Annapolis Mall trended on Facebook after a loud fight in the food court was mistaken for a gunshot and chaos ensued for a bit until they figured it all out.

What do you have against AA County? 

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/06/26/upshot/where-are-the-hardest-places-to-live-in-the-us.html

It is listed as 180th best place in the USA to live in this article.

I mean, I get it, Howard County is number 9.  But 180 isnt so bad.  At least it is not PG County (860) or DC (in the 1200s).

Or Baltimore City in the 2400s.

I am quite surprised that DC is ranked that high.  I was figuring well into the five figures.

Nope sorry but I am not into pop crap that is so over polished and tweaked with protools that if we ever had to listen to the 'performer' actually sing our ears would probably bleed from the terrible sound.  Let alone that all they do is sing other peoples songs.  Just not into it at all.

I didn't ask if you liked Taylor Swift's music or were into it. I find it borderline unbelievable that you presumably have a TV and occasionally go shopping and am completely unaware of one of the biggest celebrities in America. It's like not knowing who Barack Obama is or what football is.

BTW which one is Swift?
Let's see: you've already been "informed" Taylor Swift is a pop singer. One person is holding a microphone and singing in the photos, and the other is in lingerie. Which do you think is Taylor Swift, if you had to guess?

Ah that one, what she does (while being passed off as country) has nothing at all to do with country music.  She is not alone in this realm though.  99% of what is being marketed and sold as these days county is nothing more than glammed up pop coated with a very thin coat of pseudo country (a la FGL, et al).

Home Alone was set in the early 90s.  The first Saw movie was set in the early 2000s.  Kevin would only be in his early twenties during the Saw movies.  Jigsaw was in his 60s.

Saw does not take place in the future.

I hope someone didn't get paid to write that crap.

what are peoples opinion about this whole dc pot congress override the popular vote of a place with no real representation, thing?  personally I do not care about the pot aspect of it, for this could be about anything that was voted yes on with over seventy percent of an actual vote.  the idea that people can vote on something, then have the government of the country you are voting in, say sorry, your vote does not count, really irks me.  and the core person involved in doing it is not even someone from dc.  and the guy says the other day, "if the people of dc dont like it, they can leave."  and the guy is heavily backed by pharmaceutical companies.  really? 

i see people want to do protests . . . but do protests really do anything in this country?  did occupy wall street, do anything?  i dont even think these race protests will do any real thing, to change a true mass adjustment of thoughts and attitudes.

so what does happen if this goes through one hundred percent and the vote of a district is canceled?  do the wheels just keep turning?

I think you skip the protests and go talk to the DC leaders.  Tell them this is a good place to take a stand against Congressional interference and all that needs to be done is to instruct the cops and local prosecutors to curb enforcement of possession charges for small amounts.  It can be done.  Brooklyn district attorney Kenneth Thompson recently announced he wasn't going to prosecute small possession cases any longer.

1) It is not always the popular vote that counts in this country - presidential elections are a prime example.

2) Protests, while most often justified, are quite often fabricated by the people with man agenda - The case in Missouri is a perfect example.  A man chooses to rob a store, he then chooses to refuse to leave the middle of the street when requested to do so by an officer, he then chooses to assault the officer, he then chooses to leaves the scene in an attempt to resist arrest, he then chooses to return in an attempt to assault the officer a second time, he then chooses to not comply with the officers order to get on teh ground.  Basically he chose to die.  In another case that is being hyped as a 'choke hold', the criminal there said "I can't Breathe", which is physically impossible to do if you can't breathe.  Bottom line is that that was NOT a choke hold.  The only similarity in these two cases is that the media created news based on non-facts in order to push their cause du jour happens to be.

3) Should this be the way it is in either instance?  In both cases my short answer is no.  I would prefer a simple majority rule most of the time.   I would also prefer if the supposed news outlets in this country would stop creating news and start actually reporting it.

THAT is the fact.

anymore facts you care to discuss?

the fact is that you would have been banned LONG ago if it wasn't for this convenient "fact"

I actually think you've been far more pleasant on this board since, I'm guessing, your health improved and you went on your cruise... much more chipper....which is nice.... keep it that way! resist the urge to join the dark side! stop talking about politics, race, or "personal responsibility" (code for FUCK OFF AND DIE) and you'll be fine.... oh wait a minute, that wouldn't leave you much other than sharing outback coupons! dang..

if you didn't know much about his partner, you prob. weren't too close, no? Maybe it was a small wedding? Maybe he didn't have a wedding?
From the looks of it, it was at the court house...so only close family...

Hey Ratbastard do you have anything disparaging to say about Tamir Rice? 

Was he a criminal that deserved to be gunned down in the streets for his crimes?

Or was he a little kid playing with a toy gun (like a lot of little kids do) and was killed by a trigger happy cop who did not even give Tamir a second to react to him and his partner?

well I don't know what the requirements are to officiate weddings but no.. i did not expect to be invited to the civil service much less officiate.. just maybe a "hey man we're getting married"...but the truth... is we're not very close friends i guess...although always friendly.. i saw him at the outer body llama show a few months back..we talked about the world cup....but i did go to his 40th birthday party and not many did....

maybe my expectations are just unrealistic.. maybe they eloped....doesn't really matter...happy for them... she kind of looks a little bit like mila kunis so he's done well for himself...

i'm thinking of sending a congratulatory card in the mail after the holidays.. ;D

The worst movie of the year, according to Rotten Tomatoes and it's 2% score, is Nicolas Cage's version of Left Behind.  I actually want to see this.  I love Cage and his overreactions, and this movie is guaranteed to have plenty of them. 

Trailer

He also made the list with Rage (14%).  I saw that one earlier this year on Netflix.  RT has it listed as being in (limited) theaters on July 11 and on DVD by August 12.

In the US they already waive surge pricing during emergencies  (http://bits.blogs.nytimes.com//2014/07/08/uber-reaches-agreement-with-n-y-on-surge-pricing-during-emergencies/)

I've taken UBER about 50 times in the last three years and I would say WITHOUT A DOUBT that the service is 100% better than DC and VA cabs, maybe even 500% better
the fares are fair if not cheaper, the drivers are much nicer, the vehicles are way better
and now thanks to GPS, people don't really need to know how to get places....that was the value of a veteran cabbie

I don't think UBER black sedan (if a real thing) has rolled out in Richmond yet. UberX (that's the larger vehicles, right?) just got here in the last month.

The VIP tickets to Fall Line Fest (our version of Hopscotch) came with free Uber for the weekend and it was worth the ticket upgrade alone. Never waited more than 3-5 minutes for a ride, very convenient if you were drinking, etc.

someone told me that they send you emails or texts or something with info on the car and drivers photo, so you know that the vehicle really is your uber?  i heard that in new York, people have been just getting into peoples cars thinking they were ubers.  i wonder if people already stereotype what they think uber drivers look like?
Title: Re: random . . . randomness
Post by: DeathFromAbove1979 on December 16, 2014, 12:36:39 pm
Uber gives you the drivers name, a picture, and their rating. I believe Uber also gets the person who orders it. Based on their rating the driver can choose to pick them up or not. I believe my rating is alright... My friend just became and Uber driver. I should ask her what my rating is.

One complaint is that a LOT of Uber drivers have no idea where they are going. I've jumped in an Uber plenty of times and when I talk to them they don't live in DC or even frequent it so they go by their GPS regardless of traffic. Multiple times I've given them directions or alternate routes.

People jump into random cars all over thinking they are Ubers. It's just because literally any car can be an UberX. Nissan, Honda, Scion, Chevy, whatever. The only way you can tell if it's an Uber is that it will have the "U" on one of the windows. I've seen it happen multiple times.

Its actually a growing trend. Most foreign currencies place their signal post-amount, and you see a lot of Europeans do the 20$ thing by rote.

What specifically do you dislike about it? It's actually much more sensible layout-wise. We say $500 as "500 dollars." Doesn't it make sense to put the character that is shorthand for "dollars" after the number?

