i hate it but i'm uncontrollably drawn to it
Much love to Mr. BC and his fan-fucking-tastic birthday party.

I'm slightly drunk............
Happy birthday, Brent. I'm in Cincinnati, still sobering up. We were all beyond thunderdome last night. And screw you, firefox, thunderdome is spelled right.
Birthday photos are up...http://s68.photobucket.com/albums/i29/brentc25/login: BrentC25guest password: Natty Sci
Since no one else is posting anything, here is the ign breakdown of the upcoming X-Men sagas Endangered Species and Messiah Complex.
Brent - those pics are awesome and I have to say the one with the camera on the ground was pretty good actually.
Anybody want to go to Rome to learn how to kill someone gladiator style? Sounds like a great vacation to me.http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/19231650/?GT1=10129
cracked.com's top 11 movie basketball players of all timehttp://www.cracked.com/index.php?na...39&pageid=1
That list is bullshit.Saleh as the #3? It's pretty damn clear that Saleh's brother Halawi was a much better ball player, and even still that was against some shit competition. Assuming you throw out real people (e.g. The Goat, Jimmy Chitwood) and don't count the monstars from Space Jame then you might have an interesting discussion.Ok, you are college coach. What high school senior would you rather take:Jesus (Ray Allen) from He's Got GameButch McRae (Penny Hardaway) from Blue ChipsNeon (Shaq) from Blue ChipsJamal Wallace (Rob Brown, Amherts College Wide Receiver) from Finding Forrester
Phil - What is funny is I was thinking that exact same thing about Saleh and his brother in law.
Woodford Reserve announces new bourbon.http://www.courier-journal.com/apps...SINESS/70625022It must be better than the 4 grain.
Funny thing though, is it is being finished in chardonny barrels and not french oak barrels, so it is still bourbon?
Addictive little gamehttp://www.chevyautobot.com
I won't be making it to trivia tonight, sorry.
Wes, that depends on if chardonnay is aged in charred white oak (not French oak). I would assume it's not, so this whiskey would not be a bourbon. It will be interesting to see if they market it as a bourbon.
As long as it tastes good and not like rye I will drink it.
90 bucks a bottle is even a little steep for someone who buys a lot of bourbon.
My baseball team is looking for a left-handed pitcher ... league is for ages 25+. Anyone?
I was flipping through channels, and just happened to stop on WWE Raw, and apparently Chris Benoit and his whole family were found dead.http://tv.ign.com/articles/799/799288p1.html
Jerome, I'm a 24 year old left handed pitcher
first rod beck then chris benoit. This is a sad week. My tarc bus got in a wreck on the way home from work today. That was kind of cool.
What did you hit. Stephanie McVince's Daughter was just on, and it was really painful to watch.
so i'm flipping thru wwe raw (sucks that benoit's dead by the way) and nbc, and i'm loving this new show age of love, with the 20 and 40 year olds, it's fucking hilarious on the unintentional comedy scale. they didn't tell the guy it was going to be 20 and 40 year olds, so they bring the 40 year olds out first and didn't tell him there were young bitches, and he kept hoping to see young girls, and they kept parading out old cougars, and his face was hilarous. and on a side note, these 40 year old cougars are for the most part pretty hot, they didn't fuck around finding the hottest girls in LA.
so vince mcmahon is on now paying his tributes, so apparently he's not dead. he just said the storyline was supposed to be the demise of his character, so i guess benoit kinda fucked up that storyline
kobayashi goes down:http://msn.foxsports.com/other/stor...960638?MSNHPHMA
so they're showing some of benoit's greatest matches, but half of the ones they're showing he lost
Wes, do you still want to see Live Free or Die Hard on Wednesday?
Of course I still want to see that, but probably not Wednesday.Damn, so they are saying a double murder suicide. Fucking sucks.
This is a cool website with a built in World Clock and death tool rates, and etc. One cool thing, is right now the clock is wrong too.http://www.peterussell.com/Odds/WorldClock.php
Jay, It's time to start planning your Halloween costume.http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x1...%20transformers
This whole Chris Benoit thing is so bizarre.
Marc, that clock is right if you are in Central time like me.
Thanks Brock, but I was talking about the DATE.
My bike is good to go!
maybe you will ride waverly now that you got your bike back.
Well I still have to pick it up and I can't do that today.
This is the Kroger where I shophttp://www.state-journal.com/news/article/2169701This has been pretty big news around frankfort.

Adrian - extreme roller coasters.http://cityguides.msn.com/citylife/...umentid=5035683
The superman coaster looks intense. I don't know how i would feel about the backwards 300 foot drop.
My question is did he break out the big wood or what?http://www.poconorecord.com/apps/pb.../NEWS/706260335
I think I am buying a Gary Fischer on Saturday. I also believe Chris is off work Saturday. Waverly anybody? Also, I'm umpiring an 8 year old machine pitch tournament, Valley Sports people are dumb.Lastly, on the subject of dumb, B-Mac emailed me to borrow my truck next Thursday. I told him I'm off work I don't know what my plans are so I can't guarantee anything. He says I'll have it back to you early. Is he that dumb that he thinks I'll let him drive my truck. Who here would let b-mac drive their car? Fuck, that kid has managed to break my recliner. That thing is like driving 10 of his Miatas.
Decent article ripping the NCAA and their business attitude regarding their televised marketing strategieshttp://www.courier-journal.com/apps...ORTS04/70626061
Adrian, I heard someone just did a Peter Pan out of one Humana's window...any truth?
If I was this kid, I would tear my mom a new one when I got olderhttp://blogs.usatoday.com/ondeadlin...aby-girl-n.html
Some truth in that....Parking structure on 1st and Main across the street...saw it out my window. He's alive apparently.
hum, i haven't heard anything yet about douchebag-mcgee jumping. I am curious though.
CJ article of jumper/fallerhttp://www.courier-journal.com/apps...ZONE07/70627011
That sucks. I didn't hear any sirens this morning allthough i am on 5th and market.
Let me tell you what sucks, Scheller's store hours.10-7, like that can really accomadate a working man. Fuck you Schellers.
It could be worse, Bike Sport is only open like 9-6.Marc, when do you have class? I'd posssibly be up for seeing Die Hard if it were an afternoon time or some other matinee time since I'm off the rest of the day and had a decent call night.
Rumor on the CJ forums is that the dude that jumped has a girlfriend that works at Human. He called her up and told her to look out the window and jumped.And people think I'm melodramatic.
The gf rumor seems to be spreading pretty quickly. I've heard it from even more people now.I've never bought into the whole "I'm going to kill myself to get back at a girl" angle. I can see someone being dumb enough to think "I can't live without her", but the "I'll show you - I'm gonna die and you'll regret breaking up with me!" isn't very effective. Wouldn't the goal of making someone regret breaking up with you be that they want to get back together with you? So go join a gym or get your GED or whatever the hell reason you think she didn't like you. And then concoct elaborate scenarios where you accidentally run into her and she'll think "oh wow, i made a huge mistake!" and rip her shirt of and give you a hand job.But the whole suicide thing, even if you are successful in making her regret it, you don't get to reap your benefits. It's just not a well thought out plan.
I agree not a well thought out plan. Someone should have told that to a guy we knew growing up who put a hole in his head with a gun over a girl. Idiot.
So you haven't received your bike back yet?Joe can you send a link to the bike you are buying?
I am going to get my bike back today. I have my bike rack on my car and will be stopping by Scheller's enroute to my house.
My brain is full.
... of spermI kill my self sometimes.
DeAndre Liggins committed to UK today. Mighty nice.
Yeah, do that... kill yourself.
This is pretty funny.http://www.break.com/index/lowes-tr...th-hooker2.html
Damn Brock, that wasn't cool.
http://www.fisherbikes.com/bikes/fu...amp;bike=MarlinI think this is the one he decided on. It's the same model I have, and it has taken all the abuse I've thrown at it so far. It's even midnight blue bitches.
On the weblog of the dude that jumped he said he was bipolar. Now there's a shock.
man, his last few posts on his weblog are pretty nutso. I do have a little bit of morals, so I'll leave it up to the reader to hunt out this guy's stuff.
I was just physically restrained from fucking up some dad at the ballpark over an 8 year old machine pitch game. I think I could have taken him. games are 6 innings long. visitors were winning 22-3 in the bottom of the 6th. you bat till 3 outs or made or all teh players in your lineup bat once. 13 batters are in the lineup so if all 13 score they still lose by 6. I pull both coaches and say call the game or let them play it out. Game is over either way I'm just doing a nice gesture. They both say let em play. I call a kid out on a caught foul tip for strike 3 that the fans said hit the dirt. everytime after that some jackass points out each incident the ball touches the dirt. I call time walk to the fence and say I didn't even have to let them bat I'm being generous so shut it. It was a 22 year old guy I umpire with whose brother was playing talking shit. bang bang play at first ends the game and we walk off the field and are met at the gate by two dads. First one says give the calls to the kids losing by 17. I say I make that same call in a tie game. Then I explain I didn't even have to let them bat. other dad gets in my face saying where in the rule book is that. we are almost nose to nose, he was short I was looking down at him pointing, explaining very sternly the rule saying they were mathmatically fucked and that he coached a team and should know the fucking rules. His son the umpire has him horsecollared by the shirt telling him to shutup. a mom yells did you explain that to the kids they are only 8. I yell that is not my fucking job who....didn't finish the ore. a 3rd dad is pushing me away saying parents don't know the rules and are ignorant just walk away you did a good job and made a nice gesture letting them bat. I yell out as I'm walking away because jackass is still yelling at me "I do a nice gesture and this is the shit I take. Fuck this I'm done." Funny thing, I've umpired the entire tourney and there are games tomorrow that I already told the league I couldn't do, but the coaches all assume I'm doing them. The coaches are pissed at the parents because they think a parent made me quit and they said before the game I'm one of the best they've seen all year. I just keep saying fuck it I'm done. I'm sick of this shit. So I think my season is over at St. Matthews and I left in style.
Damn I look good. Luckily that isn't the game I umped with my fly down.
Sports Guy draft drinking gamehttp://ballhype.com/story/the_bill_..._drinking_game/
At least he didn't threaten to shoot me:http://www.startribune.com/467/story/1269301.html
Can anyone tell I'm a little bitter? If it doesn't rain anyone want to go to thirsty thursday at the bat's game or go drink somewhere else if it does rain?
Philco - I am too busy to seek out the information, can you bend your morals slightly to entertain me when I do get a few seconds of freedom.
Joe, I wish I had half as much style as you.
Joe - If I were you I would show up and before the game starts explain to both sidelines that you are giving everyone a warning before the game starts and then just start tossing people.
Oh and I forgot, NBA Draft is tonight so obviously I am stoked.Bring on the comedy.
For those of you planning on going to the Bats game tonight. The 2nd promotion is the "hairiest back in Louisville" contest. Enjoy
Marc, this guy will probably watch Die Hard with you.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zLF__bXJ0lI
My buddy Mike just pointed out that one of our maintenance guys looks just like Scruffy from Futurama.
Transformers is being shown in "digital" at Tinseltown July 3. They have a 10:40 show for anyone interested.
Xota, you should see my new guitar. It is nice and the amp is fairly large. The amp is 100 watts with two 12" subs with a foot pedal. I think next month i might look for an accoustic electric. Probably either Washburn, Ovation or Takamine. I haven't really decided on it yet.

I got a phone call today at work, somehow the coach got my phone number and called and apologized for his parent's behavior and said he didn't want me to quit because I am the best ump he has seen up there and that he was sending an email to every parent reprimanding their behavior because it is unacceptable. I'm awesome.
anyone want to do Genny's or something like that tonight. It gonna rain so Chris and I are skipping the Bat's game.
Normally, I would be up for Genny's, however, tonight is the NBA Draft and I have left over Wick's sausage pizza.
Joe, you are awesome. I would do what I said earlier, before the game give both sidelines a warning and then just start tossing people.
I would do that if I had any more games, but I don't
I could be talked into Genny's. Give me a call if you guys go.
Mmmmm... Genny's... that's almost worth the 3 hour drive. Some pickle fritters with PBR...

