I ate at Whataburger in San Antonino when I was there for a conference. What a disappointment.
 
I think people just love what they grew up with.

Yeah - that one is my dad's favorite because he is from Texas. Didn't seem like anything special to me. All the Californians like In-N-Out, and I don't see what's so great about that either, although it is cheap.

I think whataburger and innout are just really good as compared to McDs or BK.

Double meat with cheese, bacon, and jalapenos. I'm clutching at my chest just thinking about it.

I am not arguing geography.
I know where all the large universities reside.
Do you know why the line was drawn as it is?
 
The line drawn to have Alabama and Auburn in separate groups?

When a thread is immediately turned to President Trump then an
obsession is at work. If it matters to you that Fox News Channel
is obsessed with President Trump, then you are obsessed with FNC;
or are you trying do divert attention from CNN's and SD's
obsession because it reminds you of yours? Does it surprise you
that CNN uses its time the way it does? It surprised me.

Not wise to sound like he knows what he's talking about in this case. (Whether he does or not. My guess is not.)

Remember when all those logger shows were on Discovery? Swamp Loggers, Axe Men, a few others I forget? Yeah I watched them. Lots of cool equipment.
"the_andrew_smith@yahoo.com" <agavinsmith@gmail.com>: May 19 07:15AM -0700

When my dad grew up, logging crews were entire camps, families and all, manning axes and crosscut saws. When I grew up logging crews were 20 men on the ground with chain saws, a few skidded drivers and cable men, a man operating a lumber/trimmer and loader.
 
Now it's 2-4 men in cutters that limb and trim and skidded/loaders. All in air conditioned cabs. No heat, fire ants, or poisonous snakes/plants.
 
His average sale on a piece of equipment is on the $200-350k range. They have service trucks running all over the southeast.
 
The volume of wood they run through chip mills is incredible. Timber is a cool industry these days.

Automation's effect on blue collar jobs strikes again.

In the last month a whole bunch of logging operations have started up in my area. Some of it is prelude to development but I think most of it is just time to harvest the trees.
"the_andrew_smith@yahoo.com" <agavinsmith@gmail.com>: May 19 09:36AM -0700

That automation brings a better blue collar job thought doesn't it. You're much better off working in a factory building heavy equipment than standing on the forest floor waiting to die from a timber accident.
 
I had two uncles that spent their lives in timber. One lost a hand and the other had a scar the length of his head from a truck when a tire exploded.
 
All that said, working in the forest is pretty nice in late fall and early spring

? Why would DUIs be an obstacle to self-driving cars? Do you mean b/c we can't protect ourselves from self-drivers who are DUI?
dotslashderek@gmail.com: May 19 06:45AM -0700

Yeah, that's exactly it. The most unpredictable / difficult thing for these self-drivers are human drivers around them.
 
Throw in a bottle of tequila...
 
But I do think it'll take something (buzzword alert) disruptive like that to really make any headway with the issue. For every habitual drunk driver on the road at 2 am on friday, I'm guessing there are a half dozen that just "had a little too much". Drinking is pretty ingrained in our society.
 
Cheers.

Yeah they should just hang tight.
 
Any of y'all ever have the misfortune of watching a close colleague at work going through a slow burnout?
 
They start getting pretty strange - a zombie look in the eyes, speaking a little more slowly - a lot of pauses where you can tell they're reflecting on something - conversations become equal parts philosophy and cynicism, a lot of focus on how they're being unduly persecuted.
 
Just saying. Go watch that speech he gave at the coast guard academy.
 
Cheers.
