I guess I understand that there was a bit of a perfect storm in that particular game, in terms of slowing down the pace. The rain didn't help. The fact that 4/5ths of the crowd left early is somewhat outside anyone's control. It happens, just like that Wednesday night game where the Canes lose to Phoenix 6-1 with no fights and the place is all but empty at the end. I feel bad for people that go to their first game on a night like that.

But on the other side of the coin, they could also change the *** damn rules and make baseball a 21st Century sport. What's more important, allowing pitchers to check a runner 10 times in a row, or having children interested enough in the sport to become pitchers? Allowing unlimited timeouts, or having enough noise in the stadium to drown out the sound of grass growing?

I LOVED baseball as a kid. I loved it a long time before I even knew a thing about hockey, basketball or football. My best sports memories from ages 2-12 are baseball related. But honestly, it's starting to approach opera/dogshow/golf territory as far as "watch this 10,000 times and you'll acquire a taste for it" appeal. Something has gone wrong with the sport on an internal level when the players look bored by what's happening at the end of a tie game.

Everything I've seen out of the Bulls organization has been top-notch, particularly considering it's a minor league outfit. Their social media marketing is better than the Hurricanes'. Their marketing to kids is at least on par, maybe better. And it's not that the Canes do a crummy job... the Bulls are just really good from what I've seen.

Can't say much about concessions as I've only been to about half a dozen games there and I usually grab food before or after.

My Verizon fiOS service disconnected sometime around 9:30 AM Friday. They were not able to help me on the phone. A technician finally made it out here this afternoon. He won't outright call me a liar, but claims that it is impossible for me to have ever had service (I've had television and Internet for two months). We have both gone into the crawl space and he has shown me where the wire from the living room goes through the wall into my bedroom where it is connected to absolutely nothing.

This is the most disturbing thing I've ever seen. AM I CRACKING UP?

Yes. I'm sorry you had to find out this way.

BTW, there is no HFBoards.

I just went back into the crawl space and went through every single inch of the wire. It goes nowhere.

I might have schizophrenia. But I'm pretty sure I have multiple witnesses who have watched TV here. Unless they're in my head.

Anyone have any foolproof Java troubleshooting solutions? I have online HW that uses a Java app and after I downloaded the latest version and turned it on in Chrome just nothing will show up and then my whole computer will slow down drastically (it's a brand new computer). Then I tried it in a couple other browsers, and the same thing happened.

Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Need some help here...

This is where the cable goes through the wall into a closet from the TV box and router.



This is inside the closet where the wire comes through.



This is where the wire goes from the closet through the wall into the attic.



This is where the cable goes through the attic. I didn't crawl in here with the camera but I crawled in twice without it and went over every inch of the cable. The cable then goes through the wall...



And ends here.

And always has.

HELP

That's freaky. If I had to guess...Magic. Definitely magic.

I'm pretty sure I've got a ghost in my room. The fan in my room randomly turns on and off. So, it's either a ghost or faulty wiring.

Clearly we're all an illusion that has been created by Coop's subconscious to convince him that he has internet access.

Maybe a raccoon stole it while you were asleep. Damn masked bandits...

But honestly, I have no idea how that could happen.

Either I'm losing my mind or there's a ghost. There is literally no other answer.

That would be an incorrect statement.

Maybe they're playing some massive prank on you. There's another wire somewhere. Or you're in the Truman Show, that's another option.

I thought of the Truman Show possibility and my first instinct was to wonder how much I could sue for.

I will be pulling the entire cable all the way out through all the walls when I get home today. There's got to be a splitter hiding somewhere in there.

A further alternative is that Coop is in the matrix. In which case the question is, how do you look in black leather/vinyl clothing?

Or my crazy mind reading trick. Check this out.

Pick any whole number. In your head, right now pick a number.

Now.... Take that number, annnnnnnddd.... double it.

Now... hmmmmmm.... add..... ten.

Now... Take THAT number, and.... divide it.... in half.

I'm getting one last feeling here........ Subtract the number that you originally started with.

Scroll down to see if I was right.





















Did you end up with:

5

Pretty crazy eh?
