I haven't had the flu since the 1990's. I've never got a flu shot, either.

I'm literally saddened by the fact this show and the people in it exist.

There's nothing wrong with MIM Fenders. Some people even say they like them better than the more expensive American models. I had a MIM Strat.

You could probably say that about a lot of nice areas in urban places. I went in the early 2000's. I only stayed in the touristy area you described pretty much, aside from going to Virginia a little. The only thing vaguely criminal I saw was a homeless black guy yelling at a security guard of a place who made him stop sleeping there.

The only particularly notable hotel I've ever stayed in was the Watergate, and it's certainly nothing fancy, and only notable for the scandal, but it was nice enough for what it is. Had a nice river view room, and the staff was friendly.

What really made it nice, was the fact it has a Safeway, drugstore, and other shops right below it.

There's even a Dutch school in south Florida.

I don't know why they like it here so much. Lots of Brits in central Florida, too.

There are many thousands of Dutch people here in central Florida. They have entire subdivisions in some areas. Some live here fulltime, some own part time vacation houses. I guess they see something they like.

She does have a weird body in that last picture. Pretty face, though.

Oh, same old things. About to eat lunch and go to the gym and do legs like I do every Sunday.

. said:Picking a mate based on their taste in music is immature. If you are over age 25 and still believe musical preference is critical you have a problem.



Yeah, like I said. It's more complex than that. I wouldn't pick anyone solely based on it. But it can be a point of annoyance and argument.

That being said, like another poster above, I would not willingly date someone with no broader appreciation of culture than Adam Sandler movies and shitty pop music. Nor have I. All the relationships I've been in in recent history, I've been fortunate to have common ground in such things.

You're never going to agree on absolutely everything, but it's nice to have many things in common.

I actually understand where she's coming from on this. One of the first long-term relationships I was in when I was 20 years old, the breakup was precipitated on a difference in pop culture. It's always more complex than that, of course, but it was a point of contention.

Frankly I'd be annoyed as fuck by a woman who listened to shit like Adele and Lady Gaga all the time.

. said:I know what you mean, buti don't loveit, I find it somewhat sad. These kids coming up are being robbed. They're not being exposed to good creative material. When was it decided to stop being original? Kids now only see remakes and reboots, hear crappy music or covers. It's as though the world began only 12 years ago. This is probably just someone who is getting old not "getting it." Which is fine.



On the same note as this, I've seen dozens of teenagers in Youtube comments saying "The music of my generation sucks," "Music from the past 10 years sucks," "I only listen to classic rock," etcetera.

Some of these kids get it, at least.

While I can appreciate covers, I rarely hear a cover that I think is better than the original.



I love it when retards (i.e. :genyconnor: on Youtube go ballistic over a 20+ year old song that they think ripped off a song made by some autotuned "singer" made within the past 10 years.

Fucking idiots.

From what I've read in recent years, they've got a ton of poor people from Eastern Europe joining. French regulars are one thing, FFL recruits are another.

I talked to a marine who did joint training with the FFL. He said they were as good as anyone in their echelon. This was years ago and I don't remember many of the details, but I remember him saying they drank a lot.

I recall him disliking the FAMAS for some reason, as well, although I don't remember why.

You pretty much won't find anyone who has worked alongside the FFL saying bad things about them. They get in really shitty places, too.
