All hail dis-cord-ia! I see what you did there.

Wale, I for one find cords comfortable.

Come now, why can’t we be more cordial about this?

The fix is sometimes to just buy better cordless things. I stopped hating wireless the day I stopped buying Best Buy own-brand $20 wifi dongles. And now the quality floor is even lower, thanks to Amazon and Ali Express and so on – it’s even easier to buy maddeningly awful cordless gear!

I can go though a cord in a weekend, if the fire is big enough. Love em!

Always seemed environmentally suspect to me, but I suppose it’s trivial in the scheme of things.


#14

D’accord!


#15

I always preferred the Camry, myself.


#16

Struck a chord, did it?


#17

Can I interest you in something vintage instead?

It did, record that for the future
