The U in Life – taking stock

Happiness is approximately U-shaped through the life course; mental distress tends to reach a maximum in middle age. Our regression equations allow for confounding influences including income, education and marriage upon happiness and life satisfaction. The empirical findings should thus be read as tracing out an age U-shape in ceteris paribus well-being . In some nations, that U-shape holds in raw data; in other countries it is necessary to use multiple regression methods. Our main conclusion is meant as a broad characterization of the data, and should be kept in perspective. We have not presented detailed findings from the fitting of high-order polynomials. There is, for example, a little evidence from our non-parametric work for a further flattening, and a turn down, towards the end of a person’s life.” –

  1. When you’re a kid you’re clueless. When you’re getting on in years you’ve largely stopped giving a fcuk. The middle part bites the wax tadpole.

    There, summed up that Dartmouth study in a short paragraph plus or minus a polynomial or two

  2. That chick was quite annoying. May I offer a better version?

  3. ww

  4. Going to Lesbianville today.

  5. So … I pull out of the driveway and just as I’m starting to take the kids to school, WHO gets pulled over by the cops right in front of my house?

    Yep. Floppy hair.

    I don’t know why he was down by us. I was suspicious but Erin wasn’t in the car (she had JUST gotten picked up by a friend – I tracked her phone to double check she wasn’t in his car.)

    Trust, but verify.

  6. 12 strong was a good movie.

    Raining here right now, but it’s only suppose to be on /off until noonish.

  7. That could be considered stalkerish. Keep an eye on that one.

  8. Floppy hair just passed into creepy territory. Lapeer Creek is entering another phase.

  9. Eh, or he’s got a new piece of ass who lives south of us.

    I’m pretty sure that’s why she’s refused to date him. He claims all the nooky he’s been getting since they broke up (she hears the stories) didn’t mean anything. She thinks it’s gross. It’s also why she won’t date another guy who’s asked her out several times – who is one of her best friends. She’s turned off by the man-whore thing.

  10. I liked 12 Strong, too. Kind of a twist on the Shock and Awe thing.

  11. The weird thing is that her three best friends are super good friends with floppy hair. The three guys just showed up here last night and wanted to hang out on the lake. One is the man whore. the other is snowflake. the third has a girlfriend, but he basically follows Erin around at school.

    Pretty sure That^ situation is why so many girls don’t like her. Call her names. Couple more weeks and high school is over.

  12. He is stalking her.

  13. he doesn’t need to stalk her. His best friends can tell him what she’s doing. I’m guessing he was picking someone up.

  14. He doesn’t need to stalk her.

    He’s still stalking her.

  15. Is she graduating?

  16. Graduating and looking for a new place to live, if the rumors are true.

  17. If Car in doesn’t kill her before then.

  18. Hopefully. It’s been a year. She has to finish up some online math, and as long as she gets that done, we’re good.

  19. What about her senior prom? Is she skipping that?

  20. A soccer coach called her last week and still wants her. I think I need all the hostage prayers to bring this about.

  21. Senior prom is this weekend. She’s going with a friend (female).

  22. A bunch of her friends aren’t going, and she’s rather salty about it.

  23. My mom’s full frontal attack on Israel and trump’s embassy is … embarrassing.

  24. A soccer coach called her last week and still wants her. I think I need all the hostage prayers to bring this about.

    College?

    Senior prom is this weekend. She’s going with a friend (female).

    Ah, so she’s switching to softball…

  25. Is Erin 18 yet?
    I know she can’t carry concealed yet, but at 18 she can legally open carry. I would suggest she start learning today. Range time, NRA classes, more range time etc.
    Sorry, but it is what’s called for.

  26. Yep, college soccer coach.

    h, so she’s switching to softball…

    She has enough trouble with female FRIENDS. She could never date one.

  27. My road is a major one. Him driving down it doesn’t mean stalking. He’s driving someone to school.

  28. The tent and binoculars didn’t tip you off?

  29. *Floppy appears outside Erin’s window*

    *Holds up a boombox, presses play*

    Car in: Her bedroom is on the other side, dipshit! And for cripes sake, find some decent music to play, not that Peter Gabriel crap!