Joe, you're my hero. That's why I want to be...wait for it...Just Like Joe.
Unlike last year, I will just post the NBA Draft Analysis link, instead of all the funnies.http://msn.foxsports.com/nba/story/...967202?MSNHPHMAThe best moment of last night, nope not the impovershed families hitting the lottery, was when Spike Lee was naming all the great moves that Isaiah has made to get the Knicks back being competitive and David Lee was on the big screen in attendance and he forgot David Lee....classic look on Lee's face.
Okay I couldn't resist, mainly for the fact that Schrager agrees with me about Marco Belinelli which is, the dude can play but his chick is smoking hot.DIME'S TAKE: We're not gonna lie, we've never see him play. But we will say this: we met his girl at the pre-draft party and she's a lottery pick herself. In all seriousness though, we've heard rave reviews about Belinelli's game and it sounds like he will be great in the Warriors' up and down system.SCHRAGER ON THE SCENE: Anyone who was sent that YouTube clip of Belinelli doing that 360 dunk this week knows that he's a special player. He's been an integral part of that Italian national team for quite some time now — and will be a fine NBA player. A lot of obvious comparisons to Manu Ginoboli, but from what I gather, the "taller Vinny Del Negro" description may be a bit more appropriate. The New York crowd seems enamored with his girlfriend. But hey, I already called dibs. So I'm not worried. Shame on ESPN for giving Fran Fraschilla and Sal Palantonio their own cameras, and not her. Just poor camera management on their part.
Furthermore, I don't know what is more sad.1) Greg Oden's tie2) Gred Oden doesn't know how to tie a tie.http://www.nba.com/gallery/photos/070628_29.html
Philco - Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to find a picture of Marco Belinelli's "girlfriend" that occompanied him to the NBA Draft. Personally, I'd start with high class escort companies that service the New York area, because I doubt that a big nosed Euro League basketball player is pulling tang like that in Europe. If he was a soccer star I'd say it was plausible, but basketball players in Europe are like professional soccer players here.

B-mac, Douglas, Cuban and I were emailing each other at work today and B-Mac brought up his move to Phoenix or Florida and I told him to pack his hobo sack and his pocket full of dreams and enjoy his new life where ever it is. His response was priceless. "What is a hobo sack?" Followed by a better response "I know what a hobo sack is, I googled it." I thought that was almost as good as the 2 man luge story starring B-Mac and the old couple in front of us at a UL game.
This "Rescue Me" show on FX is pretty good.
I still have Marc's song in my head.
Phil, no smoking begins at 12 tonight...Back Door?
Will they actually enforce the smoking ban in Louisville? In Cincy, it went into effect in November 2006, no smoking for like 2 days, but they didn't enforce it, so everyone went back to smoking until they actually said they would enforce it in April 2007. So it took forever for people to actually comply.

Somebody is moving in this morning and has brought a giant ass 18 wheeler into the parking lot. I'm pretty sure the only way it could be bigger is if they had two trailers on it. The thing has gotten stuck while trying to turn around, and is now blocking every car in my complex from leaving because we only have the one street out.
Phil - so are you mailing it in today?
Well, I ride my bike to work so it was a non-issue for me. But they eventually got the thing up off the curb somehow. Now only a couple of cars are blocked into their parking spots...

Joe - what time are things starting on Wednesday?
I'm not setting a time for Wednesday. Parade is at 10:30, after that is swimming, slip and slide and car washes. I light the grill when I get hungry, open the beer when I get thirsty. Tomorrow after work, my buddies from chase are coming over and watching the animated transformers movie then we are going to stoneybrook and watching the new movie. Fuck ya. Any one interested let me know. Movie begins at my house around 7 I think. New post is way better.
Wanna talk about awkward, Laura called me to play softball for her boyfriends team. They suck, I'm awesome. Go drinking with them at Steinerts, did I mention they are hoosiers, they are pussies. We alternate rounds and they are hammered, they asked me if I knew what a jagerbomb was, took them under the table on them, I'm the only one not drooling on myself because they are pussies. Take their women because I'm awesome and coherent, Laura's boyfriend makes me stay till she shows up, they all talk about laura, ask my opinion, takes all I have to not say "good fuck, sucks a mean dick." In the end, Laura shows up, I get some other girl and her friend's number after I stole the chicks from some other guy on the team, stored the numbers in Laura's phone since I don't have a phone, actually Laura's idea. Laura told me to call her to get the number's from her tomorrow. To recap, having a degree, quasi alcohol tolerance, real job and being from louisville, aka being joe, means chicks are like shooting fish in a barrel. the waitress told me I'm too cute, tried to molest me, stole my oakley's and gave me free booze too. All in all very strange evening.
today is gonna hurt.
Joe - loved the post, so they didn't even go beyond thunderdome? The just went straight from lame to fools?
And Joe definitely save the "good fuck and sucks a mean dick" comment till you have other friends around.
And who is Laura?
Nevermind, I meant she has a name?

One of these days I'm actually going to get paid for working full-time. Is there some kind of law where you actually have to pay people when they work? I was unaware that I entered into slavery when I completed my Ph.D.
Your not getting paid right now?
I haven't been paid since March! Cincinnati owes me 3 months of salary and Vandy owes me my big fat signing bonus check. Both of which have been held up by bureaucratic tape. I wonder if I can charge interest or late payment penalties like my landlord is going to do if I don't pay my rent. I just wish I could stab someone in the face... that would make me feel better.
what pay schedule did you agree to when you started with Cincinnati? They have to pay you by that agreement by law. So if they aren't complying, call the labor board. They're pretty good about cutting through red tape and it doesn't cost you anything.or, just stab someone in the face.
I think one of the issues with UC is that they kept having issues filing my application for employment after I went off the grad student system. I don't know why that is hard, but I have a feeling it was just "hard" to type my name into a computer promptly.Thus, complaining to a labor board isn't going to solve the problem because technically I wasn't in the system until just recently.I think my best solution is to just get drunk and make angry phone calls in the middle of the night to UC's administrator.
A co-worker, his wife and I are going to watch transformers tonight. We are trying to get for the 10:25 showing. Worm are you interested?
Brock - when someone fails to pay their employees the government usually steps in and shuts them down. It is completely illegal. Get your pay or get the government involved.
Adrian - where are you watching it at?
Phil, this is way late but i guess i'll explain anyway. i keep forgetting that sarcasm doesn't come across well on the internet. yes, i would consider those people rednecks along with the hundreds of thousands of other rednecks i saw @dega. Those pictures were right on. There are some college kids, some wealthy people on vacation, but mostly guys named Cooter. Some of the classics remain:the wet t-shirt contest with two of the contestants having c-section scars.the 40 year old rednecks (complete with missing teeth and he and she mullets) having sex outside their tent across from our campsite.One of our 40 yr old, mid-life crisis alumni doing blow in his trailer.my friend daniel convincing some drunk kid that our friend Jacob was a nascar driver. this was followed with daniel asking "so what do you think of Jacob Grissom as a driver though"kid: "He's a damn queer's what I think of him." (Jacob-a cop by the way- was standing right behind him)My friend Pace yelling shit like "Hey did you hear about Dale Jarrett? He broke his leg this morning, he's not gonna race." Followed by some very concerned looks on the faces of nothing but the highest class of white trash. "hey d'y'all here that? jarrett ain't gonna race today."
Living in Louisiana must be one legendary story after another. Its always better when rednecks, gators, and fanboats are involved.
Joe's post is still making me laugh.I envision him typing with two fingers just bashing away at the keyboard while he mumbles to himself at two in the morning.
Thats how I envision Joe typing ALL the time.

Time to solidify the prominence of the Big East!Damnit, I live in SEC country now.Can I get paid for each post I make?
Philco, what is the name of the music site that gives you recommendations for similar songs, that you mentioned again last night?
Did you know that I have my own mountain?http://www.schweitzermountain.com/
Brock is correct, Pandora is the site I was talking about
HAHAHAThe first song Pandora gave me as similar to Build Me Up Buttercup by the Foundations is a Marvin Gaye song. Take that Cuban and Tiffany.
Brock - Is your mountain anythink like Brokeback Mountain?
I don't know what "anythink" is, but you'll have to take your homosexual behavior to another mountain.
Brock all the talladega stories are from when I was an undergrad in Alabama. One of my favorite LA stories happened after Katrina. My neighbor's family was staying with her and her dad was saying that he didn't want to go back to their house and mess with all the mold in the floors and walls.Me: Mold? You better watch out for gators in your house.Dad's friend: You're not from around here are you?Dad (in an accent more like Boston than Birmingham): Heh. I ain't scared of no gator. I'll grab that motha fucka by the tail and throw him out my fuckin house. Gator, heh.
That reminds me of an anecdote:Ty and I were cleaning out my dad's van before we went on our whitewater rafting trip in WVa. As we were cleaning out the back, Ty pulled out a pair of kneepads and said "We won't be needing these. The first guy who has to go down on a mountain man will just have to deal with the bruises on his knees."
yes i do have a friend that owns three alligators.
anything, my bad fag.
Transformers the animated movie at my house between 6:30 and 7. 10:55 Tranformers the movie at Stoneybrook if anyone is interested.
For the record, Transformers kicked ass!
I have to agree, wes. It was badass.
Only problem with Transformers was the seizures it made me have. For the record slip n slide is awesome and so is teh fact we were on the news on channel 11 for the parade.
Here is the unedited version of the Superbad trailer that was played before Transformers. Looks pretty funny to me.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YCcagk26siA

T-Mobile @Home's service is getting a lot of good press:http://www.nytimes.com/2007/07/05/t...and&emc=rssBasically it's a cell phone that can also use a WiFi connection. You only pay for the minutes used on cell phone towers. Plus they provide you with a wireless hotspot for your house. For people like me who use their cell phone as their home phone too, this is a pretty big deal. The savings would add up pretty damn quick.
Slip and Slide wiffleball should be an Olympic sport, because it is Awesome.
That is a pretty sweet deal with T-Mobile. Might be worth Abby and I switching to an all cell-phone based system.
If I were a home owner, I'd combine that offer with Verizon FiOS for my internet (http://www22.verizon.com/content/ConsumerFios) and some DirecTV for my television. Although the DirecTV quality at Wicks sucks balls.
I am not a big fan of Direct TV. Also, not really sure how much money it would save us on our phone bill. Abby and I pay $165 bucks a month for internet, cable and phone. I think our phone bill is like $30 of that or so. I have a work cell phone so I pay $0 for that and Abby's is reimbursed by E&Y. I guess the good thing would be we'd save about $360 a year on the phone, less the additional cost increase on my bill for the triple play discount.
I am thinking next year for 4th of July we get one of these things, and the extra insurance.http://www.inflationcreations.net/r.../funforall.html

Kyle blew up the beer bottle and glass went everywhere.
I hear the glass killed some little kid named Kenny
Wes, I think the Jousting inflation would be awesome, and insurance would definetaly be necessary

Hey Wes, I'm in the same boat as you. Work pays for the cell phone and the such. Do you have DirecTV?
Nope, no direct TV for me. I have Insight Digital cable.
Jay - when does that roll out?
Phil a buddy of mind had Direct TV so I am biased on his previous encounter which was it kept going out on him. He got pissed and switched to cable. And their customer service sucked, makes me want to know what he thinks of insight's customer service.
There is such a thing as customer service for cable? I thought it was just a dailup radio station where you get to call and listen to crappy hold music for hours.

