    I'm guessing it'll be a repeat of last year's league ending Broncos/Giants debacle if the Bills somehow win this week.

    Not sure if I've ever seen a ranked team as a 26 point underdog before, though I rarely pay attention to that kind of thing. Feels fair though, considering A&M's ability to give up giant plays on defense and Alabama grinding everything in their path to dust.

    Last time I was on, I ran into somebody from a crew that would've been dear to @jstout's heart. The crew name was allah akbar-ers. Their crew tag was BOOM.

    I'm perfectly happy killing dots, but I mostly avoid fucking with people doing jobs. Mostly. That article kinda sounds like what I was saying a few weeks ago. They've broken the game with the new shit. If oppressors are about I just stay out of cars. They're mostly harmless wtihout lock on

    Graduated from engineering school nearly 25 years ago. Work in a building with over a thousand engineers in it, mostly with graduate degrees. Anybody that thinks engineers are universally smart hasn't met enough of em. I don't cut my own hair, though.

    Got on for a little while last night before passing out early. Had one of those moments where if Stout was there he would've asked himself "why do I play with this dumbass when he does stuff like this?" There was a group of six running a Stand Your Ground. Mostly really high levels. They had the new tank, the gunner Insurgent and the new Oppressor. The rest of the room was giving em a wide berth. So of course I figured what the hell, why not? Tank went down first, using the time honored Night Shift method. Insurgent went down second, after I got up on a roof and the dumbasses came after me. Oppressor guy abandoned his bike for the ground. After that I left em to it. They did the steal motorcycles thing as well. I got two of the cycles. Then it became one on four in open ground. That didn't go so well for me.

    Seems like there's always a week that wipes out half the league. It's not usually week one, though. Fortunately my faith in the Bills was rewarded.

    Yahoo seems to disagree, at least for now. Marked all the Steelers picks green

    New truck is fun in all the stupid ways I wanted it to be fun. It useless in freemode of course, like every other car is now. Had to go into an invite only to enjoy it yesterday for a few minutes. It's perfect for one of those 20 minute melraz shortcuts.

    Saw my first old school tank in a long time yesterday. It was a nice bit of nostalgia, since everybody uses those two man things now. My car was wedged all the way under the thing when I set the explosives off.

    Texas fans spent all offseason listening to people saying this is the year they return to being good. Local paper is always fun the day after this type of loss

    This year I'm not listening to anything Rippa says, especially if he says the Giants are guaranteed to lose. And I'm dams sure not changing my pick based on what he says Not that I'm bitter or anything preposterous like that

    On a kick return, no less. Surely starters on special teams = toughness.

    I've been an A&M fan since the early 80s. I'm immune to being annoyed by terrible play calls. As long I get option plays to the short side of the field in critical situations, I'll feel right at home.

    $75 million dollar man debuted last night. Aggies somehow managed to look really unimpressive, despite having 750 yards of offense and winning by 49. Also, the team is tougher and more physical now. I know that because the announcers informed me of it every other play, and because our two best defenders managed to get themselves ejected on textbook targeting calls in the first half.

    Worked from home this morning. Got in at lunch time to find the following 1. We've got no AC. It's August. In Texas. 2. We've got major flooding, and it's raining in the labs. There's tens of millions of dollars of electronics and semiconductor test equipment in there. It doesn't like water. Gonna be a fun day. And we just got evacuated.

    New armored car is a beast. I sat still in mine yesterday while somebody that was butthurt with me put at least 15 rockets into it. It did finally start to catch fire, but I still had time to hop out and kill him. Don't know how dangerous it is offensively, but it takes a pounding. I'm wondering if they've gone too far with all the weaponized garbage they've added. Can't drive anywhere without getting killed by a rocket from some flying thing you didn't know was there. That's gotta cut down on people buying high end cars at least somewhat. I've taken to using the Nightshark/new armored car just to avoid that, if I have to drive. Otherwise, it's just stay on foot, which is about like it always was.

    I don't see a problem with this. We mostly get south winds this time of year, so that'll keep the fallout away from my house.

    Saw a BBC report that the shooter was one of the competitors, and had just been eliminated.

    Guess they figured covering up serious, long term domestic violence made them at them at worst the fourth biggest bunch of shitheads in the Big 10. Meanwhile, my school's $75 million coach looks to be under investigation before he's coached a game. Closest thing I can think of there is legendary Alabama head coachMike Price, and even he only got investigated by the school, not the NCAA.
  24. It took me a long time to remember what an Avenger actually was. Only way I did was by thinking "what would Stout use? Of yeah, the invisible, stabby fucker." Basically we should have just named the Avenger "Dan", and been done with it. I kinda thought about trying again a few months ago, but never did bother. It would be kinds interesting to try as a different type of character, since I only ever used the base soldier for Andromeda (and ME3, for that matter.) If I ever got that far, I'd probably just end up playing the original games for the nth time.

    My truck decided to die today. Fortunately it waited till I got home, instead of when I was on the 7th floor of a hospital parking garage. Weird thing was, the damn thing would start, but also wouldn't turn completely off. Finally had to disconnect the battery to shut everything down.
