Re: Work Jerks

I work from home answering technical questions for our customers through a call line. I absolutely love having my basement office where I get to control the thermostat, put whatever I want on TV, play with my kids toys (miniature hockey, basketball, etc). And on Monday and Friday the wife and kids ...

Re: Guess what an idiot with a gun did this time

We have reached the point where we have multiple mass shooting survivors now. There's a guy that was at the Las Vegas shooting and the bar shooting this week. I guess there was a group of people from the Las Vegas shooting that would meet up at that bar, and at least one of the dead had also been a...

Re: Politics & Current Events

I voted early on Saturday and it took me 2 hours total. We had lines out the door in Humboldt Park, and the staff there all said it had been like that all day that day and the day before, which of course was Friday.

Super encouraging and I didn't mind the wait at all.

I have to wonder if this is fake news. I can't believe that Harper and Boras are going to make a choice without hearing all of the offers. Harper said he wants to get a record contract, so it's hard to believe he may be leaving $50 million on the table because he's friends with KB. It horsefeatheri...

Re: [Brainstorm] HR Derby Changes/Updates

Okay - I've mapped some stuff out and here's the problem with teams by position instead of tiers. Unless you want to have a team different than everyone else, you wind up with a team full of "A" players. Not saying that they'd all stay to form from 2018, but you never know. Thoughts? Mayb...

Re: Better Call Saul (Again)

I will say I'm kinda surprised we didn't get any more Gene at the end of the season. I think a lot of that is that these are only 10 episode seasons, and there's only so much they can do with the Gene stuff. Like, how many different ways can you show that he's now a depressed food court schlub? The...

Re: The way too early, but I'm bored, Off-season Options Thread

I'm tired of this constant complaint at the end of every Cubs season. A certain segment of the audience always claims the thing the Cubs need is fewer all or nothing hitters and more contact guys. Does this player even exist anymore? Players are striking out at record levels. And the Cubs had Zobri...

Re: TV thread

Man, Sharp Objects was really good. Big Little Lies director killed it this time, and it was perfectly cast.

It was also extremely difficult to watch at times due to subject matter

Edited to add: I think the miniseries format would have been a much better vehicle for Gone Girl, which kinda stunk
