I meant to do that.
Free will might be an illusion created by our brains, scientists might have proved. Humans are convinced that they make conscious choices as they live their lives. But instead it may be that the brain just convinces itself that it made a free choice from the available options after the decision is made.

Back where we started. It's stuff like this that makes me suspicious of 'settled science'.

Some reading during my break from working on my taxes.
 
Hey #IRS, we're going to help them to not only to no longer be afraid of you but to also fight back and win. Count on it. The #tsunami is here. 
Those 18 to 34 are more afraid of filing their taxes than any other generation. The key to dealing with the agency: Don't ignore it.

Here's a good idea.
 
Subscription boxes might be the biggest waste of money you've ever spent. Don't "show someone you care with a random box of stuff this holiday season.”

I found the portions a bit more generous than expected, compared to other places. Light 50s theme. Popular Mom and Pop restaurant.

Had lunch with my family. The food was good and satisfying; but, we did not feel that we got a good value for the cost. Other taquerias in the area offer more than a couple tacos and a bowl of beans with their combo.

This location includes an outside eating area. As for the food, it's no surprise. One goes for the many flavors of chicken wings.

This isn't the place where young people go clubbing. Crazy Joe's is a place where you ride up on your motorcycle to meet some friends and catch some live music. Great place to be if you want to hang out with grown-ups to unwind.
