Out of the Blue

Today is the day that Daylight Saving Time ended in these parts, so we did the whole "fall forward" dealie. As stated often in the past, I prefer daylight time to standard time, but the 25 hour day is awesome... I vote for finding a way to slow the Earth's rotation to make all days 25 hours long.

Haha, there is only one of my 5 wrong picks currently that all three of them didn't also get wrong.

My saving grace this week was picking Cleveland. Didn't have a specific reason to pick them other than I just thought they were playing better than Baltimore was.

You can see there picks? How?

It's the little images that appear over the team choices usually on Wednesday or Thursday.

I was so busy last week I didn't have much to do research or etc. I just figured I would trust the Insider picks and end up ok. Never again!

Same. *sigh I had some upsets picked....the wrong ones..... 4 wins. wow. Only 4 home teams lost yesterday.... I didn't pick all away teams, but I picked 3 of those 4 home teams. ugh.

Yeah the sad thing is that I would have lost even more if the Seahawks and Colts hadn't managed last minute miracles.

I was so busy last week I didn't have much to do research or etc. I just figured I would trust the Insider picks and end up ok. Never again!

Also my body woke up an hour early, not a great Monday morning

Oh come the fuck on, you gotta admit that's a pretty ridiculous thing to get pissy about.

Not interested, no one cares, don't infect OOTB.

No one's infecting anything, it was a dumb thing to get pissy at, nothing more nothing less. Relax.

Got hammered on my picks yesterday, so many upsets. I'll be lucky to be .500 this week

Typical Hollywood nonsense in that Slow Mo Guys video. Prop grenades with small explosions set off remotely, and gasoline-fueled fireballs on the side of a concrete structure... But then, I wouldn't expect any less from an EA-sponsored production. There's no way corporate marketing and liability agents would let real explosives anywhere near those guys.

OMG you're so right, those explosions aren't realistic enough! Quick lets hate on them because EA was involved marketing Battlefield 4!!!
Dear lord some of you really need to find better things to get pissy about.

I thought Chewsday was Guy Fawkes day. Renember, remember the 5th of November....


Good point. Perhaps the celebrations start at 23:59 on the 4th, as the plot was uncovered during the early hours of the 5th. I didn't know anywhere outside the UK cared, it must have followed the emigrates out there.

It amuses me that he's associated with anarchy. He was trying to bring in Catholic theocracy, about as un-anarchist as you can get.

Heck of a deal, I had the Colts. So, now I am either going to be 7-6 or 8-5.

Yeah, I hate weeks with a lot of home underdogs. Didn't feel confident at all going in. By far my worse week so far but I have a feeling I won't be alone.
My worst weeks so far were 3 and 5 when I was .500 (8-8, 7-7). If Houston's lead holds up, and Green Bay wins tomorrow, I'll go 7-6 this week. So, not quite my worst... yet.

Like that DST article and fully agree!
As I've said before, have everyone use GMT. Now, make a meeting appointment with someone on the other side of the world, and have no confusion over the time. Does it really matter if the time you are getting up is 7 am or 13 GMT, of course not. Sure it will be tougher on us "old" folks, but in 10-15 years there will be a generation who will find it quite natural and useful.