I think their date scheme is even worse.  DD-MM-YY is absurd.  When we speak of dates we say March 24th, not 24th March.  I agree though that $### is superior to ###$.   They also reverse the separators in their monetary values.  1.000,00 makes absolutely zero sense as opposed to 1,000.00.  It would get really wacky when we had dollars and cents.  2.045$,26¢.

the date format the makes the most sense is YYYY-MM-DD, with zeros in front of single digits (2014-02-09).  why?  dates are then sortable.  </nerd rant>

When we speak of dates we say March 24th, not 24th March. 

but we do say "24th of March". 

I agree though that $### is superior to ###$.   They also reverse the separators in their monetary values.  1.000,00 makes absolutely zero sense as opposed to 1,000.00. 

it makes zero sense to someone who does things differently.  in other words, your objection is purely subjective: "i'm not used to it, so it's inherently bad".   period/comma is not subjectively better or worse than comma/period.  they both accomplish the same function and neither is more efficient, elegant, etc than the other.

It would get really wacky when we had dollars and cents.  2.045$,26¢.

that reasoning is just asinine.  do we include both dollar and cent symbols today?  no, we write $2,045.26.  slamming something in there that isn't currently used to make a false point isn't helpful.

And speaking of Roman numerals and Serial, I work with serials a lot at work. Many have been using Roman numerals for volume numbers for decades, and many of them should stop that practice. Beyond XXXIX, a lot them muck it up.

WHat the fuck?  I never said I was better than anyone, due to age or any other factor.  I also do not think older music is crap.  I have always said my POV and experiences are different from someone who is old enough to remember Vietnam.  You guys listened to the Beatles when you were younger, I didn't.  I did not listen to music really until 1992, outside of whatever my parents would play.

I also did not say BETTER THAN anything in regards to the Beatles.  I said:

I don't like the Beatles, at all.  I like at least 1000, if not more, bands than them.

Considering I do not like the Beatles, I am going to assume, with the amount of artists I follow and have in my library, that I LIKE at least 1000 bands MORE THAN the Beatles.  It is not that hard to fathom. 

I also do not like AC/DC and tons of other older bands.  I DO like some older artists; the Zombies, CCR, Curtis Mayfield, Neil Diamond, America, Grateful Dead, and a few others.

No, not at all.  But you set yourself up for criticism if you say, think Foxygen is the bees knees but think the Rolling Stones are a bunch of morons.  Or if you say Dylan has no talent before you've tried to write a decent metaphor.  You can choose to not listen to the Beatles, but much of what you like was actually invented by them.

I never praised Foxygen.

I do not like the Rolling stones, the Beatles, or Dylan's music (with some exceptions, like Moonlight Mile).

Did I ever say they did not have talent (other than when I criticized Dylan's mumble mouth singing)? 

No.  I said, as I will always say, I DO NOT LIKE THEIR MUSIC.  Jeez how freaking hard is it to convince you guys that not everyone likes every band.   I did not criticize their talent OR their influence.  All I said is I don't like their music.

They will be shooting Raw and Superstars, probably.

They have a date for Smackdown on Tuesday (and if you look at it, they are also doing house shows Monday AND Tuesday...), and I am pretty sure they tape Main Event at the same time as that.

Edit: whatever you think my intention was in my reply to DFA, you are wrong.

I was posting something to show him that this Monday night, at the Raw taping, they will not be taping Smackdown, and the one he went to that was like that, because Smackdown would have been on NYE that year.  Not sure why that would make me the douche of the year.  Especially since I do like DFA and was not trying to be douchey to him.

That makes sense! They recorded 2 weeks of Raw and Smackdown. They were weird episodes when I rewatched them. A lot of "backstage" segments when they aired. Still fun. Either way, 2nd row!

I heard Payback is going to be in Baltimore in May. It's right around my birthday so maybe I'll splurge and get some nice tickets... depending on the card.

NWA - Number 6 http://www.bet.com/music/photos/2011/09/50-most-influential-rappers.html#!091211-music-nwa

Dr Dre - Number 3 http://www.bet.com/music/photos/2011/09/50-most-influential-rappers.html#!060911-music-body-dre-big

Nobody knows who Dre is?  He sold tons of music.  Has influenced tons of rappers/producers.  Is one of the richest hip hop moguls etc.

really?  I still do not get why you (to you Julian, I moved this) think Dr Dre is not recognizable.

Influence has nothing to do with celebrity or identifiability. Nor does talent. My parents don't know who Dr Dre is; they do know who Taylor Swift is. Grandparents know who Taylor Swift is. 2nd graders know who Taylor Swift is.

Taylor Swift is everywhere in 2014. She's in every grocery store check out lane. She is in commercials. She's one of Barbara Walters most interesting people. She has maximum media saturation. Dr Dre does not. That's not to say Taylor is better than Dr Dre or anything like that, but it's just undeniable that someone whose image is proverbially everywhere is more recognizable than someone who is not.

I did not ever say Taylor was not easily identifiable.  I am saying Dr Dre is also easily identifiable.

Anyways, I think iTunes/Apple deleted my mp3 copy of NYC Cops by the Strokes (from their debut CD that I bought while living in South Korea in 2001 that had this song and the original artwork).  I was listening to some of their music the other day, and I noticed that the track was no longer in my library... Strange.

But he isn't. He hasn't put out a record in a decade. There are not commercials with Dr. Dre on TV. Dr Dre is not on tabloid covers. To the best of my knowledge, his picture is not on the packaging for his head phones.

If you showed 100 Americans at random a picture of Dr Dre, how many do you think can correctly identify him? Because my guess would be in the single digits.

However the song's other lyricist-composer, Paul McCartney, had a very different inspiration. He is quoted as saying: "The verse about the politician blowing his mind out in a car we wrote together. It has been attributed to Tara Browne, the Guinness heir, which I don?t believe is the case, certainly as we were writing it, I was not attributing it to Tara in my head. In John?s head it might have been. In my head I was imagining a politician bombed out on drugs who?d stopped at some traffic lights and didn?t notice that the lights had changed. The ?blew his mind? was purely a drugs reference, nothing to do with a car crash."

Nobody said it was.  I said he was both recognizable and influential.  And since you could not identify him, you obviously do not like Hip Hop at all, or you would probably be able to identify him.  He has sold millions and millions of records.   He has sold millions and millions of headphones.  He has a career that is entering it's THIRD decade.  Just because you dont like hip hop does NOT mean that only a handful of 100 people on the street would be able to identify him.  That is just showing your own ignorance on the subject the subject being hip hop, Dr Dre, and who can identify him.

That is not the point. 

The point is, DRE is also recognizable. And to deny that is to show ignorance of the genre of hip hop.  Nothing against Julian, I am just saying if he knew anything about that style of music, then he would be able to identify the good Doctor.

Keep not answering.

Because if you state some significantly high number -- which would be requisite for you to actually give me any real grief over this -- you're going to be immediately mocked because it's insane. But on the other hand, if you state a reasonable number, like in the single digits, your entire argument dissolves.

No.  Why would you think I was being dismembered?  Because Julie doesnt know who Dr Dre is? Bitch please. 

And I never had a meltdown.  Ever.  Here or elsewhere.  If you read/pay attention to my posts, you would know all of that was to amuse me.  Changing names, etc.  Not a meltdown.

i feel, something here reading this conversation . . . but i do not know what.  i am hungry, as well, i do know that.  dinner last night, for Christmas was awesome.  ham and turkey and like ten side dishes.  we went all out, and excellent wine and bill murray in scrooged playing on the television and singing and Christmas magic throughout the night.  what a nice holiday to experience, when it all comes together just right.  

baby jesus is watching you three, so kiss underneath the new year.

I am not saying for certain Julian is not a real person.  But, I was told he is not.  But who knows?  Sometimes I would think atomic was real, other times just someone's Alt.  And since I have only been here since 2007 or 2008 or whenever it was, I am not in on all of the inside stuff around this place; the jokes, allusions to the past, etc.   

I only think people are real if I have actually met them in person or if I interact with them on any other social media.

I've been going out for the past few years and it's gotten tiresome. Even if we hit a fun little dive bar. My friend is having a house party. So, we're gonna grab some dinner and some drinks then head back to his place. Then binge drink forever. Hopefully wake up in time for the Winter Classic.

