  1. Damn, been caught up lately and havnt checked in the forums for a bit and missed my favorite fbg event. Need some kind of tracker for notifications on certain new topics. @badmojo1006 if you need me to set up the spreadsheet again let me know, I've done it the last few years and helps tracking who has or hasn't sent/received. And if you have any open spots left...
  2. So Brann knew all this was going to happen, right? He had that exact vision of Drogon flying over Kings Landing, so he knew she was going to burn the city down, and yet he didn't tell anyone. Wonder why?
  3. I have this exact same gambit every year. April bday, May mother's day, Anniversary the next month. I 100% feel your pain, and after it's gone, I feel relief for a few months, then March rolls around... My wife also doesn't have a hobby and is extremely cost conscience, making gift buying impossible...
  4. Was hoping we'd get some more backstory on the NK/three-eyed raven this episode, and exactly wtf Bran was doing. Was really hoping Bran would give some speech or explanation about how he's been setting it all up for this moment etc. For the last ~6 seasons, we've seen Bran claim to be training for his upcoming battle with the NK, and they've been hinting at something significant coming from that. And for what? So he could sit around and do... nothing? The way they handled the undead army was completely pointless. This whole series it's been about how them bickering over the throne, while ignoring the greater threat was going to be the end of them all, and now it's gone. I'm ok with Arya being the one to finish the NK. Her entire story was heavily linked to death and her becoming a super stealth assassin. But now that that's over, then this episode they immediately go back to where they were, fighting over the throne. So what was the point of the White Walkers then, if they just ended up being another stepping stone before they get to Cersei? It's just lazy that they built up this giant force, that used to represent what would happen if people didn't give up their greedy power struggles, only to have it disappear, and ultimately leads to nothing as we're now back to exactly where we were without them. "Ok, now that we've somehow manager to destroy this super powerful wizard-zombie and his horde of the undead, let's see if we can somehow manage to beat this old drunken lady and her stealth pirate" I know GRRM has said that the series will end similar to LOTR, with the hobbits having to retake the shire, and maybe that's what is going on here? But it just feels like a lot of time spent building up characters for moments was just thrown away.
  5. My 6 year old is a hockey fanatic and has an insane memory. To the point I've won quite a few beers at the Preds Arena by finding people wearing jerseys of opposing teams and challenging them that my 6 year old can beat them in a roster contest of their own team. (Say either a player or a number and the other person has to name the player/number). Well tonight we go to a restaurant and they have hockey on. "dad, this is my favorite playoff series" (of course, the preds have lost so now I'm confused) "um, why?" "it's the Sebastian Aho series!" (I can tell he's actually excited) "um, I know Aho plays for the hurricanes.." "yeah, and the Islanders have a Sebastian Aho too. Well, I guess he plays for the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, but it's the Islanders organization, so it counts." "... ???.. you're insane, how could you possibly know that" "NHL 19 of course." I'm going to win so many more beers next season.
  6. Went to the NFL draft activities and Panini had a booth set up where your kids could get their picture taken and had mock football cards emailed to you. Looks like they had hired a few models to work the booth. While the wife and I were waiting in line with the kids to get their picture made, she nudged me and asked if one of them looked familiar. Then she recognized her, it was Ashley K from The Challenge, and she is absolutely smoking 😍. You should definitely check out her instagram. My wife asked Ashley if she was doing any more of the challenges and she just kinda laughed and sad probably not.
  7. I became pretty close friends with someone over the last 6 years, and you would swear he had a perfect life. Good high paying job, a picture perfect family, wife and 3 kids. Bought a nice house, always posting pictures from various vacations they were taking. Our families got together often throughout the years for various events. I was someone he would usually confide in when something was going on with his wife/family/job etc and his wife and my wife became pretty close, too. Last week he checked himself into rehab and apparently has been taking a staggering amount of pain pills over the last 3+ years. I had no clue. Never noticed a change in his demeanor, attitude. Caught my wife and me completely by surprise. You would have won quite a bit of money off me if you bet me he was dealing with an addiction to opioids.
  8. I traded Wes Welker, Jason Witten and about 35% of our leagues FAAB for Aaron Hernandez. Literally never got to use him. That stung for a while and definitely made me more hesitant to pull the trigger down the road.
  9. I really feel like each kid needs to become comfortable with technology and learn how to code, or at the least, a good basic understanding. As technology continues to advance as rapidly as it is, it will only become more and more important in every field. For me personally, I was EE, did a year coop, hated it, changed to a math degree, took the P1 actuary exam, and got a job at an insurance company. Quickly switched into IT within the company, and am now considered a Cloud-Engineer/Software Developer.
  10. He keeps a list of all the dumb stuff he's said: https://www.dailywire.com/news/33362/so-heres-giant-list-all-dumb-stuff-ive-ever-done-ben-shapiro
  11. Late to the thread, but I hate to hear it GB hang in there man, I cant imagine what it's like, and if the only thing I can really do to help is read your posts about how you're doing and your thoughts, than I hope it at least provides some happiness and escape for you.
  12. In slow motion and still shots, seems pretty clear the head, neck, and torso are being affected by the facemask. https://twitter.com/MichaelDavSmith/status/1088051159946928131
  13. I was pretty heavy into basketball cards around 5th-9th grade, and some of my fondest memories, was when my dad would surprise me with a few packs of cards when he got home from work. He never collected them, but loved to open them and "let's see who we get!". It was always exciting and fun, and something I really enjoyed doing with my Dad. I had a few buddies that collected with me, and since we were kids, we made an agreement to just give each other rookie cards from their favorite teams. Since my dad is a big Lakers fan, I was a Lakers fan, and thus I have a ton of Kobe Bryant's rookie cards, all of which I put in hard plastic cases once I got them. I checked on ebay, and a few of the Kobe cards seem to be holding pretty good value. I have an absolute ton of other basketball cards as well, none of which are graded, and rarely are they going for more than like $6. My son is obsessed with all things Hockey, so starting last year he started putting together the upper deck sets. He is more interested in just completing the sets than any one player, so we've been just buying a few boxes/packs for christmas/birthdays until he gets down to around 10-15 missing, and use ebay to grab the randos he's missing. He just recently finished the UpperDeck 2018-2019 series 1 set and waiting for series 2 to be released. He keeps them in binders with clear sleeves as his favorite thing to do is read the stats on the backs of the cards. I'm glad that he's into it because now I get to do the same with him. I find myself stopping by a card store and grabbing a random pack or two and getting excited about opening them and seeing how excited he gets when he gets someone he's still missing.
  14. Did you ever get to see the test? I must have missed it. Was it multiple-choice, fill in the blank, etc?
  15. Interesting, so this sits behind the switch plate? Off the top of my head, if I had 3 of these could handle all my lights between my livingroom/dining room/ kitchen, which is just essentially one giant open floor plan and 5ish switches around the spaces controlling all the various lights.
