Today I Learned (and apparently I'm the last person on earth to learn this) that "Karen" is a generic name for a middle aged suburban woman who always asks to speak to the manager.
I knew of the name but I didn't know it's origin. I think it is a generic name to any woman who complains or screams at people.
My niece said it was from this skit (2:20 min)
I say it is from this Caren with a "C" WARNING: You will want to strangle this Caren, you will be praying that the police shoot her (8 min)
TIL.... the code to unlock the security door at the local pharmacy. Those keypad locks are shit.
The employees that are not aware of their surrondings and do not make an effort to obscure their key presses are a bigger problem.

I'm disappointed. I thought it would be a video of Caryn Johnson, who used to be entertaining but switched completely over to hate and bigotry some number of years ago.
but global pandemic is much more fun
TIL... that COVID-19 is affecting Google Maps. Google Maps uses historical data to map the best routes for direction. With COVID-19 driving patterns have changed, no one is commuting, so the historical routes are inaccurate for mapping the best routes. I had always thought Google Maps used current real time data, but in fact it uses historical data as well.
TIL that the word "privy" is not just used at Renaissance faires ... it is a legal term and is used to refer to a type of potty that is not permitted to be constructed anymore.

Yeah, Maps emphasizes historical data when you're doing a "arrive by X" search, but puts somewhat more emphasis on realtime data for a normal search.
That i should have bought a 10 pound CO2 tank locally, instead of a 5 pound from amazon. Same damned price ( after shipping anyway ). What is really odd, $12.50 to fill the 5 pound. $18 for the 10 pound.
Got tired of driving to town once a year (or so to get it filled. This trip up: "hey while i'm here you have any 10 pound bottles".. ( non covid year. last year doesn't count since im home all the time so it lasted 8 months )
now i have enough for close to 3 years..
( another shop across town charges 75 bucks a fill .. wtf )
