|3 weeks 1 day ago||somewhat similar experience, different venue...||
.. only this took place on a red eye flight from California back to Cleveland. It's I believe 3 seats, aisle, 3 seats sort of arrangement, and my ticket was for the window seat. Naturally, I'm walking in to board and this guy and his wife are in my window seat and the middle seat, putting me along the aisle. They of course are giving me that look as I'm walking toward them like they know they are in the wrong seat but just hoping whoever's seat it is doesn't say anything. I don't because I don't really care, and normally I prefer the aisle for the additional leg room.
Plane takes off... these people are stuffing their face with bags of smelly fast food to start and throwing their trash all over the floor. Then, it isn't until after we're into the flight, that I find out these idiots have put me between themselves and their 2 kids (probably 10-12 ish in age) on the other side of the aisle. While I'm trying to sleep, they spend the several hour flight passing gum and other crap over me and across the aisle to their kids never once acknowledge how f*cked up it is to have placed me in between all that. On top, un-related kid behind me is kicking my seat the whole time. It took everything I could to keep my composure and not get myself restrained by going off on those morons.
Almost forgot, the lady in my window seat was also on crutches with a boot... so instead of sitting on the aisle, this idiot makes me get up so she can limp to the bathroom any time she needs up.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||what sort of lighting...||
.. would you expect to see in a space like that?
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Fanta...||
mostly the pineapple since it's not as common a flavor, but like the others as well
|9 weeks 4 days ago||the difference for me...||
.. is the callers and their "takes." I can tolerate cowherd because I feel the callers aren't as big an element of his show... or maybe it just doesn't feel like they are to me. I feel like that's all Rome and Finebaum's shows are.
I just can't get entertained by listening to the dumbest people around sharing their dumb opinions, with a host who more often than not, is going to just turn around and mock them.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||Only thing worse I can imagine...||
.. being forced to listen to on the radio besides jim rome would be the paul finebaum show.

|15 weeks 6 days ago||Good mindset...||
Good mindset to have... amazing how many times you see a $100k+ car parked in a physicians lot. Yes, doctors work hard to get where they are... but everyone else at the hospital/practice not making that kind of salary still reserve the right to think you are a complete d-bag. Ok to own those cars, not ok to drive them to work. Seems like this should be pretty universal amongst professions.
|15 weeks 6 days ago||Maybe I just never looked closely enough...||
I spent the first 10 years of my career with GE, about 7 of those with Lighting, and 3 of those at Nela Park. Always thought there seemed to be plenty of $45k cars parked in front of the executive bldg or in the garage.
But, to your point, as far as leadership, some of those I most admired drove expensive cars in part because the company paid for them, but not all.
|17 weeks 4 days ago||This was actually the first non-call that popped into my head...||
.. maybe not the worst non-call aginst michigan ever, but the one I remember most for some reason. The ball appeared to be sitting on the turf easily a full foot outside the endzone while Carlyle Holiday's head scored the touchdown.
|17 weeks 5 days ago||I'm finally in that same place myself...||
Now that they aren't asking specifically for funds that could be used in any other better way, I don't really care what they do from here on out.
I read "endorsed" as just meaning that the student government is giving them the green light to waste as much of their own time and money on this thing, that will likely never be heard at any sort of official university event, as they want.
To me, this sort of says that this stupid crusade will only get as far as the personal time and resources these people want to invest in it will take it. if they crowd source a ton of money somehow and it turns out to be good, not really a problem... if they do that and it's bad as expected, then the idea was as dumb as we think it is.
|18 weeks 2 days ago||Pretty sure current Tundras and Tacomas||
receive final assembly in San Antonio.
|18 weeks 2 days ago||Camry...||
Isn't the Camry assembled in KY?
|18 weeks 2 days ago||I lived in western MA for a while..||
.. and every other car was a Subaru it seemed... I realize most of the population lives in eastern MA, but just didn't surprise me to see a state in the NE area that has lots of Subarus like CT.
|18 weeks 3 days ago||You can honestly imagine...||
.. a world in which Bellamy puts up 3,000 yards at any program at any level? I'm not seeing it... that alone puts O'Korn at a level above Bellamy in my book. He actually did it in college, I don't care where, something I can't imagine Bellamy ever doing.
Another way to look at it... had Bellamy stuck with his Purdue commit.. do you think at any point he'd have seen much PT there? I don't. I think a guy like O'Korn would have at a minimum challenged for the starting spot at a place like Purdue, or been the starter. Does that mean he'll be a starter at UM, maybe not, but I think to compare his talent level to bellamy is ridiculous based on what O'Korn has already accomplished.
|18 weeks 3 days ago||Pretty much...||
.. blows me away how many people feel it's some huge sin that a kid didn't try harder so the team they root for from their seat/sofa can win some football games. Is it sad he maybe didn't make it a priority to maximize his potential, sure, but that makes it nothing more than simply disappointing.
