    The University of Miami revealed their new football uniforms. There are four of them, and each has a name (Juice, Surge, Smoke, and Stormtrooper. No I am not kidding.) What the hell why does each individual uniform need a name now?

    Ain't gonna lie, those unis are pretty good. Too bad they belong to an awful program that's impossible to cheer for

    British culture has gone downhill since the days of Terry-Thomas.

    Front-loading washing washing machines. Wtf is the point of having a machine that makes it more difficult to put the clothes into and then you can't open once you start the cycle? I've never used one but the house we rented a few weeks ago had one and I never wanted to do laundry again with that piece of shit.

    You can definitely open them mid cycle. I can't recall how it worked with the first one we owned, but the one we have now has a pause button designed for just that feature.

    As for why, they're much more efficient, for one. They use a lot less water and detergent than top-load washers. However, more importantly to the SF crowd is that they're dramatically gentler on clothes.

    We've had two front-load washers over the last 7.5 years, and my clothes seriously do not wear out. They last forever. It actually kind of sucks sometimes because I can never use the, "I need this because mine is wearing out" excuse to justify buying an updated or better-quality version.

    As for ease of use, it hasn't ever really bothered me to bend over for 10 seconds, but I know they make stands to move them up some.

    ^ hmmmm. Well I have limited experience with just the one that was in this place in Venice (CA). I didn't realize they are gentler on the clothes. I'm sure it wasn't top of the line anyway, but once it started I found an extra sock and wanted to throw it in but I couldn't open the door. Wouldn't all the water and shit come out if you opened it? I dunno… maybe I'll find a nicer one and be convinced. I guess I have a weird fondness for being able to open the top and see all my clothes sloshing around in there. :happy:

    Far more disturbing to me, and interesting, is that there's a Senate hearing room in one of the office buildings with the same type of sign. There's a door up there with a big sign, in all caps, saying "NOT THE CLOAKROOM" (the cloakroom is the antechamber Senators use to go in and out of hearings). I always wondered how many Senators stumbling into some poor staffer's office, janitorial closet, or whatever the hell that room is it takes to get a sign like that. I always get a laugh whenever I walk by it.
