  1. The "gay agenda". Why do people care so +++++ing much about the sexual orientation of others? They're not forcing other people to be gay.
  2. New Faux news 90 million sexual harassment

    This is a good read on the Activision Blizzard settlement. https://www.dandodiary.com/2014/12/articles/shareholders-derivative-litigation/two-recent-massive-merger-objection-lawsuit-settlements-include-significant-do-insurer-contributions/ It essentially had to do with two of its officers acquiring what amounted to be somewhere around 25% of the active shares in the company. The shareholders filed suit because they believed it should have been put to a vote. The amount was paid by insurers as well as Activision Blizzard themselves. Given that their net income in 2015 was nearly $1B, and the company is closing in on a $20B valuation, I think they ended up okay.
  3. Keto

    So, as an update. I'm down 22lbs since I started seven weeks ago. I was at a conference last week, so I did lazy keto, and I'm going to be doing the same thing this week for Thanksgiving. Then it's back to normal on the 28th... I'm giving myself the 27th as a cheat day because it's my birthday.
  4. Congrats to Armani Rodgers for winning OPOW!

    I mean, that's great and all, but the conference doesn't have to choose the same person as whoever chose national player of the week. You can legitimately make a case for both of them for OPOY, so I don't think it's nearly the big deal that y'all are making it out to be.
  5. Yep. Unfortunately for UNLV, I think that even if they beat Nevada, they're going to be on the bottom of the 6-6 group due to their loss to Howard. So I'm hoping that the rest of the 5-6 teams lose this weekend so they can get in. I only mentioned Florida State in the 4-6 group because I think they're the only ones that realistically have a chance of making it to 6-6... I mean, New Mexico has a chance, but I'd put their odds at very low at this juncture.
  6. Audiobooks

    Big thumbs up for reading the Wheel of Time. Also... even partial mastery of six languages is beyond impressive. I might have to look into that.
  7. Audiobooks

    I actually finished the first book while I was driving home from work today. I'm looking forward to starting the next one tomorrow.... Oathbringer by Brandon Sanderson.
  8. Congrats to Armani Rodgers for winning OPOW!

    You have to consider Penny's contributions in on offense and on special teams separately. Penny ran for 222 yards and two TDs, while Rodgers ran for 193 and a TD, threw for 211 and a TD, and led UNLV on their game winning drive. I think they matched up pretty evenly on offense all things considered. If this was simply the Mountain West Player of the Week, then it goes to Penny without a second thought, but it isn't.
  9. Death of a partner

    Shit man... I don't know what to say except that I'm sorry. I can't even imagine what you're going through right now.
  10. Audiobooks

    Between family, work, and school, I have found that I have less and less time these days to sit down and read a book. So I decided to get an Audible subscription and try out audiobooks to listen to during my commute, since it's 30-40 minutes now as compared to 10 at my last job. I'm really enjoying it so far, and I've only gotten through 3/4 of one book in the last few weeks since I started. It made air travel go really quickly last week as well. I strongly recommend it for people who can't sit down and read a book for an extended period of time, but who spend a lot of time in their cars, public transportation, or flying.
  11. Rank Em Football week 11

    You always have to account for idiocy from MWC officiating, especially when Wyoming was getting away with those holds the entire game.
  12. Rank Em Football week 11

    It scares me that Tedford thinks a 13 point lead is insurmountable. Ugh.
  13. Right now, there are 70 Bowl Eligible teams, which gives us 8 slots left. There are 18 teams with 5 wins already, and eight of those teams go head to head, which means we're at a minimum of 74/78 full. Then you have Florida State who is sitting at 4-6 with two games left to play after their game with ULM was rescheduled for championship week. That leaves us with a likely 11 teams battling it out for four open slots.
