What the fellow above is saying is not something that you would normally reveal on the first date. Or the second. This sort of admission falls under the category of inappropriate disclosure a subject we have touched upon before. We all have our "baggage" of course, and timing is everything. But having said that, it is indeed true that there is someone out there for everyone.

Why are so many products over-engineered when it comes to their packaging? It annoys me at how much effort is required to open certain things such as CDs, DVDs or electronic products. And oh, what fun it is to open a pill bottle only to discover it has more cotton than contents (see illustration). Most packaging should not require the use of special tools or inordinate amounts of time to gain access to the product itself. I understand that some forms of packaging are anti-theft, or tamper resistant and so on. I can appreciate that maybe the manufacturer has some concern for my safety, or at the very least is trying to avoid a lawsuit. But c'mon...it all gets so very tedious. In this era of "reduce, recycle, and reuse", how much of this junk is necessary?
