I have no scientific evidence to back this up, but consistently in my life, bad shit disproportionately happens on Wednesday. I do not make doctor’s appointments, nor take my car to the shop on Wednesdays. I am always uncomfortable when a key basketball or footy match is scheduled for said day. That was the best part about Europa League (European footy’s NIT) – all the games were on Thursday, which is my GOOD LUCK day!

Anyway, that is my 1/16th-assed (h/t OSZ) attempt at an intro for your Wednesday open thread. I am off into the bitter cold to grill meatloaf burgers for my kids. It’s 27 out, and I may get to see flurries! Being North Cakalaky, panic is sure to ensue.

Your better sporting contest include: Nebraska at Sparty (6:30 EST, BTN); Texas at West By God Virginia (7:00, ESPNU); K State at BayBay (8:15, ESPN News); Villanova at Seton Hall (9:00, CBSSN); and Florida State at Louisville (9:00, ESPNU).

NBCSN has an Ice Footbaw doubleheader starting at 8, with 4 teams I know nothing about; and ESPN is showing the NBA if you consider that a sport for some ungodly reason. ESPN2 has Down Under el tenis (the sports unit was SO FUCKING EASY in high school Spanish, eh?) starting at 9, if you want to be all cultured and shit.

Flint Iron Stag: I am gonna kill me some Nazis

::kills every Nazi on a base::

FIS: Hey Female that was following me for no reason. Lets make out even though we have no chemistry and you hate everything I am

::finds Hitler::

FIS: I am going to shoot you with this gun, except I am conflicted even though I killed 200 people to get to you. I am sure you are a good man Hitler

Hitler: Nope

FIS: OH NO! A Squirel

::Hitler stays put for no reason::

FIS: I know you Hitler, you killed 6 million people but I know there is good inside which is why I keep letting you live for no reason

::Hitlers last ally flashes a laser pointer and distracts FIS::

::Hitler runs away::

I am really getting sick of shows that allow people that are trying to kill everyone/a city get a monologue about how the good guys shouldn’t kill them then always let them get away. The heroes of every god damn show cause more death than the bad guys. It is a fucking stupid trope, put a bullet in him, write the next story

WCS

Alrighty then. Quick question: what show are you ranting about?

I had a discussion earlier with the great Overseers of DFO in the secret DFO underground lair about starting a new anthology series on the scariest thing that ever happened to you. We want to keep these as true stories but if you want to explore your inner Poe and dabble in some short form horror fiction that should be cool too. I have the first submission from an outside source and it’s heavy as fuck.

As fuck.

I may start with something not quite as heavy but all too damn real none-the-less.

I’m planning on calling the series “This Terrifying Life.”

If you have something you want to share I’m all ears. I am planning on using this to help fill the void of the “non-content” days of the off season.

The scariest thing would be if all the air turned to wood.

Car wrecks, motorcycle wreck, bike wreck, close to a 50 foot rock face drop, weird shit on airplane flights, etc. you made me think about it but I can’t really say fear, some huge adgrenalian rushes but not fear per se. I would think there was something wrong with me, but the things that would come to mind are having your kids in danger or in combat. So maybe I’m just extremely fortunate not to have been in fearful situations, that’s probably it.

P.S. this is a hell of a good idea of yours for posts.

Thanks. I was thinking about a disclaimer that says “Terror is in the eye of the beholder.”
Not everything will be supernatural, some may be a near brush with death, something traumatizing etc.

Your results may vary.

I will probably skip the supernatural stuff, but still a great idea.

Me too, well, it wasn’t “at” me, just an acquaintance fucking around. We were trippin’ ball at the time, so my perception of danger was somewhat limited.

Also post worthy. Something about being under the influence of LSD really heightens the old “Ultra-Violence.”

There is most definitely a related post coming up soon.

entropy

I’ve been shot at, and it sucked ass. I also saw a friend slide right off the edge of the Grand Canyon, saw a bunch of Japanese tourists get struck by lightning there, I was once the person about ten NYC cops pointed their guns at (not the time I was shot at, oddly enough), and spent a memorable evening running from meth cooks in Coal Country, PA.

I’ve had a weird life, I think.

Sharkbait

First thing that comes to mind is snapping my leg in half and the resulting complications afterward. 2 weeks in the hospital, nerve damage and several surgeries later (1 on 9/11 no less)
But Sill takes the medical cake. Holy fuck.

North american researchers at UC Berkeley and California Academy of Sciences have found that the larger Pacific-striped octopus has a unique hunting strategy: Rather than pounce on its prey, it stalks and gently taps it to startle it. Often this drives it into the octopus’s waiting arms….

The larger Pacific striped octopus , is, despite its name, no bigger than a tangerine. Also uses a “slow bounce” to hunt. With its body flattened, and dorsal arms reaching forward, the octopus glides with sporadic bursts of hopping movements before it snatches up its prey of choice.

The octopus is rare, in fact, science has yet no even give it a formal scientific name (belong to Octopus genus). Is poorly understood, however, a recent study shown, they are somewhat social, they mate face-to-face, and the females produce multiple batches of offspring.

I really miss liking the NBA. I just can’t get into it anymore; I rather hear people talking about it than watching it. Baskets seem too cheap.
Oh great dunk. What a steal and finish. He really posterized that guy. Boy those guys can’t score even inOneonta on Halloween. He got hot. Travel–no. Don’t pass it; slamit. Take it to the hole whatablock. That guy can’t box out for shit. Travel–no.
I can’t maintain that enthusiasm twice per quarter.

theeWeeBabySeamus

I lost interest in the NBA a long time ago because no one played defense.
I’m now on the verge of losing interest in college ball because officials are seemingly allowing anything goes defense for some teams.

Basketball used to be my favorite sport. Now….I just don’t know what to make of it.

Don T

Abso. Lutely. Most of my youth I spent on neighborhood courts. The West Coast Nba game on Good Friday was the time to break fast and have a couple of burgers.
Then girls happened, and football (both kinds) became the end-all / be-all. Don’t ragret shit.
