Confession is good for the deal seeking soul. What would you like to confess.


Not running because it is a favorite or liked activity, seeing results and mainly motivated by vanity.

I didn’t change my air filter for like a year. I’ve been feeling worse and worse inside the house. I changed it last week, It was soaked with water and moldy. I now feel 10,000 times better. My AC is on so much more cool. Yes, that’s right, I attempted suicide via moldy AC and was unsuccessful.

There's a spot on the rug where the cat threw up like a year ago and I haven't cleaned it up because it's not obvious and I'd have to stretch to get to it.

Middle-age (plus) male here. Sometimes need to make frequent visits to relieve the bladder, especially after drinking a large cup of coffee. I will occasionally not flush, knowing that I'll be back in a few minutes anyway. I'll confess to you all, but please don't tell my wife.

Don't worry about it. We practice water conservation in our house. If it's yellow let it mellow. If it's brown flush it down...

O god where to start…
Let me apologize to all those graphic and drawing apps I downloaded over the years and looked at once thinking this is cool, then two years later noticing them again and thinking what the hell is this? Delete.

I followed up with an inquiry from 4+ months ago with information the person needed, after not even understanding his question for 4+ months. So that’s good.

I let him know that for his first question it would cost him over $500, and for his second question he might not even be allowed to proceed. #despair #disappointment

Perhaps I should have just ignored him instead, like many would done?

Wow, similar philosophy AND similar fear of spousal repercussion in the same post.

I'll plagiarize, and call it a day.

Same here. We use Clorox toilet tank tablets to keep things neat and tidy.

Those are bad for the rubber seals on your toilet tank -- given enough time, they will rot them. I've been using this instead: [www.fluidmaster.com]

I sneak a couple of Girl Scouts Thin Mints every now and then and don’t log them in my Weight Watchers point tracking app.

Well, if you WERE successful, you would have to pull a Cain to post...

'a couple' cookies - ok.

'a couple' cookie boxes! - then we know why you needed to do the confession!

.....be wary.....Bleach toilet tablets can slowly cause damage to the rubber seals inside your toilet, causing unexpected water leaks and completely avoidable repair bills.....

They keep raising the bill on my storage space in West Oakland. I've had it for a number of years. It's not much in there that I want to keep but every month, I pay the bill. Hep me.

My vintage Mac hobby is out of control.

To my near left, I have a disassembled partially recapped IIfx. To my right is a disassembled Wallstreet, and two disassembled floppy drives. To my far left is a disassembled TiBook. Behind me a second disassembled IIfx, a second partially disassembled Wallstreet, two disassembled TiBooks, and 10 disassembled SE/30's.

Today I replaced 6 capacitors, combined two broken TiBooks (not either of the ones mentioned above) to form one complete, working TiBook, tested three additional TiBooks for function, then went into some sort of haze; I'm not sure what else I did at that point.

In discussion with Mrs Pupp, I think all this madness is all due to guilt associated with recycling/tossing an SE/30, PM8600, PM8100, Q840AV, Centris 610, Quadra 610, and LC475 when we got married in 2011. We needed the space, and it never occurred to me at the time that there could be a demand for these noble antiques, that someone could have taken them and loved them and cherished them and...OK, now I'm starting to mist up.

Ok I confess I did that too, but I’ve got much more self control lately.

Keep it if you can afford it. I decided to get rid of mine and dumped my Centris 660AV, Power MAC 7300, several monitors for them and my Atari Mega 4 along with a bunch of audio stuff From my old recording studio. My wife was ecstatic but I kick myself quite often for Getting rid of them.

Sounds like you should step up to an old wooden moored boat.........
