This will only be funny to Marc, Adrian and myself.

Btw, I got kinda creeped out by searching for "foot massage" on youtube. It's a whole bunch of feet freaks. In fact I ran across the scene from youtube regarding foot massages and one guy gave it only one star because "I didn't see any feet :("

Fucking weirdos.

Phil on Monday, September 04, 2006 at 10:34 PM

when I said scene from "youtube" I obviously meant Pulp Fiction. I'm still a little weirded out by how many videos there are of the feet of the women from QVC.

Jay on Monday, September 04, 2006 at 10:59 PM

I'm guessing I missed something at trivia.

Brock on Tuesday, September 05, 2006 at 12:18 AM

So Wes, is it just yourself making the trek down to Bardstown?
Michelle did 35 miles today. I did 1.5 (to and from work). I'm saving my energy.

I think we should do the never ending pasta bowl on Friday to get some carbs in for the ride. Also, I'm fat, and it takes a lot of carbs to keep this wicked Peter Griffin belly going.

There's no wonder to it, he has already earned his starting spot

joe on Tuesday, September 05, 2006 at 8:05 AM

from cstv.com:

Bush also knows how to protect himself. After watching Brohm go down late last season with a serious knee injury, Bush, like many other potential professional athletes, took out an insurance policy this off-season just to be on the safe side.

"I could have got the top one for like $5 million. I got [one] for like two," Bush said. "I've never had any major injuries or knee problems, so that's why I got that."

adrian on Tuesday, September 05, 2006 at 8:22 AM

Bigworm on Tuesday, September 05, 2006 at 9:41 AM

Brock - I am now debating doing the ride, because supposedly it is suppose to rain on Sunday. Of course, weather guys can't predict a hard on in these parts so I will have to wait and see.

If I don't do that ride then I guess I will bother Joe (and maybe chris if he has slept) enough until they go riding.

Jay on Tuesday, September 05, 2006 at 9:55 AM

Bigworm on Tuesday, September 05, 2006 at 10:05 AM

Yeah that is why I didn't use my front brake at all. I was scared I'd land in the creek.

Brock on Tuesday, September 05, 2006 at 10:11 AM

Wes, you are telling me you won't ride because of rain? RAIN? But you'd rather do trail-riding? That somehow makes my head hurt

We are going down to Land between the lakes in two weeks if you want to do some REAL trail riding thats your place

I have no idea what the hell is wrong with my keyboard< its not letting me type periods or commas which is really annoying> maybe i should just go to work>

adrian on Tuesday, September 05, 2006 at 10:48 AM

Lets Go...Penn State...

NOtre Dame should have got beat by Georgia Tech. Tech got fucking robbed and the god damn refs will not call pass intererence on Samardija's faggott as. Calvin Johsnon looked like a top receiver.

So after Penn State beats NOtre Dame, they play a weak ass team then go into the Horseshoe and play ohio state. I have confidence Penn can beat Notre Dame (overrated in my opinion) but i don't think they have a shot against OSU.

Bigworm on Tuesday, September 05, 2006 at 10:49 AM

OSU should get banged up by the horns though...so that could be your saving grace.

joe on Tuesday, September 05, 2006 at 10:51 AM

Who is morelli? as the great colin cowherd says, "You give me morelli, I'll give you salami." The texas-OSU game will play a large part in the Penn State OSU game.

joe on Tuesday, September 05, 2006 at 2:00 PM

This dude at lunch mentioned the rusty trombone. This chick asked what it was, but in trying to be cool he actually didn't know what it was. So I had to explain the rusty trombone to the lunch table. I gave the houdini, jelly doughnut and Tony Danza as a homework assignment.

Also at lunch we discussed the economics of stripping. Is it better to be a mediocre chick at PT's or the hot chick at gold club? We tried to relate supply and demand to this.

Bigworm on Tuesday, September 05, 2006 at 2:15 PM

Wow.....way to bust his chops Joe.

Mediocre at PT's, definitely. And Jen, you now drink more beer than Phil since he has become amish. Phil, thanks for the clarification (Yes I am aware that amish people don't use ipod nikes. It was hyperbole.)

Jerome on Tuesday, September 05, 2006 at 2:20 PM

Jay ... the Amish use ipod nikes as long as they don't own them. In fact, I'm pretty sure an Amish dude wearing a pair passed me during my first Natty Sci fat guy race ... and some Amish women ... 3 Amish children ... 1 Amish Grandma ... and a dude that looked Amish but smelled like lamb curry vindaloo

Phil on Tuesday, September 05, 2006 at 2:21 PM

SOoooooooooooooooo, I was reading an article on the New York Times regarding the sexual cannibalism of some species and why they would let themselves be killed in order to get laid, and it included this gem: "Cannibalism provides males extra time to put a plug in a female’s sperm receptacle." That's hot.

Article in question: http://www.nytimes.com/2006/09/05/s...&ei=5087%0A

Since Tennessee put the smack down on Cal, they leapfrogged several positions in the pole to 11th. That puts 5 SEC teams in the top 12. Suprisingly Louisville didn't move up any with that spectacular win over the cats.

Courier Journal Crime Reports from today

This guy has some balls to make this crime report. I remember the good ole' days when your drug dealer used the triple beam.

100 block of Waverly Court. A man said that when he answered the door to his apartment about 9 p.m. Aug. 13, a man hit him in the head with a gun. Another man then held him down and choked him, and demanded "Where is it?" The second assailant took cash, marijuana, a gun, a cell phone and a digital scale.

It wasn't my best work, but I think I at least made it through without any major misspellings.

Phil on Wednesday, September 06, 2006 at 11:02 AM

ha, nope. That was just done within Firefox.

But here's my dirty secret: Firefox 2.0 has a built in spell checker...

Bigworm on Wednesday, September 06, 2006 at 11:04 AM

Ah....does it automatically check it like Mircrosoft Word or do you have to use the tools menu?

Phil on Wednesday, September 06, 2006 at 11:07 AM

Done automatically. It's not as good as Word's spell checking. For example, I might slaughter the world conscienceless but my spelling is so incredibly wrong that Firefox can't figure out the the word I was trying to spell. If I paste it into Word then it will sometimes get my back.

Here's a screenshot of it in action: http://www.lifehacker.com/software/...hots-186687.php

quick question, is it selling out if Sully Erna (the lead singer of Godsmack) was playing in the main event of the World Series of Poker? I love poker and everything, but isn't that kinda like Alice Cooper playing golf habitually?

joe on Wednesday, September 06, 2006 at 11:17 AM

It wasn't celebrity poker, so it isn't that bad. If it was the TV shows with all celebrities it is selling out.

Phil on Wednesday, September 06, 2006 at 11:21 AM

I'd assume that Godsmack plays a lot of poker on tour, so he probably wanted to see what he could do against the pros. So Sully didn't sell out. But I think you could argue that the WSOP sold out by letting anyone and everyone into the tournament...

Jay on Wednesday, September 06, 2006 at 11:23 AM

Phil, that was funny. And I agree, we need to keep impressionable young girls away from ciggarettes.

douglas on Wednesday, September 06, 2006 at 11:29 AM

the whole point of the WSOP is that anyone can play, that's always been the case since it started, it just became so popular the last few years that more people / celebrities have played

Phil on Wednesday, September 06, 2006 at 11:40 AM

what I meant by anyone and everyone in is that they used to require a $10,000 entry fee. Now just about anyone can win an online tournament and get in for free.

When I was traveling I watched a lot of the 2003 and 2004 poker tournaments. I'm not saying I'm a poker expert - I can't even tell you what hands beat what - but in 2003 & 2004 the majority of the players took their time and worked hands and pots. Now it's "all-in" in seemingly every hand. And a lot of that is I assume related to the fact that you aren't playing with your money so the trill of having that sportscenter "all-in" moment comes at a much cheaper cost than if you were playing with your money.

douglas on Wednesday, September 06, 2006 at 11:42 AM

the best poker tournaments to watch are the world poker tour and the professional poker tour, which are on the travel channel, mainly b/c those are all only pros and the play is much better, and yes, you're right about the "all-ins", but that's usually only towards the beginning of the tournament, as you get closer to the end and closer to the money, the play becomes much better than people taking dumb risks to get the chip lead.

Bigworm on Wednesday, September 06, 2006 at 1:04 PM

WSOP just understands by letting anyone and everyone in then they can increase the jackpot and go more mainstream.

douglas on Wednesday, September 06, 2006 at 1:22 PM

plus they make more money, they still have the 10k buy in, but there are a lot more online qualifiers that sponsor players

Wes, I broke the back tire on my bike

Bigworm on Thursday, September 07, 2006 at 8:43 AM

Joe - Did you do it by getting 3 feet of air?

Seriously, what happened?

joe on Thursday, September 07, 2006 at 8:46 AM

I lost one of the nuts.........on my back tire. And the tire is all bent out of shape. I'm assuming it was one of those times I got some wicked air.

Bigworm on Thursday, September 07, 2006 at 8:48 AM

Way to bust a nut Joe - only you can keep fucking that up (Sorry I got nothing).

Were you able to make it home?

I don't think tires are all that expensive. I know when I was looking at some slicks for my bike they were about 12-14 bucks apiece.

Try Dick's or Schellers....they can probably hook you up with the nut problem too.

joe on Thursday, September 07, 2006 at 8:51 AM

Chris kept pointing at me alnd laughing about losing a nut. The only time I had a rim on a bike more crooked was when I got a concussion riding my bike down a hill in the snow off a ramp. Note: when jumping don't land directly on your front tire and flip over the handle bars.

adrian on Thursday, September 07, 2006 at 8:59 AM

For the record, i was about ten feet from making it up the "hill" at waverly and i hit a fucking stump, lost all momentum and had to stop. I was pissed. After that i went on some other loops at waverly. Got lost at one point but i managed to find my way back...hence it is a loop.

Bigworm on Thursday, September 07, 2006 at 9:01 AM

Wow sounds like I missed a fun time yesterday.

So when do you plan on fixing your bike?

joe on Thursday, September 07, 2006 at 9:01 AM

Anybody that can make it up that hill at Waverly is a bastard.

joe on Thursday, September 07, 2006 at 9:02 AM

I'll try to fix it this weekend

Bigworm on Thursday, September 07, 2006 at 9:04 AM

So how long into your ride did this happen?

adrian on Thursday, September 07, 2006 at 9:08 AM

I have seen old dudes and chicks make it up that hill. It makes me want to stab them with a soldering iron.

We started and rode the golf course trail into the wilderness loop. I noticed it was riding crooked and slow about halfway through the loop. Towards the end of the loop I stopped and looked and noticed it was crooked as hell and I lost my nut.

Jay on Thursday, September 07, 2006 at 9:42 AM

I went to the emergency room at about 10:30 last night (when I went running, I had a sharp, shooting pain in my arm. My EKG looked "pristine", so the doctor figured I messed up a nerve by exercising too much. Imagine that, Big Jay exercising too much) Anyway, at about 11:30 a drunk guy stumbles in the emergency room, and apparently he had just been let out of jail. Some of his choice comments were-
-I need to file a report against the Lawrenceburg police department for slamming me into the ground and hurting my shoulder.
-Why would they do that, I wasn't doin' nothin'
-When asked if he was on any prescriptions, he answered "As many as I can get a hold of. Darvocet, Valium, Zoloft"
I can't really do the redneck voice justice, it was awkward, but awesome at the same time.

Damnit Jay ... don't run alone ... that's why I made sure Phil was around when I started. I knew he would at least consider calling 911 if I collapsed under my own weight. I'm glad you're okay though ... in the mean time:

My buddy Becky and I went for a walk yesterday afternoon and some dude stopped me to warn me about all the "undercover police officers that the metropolitan police department" had in the area. And that they probably had two guys just watching me.

I was more intrigued that the guy referred to them as the "metropolitan police department" than anything else.

Brock on Thursday, September 07, 2006 at 10:10 AM

Church, I'm planning to defend at the end of October.

Wow. Policemen stalking Phil. Now that's role reversal ;)

joe on Thursday, September 07, 2006 at 10:14 AM

any clue why they are in the area?

Phil on Thursday, September 07, 2006 at 10:21 AM

I think they were in the area because this guy was bat shit crazy. I forgot to mention that part of the story.

Jay on Thursday, September 07, 2006 at 10:29 AM

An EKG measures heart activity (chris would probably have a much better explanation). I'm not dying. Although after the past two weeks, I think I'm just going to start taking wednesdays off.

Just got back from Border's...you know what is a good magazine, Maxim en Espanol. I don't even have to act like I know how to read it.

Brock on Thursday, September 07, 2006 at 12:27 PM

Anywhere between 150 and 200 pages. I've got two first author publications and have already written a literature review. In science, its the work you do in the laboratory that earns the Ph.D., not the long dissertation at the end. This is simply a compilation of all the stuff I have already written over the past 5 years.

I basically just have to write up a discussion at the end.

