@narfcake Hey me too!!! On the BOC!!! Then I got some stuff during happy hour. I also earned a coupon…Yea!! So good day over there at the other place. I liked during the pandemic when Meh did a lot more activities…I get it…supply chain issues…worker issues…but I miss activities. But glad you got a BOC so easily…
@chienfou right. I just think that especially during the world cup, there should be a winner for each game. Even if it has to go on for many hours. That to me would be exciting. After the hour 3, the second and 3rd string players would get to play
The way table is set up with points for win/ lose/draw allows for two teams in the same table to potentially meet in the finals. Changing that to be only win/loss makes it more difficult to figure out table play standing and advancement. With 6 games per table second place might be more tough to determine.
@chienfou@joebuddah JK. I like soccer. At least when I could still play it. But watching it? Might as well watch golf or bowling for excitement. (But at least soccer gets the occasional streaker – haven’t ever seen that in golf or bowling.)
@chienfou@joebuddah@macromeh Shouldn’t a goalie’s save also be a highlight?
If the highlights showed goals made, goal shots saved, and the possessions that let up to each, you wouldn’t need to watch the rest of the match in most circumstances, IMHO.
You could probably watch the gist of a dozen matches in less than an hour that way.
IDK just the thought of them burning my mouth up like when I thought I was going to be badass and munch down a entire fire hot Dorito chip. The memory alone has me running scared, I couldn’t escape the pain!
Not a black Friday sale per se but I did pick up an espresso machine for really cheap by looking at the clearance section of my little Walmart neighborhood grocery store when I was there Friday. After I finally got the pump to prime I was able to make my first cappuccino today. When I successfully make five more the machine and the brick of coffee will have paid for itself, and I will probably have something resembling a technique down by then
My “Black Friday” deal was going to my finally closing RadioShack (:C) on Saturday and getting a nice step up/step down transformer for $27. A tool I’d been needing on my workbench for years, finally at an affordable price.
@PooltoyWolf Wow, you still had a Radio Shack! I miss what that place used to be. And I did make a few trips when they were closing here and snap up some of the remnants of what they used to be for cheap.
@djslack Still open, until middle of December! It was a Tandy franchisee that became independent when the chain went belly-up. The store operates under the Innovative Electronics name and has been in business for 52 years. I will be sad to see it go. When I was there Saturday, they still had a ton of private label RadioShack stuff (Enercell, Optimus, etc.)
