    [–] If somebody is sentenced to house arrest, but they legally live in a pull behind trailer, could they have somebody drive them around and not be breaking their probation? foo_foo_the_snoo 3 points ago in NoStupidQuestions

    For anyone else reading this who finds themselves in a similar predicament with a much longer house arrest period vs a few days or weeks in county, I highly recommend just taking the jail time fwiw. That is of course if you have a supportive family who stands by your decision and you can keep your job on hold for that quick time in county if you have one. On the other hand, say you're an addict or total fuck up criminal with nothing else going on but like drugs and doing crimes then especially take the shorter jail time and get back your shitty ways sooner. Either way, an extended period of house arrest will make you hate your own home and be more likely to get in some other trouble and end up in jail anyway.

    I fucked with chart corrections a lot in the Navy, and this was my favourite joke of the whole series, that a guy could take years of cartography classes and be that uninformed. That very first episode is one of the best with other lines like: Everything they do is so dramatic and flamboyant it makes me want to...set myself on fire.

    [–] When showing off pictures of your kid simply isn't enough. foo_foo_the_snoo 1 points ago in funny

    I have a hard time believing this went down like you describe. We're all familiar with labs and pits. I've owned a few of both. No fucking way is a lab beating a pit in a real fight. No way. Pits are tenacious, bred fighters. Tons of neck muscle, agile, quick, very strong. Retrievers are bred to go pick up dead birds. Sometimes their personalities may go one way or the other, but in a panic fight or flight situation bet on pit bull every time.

    [–] Saw this at a Golden Corral foo_foo_the_snoo 1 points ago in WTF

    I just want to say that Golden Corral can be as disappointing as you might expect, but sometimes actually really good. Buffets have a lot of factors that can go wrong/right. I've had some great meals at Golden Corral.

    [–] When is quantity better than quality? foo_foo_the_snoo 0 points ago in AskReddit

    I don't mean to encourage your alcoholism, but a 6 pack of Miller High Life tall boys is only $4.99 at Rite Aid in the Seattle area, which is not a low cost of living area. By brewing my own coffee at home for pennies, I can afford that much beer and more everyday, for what the average latte drinker spends everyday.

    Wilt was more dominant than Jordan and should be at least #2

    He looks like he's about to trip over his own feet

    I always thought his nickname must have bugged him personally. No military member would want to be called by a rank they came nowhere close to.

    [–] Which teams do you think are the most screwed for the future? foo_foo_the_snoo 1 points ago in nbadiscussion

    For Westbrook, yes.

    He used to make loads of bad decisions with and without the ball. Not so much anymore.

    [–] Which teams do you think are the most screwed for the future? foo_foo_the_snoo 2 points ago in nbadiscussion

    Is OKC literally the worst team in the league, or going to be soon? No. But the thread I was replying to was about them specifically.

    [–] Which teams do you think are the most screwed for the future? foo_foo_the_snoo 4 points ago in nbadiscussion

    There's no flair in this community, but I'm a Thunder fan. WB is declining rapidly. PG was a great signing, but he is not KD. Adams doesn't produce on offense. No shooters. No really promising young talent or high draft picks to rely on. Two superstar contracts in a small market. We're lucky to even have that for now, but as time goes on, aging superstars contracts are harder to get rid of with anything in return.

    This squad has no chance in the West right now, and a worse chance in the future. We just lost 4-1 to a Portland team who went on to get swept by the Finals LOSERS. If we can't even beat the Blazers anymore, forget it man. Roberson coming back isn't gonna matter. There are no trade assets to build from here. It's not a destination city. I'm surprised the window stayed cracked open as long as it did. Presti did a great job wedging his foot in there as long as possible.

    I think we're already seeing a change in his game from a wreckless fast and loose cannonball, to a more controlled, smarter floor general. You rarely see a player's shooting suddenly disappear like this though. Midrange used to be his bread and butter. Same thing happened to Melo's once incredible jumper, it's a bizarre phenomenon.

    The interesting thing about OKC is exactly that - how far they've fallen from reasonably high aspirations.

    [–] Which teams do you think are the most screwed for the future? foo_foo_the_snoo 11 points ago in nbadiscussion

    Man, public opinion of Westbrook has plummeted since his MVP season. He was in nearly everyone's top 10, some folks top 5 not that long ago. Now there are 24 better players? Part of the shift is deserved. His jump shot fell off hard, but I'd say his BBIQ and playmaking are at peak only now.

    [–] I'm OFFENDED. foo_foo_the_snoo 1 points ago in funny

    The best way to put it that a good jazz musician knows the rules well enough to break them in the right way.

    But there's a very thin, sometimes indistinguishable line between landing and staying on a deliberately dissonant note, knowing what that means in the context of theory, VS the H Jon Benjamin experiment where he recorded an album with great jazz players wherein he literally just banged on random keys.

    The difference is discernable to seasoned listeners, to the point where his album sounds hilarious. But on the other side of that coin, even a god like Coltrane's note selection might seem just as silly to those unfamiliar with jazz.

    How are you gonna go to all this trouble and not mention gypsy jazz or especially big band era standards like Sinatra?

    [–] Reddit, what did you think was easy until you tried it yourself? foo_foo_the_snoo 2 points ago in AskReddit

    Yep, for me it's the exact opposite with piano. I have a good knowledge of theory. I know what I'd like to play, but getting my left hand to do much more than the same tired rhythm patterns feels impossible.

    I think it's all about where you started and what feels natural, like learning a second language as a child is so much easier, because the pathways aren't so programmed in one language.

    [–] Reddit, what did you think was easy until you tried it yourself? foo_foo_the_snoo 36 points ago in AskReddit

    There's this very common first plateau that so many guitar "owners" get to, where you can strum all the basic open chords in one or two rhythm schemes. It's about as far as kids usually get on mandolin or ukelele. I would say that getting there is really doable, should only take a few weeks, but that sadly, 4/5 players never get much further than that. Having some theory knowledge from piano though, should help you a lot to get past that barrier though.