Church on Thursday, September 07, 2006 at 12:51 PM

200 isn't bad. In education, we have a 100-150 page lit review for some reason.

Brock on Thursday, September 07, 2006 at 1:18 PM

Fun fun. I also had to spend 5 years banging my head against a lab wall, so I think it evens out.

Brock on Thursday, September 07, 2006 at 1:19 PM

Yeah I wanted to take the Irish, but I think Penn State is a lot better than GTech.

Bigworm on Thursday, September 07, 2006 at 3:49 PM

I don't think it is with the spread....but Icould be wrong. That would require me to look them up and inquire if it is spread or no spread.

The new Survivor is susposed to separte people by race. A promo for the show has a guy saying "when I heard about it I thought, what an advantage for the Latinos." An asian contestant says "maybe this will change stereotypes." And a white contestant says "I was shocked when I heard about it."

I can see the some of the members of some of the tribes creating chants for their "tribe" (which reflexes their race) but can't see the caucasians doing that. I mean "White power" or "Let's Go Whitey" might cause angry letters to written sent to CBS. I haven't ever watched more than 3 episodes of the show EVER. But wonder if it'll be like "Asians Rule!", "Chicano Fever!", and "Let's go team who just happens to be white, not that there is anything inferior about others races, they just teamed us up this way, it was done beyond our control!"

Phil on Thursday, September 07, 2006 at 9:10 PM

Phil called it. Carlos Mencia talked about Survivor. (I was too lazy to change the channel that quick). He said the show couldn't have "beaners" because they would just swim off the island. He then said forms of words that contained the root "beaner" 3472 times in the first five minutes of the show.

joe on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 9:33 AM

Hey Phil, I just called out a girl at work for putting a guy into friendville. This lead to the explanantion of friendville and all of its glory. They stumped me on one part of friendville so I am calling on the mayor for help. Once you enter friendville status, is there a way out of it? Can you technically retire your friendville status or put it on temporary hiatus? I said it was basically eternal damnation, but I wasn't positive. What is the word?

Jay on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 10:02 AM

I'm not phil, but I am pretty familiar with friendville (Phil and Marc will vouch for me). I don't think it is eternal. There are two exits from friendville. The easiest is "I no longer give a shit blvd" that takes you straight to not even caring about the person anymore. Then there is the rare "Let's give is a shot ave" that leads to an actual relationship. Although there are always armed sentries who's standing orders are shoot to kill, there have been exceptions of a guy going down that route.

Jay on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 10:04 AM

And I know a guy who is god king of friendville. He puts us all to shame. He is a friend of my mom's, and he has spent more than twenty years, doing all the things that put us in friendville, for a married woman. With absolutely no "Let's give it a try ave" out.

joe on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 10:11 AM

My thought was that the guy has no real control of friendville one he is in except the "fuck it I'm out." He can do things to try and stay out of friendville, but once in there isn't much to do

Phil on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 10:26 AM

Ok, there are two types of friendville being discussed here it seems. The first one, which I don't consider friendville, is simply girls being attention starved to the point that they know that a little "harmless" flirting will get them the attention they desperately need. But I don't really call that friendville, I call that "knowing an attention starved whore." Because in reality if you weren't there she would simply move on to the next person who would put up with whatever inane bullshit that spews from their mouth. There really is no friendship there, just one person hoping to get laid and another person using that knowledge to get attention. If the girl knew of a way to get that same attention from females or even a fire hydrant she'd take that approach, but because it is so easy to dangle the carrot of sex in front of guys to get their attention they take that route. Once again, I don't consider that friendville because I don't see that as a very friendly thing to do. If you find yourself in that position it is easy to get out of: stop hanging out with pathetic attention starved whores. You wouldn't want to date them anyways. Note: parlay the attention starved part into getting your bone smooched is an A+ move and highly recommended. Avoid sleeping with them because they probably have the clap.

Then there is the classic friendville. The one where, if things had been slightly different, you'd probably be dating. Say you met while one of the two members were in a relationship. You could get along famously and still be attracted to each other, but going from friendville to relationshipville (note: you move right to relationshipville from friendville, there is no dating) involves the perfect amount of drinking between both parties that said attraction can take place AND some sort of gay ass discussion about feelings. That's friendville.

Phil on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 10:29 AM

Also, if you ask a girl out and she says that she just wants to be friends, that doesn't mean you are in friendville, it means you are simply someone that they don't want to date. NOT friendville.

joe on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 10:35 AM

So they key is specifying between attention starved whore, just friends and friendville. I was basing friendville off of an episode of scrubs that had a running timer that was counting down his entry into friendville. They were saying that they met and there is a specific amount of time from where something happens in your relationship that if you don't make the right move you have entered status as no longer datable because you are too good of a friend.

Phil on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 10:38 AM

Exactly, there is a definite timer that both girls and guys need to follow. In fact, one girl that I dated told me that she was worried that if we hung out one more time without anything happening that she'd be in friendville, so she threw on a white skirt to ensure that friend++ activities ensued.

jen on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 10:43 AM

All of this is so enlightening. Really funny, sad and true. You guys are wise beyond your years.

joe on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 10:52 AM

Guy at work just threw out the word "plutonic", "feelings" and "shoulder to cry on" for friendville.

Jay on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 10:58 AM

Phil, I think you and I were saying the same thing. And Joe, your co-worker seems to know what's up.

joe on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 10:59 AM

new twist brought up in the office: Friend with benefits. If you were a friend with benefits and the benefits are lost can you be just friends?

Phil on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 11:06 AM

Hmmm, just being a shoulder to cry on doesn't make it friendville. That could easily be "knowing an attention starved whore (known from this point forward as an ASW)." Plutonic and feelings can also fall into the unrequited love category too. Not friendville.

And just because a girl says "you are too good of a friend" doesn't make it friendville either - in fact one could argue that is the furthest one could get from friendville because at that point at least you know where you stand. That's just a polite way to say "I don't want to date you" and is NOT open for interpretation.

BUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUT for practical purposes, saying "welcome to friendville, population: YOU" is a lot more fun that arguing about semantics. Perhaps different levels of friendville should be established...This will be my goal for the afternoon.

Btw, Dom from work just went to get some BBQ for lunch and I asked for a pulled chicken sandwich, white meat only. Is that a bizarre request? Every decent BBQ place I've been to does that, but he seems to think they mix the meat together. WTF?

douglas on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 11:18 AM

as an expert on friends with benefits, i feel i must enter this discussion topic. friends with benefits are wonderful friends indeed, and it is important to treat them like friends at all times, yet nothing more. if you have a friend with benefits that you have absolutely no desire to proceed into relationshipville with, then it is important you not do anything "relationshippy" with them, i.e. buying them gifts, talking sweet to them, meeting their parents, BUYING THEM DVDs FOR CHRISTMAS. (Joe knows what i'm talking about). The vast majority of females who enter friends with benefits relationships with men can quickly change their feelings from being nothing more than sexual to fully emotional with the drop of a dime, trust me on this. If you show any interest in actually pursuing a relationship with said friend with benefits, yet you really do not want to, you are in trouble, and you will lose your benefits as well as a friendship, and then it's just nothing more than an awkward drunk encounter at a bar, which can be fun sometimes too, especially if she's with a new BF, but I digress. However, there is a rare breed of the female species out there that is entirely consumed with nothing more than the physical act of spreading her legs, and this is a wonderful species indeed. This is the type of woman where you can flirt and be playful with, have a great time, and great sex, and then go home and sleep by yourself, knowing that both of you consider nothing more from the other. The ultimate jackpot is when you can find one of these women who is currently in another relationship with someone else, and hence you become the 'guy on the side.' This is the golden ticket indeed fellas. Now she is forced to keep your "relationship" secret so she doesn't look like a whore, and you can see her out and be friendly with her and have fun, take her home knowing she should be with someone else, and then the playful activities are that much more fun indeed.

douglas on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 11:22 AM

also, if you have been in friendville for too long, there is a way out, and the best way to do this is to take the "i don't give a shit" approach previously mentioned, and basically start to necessarily blow your friend off, but stop hanging out with her all the time, and when she needs a shoulder to cry on, tell her you have a date with someone else. Or you could start telling her stories about picking up or hitting on other chicks at bars/parties, and she'll slowly start to get jealous. If she doesn't, of course, then you're fucked, but it is pretty much the only way out of friendville. Your only hope at that hope would be to get her in a situation where she's extremely sloppy drunk and take advantage of her, b/c that's probably the only shot you'll ever get.

Phil on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 11:27 AM

I knew a girl that would only sleep with guys in relationships because that way she didn't have to worry about rumors being spread about her being a slut.

Jay on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 11:40 AM

Douglas, I think it's safe to say that you have never been in friendville. In fact, I would wager that most of the guys on this site haven't been. I know I, Phil, Marc, and Joe have all been put there. If any of you have, let me know so I can feel better. I don't think friends with benefits falls into friendville. That is a completely different beast altogether. Phil, some of those things you're saying don't put you in friendville neccasarily, however, they don't lock you out of friendville either.

joe on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 11:44 AM

friends with benefits is just awesome. In no way is it linked to friendville. We were just saying around here taht if you lose the benefit what is the point of being friends? Is it possible to be friends after nailing a chick with no relationship for a period of time? You can't have plutonic because that will lead back to its benefits. I think it is a class of its own that leads to nowhere except possible relationships.

douglas on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 11:46 AM

not true, there are some former friends with benefits that I'm not necessarily great friends with, but I'm always friendly to when I see them

douglas on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 11:47 AM

and yes, I have been stuck in friendville numerous times, so I know all about it.

Jay on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 11:47 AM

I don't know. I'm going to find a FWB this weekend, and after a couple of months I'll stop it and let you know.

joe on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 11:47 AM

whereas a booty call you aren't friendly to

Jay on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 11:47 AM

Have you really? That kind of surprises me.

douglas on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 11:48 AM

booty calls are especially nice as well, where you just show up, say hi, get naked, do it, and then leave

Phil on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 11:48 AM

I'm thinking about asking girls out over and over and if they say "sorry, I have a boyfriend" telling them "that's ok, I only sleep with girls in relationships because otherwise they get too attached to me."

joe on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 11:48 AM

Is it possible to have nailed a chick then move on to friendville?

Phil on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 11:50 AM

if you manage to sleep with a girl, and then move to friendville then congradulations, you're terrible in bed!

Phil on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 11:51 AM

congratulations even!

I am so bored at work today. Thank god for this conversation

douglas on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 12:12 PM

as for going straight to friendville after sleeping with a girl, that's never happened, so i guess i'm a thunderbeast in bed. there have been times where girls or me got into relationships so the benefits stopped, but didn't necessarily quit being friends

douglas on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 12:13 PM

u know you're a thunderbeast when you've had two friends with benefits that were best friends

joe on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 12:14 PM

way cooler if it was at the same time

Never seen halfway hollow, but Evil Engine #9 is pretty good. I really like a couple of their songs.

Jay on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 12:42 PM

I probably won't be in town and ready to go until at least 8:30.

Phil on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 1:00 PM

ok, i was going to write up a big spiel on this crap but I'm too lazy. Here's the non proofread "shortened version"

Level 1 (the lowest level)
The "I'm lazy and going to complain I'm in friendville just so I don't have to deal with the fear and humiliation that comes with asking a girl out." Yeah, I'm guilty of this 99.999% of the time. It hardly qualifies as friendville, but it warrants mentioning. How to escape: stop being a pussy.

Level 2
The" I asked a girl out that I know" but she said we are too good of friends to date" level. Since the girl is just being polite and ultimately rejecting you, this is also on the outskirts of friendville. It warrants mentioning that some will think they are at a higher level within the initial shock of rejection, but in a couple of months you'll realize "the only reason I was even friends with her was because I wanted to sleep with her." This is were you think "that's bullshit, we really connected!" but ultimately you are lying to yourself. How to escape: stop lying to yourself and man up

Level 3
Someone you've known for a while that you asked out rejects you. This one hurts because there is an established relationship that you misread. Whoops! I think a lot of office crushes and classmates end up on this level. The friendship is probably more of a casual one, and if you weren't in close proximity to each other you probably would have never bothered. I rank this one higher than level 2 because you'll have to deal with them in the hallways of work / school. How to escape: find another girl and hopefully you've learned your lesson about asking out coworkers

Level 4
Unrequited Love. Friends with a girl that doesn't love you back. I'm talking proper friendship. Level 2 and Level 4 get confusing based on this friendship thing because you can easily convince yourself that you are really good friends with the level 2 thing, but you really aren't. The difference: with the level 4 unrequited love you KNOW without asking what the answer would be if you asked them out, because you are good friends. How to escape: You're only hope is to find an absolutely wonderful girl, but even that will be done in hopes of making the original girl jealous. You are fucked and it's time to listen to some dashboard confessional.

