I'm king and they know it
When I snap my fingers everybody says show it
I'm hot and your not
But if you wanna hang with me I'll give it a shot

Top that, top that
You can do all you can but you'll never top that
Top that, top that
You can try until you blow but you'll never top that

Is that a mortal kombat code for the NES?
Posted By: burkemi

Re: Random Thoughts - 11/26/14 06:08 PM

From my own little personal bubble of reality - that's a code for Contra on the NES. But I also know that this code was used about 100 million times - so it might have some relevance to Mortal Kombat, but whether or not it actually does...I wouldn't know.

Because I am a huge gamer nerd ... Mortal Kombat was never released to the NES it released for the SNES in '93. The code was known as the "konami code" and was found in several konami games (including gradius and contra).

I had the notebook next to the system(s) too. (now I use my laptop)

Somehow I have to doubt that your status as a gamer nerd affected Konami's decision not to release Mortal Kombat to the NES console. wink

Dang ... I have been telling people for years that's why they didn't realease it on the NES. I thought for sure! wink

NES - SNES - I had them both. Like I can remember which one I played which game on back in the early 1990s. (I also still have my N64 smile )

Re: Random Thoughts - 11/26/14 08:58 PM

Mortal Kombat blood code was "Dullard" Down, Up, Left, Left, A, Right, Down. I have to look at my business cards to give out my direct phone line, but I haven't played in a decade at least and i still remember that.

In the news reporter's defense, many people in So Cal do not know what rain is. They certainly don't know how to drive in it.

Rain is that stuff that causes vegetation to grow and then die, providing nice, dry fuel for fire season. eek

Re: Random Thoughts - 12/04/14 03:09 PM

Because it's normally sunny and dry, so having a change is appreciated. But it's supposed to clear up overnight and the sun should come out tomorrow. Which is good, because 4 days of grey are about all I can take.

There are a significant number of online businesses designed to store passwords, challenge question answers, and all sorts of other information for e-estate planning. I was just thinking about this type of thing yesterday. I wonder if they can also remote-wipe your browser history too. I was thinking about what would happen if I up and kicked it. My wife wouldn't be able to get into Netflix, change the utility billing, all sorts of nightmares! (she'd get over me passing, I'm sure, but not being able to watch her favorite shows would be a total bummer)

I also like that you can set up emails to go out after your death. I'd set them up for like 3 years later to go to people I didn't like with haunting, menacing comments.

Yes, in the end, someone has to trigger things to go out, which is a bit of a flaw and requires someone that's either in the dark about the results of initiating that sequence, or someone as sadistic as you.

I saw services like this years ago. Most of them had a 'dead man switch.' The service would send you an email, text, whatever; and if you didn't indicate you were still alive (click the email link, for example) after so long it sent the messages automatically. I could see that backfiring terribly.

Re: Random Thoughts - 12/12/14 02:55 PM

One or two folks, yep.


Is it weird that I had to ask the female construction worker to step out of the locker room while I showered this morning? She acknowledged me, I said I'd only be 5-10 mins, she nodded and went back to working. Eventually, turned back and said "Oh, do you want me to step out?" Yeah, given that the shower curtains are see-through and you're in direct line of sight from where I'll be, that might be best to prevent it being pretty awkward for us both.

Re: Random Thoughts - 12/12/14 04:27 PM

You should have offered to keep the curtain open for a certain amount of money and she could stay and watch.

Re: Random Thoughts - 12/12/14 04:29 PM

Posted By: 'Lil Freak!

Re: Random Thoughts - 12/12/14 04:34 PM

Doesn't matter--should be asking if she was packing cash. Shower peepshow. Close the curtain every 30 seconds until she deposits more cash.

Re: Random Thoughts - 12/12/14 04:40 PM

I'll hold onto that idea for later.

I cannot attest to her appearance, I only have eyes for my wife.

That being said, she would not fit the image of what you might conjure as a typical female construction worker.

Would 1 person or 2 people get credited for something like a high 5 when it takes 2 people to accomplish?
Posted By: GuitarDude

Re: Random Thoughts - 12/22/14 08:56 PM

I suppose it depends on the effort of each person. If both people slap 5 it is a joint effort. If one person merely holds up a hand and the other person slaps it, the slapper, rather than the slappee should get the credit. But the slappee might deserve some credit if that person initiated the high 5. And it is still rude to leave someone hanging.

