So, I go the grocery store with the twins. My wife is at home with the oldest kid taking classes toward her doctorate. I buy our groceries for the week - it's a lot of stuff. It's also a week when we have a lot of non-edible purchasing - detergent, toothpaste, contact solution, etc. I reach for my wallet - and it's not there. Shit. I left it at home.

I ask if I can just give them our credit card number, and even though we're well known at this grocery store, they won't let us do it. Best they can do is put our shopping in the cooler and I can come back and get it. I agree to this when the guy at the next register over gets my attention. He's holding out his credit card at me. I tell him I can't, and he says he'll give me his phone number and we can send him the money. It's an expensive week - over $400. This guy took a huge risk that he didn't have to. We sent him the money and he acknowledged receipt. That was really nice.

Then on Sunday morning, my wife noticed that the food in the refrigerator seemed not really all that refrigerated. We were able to salvage much of the of the produce, but dairy and meat were right out.

The weird thing is that the freezer and ice maker are still working great. I don't get it.

The moral is, Samsung appliances suck ass.

I don't know your kid, but I'll wager she would do better taking those classes herself.

Im back to wondering when that Star Trek convention me and my wife went to in the early 90s was. Ive even asked Q himself John De Lancie and he doesn't recall. I cant find it in any of his stuff and I plan to call the auditorium tomorrow. I doubt they have records.

What I DO know is...

The Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Auditorium was closed for repairs from 1988 to 1991.
On the way down I remember hearing The Spin Doctors on the car radio. It was either Two Princes or Little Miss Cant Be Wrong...Im thinking Two Princes. It came out 1992 and Little Miss was 1993. Unfortunately they were both on a album released in 1991.
I wore a STV jacket we had made ourselves. I was even on the news that night as after we got home we saw me on tv lol. Of course STV came out like 1989 so no help.

I have no idea who put on the convention. It HAD to be 91 late or 92 or 93 anytime. John De Lancie was the guest. I spoke to him and got his autograph on a photo. But he doesn't recall Chattanooga then. The rumor was next year was to be Deforest Kelley. But I didn't go...doh. Im not sure he showed or if they had it as I cant find a record of him in Chattanooga around that time either.

Why is this so difficult??

i haaaate to admit that i know anything about this band at all, but you have the release dates of those singles confused with each other. "Two Princes" was inescapable on commercial radio in 1993, so i'd say that's probablylikely the year you're thinking of.

With our refrigerator, we had the fan go out. Apparently the cold is generated in the freezer and then blown into the refrigerator part. Does the freezer seem colder than normal? Or is some of the stuff in the fridge part frozen while the rest is warm? We have a bottom freezer; we noticed that the stuff on the bottom of the fridge part (right above the freezer) was almost frozen while the stuff at the top was warm.

I’ve got a new Samsung washer and dryer about 5 years ago. Just gave up on the dryer this week after the 3rd repair attempt. Washer is still kicking despite a recall, a dislodged water pump hose, and as of last week: a class action lawsuit!

All I know is what WIKI says lol..it can be wrong.
"Little Miss Can't Be Wrong" is a song by American rock group Spin Doctors. It was released in October 1992 as the lead single from their 1991 debut album Pocket Full of Kryptonite.[2] Live versions of "What Time Is It?" and "Freeway of the Plains" (mistakenly titled "Freeway of Plains" on the single) were included as its B-side.[1] The single reached number 17 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number two on Mainstream Rock Tracks. It also reached number five in New Zealand, its highest chart position anywhere, and ended 1993 as the country's 41st best-selling single.
"Two Princes" is a song by American rock group Spin Doctors. Released as a single in 1993, it reached No. 7 in the United States, No. 2 in Canada, and No. 3 in the United Kingdom and Australia. It was the band's highest-charting single internationally. It earned them a Grammy Award nomination for Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group.[
I could almost swear we went early in the year though...like March perhaps. I cant find when Two Princes was released other than the year. So Im 'pretty sure' its Little Miss Cant Be Wrong that I heard in the car. At that time I dont recall a second hit yet. So still thinking early 93.

wikipedia is actually also correct, both in the part you quoted and with this:

but if it's actually your original memory that's at question, i have nothing more to say. (and since this concerns a really annoying band, i will also hope this never comes up again)

We have a bottom freezer; we noticed that the stuff on the bottom of the fridge part (right above the freezer) was almost frozen while the stuff at the top was warm.
I called around to a few emergency repair places, and eventually Jerry just told me what he assumed it was. Not too long ago, the fridge was making quite a racket. Internet sleuthing told me it was ice build-up getting hit by the fan, and the solution was to use a hair dryer aimed into the vent holes to clear things up. It worked!

When I explained this to my new best friend Jerry, he said that my temporary fix made things worse. He explained that the cooling from the fridge all came from one source - the freezer. If the freezer was working but the fresh food area was not, I now likely had a full ice blockage preventing any cold air from coming up. He said he could charge me to come out and tell me this, but my best bet was to empty it, unplug it, and let it go to room temperature. Spending 20 minutes with a hair dryer from the bottom (i.e., the freezer) would be wise, too.

