I met Craig Kurtz near the end of 7th grade. I was at my school, and it
was either after school, or on a weekend. I had my Fender Bronco and
a book with a thousand guitar chords. Craig was two years older. We
wrote a song that day. He had wandered by and saw me with the guitar,
and I composed the guitar part to his lyrics. We ended up playing in a
band for a couple of years.

Soon after we met, we discovered that we both were into Mott the
Hoople, a band most folks hadn't even heard of. That dumbass went
and signed up for the US Navy, but before he left for basic, he had met
this girl, and he told me to keep an eye on her. That's like asking the
cat to keep an eye on the canary.

Like John, Craig was kind of a failure as a man, so he briefly tried being
a woman. I was *very* surprised when he turned up here. The only thing
I can think of is that he Googled his own name and got a hit that was a
post here. I didn't have contact info, and I know that he dislikes me more
than he dislikes John. He had called me back in (I think) 2007, and when
I answered he asked, "Do you know who this is?" Even though I had no
contact with him for about 25 years, his voice was very characteristic,
and I said, Craig Kurtz. I think he wanted to shock me with his whole trans
thing, and I think that I disappointed him by not being phased. When I
tried to contact him a few years later, he ignored me, which is fine. All I
wanted to do was send him a copy of The Bonobos' CD, as we'd played in
a band together when we were teenagers.

Krap moo must have been a really bad beef dish.

I still like that song a lot.

I had an English teacher in high school who in hindsight was highly
influential on me politically, he was quite left wing and we discussed
politics in class. He was in a band, they used to perform for us in
the classroom. They eventually had a number one hit in Australia:


Same time and place, I used to watch these guys rehearse in a vacant
shop:
They later became an
iconic Australian band. Musically not really my thing though.

Biden Can’t Remember What He Promised on Covid-19 Testing

On the menu today: I would prefer to send you off into the holidays with Christmas cheer, but unfortunately, the news this morning is grim. Roughly one year after Joe Biden pledged, “I’m not going to shut down the country, I’m not going to shut down the economy, I’m going to shut down the virus!” the country is experiencing new Covid-driven shutdowns, and the virus is not shut down. Biden says he wishes he had ordered 500 million tests two months ago, forgetting that he pledged to deliver 300 million tests three months ago.

Biden’s Covid-Testing Stumble

As he did during the Afghanistan-withdrawal debacle, President Biden has turned to ABC News for a formal sit-down interview to do damage control. And while the president did not indignantly bark, “That was four or five days ago, man!” he didn’t exactly put on a command performance, either:

“Three days before Christmas, if you look out across the country, you see it everywhere, these long lines, people waiting for hours outside in the cold, just to get tested, to be reassured before they spend time with their family,” Muir said. “If you go to the pharmacy, we hear this over and over again, empty shelves, no test kits. Is that a failure?”

“I don’t think it’s a failure,” Biden replied. “I think it’s — you could argue that we should have known a year ago, six months ago, two months ago, a month ago.”

“I wish I had thought about ordering” 500 million at-home tests “two months ago,” he told Muir.

That statement isn’t just the usual presidential excuse-making; it’s another sign that Biden does not remember what he said, promised, pledged, or announced earlier. Recall that Biden’s vaccine mandate gave companies the option of testing employees once a week — which was going to dramatically increase the need for Covid-19 tests. Back in his big announcement of a vaccine mandate for employers in September, Biden pledged that Americans would find Covid-19 tests plentiful and cheap, if not free:

From the start, America has failed to do enough Covid-19 testing. In order to better detect and control the Delta variant, I’m taking steps tonight to make testing more available, more affordable, and more convenient. I’ll use the Defense Production Act to increase production of rapid tests, including those that you can use at home.

While that production is ramping up, my administration has worked with top retailers, like Walmart, Amazon, and Kroger’s and tonight we’re announcing that, no later than next week, each of these outlets will start to sell at-home rapid test kits at cost for the next three months. This is an immediate price reduction for at-home test kits for up to 35 percent reduction.