9 important facts to remember as you get older

Number 9 - Death is the number 1 killer in the world.

Number 8 - Life is sexually transmitted.

Number 7 - Good health is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die.

Number 6 - Men have two emotions: hungry and h***y, and they can't tell them apart. If you see a gleam in his eyes, make him a sandwich.

Number 5 - Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day. Teach a person to use the Internet and they won't bother you for weeks, months, maybe years.

Number 4 - Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying in the hospital, dying of nothing.

Number 3 - All of us could take a lesson from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism.

Number 2 - In the 60's, people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is weird, and people take Prozac to make it normal.

Number 1 - Life is like a jar of jalapeno peppers. What you do, or eat, today might burn your bum tomorrow.

Well, since we don't have hard drives which can go bad, it's not much of a concern! If the machine dies, it can be swapped out in a matter of 30 seconds and you can move on like it never happened. They have terrible computing speed though, and running something like the security camera software takes everything it's got.

Got our first snow fall this morning (6 inches of the light fluffy type). My truck is in the garage, so I borrowed my dad's. Glad I had his, it's a 4x4, made it to work no problems. My truck would have like a bobsled ride.

They're only good when they work! We inherited ours from the house's previous owner, and I had started it up a couple times in prep for winter, but last night it wouldn't go for me. May have been the -10 temps, not sure what the deal was. Shoveled, then again this morning. Didn't even bother trying the blower again.

Now that I'm a homeowner, I finally get why people have kids. Mowing, vacuuming, and shoveling snow.

Last year at this time we had over a foot of snow. This year (season) we got our first snowfall on Sunday, about 2 inches at best. Hopefully we will not get the 100 inches + that we did last year. Very cold here though, in the single digits.

I tried to get to the bookstore as soon as I could in order to buy used for my required books as much as possible. Even still I don't think I ever spent more that a couple of hundred on books. Granted, that was 20 years ago. My niece paid $800 for her 1st semester books and almost $500 for this semester. crazy

What if all the texting and twitter way of writing (Wut R U Doing?) actually ends up making the English language better

Hear me out, English is kind of a weird combination of a bunch of other languages with rules that are inconsistently applied and letters that sound like other letters and have multiple sounds. What if we really did just start writing in the simplest way possible? What's the drawback to making it simple if it still gets the point across? Would it make the language easier to learn and actually help communication?

SP you may be on to something!! My 6 year old is having a hard time learning to read. He likes firm rules that are followed every time. Unfortunately our language has LOTS of rules that are followed SOMETIMES. Poor kid struggles trying to understand how live and live are spelled the same and pronounced differently. Maybe spelling foneticly phonetically would simplify things!!

I'm deeply sorry we failed to secure your garbage can. I will mail your kid a "get well" balloon as soon as possible!

Both the Brown's and the Houston's agreed with it. They claim as a way to keep mother and daughter together.

Other than that, I've seen very little surrounding the actual event..pre/during/post other than the BF is being investigated.

Posted By: CompliantOkie

Re: Random Thoughts - 02/10/15 08:31 PM

Supposedly the celebration turned violent and cops were called. Someone ended up with stitches.

Seems strange to me too that they would remove life support on the anniversary of Whitney's death. But the whole darn thing is strange. Pretty sure if my mother had died from a drug overdose in a bathtub, I would not ingest drugs (allegedly) and then climb in a bathtub.

Wig-wiggy-wiggy-wiggy-wiggy-wack!

On the way to the clubs we pass a Dairy Queen
You stop 'cause you know how much it means to me
We take the backseats out of your minivan
Now we roll like a Hummer or a full-sized sedan

Now park this thing real close to the club
And feel free to break out the golden lady rub
And hold my hand when we approach the bouncer
I don't wanna look like a hungry camp counselor

'Cause this is how we go out
In my town, roll down the windows
Let Reba crack the bass
Wave to the Hot Pocket peoples with the smiles on their face
Waiting and wanting just a good time on the dancefloor
Shake it if you wanna hear more

Stomp once to hear Britney
And twice for Beyonce
Now three times if you wanna hear me get nasty
Ooh, girl get nasty

All I wanna do is zig-a-zig-ah!
Little louder now 'cause I can't hear ya
You get me hotter than a stick of hot glue
And I'm scrapbooking everything we do

Ring ring ring, that's my cell
Bring the bling when I sing, of course I will
Hand it to me to get the people shocked
Myspace from my lovers, can you hear my beat talking?
It says I love you!

