Facebook is more useless than a phone book

In addition to being a crappy version of Diaspora* or Google+ stuffed full of ads and spyware freemium games, Facebook has some significant disadvantages versus a phonebook:

* A phonebook will stop a door.  Facebook can't.
* Ever have a young relative over who needs a booster?  Phonebook's got you covered.
* Power outage, smartphone is dead.  Need a payphone and don't want to stand at it all night with the operator to call +Public Service Company of Oklahoma.  Phonebook's there (or, at least during storm season, might even be scratched into the booth wall).
* Wobbly dinette?  Phonebook.
* Try to make a coffee table out of glue and old Facebooks...

It seriously took the baby boomers freaking +IBM's Watson to figure it out?  How deaf is that generation, anyway?  We've only been saying this pretty damn loudly for over a decade now.

The GOP is really sounding like an anti American broken record at this point.

If a Democrat wants free trade, the Democrat is anti-american because he or she wants to ship jobs overseas. If a Republican wants free trade, he is just being a righteous proponent of the free market.

+KOIN 6​ should remind Washington County Sheriff's Office that they can cite the driver if the lot is open to the public. And if they can't, then I need to lawyer up and cite that exact story to go fuck over Washington County for fucking me over on something nowhere near as egregious.
A construction worker is recovering after a crash Friday that was caught on camera -- but deputies said they likely won't cite the driver.

Classic greasy spoon on an iconic corner on Route 66. Nothing particularly remarkable, but it's consistently good food and a great hangover cure. Inexpensive; you definitely get your money's worth. Parking's in back if you didn't learn how to parallel park.

What I loved: Fursuit friendly, loves to host large groups, foul sensors turned on ("MARK IT ZERO!!"). What I didn't like: Random steps for no reason everywhere, which poses a tripping hazard when you're in fursuit and can't see down easily; scoring computers can't be used with paws on, and the touch sensors are a bit out of calibration.

Financial aid department will promise to find you only grants and scholarships, but then will sign you up for a student loan behind your back. Totally scammy school, and so much more expensive than state schools in the midwest.

Will definitely be coming back for more. Best state park I've ever been in. It's my home for at least 3 days every October for Oklacon. Park staff is nice, the facilities are the best I've seen in any state park. However, the bathrooms and showers in the Turkey Roost group camp are severely outdated and struggle with larger groups, and the Turkey Roost's overflow parking is difficult to get in and out of if you drive anything lower to the ground than a city SUV. I've been told that this is also among the most primitive of the Oklahoma State Parks, and even so, the amenities blow the doors off anything in the Oregon State Parks system. Word of warning, if fursuits or the furry fandom hits uncanny valley for you, probably a good idea to avoid it the weekend before Halloween annually when the convention is dominating the park and Watonga; the park hosts the largest outdoor furry convention in the world.

Pioneer Courthouse Square would be better, much better, if it wasn't horribly mismanaged. Concerts, beer tasting, sandcastle contests and other events that block off the entire square and hamper access to transit really should be held in Chapman Square. Pioneer Square was designed to be a public square and transit station, not an event venue, and it fails poorly at both when events beyond the tree lighting and new year's are attempted there.

Expensive but lousy food, bad service from everyone but Mike (the bellhop and shuttle driver), inconsistent housekeeping, broken Jacuzzi, bad wifi, no coffee maker in the suite, shuttle service is slow and an hour late if anyone other than Mike is driving. Casino has high minimums and cranky staff. Nosh Deli isn't actually a deli, but is an excellent source of food poisoning. This place is the exact opposite of the Hard Rock Casino Tulsa in almost every imaginable way.