Wes-It came out yesterday. I bought it. It is not the best writing, but it has Wolverine and Optimus Prime. How can you pass that up?
Marc-Good find. "Get off the couch, Ravage!"
Transformers was an awesome movie. The visual effects were top notch.The two best scenes:1) Megan Fox looking at the engine of the car when camera focuses on her booty.2) Prime ripping the decipticon robots head off with his heat axeTwo parts that i really didn't care for:1) Human (Sam) killing Megatron - very lame in my book2) Prime getting beat down by Megatron - Yes Megatron is a badass but so is Prime. Michael Bay gave the impression that Prime was a little bitch compared to MegaTron. If memory serves me correctly, wasn't the only reason that Prime died in the cartoon to Megatron was from an assist/interference by HotRod?I didn't expect there to be a lot of humor in the movie but it actually was pretty funny. For the record, I would like to recieve a H.J. from Megan F.
I hope everyone has seen the movie... otherwise Adrian dumped a lot major plot points on you. I just watched it last night.I had avoided reading much about it because I didn't want to spoil anything, so when I heard that Optimus Prime's voice was the same guy, I was pumped! The Linkin Park soundtrack really worked.Did anyone else just sit through the movie and go "there will have to be multiple sequels to this move... but it could stand alone.. but I really want there to be more Transformers movies.. but isn't that kind of overdone lately... shut up... there are tons of guys I want to see in a live action version of Transformers that weren't in this one, so we definitely need more Transformers movies..."The scene where they are in Hoover Dam and all the people are talking (the Def Secretary, the Agent, the Soldiers) was horrible. I couldn't tell if it was bad editing or just poor acting or a bad script, but they just jumped around so much with what they knew and were willing to accept so quickly, I had to just ignore that part. Solution... less people talking, and more monumental lectures by Prime. Every time he talks, the hair on your neck stands up.
Professional condom tester anybody?http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,288395,00.html
Brock - I agree this one can stand alone, but sequels would be much more awesome.
This is both funny and fucked up. a 12 yr old and 10 yr old kidnapped and demand ransom for a 1 yr old baby. http://apnews.myway.com/article/200.../D8Q71O4O0.html
Optimus Prime is a badass. And Megan Fox is ridiculously hot. I think one of my favorite moments was the car chase scene, when the cars drove through the dust in slow motion. That is one of the best pieces of cinematography since william lichter jumped on the table and grabbed the microphone in midair.
I concur Jay, it brought a tear to my eye.
have not seen it yet...douchebags. but its ok i just skip over the spoilers. i don't know how you guys feel about this, but i'm more of the type to let my team and fans be quietly riled up and let the opponent think this is just another game...no need to rile them up...especially if their fucking USC. Apparently my team's brilliant head coach does not feel the same way (so he better deliver). http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/20....usc/index.htmlTomorrow I have to order my student tickets for the upcoming season.

Oh my god! Transformers rocks!I can't believe fucking Optimus dies! And then Starscream becomes a nun? What was up with that. Megatron getting a sex change operation after finding out that his long lost son is Hotrod was pretty cool though. I never imagined a transformer fucking a human. But I guess it all makes sense, Hotrod was always closer to the humans than the rest of them. Anyway, Ben Affleck kicked ass in that movie.
I just had a crazy ass nightmare.So I was living in the basement of a building. It seemed like a nice enough place, but animals kept dropping into where I lived through the A/C. A couple of of puppies and then some cats. So I was putting the animals outside and letting them go, but then one puppy wouldn't leave. And he was a solid little puppy, so I decided to let him stay. My cat, played by my real cat Beebe, got along with the puppy famously and they played and ran up some steps. But then this one cat ended up down there. I tried to put it outside but it grabbed my hand and wouldn't let go. So I went to some weird warehous place down the street from my basement room to ask people if they know whose cat it was. And I had to fill out some piece of paper with a title and a message card and put it in a binder. This was the community "message board" like a normal internet message board, except is was all done in a binder.I then started getting chased by something evil. I'm not quite sure what it was, but it was after me. So I ran and ran, and Brent was helping me. So we ended up in this make building with a whole bunch of fake rooms set up. Each room was like a museum room where it looked like a kitchen, but it did nothing. We went in one room that was set up like an old lady lived there. We opened her cabinets in the kitchen to make some tea which we could make for some reason despite the microwave not working, but I didn't want any. At this point I realized I had some blood drip attached to my back and the cat was still attached to my hand. But now it was possessed by the devil. So I go to the vet for evil animals.So I'm at the vet, still with my weird IV attached to my back. They tell me the cat is fine, but I know it is evil. So I get Brent to help my shove the cat into a zilploc brand baggy (the ones with the double zips). Now, I couldn't close it because my hand was still atached. At this point the vet freaked because I put a cat in a ziplock baggy. So the vet is screaming, the cat is still being evil and I can feel the evil getting closer and closer.At this point, the vet assistant is yelling at the vet that he know he needs to end it all. The room turns into a washed out version of itself and everyone else is red. It was like a red outline done in crayon around all the objects. I'm running but the evil has grabbed my IV and is pulling it out of my back. Blood is gushing out everywhere but I'm running to the center of the room to get away from the evil. Oh, did I mention "Build me up Butter Cup" is playing? So I get to the room to what looked like a giant wood chipper that was destroying everything the evil was after, including me and steven colbert from that sunshine movie. And before I got wood chipped, I woke up sweating.I think someone slipped my subconscious some LSD at the bar.
Yep sounds like a drug induced dream to me.
Wow Phil I dont' feel so bad about my dream now, which I woke up thinking man I am fucked up.Apparently, I was living close to my mamaw and papaw's house in the southend (close to 3rd street) and there is some guy that is dressed up in a hockey mask with a machete like Jason Vorhes. The only problem is this guy is a severely over weight Mexican man with a weird mustache that doesn't wear a shirt and his mask is bright orange. Plus he doesn't walk to hack people up, he runs after them and this fucker is pretty fast for a big man and his stamina is that of a long distance runner. So at one point, I am chilling on the road and see this bright orange jason mask so I had behind a parked car, he singles out somebody and starts chasing them. I start running around and realize once he locks in on someone he doesnt' notice anyone else so I grab my kitchen butcher knife (yep, don't know where my kitchen knife came from but I found it) and as he is running around I am slashing the slasher, and then I wake up.
so how did marc do? I know he sounded good, but I didn't feel like listening to the other 10 acts. How does it work legally when a neighbors tree falls into your yard? Also, what if it causes damage? Nancy's tree is dying and part of it fell this morning into the street and I am worried that the rest of it is dead too and will fall onto my house.

If I were to make a life action transformer movie, it'd be a lot more like this video than the bullshit I've been seeing in the previews:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HVmh...ws%26sid%3D2175Oh, and Chris - just got your message.

I wonder if this is our old buddy Michael Brown:http://www.courier-journal.com/apps...NEWS01/70707010Name matches, seems to be the right age, and he lived in one of the crappier neighborhoods near Bardstown Rd...
Natural causes at 46...what century is this?
We "befriended" Michael Brown as he wandered Bardstown Rd trying to get enough money to buy a 6 pack so he'd be drunk enough not to vomit while having sex with his fat girlfriend.I'm sure some events in his life drastically decreased his life expectancy.
And by some events I mean "sex with fat chicks."

Jay, Stagger is Friday right?
It sure is. It's shaping up to be epic.
why do you say that for?

SO the new Woodford does meet the definition of bourbon, as it will only be finished in the Sonoma-Cutrer barrels.Sometimes the little touches can make all the difference. It's that close attention to little details that can have a big effect on the finish. Now you can taste the difference for yourself with the second release of the "Master's Collection" — Woodford Reserve's Sonoma-Cutrer Finish! The first and only bourbon in the world to be finished in a California chardonnay barrel, Woodford Reserve's Sonoma-Cutrer Finish is a history-making spirit, consisting of 100% copper pot-stilled Woodford Reserve bourbon matured in new, charred oak barrels and then "finished" for approximately four to five months in Sonoma-Cutrer "Les Pierre" barrels."The Scots may have pioneered wine finishes, but this is the first time a super-premium American whiskey has collaborated with a super-premium American wine brand." Woodford Reserve Master Distiller Chris Morris said. "It is the best of Kentucky married with the finest of California wine country." "When you bring together two handcrafted premium products like Woodford Reserve and Sonoma-Cutrer, it's not surprising that they bring out the best in one another," Terry Adams, Sonoma-Cutrer's Director of Winemaking said. Following the success of the first release in the Master's Collection — Four Grain, the 900 case, limited release of Woodford Reserve's Sonoma-Cutrer Finish will be available in only 18 states: California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Washington DC and Wisconsin. So if you have the chance to try Woodford Reserve's Sonoma-Cutrer Finish don't miss out. See for yourself just what a difference a few "little details" can make in the final "finish!"

What I remember:1)Marc, Tiff, Jen, Adrian, and Joe getting to my place early2)Going to Arby's and making a guy get up and move across the restaurant3)Getting to the dragon first and hitting it hard4)Having an ass load of people meet up with us5)Asking Kellee if she was pregnant, and her saying it was impossible6)I kept trying to speak Japanese7)I puked and rallied8)Joe almost getting into a fight because he accidently bumped a guy9)Tiffany pulling a Jay and throwing up all over a table10) Trying to get everyone in the cab11) Marc looking under stalls in the women's restroom12) Tiffany driving back to my place like an idiot13) Having to carry joe up the stairs14) Joe laying on my couch, and saying we needed to get him to the bathroom15) Taking Joe to the bathroom where he fell on the toilet and puked at the same time16) Adrian cleaning it up17) Marc spilling a brand new bag of Cheetoes all over my floorAfter waking up the next day:1)Tiffany was gone2)Joe had gotten a girl's number3)Adrian actually made it to Shoney's4)We saw a wild turkey on the side of the road, and Joe said "I drank a lot of you last night"5)Joe had puked on Jen's blanket, and a little got on my carpet.If anyone can fill in any more details, please do.
1) Joe trying to close his tab at the Brick Alley: Bartender: "sir, we closed your tab. your credit card is in your pocket. You signed the receipt." Joe: "I knowwwwww, but I need to close my tab." Bartender: "we closed your tab." Joe: "I knowwwww. But I need to close my tab."2) Random girls giving us their table-- and their beer.3) Crazy old dude following us from bar to bar.4) me being stalked by a crazy lesbian that wasn't with us.5) Adrian getting us 12 jager bombs, then the sober person breaking the glasses.
Oh yeah annnnnd, I'll post pictures later when I get home. For the record, there is minimal self-photography, and that Crazy Old Dude is in the middle of one picture being creepy. And there are some pictures of the girl who gave Joe her number so he can see who she is.
Joe, Kellee facilitated you getting her number. And she has yours. Kellee also kept you from getting into a fight with that guy, because she apparently knew him. Also, there is a video of Michelle going to the bathroom, and you were following right behind her. However, you cut left and went into the men's. I was a little dissapointed.
And when Joe woke up, he was covered in cheetoh dust.
And according to some of the pictures, there was a point where Seiko could barely stand. Giggidy giggidy giggidy.
How could she have been drunk? "Jay! they're leaving! quick, buy them drinks!"
Phil go to:http://www.nashbar.com/ orhttp://www.performancebike.com/index.cfm
So where are the pictures at?
mine are still on my camera. I'll post mine later.
I am happy to read that I am not the only person that still gets crazy and pukes from time to time.
Half of us did.
Funny article from the New Yorker"What I imagined the people around me were saying when I was..."http://www.newyorker.com/humor/2007...3sh_shouts_rich
Considering I havent puked from drinking since 2002 it was a good night.
A Fun, quick quiz for Natty Sci Members. Unfortunetaly, I did not fail this quiz.http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/3303893/
"Puke Free Since 07" just doesn't have the same ring to it
Yeah, half of us puked. And I'm sure some of the other people probably puked too.
I thought it was funny that tiffany planned to drive back to Lou at 1:00 and we didnt even make it to 1:00. By midnight everyone was back at Jays puking and throwing Cheetos. I guess that's what happens when someone orders 12 Jagerbombs before dark.
For the record Marc, those cheetohs are kind of stale now.
I am personally blaming the bartender at The Dragon...there was no sunrise in my Tequila Sunrise at all.
Yeah, but that wasn't the only thing you drank all night.
No, she also had that vodka with soda. Except there wasn't much soda in that either. I think she was sweet on you, Tiffany.
Stagger was pretty fun. Drinking wine straight from bottle was fun. We are such dicks. I think The Sci makes the stagger. I am not saying that it wouldn't be fun if we were not there, but we bring a different type of atmosphere to Frankfort.
Yeah, and considering we were all shit faced, and everyone else was just buzzed at most, be brought a lot of fun to the table.

