I watched a woman in front of me nonchalantly throw her cigarette wrapper out the window at a red light. That is an instant ticket to road rage for me. Smokers are fcking terrible with littering...hey A-holes, throwing your cigarette out the window IS littering, whether you want to believe it or no...

they don't really have food but we visited Pins Mechanical Company when we were in Columbus. bar selection was outstanding. they use food trucks for the food so that varies by who's there.

"Jesse Puljujarvi’s most common linemate during his time in Edmonton was Milan Lucic."

Well, now we know why Lucic sucked lately. Maybe Calgary got themselves a sleeper.
I would be more likely to give JP the benefit of the doubt on that than Lurch.

Resigning to help his wife take care of their child born with special needs.
47 years old and having her 9th kid.
I just realized that this is the MTV "Real World" couple. having watched both seasons they were in I can't say I'm surprised that she's had 9 kids.

Glad to see them clear the course when they did. I live 3.5 miles from East Lake and when they blew the horn it was sunny but now it’s lightning and coming down pretty good. This storm cell popped up FAST!

I've seen enough weird **** on my travels through the hinterlands of SC to warrant a dash cam.

I did this in high school, and it was..... a lot to take in. I don't know what logistical measures they have in place to prevent, erm, 'recognition', but in my case all three cadavers had the skin on the faces removed.

42 on the front, but absolutely tanked it on the back with a 54. Not gonna have a good score when you put up two snowmen on the back 9. Shoulder started getting sore around 15, where I went +8 over the last four holes (8/4/6/6). That 42+54 is the story of my overall game though: decent one week, ga...

They wouldn't waive it, so I had to remove my AA # from my Budget profile entirely to have it removed from the reservation. So stupid.
I only recently added mine so I haven't really had a chance to notice it. just curious, how much was the fee?

So, Premium Economy in AA or United is anywhere between a $70-$116 upgrade for most longer flights. Delta, though? $178 on all of the flights I've searched for my MIL. **** insane.

There's also the option of doing the 400 in Whistler, which would mean flying into Seattle and driving up into Vancouver. That would also mean I really need to get a passport or a NEXUS card, something that has been on my list of things to do for awhile. https://www.redbull.com/us-en/events/rb400-w...
