Favorite Charities and How Much Do You Set Aside? - PurpleandGold Motown
I'm not trying to start a pissing contest. I'd prefer to use percentages instead of raw numbers, but I would like to know how common it is for people to donate or volunteer and what charities choose to support. Personally, I go local. If I'm not really tight on my money that month, i set aside te...

Girlfriend Gets Lost, Pulls Into a SAFE PLACE, Cops Are Called - PurpleandGold Motown
I've been sick the last three days, and I'm still running a fever. Girlfriends decided she would come and bring me soup and hangout today. That was nice. She get's lost on the way to my house and pulls into the fire station next to the neighborhood's pool. Apparently, she missed the big yellow "Safe...

The True Conservative/Liberal/Progressive Trap - PurpleandGold Motown
Hearing people decry some as not a real conservative or progressive just makes me shake my head. It's just stupid. "True" anything means you're an ideologue. You're Osama bin Laden, Che Guevara and Ayn Rand. You live in a fantasy and try to warp reality to your internal vision and ignore contrad...

Weird Things You Misunderstood (Took Literally) as a Kid - PurpleandGold Motown
I'm talking about sayings or phrases you overheard as a child that your little brain just could not make proper sense of, so you did the best you could. Three come to mind, all when I was around 5 or younger. I thought the Race for President of the United States was a real race, similar to the...

I've Figured Trump Out He's Acting Like His Old Buddy Morton Downey Jr. - PurpleandGold Motown
So, I watched Evocateur of Netflix today. I was too you to remember MDJ in his prime, but his style struck a chord in the country in 1987-89, and Trump was one of his best friends. Trump actually gave him the use of his suite after the alleged skin head attack. Just watching the clips of some of ...

Crunching the BoL Numbers...Imma Scurred! - PurpleandGold Motown
Approximately 93 million able-bodied and minded people between the ages of 16-65. According to the latest census data, there are only 206 million non incarcerated individuals in that age range in the entire US. So, if the Bureau of Labor and the US Census are to be believed that is 45% of the potent...

Changing Your Own Oil to Avoid the Hassle? - PurpleandGold Motown
Who here changes their own oil just to avoid the hassle of dealing with the constant upselling at Express or other quick oil change places? I'm considering it, even though I haven't changed my oil since I sold my Jeep years ago. The last few times I've taken my car in to get serviced, it's taken ...

If the Wage Gap Exists, Why Do Companies Hire Men? - PurpleandGold Motown
So, bull shite studies have been intentionally misinterpreted to say women make 77 cents for every dollar a man makes. I don't believe this is anywhere close to accurate, but for the sake of argument, let's say it is. Why would a company ever hire a man? It seems stupid, right? After all, women ...

John Kasich Is It for Me - PurpleandGold Motown
The more I read about him, the more I feel that he is the only one I could honestly vote for. His list of accomplishments is very impressive (most notably authoring the Balanced Budget Act of 1997). And he's a pragmatist. Yes, he has his principles and beliefs, but he's not going to go against the w...

Opinions on Helen, Georgia - PurpleandGold Motown
Anyone ever been to this place for a quick getaway vacation? [img]http://blog.exploregeorgia.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/helen2.jpg[/img] Apparently, in the 60s this little mountain town was failing so they decided to turn it into a German mountain town to attract tourists. It worked. N...

Changing Hotel Rooms - PurpleandGold Motown
How big of a deal is it to change hotel rooms? I was in the service industry for years and actual managed hostels and hotels in Central America so I try not to be a needy or demanding guest, but whoever stayed here before me was obviously of the dot Indian persuasion and curry bombed the hell out...

Modern campus rape policy built on flawed studies - PurpleandGold Motown
[quote]It is not unheard of for a researcher to repurpose data from other studies. It was, however, unusual to hear a researcher so vague about his subject matter and authorship. The survey instrument used to collect the data on sexual assault was the Abuse Perpetration Inventory. This is a long,...

On the road today and had a code between Mickey Ds or Applebee's for lunch. I opted for Applebees. Sitting at the bar I tried to pull up TD. It was blocked as an inappropriate site. Anyone else been to a public place where TD is inexplicably blocked?...

So, I found out a business acquaintance of mine is a grandmother. She's relatively attractive and 38 years old. I knew she had a daughter,but today when I called her about getting a copy of a contract I heard a baby crying in the background. I made a comment about it and she said, "oh I'm wa...

Will We Ever Get a Decent Love craft Movie? - PurpleandGold Motown
I Del Toro was supposed to do Mountains of Madness but that will probably never happen. Unlike Howard Love craft had been stuck in b-movie hell. Is the source material just too damn dark? It had everything else a big budget horror flick needs. Everyone else from haggard to Howard has had ...

Pat Garret and Billy the Kid French Promotional Stills. - PurpleandGold Motown
I was going through some stuff at my folk's storage building and came across about a dozen promo stills for Pat Garret and Billy the Kid (in French). I don't remember where or how I acquired these. Given that it was probably in my early twenties, I was likely high or took them in trade for somet...

Ellis's Legacy as a A Coach - PurpleandGold Motown
So, if we win tomorrow, Jill Ellis will be the first coach in 16 years to win a Cup. Will that elevate her to an undeserved level in the hierarchy of US coaches? I just don't think she's a good coach, and as much as I want to win, I hate she'll be the one to get us there. Most of the time w...
