#2915164 My Plan for Dealing with Jackasses

Posted by Zaximus on 29 August 2014 - 02:32 PM

I know exactly what Captroop is describing and it's not just that one example... I see it a LOT driving.  I've seen it plenty of times... not just at exits...

 

Construction area... miles of notice that a lane is closed... multiple signs and cones... 95% of people will go ahead and merge over, but there's that 5% that push it and try and cut in 20 yards in front of the last sign where they would either hit the sign or the next person in line.  Oh, they knew they had to get over, they just didn't want to wait in line...  asshole.

 

 

A percentage of people on this planet literally think they are the only person that matters.  Those people are assholes.

 

I see it.  Every.  Day.  This isn't a once in a blue moon thing.  Yes, I can tell who is going to be the asshole and cut you off too.  It's the person FLOORING the gas in the lane beside you trying to get ahead.  It's pretty easy to tell.  Also it's like 90% of the time someone in a SUV or a truck.    I don't let them over.  I don't care.  When I see them flooring the gas trying to get by I just tailgate the car in front of my and don't let them over.  Sadly, some poor shmuck behind me always lets them over.   I despise people that try to cut lines and think they are so damn special.  Unless you have flashing lights on top of your vehicle and a siren you aren't more special than anyone else sitting in this line.   Morons like this are a huge reason for traffic issues.

There are talks to do an X-Files reboot

Gah I worry they'd ruin it.  X-Files was the first show I fell in love with and I was pretty young when It came out but it was something my dad and I watched.  I thought the Scully/Mulder thing was great and nowadays they'd ruin it by making a love triangle somehow. 




#2912976 NFL :domestic violence first offense..6 games ...lifetime ban 2nd offense

Posted by Zaximus on 28 August 2014 - 03:59 PM

If they try to put 6 games on Hardy, he'll have a good case against it because it was pre-altercation.

 

I still don't think Hardy gets convicted though, there is a lot of odd stuff in that case.

 

The way the court system is in America, men are fighting an uphill battle when a woman makes allegations.   Just a call without evidence can get a guy locked up in NC at least.  I seen it with my brother and his ex-wife.  So this will be hard to deal with, not all these cases will have a clear video like Ray Rice.

 

I wouldn't rule out signing Hardy back, especially if he dominates.  How could we let him go after that?  We'll have some leverage if he actually gets convicted.




#2910785 Who was it that told me the meatloaf at Tavern on the Tracks was good?

Never liked meatloaf. I always see thrown up cat food when I see it.

Well then in that case we all better just lay down and let them have their way with us.

 

I don't want that, but I'm afraid it has already happened.   Before we rise up, we'd have to stop arguing over things like same sex marriage, weed legalization, race relations, religious nonsense,  and finally realize what the true divide is that is pushing us away from each other which is shown on those graphs in this thread. 




#2907033 Saints Fanbase Ranked #3 by Forbes

Until I started posting here, I had never heard of this and still find it very strange. Why would you go to another teams game all the time in your teams jersey? I mean I understand if you want to see the occasional live football game so you go to the local teams game, but they have people with Panther season tickets doing this. A lot of times these people are at the Panthers game while their team plays at same time, why wouldn't you want to watch your own team play on TV at home or at a local sports bar with fans of same team? It makes sense if it's playoffs or SB and your team is eliminated, but otherwise, Just so strange!

 

It's actually pretty simple.  Charlotte is a huge melting pot of people.  Being the #2 banking city in America brings a lot of people down here from up North, and with them, their teams.  Other jobs have done the same, not to mention people flocking to the triangle area for jobs as well.  Less taxes, less cost of living, and a booming economy brought down tons of people.   I know some real estate agents and half their clients are from NY.  They inherit their parents' house and sell it for a good sum then buy a bigger and nicer house in NC for half the money as the one they sold.    That, combined with the fact that before the Panthers came around people in this area were Redskins and Steelers fans and still hang onto their old teams.  

 

It's a catch-22, on one hand you want all Panthers fans there, but on the other if we weren't a melting pot there is a good change we wouldn't even have sports teams.   Our best bet is the children of those fans become Panthers fans from growing up here.  It'll take time.  Not having back to back winning seasons also hurts the growth.

That's nothing.  Take a ride in rush hour traffic with my wife and you'll learn what the term adrenaline rush means.




#2901423 My last shot of Steve Smith as a Panther....

Posted by Zaximus on 21 August 2014 - 04:12 PM

I hope Thomas Davis lays him out lol.  You know a good bit of our defensive players can't wait to take him on in a real game.

You won't get 6mb, you'll get something in between probably 3-6mb I bet.  That's pushing it if you want to stream Netflix in HD glory.  Not to mention if you have other people using the connection.   Also, I'm pretty sure the actual television feed is through that 6mb connection too.  I'd probably want at least 15-20MB at the min.




#2901016 Rumors the Hornets might be interested in Josh Smith

Posted by Zaximus on 21 August 2014 - 11:13 AM

Smith is someone that is awesome when playing NBA2k14 but when he's on your team and you have to watch him each game, he drives you crazy.

Body cams should be mandatory now.  They aren't super expensive anymore.  Also more recording at 360 around a cop vehicle too.  Keep everyone in check.
