I went to Venice recently, it was a very nice place. Where have you gone on holiday, John?

Good evening John.

I'm stuck at my homeland because of college issues that I need to solve immediately. I'll be probably keep stuck in this place for a long time, so... I wish I had a holiday like yours.

Sincerely, John.

Dear John,
I have a mouse infestation and the smart rodents eat my bait without setting the traps off. I find it ironic that I am the one actually feeding them, ha

>peanuts, honey and salt
I'd throw in raisins, and eat that myself.

The key is to leave nothing for the mice to eat.
Dry goods need steel or glass containers; even steel has limits.

Hey John,
A neighbor of mine once had an issue with mice. He had good results with a trap made from a two-liter soda bottle, with the top cut off, inverted, and inserted in the body of the bottle. Same method one would use to make a soda bottle into a fish trap, really, instructions are all over google. Anyway, in the fullness of time he eventually successfully caught all mice in his residence, and released them into the wild on the other side of town.

Best of luck with your infestation.
-John

Doesn't work. They'll eat wood, insulation, anything and everything. They move inside because its warm and they don't want to freeze to death. They'll eat anything to stay alive until spring comes.

Either trap them or they'll eat through some wiring and start a house fire, assuming you get tired of the fuse/breaker blowing so you stick a bigger amp fuse/breaker in there.

Hey John

I'm glad to hear you are feeling at least a little better. Sometimes hot tea helps me when I'm feeling under the weather but it's different for everyone I guess.

Best wishes

Hey john,

please try to be healthier in the future, an active lifestyle, fruits, vitamins, and a lot of water will help to deter such an illness. I wish you good luck in the future john.

John

Kinda neat.

Talk about kinda neat stuff here, I guess.

The moon is quite nice when you look at it through a telescope.

Any old telescope will do, pick up a basic spyglass at a garage sale and look at it one cloudless night.

I like the moon better than the sun because if you stare at the sun for even a minute your eyes'll burn out of your skull but you can stare at the moon for hours comfortably.

Good afternoon, John,

I am struggling bringing myself to work. I have what many people may find to be a dream job: I work from home, make my own hours and my boss encourages me to "round up" my hours to the nearest 10. That said, I don't particularly like the field I got my degree in. My parents pressured me to go to college when I did not want to go, so I picked a field I had studied back in middle school as a hobby.

Nowadays, I am not at all like what I was like in middle school, and I find this particular field to be quite drab. I don't hate it, but I often struggle to bring myself to work.

Some people tell me to quit, but it's not like I'd enjoy any other kind of work, either.

John,

I am very sorry to hear that you do not particularly enjoy the field that you are in. I think you should take up some hobbies in your spare time until you find something youd like to study and work on that.

life is much too short to spend it doing something you would not like to do when you dont have to. Do you get what Im explaining here. What is the point in it if it does not bring you somekind of introspective revelation or spiritual enjoyment. Find your passion and pursue it man. The rest will follow in due time.

I truly do wish you the absolute best and hope you find happiness and wellness.

Regards,
John

hi /eh/,
Last night i was watching some law around the world,and the law of smokes has attracted me to deeply. I find it a little bit incomplete.
All smoke laws speak about sell/buy cigarette for minor, but no one mentions about if an adult give a cigarette to a minor. Is it a crime or not?
Tell me about your country

Ok, but the problem is, if an adult give a cigarette to a minor it's not like buy or sell and if a minor can own a cigarette, who is in trouble? An adult only give a cigarette to a minor, the law only say buy/sell, and a minor smoke the cigarette and he can own it, so he can smokes, but he can't buy. So, who is in real trouble?

John Smith 17/10/09(Mon)00:15 No. 46223

The closest analogy I've seen is liquor laws. There are localities where someone under the arbitrary age (and the international variation in legal drinking ages leads me to believe that every possible number is largely arbitrary) is allowed to drink in the presence of a legal adult who buys a drink for them.

