    Ventura Blvd.is an eighteen mile long street in the Valley, just north of Los Angeles. Don't go there too much, but having driven it a number of times, you begin to notice something. Every six to eight blocks all the stores start to repeat themselves over and over again. McDonald's, Starbucks, Del Taco, Pizza Hut, CVS, with some liquor stores, gas stations, nail salons, dry cleaners etc.in the mix.. Rinse and repeat.

    Best question for a climate skeptic: So you think all that CO2 that we've been pumping into the atmosphere by burning carbon based material is having zero effect on the atmosphere? Now being a skeptic on how to go about dealing with the issue is completely fair.

    Seems like a lot of people at our work do not understand what ASAP means.
    "We need you to do it ASAP."
    "Sure. Have you seen that we are booked with projects until June. Is second half of June okay?
    "No, we need it ASAP."
    "So when?"
    "ASAP"
    "Second half of June is the soonest we can do."
    "No, we need it ASAP."

    And so it continues...

    Damn, what a shame Arsebook bought Oculus.
    Oculus Rift S is probably the best VR headset price/feature wise, but it being owned by Fail book really, really grinds my gears...
    Sad thing is that there is no really good alternatives out there... HP Reverb needs a really beefy GPU to run those lenses, Valve Index is too pricey, plus needs those base stations, HTC Vive Cosmos is not that good...

    By all means, please enlighten me what does it mean.

    Screw it up.
    Recently they made all social features of Oculus locked behind Arsebook. Now need Arsebook account to use these features, even though a few years back Arsebook promised they would keep Oculus separate.
    Not that a lot of people didn't see that coming, but still, a pretty crappy move to break what you promised.
