    The ones you usually feel, yeah, they're exactly the same motion as ocean waves, except in reverse. Meaning they break the opposite direction they're moving. Or they're akin to holding one end of a garden hose and whipping it side to side.

    So...perpendicular?
    Or is it laterally rather than vertically?

    Laterally, but imagine it more like putting your hand on top of a deck of a deck of cards and moving it side to side while pushing it forward. Those are called Love waves. As sweet as that sounds, Love was the surname of a scientist.

    The last quake I was in was the Northridge quake. I was in San Diego, and woke up for just a moment to the sensation that someone was shaking my bed. Then it stopped and I went back to sleep. Later that morning I found out what happened.

    I'm excited for the Jurassic World Trailer dropping tomorrow and I'm guilty for that. One the one hand, Jurassic Park is one of my favorite films and I can ackowledge that the ones that followed haven't been the greatest but are still fun (except for 3...that was hard).

    On the other hand? I've literally fallen for the advertising for the trailer. Like, the snippets. They have made trailers for trailers and I'm not sure how I feel. You cant even call them 'teasers' because they are barely six seconds long.

    I dunno man. Complex feelings? I guess?

    I admit, I'm a sucker for the dinosaur movies, too. And all these "trailers for trailers" nonsense has got to go. Along with the "Trailer #23A" crap. Give us one or two trailers, let us wait to see the damn movie! (Looking at you, Star Wars.)

    I am still in Colorado taking care of my father in law. Today I went to get my hair cut and right in the middle of the cut she asked me if I was friends with my lord & savior, Jesus Christ. Damn it. I let her know I was not a religious guy and it was ON. The rest of the haircut was nothing more than a christianity sales pitch. She was surprised I was an atheist because I was here doing a good thing for a family member and I'd been so polite and nice. When I asked she admitted she didn't actually KNOW any atheists, but without Jesus in their life, she figured, how could they be good people?

    Longest. Haircut. Ever.

    I hope you said "if you can't bring yourself to be a good person without Jesus forcing you to be, are you really, in fact, a good person? Is a dog on a choke chain well behaved if you dare not let him off the leash?"

    I said nothing. I got my hair cut, paid, and left. Not like I'l ever be back again.

    I mean, she was nice, but EVERYTHING was Jesus. The radio station, the pictures hanging on the wall, the little bric-a-brac things she had around. But of course I was already there so leaving would have been weird.

    Yeah no, that right there sets off my Sweeney Todd-sense pretty hard. Proselytizing while wielding sharp objects near my scalp would be most unwelcome, unless I'm a regular.

    I've found, "Can you change the subject?" to be a fairly polite way to get someone to stop talking about politics/religion/etc, followed up with, "I'm really not interested in that. If you have nothing else to talk about I would prefer silence."

    If they continue I complain, in writing, to the manager, and if it's a franchise up the corporate ladder afterward.

    I'm all for finding out if people want to discuss religion and politics, my beliefs include sharing them with everyone, but the moment they suggest otherwise - particularly in a position where they can't simply walk away - there's no excuse.

    When you move to a new area, it's kind of a necessity. This wasn't Dave's problem this time, but after an "odd" experience (I'll leave it there, one time only!) after moving to Kelowna, I knew how this kind of thing (not Dave's experience, different) could happen.

    I am so lazy about dealing with my hair. I really need to deal with it because it's growing out kind of weird in the front and I am so gray, but laziness continues to win.

    I usually get a haircut whenever it gets bad enough that I can't keep it out of my ears, which usually works out to be around 8 months.

    I've been with the same hair dresser for over 13 years and she's awesome.

    If I had to go to a new one for some reason and they started going on about Jesus, I'd leave.

    I shave my own head. I went to a barber one time while my wrist was in a plaster, and...well, he'd've been more likely to start about Mohammed than about Jesus :p And I can do a better job, so unless I break an arm or something again, I don't intend to be back there any time soon. Last time before that that I saw a hairdresser or barber was....Ummm....I think when I was on vacation in Zanzibar in 2012.
