    Watching Black Friday videos…
    People enjoy the doorbusters so they can act like crazy a$$holes.

    It should have been Rogers Hornsby 1924.

  3. Mike Hunt Sailer says:

    I just noticed that in your short bio Over There you refer to yourself as a “former professional gearhead”

      I’m a SAHD for the foreseeable future. If/when I re-enter the workforce, it could be doing something else.

      • Mike Hunt Sailer says:

        Yes, but when were you ever a “gearhead”?

        • trumwill says:

          When I professionally tested computer and electronics hardware and software?

        • Mike Hunt Sailer says:

          TBH, this is the first time I have used that term to describe that job. I think it is misleading at best, but then again maybe that is the point.

        • aaron david says:

          Gerarhead is someone who works with/on cars, generally.

        • Mike Hunt Sailer says:


          Yeah, what aaron david said. Pretty much anyone who is into fixing motor vehicles, such as Jay Leno and Adam Carolla. More generally, someone who is into mechanical things. I have never heard the term for electronics enthusiasts, especially since computers don’t run by gears.

          Anyway, Rutgers took a 21-point lead with 2:43 remaining in the 2nd quarter at home in its “rivalry” game against Maryland, and couldn’t hold on.

        • trumwill says:

          Odd. My wife and I have gotten stuff from places called Gearhead and neither have to do with cars. My computer keyboard even has a “Gearhead” brand name on it. OTOH, a perusal of the net does seem a bit more car-focused than I would have guessed. So… I don’t think it’s especially misleading so much as a vocabulary disconnect. But if it’s prone to cause confusion, I’ll figure out something to change it to.

        • Mike Hunt Sailer says:

          FWIW Wikipedia defines it as “an automobile enthusiast, usually with mechanical abilities”

          However, as Billy Joel sang, “don’t go changing, to try and please me and aaron david”.