Well, unlike any coach we've had since Moeller, he actually has a track record of producing a quality coaching tree.

I couldn't see him gone in 4 years unless he wins a National title, in which case, I don't care and we'll name a fucking building after him. I think he'll be there the entire 6-7 year contract and have a successor ready to go if he does want to jump back to the NFL (which I'm __really__ not sure he's going to do). He's not going to do his alma mater that way.

Are tickets even possible to get at this point? What would we be looking at pricewise?

It wasn't intended as admonishing, it was a friendly point in the direction of the proper thread so we don't fill up the random thread unnecessarily with sports talk since there's a better thread for it (as a courtesy to the faction on the board who hates the mere thought that people on a music forum might want to discuss sports from time to time).

Also, as to my comments yesterday, we DO have a hockey thread, but NOT a college football one.

I must have missed the hockey thread, I remember the Caps one floating around but I didn't want to bump it.

Also, standing room tickets were at 197 yesterday on StubHub and today they jumped to 350. I was tempted at 200 for Standing Room...

I think you do not understand the word random.  Random draws from everything possible, however improbable.  

Like this list:  Mustard, Beets, 23481hjnnaov9, -901maschizno.

Even that's not quite random, but you get the idea.  If this were called "Miscellany - not otherwise categorized", then you would be correct in drawing our attention to a more relevant thread.

It's oddly named to play off the soccer thread's name; it's On The Eve of the New Season: North of the Border Edition.

That's too rich for my blood. Had I not already been to a Winter Classic and was a Caps or Hawks fan, then absolutely yes, you'll love it, but I'm not paying $350 for standing room only tickets to see two teams I'm indifferent about play outside in cold weather.

Fair enough. I have always looked at the "random" thread as a "everything not covered elsewhere" thread, although you are correct, that's not the actual meaning of random.

I still maintain a post on a subject that we have a long running thread covering will have the best chance of being seen by an audience who cares about it if posted in that thread instead of here, but everyone should make their own decisions on such.

Got a text message around 2am saying the show/party/rave at Echostage got shut down after a kid jumped off the balcony into the crowd. Originally I laughed. I've been to Echostage and would say the balcony is about 15 feet up for so? Figured the kid was trying to crowd surf or something. Jumped onto Facebook and saw some random pictures of a kid on the concrete with blood pouring out of his head. My friend said news vans were there and everyone was escorted out and the kid was in critical condition. From some people I know there, he did a front flip? Didn't go very well and hit the ground. Was trying to find an article online, but can't seem to find anything.

Anyone heard anything else on this?

No, but that's insane.

About a year ago at The Pixies at The National, a kid jumped from the balcony to the main level about 10 feet from me and I was openly stunned at how relatively uninjured he and the people he fell on were.

Given his fondness for comic books, wrestling, goth music and fantasy TV/movies, combined with his propensity for posting like 38 rabid responses in the space of 45 seconds and deleting half of them in the next 45 seconds, I totally see kilsaly matching the FBI profile for murdering someone based on an internet slight.

She said our office was still open. Our office NEVER closes until it's too late. SO I get to the office 45 minutes late and am the first one here. YAY

The roads are god awful and the drivers are even worse. I drive a Nissan Versa and the thing drives for shit in the snow. I learned it years ago and I choose to not drive when it snows. I can't believe how awful the main roads are. How does the Fairfax County shit the bed like this so often?

I don't think I've ever seen traffic this bad. At least it moves when it snows. Today is was a total stand still going BOTH directions. Usually if you're going against traffic it's not so bad. On top of that I only saw a handful of cars on the side of the road. In my hour+ commute I only saw 1 plow truck out. I'd imagine they were hitting the highways hard.

That city is a giant piece of shit. What I don't get is why Baltimore people hate DC so much. It's the same with Marylanders hating Virginians. Never got it. Baltimore thinks DC cares about it or something and I guess Maryland thinks Virginia cares about it.

Anyway vs. anyways

Anyways is a colloquial variant of the adverb anyway. It has a casual tone and may be considered out of place in formal or serious writing. In such contexts, anyway is safer.

Although considered informal, anyways is not wrong. In fact, there is much precedent in English for the adverbial -s suffix, which was common in Old and Middle English and survives today in words such as towards, once, always, and unawares. But while these words survive from a period of English in which the adverbial -s was common, anyways is a modern construction (though it is now several centuries old).

Anyways is sometimes useful for creating an informal or colloquial tone, which may be what these writers have in mind:

Anyway vs. anyways

Anyways is a colloquial variant of the adverb anyway. It has a casual tone and may be considered out of place in formal or serious writing. In such contexts, anyway is safer.

Although considered informal, anyways is not wrong. In fact, there is much precedent in English for the adverbial -s suffix, which was common in Old and Middle English and survives today in words such as towards, once, always, and unawares. But while these words survive from a period of English in which the adverbial -s was common, anyways is a modern construction (though it is now several centuries old).

Anyways is sometimes useful for creating an informal or colloquial tone, which may be what these writers have in mind:

    Anyways, it?s time to move on. [NY Times]

    Whatever. Home Improvement sucked anyways. [Bleacher Report]

But in writing that is not intended to have a colloquial tone, anyway works in its place?for example:

    Why is Google building a Google phone, anyway? [The Atlantic]

It is considered vulgar and it is not a real word.  I assume you comprehend the use of that term better than you previously demonstrated grammar skills (or lack thereof).  Carry on!

I am on the mailing list for JPJ Arena and got the presale info for (Broadway show) Sister Act.  I have no idea in hell if anyone here is into that sort of thing but if one were and they should happen to go to the ticket page right now, they could get in on the presale by using an offer code that is an article of clothing that nuns wear on their heads.  (I think Rush is perhaps the most horrible thing to ever come out of Canuckia.)

I am really disappointed RatBastard stopped mentioning bands as asides in every post. I thought it was such a fantastic tweaking of everyone. In fact, I sent him this PM which he never responded to, nor applied, which I submit now because I still think it's funny:

I'm not telling you how to post, but I love the "I'm mentioning a band in every post so no one can complain" thing, and I have a slight suggestion. Just once, do one of those posts where the first letter of every word or every line spell something out and have that be the musical message. Like:

Great times were
only

So great because
everyone agreed
embracing our values was important.

But libtard bastards

civility by

Better is subjective.  "I have seen" is correct.  "I seen" is not.  Actually I am surprised that the current generation actually thinks that is correct.  I figure it is all a result of social promotion and such.  It appears that in the current education system students get promoted each year unless they kill another student (unless the student in question has a pretty good excuse in which case he is merely a product of his environment and nothing is his fault).  There is so little emphasis on actually obtaining an education in the public school system any more that it is rather sad.

Incredible photography from 1964 Japan...rebellious youth in the wake of Beatlemania. To me the energy in these photos is totally punk rock. Amazing stuff.

I love Japan and the awesome people that live there.

I also like this kid, who may or may not be Japanese.

Walkonby headed to NY this spring:

(http://www.moma.org/images/dynamic_content/exhibition_page/109488.jpg?1405024068)

The Museum of Modern Art presents a retrospective of the multifaceted work of composer, musician, and artist Björk. The exhibition draws from more than 20 years of the artist?s daring and adventurous projects and her seven full-length albums?from Debut (1993) to Biophilia (2011)?to chronicle her career through sound, film, visuals, instruments, objects, costumes, and performance. The installation will present a narrative, both biographical and imaginatively fictitious, cowritten by Björk and the acclaimed Icelandic writer Sjón. Björk?s collaborations with video directors, photographers, fashion designers, and artists will be featured, and the exhibition culminates with a newly commissioned, immersive music and film experience conceived and realized with director Andrew Thomas Huang and 3-D design leader Autodesk.

I could do away with all the Spanish speaking content channels, all the endless list music channels, and all the movie channels.  Bottom line is that we really should be able to buy service with a set number of channels but not specific channels.  I may want a 50 channel package with my particular 50 channels while other might want 175 channels with very little crossover to those that I want to have.  Its kind of like going to the grocery store.  I don't want to have to buy 350 assorted canned good in order to get one  can each of chicken noodle soup, tomato paste, and black eye peas (see what I did there)...

