BB&B probably has the largest quantity, on a per item basis, of items you didn't know you needed. I didn't even realize there was a more convenient way to open a jar, or organize my flip flops. But...

I was thinking about this earlier. First fatality is a win - because fatalities are expected. How airlines have prepared statements and protocols for loss of life accidents. How many other...

That's a good point - about the treatment he got from Rosita possibly playing a part. Perhaps he assumed that in the case Rick won, he'd just be able to apologize his way back into the circle. Like...

Right. Woodbury people weren't doing bad things really. Not even crimes by pre-ZA standards. Compare that to the murder, enslavement, etc that all Savior fighters were not only fully complicit in,...

He did explain it, but I don't remember exactly what he said at the time. I just shrugged as it made sense at the time. Regarding what you're saying, I didn't think Eugene was aware of the genius...

Yep. So much time spent on recruiting Oceanside and all they do is takeout the leftovers from the side-attack on Hilltop when Hilltop fighters had decent numbers and cover?

Yep. Dwight was a...

Here's what I see as the relevant story lines for next season (starting with the most obvious):

1. Maggie vs Rick. That's going to annoy me. I like when all our hero characters are together and...

See my post above about it not being a long con. Plus, he had chances before to end it all and didn't - costing more lives. No sense in him waiting for the long con to play out given all the...

Yeah, I get the whole "it needs to go back to the way it was." No Judge Dredd roles (Judge, jury, & executioner) belong in a civilized society. But... in the "way it was", execution would still be...

I thought Eugene was gone to the dark side. But then in the "previously on" recap they showed the scene where Gabriel tampered with the bullets. That spoiled it for me. And especially when they...

I'm stringently opposed to this scam of a charity. Donating cars to kids. They should learn to get a job, save, and buy their own cars. And really they shouldn't have a car until their 16 anyway.

Hmm. Did I say that wrong? Past tense of wear? Or am I missing a joke?

ETA: Ah, you're making fun of the past tense, as in people still wear them presently. Got it. Sorry, I'm slow today.

I said speed but really meant "perceived time it takes to travel one year" which really is a unit-less measure of time. So yes, upside down. Taking 1/2 to travel one year is slower than taking 1/50...

I think the answer to the OP question is going to be highly dependent on the age of the poster. Somebody who lived during the Seinfeld and Friends era think those clothes don't look that old because...

FTR, I put "can afford" in quotes because I assume you're using a different definition than the one I use. In my mind, "can afford" is defined by the bank - that is how much money they're willing to...
