Man - time flies.

My advice: have fun, but remember why you're there!  make sure to sit near the front in all of your classes - having a (PROFESSIONAL! lol) relationship with your teachers is huge and goes a long way. 

Besides that, get to know the dudes on your dorm floor.  Some of the best friends you'll make in your life. 

Oh yeah, and remember to wrap up ;)

Want to go to Mexico in 2020.  I've received a Chase Bonus in the past 48 months - but am single and ready to mingle with whatever other cards.  Is the Hilton Aspire the play?  It doesn't have to be a Hilton, but in the half hour of research, I've done, this looks like it might be the best bang for my buck.

Welcome to the board StarkvillIan. haha.

Looking forward to a great game!  Hopefully we'll see a more competitive game than last year.  Excited to get down and experience The Grove with the Mrs. and our two little hell-raisers!!

Funny guy right here. I hope the cowbells can drown out the Rock Chalk chants.
That's a KU thing.  We're K-State Wildcats*.  Must be that Mississippi State edukayshon showing! (just kidding ;) )

The Grove is an Ole Miss thing. And a very pretentious one at that.

My joke didn't land as well as I thought it would.
:confused:

I'm lost.  This smells like a KU troll.

Nothing directly. I think it's from months ago when I got into it with Stevesie. I discussed it down in the combo. Oh well, go cats!
Yep.

Memes aside - it cannot be overstated how insane it is that he had the time/materials/lack of oversight to kill himself.

I lived downtown when it was being constructed and started running and later Waldo. It was a huge pain in the ass and seemed nonsensical. Cincinnati is gross overall, so I don’t really have any thoughts about it.
So it was just the construction on Main that you found annoying about the streetcar?  Not trying to be a dick, I just don't know why anyone would have any ill-will towards the thing unless it's just a general grievance against public spending.

If you live in the taxing district, I can understand why you'd be pissed about it.  But I can't for the life me understand why else someone would be pissed.  Wacky, are you also pissed about Cincinnati's street car?

Do you live downtown, now, Dlew? Does your car not work? Coming from Illinois, was the 1.2 mile choo choo train everything you imagined it to be? Do you work at ‘stones firm now? Do any of the respected lawyers there actually ride it?
No I don't live downtown.  Yes my car works.  I didn't think much of the streetcar coming from Chicago.  I don't work at LSOC's firm.  N/A.

I just needed to rent a car for work and there's a Hertz at Crown Center and a Streetcar pickup outside my office building.  In that context, the Streetcar was incredibly convenient. 

It was also surprisingly crowded at 3:30 on a Wednesday afternoon.

Road the Streetcar from my office downtown to the crown center hertz yesterday and today.  Extremely convenient.  Canco that it was much much faster than walking fwiw.

ok so if you're basically banning any of my poisoning techniques, i would hypnotize the wolf into a docile state and then eliminate my adversary

step 1: calm environment

step 2: gentle touch

step 3: soothing sounds

step 4: holding position

step 5:  tonic state

https://www.rover.com/blog/how-to-hypnotize-a-dog/


That's a good plan.

can you have a friend use a drone to drop a vial of poison down into the arena after you have been searched by the guards and then poison the wolf?  i think i've watched a dateline about this technique once.
There is a mesh net above the surface to prevent this sort of thing.

I'd actually be more worried about the toenails when he does that frantic 4 legged running in place thing he'd do when I got my arms around his neck. 
Yeah the scratches would be a pain in the ass.  Mind over matter with that though.  Gotta focus on the task at hand.

this is pretty good on explaining beto's answer and why it resonated.

Had he answered this:
Quote
he should vanish. He can not stop being who he fundamentally is. He will not resign from office, repent, and enter seclusion. He does the bad things he does for reasons that are neither mysterious nor irrational, and so he can’t make things better any more than peddlers of junk food, narcotics, alcohol, and tobacco can improve the country’s physical health.
I would have found it a more cogent and reasonable response, rather than "wtf media, do your job."

The play is to put out your forearm, let the wolf bite that, then hug the wolf with your free arm, fall over on top of it.  At this point the wolf will let go of your arm and try to escape your weight.  Do not let him escape.  Instead, jam your fist down the wolf's mouth/throat.  Keep fist there.  Wait for wolf to sufficate.

You'll be extremely cut up, but you will defeat the wolf.

my answer is yes.  i would poison the wolf and wouldn't have to lay a hand on it.
You are thoroughly searched prior to entering the arena.  No poison allowed.

environmental conditions?  are we talking august in kansas weather?
environmental factors are not an impact. moderate temperature.  clear conditions.  natural grass surface.

23
well, you're wrong.  it was a great response.
In the context of the election i think you're right because I bet it moved his numbers.  I just think asking a presidential candidate what he thinks the sitting president should do is pretty reasonable.

you don't even get to cover your dong and balls? are there spectators? this could work against the human psyche.
No, naked.  Nobody is watching the arena.  You go in clothed but you must disrobe prior to the fight.  You can retrieve your clothes if you win before exiting.

i think the wolf wins 8 or 9 out of 10.

more if the human is barefoot.  maybe slightly less if the human has heavy boots on.
You are naked.
