So it's one of those ancient classics? Is it any good? I had to search a while to find Breakfast Club but it was kind of nice. I wouldn't go through that much hassle to see old bad movies...


Caddyshack?

I stand in the yard confusion and a smile on my face. I can smell spring in the air. I can see green leaves on the bushes and green grass instead of snow under my feet ...
Normally this is the worst month of winter. God bless the El Nino winter.

Vote Tammy and Kelsey in 2016.

Apparently Kelsey loves to refer to herself in the third person... Perhaps Kelsey is a Bob Dole supporter?

Have you ever been to Chicago.

Detroit is worse off granted, but Chicago is a filthy cesspool of villainy, corruption and trash everywhere, and I mean everywhere.

Nothing good ever comes when I go to Chicago, nothing.

I really hate Chicago. :-)

I like Chicago. I occasionally take day trips there to shop and eat. It seems wonderful.

Detroit on the other hand doesn't really draw me there... Though I did shop at the IKEA near Farmington once.

Cute video. But ultimately wrong. No economy can survive humans being unemployable.

Although we will see the biggest test of this within 5 years when cab drivers are replaced by robots dropping massive numbers into unemployment.

Don't they make cone collars for rats? You know, the ones they put on dogs to stop them from chewing holes in their hide when they get fleas.

Most of my teachers were pretty good... except for three of them.

- The worst one was a sexist who subtracted a full letter grade from all his female students. And treated us like dirt. I learned two things in his class: that no one in the system actually cares if you are mistreated and that my mom for all her faults was like a tornado ripping her way through red tape and bureaucrats like a tornado through flimsy buildings on my behalf.

- There was also one old guy who droned on in a monotone using a script he wrote 30 years ago... It was SO hard to stay awake in that class. I didn't learn anything in his class...

- The last was a mean woman who hit me with a metal ruler every time I failed to pay attention in class. I did learn to write poetry in her class. I even won an award for poetry so she did at least teach me even if it hurt.

I don't think it's that cold, certainly not diving in a frozen lake cold.

You should try it sometime not really cold cold per say. Your body is steaming hot when you jump in so all you get is this cool needles sensation across your entire body as all your pores slam shut. Totally wild.

If it helps, I think all beer tastes terrible.
I've never drank it so I can't vouch for the taste, but I'll say that all beer smells terrible, which does not bode well for taste.

I went through my teens convinced that beer was a terrible practical joke played on everyone by aliens; who would willingly drink that stuff?

Then my German professor gave me German beer, and I could actually see drinking it for the taste. A few months later, traveling in England, a Londoner bought me a pint of draft Guinness from a London pub. Divine!

There are still very, very, VERY few beers I will drink for pleasure, but if you get a good one, you finally understand the obsession

Trader Joe's Oatmeal Stout is the cheapest one I can think of that I really like. But I'm a stout kinda guy. I like reds and lagers. I've never met an IPA nor a wheat beer that I liked, or could even tolerate.

But ah, during grad school in Davis, sitting on the Sudwerk patio in 100-degree weather sucking down a 1-litre mertzen and a platter of onion rings and hot wings! Those were the days!

Your taste in beer is similar to mine, I prefer reds and lagers as well and find IPAs to be nasty as well as most wheat beers... There was an amazing wheat beer made by Sam Adams, Cherry Wheat, made with Michigan cherries that was divine... It was like alcoholic dessert in a bottle. But they changed the recipe and now it is a pale imitation of the masterpiece it used to be.

THE GREATEST THING EVER!!!!

Gonna respectfully disagree. Naked women continue to be listed among the category "thing" of which to be greatest. Can't believe greater.

Have men fought wars and lied and said they like crappy romantic comedies for the remote possibility of maybe seeing thunder snow? Has friend battled friend over thunder snow? Is their a multibillion dollar industry devoted to the exploitation and filming of thunder snow?

I think not.

In the north, you can have both, have you never shagged in the snow.

It's a lot more fun then you may think.

Is that anything like the feeling when you leave the steamy sauna and immediately dive into the near frozen lake to cool off? We used to do that in the UP here in Michigan.

Anyone else catching Superbowl fever out there?

I am. I have a Broncos outfit. I have a couple cases of Bud Light (in the Superbowl cans. And I am going to prepare hand made pizza rolls with top quality mozzarella, pepperoni, grilled Italian sausage, and fresh red onion... and for the Veggie lovers they will be top quality cheddar, fresh broccoli, sweet peppers, and mushrooms.

Please tell me those are for decoration only, and not for human (or inhumane) consumption...

Is it that bad? And yes I know it's just alcoholic water but the food is supposed to be the star of the event not the beer.