  30. So, Carin’s mom is a joo hater?

  31. Does she think Wisconsin is a city?

  32. Probably. It’s in flyover country/Jesusland.

  33. Carin, I’ll pray the soccer coach makes a full offer!! How great would that be? None of this bullshit 25-50% tuition where you still go into debt on remainder tuition and room and board (like my daughter’s boyfriend did. Got injured, didn’t graduate and now has school debt!).

  34. It’s 100% tuition. It’s her grades we’re worried about.

  35. What school?

  36. Is a small college in Michigan

  37. https://www.cleary.edu/

  38. HS grades or future college grades?

    Just pick a tit major where there’s minimal stress or homework and get 4 years of “studying” done and walk away credentialed. No one cares if she did an Honor’s English Thesis except her grad school professors and that’s probably a non-concern from what you’re saying

  39. high school grades. They have hospitality and culinary stuff there. That would be good for her. it’s mostly a business school.

  40. My niece will end up with a full boat scholarship for softball.
    I used to think my sister was dumb for all the effort and expense of driving her all around the East Coast to games & tournaments, but now I get it. Free college.
    She is good enough to be sought after by big schools now.

  41. Is she a cooking type, or just the service end?

  42. She’s a cooking type, but we’ve thought that restaurant, etc , in some field might be something she enjoys. She likes to cook, and she’s so far good in service (hostessing). Maybe small a shop? I dunno. It’s a start.

  43. Small colleges are ideal.

    My graduating class in ’86 was something like 650 students.

  44. I think it would be perfect for her. It’s not far either.

  45. Just pick a tit major where there’s minimal stress or homework and get 4 years of “studying” done and walk away credentialed. No one cares if she did an Honor’s English Thesis except her grad school professors and that’s probably a non-concern from what you’re saying

    —-

    Jimbro nailed it!

  46. Ok, Pat lost something, and I’ve looked everywhere. it’s *not* here. it’s probably at work.

    He doesn’t believe me. I swear I remember “finding” it for him last summer and he took it to work. (It’s a folder with legal documents in it).

    I’m going to make another cup of coffee and make one more pass at this, but it’s really no where.

    On the positive side, I’ve been throwing shit away as I search.

  47. Maybe open a restaurant in the basement, to cook for her friends. Since they are all male, hot dogs and cheeseburgers will be the only things on the menu.

  48. you’re an idea man, J’ames. But her friends are broke.

  49. Can’t you get an EBT machine?

  50. I suspect our moms may get along, Car in. Not sure what my mom’s take on the Embassy is, but I did talk to last night about local issues and I ..can’t….even….
    My anxiety levels are still high this morning.

  51. I should have you come over to look for the folder with my original social security card, birth certificate pages* & passport info. I haven’t been able to put hands on it in months.
    You’ll never find it, but my house could use a good spring cleaning.

    *it’s not one piece of paper. It’s like five pages of US Navy documentation of bullshit.

  52. LOL. Ok. I swear, I can’t find it. It’s not here. I’m pretty sure he took it to work.

  53. If he had asked ME to put it somewhere, I’d have it right now. I’m not the most organized person in the world, but I usually have a handle on where most shit is. I have a file for papers, and the shelves above my computer store my important stuff.

    Not PILES and PILES of crap. Just the important stuff.

  54. Feel sorry for the babies/kids that died in Gaza yesterday. But ZERO effs given for the deaths in general. Bringing a kid to a RIOT zone tells me exactly how much you value life…even your child’s.

    So “Palestinians” GFUs.

  55. Mare, exactly. It’s like bringing your kids to a drug buy.

    They do that shit on purpose.They don’t value life, or their children, as we do.

  56. Death cult.

  57. They brought them in as props. Plus, how many actually died, and how many were just made to look like they died.

  58. My mom was laughing about the one case against Greitens getting tossed because the prosecutor is a dirty POS…and a host of other things of the rayciss variety. Then laments how corrupt/broke St. Louis has become. How they’re trying to take over the police fund..and the county to steal the money.

    Me: Well look who’s running the place.

