Given both my work and my favorite pastimes involve being on a computer I'm well aware. I only visit the real world take care of bodily necessities and clean the house.

The one example from TFA confuses me though. Who doesn't always have a spare propane tank ready? One runs out, hook new one up, swap
empty next chance you get. You don't need a gauge at all.

I liked the internet more when it was a thing I used for maybe 1-2 hours a day.

It makes my actual job easier, but it's had a detriment effect on my non-work life, which is why I regularly "unplug" and go somewhere for a day or two without my laptop or phone.  It's bliss.

No it doesn't. Beep boop bep.

It's kind of quaint for Subby to post for us from 2002, but I'm not sure what his point is.

9 ads displayed over the course of the article: 2 scroll ups, 2 pop-up bars, 4 interstitial, 1 full page.

Desperate for that cash to the point of making your articles unreadable, eh, Atlantic?

I remember this headline when it was about dirigibles.

It was bullcrap then, and it's bullcrap now.
