Re: Bathroom Nightmares

what the hell kind of horsefeathers is this...there's no lock on the door and no door between the door and the toilet?! It's one sink, one urinal, and one stall.

Re: Bathroom Nightmares

We have two restrooms in my building, one upstairs in the lobby, and one downstairs by my office. For some reason, the one by my office has no door on the stall, so if you walk in and someone is popping a squat, you just see them as you walk in. It's so insanely awkward that I walk all the way upst...

How long has the NBA played the anthem before games? If they replaced it with America the Beautiful would anyone care if people were kneeling during that song?


Probably

Re: Politics & Current Events

They can't do it is absolutely true. The players are agreeing to do it. They don't have to agree. Was it collectively bargained? I would assume so, they are contractually obligated to do it or else are fined If the NFL Owners want to collectively bargain this rule into the next CBA, they can try, b...

Apparently, the NFL should not ask Derwood his opinion. I'm not saying any league should force their players to do this; that's a dumb thing to do. But to say that the NFL can't do it clearly isn't true They can't do it is absolutely true. The players are agreeing to do it. They don't have to agree...

Today the NFL talked it over with their lawyers, and yes it is quite against the law to compel their workers to stand for the national anthem.

Re: soccer soccer soccer

The more I read about this Crew story, the scummier the owner comes off. He never asked for public funds, he purposely got a clause in the sales contract in 2013 giving him the ability to move to Austin, and as of today, he's refusing refunds to fans who bought 2018 season tickets

Columbus is pissed about this (predictably), especially as an original member of MLS. I haven't followed the team too closely, and don't remember much press about ownership asking for a new stadium, especially a "downtown" venue (besides, Mapfre Stadium is within spitting distance of downt...

The downside of the current Vizio's is that they have no tuners, so if you ever plan to go OTA for your local channels, you're SOL It's more hassle, but external tuners exist.

Re: Technology Chit-Chat

My personal preference would be the exact order you listed those TV's (Samsung first, Vizio last)

Soundbar doesn't need to be the same brand (I have a Polk soundbar and a Samsung TV)
