  1. Hunting and Guns

    Nerf was speaking to gun recommendations in the Trump thread. Figured this deserved a thread of it's own. I've recently decided I'd like to shoot an animal. Preferably an Elk because I enjoy the meat. I've always been rather opposed to guns, not because of any ideas on gun laws, but just because I didn't feel very safe when I was using them. My only shooting experience was going to an abandoned military base up in Alaska over 10yrs ago, and shooting like 9 different guns, rifles, handguns,...

  2. Funny Baseball Anecdotes

    With pitchers and catchers reporting soon it's time for some baseball convo fun. I do not know if this fits, but one of the funniest things I ever heard an announcer say during a telecast was: Skip Caray, while doing a Braves telecast when a pitcher was walking the ballpark "and he walks him, the bases are loaded again and I wish I was"

  4. Election 2016

    Maynerd has given permission to start this thread, so long as it discusses current events. Don't start name-calling candidates or each other, or it will get shut down. Don't be buttheads and ruin it, please. Apparently the GOP is planning for a brokered convention, since they have so many candidates. Personally, I'm still hoping that DT runs as an independent. That would be epic. http://www.cnn.com/2015/12/10/politics/rnc-brokered-convention-preparation/index.html

  5. Express Your Hope Or Trepidations About Our Future With Trump

    This pretty much says it for me: The nation is soon to be under the aegis of an unstable, unqualified, undignified demagogue and with Republicans in control of both houses of Congress, there is little that can be done to constrict or control his power and unpredictability. Its like seeing an ominous weight swinging toward a limb, sure to break it, while you feel utterly helpless to prevent the fracture. As the exiting first lady Michelle Obama told Oprah last week: Were feeling...

  6. Joke of the Day

    It's a long off season with no baseball, and it's a long season when it's back on. So, any time is a good time for jokes. I wish I could tell you all that I knew a lot of them, but I don't. I am good at laughing, though. Post the ones that have made you laugh. I guess we have to keep them pretty clean, but let the good times roll.

  7. Mayor Hillary Clinton?

    I can't quite see her stomping all over Trump if she were mayor, but the thought is delightful and I'd vote for her. From political circles in New York City to cocktail parties on Capitol Hill, on right-of-center Facebook pages and among left-of-center donors, two of the biggest untethered threads in New York politics are being drawn together around a single question. Would Hillary Clinton run for mayor? The prospect has an obvious, novelistic allure: A run for mayor of New York this...

  10. Songs that are stuck in your head

    Right now I have "lean like a cholo" stuck in my head. It's the one that goes, "elbows up, side to side". Anyone else have a song stuck in their head?

  11. Is This Possible for the US?

    Some years ago, I faced up to the futility of reporting true things about America’s disastrous wars and so I left Afghanistan for another remote mountainous country far away. It was the polar opposite of Afghanistan: a peaceful, prosperous land where nearly everybody seemed to enjoy a good life, on the job and in the family. It’s true that they didn’t work much, not by American standards anyway. In the US, full-time salaried workers supposedly laboring 40 hours a week actually average 49,...

  12. Happy Birthday Rickey Henderson!

    58 years old. Yankee career that was regrettably too short. The '85 Yankees will frustrate me until I'm dead.

  17. Happy Hanukkah

    To all my Jewish friends (aka, members of the Tribe), I give you your own thread dedicated to the religion where the Torah is read, a strict diet is enforced, and for which there have been many adherents. Whether you are Reform, Conservative, Orthodox or ultra-Orthodox, I say to one and all: Happy Hanukkah On this 2nd day of the 8-day Festival of Lights, please enjoy. Shalom