The difference is that right now tobacco is perceived to be far worse than alcohol as far as intoxicants go. It's not unheard of to see a beer commercial and a PSA for a service to quit smoking all in the same commercial break.

John Smith 17/10/25(Wed)07:36 No. 46257

Hello john.
Here in Finland, it is legal for a minor to posses and smoke cigarettes, but it is illegal to sell them any. The only person who can get in trouble is the adult buying cigarettes for a minor or the worker on the cash register, if he/she sells any cigarettes to a minor, even by accident.
The rule goes, that anybody, who looks under 30, must be asked to show his ID when buying cigarettes. It gets weird with alcohol. With alcohol, you need to be 18 to buy any, but if its stronger alcohol, like 40%, you need to be 20.
So if you first come and buy alcohol, while looking 18, you don't need to show any ID, but if you come back and buy some cigarettes, its a must.
In a bar, things work differently.
In a bar, anybody can buy cigarettes and even when your'e only 18, you can still buy strong alcohol(40%+)
BUT by law a cannot be sold alcohol, if it's for intoxication(If you want to get drunk).

What is also interesting is the "quit smoking" products. If a minor goes to a doctor and tells that hes addicted to tobacco, he can have a prescription for nicotine band-aids. There are also these nicotine free snus/snuff bags, that are only for adult, because they resemble the tobacco products. So its easier for a minor to get nicotine by a doctor that to quit smoking with nicotine free products.

I hope i didn't make too boring of a text, i'm still drinking my morning coffee and my brain isn't working on a full speed so i may have spoken something offtopic.
Yours truly
John

i really miss video stores.
we had blockbuster and hollywood video here. but they're gone now.
netflix and putlocker and amazon have more selection and you can get movies right away, but it's not even close to the same experience as driving out to the store and browsing around for a while for something cool or finding something random (or discovering someone already rented the movie you wanted and having to find something new), bringing the tape/dvd back to the car, picking up food and going home to watch the mysterious dvd with no cover and a weird summary. it doesn't sound that great at all typing it out, but it really was a great experience. man, i really miss going to video stores.
when i briefly lived in texas, there was a really great video store in austin that was really big and i think it even had two floors. it was really great.

.... you know what, i'm gunna look online to see if there are any video stores around here. hm... i suppose if i really wanna be old school i could try to find a phone book. but i don't know if we have one around. telephone booths/public phones aren't a thing in illinois anymore so i can't find one outside. hm.
anyways, that's what i'm going to do today.

i was never really into pinball, but my dad was. there's a little diner type place that had (maybe still has? i haven't been there in years) a pinball machine and he would always play while we were waiting for our food.
we used to go there all the time when i was kid.
i miss that. as i got older and he got worse at parenting, we got along less and less and drifted really far apart. after some really bad incidents that i still haven't forgiven him for, we just sort of lost everything we had as father and son.
i haven't seen my dad in a few years now that i think about it.

The laundromat near my place had soul blade in it, good fighter. It was next to a liquor store so people would drink and smoke in the laundromat. Open 24hrs, would go in late sometimes.

Today I drove to the ends of all the roads of Juneau.

There were signs saying it was the end of the road and some hiking trail heads, that is all I did.

it wasn't really that interesting. Its just trees and a dead end sign. Picture a cul-de-sac but with trees rather than houses. One of the ends even had houses at it.

I could see how that sounds interesting if you haven't lived here.


>>
John Smith 17/09/18(Mon)09:22 No. 46210

Anyways, it was about two hours of driving to each spot, a trial head at one, houses at another, and a park at the third, and then more trees at the other. They recently expanded the road too, adding another mile.

I could talk about the view and what not, but that might get too interesting, i don't know. For me, I'm used to it all so its not that exciting.

Dear John,
How do you feel about walks? I personally love them, night or day, especially when the park I walk in is empty.
Regards, John

If you are really worried John, you should carry a knife. If you don't like that approach, don't carry or wear anything valuable while you walk. I like to leave my phone at home when I walk in the park at night.
