    My father-in-law apparently never throws anything out. While this makes it a pain in the ass to help him pack to move, it does lead to some hilarity, like reading computer magazines from 1983. It’s awesome.

    Until my wife realizes I’m reading 26 year old magazines instead of packing.

    I make my sandwich read wav files out loud to me, while the magazine makes me a woman, non-crusty.