Kosmo: adding to my Pivot related weirdness, Comcast responded via email to a request I put in thru their site about adding Pivot. (Again, I do not get it in SD or HD.) They said while they have no plans to add it in my part of the country at this time, they do have it elsewhere and have made PivotOD (in HD) available on all Comcast Xfinity OnDemand stations.

Which is weird but great. Maybe you can request FIOS add the HD versions to your FIOS OD?

I agree that the days of bundles are soon to coming to an end and people will be able to get channels a la carte but the "any 50 stations for $xx" model isn't going to happen. Not all channels are even price wise. ESPN =/= Fox Business News as far as carriage fees go.

Pivot HD was there all along, it was just in the next level up in packages... Which after all my moaning I ended getting when i re-upped my agreement, along with faster fios, etc, for about what I was paying before.  Had to add to Starz back, because in the words of Kosmette, there was no way she was going to miss her pirates (Black Sails) and men in kilts (Outlander).

My current beef is that i have to pay a  Regional Sports Networks fee for channels I will never watch but just happen to be in the package.  I find this explanation BS as it's basically oh look at us the poor "billionaires"  who own sports teams  and greedy universities are sticking it to us, so we get to pass along to consumers.

"This monthly fee helps to cover the rising cost of delivering regional collegiate and professional sports programming to subscribers. "

I find Frank Deford pretty useless these days on Morning Edition, but have to agree with his statement that our cable fees paid the EPSN, etc allow them to just go  buy content and then make money via advertising.  They produce little original content...

So much of this stuff you can figure other ways of getting... if you don't care about sports you really don't need cable...with the internet/netflix/DVDs you can live a happy life without cable...

Its sports where they get you.. and they know it...this is why the new service where people can get ESPN without cable is a big deal...

None of those people would have achieved their fame without the Les Paul!? Didn't Hendrix start off on a Strat?

Also, why the hell is Lenny Kravitz jammed in there?! And Sheryl Crow!? Doesn't she play like only acoustic guitars or something. Jimmy Page should have been the first name dropped in that article.

Regardless, very cool. That thing it going to go for millions. I was never a huge fan of Fender, but I've come to love Telecasters, but the Les Paul is THEE rock and roll guitar. At least to me. I just remember Jimmy Page, Bob Marley and Slash always using them. I still want one!

1) (Maybe hutch?) We discussed some older LP albums that i have that I'll give to you.

2) (No idea in hell who this one was!)  We had discussed the Motorhead t-shirt that Dave Grohl gave me at the FF show several years ago.

I'll be checking my mailbox to see if I get a response from either of you.

I am actually pretty skeptical that 11 year olds were aware -- on an All Star team, not a team that'd played together all year -- that some of the kids, who they may have met just a few weeks before this, lived on the other side of an imaginary dividing line the kids never knew about to begin with. I played Little League; I had no idea where the district boundaries were.

I mean, it should still 100% get stripped away from this team but I default to "the kids didn't know" until I see evidence otherwise. Occam's razor.

It was NOT an all star team. That's the point.  It was a team built out of the all stars, played together all year, and then played in a playoff that was for non-stacked teams.

I was under the impression the time period that the all stars played together was significantly shorter than a year, but I am probably mistaken. I still maintain that virtually no 11 year olds know the Little League district boundary.

If one of the kids was getting shipped in from 3 hours away, then OK, but absent some smoking gun I do not believe the kids knew in some widespread way that the lineup was ginned up.

I live right next to a LL complex.  The coaches, staff, and players all know full well who is and is not eligible to play.  The sad part is that the typical LL dad in many areas is some washed up never was ball player who is trying to re-live his missed youth by forcing his kid to take a the games way too seriously.

Again this was NOT an all-star team.  (In essence it turned out to be one because of the illegal players.)  The LL WS is made up of teams that are regular teams that play together all season.  At the end of the season they are district, are, region, etc playoffs all the way up to the finals in Williamsport PA.  NONE of the teams are all=start teams.  What this team did was break that rule and created an all-star team by picking kids out of many regions (or whatever their term is for the bounded areas) and proceeded through the LL WS with that stacked team.

What does it have to do with it? He basically tells a story about being poor and posits that the same adults who were cheating are probably heroes to the kids.

Hey I do very well for having lysdexia!  I made it through four years at VCU graduating with honors, SA Business/Accounting and passed the CPA exam.  The thing I have most trouble with is rambling drawn out diatribe like the article being discussed.  I can read technical manuals, programming guides, and most anything that is structured so to speak.  When it comes to reading something where you have to keep track of the story being related, I get lost.  Back when I actually tried to rad for pleasure, I would ending basically reading the entire book 3-4 times.  As I read, after about 1 - 1½ pages or so I lose track of who did what to who, when, and why.  I end up going back not quite to the beginning of where I started up and re-reading.  My mind will add and delete words randomly as well, which can make reading a novel very difficult.  Last book I read for pleasure was the Lord Of The Rings back in the late 70's early 80's while I was on active duty in the Marine Corps.

Just got home from a quick overnight trip to Baltimore.  My buddy Jeff wanted to go to the casino and asked me to ride with him.  I grabbed $700 out of the bank and off we went.  When I got home I had $2300 (and had paid Jeff $300 I owed him). Hitting a straight flush at 200:1 on a $10 bet is a good thing!

They did an interview not too long after Alive 2007 and said they were already working on another tour and that the pyramid was retired. They said their new live show would be better. But ever since 2007 they haven't teased anything in the slightest.

I was seated at the bar and a few minutes later, a middle-aged gentleman was seated next to me.

The bartender/waitress asks the gentleman if she can get his drink order and he orders a mimosa, then quickly changes his mind and requests a gin and tonic. Obviously, my ears perked right up. The waitress asks if he had a gin preference and the gentleman said, "Tito's, please." Now, its important to establish for this story, the man pronounced this in the absolute oddest way possible. He would say TEEEEE-tohs, easily 25% louder than any other word in his sentences and with a look of pure, unadulterated joy on his face as though "Tito's" was the literal elixir of the Gods.

The waitress corrects the man, "Uh, Tito's is a vodka, actually," and the guy is absolutely incredulous. "Seriously? I've been ordering gin and tonics for years and always get Tito's, are you sure?" The waitress ensures him Tito's is definitely a vodka and asks if that's what he wants. He nods in approval.

The waitress starts pouring the vodka in a tumbler and the guy literally stands up and goes, "What are you doing!? I asked for Tito's! I knew you didn't know what you're talking about. Tito's gin!" The waitress looks confused (as do I) and shows him the bottle, pointing with one finger to where it clearly says "Tito's Handmade Vodka." Again, the guy looks completely stunned but instead of relenting he continues to increase his volume.

"I don't want Tito's vodka, I want the Tito's gin! Why would you put vodka in a gin and tonic!? How long have you been working in a bar, is this a joke?! Get me the Tito's!!" The waitress apologizes and tells him again, they do not have Tito's gin (she politely leaves out that such a thing does not exist) and asks if she could use a different gin. "What are you talking about! Do you have rocks in your head? Every bar in the world has Tito's gin, it's probably the most famous gin on Earth!" At this point he is openly gesticulating trying to include other customers in his mockery of this waitress' lack of knowledge of his imaginary gin.

The waitress' jaw just drops and he finally bellows, "It's right there! Just get the Tito's," and starts pointing at the liquor selection. She turns and tries to figure out which bottle he is indicating and he starts doing the whole "a little more to your left, up two" type thing.

When he said "with the red logo" I realized what he wanted about a second before the waitress did and held my breathe. I wanted so badly to have my belief confirmed and when her hand fell on the bottle and he went "YES! THE TITO'S!!" I was in a state of absolute comedic ecstasy. As she turned around revealing the bottle to the entire bar section, I couldn't hold back the laughter anymore and keeled over right in my seat.

"Sir, this is Tanqueray actually, is this what you want?"

He immediately sat back down on his bar stool and, without any sense of embarrassment, said at a normal volume, "We call that Tito's where I'm from."

tl; dr - Man calls Tanqueray "Tito's" repeatedly and acts like a buffoon.

