Welp I've had this Iphone 6 for about a year and 9 months, I take good care of my electronics and this thing has never been dropped or anything but the fucker just died, won't take a charge, turn on nadda. Smart people at Sprint confirmed my thinking and asked if I have insurance on it... DOH! I've sold off my previous androids and iphones but found my moms old Iphone 4 I was supposed to fix the cracked screen on... never did that but I have a cracked screen Iphone 4 for probably 3 months... fml

You can always put your cell phone on your home owners or renters insurance.

SHOCKULAR:
Where to start?
I mean, the first thing with pea soup is the texture, okay?
I've had watery pea soup, it's AWFUL.
Uh, I've had gelatinous, thick pea soup, it's TERRIBLE.
Pea soup, much like clam chowder, needs to have that consistency first, that you can stand the spoon up in it, but the spoon soon tilts, that's the consistency you want.
Number two: Uh, pea soup on it's own can be a little bland. It wants, uh, a fairly aggressive peppering and salting.
Number three: Pea soup needs a fine dice of ham. Not bacon, not any other meat, not turkey. It needs a fine dice of ham.
Uh, number four: Uh, pea soup scorches easily. You don't wanna heat it on a high heat. You wanna heat it on medium low, just until it's warmed through.
Uh, number five: Pea soup is best made, uh, by hand, not out of a Campbell's can. And the key to pea soup, you want a ham bone, uh, for the stock you make, uh, to, to boil your peas.

Not to me it wasn't, nosireebobbysack. It was a random question. I know that because i can still see the question mark I put at the end of the sentence. Can you see it, too?

Like muting one of the channels? Not sure I see that working but admittedly I'm no George Martin sound engineer.

Whoa--now •that• I remember.
I actually don't recall why I didn't see H-B. Could've been work, but cloud cover couldve been just as likely. I've always tried to make time to see sky events, and back then it was easy to find dark skies just north of EL. The biggest deterrent has always been uncooperative weather patterns.

BIL had bought our kids a 5 or 6" diameter telescope (not super great, maybe $300) the prior Christmas. I set it up on the driveway but it was kinda useless. Comet was moving too fast to keep up with. Binoculars worked best. Probably would have been much better without local light pollution.

Walk in with a .44 on your hip. Announce you don't want to see any funny business.

Offer all the other players all you can eat ganja gummie bears.



Profit.

This might sound weird but my car just got hit by a dog. Big fucker too. Got away from the woman that was walking him in our sub and ran into the street as I was passing by. Hit the left rear quarter, hard...very loud thud.

Stopped the car and got out thinking it must be really fucked up or dead. Surprisingly it had already got up and was back on the sidewalk with the owner like nothing happened. I apologized. She was cool. Said it was her fault for letting him get away. Dog looked fine and was very friendly. Not sure what breed but looked like some type of husky.

Got home to find a little hair on the rear wheel and around the opening.

In 25 years or so, you're going to look back on this time and wonder if you have any kids you've never met. Happens to a lot of us.

25 years? I started thinking about it when I got married. Fortunately never got any surprises from the past. Child support is murder

Don't scare me like that

Funny story, kind of related.. long story short, my buddy (UM fan) went to the 2015 Blake O'neal game in AA with me. Super pissed off after the game. Couple months later, a girl he banged one time sends him a text and says he needs to take a DNA test. Finds out he got her pregnant the one time they fucked..kid was born at halftime of the game, October 17, 2015. Unreal. UM losing turned out to be small potatoes. Needless to say i've been pretty careful since then minus a few times of course

An alternative to cremation?

Search and rescue rangers who arrived later did find the victim’s body in the pool, along with his wallet, and flip flops. But, a lightning storm stopped the recovery efforts. The next day, workers could not find any remains. Veress says the water was churning, and acidic.

He remarked, “In a very short order, there was a significant amount of dissolving
