#2742353 Did I overreact?

Posted by thefuzz on 17 April 2014 - 02:36 PM

So iow someone can take their ratty ass mange mutt anywhere they like and no one can say a word?  Nice.



Gotta be PC homie.


Funny, an old couple and their mutt mini dog just came into my office, and they dropped the leash and let the mongrel walk on it's own.


Not thrilled.

#2742285 How America Pays Taxes—in 10 Not-Entirely-Depressing Charts

Posted by thefuzz on 17 April 2014 - 01:47 PM

You are quite free to move to another country.  


I've never understood this point of view.  I hate taxes as much as the next guy but calling it theft is too hyperbolic for me.  


I didn't call it theft.  I answered the question.


How American Pays Taxes: Under the threat of imprisonment.


Give everyone the option to pay, and see how it goes.

Our tax burden is really really really low comparatively so I never have understand why people bitch and moan about our tax burden.


My husband doesn't beat me nearly as much as Alice's husband does....I have a great thing going here.

I hope this ends well for you, but at the same time, I kinda think I want to party with this guy one night.

#2741083 What if we use the draft to help the future CAP?

Posted by thefuzz on 16 April 2014 - 11:38 AM

actually i wasn't aware it was that high. for his production value i wouldn't say that's terribly unreasonable, but hopefully he'll extend his contract at some point and negate some of the year-to-year hit


Yup, Hurney strikes again.


I don't want him gone, by any means, but if he won't extend, or take a pay cut (never happens), I can't see him sticking around.


He will have to extend, and take a much lower per year number going forward for DG to keep him long term.

Gather as much water, ammo, guns, food, and building supplies and find a "home base".


Start trying to get gas on a regular basis, electricity to run the pumps will most likely be shot.


Outfit a truck and start looking for others, and for collecting goods to take back to "home base".


Try to figure out what happened.


That would take the better part of a month or so.  After that, we would be dealing with a laundry list of other issues.



#2739840 Getting 8 hrs of sleep/night for more than a week

Posted by thefuzz on 15 April 2014 - 09:22 AM

I have always NEEDED at least 8 hours.  It's not quite as bad now as it was when I was younger.


Plus I stay high on caffeine most of the time now.


Same here, for some reason, I feel that I need a little more sleep than a lot of my friends.


If I can get 8 though, it's all gravy.

#2739826 17 year old dog can't walk anymore what should be my next step?

Posted by thefuzz on 15 April 2014 - 09:10 AM

P.S. you can still bring him home and bury him on your land.


I wrapped my guy in a set of my sheets (not allowed on my bed ever, but it was his favorite place), built a coffin for him, and buried him at our beach house overlooking the sound.


Then proceeded to drink too much bourbon and cry for a long time.

#2739801 17 year old dog can't walk anymore what should be my next step?

Posted by thefuzz on 15 April 2014 - 08:54 AM

He's been my best friend since forever and for the last day he hasn't move except to maybe change his position by using his front legs he doesn't eat unless i manully feed him and i havn't seen him drink water. he's had a long life but i don't know if i should take him to the vetand let them put him down or let him pass away peacfully here at home and bury him here. i live in the country so i have a big back yard where he used to play. What is the best method for him.



I lost mine in November of 2012, worst day of my life so far.


If you can't get a vet to come to you, please go ahead and do the big guy a favor and get him there.


My bully was in horrible pain, but wouldn't show it, and wouldn't let go either.  We laid together on the vets floor, and I fed him vienna sausages and let him lick ice cream off my finger until he was happy.


The doc gave him a mild sedative so his last minutes with me he wouldn't be nervous about being in a vets office, and that's all it took.  Just getting him to relax and take his mind off of living for me made him slip away.  He never had to get the poison shot.


Take him asap, he is probably ready to go, but can't.

#2738880 Does arm length (OT) really matter?

Posted by thefuzz on 14 April 2014 - 10:31 AM

Do they matter?  Yes, however it's not the end of the World if they aren't prototype, as long as they have good technique.


Very similar to arm strength for a QB.  As long as it's "average" you can win lots of games with them.

#2737519 Would Gettleman have drafted Cam?

Posted by thefuzz on 12 April 2014 - 02:48 PM

Good response in your overall post. 


However, I want to point out the Panthers broke down film of every throw, run, hand off, sack and incompletion of Cam at Auburn (along with interviewing the Auburn coaches). And they noticed a few things in their break down, questioning about Cam:


1) He made, could make all the pro throws

2) He had excellent pocket presence (or at least what could be expected, and much better than Gabbert)

3) The overwhelming majority of his runs were called runs, and he had excellent discipline not to run, as he does now.

4) He was a leader on the field. 

5) Malzhans (sorry if I spelled it wrong) system wasn't as simple as many wanted to believe. 


So at that point, it became a work ethic, football intelligence question (and those were already answered in the interviews, background checks), because the Panthers new the physical tools and discipline were there. 




Agreed on all of the above.


I was nervous, because in my memory, I couldn't think of another QB who completed less passes, started less games, and only played D1 football for one season and became a no. 1 overall pick and a Pro Bowl player.


I'm glad we got him, and am glad he's our QB.  There are only a handful of QB's playing the positon better than he is right now, and he is just now entering his 4th year.

#2737411 Would Gettleman have drafted Cam?

Posted by thefuzz on 12 April 2014 - 01:20 PM

Most of those concerns you (and other Panther fans had of Cam) were answered long before the draft by the pool and NFL scouting reports and team back ground checks. Trust me on that one.


It was never an issue (especially with Gabbert being so bad). They saw what Rivera, Hurney, Don Gregory, etc., saw. No mystery there (though its so hard for some of us to believe). 


All that stuff in the media that spooked you was just white noise for ratings, talk (and the occasional hater). 



Disagree completely.


I had questions about his time under center, his number of college D1 starts, his footowork, and his accuracy.


I didn't care about icon and entertainer, fake smile, pay for play, and for that matter the computer...I had questions about him being able to come in and compete and play from day 1.  What you need the no. 1 overall pick to do.


Wasn't being a hater, racist, or airbag.

#2737406 2014 Masters

Posted by thefuzz on 12 April 2014 - 01:13 PM

Yes, yes and no.

Have played Lockwood and Rivers Edge. Lockwood is OK, Rivers Edge is hard as fug.

Porters Neck is fabulous. Landfall is excellent as well (only played the Dye course). Idk anyone to get on Cape Fear.

Playing Carolina National this Sunday morning.

Masonboro here in town is very nice.

Cape Fear Natl in Leland is probably the nicest public course in the area now.


CFN is really nice, but I prefer the Landfall courses a little more.


Had a chance a week or so ago to play CFCC and had to work.  Bummed.


Buddy of mine has a connection at Eagle Point, but I have not been able to get on there either.