Do we have to call you Dr. Green Baron now? or just Fuckface?
I'd like to see a parent try this with me. http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,289446,00.html
sorry i missed it, i was in calvert city drinking maker's with my uncle. on the brightside, if i was there, i don't think joe would've gotten out of that fight
This is the sad part from your article Joe."Children who participated in the game said the events of the game were extremely disruptive and that parents “should learn to control themselves more” at future games."
http://picasaweb.google.com/jenn.mo.../StaggerThe13thnot a lot of pictures this time around, but here's the stagger.
Joe, the girl in the camoflauge tube top with the crazy tan lines is the one who gave you her number. She's in this picture: http://picasaweb.google.com/jenn.mo...948820032459506. For the record, I have no idea what bar this was in or who took that picture.
Who is doing the 3k (1.8 mile) Run for the Hogs on August 9th, a friday? Phil, Jerome and I did it last year. Cuban is in.
When do we need to sign up by? I might try it.
The picture was taken at Serafini's Jen. I'm not sure who took it though.
count me in for the run for the hogs. It's a real easy race. I ran a shit time and still got an award.
What award? Here are the 2004 times in my age group: 30 to 34 1 Tony Stidham 34 9:28 2 Eric Rouchka 32 9:32 3 Tim Wheatley 33 9:34No fucking way, I can beat that.
Here are last years results. Now, keep in mind that first through fifth don't count for the age group awards. All five winners where in my age group so I actually finished seventh in the 25-29 range. It still got me a piggy bank.20-24 ................... Jason McCreary ............... 12:59 Joe Burket ........................ 13:0025-29 ................... Brian Hobbs ...................... 9:48 Phil Scott .......................... 12:34 30-34 ................... Jonathan White ................. 9:45 Scott Regan ..................... 10:20 Shannon Stevens ............. 10:38
and besides, a 9:34 is "only" 5:20 mile pace
I know that dude Brian Hobbs, fireman...cool guy.
Big Jay - are you going to the Franklin Co. Fair?Looks pretty stellar.http://www.franklincountyfair.info/
Went out and got NCAA football for the Xbox 360. UL is ranked #11, and it looks like they upgraded the graphics of the field. They have fixed the stadium to a horse-shoe type stadium instead of the enclosed stadium they had last year, with the Howard S. building and Johnny U. statue. Pluses...the game play is pretty fluid. Negatives..the play calling boxes are small as hell. Phil let me know what you think when you get it.
Better yet Jay, enter into the Mr. Franklin County Pageanthttp://www.franklincountyfair.info/Pageants.htm
I would win it hands down, Brent.
I'd like to go see this.http://www.courier-journal.com/apps...ENE05/707170354Plus, Transformers girl might be there.
Brent, here's a pretty solid review of some cell phones you should probably check out:http://duggmirror.com/apple/The_iPh..._face/?u=iphone
When not to call 911.http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/19795748/?GT1=10150
Phil - good find, that is the funniest thing that I have read recently.
I agree. Nice.
Dave, I hold my copy of NCAA 2008 for the 360. I sadly won't be able to do much with it until tomorrow night though.
I'm curious, what does everyone do with their versions of NCAA 2007, NCAA 2006, NCAA 2005, NCAA 1957?
I've always just kept them. I have like seven copies of NCAA floating around my condo. Fun fact: the cover of NCAA 08 has almost no real "marketing" info besides the title besides a little graphic that says "#1 Selling NCAA Football Franchise!"No shit? They are the only NCAA Football Franchise - EA owns the rights. Why in the hell did they bother putting that graphic on there. They might as well wrote "The #1 Selling Video Game Featuring Someone Associated With Boise State"
Yeah, but if you don't like the cover you can get one of UK playershttp://eacustomcovers.com/gallery/08-kentuckyor Louisville playershttp://eacustomcovers.com/gallery/08-louisvilleAnd select other teams, (Sorry Brock no Cinci)http://eacustomcovers.com/gallery/08-ncaafb?page=1
Hey, we are having the official goodbye party for Wes and B-mac this Friday. Wes isn't really going anywhere but we may never see him again and rumor has it Bmac is heading to Jacksonville but he isn't on speaking terms with anybody. Same plans as most parties...meet at Joe's early (as soon as anyone gets off work) to light up the grill and start drinking, and that's about all the planning I've done so far. We can suit up and head to 4th street, make it a guys only night and head to some nudey bars, or do the same old shit and head to Baxter or Frankfort, or just get freakin' trashed at Joe's. All ideas are welcome, priorty goes to any idea by Wes or Bmac (if anyone invites him).
Hmmm...I say suit up and go to nudey bars.
I am not going to wear any of my suits into any strip bars...period.
Okay. I was just throwing that out there. I just got Amber's picture from the stagger. Joe, there is a good picture of your underwear. "My boxers are blue!"
And for the record, I am not dying or anything like that....I'll still come out just not as much.
Oh and in case you haven't heard, you have to kick off 5 yards back in college football now. That can reallly change the game.
This is a really cool game, but why do I think something bad is going to happen.
Here is the Street Wars website.http://www.streetwars.net/
Bmac is going to Jacksonville officially, and his woman is moving down there in January. He's got training the first week of August. I don't think he's in town this weekend though, I believe he's going to Phoenix for another job interview that's already been paid for, so the plan is to go fuck that interview up so they won't offer him the job and he won't feel bad for turning them down. I'm down for suiting up, i need to get drunk, haven't really been myself lately. I do want to go to 4th street to check out that new rock bar, i heard it's pretty good music
Dog vs Bikehttp://deadspin.com/sports/look-out...20.php#c1896047
er, scroll on up on that link. My bad.
Brock, You can just call me Dr. Mclovin.
Is than an "L' or an "I"? If its an "L," then its not unusual... but if its an "I," its some weird Russian Bond villain name.
So I sent the people of streetwars.net an email about arranging a game in Louisville and this is the response."We generally choose cities based on demand for the game and based on the hotness of women in the city. If there's strong demand and lots of hot chicks (preferably of loose moral character), it's a virtual certainty that we will come.Louisville we do not have set plans for yet, but we are considering it for one of our future games.If you register for the mailing list on the Streetwars website, we'll give you a shout when we have set dates for Louisvillle.Stay Dry.Supreme CommanderShadow Government"

Oh, and I also saw Live Free or Die Hard,and if you like to see shit blow up, it's a fantastic movie. In terms of a plot and story. Well, if you went to see a Die Hard movie for the plot, you got to get your priorities in line.
I kinda liked the plot...
Thanks to Break.com for making my morning.http://www.break.com/index/grandma-...ghost-ride.html
This guy won at the internet for his comment regarding the Michael Vick dog killer indictments:http://deadspin.com/sports/ron-mexi...66.php#c1901474
Now that he's been indicted, maybe Chris has a chance.
These are some serious hardcore gamershttp://www.destructoid.com/top-game...unt-35679.phtml
Chris and i were just talking about the plans for Friday for Wes and we were trying to decide what to do:1) get drunk and stay at my house2) get drunk and go to Baxter3) get drunk and go to 4th street for Maker's and Angels rock bar4) get drunk and go to St. Matthews bars5) get drunk and go to titty bars6) get drunk and go somewhere elseeither way, unless wes' rules it out before Friday be prepared for the possibility that we might go to 4th Street for a while.
I vote for something besides Baxter. A little change might be nice, like heading to Maker's and Angel's Rock bar until we get bored with it,and then head to the St. Matthew's bars where drivers can then drink and walk back to Joe's. Is that a run on sentence? Whatever we do, I think the goal is to get drunk, but more specificly to have Wes go Beyond Thunderdome.
going to 4th street is fine with me, the question is are we suiting up or not? Does anyone really want to take the chance to puke on their suit or with me in a confined car on other people's suits?
The hj protest songhttp://www.break.com/index/the-hand...otest-song.html
I don't know about you guys, but I've got a crappy suit that wouldn't bother me if it got puked on.
I will probably have to buy this.http://dvd.ign.com/articles/805/805317p1.html
I am thinking if we go to Angels Rock Bar people don't want to wear suits.http://www.angelsrockbar-ky.com/
Pearl Jam Immortality and Bettreman just played back to back on my ipod on shuffle mode. I am psyched.
It looks like I WILL be coming in for the event Friday. I can't guarantee any particular time since I don't know when I'll be able to sneak out of work yet and its a 3 hour drive, but I'll certainly make it before midnight and last well after midnight (unlike Wes).
Brock - make sure you don't wear tennis shoes out. If so, you can't get into Maker's Mark if we go that route
Bullshit, this past new years I made it till 6 am.
If you quit half assing your drinking on New Years then you too can reach beyond thuderdome and be what legends are made of.
No half-assing my friend... its called puke-n-rally, not puke-n-make love to the toilet all night.
It's easy to puke and rally when you drink 5 beers...not so easy to do when you kill a bottle of jager, steal some kings on shot glass checkers, and top it off with some killians.
Oh in about a 5 hour period, if that.
you sissies, real men drink smirnoff ice ... right Church?
Who wants big red? Anyone ... Anyone
Does anyone know if Bmac will be there on Friday night?
I wouldn't mind puking on my work clothes ... slacks, shirt and pimp a$$ tie. I just don't want to have to buy the stuff again because work clothes cost too damn much.
Just think how much porn you could download with this bad boy.http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/1983218...15829?GT1=10150
Adrian - I guess you can get it dry cleaned.
Isn't Bmac going to be in Phoenix on another interview this weekend?
That's right, I think Douglas mentioned that.
So all of our energy will be focused on getting Wes to turn his insides out. This could get ugly...Dude, that guy is trying to punk you out.
In three days Intel is cutting the price of their processors and introducing some new ones. I have waited a long time for this. I am psyched!Anyways i just saw some smoking hot chicks walk by. Too bad I move to another building Monday. Looks like I have to ask for a HJ now.
Yeah, that is probably a bad idea....I think lots of people should go beyound thunderdome but that is just me.
Yellowledbetter just came on my ipod. This is great. As if you couldn't tell, Pearl jam is my favorite band.
I never would have guessed.
Damn, there is another smoking hot girl that just walked by. I need to get to the bottom of this.
Tell them they make you so fucking hot.
Or "you're more than pretty"
Trogdor parody-funny on multiple levelshttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pC3n-LC3Em4
That's pretty good Xota! I especially like the printed paper at the end.
It had me cracking up thoroughly
I'm getting beyond thunderdome, I haven't been in awhile, I've been kind of pussy lately and for that I apologize. I will be however fully encouraging Wes to puke and rally and puke and rally and puke again, and if there's any left, rally again. I'm down for suiting up, me and nakajima used to do it in college. Trust me, it works if you're trying to pick up the ladies. Lookin' good in a suit gets 'em all hot and bothered. I've got an old suit I can wear to puke in no problem. Count me in for getting drunk at joe's and then doing whatever, I'll be rockin' out early probably, joe, just call me tomorrow and let me know when you'll be home. The girlfriend's away tomorrow night, so I'm trying to kick it old skool

