Crispy bacon. What a way to murder a perfectly good piece of meat, something that is supposed to be nice and chewy now has a chorosive hard to bite into chip like taste.

You're right I wish there was a way to change the title because this went from things that shouldn't of been invented to things that shouldn't exist.

Seaworld.

If you end up in San Diego, San Antonio, or Orlando. Skip it, you will likely thank me later.

I have no problem with wanting to see animals, and I actually like a good amount of animal sanctuaries and zoos, because there are certain species of animals that do better in captivity than in the wild, and animal sanctuaries do really good things such as keep endangered species safe.

But with Seaworld, it isn't good for animals, and besides there is far better stuff out there to see animals, such as whale watching where you get to see animals in their natural habitat. I've been to animal sanctuaries, national parks, and whale watching, and Seaworld sucks in comparison to all three of those. If it isn't bad enough there's a soak zone in Seaworld as if people wanted to get soaked by water filled with trash and waste.

For penguins, they did have them at one point, I would rather save up for a once in a lifetime vacation to see Antarctica, where you actually get to see a penguin colony and where there are guided tours, and Seaworld will also suck in comparison compared to that. So in conclusion animal sanctuaries, national parks, and ecotourism, are all far better options.

Corsets. I would have died if I was born before the 20th Century. I would have killed myself because Trans people were hated back in those days.

I mean't artificial by sounds that come from drum machines as opposed to real drum sets.

But drum machines are handy tools for the home recording artist. It's a lot handier than having to set up and mic up a real drum kit. I prefer being able to record music to not being able to record music.

Vintage analog drum machines have their own unique sounds that make them preferentially suitable for certain types of music. Entire genres owe their existence and sonic identity to the various Roland drum machines. The musical landscape over the past 30 years without 808 and 909 kick drums would be a different and much less interesting place.

I really liked the sound of the Linn LM-1 drum machine which was used by people like Chaka Khan and Hall & Oates.
The drum machine that Steve Winwood uses also really suits his style of music.
