Current Non-Annoyance

Why bother with any other forum?
Forum rules
We once roamed the vast forums of Corona Coming Attractions. Some of us had been around from The Before Times, in the Days of Excelsior, while others of us had only recently begun our trek. When our home became filled with much evil, including the villainous Cannot-Post-in-This-Browser and the dreaded Cannot-Log-In, we flounced away most huffily to this new home away from home. We follow the flag of Jubboiter and talk about movies, life, the universe, and everything, often in a most vulgar fashion. All are welcome here, so long as they do not take offense to our particular idiom.

What is a Duotang? Is it a breed of manatee?

It's slang for "orangutan sex."

It's a fancy word for "report cover. So of course I couldn't think of the phrase "report cover" when I went to Staples. Luckily the helpful Staples employee knew what I meant, although he said it gave him flashbacks to Catholic school.

Glad to finally watch this.

The weird weather patterns of Dallas, Texas. Storming downtown, 45 minute/13 mile train ride and it's sunny and dry. Which is good cause my car was parked at the train station with no top and the windows down.

More than half of the people who have them have the same question.

It's what companies have now so they don't have to do pensions. Employees putting in a percentage of their choice from their check into essentially a stocks account.

Right, yup. Same as a UK pension now. Pay into a fund throughout working life then cash in for an annuity on retirement. I worry I don't save enough.

You're getting up there a bit in years, mate. Might be time to scale back to only 10 or 11 tropical island vacations per year and start thinking about the future.

I just realized all the Star Trek series are on Netflix.

So much for my mid-year resolution to get a life.

You know, F1 has always appealed to me more than NASCAR ever did. I just can't see the attraction to 400 left turns, separated by the occasional disaster and yellow flag. Tracks that accommodate 80 to 100 thousand people just boggles me. I guess this should be in the "teach Dalty American" thread. Why is NASCAR so popular? The chance of accident is just as likely in F1, so the potential for horrific specticle is there. It vexes me. I am vexed.
