  1. I mean you kind of were, but also against the other 12 out of 14 face coverings that the article claims reduce transmission. vindication! so great. sorry, but we still do not believe you are the smartest guy in the room.
  2. lol at claiming vindication over this as if you were crusading against neck gaiters. that's awesome.
  3. Puffing your chest out because you won't allow a soft piece of cloth to touch your face for half an hour. lol.
  4. good on the LA gov't and Orgeron for that. seems silly and S-E-C, S-E-C at face value, but i'm sure there is no small number of folks that don't want the government to tell them what to do, don't want the press to tell them what to do, but they'll listen if coach O's talking.
  5. we can start with claiming he has possibly spent thousands of hours reading about this (over the past month?) when we have yet to hit 2000 hours in the year 2020. i know who he is, was going to give it a chance, but didn't read any farther. I'd get my number crunching elsewhere.
  6. reminds me of when i was dating a girl from memphis in college. we were watching jeopardy and final jeopardy was something like "this city's airport is the largest volume cargo airport in the world, handling X million lbs (or parcels) per day" gf: "memphis!" ignorant 19 yo me: "ooh...i'm from memphis, so i'll guess my hometown" alex: "memphis, tennessee"
  7. I have moved my colloidal silver out of my safe deposit box into my home safe as it looks too early to tell. Unless I’m misinterpreting those posted numbers it looks like ~5700 outcomes are undetermined and of the ~240 outcomes that are determined over half are dead. But the recovered cases are gaining on dead which seems good. Setting aside any lack of faith in the reported numbers themselves, am I reading that right? 240 “completed cases” seems low.
  8. yeah, I know. we're agreeing...if you expect your insurance company to do something it typically starts with a claim. There is no scenario (as far as I know) where Nipsey's insurance company would demand that the other guy's insurance fix Nipsey's car. Nipsey's insurance would fix the car and demand reimbursement. That would start with a collision claim which he isn't covered for.
  9. I'm not an insurance guy, but deal with insurance claims periodically. An insurance guy could say for sure but it makes sense to me that it matters that he doesn't have collision insurance. He's filing a claim with his company that isn't part of his policy. Nipsey got hit. Nipsey needs to file a claim. if Nipsey has third party's insurance info he can file the claim directly with third party's insurance or file the claim with his insurance company who will work the claim and file a subrogation claim with the third party's insurance. Nipsey's insurance isn't typically going to play middle man to get the third party insurance to work the claim start to finish on his behalf. If that's how you want it done, you file the claim on the third party's insurance and they direct everything. Nipsey's insurance will work the claim, cut the checks, and seek reimbursement - but not if his policy (collision) doesn't cover it. If this isn't a collision claim what kind of claim would it be?
  10. this is hilarious. CNBC: "picture of the outlook preview pane with a penny next to the monitor or gtfo."
  11. No idea where that number came from. They’ve played like 90 times. Back when they first went to divisions AU’s two permanent cross division opponents were UGA and Florida because of the history.
  12. The bunker rules are mostly the same. Dude in my group was explaining it (poorly) a couple of weeks ago, and it didn’t make much sense. I think it amounts to just being able to move loose impediments. No practice swings or testing the surface.
  13. Rules question: they didn’t mention it or show a good angle but the ND guy that recovered that reversed fumble ran and jumped from OB to get the ball. whats it take for him to establish himself back in bounds? One foot, two feet, or does it matter? Looked like he probably got one down before touching the ball. Not sure about two. i may also be totally off. Testing out watching on Hulu and the dvr stuff kinda sucks so I didn’t run it back and watch again.
  14. Short memories re: whether or not Augusta would tap dance around the rules to avoid DQ’ing a star. At least the USGA’s can be interpreted as a passive apology for the setup. Augusta went spineless for the money, I guess.