We’ll also expand — expand free testing at 10,000 pharmacies around the country. And we’ll commit — we’re committing $2 billion to purchase nearly 300 million rapid tests for distribution to community health centers, food banks, schools, so that every American, no matter their income, can access free and convenient tests. This is important to everyone, particularly for a parent or a child — with a child not old enough to be vaccinated. You’ll be able to test them at home and test those around them.

And then at the beginning of this month, Biden boasted:

This winter, we are going to make free at-home tests more available to Americans than ever before. To better detect and control the Delta variant, I made testing more available, affordable, and convenient. I used the Defense Production Act to increase production of rapid tests, including at-home tests. . . for those not covered by private insurance, we’re going to make available free tests at thousands of convenient locations — locations for folks to pick them up and take a test kit home. . . .

The bottom line: This winter, you’ll be able to test for free in the comfort of your home and have some peace of mind.

But the number of test results reported nationally Tuesday was just over 1.6 million — which was about the same number of test results as earlier in the month, and about the same number of test results as in September when the Delta variant wave was hitting, and fewer than testing stretches running from December 2020 to the end of January 2021.

Demand for testing is way up, but the number of test results being reported isn’t up much at all — which suggests that the overall number of tests available hasn’t increased significantly. Some of that might reflect people taking at-home tests and not reporting those results, but . . . you would think the long lines outside public testing sites we’re seeing would cause the total number of test results to jump.

If you look at local news this morning, it’s the same story all over — people can’t find tests on the shelves of stores, and open appointments for those free tests are few and far between — from Houston, Texas, to Cleveland, Ohio, to Santa Cruz, Calif., to Stamford and Waterford, Conn.

As for Biden’s pledge this week that 500 million new Covid-19 tests are on the way and will start arriving in January, today’s New York Times suggests that’s the most optimistic timetable:

Mr. Biden’s administration has not yet signed a contract to buy the tests, and the website to order them will not be up until January. Officials have not said how many tests people will be able to order or how quickly they will be shipped once they begin to be available next month. Manufacturers say they are already producing tests as fast as they can. . . . Whether testing manufacturers can now ramp up to produce an extra 500 million at-home tests — and how soon — is unclear.”

(When you post about an inability to find tests in your area on social media, there’s always some schmo who will respond, “They’re easy to find in my area!” Well, that’s great for you. Maybe your corner of the country has low demand, or your neck of the woods just had a shipment arrive. That doesn’t change the fact that large swaths of America’s densely populated areas can’t find any tests. It’s not that people aren’t looking hard enough, and this is not a vast media conspiracy to make President Biden look bad. Sheesh.)

I don’t want to sound too similar to my colleagues David Harsanyi, Michael Brendan Dougherty, and Phil Klein, but the glaring question remains: Why does President Biden seem to focus upon every topic under the sun except what he can control, which is the performance of the executive branch of the federal government? The one part of the pandemic Biden can exert some control over is the FDA and how quickly it can run its approval process for new tests and other treatments. And if Biden doesn’t think the FDA’s approval process is dysfunctional, slow, bureaucratic, and excessively cautious, and he thinks the organization is already moving with all deliberate speed, then he should say so. As it is, Biden simply doesn’t talk about it. He seems to think that disagreeing with any FDA or CDC decision represents not trusting “the science.” (Curiously, it took Biden almost a year to nominate an FDA commissioner, during the biggest public-health crisis the country has seen in a century.)

You Would Have to Be Drunk to Think That, Huh, Mr. President?

President Biden, earlier this week:

What happened was the Omicron virus spread even more rapidly than anybody thought. If I had told you four weeks ago that this would spread by — a day-to-day basis it would spread by 50, 100 percent, 200 percent, 500 percent, I think you would have looked at me and say, “Biden, what are you drinking?” But that’s what it did.

