Good for you, a hail damaged VW wouldn't be a good look for anyone.

I never hold the elevator for anyone (unless its a smoking hot chick) and you're an asshole if you expect anyone to hold one for you.

Prior to the Alamo Bowl last month, I was holding the hotel elevator door open so a young mom with two toddlers and a stroller with an infant could get on. Three high school football players (wearing their All-American sweatshirts) cut in front of her to pile in. All of a sudden a loud voice from out of my sight said, “get off guys, and let the lady on”. Coach was pretty embarrassed at the lack of basic manners.

Beer pong is a terrible game
When I was younger, it was cool. But any grown adult who plays drinking games are fucking losers. Just drink like a normal adult. No need to play a game for drinking.

Honeycrisp apples are very overrated. Jazz is where it’s at. 

I like some jazz, but don't know what Branch/genre it is.   Think background music for Taxi Driver.  What type of jazz is that?

If someone does the human blockade thingy in a public roadway and fucks up traffic for everyone else, it should be legal to plow them over.

Your freedom ends where mine begins, so GTFo of the way.

musicians that don't care about being truly proficient with their instruments really annoy me

Punk rock probably isn't for you.

neither end of the spectrum is for me-- I don't appreciate the "technical for the sake of being technical" players who strangle the soul out of music

but yes, punk rock and the like was what I had in mind

Try "Kind of Blue" Miles Davis. Let me know if that is what you mean and I can suggest more.

If you only own one jazz album, that's the one to own.

Sleazy? That's not sleazy. If you want sleazy, check out On the Corner.

I'm OK with price gouging during emergency situations:

1. It would teach people to prepare for things in advance. The more people who are prepared, the better off everyone is.

2. It prevents hoarding. If toilet paper cost 10x the normal price, I would only buy the smallest package available, if I were in need, and not five 95 roll mega packs from Costco.

3. It ensures that items are available to those who absolutely need/want them, even if its at a premium price. There's people all over my Nextdoor feed begging for hand sanitizer, disinfecting wipes, etc. because they just had surgery, they're old and scared that won't survive a Coronavirus infection, etc. For an extra $50 they could get some hand sanitizer or N95 masks.

Well there's also a difference between "gouging" and ""supply vs demand".

10x price increase?  GTFO. 

But if retailers want to raise the price 150 or 200%? Sure, that's just good old fashioned capitalism.

If its needed for health or emergency i agree.  Otherwise if its an item or service of choice or merely meets a want i'm for charging what someone is willing to pay.