So what's the verdict? We suiting up, or what?
I am down with the shirt and tie. Not my suit though, just regular work clothes.
I fucking need a drink!!!
You need a punch to the face!
Yeah, I need to know what the consensus is because I don't have the luxury of bringing my closet with me.I got about 3 hours of sleep last night, so I'm gonna either be a DD or get Beyond Thunderdome easily.
8th grader football player, the next big thing?http://www.courier-journal.com/blog...tsfan/blog.html
If people aren't wanting to wear suits and just a shirt and tie why not slacks and a button down, tie being optional?Or we can just say dress like Bmac.
If you dress up, at least come up with a back story, Im thinking funeral.
Definately, death is natures #1 aphrodesiac....look it up.
I can hear the cries now "Damn you Roger!"
Slacks, button downs, and ties? I can do that.
Just a typical day in a Philippines prison:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hMnk7lh9M3o
Well. I already started drinking.What time is everyone coming over. I need a head count so we know how much food to grill. I'm already home, so the earlier you all get here, the quicker you all can catch up.Douglas, get your ass over here b/c I need a haircut.
Are we really fucking "suiting up?" Sure we may be doing something a little different tonight, but is that really the way we roll? Besides what are the odds we get too drunk to even leave Joe's, aka don't have enough DD's for all of our drunk asses?
Suittting up is not how Natty Sci roll's.
You fucktards better come to a consensus before I leave Nashville, or I'm just wearing the Captain Morgan costume.
No suiting up! I'm not meesing up one of my suits for you Assclowns even if it is Wes's last night out.
Yeah I agree, I am not suitting up tonight...you fucktards can do as you wish but I am not suiting up. Are we going to 4th street tonight, Bardtown or just staying at Joe's? If you guys want to go to 4th street then I will probably wear jeans, if not, I will be rolling over in shorts.
And I'm outta here suckas.
I wouldn't mind going to 4th street, I just don't think we are going to have any sober drivers. My suggestion is roll over in shorts, but bring a change of clothes.I wish Bmac was in town. Now that he is a pussy and doesn't drink, it would be nice to have a driver.
I will bring extra clothes in case we don't roll. But i will be in slacks and tie
I will bring some killians ... i love beer ... can someone get ice?
I kinda like the 4th street idea too,but if we want to go anywhere, drivers will be an issue. That is unless we stay in St. Matthews, and then walking is an option. Cabbing it back is an alternative if we have a couple of people stay sober enough to get us out.
Take city scoot, it will be like $4/person after everybody piles in and Burket can jump out of the trunk taking off with the dudes scooter.Phil, can you get off work to go cycling?
sorry brent, we are in the midst of a computer nerd emergency.do you have any days next week where you can get off work during the day?
Negative ghost rider, the pattern is full.
so, so, so, so when you all ride are you all going to be wearing matching spandex?
Phil and Ihttp://www.ncbi.ie/files/images/two_cyclists.jpg
I'm rocking slacks and a tie. And I'm not drinking tonight, so I can drive some people.
Thunderdome was successfully achieved! For those who got asked to leave the bar. And those who are sleeping on the kitchen floor.
Chris, you fucking cock munch. My arm hurts.
You know you had a good fucking time when you wake up and don't remember leaving Joe's house.
I'm glad everyone had a good time.
I'd be intrigued to hear some of the highlights. Hopefully not everyone time traveled through the evening...
Well, then maybe you should have gone with us.
For all those who said they are going to ride tomorrow, Joe and I are planning on getting to Waverly around 11:00. We will leave here around 10:30 if anyone wants to meet here. Does anyone have a bike rack that holds more than 2 bikes that can drive out there? 3 wide in the Ranger is a little snug.
My rack holds three, but I am still fucking sore....from God knows what.
Chris and Joe, here are the Jelly Beans that I so desperately desired on those hills: http://www.sportbeans.com/
Phil, did you ride Waverly today?
Phil wasn't half bad at Waverly. Adrian, we called you last night and this morning and texted you this morning. We called everyone yesterday and Phil was the only one to answer his phone. Turned out ot be just Chris, Phil and me.
Adrian, Wes, that hill at waverly is my bitch.
Anyone else make it up it?
As Joe mentioned, it was just the three of us. You know what's gay - I was so out of it that I left my little bag's zipper unzipped after I grabbed my keys. This resulted in losing my bike tool. That thing cost like $18 and now some hick is probably using the 1/8" alan wrench as a tooth pick. Damn it.
Oh, in addition to making that hill his bitch, Joe made me his bitch. It may have been the lack of food items, but I attribute it to a swollen vagina. I haven't had a solid athleticoma like this afternoon since college cross country.
In my opinion, this is the sexiest thing to happen to the bedroom EVER!!!(Safe for Work)http://www.spikedhumor.com/articles...ome_TV_Bed.html
I'm listening to music on my phone. I have it on shuffle, and I chose the first song. It then played 3 disturbed song in a row, then two other songs, and now it's playing another disturbed song. I'm psyched.
Greatest article title ever!http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070723...F.rwdbiZsUL1vAI
And another disturbed song. Durp!
Good call, Baron.
And another one. My phone really loves Disturbed.
Happy Birthday to Slash, 42
Are you sure you don't have it on shuffle on a particular artist or album?
Oh and I realize that everyone will make me their bitch on the hills because well I am fat and out of shape and two I get scared easily.
Phil, what did you think about the "HILL"
I got up about 3/4 of the way up the hill and I didn't think I'd make it. And that was walking my bike up the hill. But I think it is definitely doable.
No, it has been playing other artists. It has also played 4 avenged sevenfold songs, two of which were back to back. I like how my phone rolls.
And another Avenged Sevenfold song. Awesome!
So at what point did you have to rub one off because of how awesome your phone is?
I've already done it like twice today.
And another Disturbed song.
And another Avenged Sevenfold.
And one more Disturbed.
Are you sure you don't just have Sevenfold and Disturbed on your phone?
Journey "Don't Stop Believing" just came on, and made me spit out water.
Because you are all probably sick of hearing about the music I'm listening to, here is an article about LucasArts making games for the Wii.http://wii.ign.com/articles/807/807282p1.html(Let's be honest though, if I was talking about Disturbed and A7X, this site would be dead)
And another Disturbed. It's been like an hour since the last one.
And just to clarify, it's not like I have every Disturbed song on here. I only have 12 Disturbed songs out of about 200 total on my phone. I wonder what will happen when I put The Sickness and 10,000 Fists on here. And, I have 11 Avenged Sevenfold songs.
And another Disturbed.
And one more Disturbed. Christ.
Ok is thing possessed? Are you sure you only have 12 Disturbed songs on there...I smell a rat.
You must have a really slow day at work, Jay.
I know I'm having a slow day. This is the first time I'll be leaving on time since I can remember.
I was actually pretty busy today. However, I can work and listen to music at the same time. And my phone is now loaded with more disturbed.
If they're not careful, the Falcons are gonna be the league's new Bengals.http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/...tory?id=2946878
I need a set of earbuds for my ipod. I cannot believe earbuds are so expensive though.
the painful ones are cheap.
Hurrr I'm Adrian...I can't afford earbuds...Durrrrrrr
That was actually pretty funny Jay. May you rot in hell!
I hope you get VD.
You guys should get married.
Song of the Day!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=acGR...amp;feature=dir
Tiffany I lost your email address (already). Can you email me? So Marc is making his downtown lunch debut this Thursday around noon if anyone is interested in going to lunch.
What is Marc doing downtown?
As soon as it's legal. I mean...what?
Hey Brent, have you heard of Flight of the Conchords?"Jenny" makes me laugh
To hell with Marc
Adrian - I found some other plans at River Park Place that you might like better than the studio floor plan.
I looked at River Park Place. My mom toured it and said it was nice. The problem is you have put up some serious cash if you want one that has a view of downtown or the river, which seems to be the whole point of living there. These condos near me also look pretty nice:http://www.keatsbluff.com/
Yeah, the Luxury Condo's are some serious cash, big time cash actually. That was basically mine and Abby's reasoning why we chose not to live in the Highlands. In order to get a house comparable to ours, you should to put down some serious cash.
If I was a single man, I'd live in River Park Place and buy me a crappy little sailboat so I could sail during the summer. But that is just me.
Still can't touch one for under $215K in Keats Bluff. I'd pay the money and either live in downtown or in Norton Commons, but that is just me.Adrian - Norton Commons has some interesting stuff going on, but you will live out near us.
I would prefer the River Front but damn those places are expensive. I might actually consider the loft .
what is the typical Percentage downpayment on condos?
I think 10% puts you at a point where you qualify for a much better rate. Douglas would know a lot better. Of course, everyone always recommends 20%.
I suck at math but say the condo is 150,000. That means the down payment needs to be 30,000? Where am i giogn to come up with the kind of cash-ola?
Adrian - It means you have to save your fucking money instead of buying weekly guitars and TVs.In order to not have to pay for private mortgage insurance (PMI), you need to put down 20%. You can do this by either saving your money and plopping down $30,000 based on your $150K condo price or you can plop down some cash, for our sake say $15K and take a second line of credit out as a Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) for that $15K to get your $30K. The downfall is you have 2 loans for your home plus the HELOC is typically at a higher interest rate.Another thing to remember, is that since you are a first time home owner you can qualify for a first time home owners loan and probably have to put less down, not sure how that works with the PMI. Abby and I also have our property taxes and homeowners insurance included into our monthly bill. I'd guess a condo wouldn't be that much to insure, and I don't have a fucking clue about property taxes with a condo.And one other thing, what about a home owners association fee? Residents of Forest Springs North pay $290 annually. Phil - do you have to pay a homeowners association due?
One would think living at home with what you'd make that you'd be able to save that up in roughly 7 months.But to make your decision even more difficult, here's the New York Times calculator on whether you should rent or buy:http://www.nytimes.com/2007/04/10/b...97a&ei=5070Here's the accompanying article, which is probably more relevent to people in LA or New York than us, but it is still interesting: http://www.nytimes.com/2007/04/11/r...d90&ei=5070Personally, I'd recommend renting a place for 6 months so you can get a feel for living on your own. Things that you don't think about right now (cooking, laundry, cleaning, etc) all are large factors when buying a place. Get a feel for how you will carry yourself on your own, and then buy a house that fits those needs instead of dropping $150,000 on a place that you think will fit your needs. If I would have bought a place after I lived with my parents I think I wouldn't have cared about anything as long as it had a big living room for a tv.
MSN has a pretty good article about renting vs. buying. I do agree with Phil, you should get whatever fits your needs.
Oh, to follow up with what Wes said (he's much smarter than me):I had to get a HELOC to get up to 10% to not have to pay the PMI. The interest rate is a bitch though.As for condos, you generally pay a fee to the condo association that goes towards upkeep of the parking lot, the outside of the building and the amenities. I pay $50 a month for mine, but my mom pays $290. She also has a swimming pool, a laundry center, a clubhouse and a storage area in a older building. The more stuff a condo comes with the more you'll pay. I'd assume the River Place ones would run $100 or so and you'd probably double that if had a boat dock.My insurance isn't much. I just paid it for my condo (Fire) and it was $250. And I paid roughly $1,400 in property taxes last year. At least that's how much I wrote off.
Okalona is up and coming since Douglas moved out there. You should try that Adrian.
According to that calculator, I have to buy a cheap ass house for it to really benefit me in less than a decade. I still want to get my own place, though.
If you read the article, it does assume that you are investing the money that you would be spending on closing costs and a down payment in the stock market.And lord knows I'd probably spend that money on hookers and blackjack
don't knock okolona, i've got a very nice 2 BR condo for much cheaper than what you fucks are talking about. As or a down payment, if you have good credit, you don't necessarily need one. if you want to talk more about it, i don't mind, just give me a call / email, firstname.lastname@example.org. There's a lot of ways to get out of PMI, the most popular is do put 20% down, but hardly anybody has or wants to put down 20% anymore, especially for your first place, and if you buy right, you won't have to wory about going under b/c of appreciation. I've already gained 5k in equity in living in my condo for a year, b/c it's a new construction, plus the area is building up around me. I went thru Republic, the guy Phil used, and he's very good, and considering i know a ton of people in mortgages, he beat out anything else I could've gotten. You have to open a checking account with them, but they automatically direct deposit your payment, so you don't need to worry about writing checks. As for a HELOC, yeah, the interest rate sucks, but keep in mind, that interest is all tax deductible, which helps out a lot when you do your taxes if you have nothing else to write off, plus the payment really isn't that bad, and if you're smart, you can continually pay that down. The more you pay it down each month to knock out the principal balance, the lower your monthly payments decrease. Say for instance your monthly payment on your HELOC is 100/mo., and you pay 200/mo., then the next month your minimum payment will only be 90, if you pay another 200 the next month, then your payment decreases again b/c you're lowering the principal balance you owe. This keeps you from coughing up a bunch of money up front for a down payment. The key of course is making sure you don't get too high of a payment that's going to cause you trouble.
And the man behind the curtains has spoken......it is always good to get advice from someone that was in the industry.

