    1. I prefer "mmoonn"
      Pronounced both as "moon" and as "muh-moon-en".
      Just keep adding initial m's and final n's for however many layers of turtles are stacked up:
      Do mmoonns have their own satellites? "Mmmoonnn" (both /moon/ and /muh-muh-moon-en-en/).

      1. Any moon that would cycle between retrograde and [____]grade (?) is now noomoons.
        To avoid confusion, a New Moon is now just a m●●n.

    1. You could consider doing side-by-side slides with the query outline on the left side (i.e. just the keywords maybe some abbreviations, sort of a SQL psuedo-code) and then putting details on the right side. You’d have to solit it across multiple slides, but it might work if the outline on the left has enough context.

  1. I was expecting more giant hurricane news from the gulf coast, here I see it's already 500 miles up the east coast.

  2. Just when I think it can’t get any better—Wolves cancel practice today! I’m usually not big on comparing office jobs with sports jobs, but just imagine if your boss tells everyone to just stay home because they can’t manage one guy’s outbursts. Amazing. Like, I’m not mad or jealous about it, it’s just so incredibly dysfunctional.

    1. Jon K has stopped carrying Thibs's water, so I'm thinking today might be his last day. (But Glen never fails to surprise me.)

    2. This is such an amazing Wolves week. I’d love it if they just keep canceling them. They’ve looked like such a well-oiled machine in the preseason, who needs more practice?!?

    3. And now we have reports of Pat Riley calling Thibs an MF-er and hanging up after Thibs wanted more in return at the last minute.

      Yeah WOLVES!!!

      1. Not just more in return, but something as stupid to kill a deal with as draft picks.

        Best. Off-season. Ever.

  3. Facebook gets a lot of criticism for things, but I was just able to help Aaron Dilloway* identify some mushrooms.

    *formerly of Wolf Eyes, now recording under his own name, with his releases including my #1 albums of 2012, 2013, and maybe 2017.

    1. Man, I’ve got mushrooms like nobody’s business. We had a sickly hackberry tree take out, and the stump was all brands of rotten inside. That thing has produced a crazy variety of shroom.

  4. Philo bait: I argued a case in front of the Court of Appeals this morning where the underlying facts occurred in Wabasso.

      1. It was an implied consent case. The driver challenged the stop (he was driving around the middle of the night squealing his tires with very loud exhaust). Then, he was read the Advisory. After repeatedly trying to question the officer (and not answering "Will you take a breath test?" the first four times he was asked), he said he would rather take a blood test than the breath test he was offered, and the officer complied. He's now trying to say that violated his right to due process. All of this happened pre-Thompson/Trahan.

        1. I think I heard about this one. You were doing the heavy lifting for Rudy, I take it?

          When did you go back to doing implied consents?

          1. Not sure who Rudy is, this wasn't with the criminal case. They had some turnover in that division, so I've pitched in to help and mostly have been allowed to pick the cases I want (so mainly, I'm visiting new counties for me or handling appeals).

            1. If I'm not mistaken, there was a criminal appeal related to this same matter, and Rudy would have been the county attorney arguing it. I thought maybe they'd do 'em together.

              That's a nice gig. How many counties are you up to now? I added a new one the other day to get up to 15. I thought that was good for about 2 seconds before remembering your travels.
