  1. Clearly the cop who filed the report lied. He wasn't dragged 20 feet, he didn't rip his clothes or sustain injuries. 100% lies. The type of Police reform this country needs to start restoring faith in police would require: This cop to be fired. This cop to go on a National Registry of Not-Eligible-For LEO positions. If a felony charge was fabricated (it was in this case). Charges should be filed against the officer. Until we get changes like that, FTP.
  2. Chris Layton would be my only guess, but he would have probably been a little younger in '83.

    Getting old sucks

    The older I get the more work it requires to feel good. Through my 40s, feeling good was the default condition. I'd have to do stupid shit like binge drink, or skip sleep for days to feel like crap. Now in my late 50s, I can go from feeling good one day to feeling like I'm on death's doorstep the next day just by minor behavior differences. The order of things that instantly make me feel 20 years older a day later: Not getting enough sleep Drinking more than 1 drink Skipping daily exercise Overeating or just eating too much junk food. I guess I should be grateful that there still is a path to feeling good, but life was so much more forgiving when I was young. I got 4 hours sleep last night and my knees and lower legs hurt and I feel like a frail old man. Fuck me, and fuck YouTube Shorts.
  4. I don't think I've ever seen a storm with that many sustained lightning strikes. Waco is about to get some Electroshock Therapy.
  5. It was a valve that was buzzing, and they didn't want to open/close it with crew on board. Sounds like they'll unload the crew and then on/off/on/off/on/off the thing.
  6. Going to have to disagree with you there chief. By the late '70s there was a lot of tech going into high end bikes.
  7. You can joke all you like as long as they leave Asleep at the Wheel as the opening bad of the festival. I don't drink much anymore, but opening day of ACL is always penciled in to go hard. I'm looking forward to getting an overpriced carafe of wine and kicking back in the sunshine listening to Ray Benson and whoever else he has in the band this year. By the end if the set, I'm going to have a slight buzz that i hope to hold well into the evening. A great way to kick off the day.
  8. I had to think a while on this one. In general, I don't like old stuff. New monitors, computers, and phones are usually just better. My old tech: 1992 IBM Model-M keyboard. Yes, a mechanical 'clickity' keyboard. The greatest, and most indestructible keyboard ever built. I have a work and personal computers on my desk in my home office. This is attached to my personal computer because there would be no way to type while on Team calls unless you were muted. 1989 Trek Road Bike. It was high-end when I bought it new. I've tried new bikes, but the geometry doesn't feel as good to me. I'm going to ride this until it can't be repaired. Yeah, wireless electronic shifters are cool, but FU, I have down-tube shifters. I think I have an old VGA monitor in the guest bedroom, but I wouldn't use that thing.
  9. I've got no suggestion there. It was an A1C number that came in 0.1 away from being diabetic that did it.
  10. For me, Community had higher highs than any other sitcom. Perhaps it's over all average doesn't place it at the top, but the peaks were amazing. I can't think of any other sitcom where I've searched for and rewatched some episodes. The top of my list is Remedial Chaos Theory where they roll dice to see who goes downstairs to pick up pizza. If you haven't seen it, they run through the same roll of the dice getting different numbers (different timelines). The setup is fun, but the "Darkest Timeline" is the payoff. And then ending with the "Best Timeline" where they're rocking out to Roxanne was perfect.
  11. Where did you find this deal? My wife is going to ask the doc for it in a couple weeks at her next checkup. In case Insurance doesn't approve it, I'm looking at options to pay it directly. I'm seeing prices in the $1k and above range.

    Google alfredson protocol for achilles tendonitis The exercise protocol has had a bunch of controlled science studies that validates it works. In a nutshell it involves doing an exercise that stretch the calf and achilles tendon under load (eccentric heel drops). I trashed my achilles tendon in a Half Ironman and after a surgeon couldn't help and a PT was clueless, I stumbled on this on the web. (It had only been published a few years earlier, so it wasn't all over the web like today). It worked. https://www.verywellhealth.com/the-alfredson-protocol-for-achilles-tendonitis-2696560
  13. If they wanted to give the folks turning right their own protected lane, they would have done away with the Yield sign and had a solid white stripe from the corner...They also probably would have not allowed the gas station entrance there. But as it is, Yield means yield to all traffic.
  14. As the quote goes, This is our concern, Dude. I know I'm overexposed, but I don't see an investment option that's even close. 18 months ago I had a diversified portfolio, and it wasn't doing jack. The realization that these stock were responsible for a huge part of the growth in the market led me to where I am. I feel like a gambler who won a good size pot and is now addicted. Triple digit returns has skewed my perception of what good is. I think my best option is to Update my lower sell limits orders again and sit tight.