Which is 8 bottles in one? 8 bottles of Cristal would be $350-$650 a piece, so maybe $6000 if it was at the upper end of that. So, did the owner add a zero, and if so, why the fuck is it Yahoo's most e-mailed story when it is obviously a bullshit ripoff. Or, did some stupid fucker really pay $60,000 for a giant bottle instead of $4000 for 8 small ones?Notice the 'middle Eastern' businessman. There goes our gas money boys.
Lunch. Tomorrow at Noon at the Bristol. I believe some of you will be working very close to that area. (Joe, Adrian, Tiffany, Jen, Cuban) and whoever else can and wants to make it.

Marc - either one would be awesome.
Where is the Bristol?
on Main... 6th and main I think. There's a blue pony outside.
Thats right by the center for the arts if Im not mistaken.
oh, one block over. I never ventured down that way before. SCARY!
614 W Main is the actual address.
So the Following streets are represented.6th & Main - Jen5th & Main - Adrian4th & Main - Joe (I think)3rd & Main - ?
I'm actually 7th and Main... so someone else will have to be 6th and main.Tiffany, where are you?

Roar! Marc give me a call before or while you are making your way downtown tomorrow.
Roar! I'll just meet you guys over there.

http://www.wave3.com/Global/story.a...46&nav=0RZFindiana sucks...I found this on a link off of a link off of Deadspin.
My brilliant idea to adjust my front derailleur is a complete failure. It was not only too high, but way to far to the right. So I busted out my tools and got tweaking.But my dumb ass managed to snap the ceramic braze-on that attaches the derailleur to the frame. God damn it. I can't even find the stupid things on the internet. I'd like to think that in shipping the derailleur got jacked up which would explain it being so out of wack and broke the braze-on. And once I loosened up the derailleur to move it up it just fell off.The gods certainly do not want me on this road bike.
Take it to a shop, now.
I would go to that dude John next to Spinellis...he's a good friend of Dulin, plus he's close to your work.
ROAR!!! I get to leave work now... how awesome! AMERICA!!!!
Oh, it'll visit a shop. I'll probably just dump it at Cylcer's Cafe tomorrow.

what is a good leave time from my house to make it to the Bristol on time (without being too earlier or late)? i was thinking 11:15 -ish
That should be plenty of time.
I wish I had an entire morning to plan going to lunch.

I won't be on a road bike for the next few weeks, but I could be talked into hitting the trails on Sunday. It looks like rain today and tomorrow.Speaking of bikes, jerome is getting a bike based on this frame with all Ultegra components:http://www.bmc-racing.com/road_race...e5e4740696.html

That bike Jerome's getting is sweet! It should be a crime to use it as a commuter. Good job with dropping it off with John. I'll have to tell you a story I had with Joe Sohm or better post our email correspondence.
Scott and I plan on heading to Waverly or Jefferson County forest Sunday. Time will depend on how busy of a night I have on call.
Adrian - are you free Sunday?
Thanks, Brent ... I hope it won't just be used as a commuter bike. I agree that it would be quite criminal. Sounds like it might be time to grow a pair and do some serious riding.
What the hell? Where did that come from?
Way to go Captain Obvious. Your post did make me laugh though brock.
We're having a luncheon today for a girl who is moving on. They left at 11 to get the food, and are not back yet. Jay Hungry. Jay Smash!
So, our food gets here, I pick up the wrong one, and start to cut into it (I don't take a bite or anything) and when we traded it, the person who actually got it was PISSED. Whatever, he's a douchebag.
Why hasn't this been the standard for 40 years?http://www.cnn.com/2007/TECH/space/...woes/index.html
Honestly... I think they should be allowed to be drunk for launches. You don't do much on a launch but sit there an absorb skull-crushing G-forces. All the operations are done by the launch systems guys, and by the time you are done with the launch and need to actually do something, you'll have either puked or be pretty sober.
Yep, and that is coming from a dude that works at Vanderbilt.
I look at it like the "Lynnie DD Philosophy" - I'll get drunk now and you drive us there, then I'll sober up and drive us home.
Some of the deadspin commenters have put together a list of the Top 20 Cromulent Simpsons Episodes of All-Time. No surprise with #1http://deadon.wordpress.com/2007/07...-of-all-time-1/

Lynnie mentioned it to me recently. And I know Doc Brock had talked about it in the past, but I am up for the adventure of Natty Sci renting a cabin and chilling out Appalachian-style. Lynnie mentioned Gatlinburg, which has a lot of really nice multi-roomed cabins and shalays (however you spell that, damn you Firefox spell check). Lynnie mentioned anytime in September which works for me (except for the very last weekend). anybody else up for it?
I think the word is chalet and no surprise, it also rhymes with gay.
Shut your hole Brent, its a good idea. We can't all afford to go get the clap from a Laotian chick.September sounds good, but with football season, that might conflict. However, a cabin trip really doesn't require warm weather, so October and November are just as viable options.
The one advantage of a cabin trip: Burket can't get thrown out for being a douchebag in a bar, but the eating of eyeballs is still a possibility.
Did I actually get us kicked out or did we leave before we had a "talk" with security?Anyway, I should have a weeks worth of vacation the last full week of September, so the cabin idea could be a posibility.
I was looking at my call schedule for August, it's official...I'm off the weekend oy the 11 and 12th. Do you know what that means? I get to rock out at the SOUNDS OF THE UNDERGROUND concert. Who's going with me? By the way, it's at Waverly Hills Sanatorium. 13 bands are going to kick ass with headliners including LAMB OF GOD, GWAR, HATEBREED, SHADOWS FALL, and CHIMAIRA.
I think Satan might have a special guest appearance too.
chris, fyi, the waitress said she was going to get security, but i told her i'd get you out before that was necessary. I still wish i knew what you said to her to piss her off like that.
So I had no role in getting us kicked out?
Let's be honest, wes. You probably egged him on a little bit.
Chris, I will go to that concert with you. Maybe I won't throw up this time.
Jay - I am seeking for answers....I have no clue what happened. Like I said, when I woke up I was at Joe's....I didn't even think we went out till I realized I was wearing jeans and not shorts.
I know at one point Chris was choking the guy who was marrying his cousin, and you really had no part in that.
I just got an email from Bellarmine that they have cancelled my class this fall due to low attendance. That blows goats.
Hey Joe, did you guys hit the trails this morning? What kind of shape were they in?
Scott and I are going to leave the house around 4:30 to ride at Waverly.
I borrowed my uncle's road bike today and road from Blvd. Napolean by Bellarmine to st. Catherine's College in Springfield, KY on the other side of Bardstown to a family reunion. Total mileage, 70. Top speed, 46 mph. chased by dogs, 4. Chased by buzzards, 10. Near misses with deer, 3. I was the heaviest guy on the ride, my fat ass was flying down hill.
Adrian and I made it to Waverly this morning, and the trails weren't that bad but I am guessing there was standing water in some places. Apparently, they had a race there this morning too, all I can say is Team Papa John's look like some bad dudes on the trails.
So Adrian and I went back to my parent's house and rode some hills, Joe we have a new hill for you to make your bitch.
Their are a few hills between Louisville and Springfield that will kill a man. Hence the reason the buzzards swarmed the road
Doing anything tonight?
That seems like a pretty good trip to make Joe, was that 70 miles to and from or just there?
70 miles to there.
Jesus, I thought I was doing something with 40 miles yesterday. Joe, what was your average speed?
Joe is a wild man.
As Wes mentioned, we saw team Papa Johns the other day on their BMC mountain bikes. They are some troopers but they are still not straight for wearing those tights.
SHIT! Texierra got traded to the Braves
I'm simply amazed at how much of a fuss the smoking ban in Louisville has caused. You'd think this was the first smoking ban ever enacted. How many other cities have similar ordinances? Dozens? The amount of publicity that the smoking population is getting for complaining about the ban is sad.http://www.courier-journal.com/apps...EWS01/707300395

Marc - your name for trivia tonight should be:"Cheif Justice Roberts Has a Nice Trip and Will See You Next Fall"
... or Chief
Brent, I'm not positive what our average speed was, but I am guessing around 16 - 18 mph or so. The computer on the bike I was using needed a battery and I never checked anyone else's computer except to check the top speed after going down the biggest hill. 4 of us broke away from the pack of 11 and did a nice drafting queue to make the ride easier.
That's pretty good time, how long did it take you? 16 mph puts you at about 4 hours 20 min, while 18 mph is under 4 hours. Either way, for me that's pretty fast considering its Kentucky and Im sure you were going up some hills. I hope you had clipless pedals.
wes, u played no part, there was no egging on, you and i actually had nothing to do with us getting kicked out of the bar. a first, i know. my buddy matt nakajima is coming in town this weekend, so friday nite we'll be out on the town getting kicked out of places if anyone's interested
16 sounds about right. I was on a 1980 something Schwinn Tempo road bike with the clipless pedals. the shoes were a couple sizes too small but it wasn't too bad. Kentucky country roadways are hilly.

Anyways, how does the wii store the virtual console games? Does it have a hard-disk or something?
Jay might know, I haven't played my Wii in a while and haven't tried downloading any games.
Thanks Douglas, now I am curious as to what a certain person did to get us kicked out.
It has a hard drive where you store the games. I also bought an SD card so I can hold more.

Okay, for those who are actually interested. Lets plan the cabin thing. Lynnie originally suggested September, that works for me except I have a Saturday classes starting on Sept 27 through Nov 11 (not to mention having Monday classes as well). So I'd really like to go. So if we decide to incorporate a weekend by going, I'd prefer going before Sept 27 or after Nov 11. How does that work for anyone else? Asking now, because September (if that is when we choose to go) is not far off.So far I have heard that Lynnie & Cheryl, Tiffany & Me, Brock (and I assume Michelle), Chris (and I assume Joanna), and Jen are interested in going. anyone else? Joe? Adrian? Jay? You all interested? I assume Brent and Phil will stay in town and go biking and go to Molly's and O'Sheas that weekend.
300 is on DVD today
I'll go as long as I'm not the only single dude. Or if I find a special lady friend by then. So...as long as I'm not the only single dude.
Well, that gives us time for Operation: Get Jay Laid in Appalachia. I wonder what Transformers girl will be up to then. or Panda.
Okay, I just tried to plug in several different weekend dates. Looks like limited availability. I saw some availability in the beginning of December. I used this website.http://www.headtothesmokies.com/gat...burg/hotels.cfmThese really really nice cabins begin having availability in January. http://www.smokygetaways.com/cabins4.html
So what you are saying is that no cabins are actually available until December?
Also, if its a weekend trip, Michelle might be able to convince Clemson Jen and Doc John, Clay and Amy, Katie and Chris... just to name a few. I wouldn't be surprised if Anthony would be up for it... helping alleviate Jay's only single dude issue (unless he brings someone).

Okay, so maybe I got ahead of myself. There are in fact cabins available. I was looking for cabins for 12+ people assuming more people would be wanting to go. but there are cabins that say they sleep 10. open. or 12+ cabins open up in January. So it looks like September or November can work, if your schedules don't conflict. Here are some of the cabins that I think look nice.

