8081  Non-Gaming / Political / Religious Nonsense / Re: Israel Strikes Gaza on: January 07, 2009, 04:16:55 PM

Quote from: Brendan on January 07, 2009, 03:07:23 AM

Israel appears to be using white phosphorous shells.  Classic non-denial denial:  "The Israeli military last night denied using phosphorus, but refused to say what had been deployed. “Israel uses munitions that are allowed for under international law,” said Captain Ishai David, spokesman for the Israel Defence Forces.

WP is legal under international law as a smokescreen, but is banned by Geneva for use in civilian areas.

WP is not scheduled under the Chemical Weapons Convention, which Israel signed but did not ratify in any case.

Why do you have an extra DVD?

Either we sent you an extra DVD rental from your Queue, or you recently changed the allocation of DVDs between your profile(s) and your main account.

So I should have two DVDs (my plan) waiting for me today ... and a third waiting for me tomorrow?  Thanks, Netflix... saywhat  paranoid

You sure are being mighty touchy about a guy who has been charged with three felonies and two misdemeanors.

In the event that this was directed at me...

Spoiler for Hiden:
I'm not being touchy about the newest member of the local jail, but I do think some of the responses are disproportionate to the author's post.  If he came in here stating the facts then asked how his buddy could get ROR or the charges dropped, then he would certainly be deserving of an OMGWTFDUMASS.  As it was, he came in asking for thoughts from some of our more jurisprudent members.  Yeah, the guy's buddy should be using some of the brain cells that he has left, but it's my opinion that Glycerine was deserving of a tad more respect than some of our members were prepared to show him today.

"I came in here for advice!" "Oh, I'm sorry, Off-Topic is for abuse."  ;c)

If not, feel free to disregard.

I assume you mean catching cheaters, not actually using it yourself.

I heard a guy in FFA last night trying to justify his use of one in Makin due to he'd never tried it before and as soon as he ran out of ammo, he'd have to leave it anyway.   Roll Eyes  Good one.  He got reported.

And another one on Seelow are the rock-humpers.  On the side with the water tower, to the right as you're facing the end of the map, there's apparently enough small ledges to climb your way up the rock face.  It takes a fair amount of work from what I saw last night.  And I reported both of them that I did see. 

If this is the Christmas bonanza that I was told to expect from the newbies, where can I return it?

I would say that without knowing the state he was in and the governmental level of the prison, any info would be rampant speculation.  It it was a federal/state prison, I would imagine that the local charges above are going to be the least of his worries in the near future.  

Also, it sounds like the marijuana charge is the least of them.  It's the other pills that are going to be the big issue.  I would expect the prior to factor in heavily when it comes to bail, the willingness of the DA to deal, and the sentencing.

It's a possibility vs. probability argument.  Fire up Madden and try to run Westbrook against a full punt rush.  Even the FG coverage leaves a man or more back to account for other things.

The idea that you can be 100% successful is completely off base.  Run 100% of the time and there's 8 men in the box with three backs covering the outside.  Pass 100% of the time and you're only getting three rushers while you have 8 people covering your 5 receivers. 

The trick is to get more coverage to think you're doing the opposite.

Reminds me of my iPhone purchase, but in a different way.  I had to go through the store and order it from them and wait rather than picking it up at an Apple store due to an account relocation. After going to the store at 7 p.m. on a week night, I was left to cool my heels for a full hour before the one guy capable of performing the activation was available.  When I walked in, I had picked up $60 of accessories to purchase.  As time went by, I started putting them back.  When they finally got to me, I asked point blank for a free accessory for my trouble and was told "we don't do that."  When he got to the point in his spiel where he asked me if I wanted any accessories to go with it, I told him directly, "After an hour, I'll get them somewhere else."  He was apologetic and didn't attempt to press me on the issue.  He knew that he had lost a sale and a good commission off those accessories due to my wait.

When you rotate it, is the screen horizontal like a table or vertical like a wall?  If horiz., the sensor is not being triggered.  Hold it vertical when you rotate it.  If it still doesn't work, call Apple.

I loved the interactions between the Doc, Jewell and Al.

Speaking of Jewell... is she acting or is she really disabled in some way?  If that's acting, she's amazing.  If she's really disabled... that just as amazing.

The idea behind blackouts is to force people to buy tickets to the game.  Until Philly plays AZ in Phoenix and it doesn't sell out, you should be fine.

New Year's Eve was a blast.  I made the flip to prestige about two hours before the year ended.  And promptly began bitching about not having the kits the way I like them.  mad  Ah well.  I doubt I'll keep the interest around enough to make the flip a second time, but you never can tell.

Jake was kind enough to let me glom onto his games last night, made even more fun when his two brothers showed up.  We even picked up Kato for a few rounds before I headed off to bed at 1 a.m. ... right when his Harkness showed up to join us.

Watched it this afternoon.  It's down to one showing at the mall AMC theater.  Which means it should be headed for optical disc-ing quickly.  I enjoyed it.  It wasn't anything spectacular to write home about, but I enjoyed it. 
8118  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Are you a theater goer? on: January 02, 2009, 02:14:35 AM
Just got back from the theater for QoS before it leaves for the optical disc-ery.  Got there 20 minutes early, got a seat on the rail (no one in front of me for an accidental kick).  The only thing that was memorable about the non-film experience was that the first half of a part of 4 split around me when they arrived.  I found it odd when one of them stayed to my left, and the other crossed to my right.  The women folk arrived during the previews, when one of them asked if I would move down.  I countered that I had my seat due to the rail in front of me, and she let it go.  Moving down would have put me in seat-kicking territory.  I do my best, but am usually good for one accidental tap.  I usually apologize when I do it, but again, that's why I took my seat at the rail.
