  • In honour of Deadpool 2, here is my favourite piece of random graffiti that I’ve ever seen. I have no idea what it means. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/acd24a2f399384985a1668ab8069db6813e31e9226bc55d5a4c6b027115c7195.jpg

  • The Polish Hammer

    I have heard many, many thunderstorms in my life and not once did I ever hear the sound “KRA-KOOM”.

  • The Polish Hammer

    Saw Mystery Science Theater Live last night. The production was much smaller than I expected but I guess there’s only so much you can with with a show centered around a guy and two robots watching movies. But it was great watching them make fun of a crappy movie with an audience of hundreds of people who had the same snarky, sarcastic sense of humor that I have.

  • Marv

    I am very disappointed in these Knightfall trades. They are missing all kinds of issues and half the Knightquest story.

    • !!!! SO I WASNT CRAZY
      I was like…… Bruce did what now? Cause that aint in here

      • The Polish Hammer

        It’s possible to be both right AND crazy.

      • Marv

        Dude it’s missing his entire side of Knightquest, there is like no reference to his quest to save Dr. Kinsolviing and Tim Drake’s dad. He just goes away and then he’s back.

        And they cut a ton of his kvetching about staying on as Batman. I turned a page and suddenly Dick was in the costume and we were on to the Prodigal storyline out of nowhere.

        • on the other hand…..do you want it to be longer?

          • Marv

            Well, yeah. I didn’t buy all this shit because I only wanted half of it.

          • TatR!

            Are there further Super Deluxe This Time We Mean It versions available? They love repackaging shit

          • Marv

            This was their latest release. I suppose most people wanted it this way because it does cut a lot of the worst parts of the run but still…I want it all damn it

          • On the other hand, the issues they added to the Death/World Without/Reign/Return of Superman trades to stretch them out into a fourth book were utterly pointless.

          • I have those.. they added issues? like created new stuff?

          • No, the new editions added in issues that were missing from the original collections.

          • oh ok

          • They threw in the BLOODLINES annuals, which added nothing to the story, and a few issues between World Without a Superman and the aftermath of his return that I could completely understand why they left out originally.

          • Marv

            BLOODLINES is like eye rape

          • Ugh, that’s being too complimentary.

    • The whole story would take up about double the page count as what they released. Same with No Man’s Land, I think.

      • Marv

        Yeah that’s what I wanted, the complete story. This collection is $100 worth of garbage.

  • Marv

    And Thad is being pressed into overtime which means no reunion on Monday.

    PowerBoo5000

  • Devin Harris

    Man, that’s a whole lot of reading.

  • Breaking: shock of all shocks the head of Lionsgate wants more Twilight and Hunger game movies and is pretty much begging Meyers and Collins for permission to do more.

    I am shocked they haven’t already done more Twilight because it’s not like there is any artistic vision and integrity to uphold.

    With Hunger Games that is a franchise that is wholly wrapped around J-Law and more of that world without her will tank. I don’t think you will get her back for more and even if you did Collins was running out of steam through 3 books so I don’t know how she would go forward

    • TatR!

      She really got bored writing those books. Doesn’t the character go into a coma or something and then they wake up and it’s like “yeah while you were out there was a revolution and then this happened and this happened” and it’s like yep you really couldn’t be bothered to write anymore huh

      • to a degree…. It’s not like everything happened during that but there was a decent amount of exposition when she came to.

  • TatR!

    When i was buying the early Batman new 52 books, they’d have collections of all the Crossover issues with a few repeated issues from the Batman collections themselves included. They were genuinely worthless books that added next to nothing to the overall story.

  • Marv

    My roommate is already annoying the shit out of me this morning. This is going to be a looooooooong day is it Fridee yet?

  • Matt_InGeeked

    Helllooooooooooooooooooo

    • Yes?

      • Matt_InGeeked

        Hi.

        • What up.

          • Matt_InGeeked

            When I got off work yesterday, there was a monsoon outside. And not the Gorilla kind. By the time I got home, the bottom half of my body was completely soaked.

            That’s as interesting as it gets.

          • Marv

            …why not the top half?

          • Matt_InGeeked

            I put a trash bag over my head and it went down to my waist.

          • Matt_InGeeked

            And yes, the visual is every bit as hilarious as you would think.

          • Marv

            People do the same thing in Vietnam.

            They also sleep in rooms with dirt floors so

          • Matt_InGeeked

            So….”get a slicker and a decent umbrella, you homeless third world Vietnamese”…?

          • Marv

            Yes, exactly.

    • Marv

      Mornin

      • Matt_InGeeked

        G’day

  • Mikey

    I saw Dunkirk last night. It was solid. Started out really weird but made more sense later.

    • Marv

      My biggest beef was that I had zero reason to care about any of those characters. And half of them I got mixed up anyway. Like people start dying and I was like “Hmmm…I don’t know which one of the 20 ugly British boys that was supposed to be. I guess it doesn’t matter since no one has a back story anyway…”

      • Matt_InGeeked

        “You’re welcome!” – Christopher Nolan

      • Mikey

        That annoyed me too. I had four beers during the movie so that’s probably why I liked it more at the end.

        • Marv

          Makes sense. I just wanted some big beautiful shots and I got that so I was happy.

          Though it was weird how they never bothered to match any of the scenes. Like they’d be on the a boat and it would be foggy then they’d cut to Tom Hardy flying over the boat and it would be the clearest day ever. There were so many little details Nolan apparently just completely ignored, it was very weird.

      • The nazis were a faceless enemy.. you were rooting for everyone

      • also one of those “ugly british boys” was harry styles.. YOU TAKE THAT BACK!

        • Marv

          Yeah I never did figure out who that was supposed to be.

  • Matt_InGeeked

    Rhinestone Cowboy was probably one of the top 5 cheesiest songs of the 1970s.

    #EatthatGlenCampbell
    #RIP

  • Matt_InGeeked

    Kind quiet today.

    • Marv

      I’m not technically awake yet.

      • Matt_InGeeked

        I was wondering why you were even on here.

        • Marv

          I’m always up by the time but usually our mornings are nice and calm and we hang out and…yeah none of that happened today he’s being the worst lol

          • Matt_InGeeked

            Tell him there’s candy hidden somewhere in the house. That should keep him busy for 25 seconds before he gets even more pissed off.

          • Marv

            It doesn’t help that every night this week I’m getting more and more Kid On Christmas Eve

          • Matt_InGeeked

            I would too. Sounds like such a fun thing to be able to do.

    • Nobody cares about new comics, you know?

      • Marv

        The current product just doesn’t interest me lately I enjoy going into the archives and checking out the stuff from when I was a kid…oh shit

        • TatR!

          We cannot escape who we are, no matter where we go

      • Matt_InGeeked

        Is that what it is? Hmm.

  • Matt_InGeeked

    What is a good current comic?

    • Matt_InGeeked

      And when I say good, I don’t mean snooty, long-winded and hip. I mean good.

    • Kill or be Killed is a great crime noir book. The new Josie and the Pussycats series is amazing. I’ve been enjoying Detective Comics.

      • Matt_InGeeked

        Meh. Not big on noir.

        What about any superhero comics?

        • Detective Comics and Action Comics have both been really good since Rebirth. Everyone falls all over Batman, but I think it’s been just OK. Same with Greg Rucka’s Wonder Woman. I liked the New 52 version by Brian Azzarello instead, but I apparently have weird tastes. Super Sons is a book about the son of Superman and the son of Batman teaming up and learning to be friends.

          • Matt_InGeeked

            Cool. Thanks. Kind of figured you would be the one to know.

          • There are, like, 200 posts on this site reviewing comics.

          • Matt_InGeeked

            Yeah. I know. I’ll get to them.

          • Fair enough.

            Nobody else but Kenny and Friendship has read them anyway.

          • Matt_InGeeked

            I will, I just haven’t yet.

          • well that is two right there!

          • But of course, everyone’s tastes vary. Like I said, there are a lot of books out there that I think are just meh at best and terrible at worst that I see people on Facebook falling over themselves to praise, and I just don’t get it.

          • Matt_InGeeked

            Okay, so here are my tastes, and you can tell me how terrible they are.

            I loved Brad Meltzer’s run in Justice League of America back in 2008-09’ish….(whenever that was). It was right before I got married, so I still had some time to myself, and I had started collecting again.

            Another favorite was the first two years of the Runaways back when Vaughan did them, and then Whedon.

          • Noted.

            Meltzer’s run on JLA was good, I enjoyed it. I’m not a Marvel guy, so I haven’t read Runaways.

          • Matt_InGeeked

            I’m not a Marvel guy either. I’m way more DC. But I was told to read it back 10 years ago, and I did and really liked it.

            Dog messed up part of my cpap mask so I am dragging today.

          • Matt_InGeeked

            Sorry man. Get some coffee in ye!

          • Facts

            I got a coke zero. Thank the Coke gods!

          • Matt_InGeeked

            I heard they’re getting rid of Zero.

          • Facts

            Yeah im not happy about it.

          • I couldn’t make that damn thing work.

          • Facts

            It takes some getting used to.

          • I gave up. I’m claustrophobic about things over my face.

            That aren’t boobs.

            Or vaginas.

    • lay on your side so you don’t choke on your vomit

  • Diddly

    Let’s see if I can survive the next 6 days with $200 in my checking account. Gotta love when bills are all due at the same time!

    • Matt_InGeeked

      Sounds like a Ramen week!

      • Diddly

        I’m going to try to con my buddy into paying for all our bar hopping this weekend

        • Matt_InGeeked

          You could just skip the bars this weekend. lol

          • Diddly

            I think I will. My buddy throws a fit whenever I do though, since it’s the only time he does anything during the week. It’s really annoying

          • “Alright, man, I’ll go out, but you’re buying EVERYTHING. What’s that? I can stay home?”

          • Matt_InGeeked

            That should work, yes.

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            Fuck him and his needy ass.

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            Not literally.

            Unless that’s your thing.

          • FriendshipIsTheBest!

            I can’t speak for Diddly on that score, but I can say that having a buddy is everyone’s thing!

          • Made me laugh.

          • Mikey

            My birthday weekend is this weekend and I’m not feeling it. Likely staying in and just getting hammered with my family on Sunday.

  • Urgoz Bone-Grinder

    https://youtu.be/auzfTPp4moA

    My favourite rock/disco fusion.

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      Oooh. This is nice!

  • ugh……..they are still trying to get How I Met Your Dad made even though the show runners are no longer involved because they are too busy with NBC hit show This Is Us..laughing and crying
    right that is all that show is?

    • Devin Harris

      Yeah dude. I haven’t seen anything in the trailers resembling a plot.

      • people cry.. some people have a baby so then they laugh…. fat chick cries… then laughs..

        that’s about it

        • Devin Harris

          and it has about 36 different families in it. So more people to laugh and cry

        • Diddly

          I think there’s a couple getting married and then divorced in there somewhere

          • so laughing then crying for them …perhaps one of them is laughing again once the divorce is over

    • Facts

      This is Us is pretty good. It has Milana Vantryrub or whatever.

  • Fox is also looking to try 24 again but maybe not involve CTU.. just do the ticking clock events happen in real time (but everyone is able to drive anywhere in about 5 minutes) for some other story

    that sounds terrible and a flop… people want Keifer and the ticking clock.. and nothing else

  • Mikey

    The nostalgia shows are starting to get a bit ridiculous yeah?

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      Nobody wants to be the Cop Rock guy, so they go the safe route.

    • It works in some ways like.. I loved Sutherlands last season of 24
      I’m glad X-Files is back.. I hope Carter stops writing the eps because he is beyond out of touch but the non Carter ones were good

      I’m behind but Twin Peaks is supposedly good.

      • TatR!

        Supposedly good?! Supposedly the best thing ever made you mean

        • I’m say 4 eps in I’m on the fence of how great it is

          • TatR!

