I know that feeling.

I regularly self examine my stomach by putting my hand down my throat searching around for ulcers.

The acids take their toll on my hand and, until it heals, my fingers have terrible feeling.

I once saw an episode on PBS where plants being attacked by leaf chewing caterpillars sent out chemical distress signals.
And flying insects that liked to munch on caterpillars flew in like the cavalry in western movies.
Today, I peeled an orange.
The air was filled of an orange-y smell.
Now I wonder if that orange was screaming "Help! I'm being skinned alive and about to be eaten!"
That's pretty messed up. lol

Because it's more cost effective to make one ATM and use them for both walk up and drive up regardless of their visual capabilities.

Why haven't we programmed cars to restrict slow drivers from getting into the fast lanes on the highways?

Not the first time I've heard that.

And if history is anything to learn from, it won't be the last.

I probably shouldn't say this, but damn the Royal frigates and full free speech speed ahead.

It's a bit complicated so you have to bear with me.

When a pirate makes a score, they return to port.

After divvying up the loot to the crew, what's left over is the booty.

A financially wise pirate Captain takes that booty and issues it out in the form of loans with healthy interest repayments.

Some people might call that loan sharking (note the nautical theme there). Others might call them credit card companies.

But there are times when the pirate Captain needs to call in those loans earlier than expected to purchase rum for his next adventure.

The actual technical phrase is much longer than Thag with a baseball bat can remember so it was shortened to "booty call."

But time changes the meaning of such phrases and is now misconstrued in rap songs to bar closed, struck out, quicky sex for old times sake.

Well, there's no controversy if Obamacare covers Viagra or Cialis.

Anything that let's patriots stand up tall and proud in the face of intimidating power is just fine.

And he isn't talking about outlawing liquor, so I guess you can drink a stiff one to get the bad taste of his presidency out of your mouth.

The former tries to be sneaky about gathering info on you.
With Facebook, all they did was ask and many freely surrendered their privacy.
Toss is a privacy policy "promise", you'll get even more people.
Nah, they are in bed together. Facebook is the girl and NSA is the guy, or is it the other way around? So if the NSA takes Facebook out and dines and flatters her well, she might let him access her "cookies."

Maybe the blind don't know they are drive-up machines and so they end up there. The worst example is the restaurants that place braille menus up high on the signage behind the sales counter. If they could see to read that, since they certainly cannot feel it, then they don't need it.

I would say both are gender neutral.

One gathers information you freely provide to sell secretly.

The other gathers information secretly to gauge threats against facebook to be free to gather information to sell secretly.

It's because it's cheaper to tool up the machinery to produce just one type of key pad.

Like the TV show?

Tony Randall (super clean cut. sings 76 rusty trombones come marching in) and Jack Klugman (messy. performs autopsies to figure out what went wrong instead of preventative care).
