I once watch a big bully Seagull eat a lit cigarette butt. He was chasing off any other gull that went after fries being thrown to them. Someone tossed a cigarette butt out. 2 gulls went after it, he pushed through them and just swallowed it whole. I have to admit, I laughed.

Saturday night I dropped my phone on my bed. It bounced and fell off the edge, clipping the angle iron frame below the mattress. Guess who got to pay someone to put a new $300.00 screen and digitizer in his phone yesterday!

Getting those two first, even out of place, really helped.

I'd really like one of the orange anniversary ones myself. I know they're much unloved by the community, but they seem like they'd be awfully nice to take on a spirited drive (with the stick) and not be constantly knocking on the door of a felony.

FML.

Going to try to find an antibody test for tomorrow.

This is interesting. Iíve been experiencing hives for months with no reasonable explanation. They started on 12/17 and Iím still getting them. Wonder if in fact I had the rona

If we're talking about the unexpectedly voracious, check out some pelican videos. They can be surprisingly aggressive and, um, ambitious.

More fun than you can imagine. The nice thing is they are powerful, but not too much so. You can push the car without getting in too much trouble. Compare to a 911 Turbo where you canít really do that.

Surprisingly, the only tickets Iíve received have been in the Jeeps. Not once in a German performance car. Just donít be stupid with them.

Screw the community of naysayers. 😜

Have never been a fan of the P all tan interior. I donít like the look or the fact that the dash badly reflects in the windshield.

I do like the Taycan tan/black interior that mine has. Dash, wheel and carpets are black which makes all the difference.

Took your lead, and bought Rapha bibs yesterday. REI credit now gone.

Average Wordle day.

Cool. Core? Core Cargo?

I'm thinking that I might burn through my massive REI dividend with some sun sleeves. Exciting stuff.

A screen is $300?

Regular Core. That's all they had.

It's really hard finding much of a selection of kit around here, and I'm not a fan of "team" stuff. I thought of ordering a pair of Assos bibs that are on sale online, but not sure what size, and don't want to hassle with returns and paying the shipping charges.

We burned through the rest of our dividend yesterday, and had to fork over a credit card at checkout. Wife got a pair of the Rapha Core bibs also and some workout shirts, and I picked up a jersey as well as some little things.

Screen and digitizer - two different parts.

Starting with iPhone X, the repair will cost you about $300.

Time to realize you are living in 2022, and not 1992.

Today is the birthday of two childhood friends of mine. They are brother and sister born on the same day one year apart. Imagine the odds.

I just bought my "new" phone for less than $300 on eBay.

There are quite a few phones there with cracked screens/backs for sale. I assume people buy/repair/resell them. There must be a cheaper way to do it.

Ah crap, you just jinxed yourself.

Same. Nor did I want laundry to accumulate twice as fast. :lol:
