07/03/2013 - 1:05pm How is this not a band name already?

Although it is a beer, after a brief googling.

Also apparently "Low quality marijuana originating from the greater Ypsilanti, Michigan area"

01/14/2013 - 10:45am It's not completely impractical

I can imagine a time when you have a smart fridge that automatically scans every item in the fridge and creates an automatic inventory.  Then, if you're on your way home from work and want to check if you need to pick up milk or hot sauce or whatever, you can automically pull up a list, neatly sorted, of the contents, sorted by item, expiration date, even level remaining.  Complete information to base your decisions off of. 

Perhaps it even notices what you buy often and are running low on and runs a report to check local stores for pricing, availability, and sales to steer you to the best deals.  Or it notices that you have all the ingrediants for a great recipe but x and y and suggests you pick those up to make chicken cordon bleu tonight, or whatever.  Or it could track your preferences and suggest alternative products you might be interested in: I know you always buy x brand bratwurst, you might want to try them with y brand mustard. 

Would these revolutionize the way you live?  Likely not, but they could be helpful and quite nice in some circumstances.  It may be cost prohibitive at the moment but with electronic pricing dropping daily, there could be a time where consumers are willing to spend an extra hundred dollars or whatever to have these conveniences.  Or they won't and the fridges won't sell, and the market has decided fridge R&D has to look elsewhere for the next great innovation.

12/05/2012 - 4:08pm Probably a way to reduce

... and an attempt to minimize some of the more extreme forms of competition that can arrise from grouping so many type A personalities in the same room.

Yeah, not the most manball of facebook pages, but I've seen worse initiatives.

11/28/2012 - 7:19pm Well the ACC did just get rid of Maryland

So they have that going for them.

11/28/2012 - 10:28am Happens for me too.

I just subscribe on iTunes.  You get it a day later, but you don't have to deal with that annoyance.

10/24/2012 - 11:42am 41-30

Michigan 41

Nebraska 30


Rushing 274

10/22/2012 - 12:21pm Beat me to it.

Yup, that was a fun one.  Fairly orderly, lots of wooooo-ing, and got a picture with Wave Guy. 

10/11/2012 - 12:37pm Prevail and Ride?


10/10/2012 - 10:13am 45-17

And now to check if I was the first to put that number down

10/02/2012 - 3:51pm I might be misinterpretting

But I believe OP was saying the eye-gouging was buss league

10/02/2012 - 7:49am Dr. Who isn't for everyone

But it is for people who like quick, semi-manic British humor centered around some standard sci-fi adventures and some above standard sci-fi adventures.  The characters are well written and it can be kooky or poignent from one moment to the next.  

And watch the new Who (2005), the old has not aged well if you're not looking through nostalgia glasses.  If you're having a hard time getting into it, give the 11th Doctor's first episode a short (The 11th Hour in Series 5), or you can try some of the classics like Blink, The Girl in the Fireplace, or Silence in the Library.

A note on premise: The Doctor is an near ageless dude who has multiple incarnations.  Every time he dies, he reincarnates as a "new" Doctor.  We're currently on the 11th.  He flies through time with a couple human hanger-ons, generally sight seeing and adventuring, but always ends up having to fix something wherever he lands.

09/12/2012 - 1:09pm Neither?

I guess BW3 if you just want a lot of TVs

08/29/2012 - 12:41am Nick try Mr. Saban...

Nick try Mr. Saban...

08/21/2012 - 6:19pm The following comments will make me sound much older

... and much more curmudgeonly than I really am. 

The Rilo shirt I think would be much better with only the front side (and perhaps an ellipses).  I certainly would buy it then.

And please please don't make the second, but especially not the third Upton shirt.  All for the first one, but I mean c'mon.  Don't make me hate Michigan fans for for wearing those shirts.

OK, I really am that curmudgeonly.

07/23/2012 - 8:14pm It's already in

Source: I saw it yesterday

01/21/2012 - 7:27pm I completely thought I had

I completely thought I had just learned some new slang.  


"So that's what the kids are saying these days, dagnabbit." 

01/04/2012 - 9:02pm Good luck to him

Shame it wasn't us, but good luck none the less to DeAnthony and his family

10/10/2011 - 9:36pm Never let reality intrude

When you can make a joke and/or get a random internet dude in trouble with his wife.

10/01/2011 - 1:23am Ohpleaseohpleaseohpleaseohpleasebethereason

Also get better soon Denard.

09/24/2011 - 12:13am I was snarky before

But yeah, they are stepping up.  So kudos to them.  Thanks Ricks.



And JBA, awesome what you're doing, but maybe cut down on the melodrama.
09/23/2011 - 8:55pm Going for the classy crowd I see.

