    I need a physical book, when I try to read on the tablet I put up some music.
    Then someone sends me messages, a new video is posted on tube.
    So many distractions

    Get a real e-reader not a tablet. Its a much better experience anyways and it eliminates the draw of the www.

    Hi
    Yes, you are in the sanest (and fattest) category.

    I am also a physical book man. I tried an eReader but I just found something really odd about it. I usually buy books second hand anyway.

    Still, I wouldn't say an eReader is the death of intellectualism or anything, it's just a new way of distributing books which I'm fine with (aside from all corporate copyright bullshit it enables).

    I used to feel the same, but im a extremely fast and picky reader. And that coupled with book prices means ill end up spending 300+ euros on books in some months (i generally read one or two books a day, if i read). And pirating books is so easy, 1mb or so each and its super fast. Not proud of it but still. (i used to be one of those few teens that actually bought books with my allowance, although if i liked a series i made my mum read them and she generally tended to buy the entire series instantly if she liked them)

    In the beginning i didnt even have a e-reader or tablet because that was before they became popular, i used to read books upon books on my pc and laptop (yellow upon blue best colour scheme). And when the choice was to read nothing or read on a PC/e-reader the choice was clear. So i became used to them. I think i would still prefer a real book but its been sooo long so im not sure.


    I do recommend/buy all the great ones i read though, so i kinda justify my piracy like that but i still feel bad about it. Not bad enough to spent that much money though.

    Here is another thing I don't get.

    People that tattoo the name and/or date of birth for their kid(s).
    Just in case you should forget?

    Dementia is real, yo. I know the date, can't remember year Was an awkward moment in ER when I brought my kid for a bee sting in the ear.
    I always knew there is a reason for wedding date on the wedding ring, it is a lifesaver.

    Nope, it turns out Las Vegas, while being one of the hottest places on earth on certain days, is cooler than you need about 90% of the time, so, no. In fact, the desert is a very good place to build data centers. Very high end data centers.

    Dunno if you were hinting at the NSA one, but i got curious and found this:

    http://www.usclimatedata.com/climate...tates/usut0357

    Highs are 32 °C in July, which is pretty much nothing. It just looks barren because it doesnt get a lot of precipitation (at least thats how i read the data).