    Her: *insert racial slur here* and all those f*cking white people running around causing shit, you know….what are they called?

    Me: Democrats

    Her: No, those activists causing shit. They run around in groups with those f*cking *racial slur here*.

    Me: *rubs face* They aren’t the only ones voting for democrats to run the place. Someone is voting for these people.

    Her: *insert racial slur here*

    Round and round we went. She voted democrat when she lived in the city and she continues to vote democrat where she lives now. And when her county goes to shit, she will never question what part those people she voted for, or herself, had in it.

    But I was the racist whose mentals was questions over my dislike of obama. Until he showed his hate for law enforcement. And then it was because he was a f*cking *insert racial slur here*, and not because democrat. They neatly ignore the beast in the room.

  59. They brought them in as props. Plus, how many actually died, and how many were just made to look like they died.

    Pallywood.

  60. Man, I know it’s the D talking, but I’m honestly not sure I remember what “happy” is like anymore.

  61. Crap, this past week was intense with all the delayed tree pollen. By 30 days. There was still a coating of green on everything when some rained moved through yesterday.
    Today, the mold count has spiked, on top of the emergence of the delayed grass pollens…on top of the slowly waining tree pollens.

    My guts are not very happy right now.

  62. BroCavil, did you ever think of rescuing a dog from the pound to help with your rescue?

    I really wish I could have a cat or dog but I’m seriously allergic. Which sucks to no end.
    Some days it’s a struggle, but watching the birds in my yard or the colors/scents of flowers bring me some peace. Or seeking out eagle cams or youtubing happy things. Or I sometimes reach back to what made me happy as a child to have calm. For a little while.

  63. Pollen is really bad this year. The older I get the more it affects me.

    And, BroCav – I will refrain from making the fifteen “the D” & “your Mom” jokes that came to mind because it’s not even noon yet, but try not to hang that curveball right in front of us like that. Too easy.
    Cheer up, dude. Please. Life is beautiful. It’s a gift.

  64. I want a critter so badly, but I’m having enough fun just seeing to keeping myself housed and fed right now I’m not sure I could afford one.

    But yeah, if I can ever get situated in a higher paying gig, I’ll be checking for pound pups in my area. (Kinda high percentage seem to be pit bulls, which figures with the area…)

  65. And now I’m down the Petfinder rabbit hole again. I should block it and Zillow from all my devices, I swear.

  66. Wow.

    I have Tom Wolfe’s book From Bauhaus To Our House on my bookshelf, and was looking at it yesterday.

    Now I just found out he died.

    Weird.

  67. Comment by Car in on May 15, 2018 11:13 am
    ” I’m not the most organized person in the world,..”

    ==========

    She used to have 6 kids, but lost track a few years ago.

  68. I guess I can say that I know the man who killed Tom Wolfe

  69. OMG, beasn!
    I almost typed the exact same thing. Puppies are a yuge antidepressant. They are reliant on you to survive, and make you aware that life s a gift. You HAVE to take care of them. I know that Tucker helped pull me out of a hole.
    (Small dogs are easier and much much cheaper to care for btw)

    And, there are hypo-allergenic breeds out there ya know, beasn. Poodles & dachshunds are what come to mind right away…

  70. I read Bonfire Of The Vanities way back when and thought it was brilliant. So long ago, I wonder if I’d feel the same way now.

  71. I’ll keep my fingers crossed that you get a better gig, Bro, so that you can get that critter.
    I’m the same way. A critter comes in my house and depends totally on me, I have to give them the most bestest life they deserve.

    In the meantime, live vicariously through hostage critters, pupster’s puppeh links, eagle cams…

    OR better yet, how about volunteering a little time at a local pound? You socialize the critters and in return, you get puppeh time and a little love in return!

  72. I could never volunteer at a shelter. I would have to bring them all home.

  73. Nah, you gotta draw a line. That would be greedy. You gotta go in with the attitude you are there to socialize them for their forever homes…until you can get yours ready.

  74. Cleaned an old carpet that I’m pretty sure I’m just going to have to throw away. One more chance. It’s fine, because if it’s time to go, that’s one less thing in my garage.

