    I'm not generally a headphone guy, but it was nice to get sucked into 'just one more song' last night. Music is the shit.

      Perfectly normal for the planet, it comes and goes in millennia-long cycles. Just stay hydrated, it's nothing to worry about.

      Definitely so. Still stuck at home but having a sense of productivity (hopefully at a job that isn't horrible) is an immensely rewarding thing. Best of luck with it!

      Depends on which city. I lived in tough cities for 40 years. Yeah, it toughened me up. But it also broke me a few times. Raleigh, with its metro area of 1 million, is a sleepy town—but I'll take it!

      Trick question, the correct answer is that you do not listen to music while eating because the sickening sound of your mastication overwhelms and destroys the sonic integrity of the music.

      It's as much of a mental challenge as it is physical. I bonked after mile 9 because I didn't bring enough calories, and it took a lot of willpower to run the last mile instead of just walking it.

      Thankfully the vendor was nice enough to offer a full replacement, just need to swallow about $6 in shipping back and forth to their store, sigh.

      Ducky One 2 SF is a pleasure to type on (not that I'm a connoisseur of good keyboards... yet?) but I'm 2 for 2 on QC problems.
