  1. It's a lot of money. He's real young and real good. I guess that's just how it works.

    Gun Control Poll

    I love guns, more specifically handguns, more specifically revolvers. A revolver is old school technology, but for a real self-defense situation, you can't beat a J-Frame Smith and Wesson or a small Ruger in .38 special. People call the .38 special weak, but to this day nobody has volunteered to stand in front of me while I shoot it. Other people can do whatever they want, for the most part. But my little 6-shooter is all I need to feel safe. If I'm too far away to use it, I'm in a good position to do the right thing in a dangerous situation: run.

    The good news thread

    Colombia's doors are open to you, Zack. And anyone else who wants something different. Speaking of Colombia and different, I'm moving to a totally different part of Colombia in 2 weeks. I don't have a new job lined up yet, but I have plenty of savings. It won't be hard to find work anyway.

    2019 Baseball Thread

    The Pirates have a decent group of young guys this year. With a bit of help they could definitely be a playoff team. Need more production at SS and another starting pitcher. Too bad Bob Nutting is a stingy fuck.

    Trump Regime thread.

    Maduro isn't going to play a game he can't win. I wouldn't worry.

    Handling Disrespect

    We also have to be careful of subtler forms of disrespect and aggression on the part of others. Examples: someone trying to get us to do free work/work for less than we deserve, requests that go against our values (if anyone asks, lie for me so I don't get in trouble), etc... I wrote this recently on Facebook and wanted to share it here: It is neither selfish nor immoral to negotiate for what we deserve. We must stop being afraid to "rock the boat" in order to "keep the peace." Why do we think being peaceful 100% of the time benefits us? It doesn't. We ought to grow some teeth and show them to the world once in a while. There is a nasty, sleeping monster inside of us. Let's feed it carefully, but let it play. Maybe then we will respect ourselves and require that others do the same. Being agreeable to the point of harming ourselves isn't morally righteous, nor is it going to make us "good" people . It's cowardice. Let's not use morality to excuse ourselves for being cowards! A good person is capable of anything and has the strength to use their darkness when they pursue what they want and need. We must not let anyone make us feel bad for looking out for ourselves. That doesn't mean be selfish. It means standing our ground in the presence of others who are. Aggressive and selfish people won't battle us if they think they can't win. They will go find the next pushover, because we can be sure that there is always a hopeless, hyper--agreeable person lining up to be abused. We will not let that be us any longer. Understand?
  9. Happy New Year, TGP! May we achieve the success we're working for in 2019.

    Razor's QB Rankings 2018

    Is Brees going to have the best year ever by your metrics? Is the average score of the top 5 going to be the highest ever? All of this is to ask, do we exaggerate when we say we live in the age of the QB or do your numbers prove that to be true?

    Handling Disrespect

    I feel it is important to emphasize that it is not the person you have a problem with. It is their behavior. I thought in that specific scenario that my message would get through easier if I pointed out that she was a good person first. You are right that in other situations, it is better to simply state the issue. If I had only said, "I feel disrespected when people interrupt me. Please allow me to finish my conversation next time" she might have taken it the same way.

    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.
  14. 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.
