So trivial, yet it really ticks you off.

    Still got it, but I don't drive it in the winter. I had all I care for of driving rear-wheel-drive cars in the snow when I was young, to say nothing of the ultra-corrosive road-clearing chemicals used here.

    If your condition was such that it significantly limited your mobility (like, if walking a hundred feet or more was a real strain), in many jurisdictions you would likely qualify for a disabled person’s parking permit. It might involve a signature from a health-care provider attesting to that.

    It's over there - the one occupied by the pimped out cherry red pickup truck with 8" lifts and the handicapped tag hanging from the mirror.

    Fruit flies, and their love of beer and red wine.

    As in my beer and red wine...

    How can a Vitamin B-complex food supplement, that's probably daily produced in millions, increase in price 17% in three years??

    I was wondering how that pun would translate into German.

    Oh wow, the WC-biozid cleaning wipes from drugstore are now bio-degradable and can be disposed in the toilet. Humanity is in progress! ;)

    Right. I'd still throw them in the trash.

    Hardly! Real progress will have been made when you can put metal in the microwave.

    Be careful with those wipes. I had ten years' worth of "flushable" product cause a catastrophic failure of my sewer line, and ended up with two feet of backed-up effluent in my cellar. Never again.

    A plumber whom I trust once told me, "Toilets are designed to flush three things, and three things only--human waste, toilet paper, and water. Nothing else, ever, no matter what anyone says."

    Was just sarcasm. I never throw these wipes in the toilet, because of the biozid, which is told not to get into the effluent. :

    I'm always again fascinated, how hardly cats are triggered by birds! They must smell delicious. :D

    This is pure speculation based on observations I've made while my wife and I have owned cats for the last 35 years, but I'd guess it's because even domesticated cats are hunters. Birds, rodents, insects, other animals small enough to not pose a threat--they're game. Chasing them alleviates the boredom and provides exercise and fun. And if they catch their "prey", they can proudly bring it to "Mom" and/or "Dad" as a gift.

    Good taste though. This is the third I fished out of my scotch just now:

    Annoyance du jour: the prevalence of breathy speaking style among radio announcers. Why must they always sound like they're out of breathe? Is it supposed to impart greater intensity or credibility? Credibility? Ha! Don't ya know that's what British or Australian accents are for these days?!

    Over-enunciation and over-emphasis is just as obnoxious. "We have a VERY DISTURRRRBING story FOR YOU today. A QUINNNNNZY woman was ARRRRRESTED this morning for BEATING HER NEIGHHHHHHBOR to DEATH with a FROZEN TURRRRRKEY." (Paraphrased from the sort of drek you hear every morning over WBZ.)
