Every sitcom since the beginning of time features a character who's fond of wearing button up shirts opened, with a tee-shirt underneath.

Yet, I've never seen anybody in real life wearing this configuration. I'm sure it has happened, but if aliens are learning about us through 90's network TV shows they'll think this is the most popular look ever.
Watching "Ghost Adventures," and starting to understand why certain societal upheavals are taking place right now.

There are a number of shows like this, which tells me there's quite the audience. Add the ancient alien shows, and the shows interviewing people who died and went to heaven and you start to wonder why so many people are so prone to believing baseless bullshit. I think it's definitely an escape of sorts to some, but I know way too many folks who eat this garbage up, yet call me an idiot for believing in evolution.
Just now, the host says something along the lines of "rivers are a fantastic conduit for spirts, as the flowing water bends light perfectly to allow portals to open to our world." He said it as though he was reading from a college textbook on the subject; like it was scientifically testable and results had been reproduced over and over. Jeesh.
So I haven't watched baseball in a minute, but I see some highlights from the Rockies game and the San Fran players are sucking down oxygen in the dugout.

This is still baseball, right? I played all through high school at more extreme elevations, and never had any issues with breathing. Granted, I lived at elevation, but I played centerfield, which is the position that covers the most ground during a game by a country mile (if played correctly anyway). Not only that, but this game has slowed down sooooo much, and these are world class athletes. I, on the otherhand, was a sot from freshman year on, and didn't care much for cardio. What are we feeding these pansies?
They can be bad, but everybody seems to ignore the other end of the spectrum, Whole Foods. I've found a few items recently that they carry that I really like, so I've been frequenting their establishments more often for lunch. I look forward to those visits even less than Walmart, and I walk out even more perturbed.
Is there anywhere else that you'll find such a collection of pretentious, snooty assholes? It's a perfect mix of old rich people who act irritated by having to mingle with common folk, vegans who have to make you perfectly aware that they're vegans, and the millenial broker types who think their leased Audi makes them hot shit.
They definitely aren't all as bad as this fancy smancy location I just left, but it's still never a good time. If Thrill ever gets his wish, start here. If I happen to be there that day, fine. I'll take one for the team.
Most lists I've seen have him ranked in the top 10, and I've even seen one or two that put him in their top 5. These guys excluded him altogether? I know they're SEC minded guys, and they included backs who haven't played a down yet, but that kind of disrespect can be awesome fuel for an angry runner like Moss.
Geostorm may be the dumbest movie ever. At least Con Air's cheesy moments were laughably funny, and it had a kickass cast with John Cusack, Dave Chappelle, Ving Rhames, Danny Trejo, and Steve Buscemi.

Geostorm has Ed Harris, and Andy Garcia... Oh, and Gerard Butler, who once again tries out his horrifically bad American accent. Why do they keep trying to force that on us?
Kevin Costner was told to ditch the english accent in Robin Hood, because it was so terrible, and that film still worked. Chernobyl was a great mini-series despite everybody having British accents. They even routinely threw "comrade" into the mix, but it didn't matter much. Yet, we have to endure Butler's butchering of whatever American dialect fits the role. I don't know if he's worse than Tom Hardy, but Butler still manages to take you out of any movie where he plays an American with that garbled talk.
I was excited about it, as the book is an all-time favorite of mine, but what a huge letdown. I was really hoping they would keep it as factual as possible, especially after seeing how accurate Chernobyl was (besides all the limey accents of course), but they were obviously way more interested in creating ridiculous drama with lame dialogue from characters that were apparently amalgamations of actual people. Nat Geo should stick to filming lions, and lame reality shows (which is most of their content anymore).
Why do they still make round toilets? The average American is close to 6' tall and has a 40" waistline (no joke, 40). Elongated toilets should be standard. I'll vote for any candidate that makes this a focal campaign issue.
by 480ute 2019-05-30 18:25:46
I've widdled myself down by about fifteen lbs and have taken my waistline down to a 34, and I still feel like if I move the wrong direction this entire Best Western toilet is going to shoot straight up my rump.
That petition to remake GoT season 8 got around 1.5 million signatures, and now some dork in Seattle is flying around a banner asking for a season rewrite.

Then there's those goofy Lakers fans that rallied in front of the Staples Center to make some kind of statement to management. We have way too much free time and prosperity in this country. I'm not asking for a recession, but at least it would wipe out a lot of this strange entitlement. Oh, and we could definitely use another boost in customer service. People feeling a little too secure in their jobs right now.
Is the carousel of players totally abnormal, or is it just a little bit out of the ordinary? Judging by the comments about transfers here I assume it's way out of line, but we tend to overreact so maybe it's not that dire? I followed college basketball a lot more closely fifteen or twenty years ago, but only catch Utah games (and the occasional March Madness matchup) nowadays, so forgive my ignorance.
College football has changed a ton just in the past few years with regard to transfer and eligibility rules, so I imagine that basketball has transformed a bit too, but Utah's constant outflux seems awfully excessive to this casual observer. Calling for a coach's head isn't really my responsibility or right, but I have to ask what the hell is going on?

Refusing to get overhyped, but that is refreshing for this time of year. Seems like every season since Wynn left we get all lathered up by crazy practice reports, then see scrimmages that end 7-0, so I won't complain.
Anybody else sorta hope measles mutates, and takes half of us out? Yeah, me neither.

I mean, we kinda deserve it, seeing as how we (amazingly) eliminated it nearly twenty years ago, only to let it creep back into human existence by rejecting the thing that got rid of it in the first place. We've had more cases in the first three months of 2019 than in all of 2018. Is Jenny Mcarthy to blame? We need a scapegoat, and I feel like she's the one who kicked off the autism hysteria that led us here. Sfork, load her up on that rocketship, stat.
Was Devontae Booker always destined to be an off-the-bench back?
by 480ute 2019-03-29 11:41:55
I feared this for him coming out of college, as Utah leaned hard on him, giving him nearly 27 carries per game his senior year. He racked up the yardage, but it seemed like most of his rushing yards came later in the game after he wore down the defense.
The only NFL back to average more than 17.5 carries per game last season was Ezekiel Elliott, with 20.59. I figured teams saw unrealized potential in booker, or thought he might be a good change of pace type back, especially considering his phenomenal hands. So, I was a bit surprised when he won Denver's starting job, even if he did lose it quickly after.
Anyway, I'm seldom right about much, especially when it comes to football, so I'm just pondering the upcoming season and what it holds for the guy. Thoughts? Definitely one of my favorite Utes, so always rooting him on, but I just don't see him ever being much of an impact player. Really hope he proves me wrong.
If you can't stand Colin Cowherd, I mean "Gym Class Jerry", which I suspect is just about all of us, this video is for you. Even if you don't like or know Bill Burr, you should be able to appreciate it.

"Over behind your big dumb desk, hiding behind your microphone."
Watching the Ted Bundy series on Netflix last night, and got curious when they started in on the part of his life he spent in Salt Lake (and at the U).

This was all before I was born, but I started wondering if any of you had any personal interactions with the guy, and what your impressions of him were. What was the atmosphere in the valley like at the time? I was a kid living in LA when Richard Ramirez was terrorizing the city, and even though I was very young I remember adults talking about how scary it was and about the precautions they were taking. Was there that same fear here, or were people largely unaware?
The show is great, and there's a ton of footage of SLC and the university from that time period that lines up perfectly with their details of events (they even have footage from within a car driving through the Fashion Place mall parking lot). Also, I didn't know that he was actually baptized into the Mormon church. Maybe somebody out there belonged to the same ward as him?
