    I was going to ask where you are that has camels, then I saw you were in Austin. Texas seems to have a lot of exotic animal breeding going on. Friends have a farm in Boerne that backs up to a pasture...

    But sometimes they don't stand until you start down the center line, so you're still stuck with trying to figure out when you're actually supposed to go in.

    Most nail places use "gel" and "shellac" pretty much interchangeably. I think maybe when gel manicures first came out, they called them shellac to differentiate them from actual gel nails, but these...

    I'm wretched at math and most of these have my brain hurting and eyes crossing, but wouldn't it be 50%? Each flip is independent of the other, and while it might seem like getting 29 heads in a row...

    I loved Ready Player One! I'm in the demographic that grew up in the 80s, so all the trivia was really fun, and I liked the story and the characters.

    I've had very good experiences with gel manicures (done in a salon) lasting for quite a while, maybe even as long as 3-4 weeks depending on how much or little I'm using my hands. It's the tips that...

    Can someone explain Bitcoin to me?

    I've read the Wiki page and the official page, and I still have no clue what it is or does. It seems to be some kind of fake currency that people are using to buy real things? And it's special...

    Depression does nasty things to you. For me, it's not so much that I feel like other riders have their stuff together more than me, but that other people in general have it all together. I look...
