  1. So people were trying to get her out of the car BEFORE she wrecked? Why were they trying to get her out before the wreck? Did they somehow know her impending doom? If so, THAT is the story here. TMZ articles always read like a fucking ADHD-riddled meth head wrote them.
  2. We now know what the next republican talking point will be - women obviously cannot be trusted to vote the right way.
  3. That one hurts. He, Gowdy and Garagiola were the voice of baseball of my childhood.
  4. I'm thinking Nick Adams is a MAGA-troll.
  5. Bill Russell is gone. https://www.nytimes.com/2022/07/31/sports/basketball/bill-russell-dead.html?campaign_id=60&emc=edit_na_20220731&instance_id=0&nl=breaking-news&ref=headline&regi_id=82098454&segment_id=100088&user_id=e2eb576832894f8744c5954a7e9eef4e

    Your Favorite Song

    My favorite song changes often, but I've been listening to a lot of Billy Joe lately and this is by far my favorite song of his.
  7. We have a family on the next street over who profess to be Catholic. The Catholic church wasn't strict enough, so they bought a 38 ft camper and travel to attend an extreme church in North Dakota. They have six kids aged 3 to 16 (and another on the way) and home school all of them. One girl is a year younger than my 9 yr old daughter, and I cant tell you the number of times she has knocked on our door in the middle of the school day, sometimes more than once a day. We have a park at the corner of our street and those kids are there sometimes 4 to 5 hours a day during school hours. A couple of months ago, the 8 yr old wrote my daughter a note telling her how good of a friend she is. She showed it to me because she was concerned over her very poor spelling and wanted to know why it was so bad. Not all, but many of those who homeschool and who are ultra-religious dont homeschool because they think they can provide a better education. They do it to shield their kids from experiencing the real world, and are actually doing more harm to the kids than the real world ever would. There is no way in hell that girl would be going into the 3rd grade in a public school from what I saw on that letter. Also, yall can take these fucking Wilks brothers back. They're causing a ruckus up here, too, buying up acrage and cutting off access to public land.
  8. I guess, in his defense, it was gusting to 48 mph for half an hour when outflow from a storm pushed through.
  9. American Badass Bobby "Shazam" Ritchie canceled his show in Minot tonight because the wind was blowing. I just checked and its 13 mph. The Trumpers are not happy!
  10. (I'm obviously behind on this thread)
  11. Any other reviews since December? Was thinking about making the upgrade, but want to be certain its actually an upgrade before doing so.
  12. We lived in Barrow from 1998-2000 after I got out of the AF. I worked for the NWS and my wife got a job with the North Slope Burrough school district. There were a lot of teachers up there from our neck of the woods (Ark-La-Tex) because they could make 2 1/2 to 3 times what they'd make back home. We were lucky in that we could make a "bush order" from grocery stores in Anchorage and the government would reimburse us for the shipping. Winters were LONG, but the 84 straight days of sun in the summer were amazing! Playing softball in snow flurries in the middle of July is probably something I'll never get to do again.
  13. Looks like he's got his marching orders for his next assignment.