            I must say Episode 10, the last one we watched, was a bit weak. The show has stalled somewhat it seems post Episode 8’s amazingness

          • TatR!

            but it’s clearly just slowly building to something incredible

  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    I mean, they got nine seasons out of How I Met Your Mother, so I can see why CBS isn’t giving up.

  • I’m being sucked into the worm hole…trying to fight it… love the stupidity of cop rock…so..so much

  • TatR!

    My work laptop has this Fn key where the Ctrl key normally would be and it’s killing me it’s actually killing my life

    • Matt_InGeeked

      You don’t have to cuss about it. Fn key.

  • FriendshipIsTheBest!
  • some of you are probaby heading out into the world today.
    Lets Be Careful Out There!

  • Urgoz Bone-Grinder

    I nearly got into a shouting match with my mom, but thought the better of it.

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      Good choice.

  • Waiting on my cardiologist.

    • FriendshipIsTheBest!

      Good luck in there, Hoss!

    • Matt_InGeeked

      I didn’t want to see my Cardiologist anymore, but I didn’t have the heart to tell him!

  • Here is a post about politics.

        *checks clock*

        • FriendshipIsTheBest!

          WiffleBat is in a different time zone!

      • Good afternoon.

  • Brian_Bayless
  • Gonna take the kid to a Baby & Me program at the library. I guess it’s time to be sociable.

    • Brian_Bayless
    • Matt_InGeeked

      My wife has not gotten my daughter into any social programs since we moved. I’m a little concerned about it, to be honest.

      • Other than going to the park, this will be her first time with strangers’ children

        • Matt_InGeeked

          That’s perfectly fine…she’s an infant still. Mine is 2 years, 3 months and doesn’t still have playmates.

          • I decided against the library because it’s a half hour program and I didn’t get out of the house until after it started. The park it is!

  • Mikey

    Just bought The Cooperstown Casebook by Jay Jaffe.

    • The Professor

      i’m guessing it is about who should be in cooperstown based on sabrmetrics

      • Mikey

        YEZZIR

  • Facts

    Guardians of the Galaxy is a film you really have to suspend your disbelief for. It has a talking raccoon.

    • The Professor

  • Diddly

    Remember those “women only” screenings of Wonder Woman? Turns out the men are vindicated, as the screenings violated Austin’s anti-discrimination laws! SUCK IT WOMEN!

        • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

          Good point. So, those all women screenings sure are awful, aren’t they??

          • Diddly

            Hahahaha they bleed out their vaginas once a month!

            #DAWKINGS’D

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            Give Diddly his avatar and username back, Tom!

          • Diddly

            That was mean of me. FriendshipIsTheBest would not approve!

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            Not at all! Friendship likes to upvote Tom to encourage him to try harder!

          • Brian_Bayless

      • Marv

        Hey, they’re the idiots that want full equality (right up until it’s time to have the door opened for them)

        • TatR!

          oh shit nailed them! Nailed them right in the face with that door!

    • Brian_Bayless
    • TatR!

      As I understand it from the diversity training I’ve done at work today, Positive Action is okay (encouraging more women, taking steps to make things easier for women etc) but Positive Discrimination is not okay.

  • Matt_InGeeked

    Man, I just found this awesome daycare/pre-k. $140/week though….that’s a good chunk of money.

  • Had an echo cardiogram this morning. Doc says heart is better, but not quite as much as he hoped. May do a cardiac ablation. Overall, he says we’re on the right track and he’s pleased with my weight loss.

    • Mikey

      What’s an ablation?

      Happy though that you’re on the right track.

      • The Professor

        I had to look that up too
        Cardiac ablation is a procedure that is used to scar small areas in your heart that may be involved in your heart rhythm problems. This can prevent the abnormal electrical signals or rhythms from moving through the heart.

      • Thanks.

        Short answer is they go in and burn/isolate the problem area. He just explained it again and I can’t provide a decent summary. Prof got it right.

        http://www.mayoclinic.org/tests-procedures/cardiac-ablation/home/ovc-20268855

        • Mikey

          Got it. Does that mean you can’t go out and drink with Marv?

        • TatR!

          mayo on everything for me

    • Diddly

      The heart wants what it wants

    • Way to go, champ

    • Matt_InGeeked

      Good job!

    • Any progress on getting you a brain, a heart, or courage?

      Good job on the weight loss!

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      Good news, Hoss!

  • Mike Mears

    I’ve decided I’m just not gonna pay attention to this conference call.

  • Diddly
    • Matt_InGeeked

      The internet in one screenshot.

    • Marv

      I don’t get it.

    • TatR!

      The internet really did give a lot of people “information” they’re not smart enough to handle

      • Diddly

        What matters is we are all conected

        • TatR!

          h.

  • Marv

    *sits up super fast*
    What huh? No I wasn’t asleep what

  • Marv

    It’s going to be interesting to see what this house looks like after two weeks of no one bothering to clean it.

  • TatR!

    Got a USB mouse for my laptop now, I’m flying around the screen now! Hurrah! No more dicking about with that keypad

  • Brian_Bayless

    My laptop charger shit the bed.

    • DAJackson7

      Sure it’s not the battery?

      • Brian_Bayless

        The charger only works if propped up a certain way.

        • DAJackson7

          Yep, that’s the charger then. Don’t skimp on a new one though. Knockoffs are worse

      • Brian_Bayless

        Do you have a good way to tell which is the problem?

    • Marv

      I’ve gone through three in two years for my Macbook.

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      My battery died this weekend. I had to buy a new one from some store that sells off-brand Mac stuff and switch it out. Lots of screws for some reason.

  • Mikey

    Anyone with good plans for the day?

    • TatR!

      I’m going home in about 15 minutes

      • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

        So how do you feel about the new Doctor being a woman? Is she a well-known actress over there?

        • TatR!

          Never heard of her, have no interest in Doctor Who tbh. The debate was annoying on both sides

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            I just feel like if you pick a woman as the new Doctor, she should be such a phenomenal choice that no one can dispute the wisdom of it. Like, here’s Helen Mirren as the Doctor, who are you to doubt an Oscar winner, nerds?!?

          • TatR!

            Yeah but they don’t too often pick a name actor. They usually become a name actor after being Dr Who. If you’re a big actor already you probably don’t want to get typecast into being the doctor.

      I need to get a new memory card for my camera because apparently the card I got had too much memory…? That’s a thing I guess.

      • TatR!

        Wow does it remember like.. the future?

        • Marv

          It’s so annoying, because of course the memory card came in a package that is impossible to get into without destroying the package so I’m sure they won’t take it back and I’ll have wasted $60

        • Marv

          Also thinking about getting Naughty Boy Phone for my trip lol

          • TatR!

            Did you hear that bit where the guy from Godsmack sang that for Jimmy?

          • Marv

            Yeah of course. That was still when I was listening every day.

          • TatR!

            Yeah same. Good times.

          • Marv

            “Good boy phone is when you’re home with the old crow
            Naughty boy phone is when nobody’s home and that little fucking whore from Canada blows up your phone…”

            Lol, genius

          • TatR!

            the old crow. bwahaha

    • Work. But my stupid morning meeting on IT service desk procedures is over at least.

    • Diddly

      Probably transfer some cash from my savings to my checking account

  • Marv

    i bought a pair of Mossimo sweat shorts yesterday thinking they’d be really comfy to drive 6,000 miles in.

    Yeah I think I live in these now. They’re the most comfortable shorts I’ve ever owned.

    • Diddly

      Like… sweat pants that are actually shorts? I remember thinking those were dumb when I shopped at American Eagle and Hollister

      • Marv

        Yep. With a draw string. They’re goddamn amazing.

  • Matt_InGeeked

    Cancer conference time! Free lunch.

  • The phone company is digging up my lawn today to install new internet delivery technology. I already get 100 megs reliably, and can run Netflix on three devices simultaneously with no slowdown, so I’m not sure how much more speed I really need, but by god I’ll have the option.

    • TatR!

      no more waiting valuable microseconds for all these gifs to load

  • Matt_InGeeked

    I’m eating a salad because of the diet, so fuck.

    • I have a side salad with my lunch.

    • Mikey

      Hows that going?

      • Matt_InGeeked

        I hate everyone and everything.

        So probably well.

        • TatR!

          I think you should moderate for the most part rather than just cutting out. this sounds miserable

          • Matt_InGeeked

            I will be after 30 days. Doing whole30.

        • You need more vinegar.

    • Devin Harris

      I’m right there with you but I ate salad Monday and Tuesday. Switching it up today

  • Marv

    Today’s discovery: The batteries in the remote control. I’ve a mind to just let him eat one.

    • The Polish Hammer

      Dude, that’s a waste of a battery.

    • Matt_InGeeked

      *waits for Hoss’ comment on your parenting*

      • Marv

        That all became quite fascinating after he admitted he can’t leave his dogs for more than like 12 hours lol

        • Matt_InGeeked

          It was quite the conversation.

        • wait what?

          • Marv

            He has lots of dogs and he can’t leave them overnight because he can’t trust anyone in the whole world to put out a bowl of food I guess. I don’t know.

          • I sorta get it.. part of the reason for my not going to paris is the dogs. Her mom is the dog sitter when we go so we didn’t know what we would do if all three of us went. we would not want to kennel them and even someone coming by letting them out and feeding them would probably lead to lots of poop in the house from pissed off dogs

          • Marv

            Fuuuuuck that. When we leave someone swings by and refills the bowl and that’s it. She’s a dog. She can deal with a few days alone it’s fine.

    • chicagodem79

      TRUE STORY: As kids we used to lick the ends of 9-volt batteries. We were S-M-R-T lol.

      • Marv

        I was doing that just a few weeks ago!!! LOL

        It still tingles all weird

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      Just put him in a plastic bubble like in that John Travolta movie.

  • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

    I exercised again! Why didn’t you guys remind me how awful that was?

    • Matt_InGeeked

      I didn’t know you were or I would have.

    • Marv

      I’ve said it over and over again, the key to being svelte is SMOKING. It’s so easy god.

      • Matt_InGeeked

        It is true. When I stopped smoking I gained like 35 lbs in 3 years.

        Just ignore the whole “smelling bad, no one will want to be around you, money waste, bad breath, cancer causing” stuff, ya know?

        • Stop being pro-cancer!

          • The Polish Hammer

            But I *am* a cancer!

            I mean… that’s my zodiac sign. Yeah.

        • The Polish Hammer

          Seconded. I put on about 30 lbs after I quit for good.

        • Mikey

          They’re a good time though.

        • Marv

          a) I smell bad anyway, these pits are no joke
          b) everyone loves being around me I am charming as fuck
          c) got tons of money
          d) I got Binaca
          e) Oh I’m sure I already have some kind of cancer anyway

    • Mikey

      What type of exercise did you do?

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        A dumbell routine that started out easy but was Hell by the 3rd set. It’s probably what Thad and Devin call a warm-up routine.

        • Mikey

          Awesome! Keep up the good work my man!

    • The Polish Hammer

      I did a sit-up three months ago. Still feeling it.

    • I do pushups. That’s about it lately.

    • Brian_Bayless
    • I kinda wish I had time to go to the gym

    • FriendshipIsTheBest!
  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    I’ve mentioned this before, but it really is amazing how smoking went from “cool and mysterious” to the social equivalent of farting or picking your nose in a few short decades.

    • Matt_InGeeked

      The one case where the government did their job correctly.

      • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

        I mean, you pull out a pack in a social setting now and people react like you just publicly pledged allegiance to Satan.

    • Marv

      I love it. I love how people now act like smelling something on the street is a cause for being offended. “Ugh I had to walk through his smoke.”

      Yes cunt, and I can smell the eight layers of perfumes and oils you put on every morning in a desperate attempt to catch a man.

    • Yeah smoking is not cool anymore.

