Re: Browns give up, pay 16 million for Super Bowl Ring: NFL '17

There was a point made about the Vikings playing at "home", because the NFC is the visiting team this year. They'd get the normal 25% of the ticket allocation, although it would be easier for people to buy tickets secondhand since they don't have to travel. But would they make the Vikings use the vi...

Re: How's the weather? v. 1.1

inch of snow and md shuts down. (school was cancelled today in qac) they got a dusting in nola and they shut down. "Shut down" in MD is maybe overstating it. I'm at work and I'm about as snow risk averse as someone with a ton of leave saved up and sore and sleep deprived can be. Schools are just on...

If you were putting anime on a spectrum, Devilman Crybaby is like out there so far you need binoculars to see it from Berserk. I'm not watching that show, even if other people say it's good.

Re: Home $weet Home

Wait. You installed wall-to-wall carpeting yourself? On the stairs no less? Dayum. I mean, I'm a proponent of DIY, but no. No, I did not install it myself. Sorry if I gave that impression. I just moved a bunch of furniture and other stuff up and down the steps. There's no way that anyone would get ...

Re: Food

Does the Instant Pot have temperature control? I looked at their website and it looks like there's only 3 settings for temp. It seems like it's essentially a computer-controlled, slightly more functional crock pot. I've been hemming & hawing about getting an Anova, but if the Instant Pot has adjust...

Re: Home $weet Home

Carpeting was all installed yesterday (yay!). 4-man crew, arrived at 8:30 and left at 4:50, so a full day of work. Most surprising thing: How long steps take to carpet. Cutting, stretching on two faces, putting in a billion staples, getting out of the way for people going up and down the stairs, and...

I'm not nearly as generous, because how do people come to those supposedly rational, non-racist beliefs? Do we take them at their word that racism had nothing at all to do with it, that what they're saying isn't a post-hoc rationalization so that they can tell themselves that they're not racist, whe...

I'll reiterate that the rule requiring an extra point to be kicked when it doesn't affect the outcome and time has run out is a bad one. And y'all can fuck off with your ridiculous arguments to the contrary. That said, it did contribute some lulz, so maybe it was good for that. Yeah, go Jags. Anybo...

Cole slaw has nothing to do with enjoying fried chicken. I can enjoy fried chicken just fine without torturing myself with anything cold and slimy.

Which goes through pretty much exactly what I said. It's not that the food is fundamentally bad. It's that it's a horrible experience because of all of the other factors.

Re: This Life is Absurd

I saw a work van yesterday with this name on the side: "Mason's Plumbing." It makes me think of some family drama between dad and his 16 year old son: "As long as you are my son, you are going to be a bricklayer!" "No way! All I want to be is a plumber! If I can't be that and be your son at the sam...

Re: Simple Pleasures

Fried chicken. All types all price points all shapes. SRSLY? KFC is gross. A lot of the problem with this mostly true statement is that KFC is only not awesome because of what feels to be sloppy practice on the part of the stores. There's seemingly so much potential in the recipes that you want the...

Nomorobo has made my phone usable again. I just wish they were allowed to block numbers spoofed to look like they're on the same exchange as you.

Re: Towing the Lion

I have some kind of mental block with slaw. I just can't get myself to eat it like a normal food so I just keep chewing it and it gets unpleasant.

But I'm not into cold slimy salads at all, anyway.

Re: Rules, RVs, and a four-story phallus: the HOA thread

The story doesn't give actual reasons for why the HOA thinks this is an appropriate remedy, nor verification that "people living in a garage" is the reasoning for the rule. If you think people are living in the garage, then 1) why the fuck do you care. If people are exceeding the residency of the ho...

Re: 2015: SEC football is the only real football.

It annoys the hell out of me when teams go away from what was working and play conservatively to sit on a two score lead. There's NFW that lead is safe, even against a mediocre team, let alone in a championship situation. And then there's the Atlanta Falcons to bring in the other side of the argume...

Yeah, my wife tried a couple from ThirdLove, and sent both back immediately. I didn't enquire as to what the issues were, but they did not fit, and it was too much of a hassle trying to get returns / different sizes.

Re: How's the weather? v. 1.1

Time for an afternoon of playing chicken with the weather. It's raining, but will it freeze? It's below freezing, but is it getting warmer? There's a lot of salt on the road but will it get washed off?
