If this were true, you'd know there's more than 10,000 people there. So spare me.

what are you talking about?

I sit in the pits every race.

You're off running your mouth about something you have no clue about, show me anything that says that hosting a race at COTA would decrease TMS attendance.

Of does it just hit you in the feels...

see more

From that vantage point it should be pretty clear that the stands have more than 10k people in them. I've never claimed to have specific evidence that a race at COTA will lower TMS' attendance, other than the fact that I did see a noticeable drop in attendance when the Houston GP ran.

I generally donate to specific scholarship funds/booster clubs, rather than to the university directly. I have had some issues with the alumni department as a whole in the past, plus this ensures it goes to causes I specifically support.

What invention is there? How do you know all his life experiences and stories he may have heard?

Well, Col. Sanders died in 1980. Mr. Schnatter would have been 19 at this time. Again, there's no evidence to support the claim that Col. Sanders ever used the word, and considerable evidence that he did not. That's not to say Sanders was without his race-related issues, he certainly had those problems, but again, even nearly 40 years ago he knew better than to use the word in question.

My dad, brother and I are meeting in Portland and headed to the race on Sunday.

Or libertarian.

I am proud to say that, despite being a tried and true liberal, I voted for the Libertarian candidate for Railroad Commissioner in 2014 and 2016. In part because they were the only person who ran for the position who actually knew what the commission did.

It's the secret handshake of Texas. "What does the Railroad Commission regulate?"

see more

I wish that many people knew what it regulated. The fact that the Republicans and Democrats both nominated people who had no idea was... well, concerning.

You don't live in Dallas, do you? They most certainly aren't "mostly retirees."

see more

I live in Irving. There's certainly an influx from Toyota and a couple other places here, and it's been killer on rent. But statewide, the largest single group is retirees.

That said, I don't think "don't Californiaize Texas" is going to play well with that group of transplants.

2 points · 1 day ago

I don't know, they left California for a reason. Most of the transplants I know like the lower taxes and actual gun rights.

see more

Most of them left California because they wanted to, you know, still have a job.

And what you have there is confirmation bias. Most the transplants I know think Ted Cruz is one of the biggest jokes in politics (which is likely also confirmation bias, I fully admit).

Dude, you need to just let it go. They film several acts every day in quick succession in order to make the production efficient and cost effective. They're not going to buff the floor after every single act.

People hate Eddie.

Fuck that. I love the silly bastard. Listen to his Dinner With Racers episode. Top notch stuff.

What I don't like is how TMS is doing business. It is the job of TMS to figure out how to make profit off of holding events. If they can not figure out how to do it without exclusivity, they need to get to the drawing board and do some work. Exclusivity contracts are lazy and Eddie Gossage is a god damned genius and I expect so much more from him and SMI.

see more

When your margins are super thin, as they likely are for the IndyCar race, then you need every advantage you get. I'm pretty convinced that this is going to eventually mean the end of IndyCar at TMS, and that will quickly mean the end of IndyCar in Texas because there's no way the higher costs at COTA are going to last for IndyCar.

You can’t lose 10k in attendance when 10k don’t show up to begin with.

Hi. I've been to every IndyCar race in Texas since 2012. There's been well over 10k every year. Thanks for playing "I don't know what I'm talking about". While you don't win, you do get a lovely copy of our home game.

Despite the tag, that info could be useful if you missed the sparkles for a shiny that's barely different from the normal colors.

or if you're colorblind

7 points · 3 days ago

If colorblind, the name color wouldn’t matter either...

see more

Well, there are several types of colorblindness. If you're red/green colorblind this will help because the shiny Pokemon sometimes are switching from blue to purple, which is really hard to see, but white to yellow would be very easy to see. Either way, the name will be darker because it has a color other than white, so it should be easy for most colorblind people to tell.

Iron Man 3 was much worse than 2. 2 featured Sam Rockwell dancing for Christ's sake! I would put Justice League somewhere in the Thor/Thor: Dark World realm. Fine, but forgettable. Didn't make me mad or very happy.

see more

Iron Man 2 wasn't a movie. It had no theme, nothing to say. It had Sam Rockwell, but that alone doesn't make a movie.

