back and better than something

Have you ever wondered why commercials always tout things as the best ____ ever built.  For example, Chevy and their new Malibu.  They finish the commercial with "the best malibu ever".  Well of course you think that.  I you weren't making improvements to the product, why would you redesign it.  I know that designers don't think..."gee, this is a pretty good product, lets see if we can make one that's not quite as good."  Microsoft is the same way.  Well if windows 8 didn't have "advances in technology" then you wouldn't spend all the r&d money to develop it.

You can never have enough flash drives.

The CU job search debacle has gone crazy.  Now Mike Bohn (who i know from my Idaho days, and hate) is being called a racist.  4-21, black or white, and people quit showing up to games..you're gonna get fired.  A guy I work with is a CU season ticket holder, and for the Utah game last week, they sent out an email offering as many tickets as you want, all you had to pay was the $1.50 handling fee.  So he got 4 extra tickets for $6.

I've spent a lot of time in Idaho the last couple weeks, and that feels like home to me.  The big difference now though when I go there, I notice that everyone is a redneck/country.  Meiz would love it and hate it there.  But my cousin just bought a 4 bedroom house pretty close to Boise for $115k, and his mom bought a 3 bedroom condo for $85k.  That's pretty f'ing cheap...the housing bubble hit them pretty hard, but sheesh.  It's not like it's Kansas or nebraska...Boise is a nice place to live.

The big story in Boise the 2 weeks i was there was this.  They talked about it on the news non-stop for 4 days.  Even breaking into the football game to announce that they had made an arrest.

When will the russian roulette of college football realignment end?  I'm moving towards agreeing with Nick Saban that they should have roughly 70-80 schools in D-1, and those teams should not be allowed to "play down" against the other divisions.  Then again, he's pissed because he won't be going to a BCS bowl this year.

Arkansas is trying to hire Les Miles?  I don't think that sounds very ethical.  I think he has a job.

does boise have bagels?

85K for a condo i'll take three

tem said...

maybe les asked them 1st. sometimes people who have jobs go to idaho to look for another job.

Meiz said...

Boise talk.

My parents are looking lightly at a condo up north in the same town our cabin is in. Only 58K for one that is move-in ready. If they had jobs up there, I'd be all over that shit.

tem said...

why would you buy three condos for $255k when you could buy a mansion for that?

you need separate places for all your family to live who move with you?

BLUE said...

Yeah, it had always been cheap once you got about 20 miles outside of Boise, but now shit is cheap in town...less than it was when I gradumuated from collitch.

BLUE said...

" If they had jobs up there, I'd be all over that shit."

that's the problem...no jobs

tem said...

i hear SYSCO is hiring there

Jugdish said...

and if they had yobs, then housing would be more expensive

BLUE said...

probably true

BLUE said...

chicken/egg issue

tem said...

if they let developers develop nice homes then housing prices would go up.

bunch of damn hippies in boise stopping development.

Jugdish said...

most of the people in boise don't like houses to go up behind their own house.

BLUE said...

oh they have some nice houses.


but if people can't afford to buy those nice houses, then prices don't go up. builders go out of business.

Bald Fat Weasel said...

JOBS
JOBS
JOBS

BLUE said...

there are pockets of areas where housing prices are similar to Denver

tem said...

afford is a problem 2 years from now. buy it now. it'll take 2 years before you figure out you can't afford it.

tem said...

and by then someone will have a job and can afford it and they will bail you out.

uninsured drivers suck. cmtp got hit by a guy without insurance and we took him to small claims court for the deductable that we had to pay. I think it was $500. it probably wasn't worth it, but I didn't want the guy to walk away without paying for anything



Yeah but winning the judgment doesn't mean you'll necessarily get paid. Did you ever get money from the dude?

Keef said...

Solo says she's happy in her marriage



Fucking espn. It's been, what, 2 weeks?

Meiz said...

Solo and Lolo. These broads need to be stopped.

tem said...

or put in a three way with elmo.

BLUE said...

elmo doesn't like broads

Keef said...

Or adults

BLUE said...

alledgedly

tem said...

what better way to wean him onto adult broads than a 3 way with solo and lolo?

tem said...

you guys aren't letting elmo explore his options.

tem said...

saw something where CU was getting beat by Fresno State or something by 40 points in the 2nd QTR.

"4 bedroom house pretty close to Boise for $115k"


EFFFFFFFFFFFFFF YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOU IDAHO.

Tyler said...

Here's your job in Idaho: buy four properties, live in one, rent out the others.

Meiz said...

Boom. Land Baron Blue.

Tyler said...

