  1. Overrated zombie soap drama has a thread and the greatest show on television does not? My favorite part of the first episode (of the third season) was when Tyrion spoke to his father. The look on his face as he left the room gave me chills. I also still can't believe one of Daenerys's dragons is named Drogon. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PnEBatKmLpM
  2. I mentioned I was in the Queen City yesterday. Did I see a picture of Cellino of Cellino and Barnes on a Cellino Plumbing truck? Twin? Side gig?
  3. I'll start it off with baseball playoffs beginning tomorrow! I hate the idea of one-game series as too chancy, but I love the idea for the tension and excitement.
  4. This forum is always good for advice on topics outside of hockey and I bet this will be no different. I know Bio has regaled us with stories of her house nightmares, so maybe others have things to contribute? Although home-ownership not in our immediate plans, Josie and I talk frequently about our desire to stop throwing money into the apartment rental void. Our lives are still a little too unpredictable at the moment, but I think within the next two years I want to take a stab at it. Now, I'm no stranger to making hasty and risky financial decisions, but I've lived in enough rental homes and done enough of my own work in those homes to know what I'm getting in to, and I know that preparation is key. I don't want to go into this without knowing what I'm doing. Things I'm curious about: 1. The process of home buying. How did you go about finding, inspecting, financing, etc? I spend a lot of time messing around on Zillow and stuff, but I've never spoken to a realtor or anything. 2. Financial incentives. What is out there for young adults, first time home buyers, people who don't make a lot of money, etc.? 3. What improvement jobs have you tackled yourself? What were your results? Tips? 4. Foreclosed homes and short sales. Ever bought one? How did it go? Obviously this is just an open thread. These are just my conversation starters.
  5. Watching some baseball and I always wondered why Buffalo doesn’t have an MLB team. I would guess lots of Buffalonians like baseball. Having a team in Toronto doesn’t hurt the Sabres so I can’t imagine negative market sharing. It would give us three different ways to bring a championship to Buffalo too. Only thing we need to make sure is the Pegulas don’t own it. Appreciate everyone’s thoughts on the why and likelihood it ever happens.
  6. With Kamala Harris announcing she is running today. Senator from Cal and former Attny Gen of Cal thought it was a good time to put together a list of announced and rumored hopefuls and discuss them. List link: https://abc7news.com/politics/whos-running-for-president-in-2020-list-of-possible-dem-candidates/5047818/
  7. Went there on my honeymoon for 13 days and am looking to return. Want to take the teenage kids this summer to celebrate some stuff... We technically have 16.5 max to use on travel (Fri night to a Sun night). That is probably enough time for 2 islands. I could also see one island and maybe some time in San Francisco/California for variety. Any big travelers here want to pontificate on their Hawaiian experiences? Suggestions?
  8. Taking over the University of Alabama HC Position
  9. This is kind of a useless topic, but I just noticed The Aud Club has a million posts and I thought it was neat.
  10. I just signed up to the club again to put this in here and see if anyone has any thoughts on it. +++++ Canadians are very easy going and tend to be rather lazy when digging for information. Our politicians and politics reflect this and there are not very many real scandals. Until now. Here are some links to the story ... https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/gerald-butts-opposition-parliamentary-probe-1.5023941 https://www.cbc.ca/news/opinion/gerald-butts-1.5023925 https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/trudeau-wilson-raybould-snc-lavalin-1.5021220 https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/trudeau-wilson-raybould-attorney-general-snc-lavalin-1.5014271 This is huge and it is not going away. In fact, every day it just is worse and worse for our Prime Minister. This could very well be his undoing.
  11. My oldest has been applying year. So far, he has been accepted at: University of Rochester University of Maryland University of Miami University of Florida Pitt Penn State Virginia Tech He has no preference to date. Anyone else going through the process?
  12. This is pretty funny. I’m sure there are ones about Republicans too. If I find one I’ll post it.
  13. https://www.wivb.com/news/state/new-legislation-calls-for-social-media-search-before-pistol-permit-in-ny-1/1614323056 In the history of mankind since the development of firearms, when did mass shootings become so prevalent? What other social issues (health, education) have arisen around the same time? Coincidence? Why was it so easy for veterans to get PTSD status? Why do drug courts allow repeat offenders go to rehab instead of prison? How are both connected? Illicit drug use and PTSD. If 2A was meant to prevent government overreach, who would be best suited to defend/train? How are rights and the Constitution taught/affect interpretation for future generations. Do commiters of violent crimes normally announce their intentions on social media? Who does this bill really target? Is NY a test bed given leftist dominance? How has gun control and politics unfolded in history? Keep going New York. You and California are pioneers of a free nation.
  14. I was wondering if a new club for science and technology would be ok. Nothing political but a place to discuss current, future, and theoretical topics. Thank you.
