I’m not following the racist thing. 

Well, a lot of Hispanics lay sod.  A lot of Mexican beers go great with lime.  Sod layers generally don't make a lot of money.  Maybe I'm the damn racist.

When I lived in England, I discovered cricket absolutely slays this category. And it lasts for days. 

This. Great sport in which an entire match can be boiled down to 5 minutes of highlights.

With cancel culture being what it is today it would be impossible to remake "Two girls One Cup."

It would have to be "Two 'My Pronouns are She/Her/Hers Cisgender' Girls, One 'Communal Equitably Made Sustainable' Cup"

I think it's bullshit that at almost all restaurants, iced tea costs the same amount as soda.  On a per glass cost, the soda probably costs 3-5x what iced tea costs.  Yet I have to pay the same $2.50 for a simple iced tea, than the guy who drinks 4 cokes at lunch.

Yeah, I like to save my liquid calories for booze.  It cracks me up too on the menu, it'll have a one whole side of the menu to mention their 137 beers on tap at 137 different price points.  And then in the bottom right corner, to save room, they just write "Soft Drinks, Tea, Coffee:  $2.95"  How hard is it to cordon off tea and make it cheaper?  Is it the lemon's fault?  

I wonder how much the flavor-aide cost in Guyana.  Could you have opted for cyanide iced tea for less money?  I just keep coming back to the random thought---how'd they get all that fucking cyanide in Guyana?  I'm picturing some Jim Jones stooge strolling into town, trying to blend in speaking local creole and asking every sinister looking local, "I'm looking for my friend Cy.  Do you know Cy?  Cy Nide?  He weighs about 50 kgs."  Or did one of those guys, between lunatic rantings from Jones and music time, learn how to cultivate the cassava plant down there and synthesize it into lethal cyanide?

A can of Lipton "Brisk" ice tea (with lemon) has ½ the calories in a can of Coca~Cola & Lipton also has less caffiene.

It’s got sugar in it I guess. Tea has no calories without sugar or close to it.

If I had ever been lucky enough to be in this position, literally the most isolated person in the universe.....

 

it would have been the exact time my fucking ex-wife would have called.

i posrep every Seinfeld reference on any thread i come across, even if i don't agree with the point or dont even have an opinion. and there are a LOT of Seinfeld references.

that is the genius of the show.

i personally probably make or think at least one reference a day on average.

i mean as an artform it's pretty astounding.

And when I post a Seinfeld reference, please don’t post a video, gif, or meme to show where the reference came from. That’s so annoying. I do a solo act. I don’t need your help and whoever gets it gets it. (This isn’t addressed at you, mchookem. I don’t think you’ve ever done that. But I take pride in my work and I don’t need anyone piggybacking on a perfectly good Seinfeld quote/reference that can stand on its own.)

Starting to think I might be wrong about some of the realignment stuff. But I can’t just go back & say that, I’ll look like an idiot. 

You either post as a hero, or you post long enough to see yourself become the villain.

I found this funny, I’m looking thru a obituary for work and I come across this in one of them. 
 

Mary graduated from St. Agnes Academy in 1945 at the age of sixteen, then graduated from University of Southern California. Later, she went to business school to learn to type and take shorthand.

You’re telling me she didn’t learn to type or write till after she graduated from USC?

Well, it's not like she was there on a crew scholarship.

I had a package show up at the house, something I didn't order. My name and address on the box but it was from some company I'd never even heard of. After I dove into the mystery I figured out the label got messed up and they had stuck a new label on it with my info. Which means I have a package out there somewhere that had a messed up label and it got sent to the wrong person too. Anyway, I FB stalked the person whose name was on the enclosed packing list.

I dreamed I graduated from HS again, but it was a different school. It was from a Catholic HS in Pittsburgh (where I've never been),  and they didn't care I'd already graduated from somewhere else.

Anyway, I won an award. I only found out when I was looking through the program for the day's festivities. Our class was going to honor the valedictorian, salutatorian, most likely to succeed, and a few others, and then below all that, all alone, spaced for emphasis, was my award:

"MaybeACoordinator: Scent of a Knight Award."

"Very cool," said some rando looking over my shoulder. "That's a very nice award."

If I had to pick any award to win, it might be that one.
