    An ISP just became available in my area. I will no longer be forced to use DSL, I will have 300Mbps fiber optic!

    Re: Post Race!

    I was watching an episode of Alone on history channel, its a survival show with a $500k reward at the end. There was a guy who started eating bark off of a tree by boiling it in water first. When he was doing it, I armchair quarterbacked and said "ohh man, that's too much fiber". Sure enough he went home because he couldn't pass a BM.

    Yeah. It's uplifting.

    I remember some study on the subject of perceived time. It seems to go faster as you get older such that your perceived middle age is about 27.

    A ship broke in two off the coast of Japan. https://currently.att.yahoo.com/att/...130154998.html

    The ship breaking a part is terrible but I couldn't help but laugh when I read what the cargo was. It was carrying wood chips. If you got to go to sea, a ship full of wood is the cargo I'd want. lol

    Yeah, I knew about the problem with the Liberty ships. Many of them were made just 75 miles from where I live. There is Liberty ship kept at San Francisco's Fishermans Wharf.

    I'm getting 150Mbps off of my extender in my room, which is where I work out of, and roughly 300Mbps in the living room, which is where the modem is.

    Compared to what I had, my internet is blazing fast!

    I'm supposed to be getting "up to" 400mbps but in reality it's usually less than half that unless it's 3-4am. Still beats the 20-25 mbps I was paying $10/month more than I am now. It's that "up to" phrase that gives them the excuse.

    You guys really know how to twist long things around into really thin pensi's. Think we use to call them pensi's to avoid ban hammers back in the ol' vbforum days.

    Now that I think about it, which I admit I haven't before, if what Superman was doing would work, then anytime I put on my sunglasses, everybody would think I was a stranger.
