I live in an apartment in the city that I rent. I do lots of things for a living and I am content on not having an office. No wife, which is a long story. No kids either, which is an even longer story. I also have more nose hair than my brother.

Can we move to spelling like Canadians? I like the "u" after the "o" in so many words: colour, humour, rumour, etc. (f**k you, internet spell check!).

Super Nintendo Chalmers agrees.

I am of the mindset that Twitter is certainly a problem and has been the beginning of the end for grammar. What I mean by that, though, is that I don't necessarily see a huge problem in the 25-35 crowd; this is more of a problem with younger kids and up through high school. The 140 character limit is causing them to spell you with "u" and are with "r" and your or you're with "ur" and that is seemingly becoming ingrained in their mindsets and just becoming common use regardless of the outlet in which they're communicating.

I know many teachers and their biggest concern is grammar and spelling at this point. Those who have been teaching for an extended period of time have said that they have noticed a steady decline over the last several years and it only seems to get worse the younger the kids are getting. Is Twitter the lone culprit here? Absolutely not but I would definitely believe that it is likely one of the biggest culprits along with texting.

Johnny Dixon...but I want to say Meechy. Gotta stick with first instinct though...sorry Meechy.

I've had the Asian dating site ads pop up before, but now I'm looking at AT&T. No idea why I'm getting AT&T as I'm with Verizon and not looking up changing services (yet). Like I said, I'm sure they have some default ones that show up when there isn't a whole lot of history to go off of in some search cache.

When I just scrolled down here and saw the change, I immediately thought, "Brilliant!" Maybe he won't get so many old jokes thrown his way anymore.

They're Google ads. 11W doesn't put up those specific ads. Just something with Google, whether it is past search history or a select few default ads that show if no search history is present.

AV is pretty good at bringing things like that back up. Damn you and your memory, AV!

Hey, it's a way to follow in Woody's steps and pay it forward in a way. Maybe not monetarily, but at least in the idea of encouraging someone else to lose weight. Kind of a cool thought.

Comment 24 Jul 2014

Congrats on the weight loss! I've been through it too and know exactly what you're dealing with in regards to clothes just not fitting. It just looks odd to wear such big clothes when you've lost weight, even 20-30 lbs. Keep up the good work!

I know it's not related to anything on this article, but that, sir, is the best post here.

Wow, so much to talk about here.

First, hello Allison Wiley! How you doin'?

Second,

Which makes this an impossible scenario, but kind of fun in theory: You may kiss the bride with 105,000 people cheering you on, and then you ride out through the North End Zone on his-and-her unicorns to live happily ever after. Buckeyes win.

I'm not so keen on the time out nuptials since it takes our focus away from the game itself. How about this change:

Well, I guess that all depends on whether or not we can get the unicorns to sit still through an entire Buckeye game. God knows I can't, so I'm not banking on it.

Third,

I seriously LOL'ed at that one.

Lastly, I'm one of 3 Ohio State graduates that are groomsmen in a wedding in late October. The soon to be married couple are big ND fans and they have a bye week. To them, they don't care, but they sure as shit better have a TV at the reception since that'll be the PSU game. And since it's an Ohio State game, there will likely be plenty of Ohio State fans there. I hope they know what they're dealing with that night.
