So help me FSM, I'd have taken a flamethrower to the room. Probably with her in it.
Playing devil's advocate, the kid did start her period at nine frigging years old, and her room has never been cleaned at that house, which is more of a parenting fail than anything. Not excusing her, because that's gross as hell, but I don't think it was 14, 15, 16 year old SIL doing that. More like 9 or 10.
Aaaahhh! So they're used pads from TEN YEARS AGO? In a way, that's even worse.

Simpson's fans--Matt Groening's mom just died. It's clear where he got some of his character names and inspiration from:

Well, at best they're 2.5 years old, since that's how long it's been since she's lived there. At least I can sorta justify that 9 year olds are generally gross on principle.

Aw, sorry your mom died, Matt,b ut she was freakin 94! That's old! Good for her!

I once wrote a nice letter to Matt back before the Simpsons were on the air, and he sent me a bunch of free stuff.(This was in the days of his "Life is hell," "school is hell," etc.)

Now I'm curious, at what point does a bloody pad become ... does it get moldy? What happens?

Ooh, and one more fun SIL story. Cover your eyes, boys, this one ain't pretty. Trumps any of the nasty stuff we found in her room at our house, any day of the...month?
My MIL has apparently FINALLY taken to gutting SIL's room at their house. Guess what she finds in SIL's closet? Again, spoiler alert, this is gross. Multiple pairs of underwear with used maxipads still attached! Ta daaaa! We have a contender for Hoarders. Just...couldn't be bothered to wrap those up and put them in the garbage, we'll just chuck the whole mess in the closet.
And, their house smells like smoke and cat so much that the smell of...that...was not even noticed. Awesome!

Ok, I gotta change the subject.

I know next to nothing about hockey, but I know that it is a really physically taxing sport. This guy amazes me.

Sounds like a question for Loose Canon, right?

I would think the blood would just dry up. Thinking about the times they find old blood in crime scenes on TV. No that's not real, but...

IIRC, we paid about 30 bucks to get in and then played unlimited video games for 8 hours, breaking for lunch to eat at Ed's. Not really a good business model on their end, affordable fun for poor college students.
Maybe I'm not understanding you, but it sounds like you're saying it was a bad business model in the sense that they were not making money cause they were not charging enough and that $30 is a bargain. I think that's crazy. I think that's a lot to charge. The way I see it, not many people are going to go spend $30 to play video games if they have to play per game. To me, you get more people in and paying $30 with the promise of unlimited play. Certainly more people that would pay $30 a la carte.

I have no idea where in Chicago your Disney Quest was, but ours is at Downtown Disney, which is in the middle of Disney's own entertainment/nightlife property(Cirque du Soleil, House of Blues, Planet Hollywood, lots of restaurants and shops, huge movie theater, bowling alley, hot air balloon, boat rides(and that's just some of the stuff on 1/3 of the property. Lots of tourists. Free shuttle buses and boats to and from the Disney hotels. I'd bet more people would think less about dropping $30pp for this kind of thing while on vacation than they would for a local attraction. I only went cause I had free passes.

Oh, and like everything Disney, the current cost is always higher than you remember.

$46 for adults
$40 for kids

At least its free parking there. Go to one of the outdoor theme parks and its $14 a car.

No!

Some plants I ordered came today. Why couldn't they come during the weekend? Eh, they'll keep until I get to them on Friday. They're in little pots.

Freaky. Watching Hawaii Five-O. Story about a girl kidnapped 10 year ago found dead. Breaking news at the bottom of the screen. Girl kidnapped 10 years ago found alive today.

I'm recording Hawaii Five-O, but I've been reading the article about the women they found. 3 of them who were abducted over 10 years ago. I can't imagine what their families are feeling tonight.

What I don't get is that the foreign news sites (Australia and the UK) have articles on this that are a couple of hours old, but it is just breaking in the US. Um, this is happening in Ohio, so how are they releasing the story so much faster?

Maybe you just have not looked in hte right place. I actually saw a news clip earlier this evening posted to Facebook BEFORE I watched the show. Looked like 5 o-clock local news. Was just extra freaky when that's what the tv show story was about and then the news scrolled across the screen.
