  1. hopefully people will get creative with this
  2. Had a similar experience camping at Whitney Portal last year. For a month before we went my wife was in a panic about bears because of what she read online, I kept teasing her about it because, though I know there are bears all over these camp sites, it's not like you hear much about bear attacks. Anyway, first night, just after sunset, I'm a few whiskeys in around the campfire and my wife suddenly grabs my arm and a huge bear emerges out of the woods about 10 feet from us. And it just wandered right by me, sniffed the bear locker, then went on to the next site. By day 3 it was as scary as a loose dog.
  3. The man knows the bible inside and out, credit where credit's due. He's keenly aware he couldn't enter the church for the photo op due to Deuteronomy 23:1. No man whose testicles are crushed or whose male organ is cut off shall enter the assembly of the Lord.
  4. Crazy that he wrote These Days while a student at Sunny Hills. I went in the 90's and there was an English teacher still around who had him as a student.
  5. Though I thought the Pujols deal was bad business, as a fan I was ecstatic. Same with Hamilton. I figured with those two guys, we just needed it to come together for a season or two and we would easily make a deep playoff run, we'd end up with two bad contracts later but might be worth it. Shit was I wrong. I thought the Greinke trade was absolutely stupid.
  6. R0 of 2 does mean on average, each infected person will infect 2 more. What you are missing is the timing. It takes several days for the virus to build up in the body to the point where you are infectious, then several days to transmit to these other people etc. It doesn't double every day, I think in California the doubling rate was around 4 days.
  7. I lived in NH 20-25 years ago and Catamount was the local go-to. Guess technically it was in Vermont, but close in White River Junction. Back when there weren't a ton of microbrews around, especially in the middle of nowhere New England. Surprised they went tits up because they were legit, still have nostalgia for their amber, perfect.
  8. The PPP was worded so poorly that really the only condition to apply was having less than 500 employees. From their perspective, at worst it is a business loan with an insanely low 1% rate, at a time when capital is hard to come by, and at best it is deemed legitimate payroll expenses and is "forgiven" by the government. I don't think they envisioned when they applied that they'd be stealing it from real small business owners and the PR ramifications of it, but the banks stepped up big time for their largest clients and made sure they got paid first. 'murica.
  9. Have always respected the Buss family but gotta say, fuck them: https://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/29104444/lakers-got-money-loan-program-returned-it
  10. Yes yes yes. Balding, greying, I could care less, but the ear hair is demoralizing.
  11. You need to read the article before making a snap judgement. It's definitely less egregious than the Astro's, though I do smell some bullshit here. Cora is the ring leader in Houston but has no knowledge in Boston, no way. Why was the sign-stealer's office moved near the dugout, that was just random? But basically the whole Red Sox organization threw this one analyst under the bus. I'd expect him to come out to the press if he felt others were involved, but the article says it as his job to steal the signs (legally, not in real time), and he took it upon himself to update his info with the live feed.
  12. I don't care for the guilt by association. I'm about as liberal you can be but I think CNN is a shit stain on America. I'd agree if it said they were "DNC Media."
  13. I don't know, I think any news that comes out of China like this is terrifying. Mistakes happen, sure. But this is a country where infant milk producers were poisoning babies for a year and the biggest concern of the Chinese government was to kill any negative publicity around the Olympics. Any info that leaks out is just the tip of the iceberg.
  14. When I first saw the topic I assumed it was that self-righteous climate change girl from Sweden or whatever.
