I'm more worried about jets flying
thru the areas of denser info.



I'm flying cross country in a couple weeks.

I'm gonna check out all your browser histories.

I think Evenbob has cracked the case... all those planes flying overhead aren't spraying Chemtrails, they're laying down Internet.

I'm not sure to what degree this is a real thing or to what degree it exists mainly in my paranoid mind. It has existed in the past at old downtown properties.

I don't like, upon check-in, getting assigned a "single male" room. By that I mean, I believe single males who don't say they're with someone or need two keys, but just state "one person, one key," automatically get the room at the end of the hallway, as far from the elevator as possible, or get the room not renovated (because single males don't care, I guess), or get the room with the defunct air/heat unit (because we're tough?). I swear it's a real thing. Unless I specifically say, "near the elevator," or "not the dive room," single guys checking in (not wearing sports coats) are going to get assigned the bottom of whatever room ranking is available.

I have found you do not get a better rate by indicating "one person" ... so my advice is, quit doing that!

Hear I go again. I rarely watch TV, like
an hour a day, maybe. 6 commercials
in the break. A black couple and paper
towels, Asians buying a car, racially
mixed teens (no whites) w/candy bars,
Asian/Black couple at Lowes, Black
fam at Popeyes. The only White was
the 6th one, it was a guy acting like
a loon in a fast food joint.

Is this advertising now? Whites are
still the majority, they figure we'll
be so jazzed at how racially inclusive
all these companies are we'll go
sobbing all the way to buy their
products?

No, its just the racially marginalized will be vocal if those ads don't feature them.

I was told by a black man that black people love Popeye's, so it makes sense they would cater to a black demographic.

Non-Hispanic whites make up 60% of the country, so yes, we're the majority still, but just barely. We won't be for much longer. Get used to it. Otherwise, you might have to take the advice I heard recently from a well-known orator regarding America.... "If they don't love it, tell 'em to leave it."

Come to Oklahoma.... all our car commercials feature rich white Christians.

Why wouldn't you just breathe through your mouth for those 20 minutes?
