How different do you think the world be without this invention?

They just started construction on the freeway I take to my internship, so I'm trying to look for an alternate route... but my main other option is also undergoing construction, and the only other route I know of is a regular highway with lots of stoplights. It looks like no matter which way I go I should plan to be sitting in traffic for up to two hours. It used to take me a little over an hour to get there and two hours to get home.
For me it's at least twice a week. Just as the dumb scissors cut is healing my left hand, this morning I managed to catch my knuckle in the box grater while I was making a salad for my lunchbox. Meh.

You're on a first date. Things are going very well. You have a lot in common, there's an obvious attraction, there's playful banter and inside jokes already. It may lead to first date intimacy. You haven't suggested it yet, but there's a strong spark. But then your date says something that may derail the 'feed good' vibe. Which of these, if uttered by your date, would halt any forward progress towards sex/making out? Anything you don't check are things you can overlook and continue on where this date seems to be heading
Are you as tired as I am of everyone saying "LOL OMG millennials, sucks to be you. You're so dumb and selfish and lazy and got a worthless degree" and such?
What is your favorite/funniest
TV edit of a line of dialogue?
For example: I'm sick of all these monkey-fighting snakes on this Monday to Friday plane!

Atari, pay phones, popcorn air poppers....
Also, what were some of your favorite things growing up that you wish we still had around?
It's potato salad - in a can. Actually, it is German Potato Salad. And it is in a can. And I am supposed to heat it up before serving (or, Good God!, eating it).
Is this really a thing, or is it really like those cans that say "fish assholes in tomato sauce" that actually contain Spaghetti-O's?
If your first reaction is 'nothing'...what do you dislike about it?
Do you judge people by thier e-mail address? which ones are the most lame?

When you look at someone who is talking to you and standing fairly close, do you focus on a particular eye? I know they say you can focus on the spot between the eyes but that feels weird and unnatural. But I don't know how it's possible to look into both eyes when you're standing close if that makes sense.
I welcome answers from everybody, socially inept peeps as well, but I'd especially appreciate input from those of you who don't spend a lot of time analyzing this shit.
Sorry bout the weirdo question, I am an isolated hermit trying to re-enter the general population and I've forgotten 80% of my social skills!
Enter daughter. Now I have to pair socks :( And what is worse, my MIL bought her two huge packages of white socks. THEY ARE DIFFERENT BRANDS. Oh god, I put off pairing socks for as long as I can. "You can wear these winter tights today, right honey? It's only 90 degrees outside"
But! My daughter and I just decided to tie dye stuff! I'm thinking of dying one set of those stupid white socks. I'm kind of torn though. Will I need to match up one tie dyed sock to it's pair? (we'll rubber band two socks together and dye them as one garment) Or can I mix and match since tie dye is wacky anyway? Will this make my life easier or will I want to burn all of her stupid little socks? We aren't fashionable people. We tend to enjoy wacky clothes. I think this could work.
What do you think?
I want to show my friend this site and I literally cannot remember anything that would help me in googling it D: Thanks dudes.
