Florida has no  statewide mask mandate, but some locales require them. I don't recall being inundated with these videos out of Florida, but I could have missed them.

Florida Man has MANY other ways to go viral that don't involve the "muh rights say no masks!!!" sort of pedestrian stuff that the people of other states rely on to get attention.

To be fair, I don't think slate pretends to be impartial.

Yeah, using them to make a point about media is about the same as using Breitbart, Huff Post, OAN and all the other places that openly cater to the far left/right wingers who are far enough detached from reality to think that anything not blatantly biased towards their side is biased against them.

I wish I owned or created something that wanted to be cancelled so I could tell them all to fuck off

If something you owned or created wanted to be canceled, you'd tell it a thing or two!!!

Wow, what a fucking driver. Kansas....THE WORST.

I have a friend who has a son in Colorado and when he goes out to visit, he drives. He has the same opinion of Kansas. Just a state to hammer down the pedal, zone out and wait for it to end, from what I gather.

You're right, them Mexican rapists is coming!  Better get  your women and children indoors.  By the way, what is "beyond sickening"?  Diarrhea?

Teh COVID. That's why we have all the lockdowns and shit, because that stuff is BEYOND SICKENING.

Beyond sickening. 

Ah, yes, the program that, according to sites that don't cater to right wing nutjobs like yourself, was conceived, possibly not actually implemented and its purpose is fulfilled by ICE's Homeland Security Investigations department -- making it look more like unnecessary fat being trimmed. And, hell, from doing a couple minutes of actual research, it looks like this decision was made by ICE, without any orders or whatever coming from the current administration.

Between you and Spock's "just wait until one of them DAMN minority foreigners is living near you!!!!" weak-ass fear-mongering, the clown show is out in force today!

PTown and Jmog have either of you ever changed you view based upon a post from the other?  

I'm just looking forward to the next 500 posts of this circular argument concerning the finer points of "who/what is REALLY most responsible-ist" about whatever, while neither shows any interest in remotely conceding any ground. It's kind of like Bird vs. Magic...if the NBA was so small-time that Bird and Magic were literally the only people who cared about their rivalry.

Now, I'll back off and let the pros go back to their arguing with the hopes it's good enough that I can get a good laugh during my lunch break Monday!

Doom 2 is the greatest. With the exception of that one annoying-ass late-game level where you had to walk on ledges above toxic pits and those ledges are about as wide as a strand of spaghetti.

There was a period 10 or so years ago when I discovered all the fan made .wad files to make new Doom games off the source code, since ID Software made it accessible to the public. There was just this non-stop collection of kickass levels that tended to more than make up for Doom 2's one failing -- that it was a pretty easy game, at least for a long while into it.  Alien Vendetta, Memento Mori, Requiem, there's a long list of really good fan-made Dooms. I was OBSESSED with them for a long time.

Yeah I have a spin-off idea as well

Please say it's: "You have a job you like, but one co-worker you really hate who makes things kind of much would you pay to have him or her whacked?"

Getting those discs in the mail for so many free hours of AOL. And then finding out that the nearest AOL source was in a town that was considered a long-distance phone call. That shit was not free, man. My phone bill for my first month of teh internet was 4x the usual.

Mets are a mess.

New year, same Mets. At least with my Pirates, we fail quietly and anonymously. Those dudes fail loudly and in hilarious fashion.

Can't remember the last time I actually sent something via mail. As for receiving stuff, if not for Amazon purchases, I'd only need to check on it 1-2 times a month. I will say I haven't had the problem some people have had with delivery issues. If anything, I'm more likely to get my Amazon stuff earlier than the projected date range than anything else. The only thing I get that can come later than it should is the gift subscription to Buckeye Sports Bulletin a friend got me and that's only happened a couple times.

Or not.

Article both says the immune system's memory isn't perfect and that variants on a disease can trick it. Remember, kids: science = good; painfully stupid kickball teachers = bad.

Well the Chris Doyle thing was really weird. 

I'm just kind of mind-boggled by Urban's thought process. Hire the guy who was let go by a college for alleged racist/abusive behavior midway through LAST YEAR based on knowing him for a long time and thinking that's gonna have a chance in hell of going over well in today's world. Simple logic says that when you're inheriting a typically-shitty team like the Jags, you're going to have your work cut out for you, so why the hell would you hire a guy whose reputation would likely impede your chances of success? It's tough enough for bad teams to attract upper-tier free agents or keep their homegrown talent without hiring people who'd make them a less desirable destination than they already are.

All it took was a bunch of idiots to raid the capitol for gblock to start caring for cops.  Pretty remarkable. 

And for Quaker to suddenly think protesters are great guys and there really wasn't anything bad going on.
