  1. Funerals & the Culture of Death

    Nothing has changed the funeral business more in recent times than the Great Recession. Someone's lucky to leave $15,000 in their whole estate, let alone that much to pay for an old-fashioned funeral & wake. Cremation and some type of memorial service seems to have become the norm.
  2. Colorado and Washington legalize Marijuana

    28 States now have medical marijuana. 7 States now have legal recreational weed. Veteran groups are one of the strongest advocates of medicinal weed for problems related to PTSD. All of Canada goes legal on July 1st. Yet our gov't can't seem to manage moving marijuana off the schedule 1 drug list so some proper research can be done. You can call that a lot of things my friends, but don't you dare call it freedom or democracy, because it's neither.
  3. Colorado and Washington legalize Marijuana

    **Bump** Just because Rip Van Winkle suddenly woke up in a time warp doesn't mean we have to use 10 year old threads.
  4. What Are You Doing Today?

    I'm going to lay on the couch and hopefully watch Jimmy & the Wolverines get upset by the Gamecocks, because that's what us Spartan fans do !
  5. 2017 NFL Thread

    Caldwell fired. After attending yesterday's game, I was convinced the Lions wouldn't pull the trigger. Full house, no booing, and a decent effort in a meaningless game. Finishing 9-7 and 5-1 in the division could have justified him staying....glad they made the right decision. Caldwell is a good & honorable man who had the players respect, but his game management was down-right scary. We also had only 10 men on the field yet again, but someone was smart enough to call a time-out for a change. That's 5 times in 16 games....unacceptable at the pro level. Congrats to Rick and The Bills ! You've waited far too long. Having traveled there many times, I know how passionate those Bills fans are about their team. Poor Cleveland....having been through that with the Lions, I wouldn't wish that upon any team at any level. I was on a 1-8 H.S. team my Senior year, and that one win at Homecoming made all the difference for us through the years. There's nowhere to go but up !
  6. 2017 NFL "potted plant" Memorial Pool

    First of all, a Happy New Year to everyone ! "Let's hope it's a good one, without any fear" Second....A special thanks to you Strider for running the pool in what became a strange and tedious year. Your efforts and patience this year were greatly appreciated, and beyond the call of duty. Third....congrats to Chase & yourself for the 17th week rally to achieve 1st place ! I never joined the 49ers resurgence in the last few weeks and paid the price. It would have helped my cause if one of the top seeds in the NFL could have scored a point this week ! Fourth, I'm not accepting your theory of self-elimination from a 3-way season tie in any shape or form. Chase & I may have won more weeks, but that just means you did better than us during the tougher weeks when we didn't win (like this week), or there wouldn't be a tie. I also don't think it's fair to use any College games for what was strictly an NFL pool. JMO In short, I've got two older sisters and have kissed them both. It ain't so bad. Thanks again Sean !!
  7. Nasty car wreck 30 years ago. Acute concussion, bruises and bleeding on the brain, and 9 surgeries in 3 years to put my Humpty ass back together again. One of those subsequent surgeries involved 3 saline bags that were placed under my skin and slowly inflated over a period of 8 weeks to stretch out skin in order to cover some open wounds. No long term effects from this incident, and it's hard for me from today's perspective to even imagine I went through this episode. The one thing I'll always remember though is how fragile yet strong the human body can be when it comes to the healing process. It changes you forever.
  8. What's the weather like where you are?

    14 degrees in the Motor City. No bugs and my sinuses are clear. Also have some of nature's artwork hanging from my window....
  9. Strange Places to Do "It"

    After googling a bit, it turns out NASA claims no one has ever had sex in space. This includes a married couple that went up on the shuttle together in 1992. Turns out they got married right before the flight, and NASA was unaware of their change in status. They've since banned married couples on all flights. Both male & female masturbation has occurred on the International Space Station, using the same device used for urination. It turns out the bathroom is the only enclosed place on the ISS or any space vehicle for that matter, that would allow any privacy to do the deed. Scientists also have some serious questions about the human ability to conceive in a weightless environment, as gravity appears to play a major role in that process. Just read an article in NG about an astronaut that spent over a year on the ISS. After returning, his body was still not functioning normally after 6 months back on Earth. No thanks !
  10. Strange Places to Do "It"

    Is this a 10 year anniversary thread ? But while we're on the subject (cough), I'm wondering about space. Has anyone admitted to doing it in a weightless environment ? You can't plan a 3 year mission to Mars without some kind of plan to handle natural human sexuality. It's part of the human experience. I would think being the first couple to do it in space would be an award/honor someone would want to claim. Sex in a weightless environment.....that's something to ponder right there !

  13. Phrases that make your blood boil.

    "You can't have your cake and eat it too"........Hmm...What exactly did you think my plans were for that cake ? "Have a good one !"........ The possibilities are endless, but I'm single, so I usually think dirty thoughts. "Let sleeping dogs lie".......Not on my couch ! "Be careful what you ask for....you might get it." Mind if we worry about that angle AFTER my twisted and selfish wish is granted ? "You opened a can of worms"......Usually said by someone who's never been fishing in their lives. You can tell because worms never come in cans.

    https://www.freep.com/story/sports/high-school/2017/12/26/hayes-detroit-lions-coach-jim-caldwells-hot-seat-tied-racism/982635001/ Just Wow ! I'm sure being caught 4 times during the year without 11 men on the field has nothing to do with it....or going for a 4th and 6 instead of kicking a field goal for the lead on the road when you already failed to score on 3 plays from the 1 yard line....or running on 1st and 2nd down for 4 series in a row against Cinci when you haven't been able to run the ball all year ! Or that you've proven yourself to be a conservative hard-head time and time again with little to no football imagination whatsoever.....or that he couldn't inspire a frog to jump !!.... or that once he's fired not a single NFL team will show any interest in hiring him based on what they've already seen.

    4 degrees & sunny
