after eight summers in florida and borderline obsessively watching the tropics it is quite relieving to watch and track hurricane Ian from afar
Hope everyone down there has completed their prep. I don't think it'll be catastrophic for most but that doesn't mean it couldn't be a handful of unpleasant days waiting for the power to come back
God damnit, fucking Cowboys won, so my mom lost her pool. Oh well, they thought she'd suck because she's not a football fan, and going into MNF tied had everyone sweating.
If I had only believed in the Bears....
Day three of having Covid and if anything I’ve gotten worse.
Ugh, this shit sucks.
That's awful, hope you have a fast & strong recovery
I have a thing where, not on purpose or anything, I often watch popular shows REAL late. I still haven't gotten around to some of the most loved shows ever, but fully plan to soon enough.
I'm also the most spoiler-avoidant person you could imagine...but I can't blame anyone for spoiling something that happened *years* ago that I'm only just now in the middle of, so it's like I'm terrified all the time that someone is gonna say something about a show I'm way behind on and it's not their fault, hah.
Example: I just finished the first episode of Barry a few moments ago and holy shit I fucking love it, I'm so excited to continue.
Another example: the other day I *just* finished the FIRST season of Stranger Things. Hard to tell anyone to keep the last 3-4 years spoiler free for me! Them kids is obviously grown by now and here I am like "uhh don't talk about anything since 2017 to me pls thx lol"
Feel awful for Sterling Shepard
This korean restaurant offers a cheese monster fried chicken meal.

i want to know what this means
Just realized now that Dallas is nowhere near the rest of the NfC east geographically.
It’s not even east Texas
So the last in Brett Favre? Slavery. He wanted to use prisoners forced to be there with no choice for his hard manual labor project to keep costs down. Yes, they get paid but like 20 cents an hour. That they can only spend in one location they cannot leave. Slaves got a bed and food, they were still slaves.
I guess the sub has his name banned because they filtered out the article I posted.
Win or lose I'm eating my weight in egg rolls and duck sauce tonight
enjoy the binge
One thing that really needs to change is how the US names its electoral districts. I think it should be the same way that Canada and the UK do it because those tell you exactly where the district is and what's in it
Example of Canadian electoral districts: Winnipeg South Centre, Halifax West, Niagra Falls
Example of UK electoral districts: North West Somerset, North Norfolk, Coventry South
Example of US electoral districts: NY-13, GA-1
Do you see the problem? HOW THE HELL AM I SUPPOSED TO KNOW WHAT'S IN "GA-1"!?
You should look into gerrymandering and what an ugly and pervasive thing it is in the US. I assume it happens elsewhere too, but man, it's sick.
Won't work because they redistrict like every year. To gerrymander. Let's fix that first, then that.
Literally just make them all squares.
Iowa counties have entered the chat
If Brady gets divorced, what’s the over/under of the age of his next girlfriend? I’ll set it at 24 1/2 years old.
Why do you think he stared in that Jane Fonda Lilly Tomlin movie? He likes em older now.
He's gonna watch the movie the graduate and then marry a 51 year old. All quarterbacks seem to be incredibly open to believing bizarre shit they heard from weird places so I think this is a safe bet
30-35 but an A list model or actress who looks to be around the age you're saying still.
Wish I had binoculars. It's insane that Jupiter's bands & moons are visible
I kept bringing up my concerns about our public service desks (long story short, extremely poor ergonomics) at work. Kept getting the runaround/being assured they were working on removing the one element of it that wasn't actually a problem. Filed an OH&S complaint. Some inspector supposedly came and said it was fine, which is absolute bullshit when I have literal memos from the staff network advising us to avoid those specific seating issues to prevent injury. Was also told that upper management isn't really "interested" in buying more furniture. This was all relayed to me verbally by a very nervous supervisor.
Oh I'm sorry. You're not "interested" in staff safety, are you? Well you're all getting a summary email of this conversation and then the union is getting notified, while I will be refusing unsafe work and encouraging my coworkers to do so. You lazy fucks don't even need to spend a cent - just give us those fancy ergonomic office desks and chairs from your corner offices, you're welcome to these decrepit sawed-off boxes from the 80's and a couple of bar stools. Easy-peasy, $0 spent!
Bought a 7 Eleven Big Bite. The bottom of the case has a number to call to get your own franchise. Guys, people eating Big Bites don't have the money to own a 7 Eleven.
