I’m trying to come up with a dark moment in my life that comes close to comparing to this and am coming up short. Maybe I’m just boring or something.

I suppose someone with more dark moments has a...

Better yet - turn them all off and listen to NPR. Or stick your hand in a blender. Either would be better than watching cable news.

I recognize that there are changes, but I just can’t care enough to really notice what they are or be able to determine if old is better or worse than new.

Notes for future Fs: If you happen to go first and are dealt FFF, it's probably best to investigate an L and be honest about the investigation. I think the L credit on you would benefit you more...

How much of the cost of a house would be replaced by the bricks? Seems like it would be just the framing, which probably only accounts for about 20% or so of the total cost anyway. And would the...
