Question: Do You Always Grab a Cart From Outside?

I typically always try even if it's slow and there's not many outside. It just makes one person's job easier. Some could argue it eliminates a person's job but some places have these things pile up like zombies in a horror movie. The only place I've ever seen eliminate this mess is Aldi and their quarter-locks. We can do this for twenty five cents, but not to help a person doing hard-labor? Humanity should be better than this. 

Do you try to grab a cart before you go in a place? 

Fact of the Day: Oscar Claude Monet

Claude Monet's parents called the future-artist Oscar in his childhood, and Monet used "O. Monet" on many of his works when he was young. He was baptized in the Catholic Church as Oscar-Claude Monet. Despite being born into Catholicism, Monet later became an atheist.

Random Photo: The Goats

While they (especially the black goat on the right) are hard to see in the picture, these two goats "greeted" me and my dog on our walk around the neighborhood. I saw them like two days in a row but I haven't seen them in a few days. I wonder if they like people or dogs for that matter. 

The Ridiculous 6 (2015 Film) Review

 While Netflix is well-known for their original shows, they haven't really done much with original movies. Which I can understand to be honest, but they've cranked out more of them than I expected. I had heard of The Ridiculous 6 last year and I heard it was pretty bad. Adam Sandler movies usually get pretty ridiculed by critics so I was a little optimistic. But to be honest it did look fairly dumb (especially Taylor Lautner's character Lil' Pete), but curiosity got to my cat and I eventually sat down and saw it. Adam Sandler had past his prime shortly after he left Saturday Night Live, but he's made a decent movie or two since the 1990's. Is this one a decent comedy or is it one of his worst films he's ever done?

Fact of the Day: Vienna

The English name for the Austrian city Vienna most likely comes from either the Italian or French name for Vienna. The German (which Austrians speak) word for Vienna is Wien.
