    I appreciate that these animals evolved, but holy fuck for the life of me I cannot see how.

    [–] Where is the most normal place you have encountered a celebrity? OakTownRinger 5 points ago in AskReddit

    I had a good five year spell of doing this. One time I was backstage at a concert, because my friend knew the singer of the opening band. Anyway they had free spaghetti and drinks so I am eating and drinking and this lady is like "nice shirt" So I'm like "haha thanks," because the shirt was a burning city with an upside down US flag from a band called THE PIST. She was like "very punk" and I'm like "uh, they're more hardcore I think they're from Connecticut," and we chatted for like 15 minutes till she had to go get ready. Then my friend was like "Dude I think Kim Deal likes you," and I got really excited because I thought it was just some friend of his so I'm like "who is that?" and he's like "the woman you were talking with" and I'm like "oh shit, does she live here in SF?" and he's like "No." And I'm like "oh ok, bummer."

    Anyway it turns out she was the lead singer of the headlining band, The Breeders. And she was in the Pixies too. I had no idea because back then I didn't listen to anything on a major label so why would I know who she was. However, 20 years later or whatever, I'd like to say thank you for the spaghetti and beer and conversation, Kim Deal!!

    [–] What's way more addictive than people think? OakTownRinger 2 points ago in AskReddit

    Barf. The second someone makes some dumb joke about "had a glass or wine last night... that turned into a bottle! haha" I'm like "white wine alcoholic."

    [–] Married Redditors, what was the most obnoxious request made by one of your wedding guests? OakTownRinger 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Succulents are rad though. I would have totally lied about my birthday or whatever to ensure I got to take one home.

    [–] Married Redditors, what was the most obnoxious request made by one of your wedding guests? OakTownRinger 5 points ago in AskReddit

    "Is there anything else to eat than this Little Caesars?"

    For the record, we also had a Sundae bar and a really nice homemade cake my friend made.

    [–] Roast my MR2, I can handle it. OakTownRinger 3 points ago in RoastMyCar

    Based on the car, you probably can't handle it.

    [–] Toast my project toy OakTownRinger 1 points ago in RoastMyCar

    Your neighbors must love you.

    Of the three, living in the kayak is probably safest. And fastest.

    [–] [Baseball America] Expansion Could Trigger Realignment, Longer Postseason OakTownRinger 9 points ago in baseball

    I'm trying to imagine the drama of the stretch in that one game division...

    "Folks all the Mariners have to do is finish this game and their post-season draught is finally over. Win or lose, and every baseball games ends in a win or a loss, the M's are post-season bound..."

    "Here's the windup and... what the hell is the Moose doing? Mariner Moose is... setting a fire... setting a fire in the stands... My lord, the game is going to be called as a no decision due to fire!"

    [–] A's gather memorabilia for Loren, a 9-year-old fan that lost everything in the tragic Northern California fires. OakTownRinger 11 points ago in baseball

    I love that the A's have won 6 world series in his backyard.

    I suspect he hit a full-count, two-out, grand slam, walk off in at least four of those Game 7s...

    [–] Who is your least favorite player in the MLB? OakTownRinger 1 points ago in baseball

    Angel Hernandez. I can't stand a showboat.

    Oh, he's not a player? People aren't paying to see him? Maybe someone should tell him.

    [–] Fan who caught Justin Turner’s game-winning home run has been there before OakTownRinger 3 points ago in baseball

    I definitely dream of getting a game ball, like anyone else, but since me and my son both have A's game balls, we basically pick a kid before the game who we'd instantly hand it to.

    [–] Fan who caught Justin Turner’s game-winning home run has been there before OakTownRinger 1 points ago in baseball

    Some of these ball hawks I can't stand, but this guy seems pretty legit about giving back meaningful balls in return for reasonable trades. He had a good quote someplace else saying "they said they'd hook me up, I assume they will," He's been to every Dodger's home game this year so a true fan, not just a ball hawk.

    [–] For some reason, I google searched Eric Byrnes today. Found this image. Have 0 recollection of it. Anyone know when this was or know where to find footage of it ? OakTownRinger 1 points ago in OaklandAthletics

    I was at a game (not this one) where they pulled a dude off the field and were dragging him on the concourse when a guy totally cheap shotted him in the face and was like "don't disrespect the field." On the one hand, yeah, don't disrespect the field, on the other hand, cheap shot of a guy who's in handcuffs?

    [–] There is only one side. #NoMoreNazis #Wolf2 OakTownRinger 3 points ago in xboxone

    The only people I'm calling nazis are the dudes carrying torches and throwing around seig heils. And the people who defend them. If you're reading more into it than what I said, that's on you.

    However, I totally disagree with the "if you call them nazis, you'll make them nazis" line of reasoning. If me calling someone a nazi makes them turn into a nazi, they were nazis all along. No one becomes a nazi because they were accused of being a nazi.

    [–] There is only one side. #NoMoreNazis #Wolf2 OakTownRinger 3 points ago in xboxone

    It's idiotic to call people nazis just for being conservative or Republican, and I'm sorry if you thought that's what I was doing.

    [–] There is only one side. #NoMoreNazis #Wolf2 OakTownRinger 2 points ago in xboxone

    I think we're coming to heated agreement over here. I disagree about the ads portraying trump fans, though.

    [–] There is only one side. #NoMoreNazis #Wolf2 OakTownRinger 27 points ago in xboxone

    I did notice a lot of brigaders saying "they're saying ben shapiro is a nazi!" but I didn't notice anyone actually calling him a nazi.

    The only people I'm calling nazis are the ones carrying torches and throwing nazi salutes. Going back to my original point, if me calling out people who are acting like nazis as nazis is triggering you, well, to use the words of the alt right, "I'm sorry snowflake."
