The pillows don't fit
They could have easily made the pillows fit by moving the cinderblock ends closer together.

But then they'd have to cut the 2 x 4's. Probably don't own a saw and don't want to pay a handyman to cut them.

They could probably buy another cushion and adjust the bench a bit and make it fit.

VA secretary claims Disney doesn't measure wait times so the VA shouldn't either
May 23, 2016
 
It can take months for veterans to actually receive health care from the VA, but Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert McDonald wants people to focus on the destination, not the journey. "When you go to Disney, do they measure the number of hours you wait in line? Or what's important?" McDonald asked Monday, apparently entirely serious. "What's important is, what's your satisfaction with the experience? And what I would like to move to, eventually, is that kind of measure."

The VA has been heavily criticized for failing to provide timely care to patients (or even accurate information about said care). McDonald has also brushed aside "create date" measures, which gauge a vet's wait time by counting the days since he or she first requested care, saying "create dates" aren't a "valid measure" of a patient's experience.

McDonald might be missing one glaring difference between waiting for health care and waiting to get on the Matterhorn Bobsleds, though: People don't typically die queuing for amusement park rides. Jeva Lange

Jennifer Post, 26, has been living with her parents in Villas, New Jersey, since dropping out of law school two years ago.

A law career wasn’t a good fit for her, Post decided,

In my day, we took whatever job we could get because we needed to make a living.  Nowadays, young people are only willing to do things that make them feel good and are quite happy to have their parents support them forever during their life-long journey of self-discovery.

Living with your parents until you get married is common in Asia, so this is like saying water is wet in Irvine.

The prevalence of love hotels (places you can rent for 3 hours) helps with the whole taking a girl back to your parents place to bone.

Perhaps we've stumbled upon a new business model.  New for here, old for Asia.

Honda made a car for adults living with their parents but it was only sold in Japan:

Thanks for sharing. For District 4 - would timing be contingent on final decision of the cemetery location? I imagine 5P would want to set prices accordingly. And then corollary question, when would the "final final" decision be made re: cemetery?
