    We did the “pick it up yourself” thing, thereby avoiding the extra delivery fee. A couple of local places made that both easy and reasonably like eating out for quality.

    Look up “economic cost-value curve”. For most categories, the price curve versus value is hyperbolic. I like the example of the price of a bottle of wine (I like wine): Two Buck Chuck is (barely) tolerable. By going to a $10 bottle, I notice a distinct increase in value: It tastes not just “better” but “much better”. $20 per bottle is also noticeably better than $10, and I’m well enough off (and drink little enough wine) that it’s worth it for me to buy that wine for “everyday”. By the time you get to $40 per bottle, though, I may have trouble noticing the difference. There are some wines in that price range that seem worth it to me as a special treat. But our rich friend buys $120/bottle wine. It’s very good. Better even than the $40 stuff, but no way will I be spending that kind of money for something that’s barely better according to my palate.

    You can, of course, believe what you want to believe. As can I. What I WILL not believe is that the information provided by those sites is reality oriented.

    PS. The media bias site that I use is spot on, in my observation, about the few sites that I visit that it rates. I invite you to find your own source for an estimate of media bias, and find out what THEY say.

    PPS: Your fantasy that Reuters is left wing is risible.

    Some of the testing was done using cells derived from the fetal cells harvested from either abortions or umbilical blood after a birth. Some people say that means that the vaccines are polluted by the testing process. MOST of those “some people” are simply using the excuse. I’m in favor of religious exemption ONLY if you then go into your religion’s form of spiritual AND PHYSICAL isolation until you come to your senses or die of old age.

    Precisely.

    “That’s why it’s a good idea to drill down, not up.”

    True, but only if you’re not trying to drill up into a wall space. I had actually marked the location, showed him the mark, then crawled away. He, it turned out, looked away to find his bit and when he turned back, he found something he claimed he thought was the mark about 10 inches south of the mark I gave him.

    Yeah. We probably spend less eating out than folks who eat at fast-“food” places even though the meals cost 10X or more the amount. Because we go out 20X or more fewer times.

    I use a blocker called “Fluff Busting Purity”. But I also simply ignore the ads. FB gets to count me as having seen them (they’re on the page) but I click one of them about twice a decade.

    Year ‘round shorts seem to be a thing pretty much everywhere except where the temp drops so low that you can get frost bite. Son prefers shorts year around (lows where he lives get down to the teens several times in winter). I get cold just THINKING about going outside in shorts except when the temp’s above 80º F. Genetics is weird.

    I never became a teacher, but was interested. When I began to do the research, I decided that no matter what, I was incompetent to deal with middle schoolers.
