    No more "Boy" in Scouts

    Read today that the LDS church is ending its affiliation with boy scouts after December 31, 2019. https://www.mormonnewsroom.org/article/new-program-children-youth?cid=HP_TU-8-5-2018_dPAD_fMNWS_xLIDyL1-B_

    Cry Closet - University of Utah

    I thought I read somewhere that this was actually an art project / piece put up by a student or something. makes me shake my head and feel old.
  6. I am just about finished reading "Red Notice" by Bill Browder and I highly recommend it. It is about his investments in Russia and all of the corruption that exists there, etc. Very well written. https://www.nytimes.com/2015/03/22/books/review/bill-browders-red-notice.html
  7. Option B sounds like a Harvey Weinstein move and a rapist mentality

    Fountain Pens

    A few years ago I stared using the uni ball signo dx 0.38 - I always carry one in blue and one in black with me. I work in IT, but still write a lot of notes by hand. I'm starting to try and get away from that in some meetings by writing on the screen of my MS Surface Book in One Note, but I still prefer paper. I tried a live-scribe pen to have it transfer writing to me phone, but that pen was uncomfortable to use - way too big.

    Good tip. I never listen to anything less than 2x speed these days. After you get used to listening faster 1x sounds soooooo slooooooow. Depending on the reader I adjust the speed faster - also depends on if you are doing something else at the same time, etc.

    Alabama is such a weird state

    That is crazy - so much room for corruption that you know is happening.

    #3 New Mexico #6 Wyoming

    Well if Wyoming is not going to win it all then it might as well be the Lobos. Good Luck the rest of the way.

    #3 New Mexico #6 Wyoming

    Wyoming needs some more effort rebounding. gave up 10 offensive rebounds, and UNM got 10 more shots because of it.

    #2 BSU vs #7 USU

    looked like that to me too.
  14. I've seen several stores recently announce they would restrict sales of firearms and or ammunition to those who are under 21. Legally someone who is 18 or 19 is allowed to purchase said items. I am curious if that would pass any type of legal challenge if someone sues a company for discrimination based on age? Can a store just decide they don't want to sell a specific product to a certain group of people? Age is a protected class in employment, but only over age 40 if I recall. I'm curious what legal opinions may be out there on this type of thing.

    SC Featured: Black 14

    Malik Hamilton (son of Black 14 player Mel Hamilton) joined the LDS church. He went to school at Utah State not BYU. His dad came and spoke at the LDS institute in Laramie. He talked about opening doors so his son could join the church and have the priesthood, etc.
