1  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Colbert to replace Letterman on: Today at 02:26:04 PM
I'd love to see him do something along the Carson line with recurring characters and bits.  The Colbert character would fit right in with stuff like Carnac and Art Fern.

I'll probably pick up the LEGO games from Steam that I don't already own on 360.

Area 51: An Uncensored History of America's Top Secret Military Base

Aside from the unsourced speculation about the "grays" and craft of the Roswell crash, the book does have a lot of good information about the history of the actual aircraft and nuclear testing that went on out in the Nevada desert.  There was enough overlap between this text and Red Eagles that I believe the majority of the book to be well-sourced and true.

The stuff about the Roswell crash being a Soviet drone piloted from a remove aircraft and "piloted" by Dr. Mengele's teenaged science experiments?  Not so much.

It is if you don't want to just throw money at the problem and get crappy service all around for your trouble.

Down here, it's never left. I regularly get it when I done at Taco Bell. The griller is new, however.

John McCain is so schizophrenic for me. Every time he does something that earns my respect, he turns around and does something just as stupid. It's just waiting for the other shoe to drop.

The one benefit of being laid up sick in a hotel room yesterday was that I got to do a Farscape marathon.  Watched 13 episodes and wrapped up season 2.  I love this show, but when it goes off the rails, it REALLY goes off the rails.  One particular episode where John is, shall we say, "back home" was delightfully insane.  I about fell off the couch laughing when Crais showed up in heels.   icon_lol

So damn glad I gave this show another shot.   thumbsup

Spoiler for Hiden:
Crais: FREEZE! You're under arrest! You have the right to the remains of a silent attorney! If you cannot afford one... tough noogies! You can make ONE phone call! I recommend Trixie: 976-Triple 5-LOVE. Do you understand these rights as I have explained them to you?! Well do ya, PUNK?
Crichton: No...
Crais: Well... then I can't arrest you!

I like your style hombre, but this is no laughing matter. Assault on a police officer. Theft of police property. Illegal possession of a firearm. FIVE counts of attempted murder. That comes to... 29 dollars and 40 cents. Cash, cheque or credit card?

I was going to go to the Texas Pinball Convention for some Free Play goodness, but they want $40 to get in.

So I'm wide open. I'm sure some BF4 will be in there somewhere.

Tomorrow is board game day. 

Tonight and Sunday will be spent with the fiancée, and she doesn't like what BF4 does to my mood, so I'm not playing it on days that we get to spend together.

The fiancée picked it out for us this Sunday. I thought it was decent, but nothing to rave about. The 3D effects were toned down from what he expected after the first one.

And shouldn't the thread title be changed?

Today was Pay to Reserve a Wedding Photographer. Tomorrow is Pay for a New Washer. I might be able to squeeze some BF4 or something from the Steam backlog in there.

That Chuck Jones Farscape episode is one of my all-time favorite episodes of any show ever.
20  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS3]Gran Turismo 5 -EDIT : finally released on: February 27, 2014, 03:18:06 PM
So the question becomes whether or not to finally buy it so I can get the Top Gear test track and try to get it where I want it before then.
21  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (02/24) on: February 24, 2014, 05:58:57 PM
I have redeemed my code for Shadowrun, but I never finished the first campaign, and BF4 still has its hooks in me. No purchases will be made.
22  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Weekend Playlist -- 2/21/14 on: February 21, 2014, 08:22:03 PM
Tonight is the Imagine Dragons concert and tomorrow is board gaming goodness. I'll probably try to leverage a little BF4 in there somewhere.
23  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XB1/PS4/PS3/360/PC]Battlefield 4 on: February 19, 2014, 05:00:39 PM
I've been playing Conquest almost exclusively due to the longer game times, large maps, and vehicles.

My k/d is about on par with the day i started playing MP on consoles with CoD.


