Canteen now back to WR? That was fast.

"In my mind, Michigan should have had Jim locked down a month before that, and could have. I can only conclude that Dave Brandon is the sole reason Jim did not become our football coach in 2010."
Ugh, reading that is some painful shit.

This is a different bird most likely as it looks like a jake, notice the short "beard" on the chest. A male turkey alive in 2013 would have an enourmous beard by now unless it froze off in the winter (not likely in Ann Arbor). When this one grows up though and gets some nice pointy spurs and a bad territorial attitude I think people will not enjoy having it around. The DNR will likely come in and trap it then.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Totally agree. Very ugly.||
Totally agree. Very ugly. But I still love mine. Comfortable to drive, very safe, very reliable (0 problems in 3 years of ownership), and quite handy. The fold up seats and in bed trunk are very usefull and swallow gear. Kills it in the snow, stability control isn't too touchy and works like it should. Off road it isn't like the Tacoma it replaced but does fine for most purposes and carries the hunting dogs just fine and a dead deer or two. Cons: ugly, from most angles but looks fine from others which is weird. Mileage sucks, should be better for a smaller truck. Towing capacity is limited at 5000lbs but gets most things done. Looking forward to the redesign which is rumored to be coming soon.

Being a wildlife biologist is never useful on this blog, until today (or when discussing Bret Bielema). That is a raccoon with some kind of condition leading to hair loss such as mange, ringworm, or alopecia. Sometimes a diet change can do the same. Google "raccoon with mange". Happens with coyotes also and people go nuts and call the TV station. Perhaps Mrs. Stock should supply it with whatever she uses on her own scalp, seems to be very effective for her and they are both mammals so why not.
People thinking that a medium sized mammal can maintain a population level high enough to persist yet somehow go undocumented for decades in areas with high human populations, tons of hikers and hunters, and severe habitat fragmentation are living in a fantasy world (populated by bigfoots (bigfeet?), chupacabras, loch ness monsters, high school linemen with "excellent pad level", large breasted centaurs, and Miley Cyrus.)

Moving back to Ann Arbor and wife needs a commuter with AWD and decent mileage that may be able to actually tow something and has great safety ratings because primary driver is accident prone. Getting one of the following: Subaru Outback, Mercedes GLK 250 bluetec, Audi Q5 diesel, grand cherokee diesel.

I was a fly fishing and horse riding guide in mongolia for a couple years. That line of work sounds fun but is actually quite stressful and just horrible for family life. When a dude pays $18000

Kiante is nice. I had dinner with him and a census taker once. We had liver with fava beans. fuh fuh fuh fuh fuh fuh...

Probably didn't have to use your AK either. How is the pager?

You have mentioned it twice now and piqued my curiosity...what does the bankruptcy aspect of this have to do with anything?

To be fair, that is the same face that most people make when I start speaking Mongolian.

Spot on. The Judge Judy stuff is quirky and goofy and sand in the undies of many MSU and OSU fans.

Ha, wait until your baby is born and sleep deprivation kicks in. Compared with what is coming the cheese grater incidents will feel like your time together back by the lake on Naboo.

"particularly a long ulna to upper arm ratio". Really? Has it come to this?

I hope he warns the hosts, 7-10 NFL rookies would obliterate the buffet.

At first glance, i thought that was porn on the TV screens.

Assistant coaches should purchase their own moving vans. They would probably pay for themselves after a few years. What a nomadic existence.

Wow, with Durkin at 36 years in age these are some young coordinators.

Completely agree, Any coach that we would want can't possibly be looking at the other open jobs right now. Plus, maybe I have a penchant for self destructive behavior but keeping up with the constant CC threads and speculation is very fun though clearly others disagree.

Now Dave, on to that political career which will likely need to take place in another state. I'm suggesting Ohio.

Wait, hayden Fry impregnated my mom? No wonder I have this inner drive to punt on third down and paint my brother's room pink.

More like Tapir-cock. Now excuse me while I research why a tapir needs a cock nearly 1/4 its own body length.

Wow, that is a much better landing spot than the normal transfers of late. Good luck to him.
|1 year 29 weeks ago||I missed two full seasons but||
I missed two full seasons but got the final scores on my short wave radio on Voice of America. Aside from two cases of explosive dysentary it was the worst part of the experience. My folks sent me VHS copies of key games and the bowl games. By the time I got them it was March or so but it wasn't like my neighbor was going to tell me the score. There are no Michigan or white foreign person friendly bars for that matter in the town I lived in. Any trip to the bar was guaranteed to turn into a fight with a drunk Mongol, kinda like Columbus with more sheep.

Sadly, that is right. You break leg in uncovered manhole on unlit street at night...tough shitski. I'm betting there will be lots of Spartan Bob (Ivan) type shenanigans as well. Gotta beef up the host county medal count and if the inoperable toilets or 3 day old borscht won't do it a "faulty" timer will. I love me some Olympics but I am not really looking forward to these as much.
|1 year 29 weeks ago||As someone who lived for||
As someone who lived for three years on the Russian border in Mongolia (essentially Asian Russia with more horses) and traveled extensively in Russia I find this all quite fitting. That is Russia Comrade! If the IOC was expecting something different they are fucking idiots. No amount of money thrown at this situation would have resulted in a different outcome. Outside of the obvious terrorist threat my primary concern is a food borne illness outbreak in the Olympic Village and/or accidents like collapsing bleacers, some poor sucker getting electrocuted while plugging in his computer, or a part of a hastily constructed building collapsing. At least a few of the gold medals have pieces of meteorite in them: http://gizmodo.com/some-olympics-gold-medalists-will-get-russias-meteorit-918000563
