  1. Why did Americans lose interest in space?

    The main thing is just that you're hella anti Soviet. I think that'll burn itself out probably.
  2. Alcohol Thread!

    Mountain Dew is literally not consumable, period. But i'm gonna give you a day pass..because i've been there on weird cocktails more than once.
  3. Home Improvement/Remodel Thread

    What kind of a creep actually enjoys hand washing dishes though? Honestly? It's so weird and unpleasant. I'd rather spend a thousand hours troubleshooting a dishwasher, before i spent 500 hours washing dishes by hand. It's just an awful procedure that makes me hate life for every single second of the operation. I always have more dishes to hand-wash than i ever want, as it is. Even after a dishwasher exists. It's one of the most tedious things a human being can do imo. Also...just fix the leak imo. Whether you're gonna use it or not...leaking stuff is bad. Needs fixed.
  4. Home Improvement/Remodel Thread

    What @vike daddy said about needing to actually run the dishwasher to run the pump to evacuate the accumulated water. But also...why wouldn't you just use the dishwasher in the first place?
  5. Unpopular culinary opinions

    Yikes. This is unpopular with me. Sounds like you don't even really want a pizza. You just want a pile of melted cheese on a cracker with a bunch of sauce. Which is bad. The crust is like...the one element that's legitimately hard to replicate just right at home. It's fundamentally make or break. Cheese is hard to screw up. Toppings are hard to screw up. Sauce can have a wide range of acceptable outcomes. Crust...it's either good, or it's got that bad homemade thing to it, or the "frozen pizza crust" trash.
  6. The Car Thread

    As stupid as it sounds, probably the first thing i'd do if i couldn't find a bracket or something of that sort rattling around under there (exhaust bracket seems like a possible cause)...would be to take a look in that spare tire and make sure something hasn't come loose and started rattling around in there. Doubtful that's the issue, but never hurts to check the simplest things first. I'd take my own car. Literally never would cross my mind to rent a car...to drive somewhere, when i have access to my own car. What's the point of even owning a car, if you can't/don't want to drive it places? Especially paying a bunch more for everything, only to get a crappier car with probably bad tires and minimally maintained, as well as thoroughly uninspiring to drive on the highway. Though i think i come from a place where distances are pretty skewed. 200km isn't anything resembling a "road trip"...that's like, an afternoon day trip. 800km round trip is basically the nearest big city, or something where i might drive that in the morning...hike up and down, or ski up and down a small mountain...then return home within the day.
  7. Front Office and Coaching Staff News

    The idea that the 2020 OC could become a HC fairly early in 2020 is interesting i guess. It'd be an opportunity for a failed HC to show that they can do something in the role. But if Marrone is turfed mid-season 2020...that probably means the rest of the staff is on the way to a housecleaning. Which means that new GM is going to send that interim HC packing as well. So unless something miraculous happens...it really is just a one-year gig. Which is very much not attractive to any top candidates i'd think.
  8. NFL Draft: What do we need NOW and LATER

    I mean, i don't think that's an unfair take. It's just not as valuable a position, and more than that even...it has a tendency to be a slower/later developing position. Where top NTs often seem to come into their own after a while in a Pro system, where the early stars often seem to fade. I wouldn't be too excited about Brown that high in the draft. Even if he's an absolute stud NT with some 3T versatility...it's kinda uninspiring. I just see a guy with some really impressive athletic traits, but far too often on the wrong side of blocks in college if he's going to be that massive defensive NT anchor. Like...there's obviously potential there, but is he going to be Fletcher Cox? I don't necessarily see it. The tools are there, but i don't see the same awareness and savvy. I'd rather just spend the pick on a more premium position. Doesn't seem like anything really worth getting all worked up about. Everyone knows the guy is fast. Running a 4.3 before he ever played a down of football is like...yeah, some guys have track speed. Especially unconfirmed. I'd doubt he runs that at the combine. But it doesn't really matter. Speed isn't a question with him. But whether he runs an official 4.3/4.4/4.5...does it honestly even make a lick of difference? He's fast. Doesn't make sense to covet or move a LBer up or down, or covet them more or less based on a tenth of a second to me...when he obviously plays far more than fast enough on the field.
  9. Jaguars fire OC John DeFlippo

    That's the point though. If they're terrible again next year...it has to be a complete top to bottom housecleaning. Which is why nobody of any real note is going to want to come near this Jaguars OC position with a 10 foot pole. Why would you sign on as a sought after candidate, to basically a 1-year deal, that might not even make it the full season? Coughlin sucks. Everyone gets it. But this is the disingenuous disgusting side of the whole thing. Coughlin is being made out as the scapegoat for literally everything that went wrong...in a catastrophically parochial sense. There were sooooooooooooooooooooooo many other disastrous aspects of this organization, a lot of them dating back well before Coughlin. But now for some reason, they've whipped fans around to pretend like Coughlin singlehandedly made every bad decision in Khan's tenure as owner basically. Now that he's gone, we can go back to being a ******* embarrassingly bad team for another half decade of "rebuilding" and let Caldwell and others get chance number 3...despite proving they don't know what they're doing.
  10. Jaguars fire OC John DeFlippo

    I don't really get this at all. Like even if it means we're going to do everything possible to jettison Foles, which is good...at the end of the day, everyone so impressed with what Minshew did, do you not see how some credit it that is due to John DeFilippo? Like...he's the OC who was working with Minshew to build that "found money" rookie season. His system worked for Minshew, and helped make him what he was. Also saw our centerpiece RB in Fournette look better, and saw good performance from some key receivers. What exactly did Flip do wrong? I can't really think of anything. He coached a **** offense to a mediocre season under a cloud of awful Coughlin bull****. That's a guy i'd have kept, if we're just rolling mostly status quo, and Minshew as our 2020 starting QB. Continuity is important for a young QB. Not Flips fault the OL sucked, lacked talent, and the defense was a disaster because they let important players go with no viable replacement.
  11. Seems weird that Taylor made it, considering he was mostly mediocre, occasionally poor...and sometimes kinda alright. But whatever. Josh Allen was an absolute beast rookie, and in most years...would've been DROTY.
  12. Jaguars fire OC John DeFlippo

    One thing i've learned over way too many years as a Jaguars fan... never rule out Jacksonville, when it comes to something stupid, bizarre, or downright incomprehensible.
  13. Panther's LB Luke Kuechly announces retirement

    Kinda crazy, but probably the right decision for him. He's made a ton of money, played as the best LBer in the highest level of football in the world. With the sort of head injuries he's had...just makes sense to get out before you've completely decimated the brain organ.
  14. Why did Americans lose interest in space?

    Probably because the Soviets stopped caring about it.
  15. What Are You Thinking About v.CC

    Wasn't he like...not even good enough to actually be a QB basically? Like Shoelace 2.0. But less dynamic? I mean, i agree on like a slab of beef. But probably don't take that approach with ground or tenderized meats maybe.
