Lucky.

Until you find out just how much geese poop.

Everywhere.

Actually I was already aware of this from my younger days at summer camp.

The geese here now are those who remain after what is apparently an annual "roundup" of them. I asked the guy who told me this if they relocated them or executed them after the roundup and his response was "don't know, don't care." It's hard for me to imagine they're so bothersome that I'd rather them be dead, but I'm pretty extreme in my desire to coexist with critters.

Well, I guess I'll believe you are going to move now...

I don't recall if you ever said, are you gaining or loosing square footage from the previous Blue Tower?

Technically almost exactly the same, except the old Blue Tower had basement space that doesn't qualify as reported square footage. Counting that we've lost about 500 or 600 square feet.
Did you use your basement for anything other than storage?

No, it was unfinished, and, until we discovered a foundation crack, it occasionally got wet down there. We fixed the crack, but continued to use it for storage only.

Pretty sure we don't need teh "Satire" heading. The titles are all self-evident. And if not, well, you deserve any ridicule you get from failing to comprehend parody.

I thought I didn't either, and then I got a complaint from a regular reader who was pretty irate over being "Onioned."

Will you fucking morons stop responding to no life basement dwelling trolls like Beamer already? Jesus, how many times do people have to say it. He must be related to Blue because Blue lets the little loser run wild and never lifts a finger to do anything about it. And then he seems utterly amazed when everyone else gets pissed off and the flaming begins.

Expressing opinions that differ from your own is not trolling.

You don't want me to start banning people based on user demands. The number one user who I get requests to ban is you.

Why was this question I asked removed?

The false equivalency of conflating homosexuality between consenting adults with illegal sexual assault needs to be explained to you? I'm sure there are some corners of the internet where other bigots will share your genuine curiosity and logical deductions. You should explore these burning questions in one of them.

Betting with the odds that a response is likely "you are low IQ" without a counter-argument, but maybe this will be a first!

Nope, I supplied a counter-argument. Further attempts to pursue whatever point you think you are making here will likely be deleted without further discussion.

I was pissed no new TES announcement. Hines seems to be doing his best to make sure it doesn't happen at all. Methinks it's way past time to get rid of him. The fact that he'd prioritize FO76 and all the other crap they're doing over a new TES shows he's the wrong man for the job.

Being mad at the head of marketing for a company's decisions is literally blaming the messenger.

I'm surprised by your last few updates, is this typical in your area? Normally I've always had a firm closing date on moves and that included our last house which we did as a private sale. I can't imagine trying to coordinate everything with a closing date that's just totally up in the air, its stressful enough without that nonsense.

Loads of "professionals" we're dealing with agree this is frustrating, but "normal" for the area. This comes from our real estate agent, to our mover, to our lawyer, to friends with experience in the field.

Apparently this is due in good part to New York being the worst state in the union to conduct such a transaction due to red tape.

My oldest step-daughter has a 25 pound, part Maine Coon, part house cat. When he wants part of dinner he sits on one of the dining room chairs like a human and waits until someone gets the hint.

Bacon and chicken are his favorites. If you go out for breakfast and eat bacon and then come home without some for him he gets all bent out of shape with you. I mean this cat takes his meat seriously. Wings and drumsticks, not a white meat sort of cat. We typically remove the bones but I have seen him lick the meat off of bones before. Are chicken bones really that bad for pets or is it one of those things that differs from animal to animal, pet to pet?


With smaller bones it's a choking hazard. With larger bones, if they can crack them, splinters from the bones could cause havoc in their digestive systems.

IIRC, that's only a problem if the bones are cooked? Should be okay if raw?

That is correct... The Gunnar man and Hudson the wonder dog each ate raw chicken wings their whole lives. Uncooked they just snap under a dogs bite, it's when they are cooked that they get more brittle and splinter.

They both well exceeded their life expectancies, and I'm sure their raw diet was a contibuting factor.

Oh, on an unrelated matter found out last night the 2019 WSOP is only being broadcast on CBS All Access/Poker GO. *sigh*

Is that right? Everything I'm seeing says ESPN still plans on broadcasting much of it, including nightly coverage of the main event.

Beamer wrote on May 22, 2019, 14:48:
Like De Niro, he just started phoning it in. De Niro, to me, hasn't done anyting worth a damn since Casino. He's had some character roles in good movies, but usually I find him still bad in them, and anything he stars in? Pacino went south much sooner, basically Hoo-Hahing everything after Scent of a Woman, but being near that spot a few years prior.

I completely agree about Pacino's decline kicking in for real after Scent of a Woman. Though he thankfully dialed it back for Donnie Brasco.

As for Tarantino, for the films he's directed, I think he's been all over the place. I really don't think all that highly of Pulp Fiction, I know, I know. Kill Bill is overrated and I disliked the second one. I hated Death Proof. But Inglorious Bastards is one of my favorite movies, and I love Jackie Brown and Django. Haven't done Hateful Eight yet.

I don't think I've ever heard anyone knock Pulp Fiction before. To me it clearly stands above all his other work as his magnum opus.

Tarantino anything is cinema gold, as far as I'm concerned. I'll definitely be there.

Generally true, but I didn't like The Hateful Eight.
Oh no? I really enjoyed it. It was certainly slower than his other movies, mostly taking place in one location, but for me, the lure of Tarantino films are the characters and brilliant writing/dialog. And I felt The Hateful Eight definitely delivered.

I don't mind slow pacing and generally can deal with limited locations. But this was presented as some sort of return to the grand old day of westerns, complete with the whole pretense of digging up and restoring Cinemascope projectors. All in order to present an indoor drawing room mystery. WTF? Why did that need to be Cinemascope... to take in more of the vista of a shack?

And the story was, for lack of a better word, horrible. The whole thing was an exercise in wasted potential and wasted talent.

That said, I'm disappointed in the casting of Al Pacino. Am I the only person who can't *stand* him? I never have, I think he's awful in everything and just drags down any movie he's in. I cannot fathom how he became so big/iconic.

Sounds like you've never seen the first two Godfather movies.

So Rage 2 physical sales are down? Why is that even news. ohhh because we are pretending Physical sales matter.

From the article:

Up to 50 per cent of UK console sales are now accounted for by digital, per research by GamesIndustry.biz - so, applying this generously to Rage 2, sales are only down on Rage 1 by half.

Sigh. That actress(Ruby?) is hot, but she also looks like she weighs about 90 pounds. At least get some woman who looks like she can physically kick somebody's ass. 150+ pounds, muscled, mean snarl on demand, etc.

That's just Hollywood. I mean, she looks like she could totally kick 1989 Michael Keaton's ass.
