Hump Day Open Thread

Here we are at the most equidistant day of the week, wondering how Monday went so wrong and how to make Friday get here sooner. But you’re only wishing your life away Arrowhead Guys.

Now lets take it to the latest from Brandon “I’m just jealous my quarterback isn’t elite” Perna and see if the Raiders still suck. Spoiler alert: they do.

By the time you read this and click out to check, the Afternight thread will have begun.

And the NHL just matched the NFL for horrible missed calls that affected the playoffs dramatically

Fire_FG_the_moron
Fire_FG_the_moron

Are the NHL refs seriously as bad as NFL refs? How many games are the going to give the sharks?

WaywerdSon
WaywerdSon

4 officials on the ice and none are watching the puck?

Fire_FG_the_moron
Fire_FG_the_moron

They’ve given the Sharks 1 game in each series with shit officiating. First round game 7 – 4 powerplay goals
Second round game 7 – calling an offsides as the guy is going off the ice.
Now this shit. Pathetic.

its like when the donks won the superb owl with manning. every single iffy call went their way that whole fucking season

well, I WAS going to root for SJ, but fuck those game gifted douches, Hope the Blues win in 6

Technically the refs didn’t gift game 7 against Colorado. Your team just made a Dee Ford move.

Leaf

as a sharks fan, this is bitter sweet. Missed call, but it’s not like it was the only one of the game.

Leaf

They gave Vegas and Colorado games too. Your point?

Fire_FG_the_moron

1 more and they gift them an entire series.

While I agree it was a bad miss call, the DOG missed call for st louis led to the guy that should have been in the box scoring. It evens out

Just wrapped up Science Saturday. Unfortunately all the suggestions were stuff I don’t know much about, so I couldn’t do posts on them. But I did manage to find a topic that’s both mind blowing and allows me to embed one of the few science-based songs.

Fire_FG_the_moron

She blinded me with Science?

Tony Sommer

Nope, this is a song that’s not too well known, and even then I don’t think people realize it has a science aspect to it.

Is this a permanent name change?

No, next is Trout, followed by Poached Trout in a White Wine Sauce before the inevitable split-up.

Wednesday. That means there’s 4 more days until we can put the abomination that is Game of Thrones, season 8, to rest.

sadly D&D have been given the keys to the next Star Wars Trilogy and there was talks of it being my favorite era Old Republic, needless to say Im a lot less hyped for it than I was a couple of years ago

oof46

Both GRRM and HBO wanted more episodes for the last two seasons, but D&D were confident they could finish the story in two abbreviated seasons. Now we see they just wanted to rush through it to get to Star Wars. Shame.

Leaf

They might be okay with star wars (key word “might”). The problem with Thrones is they aren’t Martin. Martin’s creation is complex and masterfully handled. They might actually be decent writers, but they couldn’t maintain what he created.

I’m probably done watching new-release “Star Wars” movies after the way “The Last Jedi” was handled.

slackator

Id love to say I am, but I know Ill be first in line to see the next Star Wars movie every time, especially if its Old Republic and double especially if its finally not a Skywalker Saga film and Ill be singing its praises until the internet tells me how to feel

Tony Sommer

Same here. As far as I’m concerned the Disney films are expensive fan fiction.

Nasrani

Well, that ended quickly.

No kid. Horrible writing all season long. even though the outcome of the last ep wasn’t a shocker, the execution was wretched.

Drunk convo with a friend at the bar tonight. Say we kept Kareem let him serve his suspension, and this Hill stuff comes out. With Hunt on the roster serving his time would we be forced to release Hill? I said yes. If you could have either Hunt or Hill after a suspension this year which would you rather have? I said Hill

Tyrone

In terms of player value to the team, Hill by a country mile

Hunt is easier to replace. All RBs are.

after all, Hunt only kicked a women, on the other hand Hill tagged a women and a child

Kicked AT. he did not strike her. still inexcusable, but hardly the offense TMZ and others made it out to be.

. . . unbelievable

BleedingRedAndGold

This is going to sound bizarre, but with the Royals down 2-1 in the BOT 3rd, this actually feels like a game. They actually look like they have some competitive life to them.

CHIEFSandSABRES

There is a different feel to them lately.

BleedingRedAndGold

Lopez blew this game, though I’ll give him credit for pushing his count. Some credit, that is, since he gave up a two-run homer. D’oh!

Tony Sommer

We traded a 6th for LB Darron Lee.

6th round pick for a decent LB on a one year deal. I see ZERO downside to this trade.

Interesting. Ragland and Lee were Paylor’s #2 & 3 LBs. As young as Lee is, how cool would it be for Spagnuolo to utilize his strengths right off the bat?

Tyrone
Tyrone

Agree. I know nothing about the player, but it’s extremely low risk, potentially high reward.

It’s peak Veach though. Good or bad.

ForeverRanger91

6th round picks are usually PS or ST guys so I say why not.

Severely Concussed

Reading that list of Paylor’s, is a very underwhelming group of linebackers.

I came here to check if it were true, and to see why it wasn’t Patrick Peterson!?!

Tony Sommer

It takes two to tango, the Cardinals probably don’t want to trade him.

Severely Concussed

Let’s start a rumor about him, and maybe the Cards will trade him.

I heard Patrick Peterson is a cat juggler.

I heard Patrick Peterson has some unknown domestic issues that may or may not be on video or audio.

Brooke Pryor better get on that immediately.

I think Brooke Pryor believes that every man living or dead, has at one time emotionally or physically abused a female. And we all deserve to be judged by her without mercy. Due process doesn’t matter.

Didnt she just get married? Her husband come from a test-tube?

Tony Sommer

I was going to make a mean comment, but I’m feeling nice today so I’ll simply post this picture without comment.

She is such a hypocrite. All men are shit, except this guy that accepted my proposal for marriage.

Isn’t that what this modern wave of “feminism” is all about? That, and the rallying cry of “kill all men,” even if men did nothing wrong?

“It’s Monday. Kill all men!”
“The barista put too much pumpkin and not enough spice in my latte. Stupid woman. Kill all men!”

maybe you could explain scientifically why Kareem Hunt gets to play for Cleveland but not for the Chiefs!

Acoustics. Constructive and destructive interference.

Tony Sommer

That’s the problem, people are suggesting stuff I don’t know about. I guess I could do the physics of sound in general.

Sounds interesting.

Doesn’t sound/vibration hold stuff together? Seems like I read that somewhere.

Tony Sommer

No, stuff is held together by the electromagnetic force. Sound just travels through that stuff.

Sudden

The physics of power supply/electricity, particularly in its application to highly power-intensive industrial or commercial facilities and their operations.

I may have had to learn a bunch of this on the fly recently and it’s piqued my interest.

Tony’s got a question below, sounds sciencey

KC Dude (A.K.A Zif)

How about the science behind graphene, and it’s potential uses?

Nasrani
Nasrani

Why, if we theorized for so long about dark matter/dark energy, we are only just now realizing that it’s there.

KC Dude (A.K.A Zif)

Because it can’t be mass produce, packaged, and sold like the creamy center of an Oreo cookie.

Nasrani

That’s as good an explanation as I’ve heard about it.
