I've always disliked the laziness of titling sequels by adding a number to the name of the first film, but taking that practice to a truly ludicrous place is THE HAUNTING IN CONNECTICUT 2, which doesn't continue the story from its predecessor and takes place in Georgia.

An article asks "Assuming the afterlife exists, in what fictional world do you want to spend it?"

America. Maybe someday we'll really get there...

Just caught myself typing a response to a comment on YouTube, a guy ranting about feminists. I quickly deleted the text. NO. Nuh-uh. What the hell was I thinking?

You know, one of those stores that's convenient?

Is that dress white and gold or black and blue?

I ask not because I really care but to annoy the folks who are so tired of hearing about it they're actually taking the time to complain.

Kudos to the FCC for protecting net neutrality, aka "Obamacare for the internet." See? We can have nice things, even if the GOP doesn't want us to.

I'm not blindly proud to be an American. I'm ever hopeful for an America I can be proud of, though.

Yesterday I ordered 2 calzones and 10 BBQ wings. I opened the first calzone. It was burnt. About a sixth of the crust was black.The second was worse. But I decided to eat what I could and accept the loss. It tasted awful. I call, ask for the manager. Guy says the manager isn't available. I tell him about the calzones. He hangs up. I call back. Another guy answers. Asks what the problem is. Says "I cooked those calzones. They weren't burnt." I tell him they are burnt. He gets belligerent, telling me that I'm full of it. The first guy, apparently hearing this guy starting to berate me, gets on. Then hangs up. I call back. The first guy answers. Says bring the food in. I say it was delivery. He insists. I tell him never mind, I'll just review them online and call it even. Today I didn't feel like putting more energy into the matter and was just going to accept the wasted twenty-five bucks. But I opened the BBQ wings for breakfast. They had no sauce.