      • The Polish Hammer

        Crystal meth is where it’s at.

        • Go big or go home!

        • Marv

          Exactly. Now it’s not cool to smoke but it IS cool to be on six different kinds of medication preferably some kind of opioid.

      • Brian_Bayless

        Vaping is where its at

        • Matt_InGeeked

          I look at a vapor like they are big dorks.

          • Brian_Bayless

            Me too

          • Marv

            Everyone does.

        • I dunno about vape guys.

  • Mikey

    I have tried out Yoga twice now. It’s been pretty neat.

    • The Silver Fox

      I enjoy doing yoga. Bonus points: at least 80% of the class I’m in is women.

      • The Professor

        That’s why I prefer videos. I would look so dumb especially since I was not that flexible to start with.

        I have only done it in public once and that was at a ddpyoga thing

    • Marv

      I enjoy it when I’m physically able to do it. It’s weird to have to work hard for a few weeks to get in shape to stretch lol

  • The Polish Hammer

    Dinner last night was pork schnitzel topped with bavarian ham and bier cheese sauce, with roasted potatoes and a cranberry relish.

    Tonight it’s kielbasa and baked beans.

    I’m thinking there’ll have to be a salad in my near future.

    • Blackjack Jowalsen

      Does Sauerkraut count as salad?

      • The Polish Hammer

        Probably, considering Mrs. Hammer had a “german coleslaw” that was mainly sauerkraut and onions.

        • Blackjack Jowalsen

          It’ll help keep the scurvy away.

  • Marv

    They made weed e-cigs so that people could smoke weed and cops would be like “Oh they’re just smoking an e-cig.”

    But now every time I see someone smoking an e-cig I just assume they’re smoking weed so I’m not sure that worked out.

    • The Polish Hammer

      Doesn’t it still smell like weed?

      • Marv

        Nope it’s vapor it doesn’t smell like anything, just like the e-cigs.

        • The Polish Hammer

          Innnnnnnteresting…

          • Marv

            Yeah the oil comes in little cartridges you can plug in, they don’t smell at all. It’s how I’m going to get around that whole “not being able to take weed across state lines” thing this weekend.

        • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

          I’m 100% for legalizing that everywhere. I just don’t like how weed smells.

  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    I don’t know, as someone who never drank or smoked and STILL ended up with a life-threatening illness, I really don’t care if people smoke around me.

    One way or another, they’re gonna find ya, they’re gonna git ya git ya git ya.

    • Marv

      My new favorite thing is third-hand smoke. I have friends that won’t take their kids into places where smoking USED to be allowed because “It’s still in the walls, those chemicals are still in the air.”

      We haven’t allowed smoking indoors in this state in over a decade…

    • Matt_InGeeked

      Let’s increase those odds! Lol

      • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

        I mean, the air and water we consume are probably killing us quicker than Aunt Sadie’s puffs while she’s watching her stories, so what the fuck, let her have her vice.

    • I’m not too concerned about catching a whiff on the street but I’m super happy that you can’t smoke indoors or on patios.

    • Blackjack Jowalsen

      I don’t like people smoking around me because it smells bad and it’s unpleasant.

      • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

        Most people smell bad and are unpleasant without cigs, LOL.

        • Blackjack Jowalsen

          I have a poor sense of smell, thankfully. So I have to be really close to someone to pick up B.O.

        • Especially in majority Mediterranean neighborhoods… Jesus, buy some deodorant

  • The Polish Hammer

    Dear coworker, I’m glad you’re trying to watch your weight but a buffalo chicken salad isn’t really a salad.

  • Theoretically it’s not legal to smoke almost anywhere downtown here because you need to be 30 feet from any opening into a building, and the buildings aren’t far enough apart to allow that.

    Hey guys! Ferrari might allow me to have my own column: Friendship’s Tips! I don’t want it to be all about me, though, so I thought I would ask what you guys would like to see me write about!!!

  • The Polish Hammer

    My lunch today is organic brown rice with diced chicken breast. Totally healthy if you don’t count the naturally occurring levels of arsenic in brown rice.

    • Brian_Bayless

      Mine is a vegan banana muffin someone brought in to go along with blueberries and Icelandic yogurt as I’m too lazy to leave and buy lunch

      • What’s Icelandic yogurt all about?

        • Brian_Bayless

          Its the good stuff.

        • The Polish Hammer

          The natural goodness that can only come from being made by wee faerie folk.

          • Marv

            Wee? Have you ever met people from Iceland? They’re all seven feet tall and glaringly white and glorious

          • The Polish Hammer

            Lies. I’ve seen Bjork and she’s only three feet tall.

          • She’s the only one I’ve ever seen and she’s terrifying.

          • I’m still eating Greek yogurt here like a sucker!

          • Marv

            Probably all full of arm hair.

    • I’ve got chicken wings with homemade BBQ sauce and a salad

    • Blackjack Jowalsen

      But it’s natural, so it’s okay.

      • The Polish Hammer

        Exactly.

    • Marv

      That’s my kids favorite meal! He has that for lunch quite often while I eat an entire box of Gushers.

    So according to the NY Times, President Dipshit’s “fire and fury” statement about North Korea was completely off the cuff and didn’t consult with anybody before tweeting it. We’re fucked.

    • Oh course not. He doesn’t consult with anyone. This isn’t news. Failing NY Times!

    • Duh

    • Marv

      That’s actually kind of good news. At least the military isn’t feeling that carpet bombing is that answer.

    My sister in-law is buying our child a library of Disney blu-rays as a gift.

      Well that will take up room and be useless for at least two years, good for her.

      • Brian_Bayless

        My wife has a bunch anyway. Our DVD case is in the bedroom now.

        • Marv

          People are terrible at gift giving. “Hey here’s a thing for four year olds! You’re welcome!”

          Yay…I get to find a place to put this for the next 50 months…thanks?

          • Brian_Bayless

            Yep. My wife put stuff on our registry for when the kid is like 2 or 3 and I’m like, just tell people to give us formula or diapers then. I’ll buy that shit when he’s old enough

    • I would just stare blankly at someone who gave me that.

      • Marv

        Lol

        See the thing is, kids like movies.

        • Not Mahn’s kid…

          • Marv

            Yeah I kinda feel for them just because it’s gotta suck when five kids are talking about Lion King and they have to stare at their shoes.

          • He does own a few branded things, mostly paw patrol and now getting into Avengers.

        • I offered to take mine to the theatre once and he told me no, because movies are all boring. I have never been prouder.

          • Marv

            I too hope my child suffers all the same problems I have!

          • He watches the odd Netflix thing, I don’t strictly disallow it or anything, not at all. But yeah, I definitely hope he doesn’t grow up a tv guy.

          • TVs will be passé in a couple years

          • Marv

            Yeah I mean, look how much fun you have when 10 times a day your social group starts talking about things you don’t understand. “Oh dragons, I guess I’ll just not participate in this conversation too…”

            It looks like such a party lol

        2007 me would be screaming “Why did you leave this glorious apartment?!?”

        • Yeah, I lived in a half-house, three bedrooms, two bath, porch and a yard and I could walk to work if I wanted for $650/month.

          • Marv

            I miss that apartment so much. I knew everyone in the building. We all shared garage rooms and partied together and had barbecues together and so much fun stuff.

            That will never happen in my life again. I mean how often do people in apartments know ONE neighbor? I knew them all and we were all friends.

          • Matt_InGeeked

            Can’t you move back there?

          • Marv

            I’ve been keeping my eye on the building for two months, they’ve got nothing open right now.

            We’d need at least a two bedroom and there aren’t that many of those in that building. If I can just get back to that neighborhood I’ll be happy.

          • That might be nice…

            I always wonder how my life would be different if I was offered that job working for Sam’s Club corporate in Bentonville. The cost of living at the time was comically low.

      • Matt_InGeeked

        Yeah, I mean I pay all my bills and that’s all great, but I don’t have the cash to just say fuck it and go on vacation. That stinks.

        Of course, this could be remedied when the wife goes back to work.

        • Marv

          The only reason I’m able to afford anything fun is because my dad died.

          All told I’d much rather just not be able to go on vacations.

    • Marv

      …isn’t his haircut just a high and tight?

      • More like he has a strip on top and the sides and backs are pretty much shaven.

        • Marv

          Ah, ok. I haven’t seen what he looks like in at least a year. I thought he just had a normal high and tight.

  • Marv

    I’m digging these stories about bands selling tickets on the first day as “in-person only” meaning you have to go to the box office at the venue to buy them. It prevents all these shitty sites from instantly buying up all the best seats for resale so actual fans can buy them instead.

    • TatR!

      I hate when UFC brags about shows, especially here, selling out in 60 seconds. It’s like, that’s impossible. You know that’s impossible and it’s been scammed.

      • Marv

        Yeah it’s just for bragging rights really. Vince would be thrilled to have a show sell out in the first month of tickets being on sale now lol

        • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

          He would do backflips if they sold out anywhere!

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      Actual fans or resellers who get in line first. There’s no way to beat the resell system.

      Cool.

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

    • TatR!

      you also have to take into account bowling injuries

    • Blackjack Jowalsen

      Well, according to all the clickbait articles on Scott’s site, the list of “Death Foods” is growing by the day.

  • Urgoz Bone-Grinder

    Still my favorite Grand theft auto game.

    • TatR!

      The only GTA game I’ve played is the old micromachines looking one. I’m such a bum

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        Me too! I liked that one!

        • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

          No, wait, I’m a poser….I played 3 a bit, too.

    • Rowlf

      The soundtrack to that game is amazing. I played it for about six months straight, completing it 100% when it came out 15(!) years ago.

      • Devin Harris

        I gave up on the bank robbery thing. I could never get away.

        • Rowlf

          Finally adding checkpoints in the missions in GTA V helped so much. A lot less frustration.

  • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

    Re-reading all the current Valiant comics, it’s clear the whole thing was created by the guy who used to run Marvel. Every character is a combination of different Marvel characters, but mostly Wolverine.

    • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

      My local comic book store seems to have some arrangement with them so they push their books pretty hard. I’m like nah man.

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        They’re good if you like sci-fi type stuff. Plus, I grew up on the original Valiant line. Those were my main comics as a kid.

        • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

          I took a free quantum and woody once. It was super confusing non-linear chris priest stuff. No thanks.

  • Blackjack Jowalsen

    Nothing I like more than elimination Little League baseball.

    The delicious tears…

    • Marv

      My favorite thing about the LLWS is seeing the Puerto Ricans that have gray hair around their temples saying they’re only 12 years old

      • DAJackson7

        Some fat kid was up to bat when i watching monday and he weighed in at over 225 and was twelve. wtf?

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      Boo!

    • Devin Harris

      Something seems wrong about broadcasting sports.

  • Running Windows 8.1 on my Mac so I can play some games.

    I feel so dirty.

  • FriendshipIsTheBest!

    Hey guys! Looks like another day with wieners for lunch!!

  • Rowlf

    The soundtrack is such an important part of a GTA game. I think that’s why GTA IV isn’t thought of particularly fondly, there’s barely any memorable tunes in it, even though it’s still a fine game.

    • Marv

      I always love the talk radio. I can listen to Lazlo forever I don’t much care about the real tunes.

      • TatR!

        Weren’t O+A on one?

        • Marv

          They had small appearances here and there. Anthony did character voices on Vice City and 5

      • DAJackson7

        That’s the same thing i always have done. I just love it so much. I played to much GTA V though cause i know both talk radio stations shows back and forth now and it’s not as fun

    • Blackjack Jowalsen

      And the driving was awful.

      But yes.

  • Devin Harris

    Skipped the gym for lunch cause my workout partner took the day off. Tomorrow is the last day of the free trial and he has these people believing we are going to join. I wouldn’t even go back but I have to turn the key back in to get my 10 dollar deposit.