I arrive looking good, and thankfully
My pants do stretch which allow me to be
Free on the dancefloor but not a cheap date
I pour the body glitter on 'cause I never hesitate

Now my master plan is to shock then tease
Break every heart then bust my knees
Proving and grooving; my brand new dance
Might just be the greatest in the land

Then the crowd says, "Ahahaha"
When I do my scissor kicks
And then the crowd screams, "Oohoohoohoohoo"
When I do my lady flips

'Cause this is how we go out
In my town, roll down the windows
Let Reba crack the bass
Wave to the Hot Pocket peoples with the smiles on their face
Waiting and wanting just a good time on the dancefloor
Shake it if you wanna hear more

Stomp once to hear Britney
And twice for Beyonce
Now three times if you wanna hear me get nasty
Ooh, girl get nasty

All I wanna do is zig-a-zig-ah!
Little louder now 'cause I can't hear ya
You get me hotter than a stick of hot glue
And I'm scrapbooking everything we do

Ring ring ring, that's my cell
Bring the bling when I sing, of course I will
Hand it to me to get the people shocked
Myspace from my lovers, can you hear my beat talking?
It says I love you!

It's 2 o'clock and the club is closed
Everyone's heading home, I'll see you next weekend
Then I get a tip about a party
Three blocks away (let's go!)

'Cause this is how we go out
In my town, roll down the windows
Let Reba crack the bass
Wave to the hype, like the people with a smile on my face(?)
Waiting and wanting just a good time on the dancefloor
Shake it if you wanna hear more

Stomp once for Britney
Stomp once for Britney
Now twice for Beyonce
Now twice for Beyonce
Now three times if you wanna hear me get nasty

All I wanna do is zig-a-zig-ah!
Little louder now 'cause I can't hear ya

Re: Random Thoughts - 03/02/15 07:25 PM

I did a combo of that one and Alton Brown's recipe and scaled up. Did your batch end up the consistency of a normal berry jam? I'm afraid mine will be slightly runny but I plan on using it in sauces and rubs so that shouldn't be too big of a problem. The fruit came from my brother's tree in Phoenix so I owe him a jar and a few to friends. Can't wait to roast a chicken with the marmalade this weekend.

This is the recipe I've been using the last 8-9 years. The Cost Pluses in Phx no longer carry the suggested bottles, but I've found you can use a litre flip top bottle and be the life of the party.

You'll still have the juice with which to contend, though. So perhaps canning some lemon curd would be an option?

Re: Random Thoughts - 03/03/15 05:55 PM

The finicky poodle ate her dinner Monday and then I picked her up and was carrying her around (because she was being clingy/needy). I was bouncing her and then put her on the floor. She ran over to the rug and threw up. Never bounce a poodle with a full belly.

I dunno...we still haven't ruled out the possibility of a monkey getting loose in the mens room and being the culprit of aforementioned flung poo....

One day a florist went to a barber for a haircut. After the cut, he

asked about his bill, and the barber replied, "I cannot accept money from

you, I'm doing community service this week."

The florist was pleased and left the shop.

When the barber went to open his shop the next morning, there was a

"thank you" card and a dozen roses waiting for him at his door.

Later, a cop comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his

bill,the barber again replied, "I cannot accept money from you, I'm

doing community service this week." The cop was happy and left the

shop.

The next morning when the barber went to open up, there was a

"thank you " card and a dozen donuts waiting for him at his door.

Then a member of government came in for a haircut, and when he went to pay his

bill the barber again replied, "I cannot accept money from you. I'm

doing community service this week."

The member of government was very happy and left the shop.

The next morning, when the barber went to open up, there were a dozen

members of government lined up waiting for a free haircut.

Yep. I keep goldfish in ours, too. Of the last batch of 5/$1 fishies that went into the tank, there is 1 left. It's now probably almost 3 years old and longer than my hand.

