    They do but they run more than the average American. Most Americans in boot camp don't have that kind of background.

    I don't like most sweet stuff. Haven't had desert since I was a kid I think. I'll make exception for some dark chocolate with a glass of red.

    You’ll be happy to know Nascar Driver Jimmie Johnson ran the Boston Marathon in 3:09 just one hour behind the Ethiopians, Japanese, and Kenyans

    I'm impressed - seriously

    Oh yes, dark chocolate is definitely more my thing. Can enjoy that and not feel sick for three hours afterwards.

    Ughh the tattoo place my miss was going to in a couple of months is in liquidation process. The artist has contacted us and told us his new work space and kept our same appointment, but we might have lost the deposit from the other place.

    Was almost staring down the barrel at a 3 game losing streak in madden, uncharted territory for me. Down by 11 less than 5 to go and the drive of the century scoring TD with 19 secs to go. Yee-ah Boyz.

    I don't get the combi with wine or beer though. It's better with coffee, tea or milk imo

    I saw that. I hate to be a skeptic but that looks like it was pretty easily staged to me. And even if he was really injured and it was all legit.....the news story I saw looked like they were just framing it as their usual propaganda.

    I’m not skeptical because it happens every year at the marathon.

    30, 000 people register for the marathon every year, but there’s another 10,000 than run for various reasons and causes and are simply not prepared to run 26.2 miles.

    I find myself in a tough situation because the workers at my grocery store of choice Stop and Shop are on strike and I don’t want cross their picket line,


    On the other hand the store is convenient, I like the layout, and they have items unique to their store – so what to do?

    Be that as it may....if you google Edward Bernays and a series called Century Of The Self....you will find that this situation is literally the exact template that he designed for propaganda that would eventually be called "public relations". So maybe this guy and others are really struggling in that race, maybe not. I don't know. But don't underestimate the ability of the media to exploit what Bernays taught them because they do it every single day and they know it. It's part of the foundation of what they do to make money.

    On a side note....Bernays was the nephew of Sigmund Freud. He used his uncle's insights to build these ideas and he became pretty wealthy by selling his services to companies and gov't entities.

    Watching Game 3 and I'm starting to wonder if The SHARKS even give a fuck about going to round 2?

    Go knock on doors and bang on walls and make sure you flail your arms about and shake your head on camera. :p