Ironically, a little less than four weeks ago, South Africa announced the discovery of the Omicron variant and declared that, “Many of the changes [in Omicron] have been found in variants such as Delta and Alpha, and are linked to heightened infectivity and the ability to evade infection-blocking antibodies. The apparent sharp rise in cases of the variant in South Africa’s Gauteng province — home to Johannesburg — is also setting off alarm bells. Cases increased rapidly in the province in November, particularly in schools and among young people.”

A Note of Sympathy for Those Still Worried about Spreading Covid

I concur with the editors’ declaration that it is time to drive the “Covid zero” mentality from American life:

Ever since the federal, state, and local governments started taking aggressive action against Covid in March 2020, Americans have been taunted by the promise that if we could just get over one hump, Covid madness would be over. In practice, once we got to the top of one hump, another one became visible in the horizon. And then another one. And another one. And another one.

The only note I would add is that while the federal, state, and local governments must readjust their thinking, it is understandable that certain folks may still live in a heightened state of alert for the virus, for the foreseeable future.

As I laid out on Twitter yesterday, in any given year, roughly 1.8 million Americans get a diagnosis of cancer.

Some of these diagnoses are extremely serious, some are caught early and are treatable. But for just about all of those patients and their families and friends, it is as if the world stops turning, at least briefly.

A lot of cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy and immunotherapy, result in a patient’s experiencing “moderate to severe immunosuppression” — meaning, they’re considered “immunocompromised.” So yes, Covid-19, the Delta variant, and the Omicron variant probably won’t kill you, and if your immune system is working well, you probably don’t have a lot to worry about . . . but for those 1.8 million Americans who were diagnosed with cancer, and the portion who are on treatments that make them immunocompromised . . . yeah, Omicron is something they have to worry about, even if it’s comparably “mild.”

This means everybody who comes in regular contact with a cancer patient must be a little more careful about the risk of catching Covid/Omicron, and inadvertently passing it along. And cancer patients aren’t the only Americans who are immunocompromised and must worry about a pathogen doing more damage to their systems than the average person.

So maybe that person you know who’s really worried about Omicron is a Nervous Nellie or a paranoid germaphobe or a panic addict . . . or maybe that person has a good reason to worry about a particularly contagious variant reaching a loved one who has a compromised immune system.

It’s almost Christmas. It’s a good time to treat each other with a little more patience and understanding.

They were there, then, too, Michael. :(  In 1969 I was walking with my

drunks sleeping in doorways.  Pretty sure they were homeless.

Michael wishes for an idyllic former world that did not exist. The fact
is, yes, there were homeless people in San Francisco (and everywhere
else) in the 1960's. There always have been. Of course you knew that's
what I meant.

I don't know about the US but there were not many people living on the
streets here in Canada when I was a kid. They didn't allow it back then.
Vagrants where thrown in jail and they used to stick crazy people in
asylums so they would not be a danger to themselves or to others. Then
people got concerned about the human rights, plus it was cheaper so send
them out on the streets to fend for themselves than it was to feed and
house them and have staff to monitor them.

Note that there are a lot more homeless people in warmer climates. No
one wants to be living on the streets in Winnipeg or Edmonton in the
winter.

I don't know about the US but there were not many people living on the
streets here in Canada when I was a kid. They didn't allow it back then.
Vagrants where thrown in jail and they used to stick crazy people in
asylums so they would not be a danger to themselves or to others. Then

Friends went to Canada before covid. I forgot which city they went to.
They were shocked by the huge amount of homeless people they saw. They
thought Canada was a bit better than the US, but no.

It's even worse than the neitherlands.

In Toronto, for example, it's illegal to sniff a stranger's ass on
the street.

The smart ass sniffing humans in Toronto wear dog costumes. Dogs are
exempt from the ass sniffing laws everywhere.

Don't give anyone ideas. Next we'll see reports in the Australian
media of some guy getting around in a dog costume, sniffing random
people's asses.

