Re: Politics & Current Events

Stupid people will often vote against whats in their self interest. So instead of trying to sell them on it, the noble thing at this point would probably just lie to them so they vote for you and then just do whatever helps these poor shmucks out.

Re: Sports Media Thread

I haven't had ATT in Wheaton yet (only Comcast since we moved here), but my previous experience with ATT internet in the Chicago burbs is that it sucks and is way slower and more spotty than Comcast, which I have not had an issue with (other than paying way too much).

Re: Guess what an idiot with a badge did this time...

I would bet most people who make comments about people running from police deserve to get shot would also glorify movies with high school parties where the kids all run from the cops when the party gets busted. I suppose all those movies need to get changed so the cops just roll into keggers with ar...

Re: NCAA Tournament 2018

I've always envisioned it finally happening on some sort of buzzer beater or something. The fact that it's going to be like a 20 point win makes it sort of anti climactic.

Re: Sports Media Thread

To the surprise of no one, looks like sticking to sports was a factor. Also love the assertion that they could occasionally pair Goff with Holmes at night, because we can’t be having our diversity shown anywhere but nights and weekends. http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/breaking/ct-spt-wscr-scor...

Re: NSBB Recipes or How I Learned to Love the Crockpot

Chicken thighs in the crockpot are way better. The fat really makes a difference. And yes, the lower cost doesn't hurt either. I usually wait until the large pack goes on sale for 99 cents a pound and just dump it all in with some seasonings and chicken broth.

Re: General Chit-Chat thread

In CubInNY’s defense, chicken breasts are about the worst thing to put in a crockpot, so Derwood’s example was terrible. The carnitas that were mentioned are amazing though. I just killed the last of the batch I made in enchiladas and they were awesome. You're doing it wrong. Chicken pulls apart fo...

Re: General Chit-Chat thread

If you want crock pot amazingness, throw a pork shoulder in there with a bunch of other ingredients like diced tomatoes, spicy seasonings or hot sauce, onions, peppers, etc. Add chicken or beef stock. Beer works too, actually (not joking). Let that sit for 8 hours after you leave for work and come ...

Thanks again to those who gave me advice on dealing with the shin splints. Picked up some running shoes and haven't really had any issues since. The first time I used them my shins were sore for maybe five minutes when I stopped running, but even that was nothing compared to before. But since that ...
