Good sign for me is walking in and seeing a Mexican soap opera playing on a small TV.

Some of the best haircuts I've ever gotten have been in Hispanic barbershops. They take forever, though. But the entertainment value if they have Mexican soaps on is worth the wait. 

(once you realize the dude with the scissors who's screaming at Rafael for cheating on Fernanda isn't going to cut you bad)

Can we talk Crypto buying in here ever so briefly?  I'm trying to buy Bitcoin so I can gombol on college foots again.  So I go to Bitcoin, it tells me to open an account at Cointstar, which I do, and submit all my info, send in my DL, my occupation, my blood type, etc.  

My weekly limit is $5.  Not five hundred or five thousand.  FIVE.  FIVE DOLLARS is my weekly limit.  Is this some sort of cruel prank?  What do I have to do to buy a Bitcoin so I can gamble illegally?  Anybody?

Oh yeah?  Gotta tell you, this whole thing is pretty frustrating.  Just got an email from them saying "Congrats!  Your account is ready.  Your identity has been verified".


Log back in, go to buy/sell, limit is......$5.  :hot:

My brother gave me a great prank device.  It makes a knocking noise.  You put it somewhere hidden and watch people try to figure out where the noise is coming from.

Highlight of my day was discovering a big old cricket in our office that was chirping lightly all morning.  I caught him behind some files and took him outside.

This reminds me of our senior prank my class did in high school.  We bought 1000 crickets and let them loose in the school.  You could hear them chirping for at least a week.

I'm not familiar with them. I got mine awhile back using coinbase but have a bunch I'm just sitting on waiting for the price to go back up again.

Just get in touch with details on what you want and I can hook you up pretty easily.

Okay, I'll text you later.  I have no clue how this works.  Do I have to buy a full bitcoin?  I just want to put like $500 into Bovada or something.  This is so confusing.

no. goes out to like a million decimal points so you can transfer any value you want.

Your FB picture was the funniest thing I've seen in a long long time.  Genius.

The wife and I were hanging out outside because it was a refreshing 92 degrees.  I went inside for something and CNN on the tube.  I saw that lineup and paused it.  Then I yelled for the wife "GET IN HERE!  YOU GOTTA SEE THIS!"

Also you’re  going to want to transfer from Coinbase to a 3rd party wallet like Blockchain then to the book.  Transferring from the exchange direct to sportsbook can get your account shut down 

also make sure to check for a signup bonus, you’ll probably get 100% bonus on first time bitcoin deposit

i know some guys are using Gemini instead of Coinbase as well not sure if you can do direct exchange or not with that

Oh wait, can you transfer from Bovada to my Bovada?  Is that allowed?  

It was so much simpler back in the olden days.

pretty sure that would work too. they don't care where it comes from.

You have chosen wisely. Just get that carcass in motion from time to time. Whentf are we going to have a beer?

A handful of us do a couple laps around our giant parking lot at least once a day, which I'm sure helps.  The lunch choices are still too heavy though.  I need to work on the willpower.  If it's not the Mexican it's pho or ramen (both of which have a bunch of good shops nearby the office).

I've told you a couple times now, I can make any night during the week other than Tuesdays happen for beers.  Weekends can be doable too, but those would vary week to week.  You're the one with kids and ####, so what works for you is probably easier to plan around.  My time is pretty much my own (**checks to see if wife is within earshot before typing that out**) outside of Tuesday nights and Saturday mornings before lunch.

I have a feeling he'll be back.  He likes the horse racing threads.  There's always a lure back here.

I hope he might venture back at some point.  He's a really good dude.  He was pounding the virtual pavement for me in FL while I was out of work (actually, he had The Ox doing it, but he was doing it at EG's behest, so I'll give him all the credit), doing what he could to help when few other folks there were.  Meant to try and meet up with him at some point to try to get him loaded as a thank you, but the Cali thing happened so fast I wasn't able to pull it off. 

I guess I do have his email if he decides to stay away.

That is a good sign.  A better one is when my Asian co-workers and I are the only non-Hispanics in the house and the menu isn't in English.

Tortas are awesome.  

They really are.  Had a carne asada torta on Wednesday from this joint in Santa Ana.  Barely 7 bucks after tax and I got 2 meals out of it.  Asada was absolutely delicious, as was the bread.

Watched them making tacos while I was in line.  They palm the tortilla and then just grab a giant fistful of meat with the shell. Don't even bother scooping it up with a utensil.   Were doing burritos too.  Each one looked like a mid-sized papoose. 

There's also a filthy a$$ food truck that camps out near the off ramp to the 55 near my office that does excellent cubano and carnitas tortas.   Two abuelas own/operate it.  Watching Abueltia rolling down the highway driving it is always good for a chuckle.  Head barely clears the steering wheel.

On the way out of said torta establishment on Wed, we were almost t-boned by some vato driving one of the super low-rider trucks. Turquoise blue, metal flake (king cab, to boot!), with contrasting silver capper.  Guy was cool about it though and moved his truck out of the way to let us out of the lot.  When we turned the corner I got a look at the tailgate.....ghetto looking Tinkerbell-esque faeries in all their sparkly, resplendent glory flying over a couple of mermaids.   Just about the last thing I ever expected to see airbrushed on the back of a low-rider in SA.

The band is knocking out "I Will Survive." A bunch of drunks are doing the Electric Slide. I am unreasonably entertained

Did you mean you are being unreasonably tortured?  That's what it sounds like, unless those drunks are hot girls.

Oh, yeah. The less English written/being spoken the better.

at what age do kids learn responsibility and accountability? or more to the point when do they understand the concepts?

if they haven't got it figured out by 42 it's never going to happen, is it?

few things in life more annoying than forgetting one's lunch at home  :hot: 

It’s why I’ve decided to head home at lunch and work from there.  Hello leftover fried rice.
