Well I think it was more that:

he had a dislocated vertebra

Spoiler for Hiden:
True but a punch to the back is still kind of a silly cure for a bulging disc. If it was that easy, spinal surgeons would be out of business.   I guess if I can suspend belief enough to believe a guy can run around fighting crime in a bat suit  I can let this go too. smile

Finally saw this yesterday.  Overall, I really enjoyed it.   Bane could have been a little more like comic book Bane but he was still a good villian.  Hathaway was really good. I expected very little from her and was suprised by how good she was in the role.  There were some silly plot holes but it didn't kill my enjoyment.   For some reason, it was easier for me to swallow that

  I give the movie a thumbs up and I'm sure it will get a spot in my collection on blu ray.

I had checked the gamestop website and it was still showing up at 19.99.  Plus, my two local gametstops didn't have it in stock so I couldn't go in and check the price in store.   I would have loved to pick this up for $10.

Sounds interesting.  I'm kind of shocked this saw the light of day since the company that made the miniature game is out of business and the game isn't being made any longer.  I'll have to keep an eye out on this one.  I had some of the mini's but never actually played the game.

I love F1 and went to almost all of the races in Indy.  I just don't know if it is viable in the US.  Open wheel racing just isn't popular.  If you can't make it work in the Mecca of US auto racing, I don't know where it will work. 

I was under the impression that Indy worked fairly well up until Michelin-gate.

I think it did work pretty well.  The crowd was less than the Indy 500 or the Brickyard but it was still large.   I enjoyed it the most of the three.  I guess my point was it didn't work out well enough to keep it in Indy for whatever reason.  I think it was on the way out before Michelin gate.  Maybe Tony George and Bernie just couldnt see eye to eye.

Quote from: gellar on December 09, 2011, 07:56:31 PM

There's a severe shortsidedness to that perspective though:

Chris Paul is a Hornet for at most this season only.  The NBA can't keep him there past his contract.  The Hornets GM got what appears to be the greatest possible return for that asset and now, after one year, will get absolutely nothing.  That will kill the team.  No one is going to buy a team that will have literally no good players after one year.  No chance.

I have no idea why the NBA did this.  None whatsoever.


I agree 100%.  Paul isn't staying in New Orleans.  Next year he'll be a Knick.  At least the hornets would have gotten something in return for him.  Next year they don't get squat.  So next year if the team isn't sold, they have a small market team with zero talent.  Not very marketable.  Stern folded under pressure from the other small market owners.  I don's like the trend of teams loaded with super stars but this felt different from the Miami deal.  This was done the old fashioned way with a trade.

Thinking about getting AC on Onlive.  They have the preorder get a free console deal going.  I've been wanting to try out the service.   On the other hand, I ordered a new computer capable of playing new PC games so I'm not sure Onlive makes much sense for me at the moment.  Especially since I have all the major consoles.
60  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: UFC on Fox 1: Velasquez v. Dos Santos on: November 14, 2011, 03:44:15 PM
I didn't get the one fight thing either.  They had a full undercard that was shown on facebook and foxsports.com.  I think they should have showed the Henderson/Guida fight as well.   When you have guys with one punch knockout ability, there is always a chance of a quick fight.  I'm not sure this won over any new fans.  Either way, I'm glad to get some free fights.  I don't think they will make the same mistake twice.
61  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: UFC on Fox 1: Velasquez v. Dos Santos on: November 13, 2011, 07:51:51 PM
Im guessing the long time between fights hurt Velasquez.   I don't remember him looking that soft around the middle against Lesnar but I could be wrong.  What's more impressive is Dos Santos had a knee injury 11 days before the fight and was trying to rehab it right up until fight time.

My account was hacked last week.  Someone charged 10000 points to my account and changed the region to Brazil.  I registered a complaint with support.  I'm locked out from changing the region back as your only allowed to do it once per year.  So far I'm still out the bucks for the points.   They tell me it can take close to a month to get a complaint like this resolved.

I'm sad to see Borders go.  However, I have to say I spent more time browsing over the last few years than buying.  I'd find something I wanted to buy at Borders but end up buying at Amazon due to the cost savings.  Even with the going out of business sales at my local store, Amazon was still cheaper.  They just didn't/couldn't compete from a price point for me.  I do miss browsing through the rows of books but ebooks have won me over the last couple of years.  The instant gratification has cost me a few bucks too. smile

<shakes head at would might have been if Fedor had just signed with the UFC, taken the immediate title shot against Lesnar and won that match>

I don't know if it would have changed much.  Even if Fedor beat Lesnar,  I think Caine or Junior would have beaten him for the title anyway.   2 years ago Fedor vs Lesnar was the dream match up.  Now it looks like they both look pretty beatable.  Fedor more than Lesnar.    If Lesnar can improve his stand up,  he can still be a force.  I'm not sure what Fedor does to be relevant again.

Bullshit.

Yeah he was out momentarily in this fight, but have a rematch and it could go the other way just as easily.

You dont call a man done because he got caught for a split second, a minute into the first round.

sigh indeed.

I dont think anyone is calling him done due to  the flash knockout against Henderson.  It happens.  I think the three losses in a row are strong indications he doesn't have much left in the tank.   The Silva fight was brutal and hard to watch.  I just dont see anything that indicates he could beat man of the top fighters in MMA at the moment.   Maybe if he cut weight down light heavy weight  and corrected the flaws in his style that have showed up then maybe. Like I said earlier. Some fighters just get old fast.  I see strong indications that may have happened to him.  Shame.  I loved to watch him fight.
77  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Fedor v. Henderson on: July 31, 2011, 02:51:13 PM
Yeah, he is done.  He just comes out and swings for the knockout.   The guy starts bleeding in the locker room.    The eye that Silva mauled looked bad again last night.   I hope he has someone around him that can tell him it's time to hang up the gloves before he gets hurt.

I see this as a lose-lose for for Fedor.  If he wins, everyone will say he beat a smaller guy and that he must  be washed up to agree to the fight.   If he loses, people will say he is washed up because he couldn't beat a smaller guy.  I don't see the benefit other than a paycheck.  In all fairness, this  may be all he wants at this point in his career.  I don't see him winning a major title unless he drops weight.  The current group of heavyweights are  just too big.   Fedor has always looked pudgy around the gut.  I dont think it would take much for him to drop down.
