  1. If this lasts for 4 hours Imma sue your ass
  2. Thanks for that link. I know what I'll be doing for the rest of the day.
  3. This is the second time you have made me close my office door and get myself composed. You are a hell of a writer. Your daughter was a remarkable young woman.
  4. Remember, this is the organization that let Beltran walk over a $1M difference. Not per year but over the life of the contract. I'm still not sold on our GM but it looks like ownership has deeper pockets than ever before.
  5. Bobby Witt Jr signs with the Royals long term. He has opt outs after 7 but I am gobsmacked. Better than I thought this FO would do. https://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/39464757/sources-bobby-witt-jr-agrees-11-year-2888m-deal-royals
  6. "A few more bible studies and prayer circles and he'll be fine" - Dayton Moore
  7. I prefer my prostitutes sans penis.
  8. A racist POS or several RPOSs tore down a statue of Jackie Robinson outside a little league baseball complex in Wichita. It was found, beyond repair, yesterday. https://www.kmuw.org/news/2024-01-30/league-42s-jackie-robinson-statue-found-destroyed A go-fund me has been organized to get it replaced and help fund the local non-profit that runs the league. I think it would be awesome if the efforts of these shitstains would backfire and serve as a springboard for even more racial harmony. https://www.gofundme.com/f/replace-our-stolen-jackie-robinson-statue
  9. Seems as though it was fucked, just like we all thought. In a release sent out by IMSA late Monday, the error was explained: Due to an officiating error in race control, IMSA inadvertently announced and subsequently displayed the white flag with under three minutes remaining in the race. At the end of the lap, the race-leading No. 7 GTP car then received the checkered flag with 1 minute, 35.277 seconds still remaining, ending the race short of the planned 24 hours by effectively one lap. Based on Article 49 of the 2024 IMSA Sporting Regulations and Standard Supplementary Regulations, should the checkered flag be inadvertently or otherwise displayed before the leading car completes the scheduled number of laps or before the prescribed time has been completed, the race is nevertheless deemed ended when the flag is displayed. https://www.autoweek.com/racing/more-racing/a46575517/inadvertent-checkered-flag-ends-rolex-24-early/
  10. I think both cars were sandbagging a little before the caution but I don’t think either was overtaking the other without a mistake.
  11. That was weird. TV said 2 to go and checkers!! within 30 seconds. I’m a Penske fan so I’m pleased but somebody needs to explain that shit.
  12. We have the Grizzly in the back of our shop. We mainly use it for making shipping boxes out of plywood but it gets some personal use by employees after hours. It does a nice job.
  13. Wordle 952 6/6* 🟩⬜🟩⬜🟩 🟩⬜🟩⬜🟩 🟩⬜🟩⬜🟩 🟩⬜🟩⬜🟩 🟩⬜🟩⬜🟩 🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩 I really dislike this shit.
  14. I suppose the hitchhiking germs from the bed of your S-10 is just a bonus, right?
  15. An interesting sidenote: Spirit came into existence when Boeing Military was pulled out of Wichita.
  16. Good luck, Bruin. I’m sending all the mojo I can spare your way.
  17. I'm not a polished woodworker with lots of equipment but I am involved with a machine shop and equipment for metal working. Always get the next size bigger if you have the floor space and $$$ to do so.
  18. Musta been a bad bitch.
  19. County opened N/S road last night but it has drifted shut already. -2 and 25 mph winds. Doesn’t compare to @Burt but it’s about as bad as it ever gets here.
  20. Yeah, but didn't you hear? There are 3 1/2 million people affected by this alert! 3 1/2 MILLION!!
  21. How’s you make it through the blizzard? You likely had much higher winds than we had. I saw reports from GC of 60+mph.
  22. My tenant just opened my lane with his skidsteer. It’s nice to be able to get out but I kinda liked being locked in. There was one drift where the lane drops down to the garage that was probably 4’ deep. I’ve been here 30 years and it’s the first time I’ve seen that. Lord knows we need moisture but I like it better when it’s rain. I forget, Kenny, you in western Kansas, Colorado or Nebraska?
  23. We will be about 10 degrees warmer. Come on down.
  24. How’s it going up your way. We had our second 10”er overnight but this one has wind. Gusts to 40mph. My lane is drifted shut and the power has been off since 5:00am. We have the generator keeping the furnace running but I only have 5 gallons of reserve gas. Evergy says we’ll get power back today but we’ll see. Worst case, I’ll have to have a buddy bring me some fuel. Power is still on in town.
  25. That means "who gutted the chicken?" for you non-French speakers.