I wish I could have seen San Francisco back then.  Now, you
need to wear the flower under your nose in SF, due to the smell
of the homeless defecating in the streets.
They were there, then, too, Michael. :(  In 1969 I was walking
with my parents and my brothers from the hotel to a Chinese
restaurant and saw drunks sleeping in doorways.  Pretty sure
they were homeless.
heh heh  Good guess, Jill.  ;)
Michael wishes for an idyllic former world that did not exist.  The
fact is, yes, there were homeless people in San Francisco (and
everywhere else) in the 1960's.  There always have been.  Of course
you knew that's what I meant.

There was a twilight zone episode where a man was able to escape a
20th century train to a pleasant town in the late 19th century.

As usual, it turned disastrous, but I'd like to try myself. Maybe I
and trew could actually make it happen if we worked together.

At least, the old crones in that town were more pleasant.

I have no idea about streaming PBS. I've got cable. :) Those old
episodes (1900 House) likely wouldn't be streaming now, at any rate. I
was surprised to find it on Youtube.

You should watch at least the first episode where it shows all the
renovation work they had to do to gut and take the house back to 1900.
It's interesting. They were fortunate the old gas pipes for the gas
lights were still connected to the town gas mains. The coal stove in
the kitchen was a big deal, trying to find one that fit into the space
that would also heat water for the rest of the house. They never did
get more than tepid water in the upstairs bath tub. And, true to the
times, the flush toilet was out behind the house. Slightly better than
an outhouse but still outside. Life was not a picnic.

There are simple ones for at little as 35$ that stick to a window,
though they only work well if you have a really nearby station.

For various amounts more, you can get better ones, including attic ones
or rooftop types.

I've actually seen that video clip on YouTube before. Catchy song. I
don't know anything about the guy personally, but the picture that I
posted was from a guy that I knew on a web forum years ago. He knew
David Peel personally, and took the picture. He rented multiple flats,
one in the picture, collecting huge hunks of architectural detail from
buildings being torn down around NYC in the 1970's and storing them in
the flats.

I looked up David Peel at the same time (I was early in high school at
the time), and was amused by his music. It was especially fun getting
my younger siblings to sing along with some of them "I like Marijuana",
etc., to the disdain of my mother. She was also not thrilled on mothers
day when I sent her David Peel singing "Happy Mother's Day"... heh

How do you know thy were drunks if they were sleeping?

This is a common sight in most big cities for the last 25 years.
And there's no poop lying all over the streets. That's a rare
occurrence usually by the mentally ill.

Our downtown area smells like piss, especially in the heat of
summers - and 90% of that piss comes from the well-off college
kids and the usual assorted yuppies and bar hoppers on 6th street -
not the homeless.

Heck, I do it too when I'm crossing town on a bus and gotta piss.
There's no restrooms, nobody lets anybody use their restrooms,
and/or they're "out of order" or "only for employees" even though
their occupancy permit requires a restroom for customers.

The City installed some bathrooms on trailers, but theyr'e always
out of order. And the city-provided porta-potties are always locked.
People knock them over in frustration and guess what? They're empty
- no piss & shit leaking out of them (there was actually a new story
about that)

Gary is probably still used to being on dial up speeds. If he had a
decent wifi connection, it would likely work, unless he's just right on
the edge of the signal. Unless, of course, the computer is too old.

I was joking about youtube never working here.
It only didn't work because I never clicked on it (or rarely).

Took way too long with dialup.
By time I starting using the wifi, my Toshiba laptop had already
overheated once and burnt out my sound card. No need to try youtube with
no sound.

Now with new laptop all works fine but I'm still not going to click on
every youtube link that is posted here so often. Many of them aren't
worth clicking on.

By time I starting using the wifi, my Toshiba laptop had already
overheated once and burnt out my sound card. No need to try youtube with
no sound.
Now with new laptop all works fine but I'm still not going to click on
every youtube link that is posted here so often. Many of them aren't
worth clicking on.
"dsi1" especially seems to "specialize" in posting "fishy" video links...