  15. I found subscribe and save to be way less awesome than I thought it would be. When I first discovered it I was giddy: 20% off, o yeah. Then I found it hard to find things that we used regularly enough in reasonable quantities. It's just me, my wife, and infant son. Having to purchase a lifetime supply eliminates the need for a subscription. Excitement level was dramatically lower, but I still spent an hour subscribing to enough stuff and staggering it so that I always got the 5 item minimum to get the 20%. I used a spreadsheet to arrange the scheduling and intended to track my usage to tweak it as needed. Then before the third delivery they had cancelled half the stuff I had subscribed to totally ####### up my superawesome spreadsheet. Now we only have a few "regulars" on there, and I just randomly tack on items as needed to get the 20% discount. I hope toothpaste doesn't expire. Diapers/wipes are awesome for sub and save yeah, that's what I was hunting originally. The wipes are great since there is pretty much no quantity they could sell that would be too high, and it's great for our formula, too. But they don't have the brand/size combo that we need in diapers (last time I got my wife to try a different brand based on price/coupons she got a handful of piss-soaked clothes every time she'd pick him up, so that ship has sailed).

  17. Right now I am leaning towards 20K, but my wife is pushing for me to up the puppet budget to 40k.i'm not trying to run your business, but i'd defer to your wife here. she must be in marketing.
  18. how much of the 50k are you going to spend on the puppet ads if you win?
  19. I'm clearly in the minority, but i thought it was ####### awesome. Made even better by the way it ended and the final line. Everybody in the sopranos thread always gushes about what a genius the Sopranos mastermind is: "Chase is just toying with us" and "Chase wants us to think this". I usually roll my eyes at that kind of bs, but damn if it doesn't apply perfectly to this season of deadwood and the (non) resolution. sometimes there's just nothing pretty to tell.
  20. I thought the episode was great. Hell, Utter giving Hearst the business in the jail cell was one of my favorite scenes of the season. "Were ya drunk, Mr. Joooiige Hearst?"
  21. Last night was the first episode I saw. It was good, but I have to say, the cursing is WAY overdone. I think it gets in the way of the dialog. At times it sounds like the script is written by 13 year olds that were told "go ahead, you can curse!"The show was very good, but I was just surprised that the F-bomb was dropped so frequently that it seemed to get in the way of what otherwise seemed rather intelligent writing. BTW, I have had the same complaint about the Sopranos before, which I don't really watch either. That was exactly my complaint in season 1. I realized that they were trying to show us how gritty and vulgar it was, or whatever, but I found it distracting. However, after watching for three seasons I can tell you that you just get used to it. At least I did, anyway.
  22. My memory isn't what it used to be, but my recollection was that Tolliver did have something from Wolcott on Hearst. Tolliver "admitting" that he didn't wasn't surprising, and if my recollection is right, maybe Tolliver is up to something. I could be 180degrees off here though.BTW, what the hell happened to Charlie Utter as a character? He's nothing but bad comic(?) relief now. Tolliver did have something on Hearst. He had the letter Wolcott wrote before killing himself implicating Hearst having knowledge and helping cover up all his murders. Tolliver was trying to use it to blackmail Hearst out of money. Tolliver didn't know though, that Hearst had letters from Wolcott saying that Tolliver helped dispose of the bodies he was killing in Deadwood.....which is 100% true. So essentially, Tolliver said to Hearst "F you, I have you in my pocket".....Hearst came back and said "F you harder, I have YOU in my pocket." Hearst seems to be real good at that. Which is why a guy like Hearst surrounded by one guy and a cook would take a bullet in the head within a week in a place like Deadwood if every other character were really as wickedly intelligent as they make them appear in the show. This is something a co-worker and I were discussing this morning. I think Hearst has much more protection at the camp then we think. I'm sure a man of his power and money has a lot more then the Captain watching his back. My guess is there are people all over the camp that are essentially invisible to us but are watching and protecting Hearst. Also, make no mistake, a guy with his money and power has powerful friends. If something happens to him there will be powerful people looking to take revenge. Al knows this, that's why he called himself "queer" last night for not going after Hearst. He apparently has enough guards that two of them are expendable enough to sacrifice for the sake of leverage.
  23. They've done a good enough job by me of selling the fact that a guy like George Hearst taking a bullet in Deadwood would be detrimental to the forward thinking of the town's leaders. It seems like Al, himself, is part of Hearst's "protection". My disbelief is sufficiently suspended.And kudos to McRaney for being such a convincing snake. I was a little skeptical of Major Dad's ability at first, but send the guy an Emmy.
