That Han Solo movie Show more
It’s not this movie’s fault, but as an 80’s kid I still have a hard time taking Woody Harrelson 100% seriously in anything since Cheers (not that he’s not a great actor, just that he was too good as Woody on Cheers)
Dear kids in Washington State: you can make an appointment with your doctor, or walk into a clinic or ER, and get vaccinated. You don't need permission from your parents.

Please reshare, and copypaste this any place this would be useful.
Please. If you enjoy the MCU and need some fun in your life, go enjoy this classic post entitled Captain America Is A Big Ol' Creep And I Can Prove It With Maps. Especially fun if you're familiar with the DC area.

If you've got a new style digital meter (NOT a smart meter), they won't run backwards, but they will stop. So you won't get the full financial benefit of solar, but it isn't so bad. If you've got a newer smart meter, time to go with another plan.
Smart meters are cops and they will narc on you.

5) Listen, be open to critique, learn.

New Era says they're becoming a "virtual manufacturer" so it's not their fault they're closing their unionized hat factory in NJ and moving a tiny percentage of manufacturing to a nonunion shop to satisfy their MLB contract requirements and the rest overseas. Sean Dolittle calls them out.
