Millennials and phones: While reading these posts, I got a mental picture of a few Ellgabbers sitting at the table with some of the Uninitiated. They were posting and chatting with us while their live companions looked on and fumed

Morg  sounds like such a character and so smart! I have mentioned this before but I once saw a doc on PBS about crows. Absolutely fascinating. Their mental acuity and ability to logic out resolutions to puzzles was off the charts. They beat every other kinds of animals including chimps (but excepting humans, I assume). The documentary was either Nature of NOVA, I believe. I'm a cat person but I once read a book where the protagonist got a raven companion. Ever since then I have wanted a raven. But never with 3 cats in the house

Tips: I tip 20% as a matter of form. I go out a lot with girlfriends and have been told that waitpersons  consider a gaggle of females as notoriously bad tippers. The younger the worse.  A friend educated me when we were still in high school, if the service is horrible tip a penny so the person knows you didn't forget but just didn't think the service was worth any more

I'm glad this seems to have gotten off to a good start. Nice exchanging thoughts with people I don't run into often enough. Have a nice evening, all

Says he needs help but nobody cares, claims he's too sick and too stupid to fix it himself.  Spends his money on worthless crap then begs for more. Can a worthless slug get any more pathetic?
He is a POS. There is a special place for him in HELL and it would be funny is the Devil is Heather Wade. We all know that He hates her.

You have a right to be proud of such nice work...but something tells me you already knew that
Thank you :)
Expect, if he a good guy, an invite to the next PPV fight, Superbowl, or something....
@albrecht  Embarrassed to say that, that didn't even cross my mind. He's a big fight guy and ufc 232 is just around the corner.. if he turns me down I'll challenge him to an old school fisticuffs in period clothing ;D

I don't know who that actor is, but that is awful! 


Disney and Universal have nothing to do with each other.  They are rival parks, so to speak.  Universal has Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure.  Disney has Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Epcot, and Hollywood Studios.  (Not including the water parks they both have and the shopping....)
Ah I see.  Maybe I just associated the two because of proximity and folks seem to talk about them together, etc.  Regardless it is indeed weird to have the camera setup just to get shorter lines.

Also the fingerprint things seemed identical so figured there was some connection but maybe someone was just an especially good salesman while making the original parks deal.

General Westmoreland's grandson?

He had two daughters, so no. And Disney, I think, is ABC so he would have no grudges.   ;)

Yeah. It was the universal side I was at. I just assumed maybe it was across all of them.  The facial recognition camera seemed a bit wonky a couple times though as they had to redo it once or twice on a ride or two. Pretty weird. I could’ve done without that.

You said it yourself Walks.  They were a young couple in their early twenties.  Us older folk shouldn't get mad at them.  Let them have their time in the sun.  They will probabley change in time.  Ageing does that, sadly.

Oh I suppose so Rixx.  I see something similar at work with the young Engineers.   As soon as they hit a snag, they look the issue up on Google and usually have a solution right away and just move on.  Efficient?  You bet! Of course the issue is when the Googler doesn't spit out a solution.  Then some of the other gray hairs or myself get a visit as they are stuck.  What happens thirty years from now when everyone is looking for answers from the beast and no one is feeding them into it?
