You know you have to let the boss win right? If you really want to win though, mix in some ground pork (75% beef, 25% pork) and very fine crushed bacon (not much, dont overdo it.) You're welcome.

I went with a few different kinds of chili powder. Shouldn't have added the ketchup as it added just a little bit of sugar I didn't want. But all in all it was good. Not bad for my first time making chili. Boss was just playing around, but visibly voted for himself and then gave me the opportunity to vote for him, but I'm not that much of a kiss-up.

I love chili, and I make a pretty mean kettle of it a couple times a year. If I wanted to try to win a chili cookoff with it, I'd make the chili and then put the kettle in the fridge for a day or two, then warm it back up for the competition. I have no idea if that technique falls within the rules of chili cookoffery, but the flavors of chili really pop after a little refrigeration time to meld.

I debated giving this its own thread:

Hasbro created a special edition of Monoply for Millenials.

Seems like we could joke about it for days (I’m an older Millennial, BTW). Players collect experiences, not real estate (because they can’t afford it). No jail, players just get sent to their safe space. And at the end of the game, everyone gets a participation trophy.

When and where did adding burger to things become a thing? Example: nothing burger.

"nothing burger" came from a Project Veritas undercover video where the undercover journalist talked to a higher-up anchor of CNN about their coverage of president Trump, and the CNN anchor said that all the Russia-Trump stuff was a "big nothing burger". The Veritas video came out maybe four months ago when the Russia stuff had only recently hit and CNN was covering it pretty much 24/7.

Maybe, I've heard people use burger for much longer than 4 months though. Guys playing call of duty have said I just got a 30 burger. 30 kills. That's been happening for over a year.

I recognize ‘50-burger’ from the context of blowout NFL games and when I searched the term, I found an Urban Dictionary entry from 2014.

https://www.urbandictionary.com/define. ... 0%20Burger

Not that it matters, but that particular video came out almost a year and a half ago.

This is from a story on JSonline today:

"Earlier that day, Wesley had found a bizarre "notice" taped to a front window of the home, where his father had lived until his death a few works earlier, in May 2017. The paper was riddled with spelling and grammar errors and virtually devoid of punctuation."

Ah, the irony.

Copy editing reduces Gannett's profits! (Apologies to any Gannett fans out there, and they're certainly not the only ones skimping on that activity)

Remember: the Brewers never panic like you do.

If millennial jokes weren't stupid I would say if I was going to spend $19.82 on a piece of ****, I'd at least make sure it came from Whole Foods.

Instead of Income Tax is there an Income Tax and student loan space instead? Is the Go Directly to Jail chance card now Go Directly to Bed because you have to work multiple jobs to make ends meet?

Cards' fans wear jorts.

Instead of moving your own piece, each player sits there and demands that everyone else move their piece for them.

Instead of going to jail, they go to the campus crying closet.

I'm serious, that is a thing, google it and prepared to be degusted.

Not sure what its origin was before that, but Kevin O'Leary has been using the term "nothing burger" on Shark Tank for years.

My colleague’s cat is being put down. She was in tears earlier today. I’m not particularly close with this person, but we have a good work place relationship. What’s the etiquette in this situation? Do I send a card?

Everybody is different so I can only speak for myself but I never expected or cared about a card from people. We understand we live longer than they do. We also know we care more about them than pretty much everybody else. If you want to show some sympathy strike up a conversation about pets in general. People who have pets love talking about animals in general so maybe ask where she got her cat, what kind was it, was it a rescue or if she plans on getting another.

Edit: I didn't notice you said being put down not already down. That just sucks and there isn't anything to do about it. Definitely wait until after to send anything. Talking about pets in general is ok if you are in a situation where you feel you should say something. That allows her to steer the conversation to or away from her personal situation as she feels most comfortable with.

There needs to be a King Thames version of the bible.

When my dog passed a lady I have a good relationship but nothing more came and gave me a hug. Made me feel good and it wasn't something I forgot.
