Thinking if I should reblog that “Eating iPhone cookies while driving” post with a bunch of links to dead bodies of people who were killed when others were texting while driving.
Well, mulling it over, anyway.
Sure, it’s just a prank, but the dude’s whole subtle point is that he thinks cops are stupid when they pull drivers over for being terrible drivers, yeah bro grate jorb pls don’t die while eating a cookie
If they’re open back sometimes you can. The person wearing them could just have ‘em too loud too.
I think either one could be the problem… the person isn’t hostile and I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt on their intentions here, but it’s a difficult thing to address without adding an uncomfortable element to the workplace. I kind of have an idea of what to say, but I’m in that rough area of thinking it’s much less trouble to just sit here and grind it out… except it’s a playlist that’s at least 2 months old played repeatedly and half the songs on it kill me, so I am really grinding it out.
Not as bad as the time I worked in a construction trailer with a crazy lady who played, on speakers, “The Best of WAR” over and over again. There was a lot wrong with that job.
Oh right, so his first win was a week where my starting RBs got 2 and 6 points, one of them was Gio… and he won by 6
His second win, I have a RB with 7 who scored 30 the week before… a TE with 0 who scored 12 the week before… and a defense that scored 1 while my bench had a 27 point D… and he won by 10, which itself wouldn’t be a big deal if Dez didn’t turn in a turd…
The flipside is that many of the teams that aren’t playoff-bound were victims of bench-pointsitis, so I have good company tonight, it’s just that my fate is decided the latest of all.
Anyway, I’m not the Taco or the Andre of this league. Say ONE MORE WORD.
Not to denigrate Brian’s season, but anyone that lost to me twice probably shouldn’t be in the playoffs. Christ, I’m bad.
You played spoiler with the best of them, but yeah, it was definitely not your season.
When two of your first 3 picks ended up on season ending IR and the 3rd was benched for what seemed like half the season, there’s not much you can do. They were all good picks at the time too.
That’s some bullshit. Dez scores 9 points in a must-win game. I have a 27-point defense on my bench and a 5-point QB (in a snow game) on my roster. You have a 25-point Bobby Rainey and a 20-point Hakeem Nicks (who’s been a fucking LOSER all season) on your roster. I lose 4 weeks in a row, often by a handful of points, when I’m often projected to win by 40. Give me a fucking break. I got ass-fucked
Since you were just going to hateread something anyway, please consider this talented email from this talent consultant that arrived in my inbox well before I could anticipate soliciting it (translation: he’s good!):
Good evening Brian,
First, so you know, I believe that having an audience is a privilege, and not a right. As such, I rarely email unless it is something of value. I do believe this qualifies, and I hope this email finds you having a truly spectacular day!
I am very excited about this role specifically because of the company fosters a growth environment where they promote from within and offer training classes and workshops. Please let me know your thoughts regarding my message above and feel free to reach out with any questions.
In the meantime, please reply with your most updated resume and let me know when works best to discuss your potential interest or possible referrals for this opportunity.
Again, I appreciate your time and look forward to your prompt response.
All the best, Michael
A referral is the best compliment I can receive. If you enjoy working with me please do not keep me a secret. Michael Demby Talent Consultant
That’s not journalism, it’s white upper-class liberal gawking. And written like shit. The people who worked on this article had no business doing it because they clearly don’t understand anything except their own brand of “journalism”
Matt, am I gonna miss the playoffs after I lose this 4th shitshow matchup in a row?
It’s actually possible.
If you lose, you’re 8-6
the tiebreaker in this league is total points.
you sit behind Nathan, Christina, Me, Andrew and Matt in total points.
First thing that would need to happen is you to lose and Andrew to win, if he loses, you can’t fall out of first place in your division (which is an automatic playoff spot).
If Andrew wins and Nathan wins and Scott or Matt win also, it’s possible they could jump ahead of you in the standings.
Well, all of that seems like it’s going to happen, unless somehow Brandon Marshall gets more points than Romo and Bennett tomorrow night. Possible but not something I’d bet on. (We’re gonna end up tied after these afternoon games) So I think I can count on a 4th-straight loss and my playoff spot is definitely finished, the only question is who manages to grab the spots when points are tallied and tiebreakers are decided.
I had a good roster this season and worked the waiver wire well, but I got jinxed at the end. Imagine if I put in Tate last week but not this week. Imagine if the snow in Philly let up a bit in the second half for Stafford to toss a few passes to Megatron. Imagine if I didn’t over-manage and I actually let Gates sit at TE today. Bleh. First to worst.
