Cool because of this sharks' ability to adapt to freshwater or salt water.

Facebook and social media, because depressing. Peoples' selfies lie about their level of happiness, and some users buy it, and fail in their internal comparison.

Being glued to a portable device, for same reason.

Also because (and this reason may be preposterous but that’s ok) within a generation, people so devoted to screen time may lack the skills necessary to find a mate and help propagate the species.

I think CYM spends lots of time on FB looking at Doomsday pages...that way, all these things he comes up with pop up on his page and thus is easy for him to pass on to us!

Obviously CYM hasn't checked out Tinder. Lots of social "propagating" going on there!

False. Unfortunately, it's just that I remember too much of what I read and hear, at least as it concerns this subject matter. If, one time in 1995, I read that something was a deadly killer, I never forgot it. These things have accumulated to the point where I now know, realize, and accept that indeed, Everything Is Going to Kill Us.

Your average ATM, because bacteria from people’s filthy fingertips makes them about as clean as your average public restroom seat.

Hah! This thread's become so toxic, so infectious, so environmentally degrading, so anxiety-ridden that just contemplating it'll kill us for sure.

It is amusing to read of all the dithering that could be done, if I was of a mind to do so.

oh! I've got one! We have key fobs to open all the doors here at work. If you don't have your fob, you have to punch a code on the key pad. I won't use the pad because of all the germs that build up from everyone who doesn't remember their fob. And when the lock clicks open, I push on the door so I don't have to touch the handle either.

:whew: and here I was worried I was phobia-less laugh

Our bank has huge bottles of Purel hanging on the walls. But I will now need to have handiwipes or purel in the car when I go through the ATM drive through.

the dispensers on these are full of germs...so, you should have a box of alcohol wipes next to the purel dispenser so you can wipe off the plunger before touching it with your hands...

doesn't using the Purell after touching the plunger take care of that?

But aren't all sanitizers harming our immune system and lessening our ability to fight germs naturally?

Back when our eldest was a toddler, my wife was making a return at a customer service counter in the local K-Mart, all involved with the exchange then looking down to find our son standing up in the cart, enthusiastically licking back and forth along the edge of the counter, just about where the arm pits of most patrons would rest while conducting business. Considering all the sleeveless halter tops, wife-beater shirts and such that even back then were seen in the place in summertime, my wife said she almost upchucked on the spot.

He survived it in fine style to grow up to be a pretty fine fellow, now 32 years old.

Didn't look through the thread, but somehow doubt this was already shared. In Texas, having a poorly-controlled drive with your frisbee whilst playing frisbee golf can get you shot at.

Then again, it's Texas, and what won't get you shot at down there? On second thought, could this have been Pale?? Darn kid's getting on his lawn!

Reminds me of the young Texan, John Wesley Hardin. He is buried in El Paso and was said to have killed 30 men. Bob Dylan immortalized him in song:

John Wesley Harding was a friend to the poor
He traveled with a gun in every hand
All along the countryside, he opened many a door
But he was never known to hurt an honest man

Twas down in Chaney County, a time they talk about
With his lady by his side, he took a stand
And soon the situation there was all but straightened out
For he was always known to lend a helping hand.

All across the telegraph, his name it did resound
But no charge held against him could be proved
And there was no man around who could track or chain him down
He was never known to make a foolish move.


But a lawman shot him in the back as he was rolling dice at a downtown saloon.

I'm afraid that Dylan may have romanticized Mr. Hardin's life a bit. I'm pretty sure that some of his exploits were a little over reported, but I dont think he was a real warm and fuzzy kinda guy. Once out of prison, he did become an attorney. Not real successful, but an attorney nonetheless. His busniness cards had bullet holes in them. And he was shot and killed.
