When I got married I had ~$23k in credit card debt.

It's down to ~$1200 now on a 0% card.  It'll be paid off early next year.

All I get all of these for free from various deals:

The Sporting News - I've actually come to prefer this over Sports Illustrated (which I read for free as a hand-me-down from a friend).  I like the weekly updates on each NFL and MLB team.

PC Gamer - Good thing it's free.  I haven't seen one in awhile so maybe it's finally run out

PC Magazine - barely worth it even for free.

My free Sporting News sub expires at the end of the month so I just spent $15 to renew it for 5 years.  Now I'll see if my super-cheap renewal site is a scam.

They are not even making it to $800 now....with Madden and an extra controller!  icon_lol

Well, in all fairness, it is Madden....

I think I found why that auction went for so little:

It includes the system, Madden 07, Extra Wireless Controller and Talladega Nights Blue Ray DVD Movie

I figure the movie drove down the price by at least 25%.

From what I read about the launch in Japan, many of the purchasers were homeless chinese men and young chinese women, hired by Japanese businessmen like this guy so they can resell the Ps3s.

You're viewed as what you think you are.  Which means, yeah, I have some work to do in terms of self-esteem and self-respect, but I'm pretty good in terms of confidence regarding my looks.

To put it a different way, I'll fuck what's attractive to me.  A six, or even a five, that turns me on is fine.  But if I can't get it up, it's not worth my time.


I have this image of the women of NU sitting around and complaining because all the men are 5s and 6s.

Quote from: Sarkus on October 03, 2006, 06:34:40 PM

If you are drinking coffee black, sure.  But most of the coffee drinkers I know load up on sugar and cream or go to Starbucks and get some sort of Latte that ain't black by any stretch.  That's my point.  Roll Eyes

A tablespoon of sugar is 14.15 grams, so to get the equivalent of a can of coke you'd have to put in 2.7 tablespoons.

That's really, really a lot.

On the other hand, if this is accurate then you're much better off drinking coke than Starbucks.   eek

It's also easy to take shots at soda while ignoring the gallons of coffee some people consume each day.  Throw in some of the Starbucks varieties and you'd be healthier drinking soda with sugar in it.

Sugar content:

Coke Classic  39 grams
Coffee   0 grams


Starbucks "coffee drinks" are an entirely separate thing.  Those are more like dessert than coffee.

Thursday, September 28, 2006 -

Dear President Bush: We request that you order FDA Commissioner nominee, Andrew Von Eschenbach M.D., to rescind the FDA approval for the artificial sweetener, Aspartame. Its approval was forced through the FDA in 1981, and the USA has had 25 years to observe the incontrovertible medical effects from Aspartame, which derive from its being metabolized as methanol and formaldehyde, and two unessential amino acids, one of which, phenylalanine is neurotoxic lowering the seizure threshold and depleting serotonin and the other aspartic acid, an excitotoxin. - Senator Jerry Ortiz y Pino

If it was so toxic you'd think the effects would have become apparent after 25 years of heavy consumption...
377  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Number of Sodas per week. on: October 02, 2006, 10:42:54 PM
Zero.  I average about a can of soda a month.

Coffee, on the other hand - well, I drink about a pot a day.

More when the baby keeps me up at night, like she did last night.    mad

I've only seen Sleepless in Seattle and I consider it one of the worst films I've ever had the misfortune to sit through.

It's ~20 minutes of plot stretched out over an hour and a half.   And it's not even a good 20 minutes.

Seriously, the whole thing will fall apart when folks like the ACLU get hold of it.  ID theft is already HUUUUGE and this'll only add to it.  I've had my Identity stolen once already, I won't go through it again.  Now, if you will excuse me, I have to go put more tin foil on my hat.

Isn't preventing identity theft part of the stated motivation for this thing?

Of course we all know the real motivation is so the NSA can follow me as I go from work to home to work to home to work to daycare.

I pity the NSA fool who follows me and my boring-ass life.

Although the past ~10 seaons of the Simpsons have sucked ass, so you're kinda correct on that one.  But the first 5-6 seasons were the funniest thing on TV at the time

Robbins and Sarandon: Holding hands in first class.

The Shawshank Redemption
The Hudsucker Proxy
The Player
High Fidelity

I think Robbins should get a pass just for the first two films - although there is the "Mission to Mars" factor against him.

Sarandon can burn, and hopefully she'll take all known copies of "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" with her.

Joss Whedon - so maybe, finally, someday internet geeks will stop talking about Firefly.  It's over, move on

Julia Roberts - Hopefully there's enough room on the shuttle for her grotesque horse face

Tom, Katie and Suri - Katie hasn' done anything of note in years and if I want to see her boobs I can google.  Tom is overexposed and whacko.  Suri needs to go before she has a chance to further the Cruise line. 

Michael Bay  - so very many crappy movies

At least this part is true.

If Larry Johnson could have just thrown one block against Dallas then Trent Green never would have fumbled before the half and the Chiefs would have won that game, giving them the final playoff spot in the AFC and forcing Pittsburgh to watch the playoffs from home.

I keep reading about this game so I downloaded it to my work laptop.

40 minutes after I launched the game  it was still trying to generate a world.

The extra cool part is there's no way to stop it and task manager couldn't even kill it.  I wound up having to unplug and pull the battery from my laptop to kill  the damn thing.

Not to mention KC still has Priest Holmes and Willie Roaf.

My biggest problem with the Xbox 360 version (ok, problems...) are no accelerated clock, and no in game saves or sim to end option.  With a wife/kid playing uninterrupted football doesnt happen smile  Also no way to change the camera angles that I can see.  These probably arent a big deal to alot of folks, but for me their almost a dealbreaker.  


Weird - I can save in-game with the PC version. 

I hope they don't take that out when they upgrade the PC version to the 'next gen' engine - which probably will happen around Madden09