It always hate it when we've lost the larger ones for any reason. We haven't put in fish in the tank for quite a while, so now I'm excited to have a new batch o' pets. I seriously love to watch them grow and I like that we have fishies in different colors like some white-ish and some more gold and some gold with white. I didn't see any with black in this batch. Those are the prettiest, in my opinion. Must be why I wanted some of the Koi. They had prettier colorings.

Mine is 150-ish gallons - I don't remember exactly. I figure it's still cleaner than the puddles and ponds they will drink out of if given the choice. Very rarely will a critter pick a sparkly clean bucket over a nice mossy, fishy natural source.

I'm really enjoying these Old Navy boxer briefs. They're cut low enough so they don't ride under my ribcage like some pairs that I have to fold the band over two or three times, the elastic band doesn't choke my mid-section like a python, and there's enough spandex to keep stuff in place. Now as long as the legs don't creep up and if they survive boot camp tonight I think I might have found some real winners.

Why is it that nail clippings are so gross once they are clipped? They aren't gross when they are still attached to the fingers. It's kind of like hair. It's not gross when it's still on someones head, but the minute it drops on your food or gets tangled in your fingers in the swimming pool, it makes your skin crawl.

Clippings don't bother me, but hair does. What's gross is doing burpees, mountain climbers, push ups, and what not where we are down on the gym floor at the Y. There's always hair (sometimes all kinds of hair eek) and I start puffing down on the floor to try and blow the hair away from me. What's really gross is when they turn on the fans and a giant hair clump comes blowing out from a corner and starts twirling across the floor like a hairy tumbleweed. Bleh sick.

Hey Wolfy - be careful. There are many here who are almost that age or older.

I think that was tragic. I can see the man driving and not knowing where he's going and putting his faith in the GPS - and then watching his wife burn. Very sad.

Re: Random Thoughts - 03/31/15 09:21 PM

That is so very sad. I am 5 months shy of that age, and I would hope if I saw barriers up on a road it would make me stop and think before traveling any farther. I wonder if they had been in this country for that long and just didn't understand what was going on?

I had a GPS send me left at a light, circle around this street, then take a right and at the next light take another right and the restaurant was just a few 100 ft away. I saw where we were at and realized the first light it told us to turn at we could have went straight a new feet and turned right into the restaurant! We were so busy trying to follow the GPS we never looked up and saw the restaurant!

Re: Random Thoughts - 03/31/15 09:32 PM

I'm pretty sure there's a warning at the beginning of GPS that says it's not guaranteed to be 100% accurate and that you still need to pay actual attention to the roads and surroundings including other traffic and obeying things like stop lights.

I'm not sure why he wanted my opinion on college sports reporting.

I worked with someone like that - we had two different "scripts" if it was an internal or external call. She used the external script for everything. But I think she did it on purpose because it aggravated the ever-living daylights out of another co-worker.

I also worked with two employees who sat about 20 feet apart. One would call the other, and both would be on speaker phone. Since I sat in the middle, I could hear the speaker, and also hear them coming through the receiver on the other end. Nice stereo effect.

The one girl said that she actually did like the "bad boy" type of guy, so my friend (who is a world class smart-***), asked her, "So, someone who runs around the house with scissors?"

You do not drive? I can say most drivers in my town do not run red lights but we have a few yahoos that like to think they made it on the yellow even when they are not even in the intersection yet when it goes red. And to make it even safer they try not to look at the other drivers on the road lest they realize they are driving like a (not good driver)!!

Come to Washington...we have bees...millions of them on I-5:

A semitruck rolled early Friday, spilling a load of honeybees on the Interstate 5 median at the Interstate 405 interchange near Lynnwood.

Beekeepers were at the crash site within an hour of the 3:30 a.m. crash to try to round up the honeybees, according to the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT).



As temperatures warmed and the bees became agitated, firefighters killed the bees by spraying a mixture of foam and water on the hives that hadn’t been recovered by beekeepers, said Sgt. Ben Lewis of the State Patrol.


“Everybody’s been stung,” Lewis said.

