well, if it's winner first, then technically I'm still in it, and only will be eliminated if LA wins and we go to the second tie-breaker(which I will lose)

 

I made the finals!    :banana:

You could look at it that way.  You are in the finals and can still win if LA wins and someone other than NE loses! :cheers:

I don't think I'll ever understand why people bash Dolezal.  She was dedicated.  

 

Dedicated to what?  From what I have seen she tried to benefit personally by claiming to be a minority.  Then when she was called out on it backtracked by said she identified as a minority.  I could have missed something and if I did feel free to tell me what I missed.

#6364795 The Walking Dead - Season 9

Posted by Bill E. on 27 November 2018 - 10:20 PM

Any thoughts on the first half of the season, including this weeks episode?

I liked it.  I thought the people wearing dead masks are pretty smart.  You can blend in with a heard and never be discovered.  If you are in front you can steer them anywhere.  That was pretty badass and I bought in to the whole Dead evolving thing.  I was happy with it.

Why do we give a fock? What exactly are we getting out of this?

It is tied into Climate Change.  In 30 years the Earth will be burning up and we will all have to go there for the summer.




#6362306 Chief Justice Roberts

Posted by Bill E. on 22 November 2018 - 06:33 AM

Wow. What a dope. Some of these people are living in an alternative world. Scary that the Chief Justice could either be this partisan or this out of touch. Thanks Bush!

 

He wants to be the new Kennedy.  The most powerful man in America.

#6352905 White House revokes CNN's Jim Acosta's press credentials

Posted by Bill E. on 08 November 2018 - 04:22 AM

The guy thinks that he is the show at the press conferences.  It is a big stunt on his part to boost his ratings.   They should let him come but never let him ask a question or speak. 




#6348533 I was on the Smithsonian Channel

Posted by Bill E. on 01 November 2018 - 06:48 PM

Awesome.  Just checked and of course I don't get that channel.

Yea I am trying to figure out how to get a digital video of my part.  I can watch it on demand but Comcast online does not list the show.  If i do get one I will post it here. 




#6348517 I was on the Smithsonian Channel

Posted by Bill E. on 01 November 2018 - 06:37 PM

They did a show called Top Ten Deadliest Beasts.  They sent a team out to film me diving on my boat a year ago and they just aired it last night.   It will be on a couple more times this month at like 2am.  It is on demand on Comcast and I just watched it.  I was in a few seconds of the promo at the very beginning and my 1-2 minute part of the segment was at the end of the show since the did the Megalodon at the end.  They interviewed me and showed my boat and some drone pics of the area.




#6334506 Any One Event Fundamentally Change Your Life Trajectory?

Posted by Bill E. on 14 October 2018 - 10:29 AM

Getting out of the Army, is one answer but that was always the plan. If I'd liked the Army, I would have stuck, but we were treated poorly, I despised the Army, looked forward to getting out the entire time and re-enlistment was not an option (although I started to play with it in my head again a bit when my life went sour and I was depressed). This was like my divorce, the closing of a bad chapter in my life, the nightmare ends and all is good in the world again.

 

The real answer here is coming to China. I was 29, depressed, my fiance had broke up with me, stuck in a rut, living with my mom, substitute teaching, just going nowhere and spinning my wheels. So when I heard about teaching positions open in China, I checked it out and everything went well. I got off the plane and the light bulb turned on. All of a sudden I had a respectable job, disposable income, my self-esteme and self-confidence came back, I had a long term sexy girlfriend before the week was out. And I'm still here sixteen years later.

Very cool.  My neighbor's son was in a rut and he met a girl that had a degree and was moving to Vietnam.  He followed here there amd ended up with a teaching job.  He was back a few years ago and I could not believe the transformation.  He was a different person and all for the better.

In 1986 a girl I was going after asked if I wanted to try SCUBA diving.  Also in '99 I moved to Savannah for an IT job and met some guys that dove on the weekends for shark teeth. 




#6322208 Kavanaugh sexual misconduct in High School

Posted by Bill E. on 28 September 2018 - 10:45 AM

Probably mentioned in the last 50 pages but the one that has me going and I wish they had asked her about it was her good friend.  So a guy tries to rape you at a party that you and a friend were at.  You get out but never tell your good friend to stay away from these guys because they attacked you?  At least she could have warned her friend that they were bad news.
