    CoIrkers using to microwave to heat last night’s seafood special. Yeah...I wanted to smell your leftover shrimp for the rest of the afternoon.

    It makes perfect sense...until you think about it.

    I suspect there's logic behind the madness, but I'm too dumb to see it.

    When a single human can purchase a chunk of land like say, Greenland, for cash, for a spoof, as a representative Democrat, it should be a sign that many things have not progressed at all from that days of the pharaohs.

    Could be fake news I suppose. Get Thalia on the case. It appears Borowitz is the source so who knows. I didn’t actually know The NY Times had an onion column.

    ha, that's actually the New Yorker, not the Times. And yeah the Borowitz report is satire, I hadn't seen that piece until now: https://www.newyorker.com/humor/boro...ying-greenland

    Interesting. Obviously I like humor I’m cracking jokes around here all the time. But I’ve spoken out against comedy news before, maybe in this thread.
    Just seems odd to me, mixing bad news and humor.
    I’d rather just have the straight facts and then get on to better times.
    Anyway carry on.

    ^ laughed at both of those. Satire from news orgs just seems different not sure why. I’m headed for food and beer and forget all the bad news for a bit.

    The Borowitz report is clearly labelled as satire. The Onion is well known for satire. I share your feelings about comedy news that a reasonable person might mistake real.

    I hate to break it to you but I just read in the Washington Post that Trump just made beer illegal by executive order effective immediately.

    skiers have to be the worst parkers on the planet. Walking from my car to the lodge this morning I counted 15 cars taking up more than one parking space and a bunch of empty spaces because of the people who had to leave their doors open to prevent someone from parking next to them. Sugar Bowl actually had a guy trying to make sure people parked reasonably close together, let people park next to them, kept their kids out of the middle of the aisle (it's ski skate week) but nobody was paying any attention to him. I was going to take a picture but my camera was out of film.

    Agreed. The GEICO ads are hit or miss for sure.

    I'd be more surprised if he had the hots for the GEICO lizard.

    What's wrong with having a one door-length gap between vehicles?

    Especially since the lot guys I deal with force a 36" gap between bumpers. WTF? Try to get a pair of 192 pow skis out of the hatch - you almost touch the windshield on the vehicle behind you before you clear your own rig...

    Do it.

    Had dh boards years ago. If you have groomer only days and enough open space to let them rip, wow is that fun.

    I guess the shit that annoys me is shits so crowded it’s hard to let them rip
