Happy Good Friday to all who are celebrating. Though actually, most people I know celebrate most Fridays as being pretty good, so we probably have this pretty well covered.


Whaaaa? Guess it's not just me wishing...



It's like the old George Carlin throwaway... "Check his calendar."

So I got a bunch of Starbucks beans as they were on sale for $6/12oz, but these have different packaging. Upon closer inspection I've failed to discover any mention of the usual "bring this empty bag to Starbucks for a free cup of coffee."

Blue, ever since your story about the bunch of empty bags I've grown accustomed to shopping with a free coffee in hand (local grocery chain has Starbucks in it). If they say my empty bags are no good, I'm just gonna be fuurrriiiooouuussss.

Well, not furious, but mildly disappointed.

I saw the same thing... also, they have stopped including the sticker for their points program. I have to admit to saving these and not actually trying to redeem them yet, but it's still bugging me.

Blue, we so need the ignore function back.

It's not gone. Click on the user's name and select ignore this user.

And violating our ToS to complain about a ToS violation is a weird approach.

we have totally changed our name here to Pink's News

Glad this made a return this year. I've been missing it.


Shouldn't the page theme be in Pink now though as opposed to just the logo at the header?

I wondered that as well, esp with Blue's comment "You may have to force a browser refresh to see our elaborate makeover.".

The page itself is still blue here...


Forgot the sarcasm tag for "elaborate." I'm going to make a judgement call here and say the hysteria caused by a pink redesign would not make up for the headaches it would induce.

Hey Blue, are you still that skinny after eating all that meat?

Relatively... I'm about 10 lbs heavier now, which still makes pretty damned skinny.

So, uh, Blue. Still got the beard, or what? I pretty much sport the same look, but gettin' some gray in mine these days, so thinking about shaving it.

Actually have a full beard, but a shaved head now... funny you should ask, because I'm thinking of doing a full shave for spring.

Those were the days...I Still have my Quake tee shirt from the Quakeworld launch party in NYC. DR lost in an epic way to UA (which I still attribute to the lack of friendly fire being activated for the tourney--FOUL!)

Hey, at least your clan didn't get eliminated from the tourney without even getting to play!

Hey hey!


Awesome dog rescue dude.

Saw that one yesterday. Not sure why he couldn't just pick up the damn dog, instead of hauling it around by the scruff.


I was thinking that might be standard "don't get bitten by the dog you're rescuing" procedure. The dog didn't seem to mind at all.

Then I look it up and see it had been mentioned 6 times here over the years... Now 8.
Hahaha and I laugh every time I watch it.

Speaking of the Flintstones ... I don't think they have aged very well - to much sterotyping when it was not done as a joke.

Wasn't it aimed at adults originally, they even had the characters pushing cigarettes early on.

We watched an episode of the Flintstones with the smurfs years ago, and MrsBlue and I were shocked by how plot-heavy it was for a cartoon. The story involved like three layers of complex schemes the boys hatched to fool their wives about something... It was far more complicated than a lot of modern dramas. Hard to say who it was actually aimed at.

How does that work???? Did you have a good twin who posted the news for awhile? Edit: Like that Peter Parker clone thing?


Back in the day, Frans and loonyboi posted the unaccounted for stories (7,893 and 8,638 respectively).

I'd like to point out that this morning's Safety Dance is threadid 150,000. I think that means that Blue has posted more than 150,000 posts on Blues News. That is an incredible achievement, given that all the content is solely posted by Blue.

Congrats, Blue! Thanks for keeping us well informed all these long years.

Edited to add URL.

You are too kind. For the record, blammo's internal accountant tells me there are actually 149,387 stories as of now, 132,856 of which were posted by me.

Water is a very fast renewable resource. And if you live in the city it is collected, treated and reused faster yet. Love the scare tactic of "using too much water", it all gets back out of you and reused through the eco system. Exception is drought area's but most of the population of the US do not live in a drought area. But even those places if it's a city, it is controlled via water management.

Wondering if we will see any movement today.....Vikes made some big decisions yesterday, none of which seems like really good ideas....the curse continues....

Yeah, in your shoes I'd *hate* losing Allen... He's a rare talent, even at his age.

The G-men don't usually dabble in free agency, but our running back situation is uncertain enough that I wouldn't be surprised to see them take a flyer on Ben Tate or Knowshon Moreno.

You made decision to not move to California?

http://tinyurl.com/mmkgl5z


Yes we did. Shockingly, I know all about you and your love for your SoCal weather, so I guess I'll address that part of this.

Among other things, we actually have concerns about the viability of living on the fringe of a giant desert that satisfies the water needs of a huge population by diverting the already way-overstressed Colorado River. I am not very optimistic about the future of your area.

I'll see your link, and raise you one:

Blue, doesn't your wife work at disney interactive?

Formerly. We forewent the opportunity to relocate with her job to Glendale. I'd be lying if I said one of our concerns about that was something like what happened in this story.

Edit: Actually, MrsBlue corrects me that she never worked at Disney Intertactive, but rather at Disney Worldwide Publishing. The reasoning for not moving stands.

Egg creams. Oo la la. Aren't we hoity toity today. I have no idea what egg creams are but it sounds like something Thurston and Lovey would be sipping.

Hardly.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Egg_cream

An egg cream is a beverage consisting of milk, and soda water as well as vanilla or chocolate syrup, and is especially associated with Brooklyn, home of its alleged inventor, late 19th-century candy store owner Louis Auster. Most modern versions of the drink contain neither eggs nor cream.

The egg cream is almost exclusively a fountain drink. Although there have been several attempts to bottle it, none has been wholly successful, as its fresh taste and characteristic head require mixing of the ingredients just before drinking.
