    My stupid decision to stay in again today. Starting to go stir crazy, and have no one to blame but myself. Sometimes I think it would be good to put my decisions to a public vote. :p

    The idea that an insomniac can nap for 20 mins during the day.

    Music snobs who, when asked to name their favorite band, come up with some obscure East Texas rockabilly group that maybe a dozen people have ever heard of.

    Packaging bugs me. Like this:

    WastedPackaging.JPG

    There's 30 capsules in there, and the pot is 9cm tall and 4 1/2 cms wide. You could fit 6x the amount, and still have space leftover.
    I realise that it's likely more cost effective to make 1000s of the same size pots for dozens of different capsules...but it still irritates me.

    Black pants. Look nice until you get some crumbs or dust on them and poof - looks like pant dandruff.

    Skirt lengths!

    Either things are hellishly short - or they are too long. Why can't we have a middle ground?

    If there's one thing I've learned about clothing lengths, it's that hellishly long on normal people will be will be freakishly short on me.

    People that drive faster than me are crazy and those that drive slower or something else.
    There should be a special license to drive on California freeways as we are number 2 in traffic deaths.

    State Deaths in 2017
    Texas 3,722
    California 3,602
    Florida 3,112

    Updating my CV, so I thought I'd check out what styles of resumes are popular right now only to find that half of them have fricking bubble charts and whatnot representing applicant skill trees, passions and what they do in their free time. WTF world.

    Like this 13 years old Kalle here taking his mother to nice mothers day drive.

    I don't know do you drive faster or slower so I don't know is Kalle crazy or something else.

    I think his mom got it right in the end when she said "You're crazy."
    I know that would scare the hell out of me. I thought I was fast but I may have to rethink it a bit.
    I went to Bonneville a while back and I checked the average speed when I got home and it was 93 MPH but I think Kalle could have averaged 120. Was he from Finland the land of fast drivers?

    The overuse of the phrase "razor-sharp." Have you ever handled a proper razor? You'll see the blood before you feel the cut. Grizzly bears don't have razor-sharp teeth, they've got tremendous bite force.

    Kittens, on the other hand, do have needle-sharp claws. If you've ever tried to use a sewing needle to pop a blister you'll realize they're really pretty dull. I keep a pack of the lancets diabetics use for their blood checks around the house. Sterile and designed to pierce skin, what more could you need?

    You wanna go to CT's house. He'll show you how it's done. :p

    More the first half of your first point. Have you ever used a dollar store 5-blade razor?
    They suck worse than their 2-bladed counterparts. :p

    Sewing pins are good for getting out splinters, and have the right amount of ponityness
    and slender enough to do the job. :p

    Yeah lancets are always going to outperform the average pin/needle you find around the
    house. However, you can get a box of 100 27g hypodermic needles for 2-3$ online, and are
    individually wrapped. The thicker gauges may vary a bit as to whether they are wrapped and
    tubed, or just tubed and capped for sterile freshness. Finally for things that need a bit more than
    just poking, 10-packs of disposable scalpels are around 10-12$, individually wrapped and
    labeled for freshness. :D

    State and local laws apply :)

    I have no idea how Japan views those things, so I just stick (get it?) to pointy for safety's sake.

    I always forget that detail. :p

    Also makes onee wonder where they shoot their heavy duty pron then, if it happens to be illegal
    to buy scalpels and needles JP proper.
    :superthink:

    I don't know if it's illegal or not, I just err on the side of caution. As for the films, I'm sure the tattoed gentlemen in dark suits are able to take care of any licensing issues, they're a very persuasive lot.

    I used to get them from the local farm supply for around 15 cents per needle.

    That isn't bad for over the counter, if you don't need more than a few.
    The rest of us prefer to not have the locals start getting ideas, so off
    the interwebz we get our supplies. :p

    Well, I'd typically buy them in the 14g area, so I'm pretty sure they figured out I wasn't using them on myself for traditional means.

    Just because it might be problematic in some jursidictions, could I ask you guys to continue the discussion in PM? I started the discussion, it's not a warning or anything, just...yeah.
