    Jags extend Bortles - 3YR, $54M

    We all agreed last offseason that the Jags should have broken the bank for Cousins. We nailed that one.

    Handling Disrespect

    I used to let people get away with disrespecting me. I found that while I personally didn't feel bad about it, this ultra-passive behavior also lowered my esteem in the eyes of others as well. And I think it hurt my chances in getting raises at work and getting a few women I was interested in. If I don't stand up for myself in the face of disrespect, other people shouldn't trust that I will stand up for them either, right? I recently started a new trick. I give people a compliment first before I bring up my valid complaint about their behavior. Here's a recent example with a secretary at work, with the Vice Chairman of the school board present, verbatim: "I consider you a fair and honest person. So I'm sure you understand that I mean no offense when I ask you to please not interrupt me when I'm in the middle of a conversation." It worked. Due to my giving her a stellar reputation to live up to, she had no choice but to immediately and emphatically apologize. I think I earned her respect as well as a feather in my cap from the big boss.
  3. I have 2 short, sweet questions I'd like to ask you, my friends. What's your first course of action when someone clearly disrespects you? Is there any way that you would like to improve your handling of disrespectful people? If so, how?

    Jags @ Bills

    Hot take: They were never as good as they looked last year, like Philly.

    Is Brees on pace to have the best season ever in your rankings?

    Do you ever feel like...

    I'm so sorry to hear about all of this, especially you finding your dead friend. I can't even imagine what that's like. And yes life often does fuck us. You seem like a tough guy, so I don't think you'll be down long.

    Trump Regime thread.

    Everyone wants to be listened to. Nobody wants to listen. Me included. I'm really working hard on changing that. I invite you guys to try it as well. We have been shoved into this divisive way of debating each other. If you don't agree with literally everything I say, our current political climate suggests that I should treat you as my enemy and actively work against every idea and thought that you have (even if I strongly agree with other ideas of yours).This is failure in a nutshell. It obviously doesn't work. I want to try something different. I don't know everything, so I'd like to stop acting as if I do. My new goal is to see how your ideas and mine can work together instead of against one another. "My way or the highway" sounds good on paper or in a song... though it is not a long-term recipe for success or enacting real change. There doesn't have to be a winner or loser of every debate. Both sides of a debate can win. It's a helpful technique to start by saying, "Perhaps I am wrong. As I consider you an honest and fair person, I'd like you to at least consider the merits of my ideas. But first, what do you think?" Obviously anything remotely similar would do the same job. And when they tell you what they think, it's not the best idea to immediately consider how this thought or idea works against yours. That's our default setting... again, doesn't work. See if it's possible in some way that this idea can actually make yours stronger or more effective somehow. Ask for time to truly consider what the person said. If you still disagree in the end, you'll be in a better position to do it respectfully. If you do end up liking their idea, invite them to consider how yours can also make theirs better. This is how winning is done. An open-minded listener can usually disarm even the most aggressive "opponent." Showing someone that their ideas are at least useful in some way reduces the chances that they will relentlessly oppose you. Now I can already tell what some of you might be thinking. This isn't going to work. It's asking too much of people. It's a radical change. You might be right. I'd at least like the opportunity to find out. What do you say?

    Trump Regime thread.

    I think we can all agree that people of all sorts of political views are guilty of spreading so many lies that it gets hard to tell the truth apart from those lies. It's up to each individual to stop saying things that they know to be false. What a world it would be! That's not going to happen, sadly. I'm trying to get better at not getting snagged on the first headline I see and listening to my conscience when I read something. We shouldn't have to do that, but we don't really have a choice, do we? I wish more people would sacrifice, just once on a while, the need to be right in order to pursue the truth. I get it, I get it, nobody wants us to know the truth. The truth doesn't make money. How do we know that? We've never had truthful journalism to say whether or not it is profitable. Why don't we give it a try? Let's stop sacrificing the future by coming up with the most convenient way to cover our asses when we fuck up.

    What was the last movie you watched?

    Like I said, it's hard for me to disagree with most of that. There are some things that I interpreted differently: I believe it was the intent all along to make this movie as close to 100% about Laurie Strode as possible. Part of it goes back to the nostalgia factor, and part of it goes to Jamie Lee Curtis' experience with these movies. And further still, I believe they were trying to right the wrong of killing Laurie off so quickly in Halloween: Resurrection. The Dr. Loomis ripoff was terrible. No disagreements here, though his death scene was cool at least. I also kinda liked the gotcha moment at the end. As strong as Laurie was in the original, she couldn't beat Michael alone. Here she seems stronger than ever abd even takes the role of hunter, but still she needed help to get rid of him for good. Kinda fitting that her "ruined" daughter was the one to help. The granddaughter seems useless at first glance, but we needed lots of youth in the form of her and her friends to stay true to the spirit of the original. The only difference is this time the plot didn't revolve around the youth, but they were necessary nonetheless. Moments that made me go OHH: - The granddaughter looking out the window and seeing Laurie randomly, just as Laurie saw Michael the same way 40 years ago. - The kids walking on the same sidewalk where Michael hid behind the bushes in plain daylight in 1978. Also the trick or treaters wearing the masks from Halloween 3: Season of the Witch and running into Michael. - Michael throwing Laurie out of the window then seeing her shadow matted into the grass where she fell and escaped just as Dr. Loomis had done to him in 1978. - "Do as I say!" - Laurie There were others, but these stood out the most.

    I totally don't blame anyone for feeling that way. And I actually agree with the character development part outside of Laurie. That said, they made this movie with people like me in mind. They gave me the overdose on nostalgia I was looking for. I shrieked out loud with nostalgic excitement a few times. So while I can recognize that it is not a great movie, I still enjoyed it nevertheless.
