Maybe you should just not use IE.

I've spent the better part of 10 hours this week making my kid a minecraft Steve costume with diamond armor. Worked on it all afternoon today only for my buddy to send me pictures of the minecraft rack at Halloween City, or whatever it's called. Apparently it's possible to just purchase costumes! Who knew?

1) Marrying the wife
A couple more trips to Zion with the kids and my guess will be that park will own my top 5.

Ground tranportation- 51k. I guess that's what it costs when you fly the students and make the staff drive.

Agricola with Trajan a very close second.

We also ended up in Hartland to save some money and because it was difficult to find the right spot in Ann Arbor. Ours was outdoors at Waldenwoods Resort.
|42 weeks 3 days ago||Patreon||
It seems like mgoblog could also use Patreon. It isn't only for youtubers and seems to be a very effective way of raising funds. As a similar case study, the longform site waitbutwhy has done quite well using Patreon- they are bringing in over 13k/month.

Hmm- so you're saying we are basically just like the OSU fans we love so much?
|1 year 6 weeks ago||I had to double check to make||
I had to double check to make sure I didn't miss like three games after reading the comments. They have a losing streak of 1 game. Let's give it some time before we all jump off the cliff.
|1 year 10 weeks ago||As a faculty member at||
As a faculty member at Eastern that got to teach an all freshman seminar this semester, I was told by several students that during orientation, they were forced to go to a game.

"Gentlemen. When I first started Reynholm Industries, I had only two things in my possession: A dream...and six million pounds. Now I have a business empire the like of which the world has never seen the like of which! I hope it doesn't sound arrogant when I say that I am the greatest man in the world."

Thumbs up on linking to a CGP Grey video, Seth!

Agreed with the addendum that the alpine lakes in American Fork Canyon are stunning. A bit chilly for anything but a quick jump in and out, but stunning nonetheless.

Wasatch beers are ok, but I think Uinta Brewing has really taken over as the best Utah brewery. I highly recommend their Dubhe imperial black IPA.

London is big, so it depends on where you are and how much you want to move around. But I highly, highly recomend finding your way over to Bourough Market. Wonderful, fresh, foods from many cultures around the world. You can find plenty to eat on site, but also a lot to take with you. It's amazing. And, if you only want to snack at the market, there are some very nice restuarants in that area. Right around the corner, Del Mercato is a very nice italian place that had the most authentic and best tasting pizza that I've had outside Italy.
|2 years 16 weeks ago||I think the idea is that||
I think the idea is that people pay taxes that go to funding these schools, so they should get a say in how the schools operate. Though over the past few years, the state funding towards higher ed has decreased...
The next question to ask is why aren't the Regents at the other state schools voted on? Instead, they are appointed by the Governor. I can tell you as an employee of one of those schools, I would much rather the people vote. Think about Eastern's Regents and their push for increasing spending on things like the football program over academics, given the history of the football program. Would you want those guys pulling weight on decisions at Michigan?

It's great to see this site get some well deserved recognition.
I was a little, I don't know, saddened? to see Schlissel say he feels like a Michigan Man. Can we please stop using that term! Michigan Man is a four letter word.
|2 years 20 weeks ago||Yeah- it's a sign of||
Yeah- it's a sign of incredible committment that you are able to continue to write compelling material at this point, Brian. Seriously, thanks.
I've never really felt sick before when it came to sports. Angry, sad, disengaged, sure. But reading this, I felt sick. It's Rutgers, and my gut thinks that Michigan is going to loose. Oh man...
|2 years 22 weeks ago||No points||
Points- I don't have many, but I wanted to make sure folks on here saw this:
Well timed with the new #Eating campaign that's been given it's own thread below.
|2 years 23 weeks ago||My first thought was that at||
My first thought was that at least I'll have time to become a hit man before this series happens.
|2 years 29 weeks ago||Yeah- I sort of figured with||
Yeah- I sort of figured with the army of people working in the AD, you could easily have a few people keep an eye on things for a few hours per week. I guess it's not worth the hastle to the department, but it's one of those smallish things that's made the program in general less special over the years. At least to me.
|2 years 29 weeks ago||The only "event" that I care||
The only "event" that I care about is the AD unlocking the stadium so you could go run the stairs or just go inside with out forking over the kid's college fund like you could in the past. Even if it's only open for an hour or two a day. Am I the only person that still shakes my fist at the air when they think about this?

A grey field. Makes me proud to be on faculty at EMU. I mean, what else could you do with that 500k?
|2 years 44 weeks ago||Agreed. It isn't the wins||
Agreed. It isn't the wins and losses or the quality of the team, but it is the product. Games are much longer than they used to be, the music is loud and played often enough that it isn't easy to actually have a conversation in between plays, and the cost of tickets and food/water continues to increase. At home, I have a bathroom, a fridge, all the free water I want, a comfortable seat and plenty of room to jump up and down or run around in circles when the game is exciting. It gets harder and harder to get up to go to games every year- and it really sucks that that's the case.

but this is fantastic. Thank you Heiko. Thank you mgoblog.
|3 years 45 weeks ago||My thoughts exactly. It's||
My thoughts exactly. It's amazing how much less I can stomach in life now that instead of picturing myself enduring some sort of pain or tramua, I'm replaced by one of my sons in the mental pictures that come with these sorts of events. No one prepared me for that before I had kids. The worst thing that I can imagine in life is a life without them.
|4 years 1 week ago||kids...||
Yeah- I relalized a few weeks ago that had we not decided to have kids, I could have taken the 4 years worth of daycare money and bought that Porsche 911 that I've always wanted. Oh well, at least I was able to upgrade from that 1986 VW Cabriolet a couple years ago anyway.

Is it possible that a current recruit would know the connection between this quote and the Fab 5? That's the first thing I thought of when I read the post, which made me think he was choosing Michigan, naturally.

I'm sorry if this is inappropriate, but are you "the Naked Man"? I just happened to catch this episode tonight.