I swear to god espn better not try any funny shit during MNF with these judge cut ins
oh t hey'll cut in, they did it last Monday for the MNF games
i would hope they learn their lesson and listen to the fans but they probably wont
It was bad on Saturday during college football. Can we file an FCC complaint on this if they do it again tonight?
I love the Yankees but come on, enough is enough
I wonder if Dorsey has any self reelection from completely losing his shit like that. It’s funny and you can say it shows his passion, and I think that’s fine, but that dude also clearly had massive anger issues and I’m sure despite his success he’s has struggles. Lots of people in the NFL are hyper competitive assholes, but this was a pretty significant temper tantrum.
He addresses it [here](https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/34672168/buffalo-bills-oc-ken-dorsey-says-learn-meltdown-coaching-box)
He did get a little hot under the collar there
NASA using DART to distract all the telescopes on Earth to point at one area of the sky, so they can sneak the aliens by without anyone seeing it.
Hey what do you prefer pancakes or waffles? Love them both! It is National or International Pancakes Day!
Pancakes > French Toast > Waffles
All three are absolutely wonderful and delicious, but if I had to rank 'em waffles are a *distant* third.
Waffles because chicken and waffles. But pancakes are amazing also
If you're buying frozen stuff for later, pancakes take it.
Good waffles over good pancakes. Bad pancakes over bad waffles.
Agree. However, I'd place cold pancakes under cold waffles.
waffles. love the nooks and crannies
Especially as I’ve grown older.
no wonder most cars don't have "speed holes".
"they make the car go faster."

Thank you! I forgot
I almost did! Thank goodness for YouTube notifications.
There’s actual people out there that rate Cousins more than Allen based on a few excel cells.
Man over under on tonight's game is 38.5. as an Eagles fan I'm hoping it's like way under. Like a 2-3 final score.
Is it normal to just be a Tom Brady fan and that's it?
Only if your team isn't in the AFC East. Even then, I've softened to him since he left.
Like this person has no team. He just like only Tom Brady and that it.
Eh, you wouldn't feel that way if he spent two and a half decades embarrassing you. He's my bully and he doesn't even know my name.
*overheard on the subway*
Stranger: ugh my date was a total dork
Stranger #2: why
Stranger: because he wouldn't stop doing an Elvis impersonation after watching the movie Saturday night
My brain: *wise man say...*
My first day of not being an unemployed waste in a while. Feels good to contribute to society again.
lol its always funny when you hurt someone's feefees and they downvote every comment you've made for a bit.
You mad bro? ☹️
Just started watching the Blind Side (loved the book btw) and holy shit what have they done to Michael Oher? I know he looked old as a teenager, but this actor doesnt look old, he looks *old*, like a 40 year old dude pretending to be a high schooler
edit: the puppy dog pout he's doing constantly is also dumb as fuck
Apparently the actor was 25 when the movie came out.
I just want to watch this team win one Super Bowl before I die. Literally just one and I’ll be happy.
Honestly I felt the same way and I got my wish granted but I still went back to my depressed self though.
I don’t know man. Warriors and SFGiants can post losing seasons for the rest of my life and I won’t care because I’ll still be riding the high of those dynasties.
Well one super bowl win isn't a dynasty but I guess for me, I just have a lot of personal emotional issues outside of sports. Of course your team winning the championships is cool though.
Vampire Diaries is good and I will die on that hill
I love it. Only show I know that would do what would normally be season long arcs and do it in like 4 episodes instead and actually pull it off. You'd end somewhere completely different than the season began.
Elena and Caroline is so hot.
The White House welcomed the champion Atlanta Braves today and kindly suggested they change their name.
I hope R-words and Indians are the last two pillars to be toppled due to political correctness. There is no reason you could tell me why Braves, Blackhawks, or even Chiefs should have a name change. Are those slurs, intended as pejorative commentary at a person? Hey, you BRAVE! Yeah you heard me...you BRAVE. "Why, thank you!"
> Are those slurs, intended as pejorative commentary at a person?
That's...not even the conversation anymore lmao
I get it's a sign of respect in a sense but also the people running these teams, often including often founders, had no ties those things things. So more like "fuck you for making my culture your mascot, white people from the country that genocided us." If people were not used to them existing for 100 years, they would not fly as new team names owned by white people. 100 percent not.
There were white people that had chiefs though. Almost positive the word is European based, though Chiefs still have the imagery making the specific goal clear.
