Don't know. Guess I will find out. With no pro sports in the state, I guess it's a big deal.

I saw an add in the paper that they have a shortage of bartenders for the luxury boxes at the home games. That could be fun. Work like 8 times a year.

We got our 55" OLED LG in 2016, 3 years ago, for $1200. The new ones have HDR and 4k, but from across the room, 1080p and 4k look the same. HDR? I don't have any content nor the bandwidth to stream HDR 4k. The TV is only one maybe 2-3 hours a week, so it hasn't degraded one bit. In no way do I regret getting that TV.

The OLED phone I used to use, a Nexus 6p, didn't degrade. My laptop screen hasn't degraded either, but then I've dropped it twice and had it replaced twice. Hehe. Damage warranty FTW!

Yes my way is often covered with different kind of black marks Some are sheep, some are cow, some are donkey poo

I have a slow reacting sparrow problem around my house. They sometimes cannot escape when cars are coming. I've hit one about 50 miles/hour. Now I go about 25-30 miles/hour not to hit them, but every time I near miss one of them.

Sorry, forgot about translation. It was my attempt at a bad joke about having to skid the car to get around imagined animals that don't exist

This is my project for the weekend. And why I've learned to laugh at anyone that says "this time, I'll leave it all factory"




There's even less space than the brz to put anything. Took me 2 hours to get it laid out so everything fits

So, in the 10+ years since I last rode my dirt bike, I completely forgot how much fun it was. PA basic rider safety course range day this morning. I wound up with a Grom which I thought was hilarious, since I'm like 6 foot and 200lb (they provide bikes). It's super slow (I think it's like 125cc), but still super fun.

Need. More. Riding. Now....

It's cool how riding a bike is like riding a bike. I've had plenty of opportunity to remember that feeling.

Back in 2000 was my second time remembering it. Went trail riding with a colleague from work. We came up to a rocky dry stream little waterfall step up. He got off of his bike and walked it up. Since I was riding his bike I asked him for permission to challenge myself.

I picked my line and zip, zip, zip... up to the top. Now I'm no trials rider but at a couple spots I was at a complete standstill with my feet on the pegs. It was fun hearing my friend brag me up for the rest of the day.

I did my ride test on a Grom and kept getting in trouble for dragging the pegs
