I'm not planning on traveling for a while so I used the 25k points sitting in my account and got like $350.

Pretty sweet.

Dlew doesn't post about sports anymore. I think we've lost Chunkles forever to fighting against trump.

1. There are no sports anymore.
2. His Twitter feed is really something.

I remember when Chunkles just made awesome EMAW gifs.

Wasn’t sure which “ku is broke” thread was most appropriate

Don't worry.  They will make up all of this dough (and their projected $120 million shortfall next year) by doing a little digging in the couch cushions.  Move along.  (Classic reference, props to the originator whose name now slips my mind).

Pretty sure thats a beems line.

That's the only one I've ever been too and that ice cream place is gone. The only thing attached to the building is Hooters, there's a Phillips 66 next door.

That little strip mall has a rich history of some unique tenants that's for sure. That's the first Hooters I knew about, they had a chi chis I think, there was a laser tag place.

I drove to that hooters with my bro's the day I turned 16  :cool: :lol:

What if your venom guy is out of network  :curse:

If you raise your own bee's you'll never have to go out of network. Snake venom could be an issue.

This thread has reminded me that I have not eaten at Chartroose Caboose in years, gonna have to hit up the 435/metcalf location soon and get the super chief.

IIRC that location used to have a baseball card shop in the back/side along with an ice cream place?

UPDATE: So I mailed these in May 6. After mailing them, my HCP said they often needed to show that it was paid before I could get reimbursed, which I didn't have. So that was great.

I've been logging in every day this week to see if the claims had been processed. Of course they hadn't. So I called, and the guy said that I could actually send them electronically by logging in and sending it via the insurance's messaging system. He said he sent it while he was on the phone but it usually takes about 30 minutes to go through. This call had already taken over 15 minutes to get to that point so I let him go. I waited. And waited. No message in the little shitty messaging system. So I call this morning. "oh, you can't send them electronically, but you can send them via fax!" so let's see if I can send a fax online.

Good news, I just got an identical 12 page claim denial explaining I needed to have diagnostic codes on invoices which means they received my fax! This rejection only took 10 days to get to me! Progress! I can just hop across all the free fax services now (they have page limits) and get quicker service.

This sounds awful

What are some ways besides Medicare for all/single payer to fix our healthcare system? Seems like the answer is always KEEP IT HOW IT IS or MEDICARE FOR ALL but there has to be more options than that right?

(I say this as someone who consumes very little medical care and have no strong opinion either way)

I always knew that Ted would find true love, happy for the guy!

You should send him a card and sign all of our names on it so he knows how many people are rooting for him in this adventure called love.

the only reason I found that song was because my second favorite turnpike troubadours song was on the same playlist

 

What’s your favorite Turnpike song? 7 & 7 or Unrung?

Both good songs but my favorite is Bird hunters. 100% of the reason I got a pointer instead of a lab for bird hunting. It was dumb and now I have a little terrorist.

Pictures of the cow poop sprinkler system next please.
Update on this. It now feeds directly into the center pivot system. Asked my dad last night specifically to answer to this.

This sounds amazing, center pivot sprinkling cow poop slurry?!? I assume you cant water within X amount of days before harvest to let the cow poop dissipate?

Procrastination, I'm sure there will be some actual work involved in cleaning up afterwards.  Also less chance for the fire to get out of control maybe.

Are all of these old abandoned buildings on the SD Ranch? It's an impressive collection if so.

I asked my dad what he was going to do with the old barns that are falling down at the cat ranch and his reply was "Wait for it to fall down then set it on fire"

I also keep dreaming about going to Vegas when the Chiefs are playing there in November but know that its just a pipe dream.  :cry:

I'm going in October but I've written off NFL attendance this year. Love to be wrong.

Going to gamble? Craps and BJ are my games but I cant imagine they will allow people 12 people at a craps table all touching the same dice and I dont think i would feel comfortable.

seriously there are few things more satisfying then having a little oil spill and taking an empty can* of the white stuff and shaking it over the oil and then sweeping it up and having it mostly clean with maybe a tiny bit of stain.

*back when I was a kid my grandpa smoked a pipe so we had empty Sir Walter Raleigh tobacco cans to put nuts and bolts in and pour out the oil sopping up stuff. seriously we had like a million of these cans and then my grandpa had heart surgery when he was like 75 or 80 and just quit cold turkey and now he's kickin' in his 90's



When my brother changed the oil on the riding lawnmower and golf cart he asked my dad what to do with the oil and my dad was just like "Drain it on the gravel or whatever"  :Wha:

He ended up catching it in a cat food pan and throwing it on top of trash in the incinerator so I guess we were being environmentally responsible?
I mean we definitely collected all the used oil into a barrel that I'm assuming for taken somewhere responsibly but also we dumped the pure trash that wouldn't burn next to a creek that eventually found its way to the Mississippi River and Gulf of Mexico

We actually recycle like a mofo out on the cat ranch only because glass/aluminum/tin cans dont burn all the way. Colby has a free recycling center in town where you just drive up and dump your stuff in the correct dumpster.

It was surprisingly busy the couple of times I dropped stuff off there.

F yeah, my 2 months of farm quarantine and wikipedia'n random animals that live in western ks paid off!

are you guys taking pics of like your secondary shops or what because my god burn some trash and get a broom

These were taken when I first got out there and I probably filled up the incinerator 3/4 times with empty boxes or egg cartons/junk but it's still disgusting.

I wanted to completely reorganize everything while I was out there but my dad wouldn't let me because he is waiting until next year when my uncle's lease is up and he moves all of "his" tools out.

Whatever dad, i'll just go haul some more tree limbs out of the windbreak and you can keep your junkyard garage/workshop.

Behind the electric scooters and beehives is the other part of the work bench area that is has 3 rows of drawers that pull out with nuts/bolts/washers all lined up in the same sizes.

I had to find a new nut/bolt combo for the weed whip one time but that stuff was all combine size.

Ended up finding a harbor freight set that was unopened that worked just fine.


24
Sure you have like 8 old fridges but do you have a giant farmer version of a lazy susan filled with all sorts of nuts/bolts/junk/tools?
