    Drove out to Cali with the bff and her folks. Never made that drive before. The landscape and whatnot is beautiful. We are in Desert Palms. Went to San Diego today. Went to the USS Midway. /coolstory

    Do you have a Costco membership? Bought tires at the one way back in the day at Town Brookhaven.

    Unless you have a Sam's or maybe Costco membership.

    I have used Discount and Sam's. Sam's is cheaper in my experience. Discount is a good option though.

    I have sams and discount has had pricing within $50, better locations, and better overall service than sams every time

    Literally just put a full set of Michelin tires on the wifes car a couple of weeks ago.
    Discount is 15 minutes from the house, sams is an hour.
    Discounts free rotations and balances and flats , roadhazard free replacement, etc is well worth the tiny difference in price for me.

    Discount also bends over backwards when they pull up my account because they see my history back to my very first truck when I was 16, it may show them further into my dads history too (he was a loyal discount customer)
    I've felt like I was bumped up in the line several times

    I won't deny that. Sam's and discount to me are close and similar. Sam's is harder for many. Discount is a quality place.

    it's his new series on Amazon. Apparently he's going to different countries and doing country specific humor. First episode is Canada...about 40 minutes long. Not 100% but i think episode 2 is Spain.

    Some days I will go to my apartment for a quick lunch, and almost every time there is this old retired dude in the courtyard reading with his shirt off and legs propped up. He usually has a glass of ice water, a mich ultra, and tanning oil sitting next to him. It makes it really hard to go back to work sometimes.

    D2 the mighty ducks is on and the kids are playing street hockey on the court and the ball/puck flies over the fence and drills a dude's car windshield.

    He happily picked it up and and chucked it back over the fence and said "alley oop!"

    Mrs. Celemo goes into the youtube rabbit hole like the rest of us from time to time, she got sucked into a string of eating challenges vids last night. I was laying there next to her listening while this guy completed a eat 35,000 calories in 24hr challenge. My stomach hurt just listening to all the shit that guy put down.

    How could it be 16. You’d have to do 8 divided by 1/2 to get that

    8, divided by 2, times 4

    When you hit a segment you work them left to right.

    It’s dumb. If you put a multiplication operator between the 2 and the parentheses, you won’t get an argument. Not having the operator deliberately creates the confusion and gives the impression that the the entire segment is one term. And that impression is not at all an unreasonable assumption to make. Once someone has exposure to basic algebra, viewing these silly elementary arithmetic problems as cool “gotchas” is dumb. We have ways of making it explicitly clear how to solve an equation. We should just write them in that manner all the time.

    The confusion is on the order of PEMDAS.
    At face value you would say do all the Ming before you D. In reality Ming and Ding are equal and you M or D in order they appear. Same with Aing and Sing. But not Ping and Eing. Also Sing D.