I have long suspected that they guy who drives the garbage truck in our neighborhood dislikes me. I have tried to say hello on a couple of occasions when I am walking the dog and have gotten a blank stare. I've seen him talk to the other neighbors on occasion. This morning when surveying the neighborhood after he went through - the lid of every garbage can was neatly placed on top of their can while mine was laying 6 feet away in the driveway. Maybe it's time to switch companies, but then I would be faced with a year or so of forgetting when the new garbage day is....

One Third of Households Making More Than $75,000 Live Paycheck to Paycheck

Among U.S. households earning more than $75,000 a year, nearly a third live paycheck-to-paycheck at least part of the time, a survey by SunTrust Bank has found. The same is true for more than one-fourth of households with annual income topping $100,000. Forty-three percent of middle-class survey respondents said they do not save enough or are unsure if they are on track. Some low saving rates are related to poor spending habits, with many households admitting they indulge too much on leisure. The study did not factor in details such as family size, healthcare needs, or student loans -- all of which could make it more difficult to live on $75,000 a year. Stagnant wages have made it more difficult to keep up with increased living expenses, healthcare, and tuition. People may be able to save more, however, if they have a better idea of where their money is going and if they have a specific goal in mind, such as buying a house or planning a vacation.

The more you make, the more you spend. Having a high paying job doesn't make you financially intelligent, which we see regularly in our collections department, as I'm sure most other financials do!

I feel like I'd enjoy living paycheck to paycheck on that salary more than I do living on my current one and being financially "responsible" with my money though. I'd certainly drink higher class stuff! laugh

Wells Fargo Looks for Non-Traditional Compliance Hires

Wells Fargo Chief Compliance Officer Yvette Hollingsworth says increased enforcement, regulatory changes, and new sanctions have put compliance staff in high demand at banks. However, she says the perception that "banks are bad" has put a damper on compliance recruitment, leading to a shortage of candidates that has prompted her to "think more creatively about talent sourcing" and look past traditional compliance roles. She says she invited an engineer who had a negative view about banks to coffee so she could explain that banks are large institutions that help ordinary people achieve their goals. After getting him to look past issues like foreclosure, she notes that he recently sent her his resume. Among other things, Hollingsworth recently hired PhDs for the first time and is looking to hire other quantitative types to analyze streams of transaction data to help the bank identify suspicious activity.

yes, the double down seems to come around sporadically, which has caused it's overall rating to fall

if possible, I would get one of each with a large mashed potatoes and extra gravy for dipping.....on a light meal day

A poet, a pawn and a king
I've been up and down and over and out
And I know one thing:
Each time I find myself flat on my face,
I pick myself up and get back in the race

RIP Francis.

3:20 p.m. CDT

A North Texas man has drowned when water being released from a dam overtook his kayak.

Chad Lorance with the Tarrant Regional Water District said Tuesday that 29-year-old Joshua Reed of Fort Worth was on the water with others when they disregarded signs Saturday and entered a restricted part of the Trinity River adjacent to the main dam for Eagle Mountain Lake.

Lorance says water was being released from the dam to prevent the lake from overflowing from recent rains.

The Tarrant County medical examiner's office says Reed died of accidental drowning.

Reed's body was recovered Sunday. He is among the nine weather-related deaths over the weekend in Texas.

I would have keyed more off the part where he chooses to ignore the signs and put himself in danger rather the death resulting from the storm. (I know , I know personal responsibility is not PC these days, sorries)

Recipe, please? smile

Re: Random Thoughts - 05/28/15 07:53 PM

So easy and completely made up by me out of dinner desperation one evening.

I roast boneless/skinless chicken breasts drizzled with a little olive oil and seasoned with salt and pepper in a 375 degree oven until they’re almost done. If I’m not using them immediately I just bag them and stick them in the fridge after they’ve cooled.
If using immediately, I shred them into a skillet and dump the juices out of the roasting sheet into the skillet. Set over medium/high heat until the chicken is fully cooked. I add some chicken stock if the chicken gets too dry and allow it to reduce down. Then I add chili powder, cumin, garlic and a little paprika to taste. I’ve also used Old El Paso taco seasoning mix and it works perfectly and lends that traditional tex/mex taco flavor. Then I add a can of Ro-Tel. I’ve been using original because one of my boys doesn’t like really spicy food but it would be perfect with the hot Ro-Tel. If I’m making a smaller batch and don’t want to use a whole can of Ro-Tel, then I will instead add some regular salsa. I’m currently in love with Herdez salsa. I’ve been wanting to add some salsa verde so I will try that next time. Then of course you can use whatever type of tortillas you want. I love corn but the kids like crunchy and hubby likes flour so I’ve usually got all three. Top with whatever you like on your tacos. I like cheese and sour cream, one kid eats them plain, other kid puts cheese and a spicy ranch sauce and hubby eats whatever I hand him!! It really is such a fast meal and you can adjust it to your liking! Enjoy!!!
And the leftovers were great!

