    [–] If your team were to go to a haunted house, what would they see that would scare them the most? greatwhitepeaches 15 points ago in CFB

    Gonna go check out this cool new CFB haunted house. Got on my favorite Calvin Johnson jersey. I walk inside. A ghoul jumps out. He throws something at me. He misses. Realize he's wearing a Reggie Ball mask. I was never in any danger.

    [–] What's going on with the Save Chick-fil-A law? greatwhitepeaches 1 points ago in OutOfTheLoop

    As others have pointed out (and I only learned this when they did), the Benz turns Chick-fil-A's space into another restaurant on Sundays, so they're still pulling in revenue any given day of the week for that space.

    [–] What's going on with the Save Chick-fil-A law? greatwhitepeaches 1 points ago in OutOfTheLoop

    Yup, ours is similarly run/owned. As others have pointed out though (and I didn't actually know this), they turn Chick-fil-A's space into a different retailer for those Sunday events, so they can maximize use/revenue of that space. I think it's also probably a regional popularity thing too, what with Chick-fil-A being based in and all over Atlanta.

    [–] What's going on with the Save Chick-fil-A law? greatwhitepeaches 1 points ago in OutOfTheLoop

    It is a reasonable comparison when justifying why there's a Chick-fil-A in the stadium to begin with, which is where this discussion started. United bring in about 500k people each year on non-Sunday home games. Falcons bring in 1-2 non-Sunday games worth of people (so about 150k at most). So United are driving a lot more of Chick-fil-A's patronage throughout the year. Plus the other events the stadium hosts as well.

    [–] What's going on with the Save Chick-fil-A law? greatwhitepeaches 1 points ago in OutOfTheLoop

    I hear ya. My main point wasn't to imply one team was more popular than another. I used season totals just to say Atlanta United brings in more total patrons than the Falcons, which means you've got more total patrons available for Chick-fil-A as well. Even when you subtract out the United games on Sundays, you're still left with 500k people per year that can eat there, compared to maybe 150k people (assuming 2 non-Sunday home games) for the Falcons where people can get CFA. Since this whole discussion came up as to why they have a restaurant in the Benz in the first place.

    [–] What's going on with the Save Chick-fil-A law? greatwhitepeaches 14 points ago in OutOfTheLoop

    Dang, sorry to hear Broncos country is tough. Unfortunately, it is here too. We can only get season tickets straight from the Falcons, no single game tickets. Part of paying off the new stadium, what with the PSLs and all. You can get some resale tickets for not too bad, under $100 if you're okay with the 300 level.

    [–] What's going on with the Save Chick-fil-A law? greatwhitepeaches 18 points ago * (lasted edited a month ago) in OutOfTheLoop

    You're just straight up wrong. They averaged 53k people per game last year, highest in the MLS. And that was across 17 home games, compared to 8 for an NFL team or 6 for a college team.

    Edit: yeah just looked up NCAA numbers too. Bama brought in 711k people during their season last year. 200k LESS than Atlanta United. And United is somehow not popular?

    [–] What's going on with the Save Chick-fil-A law? greatwhitepeaches 220 points ago * (lasted edited a month ago) in OutOfTheLoop

    People seem to forget Mercedes Benz Stadium is also home to the quite popular MLS club Atlanta United, which plays on mostly non-Sundays throughout the year

    Edit: looked it up for kicks. Atlanta United brought in 900k people throughout their season last year. Falcons brought in about 580k throughout theirs. Not saying one is more popular than the other, just that United brings in way more potential Chick-fil-A patrons across the year.

    [–] Can we do something about Trae Young Snapchatting and driving all the damn time? greatwhitepeaches 11 points ago in nba

    To add on, it's definitely illegal in Georgia (if that's where he's doing it). The state enacted a new hands-free law last summer. Can't hold your cell and drive, no matter what (i.e. no phone calls either).

    [–] B-2 size vs C-17 and C-5 greatwhitepeaches 14 points ago in aviation

    Well the C-17 obviously helps pick up some slack, but there will also most likely be another competition initiated by the government sometime in the next decade or so to develop a new strategic airlifter. Lockheed is already doing at least some research.