Please just name the song and artist, Jill.
youtube.com links have never worked on any of my computers. :)
Without being sarcastic: is the neighbourhood wifi not good enough to
play YouTube clips?
I was joking about youtube never working here.

Sometimes it's worth it, but when all someone does is post a link,
without any comment, I don't click either.

Do you have your own Internet or just using other peoples wifi?
The only downside which is no big deal to me, is that I won't do online
banking with it as it is a somewhat shared connection.
I get monthly bank statements by snail mail and any bank transactions
are done over the landline telephone.
Oh boy... Joan and Greg aren't going to like that ;)

I do everything online that I can, but I also wouldn't do bank stuff
on such neighbourhood wifi or hotel/motel wifi etc. I don't know
enough about it to say that it's safe or not.

I do bank money transfers by Landline phone, only takes a minute and
all the women there know me and we enjoy our conversations. Sometimes
we can be on the phone twenty minutes catching up on personal events
like marriages and new babies.

Perhaps your bank offers that service. The only way that I can do that
here is to talk to a computer system, and it costs 75 per each bill paid.

May I ask by you do those bank transfers by phone? Can you not do them
online?
I could but I don't, I prefer the conversations.
BUT I did pay a bill by phone a few months ago. It was one from my doctor
that Social Security nor my supplemental plan paid. My doctor is not set up
as a biller on my bank account so I just called his office and paid that bill by
phone. Yeah, I could have mailed it, but the phone call was quicker and the
bill was paid.
I don't pay bills from my bank, actually a credit union, I either
write a check and use snail mail or my wife handles bill paying from
our joint account. Each month we each deposit equal amounts into our
joint account and joint bills are paid from it (household). I also
pay bills with my Visa, works well with on line purchasing. I pay
doctor bills and pharmacy bills with my Visa. My wife uses her
American Express for her personal purchases. We each pay our own
vehicle expenses, I buy gas with cash, my wife buys gas with her AmEx.
Occasionally throughout the year my wife drives me to a doctor, I give
her cash for gas. I always carry a large sum of cash with me, my wife
never has cash, often she'll ask me for a five dollar bill in the
morning before she goes to school, she knows I always have cash and
she never has cash. I've always had cash since I was a child, I'm not
going to change... I keep a large sum of cash in a drawer, and in my
wallet. My wife knows that in any emergency where to find cash.

I still use my first leather wallet that I got when I was 6 or 7 years
old. I still recall a second grade girl proclaiming "wow, just like a
real man!", when I showed her that I had the sum of about 13 dollars in
my wallet. The poor thing is bound with tape now.

I always have a couple hundred dollars on my person. My great
grandfather was a cabbie in Pittsburgh for decades, and he taught me to
keep a separate money clip from the wallet. I keep a fair sum locked in
my house also, in case of emergencies, in an asbestos fireproof safe.

It's that I "don't like it", it's simply that I'm very lazy by nature... online is SO much easier...

Haven't done any "bank transactions" by phone since prolly the Clintoon admin...

I tease, I tease.

Perhaps Gary is lucky, but paying bills by calling the 800 number costs
75 cents EACH in most cases here as a "processing fee". I have done it
a few times in a pinch when a bill was due, but I usually bundle both
electric and both gas bills for both of my houses in one envelope each
that they provide and and one check each, saving stamps also. I found
an online source for 2018 Freedom stamps that only cost $0.39 each.

I'm a good bit "old school" just like you, Michael.
I also like older cars without all new gimmicks
And I definitely like reading real paper books vs electronic readers.
I have 6 filled bookshelves here holding hundreds of real books to prove
that statement. Whenever I read a new book, if it's good, I'll save it
here. If not I'll pass it on.
Not to mention probably thousands of borrowed library books that I've
read and then returned.
Paper is good. I tend to avoid vehicles with all the latest gimmicks. I
figure they are just more things to go wrong and will need expensive
repairs. I don't like to pay for things I am not likely to use. That
being said, it is hard to find a car with manual windows these days. For
that matter, manual transmissions are pretty rare.

