Re: On a scale of 0-10, how worried are you about coronavirus?

China is a bassackward country. I friend went there to adopt a girl, she said "it's a dirty, nasty country". Have you traveled, or know friends or family, that have traveled in Europe? I am hearing more and more say that Europe is getting the same way. Filthy. Dirty. Not pleasant to be in. I've nev...

For me, it's the Plexiderm commercials. That's literally a channel changer for me.

Re: Ink Jet Printer

Went out today and bought the cheapest HP in the store. $44.00. Paid an extra 5 bucks for a two year warranty that covers everything. And just keep buying them. As far as I'm concerned, it's cheaper to buy a new printer, than go out and get more cartridges for the one I got. Use it up, toss the who...

Re: Scripps is in trouble yet again for workplace harassment!

It's a broadcast station - you work a lot of holidays, comes with the turf. If you're low man on the seniority pole, you work the holiday. No matter what you're religion is. When I had little seniority where I worked, I guarantee you the boss would of laughed until he peed his pants if I said: "I'm...

Re: Clinton says Gabbard is Russian plant...

I still stand by the argument I made in another thread. Out of all the current Democratic candidates, Gabbard was the one with the best chance of beating Trump. But she's done. If you remember, she was starting to become a bit of a media darling until she dissed Clinton on The View. Since then, you ...

So the return of Emery King to local news has a zero percent chance at happening with this?
Hopefully it is zero percent.
If half the suggestions in this thread come to pass, I'm going to buy stock in Geritol.

Re: Gun rights rally, no violence

I need an explanation why so many of the folks who were passionate about gun rights showed up in "costume".
I'm not critiquing what they stand for.
But was the paratrooper, dressed to the hilt show really necessary?
Kind of takes the "take me seriously" off the table, if you ask me anyway.

Virginia Beach for sure; north Texas summers are brutally hot!
No doubt. My brother lives in Fort Worth.
He says it get hot enough that if you forget and touch something outside that's metal, you get burnt.
That's too toasty for me.

Re: Jason Carr - WDIV

Does anyone but myself think that Jason Carr is full of himself? Watch the news and Live in the D. He always brings up what he has or what he has done. Like home improvements or trips just to name a couple. I can’t watch Live in the D anymore. That sucks because Tati is cool. No matter what you mak...

Re: Debate MIA?

Interesting exchange. Seems like Tom Steyer is trying to separate the boxers after the bell for the round went off. But I'm not sure it was a deliberate snub by Warren. It seems more like she wanted to use her hands to make a point, instead of not wanting to shake his hand. I could be wrong. Watchin...

Re: Little investigating by on air investigative reporters

After reading a reply to a comment I made on another thread, I got to thinking about this thread, and investigative reporters. What if these reporters investigating the 696 Ooze would of went into the closest pub or lounge, bought a round for the house, and asked folks there what they knew about it....

Re: November 2019 TV News Ratings

No. Devin Scillian is one of the oldest anchors and he’s still number one. Oh wait—you’re referring to the women. Of course you are. Jerk. Can we agree the #1 goal of a local newscast is to get as many people as possible to watch? So, and I'm honestly going extreme here to make a point: Let's say o...

Re: November 2019 TV News Ratings

As others have noticed on here, I'm kind of a broken record saying that the younger and "easier on the eyes" the folks in front of the camera are, the more people are going to watch.
Now am I higher than the cost of living, thinking that this latest rating chart proves me right?

I just don't understand why people feel they need to blame climate change on someone or some thing. I mean, it is what it is. That is the nature of things. Extreme weather conditions would still be happening whether or not we existed. The Earth has been through many different climates throughout ti...