I added it gradually to Lucy's diet but she would eat all of the new food first then the old food. I tried that with the cat, but he would just eat the new food and leave the old sit in his bowl and cry for more of the new.

I found that out several years ago as well. To get the full experience, you need to hit a patch of it with the weed eater, mince it up, and have it land on your exposed legs, arms, and hands. I have never been more uncomfortable in my life and it wasn't until I was fully recovered that I realized what it was.

Yes... we did a bunch of landscaping over Memorial Day weekend and it must have been in the weeds I pulled. At first I thought (because we had dug into some brown ants) I thought maybe I had some super itchy ant bites.. or bites from some other critters... on my arm. But then it spread to my legs, neck and abdomen like wildfire about a week later. About 2 days after that, I called the doc.

Well, took me about 30 seconds to find the controls that allowed me to unlock doors, change the schedules for what was locked, when, etc. Being the good compliance person I am, I of course reported this to him...right after I unlocked the server room door and discovered it triggered a 30 second long constant beeping!

Funny Matt.

Years ago I went to a branch of our bank in a local grocery store. They had a computer for customer use in the lobby (the branch wasn't closed off at night. I got curious to see where people had been surfing the net. I was told our firewall would prevent anything 'unsavory'. Well, the history showed a bunch of porn sites and I tried to remove them and they kept popping up. I was embarrassed, but it showed the vulnerability and the computer was removed the next day. The security video showed the grocery store stockers and cleaners viewing this during the wee hours of the morning.

TV Land pulls ‘Dukes’ — Confederate flag a no-no

The network declined to comment on why the episodes were removed, but the southern-set show has come under fire recently for its depiction of the Confederate flag, which is emblazoned on the hood of the Duke Boys’ signature 1969 orange Dodge Charger.

The Dukes of Hazzard” originally aired on CBS from 1979-85 and followed the adventures of cousins Bo Derek (John Schneider) and Luke Derek (Tom Wopat) who raced around town in their trusty stock car.

Have they ever watched the show?

They said to make sure you go in and wipe down all of the touchable surfaces with a bleach wipe, and it will cut down the likelihood of infection by 80%.

We had a dog (Mitzi) when I was a kid that got scratched by the cat and ended up having a bot fly lay an egg in the wound. The sore didn't go away until my dad squeezed a big ol' larva out of her.

We have lived in our house a year and only have talked to the neighbors a couple of times. The one time the lady informed me that I would be fined by the city if I blew my grass clippings in the street.

OK Walden,
Let me pose this question to you then. I think our new neighbors are moving in. (There is a cluster of houses, each a couple of acres apart - far enough away that you can't quite tell what is going on.) At what point do I drop in with an apple pie to welcome them to the "neighborhood"? Like I said, I "think" they have moved in. They planned on rehabbing the place, while theirs in the suburbs was on the market, but their place sold in 36 hours. But they are still rehabbing. Do I still just drop by? Don't want to seem nosy. But don't want to seem unwelcoming either. What to do? What to do?

When we moved into our house last year, we made the rounds of our immediate neighbors and those across the street. Every single one of them was really suspicious like we were bill collectors or something, didn't offer last names, let alone a pie! We've been there over a year now, haven't had a conversation with most of them since then, just the guy we share a fence with once in a while.

QCL, if they don't graciously accept a pie, they can shove off! laugh I'd stop by on a Saturday afternoon, or some time you see people out and about. Of course, if they're cradling the shotgun when you're heading up the lane, maybe don't push it. smirk

Not Walden but I'll chime in. Our neighbors are about 1/2 mile away. I planned on taking over a pan of brownies and introducing myself a couple weeks after they closed on the house. They took a rather unfriendly stance so I decided against it. I do think 2 weeks is an appropriate time frame. Take them a dessert and welcome them. Sounds really nice!

