Now that I think about it I did the same thing when it hit the 2s a few years back...I posted prices in the 1s. This happened on this very forum!

I'm pretty sure I've done it before too, and probably in this thread. :doh1:

And Archer is amazing. Watched the first season last year, but don't have TV now so I'm missing all the new stuff. Too lazy to see if the episodes are online.

Johnny Bench called ...

Isn't the reason NYC has the best bagels the tap water? I remember seeing or hearing that somewhere. The tap water in Manhattan and Brooklyn have the perfect pH balance, hardness/softness or whatever and places around the world invest tons of money in trying to duplicate it but can't quite do it. Something like that.

It's possible. I remember seeing on Food Network once this story about a pizza parlor owner in Phoenix who was originally from NYC and had a water system built for his shop that made the water come out like NYC water. The theory, of course, was that the secret to the crust was in the water, just like with the bagels.

Sounds about right to me, so we are paying well over double for our fuel.

And you have been for many, many years. The trade-off being, though, that mass transit is a lot better over there and you don't need cars as much. We here in the States are too damn addicted to our cars, but on the flip side, mass transit sucks in most places.

On the way back to Wake from spring break (which I spent at home), the friend that I drove with brought two dozen bagels from home because "the bagels everywhere else suck ass." :lol: Greatest luggage ever.

Checking weather, what more reliable NOAA or AccuWeather.

NOAA's snow maps always seem a bit overboard.

They're both way better than weather.com, which is pretty much the worst. I prefer weather.gov (NOAA) over accuweather just because they offer more info, but they're both usually fairly reliable IMO.

How's that been working for you?

Weatherbug is spyware.

I love New Jersey, I love being from New Jersey, but I've never been the biggest fan of the weather. Snow in March? Eww.

Meanwhile, here in North Carolina, it's like 75 and sunny. I love the south's weather, this is why I came down here for college.

It's already in the 80s down here in Tejas.

Meanwhile, it's gonna start snowing in a couple hours here in the Albany area. It's already started west of here. They're expecting 2-5 inches locally, more to the south.

Snow after all this warm weather is crazy.

The weather down there is pretty sweet. When I lived in Fayetteville, I played golf on Christmas Eve and drove my motorcycle in to work on Christmas Day.

... and we ended up getting lucky, the dry air pushed the storm further south and we didn't get anything. I heard you guys down in Jersey got some weather right out of a Lewis Black routine, though.

I would just like to say that life always finds a way of f**king with you when you least expect it.

That is all.

So Rowdy, were you the guy that won the $300+ million?

You wanna talk about weather? I've been either sunburned or tan every day since January.

I wish. But no, I don't work for the state (rumor has it it was a pool of 7 state employees) and I don't live or work in downtown Albany.

I'm kinda worried, though; this is the third big jackpot win in the area in the last few months. We had a $48.8M Powerball winner in Wilton (between Saratoga and Glens Falls) on Christmas Day and a $122M Powerball winner in Catskill in January. I'm wondering if we've used up our lotto luck for the foreseeable future.

Probably Rowdy, three years ago we had two big winners at the Jersey shore and the big prizes have never been won in NJ since.

To be, or not to be--that is the question:

Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer

The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune

Or to take arms against a sea of troubles

And by opposing end them. To die, to sleep--

No more--and by a sleep to say we end

The heartache, and the thousand natural shocks

That flesh is heir to. 'Tis a consummation

Devoutly to be wished. To die, to sleep--

To sleep--perchance to dream: ay, there's the rub,

For in that sleep of death what dreams may come

When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,

Must give us pause. There's the respect

That makes calamity of so long life.

For who would bear the whips and scorns of time,

Th' oppressor's wrong, the proud man's contumely

The pangs of despised love, the law's delay,

The insolence of office, and the spurns

That patient merit of th' unworthy takes,

When he himself might his quietus make

With a bare bodkin? Who would fardels bear,

To grunt and sweat under a weary life,

But that the dread of something after death,

The undiscovered country, from whose bourn

No traveller returns, puzzles the will,

And makes us rather bear those ills we have

Than fly to others that we know not of?

Thus conscience does make cowards of us all,

And thus the native hue of resolution

Is sicklied o'er with the pale cast of thought,

And enterprise of great pitch and moment

With this regard their currents turn awry

And lose the name of action. -- Soft you now,

The fair Ophelia! -- Nymph, in thy orisons

Be all my sins remembered.

What a load of crap.