    Erin … @@. Wants to go to Cedar Point with her friends tomorrow. SHE CANNOT MISS ANY MORE SCHOOL. She’s actual on dentitions until the end of the year, and that’s the only way she’s going to prom, etc.

    The thing that is absolutely STUPID about this plan, is that these kids have – including tomorrow – 8 days of school let. EIGHT DAYS. And not a one of them has plans to go to college. YOU’VE GOT PLENTY OF TIME TO GO TO CEDAR POINT.

    I just want to knock all their heads together.

  75. You’d be there to give them happiness in their current/temporary home.

  76. I can say this, I felt more motivated when I was looking after dad. I had to cook, I had to make sure he took his meds, I had to get him where he needed to be. I wish I could have been there more, I worked so he was by himself most of the day. (I worry about that with a pet too, not sure how to go with that.)

  77. I may kill both my kids today. Wait for it.

  78. Take them to a no-kill shelter and trade ’em in for dogs.

  79. When I lived alone for a while between marriages, I had two cats so they wouldn’t be lonely.

  80. I may kill both my kids today. Wait for it.

    Must be nice to have so many spares.

  81. I worked so he was by himself most of the day. (I worry about that with a pet too, not sure how to go with that.)

    Volunteering at a shelter sounds like a better option right now. Also, like leon says…a pair of cats?

  82. I had no idea that Leon was a cat lady. He doesn’t seem like the type.

  83. Former radio host, Allman, doesn’t think they’re going to refile charges against Greitens for this case because the prosecutor would still be called to testify on where all this money came from to go after him.

    Which leaves troubling questions unanswered…which would have been exposed in court. From the alleged victim (her dalliances with others – yes, there allegedly were others), who paid the ex-husband, who was behind paying his lawyer and the circuit atty’s office…..

    By dismissing it, the judge gave that crooked circuit atty an out.

  84. ^^Also a democrat state rep…who set the ‘woman’ up with the circuit atty’s office.
    I didn’t know that. Oh what a tangled web they wove which won’t be exposed now, in court.

  85. Yup, Paliwood, Oscar level performances!

  86. Saw that earlier Jay. We truly live in a time of miracles and wonder.

  87. Can those not on facebook see a facebook page if the setting is public?

  88. I had my older brother’s cat on loan for a few years when his condo board passed a no pets rule. My GF at the time kept her cat there too since she was over so much. They were pretty good cats but I hated dealing with the litter box. GF took hers after the inevitable break up and when I moved for fellowship my brother was by then a homeowner and readily took the cat back.

  89. Is McCain dead yet?

  90. Okay, I’ll post my shit anyway.

    Millions of dollars in carry-on cash in suitcases fly out of the Minneapolis airport every week. But, why? Daycare fraud. Daycare fraud is costing Minnesota taxpayers as much as $100 million a year. According to public records and government sources, most Minnesota daycare fraud is perpetrated by Somali immigrants.

    How does it work? Where does the money go? The story begins at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP), where mysterious suitcases filled with cash have become a common carry-on. On the morning of March 15, a man took a carry-on bag through security that was packed with $1 million in cash. Travelers can do that, as long as they fill out the proper government forms. This happens almost weekly at MSP. The money is usually headed to North Africa, the Middle East, Dubai and points beyond. In 2015, investigators documented $14 million in carry on cash. By 2016, it had mushroomed to $84 million. Then last year, $100 million. So, last year alone, more than $100 million in cash left MSP in carry-on luggage. The same thing is happening in other cities, like Seattle.

  91. Oh hey….you can. Click ‘see more’. Unbelievable.

    Disregard the repeat copy and paste job at the bottom….

  92. I’m pretty sure that’s probably racist, Beasn.

  93. I’m shocked – shocked – to see immigrants brought in by 0bama abusing the welfare system and programs meant to help Americans.

    As a completely unrelated aside: historically, there is no such thing as ‘immigration’ to a populated area. There is only invasion.

  94. So this is what you ladies like now?

  95. like the fabulous American figure skater Adam Rippon

    from the article, not my personal opinion haha

  96. Can those not on facebook see a facebook page if the setting is public?

    I can view some links, but not all. Not sure why some are blocked, but I only use a phone for Internet – is that the problem? I don’t do any “social media” so I don’t understand those rules, but yes, you should be able to see most facecrook posts.

