  1. I think they have a master key, now that you mention it. It opens the back panel and the "boxes" are probably numbered. They would have to be, really.
  2. https://www.jpl.nasa.gov/news/news.php?feature=7751 Maybe I'm just an old fogey of sorts, but the technology we have just amazes me. X-Rays on Mars. What's next? Human robots to do the building?
  3. https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2020/sep/08/robot-wrote-this-article-gpt-3 The article I linked is about 500 words long and was written entirely by artificial intelligence. They sat it took less time to edit that an article similar in length written by a human. The aliens are here friends........and WE made them. LOL
  4. Those boxes you described are still around, but not nearly as much as they used to be. You see them in the older neighborhoods or older towns that haven't grown much. In the bigger cities that are getting newer neighborhoods, there is a "bank" of mailboxes in one part of the neighborhood that services the entire neighborhood. 100 houses or so. Everyone has a key for their box as does the mailman.
  5. That is funny. Old technology disrupting new technology. Who would have thought? It kind of makes you wonder just how solid our new technology is.
  6. You heard that right. More men it seems are getting aroused by technology than ever before. Can we blame Covid for this? Or is technology just getting that good?
  7. Doesn't that send the wrong signal? People who read books aren't likely to click on that link. Pushing The Pen. Sound good? A Book A Day.........how about that one?
  8. The Travelling Wilburys. I don't know if super-groups like that count, but they meet the your qualifications. Other than them, I can't think of any either.
  9. I get the feeling that people are getting tired of the "Lesser of two evils" options they always have. I can't can't blame them either. We just don't get good candidates anymore.
  10. We hear people periodically complain about the privacy issue with Facebook. But don't you think there are quite a few people out there who use that venue to research business avenues so they can move up in whatever career field they are in?
  11. The outbreak isn't over, but neither is the WWE. People get sick. That's what we do. They will open back up soon even if it means putting only 1/3 or so of fans in the venues.
  12. You can always just edit what you have and make a novelette or short story out of it. It's your work of art, you can make it what you want.
  13. Back in 1999/2000 when the family of Owen Hart sued for, and won, a settlement totaling 18 million USD, did the ticket prices to events go up? I can't remember.
  14. People pay more of a ticket price to watch the men and the audiences are larger. Hence, the men can, and do, demand more pay. It's not so the much the leagues or the women who dictate the pay. Ultimately, it's fans.
  15. What happened to all her lids? Did evil jar gnomes take the lids as a prank? LOL They usually sell them as a set, which might give the impression they are out.
  16. The reviews that hooked me into wanting to watch it, are the ones that call it a dark comedy. I like those. The Superhero premise, in my opinion, is played out. So a twist like that makes it more watchable.
  17. Both knees were fractured when this professional power lifter attempted to squat 882 pounds. That's nearly a half ton for those of you keeping score. Story I hope he's able to get back to it eventually.
  18. I have to pay attention to my automobile today. That is a high priority. When I have something like that going on, I don't list other projects because I don't want to put a time stamp on a high priority.
  19. An outdoor theater could simply mean putting an 84 inch T.V. outside. Or in your garage while you put chairs in the driveway. Aside from the cost of an 84" screen, popcorn and soda, it wouldn't cost much.
  20. No, but I'll bet Chicago PD would be an action packed show if they filmed it on the south side. I've been to that city a few times. Red lights are just a suggestion in certain parts.
  21. Don't tell me, tell the jocks. Don't lump me in with those guys, I treat with women with respect. Nor should you have to. Your grandmother shouldn't have had to either. No. I was going for the "Acknowledging Reality" angle and got confused with someone who sticks up for rapists. You have to acknowledge that this is that culture within some sports environments. It has always been this way for football, so it baffles me that people are actually shocked by this. We all know it happens. Stating the obvious will not change it. Raising boys to be respectful and to stay away from boys who aren't is how we change it.
  22. No. I'm simply saying that because they are jocks, people should expect it. It's the culture. I am acknowledging the reality of it. I am not condoning it. There is a difference.
  23. Meaning he got his citizenship, not that he.......changed.....or anything. :D I say good for him. He looks happy. I just have to wonder if he's going to retire though.
  24. Sorry, I just saw this after I was talking elsewhere here about this. Yeah, I heard and I just think they need to stop trying to do this. Wait for a vaccine. It shouldn't take that much longer.
  25. Heard the news that 11 Marlins players and 4 staff members tested positive for the Covid. If that's any indication, the season won't go well. Just wait till next year guys, really. This is just sad.
