    Near Misses

    Not me, but my cousin in India ~20 years ago. He runs his own business and was supposed to fly to Nepal for work. Anyways, the night before he's supposed to go, his wife gives him grief about how little he's been around the house lately, and he decides to reschedule his trip as it wasn't critical. Anyways, as it turns out, the return flight he'd scheduled was hijacked, and rerouted to Afghanistan where everyone on board was held hostage until 4 terrorist leaders were released from prison by the Indian government. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indian_Airlines_Flight_814

    The Impeachment Thread

    Wow, Rudy could’ve (figuratively) taken a knee after 9/11, and his legacy would’ve been as America’s Mayor during a time of national crisis. Instead we’ll remember this guy, who incoherently rattles off random thoughts, and goes on cable news to accidentally confirm a campaign finance violation the administration was denying for months.

    The Own3d Thread.(Keep it clean)

    This is brilliant on so many levels, I can't stop watching. First the initial guy in the video has an epiphany and exclaims, "Damn, WTF we really talk like that?!?" Having reached enlightenment, he tries to help his friends see the world a new way. When he eventually gets exasperated and gives up, he closes with "F Aaron."

    Job Hunting Scams

    Stuff like this makes me physically angry. My mom was out of work for a couple of months a few years ago, and the instant she posted her resume online, all kinds of pyramid schemes, "job training programs," and other scammers started reaching out to her. Luckily, she's worked most of her life in bank customer service, so she's dealt with the aftermath of every scam in the book, and can spot them a mile away. Unfortunately, there are a lot of financially illiterate and desperate people out there who fall for these things. It absolutely disgusts me that there are people out there who have no other marketable skills than to scam people who are trying to do the right thing. If nothing else, they wasted @Bang's time in preparing and showing up for a BS job interview. Good luck to you brother!

    Redskins vs Packers Prediction Thread: Cheezy Wins

    I’m sitting in a hotel bar in Milwaukee with my college roommate (hardcore packer fan) right now, and we’re talking about the realization that we’re old AF. I’m 39, he’s 38 and 12 years ago we went to Lambeau to watch Sean Taylor pick off Brett Favre twice in a losing effort. Honestly, theres no point to this post. But me and trevor are getting our butts kicked right now. Our alma mater (Illinois) blew a 14-point halftime basketball lead to the Terps today. Then we cheered for the badgers against Ohio st, and they blew a 14-point halftime lead. If the skins are up 14 at halftime I’ll be very concerned. also I just sang HTTR with some drunk girls at the bar.

    Anyone ever met any music stars?

    LOL, every time I hear Marilyn Manson's name, I think of this: https://entertainment.theonion.com/marilyn-manson-now-going-door-to-door-trying-to-shock-p-1819565904 He always seemed like he was trying a bit too hard to offend.

    Anyone ever met any music stars?

    I met Eminem a couple of times and he was a total jerk. He told me that if I wrote him he'd write back, but he never did. I know he got my last two letters, I wrote the addresses on them perfect. Then when I waited outside his concert in the blistering cold for four hours, he didn't even want to talk to me. My six year old brother Matthew was with me and asked for an autograph-- he just said no. I'm not mad, I just think it's messed up he doesn't answer fans.

    Erosion Of The Redskins Fanbase

    LOL, in mid-2013 I put my name on the waiting list only because it was the only way to get added to the team news email list. They called me later that same week because by some miracle, they had a handful of extra tickets and were offering me up to 4 of them ahead of the ~225k people ahead of me in line.

    The Impeachment Thread

    There was some comic value when Gym Jordan spent his entire time ranting and then accused Holmes of filibustering when he tried to answer the question.

    The Impeachment Thread

    Live look-in at the GOP:
  13. There is a 100% certainty that Steven Miller will use that border wall webcam link as a marital aid on his wedding night. EDIT: Oops, I totally (accidentally) plagiarized @Epochalypse’s joke. Credit where it’s due.
  14. I just realized that this franchise is coming upon a very sad milestone. As of today, the franchise's record in Washington DC is 577-571-23 in regular season games (600-589-23 if you include the playoffs). If they lose out for the rest of the year, they'll be exactly .500 in regular season games for their entire tenure in Washington DC, and given the way things are going, they'd likely go under .500 even including playoff games next year. As a contrast, by my best estimation, the team "peaked" in 1992, when they beat the Cowboys in a mid-December game, taking the all-time franchise record to 401-321-21 (421-333-21 including playoff games). They dropped their last two to the Eagles\Raiders, split two playoff games and went 4-12 the next year, beginning the long slow descent. EDIT: I just realized that game against Dallas, was the infamous Danny Copeland play where he scooped up a poorly thrown AIkman-Emmitt lateral in the Cowboys endzone that put the team ahead late in the 4th. That's one of my fondest "mundane" (non-Super Bowl) memories of the team growing up. Who knew that someone out there sold the franchise's soul for that play.
