Re: Sporting Events FAQ, Liveblog, & Music Hot Takes

Has anyone done a Calcutta-style bracket pool? What about for NFL season? Any anecdotes?

Re: Sporting Events FAQ, Liveblog, & Music Hot Takes

Is it worth getting a tablet or iPad? I am pondering the idea of getting one but hardly use my computer much which is about 8 years old. Still going strong tho. Use my phone just about for everything. I wouldn't mind having one but not sure how much mileage I would put on it

Just get a bigger phone if you don't have one of the big ones already

I have one of those Fire tablets that I sometimes use to watch Netflix or HBOGO when I BM. Want to borrow it?

Re: Sporting Events FAQ, Liveblog, & Music Hot Takes

I bought a samsung tablet maybe 3 years ago.

I used it maybe 10 times and mostly to use the kindle app, and haven't used it in over a year.

From work I've gathered that a lot of olds like iPads, and they're great to have younger kids play games on/movies.

The simplistic ends of the spectrum basically.

this is 100% of my tablet use.

bus - if you get a tablet I would highly recommend an NVIDIA Sheild K1. $200, 8" screen, made for gaming so the graphics processor and screen are legit. And most important of all, it's not an lolapple product.

Re: Sporting Events FAQ, Liveblog, & Music Hot Takes

I don't game and try not to use phone too much in bed so doesn't sound like I'll have much use for it. Increasing the size of my actual phone isn't a bad idea

Also is there a single banger on drakes new album? If so I don't know what it is

Galaxy S8 is coming out so S7 Edge just had a price drop. I just got one last week and couldn't be happier with it.

One of my ex's had beef curtains. I'm pretty sure that's human meat.

*Assumed to be a good, but not perfect cut prepared in the preferred manner by a good, but not Michelin quality chef.

**The proper ranking for types of barbecue is as follows: Texas>>Memphis>Kansas City>>>Carolina. All barbecue should be served wet and with hot sauce.

***Raw Oysters are terrible and should never be consumed.

Mahi Mahi 2 is why the committee ignores kenpom.

Limiting human meat to one gender is sexist and a culinary disaster

The fish rankings alone are utterly brutal. Can't even compute the rest of the output. The Toonces algo needs maintenance. Someone start an ATF thread.