A lot of people don't like the fact that we're appropriating the imagery of people that our government committed an act of genocide against and the views of multiple tribes that do not wish to have thier name and imagery associated with said teams.
That second part isn't a political correctness issue, it's more of a respect issue.
> views of multiple tribes that do not wish to have thier name and imagery associated with said teams.
Haven't seen this happen
Most tribes are perfectly fine with this
It's been a year since they won the ws. Now they came to the white house??
They couldn’t go on the off-season because of the lockout. The Braves are playing a series against the Nats so that’s why they are there now
Haven't read the book, House of the Dragon, but I'm not getting the vibe that either side is supposed to the good guys. At the end there's just going to be the winners.
Except Cole, I hope he loses spectacularly.
Martin’s pretty keen on no “good guys”
>"When everybody is saying, ‘Call this play, call that play,’ it makes it tough for everybody to do their jobs,” Trubisky said. “Everyone’s got suggestions. Everybody wants the ball in their hands. I think everybody just needs to worry about their job."
Yikes Mitch you couldn't have just kept this to yourself?
He's just trying to fill the shoes Roethlisberger left
I graduated from a very conservative Christian university and I recently found out that the woman I thought god wanted me to marry at the time is now a trans non binary bisexual.
Sent them a FB message to reconnect.
They transitioned to non-binary? Is that possible?? (Serious question not trying to be funny)
I mean I don’t think they are transitioning in the sense they are taking hormones but, they are transitioning to not identifying with either gender I guess
While they might not take hormones, not uncommon to take testosterone blockers in that case as they might not want to present strongly male, even if also not specifically female.
Ah, that definitely makes more sense then
Prediction for tonight: a low scoring game that's deceptively close. But when you study the game film, one team dominated the LOS and was able to gain yards and first downs while the other was getting constant 3 and outs. I predict a final score of 17-10 Giants. They're getting a lot of help in the pass rush and while the Cowboys D can hold for 3 quarters, they'll be gassed by the 4th and Saquon will take over the game
When will we admit that Carr isn’t it? I don’t think he’s considerably better than Cousins but the perception of both is quite different
where are you gonna find someone better though
he's in that good enough to keep around tier, even if he's never gonna win an All Pro
I'd normally say he can be a winner if you build around him but with how tough that decision will be for years? I'm with you. They need a stud on the level of the other 3 teams.
Many do and general opinion of Carr is that he's not considerably better than Cousins.
One of the worst questions ever is, “if a tree falls in the forest and there’s no around does it make a sound?”
Obviously yes. Then they follow up with saying, “well if no one is around to perceive the sound then the sound doesn’t exist”
If I set an alarm in my room for 7am and I’m passed out in the alleyway gutter, that alarm is still making a sound if I’m there to hear it or not. To say otherwise is fucking moronic
how do you confirm that? Have you not had a situation where battery died, power outage, etc. ? We can't confirm if we don't see it. There was a picture on front page about KMart alarm clock not going off because it counted up to 99 minutes instead of 59.
It’s gone off every time I’ve set it lol but yeah I get it. You can’t truly confirm it but the odds are it’s making a noise barring any unforeseen circumstances
i think you're taking an allegorical question about the nature of perception vs. reality slightly too literally
I am taking it too seriously lol. It seems like such a simple answer but I’m missing the bigger picture and making a big stink about it
He’s just mad no one touched his Peterson.
What would you say on this sub if your goal was to get down voted into oblivion?
The Rams have the greatest fanbase ever and LA is the greatest NFL city of all time.
Deshaun Watson did nothing wrong. All those women lied and he should of never been suspended.
I would downvote any “should of” regardless of context tbh
Watching this show on hulu called chef vs wild and the first episode is delivering.
Gd chefs are primadonnas
Freaking out on ppl there to just help..
Saw that McAfee is back on the Manningcast tonight. Love that guy
Is tonight’s game on ESPN+ or paramount?
It's on regular ESPN and ESPN+. Manningcast is on ESPN+ and ESPN2 I believe
Does Hillary not have PR people telling her it’s not a good idea to congratulate the Italian PM?
Why stop being tone deaf now?
Well no one stopped her making that weird tv show that no one liked so I guess not
So Cuba actually held a referendum that legalized gay marriage and expanded women’s rights. I’m not one of those Cuban Americans that thinks they are 100% North Korea-level dictatorship, but nonetheless I am very surprised. Pleasantly so!
End the embargo!
