Fins:

Would anyone have guessed Mike Wallace to grade out by anyone as 103 out of 108 WRs in the NFL?  What?

Oh lovely...because I bought a ticket to park at the Jets/Bills game I just got an email from the NFL trying to sell me tickets to the game this weekend...


I want percentages of the money earned when people sell my information to another company. I feel like it's only fair that I get paid for the inconvenience of deleting this spam.

@Nikvoodoo I believe Firefox just released a new plugin that identifies what site information is saved on your computer and what they take and retain for their own purposes, be it selling the information or keeping your data saved for login.

@nossorc @Nikvoodoo That's fine. The only one my university had was the one they gave me and then deactivated 6 months after I graduated.

Surfing is great. I can't really do it anymore, and I'd never touch anything half that size, but it's still great.

estimated to be 100-feet high. If confirmed, it would break the world record of 78 feet set in 2011 by Hawaiian Garrett McNamara.

@cknuckles60191 @CJ gets two many carries @nossorc What week 1 taught me is that Brady with all of his "weapons" healthy (sans Gronk, of course) and a full strength defense they're still only 1 point better than the Bills. Let's see how it goes when you can't stop the run and the Bills have their two best DBs back on the field.

@CJ gets two many carries @iycedout @cgc5783 @the hooded genius I used to dive a lot - and I have dove w black tip reef sharks - which are known to be aggressive and territorial but that being said - yes its terrifying - but when u see them int he water its not as scary its kind of calm

the terrifying part is when u don't see them in the water and when you are approaching a reefs edge - swam w them in Hawaii, swam w lemon sharks (lemon I think) in aruba

haven't seen a great white and damn happy about it

@CJ gets two many carries @cgc5783 @the hooded genius I have bull sharks in the navesink river by me - go there and catch blues and stripers - occasionally you'll see a shark fin but very rare - scary knowing they are brakish

also the original "jaws" is from Manasquan nj - few miles away from me - also pretty terrifying

@cgc5783 @the hooded genius Man, the East cost is lousy with sharks. I've watched everything on Netflix about sharks, so I'm basically an expert. There's tiger sharks, dusky sharks, great whites, sandbars, sharpnoses, just to name a few.

(I'm kidding about the expert thing, in case that's not clear, but I have learned more than enough about sharks to convince me that I never, ever want to go in the ocean)

@the hooded genius Nice, I retired my skateboard quite a few years back due to injuries.  But surf sessions have been clean so far for me as well.

Kayaking is where I almost kill myself, skiing is where I just get hurt a lot [or used to], but surfing I was very mellow about.

@CJ gets two many carries Yeah I don't know about those guys that surf off Cali and Australia, but sharks aren't an issue here in North Carolina.  Worst of our problems is a little jellyfish sting here/there.

Shark infested waters would be scary. I learned how to surf in New Hampshire so the only danger we had was the cold.

@the hooded genius To each their own, of course, and I'm as much of an adrenaline junkie as anyone else, but I cannot fathom what would possess one to sit in shark infested waters for a few moments of horizontal sledding with a moderate chance of drowning.

Same goes for motorcycles, while we're at it.

@the hooded genius that's impressive sidenote...