    • Marv

      This has been the most miserable gym trial in history lol

      • Devin Harris

        It really has. The only good thing is they have private bathrooms and showers. I really can do without the locker room experience at this point in my life.

        • Marv

          The gym I go to has a creep that spends hoooooours in the locker room. I like it, it makes me feel pretty.

          • Devin Harris

            Mine has this older dude…I don’t know what’s going on with him. Like every part of his body must ache cause he’s always grunting and grimacing very loudly.

          • Marv

            LOL yes! That’s what this guy does too, he’ll stand up and grunt, then sit back down. Then walk over to the sinks and make noises, then come back and sit down again. He does this for hours and hours.

          • Devin Harris

            hahahaha. One day this guy was all in his crotch rubbing ointment or whatever and he was all. OOOHHHH AAAHHHHH and everyone has to pretend this isn’t going on.

          • Marv

            It’s really the true test of the social contract.

          • Devin Harris

            lol

    • The Professor

      what has been so bad about it?

      • Devin Harris

        for starters working out at lunch is stupid. it’s more like a retirement community than a gym and I’m kind of a meathead. I really need a place to let my meatheadedness grow and flourish.

  • Facts

    I have been reading the comments the last three hours and never felt like posting. Hmm.

  • Devin Harris

    I beat GTA III only by using cheat codes. I beat the last mission while driving a tank.

    • DAJackson7

      That was the only way to do pretty much. I just remember on college breaks me and my friends would take turns playing that till 5 in the morning back home and one morning the most straight laced of our group called and said ” i saw this lady getting her mail and i was swerving to hit her before i caught myself”

      • Blackjack Jowalsen

        Me and my friends would always run over every motorcyclist we saw. I have caught myself drifting towards motorcyclists before realizing this was real life.

      • Devin Harris

        hahahaha. My sister called me one night and asked if I could take my niece to school in the morning. So I finally put the controller down so I could take her to school.

        • DAJackson7

          Now i know what i’m doing this weekend…playing gta all day saturday and sunday

      • Marv

        It’s the best when a game actually takes over your life. I remember when we were playing FF7 and FF8 a lot we’d be driving through a field or whatever and I’d always think “Go go go before a monster pops!”

        Or when you’re deep into the Tony Hawk and just walking around a city like “Ooooooh and I’d go from that power line over to that window then down to that bus stop stand and then grind that curb over there to that bench…”

  • FriendshipIsTheBest!

    Hot cake: Streaming is ruining our film culture!

  • chicagodem79

    This is incredible lol, (I need to turn off these Yahoo News notifications)

    Sen Ron Johnson (R- Wisconsin) suggests that John McCain’s brain tumor affected his health care vote. These people are so evilly cynical, I don’t know whether to laugh or cry.

    • Marv

      It would be a little weird for a guy getting state-run health care for his brain cancer to vote no on people getting state-run healthcare for their shit.

  • FriendshipIsTheBest!

    You guys think it’s safe to go swimming after eating two wieners?

    • Devin Harris

      I’ve never followed swimming safety guidelines in my life. I’ve had zero cramps. Fake news

      • Marv

        I cramp almost every time I eat a wiener.

        • Matt_InGeeked

          ……

          • Marv

            I really have to force myself to relax and take deep breaths.

          • No one wants you to choke.

          • Devin Harris

            lol. I hear they make some kind of anti-gagging stuff

          • FriendshipIsTheBest!

            Maybe if you put ketchup on the wieners it would help!

        • FriendshipIsTheBest!

          Really? I can polish off two or three wieners no problem!!!

        • Devin Harris

          I don’t eat wieners. That and baloney. There is just better stuff to eat even if you are broke.

    • Matt_InGeeked

    • You’re good. I think that’s an old wives tale.

    • Brian_Bayless
      • TatR!

        aw geez that is like the one thing you don’t want to happen when you’re a swimmer

      • FriendshipIsTheBest!

        No I ate them separately, but I did gobble them up!

        • Facts

          Always good to gobble up wieners.

  • Matt_InGeeked

    I could go for a giant cupcake.

  • Marv

    I want to be liberal and forward thinking and tolerant and open to all lifestyles and stuff but…I’m sorry gay jokes are just always going to be funny forever

    • Matt_InGeeked

      Gay jokes are funny to most gay guys, as long as it doesn’t go so far as to say they’re lower beings or something for taking a dick in the ass.

      • Matt_InGeeked

        You know, like denigration just to be a mean asshole and then pass it off as being funny. That’s where it’s like, “oh, well you’re just a prick.”

        But all of my gay friends would laugh at the wiener jokes below.

        • FriendshipIsTheBest!

          What wiener jokes below?

          He is the captain though. He is in charge of the ship. That tall woman thinks she is in charge, but she isn’t. She’s just in charge of the mission.

            I totally believe this lol

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        That’s how all of mine go, too!

        • We gather, shake hands, chat briefly about what’s going on in our lives without getting into a lot of detail, sit and eat a generous but not excessive meal, discuss current events without offering a lot of personal opinion, make inoffensive jokes, finish dinner, clear the table, sit briefly and discuss the week ahead, get up, shake hands, and say see you at Easter or Thanksgiving, or whatever. Four to five hours start to finish.

          • My mom’s fella also plays piano for a bit.

          • That sounds exhausting.

            Yeah it sounds like when the office goes out to lunch.

            Actually it sounds even more boring than that, at least we laugh and drink at work lunches.

          • We all like to drink, but generally when we hang out together it’s a dry party. There are exceptions. We had a 65th birthday in the family earlier this year and everyone got shit hammered.

      I’m pretty close to that.

  • Marv

    I’m looking around the internet and the overwhelming opinion appears to be that people will never ever never pay for a Disney streaming service.

    I like that this place was basically like “Welp I guess I have to pay for that now.”

    • The Internet is overwhelming filled with liars.

      • Marv

        Well yeah of course they’re all going to pay for it but still, I appreciate that for the most part our reaction was the opposite

        • Until they announce that the movies available for streaming will ALSO be susceptible to being put in the vault and not be viewed for months/years at a time…

          • Marv

            I feel like the vault will just be changed up a bit. Rather than the movies going away forever they’ll only be available on some kind of $40 bluray set or something “You can get everything on our service but for the next four years if you want Lion King or Beauty and the Beast you have to buy these editions. Then in four years those will be streamed and you’ll have to buy Aladdin and Fantasia” like that maybe

          • I bet the streaming service will be tiered, like one price for whatever morsels Disney wants to give you at the time and then ANOTHER price for a premium service that will make everything available.

          • FriendshipIsTheBest!

            I predicted years ago this would happen! Disney, Fox, WB, Criterion, WWE Network… People could pay almost $100 a month for all these services!!!

            That’s why I still like Blu rays more than streams!

          • Matt_InGeeked

            I don’t get any of those channels now, except for Disney.

            If they all go to their own individual services, I imagine I’ll get Disney, and that’s about it.

          • FriendshipIsTheBest!

            But what will you watch? They won’t be showing Taxi Driver on Disney!

        • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

          I feel we don’t lie to ourselves as much…probably because we’re all older.

          • Devin Harris

            There is also no point in faux fighting the power.

          • Marv

            No one here is much trying to take a big stand on anything, that’s true

          • We keep it casual, baby.

          • Devin Harris

            It’s for the youth. For 35 and over crowd it’s about easing into retirement

          • Marv

            Do they have a set nap time at protests? I’d totally go if there was a nap portion.

          • Devin Harris

            I’d go if I didn’t have to stand the whole time. They are going to protest the NFL offices over the Kaepernick thing. It just sounds like work. I have to walk, hold a sign, and be very angry. Protesting is really demanding.

          • Marv

            Haha yeah more places to sit please

    • Matt_InGeeked

      I will definitely pay for it, and don’t feel bad about it at all. I have a 2 year old daughter who loves everything Disney, and if they have a service that’s $10 a month, I’ll just get rid of my $25/month Sling TV that I barely watch and wah-lah.

      • Marv

        Yeah I figure I’ll be paying for it for, what, eight years minimally I suppose? By 10 he’ll probably be out of it, maybe 11-12

        • Matt_InGeeked

          Same. When she’s 12, she won’t give a shit.

  • FriendshipIsTheBest!

    Ok so my good buddy Mikey doesn’t believe I went swimming, so I’m going to use this as an occasion to share with you guys the first of my Friendship’s Tips!!!! Hopefully, some of you can put it to good use…

    Ever wonder how I manage to consume pizza, wieners, and chocolate milk and still stay in pretty good shape? I go swimming every day! All I do is 10-12 lanes, that’s it, and probably burn off 300-400 calories! That’s almost a whole meal! Afterwards, I don’t feel too bad about eating French fries if I want to!!! If I actually dieted, the results would be even better, but since I’m not paid to look like AJ Styles, I don’t…

    If you do the same, you’ll lose weight in no time!

    • TatR!

      I figured it was just because you were 7 feet tall and need about 9000 calories a day just to live

      • Brian_Bayless

        Friendship Is The Best is Bill Brasky?

      • FriendshipIsTheBest!

        If I was that tall I could be a wrestler!!!

  • The Wright Thompson ESPN piece on Mcgregor: Holy crap what a laughable portrayal of Dublin as some 3rd world war torn disaster that he pulled himself out of.

    The city was wonderful and we never felt in danger for a second

    • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

      Yeah, its not like its in Scotland or something.

      • Scotland was even better

        • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

          Better than mega-aids maybe.

          • I mean, it’s no Hawaii, am I right?

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            They don’t even have aloha shirts!

          • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

            They’d just put fucking bagpipes on them.

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            Bagpipes and pineapples? I’m in!

          • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

            Insane maybe.
            Nailed it.

          • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

            I can’t imagine the waters of Scotland ever reach the lovely temps that they are every damn day in the aloha state.

          • It would be impossible to argue this.

    • Devin Harris

      It sounded a little over the top but I gave the guy the benefit of the doubt cause I’ve never been there

      • like I’m sure there are rough areas like any major city but from my limited experience it’s like a 2 on a 10 scale compared to a Chicago

        • Devin Harris

          That’s exactly my thinking. Don’t go to the hood and it’s a good chance you’ll live wherever you visit

          • Dwayne

            Even if you pass through those areas, it’s not like you die immediately. People that are victims usually are involved in bullshit.

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            The rule of thumb I lived by was don’t get involved in other people’s business. No one gave me a hard time.

          • even when you hang out with Friendship? I assume he is going around trying to hug people

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            Friendship and I share the same business – giving hugs!

  • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

    Does anyone else here watch Outlander? I love that show!

    • Blanche wants to watch. we watched the first couple but didn’t get back to it.

      We went to a couple places from it in Scotland

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        It gets better as it goes on. The second season was intense! I’m jealous you got to go to some of the places!

        • Glencoe where they do a lot of of the scenery filming for it and Harry Potter movies

          and we went to linlithgow palace where I guess they filmed prison stuff

  • Marv

    Soon enough Comcast will be selling tiered internet packages that include subs. Like hey you can get internet for $60 -OR- you can spend $100 and get that same internet with Netflix/Prime/Hulu subscriptions included!

    It’s going to be funny watching the whole thing start over again.

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      It is a weird phenomenon. My brother and I split everything, which keeps it pretty affordable. In NYC, cable plus internet is like $185, but just super fast internet is like $100-ish. I pay around $30-$40/month in subs and I come out ahead.

    • Brian_Bayless

      Yeah, the cord-cutting to save was not going to last forever

    • Matt_InGeeked

      Cable companies are the new mafia. They’ll get their money one way or another.

    • mike

      Just thinking that this morning when I saw Disney is pulling out of Netflix. If we seriously end up with the same shit again, I’m ditching television altogether.

    • Diddly

      That’s still a horrible bargain since Netflix is 10 bucks and Hulu is 8, so 78 or 100 for it all… checkmate athiests!

  • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

    I bet the proliferation of streaming services actually extends the life of bluray as a technology.

  • FriendshipIsTheBest!

    I don’t think anyone here takes me seriously about the shape I’m in! But it’s true, it’s all from swimming on, and here’s the proof!!! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/3abe6b91b59adec136ff84f4998f51d1c9476ec8aed38995f33216f4abe4aa65.gif

  • Matt_InGeeked

    I could really use a vacation.

    • Matt_InGeeked

      Even a staycation would be pretty amazing.

    • FriendshipIsTheBest!

      Everyday in Friendshipville is a vacation!!!

    • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

      I always eat the best foods when I’m on vacation.

      • Brian_Bayless

        Better than boiled eggs I hope

        • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

          I would never even consider eating boiled eggs on vacation.

        • Boiled eggs is no vacation at all.

      • Matt_InGeeked

        Cool.

    • Mikey

      Do it!!!!

  • mike

    Aaaaand GSP posted a picture signing his fight contract against Bisping at MSG. God I hope he pummels him.

    • Dayman Macklin

      GSP coming back after 4 years away and getting an immediate title fight in a division he never fought in. Yep, that’s 2017 UFC alright.

      • mike

        He’s one of the guys who deserves it. If he had vacated the belt after he fought Hendricks and moved up, he would have gotten a title shot right away then and I don’t think too many people would have complained. That’s the reward for defending the belt that many times.

        • Dayman Macklin

          I definitely don’t think he deserves it. If he had moved up immediately after that fight with Hendricks? Sure. 4 years of inactivity with a few contenders waiting and an interim champion established for no reason, I can’t see how GSP deserves it.

          • mike

            He’s one of the GOAT and hasn’t been officially defeated since 2007 (even though I would have scored his last fight for Hendricks on damage).

            Whittaker probably deserves the first shot, but he’s only really beaten two name guys ever, and he got his ass beat a few times at WW.

          • Dayman Macklin

            I would have less of an issue if he came back and got a WW title shot. Still some issue but less. Going up to fight Bisping after Bisping already fought a name instead of top contender in Dan Henderson at a weight class he’s never fought at bothers me. And it sucks because, where was this willingness to move up when everyone wanted to see GSP/Silva?

  • mike

    My one hope for streaming if it all changes is that entertainment companies each have a low cost streaming service. I don’t watch too many things, so I would only need like 3-4 subs.

  • Mikey

    Kenny you still have the same phone number? Trying to save numbers for NYC

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      Yessir! Call or text anytime! You’re my friend!

      • Dwayne

        Especially 4 am when you are drunk

        • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

          Even then….I’d pick my friends up and drive them home.

          • Mikey

            You might have to 🙂

          • Dwayne

            I haven’t tried this yet

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            Always available to you!

      • Mikey

        Alright, I’ll shoot you a text in a bit.

  • I’m going to go home now………….I should work out………..I don’t want to work out.. I’ll let you know if I work out

    • mike

      Baseball fights, eh?

      CUE UP THE BAND!

      • Matt_InGeeked

        What a nutcase, lol

  • FriendshipIsTheBest!

    Hey guys, if Disney is pulling out of Netflix, what happens to all those Marvel shows? I figured Defenders and Punisher will still debut on Netflix, but what about Iron First season 2?

    • Matt_InGeeked

      It appears the original marvel shows stay.

    • The Marvel shows are a separate deal.

      • FriendshipIsTheBest!

        Those are the only shows I watch!

  • This is a good sports fight.

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      Not uprooting fighting…they should work together!

  • I should’ve taken a nap today. God damn, I’m exhausted. Thank God I have the next two days off. End of the month is gonna suck, though. Of the 14 days I’m working between now and August 31, I’m closing 10 of them. That’s fucking ridiculous.

    • Marv

      A nap is never wrong.

  • mike

    Hidden ball tricks!

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Copacabana is a good song.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Let’s watch Dusty vs. The Shockmaster Big Bubba Steelman Typhoon Tugboat in a cage match …

    • TatR!

      They’re saying we shouldn’t

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        Well it’s too late now. It’s a-happenin’.

  • Marv

    We went for a walk around the block. It took a half an hour.

  • TatR!

    We just watched The Incredible Jessica James Netflix movie. It was nice. Light entertainment.

  • WorldWide Duck

    I don’t understand why people subscribe to every streaming service at the same time. I just get Hulu. Before that I just had Netflix.

    I always have Prime, but that’s more for the free shipping.

    • Marv

      I watch stuff on everything so I get everything.

      • WorldWide Duck

        That seems as expensive as cable.

        • Marv

          Probably. I’m not bothered by paying for cable too so…

    • TatR!

      I still have 4 months left of the Prime I got for my last job at the Uni, they paid for it! Gotta make the most of that sweet sweet free shipping

    • I don’t understand any of it, but people do what they do.

      • TatR!

        it might be quicker to list the things you do understand.

        • I essentially pay about 40 bucks a month for WWE Network, so glass houses and all that.

    • Mikey

      It’s good to have them. I still save money, I think.

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      I currently have 3 and watch them regularly enough.

  • TatR!

    I think the only things we ever watched on Amazon TV were Transparent (great) and The Americans (basically stupid). We quit on the Americans after 8 episodes. There’s a show called I Love Dick thats meant to be good

    • WorldWide Duck

      I watched Ken Burns Baseball.

      • TatR!

        yeah that doesn’t sound like something we’d watch

    • Marv

      Prime Video is free as far as I’m concerned, I was paying for it for years anyway

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        Exactly. It’s just a nice bonus for me.

    • Diddly

      I liked Red Oaks!

      • TatR!

        Oh okay. I’m sure there’s good stuff on there but it’s like, you never hear about it. But whenever anything hits Netflix everywhere is abuzz

        • Diddly

          I feel like most people only use Prime for shipping and don’t even know about the bonus features like TV and Music. They do a horrible job of advertising it

  • Blackjack Jowalsen

    So apparently people knew that I was going to be at two campuses this year in June. But in all that time, no one took the time to… you know… TELL ME ABOUT IT.

    • Marv

      Surprise!

      • Blackjack Jowalsen

        The only notice I received was a boiler plate e-mail they send to all the staff at the new school to tell them their schedules.

    • TatR!

      Hey, Jowalsen’s here! Hello!

      • Blackjack Jowalsen

        Hello. I’m a Blackjack now. I don’t remember why, really.

        • TatR!

          It happens

  • mike

    I could watch defensive baseball highlights for hours.

  • WorldWide Duck

    The neighborhood dildo is driving his dirt bike up and down the street. It’s very loud and annoying.

    • TatR!

      I fucking HATE the moped people we have on our street. Middle aged crisis fucks.

      • WorldWide Duck

        It’s slightly more annoying than his normal activity of standing in his garage and dancing to loud Linkin Park on his boombox.

        • chicagodem79

          Ouch.

        • Don’t knock it, they’re legends

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            Nah.

          • Marv

            In that when I hear them I want to get on a ledge and end it.

          • TatR!

            Linkin Park were great. Sad times.

          • Marv

            I won’t lie, that first album was fucking fire. After that I was out but wow that first album was just a hit machine.

          • TatR!

            Lot of great stuff on the later albums too Marv!

          • Marv

            Probably but the only new music I’m checking out these days teaches the alphabet so unless they have songs like that

          • TatR!

            No, they don’t. I mean I guess the lyrics contain the alphabet. They Might Be Giants made some kids albums, you should check them out!

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            I was just about to bring that up.

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            That first album….holy God it was good. The Fort Minor side project thing was dope, too.

          • I actually have the mash up album that they did with Jay-Z. It’s not the worst thing that I ever heard. They’re just sort of drama queens.

          • Marv

            That album seemed so good at the time but it really doesn’t hold up. They hadn’t really figured out the mash-up yet.

      • Marv

        We have a boy that goes up and down on his motorized skateboard all day. Just ZIIIIIIIIIIIIING all afternoon, it’s so loud. I have to contantly remind myself that I would think that was the coolest thing in history when I was 12 and I’d be riding it all day too.

        • TatR!

          If someone is 12 it’s acceptable.

          • Marv

            Barely. It’s sooooo loud. He only seems to do it in the afternoon though so it’s fine. If he did it every morning during nap time there would be a serious problem.

          • WorldWide Duck

            This man looks forty. Or he might just be dirty. Or both.

    • If I could blink people out of existence, those who own loud cars and such would be first cut.

      • TatR!

        There definitely should be noise pollution laws against most cars and bikes.

  • TatR!

    Prety stoked for GSP vs Bisping tbh

    I think a catcher throwing out a base stealer is my favorite play in baseball.

  • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

    I’m learning about Mesosphere today….unlike Kubernetes, it’s only a suite of packages you have to install on top of Linux. But, on the positive side, it looks pretty handy. But there’s something called DC/OS and I haven’t figured out how that fits into everything.

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      Way to go, dummy. Mesosphere makes D.C./OS, which is a Linux based OS.

  • I’ve never felt this way before
    SO IN-SEC-UUUURE!!!

  • TatR!

    The mini golf work night out that I spaghetti’d is tomorrow and I can’t be bothered to go now. New job this week and bachelor party Fridayy/Saturday who can be bothered meeting up with second tier work friends so

  • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

    Oh wow…I’m listening to this show on Shade 45 and they’re talking to a guy who tests drugs….it turns out almost none of the coke in NYC is pure and if you do MDNA anywhere, it’s basically just bath salts….

    Sooooo happy I’m straight edge!

    • None of the blow you find anywhere is pure, most of the time, they cut it to increase their quantity to sell.

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        I didn’t realize how much, though!

    • I did MDMA and cocaine at a bachelor party earlier this year. First time that I’ve done drugs in like 7 or 8 years. It will also the last. It blew me the fuck away and I was sketched out for two days following.

      Fun night though.

      • TatR!

        “Modern music? No thanks. I don’t go for that kind of tomfoolery. MDMA? Inject it straight into my goddamn veins.”

        • Once in 7 years!

          • TatR!

            Man, I haven’t done an illegal drug since 2005. They’re probably healthier for me than all the energy drinks I consume.

          • Oh yeah, I don’t touch those.

        • TatR gets a rare upvote from me.

          • TatR!

            Always appreciated.

        • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

          I laughed so hard, I literally had tears. Lena asked what’s so funny and I tried reading this outloud, but couldn’t without laughing….

      • I feel like this SHOULD be shocking information, but it isn’t.

  • Marv

    I can’t figure out if finding Leah Remini annoying is because she’s super annoying or because I’ve fallen for Scientology propaganda

    • The Scientology thing.

    • TatR!

      I keep meaning to listen to her Joe Rogan podcast

    • chicagodem79

      The answer is ALWAYS annoying

    • mike

      I’m SO glad I didn’t encounter Scientology earlier in life, because I might have gone for it.

      • chicagodem79

        Those Dianetics commercials I saw as a kid were always SUPER creepy and scared me lol.

        • Marv

          Yes dude! Church would talk about heaven and roads of gold and stuff and those commercials were like VOLCANOES LIFE IS MOLTEN LAVA wtf?!

          • The only thing I remember of those commercials was the volcanoes and a voice over guy going, “L. RON HUBBARD! DIANETICS! AVAILABLE NOW!”

            Had no idea what the fuck it was talking about.

        • TatR!

          I bought the Dianetics book like a decade ago out of curiosity. It’s genuinely unreadable, easily the worst book I’ve ever (attempted to) read.

          • mike

            There’s a bookstore at the mall a town over that had an entire rack of L. Ron Hubbard’s pre Scientology scifi writing. I wanted to buy a bunch, but I didn’t know where that money was going.

          • TatR!

