$500 is for the new 160 GB pack.  There are still 80 GBs for $400.

Looks like you'll be able to do lots of parkour-style maneuvers as well.

If I hadn't just rented Casino Royale and watched the docs, I would have no idea what you were talking about.

Through an interesting confluence of events, a relative of someone who works at my company recovered the challenge coin of Michael Thornton from the floorboards of his car when Mr. Thornton had been riding with him.  I was able to see and hold the coin and was wired the rest of the day just from that.

I am the son of an Air Force retired Master Seargent, the nephew of a retired Marine and the grandson of a Navy Machinist. 

While I never got the opportunity to serve (medical reasons), I have the utmost respect for those who do.  Thank you for your service and sacrifice.

It's fun to come in here and watch people post about how Clone Wars is pre-adolescent or childish, when the original Star Wars was the same way...it wasn't made for adults, but for kids.  Only nostalgia makes you not see that.  I still watch childish things as an adult, so it doesn't bother me too much, but the way you guys gloss over some of the facts about Indiana Jones and Star Wars on this forum is amazing.  And this is from a guy who has a Star Wars-themed tattoo.

Your portrait is too dark to see it... nod

From the halls of Montezuma,
To the shores of Tripoli;
We fight our country's battles
In the air, on land, and sea;
First to fight for right and freedom
And to keep our honor clean;
We are proud to claim the title
Of United States Marine.

Our flag's unfurled to every breeze
From the dawn to setting sun;
We have fought in every clime and place
Where we could take a gun;
In the snow of far-off northern lands
And in sunny tropic scenes;
You will find us always on the job
The United States Marines.

Here's health to you and to our Corps
Which we are proud to serve;
In many a strife we've fought for life
And have never lost our nerve;
If the Army and the Navy
Ever look on Heaven's scenes;
They will find the streets are guarded
By United States Marines!!!

You have no ability to comment as you're not a Bills fan and don't know how these things work.

Absent a team from Buffalo, use logic: They'll have dropped 3 straight division games. Unless they win the division outright, they lose all 3 tiebreakers = No playoffs.

Read many of my posts?  Been a Buffalo fan for almost as long as you have, so if you're going to get pissy about it, do it at someone else.

Oh yeah!?

Seriously?  Sometimes, I think you are difficult for the sake of either a) being difficult because that's just your personality, b) you have a complex against being proven wrong, or c) you like playing a tool on the internet.

The search function is your friend.  Use it, and stop being condescending for no good reason.

Thanks, pr0ner.  And then there's always my backstory

Tech should leapfrog on strength of wins today.  It took OT for Bama to beat a recently ranked team.  We dismantled a Top 10 team.  Tech ... never ... punted.

If it comes down to it, Alabama is currently giving up 186 yards per game passing.  Tech could easily double that.  They're a lot better against the run, but then, heh, Tech doesn't do that much. 

I don't believe in this style point bullshit.   Please reference 1992 to see how much it matters.

Alabama will still be #1 tomorrow.

Two of the three BCS elements are human polls.  Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

Off the top of my head, it's probably an availability of funds issue.  They won't release it until they have actually received it themselves.  This process can take 7-10 days domestically and they can banks can put different levels of holds on them.  Heck, my bank put a 7-day hold on the check from my insurance company for the settlement on my car.

Another question:  Did they keep it as Disney as the last one where no one dies from the Hulk's actions, only their own stupidity?

No more "Disney" than Iron Man, as neither film really shows obvious deaths, but the destruction and carnage resulting from both film battles is not in short supply. 

Yeah there's no blood splattered on the screen, but I felt there were quite a few implied deaths from smashing.

Well at least that's better than Ang Lee, where they made it a "Beat you over the head with it" point that flinging a tank over a mile into the side of a mountain would result merely in a little ringing in the ears for the crew.  There's suspension of disbelief ... and then there's Ang Lee.  Which is now my new sig line.