Well, my feeling about it is that it's not quite alcoholic water, but "alcoholic water with an unnecessarily bitter and sour aftertaste". Even in our punker days when we needed plenty of beer cheap, we went with Mickey's Big Mouth Lager instead of Bud or Coors because they just tasted bad to us.

But to each his or her own...

Ok truth be told the beer was a gift to me from Budwiser and I wasn't going to drink all that Bud Light on my own so having a super bowl party seemed the smartest thing to do.

The kids will be getting new beds this spring, maybe bunk beds depending on how expensive they are, the extra space would be nice (essential).

I wish I had known this in November. My brother had a beautiful bunk bed he was getting rid of. You could have had it for free. It was hand made by my engineer father in his wood shop and solid oak.

There are fault lines nearly everywhere. Most just aren't very active... sleeping peacefully most of the time.


I am recalling the time I brought a couple bottles of wine to an event my mother was throwing... she lectured me mercilessly because I bought screw cap bottles.
"No good wine comes in screw cap bottles" she scolded.

"The wine is an award winning Australian wine Mom... AWARD WINNING means good." I defended myself.

She wasn't convinced. But her guests loved the wine.

Yeah my mom rescued a cat from a disaster. And that cat loved me and she loved children but she didn't like my mom for some reason and hated adult men. My mom would get so frustrated "I rescued you! You should love me more." She would say. Kitties are sometimes particular about who is ok to love.

That poor kitty. I wonder how it got so badly hurt?

All words are made up.

Only partially true.

At some point in history, yes, all words were made up.

But for the purpose of the here and now, some words are established and no longer made up. Where all these made up words people will never stop making either gain wide acceptance and become real words (like cisgendered or crowdfund) or fail to gain much if any acceptance and remain made up (like xhe).

Alright, fellow Fawtl-ites! So, I'm working with a disappointed player right now, thanks to the fact that I have fully committed myself to not returning to a superhero game we started a while back because I despise Champions system I was using for it. Said player really liked their character, who I honestly enjoyed as well. So, while I'm running Kingmaker for the group, I'd like to try and find another system that I can use for some good-ole superhero-making fun! Any suggestions?

I am a super hero game junkie so I will give My recommendation for Mutants & Masterminds. It seems to be the best made super game out to date and as a bonus it is a d20 based system for easy learning. Other games I have played are V&V or Heroes Unlimited which are really fun but wildly unbalanced; Marvel Superheroes or DC Heroes both of which seemed overly complex and had uninspired play (to be fair this may have been the GMs fault); marvel supers (the one that uses cards) which was very quick and easy to play but also unbalanced; hero system or GURPS which feature point buy and dull combats; there is also Aberant by White Wolf which looked promising but I never got anyone else interested in playing it.

I don't know I thought South Park was amusing in a juvenile sort of way.

Um... I am not sure what manner of outfit "profit" is? Perhaps we dress up as money or coins?

You know, having once again gone through Serenity (pilot), Train Job, Bushwacked, and Shindig, I can safely say: Firefly was a good show.

EDIT: for the curious, the other episodes are going to be watched... when I've the time. Sigh, time.

Yes I have watched Firefly often when bored and nothing new is on TV.

Likely feels safe, or at least more comfy than in a bright area. Our white deaf cat Zoe has similar feelings it seems, as she loves going under any blanket me or the wife are using, making space for her is officially called "making a buggie yurt" as her nick name is Zoe Buggie (as in, bugs us for petting and constant attention)

Upside, kitty bed warmers, green, reusable, and non-toxic :)

Downside - occasionally pointy when you roll over unexpectedly.

I'd somehow tangled the sheets so she couldn't get out and was woken by a frantic cat trying to claw her way out through either my arm or the sheets.

My mom's cats have learned that by snuggling strategically around me while I sleep prevents me from rolling over... But I do wake with stiff joints when they do that

Sammy has a habit in old age. She has discovered that the warmest spot is under the blanket. So she will stand next to a blanket and cry till I cover her up.

Well my assistant is moving on up in the company as others suspected...

So temporarily I have this black guy as my new assistant, he will NOT stop talking like he is Fronting. Yes after the first 5 minutes working with the guy I know he thinks he is the sexiest guy here, has his own successful company, and that he considers himself a BOSS when it comes to firearms. All the time hearing this over and over I am thinking no... your kinda cute but NOT the hottest guy here. If you own a company why are you working as my temp assistant? And I am SO tempted to let him take me to a firing range so I can show his smiling self that this little girl is a marksman and isn't impressed by talk.

I dreamed I was at a farmers market in the late 1800s. I was probably only 10 or 11 in the dream. All those wagons and stalls full of fresh produce. And the horses! I love horses. I fed one a carrot. I even ate an apple myself. Food tastes SO good in dreams.

What is it about co-workers not giving an <expletive> about utterly wasting your time?

