It's a date. Ms. MM and ElStud would probably enjoy a trip to San Diego though and they can go to a Godfather movie.
My company goes to Comic-Con. Perhaps I can write it off as a business expense.
So, like . . . is The Girl gonna make monkeys outta yall again this year by picking by her favorite colors on the jerseys, or because she likes the names of the towns they're in? Somebody should a study of her success, and compare to the "scientific" analysts.
You put your finger right on the problem, Setanta. First of all, she is a girl. I did well last year, but she finished ahead of me.

Kewl. They hiring?
Unfortunately it's not the IT dep't that goes to Comic-Con; it's the editors and marketing folk. I think last year they sent a buncha girls dressed up like Sailor Moon.
You wanna go as a girl dressed like Sailor Moon? What would the Lovely Bride say?
Mysteryman: I was driving on the by-pass the other day. I was perhaps 8 car lengths behind a tandem tractor trailer from Old Dominion Freight Lines. A cab and two trailers. He moved into the left-hand lane to allow a car to merge into traffic from an entrance ramp. Then he moved back into the right-hand lane.
The rear trailer started to fish-tail: 3-4' on to the shoulder and then an equal amount into the left lane. The front trailer went a couple of feet in the opposite direction with each of 4 or 5 repetitions. It looked, from my vantage point, pretty scary.
Was it? I know that you have driven big rigs.
It sounds like to me his rear trailer was empty, based on your description.
If that was the case, it may have been caught in the grooves in the road, those are caused by heavy vehicles.
Yes, it can be scary to look at, and if the driver isnt paying attention it could have been disastrous, but if a driver knows what he is doing it wont be much of a problem.
Thank you. I never saw brake lights come on. I expect the best thing to do would be maintain speed, or even accelerate slightly.
From what you describe, if the driver had hit his brakes he would have jackknifed and then there would have been a wreck.
Hi, folks. I'm still in computer exile, so I just caught this. Sign me up, any column will be fine.
16 folks have now indicated an interest in playing: Edgar, Jespah, Region, Wandeljw, McGentrix, Ehbeth, George, Johnboy, LionTamerX, Mysteryman, Tico, Fox, ElStud, Ragman, Osso and Imur.
Imur (from Ireland) sent me a pm saying he would "look for the thread." Perhaps someone could guide him in.
There is no requirement that players pre-register here. Anyone interested merely needs to pick the winners in the games listed above.
Well we definitely need Cowdoc and Ms Cowdoc - best way to guide Imur in RJB is to copy and paste this link into a PM to Imur.
If the Texans play any regular season games the way they played against NO a few nights ago, I will be getting my head measured for a paper bag to wear.
On the other hand, the Cowboys did themselves proud in their debut in their brand new stadium this past week.
