  1. Okay, @ColoradoHusk has said to wait a week but if you have emailed someone (that you work with) and they have not emailed back (yet), how long do you wait until you shoot them another email about the same topic?

      I've probably put way too much thought in to this.  For me, if it's not urgent, it depends on the day of the week.  If I email someone on Monday or Tuesday, I'm usually following up on Friday.  If it is later in the week that I send the initial email, I usually wait until the following Monday or Tuesday to follow up.

      @GSG LOL I'll admit I'm the same way. I don't answer the phone unless it's certain people or a superior.

       

      I have a coworker that always tries to call me when I ask him the simplest questions through Slack. It's like... dude... take 30 sec. and just send me a response. You don't have to always call me.

       

      I'm also on the phone or on a call 50% of my day so Slack is usually a better way to reach me.

      Maybe I am just weird, I respond to emails pretty much the moment I get them, if I can.

      March/April- Pandemic, coronavirus, Covid

      May- Murder Hornets and riots

      June- Race War, possible Marshall law and military involvement

      July- ??? Alien Invasion ???

      August- ??? Vampires ???

      Sept/Oct/Nov- Will the football team still struggle?
       

      Ah Murder Hornets. The good ole days.

      The problem is, none are going away. They just keep piling up and getting worse.

  3. Just went to Walmart, they closed at 4:30 and had barricaded up the doors.  Hy Vee closing at 6:30.  I think Target was closed all day.  These were all west O locations.

      I have a red Russell Athletic Husker #15 jersey that I bought in 1992. It was worn to many, many home games played between 1993 and 1999. It hasn't fit for a very long time, but it still hangs in my closet, next to the two #7s (red and white) and my Ahman Green Packers jersey.

       

       

       

  8. Smoked some shrimp today.  Dry rub of your choice.  Then melt about 2 sticks of butter, worcestershire sauce, and lemon...Pour it in the foil pan with the shrimp.  Smoke at 250 for about 25-30 minutes.  Eat the shrimp and get a loaf of French Bread to dip in the sauce...UNREAL

      Nope...275 was as high as I went.  And it was not all that great!  I have heard only good things about smoking Papa Murphy's pizza.  I just didn't get it hot enough. 

    3. JJ Husker

      JJ Husker

      Yeah, it's really more like grilling it or getting it to wood fired pizza temp. Smoking a pizza is a bit of a misnomer. I bet you'll like it a lot more when you try at a higher temp. Like I say I'm no expert but I'd guess you need to be minimum 350 and preferably about 400+, much the same as if you did it in your oven but with a little smokey goodness.

    4. teachercd

      Yeah...I am not doing it again at 275...but I wanted to try it out and see.

      @Moiraine same here. I've eaten "out" more since this started, but it's either delivered or put directly into my trunk by the staff.

       

      It's just sometimes hard to find the energy to cook right now.

      Well yeah to Porky's. Although I'm not sure you can get away with a high-school kid peeping and getting his schlong cranked on through a hole in a wall today!

       

      I'm biased by how much I love the original but I think a Back to the Future reboot could be good fun. Although if the eras are adjusted the kid would be going back to the 80s or 90s so it might turn out a bit like Hot Tub Time Machine.

    3. teachercd

      Danny, that is interesting!  

      I think you almost have to make it like Hot Tub, sort of joking on itself.

      If it turns out like that I'd be fine with it,  Hot Tub was a good movie.

      Spotify. I have tried them all. I listen to music everyday. I pay for the premium version of course since it is way better. 

    3. Xmas32

      Xmas32

      Amazon Music although it appears Spotify is a little better on the curated playlist part.  Since I'm an existing Prime customer I got to try it out for .99/mo for 3 months or something crazy cheap and now it's only $8/mo which seems cheaper than the alternatives.

    4. 308_Husker

      308_Husker

      Youtube Music is nice, but the inconsistency in volume levels from song to song sometimes makes it hard to listen to. That issue mainly occurs from playlists of various songs.

       

      I prefer Pandora to Spotify for the reason BigRedBuster mentioned. I can just click and listen.

      One of the more interesting things about all this is going to be the aftermath.  How does society change?  I could see a situation where society is opened back up, but at least for a period of time some people don't have a desire or feel comfortable in big crowds like game days.  Some people will run out as fast as they can do do those things.  Others won't.  That could affect some people's jobs.

      Huh, I didn't know Genesis has locations up in Nebraska these days. They're based in Wichita, and owned by the same family as Spangles, so I think of them as a Kansas thing.

      For DirectTV I first contacted them on Twitter...then I DM'ed them...they gave me a number and ext.  I called and they already knew it was me and went right with a "Oh we have a new promotion, you can keep everything you currently have and we will knock your bill down to 44 a month"

    4. teachercd

      Yeah, Genesis has been here for probably 5 years now?

      Historical - Not sure if that's technically the term.  But, 1917 is a prime example.  GREAT movie.  Not necessarily non-fiction, but it's based on true events.

      Comedy - but my tolerance for stupid humor (Dumb and Dummer type movies) has gone down as I've gotten older.

      Suspense
