    Here's an unrelated, but equally burning (hehe) question:

    Why is it NYPD, but then FDNY?

    Why couldn't both departments use the same scheme for their respective abbreviated names?

    It should be:

    NYPD and NYFD, or

    PDNY and FDNY

    Someone needs a lesson in uniformity.

    The departments have completely different histories going back way before even my time. And tradition began for both without regard for the name and abbreviation of the other. That's the way it happened and no one cared, until you came along.

    We need to get this boy some hobbies. That basement must be getting awfully stuffy in this summer heat. :D

    Samsung's newly announced 512 GB BGA NVMe SSD houses the equivalent of 18 chips while keeping total weight down to a single gram. It is smaller than a standard U.S. postage stamp.

    I'm pretty sure that is far from the scariest thing about crazy chicks.

    My apologies I got caught on the moment and didn't realize there was an actual bad word there, honest.

    LOL! I'm sure, luckily I've never had to deal with this (knock on wood) :)

    This is true. I married a Louisiana girl . . . there are definitely scarier things to consider than how much more crazy her friends might be.

    Note to spammers:

    Don't use your company name as your user name. That is all.

    Duh.

    It's such a weird world we live in. It feels like we have front row seats for watching the world burn. Most people seem to chase material possessions, live through Facebook and attempt to one-up each other. Few people even think to save a dime. How are they going to retire? Kids haven't played outside for years, but now that there is a phone game that allows them to catch virtual Pokemons, you'll occasionally see them roaming the neighborhoods once again. It's considered rude to show up at someone's house unannounced or even to call. I used to get up, toss on some clothes, knock on my friends' doors and play outside until it got dark. We'd only go inside to get food and then it was right back out to continue our adventures - no Pokimons required for inspiration. Not bitching; it's just an observation about how much I've seen things change since I was a kid.