            I’m not sure it’s worth even the curiosity factor, they’re really bad books

          • mike

            I figured two things:

            1. I’ll pirate them.
            2. That’s still overpaying,

          • chicagodem79

            From the little bits I’ve read about Scientology as such, I’m not surprised. I’m kind of disappointed it’s not at least entertainingly bad….just bad and not readable.

          • TatR!

            Yeah it was a shame. Not even fun to laugh at. Just genuine garbage and amazing anyone would feel differently.

            I tried reading it once, too, and it’s just gibberish. Fair play to him for getting a cult out of it.

  • One of my coworkers got knocked down by a car, called off being checked out by an EMS and then came to work, where she started to be in a lot of pain and had huge bruises. I had to put her in a cab to go to the hospital.

    • chicagodem79

      Let me guess, no health insurance.

    • Marv

      The dream is real.

    • Diddly

      I’m gonna be a dick and assume she had to come to work first to prove she was hurt, otherwise they would have called her a liar

      • Eh, not really. I honestly think getting knocked over by the car gave her a concussion and she wasn’t thinking straight.

    • TatR!

      Man, I call in when I get the sniffles. The girl I’m taking over from in this new job told me she’s been off twice in the last two years and one of those was a car accident. Gonna have to up my attendance game.

      • It’s silly not to use days if you have them. I mean, not to the point where you make sure you use ALL your sick days – they’re meant as insurance, not extra time off – but you shouldn’t go in to work if you’re not feeling well.

        • TatR!

          We don’t really have Sick Days as like a resource to use. The Uni just has rules that if you go over 10 total days or 3 different periods or something you have to go through A Process

          • Diddly

            All of the jobs I’ve ever worked have basically been “you have to come in no matter what”, but if you’re bad enough they would have sent you home anyway

            My current job has no sick days, so you have to use PTO. If I just have a cold, I’m saving my PTO days and getting everyone else sick.

          • chicagodem79

            Fortunately, we can work from home, so we are STRONGLY encouraged, unless it’s a pants on fire meeting you have to be in the office for, stay home and don’t get other people sick lol. Of course other departments within my company have differing policies, so we still see a lot of sick people in the office.

          • TatR!

            What’s PTO?

          • mike

            paid time off

          • Diddly

            Paid Time Off, so vacation days essentially

          • TatR!

            ah right okay. Yeah the uni’s pretty lenient I guess

    • mike

      My new job is on contract, no PTO. If I get hit by a car, I’m working.

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      AT&T would make you work even if you were in the hospital. A co-worker got called by her boss 8 times the day she delivered her daughter and was answering e-mail almost the entire time.

      • chicagodem79

        Good God, the stories you have about AT&T are frightening lol.

        • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

          It was Hell. I had to go to therapy while working there.

      • I feel like several lawsuits can be filed – or at least a ton of negative press – based on your AT&T stories…

        • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

          Probably. There’s no way most of that is legal.

          They did give me a fat sack of cash to not sue them, though.

          • See? They know what they’re doing is wrong!

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            Oh, they totally know. They just don’t care. They also pay most people really, really well. Where they messed up was paying me and the other “young” engineers like shit and then trying to play the “but you’re so well paid here..” card when we raised issues. That and a lawyer friend of mine sending them a list of stuff I told him about on his letterhead…they did not see that coming.

  • mike

    I love this. Jon Lester has the yips about throwing to first for years, and doesn’t even attempt it his first 2.5 seasons with the Cubs. Then this:

    • Marv

      That’s great, the crowd just starts laughing

  • mike

    Speaking of cults, my favorite new one (new as in I didn’t know about it) is the Order of the Solar Temple:

    http://www.swissinfo.ch/eng/series-of-killings_the-1994-solar-temple-cult-deaths-in-switzerland/40878686

    • chicagodem79

      Sounds like something that would’ve been on Legends of the Hidden Temple on Nick…..

      • mike

        A little more fire, but yeah….

    • TatR!

      16 bodies found in a forest. Creepy as fuck.

      • mike

        My favorite part is the video footage of their rituals (there’s a longer doc I watched a while back).

        I am utterly fascinated by these kinds of groups that buy into these bizarre rituals and beliefs because one guy says it’s what reality is.

        • TatR!

          Yeah. I guess it’s just different personalities. I don’t think I ever 100% believe anything. I’m always just like yeah whatever this is how I feel right now but who knows. I could never fully commit to something like that.

          • Marv

            I’ve changed my mind way too much over the years to believe I’m ever really 100% right about anything.

          • mike

            I could just never be convinced that I could join a secret organization that descends from the Knights Templar and protects valuable magic religious objects and by the way we’ll take anyone who will join.

          • TatR!

            Folks used to obsess about the Freemasons, and some still do. And we were at wedding a couple of years ago at a place that also doubles as a Lodge and there were signs up saying “Join the Masons!” and it kind of belied their ostensible status as a secret conspiracy.

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            Dude, the Masons are like the most harmless group ever. They have recruitment drives!

          • mike

            I worked with a Mason. He’s also a prepper.

          • It hasn’t been a secret society for years. They let anyone apply.

            My dad was a Mason in the old days. You had to be sponsored and invited.

    • Marv

      My favorite will always be the Hail Boppers. That was fascinating as hell.

      • mike

        I like to think Mmmm Bop! was playing while they drank the Kool Aid.

        My favorite bit of theirs is that they left a guy behind to maintain their website, and he still is.

        • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

          That’s the job to get in a cult!

  • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

    We should make a cult! It seems like a good way to make money!

    • TatR!

      dude we JUST escaped one

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        Good point…

        But this time, we should own it!

    • You’re here, aren’t you?

      Though, I’m not as good a cult leader as Scott. That man is the Paul Heyman of blog owners

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        You’re pretty great. You just need a gimmick like hating on WWE booking while obsessively reviewing every hour of their programming for 20 years…

    • Diddly

      We need someone to make daily hot takes too!

    • I’m not into cults.

      • mike

        cults are interesting. Cult probably has borderline personality disorder.

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        But we were all in one together!

        • I still go there! Just not in the day time because I’m on my phone and my phone rejects those ads like a baboon heart.

  • mike
    • TatR!

      Oh man, it would be a hoot to believe this stuff. Wednesday evenings would be a lot more interesting.

      • mike

        This site makes me incredibly nostalgic for 90s Internet.

        • TatR!

          The makers of Twin Peaks set up a fake geocities looking site for the blog by one of the Season 3 characters here: http://thesearchforthezone.com/

          • mike

            LOL I’m looking at that side by side with the HG one, and WOW.

        • Marv

          I was praying for a hit counter lol

      • chicagodem79

        It’s weird, I’d imagine it might be kind of empowering to have complete belief in something to give your life direction. The problem is, if it’s a scam, then it ALWAYS ends badly.

        • mike

          Technically, I think every single thing except one would have to be wrong, since they all say they are the only right ones…..

        • Marv

          I see the appeal in that, like just being able to let go and do whatever you’re told.

          Thankfully I met my wife so

        • TatR!

          I mean I guess these guys believed all the way to the end, and now they don’t exist. So I guess they were happy.

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      Hey, they got free videotapes.

    • Marv

      They have a whole page talking about how suicide is really staying here on earth and not graduating to the next level. Here they discuss what could happen to them in the meantime:

      “Another possibility is that, because of the position we take in our information, we could find so much disfavor with the powers that control this world that there could be attempts to incarcerate us or to subject us to some sort of psychological or physical torture (such as occurred at both Ruby Ridge and Waco).”

      ………alllllllright then

      • chicagodem79

        Yikes lol

      • mike

        I loved the doc I watched where they talked to a couple people who left. They had a system for EVERYTHING, right down to how you brush your teeth – which direction and whatnot.

        It all boils down to the leader being gay and not being able to accept it, and so he had to control every moment of his day so he wouldn’t have… uh… gay episodes.

  • mike

    I love knowing enough about cults to creep my wife out a bit.

  • Brian_Bayless
    • Marv

      Hahahahaha this is the greatest image ever posted in these threads

    • mike

      Fuck all of them. Dominos is my go-to chain pizza place. We had it last night, in fact.

      • “No Days Jose” Gomez

        Domino’s has gone up in quality

        • mike

          It’s like the best kept secret since they revamped everything. Everyone is used to them being dogshit, and now it’s really good.

      • Brian_Bayless

        TIL: Mike hates REAL NY Pizza

    • TatR!

      Hmm.

    • chicagodem79

      Never had Papa Murphy’s or Godfather’s, or Cici’s…..MY favorite national chain pizza is Little Caesars, but that’s a controversial opinion to some….

      • mike

        I don’t hate little caesars.

        Godfather’s sauce has too much of an olive taste or something.

        Don’t know Papa Murphy’s, but Papa John’s can kiss my ass with his overly sugar filled sauce.

      • “No Days Jose” Gomez

        Cici’s and Little Ceasars aren’t too bad when you’re in a pinch

  • Marv

    Christ on a turntable I thought this Heavens Gate website had piss poor writing when I was in high school, it’s even worse now. Who the fuck would buy into this?

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      I dunno. They are making some strong points about shit…

  • Facts

    You make a lot of friends in a cult! Plus those orgies!

    • mike

      Heavens Gate repressed sexuality. That’s why the women mostly had an androgynous look.

      • Facts

        Ewwwwwwww

    • You can’t believe everything cult says.

  • Rowlf

    “You WHAT?”

    “Come again, Marge?”

    “You WHAT?”

    “I’ve joined the Movementarians, and so have all of you!”

    “We WHAT?”

    “All I had to give them was our life savings, the deed to the house and a commitment of ten trillion years of labour!”

    “I can’t go along with this, Homer!”

    “Marge, when I join an underground cult I expect a little support from my family!”

  • Marv

    I almost started digging into the 22 point statement by an alien to humanity and realized I just had to to hit X or this was going to be my entire afternoon

    • Good man

      • Marv

        In the last month or so I’ve gotten a lot better at sleeping and not falling into rabbit holes of annoyance. Weeeeeird.

        • Yeah, the you sleeping thing is driving me crazy. This place dies once you go to bed.

          • Marv

            I am the bees knees, after all.

    • chicagodem79

      These are the times I miss working downtown so I could take the train instead of driving. I would be ALL over that stuff during my commute.

  • FriendshipIsTheBest!

    You guys are thinking of starting a cult? What do we need that for when we have FRIENDSHIP?!

    • Mikey

      I think it would be wise for you to start drinking. 😀

  • mike

    …… I should claim to be Do (the heaven’s gate leader) reincarnated to gather the second flock for ascending to the level above human.

    Oh man……

  • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

    Just got back from picking up comics. Doctor Aphra and 3 Kirby reprints. DC = no buys!

    • I thought about the Kirby tributes DC did today, but they were too expensive.

      • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

        Yeah, I’m not really interested in a News Boy Legion special.

        • I always liked the News Boy Legion. But not at $4.99.

          • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

            Marvel’s dollar reprints are a much better idea.

        • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

          I love the News Boy Legion stuff when Manhattan Guardian shows up.

    “HEAVEN’S GATE “Away Team” Returns to Level Above Human in Distant Space

    RANCHO SANTO FE, CA — By the time you receive this, we’ll be gone — several dozen of us. We came from the Level Above Human in distant space and we have now exited the bodies that we were wearing for our earthly task, to return to the world from whence we came — task completed. The distant space we refer to is what your religious literature would call the Kingdom of Heaven or the Kingdom of God.”

    I could totally say I’m this guy. Everyone loves a sequel nowadays, right?

  • mike

    By the way, Heaven’s Gate “Away Team” must = Star Trek Red Shirts.

  • Lotta talk about cults and weiners today.

    • mike

      I can’t really be here too much from the new job, so I gotta get the important talk in when possible.

    • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

      Cult doesn’t post here. But plenty of wieners do.

    • Blackjack Jowalsen

      I think Heaven’s Gate people chopped off their wieners, now that I think about it.