    [–] B-2 size vs C-17 and C-5 greatwhitepeaches 11 points ago in aviation

    Yup. Been told USAF wants to make em last til around 2040.

    [–] TIL that the reason tigers are orange is because their prey see them as green. Deer, which are the main prey of tigers, are only capable of seeing blue and green light, which effectively renders them color-blind to red. Therefore, to deer, the tigers are seen as green. greatwhitepeaches 444 points ago in todayilearned

    Just to add some more fun facts, turkeys see incredibly well. They can see full color and can even see part of the UV spectrum, so I have to even be careful what detergent I use to wash clothing I would wear turkey hunting because some have chemical brightening agents that might give off a blue UV light that I wouldn't see but the turkey would! Thought that was neat when I learned that.

    [–] 7 ft snake slithered into my yard & was heading toward my dog. greatwhitepeaches 3 points ago in Hunting

    It can, but these snakes would usually rather musk you than bite. Smells not so great lol. They'd also rather run, than fight. Most people usually get snake bit because they tried to move a snake or kill it, not because the snake wanted to attack. They usually are just acting in self-defense.

    And I get initially seeing a snake and being afraid, especially since most people see them pretty infrequently, but we have the ability to think critically and not act on emotion as well. It might be scary at first, but if you look and see that it doesn't look like one of the few venomous species in your area, you know it's not going to hurt you. Even most venomous snakes would rather avoid you because they can't eat you and you're way bigger than them. And since this is r/hunting, I would assume most of us spend a good bit of time in the woods/outdoors, so it's usually a good idea to learn what those venomous species look like depending on where you live. Most are pretty recognizable, with the cottonmouth being the one (at least in the SE) that's a bit tougher to pick out.

    I'm not an avid fisherman myself, but it's surprising to hear that many catch and release folks would be okay killing a lot of fish just for the sake of having fun.

    [–] 7 ft snake slithered into my yard & was heading toward my dog. greatwhitepeaches 2 points ago in Hunting

    If I think I can catch em nope. But that's also not equivalent because most times when people kill spiders it's because they're inside where they're not supposed to be, and usually when people kill snakes they're already outside (like in this case) which is where they're supposed to be.

    Plus, there are no endangered spider species in the US. There are several state and federally protected snake species though, and if you kill any and all snakes you see there's a chance you're killing one that's threatened and that it's illegal to kill.

    [–] 7 ft snake slithered into my yard & was heading toward my dog. greatwhitepeaches 15 points ago in Hunting

    Not getting worked up, just trying to spread the word that snakes shouldn't be killed simply for existing. Especially helpful ones like these.

    Hope you have a good rest of your weekend too

    [–] 7 ft snake slithered into my yard & was heading toward my dog. greatwhitepeaches 7 points ago in Hunting

    That would be like me shooting the neighbor's sheep dog because I was afraid it was a coyote. Copperheads are one of the most distinctive venomous snake species, if not the most distinctive in the US. If he had killed a watersnake because he was afraid it was a cottonmouth, then your argument would make more sense because those are much more similar.

    [–] 7 ft snake slithered into my yard & was heading toward my dog. greatwhitepeaches 15 points ago in Hunting

    Just to add on, this is r/hunting and to me as hunters we're supposed to be more knowledgeable and better stewards of our environmental resources than the average Joe. And, this is debatable if it's even really hunting, and on top of that it's not only a harmless animal, but a really beneficial one to have around. The whole attitude of "the only good snake is a dead one" is ignorant and wrong.

    [–] 7 ft snake slithered into my yard & was heading toward my dog. greatwhitepeaches 11 points ago in Hunting

    It took me 30 seconds to Google and find out there are only 4 venomous snake species in all of Kentucky. Im from GA and there's only 4 in my part of the state. It doesn't take too long to learn what they look like so you don't have to kill every single snake that happens to wander into your yard, especially the ones that don't pose a threat to you or a dog. I love having rat and king snakes around!
