I was in Honolulu looking up a restaurant or something on Google maps and I saw a marker for “Manoa Falls”. I had never been and I assumed it would be like Opaekaa Falls or Wailua Falls in Kauai. Both of those are just off the road. You get out of your car, walk 50 feet, see the waterfall, get back into your car. At worst I thought it might be like Akaka Falls on Hawaii which is nice paved with steps and walkways with rails.
Instead it was a dirt path about 1 mile long. It was a drizzly day and so it was all really muddy and slippery.
Small town on Island. Kind of reminds me of Kauai as their populations are similar although I don’t know if the population I read is just Tromsø city or if including the surrounding area makes it much bigger
Seriously think about it for a moment. If you had say $10 million what would you do? I’m guessing lots of you would buy or pay off your house or sell it and get a new one. Would you quit your job? Would you start a new job? Would you move? Would you retire? Is $10 million enough to retire? Would you teach? Or run a flower shop? Open a bar or a cafe or a club? Would you invest? In what? Buy a sports car? Blow it in Monte Carlo?
I’m going to admit right off the bat it was stupid of me to order a suit from the USA to Japan. The thing is the suit I wanted is not a common style and it was for a costume-ish party so I thought “what the heck”. In my defense I did look around Japan. I found only 3 places that might have a similar suit. 2 in Tokyo, one in Osaka. But I wrote the one in Osaka and they never got back to me. I visited the 2 in Tokyo and they didn’t have my size and I thought it would take them longer to get my size than to just order it myself. I guess though I should have listened to my first instinct.
I didn’t like this movie and it is apparently highly rated. This bugs me a little. I feel like either ( a ) people have no taste anymore ( b ) the high ratings are manufactured ( c ) I’m old
I don’t accept ( c ) as I’ve almost always disliked movies with huge issues. ( b ) is possible and if true I feel like there’s a secondary problem which is that people don’t think for themselves. They see it’s considered good and want to feel cool/hip/in the know so they go along with the crowd. This is for example how I feel about many SF restaurants whose food is not that great but people want to say “I went to hipster restaurant XYZ and I’m cool because I like it too”. Yes I realize they might actually like it. Whether that’s because they haven’t had better or because it matches their taste and not mine is another issue.
Then there’s ( a ). I tend to believe ( a ) or maybe people never had taste haha. I guess I want to believe people didn’t used to highly rate bad movies as much. Maybe I’d have to go back and check.
Yea, I’m upset and I know it’s stupid. I met a girl last year way out of my league. I know I shouldn’t say that but it’s a shortcut for she’s super hot and knows it and is probably used to a certain type of manly guy that I’m not. Someone who is an aggressive type A guy where as I’m mostly a “nice guy” geek.
Jill: “TIL Columbus didn’t discover America nor did he or anyone else at the time think the world was flat. He was an awful awful man. He tortured people, raped and sold little girls, and directed the killing of thousands of people.”
Jill: “So we should probably stop celebrating Columbus Day and maybe consider renaming Columbus Avenue in San Francisco back to Montgomery Street.”
John: “But it’s tradition. I remember learning ‘In 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue'”
Jill: “Actually the holiday is only from 1930s and the street had its name changed in 1909”
John: “Seems silly to rename them now”
Jill: “What if it they were Hilter Day and Hitler Avenue?”
