That's just because you and Root picked a fight with the sheguide and couldn't go to the bar.

Watching the game was cool. The first shower in 5 days was heaven!
You heard that story wrong. I got no problem at the bar. The food sucks.


Btw: I told the judge to fuck off about that ticket. They're coming for your truck!

I may have embellished a bit for the sake of the story.

They will never take me alive!

Hoping to get up that way soon.

A bit late in the game at 11. They're only a year or 2 from hating you and it may just fuel the fire...

Probably so. I am taking him to an indoor shooting range to fire some semi- wanna be a killer weapons this weekend. We are leaving his Anshutz in the case. At home. Fuck TV.

We need that "thing" to happen real soon.

You know, the one that thins the herd.

I thought that perhaps the Twinkie factory shutting down would be it but, alas, we survived that one.

Whatever form it takes, fuckin' bring it on.

And right soon.

I wish I could say it was all intentional but, really, the fucker broke and we were busy with new career, wife in grad school and all that shit. Initially it was procrastination but then seemed like a good thing so we just stuck with it until the kid was 13 or 14.

No TV was hands down the best parenting move we made. If you have any kids - throw the fucking things out - NOW...

DVD bullshite too...
We didn't have TV until like two years ago. For some reason (aka keeping up with the Joneses) we put flat screens in three rooms after having one 1980s vintage big ass TV in the living room un-used for over ten years.

Last month we just killed our cable again. With exception of not having access to the games I want to watch, we won't miss it.

The only downside is library maintenance. We have to donate/sell/whatever close to 800 books and re-stock because everything's been read and they're getting older so we need a new inventory.

The latest issue (March 2014) of NatGeo magazine has a big article about bluefin and how much trouble they might be in.

Apparently the society thought about the possible hypocrisy of the TV show when they decided to make it. Some interesting commentary here: http://deepseanews.com/2012/04/eating-w ... -going-on/

I understand some of the NatGeo's arguments, but I think in the end, I'm with you. It's hard to reconcile this. I'd think they could make a show that highlighted a lot of the excitement of tuna but focused on the scientists who tag and track them. But I don't watch
much TV so I'm not a particular good judge of what makes compelling viewing.