Level 5
You know, if things were different, you'd be probably be dating if not fucking married. Both parties have to know this. Otherwise, you are a level 4 (or a level 2 fooled into thinking that you are "good" friends). If instead of meeting her through your girlfriend at the time, you'd be dating. The key for this one is both parties have to have friends that says stuff like "man, why don't you date ________" and both parties have to say "he/she is just a friend." Otherwise you are a level 4.


As a frequent resident of friendville, I can say with utmost certainty that Level 2 is the worst one because you are ballslap sure that you are a level 4, or if you are really insane a level 5 and that anyone who thinks otherwise just doesn't get how quickly you connected. That confusion is just the fog of rejection that only time will show you the folly of your ways.

joe on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 1:57 PM

Phil that was deep

Bigworm on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 2:10 PM

Philco I am rolling at your levels of friendsville...but the key distinction is are you actually friends or is this simply a manifestation in your mind to think you are friends? That is the difference in your level ranking system.

The key to being put in friendsville is that you are actually friends, but you don't date because you dont' want to fuck up that relationship. Granted every guy stuck in friendsville if given the opportunity would bed their friendsville friends, however, normal women pretty much know right when they meet you if they want to fuck you or not and are actually placed in friendville or fuckville based on looks. It is very shallow, however, let's be honest...guys don't want to fuck an ugly girl either....and as usual there is an exception being the "moped" girl. It is important that I say normal women because if girls are fucked up in the head due to an abusive relationship or abusive past these girls can potentially and probably usually do cross the friendsville boarder and then you move to fuckville....albeit temporary.

The key is to not allow yourself to be in friendsville from the first place..unless she is an ugly chick because you can potentially reach fuckville with her friends. And since you are really cool with the ugly girl then they trust you as a good guy. In order to not be placed in friendsville one must seem to be a good guy with badboy tendancies because if you simply offer your dick on a platter to these women more so than not you become stuck in friendsville. Furthermore, if you continually lead them on, you are known as a tease, and you placed them in friendsville and they can't handle that shit.....especially the abused ones.

joe on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 2:26 PM

I have shared excerpts of our website and I've been told we should write a book

jen on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 2:27 PM

Yeah, I was going to just make it into an email forward...

adrian on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 2:29 PM

wow, you guys just pretty much spent the entire day on the Ramifications of "Friendville"...kind of entertaining and kind of gay

Phil on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 2:29 PM

That sounds like a lot of work

joe on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 2:31 PM

What else am I going to do Adrian, work? At least we don't sound like pedophiles anymore.

I'm gonna stay positive, go Irish!! What is anybody doing for any of the games tomorrow? UL is at noon, irish at 3:30, UT-OSU at 8?

Phil on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 2:35 PM

I'll be watching all of the games tomorrow, so if anyone wants to watch them just give me a call and head on over.

adrian on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 2:37 PM

I could care less about the U OF L game but the state & irish game and the OSU & TX game i plan on watching.

joe on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 2:39 PM

I like how you can see the TV from your kitchen

Jay on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 2:47 PM

42" Plasma screen and High def cable! And I didn't even have to invite myself! I'm there! I have tried talking about friendville with people at work, but none of them understand. Most of them have never been in friendville. They suck.

Phil on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 2:53 PM

jay, you need to make some adjustments to your fantasy team. Because I'm a nice guy: Drop Davis, your running back and pick up Tatum Bell from Denver.

Bigworm on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 2:57 PM

That made me think of this.

Banky Edwards: Alright, now see this? This is a four-way road, OK? And dead in the center is a crisp, new, hundred dollar bill. Now, at the end of each of these streets are four people, OK? Are you following?
Holden: Yeah.
Banky Edwards: Good. Over here, we have a male-affectionate, easy to get along with, non-political agenda lesbian. Down here, we have a man-hating, angry as fuck, agenda of rage, bitter dyke. Over here, we got Santa Claus, and up here the Easter Bunny. Which one is going to get to the hundred dollar bill first?
Holden: What is this supposed to prove?
Banky Edwards: No, I'm serious. This is a serious exercise. It's like an SAT question. Which one is going to get to the hundred dollar bill first? The male-friendly lesbian, the man-hating dyke, Santa Claus, or the Easter bunny?
Holden: The man-hating dyke.
Banky Edwards: Good. Why?
Holden: I don't know.
Banky Edwards: Because the other three are figments of your fucking imagination!

Jay on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 3:24 PM

Marc on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 4:24 PM

Wow Phil, good read. I am able to go through my life and big girls I was in friendville with and give them a number. Jess was Level 5, Jolynn was a Level 4, not too long ago I had a Level 2. (Jay may remember these names since since big bastard has known me for so long.) if a book is to be written on the idea of Friendville, then it has to be written by those who have been out of their own Friendville for a awhile now. Phil would be good as it primary writer. And I like the title "Welcome to Friendville. Population YOU"

Marc on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 4:26 PM

big girls = pick girls

You're right Firefox 2.0 spellcheck helps. Unless you are so retarded like me that you continually type the wrong words anyway.

Jay on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 4:45 PM

When I thought of you, those were the first two names that popped in my head. I have been doing the same thing. The only thing is that most of my lost loves don't fit any of those definitions. Here is a rundown
Erica-unicorn
Sarah, Beth, Jenny #1-girlfriends (if only technically)
Jenny #2- I'm going with level 4, although she doesn't really fit any of them
Yeager- Just friends, and she was crazy
Whitney- definitely ASW
Katherine- Level 2, and she was crazy
Kira- Level 2
Aimee- Level 2
Jennifer- Level 2
Jen- Almost hook-up, not applicable
Christie- Just some girl whose number I got, not applicable

Jay on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 4:46 PM

There are some other girls who aren't on there, but I have been able to rate.

Marc on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 6:36 PM

Well if you boned her it could still be a Yeager Bomb. Oh yeah, That's right. I went there.

jen on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 6:45 PM

Marc on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 6:55 PM

Thanks Jen. I was pretty sure I was one classy individual before, but now that I got your nod, I KNOW it to be true.

That whole symposium on "friendville" was awesome. Phil, once again you are a goddamn genius.

Phil on Friday, September 08, 2006 at 11:00 PM

shit, stew when you leaving? Btw, I just realized a guy I ran CC with is stationed out there with you. You ever run into Chris Dettle?

stew on Saturday, September 09, 2006 at 12:43 AM

March 12 to be exact. I don't recognize his name...do you know what unit he's with? My unit is an infantry unit that is stuck out in a remote corner of the base as we are the bastard children of Camp Pendleton. One thing that sucks about being attached to a grunt unit is that there are absolutely no females, however the benefit to that is that we train alot harder.

Marc on Saturday, September 09, 2006 at 8:21 AM

We agreed last night that the lead singer from Tantric DID look like a scrawny Scott Stabb (or as Bmac said "that guy from Creed). Heather from Wicks also works at Oasis. And all in all not a bad night. Although the chick at Saints did give Joe a free drink for filling out a card, but then told me. "Sorry I'm all out of free drinks but I can give you a t-shirt." 5 minutes later she comes over and tells Joe and us, "if you like the drink you can get them at the bar for $4 tonight."
WTF?
So apparently they weren't out of the liquor, and there was a bar over there to make more. But they ran out of free ones, but still had t-shirts? Usually the other way around. That's is unless they asked people "do you want a simple white shirt that has our product name already written across the front......or a free drink?" It ain't exactly a "cake or death" question.

Wing Commander on Saturday, September 09, 2006 at 11:18 AM

Marc, maybe the chick at Saints was trying to "drink Joe cute?"

Just a thought.

stew on Saturday, September 09, 2006 at 2:37 PM

49-0 3rd qtr. I don't even know why Petrino played starters at all. Come to think of it-I don't even know why we're playing Temple-maybe because they got kicked out of the BE and the conferences owes them some games or something. Kolby Smith is averaging 12.4 yds/carry. No disrespect to Mike Bush, but I think the RB by committee thing is gonna work out just as well. Stipling and Smith would probably be starting backs at most schools.

The good thing for UofL is they have good running backs behind Bush. The bad thing is I'd rather have my 6'3" 250 pound heisman candidate running back for Miami and West Virginia. I think with Bush UofL hands Miami their asses, without Bush not so sure because I just don't think that they will be able to control the line against Miami as easily as they did against Temple and UK.

hey Jerome, remind me to complain to you about the choppiness of the NBC HD broadcast tomorrow. It's given me a headache.

Also, the ND vs Michigan game AND the Louisville vs Miami game are not going to be broadcast in HD next week. I am a sad panda.

Marc on Monday, September 11, 2006 at 7:57 AM

Jay, since you asked previously. YES, the 3 Star Wars dvd being released tomorrow. (or if you are super-geeky I supposed at midnight at Meijer or whatnot) ARE INDEED the ORIGINAL THEATRICAL films.

Jerome on Monday, September 11, 2006 at 9:08 AM

NBC HD football is a fucking joke ... my issues with it:

1) The BLURRY - imagine sitting in the stands with your binoculars and your 6-year-old nephew. You watch the ENTIRE GAME through the binoculars then every 3rd play or so, your nephew takes the focus lever and flips it back and forth. VERY annoying.
2) The Audio - During halftime at the MIA v. PIT game on Thursday, I wanna know what genius decided to broadcast from that spot. For those who didn't see it, the halftime guys seemed to be inches away from the stadium speakers at Heinz Field where it was REDNECK ROCK for the entire 12 minutes. An HD broadcast typically pipes, at least, 5.1 Dolby Digital. The abundance of Mullet Music in the background and the halftime team trying to shout over it was hard to take.
3) The Station ID - Maybe this was a WAVE 3 problem, but every time they wanted to show their logo, the HD was turned off!
4) Sideline reporter - Andrea Kremer is a great reporter ... but in HD, she's not as easy on the eyes as Sam Ryan, Melissa Stark, Erin Andrews, Suzy Kolber, Sam Ryan, Melissa Stark, Michelle Tafoya, Lisa Guerrero, Sam Ryan, or Melissa Stark
5) No unusual camera angles -- ESPN HD, ABC HD both used to give that great overhead HD view for the prime time games with that camera that was suspended over the field. The NBC HD views were so vanilla and really didn't get you into the game. Even FOX HD had more interesting views of the field.

Bigworm on Monday, September 11, 2006 at 9:23 AM

Bigworm on Monday, September 11, 2006 at 9:26 AM

Yeah I heard what TV they got.....that is an awesome TV set.

Joe, did you ever get your bike fixed...not that I am going to ride today but just curious?

joe on Monday, September 11, 2006 at 9:31 AM

I'm going to work on it sometime this week. I'm going to see how much it will cost to fix by a shop, see how much it will cost to fix it myself and see how much a new bike will cost. Might fix it and get a road bike or a nicer mountain bike. Weighing my options.

Bigworm on Monday, September 11, 2006 at 9:32 AM

Yeah I eventually want to get a road bike, but not sure since you probably can't get 3 feet of air.

joe on Monday, September 11, 2006 at 9:33 AM

Message from our CEO sent via email recieved at 9:27 A.M. today:

"Today our nation marks the fifth anniversary of the September 11 attacks. This day will always be a national day of mourning, a time when we honor the memory of all those who lost their lives to senseless terror. Here at JPMorgan Chase, we'll pause for two moments of silence, each marking the times when the World Trade Center buildings were hit: 8:46 am ET and 9:03 a.m. ET."

joe on Monday, September 11, 2006 at 9:35 AM

I could get three feet of air on it, it would probably just snap when I land though.

joe on Monday, September 11, 2006 at 9:37 AM

I might just say happy birthday to myself and buy a bike.

Bigworm on Monday, September 11, 2006 at 9:37 AM

Wow.....you should jsut reply back...way to go ass.

Bigworm on Monday, September 11, 2006 at 9:38 AM

Probably not if you want to keep your job.

joe on Monday, September 11, 2006 at 9:38 AM

I wonder if i could email our CEO, because that would be awesome to do that.

Bigworm on Monday, September 11, 2006 at 9:38 AM

So has Douglas started his new job yet?

Phil on Monday, September 11, 2006 at 9:40 AM

i had a baby to be crushed?

So, I'm not sure what's worse: NBC's ineptness at broadcasting in "HD" or the sound effect Fox played every time the ball was snapped.

jen on Monday, September 11, 2006 at 9:58 AM

So Fox created something stupid to rival the "glow puck"? They should leave sports alone.

Phil on Monday, September 11, 2006 at 10:05 AM

nothing will EVER top the little snow plow graphics from the playoffs last year. Those were honestly the highlight of the NFL playoffs for me. These are the things that are needed to get through a season as a buffalo bills fan.

I'm going to create a big list of useless things Fox could do to "improve" NFL broadcasts.

Phil on Monday, September 11, 2006 at 10:25 AM

Hey Jen, I got a question you might know. So I'm turning in my Jetta at the end of the lease. The guy who inspected it just came out and told me that there was no Excess W&T and zero chargeable wear and tear. The thing says "additional charges will be assessed for mechanical damage and/or wear and tear not present at initial inspection." Is it safe to assume that they will not ass rape me when I turn in my car?

