“When did Pong arrive?” Pong came out in 1975, but it was actually the 3rd console to be sold to the general public. The Magnavox Odyssey (1972) and TV Tennis Electrotennis (1975) preceded it.
“Never had console games 50+ years ago”
True. The Magnavox Odyssey console only came out 49 years ago.
Buying a physical book? In this day and age? What a novel idea.
What’s sexist or racist about it?
Yup, it’s the neighborhood circle of life. Though I could do without the #$%^&@* Karen that moved in to the house next door after Edna passed away.
“Unless you’re a woman. Then you have to let old white Republican men dictate what you can do with your body.”
Add to that the LGBT+, non-white people, and those who don’t identify as evangelical Christians. Basically, Republicans generally only believe in the freedom to look, act, think, and believe exactly as they do. There’s a reason why they’re sometimes referred to as the Christian Taliban or Y’all-qaeda
Please don’t give the Karen next door any ideas. She’d probably pay someone to do that, then b—ch to me that I didn’t rake my lawn.
Liz should worry less about what her mother hears Michael say and more about what her mother is going to smell.
And had an owner who did nothing about it. One of ’em peed on my dining table. That was the last straw.
“I have known several cats that — without “training” — did not claw furniture, curtains, etc. Most, though not all, were able to wander outdoors.”
In other words, they had access to items that was acceptable for them to claw on. Giving cats said alternative is part of training your cat to not claw on the furniture. But yeah, cats and their owners all have their own personalities. I got a refresher on that when my sister and her BF lived with me with their cats. His personality was too lazy to train his cats not to claw my furniture or the woodwork. I had to do that myself. I evicted all of them because he was also too lazy to train his cats not to pee everywhere.
