Yeah Ebert

He's really the only critic I read. Always on point, never excessive hyperbole. Very sad day.

Confirmed root for Reds and Bengals. What a joy there. Pacers/Grizzlies too far away though. Basically end up rooting for the team with the best former UK player.

I exaggerated obviously with "seeer" but I hear plenty of people say "sear-up" (pronounced like sear meat) and it bother me

what do you think about people like suzzer from kc who root for ku, kstate and mu depending on who is good at the moment

Anyone ever been to Lake Tahoe in the summer? Looking into a trip there with college friends in August. What is the best location to rent a house given our main priorities will be drinking in and around water and going out to bars with younger crowds? Trying to get a house to sleep 10-15 on the water just not sure what area.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog & Reading is FUNdamental

Anyone ever open that online dating thread in OOT? I'm mostly just interested in reading about people tripping on their dicks or unwittingly meeting up with dirigibles on a first date, but I'm afraid it's just a bunch of dudes trying to be helpful.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog & Reading is FUNdamental

It's pretty boring. Pretty much just an endless series of first dates followed by them or their date ignoring further texts. I keep reading it hoping for some amusing stories, but it's pretty rare, you probably need to read women's websites to find the true stalker freaks

I am annoyed by Trebek always pretending to know every answer.

Nothing like putting $400 on black when you walk in and having it come up green
