    [–] Many go to Mexico for their winter vacation. I chose the other extreme. Gunflint Lodge, Grand Marais, MN MikeKM 1 points ago in minnesota

    That's funny, I'm the same age and caught myself saying the exact same thing this week. Winter is fun when you're young. When you're 20 something you just deal with it. When you're 30 and established and need to get to work at a decent time, but can't get off you're main street because the city didn't plow is enough for a brain aneurysm.

    Maybe it's just cabin fever, it's not really that awful...at least we don't have earthquakes or hurricanes. I'll just keep repeating that to myself until spring.

    [–] This person sold their VHS player on eBay and got a surprise letter in the mailbox. MikeKM 1 points ago in pics

    Are pen pals still a thing? There's something about receiving a letter that's at least signed personally from someone in the mail.

    I cringe about the stuff I wrote my first girlfriend in high school. Thank god that stuff isn't saved electronically, she gave me all of the notes I wrote her and the notes that she wrote to me but wanted to keep.

    Every single thing from that relationship was burned in a bonfire 20 years ago before I went off to college.

    [–] Oh Mr. Hammond... How you’ve changed. MikeKM 8 points ago in thegrandtour

    I never thought I'd be taking bumpers off to change light bulbs.

    [–] Made me laugh out loud MikeKM -1 points ago in funny

    Not gonna lie, eminem with a smile is good looking. Almost a Justin Timberlake vibe which totally goes against his M-O.

    [–] What everyday household items are actually way more dangerous than we give them credit for? MikeKM 20 points ago in AskReddit

    Yeah, 15f is common in winter in the midwestern states. Old age and use breaks the springs.

    I'm guessing the spring was rusted from a leak or excessive moisture.

    [–] Fear of buying your first condoms MikeKM 1 points ago in funny

    It's a glorified title for store security.

    [–] Favorite regional saying or word? MikeKM 2 points ago in AskAnAmerican

    Flammable and inflammable mean the same thing!

    [–] Fear of buying your first condoms MikeKM 10 points ago in funny

    I did asset protection almost 20 years ago while in college, condoms were stolen but not as much as you would think. Electronics were by far the most expensive and frequently stolen thing (lots CDs). Makeup was one of the other top items, usually teenage girls stealing that and clothing by ticket switching.

    [–] What is a reward as a kid but a punishment as an adult? MikeKM 3 points ago in AskReddit

    I'm 37 and have to agree. In my 20's I could stay up until midnight and wake up at 6, at work by 7. Now it gets to 9pm and I'm basically laying in bed just relaxing until I fall asleep.

    [–] What is good for only a minute? MikeKM 2 points ago in AskReddit

    Thanks for the silver!

    [–] Warren Buffett on why bubbles happen: People see neighbors 'dumber than they are' getting rich MikeKM 11 points ago in business

    It's like that aunt and uncle that go to the casino seemingly every other day. They announce their big winnings, but if you don't really know how much they lost at the casino over the course of one year.

    [–] Thanks pornhub premium. MikeKM 6 points ago in rant

    Be careful what you wish for.

    [–] hmmm MikeKM 1 points ago in hmmm

    You really should go outside and burn your box of shame.

    [–] Pictures of the old Corvette MikeKM 1 points ago in Cartalk

    A friend of mine bought one from the same era in 2001 and paid around $4k for it with decent paint and a working engine. By the time he got rid of it, the motor wasn't working and he got maybe $1k for it.

    He was in his early 20's at the time and thought it would be cool, but had neither the money, skill or time to actually keep it running.

    [–] Scumbag Teeth MikeKM 2 points ago in AdviceAnimals

    That's probably my most hated level as a kid. No other water world compares to the frustration from TMNT on NES.

    [–] The watcher MikeKM 1 points ago in aww

    Yeah we do everything to keep kids toys and stuffed animals away from the dog for many reasons. Sometimes the dog has other ideas though if our backs are turned.

    [–] The watcher MikeKM 1 points ago in aww

    We still struggle with our daughter's toys and the dog thinking that anything on the floor is fair game, even with our daughter being older. We can't blame the dog either, she was in the house first and all of the dog toys and stuffed animals from when she was a puppy are made with the same plastic and stuffing that goes into kids toys. It all smells and looks, probably even tastes the same. The dog has plenty of her own toys and we've worked to redirect the dog when she has a child toy, but it's hard to catch and watch everything.
