Couldn't happen to a nicer state. Cut funding, whittle away at all public health infrastructure, turn public education into a anachronistic joke, continually vote idiots into office, blah blah. Wrap yourself in an American flag and put a bible in front of your face, that'll protect you. Here in Atlanta, we took in TWO… » 10/15/14 6:14am 10/15/14 6:14am

so, wow, I've never even heard of this. Just looked it up and while I don't have most of the characteristics of synesthesia, I've assigned genders to numbers and letters since I was in preschool, and yeah, I just thought it was some weird thing I did.

As a former Bucs fan (20+ years) who moved to ATL in '96 and switched to the Falcons after the Bucs fired Tony Dungy, this is nothing but sweet, sweet awesomeness. And Devin Hester, who I was so excited to acquire this season but so many said was washed up, just ran a punt return back for ANOTHER touchdown. At this… » 9/18/14 9:35pm 9/18/14 9:35pm

I took my 12-year old to the store the other day to stock up on personal products. He wanted a shampoo/conditioner combo so I was cracking a bunch open and sniffing (to make sure they weren't too flowery smelling or whatever). One was supposedly "menthol and caffeine" (whatever that means) that smelled OK, so I… » 9/10/14 10:36am 9/10/14 10:36am