If having Sam Rockwell alone doesn't make a movie, explain Moon. Was the problem with Iron Man 2 that it had too few Sam Rockwells? Well, that my friend is just setting the bar a little too high. I actually agree, but too few studios have the balls to even try it.

see more

Moon also had a story and an extremely coherent thematic purpose. Moon had a lot of very interesting things to say about life and what it means to be a human.

I'm not sure what Iron Man 2 had to say about anything other than "hey, go see other Marvel movies".

Yeah, that's what I was worried about... I don't know enough about her brother to avoid things like that, and I don't think anyone but her and her family would. Thank you. <3

Be good!

Original Poster2 points · 4 days ago

Alright, thank you.

I know that's not an easy thing to hear, but honestly there's not really a right way to grieve, and every person has to find their own path. If you steer, you might accidentally steer into something that is a sensitive issue. An example: You might, say, suggest you get ice cream and accidentally order her brother's favorite flavor. I know that seems silly but even little things like that can be really hard and a reminder of what is gone. Just be there for her, and enter with an open mind and an open heart.

Ted Musgrave. I think had he won at Roush, even when Roush sent him to the winds he would have been able to get another ride on a top tier team.

I guess it depends on what you're looking for as far as a show like PoI. If it's the random people helping strangers through some vaguely sci-fi contraption, I suggest Quantum Leap or Early Edition. They're both older shows, but they're great for binge watching.

Well, Bear doesn't know about The Machine. He just knows he's a good boy.

Ah I see, I don't think they'd do that as it would be exposure.

If they wanted to do that, they could do it for Kostya's second appearance, since there's no 'trick' and that was the trick, and he went through the other methods he could use.

Toyota Grand Prix of Austin?

Toyota's US is based out of Plano.

So if anything it'd be the Toyota 600 at TMS.

I agree with everything here. I totally want that guy to make a puppet version of me.

On first draft I listen to a lot of different stuff. When doing a rewrite I have a specific playlist of movie scores, most notably The Fugitive.

I do the specific playlist from the start of the first draft. It really puts me in the mood to get big chunks of pages done.

If I listen to one playlist during my first draft I find I get sick of it or get caught in the same beats over and over again, but I know plenty of people it works for!

How about just limiting it to service animals as defined by the ADA?

Because the ADA has no jurisdiction of air travel, for starters.

EDIT: You can downvote this all you like, but the Air Carrier Access Act supersedes the ADA so the ADA does not apply the second you set foot on an aircraft.

PRACTICE! (slaps head in sudden realization) THAT’S what I should have done! Dagnamit!! For real though - this WAS actually the first (and only) time I ever performed this in front of anyone. so yes - I agree; it was pretty darn rusty.. it’s not my usual act.. I’ve been doing that for years... and I have no excuse for that being just as rusty! 🤪

see more

I actually really enjoyed your act and your performance. I could see a little nerves, but that's certainly to be expected given the circumstances, and I can't say I would have done any better as I still have no idea how you did it!

Original Poster5 points · 7 days ago

I couldnt tell if it was nerves or a need of fine tuning. For many performers this is a huge opportunity and it will make even seasoned pros get nervous. Youre not just performing, youre being hyper analyzed.

see more

Yeah, and since this was clearly an act designed just for the show, it's one of those times where as much as he has probably practiced it's different when you are doing an act that's probably not been seen by very many people.

He says it all the time.

Hence why, as Jillette explains below, he and Teller have endeavored to increase the profile of female magicians and performers on this season of Fool Us.

There's nothing in there about intentionally throwing a competition. Indeed, this is the only thing it says about the subject:

It’s not just noticeable, it’s explicit and discussed behind the scenes. This year we did a bit that me and Teller are simply physically too old to do, but we still wanted it on the show. So we decided to get a couple of younger magicians in to do it, and we stressed that they had to be women. It’s basically a Penn & Teller bit that isn’t done by us, but by two fabulous up-and-coming magicians, Jen Kramer and AmberLynn Walker. I’ve got to tell you, it was one of the most thrilling moments of the season. They just absolutely kill it. I don’t mind saying my daughter is thrilled there are two women doing a Penn & Teller bit on the show, and that’s what it’s all about. So if you noticed that in season three, we’re going to hit you in the face with a baseball bat this season.

I have never seen anyone say that they intentionally threw the competition on the show.

There hasn't been as much of that this season. This act and the Australian lady are two of my favorite acts of the season so far. Both were very quick. And both involved milk. That's weird.
