    Do you think there's anyone out there that loves their job as much as Tim Kurkjian? That guy is just living his dream

    I'm sure Guy loves his job, but I'm guessing sometimes he wish he didn't have to roll out looking for the best diners, drive-in, and dives.

    I don't think Tim Kurkjian would ever turn down the opportunity to watch a live baseball game and talk baseball for 3+ hours.

    I'm just saying Guy wouldn't miss Hunter's birthday or something.

    Kurkjian would leave and send his kid a postcard from Wrigley or something.

    Wow. That's some crazy editing technology. The responses to that tweet are great and a lot of them make a good point. This tech is not going to be good for us. People get so manipulated by "fake news" the way it is. Baby boomers are going to lose their fucking minds sharing shit all over Facebook once someone makes one of these of a politician saying crazy shit.

    couple really important thoughts today:

    I'd like to think we are at a point in society/marketing where we don't need to list the price at $49.99 anymore. I realize the psychological aspect of 50 vs 49, but still. I don't think I've eaten at a restaurant in a while that did the .99 thing.

    At what amount do you walk away before getting your coin change at a register (ie at a gas station item is $9.45 and you hand them a $10)? Let them keep anything less than a quarter?

    If I'm running some small product business, I'm rounding everything up/down in effort to avoid dealing with any coins. Although I'm probably not foreseeing problems with that.

    I've seen plenty of places still doing .99 on menus, but I've also seen increased flat numbers or very exact prices like 12.29 or something like that.

    I always get my change, short of it being a takeout order or a couple pennies.

    I always get the change back, but drop small coins in the dish usually.

    I also try to have exact coins to make the change all paper. Also use dollar bills to get to a round bill.

    my clinic is all flat prices. services aren’t taxed but the supplements and products are, but the sales tax is included in the listed price

    for instance, bottle of probiotics is $30.00 which includes the price + tax

    the whole .99 thing seems so cheap now

    In the south is Mississippi commonly referred to as "The 'Sip" ?

    Mizzou got a commit from there and one of the national rivals guys posted about him and called it The Sip. I got the biggest douche chills.

    Not really no. I can't say I haven't heard it before, but it's certainly not common around Mississippi. Maybe it's different in the state.

    been looking for older & obscure films that aren't available on Netflix or Amazon Prime etc.

    My search showed me some great films, but also - possibly the worst possible collection of films in one place.

    One of my friends at work, his wife is a trust fund baby. He constantly complains that she makes all these frivolous purchases for new hobbies she sticks w for 2 months then nails on.

    Apparently she got a wok stove installed in their kitchen while he was out of town :laugh:

    I made the switch for that same reason and now I hate using my cell phone. So I guess I'm better off?

    For real, it'll depend on your area and T-Mobile's coverage. The coverage map I found showed T-Mobile and Verizon with practically the same coverage for my area. Well, the map was wrong and I constantly drop calls with T-Mobile -- so frequently people ask me what is going on with my phone. It's pretty frustrating. I'll probably switch back to Verizon at some point in the near future.
