  1. The lowest price you remember a McDonald's Cheeseburger being...go.

    I will start.  I think...for me the first time I remember the price, they were .69 cents.

  2. Seeing articles about packed beaches over the 4th.  My question:  why on Earth do people enjoy this?  Pandemic or not...

    This is like trying to manage getting in and out of North Stadium without the enjoyment of attending an actual football game...

      I'll gladly take the local lake where we pull our boat up to the point with about 5-10 other boats.  A beach like that doesn't look fun to me.  I'll take a beach with very few people any day.

      I'm sure, when I was a kid, McDonalds was somewhere around 30-40 cents.  

       

      I remember there was a place in Lincoln that sold 10 burgers for $1.  I had a friend who would buy $10 worth, fill his freezer and eat out of it all week (or more).  


      The best deal in Lincoln at the time was one day a week the biker bar at 27th and Holdrege would have 25 cent tacos.  They were damn good too.  We would go and get 12 tacos for $3 and we were in heaven.  

       

      @JJ Husker, I had friends who lived behind the Burger King at 48th and Hodrege.  They would dumpster dive at least once a week at the burger king right there.  Then, they were caught by the manager and threatened to call the police on them.

  4. The media seems to be really pushing athletes to attend HBCU’s especially after a 5 Star basketball prospect picks Howard over UCLA. Seems like a one year wonder kind of deal once this blows over but this will be interesting. 

  5. The worst advertisements on network TV. Go.

     

    And I'm talking about known, reputable brands. Not some low quality little known product nobody's even heard of.

      I could see them forcing the firing of KF Jr.  But, I don't see them firing KF.  So far, I think he's handled the situation appropriately and right now he's a legend over there.

  8. If you could have one world-class talent, that you'd never make a dime from, but would just be for you to enjoy, what would it be?

    1. BigRedBuster

      BigRedBuster

      My first thought was golf.  But, I would be making a lot of "dimes" off my friends, so that disqualifies that.

       

      So....I'll go with fine wood working.  I'm trying, and I have made some nice things.  But, there are some people who just have a talent with it that takes it to another level.

  9. Lunch meat from the deli counter...you can only buy one...what are you getting?  

    Turkey

    Chicken

    Roast Beef

      I've made the one I linked (and then realized it's mentioned in the video above) and it's easy.  I use my beer fridge in the garage.  My wife is well used to me doing strange recipes in that fridge.  She stopped complaining when she tastes it.

      @Mavric Have you been to a really good deli? It puts any fast food drive through to shame.

      @JJ Husker love the mention of Braunschweiger.  Grew up on the stuff.  Love it!!!

       

      On the list, gotta go with you on the Roast Beef too.  

      However, unfortunately, when I'm at the counter, I almost always go with turkey.

  14. Prince would have been 62 today.

      Prince was an absolute amazing artist.  He was so much more than some recording artists that are given songs and they just perform.

      @ladyhawke I would love to know, but I doubt if we ever do as fans....unless it's a long time down the road  and he does an interview and it's asked.  Even then, we might not know the real story.

  16. Jason Kirk leaving Vox now, too. The SBNation guys could start their own website and probably be the best CFB news site out there.

      I never knew there was a link between Vox and SBNation.

  17. 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?

    1. BigRedBuster

      BigRedBuster

      Something I always tell the seniors every year when I talk to them about getting a job and working in the real world....get comfortable with picking up the phone and calling someone.  Actually learn how to have a phone conversation.  So many kids now days always just text and then sit and wait for a response.  

       

      So...pick up the phone and talk to someone.

      Why not wait 4-5 days and then call or talk to them in person just to make sure they received the email?

  19. Men's onesie polos are on sale.

    87562599_2958497077568386_48267519359293

    Just kidding, I don't know if they're actually on sale. $17 might be the normal price.

  20. Today is the 40th anniversary of the tornado outbreak that wrecked Grand Island. Barely remember this, just that everyone seemed kinda dazed by the news.

  21. FBS conferences & networks announce that June 1 deadline to announce start times of games in first 3 weeks will be delayed.

      I think this decision should be delayed as long as possible.  And...hopefully, if they decide to announce something soon, it can be adjusted, to a certain extent, in the fall to acknowledge reality at the time either way.

  22. How many masks do you have?

     

    I have three, all made for me by friends/family. One super heavy one with Star Wars art on the front and flannel on the inside, one with some new-age looking art pattern that's mostly orange, and one more bright orange one with ties instead of elastic bands.

      Two.  One disposable one that I keep in my car.  One home made for when I need to wear one for a longer period of time.

  23. Rewatching the 2014 miami game with my girlfriend as part of her introduction to Nebraska football (she's from Alabama).

     

    She's so into it and intimidated by the crowd and I'm almost crying thinking of how much I miss football, miss big primetime moments and love this program.

    1. BigRedBuster

      BigRedBuster

      I've been going to games for a long long time.  I have never seen a Nebraska crowd like they were that night.  Not against OU.  Not against CU.  That was truly incredible.  Honestly, I am glad they aren't like that for everyone.  It was pretty nasty.  But, it was appropriate for Miami.  You could tell Nebraska fans have wanted Miami in our own house for way way too long.

  24. Is Chili & Cinnamon Rolls Nebraska's "signature dish?"

    1. BigRedBuster

      BigRedBuster

      I was a very lucky kid.  We had a cook at our school that was very good.  She made runzas better than Runza and great chili and cinnamon rolls.  In fact, there are people in town that have saved her CR recipe and still make them.  Now, how many people think back to their school lunches and can say they were really good?

      You can get runzas elsewhere.  They might not be called a runza though.  I've seen them in a lot of places and they are called bierocks.  It's actually an eastern German food.

       

      I really like runzas.  But, I'll admit the best ones aren't at Runza.
