1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Thomas' description is the one I've heard. I've also heard the "heart stops" thing, but not in the context of it being the reason we say "bless you."


    I do, too.

    I assumed everyone does this, but maybe not.

    The root of my question had more to do with who the eff doesn't just wear their seatbelt?

    When I sneeze, I try to spray on as many people's faces as I can. My cheeks feel great as I shake my head from side to side and the force of the sneeze makes them flap about like a dog's with its head out the window.

    Then I say "bless you" to all whom I've sprayed. It's the only polite thing to do, really.

    I don't think I've sneezed in the last several years. Perhaps I'm not able to sneeze anymore.

    I've never seen my parents wear a seatbelt. They argue with me over it.

    You are missing out. Try looking at the sun. (I mean not too long and too directly, of course.)

    People who are looking for a parking spot on a downtown street where traffic was barely moving fast enough to make the needle on the speedometer move. I'm extremely diligent about wearing my seatbelt, but it was just dumb luck that a bunch of cops happened to be standing on the corner on the same evening I thought, "I'm not going to get into a terrible wreck doing 5 MPH while looking for a place to park, so I'll go ahead and take off my seatbelt so my shirt doesn't wrinkle right before I go out for the evening."

    Wait. Breaking a rib while sneezing is not that rare? :censored: All these years I sort of thought I was special for doing that.

    I've written a letter to Commissioner Bud Selig requesting that he void the result of the NLCS on the ground that the Giants' regular season victories were aided by Melky Cabrera. They shouldn't have even been in the playoffs because those wins should have been voided, like they do in college football. I need Selig to reply to me and to the nation by the time the game starts tonight, but he's been avoiding me. As the band Rush would say, by choosing not to decide, he is still deciding. (Hoping Selig is reading this so he will get on the ball.)

    work was a little frustrating today, and for some reason I made a bunch of paper airplanes to chuck at my office wall while listening to a conference call. I'm still at the office but the cleaning crew is in here early and some guy blasted in, picked up all of the planes, and then gave me a weird look before departing.

    Don't worry. 10 minutes ago, a woman from the cleaning crew blasted in to the bathroom while I was doing the thing we aren't supposed to talk about anymore in this thread (but it involves blasting).

    One of my closest friends was supposed to come up with his family for my son's birthday party this weekend (they live about eight hours away). Problem is, this friend, despite being a really good guy, is one of the least reliable human beings I've ever met. That being the case, the missus and I have been trying to stay in touch and get updates over the weeks since he mentioned coming up in the hopes that we'd know ahead of time if plans fell through. It looked like he was actually going to make it happen, so we've tried to do stuff to accommodate them, but I found out a couple of days ago that their plans might change. He's supposed to be here tomorrow. I just got in touch with him to get a definitive answer as to whether we should expect them, and it turns out he still isn't certain they're coming.

    What the hell? You're supposed to be on the road in like 12 hours. How is this not decided?

    A good excuse to cancel hasn't happened yet. Give it time. We've all got friends like this.

    Here's the thing: not everyone takes commitments the way we do. There is quite a bit of literature on the type of people like your friend, the type of people that are late for every meeting, etc. It basically percolates down to insecurity and/or a false sense of worth. So I guess you should cut him some slack but not count on him to be there.
