  1. I think on the whole, Eppler gets an A or A- for his trades. Other than Simmons, he hasn’t made any huge moves, so perhaps he hasn’t taken much risk, But I think has made some great trades (La Stella, Upton, Pena, Simmons, Sandoval) and nothing has really bit him in the ass yet.
  2. They need to stop making the low alcohol IPA, like the session shit. Totally fucking pointless.
  3. Guys, please record the fight/hugging session and post it on here.
  4. TORS, are we allowed to leave the house, or are you guys going to start arresting us? I just read an article about a paddle boarder out in the ocean who got arrested. Am I gonna get cuffed for running the track at Chapman?
  5. I am debating whether to build a wood deck in my backyard. Upside is that it would let me use my yard, save money, and look good. Downside is I have never built anything like it before. But from YouTube videos, it looks achievable.
  6. Leading up to this, I had been doing incredibly well with diet and exercise. I got my weight to a point it hasn’t been at in 7 or 8 years. But I have been kind of lazy the last two weeks, haven’t exercised nearly as much, and haven’t been strict with my diet. I gotta get back into the pre COVID routine, which I think is going to require the same type of daily structure that I had when going to the gym and then office each day. I think getting dressed each day is absolutely critical. I eat healthier wearing clothes than sitting around in a bathrobe. And I am trying to get some exercise bands for my home gym, but like Cat said I think it will take a month to get them.
  7. Trump defenders will first make excuses about how it didn’t really happen that way, and then when completely boxed into a corner, will cry “fake news.” It’s the only play in their book.
  8. Odd that Trump is discarding Michigan. It’s pretty critical to his re-election chances. You would think he would be prioritizing them.
  9. As do I. The shakes, on the other hand, leave a lot to be desired. Of course, nobody matches Chic-fil-A’s shakes.
  10. I am fortunate in that I have a good job, good job security, the ability to do my job from home without any real disruption, and a nice home office. But this virus is going to destroy my bonus for next year. I am guessing it will wipe it out completely, mostly because I anticipate clients will substantially delay payment to us. I am not complaining because I am better off than most others, but it sucks nonetheless.
  11. If life returns to 80 percent normal in the next 6 to 8 weeks, I think the economy rebounds quickly - perhaps things are mostly normal after 6 to 9 months. I am guessing the Dow will be at least 20,000 one year from now. So if you can buy at 14,000, you will make a good return.
  12. I’d be shocked if it ended up anywhere near 14,000. I’d also be inclined to invest every extra dollar I have if it did, because it will be short lived.
  13. Exactly. Yet the right will blame Pelosi for this, as always.
  14. Really? Why is there a massive shortage of PPE and he is seemingly taking no action to address it?
  15. I think this is a fantastic idea, with the potential to evolve into the biggest shit show ever (making it even more epic). Please provide me with details. And it must be scheduled for a time when @calscuf is a few drinks in already. Like 8:30 p.m. or so.
  16. I consider myself anti-gun, but there have been many times during which I felt I’d like to have one. I definitely feel more strongly about that right now.
  17. Update: the law congress passed effectively requires small businesses (under 500 employees) to pay out huge benefits to employees who qualify as sick or eligible for special COVID Family and Medical Leave. The Givernment will eventually refund employers, but only through a payroll tax credit that could take many months (or years) to get back the benefits paid out. And employers have no revenue coming in. All of this means that the only way employers can keep their employees on the books is if (1) they have a lot of cash in the bank to pay out these benefits, and (2) they believe they will survive this and stay in business long enough to get reimbursed by the government. Few businesses satisfy both of these. As a result, they are terminating employees instead of furloughing them or reducing their hours substantially. In other words, the very law the government passed in a supposed effort to help employees is actually resulting in their terminations. Our government at its finest, folks.
  18. 80,000 unemployment claims were filed with California’s EDD today. A typical day is 2,000.
  19. Yeah, you caught me. Definitely had a few last night.
  20. Plus, for the life of me, I still haven’t figured out how you get drunk of Coors Light. Nobody properly gives you credit for that.
  21. When your constantly inebriated, your inebriated state is just what is expected of a normal person.
  22. Abnormal growth in the dong region.
  23. Sorry for your loss Don. BTW, this is an extremely well written post for anyone, let alone someone who is intoxicated. Props on your proof reading skills.
