Morden, I've watched probably 12-15 hours since Thursday.  With this situation, football has been my release mechanism.

Besides my alma mater, the last football game I've attended was a University of Oklahoma game back in the late 80's/early 90's when Cale Gundy was at QB.  I have never attended an NFL game.  I've attended two Oklahoma City Thunder NBA games and one New York Mets MLB game, and a couple of minor league baseball games.

LMAO!  Have you really?

Can someone photoshop Bushie into this picture next to me?  


I have a bad feeling that kid in the white t shirt is about to get loved on.

It's the street one block over from me. And because the neighborhood was developed in the 1950s, the houses are pretty much the same. It's pretty quiet, most of the time.

Small towns also have the urban and suburban divisions. Common features in a small town downtown area include a town square, a county courthouse or municipal offices, a post office, an (often unused) old single screen movie theater, the remains of an old shopping district that has long since been replaced by a suburban WalMart. And then on the fringes of the town, you have single family homes, often with large yards, and, in many cases, trailer parks.

Dang that's a good looking burger. What is that, pulled pork?
 Fire-roasted double cheeseburger, $15: Angus chuck and Angus brisket topped with garlic aioli, aged cheddar and caramelized balsamic onions.

Also, regarding traffic, to quote wikipedia
Quote
The stadium is the only NFL stadium that is completely inaccessible via public transportation, including bus, light rail, or people mover systems. This is partly because for a long time, Arlington was the largest city in the United States with no mass transit system; much of the sales tax money that would normally go towards building one is being used to pay for both AT&T Stadium and Rangers Ballpark in Arlington.

What sort of cheese and bread to like with your burger?
After a quick google search, I found out that they do indeed sell burgers at AT&T Stadium, home to the Dallas Cowboys. Here is a pic of one.

1. Are men and women not permitted to study the Bible together?
2.  It's only 3 hours from OKC to Dallas. Go see a damn Cowboys game before you die of a heart attack at age 37. I bet they sell cheeseburgers at the stadium.
3. What are your thoughts on the best way to do a cheeseburger? What kind of cheese do you like? Condiments? Bread? As I've mentioned previously, I am very opposed to the super fluffy fast food style bun. I find them to be abomination.

We had to read The Communist Manifesto for a history class.

A history class? In High School?
No. It was in college. French history 1815-Present.

Bushie, have you ever eaten at Buffalo Wild Wings?
11  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Buffalo Wild Wings on: September 22, 2014, 10:28:08 am
FWIW, my favorite wings here in Memphis come from a little Vietnamese place called Pho Saigon. They're really good about making them extra crispy and oh so delicious. Sadly, like every other Vietnamese place in America, the service isn't very good. It's amazing how you can go on yelp, check out a random city's Vietnamese restaurant, and I can guarantee you that half of the comments will be something along the lines of "Their food is amazing, but the staff isn't very friendly or very quick." Probably a function of the big chains not yet consuming the market. As far as I know, there is no Olive Garden, PF Changs, or Buffalo Wild Wings of Vietnamese food. Just a bunch of weary Vietnamese refugees turned restaurateurs working their family restaurant 12 hours a day, 7 days a week, mostly in dingy parts of town.

Is it just me or did Bushie delete the post on Facebook? This is all getting very mysterious.

Yeah, I think he mentioned that the mystery family member told him to delete it.

What a strange story. At first I thought and worried it was a death in the family or a very bad medical diagnosis, but I don't know why he'd be so secretive about something like that. Hopefully it is just something silly like his cousin coming out.

Let's not be so cavalier about something as grave as a gay trying to live openly in Oklahoma. 

That's true. In some parts of Oklahoma, you have a higher life expectancy getting diagnosed with cancer than you do "the gay."
And nobody blames your cancer for enormous disasters. Being told you're responsible for Hurricane Katrina and 9/11 has to be emotionally devastating.

Just about all medical bills are surprise bills. Try calling a hospital and getting a quote for a procedure, even a routine non-emergency one that would facilitate comparison shopping. It's not happening.

Yeah, Chicago isn't really all that pricey. Having an eternal supply of land for sprawl keeps things reasonable. Metro Houston, Phoenix, Detroit, Atlanta, etc work pretty much on the same principal. Makes me wonder what the priciest inland large metro area is.

New England probably would have had the highest support for secession during the Bush years, which shows that the real issue is frustration with and alienation from the Federal Government rather than actual desire for secession.
This sort of post is why we need a Goldmine for Moderate Heroism.

Why shouldn't we consider Olive Garden an Italian restaurant? It's Americanized favorites, for sure, but it's not like you won't see Spaghetti and Meatballs at every mom and pop local Italian joint either. In fact, local places with more trained chefs tend to bastardize the food more adding twists (green chile chicken lasagna is a weird one you see a lot out here).

It's got pasta, it's got garlic, it's got tomatoes, it's got basil. It's Eye-tally-an

A Mouse running over his face awakened a Lion from sleep. Rising up angrily, he caught him and was about to kill him.

Whose face, the lion's?
The original sentence is not in standard English. According to the official rules, one shouldn't use the pronoun his until one has named the noun he is referring to. While not everybody is 100% consistent with all the language rules, most of your examples in your threads are clearly written by non-native speakers. There's no shortage of English content written by people who grew up speaking the language. I would recommend reading their work instead.

1. Sounds like pretty much every chain restaurant, except that the "Italian" ones don't do televisions.
2. You're a bad tipper. Was the service bad as well?
3. Bushie has eaten that type of food every day for 32 years.

Bushie is for gay marriage because the majority of the forum is.
This pattern of mindlessly taking cues from others applies to most of the Forum as well. I remember back when I was in the minority here, supporting marriage equality in the face of "The Dems have to nominate a Southern Blue Dog for President if they ever want to win". Quite a few forum moderate heroes would go as far as Civil Unions, but that was it.

Suburban in Jersey terms, but I would imagine most of the country would look at most of NJ and consider it urban. 

I'll use the term sub-urban. 

The exact opposite of this. Urban in Tennessee terms, but most people would look at it and say suburban. 1950s ranch houses on quarter acre lots as far as the eye can see.

Hipsters make tons of money? Since when?

Residents of Williamsburg do!

I'm not sure if you can really make a "no true hipster" argument here either, considering that like 90% of the stuff written about hipsters references Williamsburg as the archetypical "hipster neighborhood."
I am well aware that hipsters prefer to live in our nation's most expensive urban neighborhoods. My point is that they are not usually the ones earning the money to sustain their way of life.
