    Drunk bros swinging bikes wildly.

    Kids retreated and were heading back to scene with found objects including brooms, bricks/rocks, and one of them was swinging a belt with a big buckle. Baltimore makes them tough and resourcesful. They would have won but at least one of them would have gotten thrashed by a drunk asshole.

    Classes? You go to classes? You're a freshman. What classes can't you stream online when you finally wake up? Important to get your sleep.
    BTW--the alarm clock across the room thing doesn't work. And don't you have a roommate? How are they going to feel about it?
    (Full disclosure. My kids didn't go to classes and they each flunked a course and had to go to summer school to get it off their transcript.)

    My ability to walk upon a scene that I was not hoping to be involved in, and assess, and just neutralize the idiots in 5 seconds after 30 years, and just walk away, amuses me. Just like my ability to have a dialog, pull out a first aid kit, and fix some random up.

    Other side of the coin I suppose. Balance, yoga, and all that shit that life teaches you.

    I don't do the yogas.

    That's wild, man. Sounds like a scene from a movie. One of those moments in life that makes you go:

    There are alarm clock apps that force you to do math to shut off your alarm.
    (Depending on how good you are at math, you might still have it going off at lunch.)

    Fantasy / Football articles linked through the ESPN app have always been free.. until this year. Now they give you a couple of paragraphs and then a pay wall.

    I get sports info from a lot of different sources, but that was always an easily accessible read.. and say what you want about Matt Berry, I've thoroughly enjoyed his columns for years.

    Now I can't, and that shit Annoys me.

    ^ That's why the TGR exists. Go ahead and ask your sports questions in one of our many sports specific threads. What would you like to know?

    I have a Kity jointer-planer. Made in France. I tried to google Kity to find a source for blades but all I got was porn sites.

    I just googled it and like the 2nd hit was Kity woodworking equipment from France. Almost all other results were tool related. No porn.

    BTW company is no longer in business.

    Sorry you were disappointed not to find porn. I guess Madam Kity retired--it was a a long time ago.

    Google does customize results based on user habits. You clearly have a penchant for old-timey porn.

    No judgment here.
    focus.

    I've got the 260 mm model. Does a decent job. Being able to face joint 10 inches wide is worth the hassle of converting. The beds are pretty short for doing big pieces though. It is nice to have access to the Truckee Roundhouse's 20 inch powermatic with helical head. I have disposable and a set of sharpenable knives for mine so as long as nothing brakes I'll get by with the company being out of business.

    Friend of mine in the east sent a mass text soliciting contributions for a friend running for Congress. I get all the responses, on EDT, ie 5 in the morning. (These days I usually sleep with my phone nearby on not silenced--it's fire season.)

    On iPhones at least, you can mute specific text threads

    I crazy glued a piece of rubber molding that was hanging off my daughter's car and got some glue on my finger. Now my phone doesn't recognize my fingerprint and i have to put in the code every time.

    I got a scratch on the bottom of my phone screen, right across the sensor. Hasn't worked right for a month. I'm maybe 1 for 6 in successful prints.

    Scratch isn't visible unless up close and doesn't hinder other phone use.

    Just a PITA.