  97. Because of course that’s what the NYT thinks.

    F*** the New York Times.

  98. There is a feral with four kittens right outside my window. The kittens are adorable. I’d live to adopt two of them, put the others in a good home, and get mama fixed, but I don’t have the time to commit to capturing them.

  99. If Erin can’t stay disciplined enough to go to class, then I doubt she’ll be successful in college right now.

    She needs to spend a few years working, take some classes on the side, and figure out what she wants to do with her life.

  100. College is a scam these days anyway.

  101. Very cool!

    Scale Model of the Solar System

  102. If she works out the soccer thing, she *IS* going to college.

    If not, she’s going to work and figure out life. Not taking classes on the side.

  103. Lapeer Creek update. Erin’s three REALLY good friends are guys. The ones who dropped by last night. They have classes together, chat all day, etc. GOOD friends.

    Well, one of the guys is fighting with his girlfriend. Over what – do you guess?

    Go ahead. Guess.

    I was SHOCKED.

  104. Classes on the side meaning something that’s applicable to the real world. Take an into to accounting class, or a math class, or class on excel. Build up her skill set while she tries to figure out what she wants to do with her life.

  105. Classes on the side meaning something that’s applicable to the real world. Take an into to accounting class, or a math class, or class on excel. Build up her skill set while she tries to figure out what she wants to do with her life.

  106. Things that are worth saying twice for $200, alex!

  107. She has to know that it’s causing problems. She can’t really be that oblivious, can she?

  108. At this point it *doesn’t * really matter, but it’s more of a point of punishment on my part.

  109. Plus, it’s honestly STUPID. At this point, this kids have literally 8 more day of high school – which are literally the easiest days of your life. Cripes. Go in two weeks.

  110. Senioritis. Known to cause IQ to drop by one or two standard deviations.

  111. My friend who run the battery store got a 2 year business degree because his father made him. It was a precondition to getting his grandfather’s house and land on what was once a sleepy street on the edge of town but over time became a well traveled route in Worcester. The house was knocked down about 10 years ago and replaced with a large multi tenant commercial building.

  112. No long term plans are being advocated for Erin right now. I am nixing bad ideas, but that’s it. I’m not saying i would NEVER encourage her to take side classes. Just not in the near future.

  113. I think Erin should go in the Navy.

  114. Heh.
    ive taken to tethering the doggeh out front these days so he can enjoy the daily goings on. He has 25′ of brass chain + 25′ of nylon rope, so he can almost reach the sidewalk, almost reach the the front porch, and almost reach each property line on either side. A perfect 50′ radius.

    I just watched him run balls out at top speed to chase after a stray cat, only to reach the end of the line and get yanked back like a catfishfish on a worm. Sucker.
    I wish I had had a video – that might’ve been a double backflip!

  115. I only gave him an 8.2
    It would’ve been a solid 9, but he didn’t stick the landing.

  116. We’re under a tornado watch.

  117. So, these Russian “oligarchs”. The title is used in a very derogatory way.

    We have oligarchs in this country:

    McCain
    Clinton
    Obama
    Pelosi
    Schumer
    Kerry
    And more.

    What should we call them?

  118. I know. Let’s call them cunts.

  119. Dittos Hotspur.

  120. Greitens lawyer just on the radio as I was bringing MIL back from shopping.

    They had filed a motion to dismiss yesterday morning due to lack of evidence or victim. Five hours later it happened.

    Circuit atty was okay with it because it got her out of having to testify and expose her dirty dealings. She even went to the circuit court to get out of it but even they said she had to testify. She will run into the same problem if she refiles.
    Also, the investigator she hired is under investigation. He plead the Fifth, which was unusual.

    As far as the other case against Greitens, his atty said he thinks it may also get dismissed. Greitens had put that charity together…he brought in all the donors…he raised millions for vets…he never took a salary.