That article has absolutely nothing to do with this cheating scandal at all. It's completely off topic and his point that baseball is expensive is so obvious it didn't need stating.

uh oh...we got one guy who won't read and one guy who can't read.

Sounds like a drunken loser dad that lives vicariously through his athlete children. He was probably jealous that the city kids crushed his son's shitty all-star team. I knew way too many idiots like this guy growing up.

Who run Bartertown? (http://www.thinkgeek.com/product/iljp/?pfm=HP_FeaturedProducts_7_iljp&cpg=cj&ref=&CJURL=&CJID=2617611)

Have you noticed your child likes to play with cars, but in a very violent and anarchistic way? Do they set up elaborate chases complete with explosions and insane vehicular stunts? Think your young child could be the next Max Rockatansky (commonly known as Mad Max)? Well, it's time to find out with these Power Wheels Desert Drifters!

That's right, with Power Wheels Desert Drifters, your kids won't be fighting over gasoline - they'll be fighting over the extension cord. Just make sure they understand who runs Bartertown. YOU run Bartertown!

sidehatch, this would be a great day for you to test your ticket buying skills.
yep, but not really interested in hanging with a bunch of stinky trust fund hippies...let alone listen to the music
the only way that was bearable in the past was ingesting copious amounts of sunshine in a bag...and I've kinda outgrew that
(what's nice is Phish and Dead fans are not a protected class so I can endlessly make fun of them...although karma is a bitch  :o )

This is, admittedly, a weird distinction for me to make, but if I'm buying tickets to an event and a boardie asked me to get them one as well because they could not be online, I would not consider it any sort of big deal. But if someone asked me to buy them a ticket to an event I was not going to, I would consider it totally beyond all bounds of common decency. Which is ridiculous because its a totally inconsequential imposition to me either way. It just would FEEL different.

I should've been clear in my original post that I in no way, shape, or form would want you to assist me in this process as I wouldn't want to give you any of my personal information and unfortunately that would be a necessity in this engagement.

I'm a multiple browser type of person.... So on my Andriod I use Firefox primarily for this site and for most of my browsing I force the the forum into WAP mode so it's only text, by bookmarking this link

http://forum.930.com/index.php?board=1.0;wap2

But will often also view the forum with Firefox in regular mode, because of the pictures that get linked too...

you can reply, just can't quote...  and i sometimes have both wap2 mode and regular mode in separate tabs so i can  revisit a thread to see the pictures when i'm guessin' they are there.. plus you get the cool retro cellphone icon in your posts when replying in wap mode

http://forum.930.com/index.php?topic=470.msg404313#msg404313

the other downside to wap2 mode is when hutch and julian start frantically quoting each other it gets hard to follow the conversation.

America would be a much better place if obese people openly were shamed in this way. We treat no other destructive behavior with the white gloves-esque respect we show hambeasts.

Some people would argue the same as you regarding organized religion.  ;)

Ok...I preface this with no endorsement or experience

But I was a little shocked to find that Bayer sold this in Sears Roebuck catalogs

A heroin kit was available for around $1.50 and came with a syringe, two needles and a carrying case.  Children were given Cocaine Toothache Drops that sold for 15 cents a pack.  Asthma was thought to be cured by inhaling the smoke or vapor of opium.

ok.  I feel such an explanation, is adequate.  i wonder if in 50 years, will we look back at all the ads for every prescription drug to fix everything, in every magazine or television ad that attack us daily . . . in the same sheer levels of horror as we do at such things which are apart of our past, like heroin from sears, or cocaine for babies?

How random is this?

11,435 songs on my ipod, and a Saturday night drive home from a party resulted in two songs in a row being played from shuffle with direct reference to condoms:

1. Drive By Truckers "The Living Bubba"

I aint got no political agenda
Aint got no message for the youth of America
Except "Wear a rubber and be careful who you screw"
And come see me next Friday 'cause I got another show

2. Prince "Little Red Corvette"

I guess I must be dumb
'Cause you had a pocketful of horses
Trojan and some of them used
But it was Saturday night
 I guess that makes it alright
And you say what have I got to lose?
And honey I say...

So like I think sometimes it pays off to have kids.  On our cruise my son Steven hit a royal flush at the Ultimate Texas HoldEm table game.  Even with a minimum bet he won about $3000.00.  Tonight he booked another cruise for all of us with his winnings going to the Grand Caymans, Jamaica, Cozumel, and one other stop that I can't recall.  So next year in April y'all with have another week of peace and quiet with me here stirring up the rabble!  :)

I'd love to get front row seats to one of his shows, sneak in a big ass medium rare steak, cut it open so all the blood and juices are flowing out, and throw it on stage on the middle of his biggest song having it land right at his punk ass feet.

depraved-heart murder?

Yeah I have never heard of that either.  I am guessing the long list of charges is being brought in the same light that a laundry list usually is.

"Depraved-heart murder, also known as depraved-indifference murder, is an American legal term for an action where a defendant acts with a "depraved indifference" to human life and where such act results in a death. In a depraved-heart murder a defendant commits an act even though he knows his act runs an unusually high risk of causing death or serious bodily harm to someone else. If the risk of death or bodily harm is great enough, ignoring it demonstrates a "depraved indifference" to human life and the resulting death is considered to have been committed with malice aforethought aka premeditation.[1] In most states, depraved-heart killings constitute second-degree murder.[2]" (da wiki (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Depraved-heart_murder))

Thanks but I had already done that on my own.  I figured anyone else who was interested would have done the same! :)

BTW I have no knowledge of he actual facts in this case, but if the officers involved did handcuff and shackle this man, put him in the back of a van face down on the floor not secured, and then drove around with him back there (as rumors have it), they are probably in big trouble.

of course she's going to charge them...does she want to be reeected? can you imagine the pressure on her to do so? imagine if she hadn't.... Baltimore burning down anew...what i find strange is how little time it took her to make the decision..

2) You seriously are not quoting Wiki as an even slightly reliable source are you?

1) factual in that they are reporting a known phenomenon and they interview credible witnesses, yes.  are you trying to be all edgy and point out that we can't trust anything written by a major news outlet?
2) wikipedia is not a solid source for analysis, opinions, etc.  but for descriptions of events, it is serviceable.  there is a Wiki article on boiling - are you going to question the existence of boiling liquids because someone offers up wikipedia as a source of explanation?

c'mon, RB.  you can do better than that.

Alleged incidents

Baltimore

In 1980, 58-year old John Wheatfall broke his neck and became paralyzed during a ride to Baltimore's Southwestern District. Wheatfall was seated on a bench with his hands cuffed behind his back, when he was thrown to the floor and hit his head against the wall. Baltimore police vans did not have seatbelts at the time. The officer driving stated he had swerved to avoid an oncoming car, and an investigation did not find evidence of negligence. Wheatfall sued for $3 million, and was awarded $20,000 for his injury.[1]

In 2004, Jeffrey Alston was awarded $39 million after becoming paralyzed from the neck down as a result of a ride in a Baltimore police van.[1][2][7]

In 2005, Dondi Johnson Sr., a plumber, was arrested in Baltimore for public urination. Apparently uninjured at the time of his arrest, Johnson emerged from the police van paralyzed with a broken neck, and died two weeks later from pneumonia resulting from his injuries. Johnson stated he had been thrown face-first into the interior of the van during a sharp turn. His family sued the Baltimore police and were awarded $7.4 million, which was reduced to $219,000 under a cap imposed by Maryland state law.[1][7]

In 2012, Christine Abbott, a 27-year-old assistant librarian at Johns Hopkins University, was arrested at a party she was hosting at her home in Baltimore's Hampden neighborhood. She was handcuffed and put into a police van. Abbott later sued the officers in federal court, describing her ride as "like a roller coaster", and accusing the officers of braking short and taking "wide, fast turns" which slammed her into the walls. Police acknowledged that Abbott was not buckled in during her ride.[1][2][7]

