Finishing up Vikings.  Outstanding show, but the acting became almost insufferable.  Lagertha and Ivar are the absolute worst, but Bjorn wasn't too far off.  In season 2-3, Ragnar had some of the best acting I have ever seen, especially as he was struggling with the opium addiction.

Well…it was topped!

State Champion in the 3200 after clocking a 4:14 in the 1600 just 60 min prior. My 800 kid took 6th…my school, without a track, finished 7th in the team standings.

Getting all of the "congrats, I'm so happy for your move" messages have been tough. But it's nice to know you work with people that genuinely want what's best for you.

Except for the bosses?

Seems to be popular (car) culture now that EVERY car needs to have dark or black rims.  I'm sorry, but they don't work on every car, ESPECIALLY your mini-van!  WTH!?  

I had a grayish-blue Ford Maverick and I put black rims on it.  I thought it made it look stupid, personally.  I have a dark gray Ford Ranger now, and my dark rims (on the truck when I bought it) look much better.  

I also saw a mini-van with low profile wheels yesterday.  Why is it important for a mini-van to look "sporty?" 

Get off my lawn /rant

I have black wheels on my truck!!

I'm actually noticing more bronze. 


Tuner vans have been around forever, because Hispanic.

It is a decent but not long hike from the train station to the waterfall (maybe 60-90 minutes round trip?)

Bump.  What waterfall in particular.  Never made it last summer, perhaps we will this summer.

This fucking line: “Is there a good name for that order?”


What is wrong with “May I get your name?”  Or, hell, even “your name?”


ME: I’ll have two tacos and a burrito.

CASHIER: Is there a good name for that order?

ME: Yeah. How about “Two Tacos and a Burrito”.

I'd pay $12/year to not see these threads.

Powerless against clicking on the thread.  I'd say the issue is not with the threads...

Abortion is killing a baby.  I hate the government.  Kill your baby.  God will judge you. That's not my place.

Is this libertarian?

Egocentric daily social media posting.  I know people who update their "friends" and the world on every mundane detail of their life.  People actually think that other people are out there waiting for what they have to say next, when in reality the likelihood of people hoping they DON'T see your post today is higher.

Honestly I went a solid 10-15 years where I had no desire to wear a hat and didn't understand why people did. Lately I've had a change of heart and been mulling getting a hat.


Then yesterday I pressure washed my deck and got a sunburn on my head. Closer than ever to getting a hat now.

I look forward to following the hat saga of MontyBrunswick.  Can we please have a spinoff thread?

Ergo the word “unpopular” in the thread title.  You follow?

Yea bro. I’ll add wearing anything slim fit or skinny jeans.
