    Simple observation: That’s a casual salute, something I do all the time. Do I agree with the context? No. But that is NOT a YESSIR superior office salute.
    Agreed. Could've just as easily been a wave or peace sign as a way of saying, "Sup."

    Really?

    Dude is standing at attention and saluting. Looks intense AF about it, too.

    That’s not attention, that’s not crisp. My dad’s former Navy, my older brother is a retired full bird Colonel, and one of my best friends is former Special Forces.

    Ok? I wasn't questioning your military knowledge. My point is that he looks far from relaxed there. That's not a "how's it goin', bud?"

    Scar is establishing his credentials in the matter because he's too diplomatic to say, "I know better than you do." But he does.

    And I at no point argued with that, did I?

    I know.Scar knows more about military than anyone I know and probably anything on this board.

    My statement - AGAIN - is that Gibson doesn't look "relaxed", like he's giving a casual salute to a drinking buddy.

    He looks like he is saluting a superior officer or, get this, the person he still calls his President

    Well Mel Gibson probably figures if he can't get canceled for being a racist piece of shit the Trump support won't really hurt his career, either.

    Mel Gibson is way too rich to give a fuck anyway. On top of his lucrative acting career, he's made 10s of millions off of some very savvy real estate investments.

    He can just wait the latest shitstorm out on his private island in Fiji, where I am sure his grandchildren are hanging out, full on lord of the flies and shit.

    Why are porn sites so obsessed with the British Broadcasting Corporation lately?

    That would explain the Idris Elba casting rumors.

    Pro tip: when you’re sleep deprived due to puppy shenanigans, make sure the game hens you prepped for the grill are well out of reach of the other dogs before chasing the little one around the yard to see what’s in her mouth.

    In totally unrelated news, tonight’s menu features two partially chewed Cornish game hens.

    So I've been invited to have a little "guys night" type thing next weekend. Go to a buddy's house, spend the night drinking and playing board games.

    I told him I think it's a go, but just want to talk to Jen about it first and make sure she's cool with it.

    He seems pretty insulted by this. Saying things like "you don't need permission, do what you want."

    I have always gone to my wife for an OK when something comes up that could potentially change her plans for my days / time off, and I've always thought that was pretty normal.

    She's not controlling at all and always says yes, I just think it's basic respect.

    Am I in the wrong here?

    I never tell my wife no to these things, but its a conversation. I almost never go do guys nights (maybe once or twice a year, golf of something, I'm a home body), but it would absolutely be a conversation. And not a "can I have permission" conversation, like "is there anything on schedule with fam or kids" convo.

    I have friends that respond like your friend tho. And I think they have a shitty primitive relationship.

    I always need to ask because my wife schedules like 37 things and tells me them last minute (last minute to me is within 7 days). Like if I had done that for next weekend without consulting my wife, I would have had to rescind because we are going to my wife's friend's son's first birthday party.

    Olympic highlights/thoughts so far:

    - Russia has been soft banned from the games for systematic and repeated doping offenses. The ROC (Russian Olympic Committee) consists of Russian athletes who have not broken any rules. So basically Russia is there, but not officially. The flag can not be displayed, and even the Russian national anthem has been replaced by Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1 during medal ceremonies.

    - It might be mainly Simone Biles (who by all accounts deserves the title), but the the term "GOAT" has been tossed around way, way too much at these games. It's getting annoying. Obviously some breathless praise will accompany any Olympic games (and should), but let's take it easy with these grand declarations here there and everywhere.

    - The debut of Olympic skateboarding has been... okay? Maybe it's the way it's scored (the best 4 out of 7 attempts), but it seems like half of the time I'm watching people eat shit trying to grind a rail. USA's Nyjah Huston, who everyone expected to win the gold, didn't even complete four out of his seven attempts. It's a new sport, so maybe I'll grow to have a deeper understanding over time, but it became almost comical watching people bail over and over. I will say, however, the Japanese gold medalists were pretty damn impressive (and the woman/girl was just 13 years old).

    - Annemiek van Vleuten, a cyclist from the Netherlands, won silver but thought she won gold because Anna Kiesenhofer from Austria was so far ahead. After looking her up, I realized van Vleuten was the same woman who had that horrible crash in Rio. Watching it in real time back then, I was sure she was dead. Amazing comeback story.

    - Swimming. Ahmed Hafnaoui from Tunisia won the 400 free from Lane 8 (the "slowest" lane), totally unexpected. There's a video flying around of his family watching the swim on a broken TV. Then Ariarne Titmus beating Katie Ledecky for the gold in the 400 free, yet somehow being overshadowed by her coach's gyrations in the stands. One guy forgot to turn in the 100 back and just crashed into the wall. Another guy cheated by pulling on the lane lines. Crazy. Obviously lots of stupid fast swimming going on, but it seems slower than normal. A guy named Carson Foster just went faster at some meet in TX in the 400 IM than the gold medal time the other night.

    GOAT gets said a bit too much, but what Simone Biles has done is certainly that.

    The only other example that I can think of is Shaun White in that those two were so far ahead of any other competitor, that it seemed unfair. Michael Phelps possibly.