I am a regular ready but tend to read only in bed. I bought an e-reader
last year but I only read about a half dozen books on it before I went
back to paper. It was handy at the start of the pandemic when I could
get a new book without going to the library.


I don't buy many books. I go to the library regularly and typically have
one book I am working on and one or two standing by. I am currently
re-reading Helter Skelter. I have one half read book on the headboard
that was one of two "free to a good home" at the library. My son gave
me Margaret McMillan's "War: How Conflict Shaped Us". I want to finish
Helter Skelter, but that free book is going to have to be patient. I
want to get to McMillan's book ASAP.
I still like the OLD cartoon-like video games not the new schmancy ones.

I'm a good bit "old school" just like you, Michael.
I also like older cars without all new gimmicks
Most people want to buy cars with the latest features. The want cars with push button starters and back-up cameras. My guess is that people in the future will find it hard to believe that cars had engines that were powered by small, violent, explosions that had reciprocating chunks of metal that had to completely reverse directions 4 times during a power cycle. They will find it hard to believe that people had to actually drive the car themselves and that cars used to kill/maim so many people.
In 100 years, I'd bet that you are correct... people will be shocked
that a 2 ton rolling hunk of steel/death machine was controlled all by a
human. At least to the extent that we today look back and can't believe
that most people 100 years ago primarily used horse/buggy to get around.
Cleaning up after the horse, feeding it, moving at such a slow bumpy
pace... people today who zoom 70+ MPH down the highway couldn't fathom
such travel.

Fancy older homes usually had a decorated sitting room inside of the
formal entry with very comfortable chairs. A drive that we'd do in an
hour today took many hours, maybe all day, back then. It was nice for
folks to come in and relax in a comfortable setting after being out in
the elements, especially in cold months, and being all shaken up from a
rough long ride.

Personally, I can't stand the fancy over-bearing features in new
vehicles. They take away from the experience of driving for me. Those
features are for people who have a solely utilitarian car, that don't
enjoy driving. Modern cars have MASSIVE A-pillars, and it's very
difficult to see out of the back of an SUV, hence the back-up cameras.
I'll settle for my old cars that have windows like an observatory.

In the future, people will be having sex in their cars. People have sex in their cars these days but in the future, the cars will be self-driving and on the move. My guess is that it's going to change the dating/relationship game and take it to another level, just as the automobile first did back in the 30's. It will also bring about great changes in the marriage/infidelity game.
In the future, the kids won't have to go to a motel or find a secluded spot to have sex. Anytime they're in a car would be an opportunity for sex. The car will become the Great American Sex Machine.

I'm a good bit "old school" just like you, Michael.
I also like older cars without all new gimmicks
Most people want to buy cars with the latest features. The want cars with push button starters and back-up cameras. My guess is that people in the future will find it hard to believe that cars had engines that were powered by small, violent, explosions that had reciprocating chunks of metal that had to completely reverse directions 4 times during a power cycle. They will find it hard to believe that people had to actually drive the car themselves and that cars used to kill/maim so many people.
In 100 years, I'd bet that you are correct... people will be shocked
that a 2 ton rolling hunk of steel/death machine was controlled all by a
human. At least to the extent that we today look back and can't believe
that most people 100 years ago primarily used horse/buggy to get around.
Cleaning up after the horse, feeding it, moving at such a slow bumpy
pace... people today who zoom 70+ MPH down the highway couldn't fathom
such travel.
Fancy older homes usually had a decorated sitting room inside of the
formal entry with very comfortable chairs. A drive that we'd do in an
hour today took many hours, maybe all day, back then. It was nice for
folks to come in and relax in a comfortable setting after being out in
the elements, especially in cold months, and being all shaken up from a
rough long ride.
Personally, I can't stand the fancy over-bearing features in new
vehicles. They take away from the experience of driving for me. Those
features are for people who have a solely utilitarian car, that don't
enjoy driving. Modern cars have MASSIVE A-pillars, and it's very
difficult to see out of the back of an SUV, hence the back-up cameras.
I'll settle for my old cars that have windows like an observatory.

