Re: The depressing depression thread

My dad's having a rough battle with cancer. The prognosis sucks. It's in his lower esophagus, right where the hatch is leading into the stomach, and long story short, it was there, much radiation was administered, it was gone and now it's back. There are two options: 1. Surgery to remove the cancer....

For the longest time, I've been keeping a count of how many episodes of Feed Dump everyone has been in. I finally got around to slapping it on the Feed Dumps Sorted By Host page.

I watched... the FMV intro for MegaRace prior to submitting the horror that is Lance Boyle to Graham. I did not see any of MegaRace 2 beforehand; only the fact that it and the unseen third game existed, and that 1 and 2 were bundled for $6. So that one, in addition to inflicting it on all of you, I ...

Re: Feed Dump 225 - A Rich Head Canon

That's just comparing Canada to Canada... and I shortened the timeline there to just the past 90 days. Take it out to the past year. Interest jacked through the roof around early August, when the Blue Jays rattled off an 11-game winning streak, during which they took the lead in their division. Amer...

Re: Feed Dump 225 - A Rich Head Canon

Google Trends is actually showing a big Canada-wide uptick in searches for 'Blue Jays' (the territories and Expos-loyal Quebec aside), so there is clearly some nationwide fandom going on. US searches pale in comparison, with the exception of the Kansas City area, home of the Royals, who had been cha...

Re: Do you have a Blog or Twitter account? Post yours here.

I've come to the conclusion that 'I don't quite understand sports' humor can be improved upon. In its current form, if you want to convey that someone doesn't get sports, there are two basic routes: the passive route ('I slam dunked from the 10 yard line for a home run!'), or the aggressive route ('...

It's really not that hard to get accepted by the LRR fanbase. The whole thing about a comedy troupe is that the same members won't always be there; sometimes people come and go. We see it in other high-profile troupes, SNL for instance. LRR has a bit of an advantage over other troupes: in SNL, Groun...

The Dutch flag wasn't necessarily as much of a slam-dunk as you think. Luxembourg has a very, VERY similar flag; it's mainly down to the shade of blue on the bottom bar; Luxembourg has a lighter blue.

Then you get into Romania and Chad. and Andorra. and Moldova.
