So you can drink your coffee only if you have a compatible phone?


My phone is a Samsung, so in a pinch I can use it as an immersion heater to make instant coffee.

I fear that people of either political ideology won't listen until it's too late.


As I've pointed out to you before, ideologies are for lazy thinkers - e.g. people who get their ideas from YouTube.

Ideologies are only part of the spectrum of thought. There are people who actually think about issues instead of just having knee-jerk reactions based on ideologies.

Ideologies are categorizations of similar-like thoughts.


The problem arises when an ideology is used as a reference for answers to all questions. It's like using the Bible to answer all questions. A lot of the answers aren't there.

Some of my squeaks are bleeped out.


I, for one, have never been bleeped (as far as I know) - and I have used most of the "offensive" words. I think it's more about obsession than the words themselves. If you call everybody a "racist idiot" you might get bleeped. But thanks to my immense vocabulary I can call somebody a racist idiot in several different ways. It makes for more interesting posts (whether I know what I'm talking about or not).

On the other hand, if you have enough volume, you're bound to get something right once in a while.
