    “It has been a source of great pain to me to have met with so many among [my] opponents who had not the liberality to distinguish between political and social opposition; who transferred at once to the person, the hatred they bore to his political opinions.” —Thomas Jefferson (1808)

    Lunting

    Lunting is a verb meaning to walk around while [smoking] a pipe. [Tobacco] was first brought to Europe by the Spanish in 1528 and the word ‘lunting’ is almost as old, first appearing somewhere around 1540 – 1550. Lunting is what pipe smokers do as a means of stress relief or to relax although it should be remembered that in large quantities tobacco can be [hallucinogenic] and the exercise will increase respiration rate, heart rate and may speed the absorption of any [hallucinogens].

    Additional meanings for lunting are emitting smoke or steam from a pipe and lighting a fire, torch or tobacco pipe. The word itself comes from either the Dutch word lont meaning a slow match or fuse or the Middle Low German lonte meaning a wick.

    Don't touch the thermostat.
    Turn the damn light off when you leave the room.
    Close the door! I'm not payin' to heat/cool the outside.

    And....naturally:
    GET OFF MY LAWN!

    I'm still troubled by what I did for that Klondike bar...

    "Watch where the fvck you're driving!"

    Should've had a co-pilot yelling at me this morning... navigating through a parking lot, I cut the corner too sharp and rode up over a curb. What a dumbass move; scraped the crap outa my front right alloy and when the car came off the curb it landed on the 'frame' behind the wheel and pushed the fender up. So the fender and maybe what it mounts to is trashed.

    Now the car I bought new in '15 and kept perfect is no longer perfect. Time to head to the bodyshop and I could see it easily be $2K to fix. I'm such a codger.

    the side mirror on my car costs over $1200 because of the motor, sensors, camera and heater. The more they improve safety and convenience the more they cost to repair. If the main computer gets fried it is close to $10,000. I (kinda) miss my old '66 VW Squareback. You could fix nearly everything with a screwdriver, soldering iron, duct tape, wire and wrenches.

    Yup. My 1st car was a '65 VW Bug with a sunroof. Nearly indestructible, as long as you adjust the valves every 3,000 miles. The heater would run you out of there, as long as it was summer. Great car for off-road cruising in Texas.
