    Apple TV is a device and app. Apple TV+ is the streaming service.

    Also just pay for it for a couple months and watch your Ted Lasso then cancel.

    Very good, imo. My favorite fast food tenders. Like 20+ sauces for dipping, some nice hot ones for the wings. Slims sauce and cayenne ranch are my go to. Also enjoy their Buffalo mac and cheese when they do it.

    I just watched a white trash mom run her toddler head first into a door going into a gas station. Made an excellent thud.

    And she definitely came into the gas station to print off a bunch of super enlarged text messages. She must work here. Cool chick.

    It’s gas

    5 & 5 plate, wings tossed in hot, hot/cayenne ranch/honey mustard dipping sauces. You won’t regret it.

    Sides are good, sandwiches are good, and Buffalo Mac is good when in season. I know the owners and they’re good people.

    might go get it now that you mentioned it

    Last had slims a week ago and had a wrap for the first time I think. Was probably my least favorite thing I've had there but it was still good and priced a little lower so I had no complaints. The few times I had Slims salads they were solid too. But I'm with Bert, 5 and 5 with inferno wings is the way to go

    Somebody’s Apple ID ends up getting tied into a whole bunch of things other than just their streaming service. You may have a harder time convincing them to hand it over than a Netflix account.

    Yeah, I’ve enjoyed almost all of apples original programs. See, Mythic Quest, Ted Lasso, the NASA one and the morning show.

    they have a couple other new series coming in fall and they all look good too.

    I watched Mythic Quest and liked it. I am just saying that Ted Lasso alone is worth the price of admission for me. At least for a couple months.

    That show is delightful.

    Listening to local sports radio and Marcus Lattimore is a running backs coach & life coach at a local, super small, college. Currently interviewing him.

    Holy shit am I huge fan now. One of the best interviews I’ve heard. Just incredibly smart, honest, and has a higher purpose.

    I say all of this without being a religious dude. He just came off as one of the guys that NEEDS to be leading young men.

    A) was in for the sex
    B) really liked her and his way with dealing with something like that is to cut it off ASAP so he doesn’t have to go through the song and dance of his own emotions (he feels shitty as fuck but out of sight out of mind type stuff)

    In the song “Fly Like an Eagle” by Steve Miller Band, when he says “Oh, oh there’s a solution” is flying like an eagle to the sea the actual solution? Or is it a reference to an obvious solution that doesn’t need to be spelled out? :idk:

    I've started using "thru" instead of "through" more and more, even in work emails. It doesn't get auto-corrected on my phone or computer.

    Any year of college, easily.

    Sucked losing a year of being able to travel before we have kids, we lost a 3-week trip to SE Asia among other things, but that's something that can (hopefully) be made up for later on. You can't get a do-over for college at that stage of life.

    Yeah you still have some freedom as a college kid. My kids in HS had no freedom, locked in the house and virtual for a large portion of it. That would absolutely blow.