Yes, take over your apple pie and welcome them to the neighborhood. It will make them happy unless they are from mars or something......

Re: Random Thoughts - 07/08/15 04:20 PM

as I was still moving in, stuff in my truck, movers finishing up, the retired lady accross the street brought over homemade blueberry muffins

I'm normally skeptical but I figured it was from an old lady and I really like blueberry muffins so I dug in, they were awesome

In the few years I've been there she has left homemade cookies in my mail box (delicious) and walked over with a fresh homemade apple pie one other time

I happily snarfed all of it down, in fact, I downed the whole pie in one sitting, it was my entire dinner that day

Re: Random Thoughts - 07/08/15 04:23 PM

When new neighbors moved in behind us a few years ago, my wife took over cookies. The woman grunted something and closed the door in my wife's face. She has never spoken to us, not even "hi". I've gotten the husband to say a few words.

Just the opposite with our neighbors next to us. My wife baked cookies and took them over. They thought that was nice, so they made us cupcakes. Then they thought we shoveled their snow (must have been the neighbor on the other side) so they baked us something again. Since we didn't deserve it, my wife baked again. At that point, the two women got together and agreed to put an end to the baking before we all gained 20 pounds.

Other than the one neighbor, everyone is friendly. It's common to help each other shovel snow. Everyone waves if you drive by. We have a neighborhood facebook page and a website, and those help people to get acquainted.

And take the pie back with me!
Seriously though, they bought the house 2 summers ago, and were renting it out. They come out to the sticks once a month to check on the property, and so we have met them and they are not total strangers, but now that they're officially part of the neighborhood I wanted to do something nice.

My brother found out you can make a very intense explosive out of nothing but sparklers and tape... there is a four-foot diameter hole in his back yard. (one of his friends brought this knowledge, and executed the plan, viewing was from a safe distance and nobody was hurt)

Regulation is useless. Fireworks are illegal in Illinois, and yet my wife and I stood out on our deck and watch fireworks being shot from a half dozen locations within a quarter mile. You'd need a few hundred cops in town to try to enforce the ban.

Tom Cruise is too old to be a fighter pilot.
Posted By: edAudit

Re: Random Thoughts - 07/27/15 02:21 PM

The pilot is Cmdr. Tim Kurtz, and at 54, he is acknowledged as the oldest fighter pilot in the Navy. But that information is difficult to check, according to a report in the New Orleans Advocate, because the Navy does not keep a listing of its pilots by age. Andrew Thomas, public affairs officer for the Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base New Orleans, said that fighter pilots are a pretty close-knit group, so if they say Kurtz is the oldest, then it's probably true

Mom's cooking chicken and collard greens

And Santa put gifts under Christmas trees
Decorate the house with lights at night
Snow's on the ground, snow white so bright
In the fireplace is the yule log
Beneath the mistle toe as we drink egg nog
The rhymes you hear are the rhymes of Darryl's

Re: Random Thoughts - 08/05/15 07:52 PM

From the interwebs:

Quote:
An earlier start date gives teachers more instructional time before statewide assessment tests in the spring. Several experts agreed that this is one of the biggest factors pushing calendars back.
Beginning in August allows students to complete the first semester before the December holiday break, rather than taking tests and turning in big projects after two weeks off. Teachers don't have to spend time reviewing material in January when they should be starting new lessons. Those were some of the reasons given by the Los Angeles Unified School District when it moved up its start date in 2012.
Starting early allows for a fall break in September or October and a winter break around February, in addition to breaks around Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter. Teachers are happier and kids behave better when they have more breaks throughout the year, said Rebecca Kaye, the Atlanta Public Schools policy and governance adviser, who makes the yearly calendar. "Learning is hard work, and teaching is hard work, and people need breaks," Kaye said. "We have gotten feedback from our employees that they need that time."
When you start after Labor Day and end school in June, that last month is simply not taken as seriously. "That end of the year is perceived as being time that is sometimes not used to the maximum value," Kaye said. And in fact, when Atlanta schools ended in June, a lot of kids simply didn't show up after Memorial Day. "Even though we were having school after Memorial Day, people had it in their minds that school ended. It may seem ridiculous, but that's what happened."
Many graduating students and staff members take summer courses at colleges and universities. Ending school around Memorial Day creates fewer conflicts for them.