Bigworm on Monday, September 11, 2006 at 11:26 AM

Joe - have you been looking at road bikes? If so, what are you thinking about getting?

A successful 100+ mile ride over two days! I may not be as fat and out of shape as I once thought. Anytime you survive a physical endurance without any serious damage, you feel pretty good. Not that I was feeling good in the middle of a 45-degree slope going 2 mph, but after its done... excellent.

Even with road tires on the mountain bike, road bikes will definitely destroy you. The only advantage I had was down steep hills, because my excess weight got me up near 40 mph... take that Lance!

Bigworm on Monday, September 11, 2006 at 2:04 PM

So then needless to say you had fun Brock?

Bigworm on Monday, September 11, 2006 at 2:05 PM

Road and mountain bikes are completely separate beast....I know when we are riding Seneca and get passed by some spandex wearing road biker, Joe immediatly vaults into about 3 feet of air and then tells them to do that.

joe on Monday, September 11, 2006 at 2:26 PM

btw, something about Bonnie Berstein reminds me of Jerome's wife

Phil on Monday, September 11, 2006 at 10:27 PM

first instance of "as I STUDIED him over his career" mention by Jaws. All it took was 5 seconds into the game.

Phil on Monday, September 11, 2006 at 10:46 PM

I'm not going to lie, I'm really enjoying the Dick Vermeil + Jaws experience.

Phil on Monday, September 11, 2006 at 11:59 PM

I almost don't want to go to bed. Seriously, I don't think we'll see an announcing team as good as Vermel and Jaws in the booth in the next 15 years. This is a once in a lifetime moment.

Wait, did the just say the fucking Governator is going to be in the booth. Chriiiiiist.

Service Dude: Convertibles do that sir.

Me: I don't have a convertible.

Service Dude: Oh then it is out of track. Bring it in.

He tore his acl with the Bengals and really never really recovered. He then went to the Redskins and wasn't really the same player from college after teh knee injury. I think he went somewhere else from the redskins but i am not really sure.

Jerome on Tuesday, September 12, 2006 at 10:58 AM

One more thing before I get back to work ... I wanna chime in on the bike thing.

I really like Kona's line of bikes especially since I'm an "all-in-one" kinda shopper that doesn't want to deal with buying each component separately. They seem to be pretty good quality and a good bang for the buck. The one I have is a lower end cross country bike (Lava Dome) that has Shimano shifts and gears with a Marzocchi fork. The weight of the bike is what I like best 'cause I feel like it holds my "husky" body-type well. Smooth on the road and solid off the road. The only thing that has changed about the bike since I got it is the color. Price is still the same and the components are of similar price/performance quality.

They have different lines of bikes depending on the needs of the terrain from "Dirt Jumping" to the newly introduced "Road" racing.

Bigworm on Tuesday, September 12, 2006 at 11:22 AM

http://www.mrbig.com/tnt/archives/2005/08/27/42/

PSU Players in the NFL

Every year around this time, I take a look at which Nittany Lions have risen to the pinnacle of professional football. As of August 27, here are the Penn State players who are currently on NFL rosters (NFL experience in parentheses):

* Anthony Adams (3), DT, SF 49ers
* LaVar Arrington (6), LB, Washington Redskins
* Kyle Brady (11), TE, Jacksonville Jaguars
* Courtney Brown (6), DE, Denver Broncos (hurt again)
* Kerry Collins (11), QB, Oakland Raiders
* Eddie Drummond (4), WR, Detroit Lions
* Omar Easy (4), RB, Oakland Raiders
* Bobby Engram (10), WR, Seattle Seahawks
* Rich Gardner (2), CB, Tennessee Titans
* John Gilmore (4), TE, Chicago Bears
* Jeff Hartings (10), C, Pittsburgh Steelers
* Michael Haynes (3), DE, Chicago Bears
* Kim Herring (9), S, Cincinnati Bengals
* Joe Iorio (1), C, Pittsburgh Steelers
* Tyoka Jackson (11), DT, St. Louis Rams
* Bryant Johnson (3), WR, Arizona Cardinals
* Larry Johnson (2), RB, Kansas City Chiefs
* Bhawoh Jue (5), S, San Diego Chargers
* Joe Jurevicius (7), WR, Seattle Seahawks
* Jimmy Kennedy (3), DT, St. Louis Rams
* Matt Kranchick (2), TE, Pittsburgh Steelers
* Justin Kurpeikis (4), LB, Cleveland Browns
* David Macklin (6), CB, Arizona Cardinals
* Shawn Mayer (2), S, Atlanta Falcons
* Sean McHugh (1), TE, Green Bay Packers
* Kareem McKenzie (5), OT, New York Giants
* Jim Nelson (6), LB, Baltimore Ravens
* Brandon Noble (6), DT, Washington Redskins
* Marco Rivera (9), OG, Dallas Cowboys
* Bryan Scott (3), S, Atlanta Falcons
* Brandon Short (6), LB, Carolina Panthers
* Tony Stewart (5), TE, Cincinnati Bengals
* Kevin Thompson (3), QB, Buffalo Bills
* Kenny Watson (4), RB, Cincinnati Bengals

So, Richie Anderson finally retired after 12 years in the NFL! I guess Parcells’ system was just too much for a guy who had tremendous NFL longevity with the Jets and the Cowboys. Also among the missing from last year’s NFL crop is Brad Scioli, formerly of the Indianapolis Colts.

Bigworm on Tuesday, September 12, 2006 at 11:24 AM

I'll go with Bryant Johsnon. He could easily be the third best WR in the NFL, however, nobody will ever know because Larry Fitzgerald and Anquan Boldin are the two best and play for the same team.

Phil on Tuesday, September 12, 2006 at 11:24 AM

It's Arizona, so the smoking think is drastically different odds than here in Kentucky. I'm going to say 30% chance chick on the left smokes and a 10% chance the one on the right smokes.

If these girls were from kentucky these odds would change to 98% for left side chick and 50% for right side chick.

Has anyone else ever watched the replays of games on ESPN that come on at like 3 in the morning and skip all the boring parts of the game? Since I quit sleeping over the past couple of months I have caught a lot of these games and I think they are genius. Last night I watched the oregon fresno state game and they basically only showed scoring drives and turnovers. I watched a baseball game the other day and it showed the first inning then skipped to the 4th inning. More things in life need to do this, skip all the boring shit.

Phil on Wednesday, September 13, 2006 at 9:59 AM

stew, the dancing video cracked me up. First of all, I think it was fake. But the end was some funny shit. Great respond by the guy dancing once her figured out they were filming him.

Marc on Wednesday, September 13, 2006 at 10:00 AM

Okay, so I thought it was a somewhat slow week for dvd releases. Besides thearical versions of the original Star Wars movies. All I knew comming to dvd was Lucky # Slevin and District B13. And then I watched them both and wow, it was a great dvd week.

District B13 is a french movie (but still has a great english audio track that keeps 5.1 sound.) about Paris in the future divided into different ghettos of crime and corruption. And a lone cop and a vigilante have to team up to bust into a ghetto and keep a bomb from detonating. The action is quick and similar to the martial arts one might see in the Transporter, or the Protector. It was high-action and highly enjoyed. Jay you will definitely like this movie.

Lucky # Slevin was secret great find for me. I know Lynnie and Cheryl saw it when it came out and recommended it, but I didn't know much about it and the previews only looked "just okay." Damn that was an awesome movie. The best I've seen in a while. So many big names in it, but don't let that distract you. It is an awesome movie on it's own merits. Being a big movie buff and a guy who often thinks "watch out for that guy , I bet he'll pop up later.." while watching movies, I did see a few things comming. But what can I say, I'm a genius. Seriously, the movie is spectacular. Put it at the top of your Netflix queue, rent it today, or something. Did I mention I liked it? I don't know if that came across.

joe on Thursday, September 14, 2006 at 8:07 AM

Hey Phil, I was reading that 50 years of Trinity Cross Country book and you were in there twice.

The only time I ever time my runs anymore is if I am running in a race. I let my body tell me how I am doing. I can feel improvements at the end of runs. I really don't need my shoe to tell me.

adrian on Thursday, September 14, 2006 at 8:17 AM

well aren't you just so cool joe.

Wrecking Crew on Thursday, September 14, 2006 at 9:10 AM

fucking cardiovascular exercise is over-rated. i think we should all just accept the fact that we are past our prime, and everything is downhill from here. no matter how much harder we work we are just fighting a losing battle. more work with less return. fuck it all.

the notre dame game is HD too. I thought you said neither of them were in HD?

Louisville game was recently changed (as in some time before yesterday afternoon and this morning). The Notre Dame game is on WBKI here in Louisville so it won't be broadcast in HD locally.

Marc on Thursday, September 14, 2006 at 2:23 PM

We gotta get Joe used to climbing up ladders with Douglas on his back (B-mac would be lighter but too "squirrelly", or could use neighbor kid. They bounce when dropped.) Also, Joe needs to learn how to control and use a high-powered hose...especially since he was unable to on New Years. He needs to rescue small animals out of trees. I recommend Lynnie for this one. He needs and excuse to come out and already loves playing a drunken version of "splinter cell" in Joe's backyard. Joe all the training you do, do with extra weight.

If Joe makes the cut and then retires he can be St Matthews mayor with a great firefighter service job on his resume.

joe on Thursday, September 14, 2006 at 2:24 PM

I already ran aroung the block with a 75 lb 3rd grader on my back.

Some cubicle walls allows thumbtacks to be used on them. Others are nearly impenetrable... like pussy was for Joe on New Years.

Good work Joe. Work your way up to the fatter kids though. Eventually you should give Jay piggy-back rides. Chris tried that once. It wasn't pretty.

Okay, so a horrible movie was on tv.but it had a cameo by Danelle Fishel (Topanga from Boy Meets World). So I look her up on IMDB to see what else she has been in, and then click on her biography. She dated Lance Bass of N'Sync "but the constant time apart led to their break up." She also took him to prom. I wonder if "the constant time apart" was code for "his love for dick."

Marc on Thursday, September 14, 2006 at 2:56 PM

Saturday was my joke on Adrian day. Today must be my Joe day. So I'd better not come up short....
Wait...I can do better.
Joe can be the ass of the joke, since the joke is he didn't get the ass.
Nope, not good enough.... how about...
The best thing about Joe is how he constantly loses bodily fluids, just not from his penis.

For trivia Tuesday we did go with the team name "My penis is 24 years old today. Buy it a drink." While Monday's team name (because of two girls on our team) was "Normally the only tits on our team are Marc's."

Bigworm on Thursday, September 14, 2006 at 4:01 PM

Marc on Thursday, September 14, 2006 at 4:02 PM

Patel is an Indian name. It is like Smith over there. I don't think the US is concerned about India. but India/Pakistan rivalry can be edgy.

joe on Thursday, September 14, 2006 at 4:05 PM

he looks foreign is all that matters. It is like Dino getting stopped every time he is in an airport. When Dino, Bmac and me fly to Chicago at the end of the month he will get stopped but idiots like b-mac and I will walk right through.

Marc on Thursday, September 14, 2006 at 4:11 PM

Just get him to do a good Carlos Mencia impersonation and say "beaner" eight billions times. They might still stop him though. Be warned if near border states they may want to look inside his ass for contraband. Which, at least in my opinion, is worse then the regular "extra attention" they might give him.

Phil on Thursday, September 14, 2006 at 4:17 PM

Here's the response from the guy at Wave3 in regards to Notre Dame football:
NBC and Notre Dame insisted on placing all of the games on the same station. Since WAVE has a conflict due to its SEC contract there were a few ND games that WAVE would have had to join in progress. Several years ago out of respect for our ND fans, WAVE (before HD) helped place these games on WBKI. This year NBC informed WAVE that it was all or none (although I now have found out that WBKI will join the ND/UCLA game in progress because of commitments made to another TV station in the market) I offered to carry the all of the games in it entirety in HD and join in progress the few games in analog. I also offered to carry all the games in HD and let WBKI carry the games in analog. Both offers were unacceptable to NBC and Notre Dame. NBC never would confirm if another station had picked up the games until I heard it on the radio. NBC claims it is Notre Dame that’s behind this per its contract.

Bigworm on Thursday, September 14, 2006 at 4:35 PM

Yeah Marc Patel is an Indian name that actually means "land owner".

I wasn't sure if they were making fun of her or not.

Phil on Saturday, September 16, 2006 at 12:01 AM

this toledo game is like watching a couple of retards humping a door knob.

OT: Toledo was forced to go for it on 4th and goal from the 30 because they don't have anyone on their team that has kicked a field goal over 40 yards this year after putting themselves in a huge whole because of penalities.

So Kansas only needs to kick a field goal to win. Kansas fumbles the first snap.

Bring on second overtime...

