Since when do "random thoughts" have to be consistent? Besides, Astronomy and Science require putting all different ideas on the table.

The surface of the sun is approximately 10,000°F year round. If you put different ideas on the table, expect Astronomy and Science to laugh at you.

I wonder if humans will ever walk on the sun? I know it's extremely hot but if we sent a ship in the winter when the sun is like 30 degrees I bet we could land on it.
Instead of waiting until winter, why not just go at night?   :pan:

Playing with the URL tag. Do either of these two work? (They don't for me on Safari.)

Also, DO NOT click this one:

Localhost works for me, but probably only because I have an Apache server running on my desktop. The JavaScript one doesn't, thankfully.

They were already on the way there when I got my first job at Burger King in 2006. We had a first window (officially called "the hole"), but we never had enough employees to man it. When we did, it ate our labor cost percentage alive, so store management was never keen on letting us have someone to man it. It didn't really help our drive thru times much anyway, since the real time sinks were waiting for people to decide on what they wanted at the menu board, and for food to come out of the kitchen, not the paying. I'm not surprised that other restaurants are coming to the conclusion that having someone in the hole isn't worth the money and not even building them on new restaurants.

Of note is that, for a while in the 1990s, McDonalds was using three windows, one for ordering (in lieu of a speakerbox), one for paying, one for pickup. Later they reverted to a traditional speakerbox and two-window setup.

kenarmy posts lots of "(x artist) is better than your favorite singer" and "if you would just listen to (y artist)'s (z song), it would become your favorite."  That's not how musical taste works for me.

That's not how musical taste works, period.  It's not like, if we don't like Britney Spears, then it's because—oops! we made a mistake—

I'm a bit annoyed you included the word "oops!" in the same sentence as Britney Spears without following it with some variant of "I did it again".


He didn't need to put in the "oops!"  We got it anyway.

Actually considered we could just launch at night, but since the sun turns off at night there would be nothing to land on, so we have to wait until a 20 degree winter day in the daytime so the sun is on, but has a nice icy surface.

Can't tell whether you're just filling space with a ha-ha or you're actually serious, but somewhat related is that some farmers think Daylight Saving Time is bad because the extra hour of sun burns up their crops.

That is why farmers shade their crops one day every 4 years to compensate for leap year.

Thank goodness on that last one.

Also, chances are you don't know what "everyday" means.

I've seen this one often in businesses (e.g. free ear piercings everyday, although they don't tell you that it's free with purchase of something else). The worst I've seen, however, is this:

"Walk-In's Welcome", made worse in that it would cost a lot to fix it. You can't just replace a piece of paper, a menu, or anything like that in this particular case.

why does holyoke, colorado have a street called 'interocean blvd' ? big aspirations? it's a wide spot in us 6 for chrissakes.

According to the Phillips County website coordinator:

Most of its streets were named for important people in the community, but there is some question as to the naming of the street named “Interocean”. Some believe it was named because the Pacific Ocean is on one side and the Atlantic is on the other, others say that it was a slam against the Union Pacific, ...
