    In lighter news, lately, the whines have been piling up:

    1. I pull up to one of those Hippie Grocery stores, the "green" stuff where everything is organic and rots in two days because of no preservatives. I never could figure that out. Mankind spends its entire history, tens of thousands of years, to figure out how to preserve food and now they take the preservatives out and charge you more money. This is insane. And its rots quick. Anyway, I see the huge, full sized SUV in the access lane between two handicap spots. I walk through and its definitely the access lane, some lady just sitting there in from of the sign that says

    NO PARKING

    Obviously, it was more important for her to be right next to the door the law meant nothing and no, she had no handicapped plate either.

    The entitled attitude is getting out of hand

    2. Go into the "organic store". Find nothing but "hand raised", range free, no hormone, bottle fed, hand picked, humanely killed chicken. Picked up a package and the raw juices slop out the whatever was holding the package together (it can't be plastic cause plastic = bad ) all over my hands. Now sticky and all raw chicken has salmonella. Totally Pizzed, I turn to the employees who just have a dazed look like spaced out from the lack of preservatives doing nothing. I have to find some wipes far away.

    Now I'm furious. Not sure why I stopped there other than it was convenient. Not going to happen again.

    3. Head home, driving behind someone, window down, smoking. Who smokes? Did they get the memo? The one thing I've learned from watching Live PD is 90% of the people they stop continue smoking while the cuffs go on. The driver casually flips the lit butt out the window like its 1964. Oh yeah, no rain for a week either. All is hot and dry.

    Nice

    4. There are four lanes, two turn left at a light and clearly say left turn only. The other two go straight. Car in the far left lane, at the light, decides he is NOT going to turn left but wants to turn right. So he CUTS ACROSS THREE LANES OF traffic to go right

    OMG. I thought I saw a lot of lame moves but this was one of the best.

    5. In the far right lane to turn right. SUV decides to cut in front of me. Bravo. Puts on his blinkers and make his move. OK. Gets to the light. Makes the right turn, no blinkers Just takes a right without any indication of movement.

    If there is another thing I've learned from Live PD is that the LEOs stop people for small things: No turn signals. Rolling through stop lights and then get nailed for drugs in the car, outstanding arrest warrants, etc. Then they run, which is always fun because everyone knows you can't outrun the radio. The best ones run HOME, literally home as if going home mean they wont get arrested for felony evading police. Like look! I'm home. You can't come here.

    Use your signals.

    6. Which brings me back to Live PD. TV is just crap, total garbage taken over by weird nonsense. I dropped Netflix a year ago because it raised it prices too often and it too was taken over by the liberal nonsense that everything has to contain PC everything in every episode rather than just representing whatever. I do have Amazon Prime video simply because I have Amazon. I'm running out of Big Foot Movies to watch. How many Big Foot are out there? Although six seasons of Justified wa pretty good.

    And so I'm left with Live PD, which at least has cars in it and people getting busted for driving 100 MPH. They get pulled over. LEO asks why your driving so fast and the answer is ... well cause? Take the DUI test, get busted for DUI. Repeat. Or ... roll through a stop sign, get pulled over, dog comes over sniffs the car. Bye Bye as they go to jail for drugs. If they only followed the rules of the road they wouldn't be on TV.

    You made me laugh, I thought I was the only one that was bugged by these things!

    I was going to complain that you shouldn't be giving these people tips on how to evade the law but then I remembered, they already know it all so will never read your post anyway!

    Re: Whine for the Day

    This isn't really a whine, just a comment on one of the big mysteries of the universe. How on earth does my washing machine manage to consistently turn my shirts inside out? I even leave the buttons done up most of the time, but no problem for this machine. Makes no sense. I suppose I should try turning them inside out before washing them to see what happens.

    I just wish more appliances could dependably do what they are supposed to do as opposed to this type of sideshow.

    Re: Whine for the Day

    WOTD: It is NOT my fault

    I just saw an appalling bumper sticker (yes, again). On a Dodge Journey minivan-but-not-really-minivan-you-know?, it said something like "I have three children. If you park too close, they will ding your $hit!"

    Of course, teaching your children respect for other people's property is completely, utterly out of question. Right?

    I park even my grocery-getter (let alone the Cayman) away from anything that might hold children here. Point is, I don't have to do that in EU where parking spaces NEVER allow adjacent car to completely open their doors - whatever the car/vehicle. I still have to see a door ding there. It's all about education/civility. That the person flaunts their incivility for all to see is, IMO, something to be worried about.

    100% agree with you, but not surprising at all IMHO there is a real swing to that side of responsibility, or lack there of! So many parents refuse to teach their children even the most basic of manners or respect, and in the case you mention feel that the rest of us should simply tolerate their (sometimes) willfull disregard for other peoples property or space... just like on public transport, bus, plane or whatever, dang kid kicking the seat back and you are supposed take it!!!

    You guys are describing my observation of how Millenials, generally speaking, are acting as parents and as adults. Who is to blame? Maybe their parents. What were they taught? Its all about me me me. My anecdotal experience for the last decade is generally a total disrespect for established societal norms. Not everyone, but many. Its the old saying of "Where'd you grow up, in a barn?"

