So APPARENTLY I'm WAY closer to affording a room in Philly than I thought I was( turns out googling "apartment for rent" is a different search than "Room for rent"). Either way I plan on saving up until September, and finally moving out of my parents place!

Yeah there’s a phone clip been goin’ ‘round on reddit where people have been trying to extrapolate the size/distance based on the shockwave/sound arrival, etc.

Tomorrow is elections day. I hope the current maYor gets reelected. I have two reasons. First, this is the first time that I feel that mayor really cares about the city and doing a good work, second, changing administrations are always a nightmare.

Had a good work day today, but it was a LITTLE annoying that the first Chipotle I went to today had a broken grill. Still open though, presumably to tell customers and the other deliveryfolk that they'd have to call their customers to cancel the order so they still get payed a dollar eighty-six.

Saw them in concert last night. Kevin remembered me from the facebook chat. :D He came up and struck up a short conversation during the break between sets, but my wife missed it, so we posed for photos after the show.

I am so glad that you posted this, as I hadn't realized they were touring and just managed to squeak in to see them - they're absolutely phenomenal live! And how cool that you got to "talk shop" with Kevin - he's such a friendly guy (and insanely talented, of course)!

Well, he won. 44.08% of the votes; 29% more than the next candidate. He is the first re-elected mayor of Portoviejo.

Someone on imgur linked a comic and said it was in the style of "C&H."

Some users interpreted that as "Cyanide and Happiness."
Others interpreted it as "Calvin and Hobbes."

I wonder if that's a generational divide.

I thought cyanide and happiness, but only because they are regularly reposted on imgur

But apparently the Z's haven't had such fortune, I guess?
Hey, hey, hey! Watch those nicknames! :p

On a side note, probably since I am not a Millennial or Gen-whatever-letter-they've-adopted-now, while I recognize the characters/artwork immediately, I always forget the comic is called "Cyanide & Happiness".

British Airways flight BA3271 got a bit lost today. It was supposed to go from London to Dusseldorf, but somehow ended up touching down in Edinburgh.

I think Millenials still interpret it as Calvin and Hobbes, as their GenX parents have often passed down/re-bought the collections to give to their kids because they were so precious to their own childhood. Generation Tide Pod, though... I guess not so much.

... But... HOW? Did they realize it, too? Or did they get to the jetway and wonder "why aren't the skycaps speaking German?"

Did Londoners hijack it, thinking they were escaping Brexit, forgetting that Scotland didn't secede?

It looks like the pilot's were given the flight plan for the plane's last flight yesterday (which was London to Edinburgh). No one realised anything was wrong until the plane was coming down to land & the pilot did the whole "We are now landing in Edinburgh" announcement & the passengers collectively went "Wait, what?".

Apparently one of the cabin crew ended up asking the passengers to put their hands up if they wanted to go to Dusseldorf & the entire plane put their hands up.

I'm pretty sure Millenials were alive for Calvin and Hobbes, and didn't need it handed down.

Some of the earlier ones perhaps, but less so the ones born in the first half of the 90s.

You and I are X, but Millenials can be as young as 25 (born in 1994) and the last C&H comic was in 95.

The article I read was titled: “Plane lands safely, at wrong airport, in wrong country.”

C&H was syndicated and did (does?) reruns, so Millenials with newspaper-using parents could've enjoyed them all the same. My born-in-90's-Spain experience isn't wholly relevant to U.S. upbringings, but I grew up reading C&H on newspapers (and Sunday supplements), starting at age 4 or 5. My dad would often cut the strip out of a competitor's newspaper in the newsroom so I could read them at home. Hands down my favorite comic strip pre-internet.

A lady who's apparently the mother of the next door neighbor knocked on our door and asked if she could come over and pick our lemon tree, as she's already picked all she can reach from over the fence. Like, I'm happy to give away lemons because there's more than we'll use, and of course the neighbor is within their rights to any growing over the fence, but asking for unfettered access to our tree from our side of the yard seems a bit... cheeky? I'm not sure exactly what the etiquette protocol is here. I just gave her a grocery bag half full of lemons rather than let her in the yard.

Give them some lemon seeds. :D