Do y'all still drive those enormous hearse-like vehicles in the USA?
Otherwise the "kids" will be a bit cramped.

From the link, one might assume that it's an article about a man getting killed by a pothole - but it's not. That's a relief.

It would be an average road in the Australian countryside, all year

How about in a large Australian city? Are the roads any better maintained there?

I'll say. Pot already has a bad enough name.
OTOH, avoiding potholes in a short section of a road can be a fun diversion - but not if you're baked. That could get you killed.

Oxtails, wings and pig ears have really gone up in price. I would buy pig ears to make dog treats. I now
buy snouts. I can only hope it does not get loved and become a boutique item.

They're popular in John's neck of the woods.


If John drove a bit east on Natural Bridge, he could get him
some snoots, and maybe meet some guys with BBCs. John
loves those BBCs. They're his 56/100% thang.

"BBCs" = "Big Black Cocks"...???
Yep. He likes to watch videos where small White women get
DPd (double penetrated) anally by BBCs. Lord knows why. I
think it's probably an Elliot thing--maximal DESTRUCTION of
Staceys.

I used to have a 1985 Suburban that got an honest 11MPG, and maybe down to 9MPG when I drove really fast!

And no better Pine air freshener was to shove a couple of Christmas Trees in the back and brought 'em back from Eckert's in Illinois!
Terrible for the environment but I drove it back in the 1990s.

I'm a good bit "old school" just like you, Michael.
I also like older cars without all new gimmicks
Most people want to buy cars with the latest features. The want cars with push button starters and back-up cameras. My guess is that people in the future will find it hard to believe that cars had engines that were powered by small, violent, explosions that had reciprocating chunks of metal that had to completely reverse directions 4 times during a power cycle. They will find it hard to believe that people had to actually drive the car themselves and that cars used to kill/maim so many people.
In 100 years, I'd bet that you are correct... people will be shocked
that a 2 ton rolling hunk of steel/death machine was controlled all by a
human. At least to the extent that we today look back and can't believe
that most people 100 years ago primarily used horse/buggy to get around.
Cleaning up after the horse, feeding it, moving at such a slow bumpy
pace... people today who zoom 70+ MPH down the highway couldn't fathom
such travel.
Fancy older homes usually had a decorated sitting room inside of the
formal entry with very comfortable chairs. A drive that we'd do in an
hour today took many hours, maybe all day, back then. It was nice for
folks to come in and relax in a comfortable setting after being out in
the elements, especially in cold months, and being all shaken up from a
rough long ride.
Personally, I can't stand the fancy over-bearing features in new
vehicles. They take away from the experience of driving for me. Those
features are for people who have a solely utilitarian car, that don't
enjoy driving. Modern cars have MASSIVE A-pillars, and it's very
difficult to see out of the back of an SUV, hence the back-up cameras.
I'll settle for my old cars that have windows like an observatory.
(Sorry for a Popeye length story.)
No problem. At least you know what paragraphs are.

"This is a SERIOUS RECORDING of Cheep Effects"!
You brain damaged piece of shit. You can't even quote your own words correctly.
In the recording, the word, "the," is in between "of," and "Cheep."

You don't understand what a narcissist is, but you're not the only one
here. Simple people are simple.

He's like the Energizer Bunny (if you know what that is). He never runs
down. No one was going to sign that stupid basement band for anything.
Manic behaviour.

A bounce castle killed 6 kids last week in Tasmania. It took off in a
freak wind.

Your insipid arrogance is on display in all of your posts.

You are a fatuous bloated fool.

I have seen a million faux intellectuals like you more times than I care to remember.

Q: What did one boob say to the other boob?

A: You're my breast friend.

Was the "passerby" a hooker? Perhaps one who dropped her purple
panties? You cannot convince me your neighbors want to hear your music
blasting at any time.
