  1. Working from home is a challenge if your internet is dead the entire day
  2. This, I'll get one of the xbox versions, hopefully close to launch. Dunno which one, though. This might be the first time I don't get a Playstation since PS1. I've barely turned my PS4 on in the last year or two.
  3. Texas Roadhouse is one of two restaurants where I've walked out without paying my bill. This was forever ago, and I don't remember what the problem was, but I do remember they didn't even bother to try charging me.
  4. Culver’s is deeply weird to me. There’s one about five miles from my house. I’ve had their food a few times and liked it. Thing is, I’ve never seen another one anywhere. It’s like the thing went through a wormhole and wound up on south Austin
  5. Tethering unconscious patients' arms is standard medical practice. Folks in that situation tend to move their extremities about more than you'd think, and not at all in a controlled manner. Since they also tend to be surrounded by a lot of wires, tubes, etc that don't do well when pulled on, the tethers turn out to be the lesser of two evils. I watched my unconscious father pull a feeding tube two days after emergency brain surgery, when he was briefly untethered. Doesn't mean that they shouldn't move you around for four days. And really, really doesn't mean that gunshot victims need
  6. Not much there. Basically it's "Hey! Remember Dragon Age? We're making another one. And we're using technology to do it. Also, we have beards now."
  7. It's gonna be so surprising when there's an explosion of cases in small/medium sized towns all over the south and midwest over the next few weeks.
  8. If a small group of some of the worst people on the planet conspire to steal a significant amount of money that a larger group of truly awful people contributed with the express intent of doing evil, who is the bad guy? Somehow this is the second court case in New York in less than a week where I’ve asked myself that question.
  9. Texas still thinks they're gonna have 25K people in the stands, so that variety of lunacy is hardly unique.
  10. Looks like they finally found a way to make RDR online interesting.
  11. I pretty much swore em off years ago, but I bet the average college football message board is fun this week.
  12. Lawrence probably has the least to gain of anybody here. Assuming they cancel the season, the next NFL draft will start with "With the first pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, the New England Patriots select Trevor Lawrence, Quarterback, Clemson." And you just know el Presidente just saw the "We want to play" headline, and doesn't understand the significance of the players organizing, or that they are asking for more than the season to start.
  13. It took a whole 15 minutes for the Texas and A&M are going to totally play this year!!! bullshit to start. CFB media just cannot stop with that shit. 2 months after world war 3: "Well Dave, nuclear winter has set in. The remainder of society will be living in bunkers for the next 50 years. Will this be what finally restarts the Texas/A&M series?"
  14. Insert overused Dodgeball gif here.
  15. I think the NCAA and the schools are absolutely more worried about the players organizing than they are about COVID. That said, I don't think cancelling the season helps them much in that regard. The players will have fewer distractions without full practice/game schedules, so I expect they'll have a better chance to get organized. Not playing this year also will require the NCAA to actually be flexible on eligibility requirements for once. They'll have to figure out how to handle this year's seniors, junior eligible guys in next year's draft and the incoming recruiting class.
  16. Seeing how badly baseball is playing out, even with much smaller rosters and more controlled environments, I don't see any way CFB makes it long, if it starts at all. The level of lunacy is sometimes almost comical. It's hard to know whether some of these schools are fooling themselves, or they know they're screwed and are just trying to make things sound good. Texas, like a lot of other schools, is still planning for half full stadiums. Meanwhile, they've told the students that parties, whether on campus or off, are banned. I kind of assume that they realize there will be at least a
  17. Was grilling steaks last night and got this stuck in my head. My five year old thought it was great and tried to sing along with me. For some reason, my wife didn't enjoy it as much as we did.
  18. Needs a 5000 word Barnwell analysis for each one. Tell him to get on it.
  19. That's the basic truth that everybody involved seems to be working as hard as possible to ignore. Texas still thinks they're going to play with 50% crowd capacity here, where the cases are 10x what they were before we started reopening.
  20. Well, Moscow is a long way away, so you're probably right there.
  21. I don’t think announcers are actually capable of shutting up. They’ve tried it a few times in Australian Rules Football this year with the empty stadiums, and inevitably they’ll start talking again within 10 seconds. I just don’t think they know how to be quiet.
  22. Probably. They actually had a showing for the neighborhood after everybody freaked out about it. Didn't go, though. Yeah, Austin is pretty much mini Dallas at this point, with a "weird" theme park around South Congress. The market around us isn't really insane. My parents house in north Austin is probably worth 12-13 times what they paid for it. The area they lived where I was born is even crazier. My dad used to shoot rats in the garage during commercial breaks. Now there are multi million dollar houses on that street.
  23. It might be out there somewhere in the ether. I think Foywonder actually had a review of it on his site way back when.
  24. I was going to ask where the hell you lived till you mentioned rural Illinois, and then all became clear. Spent 3 weeks there (southwest of Joliet). Never was sure if it's legally required there to include n***** in every sentence, or just strongly recommended I don't need next door to tell me about my neighbors. I have the news. I've probably posted some of this before. I live on what looks like a relatively normal residential street. Maybe 30 houses total. All these folks have lived on on our street - Charity director who stole a shit ton of cash, then fled to Venezuela http
