    Not sure if serios....


    It's funny though, I know more about food than literally every person that has ever challenged me about it. I know how much carb damn near anything has, to a reasonable approximation. I've been doing this for 20+ years, you get fairly good at it. A bunch of my students thought it was interesting and started quizzing me about it, I knew pretty much everything they threw at me.

    Physiotherapy. Been trying to get movement back into my broken shoulder for 3 months now, with not a lot to show for it. Every degree of extra flex in the stretching sessions comes at the cost of teeth-grinding pain. Plus I can kiss goodbye to riding my bike for the rest of the year, something I'm really starting to miss.

    That's funny! A lot of native English speakers use this word. You even see well educated people using it from time to time. My guess is that it sounds right to people because it's similar to "irrespective." I like to say "irregardless" just because I think it's funny.

    I think we're all in agreeance that businessy types have been able to leverage this term synergistically, utilizing its full potential to gain traction at various price points. This term has been a real game changer. Correct use of the term should be part of everyone's skillset. I think your post will be very impactful, and I will shoot you an e-mail to follow up.

    On the artificial wife-crisis front:
    We had some nice coupons for some stuff we wanted, which expired today. I told my wife last weekend that I could go pick up the stuff, but I needed the coupons. She was "too busy" to look for them all week and I had absolutely no clue where she had put them. Come this morning, she more or less literally tears the house apart looking for them. Now we're going out of town for the weekend and it looks like vandals hit up the place. Taking five minutes any other day of the week would have avoided this whole thing, but hey, nothing gets done until it's a crisis!

    I don't dispute this. All I'm saying is some companies might go "well you don't want cheese, but we don't discount for having less than a 'standard' pizza".