The "rough ride" practice has been suggested as a factor in the 2015 death of Freddie Gray.[1][7] Gray was arrested on April 12, and was conscious and able to speak before being placed into a police van.[1] Following a 30 minute ride, Gray was comatose and not breathing.[1] He was treated at the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center of the University of Maryland Hospital, where his spinal cord was found to be 80% severed, an injury typical of a serious car accident.[1][7] Gray died a week after his arrest.[1] Medical experts say Gray may have sustained a neck injury during his arrest which could have been exacerbated during his transport.[1][7] Police acknowledged that Gray was not buckled in, contrary to departmental policy.[1][2][7]

It's like a jungle sometimes
It makes me wonder how I keep from goin' under

Broken glass everywhere
People pissin' on the stairs, you know they just don't care
I can't take the smell, can't take the noise
Got no money to move out, I guess I got no choice
Rats in the front room, roaches in the back
Junkies in the alley with the baseball bat
I tried to get away but I couldn't get far
Cause a man with a tow truck repossessed my car

[Chorus]
Don't push me cause I'm close to the edge
I'm trying not to lose my head
It's like a jungle sometimes
It makes me wonder how I keep from goin' under

Standin' on the front stoop hangin' out the window
Watchin' all the cars go by, roarin' as the breezes blow
Crazy lady, livin' in a bag
Eatin' outta garbage pails, used to be a fag hag
Said she'll dance the tango, skip the light fandango
A Zircon princess seemed to lost her senses
Down at the peep show watchin' all the creeps
So she can tell her stories to the girls back home
She went to the city and got social security
She had to get a pimp, she couldn't make it on her own

[Chorus]

It's like a jungle sometimes
It makes me wonder how I keep from goin' under

My brother's doin' bad, stole my mother's TV
Says she watches too much, it's just not healthy
All My Children in the daytime, Dallas at night
Can't even see the game or the Sugar Ray fight
The bill collectors, they ring my phone
And scare my wife when I'm not home
Got a bum education, double-digit inflation
Can't take the train to the job, there's a strike at the station
Neon King Kong standin' on my back
Can't stop to turn around, broke my sacroiliac
A mid-range migraine, cancered membrane
Sometimes I think I'm goin' insane
I swear I might hijack a plane!

[Chorus]

It's like a jungle sometimes
It makes me wonder how I keep from goin' under

My son said, Daddy, I don't wanna go to school
Cause the teacher's a jerk, he must think I'm a fool
And all the kids smoke reefer, I think it'd be cheaper
If I just got a job, learned to be a street sweeper
Or dance to the beat, shuffle my feet
Wear a shirt and tie and run with the creeps
Cause it's all about money, ain't a damn thing funny
You got to have a con in this land of milk and honey
They pushed that girl in front of the train
Took her to the doctor, sewed her arm on again
Stabbed that man right in his heart
Gave him a transplant for a brand new start
I can't walk through the park cause it's crazy after dark
Keep my hand on my gun cause they got me on the run
I feel like a outlaw, broke my last glass jaw
Hear them say "You want some more?"
Livin' on a see-saw

[Chorus]

It's like a jungle sometimes
It makes me wonder how I keep from goin' under

A child is born with no state of mind
Blind to the ways of mankind
God is smilin' on you but he's frownin' too
Because only God knows what you'll go through
You'll grow in the ghetto livin' second-rate
And your eyes will sing a song called deep hate
The places you play and where you stay
Looks like one great big alleyway
You'll admire all the number-book takers
Thugs, pimps and pushers and the big money-makers
Drivin' big cars, spendin' twenties and tens
And you'll wanna grow up to be just like them, huh
Smugglers, scramblers, burglars, gamblers
Pickpocket peddlers, even panhandlers
You say I'm cool, huh, I'm no fool
But then you wind up droppin' outta high school
Now you're unemployed, all non-void
Walkin' round like you're Pretty Boy Floyd
Turned stick-up kid, but look what you done did
Got sent up for a eight-year bid
Now your manhood is took and you're a Maytag
Spend the next two years as a undercover fag
Bein' used and abused to serve like hell
Til one day, you was found hung dead in the cell
It was plain to see that your life was lost
You was cold and your body swung back and forth
But now your eyes sing the sad, sad song
Of how you lived so fast and died so young so

[Chorus]

It's like a jungle sometimes
It makes me wonder how I keep from goin' under

rosie has major anger issues.  poor little cupcake needs to work on those before they kill her.  if there is ever a remake of the wizard of oz she would be perfect for the wicked bitch (oops I mean witch) of the west.

He's been trying to get a rise out of me for years. He bases me on our one intereaction at a Muse show about 8 years ago now. It's fine. He's a internet shit face who probably has no real friends. So. It's fine. You don't remember when he told people if they ever saw me in person that I should be shot, do you? Because he did that. Yeah. Real charmer.

Anyway. What the fuck, Caps? The Caps have lost on my ACTUAL birthday twice since 09. Or within a day or two more than double that. And now we're headed to the 3rd time in 6 years. Why do people even watch sports in this town...

I said, in an article filled with flowery language, that if you ever tried to cross the border into Julian's America, the guards on the tower should shoot you on sight. Seeing as (1) Julian's America isn't a real country, (2) as its not a real country there is no border for you to cross, and (3) not being a real country it doesn't have armed guards, it was pretty obvious to everyone with an IQ above 70 that it was poetic license. Its called painting a word picture. No sane person read that and actually thought I was advocating you being shot as you entered a fictional country. It's like if I called you a couch potato: I don't actually think you're a tuberous starch growing out of a loveseat.

Anyway. What the fuck, Caps? The Caps have lost on my ACTUAL birthday twice since 09. Or within a day or two more than double that. And now we're headed to the 3rd time in 6 years. Why do people even watch sports in this town...
They really have to blow this team up if they lose game 7, because they're clearly not going to ever hire a coach with any authority.

It was just "we're going to be at this show" him, miss p, and I? I think? I told her what I'd be wearing and she told me what she'd be wearing. We spotted each other. Said hi. Chatted for a couple minutes and went about our business. Ever since then he's said everything he says about me.

@ Julian: I don't remember the post, I just remember people messaing me saying they couldn't believe what you said and I generally avoid your threads because I don't find them funny. No offense. As for the Caps I think Trotz is the best/most well rounded coaching approach they've had. Nothing needs to be blown up. More time under his watch I think is nothing but good for this team. Either way it'll be extremely frustating to see them choke out of the playoffs yet again.

You may have went about your business, sir, but I assure you Miss P and myself spent the rest of the concert gagging and completely horrified by your body odor which we think may have constituted chemical warfare and therefore a violation of the Geneva Convention.

@ Julian: I don't remember the post, I just remember people messaing me saying they couldn't believe what you said and I generally avoid your threads because I don't find them funny.
So your version of events has shifted from "do you remember when Julian did this... because it happened" to "I didn't actually read it but somehow intuited it occurred from second-hand comments others made." Hey, Smackie, what do they call that in court? Oh, yeah, hearsay.

As for the Caps I think Trotz is the best/most well rounded coaching approach they've had. Nothing needs to be blown up. More time under his watch I think is nothing but good for this team. Either way it'll be extremely frustating to see them choke out of the playoffs yet again.
I think Trotz is somewhat overrated but I'll grant you he's better than the AHL rabble the Caps have tried to get away with before him. (How Bruce Boudreau has a job, I'll never know.)

The Caps sort of remind me of the early 90's Red Wings where its all about offense and no one really plays much defense and fans convince themselves of things like Mike Green being a good player despite the fact he's terrible at, you know, actually defending other people. And in Detroit, they didn't win anything until they got a coach to come in who was bigger than Yzerman and Federov and say, "look, this is not about winning MVPs and Art Rosses, you actually have to play fucking playoff hockey," and Bowman got through to them and I see no one getting through to OV and this core. I don't see any coach who could get through to them actually getting the job because Washington is one of those weird sports towns where if there's a coach/player dispute the fanbase will never, ever, ever side with the coach no matter how right they are. A Mike Babcock will never sign up for that circus. The Caps could never win a Stanley Cup and 39 year old OV could make insane demands about coaches and they'll get honored because "#8 Overchkin" will always resonate more with a huge % of the fanbase more than the Washington Capitals on the front.

Saying "I don't remember the post" doesn't mean "I didn't read it", because I did. But it was something dumb on a fucking message board almost a decade ago. So, yeah, I don't remember exactly what it said. I knew you would though.  Either way it's really stupid and I was just informing wml7.

