Out of the Blue

Happy World Usability Day! Thanks Morris, who resends a related video that was posted here earlier this year: How to open a door - Finnish instructional video from 1979.

The storm ended overnight and I managed to get the walk shoveled and a car dug out, so things are fine here, and are all set for the next storm. I think that's due in around a week, but in the meantime, they say temperatures should be in the 60s over the weekend, just to keep us off guard. One can only hope those displaced or without power from Sandy were able to get through this okay.

And it's football Thursday, and for the reader who chided me for not commenting on the Giants loss on Monday, I'm trying to isolate my NFL talk here to the one little blurb a week. So for the record, yes, the Giants lost, and no, I didn't enjoy it. Last week our experts' expertise was in full display, as the results were pretty cooperative with our picks. The outcome was Cutter and Jivaro (12-2); Blue, Creston, and Batman (11-3); mag and Verno (10-4), and Rigs (8-6). No time to rest on our laurels (no matter how comfortable they are), here goes for this week: Colts, Buccaneers, Dolphins, Patriots, Ravens, Broncos, Giants, Lions, Saints, Seahawks, Cowboys, 49ers, Texans, and Steelers.

Proper Opossum Dental Care.

God sometimes I love random shit on Youtube. This woman is so weird! She has whole series of vids about opossum care and some of her comments are funny as hell.

Someone comments....

"I like to bust opossum's teeth with a 12 gauge."

she replies...

"which explains the increasing popularity of&#65279; cosmetic dentistry in the opossum community."

Ahahahaha!

So ya, the officiating in the Giants/Steelers game. Normally you expect a few bad calls going both ways, but that was something I've never witnessed in all my years watching the NFL. Ugly.

Agreed, it was pretty bad. Glad the Steelers pulled it out in the end. Classic Steelers to not allow the refs to dictate the game.

Probably for the best.

Yeah, that's one of those one-off movies that's a classic, but never needs a sequel. (Or a reboot.)

Stupid Giants losing to the stupid Steelers. *grumble mumble* I should have had a perfect week! Oh well, I'm on fire with my picks from last week and my call on the electoral college. And *BOOM* goes the dynamite.

This week is going to be tougher to call, but much like Kool and the Gang, let's get down on it...

Colts, Lions, Falcons, Giants, Ravens, Pats, Dolphins, Chargers, Broncos, Seahawks, Eagles, Bears, Steelers.

LOL. I think the Jets' secondary already tried that one.


The Jets too...also really disappointing. Even with Revis out though, I think the Jets biggest problem is the offense. The Jets defense spends more time on the field then any other defense in the league. That is not a statistic you want to be first in. The offense had (might still have) the most '3 and outs' of any team in the league. Another stat you really don't want to be #1 in.

Tough to win like that, no matter how good your defense may or may not be.

I went against my gut a couple of times. Picking ATL over NO despite the game being in New Orleans would have seemed brain dead last year. Same with the Philly/Dallas game in Philly. Problem is that after watching NO and Philly, I am not at all convinced that they can beat mediocre teams (let alone good ones)...even at home. Philly would have a better offensive line if they started the local girl scouts and New Orleans would have a better defense if they used cardboard cut-outs shaped like football players and moved around by chimpanzees. Any given Sunday..blah blah blah...but talk about two really disappointing teams.
