Hockey pet peeve: "when a teammate tips a puck in on you, which is exactly how my first collegiate goal against happened. Thanks, Copper."
We're having a party tonight (not related to the end-of-world). So this is what I'm serving:
Beer -- Shiner Bock, Sierra Nevada Celebration, Stella Artois, Fat Tire, Pilsner Urquell, Miller Lite
Wine -- Root 1 Sauvignon Blanc, Caymus Conundrum, Educatated Guess Cabernet, Llai Pinot Noir
Liquor - Gentleman Jack, Crown Royal Reserve, Grey Goose
Misc -- Mike's Hard Pink Lemonade
I also bought a bottle of Absinthe out of curiosity and will play it by ear on that one.
Should be a heck of an evening!
It looks as if you are quite the host!
Hope you like the absinthe; it's one of my favorite drinks.
I'm not sure what to expect with it. Is it pretty much just a strong liquer now?
It just so happens the Mayan's version of April Fools happens only once and today is the day. They are all laughing in their pyramid graves.
Once every 13 baktuns, so we've got some time to kill before the next big laugh.
Don't you get it? This is the end, and all the righteous are gone but we're left behind. It's just hard to notice because there weren't that many righteous people. I'll check my grandmas condo. If all I find is an afghan in her empty chair, we'll know.
Well if the rapture happened, why is Barry Bonds still here?
I don't think they knew about Leap Year - the end is nigh!
Did the world end yet up in Michigan. Down here in Ohio it looks like it has already begun!
Nevermind - that's the way it always looks around here. My bad.
The end of the world is never off topic. C'mon.
it will have the appearance of a gigantic buckeye nut.
How many tattoos will it have?
It will also NOT strike Florida, California, Louisiana or anywhere else a bowl game is being played.
I think a lot of lawyers assumed the world was ending this morning. I only had 20 new emails in my inbox when I opened Outlook. (I'm sure its not because of the holidays - those a--holes never take vacation days.)
Good god do I hate lenders right now
So is the vacation days thing self-referential, or about OTHER lawyers?
I'm pretty sure profit is a lawyer in DC doing bankruptcy work, IIRC. Maybe he's just pissed that other lawyers won't stop working. All of us would if lenders would leave us alone, but they want to close deals to boost their year end bonuses.
Close. I'm an in-house guy for the evil lenders and all the out-house lawyers are making me stay and do work. (I even had to stay after 5pm yesterday!!!!) That said, keep those deals closing - my bonus depends on it too!
6 pm before I absolutely have to go Christmas shopping. Very well
Looking forward to spending Christmas with the family and seeing The Hobbit. Also, can't wait to see Zero Dark Thirty.
OH MY GOD. WE'RE ALL GOING TO DIE.
I am going to live forever or die trying!
In Key West and its only 69 degrees right now, so maybe there is something to this? I'm going to drink like it's ending, anyway.
20 seconds to impact. Ten... nine... eight... seven... six... five... four... three... two... one... Impact. This is Crystal Palace. Are you still on? This is Crystal Palace. Are you still on? Anyone there? That's affirmative, sir. Yeah! We're here! - Jesus H Christ! We're still here! - Our boards are showing impact. No, sir. No impact. We're alive and well.
Shall we play a game?
I'm not sure how well this film resonates with the youth of today, but when it was released -- 1983? -- world-ending, all out nuclear war with the Soviets was very much on the minds of a lot of people, and there were very terrifying images and made-for-TV films (ahem..."The Day After") which fueled my nightmares for years.
On a lighter note -- my personal favorite part of the film is this:
"Remember you told me to tell you when you were acting rudely and insensitively? Remember that? You're doing it right now."
Did it seem like this apocalypse prediction got a ton of more pub that the previous 12 that were predicted this past decade?
Growing up, I was always told the world would end in the year 2000 (Y2K). Then June 6, 2006 (6-6-6) was supposed to be death day. And we had several in between that made the news. But those Mayans ended up getting the most press: articles, news segments, school closings, survival gear advertisements.
Sorry, world. No excuse to blow off your Christmas shopping now.
The world still seems to be turning, but my computer got hit with the mother of all Y2K viruses. Pictures of Michigan football players wearing WVU/Cal uniforms keep popping up on my screen.
Damn and I really wanted to try lizard sex. I heard the girls with forked tongues are masters.
Shit: I missed it. Are we now in some alternate reality where the world didn't end?
Well yes but the problem is that when it happened everybody's memories were changed along with it and now everybody here is telling me crazy things like Michigan didn't win the 2006 national championship and that we hired West Virginia's coach (as if Rodriguez would ever leave there) for three years. I mean I'm happy to avoided the Dantonio era and that whole embarrassment/fiasco--tell me, in this reality does he still end up in jail?
While I'm at it, please tell me the Big Ten never expanded with UConn and Pitt and we're still at 12 right? RIGHT?
Ellerbe's still the coach and Goss is still the AD, so it's all good . . . .
I see two people have downvoted this thread. Must be bitter Mayans.
Suck it Mayans. This is why there is no Mayan flag on the Moon.
= end of the world. I have spoken.
but we got a little scare last night @ 6 11 pm our power went out for about five to ten mln. Not the end of the world but very interesting. I am not sure what caused this but we did have high winds last night. Was anyone else besides my entire niegborhood without power around 6 pm last night?
