And a few of those planes just might be future submarines.

Super Bowl

Postby TimC » Mon Feb 14, 2022 10:33 am

Enjoyed the Super Bowl. Though I didn't care who won (my team was not in it) I am happy for Matty Stafford. He deserved a big win. He's talented, and as humble as NFL QBs come. Matt earned a bit of overdue respect this season.

The halftime show... meh! Mentioned to my kids that it was my least favorite halftime show EVER and this is one response of many that make me wonder where I went wrong with my child rearing skills :thinking:

My kids are well aware that they must never use that "OK Boomer" BS on me.
It's as insulting as they can get. There is no situation in which I consider it funny, I'll put up with a lot, but not that particular epithet.
They've benefited greatly from having a boomer father.
The reason they bought their own homes in their twenties is because Dear Old Privileged Boomer Dad worked his arse off, saved some money and gifted them their house deposits and fees.

P.S. Eminem was awesome. But there was a couple times where the mic was nowhere near his mouth and the words were still coming. Lip synching not so synched?

Who knows? Even with the lyrics up on my laptop, I wasn't sure. But that is just about all music for me now.

I get it Mick.

My kids, 30, 33 and 35, all know how fortunate they are. They didn't get their down payments from us but they were put in a position to save their own with our sweat and tears and college support. It's kind of a "term of endearment" with us. Most of the time I get that response when I'm teasing them so maybe an appropriate response from them. I don't take it as a form of disrespect but can see how it might be in certain circumstances.

Modern cell phones cannot survive the regular cycle of a modern washing machine, but modern car keys can.

Irrelevant factoids...?

Some presumably grown men ran around chasing an oddly-shaped leather ball on a very large green carpet Sunday and whilst they were taking a break some other (again... presumably) grown individuals did what many might call singing.

And yet,,,,,,,,when I re-watched Eminem's performance I noticed the volume of his voice didn't reduce when his mic was down around his crotch, leading me to ask, was there even any of what some might call singing at half time?

HotRod Blagojevich, former governor of Illinois, was once… a shoe shine boy.

Two scientifically conducted studies on two separate occasions. In some circles I believe the term would be "untrainable". :NC