Right now: 80 scored roster points, 79 bench points. UGH
The NYPD has ordered the city’s 77 police precincts to stop giving out any information to the media about crimes taking place in their neighborhoods, cutting off a long-standing source of information for New Yorkers.
The NYPD’s public information office, known as DCPI, typically disemminates only select major crimes such as murders, sexual assaults and grand larcenies, but often does not include lower level neighborhood crimes. Those complaints could traditionally be found at the precinct, a reliable source for information of interest for residents.
To explain: DCPI basically runs an email list with information on major criminal events that gets disseminated to any media outlet with NYPD press credentials (although, fun fact: anyone can access those emails using the NYPD’s iPhone app; just click on the “Breaking News” RSS button). But many criminal activities don’t end up on the list. These are things that can end up in police blotters, or be the types of events that by themselves may not be newsworthy but may be indicative of an ongoing trend (a rash of burglaries in your neighborhood, for example). The latter is type of info that the NYPD, all of a sudden, has decided to limit access to.
Many people are going to call this Ray Kelly’s middle finger to the press corps on his way out the door.
There is the requisite “fuck this guy” sentiment here, but to add additional context:
The DCPI department is very, very small, and is run by a commissioner’s lackey. The prior DCPI head, a long-time underling of Ray Kelly, was pretty much caught in a lie once a week.
This isn’t just about crime stats per se… it’s also about public requests for information on what should be public documents. It turns out that Ray Kelly has a different view on whether public police documents should ever be shown to the public, and they have abused exceptions for privileged situations (like “active investigations” that are actually dead or have no resources assigned now or ever) in order to keep documents confidential. This, in turn, has prevented private parties (including victims, lawyers, and reporters) from obtaining any information at all about some cases. This is the opposite of how it needs to work. The NYPD has nearly escaped all requirements for disclosure compliance over the past decade-plus… this arcane but deeply wrong matter actually ended up having a lot of influence over the mayoral election.
Why did Bloomberg let it go on so long? He was actually a politically weak mayor. He needed Ray Kelly, who was always “more popular” than he was. Ray Kelly is a tyrant, but was an important constituent to the Bloomberg administration. Bloomberg isn’t exactly a liberal when it comes to criminal justice concerns, but it was often hard to reconcile Michael Bloomberg the benefactor with Michael Bloomberg the guy who let Ray Kelly do whatever.
I mean, Ray Kelly is so bad that his son is an accused rapist jerk whose victim was ignored by the police.
I don’t believe that’ll be the long-term move for them, and if one of your primary success metrics for the next three weeks is a high draft pick, I think Wade’s fine. All downsides are upsides and all upsides are downsides.
Also, Wade Phillips is absolutely better than any coach that loses 11 in a row with a team that’s not the 2013 Jaguars
Let me tell you why Gary Kubiak was fired. Last night, in just the second half of the game, the Texans ran 44 passing plays and just 4 rushes, and their quarterbacks where Matt Schaub and Case Keenum. At one point, they ran 32 passing plays in a row, and for most/all of them didn’t even have anyone in the backfield.
For the uninitiated: it’s a lot easier to defend against passing schemes when the offense communicates quite clearly that it does not intend to run the ball at all. Their running back ran 100yds and scored three touchdowns the prior week, which would have made even the presence of an RB in the backfield a credible threat.
Our league is PPR so Tate (on my roster) was only a disappointment, not a calamity. But from a football perspective, even considering a comeback effort vs. an average team (which the Jaguars are NOT), the formation decisions alone were extreme beyond any possibility of balance or sanity. Kubiak basically self-destructed last night. Maybe he should take a year off.
The item in question that I need is high-proof vodka or grain alcohol.
FOR A RECIPE, not for jungle juice or some bullshit like that.
NY state liquor stores can’t sell it. The one time I remembered in NJ to pick it up, I could only find a liquor store that had 80-proof vodka or Bacardi 151 (nope). But it is a sellable item in NJ. You can buy it at a supermarket. And if you’re coming over to NYC on the train on a daily commute, I could use your help with it.
Dude got 1 yard against JAX last game. I wasn’t going near him
I know, but Jax is terrible against the run usually, and people saw it as a fluke
The only way this works for me is that Bill has the Texans D, they may end up with negative points (the way they’re going). It’s all about the total points. Tate already has 5, so if my differential is around +12 for the game… I can’t really complain much.

You are simply not supposed to put that much mileage on your finger joints with a scrollwheel… but guess what, shit doesn’t work all that well unless that’s the one way you navigate through vertical pagespace online!
