    Well, I guess that means I have to take mine off. We can't both wear them in the same thread.

    I still think about my dad in some way nearly every day. I don't think or care about his remains at all.

    I realize this puts me in a tiny minority of human kind, but there you are.
    Years ago my brother and I took my father’s ashes (no urn!) back to Florida where we used to go fishing when we were kids. My dad always dreamed of catching a big tarpon but never even got a little one. So we hired his favorite captain from back in the day and we picked a beautiful spot in front of one of the hundreds of tiny islands (keys) in Tampa Bay to spread his ashes. Found out afterwards from the captain that we had unknowingly sent my father to the sea in front of Tarpon Key.

    My mom wanted to be cremated. Fine. Then they tried to sell us one of several really nice, several thousand dollar coffins.

    To cremate her in.

    We went with a cardboard one. Still absurdly expensive for a cardboard box, but she would have been happy with our decision.

    Ticketmaster fees.

    I went to buy a ticket to Genesis, absurdly priced, and Ticketmaster wanted $70 to process the ticket.

    I'm not going.

    So you were opposed to Throwing it all Away? Don't blame you. They were always expensive but I guess they are now making up for all of the lost revenue over the past year+.

    Can't you see this is the Land of Confusion.

    Any chance to buy at the box office? Is that still a thing?

    The threaded coaxial cable connector.

    The worst invention of all time, and the guy who came up with it is on my permanent s#%t list.

    Because having one million threads per inch just seemed so perfect.
