Politics And Current Events

My wife didn't regain the workforce after taking the stimmy and unemployment funds. But she's in school again, about to graduate, and has been offered two positions in her field. So in a way she is kind of that unicorn who did take the pandemic to improve her station. That said, the only reason it w...

I spilled a little coolant on me while working on my race car the other day. Kind of the same thing, right?

Politics And Current Events

That has been the general thought about the staffing crisis in our industry. That once the stimulus checks/unemployment benefits finally dry up, it will force people to reenter the workforce. It has been brutal lately. I don't understand this (the sentiment, not you in particular, shaf). Stimulus c...

Hey NTP66, you got anything good for capturing streaming Vimeo videos from a desktop web browser? I'm taking some training and would like to make it more portable so I don't have to sit in front of my internet-connected device for the duration.

Not sure if you did, but if you bought in at the time of the post you'd have a 5% gain in a week. I'm about halfway back to my position.

Hockey Randomness

The explanation I've heard is that the leagues want the on-ice/field officials to be able to explain for themselves, to the coach on the bench, why a call was made. If they simply say "because sky judge" then the officials on the playing surface lose their autonomy and their control of the game. Thi...

Won a WS with two different teams, after playing for a dud team. Rises above novelty, imo.

Ted Williams could hit OK but the dude never won a World Series.
He only played in one post season series, which went to 7 games. Batted .200, had 1 RBI.

He might be closer to Trout level novelty than you realize.

You shut your mouth with your Sterling Moss nonsense. Every part of it is true, though. :lol: I always thought he just got pipped by Fangio & Co in a run of bad timing, similar to anyone that played against the 90s Bulls. But he really did just race for Lotus/Cooper for national pride, sold out to ...

Not sure an NBA to MLB comparison is fair. MLB probably has more stability than any other league in terms of which teams are good and which are not; likely the product of not having a salary cap. If there is a comparison to be made it would be to the 80s and early 90s NBA. Either play for the Piston...

DKNG getting taken to the woodshed. That's part of the reason I'm not too annoyed at having to hold F for a bit. It will go up. If I weren't in F I would've been in DKNG and there is no guarantee I wouldn't have completely lost my ass on it. DKNG is down $8/share or 14% from where I would've jumped ...

Owen Wilson is terrible, so, yeah, I have the same problem when watching him. Except for the Cars part, I just hear "I'm terrible" when he's speaking.
