Pretty funny. Unless you're the neighbor


I don't get it. These are obviously actors,
nobody would do this in real life. You'd
be bored to death by the 2nd day.
If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.

Does it annoy you when somebody prefaces an opinion on something with "In my opinion." For example, I might say "In my opinion, Marco Rubio has a better chance at winning the GOP nomination than the polls suggest." This is obviously an opinion, so would I really need to add that preface?


Well, I can say from just my time on these sites that there are people who simply cannot understand something is opinion or even a general statement as part of conversation. So some people may have to compensate. Also why online the use of "IMHO."

Used paper back books on Amazon including shipping cheaper then the Kindle version

I love my Kindle but in some instances, going back to a physical book because its 50% cheaper

I agree that it is hard to understand. Most of my reading now are the"free"books on the kindle unlimited subscription. For $9 a month my wife and I probably read 10 books a month between us.

Before I even considered purchasing an electronic reader, I went to the nearby public library to see which platform they supported.

The only annoyance there is a paperback takes a bit longer to deliver than an e-book.

My great love for e-books lies in the fact that you can start reading a short moment after making a purchase, ditto for audio books. And of course the Kindle version won't be ready to fall apart after repeated readings...

Very true, but a paperback never runs out of battery.

I generally have 5 to 10 books on deck waiting to be read so waiting no biggie
Just spotted a rerun of the movie Cloud Atlas on TV and it reminded me I wanted to read the book this wonderful movie is based on.
Kindle 10 bucks.
used book about 5 bucks with shipping.
Just ordered the physical book a few days ago, may not get to it for a few months due to so many books waiting to be read I already have on my kindle.

It's easier to eventually recharge a battery than it is to put a paperback back together.

Of course, you can read a paperback without a battery and when the power's out (if you have a candle or a flashlight)

Pros and cons and tradeoffs. Very much like life.
