  1. What Grinds Your Gears...

    I've moved 3 times in the last 4-5 months (granted, been living somewhat out of a suitcase, no furniture, etc). Once from west to east coast, and now I'm just hopping around place to place, waiting for my SO to find a job and move here. Bit different than moving your whole life, but at this point I need some sort of stability in my life, which will hopefully come at the beginning of October.
  2. Travel recommendations thread

    On the obvious side, I suppose not. But it is somewhat of a big area and it would be nice to know what to look for (i.e. this town, this park, etc). I'd think 4-5 hours of driving (4:30 to Adirondacks, 4:45 to Watkins Glen) is near the borderline of what I'd consider weekend trip drive-ability, so, in the ball park, but nothing farther.

    IMO, this scares me. You have initiated contact with someone and because they are acting friendly you are immediately seeing it as a possibility of romantic contact. I would strongly advise against screwing with your cousin's relationship and start seeing this as a friendship scenario ASAP. There are plenty of women out there, not taken by a close relative. This screams of a bad idea.

    The good usually smells stronger than the bad , FYI.
  5. Travel recommendations thread

    Any great long weekend road trip destinations from NYC? Avoiding the bigger cities (Washington, Philly) and the obvious destinations (Hamptons, Montauk, etc)? Looking for things like quaint towns or naturally beautiful areas.

  8. How do you folks make your iced tea in the summer?

    I haven't been doing iced tea this summer. I have in the past, and liked using rooibos steeped cold for ~12 hours. I made a move to cold brew this summer. Been going 1 cup to 1 litre of water (works out to approx. 1:4 ratio), coarse grind with any dark roast, let it sit in the fridge for ~24 hours and filter it through cheesecloth. Usually use lower quality beans for cold vs hot as I find it more forgiving but I've been thinking of splashing the cash, as it were. I find the markup on cold brew insane, and making it at home is incredibly easy. I'd also like to get into making kombucha for the same reason but I don't think I'm prepared to mess with fermentation. Semi-related, but one of the things I like about living in the States now is the availability of unsweetened tea, much prefer it over sweetened. Back home there is no unsweetened and sweetened, it's just called iced tea and it's all sweet (not to say you couldn't get unsweetened, but you'd have to search for it).

    Would prefer the same effect on the socks, with all-black gloves.
  10. Applications end next Friday, please get them in if you are interested!
  11. Tank in the news

    Yes, as do I. That comment specifically, and really most of that post, was not directed towards you. General gripes/venting, that was just the trigger.
  12. Tank in the news

    No... I did not and do not pay enough attention to play CCSLC crisis hotline. I was more insinuating the political ranting/raving than anything else, from cursory viewing the fanbase has a lean and style that would welcome the absurdity of it compared to what he would get here. So, yes, they would probably be more "kind" in that sense than the response he got here. It was an offhand comment... didn't know I would get cherry-picked from the whole kit and caboodle of his how-ever-many posts, but I guess that's what I'm doing too. If this is intended to be some sort of comparison, I find it ridiculous that it could even be insinuated that the general sentiment here, on these boards - i.e. no private PMs, no single quotations of support - towards Tank and his newfound fame is any iota of "kind, friendly, supportive," and all the other synonyms. The ones who do are outliers. You could jump to any page here, scroll a few posts down and find an insult or two. Not like it was any different outside of this thread when he was still here, it just wasn't so public. In fact, I don't think it's crazy to think that if the Barstool readership knew about the kind of responses we gave him, and especially if they saw this thread, they would think we are the one's who are offside. This is just my general gripe with this entire thread. It's like an ex the board can't get over: talking to his circle of friends how bad she was in bed, how crazy and psychotic she was, how she had really strange quirks. If the boards were a person they could use a restraining order.
  13. Tank in the news

    Really? I think the opposite would be true (if "crowd" means readership, not his employers).

    I agree, the n logo is much better. Make the first one a primary, remove the N, create a better fleur de lis shape, and I think it's a winner.
  15. Bumping this thread. Deadline for applications is June 16th.
