    Battery life on the Pixel 2 I must say has been... uninspiring.
    I have a battery case for the Pixel 2 if you want it.
    I accidentally bought it thinking it was for the 2XL. I charged it, but couldn't use it.

    When he, and those of his ilk, start being nice to people like you and me (aka brown and black), then I'll consider it.
    I think there's a better chance of the current version of Kanye West becoming an elected official than ol' Combover being nice to brown people. Didn't he say the brown ones on the southern border are all rapists with the drugs and the guns, etc?

    I'm surprised here in the United States that there isn't a comprehensive Healthcare system in place.
    Sahib, I need a case of Guinness (all for me to drink) before I can even being to fully start to address your statement.

    It's not a backhanded comment I just made at you, it's just that there is a whole lot of context and history you may need to become aware of to address your level of surprise. Which is easier to share after the Guinness has gotten me relaxed.

    I wish I could tell you some of the things I see at work while I'm walking through inpatient floors, nursing facilities, government sponsored human service buildings, courthouses, and public housing...

    ...it ain't pretty. So when ol' Combover and the politrickians in DC pass knuckleheaded policies that my colleagues and I have to sift through the cruft to still be able to serve those in need, it only fuels my long-standing skepticism of elected officials being competent and ethical at their jobs.

    How you were able to put elected officials, competent and ethical in the same short sentence is simply amazing. The Bard is smiling down on you right now.

    Man, I have to attempt to sound eloquent to be taken seriously in the hospital setting...lol.

    Seriously though, my own outlook on politics has been that some people go in with good intentions and the machinations of the field either, distort, discourage or devour their well intended efforts. I remember only seeing my elected official back home growing up once - during election season.

    I have my presentation tonight, so I just submitted the presentation and paper. The struggle felt real when I felt so tired so it was challenging to write all of my presentation notes before going to sleep, even though my body would have preferred sleeping.

    I wish this was the last thing but nope, I have to finish the mammoth thing of a paper with 4 pages left to go. Thankful to finish the presentation (the submitting part anyway, the actual thing goes down tonight) and paper but I'm so looking forward to being done with the other one. Really looking forward to the 2 week school break before taking just one class for the whole summer basically and then a week break again before Fall semester begins.

    Thank you. Saturday is looking like an ideal right now. I don't regret taking 2 classes at a time but I'm looking forward to just one and being able to do fun things, like watch games and go to them and read whatever I want to read.

    So a few dilemmas.
    Should I sell the Idol 4S or try and install the latest Windows 10 Mobile update on it? Or just keep it around for nostalgia sake? I haven't turned the device on since April 11. Used it as a GPS in South Africa and that is about it.

    Am also debating whether to splurge around $170 and get a used Pixel (first gen 32GB version) to try out Android P. Definitely not going to install Beta (perhaps even Alpha in this case) software on my main device.

    And the last dilemma is to cave in and get a tablet SIM card from TMO. They want $10 per month for it.

    Decisions, decisions.

    In fun news, I am taking our team out to a MB2 Raceway location for go karting.
    We got a great deal $48 per person, 3 races (14 laps per race = 42 laps total) and a T-shirt.
    I will see if I can get some nice pictures via the Pixel.

    Wow, that's basically a month ago. Wait, don't you have a 925 for that same reason? Maybe try to sell it for a bit and see how that goes for you. You seem to have the talent to get stuff gone (and get stuff in general, but that's a side note) so it depends whether it would really be worth it or not. The used Pixel could be more fun to try out.

    I hear you mention your tablet quite a bit. If the sim for it can justify the cost, why not do it? If you use it enough on WiFi and you download things on it, which I think you mentioned before, it might not be. tl;dr: if you had enough times you regret not having a sim for the tablet in your day to day, possibly do it. If not, pass on it.

    925 is for WP8.1 nostalgia I guess. But since the OS is no longer supported, I guess it might not be a bad idea to ditch it.

    Idol 4s is for WM10 nostalgia.

    The tablet add-on is $10/month. My go to tablet is WiFi - I left my data capable Samsung Tab S2 in the seat pocket of American Airlines if you recall - so the SIM would have to go into my iPad Air 2 mostly to watch Netflix on the road. Funny thing is I now have three iPads in the house that are all data capable and no Android tablet that takes a SIM card.

    Narrator: The original owner of the 925 is now firmly entrenched in the fruit orchard ecosystem.

    Ergo it basically is a glorified paperweight. Plus MSFT abandoned WP8.1 completely so...

    Sounds like "what's hers ain't yours and what's yours is hers" setup to me. Lol.

    Still, the 925 is one of my all time favorites and sometimes I think about getting one and flashing WP 8 Denim on it.
