what started as a “hey can you put up some storage hook thingies in my shed” ended up as replacing about 14’ of completely rotted out sill plate with jackshit for tools on hand except for an old sawzall with a shitty blade, an impact driver and the jack from my car
Please tell me that lumber is not what you used for the new sill plate.

It's too late, now. We're pot committed. Phase 1 (2/3 of a stadium) will be done. The stuff we pilfered KSU tax dollars for might not, at least not for quite a while, if ever. Anyway, thanks guys!

Will it though? I ask because according to the article linked, KU will have to take out an additional $115 million in debt to complete phase 1. Now, that's not a complete surprise as everyone outside the crimson and blue clouds has been talking about how this project was behind schedule and over budget for a while now. However, the next question I have is, aren't those tax dollars in discussion contingent on the whole Gateway project being built? I mean, it's one thing to take that tax dollars, say it's going to be used for the project, and then muddy the waters between the stadium and the conference center/hotel/restaurants. It's another to take the tax dollars, use it all for the stadium, and not even build the Gateway project at all. Wouldn't that constitute fraud?

I'm asking seriously here because I truly don't know how these things work.

Obligatory I'm not that kind of lawyer, but when KU fans tease y'all about this, they're gaslighting you. They're federal funds, me boys.
Sales Tax and Revenue (STAR) Bonds are a financing tool that allows Kansas municipalities to issue bonds to finance the development of major commercial, entertainment and tourism projects. The bonds are paid off through the sales tax revenue generated by the development.
There is gaslighting on both sides.  It's not really state tax revenue (except the portion from the development, which would not exist if not for the bonds) and it's only from the patrons of the development, which are not KSU fans (except for every other year when we show up to wax that ass).

What is this final stanza to this poem about?

I have seen them riding seaward on the waves
Combing the white hair of the waves blown back
When the wind blows the water white and black.
We have lingered in the chambers of the sea
By sea-girls wreathed with seaweed red and brown
Till human voices wake us, and we drown.
He is dreaming and is woken up to real life and it sucks.

My 2000 Toyota Tundra is still going strong. Now with 76,000 miles.
Have you considered driving it at some point?

I was going to suggest you get rid of it and just put an inflatable replica in your driveway.

Go to the World Cup if you can because cricket is weird and the national team is apparently good  :horrorsurprise:
I think the US winning was termed the greatest upset in the history of Cricket so I am not sure how good we are.  But definitely go to the World Cup.

Also, I went down a rabbit hole on X about cricket players vs. baseball players.  Cricket fans are convinced that cricket players are superior because they don't wear a glove. 

I think we all know that baseball players are superior because they are better athletes in every way.  Check out how this baseball player adjusts his game on the fly and absolutely rakes in 20 pitches, or bowls, or whatever, while cricket guy is complete ass at baseball.

I guess the question is do I start new things or go all in on what I have already.
Both your current hobbies and the new prospects seem kind of boring and lame, so I guess you do you boo.

I'm literally moving that weekend but if the cats make the CWS I might just move stuff in the morning and fly up to Omaha to watch us play  :surprised:
Where is Steve Dave in all this?  It is only right that he open his home to all the gE'rs making the trip.

we going to talk about Baby Reindeer? because holy rough ridin' crap
that was hard to watch
yeah i didn't have fun with that.  by the time i wanted to get off the ride (that episode), I felt like i was already in too deep and had to see it through.  no fun though.

I am at the epi where she shows up as he is walking home by the canal and pins him against the wall.  Feels super creepy.  Sounds like it's not worth going on.
It gets considerably worse.

I’m out.
I quit as well.  I found myself hoping that every character would get murdered to put them and myself out of our collective misery.

Here’s a great example:

Yep, you wouldn't be able to get one fast enough if that was sold in the US. It's been obvious for a while that the big auto companies and dealers are delaying EV adoption as long as they can. That's why every EV that comes out looks like a shitty lego car instead of a normal looking car. Elon is a moron for lots of reasons but building the stupid cyber truck instead of something like this is up there for all time dumbass ideas.
That thing has a lower towing capacity than a Nissan Pathfinder.

After 52 years of life, I still have never had a cup of coffee.

Give me hot soup, not a hot drink. Plus, it tastes like sh*t.

As for gourmet coffee, to me that's akin to wearing a designer mask.

i suppose by that logic i too, must confess i've never had a cup of coffee, since i've never managed to get the coffee-containing vessel bone dry before discarding.

how could he possibly know it tastes like sh*t?
If only there was some way to taste coffee without consuming an entire cup.
Lol, shambles.

Of those ~40% who win their cases I’m curious to know what percentage of them were able to find some sort of housing in the interim and how many were just straight up out on their ass homeless
What are you talking about?  They live there until the case is decided.

This half is a bit of an indictment against our coaching staff. They keep trying to force the ball into players who aren't open. No adjustments

That sums up Mittie's entire career... he will not have a better team than this year and we couldn't even make it to the 2nd weekend.
Deb Patterson 2.0. Why didn't Maupin see more minutes?
Not an x's and o's expert but I think she would have been a liability on defense against their bigs.
She absolutely was.

dead and covered in flies. gross.

that's what I see.  :cry:
you guys aren't even trying.
that is a tasty bit of fish that Harvey brought the nest for Ellie and Baby Eagle to eat.
I just saw live birdage.

You guys!!!!

A) I don't like pearl jam so disclaimer
B) Post made peal jam sound even shittier WTF
Full agreement on both these points.  WTF

Speaking of NIL, a story I heard through someone who may be connected enough to know the guy who heads up the KU NIL cooperative; 
There was a meeting with all the KU head coaches, so Leipold, WBB, BSB are all around the table - Self comes in late and immediately points at each in turn and says "I want your rough ridin' money and I want your rough ridin' money..." and "It's all going to the basketball team".  I fully believe that Self and ethics are acquainted only through coincidence, but being that much of a dickhead is a stretch. 

On second thought, I believe it and he's a total prick.

Saltburn - hell yeah
On the fence with Saltburn.  One thing I am not on the fence about is there was entirely too much dong at the end.

I'm pretty apathetic about it (because I expected it), but I'm mostly just happy for you guys.

I believe you are happy for us, but I don't believe that you expected it after seeing our last few games.

I wrote down my prediction on this very blog. It's documented.
Hedging and expecting are not the same thing.

Sort yourself out.

Thanks, guys. I will sit back and contribute nothing to this project while we take that money from you without your informed consent. Thanks for taking it in stride.  :Carl:
Not the way STAR Bonds work, but go off King I suppose.

Wrestlers on Netflix is pretty fun if you like white trash reality
I hate both white trash and reality, so I will probably give this one a miss.
