But I am glad and grateful to live here.
So somehow close but different.
Yes to all of that

Where you are born is a random cartographic accident based on where your mother happened to go into labor and other people decided to draw random lines across the globe.
What is there to be proud about?

Also America is the only country I know that is both insanely proud of 'being American' but everybody will also immediately obsessively tell you where their ancestors come from.

So that's $100/year for life. or at least until the raise the price. I bet there are cheaper ones just as good. But I don't want to shit on your choice if you're happy

I'm 50% Norwegian & 50% Swedish and 100% American! I have two guns to prove it!

I voted no on the poll. I've always had criticisms of America's foreign policy, using human rights as an excuse for interfering where $$ is being made and not where just human rights are being violated. The thin vail of virtue we hold up to the world and all the Americans that believed it. But I thought we could and would do better. Until the last four years anyway.

My old pair's mics stopped working, but I absolutely bought a new pair. I don't care how much they cost. I love walking around my office with an excuse to ignore my coworkers cause my pods are in. AND now I have a podcast pair for home and work.

I poured an entire glass of water on my laptop yesterday so I needed this episode. Even though that was 1000% my own fault, fuck Apple for not making shit that can get wet. We put a man on the moon but my $1000 internet box can't take a little water poured directly into its insides?? Anyway I will try putting my laptop in rice pilaf and up my asshole before I give up, worth a shot.

I really hope the election doesn't come down to PA, because we're a bunch of idiots. This whole ballot counting taking longer is a controversy completely manufactured by the Republican state house who didn't let them start counting mail ballots until Election Day. Plus it'd be hilarious if trumps entire strategy came down to taking advantage of the slow PA count and in the end it didn't even matter. Cmon Georgia/Nevada!!

I just know I would also destroy or loose expensive headphones or sunglasses in a week so unfortunately I can't have them.

Also maybe the democrats would've actually won big if they were promising literally ANYTHING for people other than "we're not Trump." If joe had campaigned on Medicare for all or universal basic income it'd be a different election. Yes I'm still crying over Bernie shut up

Apropos of nothing last night I learned that Craig Klein spent his youth with mid western golden girls.

My airpods fall out of my ears whenever I'm chewing. A bitch can't snack and listen to podcasts??

These other ones I got are straight up science magic, bone-conducting headphones sit outside your ear, not in your ear-hole and send the soundwaves right into your ear bones. Comfortable, AND can hear ambient noises still so it's great when I'm riding my bike or want to otherwise still be able to hear what's going on around me.
