    Every time I read a terrible way to die post, I think of an obscure case I read a long time ago, Mitchell v. New York Life Insurance Co., 27 N.E.2d 243 (Ohio 1940).

    A man died from a ruptured colon and intestine, which occurred when he used a product described as a self-administered enema. The product was a rubber tube that you hooked to a faucet. He hooked it to the bathtub and the water pressure was too high.

    I don’t care about celebrities but I do find learning about the experiences other have on here fascinating. I grew up way different than most here and I sometimes share those experiences to give people a different perspective. I don’t think either MLS or Eathan Edwards are doing it to brag or name drop. It’s just their life.

    I grew up in a trailer in Tampa with no father, it fucking sucked. It did make me work hard since there was no other option but I missed out on a lot of normal childhood things. I think I started working at 13.

    You were bartending as like a 14/15 year old. Which is ridiculous to me now but it was basically the same where I grew up.

    I threw a ton of redbud seeds over there but it'll be a few years before they rise above the stiltgrass

    Some of that yard turns into a river when it rains so I think a lot of what I threw over probably washed away downstream. Some areas are good tho.

    But I have new seed packs in the mail on the way

    about 7,500 of these, which are host plants for monarch butterflies:

    about 1,250 of these:

    Got home from work 2 hours ago and there were AT&T trucks parked on side street by alley. 30 mins ago, internet went out. Checked app and there is an “outage” that is supposed to be resolved in 25 hours.

    WTF? Planned 25 hour outage? I don’t think that is called an outage. Shouldn’t we be notified of that ahead of time? Am I being ridiculous in thinking this is ridiculous?

    someone may have cut into the fiber line? a few years ago we had something like that and it took 5 days before we had internet again. sorry brother

    isp companies contract out a ton of their work, at least around here.. i'm not saying it's good or bad but it makes it pretty opaque for regular people to figure out why their internet is out

    I feel like 2023 is going to be a year where I cut all this shit out. They got me hooked and they're gonna keep raising prices.

    An outage is an outage. Why would they notify people? It’s just gonna piss them off. Probably wasn’t a planned thing if people are working at 8pm.

    Idk man, my buddy that lives on the corner where the trucks were parked said the trucks were there pretty much all day. So if they were not planning to shut it off, someone fucked up while there doing whatever else they were doing.

    But by all means, Stan for AT&T. One of the most garbage companies with some of the most garbage customer service that the world has ever known.
