    Anyone familiar with "self cleaning" toilets and if they are worth it. Doing a big remodel and never want me or the wife to have to clean a toilet again.

    just an FYI I have att fiber and you have to use the stock router.

    (edited for error)

    You have to Jury rig it in order to use another router that turns it into a passthru but it’s never the same as having a better router.

    Jerry rig has been in use for over a century and is far more common today than jury rig.

    You’re conflating google searches versus actual published usage in press releases, periodicals/ journals, and other written media.

    Comparing the google trends of regardless and “irregardless” over the past 5 years shows a non-zero number for the non-word irregardless. That doesn’t make it right. There’s a small window where it’s even more googled than the correct word.

    There are times when new ways of living necessitate new words and new meanings (like sending someone a “snap” or a “tweet” would make zero sense in 2001). But taking a 4-500 year old phrase and changing it because of 5 years worth of google searches seems a bit much.

    Garner's is biased toward formal language, so obviously informal terms will suffer if you use it as a reference.

    Google trends certainly speaks to how common a term's usage is, which was one of the pillars I originally listed.

    The term's been in use for over a century, in addition to its relative popularity in google trends. I'm not saying it should be the only term used, but I think the ship has sailed on correcting people for using it.

    Irregardless is obviously a word. Sure, you can argue it's redundant and inefficient, but it clearly is a word. And that distinction seems important given the context of this discussion.

    I typically go out for espresso and use the press at home. The machine was old and just wasn’t that great anymore because I don’t take care of things.

    This is a half gallon of Secret Aardvark. It’s a thicker smokey tomato based sauce that goes great on everything. Spice level is probably 4 out of 10.

    $40 from Amazon which equals $5 per 8oz bottle. Secret Aardvark website will give you 12 bottles for $72 (including shipping).

    I should have spent the extra $10 to buy from the maker.

    Kinda an impulse buy.
    I'm constantly taking/losing notes. Seems like it could be worth it...

    I'll either hate myself for spending $550 on this or be very happy. There's no in between.
