You mean like women?
there's one 11 miles away or so in very robust retail district - it's odd
It would be so funny if it turned out to be an amusement thing for them. Jumping in the car, driving down to IKEA to laugh at the silliness and take some pictures eating swedish meatballs.there's one 11 miles away or so in very robust retail district - it's odd
I swear it was liking walking into a play - or people were pretending
to be euro or something
standard attire was skinny jeans and the waist length / collarless leather
jacket - - in the requisite black
the meatballs are good - but probably wouldn't buy them frozen to bring home
by far the best product that sell - ORDNING utensil basket @ $2.99
have had one for 10 years - great for bachelor rinses and prevents
knives and such from spelunking into the disposal
their kitchen stuff is interesting - but open pantry design can mean
a lot clanking during food prep and clean up
That wasn't necessary, I got it. GeezezI believe Mark Twain wrote something like “Two Ways to See a River”. The basic premise is that he saw the beauty and majesty of the Mississippi River. Then he became a riverboat pilot. All he saw at that point was the technicalities of navigating the river. He could never again see the pure beauty and majesty of the river. For me, not knowing the intricacies makes for a more fulfilling experience. Let me me take it to a base level, my level. Imagine you are receiving oral pleasure. Then imagine some doctor is narrating the physiology of the act In real time.
Yes, when I was involved with technology the history of things was always an entertaining read.I can't say the fascination ever ceases for me. I'm forever researching anything engineering related, in particular cars, aircraft/aviation (my dream job), trains, and engines of all types. It fascinates the heck out of me.
For instance, I know exactly how engines work, but they still amaze me. I can hold a con rod or a valve and think "that's friggin' awesome". Jet engines aswell, I think those are one of the most beautiful and fascinating marvels of engineering ever created.
Worth knowing... I'm a big nerd. I spend my spare time just looking up how random components work in aircraft or other vehicles. Just today I was researching how the ADIRS (inertial reference system) works on Airbus A320's. Which, btw, was very interesting.
Now that you are out of the industry, the details probably don't matter much any more.Yes, when I was involved with technology the history of things was always an entertaining read.
When I read about the development of automotive front end geometry it was very interesting. It also made me a better mechanic or welder, to study things down to the basics.
But when I finally retired I lost a lot of drive for those types inquiries. I still have a passing interest in new stuff. Space X is fun to watch. I’ll still go to a locomotive museum and enjoy it etc.
To concentrate on details is harder now that I’m out of industry.
