You know what really grinds my gears...

When Amazon doesn't display the lowest price on an item - one that's both shipped from and sold by Amazon directly. It always pays to check the "Used and New from..." link.

I have no idea if the.m next Blade movie is a remake or not, but if it’s not, I’d love to see a cameo from Snipes in it.

I enjoyed some of the infant stage, namely when she was asleep in my arms. That said, after 1 it gets much better. Just being able to communicate better makes a world of difference. Age four up is almost tops, if only because of the embracing hugs I get. It's just different, in a much better way.

I think it's reasonable to spend a few extra bucks for certain features. I've never seen a car seat that can lock in place as well as Britax ClickTight, and it's 100% due to the design. I'm referring to using the seat belt, BTW, not latch (since latch is only good up to a certain weight).

I don't know of many convertible car seats that last from the infant stage to toddler, and the Graco system that we used that had bases for each car was worth its weight in gold. We could get our daughter all tightened up in her seat while still inside, so getting her locked into the car was quick a...

Funny story: we had to send in a signed medication form for cough drops at my daughter's elementary school. Odd, but whatever. We received a note at the end of the year asking us to pick it up or it'll be trashed, so my wife went to pick it up the last week of school. The bag was **** empty. :lol:

To update my own issue, I spoke with the teacher who apologized for forgetting to put sunscreen on her. Hopefully that's the end of it.

I can see where they're coming from with that, only because some kids have bad reactions to some sunscreens. One of my Sport sunscreens burns my daughter. If you're providing your own sunscreen, though, the risk is essentially your own.

Do it on an island, though, just to be safe. And to double down on the safety, in extremely unlikely instance that things go tits up on that isle, there should be a second facility - retcon, er, I mean call it 'Site B', to avoid confusion. Will either facility to be on an island with an active volc...

home theater, cord cutting, video streaming, a/v tech, and more!

So far, I’ve been able to find UHD versions of most major movies to download. I wouldn’t bother if I didn’t have gigabit internet, though, seeing as how they range from 20-70GB. Are they compressed at all? Does HDR and Atmos come through on those? These ones aren't compressed or re-encoded, and bas...

She’s six, but they’re supposed to reapply in the afternoon (stated in their policy book, as well). We send her to camp with sunscreen on in the morning. I want to see what the teacher says tomorrow, because I can’t imagine that they’re leaving it up to the kids to remember to put sunscreen on (I di...

So the teachers at camp didn’t bother putting sunscreen on my daughter before going to the outdoor pool this afternoon, and she’s absolutely roasted. I’m **** livid right now.
