    i don't know why that made me laugh. it's a sensible use of money though, especially for a college student.

    I want that air fryer from Sams Club, but don't know if it is any good.

    Everyone wants an air fryer these days. I watched some YouTube vids on it and I wasn't really sold on it.

    Damn, my dumb ass bought 8.8lbs of Chicken Drumsticks thinking they were drummettes at Costco. Was massively disappointed today when I realized they were full drumsticks.
    At least it was 79 cents per pound!

    but damn, I have 16 lbs of chicken thighs and drumsticks to get through now

    make smoked wings. It's a bit more work but tastes better than fried imo.

    Fried up some chicken for dinner. 2 thighs and a drumstick, brined in pickle juice for >day, then soaked in buttermilk for at least 4hrs before breading and frying.

    Was good, but man I am gonna get sick of it real quick.

    I should try that. My smoker is still at my buddy's house from SB weekend. I would get it but its such a PITA to drive out there and pack it up and them jam it into my car and scuff/leave grease marks on everything, and then carry it from my parking spot to my apartment. Might as well get it this week though.

    I smoked chicken thighs a while back and they were alright. Chicken skin gets all weird when smoked, kinda ruins it imo.

    You were thinking of your days back in Compton.

    I hate doing this but every time I hear someone smokes cigs now, I feel obligated to ask them if they've tried quitting.

    Have you tried cutting back or quitting?
    It takes the average person 7 times to quit smoking cigs (and conveniently, also leave an abusive relationship), so keep trying!

    EDIT: Someone should try making a bong out of a Costco rotisserie chicken

    Republican Healthcare Proposal sucks. Obamacare Lite. It's better than nothing though.

    Apparently some conservative Repubs are working on their own bill after seeing how crappy Obamacare Lite is.


    What most people don't realize is that millions are going to lose health insurance regardless of what happens. Insurers have been steadily pulling out and leaving millions without coverage. Blue Cross and UnitedHealth are losing hundreds of millions of dollars and are likely to pull out within a few years as well, leaving pretty much no major insurer left on the gov't exchange. Can't have health insurance if no one is willing to sell.

    Additionally, the ACA is so entrenched in our economy and took so much gov't intervention to implement that you can't just rip it off all at once, and it's going to take way more government to make any changes.

    I was at Walmart last night buying some Powerade and Texas Toast. In front of me was a lady with a shopping cart with at least 50 2 liter bottles of Coke. She also had a bunch of coffee filters and sweetened condensed milk. WTF does someone do with that much Coke?

    What about this wall with Mexico? Can't we use prison labor to build the damned thing?

    I hope Trump starts a GoFundMe / donation fund. Donate a certain amount and you can have a personalized brick.

    I'd donate and dedicate one to my late grandfather, Bill DeWall. He would have been so proud.

    saw a guy on a motorcycle smash into a car that pulled out in front of him near HCC. Dude's left tibia was snapped like a twig. The firefighters cut off his sock and bottom of his jeans and you could see his bone sticking out. Don't think I could ever be an EMT or some type of first responder. Was nasty.

    That's not nasty at all. They also come to 911 calls for "welfare checks" when the person has not been seen for a while. Gotta love the smell of decomp! Or when there is a bad accident and the person's skull is split open with brain matter oozing out. They have to try and resuscitate the person.

    oh I remember your decomp stories lol. Ya that's about as bad as can get. When I was in high school a guy riding his motorcycle was making a turn and got smashed by an oncoming car. Dude smacked his head on a traffic light pole and his head split open. When they picked him up his brains spilt out onto the road. After that I told myself I'd never get on a motorcycle in my life. It's already scary enough driving in this damn town in a car lol.