4/3, 2700 sq ft, in the Boise 'burbs for $229k. Ridiculous.

Bald Fat Weasel said...

that wouldnt work

Bald Fat Weasel said...

it's buy four properties rent three and become shift manager at mickey d

Tyler said...

If I could sell my stupid condo and then bought that house for $229k, my mortgage would be $694/month and that's with insurance and property taxes.

Looks like I'm moving to Boise.

Tyler said...

I could afford $694/month on a mickey d's shift manager salary.

BLUE said...

"Here's your job in Idaho: buy four properties, live in one, rent out the others."

trust me, the thought has crossed my mind.

especially when I drove through my cousin's neighborhood and there are houses for sale all over it. He said probaby 75% of the people in his neighborhood rent too.

i'm like, hells yeah.

Bald Fat Weasel said...

trust me, the thought has crossed my mind.


no
/cmblue

BLUE said...

when the housing bubble was high, Boise, and Denver as well, had a huge influx of people from CA where they had sold their houses in CA, taken the equity from the sale, and paid cash for a bigger house here.

Thus no house payment, and all they did was move to a different state.

Tyler said...

One of my bosses moved to Denver and bought a house. And he did it as a first-time home buyer. He got a huge house for what would be a condo out here.

BLUE said...

guy that lives down the street from me did that. He makes like $50k/year and owns a $450k house

BLUE said...

but, he has to live in Denver, and we all know that there are no restaurants or good jobs that can only be done in certain places here.

tem said...

exactly. /lp

does the guy with a huge house need a roommate? /meiz

Sure. Bucks will lose at home. Unless the fans can get Larry Sanders fired up.

BLUE said...

Meiz said...

And Jennings needs to establish his position in Melo's head early on.

Meiz said...

The Newborn Giraffe needs to get the spring shoes on tonight too.

"Unless the fans can get Larry Sanders fired up"

Garry Shandling?

Bald Fat Weasel said...

DDL texted sally fields in character as lincoln for the 7 months leading up to the shooting of the film

What slouch on that roster is Tobias gonna cook tonight?

Bald Fat Weasel said...

"Sure. Bucks will lose at home. Unless the fans can get Larry Sanders fired up."

Either way, some tall cat is getting yammed on tonight. The Bucks kids DGAF.

corner, he stands in the corner and rains threes

I have no idea where Tyler lives. I like to think Malibu.

Aitch said...

Anne Hathaway NSFW

Yea, I'm sure you'd kick her out of bed, EP.

Meiz said...

"corner, he stands in the corner and rains threes"

But he's gotta go somewhere on D, right? Or does he just run to the opposite corner? Henson's gonna get one of those jumpers.

Bald Fat Weasel said...

somewhere around Westwood area

Bald Fat Weasel said...

"Yea, I'm sure you'd kick her out of bed, EP."

i'd eat her ass

doesnt mean i cant think she is ugly

maybe its all the pr for Les Mis she is doing

Bald Fat Weasel said...

"But he's gotta go somewhere on D, right?"

he dont guard the paint, if he is guarding the sg or sf depending on the lineup he'll faceguard then let the guy blow by him hoping tyson blocks the shot or takes a charge

"maybe its all the pr for Les Mis she is doing"

no one is saying we wouldnt fuck the living shit out of her

you never fucked an ugly chick before?

You can advance to week 10 now

Keef said...

Fuck, I ran over to HD to get more Xmas lights and was going t stop at the gas station to get a power ball ticket. Then I forgot to stop at the gas station

Jorts couldn't save us! said...

so you just saved $2

Keef said...

Osu better beat Dook

tem said...

You won $2. Send us each $0.01

Keef said...

If I had $350 million, I'd buy every combination of numbers and win $200 million

tem said...

you'd win slightly more than that because you'd win a lot of the smaller prizes . But after taxes you'd be behind. And if you split the jackpot with anyone you'd be waaay behind.

Meiz said...

Ha, somebody tried to shame me tonight for dropping $20 on the lottery.

ns


Surprised it wasn't Keith.

sss

Keef said...

I wouldn't shame someone for gambling

Meiz said...

Yeah, I was going to do it anyway, and I'm using staying way under budget on Vegas as reasoning, too.

Keef said...

I wish I could use that reasoning

Meiz said...

NBA, slots, and Blackjack on Fremont saved my ass before NFL punched me in the face.

Meiz said...

Oh! And double dipping on the Texans when we got back to Bill's on Sunday too.

Meiz said...

But really, going 4/4 on the NBA Saturday night was ya-HUGE.

Keef said...

Giants screwed me or I would have been up about $100
