re: I Kid You Not - Geographic Illiteracy - AUFANATL
My mom nicknamed one of my uncle's girlfriends "Vermont" because one time they took roadtrip vacation through New England and she asked what state Vermont was in. Also, I met a girl from Wales once. I said or asked her something that indicated I knew a few things about her country. She was im...

re: How will the nfl spin the upcoming ratings drop?? - AUFANATL
[quote]95% of NFL games are on broadcast television[/quote] That's not really true. There are 16 games a week. You get 4 games on your regional broadcast, I game on NFL network, 1 game on ESPN and 10 games on Sunday Ticket or some other subscription service. It's not cheap to be an NFL fan...

re: What’s something in a movie that didn’t bother you at the time but looking back does - AUFANATL
[quote]He's still a living person living his dream and with the girl of his dreams[/quote] I disagree. If you have no memories of your previous life, you are not living. Jarrett got to keep adding to his memories and experiences in his own body. Ergo, Jarrett didn't die, he simply got knocked ...

re: What’s something in a movie that didn’t bother you at the time but looking back does - AUFANATL
I like the movie but can't stand the ending to Heaven Can Wait (1978). Essentially Warren Beatty's character has his entire soul and consciousness disappear while the backup QB who died gets to keep on living (and presumably banging J. Christie). Beatty doesn't even get to chill out in heaven, h...

re: Is there scientific proof that masks are effective - AUFANATL
There is a separate problem with masks as well. We need people who test positive to stay home, NEVER leave their house and strictly isolate themselves as much as they can. Touting the benefits of mask wearing entices these people who know they are infected and contagious to leave their home an...

re: Remember when cops in Minneapoilis told people to give up their stuff to criminals? - AUFANATL
You can be charitable and assume "complexion" includes race. "Officer, the suspect was very tan... I mean an extremely dark tan. It's almost as if thousands of generations of his ancestors had lived in equatorial climates in which their skin evolved to be permanently infused with excess melani...

re: Trump must HOLD Wisconsin, Michigan or Pennsylvania to win. Win 1/3 - AUFANATL
There is actually a realistic way for him to win without these states: he could flip New Hampshire and Nevada (giving him a total of 270 with Maine's republican district). Flipping those two states is not the longshot people likely think it is. The Demographics in Nevada have shifted during...

In the late 70s, Auburn ran the wishbone with Joe Cribbs, James Brooks and William Andrews in the same backfield. All three of those guys made NFL All Pro. ...

re: What's the cheapest thing you've ever seen a wealthy person do? - AUFANATL
When I was a kid, we had extended family in town and Grandpa took us all out to dinner. There was a 10 year old boy who lived a few houses down the street who happened to be playing at our house when we all went out to eat so he was invited to come along. When we were done eating Grandpa asked f...

re: Glacier NP hikers encounter wildlife fun - AUFANATL
It wasn't that trail, but a similar portion on the Grinell Glacier Trail where a few years ago a guy and his daughter were mauled by Grizzly. Both of them had to jump off the cliff to a ledge below to avoid being eaten alive. And the father (after listening to his daughter being attacked) had to...

re: Announcement at Restaurant re: someones last meal alive - AUFANATL
Some states have legalized euthenasia. If you decide to give up the fight against cancer or something similar, they give you a pill you can take that will end your life. There is also a clinic in Switzerland where Americans can go, pay a hefty fee, and be euthenized. It would be weird to cele...

re: A 9-year-old who died of coronavirus had no known underlying health issues, family says - AUFANATL
Sounds like this might be heat stroke. High fever plus 100 degree weather plus not in a hospital setting with trained medical personnel making decisions (although sending her home is looking like a bad decision in hindsight). Regardless, with a large enough sample size, some healthy young peop...

re: Gun buys up 95%, ammo 139%, - AUFANATL
[quote]That’s not how it’s handled now. If you are led away in handcuffs, or if you spend any time detained, it is due to you having issues other than a handgun in the TSA line. Most can, if they have time, purchase a bag approved by TSA and check their gun through, and get on your flight. There is ...

re: Gun buys up 95%, ammo 139%, - AUFANATL
A couple of weeks ago I took a plane flight. Going through TSA security there was a cute 20 year old girl in front of me and a cute 20 year old girl behind me. As our bags were going through the scanner machine, they suddenly stopped the conveyor belt and shut down the entrance and exit to the ...

re: Reports of "bodies everywhere" after a funeral in Chicago turns into massive gun battle - AUFANATL
How many people do you think will get shot at the funerals for the people who were shot at this funeral? It's like Chicago's annual Summer of Gunfire festival was feeling jealous of all the attention that Covid was getting so they decided to get in on some of that "exponential growth". ...
