  1. Franklin won't be down for his kibble

    Sad to announce my pup had to be put down the other day. 8 year old rhodesian ridgeback.....he got lung cancer somehow and there was no good option other than upwards of $10,000 surgery with no guarantee of cure so we decided to let it run its course. He was fine, other than a cough until...
  2. Sequoia National Park

    Anyone ever been? We're going up for a camping trip Friday morning, returning Sunday. This will be my wife's first tent camping trip, so easing her into it with a short, 2 day trip. Would like to do a much longer trip in the spring. We have a big ass 10x14 kodiak canvas tent which should...
  3. SoCal Fires...here we go

    Good sized fire (over 4K acres) burning about 15 or 20 miles northeast of us. Strong santa anas blowing at 20-30mph with gusts to 50 through early evening tonight. Last year's woolsey fire covered that distance in a matter of hours. Hopefully they get this one contained quickly before the...
  4. Arrested for Felony at Company Retreat

    No, not me. Curious here. Would your company fire you if you got arrested during a corporate retreat? And not just arrested, but felony arrested. So I work at a major, prestigious buy-side firm. We have a yearly retreat for 2 nights at a high end resort that changes venue every year (like...

    Legendary Ducati racer Carlin Dunne died on Pike's Peak today. He was about to set the record, riding the new Streetfighter V4 prototype and went down right before the finish. His family owns the Ducati Dealership in Santa Barbara and I corresponded with him about buying a bike...ultimately...

  7. Getting a new Motorcycle, bc CA is retarded

    So here is how retarded CA is. I moved to CA in Sept with my 2017 harley fatboy. I hardly rode it my first year, it has only 2500 miles on it. It is a "49 state bike" meaning it, even in stock from, doesn't comply with CA's commie bullshit. So...... I went in December to try to register it...

    Century City mall: LAPD respond to report of man with gun mall across the street from my work...almost walked over there for lunch. Over under on it ending up being a dude with an umbrella or cane?
  9. Woolsey Fire

    As most of you probably know, I moved to CA a few months ago...to Agoura Hills. Moving here I knew fires are a legit threat but never thought I'd have to deal with something like this only 2 months in. Lucking we are all fine, and our house was spared. As I rushed the kids to the car...
  10. JetBlue WiFi

    PSA.... JetBlue onboard WiFi does not block NES. Thought you should know. On my way to LA and was relieved to find I could check in on all you dickheads but was totally expecting a "derp no gunzes sites" error message. You may now return to your regularly scheduled nonsense.
  11. Moving to California

    So looks like it's a done deal. Waiting for the offer letter, but we spoke last night and agreed to everything. Roughly doubling my salary, getting into the right type of firm in my industry (buy side AM), huge career potential. I love a lot about southern CA, weather, landscapes, beaches...

    Can someone tell me WTF is the point of these? I want to renew my reg and it says "Insurance Stamp Required"...So I can't renew online. I have to have GEICO send me and RMV-3 form with stamp and physically go into an RMV and waste God only knows how much time. WTF is the reason that MA needs...
  14. Wild Wild Country - Netflix

    Anyone else watching this shit? I'm astounded that I've never heard of this whole thing before. This is the story of the Rajneeshee cult, followers of the Bhagwan Rajneesh crazy sex cult who essentially took over a tiny Oregon town and nearly the whole county, essentially threateing the state...
  15. How MUCH WORSE is Cali?

    Wondering, and looking for facts, not hyperbole and BS, how much worse Cali is WRT 2A than MA. I know Cali is a liberal shithole, but so is MA. I'm very seriously considering a move to LA for work. Long story short, a guy I used to work with moved there 6 years ago worked his way up and is a...
  16. Seeking Charity

    Coming here because I've seen remarkable generosity in this community. During last week's storm, a tree fell on my old boss from my previous job. He's a father and husband and an all around good guy. Sadly, the tree caused serious spinal injuries and left him paralyzed. I do not know if he...
  17. Tire Noise

    Wondering if anyone has any idea.. I have a Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. It has the stock tires with are fairly knobby. I'm getting this "pitter patter" sound coming from the tires. It's similar to when you get a rock stuck in the treads but rather than that clicking noise of the rock striking the...
  18. Coyote control?

    Wondering if anyone on here has any proven methods to safeguard around the house against coyotes.... I'm asking for my mom who is almost 70 and has 2 very small dogs. My mom has a very hard time putting weight on and literally weighs like 88 lbs. She's seen coyotes, sometimes 2-3 at a time...
  19. Aziz Ansari

    Anyone see the story about how this guy is getting railroaded over the #metoo idiocy? For those of you that don't know who he is, he's a comedian from Parks and Recreation and Master of None on Netflix. Basically, he went on a date with a woman who was the one pursuing him. During the date...
  20. JERK! Phony Cowboy

    Man...I work so hard. Harder than most probably. I'm young and most people think I'm still in college but I'm not. I work from 6am to damn near 5pm most days, and even longer many others. All I ever want after work is a quick drink at my favorite bar, the Catman. I was out celebrating...