    1. They do not say Please, thank you, or your welcome. Politeness is gone. Its been replaced by expectation of either being handed something for free or bypassing the norms of how to obtain material things. For example, they don’t want to work their way up the food chain. No, they want the expensive vacations, upgraded home amenities, and expensive cars – NOW. The inevitable result is disgruntlement when they find out life doesn’t work that way, they can’t afford the expensive material goods, and then they figure out they can never quit, never retire and will be working when they are 70 years old, well maybe 72 because the retirement age has to go up for social security to be viable.

    And they can't do math in their heads or make change. The look on the faces on clerks getting change and trying to figure out how much they got or have to give out is priceless, like the never saw change before. If you need to see a YouTube video to figure out how to use a Ruler and Philips Head screwdriver, maybe you should have took shop in HS.

    2. The kids are coddled and have no idea how to function on their own, maybe the parents as well. They didn’t go play all day by themselves.

    When I was a kid, in the Fall, we’d go play touch football, in the street. Inevitably, someone would fall and get some road rash. It was a badge to have skinned knees. You were playing hard. When your seven years old, maybe cry for two seconds, go home, get a band aid and some Mercurochome, and go right back out and play. Yes, THAT mercurochome, the kind with mercury in it. If that was today, I bet the parent would have the kid taken away by child protective services and the adult charged with child endangerment or some politically correct phrase. One of the best descriptions I’ve read of this is this tweet from a young reporter. Its the same idea. Some fathers playing football at the beach with their kids and the lifeguard ordering them to stop because “someone might get hurt”. Ever try to run and play football on the beach? It ain’t easy running You fall and you’re probably good. Its not the same as tripping on the asphalt where you know road rash is coming. I give a lot of credit to those who play beach volleyball. The response was excellent. Now maybe the lifeguard was just doing his job and the beach policy or local ordinances were such that playing sports on the beach was not permitted. But the concept is the same. Bunch of ******. It used to be broken glass was common on beaches. Anyone see any broken glass on beaches anymore? Can you imagine if people today saw broken beer bottles on the beach and cut up their feet, something also that used to be common.

    3. Foul language, swearing, something I whined about in the past, is everywhere. Problem is, if its not a shock but expected, all shock value is lost. IMO, just lame. Maybe teach some respect and know when to, and when not to, talk like your on the street? When in Rome, etc etc etc. Its not societal norm to talk in the same way to everyone. Know your audience.

    LOL, on our street the City had planted trees about 8 feet from the road on each lawn. Instead of the curbs, we used the treeline as the boundary of the playing surface. A favourite tactic was a down, out and down where you lured the defender into the curb.

    100% agree with all that has been said!!! Most likely growing up with a screen/laptop/phone whatever device that was not even an idea in someones head other than the startrek tricorder ! The constant nanny was technology and so there was no need for social skills! They all depend on thier “likes” on facebook! Twitter etc... you see them out to dinner or anywhere even in groups and they are nose deep in their phones! Conversation about a good book or whatever is out the window. As great as Technology is it has stunted a whole generation! The worst part is they dont even know that they are being used by the bots that track and sell them the array of goods and information they think of as goods and information they discovered. My Mom always states she wishes it could just all go away, solar flare and the electromagnetism fries every electronic device! Those of us who were raised without them wont have any issues but this generation would be completely lost! I don’t know if they would be able to fit into a society that does not have the ability to scan information and enter a quick text and then move on to the next frivolous item of information. Dont let me get started on the 24 hour talking heads that feed us the same stories till the next one is hatched. We had maybe 12 channels on the tv growing up and about four were almost unwatchable without an antenna on top of the roof that swiveled from the electric knob my dad installed. We got our info and moved on maybe watching Mash or Carol Burnett! Point is there weren't 500 channels with nothing to watch, you enjoyed what you did watch! You didn't have to pay a bill that grows every year, you had family time together because most people had one tv ehh i could go on and on but it certainly has come a long way from where we were and hopefully we will find a way back to basic human behavior! Respect, humility, decency because if not we are in for scarier times than they already are.

    Devious that. We had telephone poles so many feet apart. Used them as the goal lines. Curbs were real and went up to asphalt sidewalks. You fell, you knew it. I forgot to mention the sprained ankles. Those happened too. And then some kid's father would put a basketball backboard and hoop up on the telephone pole, which was on the sidewalk. Had to make sure it was under a street light so you could play in the dark. So if you drove to the basket, you had to watch the curbs LOL.

    Today, I can't remember seeing a backboard on a telephone pole since I don't know when. Utility company would probably have a fit. Home Owners association have a fit. And parents would have to watch their kids play at a local park, under supervision,

    Its no wonder some young people never learned what you can, and cannot say, in public to others. They never learned the rules of the street because Mommy and Daddy are always around.

    Re: Whine for the Day

    Guys, just a tad of perspective to add ...