I now understand what is referred to as tank panic. When you're outfitted only with light arms and a tank comes around the corner and you realize that nothing you have will dent it, it sucks. I can only imagine the panic of a real soldier faced with that situation.
24  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Norway Attacks on: February 18, 2014, 08:11:13 PM
Agreed. I made a conscious choice to not bump the OO thread when I saw the news, as I didn't feel like dredging it all up again just to poke fun at this monster.

But I certainly don't wish any disparagement or disrespect on cr for making a different choice.
25  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: These 12 New Headline Trends Will Astound You! on: February 18, 2014, 03:09:04 PM
It's already turned into a mocking thing on reddit. The trend has quickly turned into a laughingstock. I'm sure the scummy marketers* will come up with something new when their click through rates tail off.

*I do not consider all marketers scummy, but there are plenty that are.

I'd have loved to have seen Oingo Boingo in concert.  Sadly that's obviously not gonna happen now without some reunion tour.  :/

Very much this.

Never going to happen.

Quote
When asked during a 2007 phone-in interview on XETRA-FM if he ever had any notions of performing in an Oingo Boingo reunion, Elfman immediately rejected the idea and stated that in the last few years with the band he had begun to develop significant and irreversible hearing damage as a result of his continuous exposure to the high noise levels involved in performing in a rock band. He went on to say that he believes his hearing damage is partially due to a genetic predisposition to hearing loss, and that he will never return to the stage for fear of worsening not only his condition but also that of his band mates.

Battlefield 4 (PC) to get all the free goodies for weapons I haven't unlocked or don't want to use for ones I have.

When you get to the point where you're aggravating the Powers That Be in your own party, you might not be long for this world.

Quote
By forcing the Senate to round up 60 votes to end debate and force a final vote on a clean increase of the debt ceiling, Cruz knowingly complicated things for the top two Republicans in the chamber -- Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) and Senate Minority Whip John Cornyn (Texas). Both men face primary challenges from their ideological right and neither relished the idea of helping break a filibuster for a debt ceiling increase with no Republican proposals attached.
...
There is nothing that politicians -- and especially Senators -- hate more than being forced into a politically uncomfortable vote by a colleague of the same party. McConnell and Cornyn, both of whom are favorites to win their primaries, will never forget Cruz's move this past week.  And, Cruz is plenty smart enough to realize that.

Cruz, ultimately, wants to be president. And, he may well seize his high profile and his status as a hero among the tea party to run in 2016. (If he runs, he is either in or very close to the top tier of candidates.)  If Cruz doesn't win (or doesn't run), he won't be up for re-election until 2018.  He may well run for a second term but if he decides at some point between now and then -- or even after he is re-elected -- to go the Jim DeMint route and simply walk away from the Senate, don't be surprised.

Cruz won't be climbing the leadership ladder. Ever.

Quote
Azodicarbonamide is used as a food additive, a flour bleaching agent and improving agent. It reacts with moist flour as an oxidizing agent. The main reaction product is biurea, a derivative of urea, which is stable during baking.
...
In the United States, azodicarbonamide has generally recognized as safe (GRAS) status and is allowed to be added to flour at levels up to 45 ppm.
In the UK, the Health and Safety Executive has identified azodicarbonamide as a respiratory sensitizer (a possible cause of asthma) and determined that products should be labeled with "May cause sensitisation by inhalation." The World Health Organization has linked azodicarbonamide to "respiratory issues, allergies and asthma." Britain, Europe, and Australia now ban its use in food.

Toxicological studies of the reactions of azodicarbonamide show that it is rapidly converted in dough to biurea, which is a stable compound not decomposed upon cooking.

Drops February 14th.  And apparently season 1 is available with Director commentary from David Fincher and Joel Schumacher.

The fiancée and I are working through season 7 at the moment. 8 is on streaming, and 9 is current, I believe.

They've done a good job of switching things up, bringing in some unique supporting characters, and not taking themselves too seriously in the long run.
