    Just finished the Umbrella Academy on Netflix. Love the show, but Ellen Page is just a friggen godawful actress, and especially the end (no spoilers) puts that on full display.

    Pair of circle jerking hobos grading these exams.
    There'd better be a REAL good reason I did not get above an 80% on that exam.

    Apparently Sennheiser PX100 got discontinued. What a huge shame...
    They were the best bang for the buck headphones out there...

    I've got one too.

    Usually I'm a very calm and chill driver but when getting near an intersection with a green light, some ***hole cuts in front of me (from a driveway or wherever), makes me brake hard, we get just in time for the light to turn yellow, he gets to pass and I have to stop. I cannot describe the feeling how much this thing angers me. Especially if no other cars were coming behind me so there was absolutely no reason for him/her to get in front of me and make me brake hard.

    Happens a few times per week.


    Bonus one: incredibly poor lane discipline on the US highways in general. Everyone is 'entitled' to drive on any lane at any speed :mad:
    It's nothing like driving in the nicer countries from EU.

    Kelty backpack. I have been using one for 10+ years, and have been very happy with it. Can carry on airplanes too. Very rugged. After many years, I decided to replace it as it is quite worn now. Got the updated Kelty model.
    Kelty has made a couple of changes I am quite unhappy with. The main zipper is not heavy duty like in the old one. The old waist buckle was heavy duty, the new one is cheap. And they have increased the length by a couple of inches - the old one used to fit in overhead bins without being having to put in lengthwise, it was just the right length. The new one will have to be put in lengthwise, taking more space and increasing the chances of being made to check it in. :no:
