I was talking with a few friends yesterday and we were trying to think of products that our grandfathers would have used regularly that are fading away or are no longer existant today. We came up…Continue

"Both my grandfathers passed on while I was very young, so I have no memory of them.
My mother and other relatives have shared with me their impressions of them so that I would have something to pass on about them to my kids:
They were both assholes."
"I never knew my grandfather (either of them; they both passed before i was born. From what i have heard of them, i think it a blessing in thin disguise). However, from my paternal grandfather, i was given his shaving brush and tobacco pipe. I…"
"Pocket Watch, handkerchief, pen knife, suspenders, notebook with important phone numbers, addresses, quotes, appointments, etc. He had a hanging calendar that he actually used. He always wore an American Flag pin on whatever suit he wore. He also…"

"This might work. I spent a night going through his 100 day action plan, and all his actions. Like I said, 16/18 items on his list have been completed. One is in the process, one found a better deal, and one has been recently supplanted by a…"
"I was thinking of this in reading someone's report on his first 100 days. It was a friendly report, but it amounted to 3 parts:
* Actions Trump took without regard to whether they actually worked
* Good things that happened that we'd…"
"I think most Presidents are surprised at how little power they have, and how difficult it is to get things done. I recall similar stories about Obama. They were framed very differently. Where Trump is an idiot who's surprised at how hard his…"
"Sounds like time for a shift. Here are some ideas:
* Read up on depression, or consult a professional. Does it describe you well? I know there are commonalities in grief and depression, but grief is situation-driven and fades (IDK…"
