    Truth is not subjective.

    again, I don't think you've crafted anything... you've misappropriated it

    also, I'm leaning towards Egate not being this Colby Ferrin guy or whatever his name is and actually being bwood.

    FWIW it isn't art if you're disconnected from what you're saying. It's disingenuous mimicry at the very least, and pretty disgusting appropriation tbqh. I will say that Egate is 1000x better of a rapper than E-Cat, but it still suffers from the above. It reeks of suburban privilege, and the fact that you're trying to capitalize on that says a lot about you.

    because the difference in people like him and people like you are that they don't have this relentless need to be relevant... did you ever consider that, just maybe, people gathering here would be so that they can share in their love for the Panthers primarily, and share views with other like-minded people? also, maybe some of our efforts are to try and bring up our fan base to a higher standard, so that one day Panthers fandom will be better for everyone?

    ABCB is the only rhyme scheme

    So you're trying to skew the argument that you think "liberals" should move to Mexico because they somehow think it is great? What part of the whole "we should allow immigrants into the US from Mexico because they are escaping a harsh life" stance don't you get? That is the hypocrisy of your entire stance on immigration. If it is so great that those people should stay there and not seek a better life here, then why don't YOU move there?

    Okay just had to stop it around the 2:15 mark... lame as usual Do you even know what a chorus or hook is? I mean really. What serious artist just casually leaves out a hook and lets music just play empty for several bars? If it was for a mixtape, I would say okay... but lol you still got a long way to go.

    A "Civil" war or a Civil War

    lol... Your ancestors came and took the land from indigenous peoples. We're literally a land of immigrants, unless you are 100% Native American. This isn't some quasi version of capture the flag in which you just camp your base and keep others out, moron.

    Here's a tip...or not

    I don't know that I've ever been in a situation where I've had to tip on more than like $75 total, lol.
  14. Our reasons for almost always being in zone coverage have been stated. Personnel talent wasn't adequate enough to shift things to more man looks. Our LBs typically cover zones very well. We have a strong front seven and a weak back four. It is all about keeping the play in front of you. The times the Panthers' defense fails is when you get guys exploiting zones, the pass rush not getting to the QB in time, or when guys just simply blow their coverage. It has been this way for a long time. Even in the Fox era some. It is about stopping the run at the line of scrimmage and forcing the pass, but keeping the passes in front of you. If you switch to more man coverages, you open yourself up to bigger play threats, which are momentum killers. Some of the bigger plays the Panthers have given up in recent years have honestly been bad luck. Luke covering Julio. Smitty catching that rebound ball. But, it is the more consistent, average plays that we give up too much. This typically happens when we play better QBs like Brees and they carve up our zones because they know what is coming, or when we face quick receivers like we like to have recently that are operating with QBs that have time afforded by good OLs. Those are the situations where our CBs ad Safeties need to be able to hold their own in man-like coverages. It is also where we need to not be so transparent. McDermott did a decent job with this, but I think we took a step backward last year.

    Here's a tip...or not

    Sonic is a weird one for me. Pretty much, I feel like I should tip because they brought it out. But then I think, in a way, it is only part of the aesthetic the chain was going for (the carhop,) and that I am still being served similar to what you see today in a slow drive thrus "can you pull up please" maneuver. So usually, it is this weird state of limbo I find myself in when they approach, and it makes the whole transaction extremely awkward.

    Here's a tip...or not

    If all they did was ring me up, they get nothing but my thanks. I know some people will argue that they do things like take the orders down, check it for correctness when it comes out, etc. but honestly I don't think that is tip worthy. If that makes me a cheap bastard, so be it.

    Here's a tip...or not

    The only real opportunity I have to tip is when we go out to dinner at a sit down place. That is the only real time I feel like someone is "serving" me, so I try to be kind when it comes time to pay the bill. Typically, I'll drop down to 10% if you're terrible at your job. Basically, this requires us to be your only table, and you only checking on us approximately once during the course of our meal. Also, if you're unfriendly, uninformed, or short with us, that'll get you close to the 10% minimum. On average, I'd say I'm at about 17%. I feel like 15% is the least you should do for decent to good service. I give most people the benefit of the doubt, though, and go to my average 9 times out of 10. We do have times though, where I'll tip in excess of 20%. If I can tell you're successfully juggling more than your share of patrons, or if I see another table being rude to you, or if I can tell you're having a bad day, or if I think you'd be down for any of the things @Happy Panther mentioned his exceptional waitress might have been down for: here's your tip plus an extra $10-20 bucks. Times I don't tip at all: I cut my own damned hair. I buzz it completely with the shortest guard and throw on a hat if I'm going to be in the sun. I can also line my own neckbeard up good enough to fit in in my backwoods county. If I order something to go/take out, and I walk in and pick it up myself, then I'm sorry, I don't think those people that ring me up deserve a tip. I don't drink, so I don't have to do business with bar tenders. In my days of going to metal shows, I'd give a $5 with no change for a bottle of water occasionally. I drive my own vehicles wherever I need to go, so no need to worry about tipping anyone for transit. But if I am out of town and use a cab or something, I stick to about 15%. I've taken cruises where I have avoided formal meals etc. because everyone on the cruise ship wants a tip. I can be cheap at times, I know, but I feel like if someone is generally serving me, and it isn't through a drive through window, I should take care of them in relation to how they have taken care of me.

