Somebody explained it to me earlier but apparently I didn't understand. Because it seems stupid and even dangerous.

I think Pokémon is the only cultural export of Japan outside of Godzilla movies and violent animated robot porn. We totally fucked Japan's collective psyche up for good when we nuked their asses and this is the kind of stuff that stems from that. All I know about Pokémon go is someone somehow used it to guide people to a dead body which is demented and kind of funny.

...I'm kind of hoping that whatever is going on with Kanye West culminates with him taking himself off of the planet along with as many Kardashians as humanly possible.

Have to be honest....Disney vacations are both overrated and not relaxing.

Definitely not relaxing but if you limit it to 3 days or so it's a lot of fun. Also depends on kids' ages.

(Disneyland/California Adventure, anyway)

I had a blast at Disney with my granddaughters last year...ages 5 and 8 at the time. You just gotta know that you are on their schedule and know what they each like to do. We knew we had done things right during our last night there. We made our way to the front of the Magic Kingdom so we could watch the regular Fireworks show (the first and last time we saw it on the trip.). About half way through the show, my 5 year old g-daughter sits down in the middle of Main Street as if if to say "I'm done." We knew we could go home and not hear anybody crying about leaving.

We are Disney veterans. We know where to go and what to do. I go because my family loves it. But I am just not a fan. This is our 6th Disney trip in the last 13 years.

I just checked my fitness app and from Saturday to today, we have walked a total of 41 miles. That is not relaxing to me. I'd just rather be at the beach walking 100 steps a day. Hahaha

But again, I do it for them

Amen!

My brother and his family go to Disney World at least 5-6 times a year. I don't get it. His wife will go at least 8-9 times a year. Sometimes by herself, sometimes with a child or two. She will stay for two weeks when she goes by herself.
Ridiculous!

Never understood the adult who wants to go to Disney. Like I can understand wanting to take your kids, but the lady described above is nothing short of a psychopath. I had friends that the girl wanted to take their honeymoon there. I would have called off the wedding just for her suggesting this.

My wife and I have talked about going at Christmas time by ourselves . The main objective being to see the hotels and how they are decorated for the holidays- she loves Christmas and all the lights and decorations that come with it. Also, see what some of the better restaurants at the resort have to offer. That being said... we would never go without the rest of the family just for the sake of going to DW.

If you're looking for gorgeously decorated hotels for the holidays and the best restaurants in the world.......go to Vegas during Christmas my friend.

I'm not kidding.....at all......and it's cheap as shit during the holidays. I realize Vegas is the polar opposite or Disney, but if you're not going with kids, then Vegas is a way better option IMO.

I know it's shocking to some to hear a Vegas recommendation from me, but all kidding aside, it's gorgeous that time of year. Given, I think it's gorgeous all year, but for Christmas/Holiday decorations, they really go over the top.

Buch,

Thanks for the recommendation...We will definitely keep that in mind. We went to NYC a few years back during the holidays and it was awesome... stayed across the street from Rockefeller Center.

NYC at the holidays is amazing. We didn't do it this year because of the house but I think we're going to make that a yearly thing.

We took our girls to Disney World over the weekend. The best part was that I missed the Kansas game. :D

I agree with Eric that it is exhausting. We only did two days at the park + 2 days for travel. The first day I was in awe and saying to myself, "you didn't book enough time." The second day I was saying "2 days is perfect with kids this young." On the plane home with a 1 year old and 3 year old running on fumes I said, "I"m never coming back here again." And that was with us taking a break in the middle of each day to go back to the hotel for naps.

We had a great time and the park is remarkable. It really is like you are walking into a different world. Everything is to perfection.

But as Eric stated - give me the beach and a beer.

NYC is fantastic durin the holidays. I've spent Thanksgiving there and around New Years Eve. The downside is how fucking cold it is. On the whole, I love the city. 2nd in the world for me behind ATX.

Flying out for Vegas Friday AM haven't been in a few years pretty fired up.

...I could not even name a Linkin Park song.

I didn't realize they were as popular as they apparently were, given the outpouring of love for the guy that committed suicide.

Not making light, in any way, but really had no idea. I always thought they were another Limp Bizkit kind of band.

That and the fact that they haven't been relevant in at least 10 years.

That guy from Nirvana killed himself 2 1/2 years after their album came out and the dude got posthumously famous af.

I discovered when Googling whoever suicided this time, that 4 of their albums just jumped straight into the Billboard Top 200.

Not a bad play really, if you're thinking long term.

Nirvana did not get poshtumously famous after Cobain killed himself. Nevermind started their fame in 1991 (as well as ushering in the grunge era) and In Utero was released eight months before Cobain killed himself. It sold 180K copies its first week and was immediately a #1 Billboard hit. The only Nirvana album of note after his death was MTV Unplugged. Jesus, you top Jeremy in saying ridiculous things just to get a rise out of people.
