  • I know people that would easily get sun burnt on their nose. I suppose certain parts of your body would be more sensitive to the sun but I’m not certain what causes that. hoping someone with more knowledge and chip in.

    I apply sunscreen to all parts of my body if I’m going out to the sun for long periods of time. I haven’t noticed certain parts of my body being more sensitive than others either.

    slight tangent: Dermatologists all recommend against tanning and especially recommend wearing sunscreen if you’re going to be at a higher than 3/4 UV indexed sunlight for prolonged periods of time. It damages skin and encourages skin cancer.






  • Because Republicans fall in line. Republicans are on record saying if Trump ever gets elected president, it will be the death of the party. Now, those same people have orange paint on their lips from kissing his ass so much. They don’t question Trump’s crazy ideas or statements, because he’s the party leader. Democrats don’t do that, and at times it’s good to question our candidates, I feel this is not that time.

    We’re 4 months from the election. The DNC convention is even sooner. No way can a new candidate become familiar with independents and gain their confidence in that time. This change needed to happen way sooner, which is the DNCs and Biden’s fault for not encouraging potential challengers to Biden. Now, there’s doubt in everyone’s minds when if there were challengers that failed to compete against Biden, we would KNOW, that Biden is still the best.

    People are only whining because that’s easy to do. Constructive criticism is harder and part of that, in regards to Biden, is offering a solid alternative that everyone will like more than Biden, so quickly. Making ourselves look so disorganized, and adding to this negative headline is not doing us any favors, and Trump loves it.







  • that metaphor doesn’t apply. The only way you change the rules in politics is by participating in politics. Conservatives have been losing pretty hard since Biden won. If they keep trying to push messaging that doesn’t get people to vote for them, then other people will try to take over and try to appeal to those same voters, but with different messaging.

    So much this. This is a shitty game, but the only way to fix the game, is to play. Keep voting blue to beat the fascist reds, and in primaries, vote with your heart. A strong voter turnout for both will make the red party irrelevant until they move more to the center, while also pushing blue more left.





  • My order descending in preference: 3. Creed is crazy and fun to listen to as well as Kevin. Just have to keep an eye on my wallet and hope Creed doesn’t smell too bad. The smell is the biggest risk I think. 9. Others hate Toby but he’s alright honestly, albeit awkward. Basically what many of my friends have been. Just have to work about him being too awkward which isn’t too bad. 5. Stanly is quiet while I usually am not. Only reason Stanley is below Toby is because Toby would be more open to talking. Regardless, minding my own business around stanly isn’t bad. 4. This is the start of potentially bad seats. Angela may be quiet because she don’t like Pam, or talk about God/cats to An annoying extent. Pam may try to talk or be quiet because she’s worried about Angela’s judginess. This may feel tense or even get arfumentative.

    1. Jim and Dwight are funny to watch when you can remove yourself from the situation, not while sitting with them. If I’m lucky, they will leave each other alone. If I’m not, Jim will annoy Dwight, and/or Dwight will be annoying as well.
    2. Andy and Gabe will be telling crazy stories, fighting with each other, and being dumb the whole home I bet. Very annoying.
    3. Kelly will not shut up. It will be pretty annoying. Ryan would maybe talk to me about investing or be elitist about some tech stuff. From 4 to here, these are all groups of people I would be annoyed with and would prefer not to sit with. Next though are the groups that are way worse
    4. Jan and Michael would be bickering and trying to bring Oscar and mimme into to join sides.maybe throwing stuff or intentional spilling of things . 6 Vance and Phylis seem like they would get way too touchy in a way that they don’t care who sees. I think it’s worse than dealing with Jan and Michael.
