    I'm making this thread in the 'berry cause I know you guys take things (semi) seriously.
    But really, I haven't looked at a newspaper in over five years but today I was getting my car
    aligned and in the waiting room was an old school newspaper. I felt like I was in the 1800s ffs.
    truthbetold, it was kind of interesting.

    and tbh, I never look at news either on the TV or the nets so this was kind of weird.
    anyone else read a newspaper?

    I get two city ones once a week. I pick them up from the end of my driveway and throw them in the trash... think I looked at once once and felt like an old person.

    I read news online. I’ll pick one up in a waiting room once in a while for old times’ sake.

    I found out today in my ten minutes of perusing this paper messenger that Orchard Supply Hardware, a chain in Cali since 1931, is closing all it's store at years end.
    ok, sad.
    but I'll just go to Home Depot, duh

    Rarely, only if I don't have my phone with me and I'm waiting somewhere like an appointment at the doctors. But they have TV's in pretty much most places now. So you got something to grab your attention.

    I picked up a magazine at the doctor’s office the other day and kinda read an article or two. It felt weird. I had flashbacks of when I was a kid.

    how'd you get away with posting only two letters?
    pretty sure three is the minimum.
    like, "no."
    you must be so cool irl
