  1. Add one more to the list of guys you thought were good but turned out to be creeps: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/08/business/harvey-weinstein-fired.html
  2. I understand where you're coming from (and agree) but I do believe TTB was more hinting at grumpy old white people who are foaming at the mouth to vote for Trump in November. I don't believe this. Certainly not an expert here but seems to be a simple solution to a quickly growing problem. Just saw someone from the NIH saying it's going to take awhile before a vaccine is created.

    Old Neighborhood Folklore/Urban Legends

    Northern VA. Midgetville. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Midgetville I'd heard about it growing up, never went to go find it. Shortly after graduating from college, a friend of mine who wasn't from the area had heard about it and wanted to go check it out, so we did. Drove over there, saw the area, didn't see any midgets. Saw one person that lived in the neighborhood who was walking their dog and shook their head at us, we must have been obvious about what we were there for and as someone who lived there, pretty sure they were annoyed with the people who wanted to find it.
  4. Speaking of factions for certain candidates, I've caught the CNN post game coverage twice now, only to see Elizabeth Warren get an interview with the CNN anchors. I'm not sure if that's a coincidence.
  5. I heard people were booing Bernie, is that right? What'd he do, say Lenin was misunderstood?
  6. People in these areas sometimes don't want gov't help. This is a good read if anyone cares: https://www.amazon.com/Hillbilly-Elegy-Memoir-Family-Culture/dp/0062300547

    The Official Washington Wizards Thread: The JOHN WALL ERA

    I'm not watching a ton of the games but they're historically bad on defense. I'm not sure what else different you want him to do in order to overcome that.
  8. Doesn't do any good, but some people can't help themselves.
  9. Suddenly, the Plague Inc game on my phone isn't so amusing.
  10. I've been wondering why Warren has been propped up as a great candidate yet hasn't won anything. She's like the Matt Stafford of candidates.

    !!!!0mgz!!!! Trent Williams finally showed up

    I didn't know that. Dammit, KDawg, trying to find some positives here. At least Haskins will have some good protection on the blind side this year. AGREE WITH ME.
  13. Pretty sure that's the entire Tailgate.

    Did we have a first rounder on the table for Williams? I'm not sure what was confirmed and what was speculation. If we did have a first rounder on the table for him, I agree with you, mostly. The caveat being that the first rounder could bust, but at least with TW you know what you have which is first round talent and production, albeit in an older, worn down body with a grumpy demeanor.

  16. I've always found it interesting to see these candidates act like crabs in a bucket this early in the election cycle...and then as they drop out and one takes the nomination, they eventually support each other. Like Klobuchar wouldn't vote for Buttigieg if he got the nomination. C'mon.

    !!!!0mgz!!!! Trent Williams finally showed up

    I hope he's stayed in shape, is well rested and ready to go. It's easy to bash Bruce Allen for so many reasons, but kudos to him for not giving in and trading Trent. Maybe this will work out.

    Dirty Laundry

    I do it practically every other day. I really like doing laundry, having fresh clothes is nice. I go to the gym every morning and so I'm usually doing laundry. The apartment building I lived in Arlington didn't have in-unit washer/dryers, had to go to the basement to pump in quarters to do laundry and that was annoying. So now that the place I'm in now has an in-unit washer/dryer, I'm constantly doing laundry. The bad part is that I don't fold it. I work from home so my clothes don't need to be hung up or folded or neatly put away...that happens pretty rarely. What ends up happening is that I've got this giant pile of clean clothes that sits on top of the dryer and I just constantly add to it and pick what I need to wear to the gym or around the house. And then when I put clothes from the washer into the dryer, I move the pile to the top of the washer because the top of the dryer gets a little warm and I'm not trying to have any problems over here. But then I need to open the washer (loads from the top) so the pile has to move back to the top of the dryer. Judge me, I don't care.

    The Random Politics Thread

    I know you like to portray yourself as a high falutin' lawyer these days but you just showed your true colors by admitting what a Shmuffin is.

    2019 MLB Thread (Trout re-signs with Angels, 12yr, 430m)

    Manfred has really done ****ed up. No way the players aren't going to take this into their hands now, they're going to take it upon themselves to police the game since it's obvious he won't do it. Justin Turner came out today with more scathing comments. So did Trout. It's not gonna end here, when you see the best player in the game like Trout speaking up about it, it's going to embolden other guys to say stuff, too. The Astros are going to play dodgeball all summer and it'll be great. And the MLBPA is going to have a mess on it's hands...on one hand they've got the Astros players who are getting off scot free for a pretty heinous crime against the game, which the MLBPA is probably fine with considering they don't want anyone to get suspended, fined, etc...and then they have the rest of the players who are absolutely pissed with the Astros players and will take matters into their own hands since the commissioner didn't do anything. You look at a guy like Cody Bellinger and how irate he was, he doesn't give a **** about the MLBPA and that the Astros players are part of a union with him.

    Look at JD Martinez trying to get ahead of the reaction everyone's going to have when MLB finds that the Red Sox cheated, too: https://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/28724451/red-sox-jd-martinez-thinks-astros-bashing-bit-much

    Manfred is terrible. Dude doesn't have a chance of getting fired cause he is making the owners money. But he's bad for the game.
