Cardinal sins

So, as Louisville's basketball program implodes into a festering ball of federal indictments, I ran across this gem . The Lousiville coach received 98% of the money that Adidas gave the university. Wait, what? Digging deeper, one finds this gem buried over at the Courier-Journal story . Under the ex...

Watching Versailles on Netflix. Period costume drama with excellent production values and ridiculous French drama.
I wondering if that was any good. What's the time period French Revolution or earlier?
Way earlier. Louis the XIV is in his 20s and has just started construction on Versailles.

I'm pretty sure you can buy almost all decomissioned, de-militarized planes at government surplus auctions, except for an F-14.
I thought if it's still in active service as a front line aircraft, you couldn't buy it because they'll keep it at the boneyard and raid it for parts.

Re: Quotable quotes

Since the Harrier is a Marine jet, would the flag have to have a gold fringe? I'm not sure, but related: I think if you own one, you're obligated to claim you're a sovereign citizen when the cops come after you land it in a parking lot. I think if you have a Harrier, you're probably sovereign in mo...

Although I think it would have been cheaper to just buy the seasons rather than the books. Amazon getting paid either...

Re: Equifax gave no credit to SEC football.

What someone else said in a column I saw is probably going to end up being the truth: Those assholes at Equifax are going to end up making money from this.

Re: How's the weather? v. 1.1

I hope so for your sakes. Also, IIRC, isn't east of the eye the least-bad part of a hurricane, where wind speed and similar things are concerned? If the eye passes well to the west of you, that's about as good as you can hope for, outside of being missed altogether. Less wind, more rain. So it even...

You know, you can mute or block accounts. Not when they are re-tweeted by the people you follow. The more important thing is that people should feel bad for following and retweeting such a cretin. They are muted when retweeted. You will just see "the quoted tweet is unavailable," at least on Androi...

Re: covfefe makers

It's still possible to cut open a keurig cup and pour hot water over the coffee inside. I don't know if there is some filter inside, but you could use it or don't, however you wanted. There's no good way to hold the pod in the machine and pour water through it because of how Keurigs load. Several c...

covfefe makers

So, as I figured out due to having no power due to the hurricane this morning, I have no way to make coffee that does not depend on electricity. So I'm shopping manual coffee makers. So far top contenders seem to be the Bodum and the Aeropress . I'm open to suggestions from any of the rest of the ca...
