    How long did passion last in your marriage?

    26+ years here and same. You have to work on it, but the payoff is awesome.

    Joe Biden said what?

    No way man, he hangs with black thugs with no shirts and tufted jackets and pants halfway down their asses. He's woke dood.

    Joe Biden said what?

    Dear sweet baby jeebus, what in the hell was that? How sad for him.
  4. I'm not sure I'd go quite that far. I agree that there are globalist elites who are highly influential in the Democrat party, and I believe that they believe that more government power/control is needed. They view COVID as an unprecedented opportunity to show that, with federal handouts, unemployment assistance, etc. To that extent I believe that there are some that want to see the shutdown drag on so that we idiots can see how wonderful the government is at taking care of us. A quick recovery doesn't help with that. What I'm not sure of is how much it is a power grab vs. a true belief that most people are stupid and need smart people to take care of them. It's funny, for me being a conservatard, I attend social events with the type of people who make up the liberal elite, with alums from the extended Ivy council which includes Stanford, Chicago, etc. My wife went to U of Michigan and won't write that on her badge because it is a public school, despite being top 5-10 in most prestigious disciplines. But if you went to some obscure private school in New England, you are in the cool crowd. "Hey Jerry, this is Blake, he is Wesleyan undergrad and Tufts grad!" Seriously, this is how people get introduced at these events. These people think that all of you -- including @Observer and the other libs here -- are blithering idiots. They think that they and their kind need to take care of you. It's not malevolent or diabolical. It truly is altruistic.

    Favorite Song - Bad Company

    I played the bejeebus out of that compilation back in the day. Went Shooting Star which IMO is their quintessential song.

    Love those guys. I thought Jesse Jackson was the big push for "African American" as per Larry Elder in a video @Voltaire recently posted though. Personally what you all call yourselves doesn't matter a whole lot to me; I've gone from negro to brown to black to AA in my lifetime; it seems that "brown" is more for Latinos these days and "black" is making a comeback over AA. Whatever. How about: Vitamin D-deficient?

    Hey Michigan

    You had me until skiing; Michigan is one of the flattest states which gets snow. And my inlaws used to have a house in Boyne which is where one of the few ski "slopes" is. Maybe Houghton or something else in the Yoop which is 12 hours away? Also, saying that you like it when it is light out at 10PM would be like me saying I like when it is 115 degrees in Phoenix. It's unnatural and wrong.

    Kayleigh McEnany Appreciation Thread

    I'd guess they didn't do their homework assignment. Or maybe the dog ate it. Regardless, I'm sure the cognitive dissonance of being called out for not being objective journalists on the black messiah administration is causing some pain, it is probably best that they stay in a safe space when responsible adults are talking.

    Facts are known, I'll defer to my post to NewbieBot over the weekend: And as HT stated, it is of course typical for the data from an ongoing investigation to be relayed to the public on a daily basis.

    The far left message is that Obamagate is a complete nothingburger made up by a deranged and desperate Trump. Newbie will continue saying this in the face of facts because the MSM knows that if you say something often enough, some people will accept it as true. HTH

    Give me something in Netflix to kill 2 hours

    Wife and I started the Patriot the other night, we are about to finish it. Probably more like 3 hours but, it's Memorial Day and all.

    So I ruffled some feathers on facebook....

    I know. I was trying to think of a public figure who might touch off a liberal nerve, instead of a guy's hefty wife which is just getting personal. Do you think she has not positioned herself as a public figure, since she, you know, lectures us on how bad we suck?

    So I ruffled some feathers on facebook....

    I don't think it is the same to wish death on a guy's wife (and call her fat in the process) as to wish death on a political figure. You should have used Biden, or Hillary, or the fat black chick from Georgia, or hell even Greta Van Climate Change as your example, IMO.
  15. I was going to post it in Utilit99's "Happy Memorial Day" thread, but that ended up being a hack troll thread on Newbie so I didn't want to legitimize it. I also feel weird saying "Happy" with such a day, I'm not sure what adjective to use. Thank you to all of our fallen veterans. Read this to your children and explain the significance of the day. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/In_Flanders_Fields In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields.

    Tiger/Peyton vs Mickelson/Brady

    Tiger and Peyton beat Phil and Tom 1-up. Tom did much better on the back 9. Also I think that Peyton may have intentionally yipped a putt (and also, much longer putts had been conceded, I think they were trying to make sure it went the full 18).

    What are you drinking tonight?

    Had a bottle of "Rose our Way IPA" from Four Peaks (local AZ brewery), it was quite tasty. Very light and refreshing, and claims to only have 5 grams of carbs. It's not cheap ($12 for a six pack) but I could see keeping this stocked for the summer. https://www.totalwine.com/beer/ale/ipa-india-pale-ale-/brut-ipa/four-peaks-rose-our-way-ipa/p/232346126

    They missed Mexican drug cartels, which Obama literally weaponized with Fast and Furious.

    What's your favorite outdoors / camping accessory?

    Don't really camp but we hike all of the time. With the sun in AZ, water and a good hat are must haves. My hat is a Tilley, something like this: https://www.amazon.com/Tilley-T5MO-Organic-Cotton-Underbrim/dp/B003NTWKNK/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=tilley+hats+for+men&qid=1590358799&sr=8-1 For water I have two; a larger backpack for longer/summer hikes, and a fanny pack for shorter/not-summer, and also road runs. For the smaller fanny pack I have an Amphipod, something like this. It fits my cell phone so I can play music and/or take pics. https://www.amazon.com/Amphipod-Profile-Bottle-Waistpack-Charcoal/dp/B07NWY5Y6V/ref=sr_1_4?crid=194HVB0DUGAHW&dchild=1&keywords=amphipod+airflow+lite+waistpack&qid=1590359113&sprefix=ampipod%2Caps%2C204&sr=8-4

    How is there not a dead MLB pitcher from a come backer?

    This is a great question. When I was 13 our team played a practice game where the coaches umped; since they didn't have gear one of the coaches called balls and strikes from behind the mound. He got hit in the nose and started bleeding profusely. I had been thinking of being a doctor, but that event changed my mind. Thankfully our coach was an EMT in real life and handled it.

    Utit99's Obsession Poll

    I've worked in hi tech long enough that more often than not I can identify Korean, Japanese, and Chinese, but it is far from an exact science. Those are the big ones in tech. Vietnamese I feel like has slantier eyes, but do Laotians? Hell if I know. Also if I meet multiple people from the same Asian ethnicity and you ask me an hour later which one is which, no chance.

    Well, looks like I wasted time trying to have an intelligent discussion with NewbieBot, he just posted the same drivel. Shame on me.

    Any plans for Memorial Day weekend?

    Did the Murph workout this morning, a Memorial Day weekend tradition. This is the biggest reason I'm happy our gym was able to open up this month. https://www.crossfit.com/workout/2005/08/18#/comments No vest for me, I may train for that next year. Finished in 42:31 which was 2nd out of about 20 from our gym in our heat (they spread things out into multiple groups for social distancing, also from a practical standpoint for pull-up bars). About 4 of the younger guys wore the vest (including the one who beat me), but overall not bad for a guy turning 53 in July. ETA: I forgot to say LOOOOOK AAATTT MMMEEEEE$#@!$@@#$@!

    Utit99's Obsession Poll

    I know you are kidding, but it's tribal science. We are trained from birth to recognize differences within our tribe, or ethnicity. Other tribes tend to blend together because we aren't exposed to them. I can recognize the difference between Korean and Japanese and Chinese and Vietnamese... but within those cultures, they tend to look very similar to me.
