I guess so.  TBH, S5 and S6 drop significantly in quality, but still entertaining. 

But when you do subscribe to Paramount+, also definitely check out 1888 which is one season and excellent.  They also just started 1923, which will probably be 1 season.

S2 of Mayor of Kingstown is starting.  It's extremely dark, probably too much so for a lot of people.  It has some pretty disturbing stuff.  Overall it has a lot of potential, but I'm still a bit on the fence.

1923 has already been renewed for a 2nd season.

That was essentially a transmission problem; it was not a raw material (nat gas) problem.  

There were no issues last week when temps plunged. 



Not all was well in Texas last week. You'd think a company HQ'd in Findlay, OH would have this winter thing figured out. Alas, that is not the case.

Bump.

Everyone ready for arctic air? Going to be 41 degrees when I go into work tonight and -2 when I leave in the morning. Wild. Can’t wait. 

Imagine getting on a plane in 85 degree weather and landing 3 hours later at -15. Happened to an aunt and uncle of mine a few years back.

You guys know why gas prices are up so much though right? it's a wild and interesting thing, and why the price of diesel is sky-rocketing is alarming. 


Hint: there is a reason why the keystone pipeline happened despite Obama and Biden's rhetoric on climate and oil and gas impacts on the world.

Diesel has been trending down for 6 weeks.

I’m simply looking at the thought of several more really good games to watch….as is the committee 

1. Georgia

2. Michigan

3. Ohio St

4. TCU

All get byes

#5 Bama vs #12 Kansas St

#6 Tennessee vs #11 Washington 

#7 Penn St vs #10 USC

#8 Clemson vs #9 Utah


Then 

Georgia vs Utah

Michigan vs USC

Ohio St vs Tennessee

TCU vs Bama

THEN….

You get the big 4 and the great Nati

Basically you get the 4 extra games that are the quarter finals and I’d love watching those in addition


OSU and TCU would not get byes in the new 12 team format according to what I've read. 4 highest ranked conference champs.

The next county over has had a rash of people not showing up for jury duty when summoned. One lady who defiantly said she wouldn't be showing up landed her butt in jail for 7 days. 

County Mounties have resorted to issuing summons to random people in retail establishments on the day of. They tried to give me one yesterday at a grocery store but i don't live in that county.

My only issue with Rings of Power is i think the guy portraying Elrond looks a little like Neil Patrick Harris and it's distracting.

I'm just here for the comedy that's Quaker virtue-signaling about optics and divisiveness after he spent four years jacking off to virtually everything the last guy said and did.

sometime in early October, there will be a small drop in gas.....wouldnt be surprised if we get to 3.99.  Just for an election talking point.

What will drive this is the dems will secretly move some orders around and open up domestic production and try to keep it hush hush.

So the same people that aren't capable of understanding how a gas station operates (according to you) will in only a few months be able to conspire with the entire world energy industry to increase production for a short window in October in order to temporarily lower prices at the pump and then once the election is over will re-conspire with the same worldwide energy companies to quickly curtail production do drive price back up?

It's the guy puttin' along at 45 who suddenly gets butthurt and accelerates to about 65.  I rarely pass someone going the speed limit unless there is a separate passing lane.  In the case you use the right lane to do so I guess it's like flipping them off.  Same when driving my wife's Honda.

Are you one of those guys frightened by pickup trucks?

frightened? lol no

Creeping up on $150 to fill my truck.  When I accelerate to pass someone I feel like I am pushing three quarters into a slot. 

So you're the guy riding my bumper while I'm puttin' along at 55 getting 40mpg

i actually dont know what the signifigance is of 39 weeks..is that when the third trimester starts?  Is that the date when the fetus could survive without the mother?  I honestly have never thought much about it.  But to answer your question i dont think it matters if im "ok" with any of it or not.  I support the right of the mother to choose.  I guess my final answer is im "ok" with whatever the law has been for the last 50 years.  I would always hope a person would keep a baby but I am about as anti-government as a person can get and I can see this getting crazy.  I just read that some state is trying to outlaw IUD's and charge you with homicide for having one.  Not sure if its true but we don't need more laws.
