  1. Football and CTE

    I knew a girl in high school whose brother died playing h.s. football a couple years before I knew her. Yet all of her other older and younger brothers played football "in his memory" as if the memory of him dying totally escaped them. Then she got hurt in competitive gymnastics, and a few of them quit football because they figured the family was "cursed".
  2. Celebrate Yourself Here

    So on my birthday a couple days ago, my parents said they'll take me anywhere for a week for my 50th. I'm trying to decide if I want to go someplace I've been before, or someplace new. I have 6 months to decide.
  3. 2017 MLB Season

    I remember several years ago when Uncle Bud proposed a radical realignment where the AL was basically the western division and the NL was the eastern division or the other way around. The AL west would have been Seattle, Arizona, and the 5 California clubs. Or maybe it was the NL. It was shot down so fast I forgot the specifics of which league was where.
  4. The all encompassing Doctor Who thread

    I had to dig through years of Facebook posts, finally found the one where my cousin and I argued if there would be a female doctor. Took some doing and searching, but 4 years after that argument, I guess I finally won. I don't hold grudges well, do I?
  5. That logo looks familiar...

    This is for sports logos used for other purposes. This is a tv producer in Southern California and I think her shirt advertising her show is using a familiar, if old, logo...
  6. What Grinds Your Gears...

    And again, they were going off tonight. My cat is terrified (she doesn't like loud noises, but on the 4th I expect it and come home early from my friends fourth BBQ to comfort her) and I have work in the morning. I'm debating whether or not to call the cops or just refuse to pay my homeowner's association bill because they are obviously not enforcing their own rules.
  7. What Grinds Your Gears...

    They just said on the tv news that the upcoming solar eclipse was a once in a lifetime event. Does this mean I'm going to die before August 21, because I remember one in the NW in the spring of 1979 when I was 9 years old.
  8. Amelia Earhart

    It was thrown out eventually because of that (you can't sue for injuries in combat), but that didn't stop him from trying.
  9. 2017 NHL Offseason

    Aho is actually a popular surname in Finland, but Sebastian is not a common Finnish name, so it is quite surprising to see two of them. I have quite an uncommon name, so I was surprised when I got a call for smzimbabwe, and he said, you can't be smzimbabwe, you don't sound black.
  10. What Grinds Your Gears...

    I'm as patriotic as the next guy, but apparently, Independence Day is now Independence Week. People have been shooting off fireworks in my neighborhood since the 30th of June through last night, and I wouldn't be surprised if more go off tonight.
  11. Amelia Earhart

    Given today's litigious society, will her/his family get to sue the Japanese for compensation? I only ask because a friend of my grandfather's tried to sue the Japanese for the injuries he sustained during the battle of Iwo Jima.
  12. What Are You Listening To?

    I don't understand most of the lyrics, but I've been listening to this one over and over the last week or so...
  13. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    It's where I first saw him, and have always associated that jersey with him even though I have his Vancouver #16 jersey hanging in the closet right now...
  14. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    I see nothing wrong with this...
