  1. Woke up and looked at the clock.  It said 7:01.  Looked at it again and it said 7:38.  The 37 minutes felt like 5.

      I usually set the alarm to 2 hours before I need to get up. That way I can snooze for longer, and it feels like I'm on vacation when I finally get up.

      I swear, every morning, I roll over barely awake and notice Wife asleep, then toss and turn for a second, and all of a sudden she's gone...

      I think she's a witch.

      A few days ago, I was so sleepy so I went to take a nap. This was at 10 a.m. I intended to sleep for a couple hours and then wake up. I woke up... at 3 p.m.

      TV isn't connected to anything either.  She just had her cell phone in her pocket.  I'd love to know just how much "always on microphone" snooping is really being done.

      In my Sammysung TV my panel identified as CHINA HD screen in the diagnostics, the thing kept trying to make network connections to who knows where and kept choosing it's own input and volume at power on... I went online and located the service menu sequence and put in the panel type off the sticker found internally stuck the back of the actual screen/ panel.

      saved and powered off and back on... No more unexpected network traffic and non responsive or sluggish remote control response. It's working perfectly now. WTF!

      Thought these were made in Korea.. guess not.

  4. Only 6 months until Christmas.  I'm hoping for an early present: a vaccine/cure for coronavirus.

    1. carlsson


      I read they will start testing soon in the UK. One witty poster suggested it will coincide with the reopening of pubs, them serving a different kind of "shots" that normally. :-D

      Don't worry. I bet Bill Gates has a nice juicy one waiting for you.

  5. I forget how long ago there were 4,444,444 posts (a couple of months?) but now there are over 100,000 more posts.  Amazing.

    2. retrorussell


      I found that movie to be pretty stupid.  But his reaction over kissing a tranny was pretty hilarious.

    3. jetset


      It was extremely stupid! That's what made it hysterical!

  7. Happy birthday agb.

  10. There was lots of toilet paper and paper towels today at the Walmart.  However there wasn't any Softsoap or generic refills.

    1. Random Terrain

      Random Terrain

      There was toilet paper AND the Walmart wasn't burned to the ground? The times they are a-changin'.

    2. Keatah


      For some reason I read that as "genetic refills"..

  11. I don't know why I am waking up with anxiety.  It was worse yesterday until I lifted weights and did some yard work.

    1. kiansurfs


      I'm sorry Atarian7, it's hard being told to stay in this long (if not for atari) when the world and the US seem in such upheaval.

  12. Contact tracing - How could they possibly know whether or not you have had contact with an infected person??  Are they omnipresent?

      An unknowingly infected person rides subway train, then when the infected person realizes he is infected, he must use a time machine to go back and ask everyone on the subway platforms and train to write down their names, addresses, and phone numbers. :D

      John Stamos Mullet

      No, that's not how it works. They're only asking for contact info of people you know personally, whom you've had extended close personal interaction with.

    4. GoldLeader


      Now...Say you go around licking people's elbows, or getting excitedly into tickle fights with strangers, or playing thumb wars in front of 10,000 people, (maybe more)...Next thing ya know,  say you develop some symptoms...Now it's probably just allergies from putting guinea pigs up to your eyes even though you know you're allergic, or a cold from rubbing up against your hot female cousin while she strummed your banjo the other night at the hoedown...On second thought, You know, whatever I was saying,  I think I'll stop here;   Wouldn't want this to get silly...

  13. The batteries in my mouse died.  Personally I think cordless keyboards and mouses suck.  Why would I want to pay for and change batteries.

      Yeah, but ya got that little thing hanging out.  Also,   there's a cord coming from your mouse Hey O!  




      I crack myself up!

    3. Turbo-Torch


      I finally got a decent mouse on Amazon for about $14 (Inphic). Charges from USB port in under 2 hours and lasts over 2 months with daily use. It goes to sleep so you don't have to remember to turn it off and you can also use it while plugged in and charging. Liked it enough that I another for my desktop.

      My old Mircosoft mouse ate up an AA alkaline battery every month and you had to remember to turn it off.

      A mouse should have a tail.:lolblue:


      Ask the three blind mice.

  14. I opened up my Mom's pool a couple of days ago.  The warm winter created a mess of algae.

  15. Rain expected all next week. I don't mind it except for the extra grass cutting.  Last year was very wet too.

      Every day of rain is one more day you can promise yourself you'll do it "tomorrow".


    3. GoldLeader


      I've mowed all of my lawns once...A few nice days and one day was 43 degrees, but I needed to get it done...

    4. GoldLeader


      FWIW,  That's 5 lawns and now it's raining here tonight too...

  16. I just got home and it smells like something died in here.  I checked on the cat and cleaned the litter box.  I can't figure out where the smell is coming from.

      Yeah, I've had that happen.  A rat burrowed into the insulation in one of my walls and died there.

    3. joeatari1


      Left a wrapper from chicken in the trash can?  They can small awful after a day or two.  Good luck!

    4. Atarian7


      I only smelled it downstairs yesterday and today the smell seems to have dissipated.  I don't think I just got used to it because I couldn't

      smell it upstairs where I sleep.



  17. What do you get a Mother on Mother's Day who just lost her daughter?

      A gift card for professional counceling if the grief gets too bad?

    3. save2600


      Flowers always, but how about a favorite picture of her, nicely framed? Something like a 5x7 or 8x10.

    4. cvga


      Being there, or just knowing that you care if you're not nearby, will mean more to her than any gift. I'm sorry for your loss.

  18. I'm 1/3 in shock, 1/3 sad, and 1/3 angry.

      Sorry to hear that.

      Much too young, but hopefully a life fully lived.

      I'm Sorry, Brother.

    4. Atarian7


      Thank you all for your kind thoughts and words.


  20. There's heavy rain here.  Amazingly, the paper is dry.

      Do people still get the newspaper?

  21. I went to buy some ground beef and all they had was the organically grown brand for about $8 a pound.

    1. BydoEmpire


      A little pricey but quality costs money.  Garbage in/garbage out. ;) 

    2. save2600


      Give ground turkey a try if you haven't already. I did over 25 years ago and can count on one hand how many times I've bought ground beef since. Ground venison is excellent too.

    3. jd_1138


      Is there an Aldi near you?  They seem to be well stocked up in meats (not the best but ok).  Also, Aldi has high quality grass fed free range ground beef for like $5 a pound, so not too much more than regular ground beef.  It comes in small packs of one pound each.

  22. Happy Earth Day.  Save the Humans!

  23. Waiting for my mask so I can go into the grocery store.  Mandatory masks went into effect today at 7 am in MD.

  25. Walmart sold almost none

    of their Easter candy this year.   Right now it is 50% off. 

    1. Stephen


      No candy for me - I am down 10 pounds the past 3 weeks, wife is down a bunch too.

    2. GoldLeader


      I already bought a couple of chocolate rabbits at the dollar store....Yesterday I bit the ears offa one,...For old time's sake.

    3. GoldLeader


      I have this theory.  (Sure, I'll put it here, why not?)  Maybe the reason the candy eyes of chocolate rabbits are always looking down or to the side, is so they're not looking directly at you when you bite their heads off.
