    Woo-hoo! We have a Show Thread! Did those terrorist hackers from a few years ago squash the ST yesterday?



    • runningunnin.454
      10:14 am June 18, 2020 Permalink

      There was a ST; but, it wasn’t on the main page. You can google ksr show thread 6/17.

      Weird. How was I supposed to find it? Where did you click?

      It was in the row at the very top.



    • runningunnin.454
      10:32 am June 18, 2020 Permalink

      It was up at the top where they list the most recent articles. Or…you can find any st if you google, “ksr show thread…and the month and day. That was odd.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:35 am June 18, 2020 Permalink

      It was at the top for awhile for me, but later I had to search “KSR show thread” to get to it.

      I never saw it at the top either. I tuned in late again.



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      10:42 am June 18, 2020 Permalink

      And yeah, I’ve Googled a few times to find an old ST I missed, or wanted to see particular comments and replies.

      But I bet Shannon can do it. He was right with his big talk about free throws. And he’s stubborn.

      They all should have to do it; but, I guess not.

      The rest already know they can’t.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:42 am June 18, 2020 Permalink

      I believe I could do that. If it took 20 hours, that’s an average of 2.5 mph. Going 3.5 mph, which is about my normal walking speed, that gets it down to about 16 hours. Of course there would have to be some breaks built in, but still gets it within the 20 hours. Then I would need to take the next week off work because I couldn’t walk anymore. lol

    The Belk Bowl announced their name change today, to the Duke’s Mayo Bowl (no lie).

    I’m so glad the SEC has that policy in place that prevents you from playing in the same game often, because that is an epic downgrade!



    • Realme
      10:19 am June 18, 2020 Permalink

      Yikes. Think of the swag bags the players will get. Gallons of mayo?



    • JTHinton
      10:28 am June 18, 2020 Permalink

      Realme, I remember last year after the Sun Bowl (sponsored by Tony the Tiger, the fictional character for Frosted Flakes cereal) the winning coach was doused with cereal after the game.

      So I’m holding out hope we get to see Mack Brown or Will Muschamp with a Mayo-bath!



    • runningunnin.454
      10:21 am June 18, 2020 Permalink

      Never heard of Duke Mayo; wait, is that the little school in Durham?



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      10:21 am June 18, 2020 Permalink

      Well, one bowl used to be the Weed Whacker Bowl (actually the Poulan Weedeater Bowl I think). It’s the one in Shreveport I believe.

      Anyway, the corny jokes will write themselves when the announcers yell “He slapped some Duke’s Mayo on him with that hit!” or some such.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:34 am June 18, 2020 Permalink

      Yuk, I hate mayo.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:47 am June 18, 2020 Permalink

      Don’t underestimate how freaking great Duke’s mayo is. It’s way higher on the condiments ranking than Belk is on the department store ranking. 🙂 Even if you don’t necessarily like mayonnaise, try this: anything you would put butter on before cooking, like grilled cheese, use mayo instead. It’s also good to spread on a thin layer of it on chicken before you put it on the grill to prevent sticking, and it helps with browning and grill marks, if you’re into that.



    • Realme
      10:52 am June 18, 2020 Permalink

      I tried the substitute mayo for butter on grilled cheese once, not sure why people swear by that, butter tastes better.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:59 am June 18, 2020 Permalink

      Probably just needs some salt, since it will be more like unsalted butter. But then that’s another step you have to do, and not worth it to most people I guess.



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      11:00 am June 18, 2020 Permalink

      I like mayo on lunch meat sammiches, but not on burgers. Mustard & ketchup only as far as liquid condiments.

      I might have to try the grill trick. My wife is doing keto so she bought some Duke’s. She has always sworn by Hellman’s, but it has a smidgeon of sugar whereas Duke’s doesn’t apparently.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:01 am June 18, 2020 Permalink

      Clutch, I have started brushing a little olive oil over the chicken when I grille it. Keeps it from sticking, tenderizes it a bit, and helps the seasonings stick to it.



    • ClutchCargo
      11:05 am June 18, 2020 Permalink

      Yeah, the oil on the chicken works (mayo is just oil, eggs and an acid). It’s funny, but oil on the meat works better than oil on the grill grate for preventing sticking.

    Sometimes I think about how Jdub and BP still don’t miss us enough to come back. They are missing so much bird, car, and music talk. 🙂

      Speaking of music, I was listening to Enya before tuning in. Very soothing.



    • runningunnin.454
      10:40 am June 18, 2020 Permalink

      That’s true, Realme; especially with everything shutdown for two months, and nothing to do…maybe they were “essential”.
      CG, thumbs up for Enya…especially the Loxian tunes,

      Trivia, her real name is very Gaelic:

      “Enya, the Anglicized stage name of Eithne Ní Bhraonáin, was an anomaly from the start. Born into a large, Gaelic-speaking family in rural Ireland…”. That was from this article:
      https://www.theringer.com/music/2018/10/19/17996942/enya-orinoco-flow-sail-away-30-years.

      It’s very fascinating that many still grow up speaking Gaelic as their first language in what is typically an English first country. The lead singer/fiddler of Altan (an Irish band), Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh, grew up speaking Gaelic as her first language also. I’ve seen them in concert twice and they are fantastic. I got a pic with Mairéad. Those bands always hang around for autographs and pics with the fans.

      Ha, RG. You taught me some trivia I didn’t know. Her lyricist created a fictional language for those songs! Why didn’t they just use Klingon? Haha. Very cool though. I also didn’t know she did songs in the fake Elvish language for Lord of the Rings. I knew she was on the soundtrack (I have it actually).

    How can you be born and raised in Ky and never go to Mammoth Cave? Is that normal and I just don’t think so because I grew up close by?



    • ClutchCargo
      10:51 am June 18, 2020 Permalink

      It seems strange to me. But I never went to Churchill Downs until I was in my 30’s. And I’ve never been to a race at Keeneland. Clearly horse racing isn’t really my thing.

      Last time we went was when my kids were about 12 and 10. My older one started getting nervous because she started thinking about what would happen if an earthquake occurred while we were down there.

      We left Lexington for GA when I was 13, and I’ve never been. I’m sure I would have gone, and I would still like to. Me and my family have been to DeSoto Caverns here in Bama. It’s not as big but still looks massive when you’re in there.

      People often take for granted what they live close to. On one of the mission trips to Scotland, and one point we were touring some sites in Glasgow where we were for a week. One of the Scottish members was with us because he had taken a liking to one of the girls with us (all college age). The director of our campaign was driving the church bus and he asked the Scottish dude “Chunky, how do you get to the Glasgow Cathedral from here?” Chunky, in hit thick accent: “Beats me! I never been!”

      He went by Chunky because he worked at Chunky Chicken and he pushed weights.

    I-65 approximates the route of 31-W through Kentucky. So Edmonson County missed out way before the interstate.

    Last night we watched the first Tarzan film with Johnny Weismuller and Maureen O’Sullivan. He was a five time gold medalist, and she was beautiful…she was also Mia Farrow’s mother.
    My wife said “wow, that’s kind of racy for 1932”. Yep, the motion picture people instituted the censorship code specifically due to the Tarzan movies.
    Weismuller came up with the Tarzan “yell” that was used in every Tarzan movie afterwards. Per his wishes, the recording of the Tarzan yell was played three times as he was enterred.

    • runningunnin.454
      1:30 pm June 18, 2020 Permalink

      Ha ha Bobby; the 2nd Weismuller/O’Sullivan flick is more well known, for a variety of reasons. Check out Tarzan and his Mate from 1934. One scene was censored, and there was another the censors missed…you can find those scenes online.
