#3085737 Ways to enjoy this season...

Posted by mr beauxjangles on 13 November 2014 - 04:01 PM

keep watching the games because you enjoy football, aren't a fair weather twat, and have, after all, endured jimmy clausen so whatever you are about to watch, it will never possibly bring about that level of pain and embarrassment.

or get yourself a blowie.

Horror story? Are you sure?


I watched my father die a slow painful death over the course of 15 months following diagnosis with inoperable stage four lung cancer. He made it much longer than many expected but he didn't have the energy to even enjoy his family and friends' company for the last six months of his life. He ate a diet of nothing but ginger snaps and key lime pie for the final two months because he couldn't find anything else that he could even get near his mouth without making him gag. Unfortunately he didn't die directly from his cancer. One morning he must have mustered enough strength to think he could drive my stepmother's car down the road a half mile to fill up her gas tank and get her some flowers. He loved taking care of her and it was so hard for him to be taken care of instead; he just wanted to do her a favor that morning. On his way back from the gas station, something happened - he crashed the car head on into a tree going at least 55 miles per hour. To this day we do not if it was an accident (did he pass out at the wheel?) or if he was trying to commit suicide. Sadly, he survived the car crash and spent his final 72 hours in absolute agony with a shattered pelvis, broken femur, and compound fracture of the tibia and fibula in the most awfully depressing room at WakeMed, this on top of not being able to breath because you have tumors that cover both lungs and have fully engulfed your heart in the process.We knew that he didn't have the strength to recover from the injuries. There were no options. We ultimately decided to send him for hip replacement surgery, knowing full well that there was little to no chance he would be able to come off a ventilator once they put him on it for the surgery. Two days after the surgery we had to take him off the ventilator. I watched him take his last gasping breath.


I didn't write all that for pity - absolutely not. I am at peace with everything that happened. I wrote it only because you asked for a horror story. And let me tell you, it can be horrific. I am also not trying to throw stones. I smoked from age 16 to 27. Been smoke free for five years. You can do it.

You just throw it into a processer?

Yep. Might add some water or adjust olive oil depending in if you want a somewhat chunky or completely smooth dip. It'll come out like hummus just minus the tahini and cannellini instead of garbanzo.

7 lb butt went in the oven at 5:00am. I will prove to all purists that a solid bark can be obtained in the oven with photo evidence around kickoff.

#3000753 Game ball, who gets it?!

Posted by mr beauxjangles on 05 October 2014 - 04:00 PM

For anyone that re-watches games, go back and follow Luke. He was incredible today. Cason made some incredible plays. And the call on 3 and 3 that went to Olsen on with about four minutes left around 8 yard line...looked like he was going on a slant to the end zone (as he so often does) and then went for a quick out. First down. Great call.

I've been staring at this for 4 minutes and I don't get it. Is it a sailboat?



Not seeing it here either.





#2947000 Lesser known spelling/grammar fugups

Posted by mr beauxjangles on 13 September 2014 - 08:11 AM

People using "insure" when they mean "ensure" is my personal peeve.

Also, those who write "could of" as some phonetic yet grammatically incorrect version of the contraction "could've" instead of "could have."

#2943198 Need suggestions for smartphone apps.

Posted by mr beauxjangles on 11 September 2014 - 08:56 AM

Flipboard is my personal favorite. It compiles all of your favorite news sources and lets you create custom magazines.

Weather Underground's WunderMap app has basically real-time radar - way better than Weather Channel

If you travel a lot, download the airline apps you need.

Uber, if you live in a City where Uber is available.

Convert Units is another handy app that I use regularly.



#2930418 On Cam Newton's Playing Status...

Posted by mr beauxjangles on 07 September 2014 - 10:05 AM

Cammy Cam is gonna play. Two weeks removed from hairline fractures? Come on. Quarterbacks play with these jackets all the time. You don't sit Cam Newton for week one against a division opponent when he has a manageable injury. The man is gonna play.

Do we know that he isn't flamboyant? ESPN didn't keep a camera crew around him for 4 days during the draft because of his football skills.


Have we seen him parading around with a skirt on and his shirt off as the men are depicted in the photo? No, we haven't. Do we know that he isn't "flamboyant" outside of what we've seen on television? No, we don't. And that's part of the point. The image projects a stereotype that, even though we don't know about Michael Sam, he is a gay man and all gay men must be flamboyant, therefore we must depict him this way. And then we should all have a good laugh about it. What the fug is that?


And for the sake of argument, let's assume that he is a flamboyant gay man. Does that make it acceptable to ridicule him? On what fuging planet do you people live? I can't believe that so many people are defending a picture that so obviously ridicules a man for being homosexual. I haven't been to rural North Carolina in a long time. I guess it's easy to forget how prevalent intolerance still is in some parts of the country.


See that...I don't have all the information about who you are or where you live, yet I just projected a stereotype onto all rural North Carolinians that isn't accurate. Pretty fuging ignorant, huh?


Apologies to everyone else for turning the post a pic thread into the tinderbox momentarily...here's a pic.

i love taking shots at the cowboys as much as the next guy but this is not funny in my opinion. it perpetuates terrible stereotypes and i think it should be removed by a moderator. my two pennies.
