Heh, checking in from Apex. Was nice to go home early yesterday, and wfh today, but looking forward to this stuff being gone tomorrow. :)
He overstated the tax part. He included his agent fees (5-10%), and probably another 10% of that was state or municipal taxes. Only 37% was his federal income tax (and probably ~34% total, as first 500k is taxed at lower rates)

Congrats! There better be some pics tomorrow!
Biscuit Head >>>> Biltmore.
Was on the way there with my new (at the time) bride, when I saw that it was like $75 per person. I pointed that out, we shared a moment of disgust, and I suggested we going shopping at the outlet mall instead. No Regerts.
BB is hands down my favorite player. From his fat guy TD, to his spectacular interviews and press conferences, and most of all for his opening up about his mental health struggles for the benefit of others. That is one special dude.
Ay Ziggy Zoomba!
Self driving cars will never really be here. They won't get much closer than they are today. Humans are chaotic, and there are just too many edge cases (particularly in cities). On the highways it'll be fine, but even then I would want to be paying attention.
High speed rail doing what Amtrack does now makes business sense. Given the total time and hassle of using airports, thanks to the security theater, most ppl would prefer the comfort and ease of rail. Even it were just 2x as fast as it is now. And especially on the East Coast.
Anyone else think it it would be funny if Dawand, after the season, went through warmups with the Basketball team, just to see the faces of the other team. :)
Why would they roll over in their graves? They wanted to take France, too.
It's the Ascot.
Pat McAfee is individually good, but it's a very weird dynamic. Tough to watch. And with the well financed religion peddlers dominating the signs, even those aren't as much fun as they used to be.
Why not keep KhakiPants? Sure he hasn't closed the gap much, but they are much closer to winning the division than they were 5 years ago. We're just at an historically insane level right now.
Saw Woodson play in HS, when he was @ Fremont. Never seen a better HS player; he would have been an NFL RB if that's what he wanted to do.
A brilliant idea, imo. At least play the Predator sound when he gets a sack.
Driving a Corvette: The Poor Man's Ferrari.
Good point, Navy! Allowing Freshmen to play in up to 4 games w/o losing redshirt gives those lineman who never would have seen the field an opportunity to combine that second or third year's physical maturation with actual game experience.
It was an IRL "When Keeping it Real Goes Wrong". The QB Got up, without a helmet, and went after Garrett. No excusing Garrett's swinging the helmet, but let's not act like this was unprovoked. It takes two to tango.
That I can both spell and pronounce Biakabutuka means we can shelve this best ever bullshit until the season is over.

DJ set the bar for WMD's way too high. That Cosmo link was pretty much just an advert/teaser for some streaming service.