  • FriendshipIsTheBest!

    Well, I guess if we start a cult, we should establish some ground rules:

    1. No tickling!
    2. Everyone shares! Even small packets of m&ms!
    3. We wear matching shirts!

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      Yes! And you and I can do the website!

  • Devin Harris

    spaghetti bake for dinner tonight.

  • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

    Watching soooooo many distributed computing YouTube videos…

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    So…the folks on Maury have become more animated in their reactions.

    Battle one- Lady finds out the dude is the baby daddy and does a back handspring to celebrate.

    Battle two- Guy finds out he isn’t the baby daddy and does a handstand.

    Battle three- Guy finds out he isn’t the baby daddy and his mom does the splits while the accuser literally throws a temper tantrum on the floor (she had been there three times previous and was now 0 for 4).

    • I need to attend a taping of Maury. That’s Bucket List material.

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        That sounds like an awesome idea!

      • For my wife as well.

      • chicagodem79

        I’ve been to a Judge Mathis taping, I wonder how long the waiting list is for Maury.

        • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

          If you want to go on Aug 16, 17, or the 32, the waitlist is none!

    • Devin Harris

      i would like to see a show dedicated to people who found their dad on Maury

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        I would like to find a grown one so I can go “Awwww man, you were a Maury baby!?”

        • Devin Harris

          that’s what I mean. How did those Maury babies turn out?

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            I am sure they turned out just fine.

          • Marv

            I’m sure they all grew up great and are very well adjusted now.

    • I saw one chick on there that was 0 for 13. You gotta figure that she could narrow the window of conception down to what, a couple of weeks? Seems like a lot of suspects.

  • TatR!

    goodnight comrades

  • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

    Maury tapings have available tickets on August 17th!!

    • Marv

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        That’s a yes?

        • Marv

          That is tempting as a motherfucker.

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            Right?

          • chicagodem79

            Ha, if I could just pick up and go to NYC, I would totally do that lol

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            You can! The beauty of life is you can do anything you want!

          • Marv

            I already have plans for most of that day. Oh well.

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            But you’ll go chase an eclipse on a moment’s notice…

          • He doesn’t actually wanna spend THAT much time with us, Ken.

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            But we’re all friends! Of course he does!

          • Your gimmicks are bleeding into each other.

          • Marv

            Well yeah, that’s fascinating. I’m not actually that big of a Maury guy.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            Wanna go to The Wendy Williams show?

          • Marv

            Now that I could be into. I am utterly amazed at her inability to finish a thought.

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            Looking now…

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            I am fascinated by her boobs.

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            Sadly, availability starts in September…

          • Brian_Bayless
          • Mr. Money On The Table

            Damn. You could have brought the Marv head. It wouldn’t have worked but imagine if it had!

    • Isn’t it taped in Stamford, Connecticut? Amazing that Maury gets crowd reactions Vince could only dream of.

    • I’m unavailable.

    • I would definitely do that if i was in the area

  • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

    The girl that made my salad was estremely stingy with the non-vegetables.

  • Devin Harris

    I’m certain some kids are second generation Maury

  • mike

    I saw a grade school classmate on Judge Joe Brown once. It said she was a stripper. I wasn’t surprised.

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      An old roommate dated a guy who was on Judge Judy once.

      • mike

        Did she dress him down?

        • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

          Yep! He said it was hard not to laugh. The show also pays the fines she gives.

          • You both get paid to appear, and whatever is awarded comes out of your purse and goes to the other party. That’s how People’s Court worked anyhow.

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            Oh. Maybe that’s how it worked. I just remember he was happy because he didn’t have to pay the fine out of his own pocket.

  • mike

    Gah, Cubs offense is feast or famine these days. It’s either a 10 run rout or they struggle to score 3.

  • I like how the women on here are like “HE LOOKS JUST LIKE YOU! HE LOOKS JUST LIKE YOU!”

    No, he doesn’t, it’s a baby, it looks like a mutant for the first five years or so.

    • Marv

      Nah there are always parts that look terrifyingly similar.

      • mike

        Conor McGregor’s baby looks like he’s already had a few fights.

    • So you’ve never actually seen a baby then?

      • I’ve seen my baby pictures, so there’s…oh…wait, shit.

      • Marv

        Seriously every baby I’ve ever seen it’s like “Oh yeah he’s yours. Look at that nose. Look at those eyebrows.” Or whatever.

        • I assume this is something only parents agree on.

          • Marv

            Well yeah, the people around babies do know how babies work that’s true lol

        • Marv

          My son and I share cowlicks it’s all rather tragic lol

        • “No Days Jose” Gomez

          I remember looking back at my baby pictures. I basically looked like my mom and then somehow morphed into looking like my dad as I got older

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Ugh. The lead guy on the Young Turks won’t stop talking! I wanna see the lady one. She intrigues me..

  • ZXAVIER! THIS KID’S NAME IS ZXAVIER!

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      OMG!!

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      Yes!!!!!! You are watching the episode I just described!!!!

    • mike

      What cult was he born in?

    • chicagodem79

      How the hell do you pronounce that? lol

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        Exactly like it’s spelled…

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        The x is silent

      • RudoWakening

        Zee-Ex-Avier, duh.

  • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

    If anyone wants to come to NYC in the future, here’s the activities:

    – Go to Sbarro for pizza
    – Wendy William’s taping
    – The PIT for an improv show
    – WWE PPV at Boxer’s, the gay sports bar

    • I’m not doing any of that.

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        Do you hate fun? It’s the WWE PPV right? That does sound pretty awful…

        • We’re not watching the Summer Slam. We’re watching The Defenders. This was all decided months ago.

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            That sounds MUCH better…

      • Marv

        I’ll bring you Sbarro.

    • mike

      I’ll go to Boxer’s but not for WWE.

    • I went to some place that’s supposed to be the oldest Alehouse in the city. They only serve dark or light. That’s it.

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        Hmmm…wonder where that is…

        • I think the oldest ale house in the city is Fraunces Tavern, right across the street from where I work.

      • You were down by my office?

        • Is your office near that place? McSomethings I think.

          • Oh, McSorely’s?

          • Yeah that’s it. It was pretty fun. One of my colleagues was talking to an American dude there but he’d spent time in Canada so when he found out we were Canadian he’s like “Canada? I love Canada!” And starts singing O Canada.

            We all (like 8 of us) stand and sing with him. Then the rest of the place, which was packed to the rafters, decide that they can’t let that go unanswered, and belt out the Star Spangled Banner, which damn near shook the place apart.

            Then totally randomly 4 sailors walked in wearing their whites and literally got picked up and carried around while everyone chanted USA.

            I thought we were going to get beat up, but it ended well.

    • Mikey

      I’m landing Friday and I want to start drinking immediately, whatever we do. Thanks!

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        This is more from September onwards. We can’t get Wendy tickets until then…

      • Marv

        This is a solid plan.

        • Mikey

          I can’t wait. I”m starting to realize it’s happening soon.

          • Marv

            48 hours from now I’ll be crossing into Idaho, every day I’m a little bit more Kid on Christmas Eve

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            What a weird reaction towards being in Idaho.

    • FriendshipIsTheBest!

      Good list! If I ever visit NYC, I’d like you to show me around, Kenny!!!

    • “No Days Jose” Gomez

      NYCC…don’t forget that

    • RudoWakening

      I played a game of Great Baseball (sega master system, 1987) earlier. I won 32-6.

    I feel like I’ve missed a bunch of good stuff today due to actually having to do work at my job.

    • Marv

      It was an ok day. We talked about stuff, and there was a two hour gif break in the middle.

    • I didn’t really contribute much.

      • I feel like we all contributed a lot today.

      • Matt_InGeeked

        I live in a small town in the south. I can buy your land for 3 oxen.

        • RudoWakening

          I don’t know why, but I am always surprised that you live in the South

          • Matt_InGeeked

            Because I’m from the north.

          • WorldWide Duck

            It’s because he doesn’t refer to all types of sodas as “coke.”

          • Matt_InGeeked

            This is true.

        • But I don’t need any oxen.

          • Matt_InGeeked

            Well, that’s not my problem.

          Oh man. I used to write matches for e-feds. All my matches were at least ***1/2

    • RudoWakening

      I am in favour of this

  • The Professor

    I have known several people that went to private school and most of them say it is not worth the money (if you have other options).
    My district is massive so parents can easily find a great school (public and charter).
    Smaller districts it would be much harder to find good options

    • Marv

      My kid is going to public school. I don’t feel he’ll ever be strong enough to protect this castle if he doesn’t face the wildlings first.

    • The Silver Fox

      The high school choices in my district are 1 public high school, a K-12 Christian school and a K-12 Mennonite school.

      • The Professor

        Hmmmm Mennonite. That sounds ……. interesting

        • The Silver Fox

          It doesn’t teach kids how to farm with horses and the drivers ed doesn’t involve horse drawn buggies.

          • The Professor

            So what does it teach then

          • Marv

            To be Men! Mennonites!
            They worship weird shit and never get into fights!
            They’re Men! Mennonites! (Mennonites)
            They hardly ever drink and probably vote alt-right!

          • The Professor

            Love that movie

          • Marv

            Quite possibly the funniest thing ever put to film

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            I dunno. There are some early plane crash videos that are pretty damned funny.

          • The Silver Fox
          • Marv

            Already watching this in another tab hahahaha

          • The Silver Fox

            Same thing that any other Christian school would. They also have a college that emphasizes things like social work, health care, education and the ministry. Our daughter actually looked into attending it, but the tuition cost was quite a bit higher than the state colleges.

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        Lousy shiftless Mennonites.

  • The Professor

    Currently watching burn notice. Great rewatchable show

  • The Silver Fox

    A trip to the White House could be the end of Journey.

  • Dayman Macklin

    Nice I figured out how to display page numbers on my kindle instead of location number. I also figured out how to change the font, size, line spacing, margin size, and how to flip it to landscape. All this 8 months after owning the thing.

    • Marv

      I got a Fire and bought 5,000 comics and am just like “What? A novel? That doesn’t have pictures.”

      • Dayman Macklin

        You never ended up returning the fire after the advertisement debacle?

        The only bummer about the Fire is no Marvel Unlimited app or I would be reading like craaaaazy on there.

        • Marv

          No I found out you can pay them extra and they’ll remove the advertisements. And then I never did that because I got tired of it all.

          I almost exclusively read DC so I’ve just ended up spending like $250+ in the last few months on stupid trades, half of them that I didn’t even enjoy reading but I couldn’t stop

          • Dayman Macklin

            lol I’ve been intending to read some of the books I piled up from DC and also some I bought on Amazon during their insane Marvel sale but I’ve not gotten around to all that yet.

  • Marv

    “You changed it to Latrine?”
    “Yeah! It used to be shithouse!”
    “That’s a good change! Goooooood change.”

    The movie is so good even Richard Lewis can’t ruin it.

  • The Silver Fox

    Which would you rather watch: Men in Tights or Spaceballs?

    • Marv

      Oh jeez, that’s a Sophie’s Choice right there

    • Wow. Tough call. Men in Tights by a hair, though.

    • RudoWakening

      Oh come on, that’s not fair

      • The Silver Fox

        How about History of the World, Part One?

        • The Professor

          I’m still waiting for the sequel

        • RudoWakening

          History of the World and it’s not even close.

          • The Silver Fox

            Agreed. The best of his eighties and nineties films.

    • The Professor

      Spaceballs but just barely

      • Marv

        I think I agree. It’s so close but man, Spaceballs is too funny. It was also the film I’d seen first and most loved as a kid.

    • Not overly fond of either. Probably men in tights.

    • Matt_InGeeked

      Spaceballs by a nose. But I love both so much.

