I am confused by "using feedback efficiently for fills" -- 1) why italics? 2) "efficiently"? 3) I haven't heard "fills" used to describe guitar lines. Not trying to be snarky...seriously not understanding the meaning here.

commented on As Ridership on Light Rail Grows, Citizens of This City Need to Improve Their Social Intelligence
If seats are empty, then there is no reason not to put your bags on the seat next to you. I do this EVERY TIME I ride with a bag/luggage. You are keeping the aisles clear. IF SEATS BECOME FULL, you should move your bags before someone needs the seat. I also do this EVERY TIME. These photos tell us NOTHING about what the person with the bag next to him would do if seats started to fill up. And the language under the photos about who's socially evolved and who's not, that's just designed to piss the readers off and get comments/views, right? GOOD JOB, CHUCK!

Paragraph 1: snark and penis references.
Paragraph 2: mostly just snark.
Paragraph 3: stuff true about any piece of electronics including whatever device this post was written on.
Guess it doesn't matter WHAT the topic is here on Slog!

commented on How Many of Y'all Tried to Game Free Records From Columbia House Record Club?
No one has mentioned that all the clubs sent out postcards before the albums shipped, where you could say NO THANKS to that month's dreck. It was easy to miss the postcards, though. Rather than completely ripping them off, I used to sign up for BMG and actually fulfill the agreement - theirs was really easy and a much better deal than Columbia House, like they'd send you five free, you'd have to buy one at regular price and then get three more free after that. So even with postage you were getting like 10 for $18 total or something like that, as long as you immediately quit. I had a bunch coming to my house but to various fictional apartments there. They all made it to my mailbox. Postal carrier must have thought I was a goofball.
