I'm still trying to figure out how Sally Fields is a douchebag.

Because she's a pimp for Boniva?

Maybe.  I dunno.

My only regret ... is that I have ... Bonitis...

Yeah, really I'm only wanting a PS3 for MLB the Show, but I'm starting to get confused.  For instance, there are some 80 GB models with BC, but it's only software emulation so some games don't work well.  There are 6 separate SKUs for a system that just came out two years ago.  How does that make sense?

Because Sony believes that instead of dropping the price, the consumer wants 'extra value' (bigger HD, more bundled games, etc) with their PS3.

And yes, the 80GB models with 'limited' (about 75-90%) BC are now EXTREMELY rare - there hasn't been a model with any BC at all in ages.

I bought one last summer with my stimulus check.  It was the MGS4 pack that released in June.

I didn't get home in time, but I have it set to record next week for a trial.

Life is awesome imo.  The second season finale was last night.  I picked up the first season (11 episdoes) on DVD from an Amazon sale.  I'm actually surprised that Season 2 was 21 episodes.  It seems like it went by a lot quicker than that.

I have not watched the show from either source, but from what I hear, the endings to the shows are substantially different depending on which side of the pond on which it was filmed.
7606  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Thinking about getting a PS3... on: April 09, 2009, 01:19:40 AM
Alefroth, there were some 80 GBs that were BC, but not all of them, and I don't believe the new ones are.  I specifically waited for them to come back out last summer to ensure that I could still get my PS2 goodness on.
7607  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: The Unusuals on: April 09, 2009, 12:37:49 AM
I have not heard of this show.  If I get out of work to watch it, I may give it a look.  It's got to be better than the first episode of Surviving suburbia, Bob Saget's new show.

I can't really see what they could effectively foreshadow.  The first picture was almost a throwaway story with no lasting impacts that I recall.  2-4 were a grand story arc, sort of, and after that, it kind of goes off the rails again into set piece stories. 

There are more than 4?   icon_eek

I had no idea.  I did know there were 15 or 20 different CSI/Law-and-Order type offshoots on television, but I didn't know there were so many films. 

And a cartoon.

There are six centered around the full original cast, and a seventh that bridges the original series with Next Generation

  • The Motion Picture
  • The Wrath of Khan
  • The Search for Spock
  • The Voyage Home
  • The Final Frontier
  • The Undiscovered Country

The crossover movie was Generations

Final Frontier was bad.  Undiscovered Country was pretty good.  And I liked Generations.  

After that, it's all Next Gen until this coming reboot.

  • First Contact
  • Insurrection
  • Nemesis

Since this is before everything that has come before, I think the worst you'll see is foreshadowing.

Do not go to that link if you have One-click ordering turned on.

More of a warning than an actual immediate threat.  The device is listed at a 5-figure price.  Accidentally clicking on a purchase link if you had one-click ordering on would be bad.

Be careful with some of the brands.  If I recall, some of them contain Tylenol in addition to the caffeine, which has lead to toxicity when people pop NSAIDs with caffeine pills. Always read your labels.

Anyways, its obviously a hoax, or something that has a simple explanation. As I understand the article, the watches WERE around at that time, its just the name "swiss" on the back thats throwing them off...could be a gazzillion explanations for that

The simplest explanation is often the best.  Simply put, sometime in the last 100 years, someone broke into that tomb wearing that watch and lost it.  The archeologists who believed that the tomb remained sealed are mistaken.

Dirk Gently would be very disappointed in you.

I'm willing to chalk up any opening weekend numbers to the fact that a film has and has reached their target audience.  Reaching their target audience would be the only "something right" I'm willing to give a film based on opening weekend. 
7630  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [Stargate SG-1] Does it get better? on: April 06, 2009, 07:39:16 PM
Absolutely.  Although it's been a while since I was actively watching due to a Netflix issue, they do pick up.  Some of the episodes are hilarious (to me) and once they start developing their direction, it really gets good.  Next up for me would be Season 8.  And I will be watching 9 and 10 because I actually liked watching the new cast members when they were on Farscape.  Season 6 (The Season Without Daniel Jackson) was a bit of a bump, but was still ok.
7631  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: WTF? on: April 06, 2009, 06:22:38 PM
Take it as a warped reading of thinking about those left behind.  All the suicide talk runs toward thinking about those around you and the pain that they would suffer if you killed yourself.  To someone in that mindset, it's not a large leap to think, "Hey, I'll just take them with me.  Problem solved."  And I would figure that argument to hold more weight if they believe in a happy, fun afterlife.

Franziskaner FTMFW!

Quote
The name of Franziskaner can be traced back to the oldest privately-owned brewery in Munich. It was founded in 1363 in the heart of town by a brewer named Seidel Vaterstetter. Being located next to a Franciscan monastery, it took on the name by which it is known today: Franziskaner.

Quote
All of Franziskaner's weiss beer products - Hefe-Weisse Hell and Hefe-Weisse Dunkel - are top-fermentation beers noted for their agreeable carbonation levels and zesty wheat flavour. The consistently high quality of our products makes Franziskaner weiss beers a refreshing taste sensation of a special sort. All Franziskaner weiss beers are brewed in strict adherence to the Bavarian Purity Law of 1516.

The three slain officers were Eric Kelly, Stephen Mayhle and Paul Sciullo III. Kelly had been on the force for 14 years, Mayhle and Sciullo for two years each. Another officer, Timothy McManaway, was shot in the hand and a fifth broke his leg on a fence.

"A Part of America Died"
 
Somebody killed a policeman today,
and a part of America died.
A piece of our country he swore to protect
will be buried with him at his side.

The suspect that shot him will stand in court,
with counsel demanding his rights.
While a young widowed mother must work for her kids,
and spend many long, lonely nights.

The beat that he walked was a battlefield too,
just as if he'd gone off to war.
Though the flag of our nation won't fly at half mast,
to his name they will add a gold star.

Yes, somebody killed a policeman today,
in your town or mine.
While we slept in comfort behind our locked doors,
a cop put his life on the line.

Now his ghost walks the beat on a dark city street,
and he stands at each new rookie's side.
He answered the call, of himself gave his all,
and a part of America died.
