    squirrels chewing cushions

    Patient: Doctor! It hurts when I do this. Doctor: Don't do that. A radical idea, I know, but maybe take the cushions inside when you're not using them? Next up: Why Rocket Science isn't for everyone.
  2. Global Warming? Here's all the evidence I need. Now excuse me while I find a sock to stuff into the hole where my brain used to be.

    Phone # to report bad (old) drivers?

    What about the nonagenarian who actually hit two people and fled the scene of the crime (yes, it's a crime, even for the entitled) today?

    How to Die in Mexico

    It's a rather pedestrian realization, but what's possible tends to happen everywhere, all the time, whereas what's not possible, never happens anywhere. So forget about the sick and do something we've never seen.

    Window 7 vs Window 10

    Yeah, you might want to rethink that... perfect adjective per·fect | \ ˈpər-fikt Definition of perfect 1a : being entirely without fault or defect : flawless a perfect diamond b : satisfying all requirements : accurate c : corresponding to an ideal standard or abstract concept

    Pitfalls in the English Language

    A hit, you say. Missing a consonant, maybe?

    Pitfalls in the English Language

    Taki Taki (also called Sranan), 340 words. Taki Taki is an English-based Creole spoken by 120,000 in the South American country of Suriname.

    Pitfalls in the English Language

    See, confusion. Next time, try reading for comprehension.

    Pitfalls in the English Language

    No it didn't. It created confusion to prevent communication ( according to the Tower of Babel myth in Genesis 11:1–7 "Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech".) BTW, who's this us? Not a word as to where the first language came from. Of course, it is known now that there are many genetically isolated languages, and as such, the bible is full of crap.
  13. Next, he'll be telling you that you have a closed mind, and then asking you if you were there. Whatever that might mean in this context, but you know MAGAts.
  14. "God gave us the earth and the rights are derived thereof, and the use of it, but people forget that basic fact." Fact? What do you know about facts? You god-bortherers just kill me (figuratively, though there was a time...). You'd think that in the 21st century, a statement like that would have you relegated to the short bus.

    Water Pressure Tank

    Pressure tanks that require a refill of air should be filled to 2 psi less than the tank minimum pressure. For example, if your tank depletes to 20 psi, at which point the pump kicks in, then the pressure tank should be charged to 18 psi. If the charge is 20 psi or greater your tank won't charge because the pump switch will not kick in, less than 18 psi and you lose at little usable volume. No big deal.

    Firefox Problem

    An unusual idea? To you, perhaps, but my 25 years as an IT professional says otherwise.

    Firefox Problem

    When was the last time the system (OS and apps) was reinstalled? If more than 2 years you should consider calling The Computer Guy for a rebuild. Windows has a tendency to collect crap over time; spyware, etc. Disk fragmentation may be an issue too.

    Need a Computer Fixer

    FYI, for you do-it-yourselfers, Clonezilla ( I know, unfortunate name) is free and will do what Ghost will do. For easy drive partitioning I recommend gparted (Gnome Partition Editor), also free. https://clonezilla.org/ https://gparted.org/

    Need a Computer Fixer

    Windows licenses don't expire. The tech who "fixed" your computer likely simply reinstalled a time limited demo version which are usually valid for 90 days. You were ripped-off. Welcome to Mexico. Unless you have a specific need for Windows, you might want to consider Linux. Always free, always more secure than Windows, and runs well on older equipment. https://itsfoss.com/reasons-switch-linux-windows-xp/
  21. Christian churches? Here, in Mexico? Yeah, we have a few.
