Music of the (Brief) Night [OT]

Cidu Bill on Aug 21st 2017

I’m surprised I haven’t seen any Eclipse Playlist.  I can’t think of anything other than the very obvious “Total Eclipse of the Heart” and “Sounds of Silence” (and then “Here Comes the Sun” when it’s over) — but of course my brain doesn’t really function this early.

Her Day

Okay, presumably what Mrs. Olson means is that when she was a kid, kids didn’t drink caffeine. Factually incorrect, but at least her comment makes sense.

I have no clue what Frazz is talking about, though: “back when Mrs. Olson was an adult”?

And is he saying that people only drank 6 ounces of coffee?

She

Cidu Bill on Aug 8th 2017

Voodoo Chicken: Not a CIDU, but wondering if people do this with their phones? I have heard of people assign gender and even names to their cars, so it does not seem like a stretch that they may name their phones. Computers and smartphones do get device names, but people tend to just leave them on default or of the variety “Bob’s phone” to figure out which device it is when plugged into a computer.

It seems like a millennial thing to do, if I’m stereotyping.

Well, who but a millennials, who grew up with computers and smart phones, could be naming them?

That aside, I’ve never heard of anybody naming their device — and I think referring to it as “she” is even more unlikely.
