  1. I feel like I'm looking in the mirror here with a few small tweaks. I can't see myself voting for a Republican for quite a while and will actively work against any GOP candidates that went full-Trumpkin during this error. I'm a hunting, fishing, gun owning, beer drinking, and in an industry connected to Oil & Gas, Texan.
  2. How is Burr different then? I mean, I know he subpoenaed Donnie Jr. and there's the whole SSCI report that shut down a lot of Trump's conspiracy theories, but is it all because he gave his brother in law information too? But that's just publicly available info that anyone could have, amirite?
  3. I went to high school with the CFO - his dad was my dentist growing up. Great dude, so glad that he has done well. Thanks for noticing @BTW the gutters and strikes ref really tied the post together IMO.
  4. Were you working from plans on these or did you just wing it? I like the looks of those and might have to make a pair for myself.

  6. Fair point on their portcos over the last 12 months for sure, definitely more gutters than strikes. Some of them that I think they did pretty good on within the last 2-3 years: Ameredev, Silverback, Forge and Felix. I work with another one that had their assets under LOI that totally fell apart a few months ago. I think the buyer lost quite a bit of cash that had already gone hard.
  7. Damn, that would be pretty big news if they shut the whole Dallas office. I've worked with some of their portcos that have not gone according to plan over the last few years for sure, but that still would be a surprise.
  8. I'm having this exact issue with my family right now. We go to the beach for a week every summer - my parents, sister's family and my family - and have been doing this almost every year going back to when we were little kids ourselves. We stay in the same beach house and I look forward to it every year and love it, my kids love it too, especially since their cousins are older than them and they idolize them. My sister lives north of Dallas and her 16 year old daughter now works at a Chick-fi- A, and her husband is a Project Manager for a construction company and has been working/going to his office through this whole ordeal. We live in East Texas and live down the street from my in-laws who are 67 and 73 but in pretty good health. I told my mom last week that I didn't think we were going to go down if my sister and her family were going to be there as well. I barely had the words out of my mouth and my mom starts in on me with a lecture about how we're going to have to leave the house eventually and what are you going to do in the fall when the kids go back to school, etc. and I snapped. I wasn't cussing, but it was very obvious that I was pissed off about her second guessing my decision and lecturing me. She took offense to my reaction and didn't understand why my mom couldn't comment on my decision (not at all what it felt like to me). I can see both sides of this coin and did not say anything about my perception of the risk of my parents being exposed to my niece. Pops is 67 years old, 30 lbs. overweight, has emphysema, and still hits the lung darts. The chances are if he gets CV19 that it's not going to be a mild case. I'm more concerned about my family exposing my in-laws than I am the exposure to us. If she doesn't agree with my decision, I get it, but I don't get lecturing someone for their decision in this current situation. Especially when they are erring on the side of caution. I wouldn't have any issue about going to the beach and hanging out with everyone, but spending a week in the same house with someone who works at a Chick-fil-A is too big of a risk for me. Now we are in a stand off to see who is going to reach out first and I hate it. I'll bite the bullet and check in at some point in the next few days, but this shit sucks.
  9. What the fuck is the deal with the huge updates? I looked this morning and there is a 31 GB update. I live out in the sticks and have pretty shitty internet and an update that big will take me days to get done.
  10. That seems like a pretty big ask, don't be so unreasonable Bullneck.
  11. I guess I was unaware there was a % of assets qualifier for insider trading charges. She must have a ninja ass broker if he saw the Covid fallout coming and knew to go long on Citrix.
  12. Plunder is still my favorite warzone mode. You can flip the whole game around at the end if you are behind and catch someone trying to deposit some cash. We've been playing the small map modes quite a bit too, with Shipment 24/7 and whatever the new one is called. It's a great way to level up weapons, not so great for the K/D ratio, if you're in to that sort of thing.
  13. Did Loeffler contact her broker and tell him to sell? I think her story on this has already "evolved" somewhat.