Phil on Saturday, September 16, 2006 at 12:07 AM

Kansas just threw an interception (Meirer's forth of the night). Toledo just needs a field goal to win. Too bad they don't have a kicker worth a damn...

Rumor has it that the Miami board of trustees have called an emergency meeting for Sunday at 3:00pm to discuss Larry Coker's fate.

adrian on Sunday, September 17, 2006 at 10:32 AM

Yeah i watched the USC game last night when it happened. It was distrurbing looking.

And on the news this morning, you should of heard the u of l football players last night. I believe it was Gay that said this proves U of L has the best offense and the best defense in the nation. I thought that was funny.

Bigworm on Sunday, September 17, 2006 at 11:45 AM

Coker is gone.....according to Miami he has run the program into the ground.

Bigworm on Sunday, September 17, 2006 at 11:46 AM

I should say according to Miami Fans and some big money backers he has ran the program into the ground.

joe on Sunday, September 17, 2006 at 12:50 PM

Worm, to answer your question from Friday, I don't have a gf I have just been bringing out Laura, Penn State chick, a lot since she has been back in town. Right now we are friends, and if anybody hasn't noticed, when it comes to females I am retarded and the big question is how am I going to fuck this up?

Phil on Sunday, September 17, 2006 at 12:57 PM

mother fucking CBS is showing the Titans vs Colts game in SD instead of Bills vs Dolphins in HD. Fuuuuuuuuuck them.

joe on Sunday, September 17, 2006 at 12:59 PM

UL didn't play too bad for a bunch of "Miami rejects." I've heard more about Miami being bad then UL looking good on TV. Why can't people accept the fact that UL might actually have a decent team?

Phil on Sunday, September 17, 2006 at 1:25 PM

mother fucking cbs is also showing the fucking titans vs chargers in SD instead of the KC vs Denver game or Pats vs Jets in HD at 4:00. What a shitty day.

And Miami is a really shitty team. They lost to FSU who is also a really shitty team. Clemson set up the winning touchdown while FSU was staring at the sideline trying to figure out what defense to run and the only reason FSU kept it even close was Clemson kept getting their kicks blocked. And Clemson lost to BC last week who had to get lucky to survive the BYU game.

The whole ACC is shitty besides maybe Virginia Tech, but it's hard to tell with them only playing Duke, UNC and Northeastern.

Bigworm on Sunday, September 17, 2006 at 2:04 PM

The ACC is shitty and yes Miami is down especially in the last 4 years.

I think UofL has a legit top 10 if not top 5 team right now. If Bush and Brohm had not both sustained injuries this year, seriously they probably could have won the national championship. Cantwell is a good qb and they have other good running backs behind Bush and in my opinion can still win it because their offense is that explosive and yes the schedule does help. However, if they beat the teams they are suppose to and whip the ones they aren't suppose to win, then why wouldn't they be national championship game worthy. Petrino has built a good program that is exciting to watch....beats the defensive slug gest that Auburn and LSU just played that Auburn won 7-3. Also, the SEC boys will just beat up on each other with the likes of Florida, UT, Auburn, Alabama, LSU and UGA and as a result removes themselves from national championship contention.

I think their defense isn't national championship caliber, however, they have improved greatly since last year (that UK grad isn't doing so bad with UofL's D). Also since the Offense can drop 40 on you, you better have a high power offense to match theirs.

Bigworm on Sunday, September 17, 2006 at 2:06 PM

Also, UK got a much needed win against Ole Piss 31-14 last night. UK's schedule is much easier this year and as such could actually end up 7-5 and going to a bowl game this year.

Bigworm on Sunday, September 17, 2006 at 2:12 PM

The more and more I think about it, UK might not be so bad this year and yes I think UofL is just that damn good.

Phil on Sunday, September 17, 2006 at 2:31 PM

Dickie Lyonns is leading the NCAA in receiving TDs.

Phil on Sunday, September 17, 2006 at 2:54 PM

Good: CBS switched to the Bills game
Bad: Not in HD

Bigworm on Sunday, September 17, 2006 at 7:10 PM

Kerry Collins is the biggest piece of shit ever....well 2nd biggest next to A. Brooks.

adrian on Sunday, September 17, 2006 at 7:55 PM

Word of advice to trail riders...

If you decide to take a break, at least move to a side of the trail and not stand right in the fucking middle. Some jackasses (three to be exact) were taking a break on a hill and stood right in the middle of the god damn trail. Needless to say, when someone (i.e Me) was going downthe hill, that someone (me) had to dodge them smacking an ankle right into a tree.

stew on Sunday, September 17, 2006 at 11:18 PM

So I just got back from the Chargers game which was awesome, and I would have to agree with Wes. Kerry Collins did suck today, but so did the whole Titans team. Vince Young put together a decent drive in the 4th qtr that led to their only score. I cant wait til the Chargers-Steelers game on Oct. 8th.

Bigworm on Monday, September 18, 2006 at 12:32 AM

Bigworm on Monday, September 18, 2006 at 12:33 AM

Kerry Collins just didn't suck today he has sucked for his last 34 starts. In his last 35 starts he is 7-25. That is definately not a good way to keep your job.

Douglas - looks like your team underperformed this week in fantasy football. I still have another player going tonight and already won by 11.5 points. Maybe I should just bench him so there is no way I can lose.

joe on Monday, September 18, 2006 at 8:45 AM

Man I hope fred taylor sucks tonight

Phil on Monday, September 18, 2006 at 8:53 AM

I got beat by McNabb and the Ravens (they played Oakland). My team can't find the god damn endzone.

Bigworm on Monday, September 18, 2006 at 8:55 AM

Phil I know your pain, I have Lamont Jordan on my team and I just cuss every time I see Brooks take the snap because the D knows this guy isn't going to beat us with his arm....so pile in the box.

Brock on Monday, September 18, 2006 at 8:57 AM

Church, you better hope that the Steelers don't throw up a ton of points on the board, or you could lose to Jay... who is taunting you by flashing two goose eggs with Portis and Dom Davis.

Jay, please don't turn into the next Chris, change your roster at least once this season.

joe on Monday, September 18, 2006 at 8:57 AM

if fred taylor does good I lose in natty sci and win at work. if he sucks I beat the slashers and lose at work. I hate being in multiple leagues.

Brock on Monday, September 18, 2006 at 8:58 AM

Did Aaron Brooks even play yesterday? I think they went with the 2nd string guy.

joe on Monday, September 18, 2006 at 8:58 AM

andrew walters played a lot. Oh ya and TO sucks.

Phil on Monday, September 18, 2006 at 9:00 AM

Aaron Brocks got knocked out pretty early. I know he played at least the first quarter. I personally think he was just faking an injury to get the hell off the field.

Phil on Monday, September 18, 2006 at 9:00 AM

poor Jay's team. I think if he would have listened to me about picking up Bell he'd be undefeated right now.

Bigworm on Monday, September 18, 2006 at 9:10 AM

Well that tells you how good the 2nd string guy is if Brooks starts over him.

I think Male had the best recruiting class

No, Male just has a higher payroll.

I have done a little bit with my team. One of my guys was on IR, so I took him out. Did you really expect I would do very well considering I know relatively nothing about football or the mechanics of fantasy sports? And Asian women love me.

joe on Monday, September 18, 2006 at 9:57 AM

I just know that someone mentioned it some time ago Jerome. I'm assuming it was Adrian.

Phil on Monday, September 18, 2006 at 10:03 AM

i was trying to get people to do a dualathlon, but I think that season is over.

Triathlons probably won't happen for me because I hate swimming so training for that would never happen.

joe on Monday, September 18, 2006 at 10:04 AM

I'm thinking of trying something next spring or summer

Bigworm on Monday, September 18, 2006 at 10:16 AM

Considering Male is state funded and St. X and Trinity are all done by private donors and as such don't have to disclose payroll information, I would bet St. X and Trinity are paying their coaches much better.

Bigworm on Monday, September 18, 2006 at 10:18 AM

Joe - I know I want to start doing competitve road rides, but I have to get a road bike to do that. I am not sure how my knees will hold up for running and the fact I need to drop 35 pounds of fat hinders me also...but training would be a good way to lose the weight.

What are the distances for both?

joe on Monday, September 18, 2006 at 10:20 AM

there are all kinds of distances. Not really sure what. Chris' friend Scott knows more then I do.

Bigworm on Monday, September 18, 2006 at 10:23 AM

Phil on Monday, September 18, 2006 at 10:42 AM

So, I've watched enough NFL this year that I've been brainwashed into NEEDING the NFL Equipment Performance Fleece. NEED IT. But apparently Buffalo has been deemed unworthy. Here are their sweatshirts: http://www.nflshop.com/family/index...&cp=2237578

It looks like they are still dropping stock from the last time the Bills were in the super bowl to me. To make things even worse, Jerome found a picture of the sweatshirt (http://images.amazon.com/images/P/B...SCTZZZZZZZ_.jpg), but we can't find the freakin' product page.

DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK:
Brandon Sharp, Louisville, FS, Sr.., 5-11, 195, Jacksonville, Fla./Bolles
Sharp registered eight tackles, including one tackle for loss, and one sack in Louisville's 31-7 win over No. 17/15 Miami on Sept. 16. The Cardinals held the Hurricanes to just 64 rushing yards and had four quarterback sacks. It was just the third time since 2004 that Miami has been held to seven points or less.

Bigworm on Monday, September 18, 2006 at 2:06 PM

After my burial every couch in my house must be retired and burned in a massive bonfire throwdown in which my possesions are burned.

I don't want it to be like a normal funeral, or a normal friday. I want an f'ing party. My ashes on the mantle, in front of a portrait of me. Live band, open bar, balloons, every thing. I also hope everyone has enough to eat. I almost want to have it at joe's house (if you would let me). That just seems way more appropriate.

Not that I'm trying to discourage anyone from going to trivia if they were planning on it. But if you weren't anyway. I have a pass for two to a sneak preview of ALL THE KINGS MEN. it stars Sean Penn, Anthony Hopkins, Jude Law, Kate Winslet, James Gandolfini, etc.

The showing is TONIGHT at 7:30 (at Showcase Stonybrook) and it recommends to get there early to ensure a seat. So it you want to see it for free give me a call so I can meet up with you SOON.

Have any of you guys been getting calls from people (in my case, all girls) from bellarmine asking for money? I've had three in the past week.

Brock on Tuesday, September 19, 2006 at 6:48 PM

Bellarmine needs money to build this "Notre Dame of the South" thing... and to bring their athletics to Division I (which would actually be kind of neat).

I might throw them $15 just so when I tell people that I went to Bellarmine, they don't say "where?" But instead say "Oh, yeah, Kentucky beat them by 150 points last night"

douglas on Tuesday, September 19, 2006 at 8:11 PM

Bellarmine's already taken enough of my money. The only way they're ever getting money from me after ripping me off for four fucking years is if I become rich, and I have solid proof that that only solitary reason I became rich is b/c I went to Bellarmine. Other than that, they don't see another dime from me.

joe on Wednesday, September 20, 2006 at 9:53 AM

Fuck Bellarmine.

Brock on Wednesday, September 20, 2006 at 9:55 AM

Phil, that was a secondary objective, stated in the masterfully-crayon drawn pamphlet I received with McGowen's ugly mug on the back.

The rise to Div I athletics is a secondary goal following the addition of 20 new colleges, 20,000 students, a gold-plated mask and iron fist for McGowen, a monorail, and turning the golf course into a Tuscan Villa. Once all those other objectives have been met, they will "explore" the possibility of moving to Div I - I know, they have lacrosse, shutup, that doesn't count.

Brock on Wednesday, September 20, 2006 at 9:56 AM

I'm pretty sure at some point, when Chris or Wes was drunk, that they did try and fuck the Robert Bellarmine statue.

adrian on Wednesday, September 20, 2006 at 10:52 AM

Damn I am drinking an even more perfect Gatorade right now. I found out these are the key steps....

Duration: 1 - 1.25 hours.
1. Put 20 oz fierce grape gatorade in freezer.

2. After thirty minutes, take gatorade out and shake it up breaking up any ice formed. Put back in freezer.

3. After 30 more minutes take gatorade out and shake it up again breaking up the slush.

4. Now depending on consistency of slush desired you may want to put back in the freezer for 15 - 20 minutes then break up the drink with a healthy shake. I am one who likes more slush so i put the drink back in. The shaking of the bottle is key so jay should be a pro at this...

adrian on Wednesday, September 20, 2006 at 10:57 AM

Oh and placement of the Gatorade is also important. Our freezer at work has shelves so i prefer the middle shelf. Not to close to the ice maker and not to far away.

joe on Wednesday, September 20, 2006 at 11:04 AM

We dont have freezers at work

Jay on Wednesday, September 20, 2006 at 11:13 AM

We only have sample freezers. Not really for Gatorade.

joe on Wednesday, September 20, 2006 at 11:26 AM

is this for all gatorade or just that particular flavor?

adrian on Wednesday, September 20, 2006 at 11:30 AM

Fierce grape is the only flavor that freezes.

