    Pot meet Kettle

    If it was a male prof. he would have been fired immediately upon being accused, they wouldn’t have even waited until the investigation was complete. #metoo would probably demand that the dean of the school be fired too because obviously they must have known about it and let it happen.

    Movie thread

    Go back to my comment about “Rampage” when I said games/video games make horrible movies...”Battleship” was one of the tops on that list of crappy movies. Spoiler ahead in case you decide to actually finish it: The end was the best part, when they get the old guys and fire up the USS Missouri.
  3. I thought it was pretty good. Since you haven’t watched the last couple seasons, I’ll just say that things got switched up quite a bit in this last season. I ended up watching GLOW too...mostly because I remember watching it when I was a kid. There’s also and actual GLOW documentary on Netflix too.

    Stolen Airplane in Seatle over the weekend

    It’s not like he snuck into the airport to steal it. He worked there and had access to the service area where the plane was sitting. it just says he was a “ground service worker”, but from some of the other articles I’ve read, that means he would direct planes and push them back from the gate. One of them said he actually used one of the tractors to turn the plane around. I don’t know how accurate flight simulator games are nowadays, but investigators were impressed that he could even get the thing going. Being a twin engine prop plane, I guess you have to coordinate the engines? On the other hand, when they were talking to him on the radio and there were simple things he didn’t know how to do.
  5. Finished OITNB this weekend. Bit of an interesting turn of events. So, is that supposed to be it or is it coming back for another season?

    Movie thread

    "Life of the Party"...only because it had just come out and I was stuck in the house this weekend because of the crappy weather. On a scale of 1-to-10 I would give this one a solid "tolerable". I made it through to the end, but I guess I'm one of those people who thinks Melissa McCarthey just not that funny. Also watched "A Quiet Place". I was about 15 minutes into it before I figured out how to turn the subtitles on, but I almost think it was better without them. You could get a pretty good idea of what they were saying without them and it made it more suspenseful that way.

    The Pentagon has FINALLY caught on!

    They weren’t as prevalent when I was in Afghanistan, but people used them, or other devices. I personally used an old Droid phone...obviously no cell signal, but the GPS worked and I could use it as a music player when I was running. I could hijack a WiFi signal at the prison to upload my runs to the Nike running website. Don’t see why it would be a huge deal...I was on a huge military base, not like the Taliban didn’t know we were there.

    The Automotive Thread

    Depending on how it’s done, sometimes I’d rather get rebuilt rather than new. If it’s actually been torn down and rebuilt by someone, then I would tend to think that it’ll be better than a tranny that is 1-of-50 put together by some guys on a production line somewhere.

    No kids at home last night so we watched "Deadpool 2" last night. I give it 2 severed thumbs up.

    The Pet Thread

    Wife and I are starting the low carb thing so I actually had thought about doing a small chicken coop in the backyard for the supply of fresh eggs, but having 3 giant buffoons in the house is a big concern.
  11. Have you ever checked out some of the "what they look like in real life" articles? I know they'll pop up on my FB once in a while. They really dress down some of them inmates for the show.

    The Pet Thread

    Guy had fish in it before. Put water conditioner in and under gravel filter was running for about a day before any fish went in. The "goldfish" or whatever crap fish they give out at fairs never made it long enough to try the aquarium. They were replaced with 3 tropical fish of some kind and 1 algae eater from Petsmart. Algae eater #2 is the one that just went tits up this morning.
  13. I've started watching the latest season of OITNB. Might as well have skipped the first episode all together, but after that it's getting a bit better. I'd say having nekid boobs helps, but they're not necessarily boobs you want to see.

    The Pet Thread

    WTF?!?! Why do our stupid fish keep dying? Couple weekends ago we went up to the fair/community picnic. The three boys each "won" a goldfish, i.e. stupid b!tch running the game decided to give them each a fish cause they each spend about 5 bucks. Next day I found an aquarium on CL that had all the stuff with it. Needless to say, the little disposable fair fish lasted about as long as they usually do so we went to Petsmart and got four replacements. Two of those already died and the third looks like it's on its way. They replaced the two dead ones, but now one of those was dead this morning. Had them test the water and the girl said it was good, but I doubt someone working a min. wage job at Petsmart has an Environmental Science degree.

    Movie thread

    Haven't seen it yet, but I will once it is out on disc/digital. Already heard rumblings that the scene in the credits kinda sets up the next Avengers movie.
