This article led me down deep Basketball Reference and YouTube rabbit holes that have, somehow, resulted in the following Hot Takes:
I don’t necessarily disagree. And I have worked, advocated, and campaigned for prison reform. I also wouldn’t be out here fighting to reinstate the inmate crews if the state did away with them.
STICK TO SPORTS analogy criticism.
Do they drink the clear water bottles with the standard lids first, then switch to the blue ones with the sport cap later in the match once fatigue starts to set in?
I spent a couple seasons working as a swamper on wildfires when I was in high school, and while everything is this article is accurate, my personal experience was that the guys who were out on the con crews loved it. While there’s always some inherent danger in fighting fires (as evidenced by the two inmates who died…
Jesus fucking Christ, Randy...don’t smell your co-workers when they come back from lunch. That’s, like, Office Etiquette 101.
The only Thanksgiving leftover that matters is the one that is all of them: Turkey Bowl. Put a healthy scoop of mashed potatoes, an equal amount of stuffing, and as much turkey as you want to add in a good sized bowl, cover in gravy, microwave for a couple minutes, then stir it all together and enjoy. I may not look…
The solution is simple: turn them up to full blast, then open the doors and windows so you’re actually cooling the planet. Easy peasy!
I haven’t heard what they plan to do with the Paradise schools yet. I suppose they’ll probably end up enrolling in Chico schools if there’s room for them? That’s a pretty far commute for little kids though. Good luck!
I get what you’re saying, and basically agree, but I don’t think Tony Gwynn is a good comparison. It’d be more like asking someone who works in comics about Michael Jordan. I never read comic books and hardly even watch comic book-based movies, but even I could give 15 seconds of platitudes about Stan Lee if asked…
Finally, some good news!
The best part is that you get “a special certificate of authenticity.” Wouldn’t want to get a shitty, knock off Trumpy Bear.
Sustained success over a long period of time + a bunch of try-hard, floor-slapping white kids + one of the most self-important, fart-sniffing coaches + obvious media and ref bias = easy to hate.
Really struggling to come to terms with the fact that someone this good and fun to watch and easy to root for is playing for Duke. Crossing my fingers that Coach K gets caught up in some scandal and fired before the tournament so I can root for them without mixed feelings.
I know we’re not supposed to question the coaching genius of Bill Belichick, but watching that gif makes you realize how easily Brady could have injured his shoulder being tackled on that play. Why in the fuck would you put your start quarterback in that position in the 4th quarter of a 17 point game, especially this…
Good thoughts to you and your friends! My sister lost her home in Paradise to the Camp Fire. The entire town is basically gone. Typically, when a fire burns through a populated area it burns up a neighborhood or a part of a town—like Redding earlier this year and Santa Rosa last fall—so you can do your shopping at a…
It’s not a bug, it’s a feature. They don’t want people who can’t afford to not have income for months being able to serve in Congress.
Just got off the phone with my sister, who lost her home in the Camp Fire. The entire town is basically gone. Typically, when a fire burns through a populated area it burns up a neighborhood or a part of a town—like Redding earlier this year and Santa Rosa last fall—so you can do your shopping at a different grocery…
To begin preparing for and transitioning into the job, hiring a staff, etc. I wouldn’t want my newly elected Congressperson to just show up the day they are to be sworn in without having done anything to prepare.
Agreed. Or pay newly elected members who relocate before they are sworn in in order to start preparing and putting together their teams. Somehow, I don’t think the $15,000 or so per month is going to have much of an impact on the federal government’s budget.
