Talk about meaningless statistics--a car line nameplate?

Should Ford decide to rename their F-series of trucks to the E-series (because they all are now electric), does that line end?

For the record, I regret falling for that. It sets couples up for disaster when they realize they either aren't compatible or are terrible at sex.

The problem with those early calculator watches was that the LED displays soaked up a ton of energy from the batteries. Usually there was a button that you held to turn it on so it would only draw current when absolutely necessary. These sorts of calculator watches wouldn't be practical until LCD displays became common.

Wow, I used to have one of those aluminum mouse pads. Those mice sucked, because they would ONLY work on those pads. There was a pattern on them that the sensor picked up, and once it wore off, you had to replace it.

It's compact in that it isn't filling the room anymore.