Good call.

09/21/2011 - 12:03am Every time I see one of these

I get excited then a little disappointed because in my mind :[player's name] is intrinsically linked with a Hello post.  


Ah well, I suppose I should relax.  Good interview Ace and looking forward to the recruitment Mr. Wiggins.

09/20/2011 - 7:43am Let's play a game

Who all came into this thread to find out what a Dev. Ctr. was?

09/14/2011 - 12:01pm Nice try Dave Brandon

We still don't want a mascot

09/12/2011 - 8:03am (No subject)

That's the joke

09/11/2011 - 9:37pm I watched the game in Philadelphia

And made friends with a Penn State fan. It helped that he had made a bet on us winning but even after the lines about how he can't believe he was rooting for Michigan and how this will only happen once, by the end he was jumping up and down with me with high fives aplenty.

09/08/2011 - 9:16am I can get down with this idea

Cheerleader sweaters for everyone!

08/25/2011 - 12:56pm Bold prediction

This thread will not end well.


Also I has a sad now.

08/18/2011 - 10:43pm "proofing of evidence"

::eye twitch::

08/15/2011 - 2:13pm ::Combs article for typos::

Nope, all good here.  Checks out 100%.



08/08/2011 - 11:24am Go to the bar.

It fixes all of life's problems.

08/03/2011 - 9:09am Interesting Factoid

A factoid is not in fact a little fact or a bit of trivia.

From Wikipedia:

factoid is a questionable or spurious—unverified, incorrect, or fabricated—statement presented as a fact, but with no veracity


No, I did not add the veracity part myself.  The belief that a factoid is a bit of trivia is in fact a factoid.






08/01/2011 - 3:13pm As much as I agree with the sentiment...

Please don't use that phrase associated with Michigan football.  Pretty please.

08/01/2011 - 12:46pm DOODIES!


Sorry, first thing that came to mind.

07/13/2011 - 9:31am Started watching it

Spent the first bit musing about how "Isn't that the ESPN homage?" then suddenly at 1:03, EPILEPSY.  


Edit: and this reply did not go where I thought it would.  In reference to the video France719 posted

06/29/2011 - 12:03am Every now and then I see headlines like these on Fark

And somehow they always lead back to Ohio.




06/24/2011 - 4:44pm Graphs do not work that way


Proper usage:


06/14/2011 - 5:37pm I submit that

I submit that using submit in this manner makes anything 17% funnier.



05/25/2011 - 6:31pm False equivalency.

It was a DUI.  Totally different beast.

05/19/2011 - 11:26am That brings back memories

I had forgotten how much I hated getting/enjoyed watching crabs.

05/18/2011 - 12:45am Only in Columbus

... would they have a zombie parade so the military could win.

04/29/2011 - 3:23pm Always.


04/27/2011 - 11:42am Uh, maybe we could avoid certain phrases

Such as: "Good lookin' out, uncle Tom."


Tom, his uncle.  His father's brother Tom.  Close relative Tom.


Just sayin.

04/25/2011 - 5:05pm Conforth

I had Conforth for two classes (Hippies, Beatniks, and Punks and American Folklore) at U of M and he was amazing.  As for the single lecture angle, Conforth's last lecture of the class is always great.  I still remember every bit and still have the two cards he handed me at the end of each course.


/Don't let the hungry ghosts get you.

04/25/2011 - 10:55am I'll throw another vote to Coach and Four

Certainly not the cheapest, but you can't beat the atmosphere and Jerry is great.  Always did a great job with my old white dude afro and my now more standard short hair.

Of course my opinion might be tainted by the fact that I've been going there forever and he would often offer me a beer while waiting.

04/18/2011 - 2:49pm Orson's already noted it

And no, as the people in question are not enrolled yet. Until they step foot officially on campus, no points.

04/05/2011 - 12:02am Please don't use "the

Please don't use "the Butterfly."

03/31/2011 - 8:58pm Just so everyone is clear on this

This is not a "new" DUI.  It happened back in November.

"The Grand Rapids Press reports that Grady's blood alcohol level was more than three times the legal limit of 0.08 at the time of his November arrest in nearby Grandville."

I remember reading about it then.  

I hope Kevin gets some help.

03/24/2011 - 10:53pm FAKES is a universal measurement for trustworthiness.

1 FAKE out of 5 would be an accurately measured 40 time at a public event, reasonable for the athlete in question.


5 FAKES out of 5 would be reporting a 300 pound lineman routinely races cheetahs in his spare time, and wins.


(40 times are constantly exagerated.  Not every high school and college kid runs a 4.2)

03/18/2011 - 2:57pm Did you expect to win by 30?

Did you expect to win by 30?
