  1. Beer was $1.50 a pitcher, a $1.25 at happy hour, at the Stables in Fall '73. We used to get rounds of pitchers now and then.
  2. Pretty what I've heard. How much of that originates from disgruntled, failed rockers I don't know.
  3. Re. tweet...Note the date. She is in no way supporting his illegal actions here, though I assume you want people to think she is by posting it.
  4. Great example of what I was talking about! I see you're beginning to get the difference! As you now apparently see, this story really could be true. That's what makes it funny!
  5. A comic from Queens no one has ever heard of is your picture of the political left? OK. I certainly can't argue with that.
  6. Is it you are trying to imply ANYONE supporting this guy's actions as they are coming out? Or are you just venting? Implying "the left" supports this kind of behavior really is not very correct.
  7. Is it just me or is the fact that a new election is being ordered in NC because of long known but only recently dealt with electoral cheating and that the most recent candidate involved has admitted to "misstating facts under oath" (by "accident" while under the influence of drugs and illness and in no way on purpose to cover up anything, of course!!!) an issue for anyone? That sort of thing strikes directly at the basis of a democracy far, far more so than fake or confused news.
  8. Would it be unbecoming of me to say that the Monkees as a while were always afflicted with tongue cancer? That said, I got taken in too originally...I bought the original Meet the Monkees album. Threw it away at the dump a couple of summers ago.
  9. Good lord...is food like that even ALLOWED in Texas? Outside of Austin, anyway?
  10. What I've read about FV3 says that while it may not be as good as the fully mature GFS, GFS cannot grow any more for some reason. FV3 is the base new model that can be upgraded much further apparently as it is further tuned and revised.
  11. "the Canadian model also predicts big snowstorms that ultimately vanish." While I don't know all the humorous details (!!!), in one of my marine weather courses the teachers (graduate meteorologists who forecast for the oil rigs) said the Canadian model is tuned towards combining systems as that is a common event in Eastern Canada as systems come west to east across the continent while other systems come up the coast. These are very chaotic events but also very important to predict (e.g. Sandy on which the Cdn models did especially well). Small input errors change near hurricanes to mere fronts and vice versa. Got down to 5F yesterday and still single digits F today. That's downright bitter cold for here...coldest temps in a decade or so. Still no significant snow though we almost always catch a series of nor'easters in Mar/Apr which depending on their tracks dump huge amounts of any or all of water, ice, snow, sleet, etc. (Oh the joys of life at the triple point of water.)
  12. The demonstrated problems with civil forfeiture are not the positions of the traps or even if some drugs or drug monies are interdicted.
  13. Stay hard Sulphur Springs police department among many others...assuming they're still the forfeiture trap they used to be. The Supremes were unanimous on this one. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/courts_law/supreme-court-says-constitutional-protection-against-excessive-fines-applies-to-state-actions/2019/02/20/204ce0d4-3522-11e9-af5b-b51b7ff322e9_story.html “This system — where police can seize property with limited judicial oversight and retain it for their own use — has led to egregious and well-chronicled abuses,” Yup.
  14. Stay hard sailor from VJ-day photo... https://nationalpost.com/news/world/sailor-in-iconic-v-j-day-times-square-kiss-photo-dies-at-95
  15. Bohemian Rhapsody is still playing in the first run theater here. Aquaman has been relegated to the 2nd run theater for 2 weeks already. Can't believe BH's staying power. Production costs: $52,000,000 Gate to date (world): $853,945,643 Not a bad return on investment for the angels involved.
  16. I'm feeling a burn. I'm not ready for it. Sanders supporters remind me of nothing so much as the old Ron Paul supporter crowd. Too many clueless, close-minded cranks in both groups.
  17. Yes, Smollett appears to be very much in the wrong and deserves any smackdown he may get. CNN will not offer him a job for doing it, however. That's either just dumb on B's part or, more likely, an example of the typical projection we see so often in such sources.
  18. "Satire" of this sort really only works when the subject at hand can be imagined to be true at least in some universe. The Onion does this sort of piece all the time and far better. When such a piece can't be imagined to be true at least in some universe, such a piece just comes off as a somewhat sad sort of rant.
  19. Interesting voter fraud testimony in NC today. About as clear a case of felony election fraud as you're likely to see. From an evangelical minister no less! (If history shows us anything, it shows that when your god is on your side anything goes to ensure that god's minions win including ignoring any and all of that god's prior commandments about honesty and other assorted mayhems.) Anyway, no illegal immigrants necessary. Then there's the recent tweet from the President: "Trying to use the 25th Amendment to try and circumvent the Election is a despicable act of unconstitutional power grabbing"!!! Who knew using the Constitution to operate within the Constitution was unconstitutional???!!!
  20. I've wondered about our seemingly high rates of injury esp. those occurring in practice myself. Haven't run any comparative stats though.
  21. I read the series with my kids as well when it came out. Once even drove 100 miles each way to a rural Wal-Mart to buy 4 copies for children and nieces on release day as we were staying out at a remote outport with the family. There was a literal pallet of copies there!!! (I got in around 10 a.m. and the pallet was already about 1/3 down!) The town serves probably 30 or 40K people in its catchment area. That said, I read the entire series again not long ago and still found it a fine time passer.
  22. Announcer said that Dixon said he twisted his ankle in practice yesterday.
  23. Stream from gameday media link thread is working fine. Bing, BTW will play the link directly without need of fiddling around. http://jtvs-mbb-big12-tcu.cdnllnwnl.nlss.neulioncloud.com/nlds/jtvs/mbb-big12-tcu/as/live/mbb-big12-tcu_hd_3000.m3u8
