I thought a 3 would be pretty good, but we'll see. Early results of 3.4 average seem like bullshit.

How in the fuck did you guys get 2's and 3's?!?
Said my skill was 92 vs. average of 88, yet the average score is 4.1? Makes no sense.

I obviously mean good luck with Trump going away. That won't happen.
Oh I don't disagree. I think Desantis would not only win the general, but the popular vote (thought remains to be seen if he can tone-down the MAGA talk in the general).
But to your point, it will only take 1-2 other remotely decent candidates to take enough votes away from Desantis for Trump to win. I would assume Trump is starting with, or will end-up at, 35% at least. That doesn't leave much margin for error.
Good word. Tomorrow I will start with "sugar"

good luck with that.
Florida may be a red state now, by slim margin, but Desantis crushed it in his re-election.
I think it's safe to say that the majority of Florida voters have a rather different opinion of Desantis than the left-wing media is trying to paint.
So blatantly obvious how most of the media, which leans left, organizes & aligns around daily talking points that if not directly from the DNC, comes indirectly via NYT and WaPo.
I always laugh at Fox News being "state-run media" which, while not entirely inaccurate, is one of few sources actually standing in the way of a state-run media, which would be mostly liberal and almost entirely Democrat.
If we were keeping an honest score the last 5-6 years, Fox has probably been quite a bit better than the rest even including Hannity and Carlson in that calc. A lot of the other media is mostly just a left-wing version of Hannity or Carlson, maybe with a little less shouting but just as much arrogance.

He turned that last workout (the one the NFL was practically forced to hold, attended by multiple teams) into a complete shit show. Almost like he had no real desire to play again, and used it to stage himself as some sort of victim.
Could you imagine what sort of demon spawn would result if Kaepernick got together with Greta Thunberg?!?

And while that guy is an ass, I also don't agree that partisan political statements should blanket public squares.
Stop telling me who is and who isn't allowed to be offended, and especially if I don't support you - not merely disagree, but don't SUPPORT - that I'm "normalizing bad behavior". No, "silence" is not "violence" - let me punch you in the face and see what hurts more.

I’m going to guess your second word was house, which was my third guess.
Ahhh, changing it up. I thought your first guess might have been "noise".
Went poise 1st, and indeed house for my 2nd guess. At least both are relatively equally common. I hate when the more obscure word pops into my head and I hit enter without even thinking.
posted by Dr Winston O'BoogieI think it's like 50/50 lab or market...but not at all remotely confident it came from a wet market.
I believe most people (not extremes) probably assume this thing came out of the Wuhan lab.

I'm poised to suggest our first word was different
Apparently, the optimal guess would have had it in 2. That's hitting the eagle attempt off the flag...my word left 1 other choice.

I feel like I've read this tweet or one similar every other day for the last couple years and nothing ever happens lol yet every single one has thousand of people liking and retweeting EVERYTIME.
LOL. I do expect him to get indicted this time, though. And considering we already had that idiot grand jury foreman running her mouth, it seems like a safe bet.
But that's GA. I'm not sure he'll get indicted for Jan. 6th, and there's going to be a WHOLE HECK OF A LOT of butthurt if he isn't - we even got a classic show trial and kangaroo court.

It's one of those things worth quoting every 4-5 years. In my experience, it works a lot like cable and other deals where you save money on an initial promo rate, and then after a few years it starts increasing (and easy to miss if you've signed up for auto debit plans for further "savings").

I think it was Hanover that denied our HOA, and that's a blue chip firm. It wasn't some bullshit either - we were SHOCKED. Even more shocked to learn we basically had no defense against their determination. Sort of like you have a car accident, and the insurance company claims no liability because your windows were foggy...prove they weren't. I'm not joking.
Like I said, look at the whole package home/auto/umbrella. And you should strongly consider an umbrella policy.
Bundled actually does save.
I've been with GEICO, State Farm, probably All State, Progressive and actually not sure who I have currently.
For me what got complicated (or made things easier) was getting an umbrella policy. Not everyone would offer it, and it's usually attached to a homeowner or auto policy. Definitely recommend.
Also worth considering whether saving $200 per year is worth it if that company is 10x as likely to deny your claim when you really need it. Our small HOA lost a $60k claim with insurance, and we're left sitting here wondering what the hell we were paying for.

I like when my random 1st word pays off - 98 luck!
