Man is apparently stabbed in a Wawa parking lot, goes in the store to order food and is later found dead in his car still in the lot. *smh*

Yes. I can ride both to the local downtown and to Our Nation's Capital, easily and (by US standards) safely.

Do a ride around the Mall and take pictures like a rank tourist. Get a snap of your bike in front of the White House. Post and you'll earn a coveted Velo Vol kudos.

Kudos. Did you Strava it? You'd be atop the walking leaderboard, if walking counted.

He was stabbed, and nonetheless went in for food instead of seeking medical care?

It was probably the “Italian” sub. You know, the died with/died from thing.

No Strava, but I did record on Fitbit. My record for one day was 46000 steps.

Thanks, but my neighborís wife is an easier get.

I was very frustrated with wordle today. I asked mrs datlas if it was a well known word. She said yes.

I finally got it on 6th try and told her it’s a very obscure word. She said wut

Turns out the NYT wordle site is not the same solution as the original wordle site. Today, the NYT solution was easy and the powerlanguage site solution was not so easy.

Mrs datlas seems quite taken by a show called “The Gilded Age.”

I find the opulence and ostentation as depicted in the show to be very distasteful. Not going to waste my time with it.

A bunch of people I know are into it because they filmed a lot of the outdoor scenes in Troy.

Pictures, and we'll decide if it's a better get.

No. The coveted one is across the street.

My wife is also watching. This is on the list of shows she enjoys where I pick up my laptop and find something else to pay attention to.

Daughter just bought her brand new, sky blue, AWD, Hyundai Kona. We gave her a down payment and let her leverage 2/3 of it herself.

She went to college on my GI bill benefits and got funding for grad school, but she’s still an expensive little project. :love:

I canít even imagine how expensive itís going to get. One lucky thing is my employer actually covers a decent amount of tuition for dependents because weíre academically owned. So if I stay that long, itíll be nice.

Thatís a great benefit. I got free and tax free medical school through my father who was faculty. Thus is privilege maintained.

Itís pretty nice. Itís not a ton of money, but sweetened the deal in deciding to come to work here. I considered leveraging the benefits for an MBA, but Iím knocking on 42 and donít really have the time. Iím also in a fairly good place career wise where I doubt lack of an MBA will set me back.

MoAlpha 02-15-22 07:13 PM

Ahhhh, when was the last time you suckiz saw “leverage” used correctly as a verb twice in one thread?

Somebody tell Bah Humbug !

Is Wordle 'broken?' Two different answers today spark outrage (nypost.com)

I tried to go to power language on my phone but it redirected to NYT
Wordle 241 3/6 ⬜⬜🟨🟨⬜🟨🟨⬜⬜🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩

LesterOfPuppets 02-15-22 07:33 PM

Oof, what happened there? Line breaks went poof?

It was some kind of gravel race. The guy was banged up but not badly hurt and finished the race. He said he saw the bull but wasn't worried it would hurt him, he was more concerned with maintaining his momentum.

One time several of us were mountain biking and a water crossing was blocked by a bunch of range cattle. While we were trying to figure out what to do this tiny girl jumped on her Yo Betty and charged the cows, yelling and hooting at them. They all scattered and I was impressed.

Yeah, I'd read about it Sunday night I think, but didn't know there was video. You can totally tell he's like damn, what's that bull gonna do? Screw it, I gotta watch my time!

I even get freaked out by horses in the road, they stare at me so weird I think they're gonna hoof me to death if I advance so I sit and stare at them from 20 yards out 'til they get bored and move along.

Wow, I'd never do that. Well maybe when I was in my 20s. :)

Oh, itís going to get expensive!

Just finished paying the full freight for two college educations. Now spending for a wedding that will cost almost as much as a bachelor's degree.

it never ends.

Cows are not a big deal. The bulls deserve some distance.

Leverage that info next time you come across a herd.

Tough night in band. Multiple people didn't have the right music and the director lost it.

Velo Vol remained calm throughout.
