Warriors is pretty generic IMO.
I agree. They should go with something unexpected. I seriously doubt they will. I believe there has already been a leak suggesting they want something which could be interpreted as either military forces or warring natives. But hey .. who knows?

Washington Lobbyists?
Washington Filibusters?
Considering the way they've been playing the last few years, my vote would be for the Washington Generals*.

So, $114K for a 1985 video game... wow.

Holy hell, way to go to whoever sold the thing. I wonder if the buyer thinks it's a good investment or if he just wanted the game that bad.

Not that it really has anything to do with anything, but the thought that first popped into my head was that in 1989 I bought a house for $33K and lived there for 28 years. I guess the value of stuff, or the perceived value of stuff, is sometimes pretty strange.

Those poor dogs look terrified. I wonder how many beatings they've had to endure so that woman could get her 15 minutes of fame?

So you're accusing some random stranger of animal cruelty because her dog can do a cute trick? Okay.

Jesus Blue, how can post such things! I thought you liked dogs.

I thought the dogs looked terrified of not getting a treat (like every dog).

They had me wait in the car until they were ready for me to avoid patients clustered in the waiting room. They took my temperature on the way in, had air filters in every room, and even had me gargle with anti-viral mouthwash. The thing I hate most about going to the doctor is feeling like I'm going to get sick from the other patients, but this alleviated such concerns to an extreme degree.

Doctor / hospital waiting rooms should be optional from now on. Check in via text, "I'm here, waiting in the parking lot" - maybe they send you a form that's configured so you can fill it in on your phone if necessary, and then they let you know when to walk in. It's like you said, whether it's Covid19 or the flu, waiting rooms are scary.

Is it me, or is the a blatant copy of the AvE channel?

I love the AvE channel! This is the first video I ever watched from the guy - https://youtu.be/BHiUautKMO0. I don't remember how I first found it (maybe from here?), but damn it's funny.

I don't know, I can't say you're wrong about this being a blatant copy - the format is obviously very close to the same, but as long as this guy doesn't try to be as funny as the AvE guy, it doesn't feel the same. AvE has some cool shit on it, but I mostly watch it for the humor. Hell, maybe the "POV Handyman" genre, or whatever you'd call it, has hundreds of different channels anyway.

That reminds me, I really want a couple of the AvE t-shirts.

Back when I was 13 or 14, my third arm could too - but it was very uncontrollable.

I hate anime with very few exceptions. I find it boring and childish. Someone recommended "Cowboy Bebop" to me because I do love "Firefly". I hated it. It has the same problem that every anime has and that is there is a decided lack of subtlety and inherent nuance. Everything has to be a caricature taken to the most extreme level.

I've never seen the appeal of anime either, although I can't say I've given it much of a chance. I did kind of like the little bit of "One Punch Man" I watched and "Attack on Titan" looked interesting.

I just can't get past the over-the-top english overdubbing.

I did watch and enjoy whole lot of "Speed Racer" when I was a kid though!

MrsBlue asked why they were giving it away and I said sometimes you get to the point when you realize you are just using it as a clothes rack.

Yeah, but now they have to go out and buy themselves a new clothes rack.

*meh* As a 17 year old, the Mount St. Helens eruption was mildly interesting but it certainly never felt apocalyptic. At least as long as you were a state or more away from it. We did learn some cool stuff from it though.

I was also a 17 year old, living in my home town of Richland, Washington, and I didn't see it as "apocalyptic" either. I mostly remember the weird clouds of ash coming down, although most of the worst of the ash missed us to the north. My mom remembers hearing the "boom" but I don't remember that. I did take some good pictures of the ash clouds that I've never found.

Probably crazy, but I have to believe that you don't spend that kind of money on something like sneakers unless you're confident they'll go up in price. Right? Although the whole thing was almost certainly inflated by the the 10hr. ESPN documentary about Jordan and the Bulls called "The Last Dance", which wrapped up last night.

Speaking of which, I was only mildly interested in watching the documentary, but I have to say it's been fantastic (at least the first eight episodes were, I'll watch the last two tonight). I'm very surprised by how much I'm enjoying it. Over the last ten years I've been leaning towards LeBron over Jordan because of his strength and how he shares the ball, but man, I had forgotten the jaw-dropping stuff Jordan could do and it's been fun to watch.