Co-worker 1 is testing a lab I wrote.
CW1: Your lab isn't working. Here's the error I'm getting.
NH: OK. Set up a web conference and let's take a look-see. We'll go over the configuration, and... THERE! You did that step wrong. That's obviously incorrect.
CW1: No it's not. It's what your instructions say to do.
NH: I'm looking at my instructions right now and no, they don't. They are correct.
CW1: Re-checks document. Oh, yeah. You're right. Well, as long as I have you on the phone... Re-does lab. It works fine. I guess it works now.

So, my big question: Why the <expletive> did she e-mail me, call me, and set up a conference with me, before checking her own work!?!?!!?

(And yes, now she's IM'ing me, asking, "Should I import a solution or use my own," when her e-mail instructions say, "Please import the solution.")

Co-worker 2 is trying to write a lab and the UI isn't working. So he calls me, sets up a web conference, and shows me the problem.
NH: You notice that there are more menu items that aren't showing.
CW2: Yeah, but I can't get to them so I called you.
NH: Did you try anything at all first?
CW2: No; I figured you'd be able to help.
NH: Try choosing one of the existing menu items first, then re-expanding the menu.
CW2: Wow! Look at that! It worked!

So, you can't TRY anything without having me on the phone?

Grrr.....

I can answer to the first case but the second one confuses me too. When I was younger and something at work caused me to lose my self confidence I would do just what she did, second check with my superior every little thing even the stuff I knew how to handle. Looking at it now from a management position I can see how irritating I must have been, but my superior was a man so he never called me on it. Wherever that kind man is now I wish him luck.

I just looked at my internet router. 15 Mbps. For three college kids. No wonder we can't even get more than one bar of wifi in the bedrooms. And we have zero unused ethernet slots.
God I am bad at this. Okay, 150 mbps is the router, it's the connection that's about 15 mbps at high signal strength (directly next to the router and modem, full bars), give or take. Best I can eke out of it is 18. And our router's two ethernet ports are both used up. One leads to the modem, one to a power supply (damned if I know why we need a power supply that hooks up to nothing) and then to a signal extender (which clearly isn't very powerful). The power supply has one ethernet in, one ethernet out, so pulling it won't help. This is one crappy internet hookup.

LOL. You young whippersnappers!

True story: My first modem was 110 baud. Yes. One hundred ten BITS per second. You could watch each character appear. When we "upgraded" to 300 baud it was amazing.

These days we have two kids who are constantly playing online on Steam, two adults who Rift every night, and we're at... 5.8 Mbps. (We can't upgrade without going with either Comcast or AT&T, and we won't do business with either of them, so...)

That 15 seems a wee bit luxurious to me, y'know?

It's luxurious until you leave the living room and your connection speed plummets to barely one bar and you lose connection every 5 minutes.
Are you sure you aren't trying to connect too many wireless devices to the router? That's what I am guessing the issue is. Because you shouldn't get that level just one room away even from the cheapest device.
It's three college kids.

But how many devices? The machine doesn't care how many people. I personally have 2 to 4 devices connected to mine depending on whether my boyfriend is over. My router supports 8 connections, but I have a good router. Three college kids with smart phones, tablets, computers, and gaming consoles PLUS however many of their friends have the password and are using it as well.

Try going into router setup and looking at the number of connections. Simply change the password and then restart the router. That will lower you to just what you personally connect to it. Try using it from various rooms with just one connection. If you still have issues then change the band the router is using to one less populated by potentially every other wireless signal in the area.

Windows 8 (and above) is also notoriously wonky with wireless networks. People come to my house, try to use wireless, and after 5-10 minutes I just ask, "Windows 8?", they say, "Yeah.", and I hand 'em a cable and tell 'em to turn off wireless.

I will admit that win 8 is the only windows I have never used and never will.

It's always been like that. I Marjorie in psych and minored in sociology just because I spend so much time trying to figure out the why behind peoples weird actions. There is always a reason for every behavior, even if it only makes sense to that individual...and then I try to figure out why their perspective is screwed up, the cause of that..

** spoiler omitted **

Spoiler:
Odd I haven't noticed this as much. My prayers are structured like a letter. I address God or Jesus at the start as you would in any formal letter and again at the end... in the middle his name only gets brought up if necessary. And I haven't paid very much attention to how other people prayed but I can't recall others really going crazy with that either.

Exhaustion doesn't override my clock... In tests I stayed up till 1 am when I needed to be up by 4 am and still snapped awake at 10 to 4. Fortunately I have no trouble going back to sleep if my waking up was unnecessary like waking up early on Saturday I just roll over and go back to sleep without any issues.


Weirdly I don't seem to need an alarm unless I am sick... It's like I have an internal clock. If I go to bed and know I need to be up at a specific time I will always wake up almost exactly 10 minutes before that time.
