Pretty much. I'll probably get rejected because of my driving record.

Figured i'd do one route and see how bad it is. No minimum time commitment, so I can just do it if I have free time.

"When they're on the clock, Flexers will be directed to "a location near you" to pick up packages that must then be delivered in a "local radius" whose size is based on the length of your shift."

Is it just me, or does that sound like the basic premise of a Facebook videogame?

I went from a Moto X Pure edition to a Galaxy S6. Data speeds are not a fair comparison, but the phone itself is just as fast in terms of opening apps and such.

Well... once you get the ring on in the 2 1/2" girth... all thickness seems to take on the show around it to seal it up... plus the random distance from the other bolt... Doesn't work with all setups of... *****.

Actually, it occurs to me that I've never been in a really proper fight. Not since childhood, anyway...

Overrated. I had a couple in college over stupid drunk stuff. Nobody wins everybody hurts.

Me neither. I just always figured it was a sign of intelligence.

Severe pain sucks.

That is all.

(Unrelated to previous observations about fighting.)

I have, twice that I can remember.

Sometime back in 1998, a guy came at me with a metal pipe for no apparent reason. He was bigger, and let's just say no one would bet on me for the outcome.
I was miraculously lucky. One kick in his inner right knee brought him down.
I grabbed and threw the pipe away and proceeded to wipe the asphalt with his face till people tore me away from him.
There was blood.

The second time was probably in 2002 or so.
I was playing soccer in the city league at the time.
A large striker from the team we were beating badly just attacked a rather diminutive defender who had been ridiculing him with his skills.
I ran up to the guy and tried to kick him away from my "little" teammate.
He just grabbed me, raised me above his head and slammed me down on the ground.

They told me he was the captain of some wrestling team after I regained consciousness.
And my teammate thanked me for saving his life.
He had taken the opportunity to get away while I "distracted" the big guy.

Both were instances I could not avoid.
