GM's Thread About Everything/GM's Thread About Nothing


Recommended Posts

I have no idea why some threads are longer or shorter than they should be.  I’m a scientist, not someone who can examine every variable or phenomenon to determine an accurate understanding of a specific event.  We can’t know why any more than we can unlock the secrets of the universe.

Phish has been playing music over 30 years, over 1600 live shows featuring more than 800 different songs.  So there are a few different things to talk about.

Chik Fil A has a couple sandwiches.  

The answer to all of your questions is the guy this thread is named for.

My 15 year old son is at his buddy's home tonight, for a bonfire, complete with 6 feet of distance between seats on every side.  It's his first really social thing this summer.  He texted an hour ago: "I'm having so much fun!  Can I stay longer?!"  He could take the 1 mile or so walk home at 10:00, or my (i.e. Furley's) wife can pick him up at 9:30.  Guess what my/Furley's wife decided?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sigh.

My kid (14) and her two friends are wandering the neighborhood as I type. Headed to get them now.  Mom wants them to come in. It is after 10, I’ll give her that.   None of them took their phones. Why, am I paying for one of these things again?

I think lately it’s about how Popeyes has the far superior sandwich 

food threads seem to generate a lot of discussion around here, I think the 5 guys one is like 100 pages

Pretty sure you have to pay for kids, or they just wither away.

I’ve been watching a virtual conference that I’ve occasionally attended in San Diego over the years. The best thing about the virtual setup is that I can just leave a session versus being “that guy” who gets up and leaves 10 minutes in because it sucks.

We’re getting one near my house and I’m dreading the traffic. I should go post that.

No "Osaurus has left the meeting" notification pop-ups?

That would be awesome. They have a chat for questions which requires a user name. I just randomly put something funny like “Spatially Impaired”.

We have a slap-fight in here about twice a week :lmao:

Small irony in shuke wondering about the length of a food thread.

We have a corporate meeting in person today.  Will all have to wear masks.  I can't figure out why it's not virtual, and I'm not very happy about it.

It's fine. I prefer La Feria, up at McNeil and Parmer, to kick off my Saturday cheat day.

If I go, I want it to be for migas con chorizo y queso compuesto

The chorizo, bean, egg and cheese on corn is my go to taco. La Feria is the only texmex place I've seen where compuesto doesn't include guac

No, Tio, I get the platter with double refritos and no papas, corn tortillas. And a separate gravy boat of queso with taco meat and pico de gallo.

Indeed.

(But not nearly as fascinating as fifty pages of discussion that ends with at least half you dorks still dying on the "OMFGcantaloupeisdeliciousfightmeeeeee!" hill would be.) 

I was this close to getting murdered and mutilated, but yeah... Cantoloupechat

I'd like to know how one accomplishes separating a group of 14 year-olds from their phones for an extended period of time

Aw, I'm sorry to hear this.  It sounded like this was a good one!  I guess a good thing you weren't coming with us on that trip next week.  By the way, I ended up canceling the whole thing, then just this week reinstating but with a partially different and smaller crew.  I saw in your posts that the wedding you were attending seemed to be on, though.

When the phones are dead. 

Or, hike up to a remote lake at 9200’. That NONE of them wanted to go to.  It was hell, getting them moving and on the hike. 

They all had a freaking blast. Stupid kids.
