    I knew they were completely revamping it so I had to see. Still took what seems like about 2 minutes for facebook to fully load.

    I hate Edge and Bing both. I use Chrome almost exclusively but do have to use Internet Explorer(11) with some applications at work.

    For your reading enjoyment or head scratching, as the case may be, this link to today's "Now I Know" archive item that pertains to graham crackers. The inventor seemed to think that a vegetarian diet would inhibit sexual activity and lustful behavior.

    Just musing: if the masses at the time had taken to this diet, would any of us be here now?

    Same here. Some of my co-workers like Firefox but it seems to work like crap for me.

    Moving the oldest to ISU today. What is the structure that’s just south of JTS? It’s like a three-legged white “dome” with some tan brick walls surrounding it.

    It was amazing how fast some of those listings went. Some of them I replied within a half hour and they were already sold.

    By "just south" do you adjacent to the stadium on the south? That would probably be part of the Reiman Plaza that was added as part of the whole SEZ & Reiman Gardens expansion. I have not seen it since last December and it wasn't finished so I don't know what it looks like.

    Firefox has been my go-to ever since Navigator died. I despise IE & Edge; Bing is an obnoxious POS that hot-links every other word, making scrolling on your touch screen problematic; Chrome is okay, but I'm fluent in Firefox and don't really want to switch unless forced to.

    I hate the way Bing has to package so much of the results in their page so they can put their advertising around it. It makes the results cumbersome to actually use.

    This is your rebuttal to the Steve King/rape/incest theory.

    I was a Firefox devotee for quite awhile. (I loath IE.) But I too think Chrome is superior, mostly because it seems to protect me better against spyware and pop-ups. Although I owe a tip of the cap to @CycloneErik for recommending AdBlock Plus.

    I didn't even know there was a Garbage Pail Kids movie, but apparently there was in 1987, and it's on Comet channel right now.

    I don't even think it's supposed to be a horror movie but it is pretty creepy.

    This is funny. They had a Cabbage Patch doll at one of the State Fair exhibits. My daughter saw it and said she remembered having one when she was younger - she got it from her cousins - and she thought that thing was creepy as hell.

    Nothing like 30% of my production bonus going to Uncle Sam every 3 months.

    I knew people that wouldn't work overtime because they said too much went to taxes. Back in those days I was more than happy to take all that ot.

    One of my mom's infamous quotes:

    Someday, you will understand.
