It's that time, and I actually get to watch some games today. Downtime at work for the first time on this rotation so I'll leave here at about lunch time.

Florida is better, but Miami has great athleticism as usual. Combine that with it being a semi-rivalry game, everyone's fresh, and first game jitters it'll probably be a close one. Rooting for Miami to help the ACC's strength of schedule.

Only other game today is Arizona Hawaii.

Oh damn. I just saw the game is at 7pm. Now I'll be pretty bored this afternoon.

A big thanks to Rivera for taking the preseason game against the pats seriously playing every starter and Cam Newton walking out of the stadium in a boot. :raincloud:

« on: February 12, 2019, 07:35:03 PM »
There's a shit ton of omaha-steak-like companies now. After browsing around it appears this one is the best:

But damn are they expensive. APPARENTLY Omaha has improved over the years also. They also don't break the bank. The last time I thought about them it was just "omaha" everything. Now there's grass fed, prime, private select, wagyu, whatever. Do any of y'all have any experience with the quality of the newer stuff from them? I already know about the stupid prices. 50% off is actually the normal price, so really you need it to be close to 80% off + free shipping to get any kind of deal from them. But does it taste any good? February is when you can get the biggest discount.

The Chris Farley and Adam Sandler era was silly and hilarious. I recall the skits showing George W and Gore debate, and Biden and Palin. I remember those being funny as heck. The bill Clinton impersonations were funny. But their Trump skits just suck. Is it just me? I actually laugh at him all the time. How and the hell is it funnier to watch HIM than a comedic skit of him!?  :lolsign:

Maybe it is just me. I just feel that if the script was a tad more clever and funny they could roast Trump big time. Instead it's like they're trying to goad him into tweeting something stupid. Maybe it's because alec Baldwin sucks too.

 I am so sick of this being in our news headlines. Damn it.

The right portrays him as a saint that has done no wrong ever, and the left portrays him as a no good rapist.

Since you think this guy is such a scum bag do you feel all of his decisions as an appeals court judge should be revoked? If he's not fit to be on the supreme court he's not fit for the appeals court.. Right?

Doesn't look good. Eye is still set to go over my house at cat 4. Literally dead center on the track.  :raincloud:

Outdoor Activities / Fire ants
« on: May 11, 2018, 08:25:26 PM »
I don't even know where to begin.... They suck. I've had some bad luck with them recently. I got eaten alive in Florida. Two months ago and I still have purple scars. I took a leak on their mound and they took it the wrong way. All over my feet and ankles. For those of you unfamiliar with fire ants there's different kinds but a common theme is dark red inflammation and a puss filled white head. With lots of initial pain then itching afterward.

Then I come home to southern NC(I grew up on an island where we DONT HAVE FUCKING FIRE ANTS) and I see these fucking mounds around these oak logs I cut up a few months ago. I see ants but think nothing of it. Ants are all little pricks, but only fire ants are massive cunts. I had only experienced fire ants in Florida and Georgia. Georgia they're HUGE, but these are the worst I've seen. I'm taking a chain saw to 2-3 ft diameter logs then I suddenly realize that this shit is so ant infested that the chain rewinding is literally flinging ants at me. I look down and I'm covered. Apparently fire ants don't like getting chainsawed, I got bit 50 times or so. The dozen bites on my ankle made it swell up so much it looked like I broke it. And speaking of broke, I can broke my toe the other day. Can't get a fucking break with my feet.

I'm really mad at this point. I set large portions of my yard on fire with gasoline. After saturating areas with gas, I walked around with a blow torch in one hand and a beer in the other delivering justice on these bastards.

I don't like fast food in general. But, what is your favorite? For me its Publix subs, jersey mikes, chick fil A, and cookout.

I see these so much and somehow everyone seems to get them wrong. What's your answer?

/dev/random / NCAA March Madness Basketball Thread 2018
« on: March 09, 2018, 04:19:32 PM »
Yeah, I've been making these threads for awhile. And yeah, I know I'm way more into it than y'all. I watch football more than anything, but growing up in NC you are either Carolina or Duke so I watch college basketball too. Tonight at 9pm EST North Carolina plays Duke in the semi-finals of the ACC championship. They are 1-1 in the regular season both teams winning at home. I'd tune in if I were you. You might see blood, ejections, etc. It's always a close game. During Roy Williams' time at UNC and K at Duke the total point margin is in favor of duke by 20some points. It means that Duke on average outscores Carolina by a fraction of a point. These schools 8 miles apart collectively have a more successful resume than any other conference. This is why us North Carolinians watch this shit. The Ohio state Michigan rivalry can kiss my ass. Frazier VS Ali and Arnold Palmer v Jack Nicklaus were something special decades ago, but those rivalries were 1 on 1. UNC vs Duke takes the cake folks. ESPN @ 9pm.

The SEC has always been about kentucky in basketball but they've had an off year. Then you'd mention Florida. Tennessee USED to be known for basketball but has been off the radar for over a decade now. And most recently Arkansas and South Carolina have been pretty good. But, this season Auburn is the top team in the SEC :WTF: And to top it all off they just lost to low-seeded Alabama by over 20 in the SEC tournament. :lolsign:

/dev/random / Last meal
« on: November 09, 2017, 05:20:47 PM »
If I was on death row and had a last meal request it'd go something like this.

Fried oysters
Fried monkfish chunks
Fresh yellowfin tuna raw or barely seared
Fresh seafood in general
Leg of lamb cooked over a rotisserie
Skirt steak flash seared medium rare

I'd be happy with even 2 of those.

/dev/random / NCAA Basketball March Madness Thread
« on: March 12, 2017, 07:58:42 AM »
Yes, it's that time of the year. You know, the time of the year I make a thread about this even though I'm the only one that gives a damn about college basketball. UNC is obviously in and projected as one of the four #1 seeds for the tournament. At worst they will be the highest 2 seed. For the two other college sports followers(although mainly football): Florida will be a 4 seed. Georgia is on the bubble to be invited. More than likely they will and snag a 13 seed.

In my opinion these are the best teams in the country: Kansas, North Carolina, UCLA, Duke, Louisville, Kentucky, and Villanova. Gonzaga, Arizona, Oregon and others are overrated. Look for a LOT of upsets this year.

A little early but it's almost that time. I'm excited as a unc fan and just in general. There's some really good match ups for week 1.

Wisconsin v LSU @ lambeau field
UNC v Georgia @ Georgia dome
USC v Alabama @ AT&T Stadium
Clemson @ Auburn
Oklahoma @ Houston
Ole Miss @ Florida State

All are an interesting contrast in match ups , home/away, and "neutral" sites ;) .

/dev/random / NCAA Basketball tournament
« on: March 16, 2016, 11:25:33 PM »
March Madness is upon us again. In case you're knew to it, they call it march madness for a reason: college basketball is already more unpredictable than college football or other sports, but during the NCAA tournament it's ridiculously unpredictable. There's just as many massive upsets than not. It's both unappealing, appealing, and entertaining, hence the madness.

You can make 10 free brackets per person on with their bracket challenge. You have a chance of winning millions or other sub category prizes(50k, 100k, etc).

It's like 10 free power ball tickets, have unc, Kansas, Virginia, mich state going far and pick your upsets. Kentucky, duke, seton hall, Cincinnati, Syracuse, and Iona are all seeded 4 or less. All of them are good picks to do well. Oregon is the weakest top seed.

The school I went to hasn't been to the big tournament since my freshman year 11 years ago until now. It's the first game of the day. UNCW v. Duke at 12:15pm ET. Obviously duke is a good basketball school so it's a chance to make history.
