  1. I return to complain about the cold

    At this point, 26F would feel positively tropical.
  2. That and the good news from the NUFC side of things in the last couple of days brought me back, at least briefly. What's been going on around here, folks? I see my funny pictures thread is still on the front page.
  3. Annual obligatory it's f*cking freezing thread

    Yup. This is not particularly novel around here, but it is still fun. Best part is the multiple news stories about people burning themselves trying to do it http://www.buzzfeed.com/adriancarrasquillo/a-whole-bunch-of-people-threw-boiling-water-in-the-air-to-wa

    Thanks! Good to be back! Hopefully it lasts...
  5. Annual obligatory it's f*cking freezing thread

    Nah. I like it here, despite the cold winters. Spent a year abroad in India and honestly missed the seasonal change when I had 18 months of 'summer.' That being said, this is the coldest it has been in about 25 years. It can be fun to take a boiling pot of water outside to see steam freeze or to see the thrown water freeze before it hits the ground. But you gotta go back inside quickly. At these temperatures (-43 C windchill) exposed flesh freezes in less than 10 minutes. I have family in California and absolutely hate L.A. Bay area hasn't been dreadful but I wouldn't want to live there.

    Haha! Board has now been unblocked by work again!
  7. Whats the longest you've stayed awake?

    A couple weeks ago I was at work from 7:00 AM Tuesday through 11:30 PM Wednesday. Adding in the travel time to the time actually spent at work, that comes out to about 40 hours. It sucked, and productivity clearly dropped after about 11:00 Tuesday, but the job got done, and filed in time. I went home and slept for 11 straight hours for the first time since High School. Not keen to repeat. I'm sure the client isn't either since for just me, that cost them a ton of money, and I was the cheapest of four people working that period.
  8. Ronaldinho at peak vs Messi now

    I agree with the sentiment that (fat) Ronaldo was the best when in his prime, but unfortunately it was cut short by the injuries and whatever the hell happened before the final of France98. Between Ronaldinho and Messi, though, I think you have to give it to Messi for end-product but Ronaldinho was more fun to watch.

  10. Snow Tomorrow

    Bah. 15" of snow since yesterday morning. No one has shoveled, making my commute a pain in the ass. I bicycle about 9 miles to and from work. When there is that much snow on the ground, biking is very difficult. Of course, it's mildly amusing to me that for about a third of that a good portion of the country would be shut down, whereas here we get to work about 15 minutes later and apologize for it.
  11. Our Worst Ever Signings (Financially)

    huh. I hadn't noticed, but looking at .com now, they even mention the Soccer Bowl victory. That's going to rub salt in the wound every year for a while now when it shows up.
  12. Our Worst Ever Signings (Financially)

    Having just watched him score a critical goal but then miss a penalty in the shootout (although is team won, over mine, of course) in the US Second Division Championship, Carl Cort comes to mind. £7 million....
