    Geek Club NFL Draft Talk

    Is this the thread where you repeatedly school us with your unparalleled knowledge of the game and every player in it?
  2. If your son did it, he could be an aunt-eater.
  3. The world definitely needs more guys like him.

    The Last Tribe by Brad Emanuel. I've always been drawn to post apocalyptic survival stories for some reason. This one is doesn't have zombies, road warriors or smokers, but it's still pretty entertaining. The Dixons are pandemic survivors, the last known people alive in a newly destroyed post-apocalyptic United States. As the flu virus ravaged across the country, the four adult brothers and one teenage son were separated. Chaos, fear, and the coming of winter forced them to wait for the world to die before they could start to find one another. Now that winter is past, and the world is dead, they must begin their journey. Guided by their last phone call together before power and cell phones were lost, one message drives them. “Get to Hanover.” A remote northeastern hometown where they believe they’ll be safe. As the Dixons struggle to reunite, new questions arise. Should they look for survivors, and when and if they find others, where should they settle to restart humanity?

    This feels like a toss up.

    Did Your Direct Ancestors Help Kill Off the Indians?

    Yes. The Osage tribe was in the Ohio and Mississippi River Valley areas back around 700-800 BC They migrated west in the 17th century after warring with other tribes. They were well established and controlled a pretty big territory between the Red and Missouri Rivers in the early 1800's. At some point, they wound up in Kansas and later forced to move to Indian Territory (now Oklahoma) where most of their descendants now live. I was born in OK, as were my parents and grandparents.

    Did Your Direct Ancestors Help Kill Off the Indians?

    My ancestors were German, Osage and Cherokee. It is assumed that several must have participated in raping and pillaging to some degree. My great grandfather (German) married a Cherokee woman in 1898. We believe she was 12 or 13 at that time. He moved with her from Arkansas to Oklahoma where they continued share-cropping while raising 9 kids in what started as a one room shack with an out house. She died young, as did one of her daughters.

    I got canned 3 weeks ago.

    Kudos to kilroy and his resiliency. However, recruiting jobs are sorta easy to come by. The turnover rate is very high, especially those where commissions are part of the compensation package I used to work with a guy in the field who would occasionally say, “Eh. If I lose this job, I’ll get another one doing the same thing tomorrow.

    Anybody watching Jeopardy?

    I finally watched an episode with this guy. He started out in the hole, for a little back, lost his first daily double and still managed to clobber the others by over $40K going into final jeopardy How the hell is anyone gonna beat him?

    Interesting baseball stat.

    There have only been a total of 19,000 pro players since the game was introduced in the US

    Tis a shame

    Honor schmonor. Dishonesty, corruption, lying, pandering goes way back. It just wasn't in your face like today. Out of 45, at least half our past presidents have "dishonored" the office in some way.
  15. Besides my mom’s snatch. The first mammal I ever skinned and cleaned was a squirrel. I had to wash about 5 times with Lava just to get the blood, guts and fur off me. And that smell was one of the worst on earth. I don’t know how you guys do it with deer or larger game.