Phil on Wednesday, September 20, 2006 at 12:03 PM

there are quite a few people upset that the shirts won't be provided at the game.

this is going to be a cluster fuck
1) black t-shirts for a game in november? I'm down for wearing a t-shirt in 30 degree weather, but I'm also retarded
2) Louisville fans will have to know about it before hand. This won't happen
3) Louisville fans will have to be sober enough to remember to wear black even if they somehow were told about the dress code. This will also not happen
4) The West Virginia fans will be wearing dark blue t-shirts anyways

My guess is that maybe only 20% of the crowd wears black, but it'll looks suspiciously higher because of the blue t-shirts

nice shout out to the city of Louisville at the end.
Colin Cowherd almost moved me to tears today on ESPN radio when he referred to the UL - West Virginia game last year when speaking of the butchered call in the Oklahoma - Oregon game last week on the onsides kick. Only difference he said, it cost UL a BCS Bowl. Man I hate WVU.

Buddy at work commented on the short sleeve shirt for November also.

Bigworm on Wednesday, September 20, 2006 at 1:34 PM

Bigworm on Thursday, September 21, 2006 at 11:20 AM

Actually I have a pretty funny story with Merck. A friend of mine at Schwarz Pharma attended some conference that discusses ways how to quantify impurities in pharmaceutical drugs. Apparently this turned into a pissing contest and people just kept trying to one up each other on how they test for impurities. Well Merck had someone there, who of course, was flaunting that they were Merck and they must be right because they are Merck...well apparently the next morning at the meeting someone told Mr. Merck that Vioxx was being pulled off the shelves and their stock just plummetted 48% overnight.....apparently the "oh shit" look on his face was priceless.

I just saw the coolest thing ever. I was walking back from subway and i saw a squirrel take off running across linn station road. I also notic a red car driving pretty fast and i knew the squirrel was going to get hit. The car slowed down and i hear a thump and see the squirrel get sucked up underneath the car. So the car passes and all i see is a squirrel tumbling down linn station road. All of a sudden the fucking squirrel it the middle of its tumble , took off running and climbed a tree.

It was like the car didn't even phase it. I was impressed.

joe on Thursday, September 21, 2006 at 2:51 PM

holy shit squirrels can climb trees???

joe on Thursday, September 21, 2006 at 2:59 PM

So I reached the point where I gave up even attempting to act like I am working

Jay on Thursday, September 21, 2006 at 3:16 PM

Didn't you give up on that like a year ago?

jen on Thursday, September 21, 2006 at 3:21 PM

I actually have real work to do now, so I havent had to pretend in a while. I kind of miss slacking.

joe on Thursday, September 21, 2006 at 3:21 PM

true...but I just stepped it up a notch, if that is even possible. I've been spinning in my chair for about .

joe on Thursday, September 21, 2006 at 3:24 PM

let me finish that thought...a half hour.

Phil on Thursday, September 21, 2006 at 3:24 PM

i was holding my breath in suspense

joe on Thursday, September 21, 2006 at 3:24 PM

I bet

joe on Thursday, September 21, 2006 at 3:25 PM

I have work I just don't feel the need to do it

adrian on Thursday, September 21, 2006 at 3:33 PM

The only thing i am looking forward to do is get my car back from toyota and getting my gatordade out of the freezer in 37 minutes.

joe on Thursday, September 21, 2006 at 3:36 PM

so it has to be fierce grape. I might go to CVS tomorrow and get a fierce grape and hide it in the bagged ice freezer and walk over to CVS every half hour and check on it.

adrian on Thursday, September 21, 2006 at 3:36 PM

Now that would be funny as shit.

adrian on Thursday, September 21, 2006 at 3:38 PM

Has anyone else tried the chicken parmesan sub from subway? I really didn't care for it.

joe on Thursday, September 21, 2006 at 3:44 PM

The Subway down here scares me

joe on Thursday, September 21, 2006 at 3:46 PM

The Hindu chick yesterday had the dot on her forehead leaking

Bigworm on Thursday, September 21, 2006 at 3:48 PM

Fierce grape is the bomb baby no doubt...sorry couldn't resist.

Joe - Per Abby, if you are seriously still considering becoming an actuary she suggests you bust your ass and study to get atleast 1 test under your belt...according to her some new changes are going to require a lot more actuaries so people like Mercer should be hiring sometime soon.

joe on Thursday, September 21, 2006 at 3:50 PM

I'll look into it. However "bust your ass and study" isn't really my style. Maybe if the fireman route fails

adrian on Thursday, September 21, 2006 at 3:52 PM

Joe you would definately be qualified for a quality assurance position at brown foreman.

Phil on Thursday, September 21, 2006 at 3:52 PM

firemen can't be outsourced

joe on Thursday, September 21, 2006 at 3:58 PM

Brown Foreman has rejected me so many times. I did get a phone interview once.

adrian on Thursday, September 21, 2006 at 3:58 PM

true that...they just burn up and die

joe on Thursday, September 21, 2006 at 4:00 PM

I'd get one hell of a memorial

joe on Thursday, September 21, 2006 at 4:02 PM

I'm honestly suprised I haven't accidentally set myself on fire yet anyways

Brock on Thursday, September 21, 2006 at 4:34 PM

Adrian, let me ask you a question... how many times do you eat fast food a day? It seems like you recollect coming back from some resteraunt about 3 times a day.

If you cut that shit out, you might not have to run and bike so much to stay in shape.

jen on Thursday, September 21, 2006 at 4:41 PM

20 minutes to go!

Bigworm on Thursday, September 21, 2006 at 4:44 PM

Joe - I think she said bust your ass because as you know those tests are hard.

Bigworm on Thursday, September 21, 2006 at 4:45 PM

Brock does make an excellent point. I cut down my lunch frequency from 5 days of eating crap to just 3 and have noticed a difference...also I don't eat huge meals for dinner anymore.

adrian on Thursday, September 21, 2006 at 4:45 PM

Letrs see here. At about 11:00 i go down to kroger and get me some type of candy bar. Majority of the time i buy snickers. I go to lunch at about 1:00. And lately since arbys introduced the orange cream milk shake, i drive down and get one at about 3:00 - 3:15.

Thinking about, i am a fatty!

adrian on Thursday, September 21, 2006 at 4:47 PM

Not to mention I snack on works peanut m&ms through out the day and i have been drinking my frozen gatorades (130 calories).

Brock on Thursday, September 21, 2006 at 4:49 PM

You need to introduce more Big Red and Whities to your diet.

Bigworm on Thursday, September 21, 2006 at 4:49 PM

Whities spec for fat is 25% + or - 2%.

adrian on Thursday, September 21, 2006 at 4:57 PM

I can cope with Big Red. I can't fuck with white castles.

douglas on Thursday, September 21, 2006 at 5:03 PM

i'm proud of you guys for the late afternoon rush on the sci

Jay on Thursday, September 21, 2006 at 5:34 PM

Indeed, douglas. It has been an excellent showing.

Brent on Thursday, September 21, 2006 at 6:42 PM

Joe, a close friend of mine is an actuary in Chicago and he just finished his ninth test to become a fellow. He said for the first five tests, which are the hardest because they are not about applicable information, he would study countless hours to pass these fucking tests. He's one of the smartest guys I know, who breezed through high school as a National Merit Scholar and was able to drink a litre of bourbon...oh yeah, he co-op'ed his senior year high school, at the car wash down the street to get out of school for half a day. Good luck on being an actuary but its nothing you can just "wing," personally I would say be like your brother and get an MD, it would be much easier.

Brock on Thursday, September 21, 2006 at 6:43 PM

Nice burn, Brent.

Brent on Thursday, September 21, 2006 at 6:53 PM

Does it count if you don't mean to "burn."

Bigworm on Thursday, September 21, 2006 at 11:02 PM

Well I know Lee Truman has passed several exams, not sure on how many. He is the only person I have ever met who could learn advanced mathematics by reading the book and self teaching himself.

Brock on Thursday, September 21, 2006 at 11:06 PM

I think its a different class of burn... because you weren't aware that you telling Joe that he's a waste of flesh and has no business thinking about doing something that invovles mental effort... and then a final little dig about MD's.

BRAVO!

Brock on Thursday, September 21, 2006 at 11:10 PM

Why am I still in the lab? That's right, I'm an idiot!

But at least I don't have to come in tomorrow.

Phil on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 12:04 AM

stew on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 12:24 AM

Does anyone have Koren Robinson on their fantasy team??

Phil on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 12:33 AM

someone got Koren Robinson in the auto draft, but he's a free agent now. That one eyed bastard better not take any catches away from Donald "I go for 150 freakin' yards but can't get in the endzone" Driver.

stew on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 12:40 AM

Phil, you could always send him a case of beer and let nature run its course.

joe on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 8:30 AM

Ouch my diginity. At least this time it is someone other the my parents calling me a waste of flesh. I know Truman passed 2 of them and was struggling to pass the third one. Anthem quit paying for him to take the test because he failed it a couple of times. For me it is study my ass off and still fail like I did the first time, or say fuck it and be found down on the side of the road. I like option 2 better.

douglas on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 9:20 AM

option 2 sounds glorious, and don't know if bmac called you, but he got the results back and he's officially a CPA now, so we're being forced against our will to celebrate this evening. btw:

Does that mean you guys are going to fourth street? I...I don't know guys, I think thats BULLshit.

Jay on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 9:45 AM

I'd like to wish a happy birthday to David Coverdale, 55.

Phil what is your email addy?

I want to send you picture that you can use at your discretion when you make a new thread.

It's phil.scott (at) gmail.com.

Phil on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 11:06 AM

adrian, I'm really nerding out this morning. Hopefully I'll have something to show later today...

adrian on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 11:15 AM

If by nerding out you mean filming hot lesbian witches finger banging each other then that would definately be cool.

Phil on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 11:19 AM

oh this is about as far away as watching hot lesbian action as you can get

douglas on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 11:29 AM

you're watching male on male action aren't you?

douglas on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 11:30 AM

fag

joe on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 11:31 AM

you know how i know your gay? you watch male on male action.

adrian on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 11:32 AM

Douglas that just made my day. That and the gatordade i plan on drinking n a little bit.

adrian on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 11:33 AM

grrrrrrrrrrr........gatorade*

Phil on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 11:35 AM

speaking of male on male action, did anyone see the office last night? Thursday has an exceptional amount of good tv. I got back from seneca park at 9pm and ended up watching all the shows that my DVR recorded for me until 1:30am. You have :
My Name is Earl (B-, I just don't like episodes with Joy for some reason)
The Office (A+, "False! I do not miss Jim!")
Grey's Anatomy (B, I hate flashbacks)
Six Degrees (A-, pretty good show so far. Looks promising)
ER (A-, I like Jerry and Frank)

joe on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 11:35 AM

UK plays the florida gators this weekend...Could be fun

adrian on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 11:41 AM

I was almost in tears because i was laughing so hard while watching the office. That episode was hilarious.

I was looking at the point spread for the gator and UK game and it was 23 points as of yesterday. I was like "The gators must really suck to be only favored by 23 points"

Phil on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 11:42 AM

I'd take that line. Florida is trying to power their way through games now. Well, they have been in the past few games that I've watched. I'd be surprised to see them put up 30 points, and I don't think their defense is good enough to stop the touchdown machine that is Dickie Lyonns Jr.

joe on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 11:43 AM

I think woodson has back to back player of the week capabilities

Marc on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 11:49 AM

Brock, Chris and Bill coming out tonite? Wow it could be a legendary weekend. One time with them and the place smell of cheese and horse shit and the shower ran for over 6 hours.

adrian on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 11:49 AM

Playing at the swamp the score...

UF - 63
Uk - 17

joe on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 11:51 AM

And B-mac is celebrating his CPA

Bigworm on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 11:55 AM

So is the game plan to go out and rock out tonight then?

If so, I'll say count me in (but in reality we know I will go to sleep early)

The Office was fantastic last night.

joe on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 11:56 AM

I don't want to die

Bigworm on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 11:59 AM

Spread on UK/UF is 26 points. If UF runs the ball the score will be 49 to 21. If not, I like UK's chances better, but they still lose by 3 TDs....atleast.

Bigworm on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 12:01 PM

I really want to see the season premier to Smallville next thursday and Heroes should be on soon.

adrian on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 12:03 PM

I want to see the UK mascot skull fuck the florida gator mascot

joe on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 12:05 PM

I want "How I Met your Mother" to quit being gay or give Barney his own show

douglas on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 12:17 PM

i'm not so afraid to die, i think i'll be welcomed in hell with open arms

douglas on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 12:21 PM

UK will lose, but I don't think by 30, they've got some confidence now, they got a little swagger, and they honestly don't suck too bad. i would pay to see a skull fucking as well. The office was good last night too. If anyone watched 'six degrees' last night, that was a pretty good show, and the black guy in that show that was trying to get his brother to go work with him, he plays Omar in The Wire, in which he's the baddest mother fuckin' faggot I've ever seen. He goes to rob people and people just give him their drugs and money, and then he goes home and gives it to dudes in the ass. He kills one or two people an episode it seems like.

