I have used an elevator today that had a name. There was a big sign at its door reading

Clint Eastwood Elevator

Did you feel lucky?

I ended up at the wrong level that later turned out to be the right level. -_-_

Now that I think about it. The elevator led to the central emergency unit ...

I don't even know what decade it is half the time.

Once I went into the auto-parts store to get something for my car. The technician asked what year my car was. I said, "It's ah, hmm, what year um... Oh, wait, I remember, it's a one-thousand, six."

He just stared at me blank faced. I was expecting him to type that into his computer thingy that tells him what part to get. But nothing. He stood motionless and silent. It was somewhat unnerving. He just stood there motionless, transfixed on me.

I had to double check my appearance. Did I spill mustard on my shirt? Was I even fully dressed? Yep, everything checked out. So what's going on? I asked myself. This awkward silence continued for an uncomfortably long time. Then it hit me: 1006. "Oh, sorry, it's a 2006 Hyndai." Finally, he started typing.

Yes, I was off by a thousand years.
Maybe a Flinstone -Yabba, Yabba doo? Did you use your feet for impulse after coming out of the quarry?

Or did the employee use hammer and chisel to note your order?

So the move to 5G is eminent and will happen soon. Now , I have 4G, so not sure where I fit in to the whole new scheme. Just need to be able to access 5G Wifi from a 4G phone to transfer all my content to the new phone.

I have installed a cookie cleaner add-on. It displays the number of cookies a site wrote. The interesting result so far:

With our masonry heater every cold day comes with a low RH period. Right now it is around 20%.
Itch age.

Seems like grilled chicken chain "Pollo Tropical" (Chicken from the Tropics) has branches in Russia. I can imagine people eating chicken wearing 5 coats staring at the palm trees in the PT logo.

Wonder what a world would be like where it was possible to model relations without noise, e.g., grades vs hours studied or BP from hours of exercising, etc.

I noticed a green spot in my big toe nail. Concerned, I started scraping it and a whole layer on top of the original nail came of. Kind of scary, I initially thought the actual nail was coming off, but it turned out to be the layer.

Edit: I almost posted this to "How do you drink your coffee". Would have been a weird fit.

A sequel to the "milk with porridge" question. A friend of mine commented that my eating of a piece of salmon without first removing the skin was "f*cking weird", despite my never having being urged to do so for any piece of fish in my life. It seems akin to peeling off the crust from bread - far too much effort, and in any case it's actually quite nice. Thoughts?

Always wondered on a bigger -picture/connection in the UK: Francis Bacon, Lord Hogg and, of course, all the hams. Hogg, Ham and bones.

I frequently get some ads on FB from a burger restaurant in town. The burgers always look great. Today I had the chance to have a look at the actual real-world restaurant. Well, my appetite all of a sudden went south, far south.

How far South? Antarctic burgers? Maybe polar bear patties?

Far enough so that I couldn't see what they were doing. However, it's not a big loss. They support the wrong soccer club anyway.
