This reminds me .. My first apartment was on the 2nd floor and had a balcony.  I had the newspaper delivered and they'd drop it in the public foyer.   One time, I asked them if instead of doing that, they could fling it up to my balcony, which was right by the foyer.  Sure, they said.

This went OK for months and saved time for both them and me.   Later, I got a call from the delivery manager who said they were only going to try flinging it one time from now on. (??)

Why?  "Well, the gal who flings it up there was accosted by a naked man."  Oh, that's terrible (it wasn't me.  For reals.) 

"Yeah, as she tried to fling it up to your balcony, this naked man was lurking and said something like 'I want to be your slave.'"

I thought about that, and said "Well .. if you're going to be accosted by a naked man, one who wants to be your slave is probably the best kind to be accosted by.  -- I mean, you could just say, 'drop and give me 1000 pushups' and then walk away."

Oh this reminds me of another thing I don't get - the Zucker Brothers.  Jerry's Wisconsin tourism ads were embarrassingly dumb.

Speaking of which...are there still places where teenage kids on bikes (or...gasp...on foot) still deliver local papers?

Here in Rochester, the local newspaper (and I use that term loosely for our local paper) is delivered by middle aged men driving around in beat up cars. Don't get me wrong - I have nothing against underemployed middle-aged people getting opportunities - but I miss the days of seeing a kid walking papers around the neighborhood.

Or maybe it's just that I'm old....

I think bike delivery is gone because you are no longer delivering 20-30 papers per block, now you're delivering 1-2 papers/block and driving 3 blocks to get to the next drop.

I just renewed my 7 day/week Charlotte Observer subscription.

Do you still walk naked to the end of your driveway to retrieve it?

In the small amount of time it took me to read this, I assumed you were going to promote gas or even electric fireplaces over real.  I was gearing up for a fight.  Then saw where you went. 

I figure this is either sarcasm, or you have the below video on loop for the holidays.  It's cool with me either way.

I tried starting our fire with a video, but it was tough to get it lit and it made the house smell funny.

Yep, those are fantastic.  The Weber Lighter Cubes are also good; I use them with the chimney.

but I can't find old newspapers - everyone I know that subscribed to the JS, myself included, no longer does. P&S and Menards flyers in the mail aren't enough when I'm grilling 4-5 days/week.  >:(

Fires just don’t do it for me. Gas, electric, wood, it doesn’t matter. If I ever need a quick fix, I suppose I could stare at the stove burner for a while...but that still hasn’t happened in 57 years.

I was having the same issue.  We'd grab a bunch of ads at the grocery store, but that was a hassle and we were always running out.  I tried the cubes and they're so easy I haven't looked back.  Honestly, one does the trick...two if you want to be aggressive.  Very, very simple.  And they're pretty cheap.

On Amazon, they show people using 2-3.  I don't see much point of that.  I usually just pop one out, put it on the grate, light it, and set the charcoal-filled chimney on top of it.  Done.  They work great in the fire pit too.

Did she start to fling it from further away...like far enough away to launch it through your patio door? Did she miss often on the first try after that?
