‘Learning something new’ refers to something that YOU PERSONALLY did not know earlier. The age of the fact itself is irrelevant. Miss smarty-pants is showing her arrogance and ignorance.
Now, if she had objected on the grounds of triviality, she would have had a point.
Yeah, and he’s no longer in business in that area. Funny coincidence, huh?
A friend of mine had a buddy who got a rug at a storage auction and had it appraised. The first appraiser offered him $1000 to ‘take it off his hands’. The second appraiser told him to insure it for at least $1 MILLION and then sell it, preferably to a museum.
The idiot decided to keep it, didn’t get the insurance – and had a break-in soon after. The rug was the only thing taken, and last I heard no arrests were ever made.
Sell the blessed rug, please.
I’ve always heard ‘night owls’ – and as a 2nd and 3rd shift worker for a lot of my life, I heard it a lot!
Sandwich in one hand, drink in the other, quickie lunch. I’ve done that – years ago when I was young and didn’t care about digestion.
Oh, yeah, and all 3 sets are different brands and ages – mine is an old CRT! Don’t judge, it still works, it’s only 17 years old.
What can really drive you crazy is 3 TVs (roommates) all on the same channel – one wired to the cable box directly, one getting signal through wifi, and one with Roku. Plus, one roommate is seriously hard of hearing.
Fortunately, this only happens rarely, generally when something important is on the news, or when the science channel has something great going on. Because the lag is different for each set, and up to 3 minutes for the Roku.
Everyone seems to think that the woman in this strip is incapable of dealing with Opus herself. If she’s upset, annoyed, angry, or offended she is an adult who can SAY this – or, you know, MOVE HER HEAD and he’ll fall. No one has asked her opinion.
Seriously, if she isn’t using that phone to call for help, it’s completely between her and Opus.
I don’t understand the problem. I love walking, and go out most days – if I can. I don’t walk in the rain, and I can’t walk far when it gets too hot. Fortunately for me, the gym is only a few blocks away, and has stationary bikes (I can’t use treadmills anymore for health reasons). Walking is good for you, is relaxing, and gives you time to listen to music, audio books, etc.
Somebody needs to convince that so-called “teacher” to find a new profession and stop interfering with the kids’ education.
