I know the Bears used William Perry in a few plays from scrimmage but he wasn't really a RB.

I'm astounded by how quick some of those 300+ pound linemen are, but they are not fast.

At least, that's what I want to believe....

When I was working one of my reasons for not wanting a cell phone was the fact that I was dealing with computers for 9 hours a day. Programming them, trying to figure out why they wouldn't program, why they wouldn't talk to the other computers on the car or the computers in the shop, or why they wouldn't do what they were supposed to do or why they did what wasn't supposed to be possible.

I no longer have that excuse.

Oh, they're fast. If one of 'em was chasing you, or any mere mortal, they'd be ******g scary. It's just that they share the field with people that are inhumanly fast.

Rabbis are badass. Who knew?

In my case the tool would be in that Chevy, at the customer's house or job. Later on I tried to make a habit of wheeling my cart next to the car and put tools in the cart instead of under the hood of the car. I was not entirely successful. Plus, there were at least 10 cars per day to fool with.

One guy had a wheel fall off of an Astro van, then a motorhome, then a Corvette within a few months. Third one got him fired. Seen a number of cars fall off lifts but it never happened to me, luckily.
A few years ago a lot porter from a nearby dealer crashed a Z06 Corvette he was delivering to a customer. Thye said he was going over 100 mph in a 35 mph zone when he went airborne, bounced off several parked cars and a couple buildings. He was not hurt and didn't hit anyone else.

There is a show called Auto Biography. They have one about an Enzo which was crashed and split in half on Pacific Coast Highway. Amazing story, I recommend it.

When I was still working in the lab, I used to be very particular about laying out everything I needed for larger experiments, so I could just work my way through them. Small experiments, not so much. That generally involved trying to remember where things were on the fly.

Nowadays, when I'm rebuilding a bike, I lay out the tools I'll need, the parts I'm using, the little bits like cable ends and stuff like that. But as I'm going through it, I just put tools down when I'm not using them and I end up having to hunt for things. Usually it's the 5mm Allen key that I'm looking for.

Me too!

I donít know the difference between NFT and FTP. I just want to wear a watch and ride a bike.

Some of them are. You probably never heard of Larry Allen, a left tackle who once ran down a linebacker on the opposite side of the field. It was so freaky you have to watch it more than once.

Slow night. Everyone must be watching this. SMH

I have a book with pictures of watches in it. It cost considerably less than any of the featured watches.

After 3 I figured it was one of two words. I picked the wring one and ended up at 5.

It's funny that I have played 3 times and have only gotten a yellow once.

If you took a picture of the book at the time shown on the cover watch, you could maybe sell it as a NFT.
