As someone who was born after Cliff's death, I prefer the later Metallica stuff.  There are definitely 2 very different sounds there, but I find the Black Album/Load/Reload much easier to listen to than the earlier stuff (St. Anger sucks any way you look at it).

Soooo would that be the equivalent of an NFC or AFC championship today?  In that case the Bengals have 2!

In all seriousness I see your point and absolutely agree.  If your team has not won or even been to a Super Bowl, you have no room to make fun of other teams for having not won or, in recent history, been to a Super Bowl.

I also don't understand how the team history thing works.  The team that won those championships is now in Baltimore.  Yes, it's under a different name, but if you were to rename the Jaguars the Oilers, could they then claim the old Houston AFL titles?  The current Cleveland franchise was an expansion team.  The only thing they have in common with those old teams is the name.

My favorite part of 11w is the completely rando topics like TIMH, 3M's tailgate fare, etc.. The hardest part is explaining to ppl that I found this awesome Chili recipe on an OSU message board...

NFL arrests since 2010:

Cincinnati: 10

Cleveland: 10 (including 2 this season)

Based on your listed "favorite teams":

Oakland: 9

Washington: 7

And Cincinnati isn't even close to the most arrests in the last 5 years. That distinction goes to Denver (16) and Minnesota (18).  The "Bengals are full of criminals" narrative is getting old.

And by that logic, Brown lowered his head into Burfict's shoulder.  Watch the play again, Burfict is low the whole time and Brown comes down to meet him.  Not saying Burfict wasn't trying to get a cheap shot on him, but he certainly wasn't aiming for his head.

When your body is tired and you're rushing through your workout, your form suffers and that's when you get hurt.  The workouts are great, just make sure you're doing them correctly.

I've always practiced slow and steady movements, focusing on proper form, hitting the full range of motion.  If you do the exercise correctly, you'll see the results much sooner than those guys just bouncing weights around.

I wonder what our favorite fitness guru would say about crossfit...

I don't even remember.. I love spicy food and I love hot wings and such, but I like my chicken saucy.  All of HCT's spice is in the dry seasoning which is a bit of a turn off for me.  Though I will admit, their house ranch is the bomb diggity.

That's exactly the concept.  One of the founders went to school at OU and the other at Miami.  They're recreating those flavors in the Columbus market.

Somebody always throws math and logic out there when the lottery is discussed.  But you know what?  Somebody somewhere will win it.. Maybe multiple somebodies.  If it costs me $2-10 every couple of months to throw my name in the hat, so be it.

Mikey's Late Night Slice is always a solid option.  Schmidt's food truck comes to my office once a month, also delicious.  But I have to put in a plug for SteamRoller Bagel Sandwhiches which is owned and operated by a close friend of mine.

If you're using Roku or Fire for sling, then there's an app for that.  As long as everybody is on the same network, it's pretty easy to do. Plex seems to be a popular option.

Comment 06 Jan 2016

I'm sure there's a way to run Sling on your home PC using some third party app to record the shows as you go.  Then stream them from your PC directly to your TV.  It's not a perfect solution, but if you are so technically inclined, it might be worth looking into.

I torrent like a mofo.  I just download entire seasons as they become available.  It's not terribly difficult to get away with it if you know what you're doing, or even if you don't.  You can download a simple IP blocker like PeerBlocker and route uTorrent through one of various free VPNs.  Or can you can just go raw and dirty like I did all through college and skip the safety measures, even then you'll usually just get a warning of some sort if your ISP catches you.

Additionally, 'atdhe' (google it) is another way to stream live TV.  It's really not very, how do you say it, legal? and the quality generally sucks, but it works in a pinch.  I've used it during NFL blackouts or BTN programming when away from home.

My 2 year old just got into this.  Feels like we made a deal with the devil, but it's the only way to get her to sit still for more than 5 minutes.  She watches a lot of toy unboxings or other little kids playing with toys.  It's weird that people post this stuff to youtube, but it's even weirder that they have +1 million hits...

Same boat. Due to my rural living conditions, best I can do is 6down/1up.  At least that's what I would be paying for.. not sure if that's what I would be getting.

So I've been doing some digging..

From the Sling FAQ

If you can watch Netflix or Hulu on your high-speed internet connection, Sling TV will work just fine.

Which is pretty ambiguous..  So from the the Netflix help page:

Below are the Internet download speed recommendations per stream for playing movies and TV shows through Netflix.

0.5 Megabits per second - Required broadband connection speed
1.5 Megabits per second - Recommended broadband connection speed
3.0 Megabits per second - Recommended for SD quality
5.0 Megabits per second - Recommended for HD quality
25 Megabits per second - Recommended for Ultra HD quality