Marc on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 12:28 PM

So Douglas you can relate to the character?

I say unless we want a two-part faction of Natty Sci tonight, we avoid Fourth Street. I think only B-mac and Douglas like it particularly. But if Brock, Chris, Bill, B-mac, Douglas, Joe, Phil, Jay, me and whoever else shows up (I'm looking at you Wes, Adrian, Jen, and other readers who so up even more rarely.) It could be an awesome night... or two nights. whatever.

joe on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 12:33 PM

I say we try to roll at least 15 deep tonight.
1 Brock
2 Chris
3 Bill
4 B-mac
5 Douglas
6 Joe
7 Phil
8 Jay
9 Brody
10 Wes
11 Adrian
12 Jen
13 Joanna
14 Julie
15 B Mac's sister

joe on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 12:35 PM

I nominate meeting at Chris' house too

Jay on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 1:25 PM

That sounds like a plan to me.

Green Baron on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 1:32 PM

Well, it's been over two weeks and the Steve Irwin footage of him getting hit by the stingray is finally released:

Sorry, i will be m.i.a til stagger.

douglas on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 1:48 PM

i relate lots, i'm definitely the gayest one out of all of us, god knows i've had the least amount of sex with the least amount of women, so lord knows that makes me a fag.

as for 4th street, i only enjoy it when a) i'm with a bunch of people and b) i'm super duper drunk. both of these circumstances need to be in order, and i feel that only would be tonight, and i've never not been fine with good ol' baxter ave., so i will plan to commence at chris or joe's, or whoever the hell else's place we meet at, and get super duper drunk.

p.s., i still have a bunch of red bull, if someone wants to pick up some jager........

joe on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 1:55 PM

Fantastic

Bigworm on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 1:56 PM

So going 15 deep huh? Since Adrian is MIA...Marc it is your job to fill his slot with mad bitches.

douglas on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 1:57 PM

wes, u manning up or what?

Bigworm on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 2:00 PM

I might grace you homos with my presence tonight. If Phil gets plastered I will definately be there.

douglas on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 2:02 PM

so yeah, someone's gonna' need to tell me where chris lives then...

joe on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 2:03 PM

best baseball game ever:

http://www.deadspin.com/sports/base...-row-202579.php

joe on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 2:03 PM

We should probably run it by Chris before we crash his place

Bigworm on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 2:05 PM

Joe - we could but that really isn't Natty Sci's style.

joe on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 2:07 PM

It wouldn't really be natty sci style if wes showed up

douglas on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 2:07 PM

no no no, it's natty sci style for him to show up, it's just not natty sci style for him to make it to 12am

douglas on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 2:10 PM

it never gets old

joe on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 2:12 PM

Our jokes never do

Brock on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 2:25 PM

Since Adrian is bailing, I'm sure Michelle wouldn't mind filling his place... which is a good replacement since she can drink more than him. I'll just have to tell her to remind me about spilling Big Red on my pants 100 times during the night, and we won't even know Adrian's not there... except for the making out with chicks you just lied to... or.... wait... she can do that too, I wouldn't mind.

adrian on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 2:27 PM

Yeah Yeah Brock. I was planning on going tonight anyways. Someone just give me a call and tell me where to meet at.

adrian on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 2:28 PM

Weird Al's video of riding dirty...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-xEzGIuY7kw

joe on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 2:29 PM

The classic Goodloe move, just give me a call and I'll come out.

adrian on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 2:33 PM

I don't call bitches...bitches call me.

Anyways, so i went to texas road house for lunch and i forgot that my gatorade was in the freezer. I get back and it is frozen completely. So i just had to start another one.

Go St X!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

adrian on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 2:37 PM

Do you guys think the X and Trinity is the second biggest sport rivalry game in kentucky?

Number one would have to be Uk vs UL baksetball.

douglas on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 2:39 PM

i don't know, waggener/ballard was pretty heated when i was in school, i don't recall st. x and trinity ever vandalizing each other's fields...

joe on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 2:45 PM

heated rivalry vs. dumb rednecks?

Marc on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 2:47 PM

I think the biggest rivalry is Westport Middle School vs. Mazeeke Middle School. That is some fierce ass shit.

Marc on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 2:50 PM

Actually Kinder Care vs. Happy Camper Daycare is a bigger rivalry.

adrian on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 2:59 PM

I am pretty sure Male and Manual has the longest rivalry.

Brock on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 3:05 PM

I just picked up Payton from Trinity, place is the usual insanity for the football game. I didn't see anything original though, everyone has the giant sheet in the back of their pickup.

joe on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 3:13 PM

Male manual is over 100 years old.

I saw a Trinity banner hanging on an overpass on I-64 this morning.

Brock on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 3:18 PM

So is there a possibility of going to 4th Street? If so, I need to know, so I can rustle up some dress shoes and a propped collar shirt.

douglas on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 3:18 PM

make it a pink popped collar, and wear two of them, then you can be a douchebag

joe on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 3:21 PM

I talked to Chris earlier and he said he could do Maker's Mark Lounge if people want to.

Jay on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 3:28 PM

Okay, I really don't want to go to fourth street. I'm just saying. The Male/Manual rivalry is older, but it is not intense. I think Manual has only one 1 of the past 25 football games, or something like that. Someone should probably confirm that.

Bigworm on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 3:30 PM

Well much like we need to step it up on the football end, UofL needs to step it up on the basketball end if not, ST. X vs. Trinity will be the top.

adrian on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 3:32 PM

I am with you Jay, i really don't want to go to 4th street.

Bigworm on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 3:32 PM

Actually - I completely disagree. Considering the majority of the people in this state and city didn't attend St. X or Trinity most of the people dont' really care.

I would have to say that Kentucky vs. Louisville in basketball and football are #1 and 2 respectively.

I can handle going out, my hands are currently blue though because I took some blue 36M dye samples today. I'll have to try and wash that shit off before tonight.

Jay on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 3:36 PM

Douglas - how much redbull you got?

douglas on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 3:45 PM

LOTS

joe on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 3:47 PM

I wouldn't rank the UL-UK football game that high. Age does play a large part in rivalry.

Bigworm on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 3:52 PM

Well shit all over the news this city was going crazy when a ranked UofL team beat a bottom dweller in the SEC and the response is.....we beat an SEC team so that looks good on the resume......you would have thought you just won the bourbon bowl via Adam Sandler style.

adrian on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 3:53 PM

What in the fuck are you talking about?

douglas on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 3:55 PM

wes, i do understand what you're talking about, and I do agree, and furthermore, i echo the sentiment that the majority of people in this city share, and that's "who in the fuck cares about st.x and trinity." NOBODY but the soap dropping fags that went to those schools

Bigworm on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 3:55 PM

And the highschool chicks.

Bigworm on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 3:56 PM

If the UK-UofL football game isn't a top in-state rivalry game I don't know what is.

Bigworm on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 3:58 PM

Haha...you said soapdropping fags.

adrian on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 4:03 PM

I believe it is a fallacy to state that all Trinity alumni are soapdropping fags just because Brock went there. You can't generalize based on one gay dude.

adrian on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 4:03 PM

Just kidding brock, don't punch me!

doug is st. x too

adrian on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 4:08 PM

Phil, was an xml string supplied to you to grab your results?

Brock on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 4:08 PM

What's the high school rundown on here?

I think we have like 5-6 Trinity guys, 2-3 St. X guys, a couple of Eastern people, the Goodloes from Fairdale, Jay from Male, and that Waggoner fag.

Phil on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 4:11 PM

then it uses these four different uris to pull return the data

douglas on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 4:28 PM

for what it's worth, stew went to waggener too

jen on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 4:30 PM

marc-- I'll come out tonight. Sorry for my less than perfect attendance as of late.

Brent on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 6:52 PM

Phil, those are pretty impressive stats, good job on keeping up with the running. Are you still being gay and not drinking?

Bigworm on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 7:44 PM

Wow...what really sucks is had to come back down to work to lock back up in order to make sure we had a shipment out.

Bigworm on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 7:49 PM

There is something to be said about the good folks at Clemson. Whether they are trying to recreate the years that they cheated uncontrollably and thus won football games, are wishing they had Steve Spurrier rather than a Bowden boy or kicking other team’s players in the head, Clemson is all class. Thus to get your weekend started, you should enjoy this video of a fat Clemson fan dancing.

Maybe we should pay tribute to him tonight?

Phil on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 8:13 PM

yup, still being pretty gay. I was hoping to run 60 miles this month, but my hips starting hurting pretty bad and my left foot was going numb about 4 miles into a run so I decided to take it easy. Not out of health concerns - my legs can die in a fire for all I care - but because I didn't want to be even slower than I already am in my little flag football league.

I'm going to try to expand that thing out a little bit over the weekend. I bet you guys can't wait!

Phil on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 9:16 PM

a good tip for those of us who have random hookups with strangers:

i just opened my front door to check out the weather. the chair in my living room, a good 10 feet from the door, got wet.

some good ol' wrath of god weather out there

stew on Friday, September 22, 2006 at 11:10 PM

Too bad the weather sucks. Here, it is a perfect night for a beach party.

Jay on Saturday, September 23, 2006 at 10:42 AM

Phil, you have no idea. Joes back yard was flooded 3-4 feet, and his front yard was 1-2 feet. And it was the only house on the block who was flooded. God waited till he had us all in one place to take us out. Joe hates everyone now.

jen on Saturday, September 23, 2006 at 12:10 PM

any time there is a canoe involved... thats a lot of rain.

Phil on Saturday, September 23, 2006 at 1:41 PM

wow, VTech looks like shit. Hopefully the bearcats can pull this game out of their ass

adrian on Saturday, September 23, 2006 at 1:58 PM

Joe, I left your shirt and scrubs on your front door.

Bigworm on Saturday, September 23, 2006 at 2:05 PM

Well Joe this is what I say...if it wasn't at your house you would have never been able to go canoeing in the front yard.....let's be honest....probably would have been a good thing.

Joe just so you know I had a fantastic time, and in case you get to the point to where you have to evacuate you can have a spare bedroom.

stew on Saturday, September 23, 2006 at 3:24 PM

This video is really funny in a burn sort of way. Tara Reid is trying to get into a club and appearantly she doesn't rate to get in; Paris Hilton however, does. I love seeing celebrity bitches have a bad day.

Louisville's shitty ball security...not so much

Bigworm on Saturday, September 23, 2006 at 9:19 PM

Kentucky has been screwed twice already at Florida.

1) Florida was offsides which would have given UK a 1st down (3 and 4) in Florida territory. Result - punt

2) Woodson spikes the ball with 1 second left on the clock. Result takes 2 seconds to do - halftime. This is bullshit.

Phil on Saturday, September 23, 2006 at 10:40 PM

Weather looks nasty at the MSU game. Lets go live to Ollie Williams with the blacky weather report , Ollie?

Who wants this puppy?

Bigworm on Sunday, September 24, 2006 at 10:57 AM

What puppy?

Bigworm on Sunday, September 24, 2006 at 11:02 AM

Brock - how are you feeling today?

adrian on Sunday, September 24, 2006 at 1:06 PM

So last week I busted my ankle on a tree and it has been hurting like shit. So today i decided to do a quick 3k run to see how fast i could run it on a hurt ankle.

During my first mile, my thighs and hamstrings were very tight and my ankle throbbed a little. During the second mile, i grabbed my ankle a few times and had to slow down to almost a walk a certain points.

At the end of the run I still put up a 14 minute 3k. I just thought that was funny.

stew on Sunday, September 24, 2006 at 1:59 PM

joe on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 8:33 AM

To everyone that suited up and went into the water Friday night, thanks. Our efforts to save my house I'm saying were a success. Everything is cleaned up and there isn't any damage. The odor of gasoline and ass has been eliminated from my house as well. This weekend I will be in Chicago so my house will be quarantined. I'm still saying it ws a coincidence that we had 20 people over when it flooded and God doesn't actually hate us and he wasn't trying to wipe out Natty Sci. You can't stop us, you can only hope to contain us.

Bigworm on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 9:01 AM

Oh God definately tried, however, like Bmac trying to score he was unsuccessful.

joe on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 9:03 AM

What kind of chick is so classy that she doesn't want to do it om my basement couch with water everywhere? Its just like doing it on a boat.

Bigworm on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 9:04 AM

I mean seriously, and if she wanted a boat a canoe was just down the road.

joe on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 9:06 AM

Touché Worm

Bigworm on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 9:12 AM

Natty Sci....nothing but class.

joe on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 9:24 AM

I was talking to one of my neighbors and he said he was sitting around watching TV and had no clue we were out there. How could you not have seen or heard us out there? Oh ya and Adrian I have your football.

