. Am I still within the statute of limitations to talk about this one?

    They've started to really talk about the lack of oxygen. The article I read said that the deceased diver was a retired SEAL who was volunteering his time. He was placing oxygen in places where there may be stretches too long for one tank. Count me in on never doing anything like this, because tight spaces creep me out, as does being underwater. I can snorkel, but I first have to get over the screaming in my head about putting my face in the water. I can't imagine trying to take a kid who's never swam through this ordeal- seems like they'd be a very large hazard to the trained dive team.

    Is this because your duplicate thread got shut down?
  11. I am always looking for hot mechanic chicks, but didn't realize I needed to change careers to do so.

    Happy Birthday CSB!!

    Thanks, everyone! I had to go to a work conference on my birthday, but who doesn't want to party with engineers?
  13. We just hired a EE at $3700 gross a month. He lives with his parents and rightly so, because there's no way to get ahead in the rental market here. It's easily $700-$1000 a month for a decent place (I know, I know...in SF/NYC/wherever that's cheap) and that's 50% of take home. Living at home will give him a chance to get up. As far as we can tell, he's not an asshole to his parents.

    You could probably also bolt some uprights on it to prevent it from shifting.
  16. Damn if he doesn't look like he'd debate if an airplane on a treadmill would take off and the merits of the the new Solo movie.... I like that he considers himself a conservative. Um, you're still living off the system...just the system answers to mom and dad. PLUS! Plus, don't say you don't want to reconcile with your parents on national television when you have to go back there tonight. Good gosh. I'm going to yell at my kid tonight just to keep him honest.

    BOB trailer for sure. You could also definitely get such a beast on a regular rack. I used to being a suitcase to work on my bike. I've carried other bikes on my bike, so a French horn should fit. Buy a shit ton of bungies. Don't you have an Eagle Scout that could fashion a platform?
  18. Italy is the country I bring up the most when people talk about kids living at home. They are true mutligenerational homes and the culture is set up for it. Grandparents care for grandkids while the parents are at work. It makes sense. My grandmother lived with us. This guy comes off so horribly that it almost seems fake. I like that he wants 30 days to move out, like he's got a lease. I also like that he took the $1000 he was supposed to use to move out to buy things.
  19. No. The case is fascinating. I've shared it in two flavors- Vice and NPR. That should cover most of the preferences around here. https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/7xm8x9/parents-sue-adult-son-30-who-wont-move-out-vgtrn https://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2018/05/23/613616315/judge-backs-n-y-parents-saying-their-30-year-old-son-must-move-out I found it alarming that he has a kid that he's trying to custody of and that he doesn't want to get a job, because then he can't get free court costs. This guy is twisted.

    Selling items

    You have to set up an Amazon seller account. You can then list the items as used under the main listing. If I recall, it was handled via ISBN to make sure it was the same book. Amazon gives you a little money to ship. It was pretty easy. Here, I googled it for you: https://sellercentral.amazon.com/ But I think I also used PayPal here. That was before Craigslist was big and you weren't supposed to give strangers your PayPal info because then they could find you and stalk you and kill you or whatever.
