  1. Started watching "Undone" on Prime. It's animated, but in such a way that some scenes look very real and not in a Pixar way either. A woman has a car crash and is visited by her dead father who died when she was 8. He is going to teach her how to travel through time so he can save her. It's a bit trippy. I like it so far, but my wife pointed out that her father seems like he's a user. (not drugs, but people). His "accident" occurred after he had to leave her in an unfamiliar neighborhood and now he's upending her life. Like I said, it's trippy. Maybe I need something to help me watch it.

    Probably just says something about me, to be honest.

    I didn't see it as lipstick. I saw it as blood.

    The Official "Marvel" Thread (Movies,Comics etc)

    But now, knowing that his arrival still meant defeat, I don't get nearly as excited when I re-watch it. Anyone else have that feeling when seeing Infinity War again? Yeah, this is cool, but it's all for naught. I know this may sound like a troll job, and maybe it's just me.

    Uplifting Stories Thread

    Turns out, UT is also offering the boy a scholarship. It was already a great story, and now it's even better: The 4th-grade boy who was bullied over his homemade University of Tennessee shirt, only to see his design turned into an official UT shirt, has been offered a four-year scholarship to the university as a member of its Class of 2032. The boy lives in Florida but is a huge UT fan, and the university says that as long as he meets the admission requirements, his tuition and fees will be covered starting in fall of 2028, the Knoxville News Sentinel reports. The university is covering those costs; all proceeds from sales of the boy's shirt design are going to the organization STOMP Out Bullying Link for article

    Maybe this is a stupid question, but what are you going to do during the Falcons bye week for a QB?

    ***2019-2020 NBA Offseason Thread***

    Now I just need to hang out with some college educated people so I can speak their language. If you really want to teach you should go for it. It's not too late to start over, and lots of places have a "career switchers" teaching program. I taught for 11 years (history) and enjoyed the teaching- the other stuff, not so much.

    The Forthcoming Recession

    Can you expand on this? Are y'all giving easy credit and that's why it looks like 2007? I'm just trying to understand.
  12. The verses from Jeremiah that are on the car begin this way: Yet I planted you a choice vine, wholly of pure seed. How then have you turned degenerate and become a wild vine? Ironic that it could apply to the owner of this car.

    To the mattresses!

    Thanks, this is what I thought.
  14. When I worked retail (Barnes and Noble) we were told NOT to confront anyone suspected of stealing and anytime the alarms went off when someone would walk through the upright things by the doors, we would usually wave them through after they showed us what they had bought (and that usually happened from afar with the wave of our hand). The managers told us that it wasn't worth anything happening to us... (and half the time those alarm things weren't working-shh, don't tell anyone.)

    To the mattresses!

    You know, this brings up something that I've wondered about a Sleep Number. If the two sides are drastically different in their firmness (different numbers) and we roll from one side to the other, that would have an effect, wouldn't it? Or what if we are half on one and half on the other? Never felt right about asking, but since Chew brought it up...