Interesting. I've never dealt with propane. I'm guessing the same is true for the large tanks used to supply homes outside the city utility zone,

I've got a good propane story...

Back in the early eighties I was working swing-shift as a pipefitter apprentice on a nuclear reactor construction site (in the Hanford area, Washington State). One day my foreman tells me that I'd been "volunteered" to be on the fire brigade, or fire watch, or whatever it was called, which basically meant I would have to go to a meeting every month and show up to help fight any fires that occurred (which, up to that point had never happened). Of course within a few days, and before I'd been to a single meeting, a medium size pole building that was being used as a shop for the insulators or painters was on fire and all fire brigade members were called out to fight the fire. So I mosey on out in the dark, not knowing where to go, what to do, or for that matter, any of the other people I'm supposed to be meeting with. Turns out it's not hard to find a burning building at night.

Once I got there the building was burning pretty good and there were a bunch of guys inside on a hose trying to put the thing out. Most of the people outside were yelling to get those guys out of there and I agreed completely especially since the roof had caught fire. But you'd think those guys were putting out their own house because they weren't giving up. Then, suddenly, WHOOOOOOOOOOOOSSSHHHHHH - followed by a chorus of "HOLY SHIT"! Right next to the building a column of flame shoots out of the ground at least 30 feet high and night turns to day. It turns out that there was a big propane tank buried in the ground next to the building and the pop-off valve had finally let go.

That got those guys out of the building.

Did it come with a tank gauge? I got a Weber Spirit II - in Ivory which looks quite nice - and it's a good little grill but didn't come with a tank gauge, which is pretty cheap on Weber's part. Need to pick one up. They're $20 on Amazon.


That's a good tip. Though since it seems like the ultimate nightmare of gas grilling is running out of gas, so I was thinking I'd eventually pick up a spare tank.

I'm not so sure how well these tank gauges work - that is if we're talking about the in-line pressure type gauges. I quit using mine because it seemed like as soon as I noticed that the gauge wasn't in the green, the tank was a few minutes away from quitting. I don't definitely know how this works, and I'm too lazy to look it up, but I don't think a tank's pressure changes much as it empties. If it did, you'd constantly have to adjust where you set the regulator valves as the tank goes down.

That being said, they do work if you catch them at the right time. Like if you see it in the yellow after you're done cooking you'll know to fill the tank before using it again. But, if it goes yellow in the middle of cooking something you may end up finishing up in your oven. That why, like you said, having a spare tank is the way to go.


Edit: Okay, I looked it up... https://www.hunker.com/12000128/why-propane-tanks-do-not-have-pressure-gauges

Can't believe the Packers traded up and for Jordan Love? That's hands down the worst pick of the draft.

Yeah, the Packers are one game away from the Superbowl and they draft for the future? Not to mention they trade up to do it? It seems to me that the Packers are a stud receiver and maybe a couple run-stoppers away from being the top Superbowl favorite (not that they're not close now).

Who knows, maybe he'll turn out to be great, but as a Seahawk fan, I'm loving the pick right now.

Yeah, I was really counting on teams trading up to grab QB's.

Speaking of the draft, a couple days ago I turn on the TV and there's a rebroadcast of the 2014 draft. It wasn't something I was that interested in except that the Raiders were on the clock and John Gruden was one of the main analysts. So I was interested in what he was going to say about the Khalil Mack pick (who Gruden famously traded away to much criticism). It turned out that Gruden pretty much went off on how over-rated Mack was. The funny thing was that instead of Mack, Gruden thought the Raiders, and pretty much every other team, were making a huge mistake by not drafting Johnny "Football" Manziel.

The idea is that the high level dispersion of emissions from planes actually blocks/reflects the sun's energy. So if all the planes stopped flying, measurable ground temperatures increased.


So in other words, clean air causes global warming! Got it.

In that case why do you insist on constantly downplaying this with comparisons to the flu? Just stop already.

I know most people comparing CV19 to the flu are doing it to downplay CV19, which I agree is a dangerous mistake, but I kind of think of the comparison differently - not so much to downplay CV19, but as a reminder of how bad the flu can be. Having a bad flu is brutal.
