I lost all my jerseys, shorts, shoes, and helmet in the fire. Never replaced them, and the bike went into the shed, never to emerge again.

That was 2005. :(
So do you just go around naked now?

Like, you can ride a bike in street clothes, i don't understand the problem.
 
Poor mans viagra basically. Another sympton of the American Healthcare System.

Back to random crap.....

Count Duckula was awesome.

I was tempted to put this in the baseball thread, but it's so good everyone needs to see it. It's quite long if you go all the way through the thread but it's quite worth it.


For those who don't want to go through the whole thing, here it is with main pictures on Reddit.

 
The D-backs are great when it comes to being tech.savvy like this.

Best part was that they both got game balls from the team as well.
 
Glad I'm not the only one.

I wanted a movie where David Bowie and Tilda Swinton played as brother/sister (or maybe even as Jekyll/Hyde). Too late now.

From /r/imaginarymaps, I present to you, the Holy Roman Empire of America
... how did they determine where the geopolitical lines would be? Why is the Grand Canyon its own entity, and not part of Arizona or Deseret? How did they decide the two Coloradoan entities would be Boulder and Denver instead of, say, Denver and Colorado Springs? Why does Arizona own Roswell and Artesia? Why is most of New Mexico part of Texas instead of Colorado or Arizona, with whom it is really more geopolitically aligned? Why is Texas one giant megaconfederation when really it should be at least 3 or 4 distinct entities (Let me tell you, El Pasoans and Metroplex residents do not particularly feel much in common with each other, for example, and Houston and DFW both would wield enough influence to be the central economy of their own nation)...

SO MANY QUESTIONS, and I'm sure other people with higher levels of familiarity with other parts of the country have similar points about those...

Toledo would not be the center of the Northern Ohio region. In fact, I'm pretty sure Toledo, Cleveland, and Columbus would all be in one group with Pittsburg and Detroit and it would be called Lake Erie Union. Cincinnati gets absorbed into Kentucky, everything else becomes Ohio Heartland.

I'm honestly betting this was designed by looking at geographic features and nothing else.

Ah, that explains it. The cartographer has only been to America once.

Thank you for the long feedback !

I will not hide that I am very ignorant and lack a lot of knowledge about US geography and Culture. I only went in the US once. I tried to get informations before the map making but I know it’s very lacky and superficial.

I received a lot of corrections about mistakes and misses of the map so I hope that I ll be able to remake this map in a more proper manner.

Yeah, the idea that the DFW Metroplex would be bisected by an area created by the fork of the Trinity River... and given to WICHITA FALLS of all places... made me chortle.

Did that map break the boards? Things are really slow at the moment.
Depending on your connection, it could be bogging down this thread.

Objects hidden behind spoiler tags are still loaded as if they were not spoilered, which is a change from how spoiler tags used to work back in Xenforo 1.0.
 
Now, I knew Elon being on SNL was going to be cringe but.... fucking CRINGE just from the bad writing. Tonight is going to be pain.

My youngest stepson and his girlfriend were living here, they went through this phase of talking Doge at the table at dinner. They thought it was hilarious---until I started doing it one night. It became instantly uncool and they never did it again.