  121. Erin could make a lot of friends in the Navy. Mostly responsible ones.

  122. One of her close friends has signed up for the marines. She doesn’t think he’s going to make it.lol.

  123. Today’s workout – 1 mile run, 2000 m row, 1 mile run. For time. With a weight vest.

  124. I could do that, Car in.

    By Friday.

  125. *points to self*

    *nods in agreement with Jay*

  126. How heavy is the vest?

  127. It weighs the same as Erin.

  128. I hate liberals:

    http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/opinion/editorial/bs-ed-0506-crab-visas-20180503-story.html

    Oh yes, this is all Trump’s fault. He singlehandedly lowered immigration.

    But wait, it’s not quite that simple. H2B just went from first come first serve to a lottery basis. So the canners couldn’t pack their labor force with people that they can pay $3 less per hour:

    https://www.epi.org/blog/h-2b-crabpickers-maryland-seafood-industry-paid-less-than-average/

    This is Maryland, so the Dems are in control. I hope the canners go out of business, instead of hiring local.

  129. I happen to have a Concert 2 erg here at home. Only, it’s not one of the new fancy ones. I have a pretty, old fashioned Model A from the early eighties. Rebuilt & restored to work perfectly natch. I’m a hipster, I think? All I need is a typewriter to carry around with me…

  130. It’s coming https://tinyurl.com/yahuuebj

  131. HABOOB!

  132. The sky was boiling. Very cool.

  133. I think SRV did that song – The Sky Is Boiling.

  134. I’m with Rand Paul on this, if Haspel had anything to do with that asshole Brennan surveilling Trump during the election, she can go eff herself.

  135. Erin could make a lot of friends in the Navy. Mostly responsible ones

    Don’t the Navy and Army have a lot of problems with young females in the service succumbing to pressure, selling themselves to lonely young male sailors/soldiers, and also getting preggers?

    Have they got a hold of this problem yet or is it still going on?

  136. A wise investment.

    https://is.gd/IBDQi9

  137. Laura, that happens, the pregnancy thing more than the other. In my experience, it’s the girls who had problems before they joined the Army. Daddy issues and family drama that they are escaping lead them to make bad choices.

  138. So, my new manager wants me to put movies out for sale. No pull cards. No locking things up. Black Panther released today. I’m missing 3 DVDs and 5 Bluray as of 3:20. No sales.

    This comment is soooooo racist.

  141. That’s OK Oso, they make up for it with volume.

  142. Animals.

  143. Wow. Tuesday is still the day that new movies get released?
    I remember this from over 10 years ago. Tuesday night was when I would go get the new releases. weird.

  144. Oso, offer a free Bible with every purchase.

  145. Chi, music new releases moved to Friday. Trying to outmaneuver Aussie pirates. Scott, that is true. I still H8 absorbing $800-$1000 dollars a month in book theft.

  146. Pretty sure new music comes out on Tuesdays too now that you mention that. Same thing, memory from when I used to give a shit about buying physical music rather than just streaming stuff.

  147. In San Antonio at the hotel. The company sent a car service to pick me up at the airport. Gotta work out and get cleaned up before dinner with friends tonight.

  148. Friday now? Wow, it’s been a while I guess.

  149. Not a single copy of Justice League was stolen. 1 Jumanji DVD; 1 Jumanji Bluray. We have had $10,000 in razor theft since Oct.

  150. River walk?

  151. How heavy is the vest?

    Typical weight is 20 pound for men, 14 for women. Mine was 15 – weights are 3 pound increments. It took me 31:45.

  152. New comic books are on Wednesday. Every comic nerd knows that one. Everyone else points and snickers.

  153. Oso, no at their house.

  154. How many poor Palestinian babies did you bench press today? Round to the nearest 100.

  155. I need to get to Sams to steal me a copy of Black Panther. I haven’t seen it yet.

  156. Trick questikn. Today was deadlift day.

  157. Another chick beat me – 29:20 (something). But she’s 20 years younger than me.

  158. So – At five year mark, they let us make up a workout. Mine will be in September.

    Thought you guys could have fun with this. GO:

  159. I mean a joke thread, but so far the workouts have been a tad ridiculous. On a serious side, I want “my” workout to be one that just about everyone can do “as written”. No scaling weight or movements.

