Kids Can Swipe a Screen But Can't Use LEGOs

neo-mkrey Minecraft is the new Lego (353 comments)

Both my kids were heavy into Legos up until about a year ago.

What happened?

They discovered Minecraft.
They are still building (virtual) things and using their imagination and problem solving skills.

I now save hundreds of dollars a year not buying Legos.

I prefer to call her a cunt -- but to each his own.

She should have just kept her legs open and her mouth shut.

I truly feel I get my money's worth out of this. The same can not said of my overpriced ISP and my overpriced cell phone service.

neo-mkrey Re:Lunar orbit? (38 comments)

I was thinking the same thing, except I don't even want them that close. Fling them towards the sun and be done with it.

California Fights Drought With Data and Psychology, Yielding 5% Usage Reduction

neo-mkrey Here in WI we're required to keep a running faucet (362 comments)

For the past two weeks the town I live in and many other towns have issued a "please keep one faucet running in your house at all times" plea. This is so that water keeps running through the pipes outside so they done freeze and burst. Pipes that are 14 feet deep, BTW. Tell me more about global warming, please.
