@the great dick tater @Omer (beercoozie) That ain't right that a potato is against ketchup. French Fries are the only thing ketchup is good on.

Time for some truth.


Mattingly looks better with a Magnum PI mustache, and he kind of looks like a gomer with it shaved. It is a problem and it a discount about 10% of his IQ points just because he doesn't look very smart. Although, half of that penalty is redacted when he is wearing his glasses.

We know the Dodgers wouldn't care two bits about saying sayonara to a position player if they could upgrade the position for cheap. I find it funny that getting rid of Mats is seen as some terrible preach of honor.

Help me out here. Didn't Mattingly manage under a one year contract last year and is a "free agent" right now?

@Tired Maths Cat @Disgruntled Goat @Subtle Euphemism aka Jonathan Lingo The only place I end up reading tabletized books is on planes. I get bored, end up buying a book online at the airport, and read it on the plane. I also always seem to be racing to download it in time before take off.

@Weston T @Subtle Euphemism aka Jonathan Lingo I have gotten mailing from both the dems and the repubs this week urging me to vote and promising to call to remind me on election day. I think they are confused

Random observation: If you like your sanity, do no live in Colorado/Denver during a hotly-contested election cycle. As a swing state, you are literally overrun by political ads.

The mustang was cool, but I was more afraid of your scenario than actually having any fun in it.

@the great dick tater @Subtle Euphemism aka Jonathan Lingo @cvrinc @Lobo My philoosphy is to go for the upper-level offering from a mass market company instead of the entry-level offering from a luxury brand. I'm open to being talked out of it, though.

@cvrinc @Lobo @Subtle Euphemism aka Jonathan Lingo That is always a gamble, but I figure the majority of guys who are renting are boring 40-somethings like me who are just trying to get all their customer calls done so they can get to the airport and go through airport hell as quickly as possible to get home.

@Turner_for_Treasury I like Gibson's books, but others did it better. Snow Crash is everyone's favorite, and I also really enjoyed Ready Player One that some people consider cyberpunk (I don't, really, but it is one of my favorite books of the last couple of years). One series that doesn't shop up on any "best of" lists that I love is the Signal to Noise series by Nylund.


John Wright wrote The Golden Age series that I loved that had a lot of cyberpunk elements to it, as well

Girl at work says, "Let me babysit your kids for you this weekend".

Mom says, " You sure? I don't think you want to do that."

Girl at work says, "It will be fun".

Girl at work comes to work the next week sick with a cold from before-mentioned children.

Half the office is now sick from Girl at work.


On a related note, Benadryl make me feel like I am floating in space. I keep expecting to see Clooney go zipping by in his space suit.
