  1. There's this dude at the pizza place down the street named Nicky who is way better at making a pepperoni pie than anybody mentioned in this thread is at their job.
  2. The fact that they didn't write him a traffic ticket at the scene makes it much more likely that he could potentially face charges, not less. Him being released from the scene without a charge is exactly how this works. As has been alluded to several times, a truck v. bike criminal charge is extremely tough to prove. The article certainly makes it seem like there are more facts that make it look more criminal than your average "I didn't see him" accident. But the police did the smart thing by taking statements and handing it off to their investigators and then prosecutors.
  3. Am I being a dum dum? From the 1000 ft view, I've got a pretty sweet gig as a government lawyer. I'll cross the 6 figure mark soon in a cheap COL area, I leave at 5 every day, etc. But I hate dealing with miserable people (99.999999% of lawyers are the most despicable people you can imagine) + I don't spend the money I make now anyway. I'm mid-30s, single, no kids, cheap house, and paid off car. I want to pivot into a role as a junior high school teacher. Way, way back in the day I got a teaching degree. I'm working with the state dept. of ed, but I don't think I'd have to jump through an insane amount of hoops to have a teaching license again. My salary as a teacher would be sightly, but not bigly, less than what I was making about 5-7 years ago. I left my other gov't job to take a big (for me) pay increase into the job I'm in now. I don't think there'd be much of a quality of life change. My mortgage is less than my rent was then. I honestly think it comes down to the numbers on my Ally app not going up as fast. But when I die, will it matter how much goes to the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership? I think the quality of woman I date would drop off after losing the "attorney" tag on dating apps, but I've had a good run. I'm bored with that anyway. I'm worried that on my bad days, I'll be liked "####, I left $40k/year + awesome 401k match on the table." Am I a dum dum? Will answer yours...
  4. I love these babies for when I know it's going to rain. Body Glide doesn't seem to hold up in the rain for me. I hope one day to have a body as hot as JShare's so that I can confidently run with my shirt off. Maybe I should just go for it. Is running with you shirt on like getting in the pool with a shirt on when you're a kid? Asking for a friend.
  5. Stronglifts 5x5 has a good app and is a good place to start for a beginner. It's basic barbell stuff.
  6. Whiskey is never the wrong answer.
  7. Looking through my old maps on Strava, I think today is the first time that I've had a "that map is not at all the route I did." But I did the test because my runs on different routes have been funky as far as pace, although that could easily be attributed to summer starting up. Those routes I sorta know the distance, but not enough to say that anything was off with total confidence. A month or so ago it measured a half at 13.18 (so dead on when you consider my own inefficiency when it comes to route running). I took @Zasada's rec and changed from Glosnass to Gallileo. I'm going to leave it turned off for the rest of the day and see how it does tomorrow afternoon. Thanks for all the bros!
  8. The map starts at my house but stops just around the block. So probably 400m of the total route. So that makes me think there's a GPS issue. It was on the whole time because I looked down every 2 minutes and said a string of curse words, and I don't do auto-pause or anything. No biggie. Easy come, easy go.
  9. Am I the dumbest person to ever walk the Earth? My 245 was over a half mile off this morning on a short, easy 4 mile loop that I know by heart. This is the second Garmin that I've had this exact issue with after 1.5-2 years. It always starts with me getting weirdly slow paces for a couple of weeks, and then deciding to check it against a route I know that I know for 100%. I'm not a 100 mile a week master man, so I have zero idea what the issue is. It has to be me at this point. Or am I being a diva about how long these babies should last? Anybody like their Suunto? I really only care about the distance and time being correct. The other bells and whistles are great and I love looking at the data, but jeez.
  10. I wonder what percentage of brackets are going to have Gonzaga as the national champion. 65%? I bet a good percentage have Illinois, but potentially top 10 KenPom Loyola and Ok St seems like a really tough road. Maybe Baylor as a value pick? They were really just as good as the Zags until they went on covid pause. Totally reasonable to think they'll play themselves back into shape. I know a 1 seed isn't really "value" but still.
  11. Not even to mention that their 3 and 4 might not even actually play in the tournament. At the very least they won't be practicing much or at all before tip time. Virginia was the top overall seed also in 2018 when the 9 and 11 played in the Elite Eight. If Gonzaga wasn't so freaking good this year, I'd sort of think we were headed for something similar (not losing to a 16 but having a chaotic region).
  12. I see that they left "Dear Senator McConnell" on the cutting room floor. Probably a smart edit.
  13. I don't think this is going to help with that. He can always run Don Jr. as a third party candidate to screw the Republicans if he feels cheated. I'm a little surprised we haven't heard that leaked in the couple of hours since Liz Cheney and McConnell's ideas have leaked. "My trememendous supporters are great people. They election was stolen and now Spineless Mitch has deprived me of my chance to win another landslide WITHOUT CHEATING. He knows he could never run a campaign as brilliant as me. I urge all my supporters to give Don Jr. your full and complete support. PATRIOT!"
  14. If Trump resigns, does Pence get a library?
  15. I didn't realize Uncle Leo was one of these Qanon people.