  15. I am not sure if this is thread worthy, but thought so ... This coming November 11th is a very special day, as it marks the 100th Anniversary of the end of the 'Great War'. The 'war to end all wars'. History has shown that not to be the case. You guys and gals know that I am a lover, not a fighter. That is not to say that I do not appreciate and thank those who have served, those who do serve and, especially, those who have paid the ultimate price. So, a big thank you goes out to all that serve, or have served, be you a combat veteran, or not. And I also include any and all first responders, as well. Thank you, with Love from NS. Maybe soon there will be an end to war. One fine day ...
  16. So, I have a couple weddings coming up, one on May 5th and the other sometime in June. I need a new suit. I can't buy off the department store rack. That stuff doesn't fit me and frankly the material quality always seems poor for the price. I wasn't super happy with the last pair of suits I bought from Men's Wearhouse. I didn't like the tailoring process, although the materials were in line with the price. My brother has had good luck with Jos A Bank, but I'm wary of the chain stores. I would still go to one I guess, but it's not my first choice. A local operation would be nice, but I don't know if I can afford a real tailor. I feel like the best I can do on a suit is like $400 and I'd need to really like it. Anyone here have experience with Bureau downtown? Or the New York Store in Lancaster? Or those italian guys, Uomo da Milano, at the Galleria? Some other hidden gem? Should I just kill a guy and take his suit?
  17. Hey wondering if locals sttart migrating to Bulls TP has competition for football. Was wondering if their winning lately has Bills fans migrating to them?
  18. I was watching the Spy Who Loved Me on TV and the Ski Jump off the mountain into a Union Jack parachute maybe one of the most spectacular ever in a Bond movie. However it also got me thinking about the Bond Movies. So I thought I'd ask. 1) What is your favorite Bond movie? 2) What is the best Bond movie? 3) Who is/was the best James Bond? 4) Who is/was the best villan? 5) Who is the hottest co-star? 6) What was the best stunt in a Bond film? 7) What is the best gadget in a Bond film? Edit: 8.) Best song - it does not have to be the theme song 9) Best character name other then Octopussy. 10) Worst Bond Film?
  19. So one of the Hospitals I work at may be affected by a strike because Hospital management want to eliminate its contribution to the Unions pension fund. Folks are not thrilled with idea of a 401k because they don’t often live up to goods workers are sold and can be controlled by management. NYC area hospital systems could be affected. Unions have their plusses and minuses but in regards to health insurance and pensions and the reasonable dues make it worthwhile to me. Still interested in peoples thoughts?
  20. 1st, let me say, like Zack Kassian, I'm a fan of the concept of topic tags. However, unless they are used consistently - they are fairly useless. The big benefit when used properly, is that when you click on a tag - all topics with that tag are shown. My options are: 1. Get rid of them completely 2. Force at least one tag per topic (topic starter choice) 3. Force topic starter to choose from a list of predefined tags (this would make the best use of tags) 4. Allow choice of predetermined tags, but don't force every topic to have one. 5. Keep as is
  21. Don't know if anyone else here fly fishes or ties their own flies. Some combination of the heat, these gin and tonics, and the lack of hockey that's making me crazy but I decided to whip up some Buffalo Sabres inspired Copper Prince nymphs. I give you the Blue and Gold Dahlin: There's some green peacock SLF in there because every Sabres fan knows "Blue and Gold make green." The brown hackle... our performance last season 😂 Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G928A using Tapatalk

    How would you like it handled? First, I think politics, as it intersects the world of sports (Buffalo sports in particular), is perfectly fine. Not sure what to do about the rest.... Constructive suggestions?
  23. The Athletic Managing Editor James Mirtle confirmed this past weekend that the website will be expanding its coverage to having beat writer cover the Sabres next season. The Athletic proves alternative coverage on a National Level and a Local Level as well. They have hired many writers from National Outlets such as SI, ESPN and Fox Sports. In addition they have hired local writers usually from the area’s newspapers such as Arthur Staple and Mike Russo. Mirtle also asked what writers fans would like to see covering the team for the site. The overwhelming favorite was Joe Yerdon who covers the Sabres for NHL.com. Other responses included John Vogl The Buffalo News, Matt Bove from Channel 7 and Bill Hoppe from the Olean Times Herald. Given that there are rumblings The Buffalo News is in financial trouble and that Vogl has been on the Sabres Beat for awhile he appears to be the logical candidate to be hired. Who would you like to see covering the Sabres?
  24. IN CONGRESS, JULY 4, 1776 The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. Happy Fourth of July, all! I'm enjoying it in Buffalo. Life is good ...
  25. Who's doing it? I know Chz is. I think ink mentioned it? I'm starting to come around on the idea. I have a car that is perfect for it and I like the idea of being able to just fire the app up when I'm bored and take a couple fares. Has it been worthwhile or a waste of time?
