Interesting idea, but there's something wholly unnatural about the idea of playing hockey through the hottest summer months. It's weird enough when the playoffs stretch into spring. I would, however, probably watch more basketball if it spanned the summer, instead of competing directly with hockey and football. » 8/28/14 1:08pm Thursday 1:08pm

To be fair, Timmy's hasn't made a decent doughnut in years, but here in Canada, it's be a quiet, slow decline in quality. You 'muricans want everything faster - we'll probably get this abomination in 2-3 years, eh. » 8/27/14 2:28pm Wednesday 2:28pm

Connor, next time try the indoor hammock. All you have to do is mount the hardware, and bam! Comfortable sleep, and need to make the bed in the morning? Hang it with carabiners - unclip one side from the wall, clip it to the other side, and the problem goes away! » 8/26/14 2:45pm 8/26/14 2:45pm

As a not-unusually tall person (6'1"), I would pledge my unending loyalty to any airline to remove the reclining option from their "economy" section.

This reminds me of an old "recipe" I had in college that I dubbed Poor Student Soup. I would get a pound of pork fat from the local grocer (no charge), cube it and cook it (I justified this by likening it to chicharrones), and then dumping the fatty chunks into a family-sized container of KFC gravy. » 9/04/13 12:10pm 9/04/13 12:10pm

I still can't do it. The flash of black between pages - even if it's only every ten pages or so now - is just too distracting. It throws me out of the reading material and refocuses me on the hardware in my hands. No thanks. I'll keep with my battery-sucking, but black-flash-free phone app on my phone. » 9/03/13 2:05pm 9/03/13 2:05pm