Agreed. It has zero positive effect, and only gives the regime and its supporters a get-out-of-jail free card for all of their evils. If I thought the Cuban people were anywhere close to overthrowing their government perhaps I’d think differently, but that very much does not seem to be the case. So instead, why don’t we either show them how big of crooks their government is if they pocket all the new money flowing in while their quality of life stays stagnant, or let them see how much better their life gets when they get to engage in dirty, filthy, capitalist free trade with the big bad empire.
Your daily reminder that the 49ers blew 3 1st round picks on a QB who can at best maybe reach Case Keenum levels.
That is, if injuries don't derail his career. Furthermore, by the time they figure out the QB situation, their generational defense will be long gone and thus the cycle of mediocrity for the San Francisco football team shall continue.
However, it's not all bad news, 49ers fans can take solace in the fact that they won multiple Superbowls 30-40 years ago and much of this footage can be viewed FOR FREE on YouTube!
> a QB who can at best maybe reach Case Keenum levels
...Trey Lance has played in a grand total of 8 regular season games
Those super bowls are the reasons why there so many 49ers fans in LA and it's so annoying.
The new family guy episode was meh at best
Sounds like a massive upgrade for Family Guy
Hasn’t that been Family Guy for like the last 10 years?
They have some moments
i truly despise people
One of my favorite sayings is “I was a people person until people ruined it.”
Cevapi needs to catch on in the US. It's too delicious not to.
Oh I had them. So good
Little logs of goodness. I like it with pita, feta and a marinated tomato and onion salad.
I go with onion, kaymak, and ajvar. Feta would be an AMAZING addition too.
Kaymak is very good too. I've seen a chevapi sandwich where it was more like a huge, fluffy crispy bread and they did it was kaymak and like 10 chevapi.
It's probably some kind of traditional Slavic bread. I'd have to ask my girlfriend. She's a Serb.
Lol those Chiefs bandwagoners sure are mad that they lost while the Broncos won
LA is home to NFL fans and transplants from all over the country and in my whole life growing up here, I saw zero Chiefs gear before they had Mahomes.
I dont know why anyone would support magnus in his accusations
Dude offers zero evidence. He is just a sore loser.
Well...when you use a computer to find the best possible move that you couldn't find otherwise, that would certainly be a helpful form of cheating.
As an example, you can have something hidden in your shoe or wherever that a person remotely vibrates when a chess engine thinks you're in a critical position. Even just knowing when your next move is important or not is probably enough to give a GM a significant advantage.
>in your shoe
or allegedly in uh...... other places
I barely follow chess, but I imagine you could easily have a computer playing for you. These days the chess AI on your phone could easily beat the best player in the world 10/10 times. Maybe it involved that?
If the NFL seriously wants to improve international support, they're going to have to get rid of these late night games. Starting at 0130 on Tuesday morning is not a way to encourage viewers.
What’s the alternative?
Weekend games. Occasional mid-week ones on global holidays, but whatever happens no starts later than 6pm.
That will never happen. You're completely forgetting the west coast which is a much more important market than the international. A 6pm start on the east coast is 3pm on the west coast so everybody is still at work.
This is purely speculative and I have no idea what the NFL's long term plans are, but if Europe had its own division it might work out. They could play each other and a few traveling US teams in EU the first 4-5 weeks, head to the USA for the mid season, then head back to the EU for the last 4-5 weeks. If they play noon games while in the US I imagine that's prime EU watching time.
Relegate the worst team in each division to the European Football League the first year. Each year after that the best team from each of the EFL conferences relegate back in and the worst team in the AFC and NFC relegate out. Division matchups are 3x instead of 2x, play one extra cross conference division and one extra in conference division and I think that lines up.
Neat idea but there is no way the owners would vote for that.
I don’t think they’re gonna give up prime time viewership.
And they aren’t gonna put more games on sunday
Probably not, Saturday is an option though it'll conflict with your college footy.
It'll just be interesting to see if they even consider it while trying to claim it's a global league.
They’re never gonna schedule games that conflict with college football, Congress ruled on this decades ago
I dislike college, but it won’t happen
> Saturday is an option
Saturday is not an option until the college football regular season ends in December.
The other night, I actually had a dream about scorigami for one of yesterday's games. It was Philly vs Washington. In said dream, I was looking at the scorigami website, and Washington wound up winning with a score of 102-49. Like with the Chiefs-Rams game a few years back, they had to expand the chart into the triple-digits.
Dreams are weird, man.
