Getting this thread sidetracked but I also bought some peach syrup at the local farmers market a week ago. Came from an orchard in NC, but I forget what it's called. It has a thin consistency. Figured it would go good on pancakes and stuff like cheesecake.

My favorite things to get at the market though are candied banana peppers and candied habaneros. Picked up 4 micro green tomato plants when I was last there, too. Have never messed with them, but they hardly grow any leaves, stay short, and when they produce tomatoes (normal sized grape tomatoes) it looks overloaded like bunches of grapes. They grow inside too

I don't eat much syrup at all even though I should since I'm spoiled with it. Every year my father in law gets us 2 gallons from up state NY for the holidays(only 18 dollars a gallon). Recently my wife actually bought some similar stuff from Publix: greenwise brand, a small bottle of real maple syrup. But only because we don't have enough damn room to fit the gallon jug in the fridge after we open it. I was flirting with the idea of harvesting the nuts from my hickory tree then jarring them smothered in maple syrup in several Mason jars. This is a common practice back in the 30's to 50's so I hear anyway and it's supposed to make a really good topping for desserts.

Yeah that's bullshit. The syrup definitely tastes better when it's made from blood, sweat, and tears in mammy Jemima's kitchen. Putting my foot down and only going log cabin from this point forward. I fully support the name change from Betty Cracker to Betty Crocker, though. I was losing sleep over that one.

Notre Dame actually plays a couple of good teams this year. Of course, they'll rate their schedule as #1 SoS probably overrating it but at least it's respectable. Clemson, Wisconsin, Stanford, wake Forest, Duke, Pittsburgh, USC, Louisville, and Stanford isn't bad. Left out Arkansas and ga Tech, but they're on there too, hopefully those 2 can improve. ND certainly has a schedule that allows them to potentially build a playoff resume (not that they need it, it just worked out that way this year).

North Carolina will have a start with back to back defining moments. They're starting out ranked, and they'll either exceed expectations beating both UCF and Auburn, meet expectations by beating UCF and losing to Auburn, or lose both and the ACC looks just as bad as last year. I think the 2nd: they'll beat UCF by a decent margin then lose to Auburn hopefully in a good game.

I saw a thread where people were discussing this picture:

.. And everyone was also giving their input on what they thought were there best upcoming matchups. In reality everyone was just naming their own team's biggest matchups and rivalry games haha. I took a look though at the schedule and noticed several that are intriguing, perhaps more exceptional than a normal season(some have already been mentioned):

Penn State @ Virginia Tech
North Dakota State @ Oregon
Oklahoma @ Army
Michigan @ Washington
Auburn vs North Carolina @ Atlanta
Virginia vs Georgia @ Atlanta
Tennessee @ Oklahoma

All of those are interesting at least, not all are the best but still decent teams.

The biggest matchups are Georgia Alabama, Penn State Ohio State, etc. but those 8 are pretty cool. Definitely better than Alabama USC and some others on that list lol. Then there's UCF vs Memphis; if they're both dominating their conference then sure, but Cincinnati and Houston are pretty much in the same boat to make a run.

At a 2nd glance Notre Dame vs Wisconsin and ole miss vs Baylor happen as well. There are probably a couple more good ones I missed.

I liked the Lord of the flies clip(among other things). I almost mentioned it, and came back to do so when I saw this:


This book probably isn't required reading in school anymore, else they'd see the similarities.

Lately I've been questioning my trump is going to win marginally theory with everything that's been happening lately. Divisive race rhetoric is very powerful. I think it's likely for whites to have the biggest showing ever, but are we going to see a spike in African American turnout as well (especially relative to 2016)?

Probably so, but it's a little less predictable. I think it's possible for blacks to be torn on everything and possibly have a lesser turnout. Trump is a racist, trump set records with black unemployment numbers, you ain't black if you don't vote for Biden, protest craziness, left craziness, right is racist, left failing to help black communities, etc. I think there's plenty of feelings and notions to be torn on. But, I think it's also possible to see Obama-like turn out or greater. Are we going to see a combination of the two?  :exqueezeme:

Haha that's pretty good. Everyone in the comments is mesmerized by the uncooked ramen, but I frequently saw that in college. The delivery and mispronouncing COMO's name is what makes it.

I found it a couple days ago browsing this one guy's Facebook and Twitter. There's an extremely hard right, or alt right, or both (who the fuck knows these days) professor that's under a lot of fire from the University I attended years ago that's also 10 minutes from my house. Google Mike Adams, he's been making national news and is getting put on blast by celebrities. I actually think I took one of his classes in 2006, but I'm not 100% positive and didn't verify.

He's making quite the stink though. Has a history of winning lawsuits against the University due to free speech, and recently referenced NC as a slave state and called our governor "Massa Cooper" in a tweet.

Edit: he's also a columnist for the daily wire.

Damn! I completely missed that. There was a several day period where I was not as VERY active like I usually am posting around here. Went right over that damn one  :dohdohdoh:

I agree. It's just so, so, so very fucking stupid. The gall that the media and political leaders have is remarkable. Putting "health experts" say no gatherings of people but protesting is fine in the same sentence. Holy fuck. Race is such a powerful tool for them. Yeah, it'll take aliens.