Some people on here are treating him like he slept with their girlfriend or something.
|18 weeks 3 days ago||People were upset at the POSHB||
characterization of DB because that was too over the top despite the massive rap sheet of stuff he did... and now Devin Funchess' sin of not trying hard enough at football is unforgivable? Ok.
|18 weeks 3 days ago||Fine then, don't root for him...||
.. don't think that should really serve as any sort of justification of the people taking jabs at him though.
|18 weeks 3 days ago||Right... because Funchess is the first person||
to not put 100% into something.. at least by your subjective standards.
|18 weeks 3 days ago||much quicker...||
while I think he still would have been faster, THJ played at like 6-6 205. Funchess probably would not have played basketball at his listed 6-5 230.
|18 weeks 4 days ago||Right...||
Because I'm sure the pattern of behavior where Brandon treats all current employees like shit and brings in a bunch of patsy's just started when he took the UM AD job. He never before had thought, hey, I should fire these people who disagree with me and replace them with a bunch of people who will just agree with me and make my job easier never occurred to him until a few years ago.
The way he handled the UM job absolutely makes you question how he "achieved" the success he had in prior jobs... he's obviously a master politician, knows how to jump on the p-wagon and advance his career. Does that mean he's dumb? Obviously not. But the intelligence he's displayed in advancing his best interests is absolutely not something I find admirable. Basically just shows he's smart when it comes to looking out for himself... but he's obviously not that good at it since it finally brought him down.
|18 weeks 4 days ago||Love beer and used to brew my own... but more often than not..||
.. I drink the spirits. Generally Manhattans, but often just a good Scotch or Bourbon. I will say lately, I've been very fond of Bulleit. For making mixed drinks like Manhattans, I find it a pretty good value.. can find the Rye Whiskey around here for about $27 and their bourbon at a similar price. Honestly, the best thing I've found lately is buying some Luxardo maraschino cherries, makes drinks so much better.
Tonight though, I'm going beer... drinking a He'Brew Bittersweet Lenny's Rye Double IPA. Pretty good, not great, but very drinkable for being a 10% beer. I just struggle dropping $15 bucks for like 4 beers, when for the equivelent of 16 craft beers in that price range, I can buy a good bottle of Scotch, like Laphroaig.
|18 weeks 4 days ago||So, what I'm reading in all this...||
.. is that just in the last few days since this was written, POS became reserved for describing only the most evil murderers of our world.
We can no longer think of someone as a POS, like a million people do every day, because someone does something dumb, is a bad driver, lies, is rude, is oblivious, etc? Nobody says that about someone to imply they are as bad as IS. When did this change?
And as far as charity... I guess we can't call Lance Armstrong a POS?.. because he lied, cheated, was a jerk, etc, but gave a lot of money to charity to fund cancer research so that somehow offsets how bad a person he was otherwise? I'm sure he was nice to certain people as well.
The bits about how he treated current employees, basically letting people go and disrupting their families, just to bring in a bunch of yes men is enough for him to qualify as POS in my book.
|19 weeks 3 days ago||My unpopular music opinion...||
.. Mike Patton, one of the most original and creative musicians in the last couple decades. Not everything he does is good, some is crap, but I appreciate that he tries new things and doesn't seem to care if people like it or not.
|19 weeks 3 days ago||Ever seen Clown Hunt?||
think you might change your mind.
|19 weeks 3 days ago||Houseguest with Sinbad...||
..is a top 5 comedy. ST3
|19 weeks 3 days ago||It does have an effect...||
..when you are asking for funding that could be used to support basically any other more worthy cause.
|19 weeks 4 days ago||Hoosier/Irish bball/fball fan...||
i.e. 75% of the state of Indiana. Also fans not capable of having anything resembling a rational thought when discussing their team... also, shockingly, probably 75% of the state of Indiana. Ohio is right up there as well, with the exception of some areas like Cleveland where the OSU fan density is a little lighter.
Also, smack talking OSU (or other school) fan that is only aware of maybe the team's head coach and QB, didn't watch the game last weekend, but is still going to say something to you about it anyway.
|20 weeks 3 days ago||Well... our coaches sure as heck||
wanted him, so they must not have seen this lack of drive to succeed that you do. I'll go ahead and assume their first hand interactions with Weber gave them a sense of his character you have no way of matching.
|21 weeks 1 day ago||Completely different situations...||
Hoke was coaching in college when he got the UM job... actively recruiting and evaluating high school players. I don't care how good a coach Harbaugh is, the guy didn't have high school players anywhere on his radar until he took this job, and as many of his staff that have come from the NFL as well, they wouldn't have been scouting high school players either.
