    Chad's first football game since 8th grade. He will be fine. Different sports, different kids. Not even a fair comparison.

    rjs4470 replied to a thread Stolen Cars in BGP Break Room
    One other thing to consider is theft is often a crime of opportunity. There are simply more older cars, and those older cars usually have less sophisticated anti theft systems, if any at all. If you need a car quick, are you taking the brand new luxury car with tracking devices, immobilizers etc, or an older car with no real protection other than the lock?? With the average age of the car on the road around 11 years, older car are simply...

    That's not what I'm saying. Pippen was great. I just don't buy that he's right behind Michael on the greatness scale. Great player? Yes. Top 5 in the decade?? No.

    I completely agree. Never bought into the "greatness" of Pippen.

    Again, he's extremely popular. He probably has more fans, followers and supporters than any other below average pro QB, and below average single A baseball player. And that group of fans not only ignore his lack of ability but get upset should anyone point it out.

    Yep. The two new series I found this year I've like have been Ozark and Billions. My wife and I actually started rewatching Sons of Anarchy a couple weeks ago, and we are about halfway through the series. Didn't realize how much I'd missed or forgotten. And lots of scenes that have bigger impact that didn't mean much at the time, that are pretty big now that I know how everything shakes out at the end. Season Three (the one in Ireland) was...

    Maybe I'll take longer than 2 1/2 days to watch season 2. Very few shows I get excited about and this is one of them.

    Big difference between ridicule and saying the guy isn't a great baseball player or QB. It's probably more common to see people professing his greatness that simply doesn't exist.

    I haven't heard anyone here say they don't like him. I don't really no anyone that can't stand the guy. He still sells football jerseys and he's been out of the league for 3 years, and fills minor baseball stadiums despite the fact that he's not a great player. He might the most popular, most liked athlete of his generation.

    Completely agree. It's a great gig if you can get it. I only point that out to folks who still believe that Tebow keeps getting treated unfairly because of his beliefs.

    Doesn't matter who your kicker is. Kickers, like defenses, are completely random in scoring. And the difference between a top kicker and lower ranked kicker over the course of a season isn't very much.

    Don't know. Remember too, that Tebow never played ball above High School. Which makes what he's accomplished so far even tougher. Another question to ask, is how many athletes would get the same chance to try that Tebow did?

    I hadn't know either until I saw Robert Hazard for the 1st time in the late 80'/early 90's while I was in college. He introduced the song as a "pretty big hit" that they wrote and recorded in 1979. When they started playing "Girls Just Wanna Have fun" my friends and I looked at each in shock.

    Anyone aware that Cyndi Lauper's "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" wasn't originally written or recorded by her?? The song was originally done by Robert Hazard and the Hero's, who was one of the most popular local Philly bands in the 80's, and had a couple minor hits "Escalator of Life" and "Change Reaction" that got a lot of airplay on MTV.

    I would think Rosemary Clooney would be on the list. Only one of the Everly Brothers (Don) was born in KY, so I say they don't qualify. Crystal Gayle maybe???

    Missed driving through the Tornado that ripped through Blue Ash by a couple minutes. Got caught in a rip current at Rehoboth Beach when I was 19, spent what seemed like an eternity underwater completely under the control of the ocean, and then just got spit out of it and into calm water. I love the beach but rarely go into the ocean now, and never when it's rough. Once while pitching, had a line drive hit back at me that hit the bill of...

    I don't use it much, but recently got a $20 Uber voucher for $10. I used to work in the Daily Deal space, so I'm really familiar with how everything works. When I worked in the space, I bought lots of daily deals, and rarely had problems. And most problems are merchant related.

    rjs4470 replied to a thread Tipping Policy in BGP Break Room
    Yes and no. In a servers case, he/she is almost totally dependent on tips based on interactions with different customers, of different needs, on a minute by minute basis. And servers often get needlessly stiffed for no good reason other than the customer is a jerk or is having a bad day themselves. No one is perfect. I've made mistakes in my job, but I don't get docked pay. You are right in the sense that if I don't perform, there are...

    rjs4470 replied to a thread Groupon in BGP Break Room
    Groupon is legit and was often (and still can be)a great deal for customers. They are the only one left of the Daily Deal sites (Living Social and Dealchicken were the other big two in the space). However, the industry died simply because it was a bad deal for the merchants. Pre-selling goods/services at 40-50% off and splitting the income with the Groupon (or whoever the deal site was) generated a lot of traffic, but often cost merchants big...

    Shouldn't need to call. Groupon goods returns can be initiated through the website (with exceptions--like if it was bought through a third party site, is a final sale item, or is over 14 days) Not sure if you have seen this, but here's a link the walks you through the return process. It's pretty simple and shouldn't require any picture or anything out of the ordinary. I've done this before and it worked exactly like the video describes. ...

    I can understand why you didn't tip well in that situation. But not tipping well, probably cost the busboy (that did a good job) a little, as they usually get a percentage of the servers tips.

    Not quite. I said . I do not believe it is an unskilled position. Every job, no matter how menial we think it may be requires some sort of skill in order to be able to do it. If anything, the fact that a server could come home with less than minimum wage after a shift, while being required to serve all customers various, differing needs, and serve them efficiently and with a smile, no matter what, I'd say servers are often underpaid.

    I have a hard time being super critical and using withholding my tip for somebody who is expected to do a song and dance to try make me happy while dealing with lousy managers, co-workers and other customers who are either mean, borderline sexually harassing them, or just exceptionally needy, and rowdy kids who throw food and spill every other drink they get. Serving is a thankless job, one that I could certainly never do, and one where they...

    It's easy to label Tiger as druggie or tool (and certainly he wasn't always the nicest guy during his prime). But again, it seems to me like this guy is suffering from pain. 4 back surgeries (which doesn't seem to be offering any relief), and knee surgeries which have pretty robbed him of his career, endorsements, and perhaps the ability to even live a normal life, it's easy to see how he could end up where he's currently at. All the money in...