Bigworm on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 9:28 AM

So I am back in the saturated soil of Lexington after an arduous weekend of beach beer-guzzling with heaps of bikini-clad coeds: It’s all downhill from here.

I was only able to catch the game in bits and pieces, but from what I saw Kentucky’s Achilles heel is still depth, or in this case, their lack-there-of. UK came out with, and apologies to Seinfeld, unbridled enthusiasm compared to Florida’s lethargic post UT/pre Bama state. Even after it looked like it was going to be another heartless butchering in the Swamp after Florida’s—whatever the hell that trick play was—But the Cats quickly answered with a well executed drive that, from what I’ve seen, is probably the best series put together on this vaunted Florida defense all season. Unfortunately, the defense then showed why we still have mountains to climb in our trek for SEC respectability. After Florida’s Paris Hilton-easy score to close the half, you just sensed that old fashioned feeling of second half dread. And still, Kentucky bent but refused to break, although accumulating some bad breaks along the way. With an O-Line and defensive unit that were dog-tired and heavily out classed, Kentucky still managed to cling to respectability (and cover the spread) and further showcased the positive direction of the program.

Tim Tebow should be this good, after all, he was made to be a football player. No seriously. I really think he’s a mechanically engineered android programmed for football dominance. That explains why he was home-schooled for so long, he couldn’t be presented to the public until all of the wires were in place, allowing him to perform seemingly human like tasks such as laundry, and text messaging. Other pigskin Terminators include:

Andy Katzemoyer< —this former Ohio St. LB specimen was a physical marvel…however, his creators definitely erred in the “A.I.” aspect, as his intelligence was just that, artificial.

Bo Jackson—An older model, but still the blueprint. Bo was programmed for two sports, and dominated both. Plus, he knew everything. It’s too bad they hadn’t yet developed reliable hip replacements.

Michael Vick—Come on, a QB with a rocket launcher and 4.2 wheels? At least the engineers humanized him enough by not installing aim, and making him susceptible to STD’s.

Ray Lewis —Concocted to hit hard, run fast, and dance like an idiot, Lewis remains one of the best LB’s in the NFL. And to think, he was almost recalled and destroyed after scientists feared that being an accomplice in a double murder might cost them their federal grant.

Bigworm on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 9:31 AM

Shit, if I was still in college I'd be kicked out for plagiarism.

The above was taken from KSR blogged by The Intern. Here is my favorite part of the whole quote that I missed.

"One of my favorite blogs, Everyday Should Be Saturday, is rooted in Gainesville, and has some hilarious post-game banter. My favorite quote: “If games ended at halftime, John L. Smith would be f—— Knute Rockne.” Enjoy."

joe on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 9:34 AM

I was hoping John L would be struck by lightning

Bigworm on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 9:48 AM

I wonder how fast they go.

Shit John L leaving was the best thing for that program.

Bigworm on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 9:49 AM

Does anyone know how Brock's face looked on Saturday or Sunday?

joe on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 9:53 AM

Thank god for tater tots

Bigworm on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 10:08 AM

God bless tater products.

douglas on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 10:09 AM

so bmac apparently spent all day yesterday in cincinnati with that chick, and then stayed and watched desperate housewives with her, and got nothing more than a good night kiss. god bless that special one, god bless him indeed.

joe on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 10:15 AM

I think we might have depressed I need a woman B-Mac back.

Marc on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 10:21 AM

Wow, No wonder the wingman man team of B-mac and Jay was unsuccessful. So you're saying Brock spilt more fluid than B-mac on Friday. It had all the makings of a great party.

Flash flooding, drunk driving (moving the cars), (which led to) car collisions, tons of drinking, a Natty Sci member getting close to getting laid... but not, friends throwing fists, wives leaving husbands behind, etc.

Bigworm on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 10:21 AM

Is this chick Bmac's unicorn? Bmac made the comment the first time her met her (several years ago if I recall correctly) he basically lost his breath. He was captivated by her beauty.

This one could be very interesting fellas...interesting indeed.

Marc on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 10:23 AM

If he is really serious about her maybe he should buy her a movie, I hear White Noises is good for making an awkward gift.

joe on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 10:25 AM

captivated by her beauty is something B-Mac would say. What is even funnier is that I had instructions to not let B-Mac hit on her from Sara. Also, Worm, we should have drowned that guy in the Jeep in the middle of the street.

Bigworm on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 10:27 AM

Yeah especially as he was trying to get out of the Jeep...we should have just helped him.

joe on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 10:30 AM

Is it bad that drunk Natty Sci functions better in emergencies then FEMA?

Bigworm on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 10:32 AM

FEMA is a joke. Yes, Nattysci response is far better than FEMA.

joe on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 10:34 AM

Us: "Where you trying to get to?"
Drunk Driver: "What the fuck do you care?"

We should have drug him out of the car at that point and held his head under water till he cried uncle

joe on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 10:35 AM

I talked to the old lady with the white fence behind me Saturday morning and she thanked us for helping and referred to us at the "Late Night Show"

Marc on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 10:40 AM

Well Natty Sci was started around "science." Practical applications, knowledge, and brainpower just beat a faith-based initiative hands down. We proved it doesn't take brains to save a city (or Joe's House)... just booze.

Bigworm on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 10:42 AM

I completely agree Joe. For some reason talking smack to 2 guys waist deep in water while being completely intoxicated trying to drive your car through the 3 feet of water was a good idea for that moron. The only satisfaction we can take from that is the fact we were clapping for Ace (named for the ambiguously gay duo of Gary and Ace) and telling him way to go as his car stalled.

The only way that night could have been better is if he was driving a firebird.

adrian on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 10:44 AM

I think i need a new cell phone...weird! Also all of my credit cards and debit card were stuck to the leather of my wallet. Hopefully they are not ruined. I think we need to invent the natty sci cellphone (one that is waterproof) for those moments when drunk doctors decide to tackle people in the water.

joe on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 10:49 AM

I need to invent a home drunk tank too. When someone passes out lock them in it.

Bigworm on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 10:50 AM

I think these would all be good inventions. For the drunk tank we can probably get get a chair and duct tape.

joe on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 10:51 AM

The key to the drunk tank is the drainage and to make it easily cleanable

Bigworm on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 10:53 AM

Drunk Tank no problem.

And if you really want to contain them just outfit it with razor wire.

Phil on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 11:21 AM

seems like I missed some adventures on Friday, huh?

Joanna on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 11:25 AM

I don't know how much we should make light of car collisions. Dents aren't a good thing.

Marc on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 11:25 AM

Yes, Phil. It is very safe to say to you missed a bizarre, hilarious, scary, crazy, water-logged, Brock-bleeding, car-moving, Bmac-not-scoring, neighbor-drowning, Joe-getting-pissed, good ole drinking kind of time.

douglas on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 11:28 AM

anytime you can canoe down your driveway is a good night. i also got in some good practice for halloween night as my new alter ego, the Ultimate Warrior himself....

joe on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 11:31 AM

I don't care if a miata floats away, I was more worried about Joanna's car, my truck, and Greg's 60 something Mercedes. Fuck the Miata just get that piece of shit out of the way for cars we care about.

Bigworm on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 11:31 AM

First of all, why was Jen driving anyone's car?

Wasn't she drunk?

Car collisions are a bad thing, however, the worst part is that Chris could have been seriouisly injured if he was pinned behind that car. I am pretty sure his hand was pinned for a short period of time....his only saving grace was he was pretty drunk so I am sure he didn't feel it.

Bigworm on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 11:32 AM

Julies car get the dent.

douglas on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 11:36 AM

wait, cars got bumped? i didn't know this? hell my drunk ass was able to move my car down the street in water without hitting anything

joe on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 11:37 AM

Yep, Jen backed Jays car into Julie's car.

Bigworm on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 11:38 AM

Yeah I am pretty sure Jen was doing her Ricky Bobby impersonation and trying to go fast. Not sure if she realized how far she pushed down on the accelerator or not, but regardless she probably shouldn't have been driving.

joe on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 11:40 AM

for those that don't know the gas is the one on the right

douglas on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 11:41 AM

neither should i have, but that's the fun part

joe on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 11:43 AM

Greg shouldn't have either, he clipped the side of my garage.

douglas on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 11:46 AM

but seriously, how can you expect a drunk guy like myself to turn down an opportunity to drive in 3 feet of water? Is it possible to say no to that?

Bigworm on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 11:48 AM

It wasn't 3 feet on Gloucester....I am ball slapping sure it was 3 feet on Winchester though.

joe on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 11:54 AM

had we not cleared the sewer grates on Gloucester it would have been. I tried to clear a grate on Winchester and it was a lost cause.

douglas on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 11:57 AM

my bad you picky fucks, you get my point though

Bigworm on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 11:57 AM

Yeah the whirlpool was pretty strong next to your house, I know first hand on my canoeing experience.

joe on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 11:58 AM

That was awesome when you sat in the canoe in the whirlpool spinning

Bigworm on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 11:59 AM

Eventually I lost my balance and capsized.

Can you capsize in 20 inches of water????

Marc on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 12:00 PM

I didn't realize Chris was drunk when I let him move my car. He seemed well enough, but I guess flash floods makes Natty Sci seem to sober and do what needs to be done. But when I left my car was touching the car in front of me, but no damage. I think while driving it Chris must of been thinking, "little closer, little closer, litt... [bump] That's good."

Bigworm on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 12:02 PM

This is why I park my car a little farther down the road...away from the crazies...I mean Natty Sci drunk drivers moving cars in a flood...I mean....yeah the crazies.

Bigworm on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 12:03 PM

Lunch time bitches.

Douglas - ultimate warrior impersonation was awesome for the record.

Marc on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 12:05 PM

I missed the Ultimate Warrior impersonation. Was it is the water? I mean you really need a ring and especially ropes to shake to do a great Ultimate Warrior impersonation.

douglas on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 12:08 PM

yeah, i was just warming it up for halloween, i think i scared bmac though, i stared him down for literally ten minutes straight with the warrior face. at first he was laughing, and then after awhile he kinda stopped laughing, and then i guess he thought it was getting awkward, and then he just tried to ignore me, but i wouldn't let him, and then i started following him around everywhere, and doing that heavy breathing the warrior does, and then the arm pumps. i can't wait until halloween when i'm jumping off the top rope (i.e. whatever couch i'm close to)

douglas on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 12:12 PM

by the way, someone is getting bodyslammed come halloween, it's inevitable. the warrior shows no mercy!

joe on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 12:42 PM

Mercy is for the weak

adrian on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 12:46 PM

"Strike fast, strike hard, no mercy sir!"

adrian on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 1:07 PM

I am eating the Blazin Buffalo & Ranch doritos and i figured my pussy ass couldn't handle them. They are really not hot at all.

Bigworm on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 2:05 PM

Joe - has was Chris feeling that next day? Did he remember most of everything?

joe on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 2:07 PM

He was fine and sounds like he remembers everything

Phil on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 2:40 PM

take a look at the 2:10pm comment on the floods:
http://www.courier-journal.com/apps.../1008#storychat

i couldn't help myself. I'm the asshole making fun of the religious at 2:47

joe on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 2:50 PM

Those are all some good comments

douglas on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 2:59 PM

that's real good stuff, phil

adrian on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 2:59 PM

Brock, next time you are in town, try to remember to bring your mountain bike and we will ride waverly.

joe on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 3:07 PM

we need to get 5 of us and go up to Seneca park and take over the basketball courts. Chris and I went up there yesterday and joined in a 5 on 5 game with 2 other white guys and we tore up some high school kids. We won 3 straight games then Chris and I left. The teams we beat were describing us as him and those 4 white dudes. It was like Greece beating the US. We had solid passes, good footwork and lots of screens. We really had no excuse playing or winning.

douglas on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 3:09 PM

i love white boy basketball, it's so pure

joe on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 3:22 PM

Especially when I trip over my own feet and miss layups

douglas on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 3:31 PM

personally, i love the goggles, short shorts, and high socks.

jen on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 3:43 PM

I wasnt drunk--yet. It was just an Austin Powers maneuver that works better in the movies. That, and I'm a terrible driver. Yeah, who let me drive?

The irony that Jay's bumper got smashed the next day by a sober chick is the best though. That leads me to the conclusion that God just wanted Jay's car to be messed up. I had no control over that.

joe on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 3:47 PM

Ummmm, Sara's car is the one that got messed up that night, did you stop to think about that? See the jokes about God hating us were funny because we found out there wasn't any damage to my house. Had there been damage and you made jokes you all would have been dead.

douglas on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 3:53 PM

i really don't think God minds us b/c he knows fully well that he's never going to have to deal with us, we're all going to be Satan's problem, not his.

Phil on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 4:17 PM

i went ahead and created a new post:
http://www.nattysci.com/displaypost.aspx?post=98

Bigworm on Monday, September 25, 2006 at 4:24 PM

Exactly Joe - had your house really been in danger I don't think anyone would have been making those jokes. If so, that is just poor form.
