re: The most watched movie in U.S. theaters - dewster
I'm honestly not that upset that Hollywood's film industry is struggling these days. They have framed every villain as some kind of "evilcorp" or a military entity.....when corporate America isn't even close to as disgusting and rotten as Hollywood has gotten over the years. ...

re: Racetrac is my go-to gas station. - dewster
Sheetz Brothers was the big, clean, and nicer gas station chain when I lived in Pittsburgh. They take their gas station food pretty seriously up there. Well, as seriously as Pennsylvania takes food anyways. They usually have a solid coffee bar, plenty of clean gas pumps, and sometimes a Telsa S...

re: Surprising number of EV owners switch back to gas power, study says - dewster
Was really excited about the Cybertruck until I saw a 250 mile range. I'm going to need at least 350. I'd rather just buy a cheap Japanese gasoline pickup truck or keep my 4Runner around forever. ...

re: Racial breakdown of vaccinated individuals - dewster
[quote]Funny how so many Americans do not know how statistics work. [/quote] 8% of the people vaccinated are black, which is not great considering that's 12% of the US population, but it's also not alarming either. But the media likely misleads people into thinking that only 8% of black peo...

re: Serious question - Sam's Club or COSTCO? - dewster
[quote]I'm pissed that Sams didn't have the marinated Salmon fillets in the Gulfport store. They now have Members Mark salmon fillets. Not cool. [/quote] This is why I hate Costco and Sams. Shopping there is frustrating if you have a list of items to obtain. Half the time they aren't carrying ...

He was standing in the high grove to fish. Must have been really into it, because that looks like prime alligator territory to me. I'd rather sit on a pier with a few beers anyways....
