Na, replaced one overpriced thing for another and switched things around and this is how it ended up.

Below, a list of a few famous bugaboos of mine. Which do you agree with THE MOST? (You must choose one, even if the choice is hard or if your degree of annoyance for any is minuscule.)

A: Adults who ride bicycles on narrow-ish sidewalks instead of on the streets. // B: People at the table who blow on, say, hot soup in their spoon before eating it. // C: People who engage the cashier in banter when there is a line behind them. // D. People who drive big, boat-like cars on narrow city streets. // E. Drivers too timid to go out into the intersection to turn left, leaving everyone behind them to miss the light.

Yeah, I don't get it either. Maybe he means someone who does it throughout the bowl, even when it isn't necessary. My two year old does that.

Why does YouTube show the title and buttons on shorts? Make it go away after one second. It covers half of the video at least on mobile.

Same question can be asked for creators. why not make sure important parts aren't covered?

In pool we put English/english on the ball to make it go one way or the other. Should that be capitalized?
