    Is this bait? Looks like bait.

    Needs a better disguise.

    I don't need to bait anyone. Boca doesn't do copters. I think that's weird.

    People died from copters during the Dirty War but it wasn't because of failures of the helicopters but because of moral failures of the officers.

    Sure, you have to live your life. Thanks for the pep talk. :thumbsup: But you are just listing dangerous-sounding, adventure-tourism type stuff without showing any numbers.

    And you're referencing mostly once-in-a-lifetime activities, which keeps the odds in your favor.

    Or this thread, cuz Kobe wasn't the only famous person to die this way. Not even close.

    I was comparing your reaction to this higher death rate than your reactions to the much lower risk of police violence. It’s like running into innumeracy in the wild. “Oooh, see the liberal in his natural habitat. He cannot understand statistics, only anecdotes and vibes.”

    Paul Parkman, co-inventor of the rubella vaccine.

    Often when I look up some famous person from the past, I note the year they died and wonder how they felt about the world. For example, I get a bit of happiness when I see that George Bernard Shaw lived to see VE Day. He died knowing England survived.

    This poor guy had to live to see his life’s work called into question by Aaron Rodgers and Joe Rogan. That had to be heartbreaking.

    a. There was a stream full of salmon between me and the bears.

    Wow, first time I noticed he’s a dead ringer for Lee Torgeson.

    You have to wonder if his film project was partly to blame.

    I think that would be a stretch. I spent 3 years at college eating a much worse diet.

    I thought that this meant there was hope for the world considering Trumps diet. But no, it was the cancer. RIP Morgan.

    When I was in grad school, one year, about six nights a week I'd eat a quarter pounder with cheese, large fries, large diet coke and a pie. Breakfast would be donuts and coffee in the student union. Lunch would be a bag of popcorn from the same student union.

    That was 40 years ago. If I did that now, I'd likely be experiencing a serious health crisis by the end of the year.

    The next year, I moved from my rooming house into an apartment where I could cook. Alas, once summer rolled around (this was Louisiana) cooking rendered by apartment uninhabitable, so back to my McD's meal plan for a few months.

    I still remember my dorm mate from my freshman year who figured out 53 ways to make Ramen noodles, including several that used the coffee maker.

    [In my best Eric Idol voice:] "I would have killed for a coffee maker."

    I made a pretty good tuna melt wrap on an iron.

    People in dorms who want to cook are some of the most creative people.

    Boca doesn’t do copters. The Junta was all River fans.

    A toaster can make a great grilled cheese, or hot ham,.

    Just a rice cooker to make rice and butter with corned beef was my thing

    Cheapo cheapo aluminum percolator to heat up a can of chicken noodle soup. For a holiday meal drop a couple of chicken thighs in to cook in it. Or a one burner hot plate with a foil pie plate will fry you an egg in butter.

    Student living style eating is pretty much the same decade after decade. You stay a little hungry all the time and the same thing over and over always tastes good.
