  1. USA Today ranks the NFL head coaches

    So, who would you have brought in? Keep in mind the cap space we had in 2014. Turn the garbage into facts.
  2. For those of you into history, the Bunker Hill monument is only about a 15 minute walk from the USS Constitution. Also, about 20-30 minutes away from Boston, you can walk the Battle Road - the route the British took in April 1775 to capture American supplies and weapons. The road ends where the first battle of the Revolution was fought. The spot where Paul Revere was captured during his midnight ride is marked. You'll also pass grave markers like this
  3. The USS Cassin Young is the next dock over from the USS Constitution at the Charlestown Navy Yard. It is in the water. You can still get on the Constitution and the museum beside the dock is pretty good.
  4. USA Today ranks the NFL head coaches

    Of the available free agents and draft picks from 2014, which one(s) would you have brought in to fill in at LT and RT? (Hint: there's a reason teams made runs at the OT position in the 2015 draft - there was a shortage of them in 2014.) We went into the season with Kelvin Benjamin and Jerricho Cotchery as our starters at WR. Benjamin was an unknown, but he showed the coaches enough during the offseason. Cotchery was coming off a season where he scored double digit TDs as a backup possession receiver. We also brought in Jason Avant, who was a serviceable possession guy. Philly Brown was brought in for his speed. So, you had KB and Olsen as big end zone targets. Cotchery and Avant as the guys who can make a quick grab to move the chains. Brown was the deep threat. Considering we hadn't developed a WR in over a decade at that point, we had to start somewhere - KB and Brown were as good as it was going to get in 2014.

    Like last season?
  6. NC DMV says Tesla can't sell cars here....

    We're actually 16th http://blog.cubitplanning.com/2010/02/road-miles-by-state/ The misinformation comes from NC not having county roads. NC has some city roads, but most of the roads are state roads. We have the most miles of state-owned roads.
  7. What happened to Netflix?

    I just wanted to jump in here and say that if you're only using the Netflix interface to browse for material, you aren't going to find a lot. Netflix only shows you two things: what it really wants you to watch, and what it thinks you will watch. Instead, get on a PC and google "Netflix url by genre" to get more complete listings. http://mashable.com/2016/01/11/netflix-search-codes/ is an example.
  8. Huddle Workout Warriors Part deux

    1 - I block all ads so I can't see what you're talking about. 2 - I didn't recommend any product or brand. In fact, I recommended the opposite. 3 - Running shoes are a very modern invention for a species that historically ran its prey to death. 4 - Believe what you want. I've been around enough to know that running in shoes is a foreign concept in many places in the world.
  9. Huddle Workout Warriors Part deux

    Barefoot running is more than a fad. It promotes arch health and strengthens the muscles of the feet. I recommended it because it forces you to strike with your forefoot, which helps correct many issues with form. Granted, no, you shouldn't just start barefoot running if you're not at least accustomed to walking barefoot. Read more from Harvard http://www.barefootrunning.fas.harvard.edu/index.html
  10. Broncos should double team Olsen and...

    Cam should join a PSYOPS unit in the Army. He seriously gets in people's heads like no one else.
  11. Been getting sick a lot lately

    Holy poo this. Do nothing except sleep in your bed. No watching TV. No answering texts. No calling people. Don't even fap in your bed - have another spot for that. You have to Pavlov your brain into realizing that, once you hit that bed, it's time for sleep and nothing else. The other advice you are getting will help too. However, I just wanted to second this piece of advice. I have struggled with insomnia for the past 15-20 years. Using my bed for nothing except sleep was the biggest thing that worked for me. Everybody is different, so it may or may not work, but I can attest to how it helped me. I often freak my wife out by how fast I fall asleep.
  12. Fear the Walking Dead, Season 2

    By being character driven, I mean it is unlike TWD where the plot lines follow a certain path to get to a certain point. We knew in TWD that they will eventually get to Alexandria and basically we watched to see how it happened. Thus far, it seems like Nick is the only character to have shown much development. Chris is doing the thing like on TWD where a character is on the verge of bringing down the group, then snapping out of it and being a strong "alpha" (think Sasha, Eugene to an extent, Gabriel, Andrea, maybe Beth?). If he mopes for a few weeks, then is suddenly "fit" for this world, I may just turn the show off for good. Been there, done that. The water attack seemed a little too forced, especially the way Madison pointed at the shipwreck. It seems the group is full of Glenns while two are already at Season 2 Shane stage. The show is supposed to be about how the characters get to that point, and I feel it is failing miserably. However, it has "The Walking Dead" in the title, so people will watch. Ratings = profits = nothing changes.
  13. How old is your primary TV?

    Looks like I'll be splashing about $3k for the Sony XBR-65x-930D. I don't see a better 65 incher on the market.
  14. Walking Dead Season 6

    Sam definitely hit some puberty milestones in between seasons 5 and 6. Carl has been doing it for the whole show while Judith gets a new actress every few weeks to stay the same age.
  15. Fear the Walking Dead, Season 2

    I wasn't all that impressed with season one. It really ticked me off that it was supposed to be about the fall of civilization, then time jumped 9 days and skipped that whole part. That said, it does seem to be more of a character-driven show than TWD, so there is definitely a whole lot of potential
