    Well you just hit a nerve for me. The same ninjas that would fall down on the floor and swallow their tongue when I called a magazine a clip would in the next breath talk about their Remmy Shottie. Remember the scene in JAWS with the fingernails on the chalkboard-SHOTTIE is that for me. Thank you for picking that scab!

    Nowadays you source parts from a junkyard for your car instead of finding them.

    Not sure that there is an upgrade from Delta faucets since they are, I believe, the last brand that manufactures all of their faucets here in America. I happen to believe that their quality is consistently better than everyone else’s brand name.

    Probably due to the fact that in homes built today, the public use part of the homes tend to follow the open floor plan/multi-use space rules of design. The private use areas: bedrooms, bathrooms, and many office spaces still follow the separate rooms concept to some degree.

    In all seriousness, I think you're right. It is the jargon that the Jaegers and MacNamars use. As you said, YouTube gave it/them the exposure.

    It is part of woke culture.

    You know, diversity and inclusion.

    The world is going to change, don't sweat it, roll with the changes.

    I'm trying to think of some more cliches but those have probably changed

    Open carry would have prevented this
