  1. The Packers saw enough in him to snag him after we cut him, and then sign him to a futures contract before he got nicked up and became an afterthought.
  2. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beau_Sandland Sign him post-Cardinals release. They've got at least three ahead of him on the depth chart, and I hated we ever let him get away.

    Leftist bickering goes here

    This. Another one people use that makes me cringe a bit is prison rape, and it is typically from the other side. I do see it among "leftists" from time to time, though. If you're using a bad thing (rape) as a justifiable punishment for anyone you simply disagree with, regardless of if they are actually in prison or not, then you're kind of defeating your own argument before it gets started.

    Game of Thrones - Season 8

    Also, 7 years ago yesterday, A Dance With Dragons was released. Best estimates are The Winds of Winter won't be out until next year, lol

    Where are you from?

    Also, I got my wife a kit from MyHeritageDNA a while back. Hers came back: 94.1% European (pretty much an even split between the North and West countries and the Iberian Peninsula (she's half Portuguese)) 3% Middle Eastern 2.9% African (1.7% West African/Nigerian and 1.2% North African)

    Where are you from?

    My sister did one of the DNA tests (I can't remember which one) and she sent me the screenshot of the results. Apparently my DNA originates from: Great Britain 55% Europe West 24% Scandinavia 8% Europe South 7% Low Confidence regions include: Ireland/Scotland/Wales 3% Iberian Peninsula 1% Finland/Northwest Russia <1% Europe East <1% So yeah, I guess I'm as white as they come. I've said here before that my direct lineages on my mothers side has been traced back to a German immigrant and early settler of Philadelphia in the earlier years of the American Revolution. He was a surgeon and crossed the Delaware with George Washington and was one of the top surgeons/doctors at Valley Forge. He was a pioneer of the smallpox vaccine. That's my mom's side. On my dad's side, I don't know a whole lot prior to the Civil War era. I do believe that both sides of my family were some of the first non-native people in NC. We also have some native history in there that's been lost in our DNA, I guess.

    The Walking Dead season 8

    Now there's speculation that Rick dying will really be Rick getting captured by the Whisperers and being gone for the rest of the season. Then, S10 will be touted as "the return of Rick Grimes!" or either Rick's head will end up on a border post. basically Glenn's dumpster 2.0... LOL if they do that. I really don't think it should be renewed for S10 either way, but it probably will.

    Team President

    Guess I'll go ahead and give the Huddle an exclusive... It's me. I'm the new team president. First order of business is pulling in Zaxby's as a sponsor for the concession stands. Second order of business is erasing the current library of musical score for gamedays, save "Welcome to the Jungle" and "Cat Scratch Fever," and replacing it with a heavy dose of death metal and hip hop. You're welcome in advance.

    Leftist bickering goes here

    I really don't either, tbqh. But, it would be some sort of marginal victory in deflating the current system a bit. Really, I think the underlying dilemma is that we want change and we want change now, IE. in our lifetime. The issue there is that I think it will take generations, if we make it to that point. Unless you're advocating revolution and/or civil war. If you're advocating that, then I think it is very unlikely to succeed due to being both out-manned and out-resourced.

    Leftist bickering goes here

    I'm surprised I haven't paid attention to this thread until today. TBQH a lot of the discussion here actually reminds me of some of my inner conflicts being played out as arguments between posters. I've long felt that the system itself is broken, and that there is no real winning side. It's a seesaw of progression and regression. People are herded like cattle to either side, and it is becoming more and more extreme. Things like guns, religious views, personal choices, etc. are used as weapons to further marginalize people that have already been marginalized by the hierarchy in place. But how do you fix what's wrong, or get rid of the hierarchy, without participating in the veiled one party system? I honestly don't know. I mean, voting is supposed to mean something, but it clearly doesn't. Is conscientious abjection of the system as a whole a solution? Not really. Is it the best decision? Maybe? I mean, even if you don't vote or try not to participate in the system at all, you are still subject to the laws etc. that come from it. I feel like the only available option, really, is part-time participation. Choosing the lesser of two evils is still evil. It's defeatist as hell, I know, but I'll vote for the third option every time if I have to until it is a legit option. If more people would do that rather than towing party lines, actual change might happen. Shy of Capitalism eating itself, or a massive natural disaster, or some other sort of societal collapse, I don't know how things change dramatically. But, if they ever do, good luck finding like minded people that aren't on the other side of the aisle from you. Most people that want dramatic change aren't really prepared for what comes with it. Neither are most of the morons who think they are already prepared for the worst.

  20. I don't know how much things changed, but dudes were lining up by the walkway around dawn, I assume, the few times I made the trip down to TC. I didn't see it in person, because I avoided that whole crowded mess as much as possible, but it has been said here that they'd actually push kids out of the way to try and get them. I think one of the last straws for me was hearing this hick lady guffawing in her most southern accent possible "Thar's Stephen Lafloors! Go Laflors! Yeah Lafloors!" Obviously, she was talking about Stefan Lefors, so you can tell how dated this is. I was all like, "omg stfu lady! our close proximity might make people think I'm here with you" in my head as I moved away slowly. But yeah, that kinda stuff and the swampy atmosphere was pretty much the end of it for me. There were some good times, too, for sure. But, in the end, my old, fat ass just didn't feel like making the 4 hour journey to endure that environment. I think the last time I went to TC was around 2007. Like you said, I can get all the info I need about it here for the most part.
  21. I know they haven't yet... I'm just saying I have no interest in going back unless they pay me... It is that heat and humidity, and tbqh between the grown men begging for autographs and the overwhelming number of uninformed redneck onlookers. It was just a big turn off once I reached my mid 20's. I don't think I've been to camp in 10 years or more. Fan Fest has always been "meh" for me too. It basically looks like camp with actual seating instead of an unshaded slope and chain link fences.

  23. Sorry, but the Panthers will have to pay me to get me to suffer that Spartanburg heat and humidity ever again. I went several times back in the day, but I don't see myself going again any time soon.
