Also according to a quick review of said post history, it looks like you were last here in Dec 2012.  That's like 2.25 years.

Why starting off again with lies mirage?!  WHY?   icon_twisted

Now I'm going to have to go through your post history and see who you were feuding with... was it me?  If it was I don't remember.  If it wasn't, I don't remember that either.   icon_wink
43  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Break Out Your Ruler: Definitive Penis Length Study Concluded on: March 03, 2015, 12:29:05 PM

So how does the regular man size up? The mean length of a flaccid penis is 3.6 inches, and the mean length of an erection is 5.16 inches, according to a paper titled "Am I Normal?" published Tuesday in the British Journal of Urology....If you're keeping score at home, an average guy's erect circumference is 4.59 inches, the researchers found.

Discuss. Or don't. Just don't measure yourself at work.

50  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Agency in your Dreams? on: February 24, 2015, 02:30:21 PM
Had a dream I was captured by Isis (probably not a good idea to look at images of captured Peshmerga troops being paraded in cages before bed time).

In the dream I'm terrified because I'm familiar with what happens to the people they capture.  I wonder how I'll hold up to their propaganda whether I'll read their statements or if I'll be defiant.

They lead me into a basement and I see bloody hooks on the ceiling and I think to myself 'that's enough for me' and in the dream I close my eyes and then I wake up in real life.

I've been able to do this pretty consistently when having a bad dream for a long time now and it seems to be something happens that is a major stress point- like I can't find one of my kids or I've had a car accident and I realize this isn't real and I don't need to endure this. So I close my eyes and wake up IRL.

It doesn't have to be as traumatic (and it's usually not) as the ISIS dream, it can be something annoying like I can't find my keys or I've made a mistake at work.

When I was a kid I was able to exercise a little bit of agency in my dreams- like controlling what I saw, but nothing consistently.

What about you fellows?

Good point ATB, but there is one big difference between pro and amateur weigh ins.  Pro fight weigh-ins take place a day before, while amateur weigh in on fight day just a few hours or even less before they fight.  


 icon_eek Well yeah. That would make every bit of difference. Would totally stay at your weight then.
56  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Help/Advice for amateur fighting on: February 18, 2015, 06:59:08 PM
Yeah I can't officially help you, but from my years of watching MMA I've seen a few things...though I admit it's not an informed position.

There are pro fighters who cut 25lbs from their walking around weight- some even more.

Is there no way for you to cut that last 5 simply through dehydrating (in a managed way) and then re-hydrating after weigh in?

Or do you think those last five pounds would drain you so bad that you'd be bonked for the fight?

With the paucity of anything interesting to me in the gaming landscape right now, i have fired up my trusty DSL again and have been playing Elite Beat Agents.

DSL is still the best piece of gaming hardware ever. smile

Seeing that this thread is almost 9 years old, it's neat that GT is kind of like a historical record of my gaming past.

You talking about walking around in it because 'a Jedi wouldn't run' was one of my great 'WTF is this guy crazy' + 'Man this guy is awesome.' moments.

I've been using turbotax for pretty much as long as I've been paying taxes.  However, I'm got a sinking feeling that I've been leaving money on the table and am seriously considering an accountant this year.

What do you guys do?

Thoughts?

What does your team need to do this offseason?

Bills: Rebuild at Offense.  Again.  Rex Ryan comes in as head coach after being fired by the in-division Jets, which finished 4-12.  Kyle Orton decided to retire rather than stick around, and we will probably get to see another year of EJ Manuel struggle on the big stage, including in London vs. the Jaguars during Pink month.

Just like lynch, Manuel will become a superstar as soon as he leaves the bills.

Great anecdote from MMQB this week:


This comes from Jim Steeg, who for years ran the Super Bowl and big NFL events:

“Back in the seventies, the Dolphins were going to play the Raiders in Oakland. They practiced at the Oakland Coliseum on Saturday, and in the locker room Larry Csonka found laying there the Raiders’ game plan for the next day’s game. He gave it to [Dolphins offensive line coach] Monte Clark to give to Don Shula, which Monte did.

“The next day the Dolphins got beat by the Raiders. Csonka went to Monte and asked, ‘How did we lose? We had their game plan.’

“Monte’s response: ‘I gave it to Don and he threw it in the trash. He said, ‘We do not cheat!’ ”

Palin, who was not previously thought to be considering a run, told The Washington Post on Friday that she is mulling a bid. "You can absolutely say that I am seriously interested," Palin said.

The RNC should not even let her near this campaign.

It's not a joke to me. I'm far from the die hard fan I used to be, but allowing cheaters a pass will further deteriorate the integrity of the game.

It makes me mad.

It makes me mad that Brad Johnson did it. He was - I thought- a stand up guy and I used to cheer for him when I was in DC and he played for the Skins.  Now I think he's a piece of garbage.

I frigging hate cheaters.
76  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Anyone read The Order of the Stick webcomic? on: January 22, 2015, 04:07:53 PM
Finished the book and am now working on the commentaries.

I think the complexity of the story he's writing is well executed and the writing is still very solid.

However, the emotional impact (with the exception of a few strips toward the end) is significantly less than the last one.

I give it a good 4/5 and it's a solid continuation of the story.

Also, reading all of these throwback gags just a few pages apart from each other sort of diminished them and I had to remind myself that this was 5 years worth of material and some of these strips were separated by many weeks or months.

My decision now is do I read along for the rest of the way or do I wait another 5 years for the next book?

Not sure yet.
