    Stumbled upon a stray cat that got fucked up in a cat fight near my brother's apartment

    Had like 3 scratches on its face and looked pretty rough

    Told my brother and he just died laughing, because he heard a cat fight from his patio the night before and the neighbor below him yelled out "oh lawd they fightin!"

    Felt bad for the cat, but it probably would've made me regret attempting to clean its wounds. Those cats are hood.

    I’ve always been sentimental and emotional, but it’s getting heavier as I get older. Today I was in Home Depot and The Living Years came on by Mike + The Mechanics — my eyes welled up and I got really close to crying. I started doing the squinty eyes, pretend to be interested in a random area, head darting around move. That fucking chorus.

    Coroner should not be an elected position. It should definitely not be a political position. The democratic candidate in Chatham county has a Business Degree from Savannah Tech, owns a funeral home, and is a licensed mortician. The republican candidate is an MD and the current deputy coroner. I don't want to vote for the republican candidate but he's clearly the better candidate.

    Who do you think would fare better: telling a group of healthy people that they were terminally ill, or sick people that they were healthy?

    Listening to a pod where this Doctor tells healthy people they are terminally ill with cancer and put them on chemo. It’s insane.

    Bettor Loses $1 Million Due To A Stat Correction After The Rams-Bears Game
    By Bill Galluccio

    October 27, 2020

    One unlucky bettor lost out on a million-dollar prize after a post-game stat correction knocked them out of the top spot in a daily fantasy tournament on Draftkings. The bettor, identified as robocles in a tweet by The Action Network, seemed to make all the right picks, taking Jared Goff, Cooper Kupp, Gerald Everett, Josh Reynolds, and the defense for both the Los Angeles Rams and the Chicago Bears.

    After the Monday Night Football game went final with the Rams picking up a 24-10 victory, robocles found themselves sitting in first place, ready to claim the one million dollar prize. Unfortunately, a stat correction took away a sack from the Bears and one point away from robocles. That was enough to bump them from the top spot all the way down to sixth place. As a result, their winnings dropped to a measly $3,078.94.

    At least one person thinks that robocles got a raw deal.

    "Reviewing the play, there needs to be a stat correction for the stat correction," Dan McLellan wrote on Twitter.


    In order for a defender to be credited with a sack, the quarterback must intend to throw a forward pass on the play. If the play is a designed quarterback run, and the quarterback goes down behind the line of scrimmage, it is considered a tackle for a loss. On the play in question, Goff fakes the handoff to the running back and then comes under immediate pressure. He never gets set to pass and tries to run upfield and salvage the play before he is taken down. If it is unclear, statisticians will look at the blocking scheme and play design to determine the play's intent.

    In this case, it appears that the statisticians believed Goff never intended to throw the ball, so they changed to play from a sack to a tackle for a loss.

    Their decision ended up costing one unlucky bettor $996,921.06

    I just saw a post on reddit with a TI-83 calculator. Sitting there looking at it, what immediately came into my head was the combination of keys "2nd, +, 7, 1, 2, Enter" which I remember doing about a billion times, but have no clue what it did. Does anyone else remember? It's driving me nuts.

    Obviously something to do with the memory based on the pic.

    I remember (not the actual method, just the ability)there was a way to save things that wouldn’t be erased so everyone would save math formulas and things and even if the teacher did a reset to the calculator, they’d still be there

    Also remember the games and cord to share the games. Think there was a cave helicopter one

    No, it was tried but then armadillos were blamed for culture appropriation so the saying was changed back to playing possum. Some people are still mad at armadillos playing possum to this very day for that same reason.

    I used mine all thru grad school. Used it to create a note for a test with the formulas for a test we were supposed to have memorized. Professor refused to cave in despite the formulas being overly complex and absurd to have memorized in the first place. So quite a lot of people did that.

    Why are there still so many singing/judging shows and are they ever going to stop? I used to love American Idol but that was like 20 years ago.

    just put on the tv and “I can see your voice” is on. Looks like a knockoff masked singer. What the heck how are we not tired of this yet
