    But people piss in pools. What about that? What keeps them honest. Definitely not the fish.

    There's cameras installed all over the pool. Aside from that, I dunno, the owners just don't want mud and shit ruining the clear water and I can't really blame 'em.

    Gran Torino is one of my favourite dramas. It's not quite as good as Boyz n the Hood, being that they deal with fairly similar subjects, but it's still a great film.

    Think that should go in the B'aww thread.

    TOMD: My middle child has been sick with a stomach bug, and he just come running up to me crying and apologized.

    "Dad, I was in the kitchen and I messed myself."

    I figured he had dropped something out of the fridge and then I smelled him.

    I wish he'd went and found his mother instead.

    I have never seen anything like that. Neat to know it exists.

    I mean, the fish piss in the pool too. So I'd assume they'd have filters that clean that sort of thing out of the water.

    Human piss and fish piss are totally different I would think. There is a reason why we frown on pumping human waste into the ocean.

    Are you saying my piss is inferior?

    Depends on your conditions for inferiority. Human piss is more concentrated compared to fish piss. Because there's a lot of water around fish.

    TOMD: I was contemplating life while stacking boxes at work. I always thought I was lagging behind everyone else, my peers, the world in general. I realized that I'm not.

    I rent a room in a flat that's slowly but surely falling apart, sharing the bathroom with 4 other people. I work a shitty minimum wage job while waiting for my college classes to resume, which I attend with the goal of earning a largely inconsequential degree. I eat cheap insta meals because I'm too lazy or fucking tired to cook. My free time is spent on Netflix and Reddit. My social life is almost entirely confined to the Internet. When people ask me when I'm going to find a girlfriend, I respond that I can't afford one right now. I'm baffled by peers who are getting married and having kids at my age. The only way I could be even more of a millennial is if I owned a pair of hipster pants in a groovy color- oh wait, got that covered too.

    I truly am a modern man, the concentrated essence of my generation.

    Pfft. How man
    Pfft. Come at me when you're spending more on avocados than rent. Then we'll talk.

    TOMD: Finishing stories.

    Avocado?

    Fruit?

    I hate fruit.

    Avocado isn't a fruit, its an abomination. @Xiph0 tortures me with his consumption of them all the time.

    They're also expensive depending on where you live. I assume Joe is measuring his wealth in over priced condiment fruit with zero taste, or its an implication that you're not truly as millennial as you think you are. You need free-trade coffee, gluten free pasta, and organic cotton hipster pants before you can come at him.

    TOMD: Reading @Joe 's books.

    There was an article in AUS that said that Millennials aren't able to buy houses because they spend their money on frivolous things, like buying artisanal avocado sandwiches (or melts or whatever) and eating out all the time, instead of buying food from the grocery store and cooking it in their house to save money.

    TOMD : I didn't realize when I bought it, but since the hurricane my car has turned into the most expensive generator I've ever seen, about $15k.

    People around here in Florida turn their car on to charge their phone and sit in the A.C. I guess it isn't a waste of gas per se but still...

    Some wanker keyed my car while I was in work today.

    It's a 2007 Ka, and I'm not massively attached to it (other than how much easier having a car makes everything), but I'm still absolutely fucking fuming over it.

    There's no point reporting it, because there's no CCTV , and no way of catching whoever did it. It's not too deep, so I can probably sort it myself, but still infuriating

    Start making a list of anyone you've slighted and then punch them in the face for good measure.

    Also they sell cheap rubbing compound for vehicles that will remove the affected layer of paint. Usually keys only make it through the clear coat. So rub it out and reseal. They even sell kits.

    Got bored and had an hour to kill, so redesigned my site. Had great fun paging through "hacker" stock photos.
