A rare case of libertarianism winning the day.

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but what's RRR?
It's a movie called RRR

Is it about Certified Mail?

I donated to a political campaign for the first time ever, and now it won't leave me alone. I already gave you money, bish.

So what you’re telling me is we have to spend hundreds of trillions of dollars per year, many time more than anyone else spends, to galavant around the globe, putting troops and ships and whatever everywhere, meddle politically and militarily on basically every continent, to keep the cost of big screen tvs down?

Interesting.

Hundreds of trillions?

I’ve often wondered what would happen if we just made our own iron dome, camped our fleet around our coasts and let the world do its thing elsewhere. No one would mess with the bull/eagle or they would get the horns/talons.

Isolationism is not a good thing. We've tried it before. You do realize that the U.S. Navy facilitates international commerce around the globe, right?

 Ut what do you think would happen?

Can you clarify the question?

This has been known to billiard and dart players for generations.

Also, certain message board posters.

Poker, slow pitch softball, backing babes, the list is basically endless.

Someone needs to produce and market a “slight booze buzz” pill

Like a Rohypnol Lite?

Though fanman may be gone, his shadow still looms large over gE. I'd set the o/u of how many times gE'ers have dropped a "kayos(?)" into a text message around 150 times.

I'm sure this will play out like all the geniuses on this board said about Russia and Ukraine.  Pretty sure dugout and SD said that war between those two would be fleeting. Ukraine would mop the floor with 'old' Russia.  I'd love to hear the analysis on this one.. :lol:

Are you somehow getting pleasure from this? Jesus rough ridin' Christ.

Do you need to play the game to enjoy it?

I've never played the game, and I am actively enjoying it. It's kind of like The Last of Us, but also a Western, but also the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt turned Rambo.

15
It's kind of a dystopian Western, which has me firmly clenched.

16
Meant to way *jazzed. (Or did I?!?)

17
LOADS of insider nods to game concepts.

I'm jizzed to check it out. What platform?

Love Buzz Aldrin's response to moon travel "truthers" in this clip:

Sheesh. I hope he won't be prosecuted for this. Sometimes people deserve a good ass kicking.

Been hitting the ball a lot better lately. Worried its just the beginning of the season weirdness where everything is going right and then crashes. Just my second year really playing so i'm def playing catch up, but I'm starting to figure out why crap is happening which I think is progress. :dunno: I still struggle with the either or issue. I'm either hitting the driver pretty well and not making great contact with the irons, or I'm doing ok with the irons and I may as well not even try using my driver. Right now i'm hitting the driver the best I ever have. Long irons are the struggle. I do ok with wedge through 7-8. First lesson of the year next week so I'm hoping to get a couple things ironed out with my hands. That is where I feel i'm off on the irons. Some days i'm very uncomfortable especially with my right hand and those are the days things go bad.

Have you tried playing 3w off the tee? I do that sometimes, because my driver game is complete crap.

I do sometimes, but honestly, if i'm hitting my 3w ok, i'm prob hitting my driver ok. Again, its really an either or issue with my swing/hand positions. I just got back from the range a bit ago and I was nailing the driver, but just not making good contact with any irons outside of my wedge. I grabbed my 3w and even hit that really well off the freaking mat, which rarely happens.  I've sort of figured a couple things out that have helped me a bit, but i'm really curious as to what my guy says next week. He's pretty good with, "yeah, that's a completely mumped way of doing that, but, it seems to be working for you so lets run with it".

I have this Ping driver that I've just never been able to hit, outside of a few lucky swings. I think a fitting might help, and I happen to live right above a club fitting shop (but don't want to spend the bread). My 3w game, however, is on point. Same with wedges and irons (understanding that I'm, at best, a mediocre golfer). Have you ever had a club fitting?

What's the last city to win a Super Bowl and World Series in the same year?

My blind guess would be Boston (I'm counting the Patriots as Boston).

If you haven't seen it, it's a great documentary that I highly recommend.

If that would've had more spelling and grammatical errors I would've thought fanning wrote it.

"dewshy" immediately put me into wackycollie08 mode  :D

Knew from the 2nd paragraph it most definitely wasn't wackycult08

We're a rule based society. The society works if most everybody follows the rules. I feel like there are a lot of rule breakers now and the ones following rules are the suckers. They pay higher insurance and retail prices because of all the chaos rule breakers get away with.

Literally lol'ing. Thanks for the treat.

oof guys i need to culpa my mea...just yesterday learned a (new to me) acronym and i was so excited to run to this blog and tell everyone, but i'm not a total dummy, and i typed it into the ol' search bar first. Turns out, there was a blogger on this very webbed site using this acro as a username back around 2010. So. just learning an acronym that's been around for no less than 14 years. I still intend to dust it off and get a ton of mileage out of it. that acronym? DILLIGAF.

Since its been around for so long i won't type out what it stands for, but i am (unashamedly) enjoying the crap out of it rn. (2024)

Do I look like I give a eff?

D2 also mentioned that his new company is the type to acquire other companies. Which seems true because they have all of these random ass locations on their website. So, another funny part of the call was him mentioning the possibility of the new company acquiring the old company. He said, "and if that happens, it's like, 'COO, you're gone. CFO, gone. Don't need you any more.'" I was thinking to myself, "oh, you've been thinking about this for a while." 100% chance that he suggests this idea to the new company.
for this to come full circle, i hope you work for him and his new company acquires one of the other companies that employ you.  everyone will be asking you if you’ve met the other chum1 yet.   you’ll have to join team meetings with two different laptops and only be able to turn on one camera.  this will turn into a movie.

Incredible! In the eye of your mind, who do you see playing the role of chum1? Feel free to cast the other principle characters, as well. I don't want to steal your chum1 thunder, but I'm thinking Matthew Lillard as D2.
