  1. Moore deserves a lot of respect for his actions in Vietnam, but I've always been impressed by those relatively few career military men who served in WWII, Korea, and Vietnam. Just born at the right (or wrong) time.
  2. The basement was especially bad in the summer months when students would be piled up in the hallway waiting for the class ahead of them to let out. So hot and damp.
  3. Good. Middleton is gross.
  4. Speaking of James Brown, my favorite music/dance combo of his:
  5. Might be the heir to James Brown
  6. Would eat there every time I'd visit my brother in Fort Worth.
  7. Uneven bar routines are so impressive.
  8. My parents are up this week to see the baby (and me and my wife too I guess). They brought Gambino's! Pecan praline cream cheese and plain.
  9. Yep. I want some. http://winefolly.com/review/champagne-vs-prosecco/
  10. I listened to a podcast recently about the joys of champagne and sparkling wine, and how it shouldn't just be had rarely in celebration. The guy maintained it goes well with any food and should be consumed from a white wine glass like any other wine. Fairly interesting. Made me want to drink some.
  11. Listen to your intuition. If you don't know if your car can make it through the water, it probably can't.
  12. There are probably thousands of little stories like that from people who have encountered James Mattis. Among Marines, he's easily the most beloved living general. He's on par with Chesty Puller in Marines' reverence of him. I've read comments from Marines who served with/under him. He's the kind of man who changes the presence of a room when he walks in, and he's often the most intense man any of them have ever dealt with. He's dedicated his life to the Marine Corps and the country, never marrying or having children. One of my favorite wartime stories of him is during the invasion of Iraq. His division was pushing up toward Baghdad and one of the Marine regiments was stuck outside Nasiriyah. Mattis personally came down, relieved the colonel of his command, and pushed through the city. There's a scene from the HBO show Generation Kill (based on the excellent book): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fTXzcILPPp8
  13. Not a lipreading expert, but Houndstooth Harry looks like he's saying, "We just need to run the bawwwl."
  14. Maybe that's why work was so crazy today. Tough luck for the guys working tomorrow.
  15. I was just thinking of a movie I saw a while back about backup singers. This one part is really good. Mick Jagger and backup singer Merry Clayton tell the story of her part in "Gimme Shelter." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ChONufP0FEs