  160. Car in, it turns out that Africans are so advanced that they can create a hyper-advanced civilization despite almost no trade with the outside world, a completely insular society, and a government that has apparently not moved past the Tribal stage. Oh, and they managed to hide this society from the rest of the world, which has horrifying implications regarding how they treat their own citizens.

    Also, everything bad with blacks in America is whitey’s fault.

  161. Shush. I’m going to enjoy the movie.

    Today’s workout – 1 mile run, 2000 m row, 1 mile run. For time. With a weight vest.
    ========

    Today’s workout – 1.5 mile walk, 400 foot climb up a steep hill in the middle (no real trail, lots of loose rocks), 30 pound pack, < 40 minutes. I'm out of shape.

  163. i do crossfit, just in case you ever need me to come out and help you wrangle cows or something.

  164. A friend does crossfit because he’s heard that it’s full of MILFs and basically a free-for-all amongst the single folks.

  165. “I need to get to Sams to steal me a copy of Black Panther.”

    Sneak it out in a bible.

  166. Good idea.

  167. Scott is right again!!! No one expects the Bible theft. We can’t lock up booze anymore either. 5 or fewer bottles at a time. No one told the vender. He fills the shelf front to back. Bra ha ha. Inventory is in June. Buchanan and Hennessy are the early theft leaders.

  168. Scott is right again!!!

    This is frequently true, but you people have to stifle it please already. I want to remind you that this guy makes me move stuff on my days off.

  169. I want to remind you that this guy makes me move stuff on my days off.

    He pays you in seafood. You get no sympathy from us.

  170. Crossfit for pay.

  171. Carin, did you get a dog for Mother’s Day or not? Did I miss a pic?

  172. Sadly no, oso

  173. It would be a lot easier if it was yoga instead of crossfit.

    Downward dog head on foot

  174. Wally paint

    Wine burpees

    Keenobell swing

    Erin Jerk

  175. Kid runs

  176. Beasn,
    I knew when the case was filed against Gov Greitens it would end in failure.
    Wife asked why so confident?

    Well two things:
    1 the DA is an idiot and was only elected because of race/gender.
    2 There has never been a case successfully prosecuted under the statute she was citing.

  177. Eldest Phatspawn is out in Arizona on a road trip.

    Yes, Alex I intendially did not let you know this.

  178. Phat, I’m in Cali and too busy anyways. Hopefully she’s having fun!

  179. Three 21 yr old girls on a road trip.

    What could possibly go wrong?

  180. Beasn,
    Military Academy Memorial Day ceremony is 26 May at Jefferson Barracks, 10 am.
    I am the speaker. I apologize in advance.

  183. phat, I went to New Orleans on a road trip for Spring Break

  184. Erin’s taking the news hard that she can’t skip school and go to cedar point with her delinquent friends tomorrow

  185. All the cool kids go to Mexico.

    Sadly no, oso

  188. Fry Cook Dead Lift

  189. From this morning’s discussion on small schools, that really doesn’t work for engineering. I can think of a few worthwhile small schools like Harvey Mudd and Olin, but those are >$50K/year.

  190. Sean’s Penis Pole Climb

  191. The scaled solar system was cool.

  192. Clean snatch.

  193. Clean snatch.

    Wait – did I stumble into the HQ? Are we having a hardwood vs shag carpeting debate?

  194. I want “my” workout to be one that just about everyone can do “as written”.

    Doesn’t everyone want a clean snatch?

  195. By the end of the workout everyone’s snatch should be loose and weak.

  196. Huh.
    So, Margot Kidder is gone now. Honestly, I’m surprised she didn’t leave this plane sooner – I always thought she was troubled.
    Hot as a fresh baked biscuit back in that old show “Nichols” with James Garner.

  197. Three 21 yr old girls on a road trip.

    What could possibly go wrong?

    Who’s directing? Russ Meyer, or Eli Roth?

  198. When lies become reality
    You derp yourself because it’s easy
    Pick yourself up it’s a brand new day
    So turn yourself round
    Don’t burn yourself, turn yourself
    Turn yourself around to the soul
