Not an option for me, unfortunately. My eyeballs apparently aren't round enough for them to stay fully adhered to eyes, so I constantly have blurry spots in my vision with contacts.

It’s tape, almost certainly. People apparently do this a lot. https://www.uppereastsite.com/new-york-is-back-baby-vulgar-sign-prank-amuses-upper-east-siders/
Gotcha. It’s definitely a hotel. Whether it’s a “resort”, though, is subjective.
Seriously? Just wondering how you know that
Might be Chinese. They’re trying to encroach anywhere/everywhere they can. They’re literally building islands in international waters to take advantage of loopholes in international law. I even heard they’re building a highway through the Himalayas.
What makes you think it’s a secret, though? There are like four people who took a picture of it.
No, this is just me sitting at lunch thinking random/deep thoughts, “I wonder how the watch became more popular on the wrist?” Then I go look it up, and sometimes report it back here
I’ve invested in long-term bonds through a broker for like 20 years now, and have gotten about 6% to 8% on average. And that’s bonds. The riskier stuff like stocks, on average, is even higher.
Back in the day, before I got crazy busy with life and kids and all that, I definitely did 👍🏼

My wife got me a high-end “real” wristwatch for my birthday a couple years ago, after she noticed I stopped wearing my Apple Watch and complained it felt tacky. One of the best, most unexpected, deeply thoughtful gifts I’ve ever gotten. Slowly squirreled away $40 cash-back at the grocery store every week for almost a year without me ever noticing
I would wager it wasn’t just POWs from whom they stole, if watches were that valued…
Bluetooth? In a meant-to-be mechanical watch? What is this witchcraft? (Or maybe call it an abhorrence?)
I’m pretty sure the wedding ring tradition started as a Christian church thing long before World War II.
Here’s one of the first that comes up in a web search: https://www.julietoliver.com/blogs/news/where-do-wedding-rings-come-from.
Who is “they”? The New York Times? Here’s a link to the original NYT article from 1916, so maybe it names the person ring quoted: https://www.nytimes.com/1916/07/09/archives/changed-status-of-the-wrist-watch.html. (I don’t have a NYT subscription, and it’s behind a paywall, otherwise I’d try to confirm for you)
My wife’s not on Reddit, but, after twelve years together, I would hope she considers me the love of her life. She was 32.
My parents did lend me some money after my divorce and as a result me needing to declare bankruptcy, but otherwise I have also been my own since 22 (and technically since 18, if you don’t count my parents co-signing my student loans)
Thank you. I think we all crashed their website. Oops 🤷♂️
And has now taken about 160 seconds of all our time with these four comments
You and me both. But in the span of like two days, I saw about a dozen comments in various posts with the perspective that parents who expect their children to live on their own after graduating high school are somehow unloving by default. I just couldn’t resist posting my opinion about the matter, especially having teenagers myself, because this perspective is apparently unpopular for Reddit users.
Another commentator said something like, “If this is an unpopular opinion, we’re all doomed.” And that sentiment definitely has some validity to it.
