And waiting in line and dealing with crowds doesn't help.

I'm just waiting for VR to come along and kill the stadiums for good.
It's "pea-can", man.

"It is not I who is mad! It is I who is crazy!" -- Ren Hoek

"[... it seems most strange that... ] the Creator of Heaven and Earth resorted to the womb of a certain Jewish lady, grew there for nine months and was born as an infant, and afterwards grew up and was betrayed into the hands of his enemies who sentenced him to death and executed him, and that afterwards... he came to life and returned to his original place. The mind of a Jew, or any other person, simply cannot tolerate these assertions. If you have listened all your life to the priests who have filled your brain and the marrow of your bones with this doctrine, and it has settled into you because of that accustomed habit. [I would argue that if you were hearing these ideas for the first time, now, as a grown adult], you would never have accepted them." -- Rabbi Moses ben Nahman, defending the Talmud at the Disputation of Barcelona, July 1263.

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

OK.

They've pissed off all the right wingers with the "take a knee" business.

Now it's the left wingers' turn to be pissed off.

The NFL has provided some unity to the otherwise divisive political atmosphere in this county by managing to be disliked by the entire political spectrum.

Hey Suddenly!

I just realized I have been remiss in not posting our official return of the Prodigal video in your honor.

Now that you're back, how about an avatar? :)
