My buddies and I are trying to schedule a trip to Atlanta/Athens in late September to see the Notre Dame/UGA game.  Cheapest ticket on stubhub right now is almost $700!  Are people actually paying this much to sit in the last row?

Not really a "rant" per se but wasn't sure where else to put it - a 21-year old cousin of mine (2nd cousin actually, my cousin's son) was killed in a motorcycle accident in Reisterstown yesterday.  We weren't exceptionally close, but he was a legit good kid, just one of those guys that everyone liked.  If you're of the praying type say a quick one for his family for me, they are obviously devastated.

Sorry to hear that Glenn.

 

Thoughts and prayers.


I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

Indeed it is.  Nobody ever stole shit from me when I drove an '03 civic with 240k+ miles.  Thought I picked a boring enough car with the newer Accord, but guess not.

My teeth were fine and had been for months. Went to the dentist for a cleaning yesterday and now they're sensitive AF.

It happens. I went to the dentist once and ended up having such pain after that I needed two root canals.

Fortunately root canals are generally painless procedures these days.

Yeah I had a RC a few years ago and having some cavities filled were much worse.

F the cell phone companies.

 

I hate the way they do new phones now.  Used to be, you can sign a 2 year contract and get the phone really cheap.

 

Now they say, well you don't have to sign a contract but you have to pay full retail for the phone.

 

Its bullshit.  You should get the option to sign a contract or not.

Agreed. They told me that it changed because customers didn't like signing contracts. BS.

 

If it means the difference between a free upgrade or, like $100 for an upgrade, vs. $700 for a new phone, I'll sign the dumb contract.

 

I have an old AF 5S with a cracked screen that is years past an upgrade because of exactly this. I'm not spending $700 for a phone that will be outdated in 18 months.

Yea, I have been thinking about getting a phone but I have an iPhone 8 and it works fine.  I can do what I need to do with it and to pay $35-40 a month just seems like pissing money away.
