Who’s had sex and who hasn’t? (or really any thread about sex)
I think we actually did have a "favorite sex positions" thread (or something along those lines).

Heh, I forgot about that? How inappropriate would it be if I bumped it because mine has changed? (If it hasn’t been locked or removed...)

I regularly see people shaving (with electric razors) while driving.

It's an old D&D joke

I'm a little surprised that there hasn't ever been D&D thread here, honestly. It's pretty popular right now and I'd think there'd be a decent amount of interest here in a game that lets you create your own cities to run around in...

Well, I gave it up years ago because I found it Hobbit forming.

public restrooms

while driving

I suppose those qualify as “public”, but what I was envisioning was something truly out in the open—like on a street corner or in a public park.

Airports you've clinched?

How do you clinch an airport? Visit every gate? Take off or land on every runway?  Using every taxiway would be quite unlikely unless you're the pilot and the ground controller cooperative.

Been on every direct scheduled flight from that airport to some other airport at least once?


I know this is over 5 years old, but for a few years, I could say I clinched every commercial airline route out of HSV in 2014, with 9 routes on 4 airlines. That changed as two new airlines appeared, vying for Orlando; I may have to work on that one day. I can also count Albany, Georgia (ABY) and Columbus, Georgia (CSG), since they each have one airline and a single destination. This was back when I lived in Florida.

The last two feel like clinching I-175 and I-375 in St. Petersburg.

Topic results in 553 replies, a nasty flame war that gets two people banned, and the thread is ultimately locked with decision to retain policy for inexplicable reasons.

"Football", a quite ambiguous word for me. I assume "association" football instead of "American" football.

All times Eastern unless DST is in force only in the USA (Central in that case to preserve "6 hours behind my actual time") or otherwise noted

Not as far-fetched as it may sound. Kiribati moved to the other side of the Date Line a while back. Their time zones include UTC+13 and UTC+14.

Regarding DST, I was playing with the time entry software at the office and I found that I were to work from 1:00 to 3:00 this Sunday morning, it would credit me with two hours’ work (and pay) even though only one hour would elapse. I have no interest in being at work at that time even if I could (can’t—the secure server we use will be down for maintenance all weekend), and taking advantage of that strikes me as a good way to get fired.

At this moment I think I've "clinched" HOT, having flown DFW-HOT and HOT-DFW.
