    Yeah, we usually go for 1001 Dreams weekend, past 4 times we've had mid 90's temps in the middle of October, decided to go a little later this year and still had temps near 80. This is the first weekend that we've seen crowds like this though. I'm thinking that they'll be announcing a new record attendance for this weekend.

    I did hear several vendors telling people to come to Sherwood (near Austin on 290) in the Spring, that they would have some things there that weren't allowed at TRF. First I've heard that from so many different people.

    I can get like Greg from "Night in the Woods", minus the bisexual college-leaving manic depressive cable-walking catgirl best-friend with questionable bass talents depending on the player. My point is, I SUCK at rhythm games, just out loud.

    Something for @bhamv3. This popped into my head as a possible practical test of foreign language comprehension skills. The student or potential job candidate is given a pencil and a baseball scorebook. A radio broadcast of a game in the target language is played on a speaker in the exam room. The subject is expected to fill out the lineups and keep score of the game from the broadcast play-by-play.

    Of course, this assumes the subject knows how to score a baseball game in the first place.

    And speaking as a radio guy (who used to be in charge of a sports radio station) LISTENING to a sport with no video is at least 10x worse than watching the same given sport.

    I feel like I'd blame it more on the overall prudishness of American society. It's not as bad as Japan, but people get hung up over a lot of things.

    But lawsuit culture also affects how often anyone gets CPR, because people are afraid of messing up, or breaking ribs (which is to be expected).

    We have spam here on occasion. We all like it sliced and pan-fried with spicy brown mustard.

    I never post pictures of it though
