    Or as Eagles’ fans call it— foreplay
  2. It was a tongue-in-cheek joke about how our federal government leadership is suddenly responsible for drug addiction. For whatever reason this wasn’t the case when crack cocaine swept the nation.
  3. RIP Keith Jackson

    Wooooooooooah Nellie! RIP, I have so many good memories of watching him as a kid in the 90s
  4. The comedy to the chain migration issue is that it was introduced in the Immigration and Naturalization Act of 1965 as a way to bring in tons of white people to counter-balance the browns and maintain this country's racial make-up. The problem is that very few Europeans want to move here.
  5. The Gun Control Debate Thread - Say hello to my little thread

    LOL that just reminded me of the robbery scene from Snatch. I haven't watched that movie in ages. Its on YouTube but I won't link it here because of language.
  6. Cutting the Cable cord

    I used one of those services for a while. It was pretty grand in the beginning. Most streaming services thought I was in Europe, which meant: 1) I could stream any MLB.tv game I wanted. I live in Chicago so I'd get my team (the Orioles) regardless, but it also allowed me to keep tabs on the White Sox and Cubs 2) I could stream every game on the European NFL streaming package. If you play it really smart, you can place yourself in a country so its priced extremely cheap when you buy it. There was a period where the NFL was trying to make major inroads into Denmark and gave the service away. 3a) I could buy the NHL package at the European rate, which was ~$50 cheaper than the US rate. This pretty much paid for the IP service. 3b) Eventually I realized that I really only watch the NHL during the playoffs, so I realized that if you buy the NHL package at the end of the season, you get the last couple of regular season games plus all of the playoffs for $5. The playoff games would not typically be part of the streaming package at all, so this was a massive deal for a cordcutter who likes sports. The streaming services have gotten WAY smarter about this stuff (esp the NFL). I still buy the MLB package, and cable pretty much meets my NHL needs. WIth regards to the NFL, I can't justify the ~$250 pricetag on what amounts to ~9 games a season. and I don't have time to sit in a bar for 3+ hours every Sunday, so I typically stream the live feeds from my iPad and airplay them to my AppleTV. It has its issues, but you can't beat the price.
  7. First Vinny from Jersey Shore educates our President on climate change, and now Fred Durst is telling him to act more mature.
  8. H&M. That's just racist.

    I've actually heard people in the service industry use the term 'Canadians' to refer to black people. I was at the Dave and Busters in White Flint ~15 years ago and the bartender kept talking to me about how many Canadians they had the previous night. I had no idea what he was talking about until I started picking up on the subtext based on his other comments about Canadians. I've actually heard that term a few other times since then.
  9. Oh I know, but JKC's history after divorcing wife #1 is littered with some pretty questionable women.
  10. Jack Kent Cooke was the very embodiment of the saying, "Never put your **** in crazy."

    Ouch that hurt man. You just called me old. No regrets though, that was funny.
  12. The Own3d Thread.(Keep it clean)

    Yeah but I need someone to keep things hot during the day. I can handle 23 degrees.

    ^^ LOL that just made my day, and it's only 9am in Chicago. That said, how is it 3 degrees during the day, 23 at night and then 0 again during the day on Sunday-Monday?
  14. Don’t worry, I’ll make sure it trickles down to them in 22 years when I’m allowed to access my 401k. Then they can laugh at how wrong I was about him.
