No fat guys on submarines... nobody's in great shape though either.

I'd expect that of most desk-job type situations (confined spaces).

The crew might not want anyone to clog an emergency exit with adipose tissue.  I would suspect that even US submarines aren't built for tubbies.

Just heard an amusing story about the San Diego Chargers(the American Football team that's been in San Diego for something like 50 years.)

Dozens of moving companies in the area have refused to move them out of spite, despite this likely being the biggest moving job in the region for years if not decades.

Seattle keeps sending elections stuff to my colorado address.  This includes a ballot and now my democracy voucher, which I think is the 25$ get to send to the campaign of my choice.  How can that be sent to an out of state address without someone asking, Does this guy live here?  Should he be voting in our elections?

Average historical temperature for today at my location is below freezing.  We have a high of 60 degrees in the forecast.  This whole planet is going to burn, if the fires aren't put out by the torrents of blood spilled in the inevitable conflicts that will rise.


On a slightly lighter note, in response to the poll no I've never been arrested.  I wonder if I'll be able to say the same thing four years from now.

Oh sorry we're borrowing it.  60 degrees today (F) in Chicago.  Average historical temperature for this day is below freezing.

If the  road gets cleared I might go skiing tomorrow.  Of course we were sweltering in 30º+ a couple of days ago.
