Same! Just done with ESPN slurping Brady.

I'm not much of a football fan so it's a lot easier to just recognize greatness without the bitterness, and he certainly deserves some slurping.

On another note, Matt Patricia is going to be the next in the long line of failed Belicheck disciples. The dude's defense is so overrated.

TBH I'd still take him over Jeff Schwartz.

There's a reason this was a Netflix release.

The end of UVA UL was mind blowing.

And Altered Carbon is awesome.

Poe is fantastic.

I'm a huge sucker for anything cyberpunk.

Lizzie kicking ass in the finale was awesome. Poe was really cool too, it was John Wick with more nudity, in sci fi version.

Anything Stephenson, TBH.

I don't know how there hasn't been a Snow Crash film. Or a Neuromancer film. The closest we got to a Neuromancer film is Johnny Mnemonic. Apparently there's a Neuromancer script out there (developed in tandem with Gibson), but it's been stuck in development hell for years.

My damn town just got wrecked by tornadoes. I’m so lucky to be alive. No power but everything else is fine. 3 tornadoes passed through my small little town and no casualties reported but the damage is incredible. I cannot believe my eyes.

I definitely have a new appreciation for tornado safety & preparedness as well as for our first responders.

Northeast Alabama. I’ve been living here close to 20 years and I’ve never seen this level of destruction. I’m still kind of in shock from going through the tornadoes last night. I got caught in the middle of 3 of them on the way back from work. Stupid me was on the road because my parents said the town was fine.

Scary stuff. My work has a center in Orlando Florida and we have a broadcast that they were all seeking shelter. It makes me want to put in a storm shelter at our house.

Thanks, guys. I really appreciate the responses from everyone. The silver lining is that it is really bringing the community together and I feel like that is much needed. 0 reporter storm-related fatalities out of the coroners office so that’s a huge win even though they have yet to do a secondary sweep of the area. A handful of people are still trapped from what I know, but I don’t know to what extent “trapped” means.

This is honestly the first time I can truly say that I feel lucky to be alive.

If Villanova keeps progressing through the bracket, that will be the only thing I chose correctly.

If this isn't the NCAA tournament that makes people completely give up hope in regards to making a bracket, I don't know what will.
