Discover Bank is working my nerves with nanny-like security. I'm so sick of having to input a texted security code every few days. News flash: If I'm logging into my account from the same computer then I am the SAME PERSON. I wish I could disable this nonsense, nobody is going to take the risk of jail time hacking some random dude's bank account with like 2 grand in it.

Man, when you really think about it, America is extremely young.
It kind of annoys me when people talk about history like "Ugh, that was, like, 60 years ago. It was so long ago. Get over it already!"
You don't seem to understand.
In terms of history, 50 or 60 years is not long ago at all. It's extremely recent. You know why? Because in 50 or 60 years, the absolute majority of us here will still be alive (barring any unfortunate incidents happening to any of us). We will still be alive, and we will still remember what happened in 2015 and what will happen in 2016.
50, 60, 80, or 100 years is actually very recent history. It may have been quite a while before our time, but it is recent, considering there are still people here today who were alive when that stuff happened, and there are people here today whose parents were alive during that time.
You have to think of history in terms of the people, not the individual years. One lifetime is actually an incredibly short frame of history, even though it's a long time for one of us.
I'm sure there are still some people alive today who were kids during The Great Depression. They'd be in their 70s or 80s now, depending on if they were born in the 20s or 30s.
"That was 80 years ago. It was sooo long ago. Get over it." doesn't change the fact that what they lived through was terrible.
The 1954-1968 American Civil Rights Movement? There are people from both sides of that who are still alive today! You bet they are!
History is a string of human lifetimes, and every lifetime is a very short frame of time in which a lot of things can happen and each human can do and change a lot of things. The repercussions of what happens in that human lifetime will be felt in the generations that follow. Just because it was during your parents' or grandparents' times does not mean it's irrelevant now. Its effects can still be felt today because it has affected what the generations at the time have done, which has led to where we are today. Each event in history is like throwing a rock into a pond - the waves reach out into the future generations through history.

Playing Darkest Dungeon, something happened that amused me...
I had named a character after Slate Grey an OC by @Nuserame
Anyway, I attempted to use an item on him
He wouldn't accept it, and in response to me trying to use the item on him he said "I said I wanted a pony!"
(Another reason for me to like that game)

Hmmm, might wanna send them a complaint about it then, because what you have sounds like either the product itself is horribly made or you have a defective product, wouldn't really know myself, swapped to logitech a while back.

Why do people think that puking is funny?
