    Good news

    You don't read the links? "Meal plans" have been around since my days, so I imagine their still useful to some folks? Especially those in dorms without kitchens. Of course, if you go for something with a kitchen to offset the food costs, the price goes up for the "Housing" part of the equation:
  2. But your games don't have unicorns or fairy dust, I bet! Probably just mech warriors battling out for supremacy!
  3. I was approaching the midway point of a 50 mile ride, and felt something hit my right bicep. I looked down and it was either bird poop or a splattered bug. In either case, I got the brilliant idea to just drift to the side of the trail - still riding at speed - and pull a leaf off a tree/bush to use to wipe my arm clean. I reached out and grabbed a nearby leaf, used it to wipe away the goop on my arm, and continued on my way amazed at my quick thinking and a job well done. ... The next day began TWO weeks of the WORST case of POISON IVY I have ever had. Huge blisters on my right arm that immobilized me on the couch for days. Only a strong prescription of steroids or some such drug was able to finally beat back the beast. In the top 10 most awful and depressing times of my life so far.
  4. FINALLY!!!! A real person having a birthday!!!! Happy 50th!!! Think of your fifties as the start of a grand new chapter in life!
  5. So, greater than folks investment in the ENTIRE multi-year GoT TV show, but not greater than, say, BBT or even a single season of Jeopardy?
  6. Another benefit is you might become one of the "better looking" folks - relatively - if you get to Alabama.

    I still can't wrap my head around this: In the weeks before graduating from Morehouse on Sunday, 22-year-old finance major Aaron Mitchom drew up a spreadsheet to calculate how long it would take him to pay back his $200,000 in student loans — 25 years at half his monthly salary, per his calculations. According to the Morehouse, TOTAL tuition is ($14k/semester * 2 semesters ) * 4yrs = $112k. Add in $3,755/sem for housing ($30k/4yrs), $3k/sem for unlimited food ($24k/4 yrs), and there is another $36,000 to cover fees and books and or maybe one more year? $40k/yr if going for five years. Amazing.
  8. BTW, what's the average amount of hours of gameplay you "expect" or "require" from one of your games?
  9. Pretty much. Look at the daily discussion here of movies, tv, and especially TV sports. It's pretty impressive for sure. I've read the GoT books, and watched all but this final season, so I've got probably a hundred hours of reading invested and a similar amount for the shows (probably 70hrs), but I guess that's a piddling compared to a SINGLE season of a major sport? Baseball, at 100+ games and 2-3hrs per is well over 300 hrs. Hockey or basketball have tons of games and therefore tons of time to watch. Football, at ~20 games a season for one team plus playoffs and Superbowl would tip the scales at 60+ hours, and similarly college FB would be pretty significant (40-50 hrs?). Big Bang Theory had 144 hours of viewing potential - crushing GoT by nearly 100%! Amazing, eh.
  10. See, you were smart enough to know you NEEDED to live in Texas to get the proper relative respect. Now, if you move to Alabama, your relative greatness will SKYROCKET!!!!!
  11. Do they? What makes you think that?
  12. I missed your post after the Super Bowl Maybe I need to go back and see if you complained about that too?

  15. I can't think of a single rational reason for killing a bear, let alone bears. I get they (and wildlife) are destructive, but if you've reached 2019 and are just now realizing that they are, you might want to try some less awful options to protect your stuff? For BuffJim's brother, maybe a bear proof bee hive enclosure of some sort? Think about squirrels - the bane of bird feeders everywhere. Some folks have a grand old time designing squirrel-proof feeders. It can be fun and challenging and no squirrels (or bears) need to die.
  16. Does it freeze well? I can usually eat the same thing three days in a row without being annoyed, so if you protion it out into a dinner, and two lunches, that might work. Freeze the rest?
  17. Yeah - just stirring the pot
  18. Yeah - I like them both. @ZFTJulizh and @zwujizz didn't strike me as "real", and @Zealot and @Zephyr have been here very recently. UglyBob is the only choice for U.
  19. Documented or in her head (like SW)?

  25. Probably that "fad diets" are never the answer? The easy option Dennis mentioned - "Eat food, not too much, mostly vegetables." - makes sense and works far better in the long run than a fad diet does.
