  1. I liked the Brains vs. Brawn season except that they adopted the same bad twist that the US version started, allowing people who got voted out to come back into the game. In fact, three of the final four had been voted out but got back in by one way or another. This absolutely diminishes the main premise of the game. The tribe hasn't spoken if you let the person voted out to stay. Bad idea. This will kill the game IMO.
  2. https://www.thedailybeast.com/colorado-dad-mark-redwine-found-guilty-of-killing-son-dylan-over-lewd-diaper-pics 😮 Hey, just eating a snack 😐
  3. That sounds like the plot of a porno.
  4. I had one of those but I kept tripping over it so I had to get rid of it. Kicking myself now.
  5. He's got one of those mugs you just want to punch.
  6. Bit of a d!ck move to put a divot into the 16th green after butchering those putts.
  7. Cicely Tyson, Emmy and Tony award winner, probably best known for "The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman" and "Sounder" dies at 96.
  8. So sorry to see this. Little was the first real star I can remember from the Broncos. Even when the team sucked, and they did a lot in the sixties, Little was the "man." He was a legit superstar and always a supporter of the team. I saw that he was in hospice a while back so I knew the prognosis wasn't good. RIP Floyd.
  9. So your telling us that chestnuts were wiped out by a viral blight from the far east. That could never happen again.
  10. Never fail recipe. Trust me on this. Ingredients: 1/2 pound chestnuts (unpeeled, unroasted) Tea towel or cotton cheese cloth Baking rack or cookie sheet Two ounces of good Scotch whisky Ice Steps to Take: 1. Gather the ingredients. Heat the oven to 425 F. 2. Using a sharp paring knife, make an X-shaped cut on the round side of each chestnut. This critical step keeps them from exploding from internal pressure when heated and makes peeling easier after roasting. 3. Arrange chestnuts on a baking rack or a baking sheet. 4. Transfer the chestnuts to the oven and roast them until the skins have pulled back from the cuts and the nutmeats have softened. The actual time required will depend on the chestnuts but will be at least 15 to 20 minutes 5. Remove the nuts from the oven and pile them into a mound in the tea towel or cheese cloth. Wrap them up, squeeze hard—the chestnuts should crackle—and let them sit for a few minutes. 6. While the roasted chestnuts are resting, pour two ounces of Scotch whiskey into a small wide mouthed glass (like a rocks glass) with a small amount of ice. This critical step is important for maximum flavor. 7. Pull and snap off the dark shells to reveal the yellowish white chestnuts. While peeling, make sure to also remove the papery skin between the shell and the chestnut. 8. Throw the chestnuts into the trash and drink the Scotch. Enjoy!
  11. I saw a couple of interesting team interviews. Pretty much what would be expected. DeAngelo explained his frustration and that out-of-context mat quote. He said that he was disappointed with the time in-between legs most. He could see things out his hotel window (like the Eiffel Tower) but there was no time to go see them. In past races, others made the same complaint. No real off time to really see the cities that you are in at the time The Volleybros said it took them three hours to find the baby in the king cake. They were never really in at after that. The boyfriends certainly had selective memory. They insisted that they never tried to eliminate a particular team. They just wanted to make sure that they weren't eliminated. I guess they conveniently forgot that in leg three they tried to eliminate Leo and Alana by U-turning them (because they had helped the blondes during the truck decorating task, even though they were doing the same thing for their alliance), in leg seven they convinced the blondes to yield Leo and Alana so that they would be eliminated, in leg eight they yielded the blondes to eliminate them, and in both legs nine and ten they tried to eliminate DeAngelo and Gary.
  12. Least deserving winner ever. If they hadn't been in the three team alliance they would have been eliminated early on. I sure hope this season doesn't kill the show. I've loved it since the beginning but this season was disappointing on so many levels. Oh well, at least we had the blondes.
  13. So disappointed that the Race has come down to working as a group instead of as separate teams.
  14. Ray Perkins , former Alabama and New York Giants head coach dies at 79.
  15. Absolutely. I thought that DeAngelo would be the savvy one and Gary would be a big stiff. But it's been the opposite. DeAngelo just doesn't have attention to detail. It's going to catch up with them eventually. Hopefully not before the boyfriends are out.
  16. Both Will and James are such tools. They targeted Leo and Alana and the blondes for helping each other (basically being in an alliance which is what they started) and then have had to get help during just about every leg just to stay in the race. I think when it is all one, the blondes will be remembered as a decent and fun team while Will&James will be remembered as negative, pretty much incompetent losers. Hoping for the volleyball dudes to take it. They are consistently the best team.
  17. Well the clock struck twelve and the blonde's luck ran out. Too bad. They just couldn't overcome the two yields. But they did have a great attitude. Now that it's down to the mine five, it should be interesting. They have to stop helping each other and look out for number one. Looks like another u-turn next leg too.
  18. I've had numerous calls from a debt collection agency. Always comes from different numbers. I reject the call and they leave a voicemail message. Every time it's the same person. Latoya Jackson. Who knew she needed work after her illustrious career.
  19. A 14 hour wait? So basically take two meals with you to eat while you wait to get to the counter to get the fast food meal you're in line waiting for.
  20. The blondes are fun, very resilient... and lucky. But that can end in a second. I'd love it if they won though. I think that the brother/sister are out next. They have finished 7-4-6-5-6-5-6 and are clearly at the bottom of the mine 5. But the previews highlighting the football players relationship with the others blowing up looks like classic mis-direction. The next weakest team is Will&James. If they weren't part of the mine 5 they would be gone already. It was smart to glom onto the strong teams but that only goes so far when the numbers get small. They don't bring much to the table and have already used their U-turn. Pretty weak in the navigation department too. Can't wait to see them go.
  21. So next week is going to be a "megaleg" with twice the roadblocks, twice the detours, and twice the distance. According to the website, there will be two episodes as well. Since there is only one non-elimination left (and they usually have that when there are four teams) it looks like two teams will go next week. This should be good!
