    Interesting observation. I use my fingers when communicating numbers to others (like ordering 2 beers, etc.), but will start with my thumb if I'm counting to myself. It just seems an easier and more natural motion to me. I guess I'm a half-poser...

    "Oh well, at least it can't get any worse..."

    Stop ******* saying that and jinxing it! Ever seen a disaster movie? They always say something like that and it always gets worse.

    Imagine working in this environment.

    "Make it so crewman Jones!"


    "When he was running the Army's Intelligence and Security Command, Alexander brought many of his future allies down to Fort Belvoir for a tour of his base of operations, a facility known as the Information Dominance Center. It had been designed by a Hollywood set designer to mimic the bridge of the starship Enterprise from Star Trek, complete with chrome panels, computer stations, a huge TV monitor on the forward wall, and doors that made a 'whoosh' sound when they slid open and closed. Lawmakers and other important officials took turns sitting in a leather 'captain's chair' in the center of the room and watched as Alexander, a lover of science-fiction movies, showed off his data tools on the big screen.


    "'Everybody wanted to sit in the chair at least once to pretend he was Jean-Luc Picard,' says a retired officer in charge of VIP visits." https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2013/sep/15/nsa-mind-keith-alexander-star-trek

    Guy in front office at a company I worked for always leaned back in his chair and pause then say "at this time in.point" always had a hard time not laughing out loud.

    This furniture store where I grew up used to have an annual going-out-of-business sale.

    at least 78 percent of the english speaking world is now using the adverb "literally" with absolutely no comprehension of what the word itself means or how it should be deployed

    If I hear one more person say, “Twenty-three skidoo!” or, “Oh you kid!” again, I’m going to scream. They all think they’re the cat’s pajamas, running around in their raccoon coats and straw boaters.

    It probably started around the time I began fingerpicking...it’s like a thumb and fingers roll now. ;)
