    I was like that, until my wrists started giving me trouble 20 years ago. After that I had to go in for more ergonomic solutions. And I became a convert of fancier mice with extra buttons and stuff when voice chat became a mandatory part of online gaming.

    So I woke up this morning to a ballistic missile threat warning. On phones, on TV, the warning system at Joint Base Pearl Harbor Hickam...

    It was a false alarm.

    I don't know if it's a rant or epic win because I'm pissed this happened and I'm so happy it was nothing. Fucking scary as hell.

    Thanks. It was pretty awful. I wasn't too worried about it until the big voice system on the base started broadcasting to shelter in place. There is no community plan for what to do in the event of a missile launch other than to get to a windowless room with your emergency supplies. That is literally no room in the downstairs of our house.

    edit: because I'm still wired and it's affecting my grammar.

    Consumer Reports "Washing Your Greens Won't Protect Against E. Coli"

    "According to James Rogers, Ph.D., director of Food Safety and Research at Consumer Reports, if E. coli (or any other type of bacteria that can cause food poisoning) is present in your produce, washing it won’t remove all of those organisms. And it doesn’t take much bacteria to make you sick.

    "'It is very difficult to remove bacteria from leafy greens,' he says. 'Bacteria have the ability to adhere to the surface of the leaves, and to get stuck in microscopic crevices.' E. coli bacteria can even find their way into the interior of your produce."
