It is. Just look at the URL. Rainy morning doesn't mean I don't need to go out and wheel the trash bin out to the road. Nor does it mean His Lordship and Her Assness realize that no, they do indeed NOT want to go out. Who else remembers the old days when we could only use 3 smilies per discussion? Now you can use 143 or more if you want to I guess. But the rain is cold. And I need to take the trash bin out to the curb...or the roadside, there is no curb here. Dammit. EDIT - There's that part of the world done for today

Dang, and that reminds me that I need to call to start having pick up of our trash. Thankfully the road is just a cars length from where the trash cans are kept. I hate being outside in the cold damp weather. We do need the rain though. But, I don't need to get soaked.

I only have to roll the can about 30 feet but I get a few puddles in that section when it rains

@myklj999 I imagine it would be an ice rink once the colder weather comes your way too.

I do not have a curb either I just roll the can out to the edge of my yard. I was not aware that the number on the link is what number the discussion is hence there have been 3,409,038 discussions as of the post.

In the ancient version the discussion URL was only numbers with no words, and you could use it to search out the first discussions on the site

@myklj999 interesting. I believe in the old mylot along the bottom of the screen it would say the number of the post out of the total number of posts. I'm not sure I'm saying that correctly but it would look like "20,000 of 46,789"

@shaggin The only thing vaguely looking like that would be the interest rankings by people's names. Here's an old discussion:

Can't say I remember that far back, but then I don't really use smilies. Most of the time, my screen reader doesn't recognize them. Hopefully your road isn't to far from the house, If you put on something warm and run (not to fast) I think you'll be okay. My husband will be taking ours out tonight for tomorrow's pick up.

@myklj999 That explains why my screen reader glosses over them, then. It doesn't know what to make of them, so it doesn't say anything. Not even "graphic".

@kaylachan They had that 'rule of 3' in the pre-May 2013 version, I assume they thought it was visually more aesthetic to have just a few in a discussion. It did make me think harder about which ones to use.

@myklj999 I think it was to get people to focus more on the post itself, rather than flood it with smilies. Glad they lifted the restriction, seeing now that people use them but not overly so.

Totally weird toon. I don't get it. Am I showing my age again? Too bad you don't have one of those tread dillies where you can put the can on the tread and it takes the thingy to the 'curb' for ya. Yeah yeah I know, that was on the Jetsons, not real life.

No, I haven't been here long enough to remember the smilie limit. Do you need us to build you a curb? :-)

You mean Scar accepts the fact that it’s raining and doesn’t ask you to open the door every 12 seconds to check to see if it has stopped???

I am looking at the URL and you are correct this is discussion # 3,409,038. I often forget to have a look at this. Cats can be annoying, they want to go out and one minute later they want to come back inside. We have a sunny day today, it's warmer than the past few days.

@myklj999 When I watched the weather forecast they showed that large band of precipitation and it was just south of us, we have the cloud cover that was on the outer edges of that system.

Technically there are a lot fewer, that's how many have been started total including what has been deleted (for whatever reasons), but it's still more than I'll ever get around to responding to.

Oh! Only three smiles... That's not fair. Glad that it's no more there. Cats have a lot of mood swings and they will make you swing between their mood... Going in and out( I used only 3)

I put out my trash yesterday but they didn't take it away and now, starting next week, they're going to every other week trash pickup. The once in a blue moon I put out a large trash bag* in stead of a little grocery bag, and they don't pick it up! Recycling will still be every week. *I was gonna call it a green garbage bag, but they haven't been green in I don't know how long. They're actually black.