I badly need to trade Kamara but I can't for the life of me think of who I should try for
What are your weaknesses?
My other running backs are a little sketchy; Patterson, James Robinson, and Khalil Herbert. But all in all, I'd say receiver is pretty rough for me: Deebo, Michael Pittman Jr., and DeVante Parker are my only real playable WRs
You'd be selling low on him, which is not the best. You’re not gonna get JJ or Kupp. And your RB depth would be 0 once DMont comes back. I might sit on it another week.
I just remembered that I forgot to mention Christian Kirk, but I do think I'll wait and just start Robinson and Patterson at RB for now
Uh oh, I think I've got a downvoter. Here's another one for ya! Keep up the good work!
sad griddy noises
Whenever I see a link that I'm not sure if I should click at work, I just go to the bathroom and pretend to take a shit so I can click on it. But then I'm sitting on the toilet, so I figure I might as well squeeze out a few turds if I can, afterwards I obviously have to wipe. Doing this ~3 times a day has absolutely wrecked my asshole.
I would recommend you stop trying to shit during these fake bathroom breaks. From what I've been told by doctors that is a good way to cause some damage down there. I'm assuming you are forcing things rather than have some turds on deck ready to go.
Waterwipes are your friend.
I've lost about 20-23 pounds in the past 5 months or so, but I didn't really feel like it. Saw a picture of me from april and wow I look big, feeling good about myself today. Funny how when progress is gradual you don't notice it until you look back. Got some work to do but glad I'm not knocking on the door of 200 lbs anymore.
Tried a new cologne at a store and oh my god is it delicious. Bvlgari Man wood essence
I don’t think you’re supposed to drink it
That’s what they want you to think
How did it take me so many years to realize that a big piece of Miami's home hot-weather advantage is the fact that the stadium is designed to put the visiting bench in the sun and the Dolphins in the shade at game time
well the roof/overhang they only put up a few years ago, before that everyone got nearly equal amounts of roasting sun
I wouldn't take it too hard
phew I guess I'm not crazy then, I had it hardwired into my mind from the 90s and 00s that *everyone* just got cooked by the sun there
Are we really supposed to get hyped for Cooper Rush vs Daniel Jones tonight?
I personally am, but that's because I love watching dogshit football
I want the Giants to end up being the last remaining undefeated team at 4-0 just to spark chaos
Eh, more in it for Manningcast since Eli is a Giants homer to the max and it annoys Peyton.
Primetime NFC East matchups are inevitable. You may as well learn to love them.
I'm hyped to either Daniel "Wish.com Eli" Jones look like boiled ass, or the Cowboys to choke it up and see McCarthy's look of quiet disapproval.
I'm hyped to see Zeke put up 21 points because that's what I need for fantasy
Micah Parsons vs Andrew Thomas and Saquon Barkley though. Or Trevon Diggs vs the PFF graders
Hello friends, what are we overreacting to today? I'm just trying to catch up so I can give the appropriate hot takes
Broncos are supposed to be putting up 80 points a game. Burn the stadium and your new Russel Wilson Jersey, Fire Everyone except essential workers like the beer vendors n stuff, get new owners, GM, HC, STC. And forfeit the season for draft picks. Draft a first round QB....
I do love a good Broncos dumpster fire
Let russ cook...in a dumpster fire😔
well you see week 3 was actually the super bowl
I'll be damned Hot Carl
Eagles and Dolphins are Super Bowl-bound, the Lions and Vikings are somehow both trash despite one beating the other, and the entire Buffalo coaching staff needs to go in for anger management.
That Adderall shortage is hitting them hard
My parents who smoke: I'm tired of people throwing trash in our yard as they go by
Me: Yeah, Esp the people tossing cigarette butts everywhere
I pick up litter on the side of the road by my house about once a week and the number of cigarette butts I've picked up in the last year is insane. Probably 1,000. All of which would otherwise go straight into the drains and into the rivers. Litter sucks, man.
No doubt. There's a decent amount of mini liquor bottles and the like all up and down my street. My mom gets more upset over the left dog shit and I'm like at least that stuff degrades fast. I'm tired of seeing fast food bags.
dude you know who's sneak-attack doing great is Slim Jims. I see those wrappers everywhere.
Funny, one just blew in through my car window and landed on my lap out of nowhere..... The other day ago
I'm cooking with leeks for the first time tonight. Besides the roots, obviously, can I just use the whole thing?