    The Walking Dead season 8

    PPS I read a rumor the other day that Maggie and Rick just simply walk away off the show, in opposite directions. How dumb would that be? lol

    The Walking Dead season 8

    I'm pretty sure now that TWD won't be coming back for a 10th season. Rick's gone. Maggie's gone. Some rumor that Michonne is gone. I'm thinking Carol may be done too, as they're shacking her up with Ezekiel, which gives me hope that maybe she'll finally get her comic death soon. They bumped Reedus' salary up to make him not outright quit, I think. He'll be the main character for probably the last half of S9. It hasn't been renewed, ratings are some of their all time lowest, and Gimple basically ruined it. Also, I just read the other day that Kirkman and several others sued AMC back in 2017 because their profits were being marginalized like Darabont's were. That can't bode well. I think, if anything, they'll try to merge some more characters into it and make FTWD their single zombie show. RIP. Should have stayed with the canon, and it would have been able to keep going. Scott Gimple shouldn't be able to get work after this.
  21. extra pie for using the "couldn't care less" saying correctly rather than the Huddle typical "could care less"
  22. I'm not trying to wax philosophic or reflect on my own more misanthropic times, but you can't tell me that you don't get at least a little joy out of seeing someone who's dealt harm to you or someone you care for somehow getting the same in return. Case in point, if Smitty would have been held to two catches for twelve yards in the "bring your goggles" bowl, you'd probably have been all like "HAHAHA you bastard! That's what you get!" But that day karma favored the 5 foot 9 and a half one time Atlas-esque castoff. Therefore, I reveled in the misery of my fellow fans as he crushed his enemy, saw them driven before him, and heard the lamentations of their women. That's probably the only time I can ever remember pulling for someone on the other side of the sidelines from the Panthers during a game. We can agree to disagree. It doesn't mean I don't love any of you any less.
  23. I'll have you know I now try to keep my beard line from dipping down too far into my neck region! I'll never give up my Cheetos or my Smitty jersey, even though it is one of the crappy painted on numbers one and the numbers have worn damn near off! Look, I know Smitty is probably one of the main things we disagree on, you and I. I don't want to sound like I'm defending the actions of the twenty something hot head that lots of people seem to remember him as. Because, really, I'm not. There is no excuse for that kind of thing, especially against your own teammates. But, how may here were cheering things such as "Ice Up Son" or when Smith straight went after the Saints in the end zone after they were being dirty with him and rookie Cam back in 2011? Why is his aggression treated differently when it is against someone on another team and not one of our own or one of our fans? Not many people spoke up about these things when he was here. But as soon as the door closes, the talk begins. It is cowardice in a way, and in a way it mirrors how the Panthers org treated it. Smith had a right to be bitter with the way his situation was handled. He gave us all more than that and then some in his time here. Sure, there were bad moments. I know it is apples to oranges talent wise, but IIRC Kerry Collins was allowed to go to another team and succeed without all the hatred. He was probably a worse SOB than Smitty at times, but nobody ever talks about that. Pep even suffered the same vitriol that Smith gets when he left. "He's lazy. He doesn't try. He's not a leader. He's a bad teammate." Again, I don't know that I've ever had legit hate for a former Panther outside of Carruth. If you or anyone else wants to hate Smith, then that's cool. Go for it. But, in the end, it doesn't really hurt him or his legacy at all. He's paid the cost to be the boss. He's had consequences for his actions. Some that believe in karma could attribute Smitty's injuries, or being stuck with Jake Delhomme, Rodney Peete, and Jimmy Clausen for most of his career as the universe's way of achieving balance. But you know what? Steve Smith got back up every time and kicked karma in the teeth and went to work. That is why I admire his achievements with the Panthers and among WRs in NFL history.
  24. y'all sure sound like some bitter ex girlfriends...
