Re: Music for the Masses

They put out an album last year. I like the one song they released ahead of time. But then I have always liked The Darkness. I don't know if they'd go into being a "novelty act", as much as they're going for a particular sound.

Or they could just, I don't know, lower taxes.
No they have to lower taxes for the upper-middle-class in a way that drives up prices for the unemployed.
Don't forget "lets them be moralistic about how you *should* be spending your money."

Re: Kulturkampf? In my NFL? It's more likely than you think. Football 2018

There is no greater evidence of anti-Kaepernick collusion than going with Mark Sanchez over Kaep when signing an emergency QB. You sure "playing Nathan Peterman" hasn't already blown that out of the water? Or was that just cover for "Having Nathan Peterman on the roster in the first place", which a...

Re: Light laffs

That's one of those where you jump off into a whole bunch of really highly respected musicians who did something so 80s and Swedish and not really that far out of character. Those guys made 2 whole albums together (and they're not even 1/10th of the released work of ANY of those guys). The 80s are w...

Re: Questions for the Grylliade Non-Hive Mind

I think plastic bags and other sealed containers are bad because they encourage more rotting than ripening.

Something to try might be a muslin bag. That might be closed enough to allow the ethylene to collect without being unbreathable. Or maybe cotton drawstring produce bags

Re: DOOM! (Insert extra Os as you see fit)

The suicide thing is a very interesting thing to me. It's 40-50 something white dudes to a shocking degree. Any idea what's driving it? It tends to co-occur with the opioid crisis, and is driven by similar factors. So these "suicides" are unintentional overdoses? Not always or necessarily. My under...

It could also have been an auto-color setting, where when everyone's surrounded by green on a football field, the TV is changing it to make it more red. You're better off turning off all auto / dynamic / smart adjustments o...

Re: Legalizing Marijuana and Gay Marriage Seemed Impossible

There was some libertarian push for SSM, and a not-insignificant amount of it was actively rebuffed by gay rights activists , due to their own purity tests in that the libertarian groups were not "liberal" enough in their other views to make common cause with for that one policy, or were loathe to l...

Re: Thanksgiving: the most delicious time of the year

I like turkey fine. Sliced roast turkey is different from other things. It's not 'better' or 'worse' than other foods to me, it's just its own thing. Better or worse only comes into play with comparing it to itself. I can understand not liking it too much, but that's a different thing than "it's obj...

Re: Thanksgiving: the most delicious time of the year

My wife always worked on Thanksgiving (when she was working), partly as an excuse to not have to deal with my parents, partly to not have to deal with the rest of the whiny bitch coworkers who felt like they "deserved" the day off because of their families. She thought it was one of the best days to...

Re: Food

I do the index and middle fingers with thumb pad on top stick, and bottom stick between ring finger and middle of thumb.

I thought most people just used index and thumb on top stick, and middle and thumb on bottom stick. My problem with that is not enough pinching force to keep food from falling.

I don't hold chopsticks "right", because it's way easier to use 3 fingers instead of 2. If I'm ever in Japan, they can laugh at me if they want.

Since I've gotta burn vacation anyway, I came home a couple hours early. It was crap driving. And not supposed to stop snowing / switch to rain until like 4 PM.

Re: How's the weather? v. 1.1

So despite saying it would be all rain or dhex's "wintry mix" (which usually includes rain), all we've gotten today is snow and sleet, and the temp is 4 degrees lower than expected. This might turn out to be a problem.
