Punctuation Nazi smirks at Trump

"...my wonderful son, Donald,..." means my *only* wonderful son--my wonderful son, whose name is Donald. "My wonderful son Donald..." leaves room for Eric--my wonderful son Donald and my wonderful son Eric. Learn to punctuate, asshole--or maybe that's exactly what he meant.

"Sorry to Bother You" (spoilers)

I was really looking forward to this movie because it's about a young man working at a phone-sales office, trying to sell (of all things) encyclopedias. I thought this was a great idea for a movie, with wonderful possibilities for a plot. We saw it this afternoon, and it was just dreadful. And it's heart-breaking because all the actors (mostly unknown to me) were terrific; there wasn't a false note among them, and the dialog was well-written and cogent. But the plot just wasn't there. There were moments of hilarity, when I thought, "well, here we go," but things never took off like they should have. The climax--a race of half-human, half-horses bred by the evil mega-millionaire--on top of his this-close-to-slavery business--was too stupid for this smart movie. What a disappointment.

Anybody else using a Navage for chronic sinus infection?

I bought one on the "you might want to try it; other than (more) surgery I don't have much to offer you" recommendation of my ENT. It's like a neti pot with suction, and I think it might be helping. I am having trouble using it the way you're supposed to, though, and I wondered if anyone had any tips for me. I've watched youtube videos, which haven't helped much. My problem is that I can't get the right "seal" to make it a closed system. I always have a lot of salt water running down my throat instead of into the collection module, and it causes an unpleasant sensation of choking. I've found it works *sometimes* if I hold my breath, but that's clearly not something I can do for the entire process. Any suggestions?
