Grandpa just had a possible stroke after getting surgery done a couple days ago, sigh. I truly hate to say this but he’s showing those signs if you know what I mean.
My uncle had a stroke many many years ago while on the operation table for a by-pass. Afterwards he could only speak in 2 or 3 word sentences and his vocabulary was very limited. He still lived a another 20 years. Don't give up hope.

If gas is going to be going up $0.05 every day then minimum wage better be $15 an hour soon. The promise about student debt is not going to become a reality as stated the other day by the president.

I work in the oil and gas industry. Right now prices are spiking because of the severe cold much of the country has been experiencing. Demand has increased dramatically so prices are following for Oil, Gasoline, and Natural gas. Long term, this will probably continue as the new Administration moves toward green energy and cutting oil and gas leases and pipelines. If we don't get it here, we will begin relying on foreign oil and gas again and prices will continue to increase. Not a political statemen but just facts and law of supply and demand.

So not to get too serious or deep here but every year during cane or tornado season we get the "tall are bad people wishing for severe weather that hurts and kills people". Its happened on every forum I've ever been on. How come it's ok to wish for winter weather with arguably destroys thousands of cars and injures or kills people at equally high numbers. Saw a stat that said something like 180k ER visits a year due to ice and snow falls. Current death toll in Texas alone is 58. Just as severe as any hurricane or tornado outbreaks.

Currently at work we have a guy out who slipped and broke his leg back in the January snow.

Cold kills more people than heat each year . It doesn’t matter to me at the end of the day though. I like extremes , not all extremes though I’d like to experience here . I like extreme cold , but not in NC. I’d take it somewhere that’s accustomed to it like Montana . Extreme snow is cool as well but again somewhere that it’s normal at like the Sierra Nevada in California . Extreme heat and drought in the desert etc. Here in Raleigh I root for extreme storms generally !

I personally don’t understand the polar bears on here who would take snow year round . I always wondered if there was a bit of a correlation between weather preference and personality . For example , some one who is super introverted may prefer cold snowy , rainy weather that’s cozy and keeps everyone inside . Whereas an extrovert may prefer extreme weather , or warm weather in general . I think there may be a bit of a positive correlation there.

The people who fuss at the weenies with the old and tired "You wishing for someone to die?" argument are letting their emotions get the best of them. They are worried / scared of the weather and are speaking irrationally. No one wants anyone to be hurt or lose their house / livelihood, but we are all weather enthusiasts and want to see it reach 155+mph...

What's the music in this commercial? It's been driving me crazy for months. Sorry about the poor quality of the video, it's the only copy I've been able to find on Youtube.

I know the song instrumentals but not the song title but I do remember hearing saying "do the ..." I just don't know what it was.

Oh my goodness @SD @Lickwx @Myfrotho704_ the content filter my strict dad put on my phone just blocked that page of the whamby because of the text in the posts 😆 😆
I wish my dad did that to me . Maybe I would have been saved ! See I got introduced to pornography when I was 11 by my animal science teacher who thought it would be funny to show us animals mating videos until a fricken human one came up. I remember feeling guilty and telling my mom when I was 11 about how I watched porn.
