Re: Notable 2019 Summer TV premieres

Re: Friend's boss just passed away

The guy's clients are in a bit of lurch too.

Hopefully, as an attorney, he set up some kind of plan for his demise, either a will or trust, and, again hopefully, it sets up some kind of plan for...

Re: Login security questions that are way too personal

You don't actually answer security questions honestly, do you? You are supposed to lie and write the lies down in a secret file.
If you give true answers, someone who really knows you could break...

re: Felicity Huffman (and dozens of others) arrested/charged with fraud - College Admissions

They perhaps could but choose not to. It's not always a good time to cash out an investment, it may expose you to big capital-gains taxes, etc. Throwing a quick mortgage on the house may be a more...

re: Felicity Huffman (and dozens of others) arrested/charged with fraud - College Admissions

There is a difference, these folks are paying "top dollar," way more than normal tuition.

In Michigan, we allow schools to designate as "schools of choice." They can then accept out of district...

re: Felicity Huffman (and dozens of others) arrested/charged with fraud - College Admissions

As others have noted, it was admission fraud by the coach, these students would never actually join the team.

However, I also tried crew. In an eight, you are 1/8 the "horsepower of the boat, and...

Re: RIP classicman

Sad news, indeed, although he and I were in opposite corners on many political threads. I've missed his posts.

Re: Tonight: Super Blood Wolf Moon

Clear here but it will be -4 F by midnight, with windchill around -15 or -20 F. Pretty rough moon watching except from a window.

Re: Timeless -- Series Finale -- "The Miracle of Christmas, Part I & II" -- 12/20/18

I think that was only a limitation of the "lifeboat," not the original mainship or the updated 2023 timeship.

Re: "No Problem" vs "You're welcome" are they the same?

I thin it is the customary and idiomatic response in some languages. In Portuguese, it is "de nada," literally for nothing. In English, it might be better translated as "it was nothing," but yes...

Re: Salvation (CBS) -- Series Thread

The plot twists and characters have been so bizarre that I've been rooting for the asteroid. Now the damn asteroid is the plot twist.

Re: Slip-on bedroom slippers that last?

Maybe I remember name wrong, they have several different models. The ones I like best are the soft soled model in buffalo, whatever name they assign. I don't have my Bean's catalog handy.

Re: Slip-on bedroom slippers that last?

Another vote for wicked good moccasins. The sole is two layers of the same soft leather as the uppers, so lots of flex. They are durable indoors, but outdoor pavement or wetness chews them up...

Re: Full Frontal with Samantha Bee (TBS) -- Series Discussion Thread

Well, selected POTUSes and family. Had she said it about Chelsea Clinton or the Obama daughters you would have never seen her again on TV. But conservatives and Trump are fair game. Full Hypocrisy.
