I find all of the husky dog joke panels funny. This one, in particular, though clearly founded in satire, uses a common and light hearted internet meme and juxtaposes it  against the brutality of the real world and makes a powerful social commentary on how far those who believe something are willing to go to defend that belief.  Additionally, it is a startling social commentary on the power of free speech, the whimsy of the internet and its ability to distill major social and spiritual issues into a just a few words and images and also lighten  up Francis.


I'm reporting you all to the mods for humor shaming me.

Well if it's any consolation, my first impressions of the new terminator film were negative too. But the latest trailer has me................ believing?

This trailer does nothing for me.  In fact the teaser for QT's new movie Hateful 8 gets me more jazzed and it doesn't show anything from the film.

So the date of your original fight has come and gone. For some reason I thought it was April 26th.

Did your original fight happen or because you took that impromptu fight, did you skip it?

When is your next fight either way.

Just a quick update here.

While I have not been directly asking the questions every day, they have become a part of the unspoken ways in which I engage with her and I am grateful to God that we are enjoying an incredible season in our marriage now.  It is a sweet sweet time.

Amen.

I got started a long time ago, but have gone mostly fallow.  I made a good amount of money but made a lot of mistakes too, like holding stocks wayyyy too long.

I would get a dummies guide to investing as a baseline....that's what I did.

Ranking the DLC Maps:

5. Dragon's Teeth (I get wrecked on all of them)
4. Second Assault (love them, but Metro tho)
3. Final Stand (love them. all of them, but hangar 21 can be mega frustrating due to snipers)
2. China Rising (love all of them, easy to get spawn trapped if you're on the wrong side of Dragon Pass)
1. Naval Strike (boats. Oh those lovely boats)


Positions 3-1 are largely interchangeable, as all three of those packs are so daggon amazing. Second Assault (other than Metro) is excellent as well.

DICE has done an incredible job of continued excellent map design for each pack. Too bad the launch was such a disaster, or this game might have been considered perfect.

Top Class: Support (two words: unlimited ammo)
Top weapon: RPK12, 5,639 kills
Top vehicle: LAV/IFV: 2,812 kills

Also had my all time high score in a match last night: 19,777 points. Was bananas.

Road Warrior is in top 10 all time.

This movie looks like too much crazy. But I hope it's awesome.

I still have not seen and won't acknowledge Beyond Thunderdome.

19  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: How far would you commute for a significant pay raise? on: March 30, 2015, 02:59:36 PM
12 per hour more is no joke. I wish you had said percentages instead...to better get the weight of it.

But that = almost 500.00 a week and almost 25k per year. That is a a LOT of money..on top of the insurance savings...

Figure in wear and tear on your car too, though...

Not sure where you are in your life/family stages, but if you can grind that position out for a couple years knowing that it could raise your profile and get you even greater opportunity with  less sacrifice in the future, I'd do it.

Break a leg!  His preferably. (Its just an expression, I'm told)

I actually tried to do that during the fight.  My opponent never bothered to check any of my kicks. After I landed the first leg kick hard, he looked at me in horror and I knew he didn't want to be there anymore.  
4 hour drive, 66 seconds in the ring, 6 legs kicks for a TKO in the first.  Dude was out of shape and he looked scared.  Felt bad. I think his whole family came out to watch him fight. Drove home. High fived the wife and drank a little vodka leftover from Harkonis's last visit.

Congratulations, Kato!  So did he verbally quit?

Also, did you taunt his moms and pops after you leapt to the top of the cage?

Okay, I'm terrible at these games, but I just wanted to come in here and boast my all time best game.  First place!  3.00 D/K ratio.  2000+ score (more importantly, it was more than six hundred over the next lowest score). And, for the first time in my life, I called in my third score streak bonus: The Goliath.  I have no idea what happened to it.  I think it got destroyed.  It may have even been taken over by the enemy, if that's a thing, but who cares, I got to call it in.

I'm sure this'll mostly get a pat on the head and a response of "Isn't that cute" from many of you, but I'm psyched!

Better than I ever did in AW.   thumbsup

Like Cowboy Cerrone, Kato takes any fight, against any opponent at any time.

Good luck, Kato!

Second trailer makes it infinitely less interesting.

And I agree with you EngineNo9.


Pixar hasn't been must watch for me since that disaster TS3.

Cars franchise is trash
Haven't seen Brave.
Can't remember if I saw Monsters University or not...

Sorry guys, this is not fun to watch a team with recent super bowl potential get dismantled like this. 

Actually it is kind of fun.  Screw the 49ers ownership.

Have finally played through the latest map pack.

3 of the 4 maps I really like. Only have played Hanger 21 one time and got absolutely lost and destroyed.

Pretty sure I'm not getting hardline...as I'm still loving this game so much. Hopefully it won't become a ghost town when HL is released.

I submit the piece be named "Stool Reflection".

It's a REALLY good thing I don't have a 3D printer - I'd be totally up for using that on the tops of trophies. Or an Amiibo.

I would buy one for myself and gift some to friends!

Hark should incorporate this into his next dazzling T-shirt design.

C) Pooping on a stone wheel of some sort.

He does look pretty chill about the whole thing... kind of like 'Yeah. That's how you do it, baby. Nice 'n smooth. Aw, yeah. Billy Dee Williams got nothing on me."

Also he has amazing control and placement. No splash back on his shoes or clothing.