    • “No Days Jose” Gomez

      Spaceballs, but by a hair

  • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

    I think my favorite Mel Brooks memory is that when Dom DeLuise died, my local news radio station played a clip of his acting. Which clearly nobody checked beforehand because it was from Blazing Saddles and had the other f-word in it.

  • The Silver Fox

    Other than The Twelve Chairs (which I’ve only seen once many years ago) the only Mel Brooks films I don’t like are Life Stinks and Dracula: Dead and Loving It.

  • Interesting Peyton fact.. my Direct tv package shouldn’t have el rey network…. I don’t get el rey network….unless I dvr it….then it records….I get Lucha and anything I want to DVR but can’t watch the channel live

    • Marv

      That is interesting!

      • We got a free preview so I started taping Lucha and then it went away …then suddenly I was recording it again.. and I was like cool they must have given me the channel on my package. During an ep I saw Godzilla weekend was coming so I went to watch that weekend and direct tv told me I didn’t have the channel. I was like…crap I can’t watch Lucha anymore…then the next Wed. Lucha taped and I was like………hold up whuuuuuu?

        • Marv

          That’s awesome.

          • yeah and Lucha is the one wrestling show Blanche is pretty ok with me watching because it’s all action and over the topness

          • Dayman Macklin

            She doesn’t like you watching wrestling that’s slow Burn booking and grounded? What a mark.

          • she doesn’t like boring and embarrassingly bad

    • RudoWakening

      That is odd.

  • HEY! Meet-up contingent who are planning to go to the Mets game Saturday night!

    Can I have someone’s Cespedes bobblehead?

          • Marv

            …haha yes well maybe websites always put it in local time and maybe certain people aren’t smart enough to account for that ok

          • Maybe…

            Underrated cool thing: Phones/watches that can automatically switch time zones when you are travelling across them. That used to be so annoying back in the day.

    • Marv

      Absolutely.

    The cool thing about Chris Regal is that Bayless can name his baby after him whether it’s a boy or girl

  • Matt_InGeeked

    I loved Anchorman, but I didn’t care for Anchorman 2, except for Carrell/Whig scenes.

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      I forgot she was in that.

      • Matt_InGeeked

        I forget half the movie.

    • You used a trident?

    • Matt_InGeeked

      LOVED, YOU FUCK.

    • Marv

      I never bothered to watch Anchorman 2. I have a rule where if the sequel comes out more than three years later it is guaranteed to be terrible.

      • Matt_InGeeked

        Probably correct.

        • Marv

          Particularly with comedy it usually has to still be inside whatever cultural norms the first one came about in.

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        I saw it when it hit Netflix. One part made me laugh.

      • But Zooland…i see your point

      • actually name like 5 good comedy sequels…… sequels and comedy just tend not to work

        • Marv

          Yeah that’s a pretty fair statement too

          • What ever was special about it is too known so it either isn’t enough like the first or too much of a copy of the first

        • ProjectBlue

          Super hard to do, you get to far away and it’s not what people liked the first time. Stick too close and it’s just a rehash. I didn’t mind Ghostbusters 2, Hangover 2, Airplane 2, Naked Gun 2 1/2 for example. I wouldn’t call them good but humored me at times

          • Ghostbusters 2 is only watchable because Bill puts that movie on his back and wills every scene he is in to be fun

          • I never got the hate for Ghostbusters 2. I always enjoy it.

          • I like it but know it’s not a good movie

          • If you like it, it’s a good movie. That should really be the only criteria.

          • ProjectBlue

            It just wasn’t the original. If it was the only Ghostbusters movie ever, people would love it. Still had a few highly memorable bits. Vigo, Statue of Liberty, Venkman’s tv show

          • Marv

            Wayne’s World 2 is ok

          • if for nothing else but Charlton Heston

          • Marv

            Hot Shots Part Deux!

          • well yes.. ok you got me there

          • Marv

            It’s the only sequel I can think of that is truly hilarious. The rest are, like you and Blue are saying, just kind of rehashes

          • RudoWakening

            Naked Gun 2 1/2!

    • ProjectBlue

      I’m glad it got made but yeah, wasn’t near the original. I kinda thought they went overboard on Carrell/Wiig stuff and it would have worked better in smaller doses

    • I watched that male model picture that Will Farrell was in and it was mentally scarring in how awful it was so I never watched another Will Ferrell picture.

      Except Old School because it had that scene where the guy tied the cinder block to his dick and throws it off the building.

      • Marv

        That would be Zoolander and it’s one of the funniest movies ever made.

        • God, how are we friends…

          • Marv

            Simple, we only see each other three days a year lol

          • Right… fair point.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            The checks still clear. That’s how.

        • It was basically the worst thing I’ve ever seen.

          • Marv

            Oh boo at you

          • Matt_InGeeked

            He doesn’t like seeing Lorelei Gilmore regularly too.

          • Marv

            Pssh more like Mister_Gay_Mahn that’s what I’m talking about yep

      • ProjectBlue

        I don’t like Stiller on a good day so pretty much hated Zoolander. It irks me one of the stooges picked a Zoolander quote for his yearbook

        • Marv

          Kid sounds awesome.

      • Miko363

        Will Ferrell to me is like the sixth man of movies. Ask him to be the 4th best player on your team and give you 10 points a game off the bench and you’re fine. He’ll occasionally go off for 25 out of nowhere, too.

        If you suddenly decide to build your entire team around him, you’re fucked.

  • Matt_InGeeked

    Anytime I see a P&R gif it makes me want to watch the show all over again.

    • Judge Mahn on the other hand…

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        Also, not a judge.

  • I’m not seeing enough love for The Blues Brothers in this discussion.

    • Marv

      I never got it I guess. I don’t dislike it I just was never a big fan.

      • I’m going to say the fact that it’s a musical that masquerades as a comedy/chase movie muddies the water a bit.

        • Marv

          I don’t think I’ve ever given it a proper watch in my adulthood to be honest. I really should because I know a lot of people that swear by that movie as being legendarily funny

          • The cameos alone make it at least an 8/10. That doesn’t even factor in the rest of the movie.

          • ProjectBlue

            I think that’s mostly it for me. When I was younger “Older dudes celebrating music I’m not into” but once I got older “Hollywood tragedy and guy that won’t stop trying to make Ghostbusters” so never really gave it a fair shot at either age

          • Marv

            Yeah I really am no fan of Akroyd *at all* so I don’t have high hopes, but I should give it a shot

          • He basically plays the straight man to Belushi for two hours. It’s a good spot for him.

          • ProjectBlue

            I like Akroyd at times. Spies like Us, Ghostbusters, Grosse Pointe Blank, but realllly grating at other times

          • Marv

            If he’s just playing straight like Dave said he might be ok, because he’s great at that in Grosse Point and Tommy Boy

          • ProjectBlue

            …hm, yeah, forgot Tommy Boy

          • Marv

            Basically any time he plays a giant douche I’m ok with him, I find it very believable lol

      My high school’s name is featured in the first couple minutes of the film.

    • I watched it very recently for the first time and found it to be inoffensive, other than a prolonged car chase which seemed excessive.

      I didn’t get a harrumph outta that guy.

      Easily the coolest Steve in history.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    He’s a complicated man but no one understands him but his woman…

      Shut yo’ mouth

    Marv brings up an interesting point. There’s a LOT of stuff I didn’t watch when I was a kid/much younger because I thought it was lame “grown-up entertainment”. (with Golden Girls being a prime example, had no interest in it at all as a kid, but watching episodes now, it’s funny as hell). I could probably spend an entire year just watching old stuff for the first time.

    • Marv

      So much stuff dude. And 90% of what we DID watch growing up was littered with jokes I never understood until 25 years later.

    • ProjectBlue

      I’m all over the place on that. Skipped something like Blues Brothers but watched Golden Girls, Murder She Wrote, older stuff like Lucy or Honeymooners.

      • Marv

        Yeah I was into a lot of weird adult stuff as a kid. I thought Golden Girls was hilarious. I was super into DVD and MTM in the middle of the night when I couldn’t sleep. One of my most favorite shows at like eight years old was Sanford and Son lol

        • chicagodem79

          My GF LOVES Sanford and Son and Good Times. She watches those today whenever they randomly come on.

          • Marv

            Redd Foxx is the most underrated comedic actor of all time, every single thing he did was funny

      • chicagodem79

        It’s weird, I DID watch super old stuff like Three Stooges, Lucy, Green Acres, Addams Family (kinda had to with no cable and that stuff was on lol), but there’s like a big gap between the old stuff, and the new stuff that came on when I was younger.

        • Marv

          Yeah it’s all whatever is available. The more I think on it the more I realize a lot of my childhood TV watching was basically whatever the Superstation played a lot of

          • Marv

            Yet oddly I *never* watched WCW

            USA was the wrestling/Cartoon Express channel but for afternoon sitcoms it was TBS all the way

        • ProjectBlue

          Definitely Stooges but that kinda transcends age and is just people hitting each other. We used to get a Boston station that’d run stooges marathons around the holidays.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            AMC used to run a marathon on New Year’s

          • ProjectBlue

            Even before I had AMC or possibly AMC being a thing

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            The channel has been around forever. I think IFC does it now.

          • Marv

            I make it a point to watch Stooges with the boy every so often and that will be ongoing for years. I think an appreciation of the Stooges is necessary to being a good American.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            Damn right!

          • chicagodem79

            I can’t wait until the inevitable complaint “Dad, why are we watching these old black and white tv shows?” lol

          • Marv

            Nah they still translate I think, like Blue said people hitting each other is ALWAYS funny

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            Yeah it is.

          • chicagodem79

            Oh I agree, I can watch Stooges today easily, I’m more mocking today’s youth lol

        • The Silver Fox

          Gilligan’s Island was a favorite of mine for a while as a kid.

          • chicagodem79

            Yep, I definitely remember watching some episodes of that too.

          • Marv

            I watched it a LOT but never really liked it, that and Brady Bunch. They were always on and it was always painful, I just wanted to get to whatever was next.

  • The Silver Fox
  • I’m going to watch the picture Stripes right now. It features Bill Murray who I generally enjoy.

  • Facts
  • 5:28 in and Bill Murray is being a sarcastic dick. That’s why I love Bill Murray.

  • The Silver Fox

    Ginger or Mary Ann?

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Heh heh heh. Moe is their leader..

  • The Silver Fox

    Any love for Shemp, Joe or Curly Joe as the third Stooge?

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      Shemp kinda…the other two can burn in hell.

    • Marv
    • chicagodem79

      Shemp was pretty cool

    • Facts

      Shemp of course. Joe Bessar. Bleeeeeeh.

    • ProjectBlue

      Shemp. Then I get depressed remembering Moe keep trying to get the band back together as everyone around him kept dying

      • The Silver Fox

        He was trying it as late as the late 60’s/early 70’s with longtime Stooge straight man Emil Sitka. Only Larry’s strokes put an end to it.

        • ProjectBlue

          Can’t remember now if it was a legit documentary or just their home video footage but he was soooo old at the end trying to do the routine. And being in color just made it sadder.

    • Marv

      What a terrible gig too. You’re stuck replacing one of the greatest characters of all time. I wonder if the response then was as negative as it is now though? Like did people know then that these guys were going to be legends?

    • I’m a Curly guy.

  • Facts
    • Marv

      Lol just the best

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      Haha

  • Facts
  • Dang, tits. I didn’t expect that.

  • chicagodem79

    Andy Griffith Show, Yay or Nay?

    My granddad LOVED that show, he would watch it every day. Didn’t really get it as a kid, and I really haven’t seen many episodes since.

    • Facts

      Barney Fife

    • Watched it with my Grandma as a kid. It was fine.

    • Marv

      Haaaaaated it. It was another show like “Oh god, just hurry up and be over so something good can come on”

      • chicagodem79

        After the catchy theme song/intro, I usually lost interest within like 2 minutes lol.
