People who pay others to do their yard work . . .then pay to go the gym.
Interestingly, after decades of slaving over yard work, I finally broke down a couple of years ago and hired a yard service. Best move I ever made. No more cutting grass and raking for this cocksucker, yo. Also, they do a hell of a lot better job than I ever did. My thought was, the less work I endured cutting the goddamn lawn, the more time I'd have to expend on Xhamster, or here--although more likely at Xhampster. And, I don't bother going to the goddamn gym. What, like I'd pay somebody to lift fucking weights? What am I, one of those burned out demolished wackos in the joint? Not moi. Fuck that shit!!
That's all fine. If you were then paying to "pump iron" that would be a different story.
I pay for the yard service after my my mower died and looking at the the cost of a zero turn. It became clear to me that with the amount of time, maintenance and startup cost that I could pay someone for almost 5 years. I also pay for a gym membership but not a conventional gym as I still do mma and jujitsu but I’m starting to think about retiring from that. Thinking about one more fight and done.

People who leave fucked up (non)reviews of a product such as;

-I don't know if it fits, haven't received mine yet
-I ordered the wrong part so it was returned
-Looks well made, haven't had time to install it to check for internal leaks
-Outside shipping box arrived damaged but product box was ok
-I wish it was cheaper
-Should go well with my decor


If you can't review the actual product, DO NOT leave a gawddamn review.

Nice to have a discussion with differing viewpoints as adults, agreement or not. I am beginning to like this place. - koimaster

The word exquisite.
People that don't know the difference between "lose" and "loose".
Uncle Clint’s Readingship Akadamy helped me work out the difference.

Sure, it was “Clockwork Orange-style”, showing it on a continuous loop with a mechanical device to forcibly open my eyes…. But, today, I hardly ever loose a race!

I’ve got a theory that the lose/loose issue is an autocomplete driven issue.

I didn’t start seeing it until recent years and first thoyht who would confuse those? Just not a writing error I had often encountered before

But it is exactly the type ef thing autocomplete would do and without proofing something that could easily slip by

Might be all wrong but a hypothesis anyhow

All the fly by wire, driver assist, and other intermediating gimcrackery in new cars

This is my therapy.

Cracking Alpha! I agree. If you can't drive, you shouldn't drive. Won't catch me using no driving "assistance."

I didn’t used to know the below until intertubes and stuff

“ The company's name is a combination of the original name, "A.L.F.A." ("Anonima Lombarda Fabbrica Automobili"), and the last name of entrepreneur Nicola Romeo, who took control of the company in 1915.”

Per Wikipedia

Haha! That's funny. I thought nobody needs that stuff, I hate it, cars are for driving, etc, etc. But I've got my first modern car now and it almost drives itself and I absolutely love it. Less stress, more relaxed, can enjoy the music/company better.

Cool car though.