Sean Green was probably the 3rd best player on his team at Male his senior year. Brad Gilsdorf went to LSU to play baseball and is now working at Famous Dave's, Cameron Hahn, Jay where is he now?, and then Sean Green. That team should have been way better then it was.
FYI--Sean Green is my cousin
Where is Jimmy now? He's married to a doctor and working at a baseball academy is the last i heard from Robby a year of so ago.
He is going to school full time and running his own baseball clinic thing in Tampa. Here's the link:http://www.ostingbaseball.com/
I like how there are two Starbucks within a half mile of each other with Cat's walk score.
Sean Green was a buddy of mine back in the day. And Cameron Hahn is Chris' wife's sister's husband.
I have a dispute with the walk score. It says saints is the closest bar at 0.97 miles. Google maps says 1.5 miles. Who knows who's right? I would've guessed FABD would've been closer (1.7 mi per google). Google maps also lets you drag your own route to count mileage.
I dont think registers FABD. It says the closest bar to me is Patricks (0.24 mi).
I also think it bases it in a straight line, not by roads taken. So if you don't mind crossing through people's backyards, saints might be closer
My walk score isn't too bad...I'd hate to give up 72/100. But it does miss the best bars. Oh, wait.....and the fact I'm not living there anymore. I suppose it would be nice to have a home.
Phil, I talked to Dulin yesterday and he wants you to email him.

I should be able to ride today as long as I get out of here at a decent hour.

So I just had a drunk chat with one of the alumni directors from Bellarmine. She claims that if we could come up with $1000 a year as a group then we could create the Natty Sci Scholarship for Excellence in Intramural Athletics.Just throwing that out there.
$1000 as a one time contribution, but I don't know about every year.How about the Natty Sci Intramural Athletic Program?
Could I put board member on my resume?
Or board of trustees?
What's that? 50-75 dollars a year each? To preserve our legacy? I'm in!
And it is tax deductible too!

I wondered why I had to make laps around the hospital to get to my parking lot. Glad I work in a safe place. I was used to being accosted by bums looking for money on a daily basis, but I didn't think I would have to come to the hospital armed. At least they're trying to "upgrade" the projects around the hospital.
That is crazy.
For some reason, I am not surprised.
Jay, I think a found a job for you to pick up since Bellarmine doesn't currently want you for the fall.http://louisville.craigslist.org/tf.../382651864.html

Ahhh, yes, Phil posted not long ago.Figures...Oh well, it was well worth a second posting.
My favorite things of the video:3) The 720, which by itself was insane2) His shoes exploding off his feet when he hits1) At the 40s mark with the dude on his back after the fall Tony Hawk exclaims "I can't believe he landed the 720"
I saw the double back flip face plant live last night from scott murray. that looked pretty painful too.
The Tony Hawk comment was pretty funny. So much for the "best medical staff," I dont think after a fall like that, you let someone get up walk away without x-raying the spine first. I'd hope someone's a little more conservative when I fall 40 ft to the ground and land on my back.
Working 8 hrs of OT on Saturdays sucks when they make you come in at 7
This is my first week of not working 70 hours so, I can understand how you feel.
At least you get paid extra when you work overtime.
Any plans tonight?
I was on the KYMTBA site and it looks like there is a race going on all morning long tomorrow at Waverly.
that is crap. I'm up for something tonight.
It looks like there was talk of a hill climb competition out there on something called Montana Mountain. I wonder if that's the big hill I can barely walk up, or if that hill is only part of a larger climb.
Btw, I did 9 miles on my mountain bike on the roads through seneca and cherokee. It is hot as balls out there.
http://winningtheturnoverbattle.blo...ll-players.htmlhttp://winningtheturnoverbattle.blo...nt-knowyet.htmlboth of these are pretty funny.I rode my bike to work this morning. If felt good at 6:30. Riding home was a bit warm. For the record, there are a lot of stupid drivers out there. the bike lanes on market and main are for bikes not cars. Red lights mean stop, not go. If you are in a car turning left you don't have the right of way if a bike is coming. I nearly died a few times today.

Are those the only races going on? I thought they said it was "all day"?
that is all I found on KYMBA.org. Anyone want to try otter creek?
I am guessing it is over at that last race then?
I think they typically stay around for a couple hours post race to work on the course and clean up their mess. Stupid hippies. But I could be wrong. I have to pick my stupid mom up at the airport at 1:30 so I'm out regardless.And fuck you, Joe. I had to take the even longer way home just so you didn't make me feel like a giant pussy.
I think we might be leaning towards an evening - ish ride
Otter creek in about an hour. If you are in call chris.
Otter creek huh?
I'm looking at Otter Creek's website and their trails are forever long, 8.1 miles 7.9 miles, etc...

We ended up at fort duffield. That place is fucking hard.
Is anyone interested in doing the Old Kentucky Home Bike Tour to Bardstown on September 8th-9th this year? The deadline before rates go up on August 19th. They have 3 trip options there: 50,70,100, and then everyone returns the 55 miles back on Sunday.Its also important to decide soon since we usually get hotel rooms.
When is the deadline? I might be up for the century ride but I will probably just go home that day instead of staying the night.
I found this pretty funny on MSNBC.com:Meston and colleague David Buss first questioned 444 men and women — ranging in age from 17 to 52 — to come up with a list of 237 distinct reasons people have sex. They ranged from “It’s fun” which men ranked fourth and women ranked eighth to “I wanted to give someone else a sexually transmitted disease" and "The person offered to give me drugs for doing it."

Singletrack.net rates Fort Duffield as "very difficult"http://www.singletrack.net/trails
A comic for Big Jay and Adrian: http://xkcd.com/299/I was out around 7pm. There were a shitload of people out and about. Because I'm a weak girly man I wanted to just work on getting my legs stronger so I just did the scenic loop a few times to let those hills kick my ass. On my last trip up I stopped to drink some water and I wandered over to watch a kick ball game. I got to see some drunk dude covered in tatoos wearing a pirate hat come running in from left field to screaming about kicking some guys ass over a call at first. I almost felt compelled to let everyone know that the dude was in fact safe, but the drunk pirates probably wouldn't take kindly to a stranger turning against them.There were a lot of fat girls too.
Nice one, I have noticed that the elliptical work outs I do have really helped my legs. Now I just need to work on some squats.
Phil, did you buy a Road Bike?
I have a Giant TCR-3. But it had some front derailleur problems so it's in the shop.
and.... I'm back at work. I hate revisions.

Not sure, anyone going to ride in this heat?
I'm down for a ride tomorrow. I went inverted yesterday and landed on the log I was trying to go over. It hurt. I think i will be good tomorrow. I really need to quit falling off my bike.
Do you have cycling shorts? If so, do you have padded ones?
what do you think of them? trying to figure out if I am going to buy some or not and wear under my soccer shorts.
I just bought a pair before the 70 mile ride. I don't really need them for mountain biking, I like them for road biking. They are nice to have, but not neccesary.

Phil, is there a way to figure out the alphabet in binary code or is it just memorization of numbers?
Alright, and only because I'm drunk. Everyone computer has its own way of representing characters. The vast majority (e.g. any pc I've worked with) uses ANSI.In ANSI the upper case a (A) is 65. And B is 66 and so on. So in binary 65 = 1000001 so A is 1000001. B is 1000010, C is 1000011 and D is 1000100 and so forth.Lower case a is 97 or 1100001 in binary, so b is 1100010 c is 1100011, d is 1100100, e is 1100101, etc.NERDS!
Phil, what did you do last night after we left?
Two Road Bikes in consideration. I want the cannondale but it is probably twice the price of the specialized. I know St. Mathews sells Specialized so i will probably be taking a look at them this weekend to see what kind of pricing they can offer.Cannondale System Sixhttp://www.cannondale.com/bikes/07/...del-7RST3D.htmlSpecialized Roubaix Comp Compacthttp://www.specialized.com/bc/SBCBk...p?sid=08Roubaix
Erin Andrews is pretty hot, but I think what adds to her hotness is that she is pretty knowledgeable about sports.
I was comparing prices at Bicycle Sport and Schellers, prices are much better at Bicyclesportinc.com
worm, i say we get up early on saturday and cut across the hills we rode at a few weeks ago and ride over to iroquois park. I don't think there are any bike trails but we can ride the roads. I will see if i can find a map and confirm a route.
I went up to O'shea's and all the owners and bartenders that I know where getting off work. It was a big time.
sure, whatever is fine with me.
Is anyone riding today?
Adrian, if you are willing to drop $6000 on a road bike, I'd take a look at the Moots or the Parlees too. And definitely check out the Madone 5.2. That's what Team Discover was using (albeit with dura ace components) and it starts at $3,500. But those two bikes seem to very well reviewed, but they are two different styles. The specialized is more of an upright style and the cannondale is a proper racing bike.
The trek Madone is an awesome bike.Bicycle Sport Inc. has a Madone SL 5.2 on sale for $2700. Same bike at Schellers for $3300http://bicyclesportinc.com/itemdeta...d=39&id=510http://schellers.com/itemdetails.cf...=39&id=3380
Naw, 6,000 clams is too much for me. NOw if you can find one for 5,999 then i might consider.The only problem i have with specialized road bikes is that Specialized is known for their quality/innovative mountain bikes.
TMQ is back. Happy days
I plan to ride
I'll be in the gym riding a stationary bike. Probably on random hill mode.
What time do you plan on riding?
I'll know after I talk to Chris.
he didn't answer his phone. I'll go any time between 5:30 and 7. If you are interested let me know. I'll be home around 5:15 call me or just post something.
Phil - You up for trails tonight?
Nevermind, you're probably going to trivia.
Yeah, sadly it is a trivia night. I definitely am planning on it for wednesday and/or thursday before I leave for New York.
it isn't as bad out riding as I expected it to be. Chris and I are down for tomorrow. Thursday I am doing the Trinity cross country alumni run and Friday is the run for the Hogs. So I am done for the week after tomorrow. The weekend will probably be cool to ride for me.
I just got an email back from our class president about our reunion. She told me to contact anyone I keep up with from our class. So Cheyrl, tell Sean that the reunion is Sept 8th, and the cutoff for registration is the end of next week. If he is interested (and hasn't heard it) tell him to email me at email@example.com. Bonus: Michael Lucchese is the one collecting the money.
Speaking of which, how many of you Trinity guys are doing the reunion at the end of the month? Phil, Chris, Lynnie, Dave?
I'm just surprised at how many of you are biking now. What happened last year when the big bike trek to Bardstown came around....Wes. Anyway, we are definitely doing it this year., on mountain bikes with road tires (its great...a little slower, but great). I just need to know how many need a hotel, so I can go ahead and book us a few. Let Brock or I know.
I backed out because it was suppose to rain all weekend. I don't think anyone really wants to pay $50 bucks plus weekend expenses to ride to Bardstown when all we really have to do is do it anyways.
Except for the 500 or so people who do it. Its mostly the social activity.I have a feeling thats the same kind of logic that will kill a cabin trip. "I don't think anyone wants to pay $100 to go to the mountains and drink when we do that at home anyways"
Yeah, I agree.
I'll pay to go to a cabin... I really don't think it's the same as staying home. Did we ever figure out what weekend to go, by the way?
September 8th is my reunion, and September 21st is the next stagger, so I'm free any other weekend. However, if those dates are the best for everyone else, I won't get upset if you all decide to do it.
I'd go drink at a cabin in Black Mite, KY if the opportunity presented itself right now. However, that would require me sleeping 2 days before I go because I'm dead.
My cabin blackout dates are the Saturdays between Sept 27 - Nov 11. I know Lynnie is going already in the last week of August, but is supposedly up for a group time as well. I know some of the cabins I looked at had a special for September (get 4 nights for the price of 3) or just a regular deal of 10% off if you mention you saw them online.
Jay, Brock - where are your 10 year reunions at?
We splurged this year and have a meet & greet at the school before a football game (which is fine since Payton is a senior and plays). The 5-year, we rented O'Sheas.... if that tells you how lame people get in 5 years.
I had to actually re-read what I wrote. "Payton is a senior"God, I'm old as hell.
Fairdale cancelled their 10 year due to lack of interest because enough people didn't purchase tickets before the event. The plan was to rent a hall, get a DJ and some stuff catered in and I am like, WTF? No wonder nobody bought fucking tickets. I emailed them and told them just to do it at O'sheas or something like that.
Ours is at the louisville science center. I'm guessing it will be the same room as our Senior dance at bellarmine. Hopefully it will be more crowded than that dance, though.
Anyone feel like trying out for a reality game show to win $10 million?http://jointhetontine.com/
I remember that dance vaguely... Michelle got trashed (weird, I know) and then puked... I think we were only there for like an hour.I had a much better time at Churchill Downs.
I won't be making the cabin trip or stagger. I will be on call for our Medicare apps.
Adrian, we'll have to meet up and have a Big Red some time.
Okay, I may be gay (not really) but this is one of the cutest things ever (with a touch of almost scary at the end)Wife Swap: Tiger and Pig Editionhttp://www.spikedhumor.com/articles...s_And_Pigs.html
You're bailing on stagger? That blows.
Yet another stagger Adrian won't make it to Shoney's.
So far, Adrian is the only one who has made it to every stagger I have. I can't believe he is going to let his record slip.
For the record, I know this is a stupid question before I ask it, but do any of you know of a single woman I could get as an escort to my reunion? And I don't mean professional escort. I have already thought of that.
Joe - I'll be leaving here around 5:15ish and will be home around 6, I'll grab my gear and be back out the door. Are Chris and Philco going?
Why do you need an escort to go to your reunion? I went to mine solo and a lot of people did, even people who were married. I remember this girl (hot) said, "Brent here's what I say to the married question, ask me if I'm Married?" "Jenifer, are you married?" "God no! Are you?"BTW, are reunion rocked, it was at some place on Main St, with a D.J. food catered by a Hyatt chef who sauteed food to order.
Phil or anyone, find that article that talked about Barry Bonds on steroids and how it wouldnt matter. There were a lot of calculations involved, sorry that's not much.
I'm perfectly cool with going by myself Brent. I'm just saying, it wouldn't hurt to have a ridiculously hot chick on my arm.
August 17th Superbad comes out.
Jay, just do what I did, and have your "gay" best friend saunter around you all night acting out of character, making people think you are gay as well. Unless, you have a problem with people thinking you are gay. But I remember you said you didn't.
I want a HJ from Erica Smith
Jay, i might be able to get Lisa's number. That is if Joe doesn't mind.
Personally, I'd go by myself. Can't pick up the lonely women if you have a date.
One other bike thing, the dudes that build the bikes have a weblog. Chris, the head boss man over there answers their "tech questions of the day." These questions are insane and somehow this Chris dude always knows the answer. Anyways, today's was especially bizarre:http://www.speedgoat.com/blog.asp?p=1024
Damn i want a road bike but i can't afford the bike i want.
building yourself a Parlee Z1?
Well then you have 2 options, save the money or buy a different bike.
Phil said he would yesterday. Chris in person said he planned on it.
Wes, Brent- Yeah, when I thought about it, I actually told my mom I was going by myself (She was impressed, because she didn't go to her 10 for that reason. As a matter of pride, I have to go alone. And yes, there are bound to be some single young ladies there with unrequited love for big jay)Adrian- I'm going to stab you in the face.
Naw, i can actually afford the bike i want. I just like to bitch about it. I just don't want to spend 4,000 clams on a bike.
What is the exchange rate of a clam to USD?
Adrian - you want to ride tonight too?
I am going to Ride the hills. I found the route to IRoquois park yesterday.1 clam = 1 US dollar
ITS OVER! I FINALLY FINISHED! I've successfully submitting my plead for the NIH to give me money.
My brain is so liquefied right now that I screwed up an "-ed" with "-ing".I better punish it more with some booze.

