common snappers do *not* break 100 lbs; the record is about 80, most are 1/2 that (still a damn big turtle!). That'd be the alligator snapping turtle. They're not even the same genus. Both have been harvested for soups extensively in the past; the common snappers population is doing well while the alligator snapper's is not.

They amazing animals :)

that's pretty neat. It's not too much smaller than my 1st apartment :) Small enough to qualify for small without being totally unworkable and awful IMO. Great mix. Seems sort of heavy on beds though, and given the tight space I might figure out a way to replace them with storage or something.

burn me and hold a giant freaking wake with more junk food and booze and celebrate a life that's been amazingly good? It's not death that scares anyone I know. It's what happens during. Does it hurt? Do you feel for your family and loved ones? Or does it just fade out? Will my affairs be in order? How will my wife and kids take it?

OHJESUS! That would so stop me right there. Creepy as hell. I though ti meant like minor contractions, not a dead animal doing the watusi. Jesus H Christ on a sidecar! *shudder*

A 20" pizza has an area of what, 2.2 square feet or so? so you'd be looking at 1,980,000 20" pizzas? I can see 2 million pies in a day.

Not to mention that after 200+ years you CAN talk about long term implications. I mean, it's not as well informed as you may be 500+ years out, but you can always say that the fallout is not complete. There's certainly been measurable impacts at that point, you're past the immediate confusion...you an start talking about the impact an event had at the multiple century mark!

anything that's primarily a service is going to have a high percentage of operational cost in labor/benefits. That is hardly surprising. How much of, say, a cleaning agencies budget goes to salaries?

I feel bad for the USPS; people want them to turn a profit but if they do things to help them do that--reduce delivery schedules (3 days a week would be fine in most cases), close some offices, etc, people get mad and the government gets involved.

Why would you even do that? You deep fry something it taste like...whatever oil you fried it in. I mean really, waste of a good strawberry...

So cultures can't fade out due to other factors besides imperialism?

The thing that gets me is what people want to do about dying cultures/languages: Do you want to force children of those cultures NOT to speak a different language or live in a different culture if they so choose? Do you want to force a child to learn Apache or Lingala or Busuu and use it rather than whatever the local predominant language is?

someone beat me to saying "the fire" and even cited the same person :( I'm slow.

In actuality? Assuming my wife is out of the house I'm getting my dog. No way am I letting Scruffy burn.

mellie928; many junior colleges also offer votec training. I'm starting welding courses at one to become a certified welder through the AWS.

I agree with some of Mike's points; we've certainly made a fetish of higher education. The only reason I tried college was because it was socially unacceptable for me not to go. And god knows a degree doesn't equal a good job either; I don't have a degree and make more than my wife (who's got a science degree).

@ Stacy lee: from experience, I beg to differ. It isn't the penis so much as the scrotal sack. While it's flopping around during a shake off can get splashed/dunked...and it feels incredibly gross.

A toiletries kit is not one item :p And counting the stuff in the picture, there's more like 20 things...still not a lot of course.

But I'm with some of hte other commentators; how often does he borrow stuff from other people? Cause if he "owns' 15-20 items but borrows stuff daily then he's not a minimalist, he's a mooch.

jeez, neatorama can be rough on my self esteem :D

In all seriousness, kind of inspiring. I hope I'm in that good of shape at 40, let alone 80 or 90!

Call your local 211, and see if the AARP is hosting any Vita Sites in your area rather than going to these. It's probably too late for this year, but next year it may save rather a lot of money.
