I live on Oahu,,,,long story of why I was in Texas, but if you find yourself in Dallas or Austin, its worth the 1.5 hr drive. I did 7 sessions over a 4 day period. All expert sessions, and incredibly fun. I follow the BSR Instagram, and there seems to be an infinite amount of settings, and the wave is constantly evolving. I understand private sessions can get all kinds of crazy settings.

This is a pretty interesting case. The admins really played fast & loose with the racism accusation & helped to whip the kids into a frenzy. It seems like they think they think that nothing is off the table and are incapable of humility or self-reflection when it comes to whatever their notion of social justice is that day. What's really revealing is that between the compensatory and punitive stages of the trial (after being found guilty) the college president sent out an email blast pretty much refusing to acknowledge the verdict computer foreheadslap bricks and Oberlin paid dearly for it. As the SJWs are fond of reminding everyone, free speech has its consequences...

What's really interesting is that the colleges that double down on the social justice policies (microaggressions, safe spaces, trigger warnings, deplatforming etc) are the places that have by far the most problems with student governance & suffer from bad PR: Berkeley, Oberlin, Mizzou, Yale, Evergreen, etc. A self-destructive monster of their own design.

Summer time allows me a lot of time to read instead of grade papers, last summer Blood Meridian and the Monkey Wrench Gang were two of my favorites.
A student gave me Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter on the last day of school, almost done, wouldn't really recommend it but it was interesting. Got some barnes and noble gift cards from students so I ordered "Native Moments" a story about some surfers in Costa Rica. and Hotel Honolulu. Gonna grab East of Eden from the local library too.

i've mentioned before but my all time favorite author is Peter Matthiesson. At Play in the Fields of the Lord is brilliant, and Far Tortuga is my favorite about the last years of the Turtle fisheries in the Caribbean, its is kind of hard at the start to figure out who is talking but if you go slow and pay attention you catch on to the characters "Speedy" is my favorite. some of my friends tried to read it but couldn't get into it.

Also all you florida boys should read his trilogy about Florida. Killing Mr. Watson I think was the first, great books.

We're releasing the JL thruster fins in our Apex Series construction; made with a solid piece of precision foiled G10 fiberglass for the ultimate in performance and durability.The combination of highly durable material and precision foiling yield a fin that is stronger and has a more ideal flex pattern than your traditional honeycomb or composite fins.

G10 is made by compressing layers of fiberglass and epoxy resin and baking it an autoclave to have the maximum strength of any fiberglass available.

Zion is 6'7", 285......not many men in the nba are that big at 20.
He will dominate most in his position.

Can he shoot free throws in the nba consistently will be the real question.

Look at Giannis Antetokounmpo in that last series, one of the best in the NBA but you can NOT have the ball in his hands at the end of a close game because he couldn't shoot free throws.

LOL, false equivalency much? How many Cessnas are operated daily compared to cars? Plus, you can't compare a car crash to a plane crash. Most car crashes don't effect pedestrians and off road infrastructure. A flying car crash in an a suburban and especially urban environment has a very high probability of landing on humans and/or buildings. Once a large portion of the public is in flying cars, the probability of accidents and equipment failure goes up dramatically.


Seriously. The level of retardation is already horrible. To the point a license purge of at least a couple million in CA alone is necessary. And those same people in the air? It would be like 2,000 instances a day like Denzel in Flight but with far less skills.

As far as equipment failure goes, getting rid of a lot of the computerization (mind you, not instrumentation) would have to happen. Way too buggy and I am at the point of considering every car made after 2000 to be a lemon because of it. So many glitches in every car I've driven and I consider cars made in 80s and 90s to be far more reliable than ones today. Remember when you could play the stereo in accessory mode for more than 15 minutes without the battery dying?

Of course I say the same thing about smartphones. Samsung vs Moto vs Apple? They all suck and are completely unreliable. I've never had one that didn't start crashing multiple times a day within a few months of owning it. And I don't even do anything that special with them.

Our biggest problem is that we seem to value bells and whistles more than actual functionality and reliability.

Went to Kauai (6 nights) and Oahu (4 nights) on my honeymoon. Some Husband & Wife activities that should work for you both, and will still put you in the water / near the surf on Oahu are as follows:

1) Sharks Cove on the North Shore just before Ehukai is a well known snorkel spot.

2) Went to go snorkel and hang out at Hanauma Bay, but it was closed on Tuesday with the gate to the area locked. Supposed to be another great snorkel spot and looks like a cool Beach / Bay: https://hanaumabaystatepark.com/

3) Hike Diamond Head. Don't be like the idiots who come in their cheap rubber sandals with no water. The trail gets steep and rocky and pretty hot up there as the crater blocks the wind. The views from the top are worth it and its good excercise.

4) SUP or go Longboarding off Waikiki (Fours, Threes, Canoes, Queens, etc.) Even if your wife doesnt surf, it should be mellow enough that you can paddle out together and just hang out on the boards / in the water.
