Unless you're an old fucker who can rememeber it. Like me.

This time, the opposite. Flood. But we've done wildfire, too, an unassisted evac with my wife 7.5 mos pregnant.

True story: In Sept '13 I was airlifted from my house by the Colorado National Guard. I've been using the same razor I packed in my backpack that day ever since. I believe it is an Object from God and I am starting a religion based on it.

Shit. I'm headed to King Soopers to clear the shelf right now.

My own personal MILF is a fan... "which pretty much makes me a vegetarian," as it were.

If heart surgery were $11.99 those fuckers would be raking it in. Is it my problem they are working with such a messed up business model?

As pretty much just a C-family bitflipper... I am wondering if I should be afraid of you.

Iggy being the king of the junkies, I was pretty sure it really wasn't the Stooges.
I see Iggy's on the bill this year. Saw the Stooges at RF Denver 2013, some of their set anyway, before I split to claim a good location for the Mats. He's a force of nature, and Fun House is in my top 10. But it really is time to put a shirt on, Igg.

In the 80s, hipsters were into metal tape. My bootleg of "Tim" still sounds great.

So Iggy and the Stooges are more your thing?

Mrs. WWM had excellent seats for one of the Denver shows and said it was great. I kinda wanted to inspect the spectacle since I haven't done an arena show since... having to think... R.E.M. in '89, which probably doesn't even count. But with Old 97s and Cracker in town the same week, no Bono.

That is all.

Any of the ones still hanging on w/ elements of the confedate battle flag by definition suck.
I always thought Michigan's was kinda lame, just one of those state seals on a bedsheet ones. but looking at it now, many years and a few psychedilic experiences later, the dancing caribou and moose with the eagle and the waving fur trapper stuck like three layers inside are fairly trippy. Way better than Pennsylvania's dancing black horses and turkey buzzard. I mean, Michigan is just tops in the dancing animals on flags category.
Overall, though: New Mexico. These people understand how to do flags.

Wyoming has a cow that swallowed a huge coin. THAT is tough to beat.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||I don't agree with that. If||
I don't agree with that. If the NFL wants to stipulate the ball be this or that in some aspect, or some characteristic be within some range, that's within the league's purview. And the league should have an interest in maintaining a level playing field.
The issue is, having done so, the league is obliged to be consistent in its enforcement practices, not completely oh whatever, as appears to be the situation with ball inflation up to this point.

I lived in Huntsville once upon a time. Madison, to be precise. I hear it's quite a bit different these days, but I'll stick with "Any excuse to not be there is good one."

Plus you can stop shaving. If you get a powerboat, you not only have to shave, but you also have to start wearing cologne.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||Which trolling motor you||
Which trolling motor you like? I'm planning to put a 55# MinnKota w/ iPilot on 14' tin can, but I don't have any experience with them, just going by yeah that looks like exactly what I'm thinking...

My wife knows exactly what a fly rod arriving by UPS or FedEx looks like, but she has never talked numbers. I love her.

Nice fleet. Avatar's cool, too.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||I'll spend a week in so.||
I'll spend a week in so. Maine, flyfishing for stripers, and I'll spend another week someplace else, flyfishing for something else, but haven't decided where/what. I'd like to get back the AK interior for pike or someplace like the Ribdon & tribs on the North Slope for sea-run char, haven't ruled out snook in SW Fla in June, and a trip to Wiscy for muskies is also under consideration -- though the likely outcome is pissing that week away here and there with mid-week drop-outs and extending weekend runs to the Fryingpan (trout), RMNP backcountry (trout), and SW Nebraska (hybrid bass, mainly).
I'm not sure what my wife's summer vacation plans are yet...

That's beautiful country.

I'm an avid boater. In fact, I have a regular armada. Two belly boats, a Buck's Bag pontoon, a Hobie pontoon, an Old Town 17-footer, and, the jewel, a '55 MonArk 1436 jon boat that I've customized into a sweet flatwater flyfishing watercraft.
And I have to say, a 30' boat is just insane. You will never get a beast like that around on the carp flats.

I hate what happened to him. I love the way he, Beilein and everyone else involved responded.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||Exactly. It is a good thing||
Exactly. It is a good thing for the players to get exposed to quality coaching, and an event like that has to potential reach the kids that participate in other positive ways, esp if the msg includes a pitch on the importance of their academics.
iirc, the coaching staff's have to be invited to participate, and this is not the Jim Harbaugh Michigan's Coming to Steal Your Recruits Again Saban Football Camp. No doubt the word has been put out through contacts and channels that Harbaugh and staff are available, but they do have to be wanted there.
Saban's a pretty powerful coach. He's not a helpless victim. He could lobby his conference via his AD for changes, or he could press for changes at the NCAA level. But he exploits things his conference allows that are prohibite elsewhere, and his whiny bitch routine sux.

Anyone who pulls the Don't You Know Who I Am? bit should get the screws.
Don't You Know Who I Think I Was? (h/t the Mats)
|15 weeks 5 days ago||The place I worked from 89-93||
The place I worked from 89-93 switched from UUCP to SMTP in the early 90s, and I had access to Usenet there as well. That was pretty much the internet then. Had an AOL account by 93 or 94, and got a domain around 96.
I first accessed a dial-up BBS in circa... 87. Whenever I installed my first modem, which may have been 300 or 1200 baud for all I remember, in my Leading Edge PC ($5,000, two floppy drives, amber monitor).

Whenever we've started calling a dog something while trying to think of a name, that became the name.
What should we call Smokey? We're already calling him Smokey.
Good on you for giving a dog a good home.
