See, I am at North Memorial Blood Center in Plymouth, Minnesota where I finally followed through on a commitment I've been "yeah yeah yeah"ing about for YEARS now.

I can happily report that my commode contained only clean water when it began to misbehave, so this is not a gross post (a grosst? : / ).

If you’re happy with your current credit card(s), why add more? There really is no net benefit to your rating. Yes, you may increase your credit limit, but without a corresponding increase in salary, you’re rating takes a hit. If you close another card, you’re rating takes a hit. Fr8y-baby, you kno...Jump to post
It's many years now since my bad-credit days, and the signal that those days were WAYYY over was when I got approved for the - all bow - Chase Sapphire Preferred Visa card back in 2015. On the same app spree I got approved for cards from Citibank and U.S. Bank. This stoked my appetite to score appro...Jump to post

If you check Bank of America's website, you wil notice that the Cash Rewards card is now issued as a Visa, and the workhorse "Bank of America Credit Card" (which has been one of the Visa cards I carry for about seven years now) is now issued as a MasterCard.

Getting an answer to the question "Will An AI Robot Ever Be Smarter Than Man?" requires you to specify which man.
Or at least which sort of man.

The big takeaway from this is that - as some of us have known for a while - Chuck Schumer is simply an idiot.

What matters to me most of all here is the discovery (by me) of a place called "Yampa." Of course everyone knows about Tampa, Fla. and Boise, Idaho has a suburb called Nampa, and then last year I found out there is an NRHP-listed post office in a Texas town called "Pampa." So bas...Jump to post
I worked as an MSP taxi starter once upon a time. The paper given to pax is not a "ticket". It is a customer information card.

I haven't been aboard an American Airlines flight since 1977. :boggled: A few weeks ago I booked MSP-PHL-HVN round trip at AA.com, and completed the trip on the 16th, but all four trips were operated by Republic, so it is basically still the case tht I haven't been aboard an American Airlines flight...Jump to post
So I've actually operated this flight before, and can certainly attest that showing up at 5:05 for a 5:53 is generous.

This morning I got a breakfast burrito from "Burrito Elito" near Gate C17 at PHL. It was really tasty.
However, the aircraft I then boarded was an Embraer, not a Boeing.
Why, with AA4614 the ONLY flight scheduled out of HVN (Gate 3) this a.m., and with eight or nine people (including moi), some of whom had checked bags (including moi (the passenger; I'm not a bag)) still not past the TSA checkpoint, would the gate guy announce "Boarding for Gate 3 is now closed...Jump to post

If you flew into an airport where it's code at the time was, IST but is now ISL (or was BKK but it's now DMK) would you update your log or would you leave it unedited as it was?

Living in Washington, I can confirm this is the case. Legal residents and citizens can get an enhanced drivers license that even lets you cross into the Canadian border.

You really can't invent this kind of stupidity.
