While I agree for the most part in saying Cam was acting like a child, I am willing to cut him some slack, for now. Odds are at 26 he has only recently started encountering people who actully say "No." to him sometimes. It is likely his sense of entitlement isn't entirely his fault. Time will tell, but yeah for now -- he has a lot of learning to do.

I'm seriously considering ditching cable TV.
Yeah, I'm probably going to dump cable TV soon, probably for Dish. But I can't "cut the cable" totally, because Comcast is my only broadband choice. Actually, I would have done it sooner, except I'm in love with my ReplayTV DVR. But these days I'm worried it's about time for the drive to fail (again) and not sure I can even get a drive that would work any more. And having to watch live TV instead of a DVR might induce a suicide.

If you setup a Patreon page for $4.99 per month I would totally subscribe, then I wouldn't feel so bad disabling ads via AdBlock.

It is a bit of a pickle for the GOP. Clearly they don't want another Obama appointee to SCOTUS. But, if they spend months blocking an appointee in the Senate, it is possible the electorate will see this as them blocking the business of government. Possibly to the effect of giving the Senate back to the Dems. It will be interesting to see how things go...

Holy crap, just discovered that Justice Antonin Scalia was found dead.
Yeah, the resulting debate should be fairly amusing. Tried to get my buddy to bet me Scalia won't be replaced before the election, but he wouldn't bite.

Just in case you never studied history, New England ship and cannon builders started gorging on government contracts for warships and cannon several years before the war between the states officially started. They and Washington knew dam well what those ships were being built for. The slave issue was just a convenient premise.
Okay, I'll bite. What was the real reason for the US Civil War?

I like the idea of being a professional gamer as a retirement plan, too bad I know it isn't a reasonable one. Even making some money from Youtube videos would be cool. But the space is so crowded I find it difficult to believe I personally have what it takes. I know that I'm just not creative enough. Oh well, wishes and fishes...

I've seen a few Tesla sports cars here in NYC, they really turn heads - look like a pretty sweet ride. I hope they make it - the reviews seem really good.
Yeah, saw one here (a town of about 110k in the Midwest) and was a bit surprised. If I could afford it, I'd get one.

Designated driver? Drink less? If you want to live in BFE, there are pros and there are cons...

Yeah, I'd love to know much Peyton got paid for that. Dude, you already make a fortune, do you really need to shill at the Superbowl? And it's good to see Bud promoting rampant alcoholism in spite of their preachy bullshit ad with Helen Mirren. Sorry Helen, we're not all multi-millionaires who can take a limo everywhere or have access to public transit or even cabs.
I could agree his Bud plug was marginally classless. But I fail to see your point about not having the cash for a limo and no public transportation. Do those conditions somehow provide a shield for driving after drinking?

My prediction: Panthers by 14 after being up 28. As much as I would like to see Peyton win, I just can't see it happening. I hope I am totally wrong.
Never been happier to be totally wrong.

What are the stats on "active" FB users? Say, at least one a week? I could be believe 5 billion accounts by 2030, but I doubt 5 billion active users.

Being a proper curmudgeon I have never logged into Facebook or any other social media site, unless you want to count email.

Hmmm, I might suffer from RBF. I definitely do not smile much. I think I'll forward this to some friends and see if I qualify..

In my case, I'm afraid to ask.
Nah, even if I qualify I'll be amused by it. "I am what I am."