I just don't understand how people can say no one has gotten through to Ovi or the core. All he's ever done is adapt his play [and stayed at the top of his game and this league for the better part of a decade] and never complained. Trotz not adjusting in this series has become maddening and last night he panicked and finally swithced up the lines. At the same time, their game got them up 3-1. Somehow they've always managed to get back into or stay in a series. Yesterday they pushed super hard for the 3rd period and it showed and they had the Rags on the ropes. I get it's hard to sustain that effort for the whole game, but the Caps are bigger, hit harder, and can keep up with that so called fast team. Maybe they're just in their head. Holtby stole games for them and in their 3 wins they had 5 goals. Holtby can't spin on his head every game. We'll see. It looks like both coaches are gonna go all out this last game. I mean... they have to.

She was on (cult favorite) Veronica Mars and (is still on) House Of Lies. She also did voice acting on Frozen and  Gossip Girl.

That said, she is not really an A-list actress, so to answer RatBastard's question, he gets a pass for not knowing this one too.

Caps were eliminated the second they signed Ovechkin, a player with perhaps the most pure talent of anyone in the league but one of the laziest, most one-way, no class, no respect for the game players ever to lace up the skates.  The Caps would be far better off trading him away to some team dumb enough to give them a boat load of hard working two-way grinders and a ton of draft picks.  Chances are that some tam would be foolish enough to go for it.

I'm not getting into no class, no respect for the game because that's the kind of ad homonym non-sequitur I loathe but OV is undeniably lazy defensively and a one-way player. I do think he'd work better in another market where he actually had to follow a veteran lineup that knew how to win.

The Caps would have to get a king's ransom but if Buffalo offers the #2 pick, Bogosian, a future 1st rounder and (Kane or Ennis or another 1st rounder), you have to at least have that conversation.

What part of it do you find to be so crazy?  He is no doubt a player with a lot of pure talent.  He does not use all of his abilities proven by his one-way play.  He is great as a cherry picker on the power play but has little else in his game at all.  Players like that are almost always a cancer to their teams because no one will man up and say what needs to be said, that being that pure talent in a lazy player does no team any good.  Washington would have a lot better hockey team if they built around a core group of solid players who skated hard at both ends of the ice every shift.  Not one guy with great talent and a history of using but a small fraction of his abilities when on the ice.

I still think he is a classless player, but agreed on the package trade deal being a smart move for Washington.  If the powers that be could broker a trade for a 2-4 solid two-way players and some draft picks, the Caps would be stupid not to go for it.

What does that taste like? I love Old Bay, but hate the Herr's Old Bay Crab Chips, as they have a strong vinegar taste... I prefer the Utz Crab Chips.  I would give the cheese curls a whirl as long as it is not like eating vinegar.

You know that commercial for hot sauce where the old lady says 'I put that shit on everything'?  I'm kinda like that with Old Bay.

The cheese straights are great.  The OB adheres to them much better than it does to the chips, which can give you a mouthful of salty OB at times.

Any personal views of anyone on the military, their role in the world today, armed conflict, or anything related, any time I hear some fucking reporter say that Memorial Day is to honor those who 'made the ultimate sacrifice' I want to punch them right in the fucking face.  Those men and women did not sacrifice anything.  They fucking DIED.  They gave their lives.  They had their head blown off, stepped on a land mine, got hit with a grenade, or caught a hunk of shrapnel just so the news creating asshats could sit in those comfy chairs and sugar coat the reality.  To hear someone use that term just so they can soften the fact that someone died, to use that term because it makes them feel better about someone else giving their life, fuck them.  Right, wrong, justified, or unjustified, they fucking died, they did not 'make the ultimate sacrifice'.  So to all those so called reporters out there fuck you and fuck you and fuck you.

Thanks I feel better now.

Not commenting on the subject matter but when I saw Walkie's post I thought to myself, "I wonder how long it will be before RatBastard shows up with a completely non-sequitur defense of a xenophobic anti-government loon?" What's amazing is that you were LITERALLY one second away from it being 12 hours on the dot. I mean, if we set the O/U at 12 hours, people who took the over just had the baddest beat in the history of bad beats.

Which is, admittedly, mildly interesting at best, but I just had to point it out. 1 second!

And I did not do as you said ever, let alone somewhere around the twelve hour mark.  So you are still waiting for that.  It will be a long wait.  IOW the overs would have won.   Had I replied within the content, it would have simply been to point out that this is standard practice (good or bad aside) for politicians in our system and is not limited to the particular politician in question.  Further I would not have said a thing to defend anyone.  So basically you are 100% wrong on all counts (except of course in your own
megalomaniacal mind).

Sometimes, I get depressed and don't believe in my,self . . . Then I read the comments, which I have to assume are from real humans, on TMZ stories, and suddenly I feel awesome about my life.

After about 6 months my work laptop is finally letting me use SoundCloud again. Except I can't log into my account lol. Baby steps I guess...
I would be glad to assist you with your laptop's difficulties. Can I PM you a GoToAssist link?
I think it's just because we use IE10 and they block a ton of shit. SoundCloud used to not work and only I Heart Radio did, now it I Heart stopped and SoundCloud works again. I also don't know what GoToAssist is and odds are it's blocked on my work laptop lol
might not be your laptop at all, but a webfilter/firewall
Yeah, I'd assume a firewall. Either way, it hates me listening to music, for sure. Just wish I could login to SoundCloud. Baby steps!

If anyone needs employment in the Columbia, MD area...
http://www.myfoxdc.com/story/29343345/professional-cuddling
Quote
Rob Andrews, his wife Tiffany and a business partner plan to open a cuddle store called Tender Embrace in the Columbia area sometime this year.

The idea came to them because of difficult times spent apart when Rob was deployed while serving in the U.S. Marine Corps.

For as little as $40, you can cuddle with a stranger for a relaxing and stress free session.

The company lists Double Cuddles for $120 and an Overnight Cuddle session for $500.

There is Entertainment Cuddle that includes movies or video games with snacks or beverages.

The company says it's completely safe, platonic and therapeutic and their website has pictures and biographies of the three cuddlers who are already on staff.

Some of the rules include arriving for your session recently showered, without perfume or cologne and try to have fresh breath.

Under the Frequently Asked Questions section online, the company addresses what to do is a "natural reaction" occurs.

The cuddler may request a change in position to make sure the session stays platonic and safe.

If you are interested in becoming a cuddler - they are hiring!

Race relations in this country will always suck as long as there are powerful people who can only keep their power by ensuring that these issues are not resolved.  Those people do everything they can to divide society, disempower the very people they say they are fighting for, and keep those people thinking that they are week powerless victims who have no ability to better themselves.

interesting, hadn't thought of it that way.  so getting rid of the likes of the NAACP would move race relations forward?

Nice try at back stepping, you were the one who mentioned that organization in the current discussion.  However if you read my post again you will see that I was talking about people, not organizations.  Surely you are aware that many people who are in positions of power in this country do everything they can to maintain that power and control.  This is true across the political and societal spectrum.  A good number of them go to the lengths of making sure that the people they are supposedly saving, redeeming, or improving life for perpetually need them to fulfill those roles, and they do so with no concern for the well being of their constituents.  I am sure that if you really gave it some thought it would be quite obvious who in our society does this.  I'm moving on.  I'm not playing your silly games.

Your retort is not only laughable and absurd.  My post had noting to do with any given party or segment of society.  The problem I posted about exists across all social and political platforms.  Anyone who denies that people like I described exist are as much of the problem as those very people are.  You condescending stereotypes are as much bigotry and hatred as the as the racism that you are ranting about.  You just showed your true colors and it is not a very pretty picture.

I do think it's kind of both. "Sys" and "admin" are accepted abbreviations for "systems" and "administrator" obviously. "Sysadmin" is a recognized portmanteau of the two abbreviations, agreed. But "sys admin," non-combined is obviously still two valid abbreviations that make sense.

It's like arguing "sex expert" isn't a valid term because "sexpert" exists; they're both valid ways of expressing the same thing.