all football movie team and yes Cuban, Alvin Mack made the teamhttp://www.dotdsports.com/2007/08/a...movie-team.html
My remarks regarding a live draft:My dad, brothers, and I do a live draft each year. Since the league only has 6 teams, its not to tough to do logistically, but its really long. Plus, you don't have the nice feature of Yahoo keeping track of the draft (which, when the league is 10-12 teams, is very cumbersome).Although the event of doing an offline draft sounds nice, getting everyone together, doing all the tracking, and the unfortunate soul who has to sit down and enter all the picks, makes it a royal pain in the ass.Plus, if you have just 1 person who can't make it, an online draft will at least do a decent job picking players (even better if you prioritize early).
I put my vote in for online draft.But I know my vote doesn't count because I'm a communist.
The communist part doesn't matter, its because you are a Hoosier.
that has to be the shittiest all football movie team ever assembled.
Alright, let's put together our movie football teamQB-Shane Falco OT- Steve Lattimer ManumanaWR- Boobie Miles TweeterRB- Megget (Nelly from Longest Yard)That's all I got (I hope I got their positions right). I couldn't really think of any Centers, and Defense tends to get overlooked in movies.
I'll put together one later tonight.But Lattimer played LB and Boobie Miles played RB.
here's a question:should players be judged in relationship to their play against opponents on a different level, or over all athletic ability. What I'm saying: would a guy in a movie about a high school team ever make this list?
I think the fact that the website chose Burt Reynolds as the quarterback of their fantasy team should answer that question for you Phil.
Alvin Mack should startAlso, Deacon Moss (Longest Yard- 2005) should be the WR, Considering he was the best in jail and the NFL
I would normally say no to high schoolers but if you want to use the running back from the gridiron gang, Willie Weathers. That was based on a true story and the real guy (Michael Black) did go on to play in the NFL....I cannot argue.
Marc would say Turley (the Great Khali) would be FB
But at the same time, obviously at the HS level a kid is not ready to play in the NFL and that is all potential at that point. I say HS can make the practice squad but not the starting squad for football. Basketball, totally different.
you're all wrong, lattimer was a defensive end
Barry I think you are wrong. I want to say Steve Lattimer was the starting weakside linebacker.
Actually if you want to get technical, in the movie they play a 3-4 with Lattimer playing both DE and outside LB.Kind of like what Patrick Kearney plays with the Falcons.He did move to Middle Linebacker once Mack got injured
Thanks for clarifying Cuban.
For our all-time fantasy movie team, can we have Forrest Gump as our RB
sorry to disrupt the flow, but phil have you seen this? there's a binary solo in it for you as well.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WGoi...MSGu64&NR=1
...and with lattimer here's the sheet that confirms his place at the table (pause it right away)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lNVxedatlu0
Good find Barry. I stand corrected.
Sinbad is on my team.
Cathy Ireland is on mine.
Damnit Wes, its Kathy with a K. You have to spell the hottest swimsuit model of the 90s name right.
You all have have your "Footsteps" Falco, but I'm taking good ole Johnny Utah as my QB
I think the best kicker would be that donkey Gus. Leading scorer in the NFL in 1976.http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0074599/
can I include TV and have Al Bundy (RB) from Married with Children and the Billdozer Bill Dauterive (FB) from King of the Hill in my back field with Jimmy Dix (QB) and Billy Cole aka tae bo guru Billy Blanks who pulls out the gun and shoots everyone on the field (3rd down back when I need the first down) from the last boy scout?
You can have billiy cole on your team, but you need to remember that normal NCAA rules apply (i.e. no more than a 9mm)
Kicker Nigel the leg Gruff or the kicker for Springfield U with the taped up leg that bart heals

Joe, where do you meet for the start of the Run for the Hogs?
St. Joseph’s Church at 1406 E. Washington Street, between Adams and Webster Streets,in the Butchertown area of Downtown Louisville.
It is right off of mellwood and story avenue. I just did a 2k tonight in 8 flat. I'm shooting for sub 13:00 this year. I was 13 flat last year. I believe Phil was 12:30.
Phil, scotty ho won the alumni run. Alumni won 23-33. Varsity had won the previous 4 years.
What about Christopher Reid (AKA "Kid" from the group Kid n Play) from the movie Class Act. The genius who would use mathematics to boot 50+ yard field goals? That is my kicker.
Don't forget about QB/Punter/everything else Johnny Walker from the movie Johnny Be Good.
Wes, I'm with you on Kid from class act. However, his character was in high school. Although, I guess for kicker it doesn't matter.

Brent left me from the start with his first mile of 5:21. I only managed a 6:07 first mile. I did drop a full minute off my time from last year. A natty sci victory, is tonight an armaggaedon night? It feels good, it's out there.

Joe, Duathlon tomorrow at Long Run 8 a.m; you interested? The fee is $55 and it would give you title to a triple crown week.
http://www.kentuckianahealthfitness...duchallenge.htmI was shooting for this one September 16th. I rode trails this morning andI had nothing left in my legs.
My schedule for the season as of now is:Pioneer Run 5k September 1http://www.active.com/page/Event_De...vent_id=1464243that duathlon september 16http://www.kentuckianahealthfitness...duchallenge.htmLouisville half marathon october 21http://www.louisvillemarathon.org/This is what I would ideally like to accomplish this year
Rick Ankiel just went yard again for the Cardinals. Phil, we need a new post.
Joe, I remember you walking in at 8:30 this morning, and you said something about being out with kate and her friends. What happened?
I dropped Chris and Bill of around 11:30, came back here, you all were out, talked to Kate, went out drinking with them, didn't drive home till this morning.
Bom chicka wah wah
Joe, I ran that duathlon this morning. That was my first one and it was fun. The transition from road to bike is killer. Your legs feel like logs when you start to run. My bike time would of been a little better but I dropped my water bottle and had to stop and get off my bike and pluck it out of a ditch. I figured I needed water more than time...and I was right. My first 2 mi run was 13:30 something and my last two mile was around 14:20. I finished the race in 61-62 minutes, grabbing 2nd in my age division. The winner was around 45 minutes.
I'm not quite ready for that yet. I think I'll be ready in a month. I just got done running about 5 miles and my legs just aren't there yet.

I had to talk to poopie martinez this morning as I was leaving your house. That made me feel awkward.
Jay, was Dom-inator successful in her mission on Saturday night
I don't think so.
Has anyone heard anything about that game BioShock. I was at Best buy the other day and they were taking preorders for the XB 360. I can't look it up at work because video games are blocked by admin.
It's a first person shooter, but the catch is that as you go along, you mutate yourself to aquire new powers. I know one of the things you can do is generate electricity in your hand, put it in water, and electrocute any enemies in it.
This place is dead
I guess everyone is still recovering from saturday. I know I am.
Today's buzz features a picture of Chris Redman. The article also mentions Ibn Green (a name I haven't heard in forever) and Tony Driver. http://www.courier-journal.com/apps...STS18/708140311I know who Tom Jurich is, but who is Danny Mosby? The name sounds familiar, but I'm having trouble placing it.
I think there was a Dan Mosby that returned punts and played wide receiver for Louisville back around 97. Maybe he went to Male too?
Maybe. I guess I need to look him up.
It looks like I'm right, but this Mosby character doesn't have a lot about him on the internet. He's listed as having the second most punt returns against Michigan State in the 1996 season.http://msuspartans.cstv.com/sports/...bl-96super.htmlI also found a box score from the PSU site from 1997 where he is listed with a single reception.
The latest wrestler found dead, Brian "Crush" Adams.http://msn.foxsports.com/other/stor...119468?MSNHPHMA
I might just be thinking of him from his UofL days. Or maybe I'm just thinking of Ted Mosby: Architect. I'm not sure.
I'm assuming since Wes hasn't posted 100 times in the last two days that we are approaching or have passed D-Day.
That is probably a good assumption. Considering she is due any day. How did you ever work out the logic on that?
They didn't give me a Ph.D. for nothing.
Wes has been busy at work.Abby is 39 weeks tomorrow, which means she still hasn't had the kid yet. The plan it to check her into the hospital Sunday night and induce her for a Monday delivery if she doesn't go naturally before then. I expect Monday to be the day because I don't think she will go on her own.
