    Quickly skimming Google about it, it seems when you check it yourself that is called a soft check and doesn't affect it. If some would be creditor checks it that is a hard check and causes it to change, (stupid.)

    isn't that - to quote a former attorney general of yours - just bullshit? if i'm going to buy 6 'homes' and four cars for each of those i get thirty hard checks and my rating goes through the bottom besides my paying for all of that with cash out of a briefcase.

    this sucks!


    ... eta: i have no problem with your fbi eyeing my briefcase because they think who pays cash your place needs to be some sort of [insert the bad guy of the week here]

    Pro tip: in order to ensure your cake will stay moist, eat it all in one sitting.

    Eat dessert first. And last. And again at bedtime.

    Easy to see why I work out 45-60 minutes a day and I'm still overweight.

    Dear Women of America: welcome to 50 years ago. Your physical and emotional well-being is controlled by the government, but a man can amass as many AR-15s as he likes.

    How bizarre a country is potentially banning the termination of a fetus but doesn't seem concerned that the same child could be killed by a bullet before its 18th birthday.

    Well, we also insist on using the old English measurements, when the rest of the planet uses metric.

    In the great family of nations, we're definitely among the black sheep.

    Yesterday I was at work and walked from the warehouse into the store to get something from electrical department and I did like a double take when I saw "Star Trek: Of Gods and Men" playing on one of the big 65" or 75" TVs. An (whose name rhymes with Han, so I call him Solo) said he was just showing some customer a sound bar and so went to Youtube and that was the first thing he randomly selected. It was a bit weird!

    I don't know why, I've kind of lost interest in dessert over the last few years. I only have some when I'm out to dinner with my dad.

    At home, the closest equivalent is...some Jack Daniels honey whiskey. :ouch: :D

    I was taking a load of my late husband's clothes to donate to the Salvation Army and on the way I turned on the radio to the 60s station. It was playing the Supremes "My World is Empty Without You" so I turned it off as it was too painful. After10 minutes or so I turned the radio back on and it was playing 3 Dog Night "One is the Loneliest Number". So turned it off again. The Universe is messing with me.

    I hope those all those left-leaning people who sat out voting for Clinton in 2016 are pleased with themselves, because today's decision is a direct result of that election.

    I'm not afraid of a man who wants a bunch of AR-15's... I'm terrified of the man who wants one AR-15 and a big bag full of 30 round magazines.

    The guy who wants a bunch of AR's typically wants to be able to arm himself and all his friends when the government takes over and establishes a police state. Which he is convinced is going to happen, especially if the Second Amendment is taken away*. The guy who just wants a bunch of magazines is another story.

    *Highly unlikely.