Solution:  Eliminate minimum wage laws so employers have to compete in a free market system to pay what employees are really worth rather than be able to pass it off as paying what the laws says they have to pay.  The minimum wage law is where your collusion lies.

Post by: sweetcell on July 13, 2015, 03:36:40 pm
people have been booked for less.  spitting on someone can get you charged with assault:

Quote
Battery: Act Requirement

The criminal act required for battery boils down to an offensive or harmful contact. This can range anywhere from the obvious battery where a physical attack such as a punch or kick is involved, to even minimal contact in some cases. Generally, a victim doesn't need to be injured or harmed for a battery to have occurred, so long as an offensive contact is involved. In a classic example, spitting on an individual doesn't physically injure them, but it nonetheless can constitute offensive contact sufficient for a battery. Whether a particular contact is considered offensive is usually evaluated from the perspective of the "ordinary person".

Fromt: http://criminal.findlaw.com/criminal-charges/assault-and-battery-overview.html

while you might disagree, methinks that the ordinary person would perceive a pie to the face is offensive.

There is no such thing as a 'rebel' flag.  The flag you are speaking of is the Confederate battle flag.  The actual national flag of the Confederate States of America had several versions, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd.  Of those the 1st had three variations containing differing numbers of stars as the Confederacy grew.  The 2nd and 3rd national CSA flags did incorporate a smaller version of the battle flag within their design.

Really don't understand what's wrong with wanting people to be healthy. Being a big fat shit is bad for your health. The country has unreal standards for women, and everyone should be proud of who they are as an individual and not some mindless zombie molded by corporations, but that doesn't mean you can roll around on a scooter just gaining insane amounts of weight because "you're happy" with who you are.

He's gained 14 pounds in 3 months, primarily by stopping his vegetarian diet and switching to a daily lunch that is grotesque in total calories, calories from fat, and sodium. The fact that he wanted to this indicates he's an idiot. These are the actions of an idiot. I put no stock in how an idiot "feels" about something.

I will put $5 on Braden Holtby not being a starting goaltender in the NHL in 5 years. Not because of anything against Braden Holtby, that's just how it goes for goalies.

Nutritional info on Carnitas Burrito with what I'd assume are normal toppings (certainly nowhere close to everything or double anything)
(https://slimgur.com/images/2015/07/21/7754c02dd28acff8cf889e3d86e65ef2.jpg)

Hmm... considering for a person on a 2,000 calorie diet that's close to 70% of their daily calories, 1.5 times the amount of recommended saturated fat, and 125% of their recommended sodium intake, I'll go with "foe," actually.

But yes, it doesn't have any Monocalcium Phosphate and because of that, it is de facto healthy and a reasonable lunch choice. *eye roll*

Fabulous.

Hypothetical-average-2,000-calorie-diet person's "lunch" is now only slightly more than 50% of their daily caloric intake, 50% of their recommended daily saturated fat intake, and 25% more sodium than they're supposed to have in their entire day. Again, for lunch. Which is ostensibly one of the three meals (plus small snacks) nutritionists recommend people eat. How perfectly reasonable.

I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who's exercise regimen isn't standard deviations above mean. You can eat Chipotle every day for lunch because you're a long-distance runner. That's great. My point has always been that the effects of eating something like that daily for lunch for the 99% of the world who aren't professional athletes/log the amount daily calories burned through exercise you do is going to be an overwhelmingly net-negative for that person's weight and health.

The reality that something might work as part of an active NFL player's diet does not make that thing (absent the extremely abnormal circumstances inherent of being an active NFL player) "healthy" or "reasonable" for the general population.

To me that style actually looks like a massive pile of yellow post it notes randomly stuck on the screen with no concern for readability at all.  The flatness of it makes it horrid.  A little bit of texture (for lack of better term) would go a long way towards making it better.  The whole flat web design is really a poor design and highly unprofessional.

I do not think so.  The flat design is very much unreadable, wastes terrible amounts of web space, uses extremely limited real content, .  It could be that most flat designers just do not do a very good job of it.  We both know how some designers think that their job is to impress the web user community with all of the cool coding tricks they know rather than build a site that is easy to navigate and intuitive.

Many of the flat pages fall to a number of faults.  One is that they are often coded a single huge run-on page rather than logically segregated into pages of unique content so to speak.  I have seen some flat sites that are one continuous pages that scrolls on and on and just randomly changes from topic to topic.  Other waste so much screen space that content which (properly designed) would fit onto one or at the most two screens, scrolls on forever and ever (see http://www.cpanel.com a TERRIBLE design).  On that page everything is so big and bulky with so little real content (not a lot of useless self advertising) that I would never even consider using their products.  An even worse page is http://www.sprint.com, I would fire any web designer who even suggested a page a poorly designed as that one.  Not only does that page fall to much of the typical shortcomings of flat design, but the use of those horrid squares/tiles and the clashing colors make it difficult to look at let alone use.

Yes they are 'modern', 'new', and 'the rage', and the 'trend', but none of those mean they are good at all.  While a portion of the web community has started using handheld devices of some sort to browse the web, very few use those exclusively and a majority still use computers most of the time.  It really is very difficult to find the real content on these sites, especially sites such as the cpanel site I referenced above.  The amount of real content on that page could very easilly (and very cleanly as well) be fit on less than one screen, yet in that absolutely horrid design I have to scroll about six pages down to get to any amount of useful data.

I understand that to some scrolling may be easier than touching the screen.  That is not the issue.  The issue is in the implementation of the concept with a totally flat all run together layout.  If designers would do something to make the page more readable and fill it with more content and less fluff, it would be a lot better.  The way a lot of the one page sites are, there is no segregation of content what-so-ever and it literally looks like someone wrote information on a pile of sticky notes and then randomly threw them at the screen with no concern for what landed where.

Take for example a page that has a few flaws that make it damn near useless, Etsy.  Get rid of the big graphic at the top of the page (it adds nothing at all to the page and shoves the first real content almost all the way off of the opening screen, a MAJOR flaw to make users scroll to even get to the first real content), get rid of the "hand" graphic and related content (again it has no value at all and is mere space filler/fluff, more is not always better), and get rid of the "Satisfied Customers", "Passionate Sellers", "Secure Transactions" content (again it adds absolutely nothing to the page but is space filler fluff).

Make those changes and that site is 100% better.  I still do not like the flatness of the site but it would be vastly improved with the clutter and fluff gone.  Designers who code the new flat scheme generally seem to think that adding more content (whether it actually adds to the site or merely clutters it up with fluff) is a good thing.  A well designed page is one where a user can get in, find what he wants, and get on with his day.  Not one where he has to search for every little thing he is looking for such as is often the case with flat designs.  Bottom line is the way they are currently implements, flat design pages are not intuitive at all.

There used to be a guy at my place of employment who stopped to help a broken down motorist on the Beltway, and the guy ended up being hit by a third car, putting him in a wheelchair for the rest of his life.

And as far as free range goes, call me sexist, but I'd probably be more open to it if I had boys and lived in the country like my brother and I did growing up. But we don't and we don't.

I was given a 24 pack of Mountain Dew. I do not drink Mountain Dew. I also am not technically a SysAdmin. I don't think my office is doing this correctly.

Free range parenting is one of the dumbest terms of this millennium. 

Is that your comment on the term or the ideas themselves? If the former, do you have a better name? If the latter, why?

I myself don't care one way or another beyond what i already stated, just interested in hearing opinions.

I, personally, agree with the general concept.

To me, the thing that's weird about it is, a few decades ago, that was "parenting." It was the norm. Then people started going cuckoo bananas and we had to make up a term for those parents who went over the top and deviated from the norm ("helicopter parents" et al). There's something about calling it "free range parenting" that makes it seem as though this normal balance between security and not suffocating your kids is now a deviation from the norm, that it is the weird minority opinion. Which, if true, is sad. It's like people who use terms like "fat shaming" and "thin privilege" in an attempt to rebrand what is right as wrong and what's wrong as right.

if there is one thing, I know about other human beings, on the road . . . never, ever, stop to help them or pick them up. ever.  even if they are on fire, dying on the side of the medium, waving and begging for you to help.  never, ever.