    I'm pretty sure that Leonidas had a well in which to throw the children of Sparta who, instead of slicing the throat of the equally-aged child from Athens, offered nice rounded stones to play together. All under guise "This will be the end of Sparta if we let THIS $hit go on!". Which even might have been the truth, but still ...

    2000 years forward, I am pretty sure there are those of you posting that were through the routine of "All of this hips-gyrating negro-music thing is Devil's work, our society is going to hell in a handbasket if we let our kids do that!" from your parents. Not to say that THAT didn't end our civilization, mind!

    All of that said, neither of the precedents had a huge problem we have now ... disintegration of society not as a model, but as a connection-wired network. As always, our DNA cannot adapt fast enough as our rational-software level forces changes. Let me give you an example and you can sue me for all I care. There is no such thing as "driving talent". Reason for that is simple : Merriam-Webster defines it, among other things, as " the natural endowments of a person." That, to me, reads as : DNA written, born with. If that is the case, then show me, please, fossil remains of Porsches and BMWs from 250,000 - 1,000,000 years ago in African savanna when our DNA was coded. If there are none, there is no such thing as "driving talent". QED. So, we developed a skill on our rational software level to go stupid fast around racetrack and learned how to ignore brain's screams and, with that, affect suprarenal glands to chill the f#$%ck out and loose adrenalin overload which is literally killing you on the track if you don't know how to manage it. (Contrary to popular belief, we are NOT "adrenaline junkies" - any junkie on the track dependent on adrenaline drug has a very short life expectancy). But I digress.

    So, all those heart-warming stories from the 60s-80s are not going to help us when we know we lost the most important part of being human - social animal. The amount of ill-being that being isolated triggers when still fully functioning physically is not to be understated. If you want to eliminate or at least heavily limit bursts of lethal frustration (mass killings by losers), you need to let your kids get their teeth kicked out and their knees scraped. None of that ain't gonna happen on Instagram et al. Ban the f$%#^ck out of them. Friendly advice.

    Mostly agree. Thats the bit about the ***** Of America. Can't play football at the beach and "some young people never learned what you can, and cannot say, in public to others. They never learned the rules of the street because Mommy and Daddy are always around." Instead of playing some video game, they need to go interact, in person, and figure out the hardware what is, and is not, proper etiquette in Rome. I always liked his commercial.



    And the fact the are coddled leads to a generation of people who don't know how anything works. They don't know how the government works, they don't know how laws are made, an they have no idea how to fix anything. They made all the kids take Shop, first woodworking, then metal shop. Today. SO I read this MEN DON’T KNOW HOW TO FIX OR BUILD ANYTHING ANYMORE: AN INVESTIGATION IMO, a bunch of nonsense description about "alpha males" and gender role discussion. There's nothing special about fixing something. A basic set of skills is fundamental to exist. Its not like you need to rebuild an engine but hanging a picture might be a good idea or changing oil. And that article led to this: Real Men Change Their Own Oil! (Masculinity and Opportunity Cost)

    I read that to be a rationalization of why NOT to change oil because of Opportunity Cost? Seriously. Sure, if you make $100/hour and instead of making that $100 you could have spent $30 to take the car to Jiffy Lube, AND you would have been working that hour you changed the oil, then your better off taking it to Jiffy lube. But you HAVE TO BE WORKING that hour.

    People rationalize anything. Sorry Officer, I had a bad childhood, can't read the speed limit sign, and I have PSTD from playing video games. Besides, when I crash the car in the video game I get another life and restart. I need to restarts. Please let me go.

    WOTD - Know one knows how anything works anymore

    Very strange. I'm in a parking lot and a young guy is helping a young lady with her car. The hood is open, liquid is on the ground under the engine. My guess its antifreeze. I guess they are in their 20s. Guy has some antifreeze, one of those gallon bottles and is splashing the liquid on the engine. No, not into the radiator or overflow for the radiator but literally spashing the liquid over the top of the engine. Now maybe he had water in the bottle and not antifreeze. I don't know but spashing cold liquid on hot metal parts or over electronics under the hood can't be good. WTH?

How many speculators? Where exactly? Who are they buying the land from? Is the land already developed?





    Its REAL!!!!!

    By now every news outlet should be talking about the US is going to buy Greenland! FINALLY Investment in a giant ICECUBE?

    Think of the hotels. Think of the vacation cruises. Get that ice cube melting, exploit the minerals underneath. Ship some giant ice cubes to the desert for fresh water. American ingenuity can think of a million thing to do with Greenland. This is Amazing.

    Or, could it be the oil underneath? They say there is a ton of oil off shore!!!

    Or, could it be, the rare earths? HUGE rare earths found.

    Or, could it be to stop Russia claims on the Artic?

    Or, could it be a rabbit (Here you go press, go chase it)?

    Or, could it be good old fashioned Manifest Destiny? Technically, Greenland is part of North America. Maybe its time to get the European colonists out of North America? Why does Denmark own part of North America?

    Just kidding. I'm going with rabbit.

    How hard can it be, this fixing an engine thing, it looks thirsty, lets give it a drink, maybe it will soak in somewhere?
