Shower thought for the day: I wonder how the pandemic/mask wearing has affected lipstick sales?

Also I just realized I started this thread back in 2013 :shock:

Cosmetics in general with all the folks that are working from home. I'd be surprised if every single industry outside necessities (food production, utilities, etc) hasn't seen a pretty steep decline in sales and production both. Production everywhere is behind due to lost capacity via covid restrictions. Now we're flooding the market with stimulus money. All the poor people will immediately spend it on stuff they need. All the 'rich' folks that were unaffected will immediately spend it on stuff they don't need. Container ships are already stacked 30+ deep waiting to get into LA Harbor. It's gonna be weird for a while longer.

Alright. So I bought a Manga comic book. I know you assume my life is a constant stream of being starter quarter-back, organizing keggers at Ducky’s, and railing hot chicks and - in general - it is. But I do have a small and shameful nerd side to feed.
This Manga comic book is backwards.Like I need to read it from the back page to the front. Explain please, geeks.

Japanese reads right to left (and traditionally top to bottom in columns rather than right to left along rows). So you start at the farthest right and work you way left.

At least, that’s my understanding.

I did not know that about Japanese. Every day is a school day.

Not true. But should be.
Hahaha that is freakin perfect. I’d walk up to like 500 miles to make that happen. No more, though.
