Adulthood is fun, even if before you know it you'll only see parents and siblings for dinner two sundays a month. 

Dude, I'm lucky if I even talk to my family every two weeks. But we only see them every six months or so. Adulthood changes everything.

Comment 06 Aug 2017 sometimes truly is the size of the fight in the dog that matters, rather than the size of the dog in the fight.

If that is offensive you could always go with "It's not the size of the boat that matters, it's the motion in the ocean."

Look for the QB rotation soon....

Someone will be due for eating some crow by the end of September (or sooner). I'll step up if I'm wrong. Will the Censor-tariat brain-trust do the same? Yeah, right. LOL

Look. I don't care if you are wrong or right. Just stop bringing it up all of the time. 

The "Censor-tariat brain trust" gets annoyed with you because you can use some pretty twisted logic to get to where you are going, and you are an ass about it when you get there (ex. calling those that disagree, and are annoyed, the "Censor-tariat brain trust").

You are trolling people so please stop.

To make clear, I wholly believe that he definitely fits the definition of being in control and therefor it is a DUI.

(2) "Physical control" means being in the driver's position of the front seat of a vehicle or in the driver's position of a streetcar or trackless trolley and having possession of the vehicle's, streetcar's, or trackless trolley's ignition key or other ignition device.

I just wonder what this means. My bother-in-law (a peace officer) has told me that if you ever have to sleep it off in your car, throw your keys in the trunk. But I am not sure how this law relates to that case if you have an ignition button. I have never owned a car like this so I am not sure how close the key fob has to be, so maybe it's a moot point. But, I was just thinking that maybe the keys could be in the trunk but I'd still be able to start the car. So, then, I would think that it technically would still be in your possession, for the simply fact that you can start your car.

Anyway, it's all completely hypothetical (on my end), and I'm not trying to disagree with anyone...I'm just curious.

And this is why I'll always have to keep one car that requires the key in the ignition so that I can go out drankin'.

He didn't fall asleep "with keys on him" he fell asleep behind the wheel with the keys in the ignition and the car running.

I don't know what car he has, but it just hit me that both statements could be true. Now the key doesn't have to be in the ignition on some cars...which makes it a bit tougher to be near your car if you are not sober and don't want a dui. Now, if the car was running then he pushed "start".  Just struck me as odd because the technology has shifted how we sleep in our cars without a dui.

I don't follow recruiting except here on 11W, so I cannot claim to know how good Andrew Lind is at getting his scoop when compared to others. I will say that Birm didn't start with the connections and had to build them over time, which ended up making him valuable enough to be hired away to Land of 10. Birm has been so successful because he works hard and built trust with recruits over years. That takes time to cultivate. I think that Lind will get to the point where he has the connections and insider information to rival Birm, but it is not going to happen overnight or in just one year.

Tim, from the day (night?) that I met you, when we were at an after hours bar in Chicago, and an escort nice-looking woman asked if you were a mute, I knew that I liked you. Keep yourself mute and don't get your ass kicked by people stalking you whose husbands are TMNT fans.

MODs can give multiple UVs at a time?

Of course we can! Why do you think I made the Buckeye Jack account?

Comment 26 Jul 2017

4.) People who buy Macs when a comparable if not better Windows PC is a third of the price are "look-at-me" idiots.


But seriously...different strokes for different folks. It's like arguing which type of beer is better. To each his own because "comparable" is pretty subjective.

Comment 26 Jul 2017

IPA and craft beer all tastes like shit

I like IPAs much. But I know that they're not for everyone. We all gots different taste buds.

But if you don't lie any craft beer then you just haven't found the one that matches your taste. While it may appear that all craft beers are over-hopped, the joy of craft beers is that there are so many different brewers and styles to choose from. But I will also agree that you shouldn't pay more for something (like some craft beers) when you can get what you like (big beer company) for less money.

My favorite online game is The Axe. That's where you run around the forums deleting comments or user posts. I have a couple of high scores on that.

Sometimes I spend some time on Posty Edit. I don't play Thread Mover much because Hovenaut kicks my ass in that.

Comment 11 Jul 2017

You do get to scoop up the ex-members' (axed-members") HS, don't you?

In theory....but then I'd have millions and millions of helmet stickers for all of the comments and threads that I've axed.

But let's just say that there are some bullies on the MOD Squad that drink my milkshake.

She digs the results though.

Mrs. NorCal likes your meat...niiiiice!

High 5!

Comment 11 Jul 2017

I don't water down my opinion to avoid downvotes but I usually (usually) try not to be an ass which avoid too many downvotes. There actually is a difference...which I know may be difficult to tell with some of my comments. 

And, yes, the HS are really stupid sometimes. They are great in the beginning to keep people from posting crap threads before they've been around too long. But, after that, not too big a deal. Then again, I don't know if I'm in the top 100 people for HS.

MOD abuse days? I thought that I was helping you out there...with your avatar.
