So tell me why training with the mask on is stupid?

Because you're wearing a goddamned mask and training and listening to a bunch of, as DJ aptly put it, pseudo-science.

Hodgeman on Uber was a v good read. Uber is pretty aggressively challenging Google for the Creepiest Tech Company Trophy.

Also shout-out for using 'pseudo-science', bb.

The Fake Lantern insinuates that Connor Cook locked his twitter account because of homophobic tweets that Cook sent out years ago?

Gotta hear both sides.

I was at OSU when UWeekly started circulating, and it contained the greatest answer I've ever seen.

What's the worst thing you've ever done while drunk?

"I watched 2 Fast 2 Furious"

I probably say this line twice a month, and nobody ever knows what I'm talking about.

I'm still shocked at how anti-climactic the end of the game felt. It just... ended. There wasn't even a floundering pass a la Ken Dorsey. Hackenberg just went down and it was over.

Comment 18 Oct 2014

Yup. Was working in the top floor of Evans Lab then. Was very odd seeing charred and busted out windows in N/W.

My four thinkfluencers were Bursten, Chisholm, Parquette, and Paquette. I worked for Badjic once I was on that path. I ended up doing my graduate work with one of Chisholm's former graduate students, which still feels kind of neat.

Just imagine how insufferable I'd be if I had gone to medical school

Comment 08 Oct 2014

My non-straw camo, non-'cowboy' hat is off to the brave, poor souls who choose to defend that hot garbage pop country tour coming to Ohio Stadium; gotta hear both sides.

Pripyat and old Eastern Bloc images are always incredible; similarly abandoned Olympic sites are fascinating as well – images from Sarajevo in particular are pretty boss.

Re showers: nah.

Re croakies: yah. 

I went to the UMD/Miami Monday Night game a few years back and watched Miami Bros and Maryland Bros get into an argument hurling homophobic insults that involved sexual acts between said arguing bros. It was v. confusing.

Maryland's campus is pretty, off-campus not so much. There are no bars, as DCBucks said. The bars that are in College Park are hot garbage (except for Town Hall, which is a wonderfully dumpy townie bar).

Take the Green Line into DC after the game and go to U Street – it's the nearest fun spot into DC along the Green Line. Columbia Heights is also fun, but U St has a ton of interesting stuff. If you like Old Fashioneds, go to American Ice – best Old Fashioned I've had in DC. If you like low key bars, go to Solly's. If you like more hustle and bustle, head west to 14th St. Go to Ben's Chili Bowl. There's a lot on/around U St.

If you go to Chinatown, RFD has a pretty solid beer menu. The Passenger is my favorite cocktail bar in the city and is just north of Chinatown. Both U St and Chinatown are along the Green Line and easy to access from College Park. I'd advise against driving into the District, as the street grid has a rather steep learning curve (quadrant based, which means there are potentially four intersections of H St and 7th St.

Go to Bethesda if you are old and soulless (or would prefer a really good dinner over a night at bars).
