I got that it was Letterkenny because I Googled the original line, but I had no context within the show because - and I know this is an unpopular opinion - I think the show is fucking stupid and unwatchable.

You know what statement bugs me? "Batman wins because of plot". No crap, really? I thought I was reading a documentary. This statement means nothing. That's the whole point. The plot, and Wayne's character, are that he wins on the basis of his brains. Of course the plot relays that.

While browsing Netflix, I spot a thumbnail with an actress that looks rather familiar. I click into the film to see the name of the actress. It also sounds familiar, but I can't remember where I recognize it from. I google the name.

"... is an actress and former porn star..."

Ah, that explains it.

He was my father's cousin. Not sure why but I posted the link and then added an edit that explained the situation. The edit doesn't seem to have taken.

So my father's cousin was KIA in Vietnam. He was a gunner in a helicopter and was killed while evacuating wounded soldiers. YEARS ago I spoke with the soldier who was saved and he had massive survivor guilt over the situation. My only regret in all of this is that there's very few people left alive that even knew Dallas. My father had 8 brothers and all but 2 of the 9 are gone. Gilbert is a statistic outlier for the Nihsens as they tend to go in their 70s from cancer.

Oh you guys are going to LOVE this one. When comedy goes from giggle to guffaw accidentally.

When we moved into this house, we were invited to join a neighborhood website called Nextdoor. At first I thought it was cool, but then realized that the only people who really use it are complaining about the absolute dumbest shit. "A strange car in the neighborhood - are they casing houses?!?" or "Damn kids and their fireworks at all hours!" Old people shit like that.

The big one going on right now is "Dogs Barking- Please please PLEASE. Don’t leave your dogs out barking. This happens all the time at all hours of the day. Thank you!"

After about THREE FUCKING DAYS AND 50+ POSTS I put this:

I love these posts but don't know whether to file them under "fuddy" or "duddy".

We live next door to a couple of guys who have a dog that barks constantly once they leave for work. But what are they supposed to do? They can't leave the dog out all day. Boarding it would be stupid. So it barks. Stuff happens. Yeah, it can be annoying, but we put up with it because that's what neighbors do. Put yourself in their shoes, see it from their side. If there's a reasonable solution be an adult and fix it. If there's not a reasonable solution you can ignore it, move, or escalate it with the law and potentially cause a feud.

Pick the Hatfields. Those McCoys are jerks.
The Hatfield and McCoys joke was a real throwaway line. And then someone "liked" my post and "thanked" me.

His name is Todd Hatfield.

I'm still laughing.

Hah, did you get your invite via a POSTCARD in your MAILBOX too?

I joined my "nextdoor" network too, it's 50% lost pets, and the rest is exactly as you describe it.

You got really lucky, too. Had you suggested backing the McCoys instead you'd have actually been starting a feud with your neighbor.

Got a phone call last night from a buddy. It's a long & drawn out situation but here's what it boiled down to:

  • His sister in law got a call from someone claiming to be from Microsoft.
  • She believed him
  • She gave him access to her computer and downloaded a program.
  • Her laptop was locked up tight and they said $1500 to unlock.
Now, some of this I knew going over to their house to help out and some of it I found out when I got there. In the end, they decided to just toss the old POS laptop and get a new one. There was nothing on there that they really cared about. The number the "Microsoft" guy gave did not work so that said to me that they were data mining so I had them change all their passwords and call their banks since if the guy did datamine they have all the accounts, passwords, credit card numbers, etc.

Then they asked me to look at their other desktop. Taskbars everywhere. So I tried to download Spybot S&D and couldn't find a copy for...Windows Vista. When I finally did I downloaded it at a blazing 100k bps. And the update was still downloading when I left. I had to get up for work and couldn't stay any later.

Jesus, people! MICROSOFT WILL NOT CALL YOU!!
