Yup. Here's a tip:

Bring an empty water bottle through security, some airports now have water bottle fill stations past security and you can always fill from a water fountain.

A chaos scenario could still erupt:
FSU beats UF, and UF beats Bama in SEC playoff.

ND and OK State win out, and we beat Iowa in a close game.

Would a two loss SEC champ jump ND, OKState and Iowa? The howling from SEC land would be deafening, and if they got left out the south would become America's largest whine producing region.

Of course, if Bama loses to Auburn...

A good part is driven by "authenticity." The big boys have some "craft" beers that they created but they lack the cache that comes form being a real small  craft operation. So to get into a segment of the market that is growing they buy the real craft brewers hoping to cash in. As others point out; it can be a good deal of both as the craft brewer gets access and distribution channels they do not have and the big guy gets revenue; so as long as they don't step in and mess up the operation drinkers win as well.

I think our coach needs to put the refs on notice prior to the game to watch for it.

Nick must need some home improvements done and nothing open's a Bama booster's wallet like a rumor Saban is leaving...

No such thing as a perfectly good C-130. All airplanes are a collection of spare parts flying in close formation. My collection of spare parts jumps were the C-1 and CH-53.

You do know the difference between a sea story and a fairy tale, don't you?

Taco Mac is a good choice but our game probably won't be on a big screen given it is at the same time as AU - UGA.

If you don't have a car you can take MARTA Red Line to the Sandy Springs Station and cab or Uber from there. you may need to call a cab as MARTA doesn't have cab stands. Alternatively, one of the buses should run past the location.

It's good but very pricey especially if you have any drinks.

Yup. He didn't get special treatment, but no doubt some message boards will already be acting hole than thou (Here's looking at you , PSU) to show how bad our program is and how they do things "The Right Way (tm)" Somebody ought to do a TMZ site on TMZ employees everyone they get arrested. Just because someone is a celebrity doesn't mean they deserve to have every moment of their life broadcast for all to see.

There you go adding facts to a good story. That was a standard joke on the boat that once you passed 20 you were working for half pay since you got 50% at that point. Being nukes I'm surprised we didn't change the percentage for every year passed 20...

Of course, retirement also meant giving up sub pay, sea pay, nuke bonuses, quarters and substance allowances, etc.

Comment 11 Nov 2015

When I was on active duty you could retire at half pay at 20; thus anyone putting in more than 20 was working for "half pay" the rest of his or her career.

Comment 11 Nov 2015

Man, nine years at half pay is dedication

Seriously, thanks.

Even more interesting is he was a very prolific artist so there are a lot of his works around; which make them more valuable than works by better known but less prolific artists. Really weird economics there.
