I am mildly upset by the top bar not being centered anymore.

Anyone sporting an Apple Watch? I'm getting a free one from a vendor. Can't decide if I should keep it or just sell it and pocket the cash.

Sell it and pocket the cash. I have had several coworkers get them since they have come out. All would wear them for a bit, then just slowly start wearing them less and less. They just never got used as much as expected.

Pawn shops are a great source of tools. New and used, at great prices. Do your homework before walking in, and be prepared to haggle. ALWAYS pay in cash.

Just walked out with a brand new Dewalt set that costs $280 all over the web, for less than 200 bucks. I'll take a 30% discount anytime.

I walked into a pawn shop with cash a few months ago and they refused to haggle. I walked out without buying anything.
Absurd.

A few of my coworkers who bought them bought them because they are fanboi's. Others got them as gifts.

Because they have to have all of the iThings.

You are not a true hipster unless your apple fanboism cannot be challenged.

Yeah, I was already leaning toward selling it. I figured if I wouldn't spend the money to buy one, why would I keep one rather than getting the cash instead?

The only thing I was intrigued by was the built-in GPS for activity tracking, but I'm sure there are cheaper options if I really want that. And to be honest, I don't know that I want to put a $300 device at risk while I'm activitying.

These are the most dangerous crosswalks in America. There is one in the town over from me, and A teenager with a bloody face and torn up bike was standing by it with the old lady who was in the car that hit him. Bikers, walkers, police, everyone I've talked to hates it. People that don't know any better use it, then get hit by cars. The flashing yellow lights don't mean yield, they really mean stop. Who the hell thought these things were a good idea?

Then you have a bunch of retarded drivers around. Because the law has always been pedestrians have the right of way at a crosswalk. Another case of people being stupid, and shouldn't have a license.

And to think my license got suspended for speeding tickets. All of which were on highways in remote areas, with nobody to hit.

I've never seen one of them things in my life.
People either have to cross the street at traffic lights, or find one of them people bridges and use that to go over the street.

There's a few places around here where they stick a crosswalk in the middle of a block or at an non-traffic-lit intersection. I understand why (walking a mile out of your way to go to a crosswalk that's half a mile down the street and then half a mile back is really annoying), but they're pretty dangerous.

Do you guys like not look both ways before you cross a street or something? Keep your head up and eyes open and you won't have any issues lol.
