I got made fun of last month for double spacing after a period. Apparently it's a thing that "olds" do.

I’ve been punched in the gut twice in the last month by comedians and cancer. Norm was legendary. His English counterpart, Sean Lock, was also a massive loss.

They both leave so much joy and laughter to enjoy forever.

Fuck cancer.

He’s the king of :scrooge: with stuff like that. After the Mirage died he was just driving their old 90s Astro van to and from work, and then when my mom stopped driving he started using her mid/late-00s G35. Other car in the stable is a Camry that they bought for my sister to drive around in.
Before the Mirage he had an 85 MK2 diesel Golf that he finally replaced in 2000.
:dock: My dad had one of these when I was growing up as well, (I think MK2, I want to say it was an '82). That really was one of the most :scrooge: cars imagineable, 52 ponies and it just ran forever. I think my dad gave his to my older half sister circa 1996.
1982 would be Mk1.

:nice:

I haven't been in years, I don't think since I quit my old job. I used to go regularly for some time in the office there; I also had friends living there to stay with free for a weekend but they all moved back here as mentioned. You're making me want to set up a trip... kind of maxed out on PTO and travel :waxer: for now :doe:
My perspective might be skewed because I can't remember the last time I was in a big city, hell even Detroit. Legit, probably 3 years since I've been in a city. So NYC had a ton of novelty. People built it up to me to be this jam packed metropolis, and while it certainly is huge and there's people everywhere, it's just not that invasive on my personal experience. We didn't really plan anything, just set out in a direction and let our interests guide us. Lower Manhattan is cool, but so is central park and all the upper stuff. Chelsea was also dope, which is closest to the office, one day after work we just set out to see Chelsea and ended up at the flatiron building (that's under construction right now), but there was a dude playing blues guitar in the park right outside it and we listened to him then found some dank sushi on the way back. If you're into just exploring and letting the moment take you, it's a really cool place. I have no prior experience to say if and how it's changed, but it's easily my favorite big city I've ever been to. London, Paris, Shanghai, LA, SF, Chicago, none made me want to keep exploring like NYC.

Then again, I've been living in the middle of nowhere for a year, so any city is :impressive:
It sounds to me like it is a lot less crowded than pre COVID :lolol:

I ain't changing. It's a visual aid and it makes it easier to see the end of a sentence vs just a pause that a comma would give.

Either way is technically correct. However, I agree with you. Based on speech, including it makes a lot more sense, IMO.

Double spaces are annoying to read to me, plus they make editing and proofreading take more work.

I mean, you shouldn't. As far as I know though, either style is considered correct in modern English (motherfucker). So you are :notwrong:

When I was in editorial briefly, we axed double spaces for this reason alone.

Agreed, for the most part I lean left and there are a few exceptions that I may not seem like. Like masks, just to prove myself that I am on which wing seems silly imo and having to wear it outside all the time when theres literally not one person within a 100 meters around me.

For the funemployment, I mean Im all ok for someone who actually needs it for rent and only use it until they actually find a job, or takes care of the kid. Because face it, 1,800 bucks per month is not enough to pay for rent alone in my neck of the woods. But there are a couple that I know that actually takes fully advantage of it and can get a job if they want, kinda selfish tbh. Doesnt help with the fact of labor shortage and all that. For that reason in particular Im glad it ended and pretty soon the shortage may not be as much of a concern than it is now. I feel like there should be some sort of eligibility for getting approved for it.
There's an interesting thing about the employment issue that a contractor we hired made me aware of a few weeks ago. We hired a general contractor to rebuild a room on our house, and what should have taken a month has dragged on for 4 now. He's been great with communication and very apologetic, he said he just can't find people.

One of the dudes he sent out used to own his own general contracting business. The guy was really intelligent, did great work, and was super chatty. He said he was forced to shut down most of his own business because he can't find anyone to work with him. He's offering people $30/hr CASH at the end of the day to just help him carry tools, run errands, hold things, just be a helper. Unskilled, simple work that any human in decent physical shape could do. I told him that I thought that was great money and I was shocked he couldn't find anyone and I blamed unemployment. He said it has nothing to do with unemployment, instead pointed blame at the legalization of cannabis. He said he could count 10 people that he's lost in the last 12 months to growing and selling pot.

It turns out that in my local area in northern MI where space is abundant, unskilled people THINK that growing and selling cannabis is a much easier and faster way to economic prosperity than working a job for someone else. The reality is that it's actually quite labor intensive to do it at the scale required to replace normal income streams, but everyone up here knows someone personally with a crazy operation that clears a quarter mil annually selling pot. Those stories are motivating people, and legalization made law enforcement turn a blind eye to this activity, whether it's being done legally or not.

I'd be fascinated to see if there's any sort of correlation between the lack of low skilled labor and legalization of cannabis.
Jesus!! Yeah I remember Michigan legalized marijuana and all the :millennial: jumped into the business rather than doing honest work. Also I honestly think that has to do with lot of millennials seem to move to larger cities more as well. I have definitely noticed more transplants in DC than before. I also remember when I just got my mk7, I remember on golfmk7 where theres some dude in Colorado started his weed business (when they legalized it at the time), he was rolling in a mk4 r32 before that and he got a :gorf: shortly after his business somehow took off. Maybe that guy knew what he was doing, but I feel like a lot of millennials went like "you know what, I could be good at this", etc.

This, soo much this on the last paragraph. Which political side is like joining a sports team. Same with vaccinated vs unvaccinated. Losing friendships for opposite beliefs is just silly. I could go on and on about this.
I find it incredibly sad.
I also feel like this is more of a childish mentality than anything.

The dude I bought my house from legit clears $200k+ in cannabis sales. He also spent $20k on converting his basement into a grow operation, and spends every single waking minute tending to the operation, all while hiring people to help trim, harvest, package, and distribute. It's a massive amount of work that I think a lot of kids underestimate.

Another :mindblown: thing is these folks can't put this money into the banking industry, so they buy whatever they can with cash. Some dealers will take cash for a car, which is why they tend to be rolling in some nice vehicles...like the MK7 dude. My buddy buys and sells cars, golf carts, boats, etc to effectively launder the cash.

I mean, it certainly can be a legitimate business, but running a business is also very difficult. One won't just be great at growing, marketing, selling, and managing weed because they enjoy smoking it :lolol:

Maybe that guy knew what he was doing, but I feel like a lot of millennials went like "you know what, I could be good at this", etc.
I support legalized marijuana, prosecuting people for it was stupid, but in general the business does not draw John Glenn 110% honest day's work for an honest day's pay types. And that's the legal side. With every legalized state is a shadow industry of illegal growers, frequently foreign criminals. In our neck of the woods, Russians and Laotians, in particular, find that getting licenses and paying taxes on MJ sales are hoops they would rather not jump through. It has become a bit of a scourge in certain rural areas. Better than meth I guess.
