I have never seen Wayne’s World. But this is eerily similar to the interaction of my dad first asking out my mom.

No one likes it when I talk about aging. I don’t even like it. But I can’t help myself. I’ve developed this weird habit of randomly watching these YouTube channels that have cult followings. Girls in their teens and early 20s talking about just anything. It’s just fascinating to see the skeletons of what still works on YouTube as the Internet shifts away from that.

ANYWAY, sometimes these internet famous young girls say things that make me feel really old. Like having only seen one Matthew McConaughey movie in their lives (his last name is so terrible to spell) or referring to “The Fifth Element” as “this really old 90s movie.” WHAT. I know, I know. That’s perfectly natural, but geeze.

OK, but then here’s something that made me feel both young and inadequate. Avril Lavigne is my exact same age. I actually thought she was older. Just because she was already a star when I was just some dumb high school student and I didn’t realize she must’ve been a teen star or forgot.

This is just garbled rambling. See ya.

Wait I’m not done. What IS Avril Lavigne? She looks dead inside in every video and she hasn’t advanced her musical style at all in her entire career. And I get that she’s completely manufactured, but it seems like they’re not even trying. And also my brain just hurts from her new racist music video. WHAT IS SHE?

17 Incredible Dioramas Made Of Marshmallow Peeps

My office had a Peep diorama competition. I had not made a diorama since 3rd grade. 20 year gap, y’all. Still got it.

For the record, My 3rd grade diorama was a representation of a dwelling of the Iroquois Native Americans. My adult diorama involved spray painted candy.

This caption on this CNN thing is straight up incorrect. The zone thing does not get passengers on in the least amount of time. I usually board before my zone is called. A. because they let you and B. there’s no reason to feel bad because, according to an actual study on plane boarding methods, it speeds up the boarding for everyone.
While letting everyone get on at once isn’t the most efficient method, it’s still faster and more efficient than the zone method often used by airlines. It’s mentioned in this article. (That I did research and reporting for.)
Most airlines, however, board passengers in blocks, starting at the rear and working forward. The study’s most surprising finding:
With typical boarding, line-jumping is beneficial. “It actually speeds the process for everyone if you board before your turn,” says ASU’s Menkes van den Briel.
