Simple solution for this waste of skin is to stick him in general population with his clown hair, and let them sort it out, prison style.

I think you'll be disappointed if you think this is going to be a high fidelity tank sim.  They've already said it's not.

I think it's a great idea in concept, but I really don't think it's going to amount to much.  Certainly not until they fix the online services for the DCS products.
I play a lot of A-10/Black Shark 2, and the multiplayer interface is bad.

I'm not arguing the call, I just think it's funny that NOW they decide to make good calls.

Congrats to the Kings.. much deserved win.

But who calls a 5 min. major in a potentially series deciding finals game?  Sums up the entire season with regards to officiating.

Not to take anything away from the Kings amazing run.. they've played by in large perfect hockey and deserve this cup - no contest.

But beyond the royal rumble that was the first round, this has been the most uninteresting playoffs I can remember in my 30+ years of watching hockey.

I'm just glad my OKC Thunder are getting it done.

Yeah, this game seems particularly divisive.  Most reviews are fairly warm, but Kotaku and Tom Chick really seem to hate it and the guy in the Game Informer "Test Chamber" seemed completely befuddled about where to go, what to do, or how to kill the NPC who started following him.

Everything I've seen of the gameplay so far seems stupendous, though.  I think my main guy will be USMC Harkatonis.  Half arch-mage, half mage-archer, always to the point!  YAAH!!

Tom Chick hates everything that other people might like.  That's his schtick.

It may still work, but you could sign up for a 7 day trial of IGN Prime, and then immediately cancel it, or cancel before the end of 7 days.  You get a lifetime 15% discount at Gamersgate, and even after cancelling it still works.

Edit - Looks like they've removed the trial, but it might even be worth a 1 month subscription if you can keep the discount.

Well, to be fair to them, they were down 1-0 at the time of the partying.  You know, the night/morning before game 2.

It's probably cool in Russia, so who knows.

I expect game 3 to be nasty.

Guess the boys were out partying when they shouldn't have.  Crazy, especially down 2-0.

Like I said, my main focus is to add some strength/core work with my sport specific training which once Summer hits, is never a problem to get done.  I would never drop $120 on workout videos, but I was able to borrow them, and I like that they are reasonably short, and require no extra equipment.

I'm not one to criticize workout regiments (not suggesting that Blackadar is, either) and am merely happy to see you doing more for your overall fitness.

However, Blackadar does have a point in terms of program effectiveness.  As he's said, the reason programs like Insanity work is primarily because of diet, not necessarily the regiment itself.  Many start programs like Insanity to lose fat, and in most cases if a diet system as well as the exercise program are followed, positive results can be seen.  And in your case, no need for equipment is a plus.

That's what I mean, once summer comes motivation becomes less of an issue as my triathlon club has regular training days throughout the week. 

Fortunately you got the videos for free.  Otherwise I would have suggested using the entry fee to actually purchase equipment rather than workout videos (assuming ample space).  Strength training and diet modifications would allow for extremely efficient workouts, noticeable progress, and zero need for cardio (or any additional cardio to your current training program).  A barbell, plates, and a bench are pretty much all you need to hit your entire body.  

Or, if you still want better strength (merely focusing on core isn't necessarily enough - full body strength training will do more for you and still include your core), have you looked into books on body-weight exercises?  For example, You Are Your Own Gym.  If you burn out on Insanity, maybe something like this would allow you to develop your own workouts, manage your exercise time effectively, and get the specific results you want without any need for messing about in front of the TV.  

Just another option depending on your progress with Insanity.  And with summer coming, who doesn't like exercising outside?  There really isn't a need to "train 'till you puke" or even at such a high heart rate to get results.  You're also less likely to burn out on a program that might eventually lead to feelings of dread.  Some argue that high-intensity training is more effective than general weight training, especially when considering heart rate.  Try a set of heavy deadlifts and see where your heart rate is.  Your cardiovascular fitness may see an improvement, but overall strength may be less pronounced.

Even Penner tweeted after about the hit, asking if anyone saw the license plate of that truck that hit him? 

I like Penner.

But for the record, I love Flying Monkeys (I live in Parry Sound, 1 hour away), but have found some of their recent offerings very inconsistent.  On draft, Smashbomb is amazing.. but the bottles seem to lose a LOT of the character.

Went to the beer store this Saturday on a whim. Picked up a 6pack of Smashbomb Atomic IPA from The Flying Monkey brewery http://theflyingmonkeys.ca - they are located up in Barrie, Ontario - about 1.5 hrs North of Toronto.
The beer was refreshingly different - the hops used in this brew they call Citra Hops - while the beer tastes like beer it has a grapefruit bitter sweet type finish. Not overpowering by any means but something that I could really enjoy while sitting by the pool.

Available in Ontario AFAIK. Give it a shot on a hot day or with a Mexican or seafood meal - good pairing options IMHO.


Forget Smashbomb, it's inconistent as hell in bottles.  Get yourself some Muskoka Mad Tom, preferably in cans.  Amazing.

I should clarify that I'm not going from doing nothing, I just need to do more.

I did run a 30km road race in March, which I was undertrained for but did complete.  I do run a couple of times a week, and did a fast 10km yesterday.

I'm starting the Insanity workouts, as I borrowed from a friend.  That starts tonight so we'll see how it goes!

I guess I should have qualified my post by saying I do not believe at ALL that Bruins fans were responsible for this.  I just found it very unfortunate that stuff like this even hapens in 2012.  I would say the majority of Bruins fans I've had discussion with over the past year or so, have been nothing but good people.

I bet Lu goes to the Bolts.  Don't his wife and kids live there?

I could see Yzerman and Lu getting along.  You know wheverever he goes, he's going to want to prove Vancouver wrong.
I like Lu, and I'm a bit sad with the treatment he's recieved in Vancouver.  Hopefully they don't do the same to Corey.

Fruit in beer is a terrible idea, but it's so subtle that it works here.

As a rule I object to adulterants in beer. Fruit in particular is for children's beers. But there are exceptions. A lemony summer ale cuts the thirst on a 100 degree day. Either Harpoon or Sams did an oyster stout last winter that was surprisingly good -- it was a mineral/saltwater taste, not even remotely fishy. Harpoon was showing a maple wheat last weekend that didn't suck as expected. So I will not dis your raspberry beer without trying it.

The watermelon beers hitting the shelves this summer are universally bad, though.



I already mentioned it and it's not really a " fruit" beer per se, but Festina Peche does rock for it tart goodness. It does contain fermented peaches, but you really don't taste the fruit.

I just bottled  homebrew Berliner Weisse.  Half of the batch went in as is, and the other half spent 2 weeks on some frozen raspberries.  Should be a great thirst quencher those Hot August Nights
