I expect the economic activity brought on by this party to single-handedly revive the economy.  Either that or open up a new fault line in the greater Phoenix area...

I'd recommend the Opryland Hotel.

Wait Jeff ... are you seriously recommending that someone go to a hotel as a tourist attraction.

Yes. I am.

You aren't the only one that would do that.  Not relevant to the OP, but this place has 109 rooms, all uniquely decorated.

I unfortunately do not remember to whom to credit the quote, but it went something along the lines of:

I just watched the first episde of the season off the DVR.  Certainly a good start.  The thread they set up for the season has promise.  It's all going to be up to the execution.  This one's never come close to dropping off my list once I started watching it, even if it is a JAG super-Navy-lawyer-man spin-off.

Honestly, I figured we would lose one of them.  I'm not prepared to hand my hat on the season and call it off like some produce I know..

Oh, and the Adrian Wilson hit is under review.

Quote
What league officials will be looking at is how Wilson took Edwards to the ground. Wilson's tackle will be evaluated for possibly violating the rule called "Unnecessary acts against a passer."  That rule states "a defensive player must not unnecessarily or violently throw him down and land on top of him with all or most of the defender's weight. Instead, the defensive player must strive to wrap up or cradle the passer with the defensive player's arms."
...
A possible fine likely won't be announced until Friday, when the league typically acknowledges disciplinary actions.

Quote from: Blackjack on October 07, 2008, 05:31:52 PM

I too learned the hard way not to commit to 3- or 6-month subscriptions unless I was truly hooked (I was, with City of Heroes, about 2004-2007). Even though I'm re-hooked on LOTRO at the moment, I'm sticking with month-to-month for now.

So when did you play WWII Online? I never knew anyone who actually played it for any period of time. I was curious about it (I'm a military shooter junkie though I think I've finally faded in my interest in that genre).

I was a paying beta tester at launch.  Nothing like spending 20 minutes jogging to the next town to get one-shotted, only to do it again.  I didn't stick around long enough for all of the inevitable patches.  I've heard it's gotten better, but I have't been tempted to go back.

I thought the movie rocked from start to finish, and had zero issues with sound (Bluray version). The movie requires a suspension of disbelief, for sure, but it achieves it nicely.

Regarding the final line, why did he openly say that to the press? (I don't know much Iron Man history)



After further review, I am wrong.

OH, and westbrook broke 2 ribs on his eighth play this week, so bullocks to the idea you faced a 'full' westbrook.  You faced a gimpy dude all afternoon.  At least the guys we faced were healthy.

In the last five years, the Bears records is 45-35 (.562).  The Slurs are 35-45 (.437).  The Bears have had three different 10+ win seasons in this decade, the Slurs 1.  The Bears have been to the Superbowl this decade.  The Slurs....haven't.

Reminds me of a Sports Night quote that I can't seem to find on-line, so here it is from memory, badly, no doubt...

1: Bob says it's the Giant's year
2: It's not.
1: Bob says they've got a strong team.
2: They don't
1: Bob says Barry Bonds can take them all the way
2: He can't and I'll tell you why.  Barry Bonds is prohibited from batting either directly before or after himself and it's a little hard to pitch from left field. 
8340  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WoW joins the dustbin... on: October 07, 2008, 04:06:39 PM
I decided to drop my WoW subscription.  With pressure from a friend of mine, I ground my Rogue the last 10 levels to get to 70, bought a purple from a guildie for 800g ... and never played again.  This was back in May.  I paid for an entire three month subscription without logging in once.  The WotLK content appeals to me a little on the conceptual level, but not enough to warrant the purchase of the expansion and the continuation of the fees.  Go gently into the night, Elyandra.

So WoW joins the dustbin on top of EverQuest, WWII Online, and City of Heroes.

I like me some John Mayer.  I have Room for Squares, Heavier Things, and the two-disc version of Continuum.  He's even got a Pandora channel from me. 

But then, I love Dave Matthews Band as well, and they seem to be mostly reviled on GT/OO as well.  Listen to what you like, but make sure to bring everyone else some Haterade next time.  icon_lol

+1 to Pete for Flyleaf and Evanescence.

Never got to that one.  I read the Xanth series until well after it jumped the shark, which was decent for the first dozen or so. I loved the first three books in the Apprentice Adept series (the last 4 were decent, but not up to the quality of the first ones).  Prostho Plus was another good one-shot.  Battle Circle was also a series I enjoyed.  I believe I had it in a 3-in-1 volume.

Pete got it.  Sorry you missed it.  That's the only film that Leary and Walken have been in together.

Also, my DVD trial ended and I really don't feel like spending $65 to take screenshots.  Anyone else have a recommendation for a program?

Palin reminds me of my first girlfriend.  She had plenty of opinions on things, but could not rationally defend any of these positions.  Over time, it became apparent that all of her opinions had been placed there by her step father.  To this day, I refer to her as a chocolate Easter Bunny: sweet on the outside, nothing on the inside.

If you don't mind, I think I may start using that to describe my mother-in-law.  Although she's more a dark chocolate Easter Bunny due to being more bitter. 

 icon_biggrin By all means.  Given that it's been 4 years since then, I don't get to use the line much anymore.  It would make me happy to see it in use again.

One of my co-workers said that we should take out loans from our 401K's so that there's less money in them to lose.

An interesting idea...

Assuming you're not in a Roth IRA, expect to lose 30% of the value when you remove it (+/- based on your tax rate).  You'll pay full income tax + 10% early withdrawl. 

No: not withdrawl, a *loan*