Since it was well below freezing all weekend, we put the freezer contents on the back porch and kept the rest in coolers on ice. Jerry even called me back later in the day to see how things were going. Things seem to be working OK again, but we're keeping a close eye on things. Because, you know, Samsung appliances suck ass.

Indian record label claimed "copyright infringement"... on a blog run by Indian copyright lawyers SpicyIP. Specifically, they believe an article posted on SpicyIP back in 2010, explaining that a particular song had a long origin and traced the lineage, somehow violated their copyright.

We had a Samsung dishwasher for a few years. It was terrible and stopped working shortly after the very limited warranty expired.

I love their TVs but would never buy another Samsung appliance.

ABC News
A homeless veteran pleaded guilty Wednesday in New Jersey federal court to conspiring with a woman and her then-boyfriend to concoct a feel-good story that helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars from a GoFundMe campaign.

The veteran, Johnny Bobbitt, 36, pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering.

The woman, Kate McClure, 28, pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud.

Bobbitt, McClure, and her then-boyfriend Mark D'Amico, who still all face state charges in Burlington County, New Jersey, were accused of fabricating a feel-good story about Bobbitt coming to McClure’s aid when she ran out of gas along the highway and gave her his last $20.
...
McClure faces up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Her sentencing is scheduled for June 19.

Bobbitt could be sentenced to a maximum of 10 years in prison. He will be sentenced at a later date, prosecutors said.

Bobbitt will appear in drug court in Mount Holly on Friday related to the state charges for this incident.

The guilty pleas in federal court do not impact the case out of Burlington County, a spokesman for the prosecutor's office said.

McClure, D'Amico and Bobbitt have all plead not guilty to the state charges against them.

He plays to what's relevant. When drumpf is no longer relevant, he'll do something else.

That said, I felt he was really struggling to be entertaining after leaving his conservative persona behind. John Oliver's show is more clever, more entertaining and more informative than Colbert's. Hell, I find a fair number of Colbert's drumpf jokes are whiffs. He does hit a few out of the park as well though.

Think Im going to have to go to a different doctor come the first nice day....maybe next Tuesday. That fall did a number on my left hand and arm. My hand is still painfully sore. Its not swollen now but I cant grip super strong with it and I cant move my fingers well in certain ways. Like I can make a fist fine but if I pinch my index finger and thumb together theres some pain. Then middle finger and thumb barely work...ring finger to thumb is almost a no go and pinky to thumb hurts and gets nowhere close to touching.

And now my entire arm is starting to have a semi falling asleep feel to it...like the nerve is hurt. Its the same shoulder that has bad arthritis in it. About 5 years ago I had to have my pain doc at that time put a shot into it. So it could all be worse than I thought.

My right hand is still sore but I can use it it just is sore still. But so is my left knee that hit the ground along with my hands. Ive called the hospital walk in I went to twice begging for a return call with an update on my xray but nothing from them. If my left hand is broken or cracked I cant let it go for weeks and have it heal wrong.

There will be terrible politicians after Trump.

Seriously, though, he's a very good talk-show host. His comic timing is great, probably Johnny Carson level.

I dream of a world where he tilts and spars with mere celebrities rather than catastrophes.

Colbert needed to commit to his new persona, and the Trump jokes helped him rediscover his voice.

Brian! What the hell did you start! This thread just passed 10 years old a few days ago. That's ~75 pages and 3,000 posts a year for a decade, much of it randomly random.

I have a conference call with a major client in Uganda early this morning. I wanted to be in the office by 6:30am to review my presentation (call starts at 7:30), so in preparation last night, I turned off all my devices early, triple-checked my alarm to make sure it was set, and went to bed about an hour before usual. Figured that should help me get in the office on time and ready to go, right?

After tossing and turning for about 2 hours, I finally fell asleep right around midnight. I then proceeded to wake up about every 20-30 minutes in a complete panic because I thought that I had somehow slept through the alarm (that I triple-checked was set). I was also woken up three times by either the dog (she was chasing something in her dream and sleep-running like crazy in her kennel) or the cats (who twice decided that my crotch was the perfect spot for them to start a 3am game of tag).

I'm now starting my day completely exhausted, I feel like my head is in a fog, and I'm banking on the No-Doz I took 15 minutes ago to somehow get me through the next couple hours without sounding like a complete jackass.

Yay, Monday! :coffee:

My radio said Sleepy Monday (after we set the clocks ahead) has the most accidents of any day of the year. You are not alone!

There's an undeniable spike but I don't know if it's the most of any day of the year. Certain holidays probably have more.

On Friday when I was getting ready to go out with the wife, I reached I to my pocket and a collar stay jammed itself under, and deep into, my finger nail on my middle finger. Blood gushed forth. If I recall, it's actually a method of torture. I understand why.

Boy v 2.8 likes to pick up stuff and put it in my jeans pockets when they're on the floor or the valet. Which explains the unexpected torture device in the pocket.

Finger still hurts today.

Arrgh!

A few months back I quickly reached down to empty the dishwasher and caught the tip of a knife under my nail.

I would have signed a confession then and there.