Don't we all need breaks? I get 2 weeks off every year. 4 if you count sick time I accrue each month. Sometimes I really question my choice not to give in and become a teacher. I realize it's a very difficult job, and one I do not wish to have, but to complain about not getting more time off is ridiculous. Between summer, spring break, fall break and Christmas break, they're already off 4 months.

Posted By: thomasj

Re: Random Thoughts - 08/06/15 02:55 PM

There are so many nice bucks coming in, it's unreal. There is one that is just a 4 point, but he has big antlers and a big spread. Here in PA only junior hunters can shoot a buck with less than 3 points on one side. I will have to be careful if I see this 4 point because he looks rack looks much bigger.

The fawns are growing so fast, some are almost as big as their mothers. We saw a mom with two fawns and what must have been last year's fawn (now a small 6 point) on camera. She was trying to run him off and keep him away from the little ones.

In the past couple of weeks we've seen tons of deer, some black bears, porcupine, raccoon, turkeys, and an elk. I am hoping that the thoughts of all these bucks being in the woods will motivate my 12 year old son to be more patient and stay out past lunchtime this year. He was fortunate to have tagged an 8 point early on the second day last year.

Ten days in and they still haven't reopened. Cleaning crews and what not to ensure things are safe.

So currently, there's nowhere in town to get authentic Methican.

Do you expect them to just throw out the supplies? It takes time to make all the rest of the meth.

Re: Random Thoughts - 08/14/15 04:47 PM

I'd be surprised if they are able to reopen, depending on the type of cook that was happening there. I've heard stories of meth labs in foreclosed properties where the house had to be torn down (and handled as hazardous waste) because it could not be decontaminated.

If it was one of those new "Shake and Bake" cooks, maybe they could clean that up, but if it was a full blown lab it would be tough.

Were they using traditional psuedo or was it a P2P cook? (I've started re-watching Breaking Bad from the beginning recently...)
Posted By: Matt_B

Re: Random Thoughts - 08/14/15 05:16 PM

LE has never confirmed any cooking even occurred there, only that "materials used for producing meth" were present at the site when they responded to the suspicious persons report that morning. They're concerned with lawsuits, I'm sure, but who knows what the real details are.

Based on the pictures of the arrested fellows, I'd highly doubt their stuff was blue. They looked like they were breaking the "Never get high on your own supply" rule.

I will never understand someone who gets into an elevator going down, and the elevator already has people in it, and the ground floor button is lit - why do people feel they need to push that button again?

Do you not trust that everyone else on the elevator has pushed the ground floor button already? Do you think we all just hopped on for a joy ride? You decide you can't trust the already lit button that the elevator is, indeed, going to stop at the bottom floor? And especially when you have to push me back a little bit to make SURE you PUSH THAT BUTTON, do not be surprised when I give you that "You IDIOT" look.

The right way is rarely the easy way.

But the easy way is a lot more likely to get you smacked in the face!

Because it is not truly the right way.

It is the government way, however.

There is a difference between the right way to do something and the way that is dictated by government bureaucracy.

Wife is on the phone "There is a giant spider on the front porch. GIANT! It's hairy! It's on the package. I'm going to light the whole thing on fire!"


Freak, I think there might be something dead for you, soon. But it probably is more like...dime sized, not crazy big like the ones you prefer.

With all the software implementation issues banks are having, and all the unresolved questions, I absolutely certain they will push implementation back to January 1.

I'm also absolutely certain that there are unicorns, flying monkeys and a pot of gold at the end of every rainbow.

I was fast-forwarding through commercials on my DVR last night and caught a quick glimpse that Whopper. I had to go back and see if they were just messing around with effects for Halloween but no, the bun is black.

This opens a pretty funky door. What's next, red buns for Valentine's Day? Green buns for St. Patrick's Day? Red, white and blue for July 4th?

I believe they released this Halloween whopper last year in Japan and not only was the bun black, but so was the cheese.

It might taste good, but if I see black cheese then there is not way I could even try it.
